Glee Review: Home

Really enjoyed the episode. But, was a bit confused over Marley's nervousness. She kept crying that she didn't want to let anyone down and was feeling a lot of pressure. But, the girl didn't even solo! Tina had the bulk of the vocal work while Brittney carried the dancing solos. What was Marley wigging out about? Also, if Marley is throwing up that much, she should notice that her voice is being affected. You can't do that much trauma to your throat without your singing voice being negatively affected. For someone with singing ambitions, that is just stupid.

CSI Review: Six Degrees of Surprises

I always love these episodes of CSI - where the CSI teams investigate 2-3 separate crimes only to find they are all tied together. I guess what put this over the top was the sheer number of separate incidents that were connected, and how they were tied together. A hit man allergic to his plastic gun?!?! That was waaaay out of left field, yet somehow plausible. One correction: Bobby Reed came clean with the police because he knew he *wasn't* going to jail. He cut a deal to provide what evidence he could against the drug dealer and the associate that was arrested. What Bobby doesn't know though is that the case is still shaky against the dealer, who could be found innocent and order a hit on him again.

You would think that as the LOWEST-RATED network, NBC would strive to hold the viewers they have for their top shows. Instead, they make a bone-headed decision like this and shelve *both* GRIMM & REVOLUTION until March. Badly done, NBC. Badly done. I don't see CBS, CW or ABC doing this with their new shows (VEGAS, ARROW, etc.). Viewers are fickle and if you keep a show off the air for too long, they will easily find something because there are so MANY choices nowadays. Also, did NBC forget FRINGE is ending its run, too, in a few weeks? GRIMM could have easily added more viewers from FRINGE's following by picking up right after the holidays. And, yes, this press release makes NO sense because GRIMM airs in the hour *before* Rock Center is supposed to air. Why should Rock Center's new air date affect GRIMM at all?

Arrow Review: Hiding In Plain Sight

Excellent episode! @stepphie59 - While certain things about comic book characters can be altered for an ongoing tv series, there are some absolutes that cannot be changed. One of these is changing the names of characters and giving them different identities than what is portrayed in the comics. Laurel Lance is Black Canary and Helena Bertinelli is the Huntress. Switching them around would be like turning Clark Kent into Batman, and Bruce Wayne into Superman. You DON'T do that. Period. What can be done is change the nature of Laurel's and Helena's relationships with Oliver Queen.

Revolution Review: Choosing Family

While I did sympathize w/Monroe losing his only family in Miles, there is still a lot of the story we don't know. For me, that means that Monroe must have done something, or broken Miles' trust so deeply, that it's irreparable. We do know one important fact - Miles was stunned to learn Monroe kept her alive after all these years. Clearly, he expected her to be dead. I think it was their plan to kill Monroe, and he had to leave her behind. That would explain why she was pissed he never returned to get her out. BTW, no mention of Tom & Julia in the review? I know a lot happened. But, that was one chilling monologue he gave to Aaron. Now that the power is back on, will he still be in a position of power? Seems to me the techies, soldiers & engineers would have an advantage over him. I did love the big smile Charlie gave to Miles when she saw him escape. The girl hasn't looked that happy since the premiere episode.

Last Resort Review: Recalculating

@fortyseven - Did you forget that the COB is crawling around the jungle because he can't walk on the burned soles of his feet? He doesn't even know about the mole. Chaplin only confided in his XO, Kendall, about the loss of the key because he knew Kendall was innocent, not being on the sub at the time of the hallucination/theft incident.

Revolution Review: No Turning Back Now

Rachel was working with Aaron's pendant. Dr. Jaffe's pendant was probably turned over when Monroe forced the doctor's hand and threatened to kill his daughter. We didn't see that part. But, now the audience knows that Monroe has two pendants. From the map in the previous episode though, it's obvious that the others are scattered around the continent. Who knows what other territories are planning? Does anyone other than me see that Miles and Monroe have fabulous chemistry? I'm not a shipper, or even a slashy shipper for that matter. Just not my thing. But, the word "bromance" doesn't begin to describe what these two have going on. My, my...

Last Resort Review: Recalculating

WOW! That was an excellent episode! We finally saw what happened with the SEAL team back in Pakistan. Clearly peace between Pakistan & India is not wanted by the administration. But, why? Wouldn't it be good for everyone to have peace in that region, and for the administration to take credit for part of it? 4 episodes left? NO! Sam's Angels need to be reunited back in D.C. Grace needs to clear her name w/Marcus (and get James back in bed one more time). Looks like the Chinese will have a turn at the int'l standoff next week. This show could have been one of the most diverse, complex, layered ones on tv if ABC had allowed it to continue. Bringing in world issues might be too scary for a traditional network. Be brave, ABC! You're doing reimagined fairy tales. Why not be more patient & try a different time slot?

CSI Review: The Seattle Connection

I thoroughly enjoyed this episode and learning more about Finn's character. That said, I think Finn is completely unprofessional. Sara has also had her moments where she was frustrated with a suspect. But, to actually confront that person in their hotel room ALONE, taunt them - can she spell MISTRIAL? A new recruit would know how damaging to their case such actions would be. Having an experienced CSI do that was just plain STUPID. Also agree with Missa about Elisabeth Shue's acting. It's hard to reconcile that she was nominated for an Academy Award for LEAVING LAS VEGAS, and held her own with Nicholas Cage.

@William - I'm pretty sure all the acting scenes were shot in mountain areas right outside of L.A. I visit the Seattle area every year. The terrain & local vegetation is very different. In the scene where Finn & her ex drive up to look at the housing development, the winding road is definitely southern California with that dry desert brush in the background. The marina scenes could have been done in northern California, Lake Arrowhead or Mammoth Lake where pine trees are plentiful.
