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 […]

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 […]

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

???????????????????

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 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.

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 […]

 

As Seen on TV: Cosmos, A Television Odyssey

Tuesday, March 11th, 2014

Although I am much too young to have seen the first airing of Cosmos: A Personal Voyage back in 1980, the premise of Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey is much the same as its predecessor. In case you missed part one which aired on March 9, this new Cosmos is a thirteen-part series which explores the […]

Growing up, I was pretty lucky. I had a lot of older cousins that were boys, so I inherited a lot of dinkies, a few action figures, and a lot of toys that are generally thought of to be “boy” toys. I was also equally lucky to have an array of Barbie dolls, cooking sets, […]

“Repiloting can be intense” according to Abed Nadir, but however intense it can be, it was pulled off by Community. Dan Harmon is back and the world of television is a better place! Those of you watch Community will know how great that is. Those of you who don’t watch Community, why don’t you watch […]
