The Descent Into Madness

Catch-22: The Descent Into Madness

Season 1, Episode 5: " Episode 5 "

Darkness finds Yossarian's heart. There's a chilling effect at work on Catch-22 Season 1 Episode 5. Injustice is rampant, where goodness and decency does not win out and gets punished. It's a depressing avenue for the show to go down, but it's effective in showing the warning signs of Yossarian having good reason to go mad. He can't win, no matter how...

Deception, Jealousy, and Lies

Dynasty: Deception, Jealousy, and Lies

Season 2, Episode 22: " Deception, Jealousy and Lies "

Deception, jealousy, and lies were at the core of a fantastic season finale. I'd say the season's ups and downs are worth watching simply for their shocking finales.  By the end of Dynasty Season 2 Episode 22, two dead bodies were pulled out of the Carrington lake, Liam was drowning in the pool (at least someone uses the amenities), Blake betrayed everyone, Dominique betrayed C...

Dot Zom

iZombie: Dot Zom

Season 5, Episode 4: " Dot Zom "

Blaine was back, and iZombie Season 5 Episode 4  blessed us with an epic Capoeira routine I'll have to rewatch over and over again. I always miss David Anders when he isn't in an hour and love him all the more when he returns to one. His brain of the week was slightly more interesting than Liz's, but there are few complaints. The real crime of the hour was tha...


Chicago PD: Reckoning

Season 6, Episode 22: " Reckoning "

Well, there's no turning back now.  After a rocky season, Chicago PD went out with a bang!  On Chicago PD Season 6 Episode 22, Intelligence faced off against soon-to-be Mayor Kelton, and it was brutal from start to finish.  Kelton's rise to the top didn't just threaten Intelligence's existence, it also threated to end Ruzek's career.  The IRT and ...

Chapter Ninety

Jane The Virgin: Chapter Ninety

Season 5, Episode 9: " Chapter Ninety "

At the start of Jane the Virgin Season 5 Episode 9, it felt as if the writers were gearing up for the beginning of the end.  Many of the stories were being neatly wrapped up in a bow. Michael's presence enveloped much of the first half of the season but now, Jane closed the chapter on her back-from-the-dead husband.  While her relationship with Rafael remains ...

Milo's Grand Tour

Catch-22: Milo's Grand Tour

Season 1, Episode 4: " Episode 4 "

Everyone is looking to do better on Catch-22 Season 1 Episode 4, whether it's finishing one's duty faster or gaining business. It becomes clear some are luckier than others in this regard. Two lead characters, Yossarian and Milo, taking on opportunities to further their goals, but it's in Milo where opportunity strikes. Milo becomes a major part of the episode, ...

The Face Behind the Glass

The 100: The Face Behind the Glass

Season 6, Episode 4: " The Face Behind the Glass "

There is nothing quite as satisfying as all the pieces fitting together the way you knew they would. Except for the whole Sanctum cult portion of the reveal, safety has never felt so out of reach.  But if there is one thing we can count on it's that people will always let you down, because there is no such thing as total piece even on the most beautiful of planets.  During The...

Above the Knee

The Code: Above the Knee

Season 1, Episode 7: " Above the Knee "

Every legal drama needs a case where no one wins. That was certainly what happened on The Code Season 1 Episode 7. The case involving Lt. Zephyr "Tark" Tarkanian was a dog from the get-go. Tark had already been nominated for a Medal of Honor. But instead of going home with his unit, he stayed, fighting with a local militia against the Syrian army in w...

The Face of Cowardice

Catch-22: The Face of Cowardice

Season 1, Episode 3: " Episode 3 "

The fine line between protection and cowardice becomes much clearer. On Catch-22 Season 1 Episode 3 Yossarian is trying to do the right thing. He's driven by survival in a war full of death and can't catch a break when all of his plans blows up in his face. Cowardice charges are rampant, as Yossarian blurs the line between doing the right thing and self-preserva...

Hope Is With the Heart

When Calls the Heart: Hope Is With the Heart

Season 6, Episode 7: " Hope is With the Heart "

It will be a blessing when When Calls the Heart Season 6 comes to an end. After When Calls the Heart Season 6 Episode 7, it's obvious there was so much retooling done after Lori Loughlin's departure that the story suffers as a result. When a star as big as Bruce Boxleitner drops into town and his appearance gets cut to about five minutes of airtime, you know something doesn't sme...

Los Angeles Season 10 Episode 24 Review

NCIS: Los Angeles: Los Angeles Season 10 Episode 24 Review

Season 10, Episode 24: " False Flag "

Give the powers that be on NCIS: Los Angeles credit. They know how to set up a cliffhanger. The world ended up on the brink of World War III on NCIS: Los Angeles Season 10 Episode 24. It's hard to generate much more suspense than that. Most everyone in the regular cast and a handful of the guest stars were in various kinds of peril: Sam, Callen, Kensi, Deeks, Ha...


A Discovery of Witches: Madison

Season 1, Episode 7: " Episode 7 "

On A Discovery of Witches Season 1 Episode 7, Matthew and Diana arrive in Madison to frolic gaily in the woods and the bedroom while arguing here and there with Sarah and Emily only to have their joy cut short thanks to Juliette. This is one of my favorite episodes because of how together Matthew and Diana are once they're off their home turf. We also finally get an op...


Good Girls: Jeff

Season 2, Episode 12: " Jeff "

And just like that, he’s back. Good Girls Season 2 Episode 12 dropped a major bomb on the ladies, and the audience as well. We’ve been plodding along for most of this season thinking a major character was gone forever, but we were wrong. Boy, oh boy, were we wrong. Beth’s discovery of the black hair at the end of Good Girls Season 2 Episode 11 made it appa...

The Quest for Peace

Supergirl: The Quest for Peace

Season 4, Episode 22: " The Quest for Peace "

A great episode concludes a political, divisive, and explosive season of Supergirl.  Don't you love it when storylines come full circle making a questionable season worth watching? Lex Luthor enacted his maniacal plan on Supergirl Season 4 Episode 22 only to lose to yet another Kryptonian.  Supergirl meant it when she said that truth and justice always prevai...

Wide Awake

Killing Eve: Wide Awake

Season 2, Episode 7: " Wide Awake "

How bad do you have to be feeling to confront your deepest feelings to a psychopath? Well, Eve fell just shy of doing that on Killing Eve Season 2 Episode 7 when she scoured Villanelle's brain to find any similarity to what she's been feeling. It's unlikely very many people have experienced anything similar to what is happening with Eve. It takes Eve by surpris...
