Angel, “Sense & Sensitivity” (S1E6)

“Sense & Sensitivity” is probably my favorite episode of Angel so far. We start with Cordelia and Doyle complaining that Angel isn’t grateful enough for their help, that he doesn’t ask how their days have gone, and so forth. We quickly … Continue reading

Angel, “Rm w/a Vu” (S1E5)

Hey look, I remembered that this blog exists. In the interests of continuing to write something, anything at all, about TV, I’m going to ignore the fact that I’m typically days, weeks, months, and years behind the rest of you … Continue reading

2012-13 network dramas

From The Daily Beast slideshow listing all 38, I think, new shows, my hopes and dreams about the coming fall season, noting that my carryover network dramas are: Castle, Revenge, and Hart of Dixie. Only two shows really got canceled … Continue reading

Smash, Castle, and The Fades

The DVR was on the verge of overflowing tonight because of the two-hour premiere of The River, a new Justified (don’t look at me like that, Erik — I’ll catch up soon), and a newish Lost Girl, so I found … Continue reading

Lost Girl S1E1, “It’s a Fae, Fae, Fae, Fae World”

“Lost Girl” is Syfy’s new import from Canada, a fantasy show that’s in the middle of its second season in the land of flappy-heads. It’s derivative, low-rent, and jaw-droppingly poorly acted, but I’m not giving up just yet. The pilot, … Continue reading

House of Lies 101 (1/8)

House of Lies is Showtime’s new dark comedy starring Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell as management consultants. That’s it. They’re management consultants. It’s refreshingly low-concept, actually. I just wish it were refreshingly compelling. The show, which had its premiere on … Continue reading

The Firm — Pilot / Chapter Two

I’d heard buzz about The Firm, NBC’s “ten years later” version of John Grisham’s novel: it’s awful, the dialogue is incompetent, there’s no way it survives, etc. This has to be exaggeration, right? It’s got all these awesome actors (Josh … Continue reading

Revenge 1.11, “Duress”

Revenge is a night-time soap with high standards for absurd melodrama, but this week’s episode, which began with Tyler waving a gun around at a clambake, took the proceedings up a notch. When your hour starts with a slow-motion swing … Continue reading

Angry Boys

(Erik kindly invited me to post here, and I repaid the kindness by basically never writing at all. I plan to fix that in 2012, in part by writing in manageable chunks. If you catch me going over 500 words, … Continue reading

Grimm 1.1 through 1.3

Grimm (NBC) is one of two fairy tale shows airing on network television this fall, with Once Upon a Time (ABC). I’ve already given up on the latter, having seen just two episodes — the writers did, I think, a … Continue reading
