About Time

The Resident: About Time

Season 2, Episode 4: " About Time "

Has Marshall won you guys over yet?  If you weren't a fan of Conrad's dad up until this point, then please tell me after The Resident Season 2 Episode 4 you're willing to cut the guy some slack. Marshall's verbal smackdown in that elevator was so damn satisfying and will go down as one of the best moments in the series' history.  Conrad lives to see another day of practicing ...

Tough Titmouse

The Good Doctor: Tough Titmouse

Season 2, Episode 4: " Tough Titmouse "

Will there ever be an hour of The Good Doctor that doesn't reduce you to tears? The Good Doctor Season 2 Episode 4 delivered new medical cases, each of which tugged on the heartstrings, and those were only the cases of the week.  Hell, the show delved deeper than ever into the personal lives of the characters, and there was not one wasted moment.  Let's start ...

Unclaimed Baggage

Manifest: Unclaimed Baggage

Season 1, Episode 4: " Unclaimed Baggage "

Did anybody else get some serious Doctor Who vibes from Manifest Season 1 Episode 4? Okay, so the similarities were limited to the visions of the stone woman and Who's weeping angels, but those things are creepy.  We may have met a new "castaway," but we didn't learn anything more about the disappearance. What caused it and where the plane was are still the questions we're dyin...

Awful People

9-1-1: Awful People

Season 2, Episode 5: " Awful People "

Imagine being in excruciating pain or unimaginable danger, calling 911 and then hearing the line go dead.  Every single day there are emergencies all over the country, and some of those emergencies are life or death, and the dispatcher on the other end of the line is literally helping saves lives. To think anyone in that job could be so callous is frightening.  But that's what...

Six Paintings, One Frame

Magnum P.I.: Six Paintings, One Frame

Season 1, Episode 4: " Six Paintings, One Frame "

Magnum P.I. just keeps getting better and better! Magnum does his best James Bond impression on Magnum P.I. Season 1 Episode 4, but his little stunt to test an art collector's security system makes him a prime suspect when the art is stolen, and the collector turns up dead! We all know Magnum isn't a murderer or a thief, but the circumstances sure did make him seem suspect, ...

Mr. Smiley & The Floating Man

The Haunting of Hill House: Mr. Smiley & The Floating Man

Season 1, Episode 3: " Touch "

It's a wonder these children ever slept growing up.   With bent-kneck ladies, mysterious knocking and larger than life floating men roaming the halls, I don't know how anyone was ever able to close their eyes. For Luke and Nell, they at least had one another to feel less alone. But the older children were not as lucky.  The Haunting of Hill House Season 1 Episode 3 and The Ha...

Amour Fou

You: Amour Fou

Season 1, Episode 6: " Amour Fou "

Well, you know what they say? If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.  It took longer than Joe anticipated, but he finally rid the world (and Beck) of Peach Salinger on YOU Season 1 Episode 6.  Rest in some sapphic paradise, Peaches. You will be missed. It's difficult to imagine what the series will be like in Peach's absence. Shay Mitchell was such a ...

The Chaos Game

Madam Secretary: The Chaos Game

Season 5, Episode 2: " The Chaos Game "

For once, a convoluted backstory that made sense and was interesting.  Russian's interference in both Polish politics and American hate groups grounded Madam Secretary Season 5 Episode 2. It also set up the first major arc for the season.  This won't be the first time that Russia has been cast as the big bad of a season, but that's not surprising considering th...

The Ghost Monument

Doctor Who: The Ghost Monument

Season 11, Episode 2: " The Ghost Monument "

The Doctor has always been a character prone to running. A lot of running. And considering the situations he has historically gotten into, it's usually a good plan of action. Well, Doctor Who Season 11 Episode 2 definitely gets the cardio in along with a heap of hiking, a bit of boating, and a scoop of Doctor-approved pacifism. Related:...

Air Drop

The Last Ship: Air Drop

Season 5, Episode 6: " Air Drop "

This was one of those transitional episodes, where we checked in on everyone, but not a lot resulted from that. After an episode in drydock, the Nathan James got back in the fight on The Last Ship Season 5 Episode 6. Well, it tried to, anyway. But somehow it lost track on an Iowa-class warship. I'm still not sure how, but I guess that's a story for another episode.

Face It, You're Gorgeous

Shameless: Face It, You're Gorgeous

Season 9, Episode 6: " Face It, You're Gorgeous "

It's never easy to say goodbye to an original character, and while Ian's storylines have a knack for fizzling out, Shameless Season 9 Episode 6 featured the most beautiful conclusion.  As he walked through the prison, it was evident he was going to be in for a tough time. I completely lost it when Mickey was revealed to be his cellmate. Noel Fisher's return was kept well under wraps. 

The Usual Suspects

The Walking Dead: The Usual Suspects

Season 9, Episode 2: " The Bridge "

It's all fun and games until someone loses an arm. On The Walking Dead Season 9 episode 2, Alexandria, the Kingdom, Hilltop, and the Saviors joined forces to construct the bridge that will open up a trade route between the communities. However, the lingering animosity between the Saviors and the rest of the groups put the entire project in severe jeopardy. And the tension ran so ...

Heavenly Taco Truck

God Friended Me: Heavenly Taco Truck

Season 1, Episode 3: " Heavenly Taco Truck "

The God account works in mysterious ways, and it's becoming harder to ignore the miracles that are happening as a result.  You knew the story on God Friended Me Season 1 Episode 3 was going to be uplifting and emotional because only good things happen at taco trucks. Granted, Miles got his wallet stolen while grabbing tacos, but still, there was a happy end in sight.  ...

Los Angeles Season 10 Episode 3 Review

NCIS: Los Angeles: Los Angeles Season 10 Episode 3 Review

Season 10, Episode 3: " The Prince "

Who needs an administrator? As he has in the past when leadership was missing, Callen took the lead on NCIS: Los Angeles Season 10 Episode 3. That worked out well, even with Joelle popping back up from the dead. This episode almost made Joelle into a sympathetic figure. And that was a seemingly impossible task, after the way she betrayed Callen. I mea...

American Alien

Supergirl: American Alien

Season 4, Episode 1: " American Alien "

For the first time in her life, Supergirl felt like she had it all under control ... or so she thought. Supergirl spent the summer thwarting crime all over the world, from National City to Madrid to Kaznia as witnessed on Supergirl Season 4 Episode 1. Why she was taking care of the whole world when just a few months earlier (our timeline) she could barely manage National City by...
