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.

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 […]

The Vampire Diaries “Katerina”

“Katerina” celebrated “Take Nina Dobrev to Work Day,” as she handled about more than half of the screen time (much of it talking to herself) all on her own. First, who sat out this episode: Alaric (except in previews), Tyler, Jenna, Matt, and Liz.

Hawaii Five-0 “Mana’o (Belief)”

Scott Caan gets a showcase episode with “”Mana’o (Belief)”, which focuses on Danny’s attempt to clear the name of his former partner, Hanamoa, whose charred corpse is discovered at a Luau at the beginning of the episode. Working the case puts Kelly right in the path of one of the […]

The Vampire Diaries “Rose”

Holy crap with the longing looks. We have some interesting pair-offs this week. First: no Matt, Jenna, Alaric, Katherine or Liz tonight. Aimee is still “missing.” Sarah is still dead. The basic gist of the hour is that Elena has been kidnapped (again) and Team Scooby (Bonnie, Jeremy, Stefan, and […]

Moment of Goodness: Hank Tells It Like It Is on Terriers

If you’re not watching Terriers (and WHY?), please allow me to direct you to a gem of a moment of goodness at the end of last week’s episode, “Agua Caliente,” which found Hank on the receiving end of a bullet when he jumped into the fray to save Katie, who’s not his […]

Hawaii Five-0: “Ho’apono (Accept)”

Alex O’ Loughlin and Adam Beach go mano a mano this week. Sadly, only O’Loughlin is shirtless (foiled!) The episode centers on McGarrett getting onto the USS Missouri to talk down Graham Wilson (Beach), a former Navy SEAL accused of murdering his wife, who has taken tourists on the ship […]

The Vampire Diaries “Masquerade”

Okay, I’m not going to be popular, but I didn’t love this episode, mainly because at the end of the way overlong buildup, Katherine is still alive. There was plenty of momentum in trying to get her dead, in a charming Team Scooby-esque (Damon/Stefan/Alaric/Bonnie/Caroline/Jeremy) sort of way, but in the end, […]

Hawaii Five-0 “Ko’olauloa (North Shore of O’ahu)”

Kono gets a front-and-center arc this week when her surfing mentor and second dad (who covered her medical expenses when she blew out her knee), Ian Adams, is felled by a bullet to the chest during an exhibition surf. The suspects include Kevin Sorbo (ding ding ding) as Carlton Bass, […]

Renewals A Go-Go at CBS and CW

WARNING: THIS STORY WAS WRITTEN IN 2011. Ah, Nina (Tassler). Way to save face after the supreme goof of canning Moonlight in the spring of 08. Three Rivers was a bust, but she kept on, and thankfully Alex O’Loughlin is a savvy guy who stayed in the CBS fold, and […]
