Castle Review: 6.23 “For Better or Worse”
Turns out it was for the worse. Can you seriously look me in the eyes and tell me with a straight face that you liked that cliffhanger? Because it seems that a large part of the fandom is just plain furious about last night’s Castle season finale. Following a ridiculously amazing episode, “For Better or [...] Read More

The Blacklist 1.22 Review: The Wrath of Berlin
The first season finale of The Blacklist had many gasp-worthy moments. With the arrival of the mysterious Berlin, the body count around Red goes up considerably and a couple of important team members are taken down. And I was very happy to see who they had cast as the nefarious Berlin. Peter Stormare is utterly [...] Read More

Hannibal 2.11 Review: Destroyer and Creator
There were many times in Hannibal lately where I’ve asked my TV what exactly is going on. And I’m sure I’m not the fan watching the last few episodes and wanting to ask Will Graham what in the hell is going on. The things I thought he was capable of and what he was willing [...] Read More

Elementary 2.23 Review: For The Good Of Sherlock
The last episode of Elementary was fraught with turmoil and suspense as Mycroft pulled something new from his bag of tricks, utilizing MI-6 operatives to save Joan from French mobsters.

The Blacklist 1.21 Review: Now It Begins
If you thought the two-part episodes of The Blacklist about Anton Garrick were tense, they’ve got nothing on the coming apocalypse that is Berlin. And as good as the set up for this ubber-baddie has been, I really hope they get someone exceptional to play him. When last we left, Liz Keen was officially a [...] Read More

The Vampire Diaries 5.20 “What Lies Beneath” Review
A trip to a cabin in the woods is never a relaxing prospect on The Vampire Diaries (see also trips to a lake house) and it is even worse when there is a giant secret and heightened feelings. Not to mention the Travelers who are hunting down Stefan and Elena so they can drain them of their [...] Read More

Elementary 2.22 Review: Paint It Black, Red and Shades of Grey
This episode of Elementary is easily one of the best this season, and maybe one of the best of the series so far. Although the ending was a bit abrupt and left us with questions that are surely to be answered in the next episode, I would have liked to have seen this be a [...] Read More

The Blacklist 1.20 Review: Red’s Walls Come Tumbling Down
Red’s little lies and omissions are coming home to roost in this episode of The Blacklist. And I gotta say, I totally called the revelation between him and Lizzie in my last review. It really was the only think Tom could fling at Liz to try to drive a wedge between her and Red at [...] Read More
