The Blacklist 1.16 Review: Revenge for Ressler

The Blacklist 1.16 Review: Revenge for Ressler
I came into this episode of The Blacklist about thirty minutes late and it was like I just walking into a room on fire. Characters dying, Ressler’s girlfriend had apparently kicked and I didn’t know why, and Red was busy enjoying a performance of Swan Lake. Definitely not a good episode to come to the [...] Read More

Hannibal 2.03 Review: Lend an Ear to Your Admirer, Will

Hannibal 2.03 Review: Lend an Ear to Your Admirer, Will
If there were any doubt that Hannibal could keep the tension going with dear Will’s incarceration and upcoming trial, this episode should put your doubts to rest. Unfortunately, it doesn’t put Will’s doubts about Hannibal’s admiration for him to rest. In fact, I had a lot of questions about the who’s and the whys of [...] Read More

Elementary 2.18 Review: The Cancer Sniffer and the Legend

Elementary 2.18 Review: The Cancer Sniffer and the Legend
Yet another middling episode of Elementary but with a rather heartwarming B-plot for Detective Bell made for decent TV watching. The main case in in this – the death of a research scientist working on a mechanism that could sniff out cancer in a patient’s breath – started out fairly interesting. The scientist goes into [...] Read More

Hannibal 2.02 Review: Eye Believe You
On tonight’s Hannibal there was the tearing of flesh (and hearts, poor dear manipulative Will), human roast, breaking legs, and an “eye” on God. And the intensity stayed taught throughout the 42 minutes. But what else would we expect from our favorite cannibal? If you take away anything from this episode, it should be that [...] Read More

Elementary 2.17 Review: Behold the Ear Puns

Elementary 2.17 Review: Behold the Ear Puns
I can definitely say that Elementary has not made me say “Eew!” until this episode. An as a middling episode goes, it wasn’t bad. It had a nice little icky twist at the end that was pretty clever, and even some character development for a character I didn’t particularly care for until now. The case [...] Read More

The Vampire Diaries 5.15 “Gone Girl” Review

The Vampire Diaries 5.15 “Gone Girl” Review
Katherine has already had one deathbed episode on The Vampire Diaries and “Gone Girl” is the saying goodbye reprise with Nadia in her place as the one who is suffering and remembering her past. Katherine has touched a lot of lives, for good or bad (well, mostly bad) and the one person who has hunted her for [...] Read More

The Blacklist 1.15 Review: Judge and Jury

The Blacklist 1.15 Review: Judge and Jury
It’s not often you will hear me say that the best part of an episode of The Blacklist revolved around Liz’s annoying husband Tom, but in this case, it’s true. I actually really liked the Judge’s storyline of single minded, misguided justice – and Dianne Wiest is always a treat to see – but honestly, [...] Read More

Hannibal 2.01 Review: Will Gets An Earful
We have waited for the feast and we were not disappointed. Hannibal delivered just the right mixture of horror, intrigue, suspense and gallows humor in it’s season 2 premiere that has all Fannibals asking “Is it next Friday yet?!” When last we left our dear Will Graham, he was horking up the ear of little-girl-lost-cause [...] Read More

The Vampire Diaries 5.14 “No Exit” Review
There are several characters that end up in situations they have no control over on The Vampire Diaries, while Katherine continues her plan to manipulate Stefan into succumbing to his feelings for Elena. Katherine’s downfall is going to come courtesy of her Stefan desires as there are too many plates spinning with too many inquisitive minds. Damon [...] Read More
