The relationships on Good Trouble are complicated. Both sisters are in interesting places in their relationships on Good Trouble Season 2 Episode 16, but have they reached a point of no return in them? Fortunately, Davia's storyline didn't pertain to her romantic relationship, but it was no less convoluted. The hour revisited her trials as an educator teaching minority children with different life experiences than her. It was better this time around. Davia has alway...]]>

<![CDATA[Acting Dean]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/The-Magicians/Season-5/episode-7/reviews/Acting-Dean
Even though we all saw it coming, a little piece of me hoped I was wrong. I wanted Seb to be a decent guy, mostly for Eliot's sake, but after The Magicians Season 5 Episode 7 that seems impossible. How can a ruler who's creating pillaging monsters that attack and kill his subjects be anything but a despot, as Margo would put it? All the writing on the wall has been there from the beginning, but I did hope there was some sort of explanation or ulterior motive like there was...]]>

<![CDATA[Wheels Down]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Criminal-Minds/Season-15/episode-9/reviews/Wheels-Down
Feb. 19, 2020, marked the end of an era. After 324 episodes over 15 seasons, Criminal Minds drew to a close with a two-part finale, Criminal Minds Season 15 Episode 9 and Criminal Minds Season 15 Episode 10. Suffice it to say, we're unlikely to see anything like it again. Criminal Minds proved that unstable serial killers could be brought into America's living rooms. Well, at least for an hour a week. No, more than an hour, thanks to cable. No, make that as much as yo...]]>

<![CDATA[Sabbath]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/New-Amsterdam/Season-2/episode-14/reviews/Sabbath
Ryan Eggold made his directorial debut on his series. How do you think he did? It's always impressive when one of the actors juggles roles both in front of and behind the camera for an installment, and on New Amsterdam Season 2 Episode 14, Eggold pulled it off without a hitch. After a handful of serious and at times morose installments, it was a welcome reprieve having some of New Amsterdam's trademark humor back in large doses. The humorous hours are among the best. They c...]]>

<![CDATA[A Head of Her Time]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/DC-s-Legends-of-Tomorrow/Season-5/episode-4/reviews/A-Head-of-Her-Time
A little partying never killed anybody, right? Well, it turns out that if you're under a spell that makes you party for days, death might just fall into your lap. Marie Antoinette, who was strangely played by Courtney Ford with no explanation of why she looked like Nora, was the latest Encore on DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 5 Episode 4, who liked to kill her enemies by partying them to death. However, Marie was not the star of the hour as tensions between some of the Legends bo...]]>

<![CDATA[Ephemera]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/NCIS/Season-17/episode-16/reviews/Ephemera
This episode was just what the doctor ordered. Literally. Ducky was back for the first time in way too long on NCIS Season 17 Episode 16. Why not, since the case involved mystery and history, and helping out the team that he loves? It was hard not to feel for Art, who didn't have anything to live for, other than his dog, and he even made arrangements for his pet to be looked after. He was dying from a particularly nasty cancer. He lost the love of his life nearly 50 yea...]]>

<![CDATA[Brothers, Babies, and Breakdowns]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/The-Conners/Season-2/episode-13/reviews/Brothers-Babies-and-Breakdowns
It was a big day for the Conner family. The Lunch Box finally had its grand opening thanks in large part to Dan doing much of the work pro bono to get the building in shape.  As far as I'm concerned, that man deserves free hugs, free stew, and free dessert to go along with it! It seemed odd that The Lunch Box reopening took a back seat to other stories on The Conners Season 2 Episode 13, and they were both storylines I never saw coming. First up was Ben wanting a baby...]]>

<![CDATA[The Men In Black]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Project-Blue-Book/Season-2/episode-5/reviews/The-Men-In-Black
The CIA can do whatever they want. And on Project Blue Book Season 2 Episode 5, it seems that Harding and Valentine are shaking in their boots. Did they ever expect someone would challenge their authority? Before that even happened, Hynek got up close and personal with the Men in Black, and even became a temporary member of their secret club. The battle now seems to be about the real truth between the people "in the know" and the narrative that the Air Force and the CIA...]]>

<![CDATA[The Cabin]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/This-Is-Us/Season-4/episode-14/reviews/The-Cabin
Families are complicated, especially during crises This Is Us Season 4 Episode 14 made that clear. The various events at the cabin demonstrated how serious problems could bring old wounds to the surface and bond family members tighter together. The Big Three had their issues with each other but were there when it counted, especially when life interfered with their plans. As it so often does masterfully, This Is Us weaved together past and present, using the cabin as a focal...]]>

<![CDATA[Last Shot]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/The-Resident/Season-3/episode-15/reviews/Last-Shot
Can we talk about Randolph Bell's glow-up? Throughout a season and a half, Bell has quietly become one of the best characters of the series, and the most evolved. Not only did The Resident Season 3 Episode 15 highlight him and his growth, but it also provided more insight into the man behind the mask. The Resident was back with another strong hour and the highly-anticipated conclusion to the 3B Life saga. Sometimes it feels like the show is burning through some of its plot...]]>

<![CDATA[Death's Door]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Prodigal-Son/Season-1/episode-15/reviews/Death-s-Door-43209
Bless his heart, Malcolm managed to annoy all of the women in his life. It has to be some form of record for him. But Prodigal Son Season 1 Episode 15, was an interesting look at Malcolm's relationships with all of those women as well as his father. And yeah, complicated feelings aside, aren't we all glad Martin has survived his ordeal? It was never a matter of if Martin would die or not. It's doubtful anyone believed he would, so it's partly why the events of Prodigal Son ...]]>

<![CDATA[Lights Out]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/The-New-Pope/Season-1/episode-6/reviews/Lights-Out-43208
Things took a turn for the strange on The New Pope Season 1 Episode 6. I don't want to bash the series, but it's taken a cerebral turn were you almost need access to a secret code to understand because the way the story is being told is hard to follow and understand. In essence, WTF is going on? We're going to skip over Lenny's apparent supernatural abilities and the bizarre cockroach priest Leopold for now and focus on Esther. She's decided that her new mission in life...]]>

<![CDATA[The Art of Peer Pressure]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/All-American/Season-2/episode-13/reviews/The-Art-of-Peer-Pressure
Spencer is learning the very hard lesson of success not coming easy. Crenshaw's golden boy found the road back to football stardom to be a difficult one on All American Season 2 Episode 13. First, he got to watch Coach Baker's Beverly High team becoming a finely tuned machine ... without him. That's because, regardless of how hard he pushed himself, he hadn't yet been cleared to practice.  So it was solitary time in the weight room for Spencer as he rehabbed the should...]]>

<![CDATA[Emergency Exit]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Manifest/Season-2/episode-7/reviews/Emergency-Exit
When Adrian warned Isaiah that there would be "another miracle," he didn't realize how far his believer would be willing to go to become a "returned" and prove the miracle of Flight 828 exists on Manifest Season 2 Episode 7. Every "save the passengers" Calling has been building up to this moment, and by the end of the hour, everyone's lives were affected and changed as a result.  Isaiah, who many of us believed was an X'er, turned out to be a devoted believer ready to die and transc...]]>

Shaun choosing Carly was always too good to last, but this latest wrinkle is ridiculous. It was bad enough that Morgan spent all of The Good Doctor Season 3 Episode 15 planting seeds in both Shaun and Carly's heads about how Carly needs to be jealous of Lea. All it took was Shaun and Lea having one happy moment for Carly to decide that Morgan was right and... break up with Shaun over something that only exists in her head. Please. This nonsense should have been settled a lon...]]>

Zoey finally found that she's got the music in her on Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist Season 1 Episode 2. My previous wish of Jane Levy making her musical debut has been answered.  She was shaking, moving, and grooving to the beat of I've Got the Music in Me in what seemed like an out-of-body experience during a nightmarish dream. Following her recent promotion to team leader, her need for Ctrl (control) was on the upswing. It was cleverly symbolized by the "Everything i...]]>

The ladies have finally returned! And they’re back doing the thing they sort of do well ... scheming! When Good Girls Season 3 Episode 1 begins, it appears the ladies have forged new career paths, squeaky clean professions that garner a paycheck or in Annie’s case a boatload of legitimate cash. But looks can be very deceiving, and it didn't take long to find out why the ladies each went for those particular jobs. You have to love a good time jump that doesn’t change ...]]>

We were promised a death. And we got one. Dare Me Season 1 Episode 7 took us to Regionals, where the ladies competed and the relationship between Addy and Beth crumbled. Potentially for good. The squad rolls into Regionals ready to make a statement, and the girls don’t even seem that stressed. Everyone but Addy that is. While all the girls are getting into their shenanigans, she’s content to hang back and stay above the debauchery. And let's be real, she much pr...]]>

<![CDATA[Back From the Future -- Part Two]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Supergirl/Season-5/episode-12/reviews/Back-From-the-Future-Part-Two
Winn Schott is amazing. Why did he ever leave? Winn saved the day on Supergirl Season 5 Episode 12, and it was as if he never left. He stopped his evil counterpart from killing DEO agents and gave Kara some amazing advice, even though she refused to take it. Winn was the best part of an episode that did little to move the story forward and showcased the same problems our Super Friends have been dealing with for months. Winn's reconnection with his father was the strongest st...]]>

It was guest-stars-galore night when NCIS: Los Angeles returned for the first time in ages. Katherine Casillas, Nicole DeChamps, and a familiar Chinese shell corporation all turned up on NCIS: Los Angeles Season 11 Episode 14. It made for a fun, bouncy episode, with nothing too heavy weighing down the action. There was no Hetty sighting, unfortunately, which is the new normal, I'm afraid. But Nell did perform a Hetty-like act, tossing incriminating evidence into the inc...]]>

<![CDATA[Take Your Choice]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Batwoman/Season-1/episode-12/reviews/Take-Your-Choice
While Batwoman Season 1 Episode 12 answers some questions, it also left a lot on the table. In the original series order, this would have been the season's penultimate episode, the set up for the finale. As such, it does a good job rehashing some of the more memorable moments so far. There's a few specific things I am particularly grateful for: one, they didn't try to tie it in with Valentine's Day; two, Kate made a definitive (and sensible) choic; and three, Mary got to f...]]>

<![CDATA[The Princess and the Hacker]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/God-Friended-Me/Season-2/episode-13/reviews/The-Princess-and-the-Hacker
What a great episode, not only to bring us back into the God Friended Me orbit after such a lengthy hiatus but also to celebrate Valentine's Day and love.  Much of Miles' mission to find out who is behind the God Account was put on the backburner on God Friended Me Season 2 Episode 13, and the episode was better and stronger because of it.  Without that added concern, Miles, Cara, and Rakesh were able to focus on their friend suggestion, spend time together, and most importantly, e...]]>

<![CDATA[Fog of War]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Blue-Bloods/Season-10/episode-14/reviews/Fog-of-War-43197
If there's one thing you can learn from Blue Bloods, it's that cops take it seriously when they have to shoot to kill. On Blue Bloods Season 10 Episode 14, both Jamie and the officer who pulled the trigger blamed themselves for the accidental death of a fellow officer, while Frank struggled to find the right words to say about the situation. It made for one of the most emotional episodes of Blue Bloods in a while. There was plenty of high drama, but my favorite scene was th...]]>

Well, that was one screwed-up Valentine's Day. Several strange love stories played out on Hawaii Five-0 Season 10 Episode 16. Danny was still struggling over the love of his life being snatched away in just one day on Hawaii FIve-0 Season 10 Episode 14. That's Danny's luck for you. He can't make it work with his ex, he can't make it work with someone new. Add me to the list of viewers wondering why more of an effort hasn't been made to find the distracted driver who con...]]>

<![CDATA[You Can't Save Them All]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Legacies/Season-2/episode-13/reviews/You-Can-t-Save-Them-All
Saying goodbye to Kai all over again was tough, but I think we can all agree that his latest -- and likely final death -- was a slap in the face. If he had to go, it was always going to be Alaric to do the deed, but Legacies Season 2 Episode 13 found the master manipulator being outmaneuvered every step of the way. The world has changed in the years Kai has spent in the prison world, and he should have practiced what he preached by going on the offensive the moment he arrived at the s...]]>

Self-love is essential. It is so easy to get caught up in relationships and careers and forget about self-care, but to thrive, our happiness has to come first.  The vibrator fairy stopped by the Scarlet offices on The Bold Type Season 4 Episode 4. The ladies of Scarlet were taking a little "me" time and being reminded just how beneficial focusing on yourself can be and when it is time to focus on someone else. Read on as we discuss just how pleasurable the experience was for eve...]]>

That was a different direction! We know to expect the unexpected with this series, but on The Sinner Season 3 Episode 2, the tables were turned at the end of the hour. I'm beginning to get a very The Sinner Season 1 vibe from Jamie. When Cora became a killer during the first season, it seemed out of left field because she was a happily wed young mother. As her history unfolded, an entirely different picture came to light about the woman she once was. But while Cora ...]]>

Was David Arquette the right man to play the off-kilter pedophile on Deputy Season 1 Episode 7? Maybe it was just me, but he played the part with almost cartoonish villainy which put a strain on the credibility of that story. Of course, the woman who played his wife did the same, but they were minor quibbles in an hour that reflected Deputy's views on parenting, fatherhood, and mentoring, in general. It's the first time that a case didn't relate almost directly to any of th...]]>

Well, it finally happened. After over two seasons, I finally felt an emotional connection to Jack. There have been moments here and there where I sympathesized with the guy, but Station 19 Season 3 Episode 4 knocked it out of the park. Now I am officially on #TeamJack, and maybe even weirdly on #TeamJack when it comes to him and Andy.  After a devasting and heart-wrenching, last time on Station 19 Season 3 Episode 3, this episode continued the trend of me needing to h...]]>

Adrian Pimento returns with a bang this week on Brooklyn Nine-Nine.  Or maybe that was a boom. Is that a bomb strapped to his chest? Nope, it's just his watch.  Jason Mantzoukas graces our screens once again with a storyline perfectly suited to his acting strengths.  He's completely out of his mind. Ever since I binged The Good Place and got to know Mantzoukas as Janet's boyfriend/son Derek, I've developed a new appreciation for his acting style.  Everyone on Brookly...]]>
