The Big Bang Theory Review: "The 21-Second Excitation"

Totally prefer Bernadette to Amy, but they played well off each other. And Bern's kinda cute, in a surprising way.
The Big Bang Theory Review: "The Boyfriend Complexity"

I loved it, hopefully him and Leonard go on more fishing trips too. Or maybe he'll have more helpful hints for Leonard to get back together with Penny?
Smallville Review: "Abandoned"
11/18/2010 7:22 AM
Woah a bit vicious Wally, and terribly written.
First thoughts of Granny were how freaky she was! Loved how Clark had a sidekick this episode, and great use of ice breath. I thought for awhile that Tess would have been saving him not vice versa.
The way that Granny was talking about "the war that is coming" I imagined she was part of the Suicide Squad, not Darkseid's army, not that I'm complaining. Seeing how her girls can take down Clark without a lot of trouble I foresee some problems for him if it gets that far. Maybe that's why he has Superfriends to take them, while he goes after the end-of-the-video-game boss?
Family Guy Review: "Baby, You Knock Me Out"
11/18/2010 5:15 AM
Not a bad episode, but the main storyline was incredibly tame this week. It reminded me a lot of an episode where Lois starts to model, not sure why...
Survivor Review: Great Game, Terrible Cast
11/18/2010 4:56 AM
I took the meaning that Purple Kelly doesn't speak, myself.
I never thought about it that way, but I have to agree. There are no clear favourites this season, granted I watched last season with the all-stars and before that was season 2. So I don't have the best view of who has been a sure thing.
It seems everyone is constantly flip flopping on their alliances, to the point where it just seems stupid! What good does this do for Sash? Other than losing a vote from Brenda, he gains nothing. I could see some people like Marty (since blindsiding is a part of his "game") thinking that's a great strategic move, and he keeps someone that trusts him completely.
Chase just voted with the masses to keep himself safe next time, Kelly voted for a nonsense vote it seems.
Was it Nay and Fabio that came up with the plan to get rid of Brenda? I can't remember exactly, other then Holly ran with it and got most of the blame... Then Brenda decided that Nay betrayed her.
Did anyone else laugh that Jane decided now that Brenda was a villain? First only Marty was one, and Brenda and the younguns were her BFFs but now she's just off her meds.
Terriers Review: "Asunder"

Not much to review, other than to say it's another amazing episode from a spectacular first season of this new show.
The Simpsons Review: "Treehouse of Horror XXI"
11/17/2010 3:52 AM
I'm 24 male and married. And I've read and enjoyed the Twilight books. You make fun of the books for being bad literature, should I make fun of you for being a sheep since everyone makes the same sort of jokes?
A few laughs, but I'm not usually a big fan of the Halloween episodes.
Survivor Review: "Running the Camp"
11/17/2010 3:47 AM
After spending a week in Cancun, Mexico I don't mind admitting that I was a bit homesick to catch up on my shows. I do mind saying out loud that one was Survivor.
I really thought that Marty would have won the immunity idol, maybe because I think I'd have preferred him over Jane who also suffers from Sash/Brenda's smugness. Either way, I think next week Jane is going to need to hate or desire something/someone to drive her or she's going down the tubes quickly, after watching her fall apart in the physical challenge she does not have much gas left in the tank.
I think Fabio and Benry are a lot more put together then it seems, probably because they don't have the airtime that Sash and Brenda (eg.) have, but they made good use of it this time, mentioning how acting dumb is easy but not sure now without them having a strategist.
NaOnka stole socks, Holly threw out Dan's shoes, Alina helped eat food... what a bizarre season!!
*Wonder if the fire burnt the shelter for next week's preview?
Smallville Review: "Ambush"
11/6/2010 2:05 PM
I watched it and thought it was a good episode. Then after reading the review I agree with most notes. I didn't think of how this is the final season, and this episode was just that, filler.
It could've been a random general person getting targeted and Oliver/Clark team up to take down the mobile command station, same finale just not the 30 minutes to setup.
I think it's slightly moving more and more to the end, eventually there'll be a few big storyline episodes within 3 or 4 episodes, halfway. Assuming that it's a 24 episode season.
The Big Bang Theory Review: "The Apology Insufficiency"
11/5/2010 11:49 AM
Aha! I wondered if that was really him.
Terriers Review: "Pimp Daddy"
11/5/2010 4:40 AM
Interesting episode. Totally agree that they are better when the two partners are both fighting crime, or something together then apart. That being said, seeing the tranny-pro back to dressing like a man and his/her act, was really neat to watch. I wondered for a minute if a new character was thrown in somehow when he got off the bike with the fro, very indepth about that lifestyle.
I can understand why Jason was so upset when Hank brought it up, but Hank didn't really give him any time either to talk about it to Gretchen. Think this helped cement Hank's opinion that she shouldn't be with him, and was thinking of himself doing this.
Will something happen to bring Gretch and Jason back into the storyline now? I'm assuming Hank will stay away from the wedding, but it seems they've got a lot of story invested in the two of them, and too early to get rid of them.
Survivor Review: Chess Anyone?
11/4/2010 2:49 AM
Very neat idea for a review! I think they're mostly spot on, but I haven't seen much strategy from Benry yet. I'd change him and Marty around, because of Marty's charisma and his desire to 'play the game'. It seemed to be a big reason why Fabio wouldn't change his vote from Alina.
Interesting note : What if Shannon didn't have a breakdown, and his alliance had kicked off some of Brenda/Sash's?
Am I the only one getting tired of Jane's vendetta vs. Marty? Maybe I just don't get her animosity because Marty/Jill didn't like her, but that happens. But to keep that after 20 days seems a bit unreal.
It looked like he might have put the bug in the ear of Sash/Brenda though, about whether or not to bring her along to the final 3.
Terriers Review: "Agua Caliente"
11/3/2010 4:42 AM
Easily one of my top #5 new shows this season.
I can't wait to get my wife hooked on it, I'm thinking of starting her on "Ring-A-Ding" (where Katie hooks up with her prof.) because it's a good stand a lone episode, and it hopefully will make her feel interested in the characters enough to watch the earlier episodes.
I think the best comparison of the two BFFs would be Turk and JD from Scrubs. Totally different styles, but the way they work off each other is impeccable, and the lines just flow into perfect dialogue for a drama-action TV series.
Two and a Half Men Review: "The Crazy Bitch Gazette"
11/3/2010 2:21 AM
Makes me glad that I don't pay very much attention to celeb gossip, so I don't keep track of Charlie Sheen's antics.
Amusing though, knowing what he is known for in real life compared to what he portrays (very well) on a TV show... but he's paid how many million/episode?
Terriers Review: "Change Partners"

Thanks reviewer for mentioning how good of friends the two mains are, I can imagine but wouldn't have guessed so.
The Office Review: Darryl! MacGruber!
10/29/2010 8:24 AM
Honestly, I'm just really really thankful that Andy dressed up like Bill Compton and NOT a singer.
Enjoyed how they brought in almost everyone into the opening gag, not a fan of Stanley either so it was funny that they picked on him this sketch. And him dressing up at all for Halloween seems hilarious, but ridiculous. At least something more than Oscar's pretentious "consumer" (include the air quotes). Maybe he was going for that jerk role tonight, or that prize really pissed him off.
Speaking of great outfits, Angela came out of nowhere with the sexy nurse! I've seen her in the Loreal(?) commercials but it was very shocking to see cleavage from her. Meredith had the Sookie look down pat, but did she get a single line this episode? Would've liked have heard Andy's best "Sookie" impersonation on her. Creed had a very well done Mummy outfit, was a little unexpected that he had an costume at all.
My favourite was Michael's McGruber costume though, made me want to watch the movie again!
Here's hoping Timothy Olyphant can do something more next episode, and they move past the fact he dated Pam two or three times.
Big Love to Conclude After Fifth Season
10/29/2010 6:22 AM
I can understand why, nice to know that they're closing on their own terms. Hopefully the storylines have a nice arc, and finish to the rest of them.
Great actors in this, some I didn't realize who they were before (Jeanne Tripplehorn) and nice seeing Amanda Seyfried in some big name movies since acting in Big Love (Chloe, and the Notebook style one).
The Defenders Review: "Nevada v. Rodgers"
10/29/2010 4:10 AM
I think a good comparison of this show is to Scrubs, it has as you say the dramatic comedy down to a T.
One thing I did like about the Rudger's case was the fact they didn't rely on some last minute 'baseball player flinch' to defend their case.
Survivor Round Table: "What Goes Around, Comes Around"
10/29/2010 2:23 AM
Surprised to see Benry getting a lot of attention this episode, obviously it was how strategic he was being in the cannon ball down the tube challenge, even leading Alina(?) with what to do.
Good comparison though with him and Brenda, she's quite the schemer and everyone is still looking to her (and Sash) for who to vote/ally with, but Benry is leading his team through challenges.
Funny how the group keeps talking about the merge, but not caring as much about keeping the numbers to get there. Like, Dan's pitiful showing at the challenge today when if Yve was there I really think they'd have had it won earlier, or without the laughs at least. I guess it's easy to be the person telling them how stupid they're being from a couch, lack of food makes Survivors go something-something.

Maybe bring an edit function to comments also?
Wanted to note here, since I don't know where else that I still haven't recieved my prize from the last commenting frenzy. Not sure how long I should wait, but it's been almost 3 weeks now. Thanks for any help!

The Office Review: Olyphant-Riffic!

I loved Oly's story, but couldn't stand Andy's sing-a-long. I forgot what the actual storyline there was, surprisingly.
Survivor Round Table: "Worst Case Scenario"
10/22/2010 3:30 AM
What was with the preview for next week, Fabio using the pool as a toilet...
Hilarious episode, some extreme WTF moments for sure. Doesn't seem like it'll take a lot of work to confuse the La Fleur team though, and the Espada younger team are running around like a headless chicken, nobody is leading them. NaOnka, Chase, etc were just asking each other repeatly "who do you want to vote off?" and nobody could make a solid decision until the end.
Wondered if Holly would have given her necklace to Yve (awesome spelling) and so Dan would have to go, interesting anyway.
Solid thank you to Holly for getting NaOnka away from Kelly B, not sure I couldn't handled listening to her spouting off another episode.
Feel bad for Kelly B, very pretty girl after being on the island for 2(?) weeks, not everyone has that natural look after 1 day, nevermind however long she was there.
Dexter Review: Changing the Code
10/21/2010 9:50 AM
Hey DL, I still think the Internal Affairs guy is trying to get a BJ from Maria. Not to be crude/rude, but there hasn't been any T&A in this season so far and 'Dexter' normally has a least someone getting all nudey / season.
The Amazing Race Review: "We Should Have Brought Gloves and Butt Pads"
10/21/2010 9:48 AM
Really, you liked their ending song? My wife watched them get eliminated and leave, and remarked, "wow now I see why you can't stand them." Since earlier I complained about them, and how they sang to their cab driver to go faster.
Neat episode, Also I'd be afraid of yelling at my other half like that too so I could never ever take her on this gameshow... Brother or brother-in-law in a heartbeat.
