‘Grey’s Anatomy’: Bailey Wrecks Her Relationship With Her Husband & Her Mentor

Thursday night’s episode of “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Thriller,” put a medical twist on the Halloween episode, cleverly using horror movie-style camera work and music, along with patients who seem slightly supernatural, to put a fresh spin on the show’s typical bizarre medical problems and relationship angst.

‘Scandal’: Operation Remington Is the Mother of All Secrets

This week’s episode of “Scandal,” “More Cattle Less Bull,” seemingly explained Operation Remington. Fitz’s secret mission turned out to be, like everything else Fitz does, all about Olivia. Our heroine kept busy representing his potential presidential rival and, most importantly, wearing her most fabulous dress yet.

‘Castle’: Da Vinci’s Scavenger Hunt

This week’s episode of “Castle“, “Get a Clue,” inexplicably was not a Halloween episode. “Castle” is a show made for Halloween. Castle (Nathan Fillion)¬†dressing as Mal from “Firefly” on a previous Halloween episode was one of the show’s greatest moments. Why deprive fans of the pleasure of seeing the engaged Beckett (Stana Katic) and Castle […]

‘Revenge’: The Revenge-Free Episode

There was very little revenge in this week’s episode of “Revenge,” “Control.” Unfortunately, there was no red Sharpie and the soundtrack did not feature Janet Jackson’s “Control.” But we did find out who sabotaged Conrad’s brakes and got to see a glimpse of a highly anticipated sex scene.

‘Scandal’: Olivia Kisses Jake & Learns the Truth About Operation Remington

“Scandal” aired its Anthony Weiner inspired episode, awesomely titled “Say Hello to My Little Friend,” just twenty four hours after “Law & Order: SVU” aired its take on the photo-sexting congressman. Perhaps Weiner could have avoided this humiliation had he hired real life Olivia Pope, and “Scandal” producer, Judy Smith long before his political career […]

‘Good Wife’ Producer Previews Sunday’s ‘Life-Altering’ Episode

Lots of television episodes are described as game-changing. This Sunday’s episode of “The Good Wife” — ominously titled “Hitting the Fan” — actually lives up to the billing. When Lockhart-Gardner splits into two firms, every single relationship on the show is forever altered. Friends become enemies. Allegiances shift. The love triangle that drove the show’s […]

‘Grey’s Anatomy’: Good Dad, Bad Dad

Thursday night’s episode of “Grey’s Anatomy“, “Map of You,” was, according to Derek’s voiceover narration, about the connections that the brain makes and how they impact behavior. Actually, that’s the biological description of thinking and therefore the subject of every single work of fiction ever. This was really an episode about good and bad parenting. […]
