Damn, this show moves at a brisk pace.  The Passage Season 1 Episode 2 was a solid follow-up to The Passage Season 1 Episode 1 and mostly avoided the post-pilot slowdown most high concept dramas struggle with.  Based on all the promotional materials, it seemed like the entire series was going to focus on Brad and Amy being on the run from all of the agents related to Project Noah.  That's why I was so surprised when Amy and Brad were being bundled into a van under the or...]]>

<![CDATA[Aftermath]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/The-Good-Doctor/Season-2/episode-12/reviews/Aftermath-41760
Things will never be the same again for the staff at San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital.  The Good Doctor Season 2 Episode 12, appropriately titled "Aftermath," picked up the day after the outbreak at the hospital and took us on a character-building journey away from the hospital for most of the characters.  We'll talk about Morgan and Claire first. Their scenes were hands down some of the show's finest to date. The very notion that they would be sharing brunch and mimosas whil...]]>

<![CDATA[Operator Error]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/The-Resident/Season-2/episode-11/reviews/Operator-Error
Well, my blood pressure is up; how about you guys?  The Resident Season 2 Episode 11 was an exercise in self-restraint as the urge to throw things, multiple things, all the things was strong!  Some evil genius thought it was a great idea to kill off a small but beloved character and throw another beloved doctor under a mother fudging train! Oh yeah, and stress out CoNic 'shippers too. Good times. R.I.P Bradley, you sweet, beautiful, warm soul. For personal reasons, I al...]]>

<![CDATA[Day of the Viper]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Magnum-P-I/Season-1/episode-13/reviews/Day-of-the-Viper
"He was a good man. Like you." Well, if that doesn't seal the deal right there about a Higgins/Magnum romance in bloom, I don't know what does. We didn't get to learn a whole lot about Higgins' former fiance, Richard, on Magnum P.I. Season 1 Episode 13, but we did learn that his murder devastated her. When she had the opportunity to learn the identity of the man responsible for his murder, she called on the one person Higgins knew she could depend on -- Magnum. Althoug...]]>

<![CDATA[Angelitos Negros]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Black-Lightning/Season-2/episode-10/reviews/Angelitos-Negros
Jennifer and Khalil closed the book on their runaway adventure once and for all. The pair decided to return home on Black Lightning Season 2 Episode 10 to face the firing squad and take a stand against their enemies (i.e., Tobias, their families). Unfortunately, their brave decision was their downfall. If only they had come home sooner or handled the situation differently, Tobias wouldn't have won. But would any decision have made a difference? Jennifer and Khalil's time on ...]]>

<![CDATA[My Name is Emiko Queen]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Arrow/Season-7/episode-10/reviews/My-Name-is-Emiko-Queen
The Queen siblings may not look or sound the same, but one thing is for sure they all have some serious daddy issues.  Thea probably thinks (and still thinks) that she should be given a trophy for the award of Queen child with the most complex parental issues, but her long-lost step-sister may have snatched the award from her.  Seems only fitting since she snatched the green hood from her half-brother.  The New Green Arrow was a small plotline in the first half of Season...]]>

<![CDATA[Winner Takes All]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Magnum-P-I/Season-1/episode-12/reviews/Winner-Takes-All
And the winner is Magnum. He might not have gotten a monetary reward for solving Barry's murder on Magnum P.I. Season 1 Episode 12, but money is never the reason Magnum takes on any case. He takes all factors into consideration and while he would love to have cash in hand, most times it doesn't work that way. At least he gets something to show for his work, though. Live chickens and a new grill won't pay the bills, but things always seem to work out for Magnum. He's...]]>

<![CDATA[Keep Calm and Harry On]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Survivor/Season-1/episode-10/reviews/Keep-Calm-and-Harry-On
For a midseason premiere, that wasn’t half bad! Structurally speaking, Charmed (2018) Season 1 Episode 10 was the biggest success thus far. Finally, storylines are beginning to come together and make for interesting television. Opting to stray away from the “monster of the week” trope they’ve held on to so tightly, Charmed instead chose to focus more on the arcs which have spanned across the entire season. Boy, did that work in their favor. I have believed from t...]]>

<![CDATA[The Apple Doesn't Fall Far From the Alibi]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Shameless/Season-9/episode-8/reviews/The-Apple-Doesn-t-Fall-Far-From-the-Alibi
Was the hiatus really necessary? Shameless Season 9 Episode 8 served as the show's midseason premiere following Showtime's decision to go all AMC and split up its most popular drama series.  Off the bat, it ruined the momentum it had been building. It all played out like one of those dull episodes as a show reaches the final run of the season.  We'll talk about Fiona first. It's difficult to understand whether we're supposed to feel sorry about her essentially becoming he...]]>

<![CDATA[Twin Cities]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Counterpart/Season-2/episode-6/reviews/Twin-Cities
Justin Marks, creator and showrunner of Counterpart, wrote and directed "Twin Cities." That's why after watching Counterpart Season 2 Episode 6 two times it still doesn't feel like enough.  There were a lot of answers to many questions posed since the series began and the possibility came to mind that the end could be in focus. That's how important to the parallel worlds Mira has turned out to be, a supposition if posited when she was first introduced would have been hard to imagin...]]>

<![CDATA[Suspicious Minds]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Supergirl/Season-4/episode-10/reviews/Suspicious-Minds-41751
Supergirl is staring down her biggest threat yet: Colonel Haley.  Alex attempted everything humanly possible to derail Colonel Haley on Supergirl Season 4 Episode 10, but the Colonel was too adamant about finding out Supergirl's identity. Her desire consumed most of the episode which was both good and bad.  When J'onn wiped Haley's mind so she'd forget that she figured it out, Haley didn't give up; she hit back harder by rolling in a 'truth seeker.' Knowing Supergirl'...]]>

<![CDATA[Providence]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Outlander/Season-4/episode-12/reviews/Providence-41750
When you plan a prison break, please be sure to keep track of the keys. Everything on Outlander Season 4 Episode 12 was going swimmingly (well, except for a severe case of burning love) until Fergus and the gang managed to put a damper on Brianna's future just when she managed to make peace with it. It was the typical soap opera twist that opened a lot of discussion points for what will come for Brianna and her child, and we haven't even begun to think about Roger yet! It...]]>

<![CDATA[The Case of the Eternal Teenagers]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Days-of-our-Lives/Season-44/episode-49/reviews/The-Case-of-the-Eternal-Teenagers
The Rex/Sarah/Eric storyline would be great drama ... if the people involved were teenagers. On Days of Our Lives during the week of 1-14-19, Rex spent most of his time begging Eric to help him with some inane plan involving tricking Sarah into spending time alone with Rex. To his credit, Eric didn't go along with this, but Rex and Sarah both acted in ways they should have outgrown when they left high school. Why is this a front-burner storyline? Love triangles are a soap st...]]>

Can we skip ahead to February 1? Because based on the previews,  Elizabeth Keen is about to get busted! We all need to grab a tiny bottle of champagne and celebrate! But while we're waiting, let's talk about The Blacklist Season 6 Episode 4, and Red's awesome ability to pick out the perfect friends -- even in prison. Red could have sat with anyone in that lunchroom but chose Vontae, the least likely person you'd think the concierge of crime would choose to befriend. Bu...]]>

It is all rainbows and flowers until someone overhears your happy news and makes us all as conflicted as ever. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend deserves major props for their ability to make us care about both sides of a love triangle equally, but what happens when a choice gets made?  That is definitely where the whole "why choose" conversation comes in because that is the real dilemma in all of this.  During Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Season 4 Episode 10, Rebecca babysits Hebecca and throu...]]>

After watching this episode, I had to wonder: why not more underwater crimes? Like this classic locked-room mystery on Hawaii Five-0 Season 9 Episode 13. I'm sure underwater photography jacks the production costs up big time. But with two ex-SEALs on FIve-0 and islands surrounded by all kinds of water, it is kind of a natural idea. Seemingly, everyone on the team is comfortable in the water. Granted, maybe the imports, Danny and Grover, not as much. But still ... Betwee...]]>

<![CDATA[A Champagne Mood]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Dynasty/Season-2/episode-10/reviews/A-Champagne-Mood
No time got wasted on Dynasty Season 2 Episode 10. The crash at the end of Dynasty Season 2 Episode 9 was addressed immediately revealing that Jeff Colby didn't just survive, he thrived after his brush with death.  I was expecting the storyline, specifically the feud between Colby and Culhane to be a bit more drawn out, but I'm also glad we don't have to watch the only two African American characters go after each other for longer than necessary. When things were going goo...]]>

Totally. Called. It. It was gratifying -- if a little surprising -- that The Orville Season 2 Episode 4 paid off the bet I made on the introduction of Lt. Tyler on The Orville Season 2 Episode 1. Surprising only because I kind of expected them to draw it out a little longer with a bigger reveal. There's a lot of shading in the writing here which seems more thoughtful and complex than the first big encounter with the Krill on The Orville Season 1 Episode 6. This is prob...]]>

Things are heating up as we reach the end of The Good Place Season 3. With the finale now only a week away, The Good Place Season 3 Episode 12 brings everything full circle.  Related: The Good Place Season 3 Episode 11 Review: The Book of Dougs It's finally time for Eleanor and the gang to head back to where it all started, and we couldn't be more excited about it.  The meeting with the judge at IHOP was an extremely comical start to the episode. Not only was it fun...]]>

A hiatus does the body good.  The series returned and A Million Little Things Season 1 Episode 11 wasted no time jumping back into all of the mystery and intrigue that has people hooked. That is where the series is at its strongest, and while Maggie's cancer battle was still featured prominently, and Eddie and Delilah still had a couple of moments, the midseason premiere was one of the more well-balanced of the series. All of the characters were featured, including the children. ...]]>

The devil is alive y'all! Well, not really. But Sam Keating was back in a big way on How to Get Away with Murder Season 5 Episode 9. And he was just as bad as we all remember. As the first of many deaths we got on the show, it’s easy to forget about Sam and how much of an impact he had on the show as a whole.  The specter of Sam Keating has haunted the characters and the show at large for years and this installment introduced us to another side of Sam we hadn’t seen be...]]>

Can we talk about that ending? Whatever was in that book Jessica gave Dean on Supernatural Season 14 Episode 10 must've been a doozy because a flurry of emotions ran through him and none of them were good. He mostly seemed shocked so I'm wondering if Dean's alternative ending might involve his daddy-o because of Jessica's comment about jumping back and forth between worlds. But maybe he's just going to die peacefully as an old man. Yeah, right. We know that's not going to ...]]>

There doesn't seem to be any hope left for Gotham. After a bomb ripped through Jim Gordon's Haven on Gotham Season 5 Episode 3, good citizens seem to be lacking, too. It was a shocking turn of events after what seemed like a major victory for Gordon and the rest of the good guys after they secured a place people could call home until Gotham got back under control.  The Haven was a place where everyone sought refuge. It was a place of hope, but now all that is destroyed. ...]]>

Oh, Grey's, how I have missed you.  Grey's Anatomy Season 15 Episode 9 started the year off right with a sexy, funny, tragic, and endearing hour that got the ball rolling and moved the plots that were dragging forward. Even the love triangle wasn't as annoying. Which love triangle, you ask? Both of them. The hour picked up where Grey's Anatomy Season 15 Episode 8 left off with some of the doctors stuck in their respective elevators. The show wasted no time by ripping the b...]]>

Lagertha's back! She's been holed up in Wessex being taken care of by an old lady this whole time! She appeared to be having a mental breakdown of some sorts, but now that Judith has found her on Vikings Season 5 Episode 18, she'll be back to her old self in no time.  It was surprising to learn that Judith may be dying of breast cancer, but it does explain her behavior recently. She was in such a hurry to find Alfred a wife and for him to produce an heir. She's also...]]>

Even after his death, we're still adding layers to Shawn's character.  Through flashbacks on All American Season 1 Episode 9, we learned why Spencer is still harboring guilt over Shawn's fate.  Did Shawn really choose his own path, or was it chosen for him? Up until now we've been led to believe that Shawn chose the gang life, and Spencer chose a different path, but that turned out to not be quite true.  Shawn's older brother dragged him into the life from a very you...]]>

On Modern Family Season 10 Episode 12, there's life in the house again. The Dunphy house hasn't been brimming with this much action in a long time. Sure, there's been drama here and there, but the constant madness has been part of what's missing. These twins might just breathe life back into Modern Family. In the Dunphy house, anyway. We're still knee-deep in conflict with Jay and Gloria. Why is it that it feels like it's always Gloria and Manny against Jay? I can't be the ...]]>

First, Olinsky died, then Antonio had a drug problem and his daughter was kidnapped, then Ruzek took the fall for Antonio, and now, Atwater got shot!  They just cannot catch a break.  And that wasn't even the craziest thing to happen on Chicago PD Season 6 Episode 11. On several occasions, Halstead reminded us that this is Chicago, a...]]>

Oh Archie, even with being miles away from Riverdale, your hometown troubles always find a way to mess with you. Our favorite boy-next-door's life hangs in the balance on Riverdale Season 3 Episode 9. But even with the fear, the bear attack might've been the best thing that could've happened to him.

This show is special to me and makes me feel all fuzzy and warm inside. It's like a warm embrace at the end of a tiring day.  Sorry, it's just that New Amsterdam Season 1 Episode 11 was super emotional, which is to say it was business as usual on a series that makes it its mission to trigger a person's allergies.  What are we supposed to do with all of these emotions?!  Let's start with Max's chemotherapy. Max, like most doctors, is the worst patient ever! He wouldn't s...]]>
