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.

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 […]

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. […]
