Dexter Review: Driving Solo
12/4/2012 4:09 AM
I see that no one noticed the shout out slash dig at the Bobby Singer character from Supernatural. The actor Jim Beaver who played Hannah's father also played the character Bobby Singer on Supernatural. The arsonist writing Bobby on the walls and Dexter going "Nobody calls an adult Bobby". Lol! Hilarious.
Homeland Review: Confession of a Teenage Drama Queen
11/13/2012 12:50 AM
I dislike the VP more than I could ever dislike Brody. I know that Brody intended to blow up the VP and others but Carey said it best when she told Brody that an evil man Abu Nazir tortured Brody until there was nothing left but pain and then gave him something to love (Aisa), and then another evil man (the VP) took that away. Brody is not like other terrorists who chose to kill innocent people, he was broken. Most people, if not all, would break too given eight years of torture. It is not a rational thing. He simply needed to be broken again and put back together again, which is what Carey did. It's a pity that they had to stop Dana from reporting the hit and run because it would have torpedoed the VP. He would never become President if it comes to light. Mostly this episode showed exactly what type of man the VP is. Innocent American mother or innocent Arab children, this man does not care. Love this show.
Person of Interest Review: Breaking Good

I just loved when Finch referred to Riley as "bad code". It just shows the writers are on top of their game. It is not easy to get over something like what happened to Finch. Even if you don't agree with the opinions of someone that abused you as Root did to Finch, you still find yourself repeating their words. Thankfully, he had the presence of mind to realise this and retract his words.

@Dadesh64. The Real HR boss is actually the campaign manager of the guy who was running against the guy who was arrested for being the HR boss. Lol! It's just one of those episodes, isn't it?
Haven Review: Death Becomes Her
11/10/2012 11:53 PM
Great episode. It was so frustrating when they didn't know that Tommy was the boltgun killer. Thankfully Audrey found the evil sister and with her the truth. The house on the island that the Teague brother saw at the end was obviously the "barn". I guess it's reappearing to take Audrey away, wipe her memory, keep her in suspended animation for decades and then spit her back out again. Question: When Audrey leaves, does the trouble leave as well? The boltgun killer is probably still alive. I wonder if he will still be in the Tommy body when we see him again. He is probably at least as old as Sarah, maybe more. He knows a lot about Haven's secrets for a young guy. I just hope he is not the Colorado kid's father. That will probably be Duke or Nathan during their time travel. On a side note, I can't believe the evil sister is being allowed to start a new life. Didn't she kill some people and fail to bring one of them back. I don't know if saving Nathan wipes the slate clean. Oh well.
Elementary Review: Drug Smuggling and Plane Sabotaging
11/9/2012 9:19 PM
Clever, clever episode. So many twists and turns and none of it felt forced. The joke Sherlock played on Watson was hilarious. I'll admit that when I first saw the actor, I thought he could not possibly be Sherlock's father but was happy to be proven wrong, and then proven wrong again, or was that proven right. Lol. The final scene made the episode. The mention of Irene sent shivers down my spine. This is THE woman. Ostensibly the one that sent Sherlock into a tailspin of drugs.
Person of Interest Review: Taking Root
11/9/2012 8:07 PM
Another great episode and review. However, lol at the reviewer asking why Root thinks everyone is bad code. They just spent an hour telling you why. At an impressionable age, she saw an upstanding member of society kidnap (and ultimately murder) her friend. The police too lazy to run down the licence plate she sent them. The desperate librarian was more interested in finally getting a man, any man, even a child molester than in the truth. With all that plus her lack of family connections, her fearsome intelligence, and her obvious sociopathy, it is no wonder she thinks of humanity as bad code. She also grew up at the dawn of the information age, so the "bad code" tag is probably one that appeals to a loner who only had her codes for company after her only friend was murdered and she had to see the person responsible go on with their life like nothing happened.
Scandal Review: A Worn Path
11/9/2012 5:44 PM
Very good episode, I was engaged throughout. The voter fraud plot was a reasonable explanation for the conspiracy. The issue is who did what, when and how. But Abby, oh Abby! Some people, once they start dating completely lose their mind. Doesn't she even have a sense of self preservation. She must have violated her employment contract. I think her betrayal is symptomatic of the resentment she has had towards Olivia for a long time. She must have gotten tired of being grateful, and now wants to take her saviour down. Frankly she has no legitimate grudge. Olivia does not owe her a play by play. She works for Olivia, her job is to do what Olivia tells her to do. If she doesn't like it, she can go and start her own firm. Silly woman. Now David is in danger again. Cyrus and Mellie, Cyrus and his husband, Cyrus and anyone, TV gold!
Person of Interest Season Premiere Review: Finding Finch
11/9/2012 2:58 PM
Okay, this episode rocked. It's fascinating how the writers have between the pilot and now, added depth to all the characters including the machine. Because that is what they did, the machine is now a character that has grown and has the potential to grow more. I don't think I have ever been more excited at the prospect of where a story could go. Everyone killed with their performances. Special mention to Amy Acker who always manages to become every character she plays. I believed her when she was the psychiatrist in danger, and she transitioned easily to the genius sociopath. Great review, by the way, and I agree it was best they did not wrap up the Finch kidnap in one episode. They took the opportunity it presented and ran with it. Applause all round.

@Forty Seven. Lol. Thanks for that. You gave me good laugh. Still chuckling. I feel exactly the same way. At this point , I am just hoping for a reset in the end. It's all crazy but I'll admit I'm intrigued.
Haven Review: Blindsided
11/3/2012 3:15 PM
@Mimi880. Agree completely about Duke. His character is great. Please, please, please don't criticise Duke's hair. The minute you do, they'll cut it off. I love his hair, I love that it is long. I don't know why people just hate long hair on men. They already cut off Nolan's hair on revenge because of all the people complaining about it. And yes, I know I just wrote a post on a man's hair but I have to beg on behalf of Duke's hair. Oh... and the episode was great. Both the reveal that the Colorado kid was Sarah's son and that Tommy is the bolt gun killer. I agree with @General Rapunzel, I think Tommy is a shape-shifter. Knowing this show, they still might find a way to surprise us again.
Grimm Review: G is for Grimm
11/3/2012 10:23 AM
i honestly do not think that it is possible for anyone to have chemistry with Juliette. She is just so wooden. In the beginning I actually thought she was a part of the Wessen world because of her frozen expressions. I couldn't watch the coffee house scene. It was incredibly humiliating, I was squirming throughout. The whole thing was almost redeemed when she remembered the hospital kiss. Hopefully, it will move the plot forward. Still love the show, but the awkwardness is killing me especially since I know Renard and Juliette are not going to end up together. The writers wouldn't dare, it would make Juliette too unsympathetic. Renard IS Nick's boss. AWKWARD!
Fringe Review: Bishops, Blondes and Bullets

@Wayne. Totally agree. That's how I see it going down. Please, let it go down like that. They all deserve so much better. I think Peter and Oliver should get to see their daughter grow from toddler to adult. The crappy world Etta grew up in wiped from existence. The End.
Scandal Review: Conspiracy Theory
10/26/2012 4:40 PM
I actually disagree with those that call the President weak because his people can talk to him. We are talking about his wife and his mistress. Those people can talk to you anyway they please. You are not THE PRESIDENT when you are with them, you are the guy they had a soggy sandwich with on the day you met. Only a narcissist would expect those people to treat him like THE PRESIDENT. This President is clearly not that. Besides the minute people like Cyrus can no longer speak frankly to him, there'll be no one to tell him the emperor has no clothes when he needs it. It is not weakness when you are soft around people you care about especially if you are so much more powerful than they are. He has no need to prove he is powerful. He is THE power.

Then again, maybe Victor is Isaac's son and they hid the relationship in order to present no weaknesses to their enemies. Either way, it's very personal.
Once Upon a Time Review: Magic Is My Crutch
10/22/2012 11:43 AM
@kansasGuest. I agree that Mila was also a coward. But if Rumple did not die for his cowardice, why would he kill her for hers. I guess we hate the most in others what we despise in ourselves. She was desperately unhappy and wanted to escape the judgement of the villagers, but Rumple refused to leave and start over. She did wrong, they both did. At the end of the day, however despicable it is, people have the right to leave. I did think it unfair that Hook asked a cripple to fight him. Like I said, I was on Rumple's side until he killed Bae's mother. She did not get a chance to redeem herself like Rumple is now getting after all the horrible things he did.

Thank you @Jlo. You just saved me a lengthy post as I agree with everything you said about Mila. As to why Rumple destroyed the world? For the same reason he killed his wife... Me, Me, Me! I was on the Dark One's side up until he killed Mila, now I'm rooting for Hook. Lol. I just hope Belle doesn't get caught in the crossfire. She's like a mob wife.
Dexter Review: Being Human
10/22/2012 10:58 AM
I agree with . The picture was hidden. I immediately thought lover too. The reviewer is right, Speltzer was tailor made for getting Deb on board. He could not be more evil if he tried. I guess that is why Dexter chose him. He was an easy sell. I think the revelation that Victor wasn't just another employee to Isaac has just given the whole mob mess a needed edge. It's now personal and people have to die for it to end. Quinn is just a disaster, I can't believe his partner supports his decision to date someone that is a part of their investigation into the murder of one of their own. Hopefully, it will end up being worthwhile in terms of information.
Scandal Review: Tick Tock
10/19/2012 4:30 AM
This week's episode was just amazing. It was fascinating watching the President of the USA throwing a jealous fit in the woods and throwing all caution to the wind right in front of his security detail. I can't believe the security man blinked when the President's wife was questioning him. That was rather unprofessional even though at this point I am starting to feel sympathy for Mellie. Even if she went into it with her eyes open, it cannot be easy going through pregnancy without any warmth from your husband. The conclusion was strange though. Even if Archie was a traitor, the government is still spying on private citizens. I guess without a client, that is no longer Olivia's problem. On a side note, the President doesn't mind being spied on by Cyrus? WOW.
Fringe Review: What Makes A Hero?

The episode was okay. Nice scenes with Olivia and Peter.It was also strange because I think the weird skin people are actually the ancestors of the observers. Perhaps the weird skin disease will ultimately result in their descendants becoming pale and hairless, and having mental superpowers.
Major Crimes Review: He's Back And Annoying As Hell

... He may be annoying but Taylor saved lives this episode. The reviewer obviously allowed dislike of Taylor to colour their interpretation of the plot.
Major Crimes Review: He's Back And Annoying As Hell
9/20/2012 2:36 AM
This was a very good episode. I didn't like the first few episodes as much as the last 2-3. I think it's found its feet now. I do have to disagree with the reviewer about Taylor. Though annoying, he did not make the murder a major crime because his son went to the school. He made it a major crime because it is an area with a lot of gang activity and it looked like a gang hit. Gang hits lead to retaliation and then it spirals out of control. Before you know you have dead bodies in the double digits.
In addition he was right about the notification. If major crimes had done what they would usually do, which is notify the family and question them and then let them go, the dead boy's brother would have retaliated against the latino gangs. Result? Dead bodies. Captain Taylor was aware of the situation, both because his son goes to that school, and because he is the boss and has information from other divisions that major crimes people do not have access to. He may be annoying but Taylor saved lives this episode. The reviewer obviously allowed dislike of Taylor to colour their interpretation of the plot.
True Blood Review: What If God Was One of Us
8/6/2012 11:28 AM
This episode was okay. I wonder if anyone has picked up on the mystery of Lilith's blood. When Bill drank Salome's blood he started to hallucinate about Lilith again and got a certain look on his face, like he had figured something out. I think the blood in the vial that they have been drinking is actually Salome's blood. Why it causes them to hallucinate, I have no idea. It could get dangerous for Salome because Eric's sister only became a Lilith freak after drinking what she thought was Lilith's blood. If she and the other council members find out that they have been conned, Salome's house of cards will come tumbling down. Thank goodness the Ifrit storyline is over. Love Pam, and the new sheriff looks Goth hot. Hope he stays a while.
