The Big Bang Theory Review: Hallow-weenies (10/26/2012)This episode was a semi return to normal for the series. I've been very critical the last few seasons saying it has gone from being a funny show to a show about relationships with no seriousness. Every time one of the characters gets close to having a serious conversation they dump out of that story with a cheep joke. This episode changed that it was funny and dealt with serious issues in a serious way. Howard and Bernadette's conversation about him in space was heartfelt and Penny's starting to look closely at her relationship with Leonerd. I hope future episodes use this formula that deals with issues but is funny at the same time. However, I still don't like Amy.
Mad Men Review: Merry Krishna (5/21/2012)I have really been enjoying this season because all of the characters are having different life experiences and can be themselves, much like the mid to late 60s. I do have a few observations. I have been waiting for Paul to return, as have all the major characters that did not come to S.C.D.P. at the end of season 3. At first I was surprised how they wrote him in, but after thinking about it I can see it. He always thought outside the box and brought drugs into the work place. While I was interested in the storyline I just didn't get the part between him and Harry. I just don't care for Harry's character I don't understand who he's supposed to be sometimes he cares and other times he acts like he couldn't care less and is awkward. The other note I have is that while I like Megan, but she is getting paranoid. I agreed with her original suspicions she needs to trust her husband and not over react. This season is certainly unique, but I just don't know how it will end. Only three episodes left and I don't see it building to something.
Mad Men Review: Mystery Halluci-date (4/9/2012)I thought this was one of the best episodes of the series as it has the characters struggling for survival. The only interpretation of Don's dream that I will make is this: is he killing off his desires to cheat? I liked that Joan told her husband its over, but was expecting to her to tell him it's not his baby, I also want her back at work interacting with the other characters. I am also beginning to like Roger more as he has to make deals to keep up. His lines are the best of the show. I also wonder if this episode sets the stage for a dark turn in the characters story lines. Placing these first three episodes against the current events of the time show how the characters are experiencing the same things the country is times are changing in a dramatic way and everyone is struggling to survive.
