Everybody Misses Peter

Sons of Anarchy - “Brick”
This one was a little snoozy for us. Maybe it was that there was too much Lyla? Or any Lyla?
Episode grade: C+

Revenge - “Betrayal”
One of us is actually growing bored with this show. It’s too “procedural of the week,” and there is no emotional connection. The other blogger is still fully on board and is obsessed with both Victoria and Amandily. We both think that Daniel is an alright guy, and it’s a shame we know he dies so that we can’t get attached to the character. The actor who plays Declan doesn’t work for one of us, because he comes across as a little boy, not a complicated teen crush.
Episode Grade: B-
Parenthood - “Clear Skies from Here on Out”
Poor Crosby. We rarely say that, but there was no winning in that scenario. We also feel bad for Haddie who got dumped by her guy because he doesn’t feel good enough for her and is ashamed to be around her family. We hope they don’t end like that.
Episode grade: B+

Prime Suspect - “Bitch”
We liked the pilot of this show, and it keeps improving on the pilot greatly. The last two cases have been interesting and satisfying. Of course, it’s easy to root for a main character when she’s up against child nappers and woman beaters. But we just think that’s a smart move to get Jane Timoney a following before she gets axed without cause.
Episode grade: B+

Fringe - “Alone in the World”
Yes, Walter and Olivia totally should start trying to find Peter. This episode had a lot of emotion, which is sometimes missing from this show. The little boy was adorable, as was Walter trying so hard to save him. Furthermore, the case was creepy and Walter’s little breakdown was also unsettling. We like when this show disturbs us.
Episode grade: A-


  1. Fringe! Did anyone get the Breaking Bad reference? Gus, Walter, and the young kid named Aaron (Well..the actor who plays Jesse on BB :P) and the whole thing actually made it seem like a similar thing that is going on with Breaking Bad's characters.

    This season has been getting better in the case-of-the-week part, imo. It's been lame for a while...I also like how it's different without Peter.

    I'm sure we'll find out about Peter soon. I don't think that part of the show is going to drag like The Killing or Pretty Little Liars..haha

    I'm hoping for a season 5. I don't want anything more. Season 5 sounds good enough for me. (This will probably be the last) Last night's episode was up in the ratings... :)

  2. We didn't catch that. But we should have. Yay for ratings, but we still think it might end with four.

  3. Fringe suffers from the X-Files bug in that it does best when it focuses on a tight storyline about something very creepy, and this episode proves that truism. I like this show so much better when it stays as far away from the main plot as possible. I find the whole two world/observer thing almost boring now.

    A good monster story and lots of Walter, though, and I am all in.

  4. You've got a point. We usually can't stand case of the week-driven shows and like overarching plots/serials. But Fringe is best when it's like this. We're still kind of interested in the Peter thing though...

  5. I disagree about "Fringe"'s freak of the week episodes. Like "The X-Files", I much prefer the show when it's playing the serialized drama card. To each her own, I guess! My favorite episodes, though, are ones that are both a little stand-alone and a little overarching, like last season's "The Plateau". The Peter thing is interesting, but I think they need something else to stir the pot a little more this season.

    Agree on all counts about "Parenthood" and "Prime Suspect". I'm glad both are reliably watchable shows. Maria Bello is just freaking fantastic on "PS".

    I'm with blogger #2 on "Revenge": so much silly fun! I wonder how long they can sustain the main concept, but I'm enjoying the ride, nonetheless. I'm not on board with the actor playing Declan, either. He's hard to take seriously post-Gossip Girl.

    "Amandily". Hehe.

  6. This is gonna sound bad, but Declan still seems gay to us. He did that too well on GG. And now he's a romantic straight lead? We can't go there. Many gay guys can and have pulled off the straight character. No idea of this guy's sexual orientation in real life, but he's more believable gay.
