Moment(s) of Goodness: The Entire “Basic Rocket Science” Episode of Community

There are no words that can adequately express the sheer awesomeness of this week’s Community. It’s impossible to highlight just one lone memorable Moment of Goodness; there are a million of them. Consider Greendale’s quest to enter the world of flight simulation one great big ball of goodness. Some of the hilarity […]

Undercovers “Jailbreak”

I’m definitely a huge fan of Undercovers. I want it to succeed. I hate the ratings slide that has been occurring every week since the show first debuted. And I’ve really liked all the episodes I’ve watched so far. Here’s the thing. I really want the mystery of the show […]

NCIS “Royals and Loyals”

Solid episode of NCIS this week even though Di-Nosy did make an appearance or two. That’s okay. McGee helped Ziva get the best of Tony with a high tech security alarm he rigged up on her computer to catch Tony in the act of breaking into her email. It’s funny how […]

Character Development: Detective Kate Beckett, Castle in “Under the Gun”

In last week’s Castle, Beckett had to deal with a major betrayal. Mike Royce was the cop who trained her but he had subsequently quit the force and become a bounty hunter. His presence in Beckett and Castle’s latest case wasn’t a coincidence. Royce’s greed took over and things ended […]

Castle’s Two Moments of Goodness: Castle Comforts Mom and Challenges Daughter

I finally watched the last two episodes of Castle and as usual, they were solid hours of entertainment. Much is said and written about the chemistry between Castle and Beckett. The two extremely sexy investigators are meant to be together and I’m just waiting for that moment to happen. I […]

Moment of Goodness: Gibbs & Fornell – NCIS’ Odd (and Cranky) Couple

In an episode that featured Tony’s quest to become the cover boy for an NCIS recruitment magazine; Tony’s cardboard cutout getting Gibbs-slapped; and Abby referring to Dr. Donald “Ducky” Mallard’s autopsy lab as “the Duck pond;” the standout scenes in “Short Fuse” actually had to do with cranky pals Gibbs […]

Hellcats “Nobody Loves Me But My Mother”

Good episode. My favorite part had to be the Dan and Savannah portion of the program. I’m digging every time Savannah’s family is part of the action because it gives her more depth. With the way she constantly acts so perky and optimistic, sometimes it seems like there’s not much […]

My Six Favorite Stephen J. Cannell TV Shows

It was announced that Stephen J. Cannell passed away Thursday night due to complications associated with melanoma. The prolific producer was responsible for so much TV Goodness especially in the 70s, 80s and 90s. His shows were campy fun and sometimes a little cheesy but they were also extremely entertaining and […]

Dear Show: A Letter to the Producers of the CW’s Nikita

Dear Show: Thank you, thank you, thank you for casting Russell Wong in this week’s episode of Nikita called “Rough Trade.” At first I didn’t recognize him as Nikita’s first “kill.” But once I did I was beyond happy. It got even better once it was revealed that his character […]

Moment of Goodness: Jennifer Love Hewitt on Law & Order: SVU

This morning I saw a Cheers & Jeers article on TVGuide.com about how great a job Jennifer Love Hewitt did on Law & Order: SVU. She played a rape victim that Detective Olivia Benson was trying to help. J-Love’s Vicki Sayers had been raped four times over the course of fifteen […]
