Cast: Karl Urban, Michael Ealy, Minka Kelly, Lili Taylor, Mackenzie Crook Writer: J.H. Wyman Director: Brad Anderson Network: Airs on Fox, Mondays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Nov. 17, 2013 ALMOST HUMAN plays very much like a modern BLADE RUNNER in a variety of ways. It is the future where man and machine are intertwined like never before. There are synthetics that exist in our daily lives – this time, however, as part of the police force rather than outlaws. Crime is at an all time high. There is a blend of cultures on the streets. The drama doesn’t play […]Read On »

August Richards Writer: Brent Fletcher Director: Jesse Bochco Network: Airs on ABC, Tuesdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Oct. 22, 2013 Now this is what we have been waiting for from MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD. A dude with a nasty fire power, secrets, revelations, a deeper subplot into the anti-SHIELD organization known as Centipede all wrapped in a pretty good episode called “Girl in the Flower Dress.” The girl happens to be a nasty piece of work that’s all pretty on […]Read On »

Unfortunately, “Eye-Spy” didn’t do the show many favors in terms of going up after a pretty decent episode last week.

Cast: James Spader, Megan Boone, Ryan Eggold, Harry Lennix, Diego Klattenhoff, Parminder Nagra Writer: Patrick Massett, John Zinman Director: Jace Alexander Network: Airs on NBC, Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: Oct. 14, 2013 Last week’s episode of THE BLACKLIST gave us some much-needed intel into what’s going on in the overall mythology of the show. We learned that Raymond Reddington (James Spader) has connections to Elizabeth Keen’s (Megan Boone) father but he isn’t saying how at this point. I speculated that this might be the case or even that he might be her father but it could also just […]Read On »

August Richards Writer: Jed Whedon, Maurissa Tancharoen Director: Milan Cheylov Network: Airs on ABC, Tuesdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Oct. 8, 2013 The third episode of MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD was all about Skye (Chloe Bennet) and her contribution to a team of trained professionals with all a certain skill set.

August Richards Writer: Jeffery Bell, Jed Whedon, Maurissa Tancharoen Director: David Straiton Network: Airs on ABC, Tuesdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Oct. 1, 2013 The second episode of MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD was a bit of a disappointment. After a really good opening episode full of interesting subplots and witty banter, this played out more like a straight laced action black ops mission – something that we’d see on numerous other shows on numerous other networks. I was aware that […]Read On »

Kelley Director: Jason Winer Network: CBS, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: September 26, 2013 There’s something fresh and exciting about the new CBS comedy THE CRAZY ONES.
