Homeland Review: Throwing Your Life Away

I am a late comer to Homeland! Did anyone notice in the preview of the next season when Carrie is lying on the couch Saul is about to touch her stomach... maybe she is pregnant with Brodie's child? I think there is stilla high possibility Brodie was in in it with Abu Nazeer as Nicholas said - we don't know what they discussed, and we do know Brodie is a brilliant liar. He seemed to know from early in the episode he would be leaving soon. Quinn is so awesome and so handsome, it looks like he has a pretty set role next series which is great! I am glad Saul's wife is coming back to. She seems to be a character with depth!

Royal Pains Review: Off Key?

Divya did allude to her preganancy briefly when she wandered if her child would be musical, but pregancies go for a long time, and she is a very work focused person, not every single episode is going to be her constantly thinking about her pregnancy, it's there, she continues her day to day life - BooM!
Boris didn't need to be in the story this episode, as he is not always relevant either... Hank also continues his day to day life in between the Boris dramatics! I personally love the Boris dramatics, it gives us a fun little conspiracy to take us out of the Hamptons occasionally! I think the new cases, and the new personalities on the show are awesome, I don't feel the show has any trouble finding its feet. :)

Royal Pains Review: Off Key?

I don't think Jermeiah needs to be in every episode... he is a supporting charcater like Boris NOT a main character. Their stories recur through the show... they aren't the BASIS of the show. The basis of the show is Hank-med's operations in the Hamptons, and a big part of that is watching Hank, Evan, Paige & Divya interact with a whole cross-section of people, from the aristocratic Blythe's to the highly talented composers to the average working class man like the police man. I think tonight's episode brought it back to that and I loved it!! Paige's new boss didn't have a migraine - that was the point! He was just trying to avoid the emotional scene with a Patron who truly loved her painting! I thought the end scene with Molly and Hank was actually very moving... Who hasnt had that troubled teen angst with their parents, where they love and resent them at the same time!

True Blood Review: Burning Man

The reunion of the Newlins was just so classic!!! I really hope there'll be some follow up scenes, I am so happy they've kept those characters!! - - Although the comedy of the Newlins lifted the darkness of that whole section a little, the reality of the experimental camp is really freaky - True Blood is pretty political this season - is seems to be referencing the Holocaust camps a bit wouldn't you think?
Maybe Jason is turning into a were-Panther? That story was always left pretty unresolved.
Jessica is more gorgeous every week. The scene with Erik and Willa in the coffin was very intimate, he is a great character. Nice to see Lafayette back to his old fiery self!! Loving the Bellefleur story!! There does seem to be something off about the new Fae boy... Why isn't Warlow trying to kill the Grandpa as well?
Great episode!

Great episode! Darius is sooo handsome! I am glad they picked him... and Dany is so beautiful, she gets more wonderfl every episode. I am pretty sure that Robb Stark will meet an untimely end before too long, even though he has a lot of screen time, they don't really ever make him a character you could like or feel for in any way. Arya is such a little champion!! It was nice to have a break from the Theon torture scenes, and also a bit less of the wall for once. Did you notice the face in the tree that Sam and Gillie passed - I have a feeling this will definitely be back. Sam is seriously a dope, I don't believe he left the knife there! That original raven... was it the three eyed one?

Wow... Its so great they managed to give the Porter brothers some relevance in the final episodes of the show. Jack is actually really manning up. I think the Graysons are the best characters on the show... more so the parents. For all their evil ways, scheming, lying, and manipulating, you still see the humanity in them. Especially Victoria... she is an amazing character... despite all her evil ways she still manages to make you feel emotionally invested in her character. Can't wait for the next season!!

Game of Thrones Review: Honor Thy Father

I think this is the season of Jaime... he seems to even outshine Tyrion and Tywin this season - not easily accomplished - but the more we learn about each Lannister, the more wonderful they all become as anti-heroes. Its funny because in the books, you are always so solidly behind the Starks, but the depth of the Lannister characters in the HBO series is so well done, you can't help loving them equally! The Dany scene was amazing... I loved the introduction of Greyworm! Arya was awesome as always... Every character contributes so much in their small amount of screen time - its really impressive!

Amaaazing episode!!! I have read the books many years ago, and knew the scene with Danaerys was coming, but seeing it played out Visually was breathtaking!!!! She really looked like a Warrior leader when she spoke in High Valyrian and she lead her men out of the enclosure!! My God!!!
You didn't have a chance to mention the story with Theon and... I don't know if we are told who he is yet! This is so terrifying!! Poor Theon, he has done some stupid and evil things but I feel so sorry for him, everything always goes wrong.
I love all the Lannisters and the many shades of their person... Arya is still a little Hero!! Both Sansa and Margaey looked breathtaking this episode!!

This was my favorite season so far! I can't even decide whether I think Hank is better off with Paige or Karen, but it was so nice to see him just really like both of these women, to the point he was confused himself. Generally he just spends his time moping about Karen, using the other women as filler, and not particularly seeing who they are at all. He really truly cared about Faith, he just isn't ready to totally give up on Karen yet, becuase he knows she still loves him. I really loved the Atticus storyline throughout the whole season. I think this last episode had such lovely scenes, where Karen talks to him, 'WHat do you want me to say.' It's very slow, real life, it's beautiful. And Hank lying in the bed with the heart broken Atticus was great. Any season that can have Lou Ashby and Richard Bates one episode after another + an additional atticus is AWESOME!!
