Elementary 2.06 Review: A Study In Partnerships

Elementary 2.06 Review: A Study In Partnerships
It is always a treat to get to know the ensemble characters who do not receive as much screen time as the leads. In this episode of Elementary, it Captain Gregson who is pushed into the forefront, somewhat unwillingly. I’ve always enjoyed watching Aidan Quinn and he is in top form  in this episode, where [...] Read More

The Vampire Diaries 5.05 “Monster’s Ball” Review
On The Vampire Diaries many characters die and by now it is clear that being dead isn’t necessarily a permanent thing. Death can be avoided through various methods including vampire powers, magical rings, a fancy spell or vampire blood and Silas’ big plan is to find a way to die permanently. Silas is the only [...] Read More

Homeland 3.05 Review: She’s Always Been On Her Own
Whether or not you believed the big play that was revealed last week, that Carrie and Saul were playing the long game with her committal to the nut house, Saul let Quinn in on it this week to help with surveillance of Carrie and though he was shocked, he was also damned impressed by what [...] Read More

Elementary 2.05 Review: The Assassin’s Creed
We’re seeing more and more in Elementary that Joan Watson is more willing to have a life outside the cases and the puzzles that make up living with Sherlock Holmes, while Sherlock is content to dig through decades old case files when a fresh murder isn’t to be had. Unfortunately for this episode, the most [...] Read More

Castle: 6.05 “Time Will Tell” Review
Time travel and my favorite crime-fighting duo. I just couldn’t ask for more. In this week’s Castle, we followed the story of a supposed time-traveler from the future who says his mission is to stop an event that would cause billions of deaths in about twenty years. Obviously, Castle (and myself) was over the moon about [...] Read More

Homeland 3.04 Review: That Happened

Homeland 3.04 Review: That Happened
It was another Nicolas Brody-free episode of Homeland, but we were subjected to another insufferable storyline with Dana Brody, which is tantamount to sitting through 15 minutes of fingernails on a chalkboard. The best thing that could come of it is that her new boyfriend/murderer does what he apparently does best and relieves us of her [...] Read More

The Neighbors 2.05 Review – The Greatest Holiday of All Time

Elementary 2.04 Review: Poisonous Pen Pals
Getting interesting back story on our favorite characters is always a treat. And in this episode of Elementary, we get a few juicy tidbits of information on our favorite sleuth, Sherlock. But it is not without some heartache. And this episode also forces the viewer to decide if the murderers should even be punished, or [...] Read More

The Vampire Diaries 5.03 “Original Sin” Review
Well holy exposition fairy that is a whole lot of mythology to take in as we go back even further with The Vampire Diaries timeline, predating even the Original family. That’s right, we find out exactly why there are doppelgangers and the exact reason behind Silas’ immortality. In part this is a retelling of the story [...] Read More
