Supernatural 9×19 ‘Alex Annie Alexis Ann’ : “If you two are FBI, then I’m Taylor Swift”

I mean, on one hand, I really liked this episode.  We have a monster-of-the-week with a recurring tertiary character, which generally adds up to fun.  I like seeing the Winchesters around someone with whom they are comfortable, because I think it shows some of their soft insides.  On the other hand, I really want to get to the bottom of the Abaddon-Metatron-Cas-Crowley-Angels-Heaven-Mark of Cain-Whatever story arc that has played over this season.  I feel like this season is super annoying to me because it feels really inconsistent.

Melissa & Joey 3×30 ‘More Than Roommates’: Nona’s last seat

This was the first time in a long time that three stories got to actually play out without anyone really getting the short end of the stick. Mel and Joe had their chair situation, feelings were brewing between Lennox and Zander, and Ryder got more action and a song.

Awkward. 4×02 ‘Listen to This’: Silent adoption

Another solid episode. This season is a tremendous improvement from last season. The writers are not being lazy and are actually creating somewhat better story-lines. I like that the show is starting to focus more on school than relationships. The reasons why I loved the show was because it was easy to relate to Jenna’s problems. But when she was doing drugs, caught in a endless love triangle, and getting suspended, the connection was lost. Read more »

Fargo 1×02 ‘The Rooster Prince’: Bird watching?

This show is getting a lot of love from a lot of people ratings wise. I am not one of them. I mean … it’s OK, but nowhere near as good as people are making it out to be. Sitting pretty at 9.3 on IMDB, seriously? You’re telling me it’s somewhere between Walking Dead and Game of Thrones?!? Dafuq outta here. Anyway, as far as I am concerned the second installment was just a bland continuation of the premiere. Sure there were a couple good bits sprinkled throughout, but other than the cowardly cop doing a little window shopping, not much exciting happened.

Mindy Charlie Card

The Mindy Project 2×20 ‘An Officer and a Gynecologist’: Charlie vs. Danny

Whenever Mindy’s gotten her heart broken, she constantly tries to get back on the horse and start dating again. She’s never stopped looking for her perfect match, even though she’s been let down time and time again. But that was before Danny broke her heart, causing her to resolve to stop dating guys. Losing Danny hurt her so severely that Mindy did the unthinkable and stopped looking for love. However, the universe (or the show writers) have other plans… Batten down the hatches and get ready for a hard time, Mindy/Danny shippers, because it looks like Mindy’s got a new love interest in the form of Charlie (Tim Daly).

Archer 5×13 ‘Arrivals / Departures’: Vice No More

As a CIA-ordered airstrike of San Marcos looms, Lana prepares to deliver her baby, and all is revealed regarding the father of little Aubergine (Spelling? “Abbiejean”? “Abigene”? It’s not made clear.) and the origin of the metric ton of cocaine. It’s last call on this brave but unusual season of Archer, after the jump. Read more »

About A Boy 1×09 ‘About a Kiss’: About a successful game night

Yay! Finally. An episode I throughly enjoyed! This episode parallels a lot of the happens of the 7th episode, “About a Poker Night.” Instead of Fiona crashing Will’s poker night, Will crashes Fiona’s date at a mutual friend’s game night. Either way, it means Marcus needs a babysitter AKA Marcus has the B story/shorter scenes and the plot focuses on Will. Works for me.

The Originals 1×19 ‘An Unblinking Death’: Terrorism in the bayou

Do you know how many times I cheered at the thought that this week would be the end of Cami? Oh one too many times, but alas she’s still kicking, Klaus and Marcel confused my emotions and Hayley leaped onto my girl crush list in one single bound – although she’s been steadily climbing it since she started to kick ass.

Warehouse 13 5×02 ‘Secret Services’: Family Reunion

I was extremely excited for this episode of Warehouse 13: we’d get to find out about Claudia’s past, how dangerous her sister was, and what part Artie had in keeping the truth from Claudia. All my questions were answered, but an odd subplot kept this from being a fantastic episode of Warehouse 13.

The Antihero Trend In Film & TV

The term “antihero” gets thrown around quite a bit in fiction analysis and commentary, to the point that it’s a pretty easy word to brush over. However, before you ignore the term as a pretentious or meaningless label, you may want to take a minute to think about some of the biggest heroes of fiction from the past decade. When you really think about it, you may be surprised how far many of them are from displaying typical heroic characteristics. Read more »

Castle 6×20 ‘That 70′s Show’: Castle gets groovy

Castle returns this week from its too-long hiatus with an episode containing everything we’ve come to expect:  character moments, plot twists, zany theories, and oh, the costumes.  In this love letter to cop shows of a bygone age, the cast and crew really let their hair down (or in some cases teased it up), and the result was a show that was sheer fun from beginning to end, but not lacking at all for the heart that keeps me coming back.

Bates Motel 2×08 ‘Meltdown’: The pressure builds

At the end of last week’s episode, it was revealed that Norman’s semen had been found in Blair Watson’s corpse, which puts Sheriff Romero in an unfortunate position. As we saw last week, he’s grown somewhat partial to Norma, and now he must face the face that her son may be a murderer, and he may have sent the wrong man to prison. It’s difficult to deny that Norman doesn’t have a sense of darkness lingering around him, though, and in a tense encounter in the motel office at the beginning of the episode, it’s clear that the Sheriff is suspicious.

Silicon Valley 1×03 ‘Articles of Incorporation’: Pied Piper marches on

I have always been a big believer of this general rule of TV – three strikes, and a show’s out. If I’m not interested after watching three episodes, I’m probably not going to like the rest. Silicon Valley has been decent viewing material so far, but the first two episodes did not make me fall in love with the show. But after this first episode, I think I’m finally ready to follow the journey of Pied Piper.

Bones 9×22 ‘The Nail in the Coffin’: What goes around comes around

Just like most episodes where it deals with one of its serial killer arcs, Bones operates at breakneck speed this week. The Ghost Killer is back, and everyone is on edge trying to catch him, er, her once and for all. Brennan and Cam and Clark are at each other’s throats, Booth is being tailed by his Deputy Director, and everyone else is racing to catch up. In an unusually fast-paced episode, there are plot twists galore by the time the hour’s up.

Mad Men 7×02 ‘A Day’s Work’: “Just tell the truth”

Why is it that change is so hard to adapt to?  Is it that change involves losing a portion of one’s identity, filling that void with something foreign and potentially damaging?  Is it that change involves acknowledging that one is inching ever closer to death?  Or is it that change involves diving into the unknown, no idea what is to come?  We see in “A Day’s Work” again that preoccupation with time, the idea that so much change can occur in a day, that keeping up with it means navigating a minefield.  It’s so easy to be left behind by those around you, not only because you’re unwilling to adapt to forward motion, but also because people always want to be ahead.  They always want to be in power.

This case has Jane’s name written all over it. And it’s one that he really seemed to enjoy. Read more »
