A Sonnet for Caroline

Chesapeake Shores: A Sonnet for Caroline

Season 4, Episode 3: " A Sonnet for Caroline "

Let's talk about love! Chesapeake Shores Season 4 Episode 3 pushed aside most of the business woes that were on tap for Chesapeake Shores Season 4 Episode 2. Unfortunately, all the couples didn't make it out of the hour intact, but this review will try to help mend broken hearts. Before we get to the romantic notions afoot on "A Sonnet for Caroline," let's get b...

Forgot About Dre

Power: Forgot About Dre

Season 6, Episode 3: " Forgot About Dre "

Desperate times call for desperate measures.  And Ghost is the definition of desperate.  Every single aspect of Ghost's life is in turmoil, and he's beginning to run out of options. Power Season 6 Episode 3 saw Ghost realizing that his worst enemy might be of help to him.  When Ghost has to call on Simon Stern for money and a favor, you know times are rough....

Some Life Left In the Old Girl

Days of our Lives: Some Life Left In the Old Girl

Season 54, Episode 244: " Friday September 6, 2019 "

Although Days of Our Lives overuses the back from the dead trope, it's always good to see Vivian Alamain. Vivian is equal parts classy and conscienceless, making her the perfect soap diva. Louise Sorel made this character her own, so recasting her when Sorel wasn't available was a risky move. It's going to take time for viewers to get Louise Sorel's version of Vivian out of their...

Don't Stop Beweaving

Killjoys: Don't Stop Beweaving

Season 5, Episode 8: " Don't Stop Beweaving "

There's no such thing as a nuclear family in the J. Killjoys Season 5 Episode 8 was spent examining the question of what family means. In short, it was no one right combination of people. But we did get to see many possibilities in a short 45 minutes. The best had to be Zephyr returning to Leith and her farming community from which she had escaped yea...


Queen Sugar: Here

Season 4, Episode 12: " Here "

Charley Bordelon was riding a high on Queen Sugar Season 4 Episode 12. Her mill was in ruins and the police were looking at her and her family as arson suspects, the corrupt local government was trying to make it impossible to win the election, and she hadn't heard from her boyfriend since he walked out the door.  But none of that mattered. Because Micah was go...

Scenic Route

Suits: Scenic Route

Season 9, Episode 7: " Scenic Route "

That was one for the feels! Suits Season 9 Episode 7 found Samantha and Harvey on the road, and the journey to find the Samantha's father helped Harvey to see things a bit more clearly.  If you watch Suits online, you know that Samantha and Harvey are more alike than they would care to admit.  Samantha's mission to find her father proved to be a daunting expe...

Picture's Up

BH90210: Picture's Up

Season 1, Episode 5: " Picture's Up "

It was starting to feel like the reboot was never going to take flight.  And production was once again halted on BH90210 Season 1 Episode 5 as the search for the stalker intensified. Tori swore she knew the identity of the stalker, and it led to a very familiar blast from the past. It was easily the funniest scene of the series to date.  Many different people...

The Political Wife

Pearson: The Political Wife

Season 1, Episode 8: " The Political Wife "

The women of the series are badass, even if some of them are more aggravating than others.  One would refer to Pearson Season 1 Episode 8 as "the one where Keri needed to have several seats." Despite the Keri-ness of it all, Lenz is phenomenal. Meanwhile, Stephanie Novak is a Boss Lady and should be mayor, not the first lady. It needed to be said. Nothing tops...

Dear Santiago

Gran Hotel: Dear Santiago

Season 1, Episode 12: " Part 12 "

Somebody start a slow clap because Grand Hotel Season 1 Episode 12 just pulled off a legitimate bomb shell.  In the age of social media, pulling off real surprises on TV shows is no easy feat, but Grand Hotel pulled it off like an old pro. If that didn't earn them a second season renewal I don't know what will. What secret left this reviewer with her jaw on the floor? Check ou...

Ner Tamid

Fear The Walking Dead: Ner Tamid

Season 5, Episode 12: " Ner Tamid "

Disappointing is a perfect word to describe Fear the Walking Dead of late.  There is so much squandered potential, and Fear the Walking Dead Season 5 Episode 12 did not even attempt to break the wheel.  Despite a solid opening to introduce Jacob, most of everything that came after felt like further setup for the storyline of Fear the Walking Dead Season 5 Episode 13.  ...

Say Goodbye to Montauk

The Affair: Say Goodbye to Montauk

Season 5, Episode 2: " Episode 2 "

Well, that was more than a little frustrating.  Janelle was one of the better additions to The Affair Season 4, but the decision to relive parts of Vik's funeral on The Affair Season 5 Episode 2 was downright cruel.  I respect that to understand Janelle's machinations we need to follow her on this journey, but all of her scenes would have resonated better if they were part of...

Safe Room

Succession: Safe Room

Season 2, Episode 4: " Safe Room "

If you've ever questioned the brilliance of Succession, you have to be on board after watching Succession Season 2 Episode 4. "Safe Room" delivered laugh-out-loud comedy and then turned around and offered incredibly tense emotional moments. There is no other show like it on television right now. That the professional marriage of Nicholas Braun and Matthew Macfay...

Whose Side Are You On?

Power: Whose Side Are You On?

Season 6, Episode 2: " Whose Side Are You On? "

The walls are closing in on Ghost.  And he has no one to blame but himself.  Ghost's continuous lies and betrayals have put him in a position where he's essentially all by himself and that was made painfully clear on Power Season 6 Episode 2.  Throughout the series, Ghost was always annoyingly ahead of the game most of the time. He was able to get himself out...

Leap of Faith

Chesapeake Shores: Leap of Faith

Season 4, Episode 2: " Leap of Faith "

What's life without challenges? If you're answer is "not much" or something similar, then maybe you're excited for all of the trying times ahead for the characters on Chesapeake Shores. Internal strife was at the ready on Chesapeake Shores Season 4 Episode 2, that's for sure. Overall, it was a great episode because every character got equal attention. Sometime's...
