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 “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 […]

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 […]
