Moment of Goodness: Jane Goes Psychic to Try and Save His Friend on The Mentalist

“The Blood on his Hands” ended up being another stellar hour of The Mentalist primarily because it continued the Red John saga. Malcolm McDowell returned in this episode to portray the cult leader, Bret Stiles, who slightly bested Jane the last time they met. He was definitely a formidable adversary for Jane. We […]

Moment of Goodness: Catching Up on Bones

I’m trying to catch up on the considerable amount (85 hours. How did that happen? Some of it might be leftovers from summer…) of television on my DVR. In an effort to make sure to hit some of the highlights, I’ve chosen two moments of goodness from the last two […]

Safe Haven: Syfy Renews Haven

Every now and again, Syfy will launch a new series with a reasonable amount of fanfare and then sort of back way off of it and you’re not sure if it’s a budget thing or a ratings thing or some nebulous behind-the-scenes drama and then your show just goes away […]

Deja View: Life Unexpected’s Emma Caulfield

Let me start off with an admission: I’m not fully up-to-date on Life Unexpected. But I don’t have to be to discuss the lovely and wonderful Emma Caulfield In the episode I watched last night “Parents Unemployed,” we meet a somewhat uptight and extremely disapproving Emma Bradshaw. Baz’s father sets […]

Moment of Goodness: New Characters Add New Life to Desperate Housewives

I bailed out of appointment TV viewing of Desperate Housewives a few years ago, and was especially appalled when they had Mike overly-cruelly dismiss Katherine last season after he reconciled with Susan, but I happened across the show the other night and was pleasantly surprised by a couple of the […]

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 […]

Moment of Goodness: The Good Wife’s Will and Alicia at a Court Martial

Their dynamic continues to fascinate me. Alicia feels that there is still something between them – even though Will is giving her almost no reason to hope – and she can’t let it go. I’m sure Will is regretting telling Alicia he loves her (well, her cell phone) since she […]

Glee’s Moment of Goodness: Kurt’s “You had me at Church” Hat

There were a lot of great moments in tonight’s episode and I will admit to crying at least four separate times. I’m not ashamed. And if anyone ever thought Chris Colfer’s Emmy nomination was a fluke (not me) I think he just proved again tonight why he deserved it (yeah, haters!). I’ve […]

Moment of Goodness: Jane Confronts His Past on The Mentalist

After a rather so-so Season 3 premiere, the second episode rebounded big time. Whenever they focus on Jane’s past, it’s always the best. When they first brought his past up, Jane seemed almost ashamed to talk about it; but when he had to go back to his original carnival in “Cackle-Bladder […]

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 […]
