Fringe Review: The Alternates Unite
1/21/2012 3:34 PM
I think it's too easy to expect just because a character has gone bad they are now a shapeshifter. Until they are proven shifters, I'm willing to accept they're just bad. Makes the story far more exciting.
Fringe Review: Is Peter Already Home?

@Si Bellivia is when she played William Bell. :-) The light in Walternate's eye has been attributed to an issue with John Noble's eye in the past, but I can see why it would bring attention. For some reason I have more faith in this Walternate. How are you all feeling about him?

TV Fanatic Staff Round Table: The Best Show of 2011

Hi all! Here was my original answer. I wasn't able to easily decide, since there are so many different types of greatness when it comes to TV. But, what would I miss the most if it were to disappear - Fringe. Thus my eloquent one word answer.
Sci-Fi best show battle royale Fringe/Supernatural
Teen battle royale Lying Game/Pretty Little Liars
Cop Drama battle royale Southland/The Closer
New Drama battle royale Game of Thrones/Homeland
For the Adults Parenthood/Private Practice
The Closer Review: RIP, Turrell Baylor

I had that thought about Fritz, too. How she said without you, I wouldn't have anyone. How he responded that he's happy he's the kind of guy who can be counted on now. And yet in every home scene, that glass of wine sits between them. She didn't let him take a promotion so she could focus on her job...I'm really hoping they aren't going there because it would absolutely crush Brenda, but there were some clues that were really hard to overlook.
Of course, this all came to me AFTER I wrote the post. :-)
The Closer Review: One Fatal Moment

Your comments have made me tear up a bit. Thanks for being understanding of a young girl's mistakes and the growth from it. People may be angry when they are caught driving under the influence, but they should thank their lucky starts to have been stopped before doing something like this occurs. And it happens far too often.
I didn't mention in the review about Brenda and Fritz, but I was so proud of Brenda for finally understanding her husband and you could see his love for her as she spoke of his struggle, as well.
Hats off to The Closer. They certainly win this round!
TV Fanatic Staff Round Table: Best New Show of 2011
12/13/2011 5:09 PM
Well, Alex, I watch pretty much all of the shows, and watched the first few episodes of Hell on Wheels. Just didn't have the stomach for it. Found none of the characters even remotely engaging. Guess what - I also don't watch Breaking Bad or Sons of Anarchy, but can definitely agree with you on GoT, Homeland and Suits. So, what do you make of that?
American Horror Story Review: The Boy Dahlia
12/8/2011 2:28 PM
@James - Really, Where did you see that conversation with Ryan Murphy? I'd love to read it.
@Dessy - It is rather insane, isn't it? Thinking a dead mass murderer is doing someone a favor by trying to get her to choose suicide rather than do it without fully thinking it through.
I love this show!!!

Fringe Midseason Report Card: B
12/7/2011 1:46 PM
Actually, Review, if I had to choose a favorite character on the show overall, it would be Fauxlivia. I also prefer the alternate universe to our own, where there is no Peter at all. I am in awe of Anna Torv and her ability to be so many characters in so many different incarnations. Love love love.
However, I also think people overlook the difficulties Joshua Jackson has interacting with both sides while remaining the same character.
Finally, the facts of the show are that Peter is important to both universes. That doesn't take away from my love for all of the other characters, but I'd be remiss if I didn't point it out. Go back and read my reviews from last season. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.
Jennifer, as the ratings dwindle, I panic. I am living in the real world where people get impatient. I would be happy to let Fringe play out in it's own pace, for years to come. I ADORE the storytelling and the way it unfolds. But others do not, and that frightens me. I don't know that Fox has the patience, and for that reason, I want to know as much as I can as quickly as I can, so I can write about it and do my part to bring the viewers back! :-)

Parenthood Review: Turning Points
12/1/2011 1:16 PM
Hi Bill. I'm not sure if you were talking to me about not punishing Adam enough, but that's not what I said at all. My best case scenario in the situation would be that it happened, he knew it was wrong, he didn't tell his wife, and he let Rachel know it could never happen again because he loves his wife. His biggest mistake was telling his wife something that was unnecessary because no good could possibly have come of him telling it.
Others think that he was right to tell her, but if you look at what actually happened and the aftermath because he couldn't bury his guilt, well, he should have listened to Crosby. Crosby is making pretty decent decisions these days.
The Closer Review: For the Greater Good

I saw an interview with Kyra where she said that her team loves her and nobody on the team would do anything to hurt the team. That's what leads me farther away from Gabriel. He was, after all, her first friend. I think he's been pained over some things with her, but would not do anything to jeopardize their relationship.
Homeland Review: You Got To Win It In The Fire
11/27/2011 11:58 PM
Honestly, I'm confused as to where the CIA ends and the FBI begins. Once on American soil, shouldn't the FBI take over?
I wish one child could somehow change my opinion of my entire country, but I'd rather kill the child. The logic that a bad parent raises a bad child isn't far enough off the mark for me to engage.
Cards on the table, my sister was an anti-terrorist FBI agent and worked the bombing in Tanzania, as well as OKC and NYC and the Pentagon. One child does not, ever, make up for the loss of the innocents.

Hi Bandanab. I know...I wish we could mention previews in these posts, but they are "spoiler free" for those who wish it that way. I can't wait for the next episode. It looks amazing!!

Supernatural Review: Beware the Turducken
11/19/2011 11:57 AM
Aside from the damned leviathan stealing the thunder from the Jersey devil (which I was looking forward to) I enjoyed this ep for the stellar Bobby moments. It had genuine laughs and he can deliver some of the best lines on television. Jim Beaver! His name was escaping me and I could onlythink of his twitter handle. If that hole in the hat and his kickass chance to shine mean he's leaving the show and the leviathan are staying, I'm going to take serious issue with the Supernatural team. Losing one main character per season is enough. Period.
Fringe Review: The Forsaken
11/19/2011 11:33 AM
I know it was a harsh review. I have to base it on what is, not what will come. The preview is everything I have missed and I couldn't be more excited for the next episode. But standing alone in this week, and this season? To me it was a mess. A mess with two redeeming scenes that made me think. Fleeting scenes between Nina and Olivia. But I don't know if I should care yet or not. Because I don't know if Peter is going to stay here with these people or if he will go back to his own time. Is this is the group we will be working with going forward, I want to know so I can then invest in them accordingly.

I liked the subtlety and feeling of suspense. It was a nice change from the in your face episodes. I need range. At the very least, it sparks discussion!
Hart of Dixie Review: Out of Her Shell
11/15/2011 5:20 PM
Here's the thing that you missed about George and Zoe. If Zoe is actually THINKING that things are easy with George, then she's already thinking too much and they aren't "easy" at all. After she realized the ease at her conversation with George, she walked up to Wade and had a truly easy conversation. She dismisses him because he's not someone her parents would want her to be with, and she's still stuck in that mentality. He runs a bar. George is a lawyer. They're trying too hard, but if Wade doesn't win in the long run (assuming there is one), I will be shocked.
Plus one for the piglet. I've always wanted a piglet.
