What's the worst thing about breaking up with someone you work with?  Having to continue to see them at work and act like everything is fine. Nothing felt fine for John Nolan and Lucy Chen on The Rookie Season 1 Episode 5. I love John and Lucy. I want to hug both of them because they're hurting and yet I wonder if they really need to be. Did this breakup happen because of Bishop's meddling or because the timing wasn't right for them as a couple? Lucy explained prec...]]>

<![CDATA[Three Dots]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/New-Amsterdam/Season-1/episode-8/reviews/Three-Dots
You have to love a show that finds their niche and sticks to it.  New Amsterdam has found a formula that works best for them, and as a result, it has become one of the strongest contenders for best new shows of the Fall.  New Amsterdam Season 1 Episode 8 was another heartwarming installment that left you dabbing at your eyes or at least considering it more than once. Yes, there was an allergy flare up, no judgment, please!  While the doctors get attached to patients on t...]]>

<![CDATA[Six Thanksgivings]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/This-Is-Us/Season-3/episode-8/reviews/Six-Thanksgivings
Six Thanksgivings. Four great stories.  This Is Us Season 3 Episode 8 attempted one of its biggest feats to date to tell six cohesive, individual stories.  And while I admire the attempt, six was just too many, especially since only four of them made an impact.  While I have been invested in the Vietnam story so far, it just didn't fit in with every other story being told. The Thanksgiving element in the story didn't add nearly as much as it did with the others.  ...]]>

<![CDATA[The Icicle Cometh]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/The-Flash/Season-5/episode-6/reviews/The-Icicle-Cometh
Well, schrap. I did not see that one coming. Although The Flash Season 5 Episode 6 was a little slower paced than the previous few, it had no shortages of twists and turns. All of which paid off in full. It seems as if Helbing’s method of madness this season is to mix and match the team as much as possible, splitting them up to divide and conquer. Every character ends up with different partners each episode, and it’s working. Unlike in the past, we’re getting to see new dyna...]]>

<![CDATA[New Orleans Season 5 Episode 8 Review]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/NCIS-New-Orleans/Season-5/episode-8/reviews/New-Orleans-Season-5-Episode-8-Review
OK, maybe expansion can be a good thing. Another interesting, likely recurring character was introduced on NCIS: New Orleans Season 5 Episode 8. Mateo checked all the boxes: A stellar student and a hard worker who was willing to do the right thing. In this case, doing the right thing was serving as a confidential informer against the Aztec Kings, the local branch of the same gang that he sought to escape by fleeing north from his homeland. Granted, he made the mistake ...]]>

<![CDATA[The Perdi]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Black-Lightning/Season-2/episode-6/reviews/The-Perdi
We have the origin of the silver liquid. (And it's creepier than we realized!) Looker, the new Big Bad on the block, has built her army in South Freeland on Black Lightning Season 2 Episode 6, and all she wants are Aniyah's babies. Everything about Looker gives us goosebumps; her aloof and cold attitude is nothing like we've seen yet. Anissa and Jefferson will need to prepare themselves for a fight. This new metahuman threat already has a group ready to defend her control. "...]]>

<![CDATA[Stories]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/The-Good-Doctor/Season-2/episode-8/reviews/Stories
Medical dramas have a knack for falling into repetitive circles,  but The Good Doctor Season 2 Episode 8 brought two thrilling cases to the table, proving there's no creative fatigue on the horizon.  There was also more heartbreak for Glassman as he continued his recovery. Simply put, it was a run of the mill episode of this ABC hit, and it did not waste one minute.  I have to admit; Dawn rubbed me the wrong way the moment she leaned in for a kiss after commenting on how yo...]]>

<![CDATA[Heart In A Box]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/The-Resident/Season-2/episode-8/reviews/Heart-In-A-Box
All the things were happening during that installment.  But The Resident Season 2 Episode 8 confirmed that QuoVadis is shady AF, Gordan is the worst, and Julian didn't know about any of it.  So basically, it left most of us enraged, but not surprised.  The question for most of the season was whether or not Julian knew how shady Gordon was. It was hard to determine how much knowledge she had because she often came across manipulative, pushy, and opportunistic. Plus, Conra...]]>

<![CDATA[Hen Begins]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/9-1-1/Season-2/episode-9/reviews/Hen-Begins
One of the best aspects of 9-1-1 is the strength of its ensemble. The main characters are people you enjoy seeing navigate the crazy streets of LA together.  Taking away much of the core cast during an episode is risky, no matter what the show, but one thing no other show has right now is the power of Aisha Hinds.  9-1-1 Season 2 Episode 9 works on every possible level because of her commitment to telling us the story of Henrietta Wilson. And in a season full of marvelous storytell...]]>

The band is back together, just without superhero costumes.  Despite the lameness of everyone wearing their normal clothes instead of their vigilante gear, Arrow Season 7 Episode 6 reminded Team Arrow that when they work together, they get results.  Team Arrow really should've learned this lesson already, primarily since the rift that happened in Team Arrow on Arrow Season 6 was the reason Diaz has been able to reak so much havoc.  Superhero squads just don't learn from the...]]>

<![CDATA[The Ties That Bind]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Magnum-P-I/Season-1/episode-9/reviews/The-Ties-That-Bind-41581
It was easy to empathize with Amanda's struggle as she tried to match Higgins' extraordinary flexibility on Magnum P.I. Season 1 Episode 9. If I even attempted to bend back the way Higgins did on that mat, I'd be stuck that way for a long, long time. But the whole point of the exercise wasn't to teach Amanda the fine art of yoga but to try to get her to open up about what happened during her captivity. When Magnum has a hunch, he's usually right, and he had a hunch ...]]>

How do you help a dead guy? That's what Miles, Cara, and Rakesh tried to figure out on God Friended Me Season 1 Episode 8. The God account could have easily suggested Alfie Collins instead of the late Sal, but there wouldn't be any mystery about that, nor would our trio of detectives find all the breadcrumbs that made this story so worthwhile.  Like Miles said, "you never know where a good story might go."  The God account led them to Sal's estate sale where they fou...]]>

For a kinder, lighter, more intuitive Doctor era, Doctor Who Season 11 Episode 7 continues an odd trend that leads Team T.A.R.D.I.S. into adventures involving more casualties than I'm used to in the Who-verse. Related: Get Britbox via Prime Video Channels for the biggest streaming collection of TV from BBC & ITV...ever.

Sororities are like, so totally bitchin, right?! At least, that's what Charmed (2018) Season 1 Episode 6 wanted us to believe.  Or, I think that's what they wanted us to believe.  It's not that the episode wasn't enjoyable. It may have been Charmed's best episode to date. However the incessant need to drill the feminist agenda into viewers minds? It's getting pretty annoying. Like, what's their damage, you know?

And just like that, the wind has been effectively taken out of The Walking Dead's sails. That's not to say that The Walking Dead Season 9 Episode 7 was a bad installment, but given the quality this season has churned out, I expected much better. "Stradavarius" just wasn't what you would have expected going into the midseason finale. And as a result, it often felt sluggish and unfocused. Simply put, it just didn't feel up to par with the rest of the season. The Walking Dead h...]]>

If it hadn't been for the latter half, Supergirl Season 4 Episode 6, would have been a complete waste.  However, Alex made a few Harry Potter references, and Supergirl fought a dragon, so all was not wasted.  It's pretty evident that Supergirl Season 4 is moving at a glacial pace and steering towards one goal: the civil war with the aliens.  Alex can sit there and tell us this is a "fight like no other" over and over again, but sadly, it doesn't feel like the most danger...]]>

OK, so maybe the Office of Special Projects team was in more trouble than originally was evident. It was a look at one possible future on NCIS: Los Angeles Season 10 Episode 8. If so, it's going to require more big-picture thinking than ever before on the squad's part. Most episodes, it's black and white, figuring out who the bad guy is and chasing down him or her. Easy peasy. But this time, the team was forced to go down the national-security rabbit hole, and they did...]]>

Week after week, Madam Secretary focuses on the way US policy has global effects that most people might never think of. Madam Secretary Season 5 Episode 7 drove this point home.  Elizabeth's desire to create a worldwide coalition to stop the persecution of surrogate mothers everywhere came into direct conflict with the Vice President's need to focus only on the surrogate that was carrying her grandchild. I could see both sides of this. Elizabeth was thinking globally. Her...]]>

There is something difficult to share with this fandom, but every so often the reminder becomes too great to sit on it. There were instances during Outlander Season 4 Episode 3 poked the hornet's nest, so here goes: I still struggle to like Claire. Others I know have the same problem. There are two reasons it stood out during "The False Bride." The first was Claire's goodbye scene with Aunt Jocasta, and the second was Claire/Jamie and Brianna/Roger sharing a lot of screen time in d...]]>

It gets worse before it gets better, although in Sabrina's case it is like there is no silver lining left to look out for. In an almost ironic turn of events, everything that Sabrina feared is brought to Greendale and she has no choice but to accept what she was trying to escape this entire time. During Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 1 Episode 10, the Dark Lord finally found a way to get Sabrina to sign the Book of the Beat. Madam Satan manages to convince her to do it in the ...]]>

The Reagan family is extraordinary in many ways, and that was on display on Blue Bloods Season 9 Episode 8. But while they are exceptional, they aren't perfect.  Even Danny's loyalty to a friend on the job had its flaws. Should Danny have lied for Tommy? I was torn.  I can't imagine what it's like to voluntarily put yourself in harm's way on a regular basis as part of your job and Tommy had been doing that for decades without an issue. So should one moment of fea...]]>

Unlikely friendships come from unexpected trips. Pairing off the most unlikely people for various adventures was the perfect way for many of them to confront something they haven't realized about themselves. During Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Season 4 Episode 6, three different road trips bring the most unlikely pairings together. Darryl and Rebecca head out to a food place they both wanted to try, attempting to avoid stepping into the wrong topic of conversation along the way. Heather ...]]>

Who wouldn't want parents like Lem and Olivia? Olivia might have balked at the idea of becoming a mom on Midnight, Texas Season 2 Episode 4, but it didn't take her long to form a bond with Mary -- and that might have changed her mind completely. We've known for some time that Olivia had a rough childhood, and the idea of having kids wasn't at the top of Olivia's mind. But when Mary entered their lives, Olivia found that becoming a mom wasn't so bad.  Even though she wa...]]>

Lions and tigers and Liam, oh my. Like a fine Blue Belt wine, Dynasty keeps getting better with each passing episode.  Here are the facts: Dynasty Season 2 Episode 6 was the best episode to date.  It's entirely possible that I'm biased because of my deep love for the Wizard of Oz, but how can anyone argue with me after seeing Fallon take on Dorothy and the wizard? The world is not equipped to handle two Fallons making out with each other, but we are ready for the Tin...]]>

This was no A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. Still, there was a heartfelt examination of family holidays on Hawaii Five-0 Season 9 Episode 8. We got to spend most of Thanksgiving with the extended Grover family, who seemed to be right out of a Tyler Perry film (the Madea ones, not his serious works). Then there was that other extended family, Five-0 (minus Danny), and Kamekona and his staff. Even the case of the week had a Thanksgiving connection. It was largely a victimle...]]>

It is heartbreaking when a person suffers a rejection on the road to making his or her dreams come true. Both Ed and Mandy realized that first-hand on Last Man Standing Season 7 Episode 7, while Vanessa was consumed with regret over the dream, she never followed. We all have a dream of the way we want our lives to turn out. Whether it is having a family or a successful career, dreams are what gives us drive and purpose. However, like with Mandy, the road to making your dream...]]>

You know what's excellent about Titans?  It's surprising. Titans Season 1 Episode 6 put Kory, Rachel, and Gar on the periphery in favor of some character building for Dick, and it was needed.  The story is mostly told from Dick's perspective, so there will be some viewers who will not be a fan of the way "Jason Todd" was executed.  We needed to learn more about Jason and his link to Bruce Wayne to allow Dick to realize that his former mentor is even worse than he tho...]]>

Jack will now and forever be known as Mighty Mouse! You have to give Sam credit for keeping his mind occupied with a fidget spinner on Supernatural Season 14 Episode 6, and it set up the entire hour beautifully.  We knew Charlie from the apocalypse world would be different, but learning about Kara broke my heart immediately. It explained why this version of Charlie was reluctant to form a bond with other people.  You couldn't blame Charlie for not wanting to have any emot...]]>

On Murphy Brown Season 11 Episode 8, we have another solid episode with politics present, but on the peripheral. Corky's beauty pageant buddy has been in a coma for 11 years, and it's no surprise to anyone that Corky visits her on a regular basis. That's totally Corky. What's also Corky is her optimism, which was the underlying current of the storyline. It was Corky "Pollyanna" Sherwood vs. Murphy "Negative-Nelly" Brown. We were thisclose to losing what makes Corky...]]>

Wow. Where the heck are we going to go from here? How to Get Away with Murder Season 5 Episode 8 was an entertaining midseason finale giving us a body and a culprit. And we even got an answer to the biggest mystery of all, the identity of Gabriel Maddox.  Yet, when ranked amongst past big reveal episodes, I'm not so sure how this one ranks. We got nearly everything we wanted, so what mysteries do we have left to solve? Well, not many it would seem. As much as I was clamori...]]>
