I was SUPER impressed with McLaughlan's performance during the scene with he is telling Skye about her history and her mother. You nailed it on the head, what could have come across campy and over-acted, came out amazingly touching and tearful. It seems like Cal reached his daughter just a little, as the first thing she yelled when seeing him fighting Coulson was "dad". Maybe it was just to get his attention, but I suspect not. I'm sad that we lost Tripp, but honestly, he had become a bit of a one trick pony, with being the one with access to Howling Commando's stuff. Don't get me wrong, I liked Tripp, but they never developed the relationship with Simmons that was showing last year and he wasn't focused on much until tonight. But by far my favorite scene was the Terrigenesis scene. Soooo well done, and it you watch Skye, you get a glimpse of her powers as Quake (http://www.comicvine.com/quake... as she creates a sonic wave to blow out the Terrigan coccoon away from her.

Were there anymore episodes of Perception left, or was it done for season 3?

I agree that Madam Secretary is very well done, I'm glad it's getting a full season. I really like Scorpion's decision to have a little "human" element at the end of the episode after the case is solved. So many shows want to run the case up to the 1hr mark, it's nice to see a show take 2-4 mins and remind us the characters are human and have feelings and lives. Finally, I have to say, NCIS NOLA is all about the chemistry between Brody and LaSalle, with a dash of "Papa Pride" thrown in for flavor.

I agree with you Sean, I think Tom is behind that door too. As to Red's conversation with the cult leader at the end.. I wonder if that is written out or if they just let Spader ad-lib the entire thing. It seems to be another "of the week" thing where he does it every week, but I still love it..

Thank you for the correction.. You are right, she is still only engaged to Wladimir Klitschko

Marry Me Season 1 Episode 1 Review: Pilot

I agree with your review completely, but I want to add my only other issue. I don't need to be beat over the head with a joke to find it funny. Actually it works just the opposite, repeatedly slapping me with the SAME joke over and over doesn't make me find it funnier, just annoying. For me, it seemed like many (most?) of the scenes went on, and on, and on, repeating the same joke and smothering (or ruining) any humor that it might have created initially. Here are two prime examples: 1. Yoga Class: The instructor finding _any_ complement for Annie was humorous, her pointing out that he should just say she was bad a yoga and not fish for a complement, was a good punch line. Having him do it one more time would have been ok (but not really needed). Sadly, the writers decided to have him do it THREE more times (including one time after class). By the time he mentioned her mopping up her own sweat, I was so done with joke I actually groaned. 2. Discussing "The Signs": Again, the scene started out really cute and funny, they were at the same place, which was the place they met, and they agreed that the hiccups were not signs they should break up. sign. Then they went into the "you complete me" romantic portion, and then came BACK around to how the fist sign should go away and say "hello" to the new sign... Again, I groaned. I honestly think that this show has some great potential as there were a few really good comedic part that were done very well, like the tirade/fight at the beginning, or Annie face-planting into the wall. So if they can harness that, and use it, it might just be a hit!

Well given that Hayden Panettiere (Juliet) just had a baby with her husband and was pregnant during the filming of Nashville, I'm going to guess that they've decided to work it to the show. How much they will work it in remains to be seen. On the Luke front, I can understand him being annoyed at Rayna's wishy-washing stance on the date, it's frustrating when someone commits and then keeps trying to change the plan. At least he apologized by the end and they have a new plan going forward. Avery is my underdog favorite. I hated him during the first season when he sold out his band, ditched Scarlet and basically became a self-obsessed jerk. When he finally took control of his life and decided not to be that guy anymore I cheered... I really hope he can find his way back out of the bleak-black-hole he's climbed into.

I agree that the show is struggling a little. Seems like all three episodes have had the same basic discussion between Jim Gordon and -- well, EVERY other cop. "I believe in the law" to which Harvey (and everyone else) laughs and said "Oh you will learn, dumb rookie". It would be nice if they would introduce at least ONE other honest cop... oye!
