The Overnight

The Rookie: The Overnight

Season 2, Episode 16: " The Overnight "

Fictional TV stepped into reality TV as The Rookie Season 2 Episode 16 went meta and shoved Officer Lucy Chen onto the American Idol audition stage. For those who were unaware, actress Melissa O'Neil won the third season of Canadian Idol, so I'm fairly certain that was actually her belting out that song.  I'm generally not the biggest fan of these type of crossovers but ...

The Tower

The Walking Dead: The Tower

Season 10, Episode 15: " The Tower "

That was intense.  The Walking Dead Season 10 Episode 15 flawlessly introduced us to Princess and laid the groundwork for the battle to come.  In short, "The Tower" was a successful way to up the ante and to leave fans wanting more until The Walking Dead Season 10 Episode 16 hits the air.  It's a shame we have to wait, but given the events going on in the wor...

Good Girls: Nana

Season 3, Episode 8: " Nana "

Did anyone ask for more Boomer? The answer is no. No one was asking for more Boomer, but he was back on Good Girls Season 3 Episode 8, and what followed was nothing short of gross, unintentionally hilarious, and a little bit sad. There’s a lot of unsavory characters in the Good Girls universe, but Boomer has always been one of the absolute worst. He’s just flat out a bad per...

Heart of a Writer

When Calls the Heart: Heart of a Writer

Season 7, Episode 7: " Heart of a Writer "

If Elizabeth was confused about her love life (or lack thereof) before When Calls the Heart Season 7 Episode 7, she'll be more confused than ever afterward. In other romantic news, Jesse and Clara realized that getting married even while deeply in love takes some adjustment. And Rosemary and Lee discovered parenting longer than a few hours is a lot different than short visits wi...

Snatch Game

RuPaul's Drag Race: Snatch Game

Season 12, Episode 6: " Snatch Game "

Snatch Game is the great equalizer of the competition. You can't hide behind small acting roles or stunning ensembles; you have to shine on your own. On RuPaul's Drag Race Season 12 Episode 6, the queens made their big attempt to win the iconic Maxi Challenge! Some landed heavy-hitter jokes that brought the funny, others hit a few missteps, while others flat-lined completely. The...

End of a Tragic Chapter

Days of our Lives: End of a Tragic Chapter

Season 55, Episode 137: " Friday April 3, 2020 "

It looks like some truly annoying plots are coming to an end. Stevano is in the hospital and Rolf might be forced to remove his microchip after he finishes removing Marlena's, while Nicole finally uncovered the truth about the baby switch. And in between, Days of Our Lives during the week of 3-30-20 managed to pull off a silly April Fools Day episode--but was that a needed distra...

Newton Purcell

The Blacklist: Newton Purcell

Season 7, Episode 13: " Newton Purcell "

It's always fun when Red breaks out one of his secret weapons. After Glen screwed up, Raymond had little choice but to let the little guy attempt to correct his mistake on The Blacklist Season 7 Episode 13. And you'll never listen to "Eye of the Tiger" the same way again. This was, really, kind of, a turn of events. Usually, Red is coming to Glen for ...

The Puzzle Palace

Blue Bloods: The Puzzle Palace

Season 10, Episode 17: " The Puzzle Palace "

The rank-and-file might not realize it, but Frank is the perfect boss. On Blue Bloods Season 10 Episode 17, the rank-and-file was disgruntled after Frank suspended an officer for using excessive force Frank could have told him where they could go with that complaint, but instead, he looked into what he could be doing better and then approached them to talk. What else could the u...

Is the Next Surgery on the House?

Dynasty: Is the Next Surgery on the House?

Season 3, Episode 16: " Is the Next Surgery on the House? "

If you thought Fallon was being crazy on Dynasty Season 3 Episode 16, well, she was, but she wasn't working alone.  Who else was surprised that Fallon and Liam were in cahoots for operation "frame Heidi and keep Connor?" Like most men who are ambushed by their baby momma and find out they have a child, Liam wanted a chance to get to know his son.  Heidi blew i...

Apple TV's New Series is Intriguing, Empowering, and Fun

Home Before Dark: Apple TV's New Series is Intriguing, Empowering, and Fun

Season 1, Episode 1: " Magic Hour "

Hilde Lisko is a budding journalist and a fourth-grader and, thanks to the incredible talent of Brooklyn Prince (The Florida Project), both are completely believable. As we find out early in Home Before Dark Season 1 Episode 1, Hilde is a force to be reckoned with. The fact that this force comes in the package of a nine-year-old girl makes Home Before Dark equal measures intriguing, empower...

Back in the New York Groove

The Real Housewives of New York City: Back in the New York Groove

Season 12, Episode 1: " Back in the NY Groove "

The Real Housewives of New York City are back, and while they've lost a cast member, they've gained another who may well emerge as one of the best in the history of the franchise.  It wouldn't be The Real Housewives without some shade being thrown, but I didn't expect much of the early shade to be hurled at Bethenny Frankel, who was no longer on the show.  Indeed, The Real Hou...

No Days Off

Station 19: No Days Off

Season 3, Episode 11: " No Day Off "

Who knew a day off could still be so crazy? Instead of getting to enjoy some quality downtime, most of our favorite characters found themselves in uncomfortable situations, to say the least. It was an engaging hour, as Station 19 Season 3 Episode 11 once again proved this series is worth a second viewing. Even though there was barely any firefighting, Station 1...

We're Not Getting Away With It

How To Get Away With Murder: We're Not Getting Away With It

Season 6, Episode 10: " We're Not Getting Away With It "

Could time finally be running out for Annalise Keating? It sure looks like the final episodes of this final season are going to swirl around the fall of Annalise, a figure who at times has seemed like she’s untouchable. How to Get Away with Murder Season 6 Episode 10 ended with her arrest, and we already know there’s a funeral soon. But we’re seasoned vets here, and we kn...
