Identity, Pt.1

The Orville: Identity, Pt.1

Season 2, Episode 8: " Identity (1) "

Honestly, none of us should be surprised by The Orville Season 2 Episode 8's reveal. It was made abundantly clear again and again (sometimes to humorous effect) that Isaac was devoid of emotion and without sentimentality. But we wouldn't listen and insisted on projecting humanity onto him like Mr. Potato Head accessories. He was there to observe humans and devel...

We're Gonna Need a Spotlight

Legacies: We're Gonna Need a Spotlight

Season 1, Episode 11: " We're Gonna Need a Spotlight "

With mind-controlling slugs, musical numbers, fun moments, unicorns, shocking twists, and some relationship drama, Legacies Season 1 Episode 11 will go down as one of my favorite episodes to date.  I expected there to be more to that beautiful unicorn showing up at the school than Dorian, Alaric, and Hope letting the legendary creature get a free pass because of how cute it is.  ...

The Rosary

A Million Little Things: The Rosary

Season 1, Episode 16: " The Rosary "

I know this is a soapy drama, and it was so much soap, and drama, and tears, and heartwarming moments.  However, the one thing that perplexed me on A Million Little Things Season 1 Episode 16 was how Sophie could let Mrs. Nelson/Emma/Barbara Morgan into the Dixon home, the woman could disappear after seeing Gary, and no one followed up on that.  Wouldn't a million red flags g...

Make Me the Enemy

How To Get Away With Murder: Make Me the Enemy

Season 5, Episode 14: " Make Me the Enemy "

So, what you're telling me is, we didn't leave this Castillo drama in How To Get Away With Murder Season 4?  It was obvious there was going to be some misdirection and the path to Emmett the killer would have some holes in it, but I must say I am surprised that we're bringing in another Castillo bad guy.  So yes, spoiler alert, if you weren't able to catch the last few frames o...

Ace Chemicals

Gotham: Ace Chemicals

Season 5, Episode 7: " Ace Chemicals "

Absolute insanity. Jeremiah solidified his connection with Bruce on Gotham Season 5 Episode 7 in one of the series' most insanely dark and craziest episodes to date. As the series winds down, each new episode outdoes the last by miles, and "Ace Chemicals" was no exception. We all knew it was going to be wild, but holy hell, I still haven't recovered from that ride.

I Want a New Drug

Grey's Anatomy: I Want a New Drug

Season 15, Episode 14: " I Want a New Drug "

Just say no to drugs.  In all seriousness (although that is a serious and heartfelt suggestion), Grey's Anatomy Season 15 Episode 14 was a stirring take on America's Opiate Epidemic. It was likely something that the series was building up to, and Not Betty's involvement added that personal touch to the storyline that would not have landed the same without her. ...

Primal Instincts

Sirens: Primal Instincts

Season 2, Episode 5: " All the Single Ladies "

Freeform's mermaid themed drama has been getting better every week, and Siren Season 2 Episode 5 is no exception.  The acting was phenomenal, the storyline was entertaining, and the characters keep on getting cooler. Related: Siren Season 2 Episode 4 Review: Oil & Water Everyone has their own dangerous omen f...

Escape From The Happy Place

The Magicians: Escape From The Happy Place

Season 4, Episode 5: " Escape from the Happy Place "

Eliot is dead! Or so The Monster wants us to believe on The Magicians Season 4 Episode 5. However, all hope is not lost, since Eliot is actually in The Happy Place. The Happy Place is somewhere that The Monster cannot come, and it's filled with all of his past remembrances.  For the most part, Eliot seems unaware of what's going on, which wasn't what I was expected compared to the end of ...

Good Men

Chicago PD: Good Men

Season 6, Episode 15: " Good Men (2) "

As far as crossovers go, the latest Chicago Fire and Chicago PD episodes top the list as one of my favorites. Everything about Chicago PD Season 6 Episode 15 just worked. The storylines found a delicate balance and weren't overly political, each cast member was able to shine and contribute in some capacity, and the case was compelling and unlike anything we've ever seen before...

Stalking Horse

Suits: Stalking Horse

Season 8, Episode 15: " Stalking Horse "

Well, that will go down as the most unexpected episode of Suits in quite some time.  Suits Season 8 Episode 15 found the firm in yet another crisis, and for a change, the shouting matches between every character were warranted.  It only took eight seasons, but the powers that be are finding great reasons to turn these characters against each other.  That fina...


Pure: Communion

Season 1, Episode 5: " Episode 5 "

It was an obvious development. That didn't make Eli Voss's shooting of Abel any less impactful on Pure Season 1 Episode 5. I wrote shooting rather than killing because Abel's status wasn't totally clear at episode's end. Granted, he got shot in the chest in the wilds of Mexico, so I'm not holding my breath. But maybe he gets found in time to survive. Probably no...

The Forsaken

New Amsterdam (2018): The Forsaken

Season 1, Episode 14: " The Foresaken "

It was another emotional hour of the series. New Amsterdam Season 1 Episode 14 was another tearjerker with a touching case about a presumed veteran, Helen's emotional case with an abandoned baby, and the departure of a character who grew on us. Initially, the case with Mustafa seemed like another case involving a veteran who suffered from suicidal tendencies and trauma, but New A...

Caught Stealing

The Rookie: Caught Stealing

Season 1, Episode 12: " Heartbreak "

Favors, freebies, and the lure of easy money were the slippery slope the rookies had to face on The Rookie Season 1 Episode 12.  While some barely seemed tempted by the huge pile of cash sitting in front of them, others got flustered over a tasting a free dessert.  Officer Jackson West's attitude when it came to following the rules didn't surprise me as much as it annoye...

Our Little Island Girl

This Is Us: Our Little Island Girl

Season 3, Episode 13: " Our Little Island Girl "

Beth, I hear you calling, and it's time for you to come home right now.  After being put on the backburner for multiple episodes, Beth Pearson finally got her moment in the sun on This Is Us Season 3 Episode 13, and if anyone thought it was going to be a quaint, happy trip, you were sadly mistaken.  We're so used to hearing all about the trials and tribulations the Pearson fam...

Once Upon a Tim

NCIS: Once Upon a Tim

Season 16, Episode 14: " Once Upon a Tim "

This was a fun, "getting to know you" hour for Tim Mcgee. Yes, this NCIS Season 16 Episode 14 review is coming your way from me, a gal who has never watched NCIS in anything other than a passing way. Fourteen seasons and I'm not sure I have seen more than a dozen episodes at the houses of others. But, the desire is here for a place to chat about NCIS, and I'm going to attempt to...
