On Murphy Brown Season 11 Episode 4, Murphy takes on author Ed Shannon whose views are entirely out of line with Murphy's. He's supposed to represent a hardcore Republican, and Murphy has to decide whether she's going to give him airtime on her show. She passes. Let me start with the positive in this episode because I feel like this one went from political comedy smartly done to preachy. It's a fine line, and this crossed it. But, as I said, let me start with the positi...]]>

<![CDATA[Home to Hold Onto]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Station-19/Season-2/episode-3/reviews/Home-to-Hold-Onto
Easy breezy Andy? Yeah, right.  Andy was anything but on Station 19 Season 2 Episode 3, and pretty much every other time we've seen her.  She may be trying to take everything in stride, but she's as uptight as ever.  More than uptight, she's completely self-absorbed. She keeps making everything about her when she should be giving credit where it's due.  She realized that she made the wrong call and nearly got that poor woman killed. Instead of focusing on the fact t...]]>

<![CDATA[Gods and Monsters]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Supernatural/Season-14/episode-2/reviews/Gods-and-Monsters-41386
THIS was the hour I was waiting for! They went full speed ahead on Supernatural Season 14 Episode 2, and I was pleasantly surprised by how fantastic this hour of television was.  Everything worked extremely well together, and every single sequence had me glued to my screen which is a rarity with many shows on the air today.  Castiel being the parental figure in the bunker was a genius idea. There was no reason for him to be on the hunter for Michael because as he said, Mi...]]>

<![CDATA[It's Her Kid]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/How-To-Get-Away-With-Murder/Season-5/episode-4/reviews/It-s-Her-Kid
There's a lot to unpack this week, from Bonnie finally being let in on the secret, to another win for team Annalise, but can we start with the most intriguing part of the hour? Why does Bonnie have Nate's phone in the flashforward? Why? We've been fooled into thinking Nate was a goner before (or perhaps that was just me) but with Bonnie being as shady as ever and Annalise's guttural cries at the end of How to Get Away with Murder Season 5 Episode 4, it seems very possible that Nate i...]]>

<![CDATA[Jeremy Bearimy]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/The-Good-Place/Season-3/episode-5/reviews/Jeremy-Bearimy
The Good Place kicked off its third season with a strong start, but ever since the premiere, the quality and plot of the show have been steadily declining. The Good Place Season 3 Episode 5 is a prime example of this. Related: The Good Place Season 3 Episode 4 Review: The Snowplow The personalities of the characters prevent the show from ever truly being substandard, but recently, The Good Place just hasn't managed to hit the audience with the same level of shock and interest as i...]]>

<![CDATA['Twas A Dark And Stormy Night]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/The-Haunting-of-Hill-House/Season-1/episode-5/reviews/Twas-A-Dark-And-Stormy-Night
Wow, this show is one twisted, scary ride. As they make the push towards the latter half of the season, The Haunting of Hill House Season 1 Episode 5 finally allowed us to get a look at Nelly Crain. We know bits and pieces of who she is as a kid, but it took this hour to show us the adult Nelly, who was able to form a semblance of a normal existence for a brief moment in time.  That is until the bent-neck lady decided to make her triumphant return.  Nell's story is a hau...]]>

<![CDATA[Ride Along]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Chicago-PD/Season-6/episode-4/reviews/Ride-Along
If you ever follow advice picked up from a TV show, let it be the wisdom Antonio imparted wisdom on Chicago PD Season 6 Episode 4: "the cover-up is always worse than the crime." Antonio's advice played out in the real-world shortly after Burgess took a "hint" from Brennan. She lied to the review board about having a ride along in the car when she responded to a call. Apparently, the rule is you cannot engage with a suspect when you have a civilian with you.  The momen...]]>

<![CDATA[Friday Night Dinner]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/A-Million-Little-Things/Season-1/episode-4/reviews/Friday-Night-Dinner
Everyone is invited to pizza night!  On A Million Little Things Season 1 Episode 4, there were flashbacks, Gary accidentally found out Maggie's secret, and the gang set their differences aside to break pizza dough at their weekly "framily" dinner.  There were also lots of feels, but what else is new? This show is a total feels fest with each hour.  There are a lot of tidbits that came out during this hour that piqued my curiosity. As much time as we spend with this group...]]>

Note to self: don't live in a house built directly over the portal to hell.  Still, American Horror Story Season 1 was iconic for a reason, and even all these years later it continues to prove why it brought about so much success with it. Taking a walk down memory lane never felt so fun, and it never managed to envoke as much emotion as checking in with all our favorite characters did. There is clear strength in good characterization that doesn't get overwhelmed by the plot...]]>

Spencer may only be a teenager, but he's carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders.  His unselfishness is admirable, but as everyone tried to point out to him on All American Season 1 Episode 2, it's time to start focusing on himself.  He can't be there for everyone else in his life if he doesn't take care of himself first.  There's a reason flight attendants tell us to put our own mask on before assisting someone else. The more Spencer spreads himself thin tryin...]]>

<![CDATA[Torn Between Two Lovers]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Modern-Family/Season-10/episode-4/reviews/Torn-Between-Two-Lovers
Love is in the air on Modern Family Season 10 Episode 4, and Haley is dead center. I'm glad they didn't drag out the whole love triangle for too long because that could've gotten old. The way the whole thing played out was probably no surprise to any longtime fans of the show, as Haley chose Dylan in the end. Good. Arvin was no match for Haley. He was nice enough, sure, but Haley never would've been happy with him. As Arvin realized in the end, he never would've been happy...]]>

<![CDATA[Chapter Thirty-Seven]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Riverdale-US/Season-3/episode-2/reviews/Chapter-Thirty-Seven-41377
Juvie isn't going to be easy for Archie Andrews. Riverdale Season 3 Episode 2 showcased our favorite redheaded football player's first few days behind bars. He tried to make the best of the situation, but Archie needs to face the facts: he's not in the safety of Riverdale anymore. Convicted life is a whole new reality. Agreeing to the manslaughter plea deal wasn't the best idea. And Archie was probably realizing his mistake after the first scuffle. With all things considered...]]>

The secrets are piling up at Gaffney.  Will really racked up his tally on Chicago Med Season 4 Episode 4, repeatedly lying to his fiance about the mess he's found himself in all to get them a cheap wedding venue.  Spoiler: the price of the venue probably won't end up mattering.  Please, please let that be an accurate spoiler.  If Natalie ends up marrying Will after all this nonsense, she may deserve the heartache she'll get.  It's stupid that he's lying to her ...]]>

Sometimes you just have to ask, "Was there a point here?" It was body parts sent as bouquets on Criminal Minds Season 14 Episode 3. Rossi found himself in the middle of this disgusting case of the week. It turned out that the unsub and his enabler were both big fans of his true-crime books. Fortunately, he was able to use his fame to wrap up this case with one less murder. From the beginning, it appears that David wasn't allowed to enjoy his success as an author. Ja...]]>

There is a reason why this series follows that family drama that reduces fans to a puddle of tears.  New Amsterdam Season 1 Episode 4 was an hour that would have most people reaching for the box of tissues. If you happened to watch it after This Is Us, then it's possible you're currently drowning in your own tears. Thanks for joining us!  New Amsterdam's specialty is tugging on heartstrings, and this hour was no exception.  There is something magical happening with telev...]]>

The truth might set you free, but you better be prepared for the consequences. The Pierce family learned that the hard way on Black Lightning Season 2 Episode 2. Thanks to the metahuman powers of Issa Williams, candor nearly tore the family apart. Everyone finally came clean about their inner thoughts, frustrations, and feelings in what was a very uncomfortable dinner. But, the family was better off because of it. No longer could they hide behind concerns and regrets. Jefferson, Aniss...]]>

<![CDATA[Vietnam]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/This-Is-Us/Season-3/episode-4/reviews/Vietnam
Jack Pearson, we thought we knew you.  On what may be the most unique episode to date, This Is Us Season 3 Episode 4 explored bits and pieces of Jack's past from his time in Vietnam to the day his little brother was born.  "Vietnam" was a considerable risk for Dan Fogelman to take. Exploring Jack's past at first seemed a little out of the show's element. However, as the episode progressed it was clear that was far from the case.  "Vietnam" wasn't about war, it was abou...]]>

Things were intense and horrifying on FBI Season 1 Episode 4 as Maggie, OA, and the team had to deal with not just one shooter loose in the city, but two of them! Jubal speaks the truth about everything. Including how many black SUVs are in the city. That's just about the best cover for anyone who has committed a crime. They are literally everywhere, and without even a make, it isn't much of a lead. There was enough confusion happening with a shooter on the loose, why the hell...]]>

I must admit that I didn't have high hopes for The Rookie.  First off, the show's concept seemed a little light-weight. A 40-year-old is the oldest rookie to join the LAPD. It left me wondering what difference that would make after he gets through his initial training because there are plenty of 40-something police officers.  Then there was the show creator, Alexi Hawley, who was also the co-showrunner for Castle Season 8. I loved Castle, but you only have to read my Castle Se...]]>

Todd Helbing … you are so schwaay, babaay. After now watching two episodes of The Flash Season 5, I can’t help but wonder if this is the direction Helbing has wanted to take the show since he sat down in the writers' room during The Flash Season 1, but because he wasn't showrunner, he couldn't call the shots.  He's definitely calling them now, and I don’t think The Flash could have hoped for anyone better to do the job.  Related: The Flash Season 5 Episode 1 Review: Nora ...]]>

Pride's new position has been a win/win so far. The possibilities were on full display on NCIS: New Orleans Season 5 Episode 4. Pride is taking advantage of his title of Special Agent in Charge of the Southeast Region, cherry picking what he wants to work on. Meanwhile, his "former" team gets a kindly caretaker in Hannah to nudge them along, who seems more like a veteran teammate than a boss exerting her authority to make a point. It's an interesting study of contrast t...]]>

It's a sad day of realization on The Gifted Season 2 Episode 4, as Andy makes his choice clear. He doesn't hesitate for a second to attack Lauren, and everyone is heartbroken. Caitlin convinced herself, as any mother would, that he was still her baby boy and must be scared. The Hellfire Club must be making him perform like some circus monkey. Right? No. We found out right along with Reed, Caitlin, and the rest of the Underground that sweet, meek, and scared Andy is gone. ...]]>

The ghost of Roseanne was felt throughout the entire half-hour. Roseanne's death was quickly addressed on The Conners Season 1 Episode 1, and the spoiler of Roseanne passing away due to opioids was revealed to be true.  Many people will have a problem with the way Roseanne was killed off her own show but it made the most sense when you think back to Roseanne Season 10 Episode 9.  Roseanne was shown to have issues with opioids and the most organic way for her to pass on wo...]]>

The Scoobies are good at fighting monsters, but they're terrible at planning interventions. Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 3 Episode 15 showed that they only made things worse for the Faith situation. With a little more care and planning, they could've gotten through to her. I believed it when I was eight years old; and I still believe it now after rewatching again. They completely fumbled in convincing her to trust them. Let's discuss why by rewatching "Consequences."

Has Marshall won you guys over yet?  If you weren't a fan of Conrad's dad up until this point, then please tell me after The Resident Season 2 Episode 4 you're willing to cut the guy some slack. Marshall's verbal smackdown in that elevator was so damn satisfying and will go down as one of the best moments in the series' history.  Conrad lives to see another day of practicing medicine, respect for Marshall has reached new heights, and it wasn't the only verbal smackdown in the hour...]]>

Will there ever be an hour of The Good Doctor that doesn't reduce you to tears? The Good Doctor Season 2 Episode 4 delivered new medical cases, each of which tugged on the heartstrings, and those were only the cases of the week.  Hell, the show delved deeper than ever into the personal lives of the characters, and there was not one wasted moment.  Let's start with Shaun and Lea because the emotional hour bookends with the friends navigating their fraught relationship.  ...]]>

Did anybody else get some serious Doctor Who vibes from Manifest Season 1 Episode 4? Okay, so the similarities were limited to the visions of the stone woman and Who's weeping angels, but those things are creepy.  We may have met a new "castaway," but we didn't learn anything more about the disappearance. What caused it and where the plane was are still the questions we're dying to have answered.  While there was no progress on the mystery (or an explanation as to why eve...]]>

Imagine being in excruciating pain or unimaginable danger, calling 911 and then hearing the line go dead.  Every single day there are emergencies all over the country, and some of those emergencies are life or death, and the dispatcher on the other end of the line is literally helping saves lives. To think anyone in that job could be so callous is frightening.  But that's what we saw on 9-1-1 Season 2 Episode 5, as Gloria went from hero to zero in record time.  Gloria s...]]>

Magnum P.I. just keeps getting better and better! Magnum does his best James Bond impression on Magnum P.I. Season 1 Episode 4, but his little stunt to test an art collector's security system makes him a prime suspect when the art is stolen, and the collector turns up dead! We all know Magnum isn't a murderer or a thief, but the circumstances sure did make him seem suspect, didn't they? It wasn't a surprise when Katsumoto pulled Magnum in for questioning.

It's a wonder these children ever slept growing up.   With bent-kneck ladies, mysterious knocking and larger than life floating men roaming the halls, I don't know how anyone was ever able to close their eyes. For Luke and Nell, they at least had one another to feel less alone. But the older children were not as lucky.  The Haunting of Hill House Season 1 Episode 3 and The Haunting of Hill House Season 1 Episode 4 further shaded in two more Crain children and gave us further insig...]]>
