Suits – Midseason Premiere “Enough is Enough” Retrospective. Louis Litt Day.

As the Suits midseason premiere approached, I was cautiously optimistic about things to come. As someone who’s not a fan of excessive internal conflict among central characters, I mentally prepared myself for the fallout that was seemingly inevitable due to Louis (Rick Hoffman) learning the truth about Mike (Patrick J. Adams).

Grimm – “Tribunal” Recap. The New Normal.

“Tribunal” picks up exactly where “Wesenrein” left off with Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) shackled, standing among a sea of cloaked figures chanting “Wesenrein” over and over. “Grandmaster” Charlie Riken (Brandon Quinn) presides over the so-called trial accusing Monroe of “violating the law” by “marrying outside of your bloodline” and “the befriending of a Grimm.” Back at the precinct, Captain Renard (Sasha Roiz) is concerned about Sgt. Wu (Reggie Lee) so he asks Nick (David Giuntoli) and Hank (Russell Hornsby) to make sure Wu can handle it when a Wesen “woges.” Meanwhile, Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch) and Rosalee (Bree Turner) continue to review the wedding guest list to figure out who betrayed Rosalee and Monroe to the Wesenrein.

American Horror Story: Freak Show – “Curtain Call” Retrospective. Life After Mars.

After a season of watching nightmarish clowns, psychopathic killers, and a homicidal ventriloquist terrorize the town of Jupiter, my expectations going into the finale of American Horror Story: Freak Show (AHS: Freak Show) were pretty high. So imagine my surprise when what I expected to see—abundant gore and a literal blood bath—evolved into something poignant and heartfelt by the end.

Backstrom – “Dragon Slayer” Review. Been There, Seen That

The two most commonly aired shows today are either about detectives/cops or the medical field. Somewhere in the human psyche, we are interested in people who save lives and/or investigate the mystery of the week. Backstrom is a detective series that tries to be fun, witty, gritty, and interesting, but it just tries too hard.

Justified – “Fate’s Right Hand” Review. Going Out with a Bang.

Justified may be on its way out but it’s not going quietly into that good night; no way. “Fate’s Right Hand” takes you by the scruff of your collar and throws you into a world of hurt, betrayal, and just the right amount of humor for good measure. If you were disappointed with season five, what I’ve seen in the first three episodes of season six makes up for it ten times over. I can’t wait to find out what happens this season.

Castle – “Private Eye, Caramba!” Recap. Shh! Don’t Telenovela.

“Private Eye, Caramba!” is a fun and sexy episode! In the opening scene, a beautiful young woman dressed in a glittering gown runs down a dark alley and just before her neighbor is able to buzz her into her apartment, someone grabs her. The next thing you know, the young starlet is dead. Anahita Menendez (Cindy Luna) was one of the stars of a hit telenovela but there is much more to her death than meets the eye.

Sleepy Hollow – “Pittura Infamante” Recap. Step Aside Dorian Gray.

Italian for ‘defaming portrait,’ the title of this week’s #SleepyHollow, “Pittura Infamante,” puts the portrait of Dorian Gray to shame. The subject of the painting isn’t out and about, ageless and unscathed as Mr. Gray but trapped within the canvas harboring a dark and sinister secret.

Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce – “Rule 17: Ask the Answer Lady!” Review. Tellin’ It Like It Is.

The combination of comedic and dramatic scenes is what Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce (#GG2D) does extremely well. In “Rule 17: Ask the Answer Lady!” (“Rule 17”), Director Brian Dannelly knows exactly when to mix humor into an otherwise serious scene, and when not to. As a matter of fact, the very first scene of “Rule 17” is total comedy at its best and had me laughing out loud from the first shot.

Shameless – “I’m the Liver” Retrospective. Babies and Boys and Problems, Oh My!

Episodic writer Krista Vernoff provides some of the best, most witty dialogue in this week’s installment of Shameless. If I have one complaint about “I’m the Liver,” it’s the pacing. The episode switches from scene to scene, story line to story line so quickly, you barely have time to digest what you’ve just seen before another story line pops up. I mean, some scenes contain only one or two lines of dialogue! Other than that, “I’m the Liver” is an extremely entertaining episode.

Grimm – “Wesenrein” Recap. Haters Gonna Hate.

#Grimm comes back from winter break with a vengeance! “Wesenrein” is dark, gritty, bloody, and unapologetic. It’s also engrossing, evoking emotions I don’t normally feel while watching Grimm. I was ready to hurt someone and I’m still feeling antsy after all is said and done. “Wesenrein” picks up with Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch) screaming as she stares at her transformation. We also continue with the story line of Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) being kidnapped right in front of his house.
