Stars: Emily VanCamp, Madeleine Stowe, Henry Czerny, Josh Bowman, Nick Wechsler, Gabriel Mann, Ashley Madekwe, Christa B. Allen, Connor Paolo Writer: Mark Fish & Joe Fazzio Director: Sanford Bookstaver Network: ABC, Wednesday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: February 15, 2012 The episode “Chaos” is perhaps the most aptly titled episode of REVENGE yet – there is so much going on, and it all ties into what we all came here to see, namely the shooting at the beginning of the season, which also starts the episode. And, oh, yes, there is one humdinger of a surprise twist at the end. More cynical minds might suggest we could have seen this coming. I totally …Read On »

Stars: Lucy Lawless, Liam McIntyre, Manu Bennett, Peter Mensah, Viva Bianca, Craig Parker Writer: Tracy Bellomo, Created by Steven S. DeKnight Director: Brendan Mehr   Network: STARZ, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: February 10, 2012 The last two episodes of SPARTACUS: VENGEANCE have moved kind of slowly. Yes, there has been plenty of violence and sex, but without a main storyline of action to move them; it just becomes an explicitly painted canvas to look at. Now with “The Greater Good” the storyline jumps into overdrive and ends with what could easily be classified as a cliffhanger. The season gets more …Read On »

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Feb. 16, 2012 I was amused after the final round of “Hollywood Week” on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, over how excited people were to go to Las Vegas. Yeah, I guess the excitement of moving along is one thing, but it’s not like they are going to some great place where they can all do something fun. Half of the people are under 21 and that means no gambling. And as I said before, you can get …Read On »

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Caroline Dries, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: Chris Grismer  Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: February 9, 2012 THE VAMPIRE DIARIES is making the storyline involving Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and his original vampire family at least interesting to watch. I was concerned initially at the start of the season when they brought Klaus back. Bringing back a villain from a previous season seemed weak sauce compared to how they had leveled up between prior seasons of the show. However, I have been pleasantly surprised with all of …Read On »

TV Review: AMERICAN IDOL – Season 11 – “Hollywood Round, Part 3”

AMERICAN IDOL Season 11 Hollywood Round Part 3 | © 2012 Fox

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Feb. 15, 2012 Seacrest last week said that this final round of “Hollywood Week” on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, would be the “most drama ever” – yes, taking a page out of THE BACHELOR’s book o’ promotions. Well, it was dramarific for sure with the culmination of the dreaded group night where every year singers crash and burn under the pressure, the rehearsal and having to work with others. And to no one’s surprise it was full …Read On »

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: Ali Adler Director: Brad Falchuk Network: Fox, airs Tuesday nights Original Telecast: February 14, 2012 Ugh! For a show titled “Heart,” there was little of it in another frustratingly bad episode of GLEE. As we await Nationals, the series has been treading water, trying to find focus after a string of exceptional episodes in the fall. There also seems to be a disingenuous attempt to find out …Read On »

The bad thing about “Addicted to Love” is that the plotlines are so far entirely separate, to the point where BEING HUMAN feels more …Read On »
