Royal Pains Review: Handle It
8/2/2012 10:06 PM
I think the Van Dyke thing was a little strange, since it was never his personality in the first place to do something like that.
I did like the rest of the episode, although I am also wondering about Paige and Evan, I wonder if a break-up is coming on. I hope not, I like them together, but I see the writers going with some conflict.
I loved the dog becoming the hard nosed Russian's companion.
The Closer Review: Just One Minute
8/2/2012 10:00 PM
I did not see Willie Ray's death coming, until I saw Brenda's father at the kitchen table, without Willie Ray. I thought they were going to go with a sudden death, but that it would be Clay.
The make up people have to be given some recognition, great shot, and the actress, not even a twitch while your eyes are open. Very good, acting by Kyra as well. I hated to see Willie Ray go, but I will hate to see this entire show go. I've enjoyed every episode.
Burn Notice Round Table: "Shock Wave"
7/29/2012 9:53 AM
My favorite scene was when Michael told his Mom about Nate. How heart breaking. Love Sharon.
No not shocked. Someone did let it slip earlier, but it was the appropriate one to go. Michael had a big smile on his face. He was proud of his little brother there for a moment, before Nate got shot.
I guess Rebecca is a good choice, since she was not in the show, but I'm hoping its not that obvious, and they lead us to believe its her and its not.
I'm glad the storyline is over. Dragging it on would have just irritated eveyone. I do think it was anti-climatic. I would think they would have shown Michael confronting Anson, but then how would Nate have been shot and the next storyline started?
I liked the little brother who screws up story, but I don't think with him gone it hurts the show. Anyone else, I think there would be a big void.
Burn Notice Review: The Cost of Freedom
7/29/2012 9:39 AM
Jade....relax. We all have our opinions, no one gets everything right every time, and I'm sure that includes you.
I'm sad that Nate is gone, the little brother that is a screw up, did add to the show. But if someone had to go, then I think they picked the right one. Now Michael will spend some time looking for Nate's killer. Rebecca is a good theory, but that also might where the writers want us to think its going. We will see.
I'm glad the Anson part is done. I love Ayn, and I hope we see her again. Maybe as the client of the week. Glad Fiona is out and they did not drag that out too long. I loved the scene where Michael tells his Mom, great acting. I'm sure there has to be some feelings of guilt from Michael and a little anger from Mom towards Michael. This is a great show, sorry to see only a couple left before another break.
Common Law Review: Waiting for Truth
7/29/2012 9:11 AM
I think that it showed how they will stay together as partners, where as in the beginning of the show, you weren't quite sure. Travis telling his old mentor, that Wes is his partner and its their case, showed that.
I do agree with the reviewer, that they need a stronger last 2 shows, to get this show renewed. I like it, but it needs a little more intensity and action. I hope they renew it, I think the actors work well together.
Who ELSE is Returning to Hawaii Five-0?
7/29/2012 9:03 AM
@Martinelli....she does get into a lot. Now Mom will be there to see what has happened to her little girl.
I can't wait to see the reactions of both Steve and Mary. There has to be some mistrust or hard feelings towards Mom McG. It will add some good story telling along with everything else that is happening.
I've noticed in the shots that I've seen, that Chin is not wearing his usual Hawaiian shirts. I wonder if thats a sign of his personality change that the writers were referring to.
Perception Review: 17 Again
7/25/2012 8:12 AM
I agree that this show has improved each week. RLC's acting, or rather the writing for her, has improved as well. I have to admit, I thought she was a lot younger then what she really is. As we see more episodes, I'm sure we will see her as more mature. I did like her them introducing her father.
I love the actor that played him, I hope we see a lot of him.
Eric as usually really shines with this character. The plot and weekly diagnosis was great. I'm liking this show more and more.
Burn Notice Round Table: "Split Decision"
7/24/2012 9:10 AM
1 - Sam and Rebecca, have to agree I like them together.
2 - He really doesn't have a choice at this point, but I don't think he should totally trust her. Not yet anyway.
3 - I thought it was relatively easy. I'm not sure Rebecca thinks her brother is totally safe, which is why Michael needs to keep one eye open when Rebecca is involved.
4 - 5, even though I have doubts about Rebecca, I'm really hoping she becomes one of the team. Sam and Rebecca play off each other very well.
5 - I think so. I know he has his own agenda, but he needs Michael, and he knows that means helping Fiona.
Burn Notice Review: Get Out of Jail Card
7/21/2012 7:06 PM
I think being a friend of the CIA helps Fiona, but does not get her out of jail, is what the writers wrote. Thats why Michael still needs to find Anson as his get out of jail card for Fiona.
I guess next week we find out who is the one leaving the show. I hope the Anson thing is almost over. I want Fiona out of jail. Too good a character and actress to keep her in an orange jump suit.
Rebecca and Sam, I think would be good partners. I would like to wait to see if she really trusts Michael and is really not with Anson.
Common Law Review: Testing...?
7/21/2012 6:49 PM
I was sad to hear about only 3 episodes left. I was hoping we would at least get this until September. There are still a lot of things to learn about the two of them.
I know Travis having certain feelings about his foster childhood had to have something to do with his current personality. Prior to this, they showed him as being somewhat happy about his past families, and now they show us that it was not what he tried to make it out to be. Which is what you would expect. I hope we find out more before the show ends. I hope it will be re-newed for another season.
I did feel bad for Capt. Sutton, who has certainly tried everything to save his marriage. They showed that his wife might not have the same sense of commitment. I did feel for him trying to make an excuse for his wife, so that they would hold the table longer.
Royal Pains Review: Darkness for Divya
7/19/2012 10:48 PM
I don't think it was too soon for Hank to go towards another relationship, after all, Jill and he were not together for quite a few episodes. But, I think everyone knew his new job with Boris would get in the way. I think we are not through with Harper as yet. I wonder if she joins HankMed at some point.
I also thought that Rhesma did a great job of showing emotion. I was surprised that they thought it was probably a suicide attempt, or maybe we find something out later, that it wasn't. Poor Divya, relationships are hard for this character.
Well I guess Evan, hires Paige. I hope this does not ruin the relationship, I do like them together.
Rizzoli & Isles Review: How Much Can Jane Take?
7/19/2012 10:37 PM
I thought this was a great episode. I the acting of total terror Angie did, even her body shook like someone who was scared. That was great. I think Sasha did do a good job of acting while watching her friend being tied to a bed. I also think that the friendship between these two women are the key to the success of the show.
I did not like that Maura's biological family was dropped. I know they will come back to it, but they should have continued with it this week, and did the Jane family crisis for next week. But, I still enjoyed the episode.
Perception Review: Guess Who
7/18/2012 9:42 PM
I thought this was a good episode. Eric McCormack plays this man perfectly, very convinced he has all this stuff, going through his head. I see improvement needed, but it is only the 2nd show. I do see this show and these characters growing with great potential. I'll be around for awhile.
The Closer Review: Flynn and Provenza Strike Again!
7/17/2012 10:42 PM
I thought this was very funny. I'm glad they gave us a humorous one, before the sad end of this wonderful show. I love that they had Flynn and Provenza mess up again. Waiting for the evidence to be deposited by the dog was great. Although, I think the lawyer, who they referred to as Bonnie, was not very bright for leaving it in the first place.
I'm still at odds as to who the leak is, with only 4 more episodes left, we will know soon. I'm still leaning towards Pope, because he has turned into such a jerk. I would hate to see it be David, although a possibility. And Sharon, gives these looks, which sometime, you just are so sure where she is coming from.
I would like to see Provenza end up in a relationship. Since trying so many times, going back to the first, would make a good ending.
Common Law Review: And Hudson Makes Three
7/14/2012 7:35 PM
I enjoyed this episode. I see what you mean that they have to get a little deeper, and not so much light hearted. I loved seeing Wes having to push Hudson off the bed over and over, finally giving up and falling asleep right next to him. Wes obviously still has deep feeling for Alex, and Alex does seem to have feeling for Wes, but just can't seem to live with the fact that he is no longer a lawyer, but a cop. Travis can also be explored on a deeper level. I know he is suppose to be a woman chaser, but I think they are taking it a little too far. He was a foster child, and I love when he visits his families, so I would love to see him deal with something more serious in an adult way. I know this show is new and I'm willing to give it a good long chance, but I think the writers can do better. The acting is good, the stories just need to be a little better for this show to have a chance to survive. I'll keep watching.
Burn Notice Review: Selling Your Soul
7/13/2012 10:41 PM
I thought it was a great episode. You knew from the start that it would take a number of episodes to get Fiona out, and yet the complaints keep coming. So why watch.
I think Michael realizing that Fiona is basically his life, is what has been building up since the start of the series, and is a natural progression. So having him upset at Fiona's situation is understandable. Fiona is a badass, but when she is clearly out numbered and also trapped being in prison, she can't get away. This is a great series and continues to be.
Royal Pains Review: If It Makes You Happy
7/13/2012 10:26 PM
I agree with a previous comment, that Paige's thought was, she was hired because of her looks, and not her talent. So, even though that has nothing to do with her talent, if you are insecure about something in the first place, then you can understand where Paige was coming from when she found out her talent did not get her the job. I'm glad Boris is back. He always makes for an interesting story.
I have heard of spotted fever, but not everyone has heard of everything. I'm sure there are things that all of you don't know about, but are widely known by others. So maybe putting others down for not knowing something is rude and uncalled for.
Rizzoli & Isles Review: The Kindness of Strangers
7/12/2012 10:03 PM
Product placement is here to stay. Its happening more and more. It doesn't make me go out and buy anything, and I can take it or leave it, but they just had people bringing it up, which is more advertisement.
As for the show, I think they could have done better with the nun character. I've always enjoyed the actress who plays her, but this needs better writing. I think the 18 yr old, even though she went to oxford, is still an 18 yr old, who contracted a disease because of her mom bringing her on her job, and now needs a kidney to live. I think the attitude is about what you would expect. I'm sure the kidney will probably be given to her at some point, and the shock of finding out will pass. This is a good story line and I've enjoyed it.
Perception Series Premiere Review: What Did You Think?
7/11/2012 10:16 PM
Seriously people, all you got out of it was an insult on Bush? How many times did that happen during his 8 yrs in office? By the way they did do a Clinton one as well, or did you just conveniently ignore that, and start blaming the liberal media? Both republicans and democrats lie equally. What are you new in town?
Eric McCormack did a great job. RLC could have done a little better, but I'm willing to give her a chance for a few episodes. She does look very young, I don't know how old she really is, but she looks more like she would be Eric's daughter. I thought it was interesting, and will continue to watch.
The Closer Review: The One That Got Away
7/11/2012 9:25 AM
Does anyone know if the show will change its name once Kyra leaves? I missed a lot of that.
I never really liked Pope and always thought he was out for himself, so it could be him. I liked Gabriel for most of the seasons, but it could be that he is the leak. He has had a chip on his shoulder the couple of seasons.
Who is Returning to Hawaii Five-0?
7/11/2012 9:12 AM
It will be great to see Ed Asner back. He did a great job. I wonder if he helps or helps himself again. That was a big surprise, I did not see coming, when he shot the girl who got Mary involved in the diamond smuggling.
I'm also glad that Peter L cleared up Catherine not being on the team, but helping out the team while still being in the Navy. Maybe those that were upset can relax now. This is why I prefer to see what they do, before going off on something that has not happened yet. I'm really excited for this season, a lot of great stories. It's good to see them back at work.
Hawaii Five-0 Season 3 Casting Scoop: Christine Lahti As...
7/3/2012 9:07 PM
I love this choice. I did not think of her at all, but I'm thrilled. She is a great actress, can't wait for the season opener.
There are still people out there saying the Shelburne story is going to continue. It's been solved, Shelburne is Doris McGarrett. Since she will have a recurring role, we will find out the story behind her faked death, and why she stayed away. It's TV so anything is possible. I think Alex and Christine will do well together as mother and son. I hope she turns out to be kick ass like her son. Wofat will find out at some point, so there are all sorts of possibilities for her role. Along with the other 3 story lines, I think this coming season will be great.
Rizzoli & Isles Season 4: Confirmed!
7/3/2012 9:23 AM
Great, I love this show. I'm surprised they announced it so soon.
Burn Notice Round Table: "Last Rites"
7/3/2012 9:19 AM
The scene with Michael and Fiona in prison was heartbreaking. They are showing how much Michael truly loves Fi. The acting was great, and will probably be the most memorable scene of the series.
I liked Ayn, but Fiona should not totally trust her. The actress who play Ayn is great. I hope we see more of her.
Pearce and Jesse, absolutely there is something there. I hope they pursue this.
I think Pearce became more like Michael in this episode. But she may rub off on Michael as well. I do think that Pearce is more accepting of Michael's methods, certainly trusts all of them now.
I never thought about Chuck Finley being used too much. You are right though, someone in Miami must remember the name. Although this is one of Sam's things, that I don't think will go away.
Royal Pains Review: It Lives?!
6/30/2012 11:47 PM
Not the greatest episode, but it was still entertaining. It's TV, so people constantly pointing out things that are not plausible is pointless. It's TV not reality. If you are entertained then, whats wrong with that. If I was am not, then I would move on. Reality is off your couch and out the door.
I'm glad they finally ended with Hank and Evan not being partnered anymore. I'm also glad that Boris is back, he does give some good story lines. I liked that Eddie was back. Divya's mom leaving her father might be interesting. I know there are those who want Jill back, I liked her, but I was getting tired of the, is she or isn't she leaving, at least they made up their minds finally. I agree the previous seasons were better, but I'm not giving up on this show yet, I'm still interested.
