A Kiss Before Dying

Magnum P.I.: A Kiss Before Dying

Season 1, Episode 18: " A Kiss Before Dying "

Katsumoto is the real thing. Katsumoto teamed up with Magnum on Magnum P.I. Season 1 Episode 18 to deliver one of the best and emotional episodes of the season so far. Not only did we get to see a vulnerable Katsumoto open up to Magnum (that ending!), but we also got a treat when the OG T.C., Roger E. Mosley, made an appearance as Booky, the Barber! ...

The Alpha

Black Lightning: The Alpha

Season 2, Episode 15: " The Book of the Apocalypse: Chapter One: The Alpha "

It's the dawn of a new day for Thunder and Lightning. Jefferson finally presented a harmonious future for the crime-fighting family on Black Lightning Season 2 Episode 15. Anissa and Jennifer will soon get to embrace their powers without any of Jefferson's control or lectures. All they need to do is agree to a few rules. Simple enough? In the world of Black Lighting, nothing ever...

Touched By A Demon

Charmed: Touched By A Demon

Season 1, Episode 14: " Secrets and Guys "

Cue obscure 90’s pop song intro here. Charmed (2018) Season 1 Episode 14 took a ride down memory lane, reminding us of all the reasons 90’s TV was so great, yet so gosh darn problematic. And what a fun ride it was. There’s nothing better than a good meta episode; the more layers, the better. Throw in some breaking of the 4th wall and you’ve bas...


Shameless: Found

Season 9, Episode 14: " Found "

Fiona Gallagher has left her family behind and is starting a new journey of her own.  Shameless Season 9 Episode 14 gave Fiona the perfect opportunity to move on with her life, well away from the South Side.  It was an ambiguous exit, for sure, but it was true to the character. If you watch Shameless online, you know that Fiona has been happy multiple times, but it's always t...


The Walking Dead: Chokepoint

Season 9, Episode 13: " Chokepoint "

The Whisperer war is officially underway. On The Walking Dead Season 9 Episode 13, Daryl, Connie, Henry, and Lydia were on the run following their escape from the Whisperers' camp, while the Kingdom attempted to deal with a threat of their own. "Chokepoint" was a terrific follow-up to The Walking Dead Season 9 Episode 12, even though it included the inexplicable introduction of a...

Stand and Deliver

Supergirl: Stand and Deliver

Season 4, Episode 14: " Stand and Deliver "

Maybe the good guys will win in the end.  Maybe they'll win if there ever is an end to this prolonged season. I keep saying this, but I'm lacking the moments that made Supergirl exciting when the series first started.  A revolution was brewing on Supergirl Season 4 Episode 14, and while Supergirl tried to keep the peace, it proved a bit difficult with Lockwo...

Slow Down, Children At Play

Good Girls: Slow Down, Children At Play

Season 2, Episode 2: " Slow Down, Children at Play "

So, Rio has eyes on Beth all the time, huh? Rio has his eyes on Beth all the time except the times she's supposed to be killing people in cold blood. Good Girls Season 2 Episode 2 continues to move the storylines forward rather quickly. There has not been a minute wasted this season, and the series has been lifted as a result. Taking care of Boomer was the numbe...

Scenes from an Italian Restaurant

God Friended Me: Scenes from an Italian Restaurant

Season 1, Episode 16: " Scenes From an Italian Restaurant "

Finally.  For a moment, it seemed like Cara and Miles were going to stay in the friends-zone on God Friended Me Season 1 Episode 16, and who could blame them? Their first date was beyond awkward.  The chemistry they've always had fizzled out, and the only thing they had in common was the God Account, which served as a buffer for some awkward silences. 

The Eternal Damsel in Distress

Days of our Lives: The Eternal Damsel in Distress

Season 44, Episode 83: " Mar 9, 2009 "

Marlena gets kidnapped so often it's become a joke. She's supposed to be this strong, smart woman -- a female psychiatrist who has been helping the citizens of Salem with their mental health issues for over 40 years. But whenever the plot demands it, she gets kidnapped or attacked and needs John to save her. Their love story is always centered around her being the damsel in distr...

Ai no i ka 'ape he mane'o no ko ka nuku (He who eats 'ape is bound to have his mouth itch)

Hawaii Five-0: Ai no i ka 'ape he mane'o no ko ka nuku (He who eats 'ape is bound to have his mouth itch)

Season 9, Episode 18: " Ai no i ka 'ape he mane'o no ko ka nuku "

Danny and Rachel getting back together has been hinted at for a good part of the season. If there was any doubt about their renewing their relationship, that was largely dispelled on Hawaii Five-0 Season 9 Episode 18. That was thanks to his standoffish mother-in-law, Amanda Savage. Joan Collins seemed to be having a great time playing Amanda, a larger-than-life ...

The Shame Game

Proven Innocent: The Shame Game

Season 1, Episode 4: " The Shame Game "

One of the things I love most about Proven Innocent is that it's not afraid to tackle hot button issues. Proven Innocent Season 1 Episode 4 took on abortion and Islamaphobia. The story couldn't come at ea better time, considering the controversy in Congress over Representative Ilhan Omar's comments about Israel and the anti-Muslim attacks against her that were not similarly decried, all ri...

The Cryptobanker

The Blacklist: The Cryptobanker

Season 6, Episode 10: " The Cryptobanker "

I need to get this off my chest before I write anything else because I am so upset (a credit to The Blacklist writers I suppose) that I can barely think straight. I hate Elizabeth Keen, and it will never change. Ever. I don't care if she somehow figures out how to save Red from death or not. I don't care how much he loves her.  She is a rotten person and nothing will convince me...

Past Tense

Blue Bloods: Past Tense

Season 9, Episode 16: " Past Tense "

Raise your hand if you DIDN'T peg Margo as a killer, or at least as a suspect, before Danny did. Blue Bloods Season 9 Episode 16 started off with her hiding in a closet and claiming to have been terrified of a killer. I thought she should have been ruled out before the cops went on a wild goose chase for other suspects. It turned out I was right, but that's okay. Danny and Maria...

Blood of Patriots

The Orville: Blood of Patriots

Season 2, Episode 10: " Blood of Patriots "

Although The Orville Season 2 Episode 10 addresses the question of forgiveness, it wasn't the context many of us expected after the conclusion of The Orville Season 2 Episode 9.  With no discernable fall-out from Isaac's return to the crew, the attention here shifted totally to the question of peace with the Krill. Mercer asks a really good question of Admiral Perry when...

The Trial of Jim Gordon

Gotham: The Trial of Jim Gordon

Season 5, Episode 9: " The Trial of Jim Gordon "

What just happened? No matter what you may have witnessed on Gotham Season 5 Episode 9, Jim Gordon did not marry Lee Thompkins. It was all a dream. It had to be. One month later placard or not, these two lovebirds are not married. I know Gotham is moving at breakneck speed. It has to now that there are only three episodes left. If anyone needed any proof, all th...
