Playing Hearts: Suits, Season 4, episode 7

Thursday, August 7th, 2014

Suits has made some good progress in recent episodes, but I’ve still been a little hard on it. I have commented multiple times on my dislike of the Logan/Rachel storyline, which adds next to nothing to Rachel’s character. That being said, I can only really focus on this so much. I understand that they have […]


REVIEW: The Strain (Pilot)

Saturday, July 26th, 2014

As a fan of programs like Fringe and Supernatural, The Strain seemed right up my alley. Despite peculiar dialogue choices and an unusually paced pilot, I believe there’s definitely some potential here. I like long pilots. Suits really made this case for me, with a pilot that was flawlessly paced and extremely efficient. The Strain’s […]

Following the quality of episode 4, I was very much hoping Suits would maintain its momentum. Thankfully, it has; Season 4 Episode 5 exemplifies so much of Suits’ strongest characteristics. Lately, I have emphasized the importance of Suits following its grassroots as a legal drama, pacing its character development under that framework. The great thing […]


Playing Hearts: Suits episode 4 back on track

Monday, July 14th, 2014

Suits, Season 4, Episode 4 I had certain expectations for this season that episode 3 was unable to fulfill. With episode 4, however, Suits has made great progress. After the last episode, I mentioned the importance of sticking to the appeal that made Suits so good. At first, I stressed the importance of the viewing […]


REVIEW: Mixed martial arts event UFC 175

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

The mixed martial arts event UFC 175 was a well-planned card, which very much actualized its potential. It’s no secret that the UFC has been working to put great fights on free TV. With the Fox Sports 1 prelim card, we saw exactly how welcome an addition these free fights can be to a pay […]


Playing Hearts: Suits episode 3 doesn’t live up to expectations

Saturday, June 28th, 2014

Suits. Season 4, Episode 3. “Two in the Knees.” I was less than pleased with the latest episode of Suits. But my impression of season 4 prior to this episode had been largely positive and many great shows have a few duds in between their best episodes. When looking at a show in this sort […]

Suits - Season 4

I was pleased with the season four premiere of Suits and I am quite happy to see that they’ve kept the momentum going. As I said in my post regarding last week’s episode, Suits is all about the experience. I also stressed the importance of keeping the show fresh, and season four, episode two, is […]


As Seen on TV: Suits season 4 off to a promising start

Monday, June 16th, 2014

Suits has provided me with quite a bit of entertainment throughout its first three seasons, but admittedly the final moments of season three left me concerned and I started to worry about its journey into season four. After revisiting Mike’s unstable relationship with his fraudulent legal career so many times, you do hit a point […]


Frugal Friday: Frugal Fitness

Friday, April 11th, 2014

The “Freshman 15” is something that many university student dread. Stress snacking, cooking for yourself for the first time, and lack of time to get active are all reasons why post-secondary students might put on a few pounds during their first—or even second, third, or fourth—year of university. There is also the issue that nutritious […]


As Seen on TV: Spoiler alert!?

Tuesday, March 25th, 2014

No, there’s not really any spoilers in this article. Well, maybe a few. But more importantly, I want to explore an idea that has always been foreign to me: that of “spoiling” the plot of a movie, a book, or a television show. I’m that dorky kid that will read the first half of a […]
