SPOILER ALERT! If you want to remain spoiler free you will want to go watch The Rookie Season 1 Episode 16, "Greenlight" and then come back for this review. You’ve been warned. Captain Zoe Anderson, played by Mercedes Mason, has been one of my favorite characters since the beginning of The Rookie Season 1. Anderson was complex: an exemplary mentor, a great cop, badass, by-the-book, yet personal and friendly. As I watched The Rookie Season 1 Episode 16 I experienced...]]>

<![CDATA[Don't Take My Sunshine Away]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/This-Is-Us/Season-3/episode-16/reviews/Don-t-Take-My-Sunshine-Away
If this was the calm before the storm, oh boy are we in for one hell of a disaster. The never-ending Randall and Beth saga came to a head on This Is Us Season 3 Episode 16 as Randall went from a doting and devout husband to a massive jerk within a couple of days. Randall and Beth's marital woes have been a very prominent story throughout This Is Us Season 3, and while there were multiple times it seemed like they put these issues to bed, the underlying tension remains and has bu...]]>

<![CDATA[Songs About Texas]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Roswell-New-Mexico/Season-1/episode-9/reviews/Songs-About-Texas
There's a fourth alien! Max and Liz kissed! Maria and Michael got hot and heavy in the desert! Roswell, New Mexico Season 1 Episode 9 had a lot of big twists that should help advance the plot of this freshman drama, but I can't say I'm excited about any of them.  We'll start with that kiss between Max and Liz. I love a good callback, and having Shiri Appleby direct this episode was poignant given that the ninth episode of the original series was the first time OG Max and OG Liz lock...]]>

<![CDATA[Time Bomb]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/The-Flash/Season-5/episode-17/reviews/Time-Bomb-42029
The truth is out! I repeat the truth is out! The Flash Season 5 Episode 17 gave us the moment we’ve all been waiting for. Nora confessed to being in cahoots with Eobard Thawne. At least, technically it was her confession. Sherloque was the one to drop the actual reveal. Sherloque’s character being given some significance to the plot was nice(it only took 17 episodes), but did it need to be during the biggest moment of the season? Related: The Flash Season 5 Episode...]]>

<![CDATA[Less Than]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Good-Trouble/Season-1/episode-11/reviews/Less-Than
Intersectionality was the name of the game on Good Trouble Season 1 Episode 11. The simple truth of the matter is whether you're speaking about gender, race, economic status, politics, sexuality and any social issue you can think about; if it's not intersectional, then it's flawed and incomplete. I have to be completely honest. Good Trouble has proven time and again how when it comes to delving into real issues affecting people they are fearless and unabashed. The series ha...]]>

<![CDATA[Pilot]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/The-Fix/Season-1/episode-1/reviews/Pilot-42027
With the help of real-life attorney and author, Marcia Clark, The Fix Season 1 Episode 1 takes on the case of the century and adds just enough fictional twists to keep us guessing.  For those of us who lived through the OJ Simpson case, the similarities are strikingly obvious. Instead of a famed football player, we have a movie star and swap out the dead wife and boyfriend for a dead wife and girlfriend. We keep the by the book female ADA and charismatic defense attorney but the...]]>

<![CDATA[Betrayal]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/The-Resident/Season-2/episode-17/reviews/Betrayal-42026
The first and last five minutes of The Resident Season 2 Episode 17 were the definition of action-packed! This series knows how to make your pulse race and leave you on the edge of your seat leaning so close to the screen you risk bumping into it. While most of the hour was a bit humdrum as we awaited the real action, the last ten minutes or so of the hour made everything worth it. It pays off to have a little faith. Marshall is not a traitor. Better than that, Marshall is...]]>

<![CDATA[New Beginnings]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/9-1-1/Season-2/episode-11/reviews/New-Beginnings-42025
That was a pretty wild ride.  When an episode starts with the skin of a woman's forehead falling over her eyes, you know you are in for something crazy. And 9-1-1 Season 2 Episode 11 did not disappoint! The skin over the eyes wasn't even necessarily the wildest sight to be seen either. There was also a real-life shark on the freeway.  After a very long hiatus, 9-1-1 came back with an hour that was all about starting anew.  It was permeating throughout every emergenc...]]>

<![CDATA[Star City 2040]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Arrow/Season-7/episode-16/reviews/Star-City-2040
Well, if you wanted answers about the year 2040, you got a lot of them! Arrow Season 7 Episode 16 was set almost entirely in the future, and in a matter of 40 minutes, the hour delivered a lot of answers without feeling heavy with exposition. And a note to The CW: If it's not in your plans to expand the Arrowverse with the second generation of vigilantes, you need to rethink that decision. It's the perfect way to keep the characters we've grown to love alive while almost completely r...]]>

<![CDATA[A Kiss From A Rose]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Shadowhunters/Season-3/episode-14/reviews/A-Kiss-From-A-Rose
The perfect date for "Clace" turned into another perfect disaster. We can blame Jonathan for ruining all of our romantic hopes on Shadowhunters Season 3 Episode 14. His obsession for his sister crossed into major levels of creepiness. Gone were all the pretenses of reclaiming the Morgenstern name; he made his move, and he made it obvious. At some point, Clary should follow the lead of Regina George and create her own GIF-worthy moment of saying, "Why are you so obsessed with me?" ...]]>

<![CDATA[Switches & Stones]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Charmed-2018/Season-1/episode-15/reviews/Switches-Stones
This episode featured a progressively modern take on an age-old legend, the perfect story fit for a series like Charmed. Although less nuanced than it’s previous few installments, Charmed Season 1 Episode 15 continued to highlight what the series creators promised to deliver: unbridled and unapologetic feminism. This time, it got showcased through the legend of Medusa. Reminding their demographic you can’t always believe what you hear in school, Charmed writers shined a ligh...]]>

<![CDATA[The Dragon Slayer]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/God-Friended-Me/Season-1/episode-17/reviews/The-Dragon-Slayer
If only all humans were as good as Miles.  Week by week, this series restores my faith in humanity.  Most of God Friended Me Season 1 Episode 17 focused on Miles' friend suggestion, Ben Evans, a homeless man whose run of bad luck was getting the best of him. Every encounter Miles had with Ben and his son, Max, was more emotional than the next.  Since the creation of the God Account, Miles has helped a handful of people, but he was almost like a Guardian Angel to Max...]]>

<![CDATA[Scars]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/The-Walking-Dead/Season-9/episode-14/reviews/Scars-42020
Time heals all wounds, but the scars from being branded by brainwashed psycho children remain forever. Okay, I may have taken some liberties with that quote, but the point is that The Walking Dead Season 9 Episode 14 at long last addressed the trauma Michonne was subjected to in the years following Rick's sacrifice. It was probably one of the weakest episodes in the season, but at the very least, the root of Michonne's severe trust issues was brought to light. Michonne's sea...]]>

Excuse me, but did that just happen? Boomer has been the central villain since this series inception, and it didn’t seem like he was ever going to leave us, or the ladies, alone. But something remarkable happened on Good Girls Season 2 Episode 3. Mary Pat ended up being the woman to do the one thing the ladies couldn’t quite accomplish. SPOILER ALERT! Leslie “Boomer” Peterson is dead. Everything leading up to Boomer’s death becomes a blur in contrast to ...]]>

Well, that was worth the nearly 10 seasons of waiting. Capping what had to be one of the slowest burns ever, Kensi and Deeks finally got married on NCIS: Los Angeles Season 10 Episode 17. Yup, after more than four seasons as a couple and a two-year engagement, the couple has tied the knot! Hell, Deeks even found a second career faster. But, as Kirkin, and Shakespeare before him, pointed out, the course of true love never did run smooth. Related: NCIS: Los Angeles Se...]]>

Oh, Lena Luthor. What have you done? What have you unleashed onto National City? Jon Cryer made his highly anticipated debut as sociopath Lex Luthor on Supergirl Season 4 Episode 15, and it was delicious.  I don't remember the last time I enjoyed a Supergirl episode this much. At least not this season.  If you thought Manchester Black and Ben Lockwood were terrible for the city, you haven't seen anything yet.  There's a reason why so many guards accompanied Lex L...]]>

<![CDATA[The New Normal]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Madam-Secretary/Season-5/episode-16/reviews/The-New-Normal-42016
Madam Secretary never shies away from controversy. Madam Secretary Season 5 Episode 16 took on climate change while also indirectly questioning the role of special interest lobbyists in political campaigns. And just when I couldn't hate Mike B more, his dog got sick and broke my heart. Throughout most of this campaign, I've felt that Mike B is the wrong campaign manager for Elizabeth. Elizabeth is an idealist, and Mike B is utterly pragmatic, focused solely on what he t...]]>

<![CDATA[Round and Round We Go]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Days-of-our-Lives/Season-44/episode-88/reviews/Round-and-Round-We-Go
When Marlena was shot at her own wedding during the summer of 2019 and slipped into a coma, Drake Hogysten (John)'s performance as her grieving almost-husband had me in tears. This repeat performance on Days of Our Lives during the week of 3-11-19 isn't nearly as moving. Hogysten is still putting his heart and soul into John's grief, but we just saw this! The writers seemed to believe that because it was emotional once, doing it again will be just as compelling. But couldn't they have...]]>

<![CDATA[Two-Faced]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Blue-Bloods/Season-9/episode-17/reviews/Two-Faced
Cop shows often reference the blue wall of silence. Typically, TV cops treat internal affairs officers like dirt, band together to protect each other, and ostracize any officer who doesn't follow the party line. It was refreshing to see Blue Bloods Season 9 Episode 17 approach this kind of story differently. The parallels between Frank's situation and Jamie's were impressive. Jamie was trying to smoke out a bad cop, while Frank was trying to get a good one to stop cov...]]>

Well, THAT happened.  Dynasty Season 2 Episode 14 finally brought Adam into the mix, and his entrance will surely go down as one of the most memorable arrivals on TV in quite some time.  Stephen was all over the place. I mean, I figured this George Emerson character was a figment of Stephen\s imagination before Fallon and Sammy Jo even entertained the possibility.  Stephen has always been an erratic character, and the way he spoke about the elusive George was like he had...]]>

Sometimes it's acceptable to minimize the character development in an episode. Hawaii Five-0 Season 9 Episode 19 largely focuses on a couple of enjoyable oddball cases. Still, Junior continued to try to get through the wall that his father Natano has built up around himself following the death of Junior's sister Maya. It was poignant to see how discovering his daughter's lost charm bracelet affected Natano and how he and Junior communicated in a series of grunts and nods. ...]]>

Criminal defense attorneys often take the stand that even personally repulsive clients deserve adequate representation. The idea is that either rights are for everybody or they're for nobody. But what happens if that client shows signs of hating you and all the people like you? Proven Innocent Season 1 Episode 5 explored how messy the fight for justice can get when the client in question is not a marginalized person who was convicted because of prejudice but is instead someone who ha...]]>

I love you. Liz said the three most powerful words in the English language to Red on The Blacklist Season 6 Episode 11, and it may have been the last thing he ever heard from the woman he loves more than life. What Liz wanted to know was Red's true identity, but after Red shared with her an emotional story about his childhood while he was enjoying his last meal, she changed course. Whether or not her words were genuine doesn't matter at this point. If Red survives, there wi...]]>

When we look back on this season, I feel that Star Trek: Discovery Season 2 Episode 9 will be the keystone episode that begins the resolution to all the mysteries that have been introduced. Setting aside the biological element of Section 31, revealing that Control is not a person but a threat assessment program was an elegant finesse that changed the parameters of the conflict Discovery is facing. It's decidedly chilling that an intelligence created from the informational inpu...]]>

Everything is nearly back to normal on Station 19 Season 2 Episode 9. Jack and Sullivan are back at work, but their replacements aren't ready to turn their jobs back over to them.  Maya dreads her impending transfer to Station 23, and Pruitt has become attached to the Captain job once again.  We all knew Maya wasn't actually going anywhere.  I'll admit I wasn't exactly sure how they were going to keep her at Station 19, but it ended up being a very simple solution o...]]>

Law & Order: SVU was finally back! So good to see Benson and the rest of the crew again. Law & Order: SVU Season 20 Episode 17 branched off in a billion interesting directions after a little girl was found in a car trunk. But then the final twist belonged on Days of Our Lives instead and seemed to excuse a pedophile's crime because he was also a victim. What? It was refreshing to begin the hour with a little girl found instead of a little girl lost. That in itse...]]>

When Nikolaj's birth father, Gintars, tracks down Charles, Charles is worried that he could lose his son.  Related: Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 6 Episode 9 Review: The Golden Child As usual, Jake is there to help, but things don't exactly go as smoothly as he would like.

I remember where I was for my first Miss Mystic Falls. If you watched The Vampire Diaries and The Originals, you likely remember, too.  Fans of the original shows were in for a nostalgia-filled night on Legacies Season 1 Episode 14 as the Salvatore School hosted the annual pageant.  There were familiar elements weaved in like the traditional dance, Caroline's dress gifted to her by Klaus, and even Roman, Hope's ex-boyfriend, and the man partially responsible for her moth...]]>

The tall man with beautiful hair indeed. Sam was caught up in an idyllic fantasy on Supernatural Season 14 Episode 15 when he and Cas visited an Arkansas town to investigate a strange death. The duo stepped back in time not only within the story but also with the old-school Supernatural feel of it. It was also a nice change of pace from all the heaviness of this season. Sam was suffering from a little bit of PTSD after Michael's brutal slaughtering of the bunker hunt...]]>

It's the season of love, but it has also been the season of family.  It goes to show you love comes in various forms. We can debate all day about the 'ships sailing, but the familial aspect of this season is interesting as well.  Grey's Anatomy Season 15 Episode 17 had the (possible) departures of Vincenzo and Helen, Maggie stepping into a part of her identity, the complex Towen family unit, and it teased the upcoming arrival of Jo's biological mother. Let's start things ...]]>
