Sex and Death

The Good Doctor: Sex and Death

Season 3, Episode 13: " Sex and Death "

What makes our lives worth living, and at what point do you elect to die rather than get medical treatment that could take away an important part of your identity? The Good Doctor Season 3 Episode 13 asked these big questions, all while giving Morgan a compelling backstory that almost, but not quite, made her sympathetic. The questions were deep, but the episode was entertaining...

The Book of Markovia

Black Lightning: The Book of Markovia

Season 3, Episode 11: " The Book of Markovia: Chapter Two: Lynn's Addiction "

The great escape of Tobias Whale has come to fruition on Black Lightning Season 3 Episode 11. But, it's not the grand farewell he or anyone expected. Lynn's determination to get her nemesis out of The Pit involved a new serum and a master plan that put her in danger if caught. She was already a target of the ASA, but her determination was stronger than their security system. (And the Markov...

Que Viene El Coco

The Outsider (US): Que Viene El Coco

Season 1, Episode 4: " A Wide Place in the Road "

We have a new theory to chew on! Given the way the mystery has shaken out during The Outsider Season 1, it's been obvious there is no way to explain what is happening without concluding that there is a supernatural force at play.  The Outsider Season 1 Episode 4 widened the scope of the mystery to give us more depth, as well as the sense that this force has been at work since ...

Parallel Trenches

Dare Me: Parallel Trenches

Season 1, Episode 5: " Parallel Trenches "

Did you know that putting a knocked-out tooth in milk could save it from dying? Well, if you weren’t aware, Dare Me Season 1 Episode 5 clued you into that nifty piece of information, as a member of the Sutton Grove cheerleading squad suffered a horrific injury and saw her teeth scattered across the mat. It was a pretty traumatic experience that we got to experience three time...

Back From the Future -- Part One

Supergirl: Back From the Future -- Part One

Season 5, Episode 11: " Back from the Future (1) "

Back from the future or journey from another Earth? Winn returned on Supergirl Season 5 Episode 11, but all was not as it seemed as it turned out to be a different Winn from the one that we all knew and loved. Thankfully, and before we knew it, our Winn returned from the future to help save the day and take down his evil doppelgänger. Was his return satifactory? Or did it leave ...

Reversal of Fortune

Power: Reversal of Fortune

Season 6, Episode 14: " Reversal of Fortune "

Have you always wanted to meet Rashad Tate's family and watch his comeback from the brink of losing it all? If the answer is yes, then Power Season 6 Episode 14 is the one for you.  And if the answer was no, well then, you probably weren't thrilled with the second-to-last episode EVER of Power which offered more Rashad Tate than we've gotten since we met the man.  ...

An Un-Birthday Present

Batwoman: An Un-Birthday Present

Season 1, Episode 11: " An Un-Birthday Present "

It's an "expect the unexpected" sort of day on Batwoman Season 1 Episode 11, and although it is stated explicitly that Kate does NOT enjoy surprises, I'm not sure anyone really appreciated their taste of the random. And while I'm enjoying the introduction of the brunette, not deranged, astrophysicist Beth Kane 2.0 from Earth who-knows-what, I can't help but suspect that, like the kitten i...

What Sorrows Are You Drowning?

Dynasty: What Sorrows Are You Drowning?

Season 3, Episode 10: " What Sorrows Are You Drowning? "

Operation save Kirby was in full effect on Dynasty Season 3 Episode 10, but the episode felt more like a filler and didn't do much in terms of progressing the overall storyline. Kirby, though an asset to the show, is a supplemental character whose rescue mission didn't need to take up a full hour.  The best part was seeing Fallon and Adam team up as they pretended to be husband...

Curse Words

Charmed: Curse Words

Season 2, Episode 10: " Heartbreak City "

There's never a dull moment at Safe Space. On Charmed (2018) Season 2 Episode 10, the Charmed Ones are thrown into a heap of unexpected conflicts.  In the midst of their magical problems, they were also forced to deal with relationship fears, past hurt, and complex feelings. The chemistry between Maggie and Jordan was explosive.  Considering the fac...

Help Me Through the Night

Grey's Anatomy: Help Me Through the Night

Season 16, Episode 10: " Help Me Through the Night (2) "

The bad news is, there is zero incentive for those who don't already watch Station 19 to continue doing so for these crossover specials. The good news is, if you opted out of the first part of the two-hour crossover special, you didn't miss much, and Grey's Anatomy Season 16 Episode 10 was the superior hour by a mile. Ironically, that doesn't even mean this installment was except...

The Kiss

A Million Little Things: The Kiss

Season 2, Episode 10: " the kiss "

We have a new mystery to obsess over. Granted, there has always been speculation that Eric was up to no good, but it didn't change how shocking it was when A Million Little Things Season 2 Episode 10 concluded with shirtless Eric, who does NOT have a scar from heart surgery. Who is he really, and why is he lying? The hour briefly picked up where A Million Littl...

This Is Why We Don't Entrust Plans to Muppet Babies

Legacies: This Is Why We Don't Entrust Plans to Muppet Babies

Season 2, Episode 10: " This is Why We Don't Entrust Plans to Muppet Babies "

We're inching closer to Chris Wood's return as Kai Parker, and for the most part, Legacies Season 2 Episode 10 felt like the perfect set-up for Lizzie and Josie's violent uncle to make his pop up.  One thing I've wondered since Legacies debuted is how the school manages students who pose threats to themselves and others.  I appreciate the way "This Is Why We Don't Entrust Pla...


Superstore: Favoritism

Season 5, Episode 13: " Favoritism "

The competiton is heating up on Superstore Season 5 Episode 13.  If there's one thing the employees of Cloud 9 never lack it's passion. At least, when it comes to anything other than doing their jobs.  But the role of Amy's assistant turned out to be a highly coveted position, and Marcus and Mateo went head to head for the gold. As the title suggests, "Favorit...

The Heroes' Journey

Supernatural: The Heroes' Journey

Season 15, Episode 10: " The Heroes' Journey "

Talk about having a bad day. On Supernatural Season 15 Episode 10 nothing was going right for the Winchester boys, but maybe there was a lesson in what was happening to them, even if they don't necessarily realize it yet. It's not that Sam and Dean's life is ever easy, but this day, their bad day was more like a normal person's bad day than the kind they usually experienc...


The Good Place: Patty

Season 4, Episode 12: " Patty "

After years of building towards this point, Eleanor and her friends landed in the real Good Place on The Good Place Season 4 Episode 12.  But is it truly everything they hoped that it would be? As it turns out, even heaven comes with a catch.  Rather than overwhelming Eleanor and her friends with more lies, betrayals, and demons, the issues with the Go...
