Netflix's newest show, Shadow and Bone, is off to a great start.  Based on the best-selling books by Leigh Bardugo, the show Shadow and Bone has two riveting storylines that intertwine more closely as the show progresses. Shadow and Bone Season 1 Episode 1 introduces compelling characters, intriguing dynamics, and a strong setting, along with the plot. "A Searing Burst of Light" immediately introduces us to Alina Starkov, a cartographer, and her best friend, Mal Oretsev, a...]]>

<![CDATA[Tailspin]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Manifest/Season-3/episode-4/reviews/Tailspin-44527
Vance wasn't lying when he referred to the NSA's 828 investigation room as "eureka." Much of Manifest Season 3 Episode 4 focused on the mystery surrounding what happened to Flight 828 and the tailfin, and it was a lot to process.  We were bombarded with plenty of information, but as usual, with every answer, several new questions arose.  It's almost like we can't ever get ahead of the mystery; we're always two steps behind as we try to piece together all the clues.  ...]]>

<![CDATA[Get Up, Stand Up]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Station-19/Season-4/episode-12/reviews/Get-Up-Stand-Up-44526
Telling -- or in this case retelling -- a horror that sent shockwaves throughout the entire country in a respectful way is a massive undertaking. There are so many things that need to be considered, and the last thing you'd want is to retraumatize people by telling a story of this magnitude without the proper forethought. Good intentions mean less in today's age, which is why it was a sigh of relief to watch the firefighting drama get it mostly right on Station 19 Season 4 Episode 12...]]>

<![CDATA[SVU Season 22 Episode 12 Review]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Law-Order-SVU/Season-22/episode-12/reviews/SVU-Season-22-Episode-12-Review
SVU pulled it off! I'm usually not a fan of these Benson hostage situation stories, but  Law & Order: SVU Season 22 Episode 12 turned out to be a powerful story about the effect the COVID-19 pandemic has had on everyone. And juxtaposing Vanessa's pain with Rollins' fears and anger about her dad's condition made this even stronger. Chief Garland's attempts to get the cops to stand down and let Benson talk the woman into surrendering peacefully were among my favorite scen...]]>

<![CDATA[Organized Crime Season 1 Episode 4 Review]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Law-Order-Organized-Crime/Season-1/episode-4/reviews/Organized-Crime-Season-1-Episode-4-Review
Sometimes silence says more than all the words in the world. If anyone had any doubt that Christopher Meloni is a powerhouse of an actor,  Law & Order: Organized Crime Season 1 Episode 4 proved it. Stabler's reactions while alone in his home at the beginning and end of the hour were among some of the strongest moments in the series thus far, plus we got some of the best, most accurate depictions of PTSD on television. A good chunk of time was dedicated to Stabler's deco...]]>

<![CDATA[Good as Hell]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Grey-s-Anatomy/Season-17/episode-13/reviews/Good-as-Hell
Finally, Meredith is awake! It took a lifetime to get to this point of her waking up for good and us bidding the beach goodbye. And by the end of Grey's Anatomy Season 17 Episode 13, Meredith got some closure with Derek, woke up at the request of her precious eldest daughter, and everyone celebrated. It was an hour that seemed to recognize more than the others the general fatigue and malaise that came with everything going on. While it's about multiple installments too damn ...]]>

<![CDATA[The Last Unicorn]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Younger/Season-7/episode-5/reviews/The-Last-Unicorn
We all saw this coming.  The writing was on the wall since the first moment Quinn showed interest in Charles. We may not have known her motivations, but we knew she was up to something, and boy, did Younger Season 7 Episode 5 deliver with the truth about Quinn's intentions. Liza's intuition was right on the money, and her persistence paid off in a big way. In hindsight, Quinn wanting Charles as her arm candy makes perfect sense. Her failed senate race was an embar...]]>

<![CDATA[No Te Pierdas La Cabeza]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Queen-of-the-South/Season-5/episode-3/reviews/No-Te-Pierdas-La-Cabeza
It was surprising to no one except, maybe, Teresa that Boaz took matters into his own hands with Judge Lafayette on Queen of the South Season 5 Episode 3. I know Teresa is the boss, but Lafayette killed Boaz's lover and his cousin, and as Boaz himself said, he's impulsive. He's also vicious and brutal when crossed. If Teresa expected him to hang back and let her execute her own plan, she needed to keep Boaz on a much shorter leash.  But that didn't happen, and I can't even...]]>

<![CDATA[Redefine]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/A-Million-Little-Things/Season-3/episode-11/reviews/Redefine
It was another touching hour. We don't know how much time has passed or in what stage of the pandemic the gang is in on A Million Little Things Season 3 Episode 11, but everyone is trying to live their best lives and keep themselves together. And the raw honesty and humanity in that are what always make the series and characters resonate. Katherine is the prime example of someone who is trying to keep it together. She's still so overwhelmed by everything that has transpired...]]>

<![CDATA[Rearview Mirror]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Seal-Team/Season-4/episode-12/reviews/Rearview-Mirror
Bravo is kind of a mess right now, aren't they? Except in the field, as they proved once again on SEAL Team Season 4 Episode 12. Jason learned an unpleasant lesson about himself when he looked up a former teammate with whom he had lost touch.   It wasn't hard to believe that an ex-teammate had drifted away from Jason. He's really a here-and-now kind of guy, not one to wallow in sentimentality. Or, as both Theo and Davis pointed out, Jason is all about "the mission."  ...]]>

<![CDATA[Natural Born Firefighter]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Chicago-Fire/Season-9/episode-12/reviews/Natural-Born-Firefighter
All's well that ends well. That was the general sentiment reached by our favorite firefighters at the end of Chicago Fire Season 9 Episode 12, as it was pretty much happy endings all around. Well, not for Brett and Grainger, but we all knew that wouldn't last, so that doesn't count technically. Yes, things are looking up for 51. Of course, just writing those words could wreak havoc on the entire firehouse, but given that all the episodes for the season are most likely writt...]]>

<![CDATA[Due Process]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Chicago-PD/Season-8/episode-12/reviews/Due-Process-44517
Finally, an episode dedicated entirely to Voight! First thing's first, Chicago PD Season 8 Episode 12 was a brutal reminder always to make sure you're getting into the correct rideshare.  Always check the license plate and share your location with friends! You can never be too careful.   The case-heavy episode found Intelligence pursuing a serial rapist and killer that was recently released from jail.  And it gave us Voight at his best.  Despite every bone in h...]]>

<![CDATA[Patience]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Kung-Fu/Season-1/episode-3/reviews/Patience-44516
"Patience" ended up being a high-stakes episode for many. Nicky and Henry made significant progress with the Zhilan case, and more was revealed about the personal lives of the Shens. Zhilan made headway and obtained another weapon, which begs the question: can she be stopped? Thankfully, Zhilan got a lot of screentime on Kung Fu Season 1 Episode 3. Her character keeps getting more interesting, and Professor Chau also provided some information about Zhilan's past that offered...]]>

Chicago Med is back again, and it was well worth the wait. Chicago Med Season 6 Episode 12 ramped things up a lot and explored parent/child relationships from several different angles. And Dean was actually tolerable for once, so that was an extra win! Dr. Charles' continued problems with both Anna and Mona led to a compelling story. The Mona situation is going to get worse before it gets better. That was always going to be the case, from the second that Mona switched he...]]>

If you didn't cry during The Conners Season 3 Episode 18, then you have no heart.  Yes, it was another highly emotional installment involving Becky's alcoholism, but this time we got some answers about how Mark died and how others in the family felt about him.  Especially Dan. But let's backtrack a bit.  Becky was going through the motions at rehab and using her well-honed coping mechanism of sarcastic humor to get her through, and it was bugging the heck out of her ...]]>

It was an angsty, sexy, and exciting hour. But Edrisa fans can rejoice that Prodigal Son Season 2 Episode 9 gave us some content we craved, as she got involved with a case, pulled a Bright, bonded with Malcolm, and more. And there's no such thing as too much of Edrisa. The case was another fun one; well, if you consider dismembered body parts strewn throughout a meat locker "fun." It did introduce us to the Killabustas and stirred up some angsty introspection and hallucinat...]]>

It’s just our luck that the most likable Kleinsasser is the first one to go. Spoiler alert! This is Big Sky, and if you haven’t figured out by now that NO ONE is safe, then what show are you watching? On Big Sky Season 1 Episode 12, Blake came back home, and shockingly not all the Kleinsasser’s were happy to see him. It all culminated in another shocking ending and a death that we didn’t see coming. We’re going to treat Blake getting hit square in the jaw as a kil...]]>

<![CDATA[Lost Souls]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Supergirl/Season-6/episode-4/reviews/Lost-Souls-44511
Another episode, another missed opportunity to save Kara in both worlds. The Super Friends' Phantom problem grew so far out of control on Supergirl Season 6 Episode 4 that they needed to focus all of their efforts on stopping it. And a betrayal in the Phantom Zone lead to Kara destroying her only way home. The hour was mostly filler, which is a bit disappointing for a final season. However, it was still more intriguing than past episodes as it had great action and well-crafted charact...]]>

<![CDATA[Catch]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/New-Amsterdam/Season-3/episode-8/reviews/Catch
In keeping with an ongoing theme of addressing many issues and disparities of the healthcare system, the hour focused on maternal health. Each of the doctors had a maternal/pregnancy case on New Amsterdam Season 3 Episode 8, and the installment produced some powerful content yet again. It also was directed by none other than Shiri Appleby. How often can we discuss how Iggy continues to shine this season in all aspects of his life? It's getting redundant at this point, yes?...]]>

You can always count on The Resident to take us for an emotional rollercoaster ride. By the end of The Resident Season 4 Episode 10, it appears that we really have said goodbye to Mina Okafor. Everything hurts right now. But aside from the myriad of emotions felt at the prospect of losing one of the series' best characters, objectively, it was another strong hour. Like Mina, I, too, like to bury all of my feelings deep down and postpone inevitable emotional fallout, so let's...]]>

It’s hard to figure out if Chimney has the worst luck in the entire world or the best. The man has had more things happen to him than most everyone else in the 118, it seems, but he still manages to come out the other side every single time. On 9-1-1 Season 4 Episode 9 he was blessed with the birth of his daughter and the agony of finding out that his brother was close to death. Albert has been an excellent addition to the 9-1-1 family. Though the show has struggled to i...]]>

Finally, some football trickled back into this series. Don't worry, though. There was still plenty of drama on All American Season 3 Episode 10. Spencer revealed he can still play when his mind sticks to what's happening on the field. Thank Coach Billy for that. Just in the nick of time, South Crenshaw put in everything in time to save its season. Billy started that revamping process when he found his kicker in Nhani on All American Season 3 Episode 9, although her abil...]]>

There's good news, bad news, and some in-between news in the wake of Debris Season 1 Episode 8. The very best news is that Finola and Bryan, while still expected to work together despite opposing directives, have found a comfortable rhythm in which they share everything with each other. The worst news is that very little was offered regarding the overarching mystery, even with a significant reveal. Make that two mysteries. The first mystery, of course, is about the debris an...]]>

I'm glad The Good Doctor is addressing gender expectations. I'm not a fan of gender reveals because you don't know yet whether your child's birth-assigned gender matches their gender identity, and anyway, people tend to start putting those expectations on kids as soon as they learn their gender assignment. But The Good Doctor Season 4 Episode 14 did its best to turn that irritating habit on its head by having Shaun discover more and more how prevalent sexism is as time went on. ...]]>

The new blood didn't last long on The Rookie Season 3 Episode 11, and I found that oddly disappointing. I say oddly because I had no interest in the new rookies coming into this episode, and I have to admit, The Badger made me cringe when crowed about Nolan being his role model for joining the force.  The Badger was exactly the kind of recruit Sgt. Grey had dreaded would be inspired by Nolan's success, and it turns out he wasn't wrong. I immediately wondered who The Badge...]]>

There's a lot going on in Hope Valley, with Florence and Ned's wedding on the horizon and a mystery to solve. There's a new pastor in town and a new rift in a friendship, too. When Calls the Heart Season 8 Episode 9 also started unraveling the brief happiness that Lucas shared with Elizabeth. If one couple is quickly moving toward a future that has been a long time coming, others are not so solidified in their pursuits. Carson and Faith realized on When Calls the Heart S...]]>

Fear the Walking Dead is staging the ultimate return to form. Fear the Walking Dead Season 6 Episode 9 was all about the aftermath of John's untimely death, Virginia's downfall, and the complicated dynamics of the different groups who wanted her dead. Jenna Elfman played every single beat of June's pain to perfection, and my appreciation only continued to grow as June realized all of this could have been avoided had she left Virginia to die. Losing John gave the narrative a ...]]>

Being responsible for the well-being of your friends and family is an incredible burden to have to bear. And no one knows this better than Zoey. Because what was once a gift -- a way to connect with her dying father -- has become an unbearable responsibility, and Zoey, as we saw on Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist Season 2 Episode 10, has reached her breaking point. With all the show's comedy and hilarious shenanigans peppered among the more serious moments, it's easy to forge...]]>

Where is our evite to the Rio family barbecue? Beth got hers on Good Girls Season 4 Episode 6, and she got to meet the big boss. Or grandma, as Rio refers to her. Considering how much hinges on Beth continuing to follow the money trail and stay on Rio’s good side, she had no choice but to follow through with the meeting. And Beth did whatever Beth needed to do, once again blurring that murky line that always exists between the pair. We’ve been screaming for more Rio for...]]>

If you were anxious to learn the truths behind the Tomb of Chaos, Charmed (2018) Season 3 Episode 10 was the one for you. But in true Charmed (2018) fashion, they answered questions and quickly posed a couple more. The Charmed Ones might now know how the Tomb came to be, but they still have an allergy to solve. Plus, everything may not be falling into place as nicely as it seems to be. Overall, "Bruja-Ha" was an action-packed and emotion-filled hour that effectively balanced character...]]>
