The Vampire Diaries Review: A Deadly MiStake?
3/31/2012 11:36 PM
I admit, I still like this show, but the writers really need to either kill off or otherwise get rid of the original vampires ALREADY!!! They are the real reason why this show has gone from completely unpredictable to predictable in each and ever scene. The writers can't come up with a new intriguing villain so they keep on coming up with more and more ridiculous excuses to keep the originals alive. Particularly Klaus, I'll bet anything that he's the one that Damon and Stefan come from, so they'll never kill him, that's probably why they put up the kill the originals kill all vampires of their bloodline plot point to begin with. It used to be unpredictable because they had a new villain EVERY. SINGLE. WEEK. but now that they're stuck with these guys we know everything they're going to do long before they ever do it.
House Review: Stand By Your Woman

4. House is the main character of the show, which like all fiction means that ultimately he will win out in everything, no exceptions. That also means that House will always get away with everything bad he does too.
5. The entire dynamic of the show follows the last 4, it always has and it always will, and that's how it should be, because that is why it is good.
6. Last and most important, HOUSE IS A TV SHOW!!! Everybody,
the reviewer quit expecting everything to be realistic. In fact, quit expecting
on this or any other show to be realistic and you'll have a much better time watching it.
House is as good now as it's ever been, and it's definitely a hell of a lot better than most other shows out there. I'm going to be sad to see it go.

@allie Nice to see a fan of House that understands this show, as opposed to the rest of the so called "fans" that don't understand House's character and the dynamic of the show yet call themselves fans.
Here's what you need to know if you want to understand House:
1. House will ALWAYS be a anti-social, manipulative, ass who never learns anything from his mistakes because:
2. House has NEVER made a real mistake on this show. Even Chase's stabbing was actually Chase's fault, not his or that of his methods regardless of what even he tried to make the viewers think.
3. House will always be miserable, nothing that can give him happiness will ever last, and even if it does it won't change that.

Person of Interest Review: The Life of Detective Carter
12/9/2011 9:28 PM
I've liked Carter well enough since the show started, and since then I've also expected Carter to join up with Reese and Finch eventually, since it's obvious that she has no real chance of catching them, or really any justification for doing so. So, I liked this episode, it seems to be the first episode that's really driving Carter towards the path I predict she will eventually end up, and it was definitely the episode that Carter really needed in order to become more than the woman several steps behind Reese. If the next episode preview is any indication, she's going to end up on the right side pretty soon.
House Review: Multiple Personalities

@Childish Gambino Actually, I think Cuddy did a much worse job of managing House than Foreman has been doing. With Cuddy, she'd argue with House for a while but eventually then let him have whatever he wanted anyway, while Foreman has gotten House to do more of what he wants in this one season than Cuddy has the entire series, which I'll admit that isn't hard to do. Foreman also doesn't waste time making any real effort to stop House's antics, because he already realizes that they pretty much always succeed despite this, which is another plus he has over Cuddy.
Besides, this show's title is House, he's always going to get his way regardless of who the Dean of Medicine is.
Person of Interest Review: Revenge, Best Served Cold War
11/19/2011 5:01 PM
@Tyler The machine only spits out social security numbers, it's the only thing the two protagonists can get their hands on, so they don't know who the people are until they look them up, don't know whether they're the victim or the perperator, and thus can't really know if one number has something to do with the other.
NCIS Review: Always Faithful
11/17/2011 10:40 PM
This is a great episode, as always, but I really think they dropped the ball with the rescue Flores part. Her rescue was easily the most anticlimatic thing to ever happen on NCIS. The tension of the first part just wasn't there, it felt more like they originally intended for it to be a single episode, but for whatever reason it ran long so they turned it into a two parter but they couldn't come up with a satisfying and tension filled way to rescue Flores that would last a whole episode so they just when with the standard talk down the hostage taker scene.
Surprisingly though, the stuff around the rescue was easily much better than the rescue itself, the interrogation scenes, the stop the insane bomber from killing a bunch of kids for no reason, Tony's greatest fear being kids, etc. If it weren't for those scenes I would have written this episode off as the first mediocre NCIS episode, but thankfully they did.
House Review: Control Over Damage
11/17/2011 2:11 AM
Yet another review this season from someone who doesn't understand this show and never liked it to begin with, that's the only possible explaination why anyone, not just Palmer, could hate this or any episode of House. This entire episode is classic House, and the delivery of it as good as ever. It's all here, a patient or their loved ones with a secret that if they told House he could have had the case solved in minutes, House needling his team about their personal problems based on whatever problems the patient of the week is having, a incredibly minor problem House is having and resorting to absurd methods to solve it, screwing with the administrator (I don't care what anyone says, Foreman is not only a great administrator, he does a better job of being one than Cuddy ever did) and so on.
What's best is they manage to follow the series formula and STILL BE UNPREDICTABLE. There's only one thing in this episode I saw coming, House going to the fight with Foreman, (I figured that out when Foreman says "I'd like to go to the fight too) otherwise pretty much everything took me by surprise, in a good way, and the fact that this show can still do that when I've seen every episode is saying a lot.
Family Guy Review: Back to the Beginning

@Joe This is a pretty common part of cartoons. If time passes at all it's very, very slowly, usually the next episode might as well have occurred on the same day as the last episode, it's called a "floating timeline"
The Vampire Diaries Review: When Humanity Happens...
11/11/2011 3:02 PM
You know, I was tired of Klaus long before he ever physically appeared, his plots and his action were far too predictable and too cliche evil mastermind for me by the time he possessed Alaric.
While he has redeemed himself somewhat during season 3 he's turning back into predictable for me. While I was genuinely surprised by everyone else's actions this episode, I knew practically every move Klaus was going to make during this entire episode.
Have someone, probably Tyler, disrupting and moving the dance? Check.
Show up there unexpectedly and at a very bad time to screw up whatever plan the Heroes have? Check. This one is a cliche the entire series has been milking to death, I admit I can't blame Klaus for this one.
Predict the Heroes are planning something probably before they even called to start it? Check, and another series staple.
Have hybrids that obey his every word as backup? Check.
Have the heroes' plan very nearly succeed and kill Klaus ridding us of him forever and thus leaving room for a new and much better villain to fill the gap, but someone conveniently shows up out of nowhere to save him so they can stay with the same boring old villain? Definitely check.
This one is a staple of Klaus specifically, no matter how little sense it makes (and it made no sense at the beginning already) the writers will make sure Klaus survives no matter what because they can't be bothered to come up with a better villain. At this point the whole "Klaus is an unkillable hybrid" thing doesn't hold any water whatsoever, they killed like what, a dozen hybrids in this episode alone? They could just rip Klaus' heart out, throw a wolfsbane grenade at him or just go with the old standby CHOPPING OFF HIS HEAD!!! Heck, they could have done any of those except the grenade his first appearance.
Don't get me wrong, I still love the Vampire Diaries as much as ever, but it's because of everybody except it's main villain. Before, VD was average in everything but the villains, they were it's strongest aspect, they used to jump from villain to villain on an almost by episode basis, and that was a good thing, it kept them from getting stale and predictable. However, now that everything else is great the villain has become it's weakest link, the one thing that prevents the Vampire Diaries from becoming perfect, and everything else about this episode was perfect except for Klaus.
House Review: Hilson, Take Snooze
10/11/2011 3:28 AM
Whoops. Accidentally pressed submit, wish there was an edit button continuing:
3. House is a TV show, this means that people are not going to act realistically in it unless the plot requires it. House is always going to get his way, anyone that tries to change House will never succeed, House's crazy plans will ultimately work out, etc. People need to stop expecting realism from House or any other show for that matter.
I could go on, but that's enough.
I will say one thing though, I hope that House is on for a long time, in fact if they could pull it off right I wouldn't mind if they pull a Doctor Who and have this show on in one form or another for ages. For those people that think House is worse, you're lying. You've either never watched it and are just slamming House because it's popular to do so, or are still watching it but decide to come to places like this and complain about how bad it's become. Hint: House hasn't become bad, you're just on the "it changed now it sucks" train, which is fan dumb. My advice would be to stop watching House if you hate it so much, the rest of us will enjoy this Golden show better without you.
House Review: Hilson, Take Snooze
10/11/2011 3:08 AM
I just don't understand why so many reviewers and commenters just seem to despise House, especially since the show is just as good now as it was when it started, if not better. Here's a few things that people that watch House just don't seem to get:
1. One of the central themes of House is that people don't really change, personality wise. They can fake it for a while or get a little better at hiding who they really are, but ultimately people don't change, which is true to life. By this theme House learning nothing in prison and becoming friends with Wilson again is only natural.
2. Let me make something perfectly clear, House is the main character of this show, as such he will always get his way eventually like just about all main characters do, which leads me to:
3. House is a TV show
Two and a Half Men Review: Nice to Meet You, Walden Schmidt
10/1/2011 6:56 AM
I don't get why they fired Charlie Sheen to begin with, he decided to to be an idiot and descend into drugs, alcohol, and womanizing (which BTW is why he worked out so well as Charlie Harper, he WASN'T acting) like EVERY other actor on the planet past and present worth mentioning has, so what? It's not like Sheen was unable to do the show or anything, and it was only a problem because of all the media that wouldn't SHUT UP about it and mind their own business like they always should.
Besides, they had no reason to kill off Charlie Harper at all. If they're dead set against bringing Sheen back, there has to be at least ONE actor out there that looks and sounds like Sheen enough to just step in and replace him without a hitch. Sure, it would take some getting used to, but contrary to popular belief, ACTORS ARE NOT IRREPLACEABLE, including for live entertainment, and if they tried hard enough they could have replaced Sheen, even if they did a crappy job it couldn't have possibly ended up worse than with this new guy.
The Vampire Diaries Review: The Nick of Time
10/1/2011 5:36 AM
An excellent episode, as always. I must admit that I didn't care much for Klaus ever since his introduction. I saw him as a cliched evil manipulative a$$ and I've been calling for the series to kill off since he finally appeared on screen. However, Klaus has been redeeming himself all of season 3, becoming deeper as a character, and along with everyone else getting more of a history, he's not that boring "I do bad things for no reason because I'm just evil! RAAAAGGGGHHHH!!!!" character anymore.
House Season Finale Review: A Cliffhanging Crash
10/1/2011 5:07 AM
I for one applauded when House drove his car through Cuddy's house, after how and for the amazingly petty reason that Cuddy broke up with House right after he SAVED HER LIFE I felt she definitely deserved it. As for the people complaining that House could have killed someone, he didn't, pure and simple. The way House just casually said "yeah, I'll feel better" and walked away after that made me laugh too.
