Convincing an arms dealer to negotiate a temporary peace treaty between two of his clients is nothing getting your kids into college. Elizabeth took multitasking to a whole new level on Madam Secretary Season 3 Episode 19 as she managed to broker a deal to save thousand from starvation and still "be" with the family for the reveal of Ali's big news. While the nitty-gritty of implementing a cease fire through back channels and arranging aid for thousands of people was interesti...]]>

<![CDATA[3.07]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/American-Crime/Season-3/episode-7/reviews/3-07
American Crime keeps getting more intense as the season progresses. On American Crime Season 3 Episode 6, Shae was brutally murdered.  And on American Crime Season 3 Episode 7, Gabriella was treated inhumanely after being arrested while Jeanette seemed to have run out of options in her quest to live independently after Raelyn was also arrested. I'm not sure which storyline is the most disturbing. I'll go with Shae's murder, which was brilliantly understated in "3.07." ...]]>

As the Black Fairy gets ready for the final battle on Once Upon a Time, Regina gets distracted as Zelena heads down to the tunnels to stop the Black Fairy by herself in this episode, titled "Where Bluebirds Fly." Meanwhile, Snow uses wedding planning as a distraction to the trouble that lies ahead for Storybrooke. Eventually, Zelena uses an object from her past to right a wrong in present day.You've Got a FriendBack in the day in Oz, a young Zelena comes across a woodcutter, Stanum, on the yello...]]>

This NCIS: Los Angeles episode could have been titled "We're Going to Make You Miss Granger Even More Than You Already Do." While "Battle Scars" may begin with the kidnapping of a Veterans Affairs administrator, that guy is such a jerk that it's worth it for the perkiest FBI agent to show up a second time in the episode, and it's easy to forget him once Hetty's former Vietnam War colleagues (including Chegwidden) show up.That's when we get a brief update on Granger -- no one's heard from him -- ...]]>

In this episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac, titled "Mother Knows Best," Charisse comes face to face with her soon-to-be ex-husband at her daughter's sweet 16, and Robyn finds comfort in her parents while reevaluating her relationship with Juan.

The whole York family was under lock and key on The White Princess Season 1 Episode 2. Elizabeth was tricked into captivity at the palace, Lizzie can't go out to play because she's pregnant and medieval attitudes about her condition are scary close to those of present day gynoticians, and poor, simple Teddy is a threat. Even Cecily, who thinks she's a gatekeeper, is captive. She may think they're under quarantine from the plague, but she wouldn't be allowed anywhere even if half of En...]]>

Zelena finally chose a side that didn't leave the formerly wicked witch all alone on Once Upon a Time Season 6 Episode 18 "Where Bluebirds Fly." After several false starts and broken promises, Zelena made the ultimate sacrifice to prove she belonged on Team Hero. She gave up her magic to save the day. This was such a huge moment for her. Because as far as Zelena was concerned, her magic was the only thing that made her special. She clung to the power like a security blanke...]]>

We're straddling the edge of sanity with "Don't Be Ridiculous," and the title taunts us.  As we see on The Leftovers Season 3 Episode 2, the last three years have brought the Garveys and nearly everyone else to their knees. If they were coping well before, what we see on the surface now could mean anything. Years of processing the loss of 2% of the population affected everyone differently. Some people are harder, some softer, some hard on the outside with a soft coating, gooey on t...]]>

Just what NCIS: Los Angeles Season 8 needed. It was an all-star caper on NCIS: Los Angeles Season 8 Episode 21. I say all-star because it brought Hetty's Vietnam War-era band back together. Most importantly, this meant a return of A.J. Chegwidden, of JAG, fame, last seen in NCIS: Los Angeles Season 8 Episode 15. He was winningly accompanied by another retired admiral, Sterling Bridges, and watching the two of them bicker was like watching future Sam and Callen. Especia...]]>

It's all about betrayal on The Arrangement Season 1 Episode 8, as Megan and Kyle learn that perhaps the only people they can trust are each other.  After the break-in, Kyle could have gone to Terence as he did with any other emergency. This time, though, he decided to handle things himself and put in a new security system without Terence's help or approval. It was a big step for Kyle and the first step to him breaking free of the hold the Institute and Terence has on him. ...]]>

How far would you go to save your family? That was the question at the crux of Shades of Blue Season 2 Episode 8.  And with bullets flying and Wozniak looking for bombs under his car, the stress and paranoia were at an all-time high. Then again, is it being paranoid if someone is really after you? The shooting at the television studio was barely a blip on the screen. Julia literally dodged the bullet and the hit woman wound up dead thanks to Harlee.  Was this simply a...]]>

Not one, not two, but THREE huge plot twists this week! Let's get to it. On Into the Badlands Season 2 Episode 6, the trifecta of awesomeness included a tragic death, a secret revealed, and a massive betrayal. For me, the reveal of Bajie as a former Abbot was mind blowing. True, there were clues sprinkled in throughout the season: he is a kick ass fighter, and clearly has a strong moral code deep down, but I NEVER in a million years thought he was Abbot material.  I s...]]>

In Peter Stone's world, everything is simple and straightforward. For him, all good people have to do is cooperate with investigations and testify against criminals and the world will be a safer place. Except, as he learned the hard way on  Chicago Justice Season 1 Episode 10, it doesn't always work that way. He risked the life of one young child to try to get justice for another and may have weakened Constitutional protections to shut down the cell phone accounts of suspected ga...]]>

The Doctor took Bill on her first official adventure as a companion, and naturally they encountered a life-threatening situation in Doctor Who Season 10 Episode 2. At first, "Smile" bore some superficial resemblance to a Seventh Doctor serial called "The Happiness Patrol," which saw a world on which happiness was the law (enforced, naturally, in a fascist manner). Then there was the Big Twist, which actually proved both strangely sad and simultaneously face-palm worthy (a truly impres...]]>

Death is all around. On The Son Season 1 Episode 4 Pete loses another part of himself when he and Eli put together a posse to ambush a group of seditionists. You have to wonder how Pete really feels about being a McCullough. He seems more burdened by the fact of his heritage than anything else. Even if it's unasked, he does what he thinks his father wants him to do. He's a broken spirit. When Sally asked him not to go with the posse, he told her he had no choice. He's ...]]>

<![CDATA[Trojan Horse]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Scandal/Season-6/episode-11/reviews/Trojan-Horse-38080
Was that the best episode of Scandal, like, ever? On Scandal Season 6 Episode 11, Mellie got her way and became the President of the United States, a mere few scenes after Liz had her skull cracked by Samantha.  It was great. I wish I could say I was shocked by Liz's death, but the revelation that she was working with PEUS sealed her fate. I did not expect her to go in the first scene with PEUS, but I was wondering what Samantha was doing behind her.  Liz proved earlier o...]]>

Just when Scandal was getting a little silly in season 6, "Trojan Horse" comes back swinging; literally. Huck's rescue and the "what if" episodes kind of threw viewers off track, but now we know who wins the White House. But we are also fearing for some of our beloved characters as the mystery group seems to be more in charge and controlling that ever.Fighting BackIt's four days before the Electoral College is set to vote on the next president, Mellie or Cyrus.

For reasons unknown The Amazing Race is offering up a two hour double installment very early in the season. There's not a lot of connective tissue between the two hours which are very much their own episodes, unless you count some extreme bickering. With a few major exceptions the stranger teams have gotten along pretty well in this gimmicky season of The Amazing Race. This is all breaks down now as there is some widespread meltdown and drama across all the teams. The "getting to know you" honey...]]>

Mr. Kaplan’s back, and she’s not pulling any punches. Ultimately, the fact that she’s been after Red wasn’t a surprise, but that didn’t make the buildup or the reveal any less exciting. At the same time, it was a smart move to put The Blacklist Season 4 Episode 16 and The Blacklist Season 4 Episode 17 back to back rather than waiting a week in between. Because while the second part of the two-hour event filled in a lot of holes and revealed Kate’s past, the prese...]]>

Q once again made everything worse for everyone, and possibly destroyed magic forever on The Magicians Season 2 Episode 13 "We Have Brought You Little Cakes."

Of course, the pair planned on rescuing Rosalee's family and heading back north.  Unfortunately, the trip took a totally expected turn for the absolute worst. First, we need to talk about Noahlee.

And it was the greatest thing ever.

Nick Torres took the spotlight in NCIS Season 14 Episode 21, in which a past undercover operation of his came back to haunt him in a big way. The plot shed some light on his character, which was welcome, though the development felt somewhat cheapened by Torres's less-than-brilliant behavior and choices from start to end. The part that irked me the most (Yes, I just used the word "irked.") was when Torres went all the way to Vance's office to whine about being benched. Sure, ...]]>
