I wonder if it could be that the trio’s next attempt at escape from the crate will involve overcoming the truck driver guy by striking him and then staying at arm’s length and avoiding the taser thing THAT HE CARRIES WITH HIM ALWAYS

Kylie Bunbury was the one who brought me to these series, but I am afraid she is not enough to keep me watching it.
I was never a big fan of one-big-story-arc for police/thriller dramas. You need strong writing and interesting characters to support it. I see neither here.
I find the bad guys annoying (that state Read more

First off ... Mrs. Funkhouser made an interesting observation a couple episodes ago that Ronald’s mother is not real, just a voice in his head. The way she talks to him is all about guilt and suspicion. Read more

Yes, yes, yes to all the comparisons to Kevin Williamson’s recent “edgy” past three tv series. I immediately started thinking of them while watching this week (and somehow I didn’t even recognize that the one actress was a lead in Tell Me a Story season 2, though the characters are so similar—but I admit that most of Read more

the most realistic part of this episode is how Bunbury’s Cassie reacts to Legarski’s entire schtick. (The second most realistic part is Denise’s defense of Legarski, as uncomfortable as it is.) From moment one, Cassie doesn’t find Legarski quirky or even just square: She finds him to be the creepy sociopath that he Read more

I want to feel again after ABC canceled Whiskey Cavalier and then personally tricked me by renewing Stumptown and then canceling it. Read more

Also, the “bad cop shoots another officer in the head unexpectedly at the end of the pilot episode” trope will never be done better than The Shield.

I spent the last few weeks watching late-series The Practice (S6-8), and now that I’m done with that, I could use some more David E. Kelley. Plus, LaToya reviews!

I don’t know if I’m going to watch this show, but I want to thank you, LaToya, for being the only other person besides me who watched Whiskey Cavalier.

Part of me wonders if moving up the death was a good move—it’s like if Game of Thrones had killed off Ned Stark at the end of the first episode; it would have been a shock, but not as much as it ultimately was after spending so much time with him as the ostensible protagonist. On the other hand, this probably is the Read more

This show has always been about dysfunctional family, but this season drove it home even more then ever, with the addition of Michael as the “bad twin” to disrupt everything. His ability to undermine confidence, sow doubt, create chaos, and wreck relationships with a few words was terrifying. Read more

Man, that clip of Season 1 Amenadiel and Maze only goes to demonstrate how much they’ve both changed and grown/evolved/diminished as characters... I don’t say diminished as a bad thing, but the cold-hearted demon is now an aimless, wounded teddy bear looking for anyone to accept and love her, while the ultra-focused, Read more

Anyone else see the Pete twist coming a mile away? Though the shot of Ella crawling into the secret purple-lit Orchid room was VERY cool.

I am intrigued by point four! Especially if that’s how he thinks he can promise Maze a soul

Two angels fighting?  No biggie, we’ve seen it with Lucifer/Amenadiel, Lucifer/Uriel, Amenadiel/Uriel, Amenadiel/Remiel, Lucifer/Michael, etc.  But three duking it out?  It’s God time.

As of now I like this season so far but I think Season 4 was still better. Maybe that will change with Part 2 but we’ll see. But yeah this was great, I liked Part 1 and I look forward to what they do next. Read more
