We need to take a moment to appreciate the voiceovers which happen every single episode. They set things up perfectly.  It's fascinating to see how radical Plum has gotten on Dietland Season 1 Episode 8, but it's a testament to the Jennifer movement.  Verena was right about the group taking things too far, but Plum sees them as a group of women who are demanding justice in the world. While the message is appreciated, the group doesn't have the right to threaten women who don't list...]]>

<![CDATA[You've Come a Long Way, Baby]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Elementary/Season-6/episode-11/reviews/You-ve-Come-a-Long-Way-Baby
Sherlock wasn't around a lot this episode, which didn't seem to slow down Joan much. While Sherlock was dealing with family business, Joan solved a complex case with Marcus on Elementary Season 6 Episode 11. Yeah, Sherlock stepped in occasionally when he had a stray moment. But this was Joan's investigation to run. The victim in the case of the week was fairly obscure, a contract lawyer examining the buyout of a wholesale cigarette company by a larger cigarette distributor....]]>

<![CDATA[The Blue Wall]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Shades-of-Blue/Season-3/episode-5/reviews/The-Blue-Wall
While Harlee and Wozniak were breaking down the blue wall on Shades of Blue Season 3 Episode 5, Jennifer Lopez and Ray Liotta have been crushing every scene this season.  God, I'm going to miss this show when it's over. Someone tell me again why it has to end? As much as I want to complain, I can't because they are giving us such heart-pounding drama with every new installment.  Let's start with the Intelligence Unit pulling over Kristina.  Bennett and Phelps were ex...]]>

<![CDATA[Dirt]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Sharp-Objects/Season-1/episode-2/reviews/Dirt
What the heck is going on in Wind Gap? It was Natalie's funeral on Sharp Objects Season 1 Episode 2, and that meant the town stood together, but it also gave both Camille and Richard the perfect opportunity to do some digging into who could be a suspect.  The most interesting part of this show is the mission to find out why Adora is as cold as ice towards Camille. Even in the past, Camille's sister got all the attention, and it looks like history is repeating with Amma.  ...]]>

<![CDATA[Double Dutch]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Claws/Season-2/episode-6/reviews/Double-Dutch
Watch out, Zlata and Gregory! It took some time, but Desna went on the road and rediscovered her shitkicker self on Claws Season 2 Episode 6. Now she's in touch with her inner gangster and is in charge of the resistance. That promises to be a bumpy ride. It was only fitting that Desna was reeling at the beginning. Her boss had shot her best friend's husband. Then she found out Zlata and Gregory were playing her.  Jenn's verbal attack on Desna after Bryce slipped in...]]>

<![CDATA[Pink Slip]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Pose/Season-1/episode-7/reviews/Pink-Slip
In more ways than one, loss befalls every House in Pose Season 1 Episode 7. Something about “Pink Slip” felt different from episodes past. Maybe it was the actors, who appeared to embody their characters more comfortably and firmly. Perhaps it was the shifting focus to supporting characters like Papi, whose storyline served as a link to the broader issues of the world that Pose exists within. Or maybe it was the tangible explorations of parenthood, family, and abandonment. ...]]>

<![CDATA[The Truth About Gabriel Lockhart]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/The-Affair/Season-4/episode-5/reviews/The-Truth-About-Gabriel-Lockhart
All roads lead back to Alison.  That's what Cole realized on The Affair Season 4 Episode 5 as he continued his walkout from his marriage, and it made for one of the best episodes of this Showtime drama in a long time.  The addition of Nan in this hour helped give us a whole new perspective on Cherry and Gabriel's relationship. We learned a lot about it early in the series, but without knowing the finer details, it was more of an enigma.  What we know now is that Gab...]]>

<![CDATA[The Tombs]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Preacher/Season-3/episode-4/reviews/The-Tombs
Things are heating up on Preacher Season 3 Episode 4, as we get a look into the 9th circle of hell where the devil himself hangs. Notice the elevator buttons in hell? That's so clever. The Saint is back, and he's on a mission. After the devil torments him a bit with whips, leaving him skinless, he gives the Saint a task. Bring Hitler and Eugene back to hell. The Saint's payment? He'll get his guns back and free reign to kill Jesse. Great. Not that we didn't have eno...]]>

<![CDATA[Are We on the Same Team?]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Power/Season-5/episode-3/reviews/Are-We-on-the-Same-Team
It's a testament to how many times this show has bamboozled us over the years that I second guess everything that happens. When something seems too coincidental or too perfect, I immediately question it.  Angela runs into an attractive guy at work who wants to take her out to dinner? He's obviously out to get her. And a business-savvy woman with money to spare, changes her mind and decides to invest in a building because she was wined and dined and bedded? Well, actually, I was a ...]]>

<![CDATA[Here We Go Again]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Days-of-our-Lives/Season-53/episode-204/reviews/Here-We-Go-Again-41064
Longtime fans of Days of Our Lives sometimes joke about some of the crazy things you can expect when you watch this show. Marlena always gets kidnapped by a crazy person, people elude the cops by wearing sunglasses or baseball caps, and DNA test results never come out right the first time. Sometimes I'm not sure whether I'm laughing at or with these silly Salem tropes. But one thing I do know is that the more often a story is repeated, the less entertaining it is. There's so...]]>

<![CDATA[No Place is Home]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Criminal-Minds/Season-3/episode-10/reviews/No-Place-is-Home
Dick Booth is the MVP of the hour, unexpectedly. On Quantico Season 3 Episode 10, Devlin followed through with the threats he made at the end of Quantico Season 3 Episode 9 when he said he would go after the team's loved ones. It's sad that we didn't get a chance to catch up with Lydia, but her death set the tone of the hour and showed that Connor was not messing around. The best part of the hour is the family moments. We catch glimpses into everyone's personal lives,...]]>

<![CDATA[The Importance of Service]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Shooter/Season-3/episode-4/reviews/The-Importance-of-Service
What the hell is the God Box?  Shooter Season 3 Episode 4 had everything from shootouts, explosions, kidnappings and more. It made for an exciting hour from beginning to end. This season as excelling at balancing it out the various components, and it's evident that Shooter Season 3 has hit its stride.  But again, what the hell is the God Box and what does Gregson have to do with it?  There is never a time when Gregson isn't shady as hell. The only world Gregson isn't dup...]]>

<![CDATA[La Fuerza]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Queen-of-the-South/Season-3/episode-4/reviews/La-Fuerza
Teresa Mendoza once again proved that she's the biggest badass on Queen of the South Season 3 Episode 4, no brute strength required. After forfeiting her business in Malta to rescue a group of women who were being trafficked by Rocco de la Pena, Teresa and her crew headed back to the United States. And found yet another psychopath to deal with there.  I'm a huge fan of actor A. Martinez. He's usually wonderful at playing a villain with a heart, but Sheriff Jed Mayo was su...]]>

While Bonnie is finding her groove again, Kathleen is running off the rails, but Diana's unlikely friendship may be the key to setting her straight. All three of the ladies were off on private arcs on American Woman Season 1 Episode 5, and it allowed for them some time to grow. One of them has a discovered a terrible secret that could threaten the future of their friendship. What is it? If you didn't get a chance to read my interview with Jennifer Bartels that posted today...]]>

<![CDATA[The Bowels of Hell]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Alone/Season-5/episode-5/reviews/The-Bowels-of-Hell
On Alone Season 5 Episode 5, we still have seven contestants fighting for $500,000, and one of them doesn't make it past day 23. Each person has their own struggle in this game. Some of them have a hard time getting food, some psych themselves out by overthinking, and some just aren't prepared for the harsh Mongolian environment. We're into week three, and everybody seems to be finding their groove. Britt found his sweet spot for fishing, catching nine in two hours. The...]]>

<![CDATA[Revelations]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Buffy-the-Vampire-Slayer/Season-3/episode-7/reviews/Revelations-41058
Let's get this right up front: Buffy was addicted to Angel's love. The mere presence of basking in the passion of her toxic ex might've made her feel whole, but it nearly destroyed the life around here. Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 3 Episode 7 was her hour of intervention. She lied, she made excuses, and she risked it all to spend quality time with her brooding vampire ex. In fact, this moment is what started the breakup of the Faith/Buffy friendship. But, would you have done the...]]>

All good things must come to an end.  But first, you have to set up the exit strategy. Code Black Season 3 Episode 12 did an admirable job of that. Maybe a bit too admirable. A missing teenager, a doctor on a psych hold, a floundering surgical resident, an oedipal confrontation...that's a lot to wrap up in a mere forty-five minutes. It's all about the pacing. We all remember eighth-grade literature, rising and falling action. The penultimate episode of a season is always ab...]]>

What Buddha and the rest of the guys should have done was put a bullet in Gina's head and then done the same with Nasry. Gina continued to play her dangerous games on SIX Season 2 Episode 7, and Bear continued to show that he's the worst team leader any SEAL team has ever had in the history of the SEALs. Does he even have any brains left? It's frustrating that Bear continues to let Gina do whatever she wants. If she says jump, he asks how high. He doesn't even question anyt...]]>

Just when it seemed like the sorrow was starting to subside in New Orleans, we were thrown for a loop and lost two more key players.  The biggest shock of all on The Originals Season 5 Episode 10, is that Josh was killed off, and I have mixed emotions about it.  When the man in the bar showed some interest in him, I thought to myself, "Finally, Josh is getting a storyline that does not involve others asking for much of him." In all honesty, Steven Krueger getting promoted...]]>

<![CDATA[Disposable Heroes]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Colony/Season-3/episode-11/reviews/Disposable-Heroes
On Colony Season 3 Episode 11, Will, Katie, Broussard, and Amy are concentrating their efforts on building an army of the outliers Kynes allowed into Seattle to roam free. Little do they know it was all by design, and Kynes is actually on their side. We didn't know up until this point what Puppet Master Kynes was up to, either. Now we do. While it makes sense for Kynes to build an ark, of sorts, to repopulate mankind after the upcoming war, I wonder why he thinks Seattle wi...]]>

Prosper Denton was handing out all of the good advice and hard-earned wisdom on Queen Sugar Season 3 Episode 7. Let's just hope somebody was listening.  That the Landry's were kicking the tenants off of their leased land for some deceitful purpose certainly didn't come as a shock, but I figured that they were expanding their operation or maybe planning to sell out to some housing development.  I never expected that they were throwing black farmers off of their farms to b...]]>

Sometimes empathy can be too painful. Mara had to rescue a client who came a little too close to home on Reverie Season 1 Episode 6. Reverie has proven to be a therapeutic program. That is until the client prefers staying inside it to living his or her real life. Holly Maxwell got dealt a very crappy hand, going from being a skilled ballerina to becoming a paraplegic in a wheelchair after an accident. So now she was being cared for by her overstretched sister, Viv. ...]]>

Just like her name implied, the breaking of Eden also awakened many more in the crap world of Gilead. Before her death on The Handmaid's Tale Season 2 Episode 12, it seemed like Eden might be a catalyst for something dark. Instead, her death poured light onto the unlikeliest of places as revealed on The Handmaid's Tale Season 2 Episode 13. It's only a small corner of a much larger universe, but it is an important corner of Gilead that has come alive as a result of Eden's death. It wi...]]>

The days when things were calm no longer exist, with even more chaos descending not only in terms of plot but in terms of characters and their relationships as well.  "Sic Semper Tyrannis," written by Miranda Kwok, was a fast-paced episode that explored just how far some relationships can get divided when peace is so close for the taking. Choices are no longer given any time to be discussed, instead, the execution becomes a ticking time bomb that chips away at even the most stable relati...]]>

The ish is about to hit the fan. Smurf finally smelled freedom on Animal Kingdom Season 3 Episode 7, but she's about to go all kind of crazy when she finds out what her boys are up to. Everyone will be in a whole boatload of trouble, and number one on the list will be J. J finally gathered up his balls and pushed back at Smurf. He was pretty fed up with everything and the situation with Nicky finally pushed him over the edge. His alliance with Mia is going to spell his doom...]]>

Asshole.  That's what Liza called Don Ridley at the end of Younger Season 5 Episode 5, and she couldn't be more accurate.  And while he may have an investigative nose, so do I because I was completely right about him! *Insert happy dance here* In my Younger Season 5 Episode 4 review, I mentioned that it probably wasn't a coincidence that a broke and struggling journalist looking to make a comeback conveniently took an interest in Liza.  I don't know when exactly he f...]]>

To say things got a bit dramatic is underselling exactly how much tension and exciting changes took place in just this one episode. Honestly, this whole episode felt like a turning point for every one of the girls, whether it was professionally or in their private lives. In fact, in some cases, it even got to be both, and this is only the beginning.  During The Bold Type Season 2 Episode 6, Sutton finally came to terms with where her relationship with Richard stands, and she chose t...]]>

Note to self, do not tag extremely public places.  It looks like the group known as Jennifer has gone even more rouge on Dietland Season 1 Episode 7 when a group of college kids is blown up by a suicide bomber.  It's surprising the ones who created Jennifer didn't see something like this coming. While it started off with getting revenge on the men who have wronged women, it quickly turned into much more.  Now you have women who are taking the name Jennifer to take reven...]]>

Alison is still making all of the same mistakes, and it's becoming increasingly difficult to watch her perspective.  On The Affair Season 4 Episode 4, Alison attended the event we first heard about on The Affair Season 4 Episode 2, and it put her closer to Ben than ever before.  What I liked most about the inclusion of Ben is that he helped Alison make sense of how her mind was working overtime following Gabriel's death.  It was heartbreaking to watch Alison beat herself...]]>

What way can Desna turn now? She had the legs taken out from under her on Claws Season 2 Episode 5. Where to start? Let's start with the big, late surprise. Desna's freshly minted fiance is actually in league with Zlata, her supposedly sympathetic boss. And they're also at least co-conspirators with benefits. Ouch! All this time, I figured Gregory was with Desna to keep an eye on the Russians. Obviously, that was wrong. So he's with her to keep track of Uncle Daddy ...]]>
