Castle 7×08 ‘Kill Switch’: Another dramatic episode done right

I don’t know if Castle figured out what went wrong with the final episode of the last season, and the first episode of this season, but boy are they making up for it.

The Walking Dead 5×07 ‘Crossed’: Best laid plans

It’s no surprise that “Crossed” is one of the weaker episodes of the half-season.  It darts back and forth between three different stories, and while episodes that deal with these stories individually are often fantastic, The Walking Dead often operates best when it utilizes a very narrow focus (many shows operate in the same manner, with the exception of The Wire).  When The Walking Dead only hits these stories in a way that grazes the surface, it’s frustrating because the characters revert to acting like cliches or being mouthpieces for the story and its thematic message.  And while “Crossed isn’t necessarily as bad as some of the spread-out episodes last season, it’s still somewhat frustrating to watch.

The Originals 2×08 ‘The Brothers That Care Forgot’: “You think me vile?”

Was I getting a little bored with The Originals, yes…but this week sucked me back in as Klaus took control, Davina came to her senses, Cami became interesting, Rebekah got shady and the werewolves had meetings and were just there to put some sort of other storyline in the mix.

Bob’s Burgers 5×04 ‘Dawn of the Peck’: Storming the Baste-ille

I’ll be honest: I consider the past Bob’s Burgers Thanksgiving episodes to be more unreliable comedy offerings than the show’s normal fare. “An Indecent Thanksgiving Proposal” has some fun moments with Bob, and “Turkey in a Can” has Gene’s Thanksgiving carol, sure, but they feel constrained. “Dawn of the Peck” doesn’t suffer from that same issue, bringing in many of the town’s other characters, even for brief moments.

Constantine 1×05 ‘Danse Vaudou’: Jackass of all trades, master of none

Unfortunately (or fortunately, as with many things it’s all about perspective) the review of the latest episode in Constantine will be a short one. Too bad the episode wasn’t. Not only does Constantine need to find a way to distinguish itself from other shows, it needs to distinguish its own episodes from each other. Read more »

Bingeworthy: The Sopranos 3×11-3×12: Blinded

The Sopranos 3×11: “Pine Barrens”

There’s a reason that “Pine Barrens” is one of the most highly regarded Sopranos episodes in the show’s run.  Not only is it dark and existential, it features some of the funniest character work from Paulie and Christopher, two characters that could hold a scene on their own, but until now weren’t necessarily able to hold an entire episode on their own.  Of course, we remember this episode for Paulie and Christopher’s excursion through the woods, but there’s a lot more to it, and there’s a lot more to Paulie and Christopher’s story than meets the eye.

Homeland 4×09 ‘There’s Something Else Going On’: Kaboom

The biggest question every fan of Homeland is asking: Will Saul Berenson make it through this season alive? Well, I’m still not sure. He’s been through the ringer before but never quite like this. Carrie’s mission is quickly going down in flames and she’s having to salvage it at every turn while dragging the rest of the embassy down with her. The CIA is working on plugging the leak that they don’t yet know is Dennis Boyd. America is all set to fork over the prisoners and meet Haqqani’s demands much to the dismay of the Deputy Director.

Hawaii Five-0 5×08 ‘Ka Hana Malu’: Money isn’t everything

After taking a week off, this week’s Hawaii Five-0 revolves around the murder of bankrupt couple who leave behind their children and a hefty life insurance policy. Between the kids, friends, lawyer and former clients everyone has a motive: money. Meanwhile Aunt Deb comes back to the island for the first time since her cancer diagnosis with some rather exciting news that leads Steve on a new investigation. This episode has everything we love from the chases and gunfights to the deeper family moments with all the McDanno banter in between. Five-0 is on the case in “Ka Hana Malu.”

Elementary 3×04, “Bella”: I think, therefore I am a suspect

What does it mean to be human?  Is consciousness and self-awareness the same thing?  Does an emotionless act make us inhumane?  And most importantly, where’s the beef?  Questions like these are the lofty fodder we find ourselves grappling with this week in what is one of Elementary’s most esoteric and thought-provoking episodes, wherein we dig for the truths behind the very essence of human nature.  Our detectives hunt for a murderer that might be an artificial intelligence who really just wants someone to stimulate its pleasure cortex (and don’t we all?), while Kitty does very little of import to justify her continued existence within the context of this show.  But none of that really matters, because CLYDE RETURNS!!!!!

Gracepoint 1×08 ’1.8′: More suspects, more problems

With only two more episodes left, it’s not surprising that Gracepoint is really kicking it into high gear.  Det. Carver’s medical issues are getting much worse and it’s starting to affect his job performance. Det. Miller’s son Tom is still missing. The Solano’s are still deeply grieving Danny but there is a little hope on the horizon. More suspicious behaviors are being brought to light for several of the townspeople. We open on a dark and foggy forest. Read more »

Scandal 4×09 ‘Where the Sun Dont Shine’: Fall finale fiasco

Damn you Shonda Rhimes.

Between the twists on Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder I need two apples on Thursday to keep the doctor away. So I really don’t know where to start because this episode went all over the place. The Winslow Scandal, the Rowan Scandal and the West Angola Scandal have all merged into a giant kerfuffle of information that had both my heart and head hurting. Be warned that the train of thought will go all over the place and nothing will seem coherent. Enjoy! Let’s get to it, onto “Where the Sun Don’t Shine!”

Bones 10×08 ‘The Puzzler in the Pit’: Crosswords and crystals and babies

Just when you think Bones has finally started to heal and move on from Sweets’ death, his absence is felt all over the place when Daisy goes into labor with his son. There’s some sort of case about the seedy underbelly of crossword puzzles (what?), but nobody really cares, because it’s all about welcoming the newest member of the Jeffersonian to the fold with open arms and stuffed animals.

Jane the Virgin 1×06 ‘Chapter Six’: Where do we go from here?

The story of Jane Villanueva (Gina Rodrigeuz) has been a hectic (yet very romantic) one so far, and it’s only getting amplified by the episode… After this week we can be truly stuck on who to back in terms of the love triangle, but the writers seem very adamant on what team they are on. Who are you backing?

Red Band Society 1×8 ‘Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car’: The doctors

There’s something about a doctor strumming a guitar in a hospital. It doesn’t inspire confidence. It’s more likely to provoke eye-rolling. But don’t give up on the singing doc just yet. He might be onto something. Read more »

POI 4x08.1

Person of Interest 4×08 ‘Point of Origin’: Angler found a match

Despite the cliffhanger of last week’s ‘Honor Among Thieves‘, Person of Interest is all about Reese as he follows the number of a cadet at the police academy. Meanwhile Dominic is setting up his plan to topple Elias, and Samaritan is hot on Shaw’s tail with the help of Martine. This episode takes every storyline from this season and flips them on their heads with two jaw-dropping cliffhangers that are NOT to be missed. No more introduction, let’s jump into “Point of Origin.”

The Big Bang Theory 8×10 ‘The Champagne Reflection’: Who framed Roger Abbot?

It felt like this week’s The Big Bang Theory was filler from the start, but then Howard had to drop a bomb and make my heart burst. While he and the guys were figuring out some facet of life, Penny was setting Bernadette straight and Sheldon was saying goodbye to “Fun with Flags.”
