Hail & Farewell

NCIS: Hail & Farewell

Season 16, Episode 20: " Hail & Farewell "

Well, that was a nice change of pace. NCIS Season 16 Episode 20 framed Gibbs for a crime he didn't commit. It was a riveting hour that shed light on parts of his life about which long-time viewers did not know.  Many shows run out of steam in their later years, and then there's NCIS that is still fleshing out Leroy Jethro Gibbs. Bringing Ellen into th...


Roswell, New Mexico: Creep

Season 1, Episode 12: " Creep "

That was a heartbreaking twist.  Roswell, New Mexico Season 1 Episode 12 took our favorite characters on a wild ride, and by the end of the installment, everything was changed. Let's start with Michael. He was once just a young boy who felt like nobody in the world wanted him. He had Max and Isobel, but they were welcomed into the Evans family. He was not. ...

Who's Got the Pain?

Fosse/Verdon: Who's Got the Pain?

Season 1, Episode 2: " Who's Got the Pain? "

Gwen and Bobby's first meeting is dissected on Fosse/Verdon Season 1 Episode 2, and every scene plays like the seductive striptease Bobby imagined for Whatever Lola Wants from Damn Yankees. The way the musical numbers get tossed in around vignettes from their first collaboration and the beginning of their romance is reminiscent of their greatest works on stage. The editing...

Plus It Up

The Bold Type: Plus It Up

Season 3, Episode 2: " Plus It Up "

Dealing with issues beyond their control felt like the theme for Sutton, Jane, and Kat this time around. Factors that they weren't part of contributed to a more significant issue that they had to solve with some success and some failure. But out of all of it felt like an underlying message about taking control regardless of the situation.  During The Bold Type Season 3 Episode...

New Orleans Season 5 Episode 20 Review

NCIS: New Orleans: New Orleans Season 5 Episode 20 Review

Season 5, Episode 20: " Jackpot "

Sometimes your basic standalone episode hits the spot and sometimes it doesn't Elvis Bertrand returned on NCIS: New Orleans Season 5 Episode 20. How you felt about this episode had to start with how you feel about Elvis, a semi-reformed hacker that Pride had befriended and helped out of a jam. How you feel about Elvis has to start with how you feel about Tom Arn...

Equal Before God

Knightfall: Equal Before God

Season 2, Episode 4: " Equal Before God "

Landry is a Templar once again, but on Knightfall Season 2 Episode 4, his success is short-lived. Landry knew there would come a time when he would have to face-off against Philip, but he didn't think it would come the same day he got his Templar robe and sword back. He didn't exactly face King Philip directly, but when Gawain and his men attacked the Lazarus Temple and fo...


The Code (2011): P.O.G.

Season 1, Episode 2: " Shapes "

A smooth transition into the characters' personal lives was certainly welcome. We got to learn more about the Marine lawyers on The Code Season 1 Episode 2. Let's start with the new addition, Lt. Harper Li. First off, it's evident that her parents had a wicked sense of humor to name her after the author of "To Kill a Mockingbird," the ultimate courtroom drama ...

Lost Canary

Arrow: Lost Canary

Season 7, Episode 18: " Lost Canary "

Some of the most enjoyable episodes of Arrow have featured the ladies. When the ladies of Arrow are showcased, it proves there is still a lot of life left in the Arrow franchise because of how long it took for each character to come into their own. And Arrow Season 7 Episode 18 almost had more than a Birds of Prey fanatic could handle. Call me crazy, but the ve...


9-1-1: Broken

Season 2, Episode 14: " Broken "

It's amazing how much we rely on certain things in this day and age.  We are so reliant on phones and computers that when they're ripped away from us, it's a like a bucket of cold water is being poured over our heads. It's a shock we don't know how to handle.  On 9-1-1 Season 2 Episode 14 the power was out at the call center, and for a minute or so it felt like all hell was a...

The Beast Within

Shadowhunters: The Beast Within

Season 3, Episode 18: " The Beast Within "

Fans asked, and the writers delivered. If you were hoping for a mixture of angst, action, and romance, Shadowhunters Season 3 Episode 18 checked each box perfectly. Related: Shadowhunters Season 3 Episode 17 Review: Heavenly Fire Each storyline brought something different to the table, and despite the range of em...

If Not Now, When?

The Resident: If Not Now, When?

Season 2, Episode 20: " If Not Now, When? "

Some hours of televison are so powerful and profound that no amount of words can do them justice.  I believe The Resident Season 2 Episode 20 is one of those hours. It's one of the most incredible hours of the series to date and one of which will leave a lasting impact. Storytelling is best when it's influential and resonates -- when you walk away from it, and it makes you thi...

Donar the Great

American Gods: Donar the Great

Season 2, Episode 6: " Donar the Great "

I have so many mixed feeling about American Gods Season 2 Episode 6. On the one hand, it was an entertaining weaving of past and present, showing us how Wednesday's single-minded drive for power has spanned generations. On the other hand, not a lot happened to further the story in the present-day. Gungnir's runes get recharged. Cool. Was it worth an entire episo...

Constant Craving

A Discovery of Witches: Constant Craving

Season 1, Episode 2: " Episode 2 "

All the creatures are dying out, kind of like the polar ice caps. That's an analogy Matthew used during A Discovery of Witches Season 1 Episode 2 while explaining to Diana why it's so important for her to use her magic and to share his concern over the status of earth's creatures. If it's not just vampires dying, does that mean people like Peter Knox have no idea about the expi...

The Dubby

Good Girls: The Dubby

Season 2, Episode 7: " The Dubby "

The walls may soon be closing in on Beth. While she's been able to balance her new career and her family to a point, during Good Girls Season 2 Episode the lines began to blur. And quite frankly, things may be getting a bit out of hand.  But is Beth too far gone? The ladies have crossed over into full-blown criminal territory overnight, and they've been able t...

Los Angeles Season 10 Episode 20 Review

NCIS: Los Angeles: Los Angeles Season 10 Episode 20 Review

Season 10, Episode 20: " Choke Point "

Was there a case? What truly mattered is that Hetty was back on NCIS: Los Angeles Season 10 Episode 20. I've missed Hetty the All-Knowing. Nothing ever got by her. So what if she had only been seen this season officiating Kensi and Deeks' wedding on NCIS: Los Angeles Season 10 Episode 17? She was obviously as plugged into what's going on around the OS...
