Glee Review: La Cuenta, Por Favor!!
2/8/2012 11:48 AM
This show is getting sillier by the episode. It's one thing for a show to be about fun and uplifting people, but it's a completely different thing to have to suspend disbelief completely in order to watch the show. Will being allowed to teach Spanish so long without knowing the difference between "muy" and "mas"...these sorts of things wouldn't happen in a real school, no matter how bad the state of education is in any public school district across the country.
I just wish Glee would treat its audience a little more intelligently. Kudos to Matt for being an honest reviewer each week, because it would be an absolute shame if Ryan Murphy & co. kept getting away with these horrible storylines.
Private Practice Review: This One's for Team Jaddison

Jake was SOOOOOOOO cute taking care of Addison! I've loved Addison since her GA days, and even though she has her flaws, she does a great job of taking care of other people...so it was nice to see someone take care of her for a change. No seriously...they're so cute. I need them to be a couple ASAP.
We should definitely rename the VAS the PAS. What a friggin hypocrite! Obviously I see it from a woman's point of view, but for Pete to have straight up slept with a complete stranger and moved on, only for him to ask Violet to stop seeing Scott? Unbelievable.

I don't know if normal kids their age would be THAT into MJ, but particularly with the revival of his music after his death, they could be just discovering its awesomeness. I liked the episode for the covers, which I didn't think were bad. I did appreciate that Sebastian became an actual villain, instead of just a romantic foil for Kurt and Blaine; sometimes a show needs someone to hate as much as it needs someone to love.
I will add this: I think the show works best when they're preparing for competition or in the competition. It was nice to hear that they were even thinking about Regionals, because week after week, I find myself forgetting that they're supposed to be facing off against other clubs to ultimately win Nationals. Like Matt said, if the numbers would stop being so concert-like, I probably wouldn't roll my eyes as much during the episodes.

This was a much better episode than I've grown accustomed to with the show, but obviously, the pressure is on for the writers to keep it interesting. Here's hoping Dan and Blair actually have something going on to close out season 5!

Also...I was disappointed that Alicia didn't tell her kids. I'm not saying she needs to be perfect, but now plenty of people know....there's no telling how/when that information gets out, and it won't be pretty for her when it does.

Loved the episode. It was conveniently wrapped up...I anticipated Will being indicted, honestly. WSC's questions regarding the Willicia affair were totally inappropriate. I think any competent attorney would know that that line of questioning might hurt their case, as Alicia's truthful answers might establish Will's questionable ethics, but had nothing to do with judicial bribery.
Also loved Cary sticking up for Alicia in a subtle way by confronting WSC during the hearing. Every episode, I wish he were a real person so I could marry him! Too much information? Oh well. Love me some Matt Czuchry!
Downton Abbey Review: Almost Normal

I think it's pretty clear that Matthew and Mary have mutual feelings for each other. This episode was actually one of my favorites of the second series, particularly because I loved Matthew and William returning, and Matthew singing the song with Mary. They have a lot of chemistry.
Granted, I've watched the entire second series and the Christmas special (I won't give away any spoilers), but I like the rivalry between Cora and Isobel and the tension that the MIA-storyline provided for a moment.

This was a pretty ridiculous episode. Completely agree with the review. Glee is so hit or miss these days, it's an absolute shame. Also, I thought the synchronized swimming proposal was super weird.

Pumped! Last season's episode, "Ham Sandwich" was quite excellent, so my expectations are high for this episode.

It's getting pretty silly. Susan going to visit Alejandro's family?! Absolutely ridiculous. I've gotten used to the craziness from DH but I hope it ends on a high note.

Good! This relationship is just creepy. I'm a viewer who probably doesn't fit the PLL demographic at the age of 23, but I still find the show very interesting. Last week I overhead a girl who was 12 tell her mom she needed to get home to watch this show. No matter how cute the couple is together, their circumstances are not cute, and I hope that the show doesn't send that message to younger girls who are going to be watching in the next few years.
Private Practice Review: When Love's Not Enough

I, too, was shocked by the lack of continuity from the last scene of the previous ep to where the show picked up this week. I felt like everything else flowed well except for that story. Regardless, I feel like all the actors have brought their absolute A game this season...hoping to see Addie and Jake together! They had such great chemistry at the end of last season!
Grey's Anatomy Review: Life Altering Moments

Great episode back! I have to admit...I was really underwhelmed by the scenes with Teddy alone with Henry, as well as with the resolution of Avery and Callie's patient. I LOVED Cristina imitating Kepner, and I love how Cristina pulled herself together in order to not break down in front of Teddy...but then, as soon as she got the chance, she did what she needed to do. Yang is the best character on the show. All Callie and Avery's case showed us was them screwing up again. Boring. It'll be interesting to see what other repercussions come from that surgery.
I knew Mer and Der would get Zola back, and once they started talking about a pizza being delivered, I knew it for sure. But even though it was the most predictable outcome, I loved seeing Meredith look so stunned/thrilled at Zola's arrival! Such an emotional episode all around!

Glee to Cover Rihanna, Maroon 5: Listen Now!
12/20/2011 9:01 AM
I think it's silly to expect Glee to only cover songs that the average 13-25 year old wouldn't know about. It's all about balance! Besides, Darren Criss can sing Katy Perry better than Katy Perry can...and if Glee takes that away from me, I'll stop watching.
The Good Wife Round Table: "What Went Wrong"

1. Favorite Scene: Alicia and Cary...because Alicia got mad, and Matt Czuchry is just friggin adorable.
2. Alicia/Diane: Good for them! I really think Alicia will benefit from having a professional female mentor in her life. Even if she ends up not taking the track the Diane took, it'll be nice to have someone there to guide her along.
3. Peter as SA: Yes. The Florricks are so great when they're threatening people.
4. Kalinda/Alicia: I give it 3 episodes.
5. Grade: B. I fell in love with this show because while it's not reality TV in the least, I felt that it accurately portrayed the gray areas in life, and just gave us a little bit of reality when it came to television dramas. For that reason, I'm not upset by the fact that sometimes the show has been a little sluggish. Sometimes life is a little sluggish. At least the show has terrific actors to portray the occasionally mundane realities of life.
Glee Review: Ho, No, No

I agreed last night that the episode was crap, and for a lot of the same reasons that people have sounded off about here. Glee is always inconsistent, and they usually follow up the high of one great episode with something not as entertaining or put together. The first two minutes of the episode were great, only to be followed by an additional 58 minutes of silliness.
This show is supposed to be fun, but that episode wasn't fun or funny in the least. I think they RM&Co. could've kept their mockery of old Christmas specials and given their fans some good stuff to talk about during the hiatus.

I've been waiting for this review to show up so I could wholeheartedly concur with it.
The Good Wife Review: Face-Branching Out
12/13/2011 9:32 AM
I won't rehash any of my previous comments regarding Will and Alicia, except to say that I didn't really like them together once they finally got together. It's possible for you to have great chemistry with someone, and have the best of friendships with someone, and have an amazing sense of respect for someone...but yet, not be in love with them. Been there, done that, it's not impossible. But I will say this: it seems that Alicia, as a person, is at a crossroads. For the first time in her adult life, she's no man's better half, her kids are growing up, and she's basically got no friends. I think it makes perfect sense that she's choosing to dig into her career, because she hasn't really done that before up until now.
I also think it's funny that so many times with television dramas, viewers always need the characters to fall in love with each other. One last thing, and no disrespect to all the Willicia fans, but I'm really glad that The Good Wife hasn't turned into a show where the ultimate focus is to get two characters together. I would instantly be bored.
