Funny thing is, how were they selling her? I mean what was her USP? Here's the woman the U.S. president loves and you can control him? As there affair is not public knowledge. Or under the guise that olivia worked eithin the White house and has information that is highly sensitive which enemies will benefit from? If it's the latter the price would be high.

I'm pretty sure that was the angle. "Here's a woman who has had top secret security clearance at the White House. Her secrets are important for national security, etc etc."

I liked the bonnie and damon reunion - they do things low key with returns. But i did notice that it was more energetic and passionate than Damon's reunion with Elena. Ian and Nina had a lot of chemistry in the past but their real life troubles are showing on screen - when they are together it is quite dull and ho hum.

Black Sails Season 2 Episode 5 Review: XIII

I did enjoy the episode, though I wonder at how polarizing it may be to some to humanize every pirate the way the show is doing, though perhaps that is the ultimate intent. I remember hating Vane in season 1, thinking "this is like Walking Dead setting up the Governor" now I'm in a place where I don't wish to see either captain bite it, though once again, that must be the intent, to make us feel emotionally conflicted when one of these characters inevitably must die. I seriously think every damn episode this season is bound and determined to end on a cliffhanger though.

Next week it will resume with Flint flint gazing into Vane's eyes and stating, "You have spectacular pectorals, mate". Then they will rub their dicks together to secure the Emmy win.

Would someone please explain to me just how a civilian managed to smuggle a gun into a New York City police station? I come from a relatively small town, but even as far back as the 1970's, you had to go through a metal detector before you could get past the lobby of our local PD. Bad storytelling this week; very disappointing. Also, I think Gormley's remark about how Frank had no idea what it meant to be a parent of a troubled child was more worthy of notice than what is featured in this review. Frank Reagan either beat his children into submission when they were young or he kept them sedated until they were old enough to vote.

Frank's kids did not have formula in their baby bottles, it was scotch or Irish whiskey. The premise of this show is goofy. Danny does not deserve all the attention, I agree.

Double- or single malt? Never mind; no self-respecting Irishman would waste the good stuff on some snot-nosed kid, even if it was his own.

Reviewers seem to have had a bad week for some reason. Blue Bloods is a story about the lives, struggles, crisis and cases of NYPD personnel (and the Attorney Generals office) told through the eyes and 'experiences', of 3 generations of Police - Commissioners, detectives, beat cops and prosecutors. The characters can't change every week so it's always going to be Danny and Baez as the Detectives. By the way, without Baez' smarts Danny wouldn't have 'saved the day'. A bit of perspective please. You could substitute 1000's of NYPD officers (and AG prosecutors) for the Reagans and Baez. Most seem to be missing that point. It's a testament to the work and strugglers of all NYPD officers not the saga of the heroic Reagan family.

It might seem easy to cover a show five years straight for 22 episodes a year, but it's challenging. Talking about the sweeping saga of Blue Bloods works great if you're checking in on it once or twice a season, but weekly it makes sense to examine the story through the characters, which is also the way the writers have chosen to tell it. Viewers invest in the Reagan family and their struggles and triumphs, while also recognizing they represent the many who work on behalf of the city. When one person is always the hero, it starts to feel a little too Die Hard and less everyday hero. :-)

Supercilious cComments like "What happened to your backbone, oh mighty SEAL?" do you no credit at all. Yes, this was the first and probably only episode I've seen (all of them) that wasn't quite up to scratch but that doesn't give you licence to climb onto your extra high horse and pour your sarcasm down upon the cast. Your job is to review not to trash (or so I thought). Give us a break will you?

As a reviewer, it's my job to give my honest opinion about an episode. The comment you mention is not a criticism directed at Alex O'Loughlin, but a complaint against the writing and/or editing department. If we, the viewers, are supposed to believe that Steve is a trained, experienced, and professional SEAL, he should not have given in so swiftly to Agent Millford's pleading to stay on the case. The fact that he did made him look like a total pushover, the way I saw it. I normally enjoy Hawaii Five-0 when I get the chance to watch it, and I had no intention to "trash" this particular episode; if you believe that I was overly harsh in my assessment, that's absolutely your prerogative.

Madam Secretary Season 1 Episode 10 Review: Collateral Damage

The character of Stevie is insufferable. I don't understand why the writers had her mother tell her about the torture episode anyway. Why? "'Cause I have to.'" Uh, why? There was no reason that I could discern. I like the adult characters fairly well but Stevie is the epitome of what's wrong with kids on TV shows. Not blaming the actress--she's just playing what she's been given.

It seems like there is a requirement to be met by Starz or HBO.To have sex scenes and at least one character has to be gay. I never thought it would be Flint. There was one sex scene with Flint and Miranda in SEASON 1 and he wasn't at all least interested. Does he love Miranda at all?
