Mad Men Season Premiere Recap - A Little Kiss

Mad Men Season Premiere Recap - A Little Kiss
I find it difficult to transition from writing about a show that’s fraught with problems and zombies and horrible characters to a show full of brilliant characters and a plot that stays, frankly, well ahead of my lady brain. I can see almost every move before it happens on The Walking Dead. Two hours into... Read more »

True Blood Recap - Burning Down the House

True Blood Recap - Burning Down the House
Ha, True Blood.  I see what you did there.  I see what you did all over the place, actually.  But nice symmetry with the Talking Heads episode title and the craptacular Talking Heads cover over the end credits.  Why such a big suit? Even less subtle was the deus ex machina squirted all over this... Read more »

'True Blood' Recap - In a Sunburned Country

'True Blood' Recap - In a Sunburned Country
True Blood literally surprised me two whole times last night, two whole times where I went, “Whoa, did not see that coming.”  Good on you, True Blood.  Good on you. And!  Shockingly, we saw a couple of fringe (read: tedious) story lines actually tie themselves into the greater narrative of the season.  So, congratulations, Arlene... Read more »

True Blood Recap - In the Cold Grey Light of Dawn

True Blood Recap - In the Cold Grey Light of Dawn
  True Blood is still trying to make us care about characters and plot lines we’ll never care about.  I guess that’s our punishment for wanting to hang around just long enough to get a glimpse of Alcide’s pectorals.  Here’s what you saw last night: Sookie and Eric lying under trees, b-o-n-k-i-n-g: And Alcide saw...

'True Blood' Recap - She's Not There

Gary Cole, Mrs. Dursley, foxy boxing.  The season premiere of True Blood had it all.  Here’s where the first episode of season four found everyone: Time Jump: The first several seasons happened in quick succession.  This season fast forwards us a full year and a couple of weeks.  So there have been changes.  Big ones....

'True Blood' Finale Recap: All Hail Jason, King of the Hillbillies!

Adieu, Alcide!  See you next summer! From my recap at phillyBurbs.com: So after sitting through the worst pre-finale show in the history of pre-finale shows (Hey, everybody!  It’s our countdown to True Blood!  Get ready for two minutes of actual True Blood content and a half hour of…commercials for our upcoming HBO programming!), we were treated to one...

True Blood Recap - Fresh Blah

  Where have you gone, Alcide?  Come back!   This week’s True Blood was a doozie of a snooze.   Here’s my recap from phillyBurbs.com.   Penultimate seasonal episodes are meant to excite the viewer, to entice s/him to come back for the season finale.  The second-to-last episode of the season should be such a...

True Blood: Rise of the Decepticons

From my True Blood recap at phillyBurbs.com: Oh, so much True Blood deception!  Who’s lying?  Who’s truthing?  Who’s going to deep, dark supernatural places in their dreams and drug-induced hazes?  Let’s try to figure out who’s to be believed, and who just wants to hook up with you so he can stake you through the heart. Sookie,... Read more »

True Blood Recap: Tell Me Lies, Tell Me Sweet Little Lies

My True Blood recap from phillyBurbs.com: Everyone is lying to everybody in Bon Temps.  That’s pretty much what it came down to in this little episode that was low on action and high on setup for a hopefully action packed final few hours.  Crystal is lying to Jason.  The High Priestess of Vampire Politics thinks Eric...

True Blood Recap: Sexual Healing

My Mad Men recap is going to be late, late, late; but in the meantime, feel free to reminisce with me over the reunited cousins, donkey-carcass-eating hillbillies, and vampire fornicators of True Blood. My recap from phillyBurbs.com: This season of True Blood, every good episode has been followed by a mediocre episode.  So, I guess what... Read more »
