"The Voice" Battles Continue, Six Artists Advance

By Karen Moul

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.

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?
