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.

Cheesy Goodness: Haven tidbits

We’ve got a few months before Haven‘s second season starts on Syfy, but I come bearing gifts! First, Jason Priestley has signed on for a four-episode arc and will direct an episode. Sightly spoily info is here, courtesy of TVline. Second, Perfect Plan, a deliciously cheesy Canadian TV movie that […]

Justified “Cottonmouth”

Well, the slow pace of the Bennett ramp-up jumped into hyperdrive with this week’s outing, as Raylan heads home to investigate why, how, and by whom Loretta’s daddy’s government checks are being cashed. We begin with Dewey Crowe being dragged out of his cell under the guise of a quarantine […]

Justified “For Blood or Money”

As Kara excellently covered, it’s relationship a-go-go in Harlan as all the key players mix and mingle. “For Blood or Money” is a bit of a misnomer title for this episode, because money comes into play as an afterthought while more seeds are planted for the bigger picture.

Hawaii Five-0 “Loa Aloha (The Long Goodbye)”

Catching up, y’all. Thanks for waiting! So, the stunt casting of Dane Cook as Danny’s brother did NOT suck. Shock me, shock me. shock me. I did, however, want to see Danny nut up and wing him to keep him safe, but alas, then we couldn’t have him come back […]

Justified “The I of the Storm”

So, the Comcast upgrade to Xfinity’s onscreen programming guide on Monday deleted everything I’d taped since October—every episode of H50, Human Target, Justified, The Vampire Diaries, Primeval, Supernatural, and Fairly Legal, plus a handful of cheesy Hallmark/Lifetime/Syfy movie, which is a roundabout way of saying I’m going to recap this […]

The Vampire Diaries “The House Guest”

Bad show. Bad! No biscuit! Oh my, y’all. I didn’t start this episode knowing it was the last before the spring hiatus but the penny dropped about halfway through it when there was so! much! going! on! Just a heads up, this is going to be wordy.

Justified “The Life Inside”

Last week’s episode was a pretty straightforward “find the escaped prisoner” tale with the added twist that said prisoner was extremely pregnant and actually in danger. On the drug runner front, Mags takes in Loretta. Raylan goes home to tangle with his dad, dances around whatever he and Winona are doing, […]

Hawaii Five-0 “Powa Maka Moana (Pirate)”

Well, stunt casting didn’t serve the story with last week’s outing about a kidnapped pleasure cruise of 12 college kids during Spring Break. As the CBS promo monkeys were happy to sound out, this week’s guesters were Vanessa Minnillo and Nick Lachey (and also Ray Wise and Stacey Edwards, who weren’t […]

The Vampire Diaries “The Dinner Party”

I don’t partake of spoilers so I genuinely have no clue what’s coming on The Vampire Diaries, and most of the time, that makes the show more enjoyable when I watch it live. Especially so when folks I like pop up. Case in point—I was thrilled to see Arielle Kebbel […]

Human Target “Marshall Pucci”

I hope this is isn’t the last thing I ever write about Human Target, but if it is, thank you so much for reading my reviews. I hope they were as fun to read as they were to write.
