TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 15 – “The Poor Kid”

Kenny's parents get arrested for being White Trash on SOUTH PARK - Season 15 - "The Poor Kid" | ©2011 Comedy Central

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: November 16, 2011 Part of being a SOUTH PARK fan is loving it one week and hating it the next. With “The Poor Kid”, the episode lands somewhere in the middle. There are a few laughs, a couple clever sight gags, but it’s clear the end of the season has worn down creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone and the result is not a very satisfying episode. “The Poor Kid” focuses on Kenny and his siblings being sent to a foster home after his parents are …Read On »


TV Review: GLEE – Season 3 – “Mash Up”

Stars: Dianna Agron, Chris Colfer, Darren Criss, Jane Lynch, Jayma Mays, Kevin McHale, Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Heather Morris, Matthew Morrison, Amber Riley, Naya Rivera, Mark Salling, Harry Shum Jr., Jenna Ushkowitz Writer: Michael Hitchcock Director: Eric Stoltz Network: Fox, airs Tuesday nights Original Telecast: November 15, 2011 GLEE manages to stay on course with its latest episode “Mash Up” and by on course, I mean, not following up last week’s pretty good episode “The First Time” with a total suck-fest. “Mash Up” is anything but, even if the episode is a bit wobbly at times. The focus of the …Read On »

Stars: Rob Kardashian, Ricki Lake, J.R. Martinez, Hope Solo Network: ABC, airs Mondays, Tuesdays Original Telecast: Nov. 15th, 2011 No one was surprised tonight when high scores deprived struggling couple Hope Solo & Maksim Chmerkovskiy were booted off DANCING WITH THE STARS during Week 9 of Season 13. The judges had let them know with their low scores that they wanted them to go next and well, Solo and Chmerkovskiy “very” vocally acknowledged that this week. Chmerkovskiy’s angry words to and about the judges a couple of weeks ago pretty much sealed their fate. Plus, let’s face it, Solo was …Read On »


TV Review: ONCE UPON A TIME – Season 1 – “The Price of Gold”

Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Josh Dallas, Raphael Sbarge Writer: David H. Goodman Director: David Solomon Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: November 12, 2011 It’s always the innocuous stuff that goes past you on a show like ONCE UPON A TIME, but I suspect that even though the episode “The Price of Gold” is focusing on the parallel stories of Cinderella/Ashley Boyd (Jessy Schram) trying to keep her baby from Rumpelstiltskin/Mr. Gold (Robert Carlyle), the really significant question is whether Sheriff Graham (Jamie Dornan) is offering Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison) the deputy position in defiance of Mayor Regina Mills (Lana Parilla) …Read On »

Lee, David Zayas, James Remar, Aimee Garcia, Geoff Pierson, Edward James Olmos, Colin Hanks, Billy Brown, Christian Camargo, Molly Parker, Brando Eaton Writer: Wendy West, series based on the books by Jeff Lindsay Director: Romeo Tirone Network: Showtime, Sundays @ 9 PM Release Date: November 13, 2011 Thanks to a mixture of facts and mythology, including a Bruce Springsteen album using the state as a title, Nebraska has become famed for its bleakness and its production of serial killers. It therefore makes sense that DEXTER the show and Dexter …Read On »


TV Review: DANCING WITH THE STARS – Season 13 – Week 9 – “Relay Cha Cha Cha”

Stars: Rob Kardashian, Ricki Lake, J.R. Martinez, Hope Solo Network: ABC, airs Mondays, Tuesdays Original Telecast: November 14th, 2011 What a difference a week makes on DANCING WITH THE STARS! Last week J.R. Martinez and partner Karina Smirnoff were unstoppable, scoring two perfect scores. This week, not so much perfection, more like imperfections for the duo. Martinez injured his ankle and struggled throughout the entire night. His dancing, because of that, suffered severely. He placed third overall tonight behind the night’s highest scorers Ricki Lake & Derek Hough and Rob Kardashian & Cheryl Burke – who seem to be slowly …Read On »


TV Review: THE WALKING DEAD – Season 2 – “Chupacabra”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, D.J. Qualls, Emily Perkins, Mark A. Sheppard, Leslie Odom Jr. Writers: Andrew Dabb & Daniel Loflin, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Tim Andrew Network: The CW, Fridays @ 9 PM Original Telecast: November 4, 2011 This reviewer cannot pretend to be as much of a SUPERNATURAL fan as the character Becky Rosen (Emily Perkins), so the title of the episode doesn’t spring to mind, but “Season 7, Time for a Wedding!” feels as if it’s returning to familiar territory for this series, and not just because of its meta aspect. For those who don’t …Read On »


TV Review: FRINGE – Season 4 – “And Those We Left Behind”

Cast: Joshua Jackson, John Noble, Anna Torv, Seth Gabel, Lance Reddick, Jasika Nicole Writer: Robert Chiappetta & Glen Whitman Director: Brad Anderson Network: Fox, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: November 12, 2011 Outside of FUTURAMA, the FRINGE writing and producing team has to be the most intelligent science geeks the entertainment industry has ever assembled in one room. Put them together, and you could probably rule (or destroy) the world with the scientific theories and fringe science that’s explored on a weekly basis on either series. And in “And Those We Left Behind”, we get a very complicated episode about …Read On »


TV Review: CHUCK – Season 5 – “Vs. The Frosted Tips”

Stars: Zachary Levi, Yvonne Strahovski, Joshua Gomez, Adam Baldwin, Vik Sahay, Scott Krinsky, Mark Christopher Lawrence, Ryan McPartlin Writer: Phil Klemmer Director: Paul Marks Network: NBC, Friday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: November 11, 2011 I think it’s safe to say that among the CHUCK faithful, it’s pretty universally acknowledged that letting Morgan (Joshua Gomez) have the Intersect (basically all the CIA and NSA intelligence downloaded into the brain) was a massive, colossal mistake. And while last week’s episode seemed to cement that opinion with Morgan acting like a complete and total jerk, it did end with a tiny glimmer of hope that there might be something more …Read On »
