For Whom The Bell Tolls

Station 19: For Whom The Bell Tolls

Season 2, Episode 16: " For Whom The Bell Tolls "

Funerals for servicemen and women are as beautiful as they are tragic.  Lucas Ripley was laid to rest on Station 19 Season 2 Episode 16, and the crew handled it in different ways. Naturally, Vic had the hardest time of all of them. It was a few days after Ripley's tragic death, and the station was gearing up for his funeral, but Vic was adamant about not attend...

SVU Season 20 Episode 23 Review

Law & Order: SVU: SVU Season 20 Episode 23 Review

Season 20, Episode 23: " Assumptions "

Law & Order: SVU often takes stories from the news, but three at once? Law & Order: SVU Season 20 Episode 23 attempted to tackle the Jussie Smollet story, the claims of anti-Semitism against Representative Ilhan Omar, and the Covington High scandal all at once. I give them kudos for taking on tough issues in these emotionally charged political times. But the resulting st...

Drawn to the Blood

Grey's Anatomy: Drawn to the Blood

Season 15, Episode 24: " Drawn to the Blood "

It's that time again! Finale time is always an eventful, stirring period for many of our favorite series; however, you can trust Grey's to be on another level.  It was the case with  Grey's Anatomy Season 15 Episode 24, which was a damn great penultimate episode of the season even if I didn't care for some of the developments. We want the drama, and the series...

Dead Lift

iZombie: Dead Lift

Season 5, Episode 2: " Dead Lift "

After a lackluster premiere, iZombie returned truer to form with an hour which had Liv on brains, two tragic deaths, and a whole lot of fake news.  And ever prescient vibe from iZombie Season 5 Episode 2 is the city is on borrowed time. It's on the cusp of war with an escalation of tension between zombies and humans. However, there is the matter of DC itching to nuke the entir...


Chicago PD: Sacrifice

Season 6, Episode 20: " Sacrifice "

Ruzek and Upton have called it quits on Chicago PD Season 6 Episode 20.  I can hear all the fans rejoicing in the distance.  And though I know this is an unpopular opinion, I'm a little heartbroken about it.   I've grown to appreciate the dynamic between Upton and Adam and found myself rooting for them throughout their many ups and downs.  But I'...

College Confidential

Whiskey Cavalier: College Confidential

Season 1, Episode 11: " College Confidential "

Standish got to run point on his first mission.  The team went to college and had a great time on campus on Whiskey Cavalier Season 1 Episode 11, but it was Standish's hour to show off. The kid did a good job and made Frankie and Will proud in the end. Whiskey Cavalier is cheesy, fun, and most of the time it's entertaining. However, one of the biggest frustrati...

Chapter Eighty-Eight

Jane The Virgin: Chapter Eighty-Eight

Season 5, Episode 7: " Chapter Eighty-Eight "

Montana was weird.  I expected it to be weird ... but not that weird.  When Jane the Virgin Season 5 first began and Michael's amnesia backstory got revealed, I was excited to explore a little piece of Jason's life. But upon arrival in Montana on Jane the Virgin Season 5 Episode 7, I wanted nothing more than to go home and cuddle up to Rafael.  It ...

The Dark Secret of Harvest House

Riverdale (US): The Dark Secret of Harvest House

Season 3, Episode 21: " Chapter Fifty-Six: The Dark Secret of Harvest House "

If one thing was made perfectly clear after Riverdale Season 3 Episode 21, it's that most people don't leave The Farm in one piece. Enlightenment from this cult doesn't come without a price. We always figured that The Farm was up to no good with their chants about togetherness and their brainwashing. What Betty discovered, on the other hand, was new levels of deception that made Edgar Ever...

New Orleans Season 5 Episode 23 Review

NCIS: New Orleans: New Orleans Season 5 Episode 23 Review

Season 5, Episode 23: " The River Styx (1) "

You can never go wrong with having a small local law-enforcement team invade a foreign country with which it's largely unfamiliar to accomplish a near-impossible goal. No wonder Pride and company didn't complete their mission on NCIS: New Orleans Season 5 Episode 23. The good news is that since this clash-with-Apollyon storyline is already going to be two parts, maybe it won't s...

This Is Not the End

New Amsterdam: This Is Not the End

Season 1, Episode 21: " This Is Not the End "

Hopefully, you bought Kleenex in bulk since you may have gone through more than one box after New Amsterdam Season 1 Episode 21.  The penultimate finale was infuriating, heartbreaking, and inspiring. In other words, it was another quality hour of one of the best new series of the year. After this eventful hour, New Amsterdam is going to have a hell of a season finale. ...

Red Sun Rising

The 100: Red Sun Rising

Alpha is proving itself to be a more dangerous moon than expected, mostly because of the real danger that our favorite characters are facing. Themselves. During The 100 Season 6 Episode 2, the eclipse issue becomes a full-fledged problem when the characters on the ground start to turn on one another.

Choosing to Hope

The Village (2019): Choosing to Hope

Season 1, Episode 8: " Choosing To Hope "

It's Christmas time in the city.  The Village Season 1 Episode 8 was all about the holiday season, and what an eventful holiday it turned out to be.  With Katie still unwilling to give her mother the time of day, Sarah was spiraling. And it's getting increasingly harder to watch.  It makes perfect sense why Katie is angry at Sarah, but it's frustrating to see...

...and Executioner

NCIS: ...and Executioner

Season 16, Episode 22: " ...and Executioner "

Nobody puts Gibbs on blast.  On NCIS Season 16 Episode 22, another bomb was dropped about Gibbs, and the team started to question their leader in the lead-up to a stunning reveal.  We already knew that Gibbs would move mountains to save his family. There was not question about that.  We also were already in the know about him killing the man who killed his fa...

Maggie's Drawers

The Code: Maggie's Drawers

Season 1, Episode 5: " Maggie's Drawers "

This show is just packed with ethical dilemmas, isn't it? Col. Turnbull faced the most difficult decision, choosing the good of the many over the good of her family on The Code Season 1 Episode 5. What started out largely as a trial of Maya ended up becoming so much more. Glenn wanted to hand Maya what she considered to be an impossible decision, in part to test...


When Calls the Heart: Surprise

Season 6, Episode 5: " Surprise "

Does anyone know why When Calls the Heart Season 6 Episode 5 was titled, "Surprise"?  I can't quite figure out what the surprise was, but there are many possibilities. It could be referring to Allie, Nathan's niece, or it could be referring to the black gold found on Jesse's land or it could be about Bill's surprise offer or it could be surprising that Bouchard is, well, alway...
