Bates Motel Says Goodbye to Norma Louise in “Norman”

“I’ll Be Home For Christmas” is a wistful holiday tune, and the key phrase as it concludes is, “if only in my dreams.” I think that’s where we’ll find most of the action going forward on Bates Motel, because they went there.

4 Moments of Goodness from The Vampire Diaries Season 7 Finale

This has been a pretty uneven season for The CW’s The Vampire Diaries, yet I had high hopes for the Season 7 finale. I’m sure you did, too. While it wasn’t the best season ender or cliffhanger in the history of the show, it did get me a little excited for […]

Relationships Are Complicated in Penny Dreadful “Predators Far and Near”

Vanessa Ives has sh-t luck with men. We know this. So it seems all well and good when Dr. Seward encourages her to step out of her comfort zone, which sends her off to the local museum, and she meets the lovely, awkward, and shy zoologist Dr. Sweet. You had to […]

All Roads Lead to Jennifer in 12 Monkeys “Primary”

A common through line this season will be that Jennifer has a bead on every timeline, and we started to get a sense of just how overwhelming that is for her in “Primary.” We also found out that Olivia was a master manipulator, not just playing on Jennifer’s mommy and […]

3 Moments of Goodness from Game of Thrones “The Red Woman”

The season six premiere of Game of Thrones wasted no time giving status updates on virtually all of the cast of characters (except Bran. Eleven episodes with no mention of magical flame-throwing children.) But from all the flitting from North to South and East to West, there were three Moments […]

Norma Admits Her Truth to Romero in Bates Motel “The Vault”

Hey there. So, I’m going to barrel clumsily into this and hopefully come out the other side with a coherent point. I haven’t been wholly down with this season of Bates Motel so far, partly because by putting Norman into treatment, they’ve split his arc away from Norma’s, creating two […]

Romancing the Bro in 12 Monkeys “Year of the Monkey”

One of the things that’s hard about PR/marketing is gauging the timing of the reveal. I do that in my day job, so I totally get it, but when it comes to fandom, I sort of wish there was a way to table reveals while still building interest. Case in […]

It finally happened TVD fans, we have finally reached the point in the season where they are going to flash fully forward to three years in the future. This time jump still left many unanswered questions, which I will get to but this episode was about one thing. And that […]

Five Moments of Goodness From Black Sails “XXV”

There’s good TV, and then there’s TV that provides a sort of vindication and relief you didn’t even think you needed. Black Sails “XXV” is the latter, and is the best episode of the season to date. While the entire hour is worth your time once or twice over, here […]
