BrainDead’s Fifth Episode Puts Everyone Back to Work

After a week of far-too-real-life politics in the news, it was a bit of a relief to tune into BrainDead where ridiculous political shenanigans are (mostly) the fault of alien brain-eating bugs. We pick up right where Episode 4 ended with Laurel and the adorable F.B.I. agent Anthony sharing some […]

The Americans: Ten Things I’m Thankful For

One of the things I probably enjoy most about FX is their fearless approach to storytelling. There are so many great shows on the network and at the very top of that list for me is The Americans. I never thought I’d root for two KGB agents, but it’s not […]

Kara’s TV Goodness All-Stars 2013: The Americans’ Keri Russell

Complex, well-written characters are my kryptonite. I love them, but they might eventually be the death of me. Hmm, that was dramatic. But I can’t get enough of damaged people. I can’t get enough of actors brining nuance and pathos and humanity to these roles. They make me suspend my […]

Fall TV Preview 2013: Showtime’s Masters of Sex [VIDEO and PHOTOS]

You had me at Lizzy Caplan. I think she’s a great actress and I love the choices she’s made in her career. And who can argue with such a titillating topic? I remember hearing about this show back when they were still in the casting stages. I – probably like […]

2011’s Most Memorable Episodes: Justified “Brother’s Keeper”

It was a bit difficult to decide which episode to pick as my favorite from Justified‘s stellar sophomore season. I decided to go with “Brother’s Keeper” for a number of reasons: Carol Johnson’s sizzling chemistry with Raylan; Boyd’s true return to form; Loretta finally discovering what happened to her father; […]

Our name says it all: we’re TV Goodness. But every once in a while we have to talk about shows we’re not enjoying and why. This holiday season we thought we get into the spirit and “talk turkey” about some of the shows that are not now and will never […]

2011 Emmy Watch

The 2011 Emmy nominations were announced this morning, and hot damn! did they get it right for so many new nominees. There were the usual snubs, which suck, but I’m focusing on the positive.

Justified’s Moment of Goodness: Mags Asks to See Loretta

I’m going to call this an ominous moment of goodness because Margo Martindale scared the bejesus out of me in this episode. It’s been building all season and she finally admitted it to Loretta tonight: she’s always wanted a daughter. She’s constantly disappointed in her sons and they’re constantly letting her […]

Justified “The Moonshine War”

Raylan’s back in the saddle for season two and the premiere picks up at the moment last season’s finale ended, with Raylan, Ava, and Boyd pinned down as the shooting subsides. Daddy Crowder lays lifeless outside so Raylan tells Boyd to get Ava to safety, and we presume he does, […]
