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 “E Malama (To Protect)”

Excuse the delay, kids. Tumblr ate my draft (no, really!) Last week’s episode switched things up a bit as Kelly was partnered with McGarrett, Danny went ever so slightly off kilter to protect Grace (and Rachel) while Kono ran point and awesomely told a killer’s attorney exactly what she thought […]

The Vampire Diaries “Crying Wolf”

Dear show: Love you, love your work, but would really love an episode where nobody was confined against their will and slapped around. Thanks so much. Love, Me. So much to break down, y’all, so let’s do it in pairs, shall we? Damon and his Hot Piece of Anchor are […]

Moment of Goodness (Yet to Come): Michael Rosenbaum on Smallville’s Series Finale

If I may quote the poetess, Pink, “Slam, slam, oh, hot damn!” YEAH, BABY! We heard tonight that Michael Rosenbaum will dust off the bald cap and return to the land of Lex. It’s about damn time, kind sir.

Justified “The Moonshine War”

Raylan’s back in the saddle for season two and the premiere picks up at the moment last season’s finale ended, with Raylan, Ava, and Boyd pinned down as the shooting subsides. Daddy Crowder lays lifeless outside so Raylan tells Boyd to get Ava to safety, and we presume he does, […]

Human Target “Kill Bob”

Excuse while I nerd out a minute about John Terlesky directing this episode. I remember him from my misbegotten 80s childhood in front of the TV. Ahem. Thank you. This first of the double run (the second one is the one I reviewed last week) is a fairly straightforward stop-the-spy-from-killing-her-husband […]

The Vampire Diaries “Daddy Issues”

Okay, I broke up with V for the torture porn, but when it happens on The Vampire Diaries, I get pissed off. Especially because I’m not terribly keen on Caroline continuing to be the kick me toy. I so wanted her to just completely bitch out when Tyler freed her, […]

Human Target “The Trouble with Harry”

Okay, so I’m going to make a liar out of myself and back off the no-ship opinion I had before, because, frankly, if Human Target rolls up the rug next week, I’m okay if Chance and Ilsa get together. I have a feeling we’re going to be a bit cliffhangery with […]

Hawaii Five-0 “Kai e’e (Tidal Wave)”

It’s a little sketchy to me to set an episode around a tsunami but I guess you work with what you got, and if it were set on the Gulf Coast, nobody’d sneeze about a hurricane, so there’s that. We begin early in the morning on an already-crowded beach, as […]

The Vampire Diaries “The Descent”

As my compadre, Tina Charles, has already expertly covered, The Vampire Diaries returned from its ridiculously long hiatus and promptly bade farewell to Rose. On top of that, we found out that Uncle Daddy is still around and Stefan reneged on his promise to kill him (booo) and poor Caroline […]

Gold Stars: One Tree Hill “The Drinks We Drank Last Night”

I came to One Tree Hill as a fan of the parental actors — Moira Kelly, Paul Johansson, and Craig Sheffer — but as the cast has rotated out over the years, the next generation of actors has come up and into their own. Sophia Bush has always been a strong link in […]
