SVU Season 20 Episode 10 Review

Law & Order: SVU Season 20 Episode 10 Review

Season 20, Episode 10: " Shotgun "

Law & Order: SVU has seen its share of bizarre cases, but this one took the cake! Law & Order: SVU Season 20 Episode 10 featured two well-known guest stars who both suffered sexual abuse as children. Although parts of "Alta Kockers" were moving, this was one of the sillier stories SVU has had, and that's a shame Childhood sexual abuse leaves a life...


Legacies: Malivore

Season 1, Episode 5: " Malivore "

If you seek the answers, all you have to do is ask.  Alaric learned that the easy way on Legacies Season 1 Episode 5 and it made for a nice change of pace. The dryad was introduced as a villain, but by the end of the installment, it became clear she was a spiritual being who was being forced on a path of destruction thanks that pesky knife.  From the outset, ...


Tell Me a Story (US): Madness

Season 1, Episode 5: " Chapter 5: Madness "

We really need to find out where they're training hotel owners and substitute teachers these days. We've already realized that Jordan might go to surprising places after being pushed to his limit, but on Tell Me a Story Season 1 Episode 5 Nick trumped him. Something tells me he isn't your ordinary substitute teacher. How many big, bad wolves are we going to encounter on this sh...

Master of What is Mine Own

Empire: Master of What is Mine Own

Season 5, Episode 8: " Master of What is Mine Own "

Think about the children!  Everyone is fighting and a few things happened on Empire Season 5 Episode 8 to push the story forward, but the lasting images that will stick with most fans are the opening scene and the closing one.  I can't shake the image of Bella aiming the gun at her bickering family before pointing it at herself. Hopefully, the gun isn't loaded, or someone wil...

As Long As It Takes

New Amsterdam (2018): As Long As It Takes

Season 1, Episode 9: " As Long As It Takes "

Does anyone else have dust particles in their eye?  You know a show draws you in when you wish you could reach through the screen multiple times throughout an installment. I'm not saying I would have reenacted that gutwrenching Simba and Mufasa scene from The Lion King, but the temptation was there. Get up, Max! Get up!  If you thought New Amsterdam Season 1 Episode 9 would g...

Chapter Forty-One

Riverdale (US): Chapter Forty-One

Season 3, Episode 6: " Chapter Forty-One: Manhunter "

Now THAT was an intense and action-packed hour of drama! While one mystery closed its chapter, Riverdale Season 3 Episode 6 weaved new layers into the tangled web that is the Gargoyle King mystery. This darkness hooked us right from the start to that jaw-dropping twist that came from nowhere. (Seriously, that orphanage twist answered so many questions.) Riverdale Season 3 has ...

The Choice Is Yours

All American: The Choice Is Yours

Season 1, Episode 6: " The Choice is Yours "

The relationship drama is reaching the boiling point, and it's about to blow.  The love triangle took a new turn on All American Season 1 Episode 6 when Layla planted one on Spencer, and he responded in kind.  Of course, Olivia just happened to witness the entire thing.  Olivia knew this was coming. It's not like it was hard to read that Layla ha...

Kids These Days

Modern Family: Kids These Days

Season 10, Episode 8: " Kids These Days "

On Modern Family Season 10 Episode 8, sex is the subject matter, as is political correctness. It might've been funny if it weren't so sadly true. Usually, I'm okay with comedies taking real life and weaving it in such a way where it's funny. Where else are they going to get their material? But this wasn't one of those times. The political correctness ...

Fight or Flight

A Million Little Things: Fight or Flight

Season 1, Episode 8: " Fight or Flight "

When it comes to which character is the most loathsome on this series, it rotates between Eddie, Delilah, and Ashley.  That didn't change during A Million Little Things Season 1 Episode 8  but topping the list was Ashley, hands down. At least Eddie has charming moments, and Delilah still needs work, but Ashley was the absolute worst.

The Hawke

The Rookie: The Hawke

Season 1, Episode 6: " The Hawke "

It's hard to watch your idols fall. And Officer Jeremy Hawke fell hard on The Rookie Season 1 Episode 6 and he could have taken Nolan down with him.  It was a little difficult to determine why Nolan was so enamored by "The Hawke." Nolan certainly isn't a testosterone junkie, so was it just that Jeremy saw potential in him at the Academy when no one else did? P...

The Sange

Black Lightning: The Sange

Season 2, Episode 7: " The Book of Blood: Chapter Three: The Sange "

If you thought Black Friday brought on the fights, those shopping arguments have nothing on the Thunder vs. Looker climax. The brewing battle between Freeland's rising hero against South Freeland's racist corrupter finally came to a head on Black Lightning Season 2 Episode 7. Metahuman powers were their weapons, the abandoned mall was their setting, and victory was on the line. T...

O Come, All Ye Thankful

The Flash: O Come, All Ye Thankful

Season 5, Episode 7: " O Come, All Ye Thankful "

Someone hold my turkey leftovers, I need a tissue. It may have come a week late, but The Flash Season 5 Episode 7, otherwise known as “The Thanksgiving Episode,” was well worth the wait. This episode, although it did include a weekly meta-villain, was one of the most character driven and emotional episodes the show has ever done. There is just something about family dyn...

The Slabside Redemption

Arrow: The Slabside Redemption

Season 7, Episode 7: " The Slabside Redemption "

Welcome to Shawshank ... I mean Slabside!  Oliver Queen channeled his inner Andy Dufresne and went all Shawshank on not only Diaz's ass but multiple inmates asses as well.  As soon as I learned what the title was going to be for Arrow Season 7 Episode 7, I knew I'd be in trouble. Shawshank Redemption is one of my favorite movies of all-time, and "The Slabside Redemption" was ...

Merry Ex-Mas

9-1-1: Merry Ex-Mas

Season 2, Episode 10: " Merry Ex-Mas "

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Literally.  Christmas themed hours always bring the feels, and 9-1-1 Season 2 Episode 10 was no exception. They were daring rescues, one cute little kid and the best proposal of all time.  And then there was that ending. Boy oh boy, do we really have to wait until spring to get some answers? After the saddest Hallowee...


The Good Doctor: Empathy

Season 2, Episode 9: " Empathy "

There were death, betrayals, engaging cases of the week, and some stunning twists thrown in for good measure.  The Good Doctor Season 2 Episode 9 had all the makings of a midseason finale, but there's still one more episode to go before this ABC series says goodbye until the new year.  The Good Doctor has proven time and time again that it is willing to take risks in its stor...
