NOTE: The following post might contain spoilers from The Americans, Chuck, Nikita, Parks and Recreation, Revenge, and Scandal.
After the season finale of The Americans aired, celebrated critic Alan Sepinwall posted his review where his praises were high but his response to the episode’s casual nature was lukewarm at best. He’s not the only one who may have been letdown from the show’s quiet take at a season finale; several people in that comments section felt the same, and others reviewing and recapping it around the Internet may have as well.… Read more →

Just a short review…
Well, that was a pretty good two hours of Revenge, wasn’t it? It’s as if those in charge have been listening to everyone’s complaints and decided to pack it into the final moments of Revenge’s sophomore season. As we’ve all pointed out, Revenge hasn’t truly been itself this season, getting muddled up in tangents and The Initiative and Padma and so on.… Read more →

Just a really quick review…
It’s March and I’m finally not as busy… which means that I actually will start reviewing things again! In the case of Revenge, our previous recapper had other responsibilities, so I figured that I should come in and check in on last season’s breakout hit.
During the show’s second season, plenty of people had been criticizing it for not exactly feeling as it did in season one.… Read more →

Yay, welcome back, Revenge! The holidays nice and all, but why do my shows have to go on hiatus? There are only so many things to decorate and cookies to eat before you want to sit down to some pretty people exacting cold hard vengeance. Hope everyone had relaxing and relatively scandal-free holiday break.
When we left off before the break, Emily and Aiden had hooked up and were making out on a regular basis, and that very agreeable trend has continued this week.… Read more →

“If we choose to, we can live in a world of comforting illusion. We can allow ourselves to be deceived by false realities. Or we can use them to hide our true intentions.”
From the first line of Emily’s opening monologue I knew this was going to be a badass episode. I mean, come on, how perfect is this theme?… Read more →

So it seems like Emily is still trying really hard to come off as a hard-ass bitch despite the fact that she is pretty much an emotional train wreck right now. Before this season, if you had told me that Emily can cry I would have laughed and told you that her tear ducts dried out years ago.… Read more →

This week we see the culmination of all the harm Emily’s vendetta is doing to Amanda’s would-be normal life; Daniel starts getting a little sneakier and a little smarter; the mystery man Declan robbed becomes more mysterious; Nolan starts an adorkable relationship (thank you Zooey Deschanel for the existence of that term); and we learn some pretty terrible things about Emily’s mother.… Read more →

Another Sunday, another scandal in the Hamptons. Tensions are high(er than usual) in Grayson Manor, Emily’s old flame is in the picture, Declan is now officially a hoodlum, and a cute and relatively normal person is crushing on Nolan.
Hello, sexy British ninja.
This was a very flashbacky episode, giving us a peek into the history between Emily and Aiden that was apparent in ep 1.… Read more →

This episode opens with a creepy as shit nightmare of Amanda hanging out with her mom until her mom morphs into Victoria. Unsettling! Both women are presumed dead and both will be resurrected in this season. I see what you did there, show!
Having successfully faked her death, Victoria wants to take Charlotte (and her inheritance money) and get the hell out of dodge.… Read more →

How sweet it is to have Emily’s stunning red dresses, Victoria’s backstabbing bitchiness, and Nolan’s snappy one-liners back on my TV screen. Revenge returned Sunday night with a thrilling hour of trademark drama and intrigue. The episode opened by panning over bits of wreckage in the ocean not from Victoria’s plane, but instead Jack’s boat. Similar to the beginning of last season, this is a glimpse three months into the future, although considerably more vague than Daniel getting shot at his engagement party.… Read more →
