Scandal Review: The Walking Dead
5/10/2013 4:32 PM
So much awesome that I'm still recovering the morning after. I jokingly said about halfway through, 'what if billy chambers is still alive?' but I never would have expected it to actually be true! I also never expected David to be his accomplice. I think that was even more shocking to me than the reappearance of Billy. We have a lot of the major pieces, but I want to know how the whole thing fits together. I love the way this show reveals small bits at a time and ends up with one major divide that needs to be closed in order for it all to make sense. I've given up on trying to guess what's going to happen because it always blows my mind. I'm just waiting on the edge of my couch for them to tell me if/how David/Billy connects to Jake/Jake's Boss and how much planning went into this. They must have planned to pin that murder on David to get him an 'in' with Pope and Associates so it's been a long road to get here. insane!
Arrow Review: Unwanted Exposure
5/9/2013 7:44 PM
I'm not a big fan of the Oliver/Laurel romance. I just don't feel anything between them. It's not often that I don't root for the main couple (the only other exception being my support of Elena/Damon in TVD, but I still understand the Elena/Stefan relationship and can see the chemistry between the two)so I feel like it says something about the show that I don't feel or understand it here. I could chalk it up to my love of Felicity but I just don't understand the Oliver/Laurel connection at all and see no chemistry between them. I love the way Oliver and Felicity interact and I just don't see the same thing with Oliver and Laurel. Maybe they can embark on a relationship and get the feelings they have for each other out of their system? I doubt it, so I'll just quietly continue loving Felicity and ignoring Laurel...
The Good Wife Season 4 Finale Review: Personal Sabotage
4/29/2013 3:22 PM
I'm hoping that once she realizes Alicia's leaving, Kalinda will too. I wanted four things to happen this season: Alicia/Will, Diane/Kurt, Kalinda/Cary, and Alicia and Cary making their new firm. I guess 2 out of 4 isn't too bad... And maybe working at separate firms will bring Alicia and Will closer. At the very least, they can have hate sex!
Revenge Season 2 Finale: Who Will Die?
4/23/2013 9:09 PM
I love Nolan so I'm hoping for maybe Aiden... I hate that the show always puts a guy in front of us and basically tells us she loves him, so we have to like it. We never get to see relationships develop. Here's a twist, maybe it will be Nolan's Aunt Carol. She would technically be a true ally and it would surprise Emily. Though I guess she isn't really a core character. Maybe Takeda? I'd rather a fringe character still essential to Emily's journey (making them 'core' in a way...) such as Aiden or takeda died. Just not Nolan!
The Following Review: The Chase is On
4/23/2013 8:27 PM
I can't believe they killed Jacob. He was my favorite of the psychos. I found his struggle between wanting to fit in and knowing he was in over his head very compelling. I would have liked to have seen him continue on, perhaps making more decisions like the one to let Joey go, yet still be seen as remaining on the cult's side. It would have been cool to learn more about him and see a sort of traitor within the cult itself.
The part with Debra at the end completely blew me away. I can't even imagine getting buried alive. Hands down the worst way to die so I hope they get time to save her!
One irritating comment: what is with Claire? Why does she seem to think attacking a SERIAL KILLER at every given opportunity is a good idea? I don't understand why she stabbed him last episode in the first place (she WAS is a house full of psychos, stabbing their ring leader seems like a dumb idea...), but now it's like she doesn't even care about trying to get back to her son. I hope she doesn't die, though. I'm not sure if Ryan Hardy could survive that.
The Good Wife Review: Missing the Big Picture
4/22/2013 4:57 PM
I'm also really in love with the idea of Alicia leaving Lockhart/Gardner to go with Cary. It would make for some fun cases next year, though I don't know what would happen to all of the characters at Lockhart/Gardner... I'm sure they'd figure it out. I'd love to see Alicia and Kalinda go with Cary to the new firm.
The Good Wife Review: Missing the Big Picture
4/22/2013 4:50 PM
Given what we've seen of Alicia and her kids, I'm hoping we see her talk to them about this next week.
I'm also hoping she dumps Peter for Will but I sadly doubt that is going to happen... Though I could be pleasantly surprised there! I personally think she's only going for Peter now because of her feelings for Will. She's afraid to jump into anything with him, I just wish she wouldn't be :(
The Good Wife Review: Determination
4/16/2013 6:56 PM
I think next week we'll see the turning point in whether she decides to renew her vows to Peter. I, for one, am hoping she doesn't renew her vows, because I don't feel it would be honest of her at this point. She clearly has unresolved feelings for Will and she needs to either sort through them or let them play out before she can truly go back to Peter if she decides she wants that. I'd be lying if I said I'd support her going back to Peter, but I can see that as a potential option. While Alicia and Will do love each other, Peter is the family man. He's proven to be stable and, lately, loving. He clearly regrets his choices, but I don't think that makes up for them. Will isn't without flaws either, but I think trying a real relationship with him will give them the closure they need at the very least (hopefully more!)
Grey's Anatomy Review: In All Honesty
4/5/2013 5:32 PM
I don't think we've seen the last of Matthew yet. There has to be some love triangle action before he leaves.
As much as I would hate to see April get into anymore trouble (she's already been fired twice!) I have a feeling disciplinary action is inevitable... poor girl just wants to help.
Honestly, I'm bored with Meredith and Derek. Their storylines aren't interesting, though it is nice to have a strong, enduring couple on the show.
I feel terrible for Bailey, so I hope there's an explanation behind this that doesn't end up getting her fired.
The Mentalist Review: The Alien Lizard Vibe
3/25/2013 6:07 PM
I think Jane has been suspicious of Kirkland and Jason's convenient death only furthered that suspicion. I, too, was confused with Lisbon last night. I'm not too sure why she was so eager to trust Kirkland and hand over a lead to Red John when it has been proven time and time again that her teammates are really the only ones she should be trusting. Though maybe she's trying to distance Jane from it a bit, given that he allowed Lorelei to torture a man and then escape... Still, the way to control the Jane situation is probably not to give the only lead he has on Red John to a sketchy Homeland Security man... Just saying...
The Good Wife Review: Making Her Choice
3/25/2013 6:00 PM
I really love this new Alicia. The honesty is awesome. However, I don't think she was being completely honest with Grace in their conversation about Peter. She told her daughter she 'loves' him, but to me that isn't the same as being 'in love' with him. While I believe she does love him because they were married and he is the father of her children, I don't entirely buy that she is 'in love' with him. However, as Eli so thoughtfully reminded her, she is St. Alicia, and if she wants Peter to be successful, she has to stick by him. At least for now. I hope she doesn't make this a permanent thing, though. He took her for granted and, while he may not be quite so quick to do that again, he still betrayed her. Many times. Her time with Will does not make them 'even' and I think something will still happen there (at least I can hope!). Kalinda and Cary are a very strange story... I don't even know what to think about them right now. I'm just glad her damn husband is gone!
Deception Review: Revelation
1/22/2013 6:28 PM
I'm intrigued by this. I think Julian is too much of the obvious suspect at the moment. I'm thinking either the dad or step-mom did it.
Once Upon a Time Review: What Cannot Be Undone
1/17/2013 11:24 PM
I absolutely love the way Hook ended up getting his revenge. Living with someone you love who doesn't know who you are would honestly be way worse to me than having your true love die, or dying yourself. I applaud Hook for the moment he took full advantage of! (If I hated Hook I'd be raging at him, but I love him, so congrats to the pirate!)
Criminal Minds Review: Baby Did a Bad Bad Thing
1/17/2013 1:18 PM
I am so heartbroken for Reid, but this was definitely one of the best episodes of the season. I've gotten so used to Criminal Minds have mainly happy endings for the final victim that it was definitely both shocking and refreshing to have this one end in sadness, especially since it revolved around Reid. At first I thought Maeve survived when I saw Diane's body, but the ultimate murder-suicide (with the bullet going through both Diane AND Maeve's heads) took that fleeting hope away from me. I like the show doing personal episodes, because it gives the characters humanity and shows a life outside of their jobs. Overall, I really liked the ending, however unhappy it may be, because no good show always ends happily. Nice balance, I just wish it wasn't at the expense of Reid. Poor guy.
Deception Review: Who Killed Vivian Bowers?
1/8/2013 3:44 PM
I definitely think there's something here that's worth developing to see how it turns out. I liked the Costco steak thing as well. It gave an air of realism and also showed the difference between Joanna/Will and the Bowers. I doubt the Bowers have a Costco membership.
Gossip Girl Review: The Final Chapter
12/18/2012 4:49 PM
I'm not sure how I feel about Gossip Girl continuing in the younger kids. Overall, I'm just glad it's over. It started off as my favourite show, but it's steadily declined over the years to the point where I only watched out of habit. I'm glad it's done.
The Vampire Diaries Review: O Holy Fright
12/14/2012 1:59 PM
Also, this whole sire bond stuff is SO dumb. Damon making Elena stay away from him isn't making the feelings go away, it's just Stefan finding a way to once again make Damon do what would benefit him. Really all Damon's done is use the sire bond to Stefan's benefit. Elena's feelings are still there. He didn't fix anything. Stupid.
The Vampire Diaries Review: O Holy Fright
12/14/2012 1:57 PM
I found this episode to be much less exciting than the previous ones. There wasn't much shock value, except for a bit when Hayley revealed that the plan Tyler thought he was enacting was not happening at all. I still don't understand why it was necessary to do any of that (especially why Klaus had to kill the hybrids). I am, however, curious as to what Shane is up to that he needs 12 dead humans AND 12 dead hybrids. My guess is he wants to delve into some dark magic to wake Silas, though why this needs to happen is not really clear yet. Honestly, Shane and Jeremy are more interesting to me than any of the other characters, which is definitely a bad thing for TVD. But I guess we should be used to the good/bad roller coaster this show continually takes us on...
The Vampire Diaries Review: To Sire, With Love
12/7/2012 3:07 PM
I'm still not sure how I feel about this sire bond business. I'll reserve judgement until January.
As for Caroline, she was really getting on my nerves tonight, and she's my favourite female character! Let's not forget she has ALWAYS been against Damon, not just when Elena admitted to sleeping with him. She was against Damon in season 3 when he and Elena were getting closer, and had no problem expressing that point of view to Elena before anything had happened between the two of them. She was against Damon in this episode before she knew that Elena had acted on her feelings for Damon, which yes, does make her a hypocrite. She has been progressively getting closer to Klaus, but hasn't acted on anything yet, just like Elena and Damon were when she started her anti-Damon crusade. But we know Elena will do the same thing to her when the whole Klaus thing becomes apparent, so maybe she'll get a taste of her own medicine later on...
The Vampire Diaries Review: Yes, Sire
11/30/2012 1:17 PM
Also, just going to add that I hope they break this stupid sire bond and Elena still goes for Damon, just because it would make Caroline and Stefan look really stupid.

werewolf who came to town a couple of episodes ago than every other major character on the show since day 1, there's a problem.
The Vampire Diaries Review: Yes, Sire

This was the most ridiculous episode ever. This may have actually done it for my relationship with TVD... I honestly don't think I can watch this show anymore after it has somehow managed to ruin the one thing I have been looking forward to for the majority of the show. A sire bond is ridiculous and stupid, and such a cop out. Is it that far-fetched that Elena would pick Damon? It's ok, TVD, you don't need some supernatural explanation for this. She WAS making out with him as a human, too. There are actual feelings there.... Having her connect to him more as a vampire made sense, there was no need for this stupidity. It set her up to make the ultimate choice eventually: Vampire and Damon, or human and Stefan?
And honestly? Caroline is going to judge Elena for having feelings for Damon, when she's getting all chummy with KLAUS? This was pretty much the worst episode of TVD for me, and that's saying a lot. When you're more interested in the random werewolf who came to town a couple of episodes ago than you are every other major character on the show since day 1, there's a problem.
Emily Owens, M.D. Review: You Gotta Have Faith
11/28/2012 4:36 PM
This show just keeps getting better! I wasn't really anticipating this week's episode too much based off the preview from last week, but it definitely exceeded expectations! I really like Dr. Hamata's character, unfortunately she's a very large obstacle in the way of Micah and Emily, so she'll have to go at some point. I also thought it would have been interesting to see where the story would have gone had the evaluations not been switched, but i'm guessing it would have been just more angry Dr. Bandari, so maybe I'm not sorry we missed that.
I also liked how Emily started to take Micah's advice at the end. What she said to Tyra about being caught in an impossible situation was completely accurate, and I'm glad she recognized that. And the fact that Emily's honesty about her feelings for Will caused Cassandra to be rarely human just made it better. I hope Cassandra keeps these rare, tolerable moments, because they're making me able to stand her a bit more.
Emily Owens, M.D. Review: Guilty As Charged
11/22/2012 1:47 AM
I absolutely love this show, and this episode just built on that! I absolutely love Micah, and my only complaint would be that there wasn't enough of him. I sure hope we get to see more of his mother too! I love her, and I love her with Emily.
Cassandra was tolerable this week. I may yet come to deal with her existence.
Emily Owens, M.D. Review: Collateral Damage
11/14/2012 1:27 PM
I love this show. I felt the same way about Jerico and got burned when they cancelled it all those years ago, so I really hope that don't do that to this show. I absolutely love that it is so different from other medical dramas. I like the voice-overs from Emily, and I love that her character is one so focused on the patient interaction that the medical side almost seems to be a secondary consideration (almost!). It's refreshing to see the different take on the concept. I also am completely in love with Micah!
