Hannibal 2.06 Review: I Am My Own Last Meal

Hannibal 2.06 Review: I Am My Own Last Meal
Lots of shockers in this episode of Hannibal, and even a few tense moments for our favorite cannibal. Suffice it to say, the gloves came off last episode between Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter, and neither of them is backing down. Hannibal is a bit more subtle with his threats, however. Will is definitely not [...] Read More

Elementary 2.19 Review: The Truth in the Tooth

Elementary 2.19 Review: The Truth in the Tooth
It’s never a good sign when I come in late to an episode of Elementary and have the case figured out in five minutes. But, as I went back and re-watched from the beginning, I discovered that this case has some interesting character driven tidbits that make it worth the while. And while the case [...] Read More

The Blacklist 1.18 Review: Dead Men Walking
The truth is as plain as the nose on your … wait, never mind. This episode of The Blacklist definitely had a weirdo for a bad guy, but at least he was a somewhat sympathetic antagonist. Even if he looked like he was one step away from auditioning on The Walking Dead. Lets talk about [...] Read More

The Neighbors 2.20 Review – Impending Arrivals

The Neighbors 2.20 Review – Impending Arrivals
After a three week stint of stand-out episodes from the alien comedy (my apologies for my absense) last night’s episode of The Neighbors served the exact purpose it should have – transitioned into the final episodes of the season. The Weavers’ story was relatively, well…irrelevant in the grand scheme of the episode.  Marty and Debbie compete [...] Read More

Hannibal 2.05 Review: A Bloody Tableau is Will’s Design

Hannibal 2.05 Review: A Bloody Tableau is Will’s Design
It’s hard to catch your breath in this episode, especially if you spent most of it cursing at Hannibal, cheering on Will’s “admirer” and gasping at the final scenes. Personally, I thought Hannibal should not get to have his people and eat them too – especially if they are one of my favorite characters – [...] Read More

The Vampire Diaries 5.17 “Rescue Me” Review

The Vampire Diaries 5.17 “Rescue Me” Review
Elena has only been back for two episodes on The Vampire Diaries since Katherine borrowed her body and it already feels like she is stuck in a Damon relationship discussion rut. This is acknowledged at the end of the episode when she explains why she has to travel back to college alone as otherwise “we’re never going [...] Read More

The Blacklist 1.17 Review: Bad Boys Who Lie

The Blacklist 1.17 Review: Bad Boys Who Lie
I’m wondering if a better title for this episode of The Blacklist would be “Bad Boys.” Because this is definitely an instance of boys behaving badly because of a girl. I was afraid this was going to be a case of international cyber espionage, but it was actually a lot more complex and yet not [...] Read More

Hannibal 2.04 Review: Playing Katz and Mouse

Hannibal 2.04 Review: Playing Katz and Mouse
If you weren’t screaming at the end of this episode of Hannibal then you need to have your pulse checked. Not screaming in revulsion but in fear for a favorite character who may have just landed on Hannibal’s cutting board. Say it ain’t so, Show! There are many powerful themes going on in tonight’s episode [...] Read More

The Vampire Diaries 5.16 “While You Were Sleeping” Review

by Emma Fraser / March 21, 2014
The Vampire Diaries 5.16 “While You Were Sleeping” Review
Even if Katherine hadn’t left Elena a parting gift that induces hallucinations and makes her crave vampire blood, she was always going to question why no one realized that she wasn’t herself for such a long period on The Vampire Diaries. This just gives it a stronger kick as Katherine gets to mess with Elena from beyond [...] Read More
