Grimm Season 4 Episode 5 Review: Cry Luison

I agree it was a jam-packed episode and the Adalind stuff did make her look much weaker than she has been when she was he old wacko self. The episode showed clearly how much Nick needs to get his Grimness back and poor Josh - clearly the temporary solution is for him to come to Portland for at least some combat training. I don't think that death triggers Grimmness. Both Kelley and Marie got their powers around the same time and their father trained them. I would also like to see Meisner and Adalind team up and cause havoc in Austria. A meeting between Kelly and Elizabeth would be epic!
From brief scenes from next week it looks like Nick might actually go thru his Zombie phase during re-Grimmification.

I agree that this was the best episode in the series yet. The nice thing about being so old is that I sorta remember the Swamp Thing's Constantine and the beginning of the Hellblazer series but I dropped out of comicdom. This makes the show fresh in my mind - I don't "expect" certain characters to show up - I just enjoy the show anew and I really like that it has a flavor different than the other DC shows. I can't possibly add to Hank's totally comprehensive review but appreciate the effort.

Haven Season 5 Episode 11 Review: Reflections

That's the first thing I thought at the end of the episode. Did the writers change their meds? This much better. Mara and Duke are changing each other in very interesting ways for the better. I agree that Mara is much more palatable than previously. I also like that Doc (now a stealth member) still has the hots for Dwight, who continues to delight this season and ironic that he has the hots for Charlotte (or is he playing her?). Then there is the mystery of Charlotte WTF? Who is she working with - yet a new player(s)? Hope that Audrey and Nathan kick it up a few more notches because they are still relatively stagnant. I like that the aether is in the ether (so to speak) who will get the prize?

I like the show but where did this list of what pregnant women can't have it must be post 1980 because my mother had five health children in the 40's and 50's and she smoked and drank and never had dietary restrictions. Or is something just in the US?

Totally batshit denouement. Somehow from the first episode I had a creepy feeling about Wes - he felt somehow off (As if the rest of the crew weren't). And of course everything is still up in the air.

Parenthood Season 6 Episode 9 Review: Lean In

Yeah this was really disappointing. Looks more like a train wreck. Oh, Joel is weak because he walked away while Julia, who basically screwed around, has to find in her heart to forgive him? The worst victim of this episode was poor, loyal Drew - who should have a statue erected for putting up with the tides his grandparents have generated. I have to agree with Carissa that Kristina and Adam have overly indulged Max to the point that they have warped other students of their "Cathedral". Then there is Sarah and Hank (they have never worked for me as a couple). But I am glad that Mark is getting over Sarah (Lorelei) but he of course is not in the best place. Indeed what will happen to Amber - will Drew deliver the baby? Baby daddy ain't coming back Matt is so hot on Kingdom it would be hard to see him making a return.

Maybe the solution is for Liv and Luke to combine to absorb Kai's negative magic so both can be co-leaders. Plus Luke needs to get laid.

I think the DJ pushed himself onto the scene - he clearly has ulterior motives. My comment about Roy was only my disappointment that he is sort of in limbo and should have been somehow involved in the cartoon character. All in know about the Hong Kong characters is that the Ateia is a major character both then and in the future a major hero.

He hardly hired her 5 minutes ago and your Olicity fanacity is getting tedious.

Ray was only creepier because you are an Olicity shipper so nothing that happens on this show that doesn't promote Ollie banging Felicity will be enough for you. Carissa totally nailed the episode. Carrie Cutter was indeed a cartoon cutout. Ray will, indeed become the Atom or A.T.O.M. Sorry that Roy was left up in the air this episode after a great interaction with Oliver last week. So Thea is getting on with her life - this can't be good if Malcolm is monitoring her.
