Alcatraz 1.8 Review: "Clarence Montgomery"

By John Keegan and Henry Tran

alcatraz_iconThe most troubling thought I had while watching this episode of "Alcatraz" was that the guest star playing the Criminal of The Week was far more interesting than the main cast. This has been the case for much of the show's admittedly uneven season thus far, but it particularly stood out to me here. The show's writers can't seem to find much variety from the norm here, as Clarence Montgomery apparently keeps committing murder in the same fashion as he did in the past. It's consistent with all the other criminals from 1963 who have come forward to the future, but there is still no explanation for why they are acting in this manner. I fear we may never get that explanation with the show running so close to the end.

Once Upon a Time 1.15 Review: "Red Handed"

By John Keegan and Edmund Boys

once_upon_a_timeIf “Once Upon A Time” was America’s greatest satirist (and tweaker of Arthurian legend), it might tell me the rumors of its death have been greatly exaggerated. Since its writers will never equal even the misquoted Twain, it decided to send the delectable Meghan Ory to whisper similar sentiments in my ear. Certainly her sections are a return to form. And I swear my judgment was not impaired by all the blood that rushing from my brain.

The Good Wife 3.17 Review: "Long Way Home"

By John Keegan and Henry Tran

thegoodwife-iconThis show has never feared what's coming in the future for its characters. A lot of this episode addresses that notion, particularly with regard to Alicia. She's prompted to look at expensive houses because her landlord might evict them from their luxury condo. Her kids are soon to be in college. If she goes through with the divorce from Peter (and that's looking more and more remote), that's a significant loss of income despite her position as a high-powered lawyer.

Person of Interest 1.17 Review: "Baby Blue"

By John Keegan and Edmund Boys

person_of_interest_iconI had promised myself I’d stop using movie analogies when reviewing “Person of Interest”. I’d give myself a chance to stretch and find new ways to sum up the show. But the producers obviously were onto my plan. Perhaps they actually have a Machine, but one that anticipates the viewers’ every thought. How else to explain “Baby Blue”, which I can only describe as their take on “Three Men and a Baby”, with a decidedly lethal twist?

The River 1.7 Review: "The Experiment"

By John Keegan

the-river-icon“The River” takes a step back from the psychological horrors of the previous episode and turns to something a bit more familiar to genre fans in this installment. I would call this the “Resident Evil episode”, because that was precisely what was coming to mind from the start. And given my usual lack of enthusiasm for zombie stories (closer to loathing, actually), I was surprised at how well this episode worked for me.

The Walking Dead 2.12 Review: "Better Angels"

By John Keegan and Gregg Wright

The-Walking-Dead-iconI think it's safe to say that this season hasn't been as impressive, overall, as I'd hoped it would be. There have been some high points, to be sure, but the bulk of the drama unfolding at the farm has been disappointingly bland and underwhelming.

Lost Girl 1.9 Review: "Fae Day"

By John Keegan and Paul Pearson

Lost-Girl-Season-2-thumbThis installment comes across as a bit innocuous, a low-key story compared to the Wham! moments of "Vexed" and just what's needed to keep things moving in a fun little show like "Lost Girl". A good old fashioned Fae holiday, combined with a chance for the show's ensemble darkhorse to spread her wings a little, certainly doesn't disappoint.

Spartacus: Vengeance 2.7 Review: "Sacramentum"

By John Keegan

spartacus-posterBecause nothing happens without purpose in a season of “Spartacus”, unless the real world intervenes, all that tension between the rebel factions was going to bubble to the surface before long. With Agron feeling more and more on the outside, especially with Oenomeus back in the fold, it was almost inevitable that he would rescue a large group of his own people over Gauls. And it takes no time at all for them to get out of Agron’s control.

Grimm 1.14 Review: "Plumed Serpent"

By John Keegan

Grimm-2When it comes to fleshing out a relatively standard story involving a semi-obsessed “girlfriend” who wants to take out the competition, one can do a lot worse than to cast Danielle Panabaker as a fire-dancing stripper. It left me wishing, on some level, that she could stick around as a supporting character for a while, especially since they dropped the ball on what could have been a perfect opportunity to pull Juliette into the fold.
