The Firm “Chapter Three” Review

Did The Firm need a two hour pilot on Sunday to introduce use to McDeare (who is supposed to be ten years older than Tom Cruise when he played the part in the 90s but honestly looks like he could pass for...

Revenge “Infamy” Review

This week's episode of Revenge was one of the most enjoyable episodes since the show began. While I understand that a lot of people dug the Tyler subplot, his was never my favorite part of the show. I like...

Shameless “Summertime” Review

Shameless was one of the best shows last year. It's a remake that knew how to be remade: it takes everything that worked really well in the original UK version and it ditched (or tried to ditch) the stuff...

Hell On Wheels “Timshel” Review

Revenge “Duress” Review

It seems like forever since shows like The Vampire Diaries and Revenge went on hiatus for the New Year. I didn't appreciate how much I'd miss my regular weekly dose of high stakes melodrama complete with...

2 Broke Girls “And The Secret Ingredient” Review

There is an art to the one-liner. Anybody who has had entire conversations using Simpsons and 30 Rock quotes alone knows this well. 2 Broke Girls is a show primed for the one-liner ultimate impact. Kat...

Hell On Wheels “Revelations” Review

This last episode of Hell On Wheels (not forever, alas, it's just going on hiatus) ended with Cullen and Elam riding off into the sunset. I think that's all I have to say about it, because I can't imagine...

Homeland “Marine One” Review

The season finale of Homeland cemented that this is not just the best new show of the year, but one of the best shows on television full stop. The show has the makings of a classic if it can sustain the...
