After two of "Nikita's" strongest episodes to date, it seemed inevitable that "True Believer" would feel a little flat in comparison -- mostly because this week's story was less intrinsically personal than "3.0" and "Innocence" were for our main characters.
To Wednesday night "30 Rock" went with the big election arc conclusion. It was an occasionally confusing, but generally heartwarming episode.
We're about a quarter of the way through the season, and it's becoming more evident that although the execution is better than Season 1, Season 2 is way too overstuffed.
After two weeks of standalone episodes, it was good to get back into the meat of "Supernatural's" mytharc again, and with an episode written by Ben Edlund, we knew we'd be getting a story full of wit, heart and believable character beats.
Another week, another new episode, albeit on an unusual day this week. Welcome to this week's open comment thread for "There's No I In America," the Oct. 31 episode of "30 Rock."
This show cut both Christina and Blake's teams in half, leaving them each with only five contestants heading into next week's live rounds. The decisions were not too surprising, but there were a few wildcards thrown in.
While episode 4 of "The Mindy Project" could have been been destroyed by lame pranks and office costume contests, Mindy and the rest of the gang put their own spin on October 31st with creativity, inappropriate costumes and a lot of sweating.
This week's "Once Upon a Time" certainly fit in with the rest of ABC's Halloween fare, with an abundance of lightning and shambling monsters and creepy heart stealing -- but the end result left me a little cold.
"Homeland" isn't throwing out the rulebook simply to make people freak out. It's going to the deepest, most valuable part of any story -- it's digging into the characters' souls -- for extraordinarily compelling dramatic reasons.
While "The Good Wife" was "Waiting For The Knock," I was waiting to be sufficiently entertained. Don't get me wrong, this episode had highlights, but for the most part, it was a bit lacking.
I've been waiting for politics to become a storyline, and this appears to be the episode. Don Cheadle was my MVP guest star this week, though Kellan Lutz definitely brought it too.
Another week, another new episode. Welcome to this week's open comment thread for "Unwindulax," the Oct. 25 episode of "30 Rock."
This week's episode wasn't quite as infuriatingly regressive as 602, but it's becoming increasingly difficult to feel much empathy for any of the characters when they're all such manipulative, selfish wastes of oxygen. (I know, welcome to the entire premise of the show.)
Whatever you want to say about "Revolution's" flaws (and this earnest show has one huge stumbling block), there's no doubt that it's successfully avoiding a number of traps and pitfalls in its quest to help NBC keep the lights on.
As with any TV show lasting longer than two seasons or so, "30 Rock" has seen its fair share of grumblers who say that the show's glory days are long over.
In this week's episode, Emily is forced to acknowledge the consequesnces of her obsession with getting even. Sure, Emily's every fiber is devoted to revenge, but at what cost?
