IHOP - International House OF Psychos well,,,,, that went by fast - is that the end of the Lily arc? Even the feeble Feebs should be able to swoop in and sweep up Lily and the IHOP. And Joe is off and,,,,,,,,,,,,, going to do exactly what? I have no idea. go back to killing coeds? there will be a second spring season of 6-8 eps, and I have no idea what is coming up next. in summary - Spotty first story arc for the second season, but a Hella Finish last night

Almost Human Review: Hackers

the real sin was programming the smart house to KILL intruders - there are approved levels of force response for police/law enforcement to use, with each level of subject offensive force matched by a corresponding level of officer response. You don't shoot someone for giving you the finger, or climbing a wall.
see use of force continuum

Almost Human Review: Hackers

I thought the same thing - Like Blade Runner did.

The Following Review: Finding Joe

barely an improvement.
good drama, good shooting scenes in the warehouse,
pointless co-ed killing following an over-long scene of joe shaving with a straight razor,
cool emma touching the untouchable twin, cool that Max punches Giselle and drops her like a cheap suit, BUT that whole joe-covered-in-blood-turns-me-on sex scene With Lily was SOOOOOO PREDICTABLE AND POORLY EXECUTED. But I really was not sure if I was going to watch it or drop it, and now I will watch at least one more ep.

Elementary Review: Sherlock Finds Empathy

Just regular crazy - no mid-season suspense crazy - that's a good thing, this show doesn't need it
so he sniffs the dead man's mouth and tastes the door frame gunk, that's just regular crazy Sherlock.
the murderer is always the guest star, but this one was well-played with a cutout. so no one of the cast in cliff-hanger jeopardy, but Holmes takes on a personal challenge, and Det Bell takes on a professional one.
good episode, well-crafted as usual and the acting by all performers is Tops

The Mentalist Review: For the Love of Socks

So Agent Bitchella stops Jane from getting his hot dog from the street vendor, and he escapes from the crime scene so he can get another Dog? Now Patrick's got his game going again, and with a new FBI team to cock-womble. From here, y'all get an Amen from the choir.
I'm in.

The Mentalist Review: For the Love of Socks

he was trying to Man Up for his Hotty wifey with the Tats - and believe me, when you find a GOOD programmer, he can wear a dress to work and you will keep him - Quality Coding FTW.

The Mentalist Review: For the Love of Socks

So Agent Bitchella stops Jane from getting his hot dog from the street vendor, and he escapes from the crime scene so he can get another Dog? NYC street dogs are good, but not as good as here in Phoenix, with bacon, black beans and jalapenos. Now Patrick's got his A-game going. And he's got a new team to cock-womble. And it's the re-boot of The Mentalist. I'm so glad Cho is still on board; he just cracks me up when he tells her her that she'll never be able to rein Jane in and should probably just stop trying. And an Amen from the choir

Elementary Review: Regrettable Actions

really well-written ep; great set-up, excellent character development with Liz Marvel and the AA/NA connection, superb suspense both to know the setup and the outcome (very cool to start in the middle) and the ending!
Wow! IMHO Bell knows Sherlock needs to be edgy and did not want him off the hook for the shooting; but at the same time, knows that Sherlock can do things for the NYPD and for Det Bell's career that no one else can do. Clever boy,
as he keeps Sherlock on the hook, he achieves two goals - Assure that Sherlock stays with the NYPD, and makes Sherlock think more about the consequences of his actions. Bell jumped in front of the gunman just like a Secret Service Agent, protecting Sherlock without hesitation. Now he has put him on a light leash.
*applause* for the writers - again.

Castle Review: Ruggedly Handsome Dad

Kate in the Indian Princess costume was perfect!
great dialogue and all the actors seemed to really enjoy doing this one
