Criminal Minds Review: Head Games

Very good, suspenseful episode with plenty of twists and turn. Never enough of Dr. Reid but I'm getting used to being disappointed by the writers in that area. Hate waiting for May for a new one but know it will be worth it.

One of the most rewarding, satisfying dramas on TV. This episode is a standout. Rates a 6 out of 5 stars. Members of my family have had to learn to deal with and overcome the effects of molestation, though not me personally. I do know it's an on-going process that ever only ends at death. By that I mean it's a life-long process. I am so happy that Buford got what he had deserved for 40 years... in real life I would say "hope it hurt like hell". Buford's conversation to Islam was a sham and I hope no Muslims were offended by it. That perv's only god was himself. On the other hand, Morgan's most courageous moment of this entire series was standing in front of those cameras and admitting what had happened to him as a child. May I just mention once again that more of Dr. Reid would greatly be appreciated. The one show this season that actually featured him was so heart-breaking we (the royal we, of course) would love to see more episodes in which he plays as important a part as Morgan did in this week's show.

Bones Review: The Secret Is In The Sauce

Love Finn. Maybe it's a regional thing, but his Southern sayings and attitudes are funny and heart-warming. Then when Hodgins went to so much work to duplicate the sauce we saw what a really good human he is, not the rubber-band snapping paranoid from the first season. While we expect Brennan to be Brennan, the "perfect child" routine went a bit overboard. And while I disagree with most of Alex Indigo's opinions, I agree the writers like Booth too much. He is one of the most irritating characters on the show. At least Brennan has the brains to back it up, he's a know-it-all blowhard. Thank goodness she hasn't married him. And like Alex, I'm really looking forward to next week's episode. BTW, do you think Hodkins and Finn might recoup some of Hodkins' lost fortune with the hot sauce?

Castle Review: Here's to 100 More!

Absolutely fabulous. What a great twist and so much fun while still keeping "on the job" for our crew. I'm watching it again today, I know there were bits I missed, but this show is one of the main reasons I still enjoy TV. Never has a romantic relationship between the two protagonists been done so well. Just enough heat to be interesting, but still the snarky remarks and solid working relationship. Well done... very well done. P.S. Anyone who thinks Beckett was insensitive to worry Castle has clearly not watched this show for any length of time.

NCIS Review: The Agent and the Admiral

After meeting with McGee's jerk of a father I can now see how he has put up with Tony's sarcasm, practical jokes, insults and general stupidity all these years. He grew with someone like that, only with a mean streak. McGee's a great actor and really shone last night. Only Gibbs, Abby and sometimes Ziva have shown him any respect before, now maybe the viewers will. He's just naturally a good, loyal, kind, courageous man... not a joke even the writers feel free to make fun of on their whim. What's with taking Jimmy back to his long-ago silly kid days? I felt like I was in a time warp with his inappropriate jokes and big stupid grins. He hasn't acted like that in quite a long while. What gives? BTW, when is this top-rated of all shows going to be shown respect by the entertainment media and community? They should be winning awards, instead of one-offs from Showtime, HBO, etc. Just asking...

Castle Review: A Mob and a Mistress

This show just keeps on getting better and better. There are no minor characters, everyone has an important role to play. I always miss Martha and Alexis but they get their times to shine, too. Ryan was awesome. His character was so nuanced, the tough thug, the regret over the hurt he had caused, the really smart player. It's wonderful that there's always humor too, plus romance but never overdone. Well played, everyone. Well written, too, that goes without saying. Can't imagine ever getting tired of Castle.

Criminal Minds Review: Psycho Shell Game

Very good episode although there were unanswered questions. Gibson has real talent as a director. But more of Spencer, please. He's such a fascinating character and hides so much. He needs his own "Penelope" to help him through his bad times. And I'd like to see more of his mother... she's fascinating and their relationship is hear-warming.

Castle Review: Exes Come and Go

For a great character-driven show, not just Becket and Castle but all the regular cast, they also managed to have an interesting crime to solve. I was Castle-deprived after a month and would have been happy with a less-than-great episode but it turned out to be far more interesting than I had anticipated. Esposito and Ryan giving Castle relationship advice was so cool, you can tell they are watching out for Beckett and they don't want him messing things up.

All I ask is a lot more of Spencer Reid. Lots, lots more. Gubler is so talented and the character he portrays so appealing I don't know why we don't have more screen time with him. I love all the characters, but Dr. Reid makes the show.

Bones Review: Joke's Over

I really enjoyed the show. The ick factor was actually funny and Booth was spot on with his stand-up routine. He's usually so grim and condescending it was a refreshing change. Brennan as usual can do no wrong, but sometimes it feels like she's just another character, not the "back Bones" of the show.
As for the other characters, I love them all (except for Pelant, may he roast in flames before he dies). I agree that there isn't enough Caroline (cher) any longer, she has a wicked sense of humor. So does Fisher with his deeply neurotic personality. I totally get Cam and Arastoo, he's always been a favorite intern and their relationship isn't taking over the show, it's like our little secret. Angela and Hodgins are always good, I just wish there were more time to develop their characters on a personal level. Same with Sweets and that darling Southern intern.
Anyway, I love the show, even the "fillers" and look forward to next week's episode, same as always.
