American Idol Review: End of the Road
3/7/2013 6:21 AM
Last night's show was a disaster. The judges should be ashamed of some of the choices they put through to this stage. I am sure that this judging panel as we know it will not be back next year.
The only truly breakout star in this group is Angie Miller. I know that there are a few other people that can sing, but Angie is the real deal. Almost too good to be true that it makes me wonder why she is there in the first place.
American Idol, you have really sunk to a new low this season. Literally and figuratively. I wonder how the franchise will look after this season.
Simon Cowell is laughing his head off somewhere.

Interesting perspectives have been shared since my first post. I actually believe that the one by @Mrs alex o'loughlin could be a possibility.

I loved your review... But I can't say that about the episode. I really see why it is getting such poor reviews. This show is doomed to be cancelled if they do not clean up their act fast with better storyline. The acting talent is wasted with the direction they are taking.

Great recap... I agree with all of your choices....

This episode was good.... but really missed some great opportunities. I am glad that Juliet was able to open up to the counselor. This was a great scene at the end. I also see the writing on the wall with Teddy and Lamar's nasty battle for control to unfold. I think that Peggy will be the linchpin that will be used against Teddy by Lamar. I was also happy to see Rayna accept the responsibilities of parenting instead of just hiding behind traveling all the time. The Avery pity party has got to stop. Why are they making us feel sorry for Avery when he is such a jerk. I like his character as the jerk that you just love to hate. The writers are toying with us, by trying to make him seem worth rooting for. How can you after he was so hurtful to his girlfriend and bandmates. Looking forward to next week's episode.
Deception Review: Plan B
2/14/2013 2:45 PM
I really hope the writers wake up because they are at the edge of the cliff. This show has such potential and yet it veers off into directions that are unfathomable. Why on earth would they waste such good talent with this poor writing and dialogue.
The story is really good. Some of the actors are really strong. The writing and the dialogue is outlandish.
Who is in charge of this train wreck?
I see first hand how disjointed things are with how Joanna's character is a trained police officer, but keeps acting as though she does not have the skills of Nancy Drew. Come on people, what cop would go into an apartment like she did with the risk of danger and no back up, further no search warrant.
@Blu - I agree wholeheartedly about Meagan Good. I really like her as an actress, but she is not delivering the goods in this role. In one minute she is a strong cop and in another minute she is green. I want her to do well, but the writing is making it very hard for this to take place.
Somehow I think that Mia is going to be a breakout star. She has something special when she is onscreen. I hope that they put her more with Larroquette. He is the strongest actor on the show - It would be a nice twist if Mia ended up killing him. It would be poetic justice for all the seedy things that the Senator has done throughout his career.
Writers, Directors, Actors, Crew - PLEASE Get better - otherwise this show will have no other choice than to go off the cliff and be cancelled.
Arrow Review: The Choice
2/14/2013 2:29 PM
This was too much Island for my liking. It seems that the writers are determined to turn this into another show with so much lengthy island flashback. They are really risking losing a loyal audience with these moves.
Positives: I am glad to see Felicity become a member of the team. This and Diggles holding firmly to his principles that the Moira might be in deeper than Oliver expects.
Hopefully the writers will wake up and develop intense storylines instead of these extended island scenes. Our patience is wearing thin.
Revenge Review: 'Til Death Do Us Part
2/11/2013 8:49 PM
I see it clearly now... The Grayson's will frame Hellen;s death on Aiden. This will bring the initiative even closer to Emily's door.
This was a so/so episode in the sense that we thought there would be a death, but it was dragged out to the next episode.
I did not love the episode and saw all of its fatal flaws at once. I hope that the next episodes are better, because this one just left too many loose ends.
It is sad that Helen is dead. I guess that we shall see a new leader of the initiative. This twist could prove interesting.
I did not like the Nolan Padma storyline. It was not believable. It could have and should have been left out so that the explosion could have taken place. They waste a lot of filler and excess baggage in this show with scenes like the Nolan and Padma. I really like both characters. The scene was forced and was non-essential to the episode. Both characters are good, they should be used more strategically.
Downton Abbey Review: Strange Bedfellows
2/11/2013 8:40 PM
I caught the last hour of this episode. Enjoyed it immensely. I am happy that barrow is staying on... He is such a great nemesis...
I will Miss Matthew when he leaves. Matthew makes the show for me.
Edith is turning into a very interesting character. Her sister on the hand is annoying as ever. She used to be such a fun character. SO sad to see that marriage to Matthew sucked the life out of her.
Two and a Half Men Review: Meet the Parents
2/8/2013 10:00 PM
I did not love this episode. It was silly and made no sense.
The Miley Cyrus Storyline was more interesting. This episode was one of the weaker episodes in my opinion.

wow... she is growing up.
The Client List Season 2 Teaser: She's a Woman!
2/8/2013 9:55 PM
Loved the teaser..
I do hope they have better writing next season... Love to tune in, but never finish watching all the episodes.
If the teaser is any hint that they are coming back bolder and stronger, I am all for it.
My number one wish is to make Cybil Shepherd's role more interesting. She is so talented and can bring so much to the show, but they do not give her good dialogue or storyline.
Two thumbs up to Jennifer Love Hewitt and Randy Jackson for the song. It was strong and powerful....
American Idol Review: The Top 28 Guys Revealed!
2/8/2013 9:49 PM
I feel the same thing... However, it does not make sense to get hooked until the field is narrowed. It is so frustrating to start liking someone in the beginning only to find out they do not have what it takes to move on.
I must say that the most refreshing part of this show is not Mariah but Nikki. She is so authentic and genuine. I am SHOCKED that I feel this way about her, being that I had a negative perception in the beginning.
She gives HONEST constructive criticism. Simon would be proud of her and her Acerbic tongue with the contestants. She is not syrupy sweet yet she is also the most encouraging for those that need encouragement.
Time will tell if the ratings for the Live Shows live up to their predecessors.
Person of Interest Review: The Social Network
2/8/2013 9:43 PM
I really liked this episode. They took a different route and it took us to a nice place that I would not mind revisiting again.
I think that we may be seeing more of Logan in the future. They left the door wide open. I would not mind one bit.
The episode did make Carter and Fusco more back burner, but it was okay in the long run. The episode worked on so many levels.
The only thing that did not work were the flashbacks. They did not correlate the episode at hand. It did set up an interesting back story that can be developed.
Elementary Review: In Sherlock I Believe
2/8/2013 9:36 PM
Loved it, Loved It...
This was my favorite Elementary Episode ever...
I am so glad that they gave us a reprieve from the NYPD for most of the show. This allowed Sherlock to shine and to really showcase his talents.
It also gave us the oppty to enjoy more of Watson. I think that Lucy Liu is a great actor.
I do hope the writers do more of this type of episode in the future. They make the NYPD more palatable.
Beauty and the Beast Review: Don't Go Breaking My Heart

Great recap.... Looking fwd to seeing this episode on demand.
Arrow Review: Blindsided

Glad to see all the discussions about the last episode. This is a good sign.
Scandal Review: Power Corrupts
2/8/2013 9:27 PM
I must say that I was surprised by the twists and turns in this show last night. It took me by surprise. I think that the writers wanted to shake things up and they really succeeded.
It was nice to see Fitz grow a spine. I hope that Olivia can get over this puppy love crush on Fitz and be the dynamo that we all know and love.
I just really do not like how weak she is with Fitz. I am glad that this seems to be over and that Fitz is going to become a stronger person and be in a real relationship with his wife Millie. It was ironic that it took her so long to say that she loved him back. You would have expected that immediately, but there was definitely a long pregnant pause in her response.
I am glad that David and Abby are over. This really was not going anywhere. Glad it is done...
We shall see what happens with Cyrus... I loved his strength in this episode.
Glad to see that Olivia will be dating in the next episode. She should have some fun for a change. The Senator should become ruthless and have a vendetta against Olivia and find out why she can't commit. Who is the person that she is in love with. It would be interesting to see where it goes..
Christina Applegate Exits Up All Night

This definitely means the show is cancelled
Revenge Sneak Peeks: Helen vs. Victoria
2/7/2013 9:15 AM
Omg... This is intense... I can't wait to see this episode. I do hope that Victoria has something up her sleeve soon... It is unsettling seeing her so weak in this clip. Hope the writers have something juicy in store for us.
Criminal Minds Review: Psycho Shell Game
2/7/2013 9:06 AM
This was by far one of the best episodes of Criminal Minds. It was intelligent, mysterious and most importantly did not give away the ending at the beginning like the normally do in criminal minds.
I wonder why the shift in direction? What ever the reason, they should keep it up. You do not have to be so gory and sick and twisted in every episode. It is so much more palatable when you tell a story and allow the viewers to have some participation with their imagination.
Thomas Gibson did a fantastic job directing this episode. I hope that the writers get together more often and create great scripts for the viewers to enjoy.
The proof will be in the ratings I am sure as to whether or not this was a success.
Downton Abbey Review: Many Noses Will Be Out Of Joint
2/7/2013 8:59 AM
I like Downton Abby but this was not one of my favorite episodes. The story was all over the place. Hope they bring back what I love the most in future episodes.
Person of Interest Review: Prison Break
2/7/2013 8:57 AM
I enjoyed this episode. I really liked the characters they introduced. So sad that they will not be on future episodes. The prison yard scene with John and Elias was priceless.
Person of Interest is one of the best shows on tv, especially with the awesome cast and crew.
2/7/2013 8:54 AM
This seems like a great episode.
Nashville Review: This Is Me
2/7/2013 8:53 AM
Great episode last night. Glad to see Teddy ask for the divorce. He knows that his marriage is over and further he cheated on Rayna.
I also like the direction that they are taking Juliette and Deacon's relationship. Friendship and trust. I think that she needs a friend that she can trust. This is a good thing that she has deacon.
I hate to say it, but I think that Rayna is going to be lead down a dark path with Liam. He is shady and bad news....
I also liked the fact that AVery told his agent that it would only be professional from now on... He may have some flaws but that is one thing that he should have done a long time ago. However, I am sure that there will be consequences to his actions.
