In Loving Virtue

Empire: In Loving Virtue

Season 5, Episode 11: " In Loving Virtue "

The Lyons may be back at the helm of Empire, but that does not mean the company is in good standing.  Empire Season 5 Episode 11 started the process of getting a cash injection for the business that has been put through the wringer of late. With shocking deaths, people fighting for power, and crooks using the company to make a pretty penny, there's a lot of bad press. 

Greenlight

The Rookie: Greenlight

Season 1, Episode 16: " Greenlight "

SPOILER ALERT! If you want to remain spoiler free you will want to go watch The Rookie Season 1 Episode 16, "Greenlight" and then come back for this review. You’ve been warned. Captain Zoe Anderson, played by Mercedes Mason, has been one of my favorite characters since the beginning of The Rookie Season 1. Anderson was comple...

Don't Take My Sunshine Away

This Is Us: Don't Take My Sunshine Away

Season 3, Episode 16: " Don't Take My Sunshine Away "

If this was the calm before the storm, oh boy are we in for one hell of a disaster. The never-ending Randall and Beth saga came to a head on This Is Us Season 3 Episode 16 as Randall went from a doting and devout husband to a massive jerk within a couple of days. Randall and Beth's marital woes have been a very prominent story throughout This Is Us Season 3, and while there...

Songs About Texas

Roswell, New Mexico: Songs About Texas

Season 1, Episode 9: " Songs About Texas "

There's a fourth alien! Max and Liz kissed! Maria and Michael got hot and heavy in the desert! Roswell, New Mexico Season 1 Episode 9 had a lot of big twists that should help advance the plot of this freshman drama, but I can't say I'm excited about any of them.  We'll start with that kiss between Max and Liz. I love a good callback, and having Shiri Appleby direct this episode...

Time Bomb

The Flash: Time Bomb

Season 5, Episode 17: " Time Bomb "

The truth is out! I repeat the truth is out! The Flash Season 5 Episode 17 gave us the moment we’ve all been waiting for. Nora confessed to being in cahoots with Eobard Thawne. At least, technically it was her confession. Sherloque was the one to drop the actual reveal. Sherloque’s character being given some significance to the plot was nice(it only took 17 ...

Less Than

Good Trouble: Less Than

Season 1, Episode 11: " Less Than "

Intersectionality was the name of the game on Good Trouble Season 1 Episode 11. The simple truth of the matter is whether you're speaking about gender, race, economic status, politics, sexuality and any social issue you can think about; if it's not intersectional, then it's flawed and incomplete. I have to be completely honest. Good Trouble has proven time and again how when it ...

Pilot

The Fix: Pilot

Season 1, Episode 1: " Let's Fix Social Media "

With the help of real-life attorney and author, Marcia Clark, The Fix Season 1 Episode 1 takes on the case of the century and adds just enough fictional twists to keep us guessing.  For those of us who lived through the OJ Simpson case, the similarities are strikingly obvious. Instead of a famed football player, we have a movie star and swap out the dead wife and boyfriend for a dead ...

Betrayal

The Resident: Betrayal

Season 2, Episode 17: " Betrayal "

The first and last five minutes of The Resident Season 2 Episode 17 were the definition of action-packed! This series knows how to make your pulse race and leave you on the edge of your seat leaning so close to the screen you risk bumping into it. While most of the hour was a bit humdrum as we awaited the real action, the last ten minutes or so of the hour made everything worth...

New Beginnings

9-1-1: New Beginnings

Season 2, Episode 11: " New Beginnings "

That was a pretty wild ride.  When an episode starts with the skin of a woman's forehead falling over her eyes, you know you are in for something crazy. And 9-1-1 Season 2 Episode 11 did not disappoint! The skin over the eyes wasn't even necessarily the wildest sight to be seen either. There was also a real-life shark on the freeway.  After a very long hiatus...

Star City 2040

Arrow: Star City 2040

Season 7, Episode 16: " Star City 2040 "

Well, if you wanted answers about the year 2040, you got a lot of them! Arrow Season 7 Episode 16 was set almost entirely in the future, and in a matter of 40 minutes, the hour delivered a lot of answers without feeling heavy with exposition. And a note to The CW: If it's not in your plans to expand the Arrowverse with the second generation of vigilantes, you need to rethink tha...

A Kiss From A Rose

Shadowhunters: A Kiss From A Rose

Season 3, Episode 14: " A Kiss From a Rose "

The perfect date for "Clace" turned into another perfect disaster. We can blame Jonathan for ruining all of our romantic hopes on Shadowhunters Season 3 Episode 14. His obsession for his sister crossed into major levels of creepiness. Gone were all the pretenses of reclaiming the Morgenstern name; he made his move, and he made it obvious. At some point, Clary should follow the le...

Switches & Stones

Charmed (2018): Switches & Stones

Season 1, Episode 15: " Switches & Stones "

This episode featured a progressively modern take on an age-old legend, the perfect story fit for a series like Charmed. Although less nuanced than it’s previous few installments, Charmed Season 1 Episode 15 continued to highlight what the series creators promised to deliver: unbridled and unapologetic feminism. This time, it got showcased through the legend of Medusa. Re...

The Dragon Slayer

God Friended Me: The Dragon Slayer

Season 1, Episode 17: " The Dragon Slayer "

If only all humans were as good as Miles.  Week by week, this series restores my faith in humanity.  Most of God Friended Me Season 1 Episode 17 focused on Miles' friend suggestion, Ben Evans, a homeless man whose run of bad luck was getting the best of him. Every encounter Miles had with Ben and his son, Max, was more emotional than the next.  Si...

Scars

The Walking Dead: Scars

Season 9, Episode 14: " Scars "

Time heals all wounds, but the scars from being branded by brainwashed psycho children remain forever. Okay, I may have taken some liberties with that quote, but the point is that The Walking Dead Season 9 Episode 14 at long last addressed the trauma Michonne was subjected to in the years following Rick's sacrifice. It was probably one of the weakest episodes in the season, but a...

You Have Reached the Voicemail of Leslie Peterson

Good Girls: You Have Reached the Voicemail of Leslie Peterson

Season 2, Episode 3: " You Have Reached the Voicemail of Leslie Peterson "

Excuse me, but did that just happen? Boomer has been the central villain since this series inception, and it didn’t seem like he was ever going to leave us, or the ladies, alone. But something remarkable happened on Good Girls Season 2 Episode 3. Mary Pat ended up being the woman to do the one thing the ladies couldn’t quite accomplish. SPOILER AL...
