Scorched Earth

Dare Me: Scorched Earth

Season 1, Episode 7: " Scorched Earth "

We were promised a death. And we got one. Dare Me Season 1 Episode 7 took us to Regionals, where the ladies competed and the relationship between Addy and Beth crumbled. Potentially for good. The squad rolls into Regionals ready to make a statement, and the girls don’t even seem that stressed. Everyone but Addy that is. While all the girl...

Back From the Future -- Part Two

Supergirl: Back From the Future -- Part Two

Season 5, Episode 12: " Back from the Future (2) "

Winn Schott is amazing. Why did he ever leave? Winn saved the day on Supergirl Season 5 Episode 12, and it was as if he never left. He stopped his evil counterpart from killing DEO agents and gave Kara some amazing advice, even though she refused to take it. Winn was the best part of an episode that did little to move the story forward and showcased the same problems our Super Fr...

Los Angeles Season 11 Episode 14 Review

NCIS: Los Angeles: Los Angeles Season 11 Episode 14 Review

Season 11, Episode 14: " Commitment Issues "

It was guest-stars-galore night when NCIS: Los Angeles returned for the first time in ages. Katherine Casillas, Nicole DeChamps, and a familiar Chinese shell corporation all turned up on NCIS: Los Angeles Season 11 Episode 14. It made for a fun, bouncy episode, with nothing too heavy weighing down the action. There was no Hetty sighting, unfortunately, which is ...

Take Your Choice

Batwoman: Take Your Choice

Season 1, Episode 12: " Take Your Choice "

While Batwoman Season 1 Episode 12 answers some questions, it also left a lot on the table. In the original series order, this would have been the season's penultimate episode, the set up for the finale. As such, it does a good job rehashing some of the more memorable moments so far. There's a few specific things I am particularly grateful for: one, they didn't...

The Princess and the Hacker

God Friended Me: The Princess and the Hacker

Season 2, Episode 13: " The Princess and the Hacker "

What a great episode, not only to bring us back into the God Friended Me orbit after such a lengthy hiatus but also to celebrate Valentine's Day and love.  Much of Miles' mission to find out who is behind the God Account was put on the backburner on God Friended Me Season 2 Episode 13, and the episode was better and stronger because of it.  Without that added concern, Miles, C...

Fog of War

Blue Bloods: Fog of War

Season 10, Episode 14: " Fog of War "

If there's one thing you can learn from Blue Bloods, it's that cops take it seriously when they have to shoot to kill. On Blue Bloods Season 10 Episode 14, both Jamie and the officer who pulled the trigger blamed themselves for the accidental death of a fellow officer, while Frank struggled to find the right words to say about the situation. It made for one of the most emotional...

He kauwa ke kanaka na ke aloha (Man is a slave of love)

Hawaii Five-0: He kauwa ke kanaka na ke aloha (Man is a slave of love)

Season 10, Episode 16: " He kauwa ke kanaka na ke aloha "

Well, that was one screwed-up Valentine's Day. Several strange love stories played out on Hawaii Five-0 Season 10 Episode 16. Danny was still struggling over the love of his life being snatched away in just one day on Hawaii FIve-0 Season 10 Episode 14. That's Danny's luck for you. He can't make it work with his ex, he can't make it work with someone new.

You Can't Save Them All

Legacies: You Can't Save Them All

Season 2, Episode 13: " You Can't Save Them All "

Saying goodbye to Kai all over again was tough, but I think we can all agree that his latest -- and likely final death -- was a slap in the face. If he had to go, it was always going to be Alaric to do the deed, but Legacies Season 2 Episode 13 found the master manipulator being outmaneuvered every step of the way. The world has changed in the years Kai has spent in the prison wo...

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...
