Chicago PD: Trust

Season 6, Episode 11: " Trust "

Intelligence keeps getting bogged down with scandal after scandal.  It's amazing they still have the manpower to get anything done. First, Olinsky died, then Antonio had a drug problem and his daughter was kidnapped, then Ruzek took the fall for Antonio, and now, Atwater got shot!  They just cannot catch a break.  And that wasn't even the craziest t...

No Exit

Riverdale (US): No Exit

Season 3, Episode 9: " Chapter Forty-Four: No Exit "

Oh Archie, even with being miles away from Riverdale, your hometown troubles always find a way to mess with you. Our favorite boy-next-door's life hangs in the balance on Riverdale Season 3 Episode 9. But even with the fear, the bear attack might've been the best thing that could've happened to him. Might we be getting a new and improved Archie? Archie can use this resolution fo...

A Seat at the Table

New Amsterdam (2018): A Seat at the Table

Season 1, Episode 11: " A Seat at the Table "

This show is special to me and makes me feel all fuzzy and warm inside. It's like a warm embrace at the end of a tiring day.  Sorry, it's just that New Amsterdam Season 1 Episode 11 was super emotional, which is to say it was business as usual on a series that makes it its mission to trigger a person's allergies.  What are we supposed to do with all of these emotions?!  ...

Flesh and Blood

The Rookie: Flesh and Blood

Season 1, Episode 10: " Flesh and Blood "

It was a strange day on The Rookie Season 1 Episode 10 as everyone, except Officers West and Lopez traded partners.  As much as I love the regular pairings, it's always fun to see how characters react when things are changed up, and while some acted the way I'd expected, others surprised me.  There was no doubt that Grey was going to ride with Nolan, even with Jackson w...

The Last Seven Weeks

This Is Us: The Last Seven Weeks

Season 3, Episode 10: " The Last Seven Weeks "

Wow, a lot can happen in seven weeks, at least that was the case for the Pearson clan.  That's right; the Pearsons are back and better than ever. I know what you're thinking, how can all three Pearson siblings be back and better than ever? One of them had to end the episode in a crumbling mess after screwing up majorly. It's a tradition for the Big Three after all.  ...

The Flatwoods Monster

Project Blue Book: The Flatwoods Monster

Season 1, Episode 2: " The Flatwoods Monster "

Strange things are happening all around Dr. Hynek. While he thought he solved the Flatwoods Monster case on Project Blue Book Season 1 Episode 2, he left the small West Virginia town with more questions than answers. Hynek is still thinking like a scientist, but with all the weird getting thrown at him, he's beginning to take a different perspective about what's happening in the...

The Flash & The Furious

The Flash: The Flash & The Furious

Season 5, Episode 10: " The Flash & The Furious "

That was an interesting way to open the second half of the season. The Flash Season 5 Episode 10 took a unique approach to the 5B opener, choosing not only to migrate away from its typical high level of action sequences but also to sideline a good chunk of its main characters. Cicada was nowhere to be found this episode, although Team Flash did inform viewers he was success...

New Orleans Season 5 Episode 11 Review

NCIS: New Orleans: New Orleans Season 5 Episode 11 Review

Season 5, Episode 11: " Vindicta "

That was a pretty well thought-out balancing act. Pride and his team got a measure of justice for Cassius on NCIS: New Orleans Season 5 Episode 11. But no one could conclude that Apollyon has been taken out of the picture altogether. Sure, the agency of rogue intelligence agents has been crippled, but let's not pretend it's gone. Is it realistic to believe that...

The Coterie

Good Trouble: The Coterie

Season 1, Episode 2: " The Coterie "

Second-hand embarrassment is real.  If you made it through Good Trouble Season 1 Episode 2 without covering your eyes, grabbing your head, or making the Chrissy Teigen cringe face, then I applaud you. I feel for all of my Coterie babies. I feel for them all so much. Let's talk about sex, or rather sexuality and how the return of one of the most universally bel...

Quarantine Part Two

The Good Doctor: Quarantine Part Two

Season 2, Episode 11: " Quarantine Part Two "

That was one hell of an outbreak.  The Good Doctor Season 2 Episode 11 resolved the cliffhangers we were left with after The Good Doctor Season 2 Episode 10, and it fell a bit short of expectations.  The Good Doctor prides itself in hitting viewers right in the feels, but there was something about "Quarantine Part Two" that felt not only rushed but also somewhat convoluted. 

Nowhere to Hide

Magnum P.I.: Nowhere to Hide

Season 1, Episode 11: " Nowhere to Hide "

The Dobermans are thawing! Zeus and Apollo jumped to action on  Magnum P.I. Season 1 Episode 11 and saved Magnum when he least expected it. Magnum thought he was going to have to take the bad guys down on his own to save Higgins and Kumu, but the dogs surprisingly came to Magnum's defense. They're warming to Magnum which seems to coincide with Higgi...

After the Fall

The Resident: After the Fall

Season 2, Episode 10: " After the Fall "

Whoa! The sophomore season isn't f**king around. The Resident Season 2 Episode 10 is all the proof you needed if you had doubts, and if you ever had doubts, why?! It wasn't just that shocking ending that sealed the deal, but the entire hour was a perfect setup for the back half of the season, and we should be thoroughly engrossed in all things Chastain from every angle from thi...

Miracle on 123rd Street

God Friended Me: Miracle on 123rd Street

Season 1, Episode 13: " Miracle On 123rd Street "

What started off as an overwhelming task for Miles and Cara on behalf of the God Account quickly became a lesson on the importance of a brother and sister's unbreakable bond.  And, as always, God Friended Me Season 1 Episode 13 placed a heavy emphasis on the importance of family and the sense of community.  There was thematic cohesion between Denise and William's relationship...

Los Angeles Season 10 Episode 13 Review

NCIS: Los Angeles: Los Angeles Season 10 Episode 13 Review

Season 10, Episode 13: " Better Angels "

Sometimes, there's just no comic relief. Of course, that was to be expected when chemical attacks in Syria were at the heart of NCIS: Los Angeles Season 10 Episode 13. Nope, this one was sad pretty much from beginning to end. And that's alright, occasionally.  Like on NCIS: Los Angeles Season 9 Episode 7, when radical service members took over missile silos in ...

Strategic Ambiguity

Madam Secretary: Strategic Ambiguity

Season 5, Episode 12: " Strategic Ambiguity "

Corporate money in politics leading to conflicts of interest. Budget disagreements threatening to turn into a government shutdown. Madam Secretary Season 5 Episode 12 once again pulled from current political events without becoming partisan or preachy, resulting in a tense story that raised more questions than it provided answers. Throughout the hour, Elizabeth ...
