spartacus-poster“Spartacus” is usually that kind of series that delivers unexpected reversals of fortune, to the point where it becomes almost impossible to imagine that much of an episode would be devoted to a plot device that is so overused as to be laughable. So it’s surprising that the writers would go with something like a “Trojan Horse” scenario, even if they did try to frame it in a way that illuminates Glaber’s character.

Week twelve brought us a landmark chapter of The Walking Dead, as the season’s slow build paid off with a truly game-changing episode. Rick and Shane finally brought their love-hate relationship to a resolution, and Shane’s death brought undeniable proof that the zombie infection is not passed by the walkers.

From the opening scene to the stunning climax, almost everything about “Better Angels” was right on. The tone of the episode was infused with a real sense of foreboding. The sudden cold weather, the grimness and depression, preparations for winter, it all created an undercurrent of threat that built to a stunning climax. Even Dale’s funeral had an air of danger. I loved the way Rick’s talk of humanity was juxtaposed against shots of the smaller group hunting walkers, not just beheading but beating and stomping them to death. It was personal, violent and showed how angry they are at losing Dale. But few viewers missed the irony of Rick’s voiceover about honoring Dale. I’m not sure this group is capable of taking Dale’s message to heart.

merlin"The Hunter's Heart" is a fairly good representation of "Merlin's" typical approach to blending an episodic story with the needs of an over-arching story, with the larger story taking a slightly heavier priority in this season than in any previous one. Most of the time, I've felt that the episodic storytelling detracts from the show's attempts to tell a serialized story, and that the connection between the two story layers was disappointingly thin. But at least in this case, the merger of the two stories feels relatively organic.

Justified_iconI love that this show's plot is so versatile that it will highlight certain characters in one episode, yet that doesn't take away from other characters. Here, Limehouse and Boyd get the spotlight. That doesn't mean Quarles is forgotten. Quarles is now Raylan's primary concern.

ringer_iconApparently, Siobhan's goal now is to get Andrew to kill her sister and then she can go to the police or the SEC to expose his business Ponzi scheme, make sure he's in prison, then run off to happiness with Henry. At least, I think that's what her plan is. It changes on the fly so often and is dependent on a lot of contrivances to move from point to point.

One actor who jumps out at you from the screen is Sean Berdy. Although he is a deaf actor, you would never consider it a handicap. He excels at bringing the deaf community to the forefront of the story and shows that it need not slow you down or hamper your abilities to dream big and make them come true.

the-secret-circle-iconThe winter cliffhanger for “The Secret Circle” didn’t exactly inspire much confidence in the direction the story was going, and sure enough, this episode seems to meander around a bit. There are some big moments, but they just don’t seem to have the same impact.

vampire-diaries-iconThe mystery of who might be running around Mystic Falls, taking out members of the founding families, has been percolating in the background for a little while now. All of the evidence seemed to point away from Alaric, and instead to someone trying to frame him. The truth, instead, is a lot stranger.

The Voice
battle rounds continued this week with twelve more contestants on the chopping block. Overall the performances were better than last week, although the coaches continued to pit similar singers against each other. This didn’t always result in a memorable duet. It does, however, set us up for some difficult decisions down the road.

In addition, some of the song choices seemed designed to favor certain artists, but this stage of the competition is no longer simply about vocal talent. Style and stage presence are becoming more important and to win this thing you’ve got to step out of your comfort zone and make a song your own.

Highlights of the episode included a fascinating performance by Lindsey and Lee singing Nirvana’s “Heart-Shaped Box.” Each struggled in rehearsal, but they both have such unusual voices that you either loved this matchup or hated it. Kim and Whitney were portrayed as the battle of the divas, but there was never much doubt that Kim’s age and experience would give her the edge.

Jamar and Jamie brought the episode to a climax with and an emotional segment that had both artists sobbing. Jamar is a strong competitor, both in terms of vocal talent and his inspiring personal story, and he has a real shoot at winning the recording contract.

After the episode, the six advancing artists spoke with us about their experiences in the battle round.

The Voice airs Mondays at 8 pm on NBC.
