The Blacklist Recap: Dr. James Covington

The Blacklist Recap: Dr. James Covington
Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you haven’t seen The Blacklist Season 2, Ep. 3 — “Dr. James Covington.” Welcome back, Tom, or should I say Dream Tom. Liz’s sub-conscious made sure she knew she still doesn’t trust Red and made her jumpy enough to accost an innocent citizen. And by innocent citizen I mean... Read more »

Series Premiere: Bad Judge Review

Series Premiere: Bad Judge Review
Look, I get that Bad Judge has a lot going against it. It’s premise, that a judge can show up to work drunk, in booty shorts and have sex with witnesses in her chambers, it utterly ridiculous. The inclusion of a friendship with a child is strange beyond words. And the title is embarrassingly bad.... Read more »

The Blacklist Recap: Lord Baltimore

The Blacklist Recap: Lord Baltimore
Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you haven’t seen The Blacklist Season 2, Ep. 1 – “Lord Baltimore.” Wouldn’t it be nice to live in a world where you have access to hellfire missiles to get what you want?

Series Premiere Review: The Mysteries of Laura

Series Premiere Review: The Mysteries of Laura
My biggest pet peeve, in life as in television, is children. More specifically, ill behaved children. Even more specifically, children who are ill behaved because their parents cannot control them.  Unfortunately for me, The Mysteries of Laura relies heavily on the idea that detective Laura Diamond (Debra Messing), a no-shit taking, rough around the edges,...

Series Premiere Review: From A to Z

Series Premiere Review: From A to Z
Watching the trailers for From A to Z, and there have been a lot of trailers, I thought I had a pretty good idea what the show was offering: an adorable romantic comedy told in half an hour increments. But I was wrong. Oh sure, an adorable romantic comedy was clearly what the creators were... Read more »

Series Premiere: Dracula Review

Series Premiere: Dracula Review
For a show that promoted itself with pictures of writhing, half naked women surrounding a vampire, NBC’s Dracula had a pretty slow start. And by pretty slow I mean really freaking slow. But is that really surprising given its source material is a 116-year-old literary classic? Given the influx of vampirism in popular culture it... Read more »

Series Premiere: The Michael J. Fox Show

Series Premiere: The Michael J. Fox Show
The Michael J. Fox Show wins this year’s award for laziest title, but much like you can’t judge a book by its cover, you can’t always judge a TV show by its title. The title may be a throwback to a staler brand of comedy, but The Michael J. Fox Show felt fresh, exciting and,... Read more »

Series Premiere: The Blacklist

Series Premiere: The Blacklist
In the ensuing months before the fall television season its impossible to miss some of the more aggressive campaigns for new shows. And when I say more aggressive campaigns I mean all of them. Being a savvy television viewer I like to think I can separate the cream from the chaff pretty easily from those... Read more »
