Scorpion: Extinction

Season 4, Episode 1: " Extinction "

That musical number was a pure delight and the perfect way to kick off the fourth season. On Scorpion Season 4 Episode 1, Walter's dream musical number was by far the best thing about this premiere. It was hard not to smile while watching Team Scorpion do something completely wacky but also so very them. If there was a show that could pull off a random musical intro, Scorpion is...

Series Finale  Does Scott Win the War?

Teen Wolf: Series Finale Does Scott Win the War?

Season 6, Episode 20: " The Wolves Of War "

After six seasons and a hundred episodes (exactly), it all comes to this episode. "The Wolves of War" is Teen Wolf's series finale. After a very solid final season, the show delivers with one excellent, extra-sized closer. This episode is pretty light on heartfelt character moments, preferring to go almost all action, but it still manages to be satisfying, using the returning cast to their full poten...

The Principle Is All

The Deuce: The Principle Is All

Season 1, Episode 3: " The Principle Is All "

It's really hard watching the women of The Deuce get f*cked even when they're not working the streets or having sex for pleasure. We're only on The Deuce Season 1 Episode 3, and the certainty that women will always come out on the bottom end of the ladder is the only certainty we have so far. God love 'em for trying, though. One of my favorite stories at this p...

Similarly, in trying to understand what goes on inside that psychotic noggin of Troy's, I can't quite figure out what to make of "Brother's Keeper." To be honest, I'm rather disappointed.   I wanted to...
