Babes in Toyland

The Bold Type: Babes in Toyland

Season 4, Episode 4: " Babes in Toyland "

Self-love is essential. It is so easy to get caught up in relationships and careers and forget about self-care, but to thrive, our happiness has to come first.  The vibrator fairy stopped by the Scarlet offices on The Bold Type Season 4 Episode 4. The ladies of Scarlet were taking a little "me" time and being reminded just how beneficial focusing on yourself can be and when it ...


The Sinner: Gravedigger

Season 3, Episode 2: " Part II "

That was a different direction! We know to expect the unexpected with this series, but on The Sinner Season 3 Episode 2, the tables were turned at the end of the hour. I'm beginning to get a very The Sinner Season 1 vibe from Jamie. When Cora became a killer during the first season, it seemed out of left field because she was a happily wed young mother. ...

Search and Rescue

Deputy: Search and Rescue

Season 1, Episode 7: " 10-8 Search and Rescue "

Was David Arquette the right man to play the off-kilter pedophile on Deputy Season 1 Episode 7? Maybe it was just me, but he played the part with almost cartoonish villainy which put a strain on the credibility of that story. Of course, the woman who played his wife did the same, but they were minor quibbles in an hour that reflected Deputy's views on parenting, fatherhood, and ...

House Where Nobody Lives

Station 19: House Where Nobody Lives

Season 3, Episode 4: " House Where Nobody Lives "

Well, it finally happened. After over two seasons, I finally felt an emotional connection to Jack. There have been moments here and there where I sympathesized with the guy, but Station 19 Season 3 Episode 4 knocked it out of the park. Now I am officially on #TeamJack, and maybe even weirdly on #TeamJack when it comes to him and Andy.  After a devas...


Brooklyn Nine-Nine: Pimento

Season 7, Episode 3: " Pimemento "

Adrian Pimento returns with a bang this week on Brooklyn Nine-Nine.  Or maybe that was a boom. Is that a bomb strapped to his chest? Nope, it's just his watch.  Jason Mantzoukas graces our screens once again with a storyline perfectly suited to his acting strengths.  He's completely out of his mind. Ever since I binged The Good Place and got to know Mantzoukas...


A Million Little Things: Daisy

Season 2, Episode 13: " daisy "

It was an hour full of love, support, and fuzzies. With most of the mysteries and tumultuous relationships out of the way, A Million Little Things Season 2 Episode 13 was an hour that was heavily character-focused and family-centric. It was wonderfully balanced, even though Delilah Daisy Dixon was who brought most of the hour together. Yes, Delilah Daisy marrie...

SVU Season 21 Episode 14 Review

Law & Order: SVU: SVU Season 21 Episode 14 Review

Season 21, Episode 14: " I Deserve Some Loving Too "

Immigration injustice stories have become a hot topic on TV ever since the family separation policy was enacted in real life. Law & Order: SVU Season 21 Episode 14 jumped on the bandwagon for the second time since 2017, this time dealing with an immigration official who was raping green card applicants It was a tough case, but was it realistic? Immigration o...

Save the Last Dance for Me

Grey's Anatomy: Save the Last Dance for Me

Season 16, Episode 13: " Save the Last Dance for Me "

Um, okay. Let's do this. If you're an impatient person, then Grey's Anatomy Season 16 Episode 13 probably drove you insane. We still don't know the paternity of Amelia's child, Alex's whereabouts, McWidow's actual purpose, which version of Tom, Jackson, and Owen we'll get from each installment when Merluca decided they were a thing again, and what's ailing Suzanne.

Cereal Bar

Superstore: Cereal Bar

Season 5, Episode 15: " Cereal Bar "

It may have been Valentine's Day, but it was hard to feel the love on Superstore Season 5 Episode 15.  "Cereal Bar" was a good installment, but it lacked the comedy that the second half of Superstore Season 5 has been providing so well.  There were a few laughs amidst an episode revolving heavily around the plot, but while Superstore is usually incredible at creating a balan...

Chapter Two

Katy Keene: Chapter Two

Season 1, Episode 2: " Chapter Two: You Can't Hurry Love "

You can't hurry love. It's sad, but it's true, and Katy Keene Season 1 Episode 2 put love at the forefront as Katy questioned whether getting married to K.O. was part of her destiny. While it's evident she thought they could get married down the line, her mature thought process continued to set this series apart from Riverdale. Instead ...

Crank Up the Volume and Hit Repeat

High Fidelity: Crank Up the Volume and Hit Repeat

Season 1, Episode 4: " Good Luck and Goodbye "

Finding the right person to call your lover is tough. Hulu's High Fidelity zeroes in on that sentiment, and it's just in time for Valentine's Day. The Zoe Kravitz-fronted comedy debuts Friday, February 14, but you will be sorely disappointed if you're looking for a rom-com series to binge on the big day. High Fidelity plays with the conventions of romantic comedi...

Picard Season 1 Episode 4 Review

Star Trek: Picard: Picard Season 1 Episode 4 Review

Season 1, Episode 4: " Absolute Candor "

It occured to me while watching Star Trek: Picard Season 1 Episode 4 that, even in the future, roadtrips can be super frustrating. Picard's crew has settled into archetypal roles pretty quickly with Dr. Jurati nervously nattering on aimlessly, Rios trying to find a quiet place to read, and Raffi raging at every change in the itinerary. So what's misisng on this crew? Some muscl...

It May Not Be Forever

Chicago Med: It May Not Be Forever

Season 5, Episode 14: " It May Not Be Forever "

Will isn't known for making good decisions, but this last one was a doozy. Naturally, his struggle with his conscience on Chicago Med Season 5 Episode 14 led to him agreeing to stay the night with Dr. Asher. It's obvious where this is going ... but does anyone want to go there? This whole Will safe injection site storyline has been disappointing, mostly because...

Family Tree

Criminal Minds: Family Tree

Season 15, Episode 8: " Family Tree "

Changes may be on the horizon at the BAU. Both Prentiss and J.J. were pondering life-changing positions on Criminal Minds Season 15 Episode 8. Let's assess the possibility of the pair actually moving on. As Deputy Director Barbour pointed out to Emily, Director of the FBI is a political position. Prentiss has proven she is not a political ani...

Center Mass

Chicago PD: Center Mass

Season 7, Episode 14: " Center Mass "

It was back to business on Chicago PD Season 7 Episode 14. Rojas got her time in the spotlight as Burgess took a backseat to deal with the aftermath of her brutal miscarriage.  The series didn't spend too much time addressing what happened, but it did show Burgess getting discharged from the hospital and trying to navigate this new reality with Ruzek. Neither one of them has be...
