Have you ever had a bad day or a lengthy rough period in your life? At times, have you felt as though you are too fragile for the world and that everything around you is crumbling?
After all, when a show lets you down, there's always shopping. But launch a second-screen app with more information about the show I've just abandoned? That doesn't sound right, does it? But to do what? Facebook? Email? Amazon?
The local staff is critical as they are the ones, who before the doctor arrives, go to the villages and seek out the patients. The staff also organizes the place where the cataract surgery occurs. Often these places are primitive in nature.
It's Halloween at Grey-Sloan and there are zombies, maggots, little girls getting almost scared to death and the ghost of Heather Brooks to make this episode feel, in April's words, completely random, and not at all supernatural.
"Grey's Anatomy" is to television what Pinterest is to the Internet. It's lines from this episode, like "Make this year count!" or "Invest in your brand!" and "Let it go!" that make me think of the sort of JPGs with paisley backgrounds and serif fonts my mother (whom I adore) attaches to her emails.
Somebody over at "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." has been listening. This week, we got some much-needed character development as well as a more substantial tease about our larger menace -- they even got a name!
You can say what you want about this soapy, often silly, show, but there's something to be said for its gender dynamics. Sure, it relies on some tried and true stereotypes, but just when you think a character is going to fall into one, they make some moves to break through them.
For an episode with such a snarky title, "You're No Angel Yourself" was surprisingly sympathetic. Juliette, Deacon and Gunnar -- all frustratingly stubborn denizens of "Nashville" -- were rounded out by their respective strengths over the course of the hour.
Over the course of watching this series, I have come to realize that Olivia is a great example of a successful entrepreneur. Here is my list of the top five traits I believe businesswomen can learn from Olivia.
"Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." is becoming frustratingly too much like a CBS procedural. This is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and I think the viewers are going to demand more than a new case every week with a few minutes of exposition and character development thrown in from time to time.
Miss Rayna James has lost her voice, and it would be very sad and shocking, if three weeks of "Nashville" promos hadn't explicitly told us that would happen.
"Lost Girl" was a heartbreaking hour for Emma and Snow, juxtaposed beautifully with Snow's own journey of self-discovery, in which Charming showed his fiancee that -- as many Disney heroes have learned before her -- belief in oneself is the only "magic" a person truly needs to overcome their obstacles.
My concern is not about whether a plot works and is full of holes, but that we see such police brutality depicted all the time on many TV cop shows.
What happens when cable, telco and satellite companies realize there's an abundance of new, independent programming out there, free of the ruthless bundling and never-ending fee escalation that define their network relationships?
Mind you, Franck wasn't willing to settle for the sort of half-hearted hand-drawn animation that you used to see on Saturday morning television back in the late 1970s / early 1980s. He wanted to do something richer, far more highly detailed.
It's my favorite time of year! Sure, crisp autumn days and reasons to buy new boots are nice, but the fall crop of new shows is what makes me giddy every September.
