How many times does a TV series comes across you have never heard and found it amazing? This summer I came across one show that aired 23 years ago.
First of all, I need to rejoice. Last night’s episode was a difficult one to watch, but for all the right reasons! Having had an in-law with Alzheimer’s, this episode struck close to home.… More “Law and Order: SVU (S19E22) “Mama””
Sometimes in life, there are no good choices and SVU had 2 situations that dealt with that reality on last night’s episode.
First off, the best part (although not a happy one) of the episode was Peter Stone (Philip Winchester) having to make a choice about his sister’s medication.… More “Law and Order: SVU (S19E19) "Sunk Cost Fallacy"”
Last night’s Gotham was stunning, I can’t say enough for the writers that they’re able to cram so much into a single episode without leaving the viewer overwhelmed and confused.… More “Gotham (S04E18) "That’s Entertainment"”
I’m really struggling with last night’s SVU. The premise was fine but overused, and the one highlight and beautiful moment of the night was held until the final 2 minutes of the episode.… More “Law and Order: SVU (S19E18) "Service"”
Gotham is always bananas, but these days it’s a full-on circus. The amount of bad guys in this town, in each episode, has become truly mind-blowing. And with Jerome back on the town – nothing is out of the realm of possibility.… More “Gotham – Character Catch Up”
Last night’s episode was weird in all the best ways. It was such a classic SVU, and thankfully not quite as heartbreaking as the last few weeks have been. Well, unless you count the revelation that our favorite ADA Peter Stone (Philip Winchester) has an ill family member that he visits regularly.… More “Law and Order:SVU (S19E17) "Send in the Clowns"”
Last night’s HTGAWM was all about second chances. Some found and some lost – overall it felt happy, joyful even at times, unusual for this show. Which of course means it’ll all come crashing down next season.… More “How to Get Away With Murder (S04E15) "Nobody Else is Dying"”
Addressing current issues is something that SVU excels at and last night was no exception. Looking at the current state of organ donations here vs that in Europe makes a compelling case for presumed consent, at least to this writer.… More “Law and Order: SVU (S19E16) "Dare"”
In this Dominick Carisi (Peter Scanavino) centered episode, SVU examines the realities of investigating and prosecuting the complicated sex crimes that are reported on college campuses.… More “Law and Order: SVU (S19E15)"In Loco Parentis"”
First off let me say that as a white woman I feel inadequate at best to review last night’s epic Scandal/How to Get Away With Murder episodes. With a searing commentary on the criminal justice system and how racism is, as Annalise Keating (Viola Davis) says, “built into the DNA of our country” these episodes were hard-hitting and truly beautiful to watch.… More “How to Get Away With Scandal (S04E13) "Lahey v. Commonwealth of Pennsylvania"”
Last night’s episode was a perfect look at new ADA Peter Stone (Philip Winchester) and what his relationship with the team is going to be. Rough is probably an understatement at this point.… More “Law and Order: SVU (S19E14) "Chasing Demons"”
Last night’s episode was packed with lots of information – and a double dose of bad fathers. We pick up directly at the end of last week’s episode, with Laurel having identified the number calling Dominic.… More “How to Get Away With Murder (S04E11) "He’s a Bad Father"”
Last night’s SVU was hard to watch. It was tough in an unusual way for this show, generally, I’d say that about an episode which showed a lot of violence, or dealt with children.… More “Law and order: SVU "Info Wars" (S19E12)”
The midseason premiere could have been titled “Revelations and Tears” because it was chock full of both. If you remember, at the end of the fall we were left with blood everywhere – on Annalise as she’s trying to save Laurel’s baby, on Laurel as she lays bleeding out on the floor, on Simon after he shot himself, and on MacKayla after getting sprayed by Simon’s blood.… More “How to Get Away With Murder (S04E09) "He’s Dead"”
