The Big Bang Theory Review: Solving the World's Energy Crisis with Potatoes
5/3/2013 8:20 AM
I could have watched Bob Newhart do any routine he chose. The cast of the big bang theory is great, but Newhart is fabulous.
Arrow Review: Atonement, Rescue and Sexual Innuendo
5/2/2013 7:12 AM
I know we love to hate Moira, but I disagree. She didn't know about great undertaking until Robert had c omitted himself, was against it when she found out, and had nothing to do with Robert's death. Then Malcolm threatens her family so she plays ball, but when she tries to break away Malcolm has Walter kidnapped so she commits to Malcolm to ensure Walter's safety. How does this make her evil? She knows what Malcolm will do if she doesn't support him. He'll kill even more of her family. I find her story tragic and sad, but not evil. You try living under those conditions and tell me what you would do.
The Following Season Finale Review: Finishing the Story
4/30/2013 4:59 PM
I didn't forget about the girl next door (and she was a good twist on what that phrase is supposed to mean). I just can't believe that the fbi didn't insist on greater security for Hardy and Claire because they would be great focus of whatever revenge from followers.
I think Joe had his son kidnapped because he hoped that the story would go in a different direction. He hoped to reconcile with Claire and ride off into some mysterious murderous sunset with them. But he did say that the story had changed. And what father wouldn't want to be with his only child.
It was a fine finale and given all the literary parallels, I don't think that it could have gone much differently.
Bones Review: Will You Marry Me?
4/30/2013 4:43 PM
I concur. Pelant this episode did cross the line from eyebrow raising dubiously impressive to ridiculous. I think Hart Hanson and crew have watched too many episodes of "Pretty Little Liars". Everything was predictable in this episode, right down to the ending. Bones' apparent heartbreak half's salvaged it.
Defiance Review: Bugged By Visions
4/30/2013 4:37 PM
I don't think Nolan was discounting Irisa's visions because they are alien to him. He probably didn't know what was going on and she does suffer from ptsd, as shown in the last scene. I predict much angst in that relationship which saddens me. Nolan really does love Irisa. I love Alak and Christie. I hope he grows more of a spine. If he can't defend her against hellbugs, at least he should stand up for her to his father while she is in the room. But he shows a modicum of promise.
I love Julie Benz but her character doesn't interest me much.
Hawaii Five-0 Review: Personal Safety Waiver
4/30/2013 4:30 PM
Savannah rubbed me the wrong way. So I wasn't a big fan of the episode. I just kept thinking that it was a waste of Wo Fat to use him in this episode. But I look forward to seeing him escape (or face off with Mama McGarrett)
The Good Wife Season 4 Finale Review: Personal Sabotage
4/29/2013 1:37 PM
In Peter's defense, he is threatened by Will, because of Alicia, and so he probably did not react with the head on his shoulders. He finally wins back Alicia, and his biggest threat to his personal happiness now threatens his career as well. Now Peter should hire his own people to investigate and then come forward. But with as corrupt as Chicago politics are, Illinois is the state where governors make license plates, this is a non issue.
And with the show called "The Good Wife" was Alicia's choice a surprise?
Blue Bloods Review: The Zombie Drug
4/27/2013 12:35 PM
I understand the need for rules, especially that one. But I think a healthy dose of common sense was what Frank brought to it. He couldn't completely let the officer off the hook, but the officer also didn't deserve to be fired. He potentially saved lives and never fired his weapon. The expectation for first responders, whether cops or docs, to be perfect is asinine.
The Vampire Diaries Round Table: "The Originals"
4/26/2013 10:45 PM
My hope: the writers on TVD run out of material for Caroline and she's sent to New Orleans. Really they've seemingly run out of material already so...Please???
The CW Picks Up The Originals for Series, Renews Hart of Dixie and Beauty and the Beast
4/26/2013 10:41 PM
Despite the numbers not being great for the back door pilot for "The Originals", I think the "audition" was merely a formality. Good thing: Elijah will be back every week!
The Big Bang Theory Review: The Unresolved Cliffhanger Problem
4/26/2013 3:20 PM
Shamy has really come into their own. It's so much fun to see them now. I love the progress in Penny and Leonard's relationship. Raj is too funny.
TV Ratings Report: An Original Failure?
4/26/2013 3:17 PM
It would have been better with Caroline, though what wouldn't be in tvland? But I enjoyed it. I bet that cw will pick it up considering they potentially have a few slots to fill and not much else of interest in development.
Beauty and the Beast Review: "Playing with Fire"
4/26/2013 2:55 PM
The data transfer was rather ridiculous. Then again we're watching a show about a hybrid person hiding in tunnels like some benevolent Phantom of the Opera.
It seemed like a waste of the talents of Luke Bryant (Cole David, aka Nathan from Haven). But the progress the show made in the characters and mythology was good. Finally.
The Vampire Diaries Review: EM Marks the Spot
3/29/2013 6:00 PM
That Katherine was so desperate to get the cure so as to keep Klaus from hunting her anymore, well after 500 years her ruthlessness is almost understandable. It did seem like she truly cares for Elijah, but if he truly knows what she is, why was he surprised Katerina killed Jeremy and lied to him? She's done worse, let's be honest.
Any episode with Elijah is automatically an improvement; Gilles lends a gravity and flair to the show that it lacks anymore.
I'm tired of Elena. In every incarnation she's a whiner. Caroline, however, was excellent. But they do need a payoff on Klaroline or need to back away from it. I guess Matt was working double shifts at the Grill in order to get the $ for the property taxes on his new digs.
Beauty and the Beast Review: It's J.T.'s Fault!
3/29/2013 5:52 PM
I'm not thrilled with Tess. For a woman who has shown such exceedingly bad judgement (and sleeping with your married boss can only be described as such), you'd think she'd have more of an open mind on Kat's romance and trust her partner who's always had her back. That she didn't even hear Kat out and then ran off in this episode was disappointing, especially because in the previous episode she started to question whether the vigilante was as bad as the captain said. I get not every partner is as unwaveringly loyal as JT or as Hank from Grimm, but still Tess seemed like a bad friend and partner for at least not hearing Kat out.
And how dumb was Vincent jumping off that building. Yea I get that Evan had to be clued in that Vincent was still alive, but still. That was lazy writing and plotting.

Gotta love a man who tweets about dessert. I actually really love Wu and wish he were more active in the story.
The Big Bang Theory Review: A Real Dinner Party ... No Capes Required
3/15/2013 1:55 AM
I liked the more mature feel of the characters in this episode.
But I think they should let Raj throw more parties. I think his idea sounded like a lot of fun.
The ending was very sweet. And Sheldon has to make everything about him, so I wasn't surprised.
Beauty and the Beast Review: Feel Like Makin' Love
3/15/2013 1:21 AM
I hope Evan really gets who he's dealing with now. I doubt he does, but it's always nice to hope. It seems very sloppy of Kat to not keep much of an eye on what Evan is doing. She should know how deeply he feels about catching Vincent.
The discord between Tess and Kat irks me. Neither fully trusts each other and yet they were partners.
The Vampire Diaries Review: The Off Switch
3/15/2013 1:18 AM
I'm not enjoying turned off Elena because she's acting stupidly, almost with no sense of self-preservation. She's quite annoying...still. Damon is a jackass and an idiot.
I really enjoyed all the scenes with Stefan and Caroline together.
Pretty Little Liars Review: Pulling the Strings
3/12/2013 11:29 PM
I really hope Spencer is joining the A team to be a mole. Toby turned out to be a double agent for A. Time to turn the tables. I'm really hoping that Spencer was using her honest grief to drive her rage to convince Mona she was unstable enough to break and give in to Mona's offer. Otherwise this would be the second character we trusted to turn sides, and in such a short span of time. However, I will say that Troian Bellisario has continued to show her acting chops.
I'm glad Aria had the maturity to walk away, but I wish that she had told Ezra the truth. So I feel it was not a big win for her. At least she won't be lying to the principal anymore. But do I really believe that Ezria is over? No.
A was busy, and I think too busy to just have been Mona and mystery red coat. At least I hope so because then maybe Toby is still alive. Otherwise I want Keegan Allen to book a new show. Stat.
NCIS Round Table: "Prime Suspect"
3/11/2013 8:41 PM
I think given a desperate enough person, they'd be willing to do just about anything. If someone is willing to kill for $20 then why not for a whole lot more? Plus, as a reporter he knew he wouldn't be high on the suspect list because he was only tangentially connected.
Tony can be a bit of a clown but in this instance he was right about how they should dress and act in the Bahamas. And hazing the new guy is just so common in every profession. He's comedic relief.
If Ziva is off her game, can we really blame her? She did just lose her father, even if they had a complex relationship, she loved him very much.
Grimm Review: A Tentative Truce
3/9/2013 11:53 AM
@SMS - Renard is half hexenbiest and half Royal. His father (who was a Royal) had a hexenbiest mistress. When the mistress and Renard were discovered by the rest of the family, she brought Renard to the States. He is Wesen, but only half. That's why he doesn't fully look like Adalind or her mother when he transforms.
What I want to know more about - Renard and the resistance. They're in cahoots?
Grimm Review: A Tentative Truce
3/8/2013 11:53 PM
Finally Nick figures out who & what Renard is. I'm glad that they didn't drag out the reveal of the aspects of Renard over several episodes, but rather it all came out tonight. Or all that we know.
Wasn't it Monroe's reunion with Rosalee so adorable? Not Juliette.
I think Adalind's plans may be different than either brothers and I can't wait to see the ruckus she creates. But where is Nick's mum in all of this?
Lost Girl Review: Through the Threshold to the Temple
3/5/2013 6:57 PM
I agree that the Lauren-Bo relationship is only short term, much as it's been fun to watch. However, I can't imagine that Bo won't forgive Lauren. I wonder why Bo didn't bring up faux-Kenzi's lack of allergic reaction to peanuts. That at least would have made her seem less crazy.
My biggest complaint: now I want pie.....
Elementary Review: Intro to Deduction 101
2/22/2013 3:49 AM
I'm sorry, I loved the fact that it was a mad scientist who was poisoning people. Mad scientist! Depraved, yes.
I'm really enjoying this show. Sherlock seems to be a good boss, and he has a great mix of superiority and supportiveness in his attitude to Watson.
