The Blacklist 2×06 ‘The Mombasa Cartel’: “Lizzie’s locker mystery”

The Most Dangerous Game is a short story I read in high school and have seen countless of times as parodies on TV from an episode of Archer, American Dad and now The Blacklist with a twist of poachers being staked out and brought to this random piece of land to be hunted, killed and stuffed for fun.  Read more »

Agents of SHIELD 2×06 ‘A Fracrured House’: Morse code

Hydra is now on the offensive after the team’s marginal win last week by attacking the United Nations and planting doubt in the mind of the public. Simmons and Morse get comfortable in the new SHIELD headquarters while Fitz struggles to adapt with Jemma’s return. Ward’s brother, Senator Christian Ward, is on a witch hunt to stop these attacks from continuing.

The Goldbergs 2×05 ‘Family Takes Care of Beverly’: Pity Circus Peanuts

This season The Goldbergs decided to ditch a full blown Halloween episode and focus on something else – family. While the holidays were present with Voltron and too much taffy, it was more about life lessons, urban legends and being there for one another.

Supernatural 10×04 ‘Paper Moon’ : “I need to work.”

Here we are, Dean is no longer a demon and Sam and he are ready to work.  No Crowley, no Castiel, just the Winchesters and some girl named, Kate, who is a werewolf.  It’s almost a classic Monster-of-the-Week episode.  Except this brings back an old character and has a little bit less hunting than most.  But I did love the bit where Sam and Dean were dressed up as…some sort of Wildlife Officers?  I couldn’t tell exactly, but they had fancy shirts!

The Flash 1×04 ‘Going Rogue’: Cold snaps

The Flash reaches new heights this week with the introduction of Captain Cold and the return of a familiar face from Arrow.

So it looks like the weak villains were the only thing really holding this series back from being genuinely great. Because this episode rocked from top to bottom. What continues to amaze is the character interactions. Felicity is always a welcome presence on any show so it was nice to see her get a guest star spotlight. Her presence also included some notable insight into the life of a superhero support squad. Arrow has only been around a few years but it’s safe to say that Felicity is well educated in the manners of superhero business.

Faking It 2×06 ‘Ecstasy and the Agony’ Lauren’s on Drugs

Amy and Karma’s relationship still isn’t back to normal. It probably never will be, but they can build up to a better, stronger friendship. I mean if you can over come the unrequited best friend love, you can pretty much get through anything. Or we can hope because you know the Amy/Liam sex secret is going to come busting out.  Read more »

NCIS 12×06 ‘Parental Guidance Suggested’: “Popcorn and hot chocolate.”

It’s the week of Halloween (Halloweek as it’s been aptly called) and of course in keeping with NCIS tradition, they have given us a Halloween themed episode. Huzzah! As we’ve seen in the past, NCIS tends to go all out for their themed episodes, both with story and with the activities of the team. In this week’s episode, however, the story stands out the most, despite the efforts of the team to celebrate the spooky holiday in style.

Forever 1×07 ‘New York Kids’: It can’t end now!

Things aren’t looking too good for Henry and the gang. While this show is still absolutely fantastic, the ratings are not showing it, which means the man who can’t die might finally get his wish.

Chicago Fire - Season 3

Chicago Fire 3×06 ‘Madmen and Fools’: I’m an anaconda man myself

I think this is one of the only episodes, if not the only one, that didn’t involve any fire at all but it’s rife with awesome quotes like the one in the title. I think Nicki Minaj needs to write an extra verse about a firefighter named Kelly. I’m more than a little upset and confused as to why they would leave us with such a strange ending right before the triple crossover with Chicago PD and SVU. I fully expected Sylvie to come to Vegas and surprise Severide while playing craps, but this new love interest could be important to a storyline involving Severide and Erin Lindsay in two weeks. However, that’s only if she turns out to be from Chicago or Kelly decides to bring her back to save her from an abusive pimp or something. Read more »

Scorpion 01×06 ‘True Colors’: Brought to you by Lowcountry Chevrolet, just off the 56 connector

It would seem that Scorpion would like to get all of their TV tropes out of the way within the first season. Two weeks ago was the required Las Vegas themed episode, last week was the villain from the forgotten past, and this week it’s the flashback episode, and it was sort of weird. Read more »

Castle 7×05 ‘Meme Is Murder’: “Hi, I’m Crichard Ratchle”

That last scene was definitely worth the episode, but it didn’t stop there. This episode hits a tough subject hard, and was actually effective.

Gotham 1×06: ‘Spirit of the Goat’: Nanananananana Goat….man?

I cannot be the only one. That has to be purposeful. I will eat my fingers off if that was not done on purpose. Either that or I’m missing something from the comics, which would surprise no one, including me. But, hey, keep on with the great episodes!

The Walking Dead 5x03 Cover

The Walking Dead 5×03 ‘Four Walls and a Roof’: Sheer brutality

I’d say it’s a good thing when The Walking Dead proves me wrong.  Of course, it’s still a largely predictable show, what with Michonne getting her katana back and no major characters being put into the ground just yet (sorry Bob, but you don’t really count as “major”).  But to see Rick mutilate Gareth with a machete until he’s unrecognizable…there’s something to be said about that.  Because even though The Walking Dead is a show built on spectacle, it doesn’t punch to the gut all that often.  It sidesteps doing that in order to preserve the premise that it was built on, as well as the audience being comfortable.

The Affair 1×03 ‘Episode 3′: “People need to change to survive”

While the storylines in the past couple episodes have shown a distinct similarity in the timelines of their stories, besides the obvious differences in how they were narrated, this is the first time we see huge deviations in how things went down. Both are still playing the sympathy card, trying to show how the seduction of the other was their downfall, but with these clear deviations, it’s obvious something is up.

Resurrection 2×05 ‘Will’: The power in returning

Just as I assumed last week, this episode, “Will,” was much better. There is a lot more drama and a lot more happiness. We don’t exactly get answers per se, but we do get a sort of explanation to some events that have happened in the series.

I was excited to see you Barbara and Fred reunite. I know that Margaret was not extremely happy about this and Maggie was a little confused, but it’s the first time that Fred has been genuinely happy since the Returned started returning. Throughout the episode, I just had a feeling that he would finally except that these are people and not demons or whatever he thought last season that freaked him out. Read more »

Once Upon A Time 4×05 ‘Breaking Glass’: You’re one of a kind

This weeks episode of Once Upon A Time was definitely better than last week’s. It was action-packed and also had more of the Snow Queen. It also had a lot of humor in it and added a new character who seems to be important. Without further ado, let us get down to analyzing “Breaking Glass.”

There was so much action in this episode. That was the fight between Regina, Emma, and the ice warrior, a small struggle between Elsa and the Snow Queen, and young Emma almost got arrested. I think Regina and Emma working together is really interesting and really good for both of the characters. After all this time, they have learned to cooperate even when they’re angry with one another. Once Emma has Regina on her good side, maybe Emma will get more magic training and be more useful in intense situations. Read more »

Revenge 4×05 “Repercussions”: Fluffy filler

I hate to say this but this week’s episode was fluffier than cotton candy. There’s a lot of back and forth between Emily and her arch nemesis Victoria, which is normally entertaining but this time it was just sort of boring. We’ve seen enough of the glares, smirks, and dramatic statements between these two for a lifetime. You would think with just ten episodes to play with this season we’d see a lot more developments happening. It’s true that the pacing has been quicker than in past seasons but they’ve got much less to work story-wise with this time around. Read more »

Boardwalk Empire 5×08 ‘El Dorado’: I have to see a man about a dog

“Prohibition is the trigger of crime.” ― Ian Fleming.

 

Now that we’ve arrived at the series finale, I feel a deep sense of serenity and poignancy settling over me. I do think that this finale gave the show what it deserved. A fair send off for all of the years of excellent writing, cinematography, storytelling, acting, and costuming. Let’s take one last look at our favorite characters and how their stories end.

Homeland - Episode 4.05 - About a Boy - Promotional Photos

Homeland 4×05 ‘About a Boy’: A tall order

This week, Carrie is scrambling to keep her flighty asset under control while also having unrealistic expectations about what he’s ready to share. Quinn is still a lovelorn puppy who’s uncontrollable emotions are starting to get a little annoying. Fara is a reluctant spy and Saul has the rookie blues. I’ve read a lot of really negative press so far about this season but I’m finding the stories compelling and can’t wait to see what happens next. Read more »
