Breaking the Cycle

Charmed: Breaking the Cycle

Season 2, Episode 13: " Animal Pragmatism "

Secrets, secrets are no fun, unless you're telling everyone. On Charmed (2018) Season 2 Episode 13, the Charmed Ones learn hidden secrets about their idenities, their past, and each other. There were so many secrets revealed by Maggie, Mel, and Macy that it was hard to keep track and emotionally process each one. After watching, however, I was left with more que...

Like a Whirlwind, Whirling the Dust Upward

Hawaii Five-0: Like a Whirlwind, Whirling the Dust Upward

Season 10, Episode 17: " He kohu puahiohio i ka ho'olele i ka lepo i luna "

Let's start with what's most important. Junior and Tani finally got together on Hawaii Five-0 Season 10 Episode 17. About time. He returned from his hush-hush overseas mission and she was waiting to pick him up at the airport, looking very feminine for a change. Junior had Tani drive to a secluded patch of beach and things just accelerated from there....

You See Most Things in Terms of Black & White

Dynasty: You See Most Things in Terms of Black & White

Season 3, Episode 13: " You See Most Things in Terms of Black & White "

Do you know what was more dramatic than Liam's espionage noir pitch on Dynasty Season 3 Episode 13? That cliffhanger.  While the latter half of the episode was an emotional rollercoaster, the first half fell a bit flat. The black-and-white theme wasn't incorporated in the best way, but it did challenge the cast to break out of their cliched characters, which was exciting for ev...

A Diagnosis

Grey's Anatomy: A Diagnosis

Season 16, Episode 14: " A Diagnosis "

Love is dead. It seems happy, stable, and healthy couples are an impossibility on this series, and oh, look, Grey's Anatomy Season 16 Episode 14 killed all of the love. They also exposed all of the hypocrites, showed that there are a plethora of shockingly selfish characters, and they may dabble with some interesting mental health storylines too. But let's star...

Tearing Down the Donut Wall

The Bold Type: Tearing Down the Donut Wall

Season 4, Episode 5: " Tearing Down the Donut Wall "

Life isn’t a fairytale. Real-life is messy, complicated, and rarely turns out the way you expect it will. On The Bold Type Season 4 Episode 5, The Bold Babes and the rest of our favorite Scarlet employees were learning how to let go of fantasy and focus on reality. Read on as we discuss how wedding fever, uniform scandals, and casual sex helped our favorite characters get one...


Deputy: Selfless

Season 1, Episode 8: " 10-8 Selfless "

That was a great episode. Deputy Season 1 Episode 8 offered a more-well rounded approach to character management. It wasn't all Bill all the time, and it was better for it. "Selfless" still spent a good portion of time on Bill, Paula, and Maggie, but also contained interactions between Cade and Bishop and a deeper exploration of them both. The case of the week w...

Employee App

Superstore: Employee App

Season 5, Episode 16: " Employee App "

If you missed Superstore Season 5 Episode 16, you didn't miss much.  As usual, there was nothing drastically terrible about the episode. The problem is that there was nothing drastically good about it, either.  Although the show has improved during the second half of Superstore Season 5, "Employee App" felt like a step backward from the progress the series has recently made.

Into the Woods

Station 19: Into the Woods

Season 3, Episode 5: " Into the Woods "

Well, we finally have an answer as to why Maya is struggling as a leader. It's because she was never exposed to a decent role model growing up. As flashbacks showed on Station 19 Season 3 Episode 5, her father was downright abusive and only showed her affection after she met his high standards. If she fell short, well, then Maya could forget about any kindness o...


The Sinner: Ubermensch

Season 3, Episode 3: " Part III "

Is it any surprise that having the baby didn't do much to help Jamie and Leela get closer to one another? If anything, we learned on The Sinner Season 3 Episode 3 that their son breathing outside the womb has driven Jamie even farther away from an ideal life in the suburbs. It seems that Jamie's once-happy life is on its last breath. Ambrose found out about the...

The Sleepover

A Million Little Things: The Sleepover

Season 2, Episode 14: " the sleepover "

Your past will always catch up to and haunt you. It'll also bond you with those you care about, and both examples were featured prominently on A Million Little Things Season 2 Episode 14. Heck, maybe we can toss in a classic "be careful what you wish for," too, with Sophie's return. The angst between Sophie and her mother was an issue for a bit, and Sophie's pot...

The Jimmy Jab Games II

Brooklyn Nine-Nine: The Jimmy Jab Games II

Season 7, Episode 4: " The Jimmy Jab Games II "

Well, I didn't see that coming.  Brooklyn Nine-Nine is known for its twisty endings, but this one totally caught me off guard. New character Debbie Fogel threw us for a loop on Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 7 Episode 4. Vanessa Bayer shines in the role, and I'm excited to see where this storyline's going to go.  Her monotone delivery of Debbie's absurd ...

Chapter Three

Katy Keene: Chapter Three

Season 1, Episode 3: " Chapter Three: What Becomes of the Brokenhearted "

Who would have thought Katy Keene Season 1 Episode 3 -- a belated Valentine's edition of the series -- would conclude with Katy and K.O. ending their relationship? Not me. If you watch Katy Keene online, you know that Katy is bursting at the seams with optimism. Her aim has been to keep her and K.O. together despite their respective dreams pulling them further apart.  Despite...

Picard Season 1 Episode 5 Review

Star Trek: Picard: Picard Season 1 Episode 5 Review

Season 1, Episode 5: " Stardust City Rag "

For a show named after a male character, Star Trek: Picard Season 1 Episode 5 is completely focused on the women onboard the starship La Sirena. From Seven's Terminator-like revenge, to Raffi's attempted reconciliation, to Dr. Jurati's horrifying revelation (#CALLED #IT), a gamut of strong emotions is showcased, demonstrating the lengths at which these women are willing to risk themselves...


Good Trouble: Fragility

Season 2, Episode 16: " Fragility "

The relationships on Good Trouble are complicated. Both sisters are in interesting places in their relationships on Good Trouble Season 2 Episode 16, but have they reached a point of no return in them? Fortunately, Davia's storyline didn't pertain to her romantic relationship, but it was no less convoluted. The hour revisited her trials as an educator teaching m...

Acting Dean

The Magicians: Acting Dean

Season 5, Episode 7: " Acting Dean "

Even though we all saw it coming, a little piece of me hoped I was wrong. I wanted Seb to be a decent guy, mostly for Eliot's sake, but after The Magicians Season 5 Episode 7 that seems impossible. How can a ruler who's creating pillaging monsters that attack and kill his subjects be anything but a despot, as Margo would put it? All the writing on the wall has ...
