Senior Writer/Columnist: Heather began writing about TV way back when Jensen Ackles was Alec on Dark Angel (so, "dibs.") EDITOR NOTE: No dibs!. She never got on the reality bandwagon. Instead, her TV viewing must be scripted. She's intensely loyal to actors, writers, and directors and loves comedy, drama, suspense, and sci-fi equally. If it was filmed in Vancouver (or Canada, really), she's going to be all over it. Don't look for snark. If she's made the time to watch it, she likes it (or loves it), because life's too short to watch sh-tty TV. But she will call BS when it's right there for the taking. By day, she writes marketing communications for the IT sector. She's a lifelong Texan (minus the pre-K years), so you'll have to accept the liberal use of "y'all." You can follow her on Twitter and Instagram at @approximofnice.

Hawaii Five-0 “Ke Kinohi (The Beginning)”

It was family night this week on Hawaii Five-0as the Yakuza seriously misjudge the lengths McGarrett will go to to avenge his mother and protect his sister. Game on, y’all. We begin at Casa McGarrett with a sleeping McGarrett startled awake by someone downstairs. He draws on a masked burglar […]

Human Target “The Other Side of the Mall”

I keep a lot of TV and movie clutter in my head, so I immediately twigged to “all the action’s on the other side of the mall” as a nod to Fast Times at Ridgemont High, and then I was alarmed to realize 28-year old trivia can bounce out of […]

TV Goodness All-Star 2010: Donal Logue, Terriers

I bring you number four of the top five TV All-Stars for 2010 who gave me a happy this year (in no particular order). Donal Logue R.I.P, Terriers. FX pulled the plug on this gem barely a week after the finale aired, which gets a big L for dumbass move. Prior to […]

Human Target “Dead Head”

Forgive me or straggling, y’all. I’m catching up now. In “Dead Head,” the Human Target episode from December 15th, the whole gang is along for the outing when a potential new client is rescued from a car bomb by Winston and Chance. They were waiting to meet him at an […]

TV Goodness All-Star 2010: Alex O’Loughlin, Hawaii Five-0

Alex O’Loughlin I wrote a little bit about the “neener, neener Nina Tassler” aspect of the success of Hawaii Five-0 when the show was picked up for a full season. This item is just to give a booyah shout-out to O’Loughlin for literally waiting out his next opportunity. He didn’t […]

TV Goodness All-Star 2010: Jackie Earle Haley, Human Target

2010 was a hodgepodge of new shows across every genre, but the trifecta of sci-fi, character dramas, and action-based dramedies was where my bread was buttered this year. If you read my reviews (thank you!), this isn’t a surprise. My 2010 All-Stars shouldn’t be much of one, either. I give you the […]

TV Goodness All-Star 2010: Timothy Olyphant, Justified

As we close out the year, TV Goodness is taking the time to give a nod to our Rock Stars of 2010. We had a hodgepodge of new shows across every genre, but the trifecta of sci-fi, character dramas, and action-based dramedies was where my bread was buttered this year. If you read […]

TV Goodness All-Star 2010: Piper Perabo, Covert Affairs

The last of my top five TV all-stars who gave me a happy in 2010, is Piper Perabo. When Covert Affairs debuted this summer, it was in cookie-cutter lockstep with the USA Network family. The network’s second female-driven drama, behind In Plain Sight, Covert Affairs took off, and on the heels of […]

Hawaii Five-0: “Hana ‘a’a Makehewa (Desperate Measures)”

One of my oldest and dearest friends used to genuinely fret over The X-Fileswhen they would imperil Mulder and Scully, so it became a running decade-long joke about “Oh my God, they’re gonna kill ____.” So, when we began this Christmas episode of H50with a bomb strapped to the neck […]

The Vampire Diaries “By the Light of the Moon”

I know I said this last week, but in the space of six months, I marvel at how quickly I’ve cared less about the Salvatores and Elenagate and more about Tyler and Caroline and the peripheral characters. Seriously, people. There were other people in this episode and it was a […]
