since there really are only four major hair colors, and of course gray, why do we whine about another brunette. Red is already taken on this show as someone else’s obsession, blondes are stereotyped, maybe Tony happens to like brunettes. I doubt this one will have an accent and bungle the english language so all is safe here. And I really haven’t noticed that Tony has a thing for blondes. Wendy had brown hair too. Tony likes women, period.

Doctor Who Season 8 Episode 5 Review: Time Heist

I'm with Kathleen, I enjoyed this ep. In fact this was the first one all season so far that I did enjoy. As my Daughter said, it takes a few eps for new doctors to settle into the character and for us, the audience to cone to grips with the new doctor.
Definitely looking forward to next week's ep.

Z Nation Season 1 Episode 2 Review: Fracking Zombies

I am really enjoying this. I watch TWD, but last year it was getting kind of tedious. My teenager only like Carl on TWD and we're bummed when Glen lost his Candice attitude. Pizza boy Glen was so much cooler than muscled up Glen. I have always been a fan of the zombie genre and welcome a little gallow humor. I think, from understanding some of the themes of the show, the reason the gas mission failed is that they are taking a zombie apocalypse road trip across our great nation. You would not want them getting to California in 2 weeks. I kinda hope they take Route 1 and 66 myself as I'm sure I-95 must have had a few traffic jams. We did not see the dog get bit. Maybe they were just body checking each other. I hope the dog stays alive as Citizen Z is going to go bonkers without him. It would be interesting and rather soul crushing if he said screw the scientists and downloaded the files before he blew the generator...

Carissa, Thanks for guiding us through this maze of a TV show with your great reviews and comments. It has been an interesting journey. This show is a jigsaw puzzle with most of the pieces missing. Here's hoping it gets renewed and we can add a few more pieces to the puzzle..

I think I enjoyed this story more than you did, Carissa! It was an enjoyable romp, with a classic "Mission: Impossible" vibe (TV show, not the movies). I suspected a few things and correctly figured out some of the twists, but I had fun nonetheless. It became fairly obvious early on that this was an inside job, for instance, and I guessed that our heroes' motivation for robbing the bank was going to be ultimately altruistic in nature, that there was some positive goal at heart. Here's a rundown of some of the interesting references I observed from this episode: This isn't the first time that a teleport has been disguised as a death-ray; we saw one of those on the Game Station in "Bad Wolf", all the way back in Season 1! (It's also worth mentioning that the Doctor has been described, multiple times, as being "good with teleports".) Psi's "rogues gallery" included a number of familiar faces, from Classic Who to Torchwood to The Sarah Jane Adventures. The memory-nomming worms last appeared in "The Snowmen". The Doctor and Clara previously reunited a seemingly-monstrous couple in "Hide." The Doctor still hasn't rerouted the phone back to the center console, as he asked Handles to remind him to do in "The Time of the Doctor."

Newsflash!! Every pretty brunette actress is not a Ziva look alike or a Ziva wannabe. Personally, while I'm glad the writers are not writing Tony as mourning after a woman who treated him like scum anymore, I would be far more excited if there was a Tony spoiler letting us know that Tony would be the feature agent in a really exciting and danger filled case or better still, arc. I'm so tired of Gibbs and anyone but Tony being the main players in all the really suspenseful, dangerous, action packed episodes while Tony stays behind and clicks the clicker.

Hell on Wheels Season 4 Episode 8 Review: Under Color of Law

Do NOT want showdown between Cullen and Syd. Syd will lose. Yes, appreciate the actor and character but maybe Sean you're just seeing the Jax Teller in him especially in the scene where he "danced" around after shooting someone... just saying he looks so much like Charlie Hunnam...

I do see what you mean in that Charlie Hunnam look. If anything I just really like how the character and actor brings something a bit different to the show.

To be fair and balanced, and not to have Carissa think that I am a total jerk, here is my read on Grace. I think that Grace loves, likes, and cares about Neil’s wellbeing, three things that aren’t necessarily all present (I think that Neil reciprocates those feelings). I think she has been so wrapped up in her own thoughts that she hasn't noticed a lot of what is going on around her. Maybe being self-centered (nicest phrase I could come up with) is temporary. She is impulsive and doesn't think things through before acting. I think she is a good person that made a bad decision in having an affair. I doubt that she really knows what she wants and the affair could well be part of her quest for self-discovery. I think that it may have started as a fling but continued for six months because Simon was giving her something that she wasn’t getting from Neil. She may have felt something was missing but didn’t know what before the affair. I don’t think it is sex. She could have her way with Neil anytime she wants. Although, she may not want to have sex with Neil because of something he did, didn’t do, or is doing (women are funny that way). Of course, in this marriage, Neil and Grace never talk about what is bothering them. Even in the final episode they seem to reach some kind of understanding through a process that could only be described as mental telepathy. I think she is confused. She wants to fix her marriage but doesn’t know how. (Marriage counseling would be a good start, but who knows if that is going to happen. She may need a few individual sessions with her therapist so sort out her feeling before it makes sense to see a marriage counsel with Neil.) She is conflicted. She knows she should end things with Simon, which we all know isn’t going to happen is this series, at least anytime some, but there is some tie with Simon that she isn’t ready to cut.

I doubt that Carissa thinks that I am a jerk, but I think I may have given her a little heartburn once of twice.

Nobody has the impression that you are a jerk. We just give our impressions on the series. Our batting averages are very low. It is amazing how much back story the writers were able to create in the period of less than 10 minutes. I imagine before the series is over, we will get a better understanding of where Neil and Grace came from. The creator of the series (Sean Jablonski) has stated that their difficulties are far from over, and he also stated that the Grace -Simon relationship will take a different course. So let the guessing begin. The series, according to the wife of a buddy of mine, who is a producer of a rather substantial show on ABC, has better than a 60 or 70 % chance of renewal.

How come the zombies are no longer sprinting like they did in the first episode?

What do you expect consistancy from a show like this? Next the zombies will be playing dead. Oh wait they already did in the first episode. Next episode they will probably be dancing to the song "Thriller?" What about the infected dog that attacked the normal dog. Sounded like he was bit, but seemed completely normal a few minutes later. Are the writers asleep at the wheel or something?
