This episode was okay but it didn't really show much. With a few episodes left until the finale, I'd think bigger surprises or revelations would come out. Nothing significant really came out of Duncan and what's the big deal with the concert? Maybe everything will be tied up again in the finale but I hope they have a more intense build up towards the identity of A before that. And on a side note, I'm still for Toby and Spencer! Her and Wren might have chemistry but we can't deny that Toby was really who Spencer loved.

Smash Review: Bad, Bad Behavior

I think what we saw in this episode between Ivy and Karen had a lot to do with how one has what the other needs. Neither of them are perfect and it looks to me like these two need to feed of each other's strengths cause those are their weaknesses. Ivy was an annoying diva but at the same time those are rooted from her insecurities. Karen's an optimistic and hopeful person so she has confidence. I think the show will continue to feed on that and see how these two characters develop through the workshops. As for Julia, I like how this gives her more than just her work but it feels a too rushed and forced for me. There's chemistry between her and Michael but I think they could've built things up better. It's been years since they last saw each other then on a drunken night, they just end up kissing. I would've wanted more build up there so that the moment meant more. Leo seeing it was predictable and it just leads to a predictable confrontation. They should've given this more time.

Episode 18's press release is also out and it definitely suggests where Erica's story will be going. From these releases, I think it's pretty great how they're handling the rest of this arc as it will probably make way for an even better one in the future. With a few episodes left, I'm hoping and praying that Private Practice gets picked up for another season. We need to see more! And other fans should look for the other pictures from this episode. Those between Charlotte and Mason are great :)

Modern Family Review: Cam's 10th Birthday

Another great episode! All the storylines of the Pritchetts were just developed well and ended well. I kind of wish we got to see the Wizard of Oz party play out but the resulting "party" still delivered. Happy 10th Birthday, Cam!

Smash Review: Poisonous Ivy

Ivy's talent cannot be denied, that's for sure. She does fit the part and she has the talent to prove that she deserves to be the star. But this week, we really saw how even if it might root from her insecurities, she can be a total diva and that isn't very attractive. At this point, I think we'll really start to look at how Karen fairs in the rest of the workshops duration. It really seems like she's the one willing to change herself and her ways to be a better actress and to do what's best for the production. For now, she still isn't ready to be Marilyn but somewhere down the road, I think we'll be seeing her as the show's star. Really good episode and I liked how it really highlighted the strengths and weaknesses of both Ivy and Karen. I'm on Team Karen!

How I Met Your Mother Review: Misery Business

Pretty good episode. The Marshall and Lily part didn't really appeal to me until the end but it was sweet. And their scenes with Robin definitely provided most of the humor for the episode. It was good too see Robin in a much lighter position this week because lately it's been pretty heavy stuff for her. So the "Dear Diary" scenes paired with that final scene between her and Ted provided a good balance for the episode. I'm definitely looking forward to what goes on between Barney and Quinn from here. I'm still a firm believer that Robin is Barney's bride but the way they've played out these flirtations between Barney and Quinn definitely makes the pairing interesting. And as for Ted, I'm glad he's moving on. Maybe he'll go and start the renovations of his house or something. Who knows? Endless possibilities again and that's exciting.

This sounds like a Gossip Girl / 90210 plot done in the 80s. And knowing The CW, it'll most likely be like that. Big chances that they ruin the very essence of who Carrie Bradshaw is.

Pretty Little Liars Review: Mom Knows Best

I think it was good because of the stuff that came out between Spencer and her dad but I agree there wasn't enough questions asked with regards to Melissa. I get that Spencer wants to protect her sister as much as she can but the video is pretty much enough evidence to cause serious suspicions which are enough to at least question Melissa. I like how Ashley and Ella are now getting into the investigation of A is. I think it makes it more interesting that way and it raises the level of just how dangerous A could really be. But of course, I hope nothing serious happens to either of them because they're the cool moms of the show. I can't really connect to Maya's character and her relationship with Emily so whether or not she really contributes to the identity of A, then let's just see. And I'm definitely interested in them exploring that guy who mistook Aria for Vivian. There has to be something there.

I thought Charlotte and Cooper were great, Jake was so great to Addison, and Sam's story with Corinne is really getting better and more intense. It was a good episode for those reasons. But of course, all good things have their flaws. Like what Christina said, is it even a question anymore if Addison's patients get the happy ending that they want? When was the last time Addison failed a patient? Violet and Pete. Oh geez. I don't even know what to say about that but I completely agree on this week's VAS. And as for Amelia's pregnancy - I think that's what I disliked the most about this episode. It came out of nowhere and not in a good way. It felt forced and for me, it's an arc that isn't right for the character and for the entire show. But I guess we'll just see how it goes.
