Two and a Half Men Review: "The Immortal Mr. Billy Joel"
10/21/2010 2:45 AM
Yup, and singing his songs the way only Alan can... Or like almost everyone that sings along in their cars. Half mumbling the words when you forget, sounds like gibberish and then continuing on!
Parenthood Review: "Orange Alert"
10/21/2010 2:30 AM
Man I had no idea what Kristina was... I thought a cloud haha. It's interesting how all the characters are easy to relate to, depending on who the viewer is. I'm a newly married man so I find myself relating to Crosby and Adam mostly, but I see my grandpa as the crotchety old Zeek also!
I think I saw it here before, comparing Lauren Graham's role in this to her leading role in Gilmore Girls, in there she was the cool mom compared to the awkward at dating bartending mom here.
The Defenders Review: "Nevada v. Carter"
10/16/2010 12:57 PM
It kind of makes sense that a career driven lawyer (Meredith) thinks only of the conviction rate for her case, in Vegas where I'd assume there's a lot of high profile cases there's quite a bit of pressure to perform well, or get out. Maybe she did go overboard on this case.
Smallville 200th Episode Review: "Homecoming"
10/16/2010 11:34 AM
Without a doubt, as a Smallville fan for years this episode is one of my favourite of all time.
I can't see anything wrong with this episode, really loved how they explained Brainiac 5.0 because how else is Clark honestly supposed to show hesitation after he killed him?
- Do you think Clark or Lois sent the text message to the Torch members from Chloe? Or is she lurking in the shadows?
- I know the first song that played was Lifehouse - Everything, awesome since it was the same song as Smallville High's prom years ago. But what was the second song?
- Even though there was no conflict, everything fit together brilliantly.
- Was it just me or was Oliver wanting his 'leader' Clark, proud of him by coming out? Or just wanted a friend to support him? Either way, Clark has brought up how Oliver murdered Lex (earlier this season/last?) and effected his judgement since that happened.
I think you're correct, we all want that power to be able to protect our family & friends and it's a dream to have those powers but we still do what we can, with what we have.
Loved Ollie's line about "armchair bloggers have become critics of everyone else in this country, and I'm out there becoming a leader and a hero." (Semi-accurate)
Great review, great episode.
Survivor Round Table: "Turf Wars"

Something worth noting too : We finally had two challenges again! One for reward, one for immunity.
Chuck Round Table: "Chuck Versus the Coup D'Etat"
10/13/2010 7:50 AM
This was another classic Chuck episode, and they have this way of writing certain things into their storylines that make perfect sense, but could be considered as ridiculous in almost any other spy (I use the term loosely) TV show.
- With Chuck's history of Subway, I don't think anything else would have fit.
They brought back the General instead of trying something lame like Charah (get it?) winning a trip to some 3rd world country, and explaining that to Sis & Awesome. And it brought them into the story with some clever baby and statue usage...
Chuck didn't flat out tell her that he's back in the CIA though, did he? Or is that assumed?
Dexter Review: "Practically Perfect"
10/11/2010 8:24 PM
The way they're portraying the nanny so far, is a bit over the top as a bad person. Interesting how a show about a serial killer, we keep wondering something bad about new characters. I'm leaning more towards she either suffered, or will suffer a big tragedy. Maybe Dexter does something to help her through it? murder an abusive ex-husband after listening to her cry?
I'm somewhat interested in Angel/Maria's storyline, interesting fact is they both acted in the HBO prison show Oz. But I don't think they had very many if at all scenes together.
Smallville Review: "Supergirl"
10/9/2010 2:59 PM
Ouch from House!
I enjoyed this episode, surprised you didn't say much about Ollie coming out of the closet, wonder how he'll react to the backlash that's sure to happen with all the foreshadowing being done in this episode.
My thoughts of the future of the darkness : It'll find Lex's clone, Alexander, and take it over.
Might just be because I want them to do something big with the cloning storyline, and the fact that I still feel Lex Luthor is Clark's greatest opponent.
Solid episode though, seemed there was a lot of comparisons between Clark's lack of faith in Jor-El/Kara and Lois' in Clark.
The Office Review: "Andy's Play"
10/8/2010 5:40 PM
Cheers! Nice to have someone writing a honest review about this show, frustrating to read IGN's feature about how "dumb Erin is".
Parenthood Review: "I'm Cooler Than You Think"
10/7/2010 3:05 AM
It took me a bit to realize but Ms. Graham's new beau is Jesus from True Blood, Mike.
The family I'm really interested in has to be Joel's. He has such a manly career but gets forced to be the stay-at-home dad. Neat seeing him with more screen time lately and with more roles than just being the parent, like helping pops fix the roof and building the desk for Lauren Graham. Interesting!
Watched and loved Peter Kraus (Adam) in 6 Feet Under so I see why he has such complicated (acting) lives, and roles he brings the strong patriarch of his family that you would think he learned from his father as a young man.
Dexter Review: "Hello Bandit"
10/6/2010 6:20 AM
I agree with the other commenters, this episode is setting up for bigger storylines. They had to do something to move some parts ahead, and finish with others. It wouldn't fit to have Dexter rushing around being a soccer dad right now. Maybe next week something actually happens with Dex/Quinn. Remember he's got some info about him being a dirty cop btw, maybe Quinn shows the Trinity's family a picture of Dexter? Don't know if he'd go anywhere with it, or investigate it himself again.
Maybe Deb finds out something he's left laying around the apartment now they're sleeping together.
The Amazing Race Review: "A Kiss Saves The Day"
10/6/2010 3:38 AM
Totally agree with the forced tension between the teams. I was half paying attention to it though, so I'll admit to believing it.
A few other notes I thought:
- The newly dating couple sure had a turnaround, not fighting and the guy seemed to be nice to her!
- I would've thought the market selling should have been more bartering, not automatically going for the lowest price. Seemed most teams did that, and then were bartered lowered than 3 cenari(?).
Didn't want that team to go, but hoping for the best for the pair.
How I Met Your Mother Review: "Unfinished"
10/6/2010 3:32 AM
Maybe I missed it, but where's the Warriors in Pink coming from? No link?
Two and a Half Men Review: "A Pudding-Filled Cactus"
10/6/2010 3:30 AM
Hmm, I thought the predictable ending for this episode would be he gets back together with young blondie and he moves back into Charlie's house. Not much of a "two and a half men" if 1.5 don't live in the same house as the other.
Family Guy Review: "Excellence in Broadcasting"
10/5/2010 1:23 PM
Maybe it's different for me, being a Canadian, but I had no interest in the storyline, and there's a few jokes I didn't get. Had two women over watching also that didn't get them & tried to explain some of the jokes haha.

Survivor Review: Life After Jimmy Johnson
9/30/2010 7:19 PM
Maybe I didn't notice it in the earlier episodes, but they've renamed Jud as "Fabio" when he gives an interview now.
Just found it funny. And NaOnka is so mental, I really hope her allies turn on her and realize just how much crazy they've got on their team. I think once either she screws up, and someone calls her on it or she doesn't like what someone else does then she'll unleash her hood on the others.

Incredible guest starring on this show, funny how just a few seasons ago it was almost canceled. Hopefully the guest stars help keep ratings up for this show!

I'm a fan of Stronger also, different to have Artie sing it but no problem with it either.

Hoping for more action, started to doze off at the end of the pilot when I finished watching it.
