This was the first season I didn't watch every episode of because it irritated me. The Cary arc went on far too long and I really hated the Alicia/political angle. I like this show centering on Alicia and the firm and some of Alicia's home life. Stretching it out and her out into these other things waters it down too much and there's enough of the nasty politics through the Peter stories without adding to it. Keep it on the firm.

19 Kids and Counting: Should TLC Cancel the Series?

Should the show be pulled definitely....canceled? Well since this latest issue, maybe they should publicly address this on the show, especially since one of the sons is a cop... if you are going to do reality television, then show the entire reality, not just the sugar coated stuff. If they choose not to address this issue, then by all means cancel the show, since you have to show the good as well as the bad if you are doing reality television. That is the reality of families large and small everywhere...

NCIS: New Orleans Season 1 Episode 21 Review: You'll Do

The second they had the flashback where Lasalle says he's going to marry her, I instantly knew she was dead. However, I was expecting her death to come in 5 seasons, not 5 minutes!

Though I really enjoyed some of the scenes in this finale I was disappointed by the finale. Especially since Jeremy Carver promised something that would change things but instead we got an argument about who's evil, Death dying (I don't believe that for a minute), Rowena getting what she wanted all along and some LOST black smoke monster. The whole thing left me scratching my head. Coodles to Jared and Jensen for some stellar acting (especially Jensen the whole scene with the missing girls father and with Death and Sam was top notch). Season ten has had some really great episodes, the best in a while, too bad it ended a little dumb.

I didn't remember Meisner. Thanks for the remind. So Agent Chavez doesn't know Nick is a Grimm? I wonder if Nick knows she is Wesen.

Just sitting here laughing at this review, if you can even call it that. Of course, Felicity knows how to use the suit - her brains, her ideas, her suit. And just because Felicity offered real emotions, don't discredit that as not being "good character development" because she wasn't "uplifting". She's her own character that is happy, sad, funny, angry - just like every other character. This feels like a "review" used to bash Felicity Smoak. Try again.

This happened in the past. He never admitted to rape. How many people out here have played " spin the bottle" or " truth or dare"? In teenage years people are curious. He admitted to touching. We do not know the whole complete story. This happened 12 years ago. It is possible he is a changed man. God forgives and we should forgive. Just remember we all have stuff in our lives that we did!!!

Of course teenagers are curious. But there is a big difference between consensual experimentation and indulging in sex acts with someone has not consented or isn't old enough to do so. That is reprehensible- as is the hypocrisy of concealing the behavior while spouting "family values."

Wow, what a season. The way they handle Derek's death by just moving on so quickly was upsetting, but I really thought was brilliant. It challenged the audience so much and made his absence really hit deeper to me. Even after all this time, this show still can blow me away with the innovative spins they take on the hospital drama format. Geena Davis was also amazing this season, the best I've ever seen her. The music continues to be a strong point of the show, not only do they introduce me to a lot of cool songs,but they always seem to find a song that just fits the scene perfectly. Loved being introduced to "Let the Light Come In' by Rose Cousins in this episode (when Meredith talks with Alex in the elevator, asking if he’s talked to Jo about her and the kids moving in.) I really liked how they played some covers of songs we've heard before on the show. Jonny P did a great job with John Legend's "Sun Comes Up" when they're all mingling at the part. I have heard "How To Save A Life" so much over the years, whether its this show or just on the radio that I went from loving it to kind of dreading the song, but I actually really liked the Nilu cover that plays Jo asks Alex to sell the house to Meredith and move into a loft with her.

Tanya, first of all thanks for a very good post. You remembered everything well and very clearly. I liked the points you mentioned. I did not realise Sherlock had walked back to the tunnel. I also did not realise that it was his phone he had stomped on. I thought it was the phone he said he had swiped in the room with the junkies because Oscar had either taken away his phone or made him leave it somewhere. I want to believe that Sherlock just looks disheveled, because he has not shaved and is feeling desolate. I felt that he was tormented by Oscar and now after everything, he just wanted to be by himself. Somehow I don't feel he actually took the drugs. He took the box but he knows that if he took the drugs, not only will his father cut him off, but Gregson might not let him consult with the PD. I think the writers just want us to think he took the drugs but somehow I feel he didn't. That's MHO.

I thought it was a smart choice to have almost no Derek in this first episode after his death, because it made the audience feel his absence as strongly as the characters were. It's like he's just gone and you can feel his missing presence more than if they spent this whole episode analyzing it, and there were some great moments that really, really backed this up. How about that scene when Meredith and the kids return home and then we see her laying in the bed alone? Devastating and they didn't have to do anything like having Meredith go through Derek flashbacks or anything like that. I also loved the cover of Snow Patrol's "Chasing Cars" by The Wind & The Wave that they used for this scene, it was a crazy contrast in styles between the original and the cover and it worked real well here. Aron Wright (who this show introduced me to and keeps on playing his music) really did a great job on the "In the Sun" cover at the funeral, too - it also totally lived up to the Joseph Arthur original. The funeral was maybe a little short but other than that I do think it was best that they forced us to move on, just like everyone else had to. It's still upsetting but I think if they had to kill him off, they handled it in a really impactful way that really honored his memory and did his legacy justice
