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.

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 […]

Human Target “The Return of Baptiste”

Four for four. Score! Baptiste (Lennie James) makes a welcome return to Human Target this week, when, against his better judgment, and over the objections of Guerrero and Winston, who are horrified to agree with each other, Chance fetches him from a Siberian prison to help get Ilsa’s childhood friend, […]

Hawaii Five-0 “Palekaiko (Paradise)”

The 5-0s track a honeymoon killer a la A Perfect Getaway this week; we do NOT, however, get a shirtless Timothy Olyphant alongside a shirtless Alex O’Loughlin, and somebody decided that Daniel Dae Kim was too pretty, so he had to wear a wetsuit. Boooo. We get some tangential family […]

Christmas TV Goodness

If you don’t partake of Christmas movies, you’re going to need to break out your DVD sets or clear your DVR, because they’re all over cable TV this month. The networks don’t hit it as hard—you can still catch your Snoopy and Shrek—but they’ve handed the movies-of-the-week heavy lifting off […]

The Vampire Diaries “The Sacrifice”

We’re almost halfway through this season already. Boooo! It was Die Hard: Mystic Falls/Richmond on the CW Thursday as almost everyone’s fatalistic tendencies moved front and center. No Mama Forbes, but pretty much the rest of the cast got to play. We get the previouslies that catch us up on the moonstone and […]

Human Target “Taking Ames”

This week the boys (and Ilsa) have to rally to get Ames’s ass out of a sling when she agrees to help her oldest friend/brother figure, Brody, pull one last con/heist. Chance and Guerrero are heading toward benefit of the doubt while Winston and Ilsa are of the “cut her […]

Human Target “The Wife’s Tale”

Well I’m happy to report we’re two for two for Human Target not sucking in its second season. Yay, team! “The Wife’s Tale” works out the new team dynamic as Chance take on a protection case that’s an attempt at redemption for a hit he carried out seven years ago. […]

Hawaii Five-0 “Heihei (Race)”

Now y’all know I love me some Alex O’Loughlin, but I came to the startling realization in this episode that boyfriend is skinny. We open with him wearing a wifebeater while trying to put his house back together and all I could think was that the boy needs mashed potatoes! […]

Human Target “Ilsa Pucci”

I loved the first season of Human Target a ridiculous amount. When it was renewed, I was excited because finally FUX (misspelled on purpose) hadn’t cancelled a show I took a chance (punny!) on. Then I read that they were bringing in a new co-EP, changing the music, and adding […]

Hawaii Five-0 “Po’ipu (The Siege)”

Well it was an “all hands” kinds of week on Hawaii Five-0, where everybody got to be in on the case in pretty much equal measure. Awesome. The only hitch was some weird use/misuse of the guest cast. They brought in the saucy and stunning Emmanuelle Vaugier, had her strip […]
