Under the Dome 2×04 ‘Revelation’ : Playing God
This week’s episode is split pretty evenly between discovering the mystery of Melanie, and saving the town from starvation. That second storyline turns out to be the more interesting one, mostly because it’s disturbing as heck. As for throwing in a murdered girl and a possible time warp…it just seems like too much.

The Fosters 2×05 “Mother”: Frankie.
Finally it’s all about Lena – usually Lena is there to pick everybody else up or to deal with somebody else’s problems. I think her deterioration was a long time coming but I didn’t expect it to go down like it did…Read the rest at gottawatchit.com…

The Leftovers 1×04 ‘B.J. and the A.C.’: The pain of isolation
How do we navigate loss?  Are we supposed to bathe in it until it feels okay?  Are we supposed to avoid it in order to keep our heads above water?  Or are we supposed to lean on others for support until we can stand on our own?  We’re never really taught how to recover from loss, but we all operate under the impression that we have some answer that keeps us sane.

The Strain 1×01/1×02 ‘Night Zero/The Box’: Scary vampires. Scarier wig.
The Strain opens with a plane full of passengers descending upon New York City. As the plane heads down to the landing strip, something breaks out of the cargo hold and… we fade to black. Whatever it was, it cut off communications with the airport control tower and killed almost everyone on the plane. Almost everyone, but four. Now a CDC team, Holocaust survivor turned Harlem pawnbroker, a street level thug, and an exterminator, all begin to cross paths for different reasons but everything leads back to… The Strain.

The Last Ship 1×05 ‘El Toro’: A world worth saving
My biggest criticism for The Last Ship is that it hasn’t been connecting to the viewer emotionally. Well this week, I got what I asked for. Was it cliched? Yes. Was it emotionally manipulative? Yes. Did it work? Yes. Read the rest at gottawatchit.com…

Halt and Catch Fire 1×08 ‘The 214s’: Chasing dreams
It’s fascinating how television shows can bounce back from a string of terrible episodes.  Audiences tend to have a short memory span, where a show can produce an absolutely awful episode of television, but a great new episode can erase the bad taste of that awful entry.

Bingeworthy: The Sopranos 1×10-1×11: Caged within definition
Before I dive in, let’s get one thing out of the way.  “A Hit is a Hit” is, by far, the worst episode of Season 1 of The Sopranos.  The story reeks of writing that’s trying to be gritty for the sake of being gritty.  The gangster rap story tries to capitalize on a current trend that feels outdated, even for 1999.  And, juxtaposed with Tony’s interactions with Dr. Cusamano, it just looks even worse.

Reckless 1×04 ‘Blind Sides’: Betrayal and more betrayal.
Well this week it would appear that we have another lukewarm filler episode to pass the time. Admittedly the story was slightly more interesting than last week, but it was still pretty weak. There were some important developments this episode however, and yet another cliff hanger ending. I’m hoping by next week we will start getting into the meat and potatoes of the police department conspiracy storyline. Read the rest at gottawatchit.com…

Graceland 2×05 ‘H-A-Double-P-Y’: The fate of their love
Graceland operates fantastically last week, with every character’s story working in concurrence to show how they try so intently to deal with the problems in their life, only to still feel the weight at the end of the day.  “H-A-Double-P-Y” doesn’t quite work on that level, as some of the stories aren’t quite compelling enough to land like they should, but it’s still a decent enough entry in a season that’s turning out to be way better than the first.

Young & Hungry 1×04 ‘Young & Pregnant’ : Your boxes always get you in trouble
Here it is, the pregnancy scare episode. If you’ve ever watched a sitcom in your life, you saw this coming as soon as Gabbi and Josh slept together. So as usual with this show, no points for originality. The question then is, was this tried and true plotline done in a way that was funny?  If there’s a moral of this tale, it’s this: condoms rule.

So this week on The Fosters each and every family member tackles, creates and reflects upon their secrets. Unsurprisingly there are a lot of secrets that reside within the Foster household.

Under the Dome 2×03 ‘Force Majeure’ : Bleeding in the rain
Oh boy. If you’re a fan of intelligent characters making solid decisions, beware this episode. Seriously, the plot is almost entirely overshadowed by the God-awful characterization. Actually, the plot is defined by the God-awful characterization, which is worse. Read the rest at gottawatchit.com…
