Lonely Hearts

NCIS: Lonely Hearts

Season 17, Episode 15: " Lonely Hearts "

It never hurts to approach a holiday from a different angle. Cupid appeared to be murdering sailors on NCIS Season 17 Episode 15. Of course, that wasn't the case, but the truth was even stranger. It even involved Phil Brooks, Gibbs' only non-work friend, last seen causing chaos for Gibbs and Fornell on NCIS Season 16 Episode 4.  Don Lake, who plays P...


Project Blue Book: Hopkinsville

Season 2, Episode 4: " Hopkinsville "

Quinn was right to ask why alien visits only happen in the woods. The woods may keep secrets, but on Project Blue Book Season 2 Episode 4, they also hide lies. We probably knew from the beginning that Jimmy J wasn't telling the truth. The circus man from the backwoods loved telling stories, and whether he was telling his tall tale for some extra dough or as a way...

A Hell of a Week

This Is Us: A Hell of a Week

Season 4, Episode 13: " A Hell of a Week (3) "

Kate may not be everybody's favorite character, but she certainly shined in her own story. This Is Us Season 4 Episode 13 showed Kate at three different stages of life, allowing viewers to see how she developed into what she is today and how hard the situation with Jack and Toby is for her. It was equal parts heartbreaking and harrowing and was an effective end to the single epi...

In The Graveyard

New Amsterdam: In The Graveyard

Season 2, Episode 13: " In the Graveyard "

Death was at the forefront of the hour. Once again, New Amsterdam Season 2 Episode 13 did a beautiful job of exploring this inevitable thing we'll experience. The series continues to be thought-provoking and poignant addressing these topics in such a creative and moving manner. More than before, this season has delved deep into exploring so many topics without c...

Eye Of The Needle

Prodigal Son: Eye Of The Needle

Season 1, Episode 14: " Eye of the Needle "

It was the Whitly women's time to shine, but it took an unexpected turn by the end of the hour. The Whitlys brought in a case of their own on Prodigal Son Season 1 Episode 14, and they were integral in resolving it. But one of them might have paid the ultimate price. No matter how many breaks Malcolm attempts to take, his life work will be solving crime. He can'...

Only Time Will Tell

All American: Only Time Will Tell

Season 2, Episode 12: " Only Time Will Tell "

Spencer couldn't catch any breaks, let alone passes. He may be a hero in both Crenshaw and Beverly Hills but Spencer discovered he's just damaged goods to college-football recruiters on All American Season 2 Episode 12. Yeah, that sucks. But it's just as well that Spencer learned the reality of college football. A school has 25 scholarships a year to give to rec...

Return Trip

Manifest: Return Trip

Season 2, Episode 6: " Return Trip "

When Michaela uttered "what the hell is happening" at the end of Manifest Season 2 Episode 6, I've never related to anything more in my life.  It's comforting to know that the characters are just as lost and confused as the majority of the audience. The Callings have made it clear that they want Ben, Mic, Saanvi, and Zeke to "save the passengers," but these scenarios have taken...

The Book of Markovia

Black Lightning: The Book of Markovia

Season 3, Episode 13: " The Book of Markovia: Chapter Four: Grab the Strap "

The mission to save Lynn is a go! Jefferson has his team set and ready to fight on Black Lightning Season 3 Episode 13. Some of them aren't properly trained and a few of them are unpredictable with their powers. But, they've got the determination and drive to do whatever it takes to bring Lynn back home. If they weren't facing a super-powerful metahuman like Gravedigger, this cou...


The Good Doctor: Influence

Season 3, Episode 14: " Influence "

Being a successful person with autism can be a double-edged sword. The Good Doctor Season 3 Episode 14 again nailed it with Shaun's decision about whether or not to do a PR interview for the hospital. This was only one of the many dilemmas he faced, but man, was it a strong one. Shaun was only thrust into the spotlight to begin with because Kylie decided to feat...

The One About the Yiddish Vampire

The Outsider (US): The One About the Yiddish Vampire

Season 1, Episode 6: " A Time to Run "

It was only a matter of time before one of the heroes at the wheel of the story got put in danger.  Holly presented her findings to the masses on The Outsider Season 1 Episode 6, and it caused an even bigger divide among everyone involved with the case.  That was to be expected, but it still made for a difficult watch.  Hearing that the person who's behind th...

Code Red

Dare Me: Code Red

Season 1, Episode 6: " Code Red "

Will the real Colette French please stand up? It’s been easy to feel sympathy for the young wife and mother who carries the world on her shoulders, there’s something else brewing inside of her that is far from meek and overwhelmed. And it was on full display during Dare Me Season 1 Episode 6 when Colette’s motives were called into question. Beth has been ...

He waha kou o ka he'e (Yours is the mouth of an octopus)

Hawaii Five-0: He waha kou o ka he'e (Yours is the mouth of an octopus)

Season 10, Episode 15: " He waha kou o ka he'e "

That was a pretty quick turnaround for Siobhan. Grover's niece returned just in time to be abducted on Hawaii Five-0 Season 10 Episode 15. Siobhan only told Grover of her desire to become a cop such as him back on Hawaii Five-0 Season 10 Episode 8. That seemed like a short while in real-time (roughly 2 1/2 months), but this is TV time so who can truly say how mu...

Needs to Know

Charmed: Needs to Know

Season 2, Episode 12: " Awakened "

This week's episode was packed full of the action, drama, and cliff-hanger moments I've come to love! On Charmed (2018) Season 2 Episode 12, we gain a much better understanding of the relationship between Whitelighters and Darklighters.  It makes sense that Whitelighters and Darklighters should not be able to kill each other. We all have light and dark within us that we have t...


The Bold Type: Marathon

Season 4, Episode 3: " Marathon "

Life is a marathon. Love, career, marriage, acceptance, and sex -- They all require stamina, hard work and patience. On The Bold Type Season 4 Episode 3 while the stage is set for The New York City Marathon, The Bold Babes and the rest of Scarlet are learning how trying their own journeys are.  Who is one step closer to their finish line? Read our review as we discuss!  ...

Kai Parker Screwed Us

Legacies: Kai Parker Screwed Us

Season 2, Episode 12: " Kai Parker Screwed Us "

That was refreshing.  Legacies Season 2 Episode 12 threw it all the way back to The Vampire Diaries, delivering an installment that paid homage to the show that started the franchise, while also progressing a plot that was one of the franchise's best.  Love him or hate him, Kai Parker makes for good TV, and that's mostly due to the way Chris Wood embodies the character with ev...
