It's hard to imagine that there is another person just like Dynasty's Blake Carrington, but in this week's episode we learned that he is a chip off the old block. Blake's father, Thomas drops by for the holidays to drop off Stephen, who he found in New York City partying and embarrassing the family!It is apparent that Blake learned how to play hardball from his father, who demands Blake fire Stephen. When Blake refuses, Thomas threatens to call the board and have Blake fired too. After all, it w...]]>

<![CDATA[Winter Finale Archie and Betty Unite to Take Down the Black Hood]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Riverdale-US/Season-2/episode-9/reviews/Winter-Finale-Archie-and-Betty-Unite-to-Take-Down-the-Black-Hood
Riverdale season 2 is not even halfway done. Yet there's no point telling that fact to the show's winter finale, "Silent Night, Deadly Night." In the winter finale, Riverdale manages to tackle most, but not all, of its season 2 plotlines and attempt to tie them altogether (and even conclude a couple) into one action-packed hour. There might still be a lot of Riverdale season 2 to go but it's hard to imagine a more satisfying season finale than "Silent Night, Deadly Night" even if it's little jus...]]>

<![CDATA[Tragedy Strikes the Kirkman Family]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Designated-Survivor/Season-2/episode-10/reviews/Tragedy-Strikes-the-Kirkman-Family
Ready for one action-packed winter finale episode of Designated Survivor? I sure am! One plot twist after another, Tom Kirkman and crew have dodged bullets, ducked from bad press, drowned in conspiracies and even had time in between for some romance. Something tells me we are in for quite a shocker as the First Lady's involuntary involvement with Eric Little comes to a head. Keep tissues handy; we're going in!

Thanks for that incredibly cryptic message, Seer.  Lagertha learned on Vikings Season 5 Episode 4 that she will indeed see her son again someday, but the circumstances surrounding the reunion may be less than ideal.  What does the message mean? Is Lagertha on borrowed time? Is she going to die this season?  Lagertha: Will I ever see my son again?Seer: Yes, you will see him again, but in terrible circumstances. Lagertha: What do you mean?Seer: The consequences of R...]]>

Empire, is that you?! On Empire Season 4 Episode 9 the Lyons were done being pushed around by the Dubois family and went on a revenge mission that was masterfully executed.  The family putting on the show at the Captain's Ball was everything. Cookie was on tap to present and send zingers Diana's way throughout.  If you watch Empire online, you know Diana stuck around too long as the villain, and that's part of the reason why the show has struggled to give us cohere...]]>

<![CDATA[Chapter Twenty-Two]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Riverdale-US/Season-2/episode-9/reviews/Chapter-Twenty-Two-39766
Say goodbye to The Black Hood mystery; he's no longer a concern. The identity of the killer was finally revealed on Riverdale Season 2 Episode 9. After weeks of digging deeper into the killer's past, we got down to the truth. And a death that freed the town of its serial killer problem. However, was the reveal worth the payoff? The reveal of The Black Hood didn't have the same power as the Jason Blossom climax on Riverdale Season 1 Episode 12. In fact, this was quite lackluster....]]>

Why not start with the potential apocalypse? A piece of Flynn's past threatened to destroy the future on The Librarians Season 4 Episode 1. First off, it appears a seismic shift is coming, as Flynn and Eve were preparing for their upcoming tethering ceremony. Of course, it may never happen because they couldn't seem to perform the ceremony to Jenkins' satisfaction. This tethering ceremony sure looks like a wedding. The Librarian and his Guardian, in this case, Flynn and Eve...]]>

They killed Santa.  Chicago Med Season 3 Episode 4 put a damper on the holiday spirit with that move. No amount of misappropriated St. Paddy's Day decorations are going to get the yule log blazing bright after Santa kicks the bucket.  There weren't any really interesting cases to cheer us up either. Far and away the best case was Connor's. Fecal matter in the pleural cavity? Color me intrigued. The props department is really rocking it this season, and we've barely starte...]]>

After a brief hiatus, everyone's favorite series about Navy cops returned with NCIS Season 15 Episode 10, just in time for Christmas! And in the spirit of Christmas, they gave us a super-heartwarming reunion between an estranged father and son! I guess it was just bad luck to be that poor, unfortunate corporal blown up in the Humvee. Maybe he was wearing a red shirt under his uniform. At least he wasn't entirely forgotten afterward. Attentive viewers may have guessed that the tr...]]>

How come Riggs never gets a happy ending? The holidays were a mess for Riggs and Murtaugh on Lethal Weapon Season 2 Episode 10 but while the Murtaughs' Christmas ended up being quite merry, Riggs' holiday ended with a horrible twist. Riggs deserved better. I was expecting "Wreck the Halls" to end with Molly and Riggs sharing a kiss under the mistletoe. It would have been the perfect ending to an installment that had more action and intensity than I could handle. But instea...]]>

Dr. Bull gets an unusual request from a young client, but things take an unexpected turn when they wind up in court together. In the season 2 winter finale, Bull paints the doctor in a new light when he gets awarded guardianship of a precocious 9-year-old. "Home for the Holidays" gives us a look at Bull's sentimental side, and I'll admit, it's kind of endearing.The CrimeWhile there aren't any actual laws being broken, there are some definitely questionable parental decisions being made.

Last time on NCIS, Delilah and McGee finally welcomed their twins and named the boy Johnny and the girl Morgan. I love the names, but I was hoping that there would be a nod to Gibbs somehow when the monikers were revealed. The winter finale of NCIS season 15, "Double Down," has Torres and Jack tasked with protecting a senator on his journey back from Afghanistan. That doesn't sound like a recipe for holiday cheer.A Call from Back HomeJack and Torres are in Afghanistan to protect Senator John Phi...]]>

From the first time Sharon mentioned Bonnie referred to Vanessa as "Dallas SA" on Major Crimes Season 6 Episode 7, I knew SA stood for sexual assault. I thought it was obvious since Vanessa was a sexual assault victim. I was proud of myself when the Major Crimes team came to the same conclusion, but really, what took them so long? Vanessa's sexual assault created another layer to this case. Hopefully, her assailant -- who presumably is also the murderer -- will turn out to ...]]>

There's nothing wrong with tying up a few hanging storylines before the holiday hiatus. Foremost among these were the questions lingering from the Clearwater investigation on NCIS: New Orleans Season 4 Episode 10. I obviously missed some crucial details, because I thought that investigation was all wrapped up. But apparently not. The big mystery remaining was the identity of ex-Mayor Hamilton's partner. Hamilton wasn't just the high-profile frontman for the proposed Nav...]]>

If we learned anything from Bull Season 2 Episode 10, it was that Dr. Jason Bull is not comfortable with children.  Did you see how high he jumped when he first saw that little girl sitting in his office? I know that he wasn't expecting anyone to be there, but the fact that it was a child really appeared to throw him off his game.  And then there was his not so nice Bull quote... Marissa, is it bring your brat to work day? One of those things wandered in here. Bull ...]]>

The Voice has whittled the competition down to eight semifinalists, and it's getting harder and harder to imagine who will go home every week. The singers will perform for the coaches and fans, like usual, but they also must team up for competitive duets. America has its work cut out for it in the upcoming eliminations, since both the single performances and the duets are up for eliminations.

Time is running out for everyone on The Gifted in this episode, titled "eXploited." The mutant underground starts off divided on how to handle the current situation, as Lorna fears that Trask Industries could have access to all information regarding the mutant underground HQ.

After Lauren, Andy, and the others got taken, Mama and Papa Strucker decided to take action on their own. But they didn't do it without the help of one incredibly manipulative mutant who took center stage on The Gifted Season 1 Episode 10. "eXploited" worked on so many levels while at the same time it didn't. Let's start with everything that did work, particularly Jace Turner. I wasn't particularly shocked by Jace starting to show some humanity again. Because if he did...]]>

This episode is an excellent reminder as to why Team Scorpion has wormed their way into my heart. On Scorpion Season 4 Episode 11, Cabe and Sly were on trial, and the rest of the team was going insane waiting helplessly for the verdict to be read. We've never really seen the team helpless and vulnerable before. Typically, the team will hit a roadblock, and they'll be able to work their way around it. It's a temporary problem, not a permanent one. The only time we've come cl...]]>

Trixie can make anyone look adorable, can't she? Charlotte and Trixie sporting the same hairstyle on Lucifer Season 3 Episode 10 was one of the many useless, but necessary plot points needed to drag us to the closing minutes to kill time. That's not to say some of the more agonizing stalls weren't a lot of fun. They were, and they always are when Lucifer and friends are involved. Just like I have to talk my way through any possible jumping off point for RSS feed coverage,...]]>

'Tis the season for peace on earth, goodwill towards men, and taking down dirty Senators. The McCord's holiday party went off without a hitch on Madam Secretary Season 4 Episode 9, thanks entirely to Stevie. She might be over privileged and the beneficiary of some insane nepotism, but that girl will take on any task.  Part of my bristled at the outrageousness of this plot point -- you simply cannot plan a party of that caliber in DC on such short notice.

In the season 3 finale of Outlander, titled "Eye of the Storm," John Grey comes to Jamie's rescue, Claire searches for Ian, and Geillis learns about Brianna and plans to travel to the future to fulfill the prophecy. It's the big finish to an action-packed season. And it starts with Claire heading to Rose Hill in search of Ian.

Kensi ends up pretty bruised in this episode of NCIS: Los Angeles. But just because she loses one fight doesn't mean she doesn't come out the victor in the end -- and she saves a life in the process. Elsewhere in "Forasteira," Deeks takes the day off from NCIS business for "LAPD sensitivity training" -- at least that's the cover story Kensi gives. His mother's boyfriend is mugged and turns to him for help recovering his belongings, but will Deeks want to see what's on his computer or sketchpad?A...]]>

Those of you who just watched the series premiere of the new Starz series Counterpart have merely dipped your toes into the water of the thrilling series. It's true, Counterpart Season 1 Episode 1, a sweet preview of what's to come ahead of the official January 21st premiere, offers an intriguing peek into the worlds inhabited by the Howard Silks.

Bridgette is not a fan of sitting around and waiting for good things to come to her.  On SMILF Season 1 Episode 6, she tried to make her mark on the world by trying out for the WNBA, and it made her change her perspective on a lot of things.  Bridgette may be impulsive as hell, but when she sticks her mind to something, she wants to see it through to completion, and that's a good character trait.  What irked me about the whole plot was that Tutu and Ally looked down on h...]]>

Let's go to the case of the week first.
