Proof Season 1 Episode 7 Review: St. Luke's

I had the feeling when I first saw the priest that he was the actual ghost...like you said it was strange that he was there alone for an exorcism. That being said, the priest was there for an exorcism of sorts...he was there to exorcise the guilt that had been weighing Cat down for all these years. It is far easier to forgive someone else than to forgive yourself...even if you weren't to blame. And the "sale" he was trying to make was to persuade Cat to believe again.

I think Will will die next episode.

Great news! I'm loving it :)

I know this was probably tongue in cheek, but how can you, on the one hand, suggest they'd all be better off if Leila ran the country, and on the other hand, admit that her only priority is power. Isn't that what got all the Al-Fayeeds (and all dictators) in trouble in the first place?

Ray Donovan Season 3 Episode 4 Clip: Whores and Coke?

Look forward to the episode. I think this series could be stronger if was a little more ambitious. First two seasons would have been better if it was more about the 'fixing' and less about the family. Would love to see this show move into Sopranos territory, since Donovan/Schreiber is great along with Mr Morell and Jon Voight.

True Detective Season 2 Episode 6 Review: Church in Ruins

This is one of the better reviews I've read because of its honesty. Too many reviews online are way too charitable to this season. It's just not good television. The casting is bad (Vince Vaughn), the dialogue is bad, the plot is poorly presented. I think we get a lot of the Twin Peaks atmosphere especially in the first few episodes mainly because the show doesn't have any real substance.

I've decided to cut the episodes down to decent moments. I don't think I'm going to be able to circle around and tie them all together with a big bow and find any kind of happy ending in a sensical way, but it's not going to do any good to slam my head against the wall watching the final two, either.

I really like the new character Gates Foley, he has a mysterious nature about him that is really compelling (plus I love that his character was listening to "Jungle" by Jamie N Commons and X Ambassadors when he was working at his desk Claire arrived with a bottle of whiskey to ask him for a favor.) The obvious sexual tension between Gates and Claire also seems like it could make for some promising plot developments. Here's hoping that the injection of a new prime character into the Vega storyline will help it catch up with the other two, because that is moving along kinda slowly while the others are full speed ahead.

Rizzoli & Isles Season 6 Episode 7

It wasn't the mother with a gun; it was a lookalike detective Jane spotted near the elevator after Vince told Jane the late Dr. Foley had diagnosed Daniel as a narcissist.

Or like Pretty Little Liars.

Murder in the First Season 2 Episode 6

This season isn't quite as compelling as the first, but it I'm still enjoying it. My only issue is that it seems to lack focus, like the writers are just making up plot twists as they go with no underlying story arc in mind. Call me spoiled by shows like Breaking Bad, Boardwalk Empire, The Fall, and others, but I expect a sharply focused show. The acting is still top notch, but I think the writing is just a little loose this season and they could shore that up and really put this show on the map. There's definitely potential here Oh also props to the show for helping me discover Wishes and Thieves - their song "Let You In" is the one playing when Hildy and Terry enter a strip club where they run into fellow officers, Junior and Raffi. It reminded me of Portishead but more accessible, which is a great thing.
