New Orleans Season 5 Episode 15 Review

NCIS: New Orleans: New Orleans Season 5 Episode 15 Review

Season 5, Episode 15: " Crab Mentality "

Finally, the storyline involving Hannah's overseas ops began to get rolling. It actually even intertwined with the case of the week on NCIS: New Orleans Season 5 Episode 15. How's that for synchronicity? I thought the storyline featuring Hannah's old CIA partner Liam on NCIS: New Orleans Season 5 Episode 14 seemed to just peter out, a real Peggy Lee moment. ...

Byte Club

Good Trouble: Byte Club

Season 1, Episode 8: " Byte Club "

Isn't LA a large city?  There were so many things happening on Good Trouble Season 1 Episode 8, but something that stood out was the case of six degrees of separation. Even Jesus got in on the action. Noah Centineo is a sight to behold, and Jesus is as lovable as ever. Jesus had one of the best arcs in the latter years of the mother series, and it was one of ma...

You Are Like the Sun

The Passage: You Are Like the Sun

Season 1, Episode 7: " You Are Like the Sun "

Poor Elizabeth.  After suffering from Alzheimer's disease, having it cured, and turned into a vampire, the character is no more.  The Passage Season 1 Episode 7 slowed down considerably from the earlier episodes, and it just wasn't as engaging as the other episodes on The Passage Season 1.  We needed a big death to show how far these characters ar...


The Good Doctor: Believe

Season 2, Episode 16: " Believe "

Is it bad that I agree with Dr. Han?  The Good Doctor Season 2 Episode 16 picked up with Shaun taking on a new role in pathology, and he made a lot of strides.  Han has been introduced as an adversary for Shaun, but I'm starting to get the impression Shaun was moved to the new field because Han had faith the former surgical resident would excel more in that role.  ...

Murder Is Never Quiet

Magnum P.I.: Murder Is Never Quiet

Season 1, Episode 16: " Murder is Never Quiet "

Happy outcomes for everyone! Magnum and Higgins worked together to save another innocent life on Magnum P.I. Season 1 Episode 16, but it wasn't as easy to prove as they hoped. Even Katsumoto got involved. I guess he doesn't hate Magnum as much as he claims. How Magnum gets away with the things he does sometimes is always surprising. Trying to get out...

Lost Souls

Shadowhunters: Lost Souls

Season 3, Episode 11: " Lost Souls "

The reluctant beginning of the end is here, Shadowhunters fans. As much as we don't want to say goodbye, it's great to finally see our favorites on the screen again! Like the characters on Shadowhunters Season 3 Episode 11, we picked up right where we left off: Clary's death. And just like the news of Shadowhunters' cancellation, the reality is heartbreaking and filled with plenty of emotio...

You’ll Know the Bottom When You Hit It

Shameless: You’ll Know the Bottom When You Hit It

Season 9, Episode 12: " You'll Know The Bottom When You Hit It "

Admitting you need help is the first step to recovery.  Shameless Season 9 Episode 12 found Fiona hitting rock bottom, and it was about time. After becoming a successful businesswoman, and someone who stood to make a lot of money from her own apartment building, managing Patsy's and investing, Fiona lost it all. It was cruel to take everything from ...

Natural Selection

The Walking Dead: Natural Selection

Season 9, Episode 11: " Bounty "

Alpha is a serious force to be reckoned with. The Walking Dead Season 9 Episode 11 continued the tense standoff at the Hilltop when Alpha came knocking in search of her daughter. It was a thrilling episode that that displayed just how vicious and cutthroat the Whisperer leader is. That included an unnerving scene involving an infant whisperer. This series has bee...

Chad And Abigail's Swan Song

Days of our Lives: Chad And Abigail's Swan Song

Season 44, Episode 73: " Feb 23, 2009 "

Raise your hand if Chad and Abigail's wedding moved you to tears. I cried more than once -- and I haven't been a big fan of them in a long time! Whatever you felt about this couple, they got a beautiful farewell -- and no gratuitous deaths, either! The wedding was rushed so that the couple could hightail it out of Salem, but it was nothing unusual for this soap.

Minister D

The Blacklist: Minister D

Season 6, Episode 9: " Minister D "

Oh, Dembe. What have you done? Dembe hunted for the truth on The Blacklist Season 6 Episode 8 and The Blacklist Season 6 Episode 9  and found it, but in the end, he decided it best to keep it a secret. As disappointing as it was, it is not surprising he didn't tell Red the truth about what Liz had done. It would have crushed Red almost as much as it crushed De...

Double Trouble

Hawaii Five-0: Double Trouble

Season 9, Episode 16: " Hapai ke kuko, hanau ka hewa "

Somehow, tonight's two episodes jammed together actually both delved into the subject of family: a happy accident, no doubt. First, Adam helped out a deaf homeless man reconnect with his family on Hawaii Five-0 Season 9 Episode 16. Even the case of the week had something of a family angle, as the greedy killer ends up trying to save her children from the gang for which she was l...

The Burden of Truth

Proven Innocent: The Burden of Truth

Season 1, Episode 2: " The Burden of Truth "

Proven Innocent doesn't shy away from anything! Proven Innocent Season 1 Episode 2 took on the issue of survivors needing to be heard and believed in a way I've never seen before. It explored a ton of problems with the legal system, introduced Easy's troubled marriage, set up a new mystery about why Bellows' wife hates his new hire and delved deeper into the mystery behind Rosem...

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...
