Thanks for telling us Nikita got better, readers.

Person of Interest - “Mission Creep”
This show is definitely a procedural, but it’s a decent one, so we watch it, even though there are pouts on our faces about the 24-like serial that might have been. In this episode, the machine coughed up the number of a former Marine named Joey. When he returned from the Middle East, he joined a crew of former soldiers who have become thieves for hire, because he wanted to get money for his dead solider buddy’s little girl. Reese saves Joey, duh. The man behind it all is named “Elias M.” and a man named Latimer works for him. We have a feeling that these two are going to crop up again. We also see that Reese used to have a girlfriend, and they clearly still have feelings for each other. We want to see the machine flashback now.
Episode grade: B+

Nikita - “Knightfall”
We’re finally caught up on this show. It got better around episode five. The first episode was all about sex appeal and stick-thin women inexplicably kicking the asses of large guys, and that turned us off. We’re not really the audience for that. But we marathoned the show once the whole season was out, and had developed enough of a story and fun pacing that it hooked us. There have been some changes since the first season. Notably, Alex is now with Division as a mercenary and Amanda is running the whole thing.

We enjoy the game change, but we look forward to Percy getting out of his Magneto prison. During this episode, Nikita foiled a Division op yet again! Even though one of us hates Shane West, we like Michael and Nikita together. The end opened up new possibilities for Alex’s character. That’s good. It’s nice to keep things moving while having week-to-week missions. We'd really like to see some follow-up with the Nathan character. Last we saw him, he had found out about Alex's secret and shot Alex's rival, killing her. What happened to that guy? Doesn't Alex still want to make babies with him?
Episode grade: B

A Gifted Man - “In Case of Discomfort”
The formula for this show seems to be “one rich patient, one poor patient.” The rich patient had some sort of bug in her brain from eating pork (aaaand we’ve just picked up the pork-eating habits of Jews and Muslims) and the poor patient had heart problems. Rachel Lefevre showed up to run the clinic. We don’t know why we are enjoying this show, because it has a lot of the factors we usually hate. Case-by-case, not too attached to the characters (what happened to Michael’s sister and nephew?), and nothing too unique. And yet, we continue to enjoy.
Episode grade: B


  1. Lol, you're welcome ;) Well Nikita has been good this season, but not as great as the second half of season 1. Hope it gets back to being awesome for me :)
    I like Person of Interest just because I'm curious about the machine so I'll keep watching it.

    Also, one of my top Monday shows is Castle, (which wasn't in the options).

  2. It has only been three episodes. And the game change restarted things, so it probably has to build to a climax again.

    Oh, Castle. The previews for that show were so cheesy and lame in the first season that we skipped it all together. Never seen a single episode. However, it's on our list to watch after we catch up on "Justified."

  3. Oh you're missing out it's a great show and I love it :)

  4. Ughhhh we both hate and love to hear that. We will watch it when school slows down.

  5. What I like about Nikita is that it doesn't feel like the episodes repeat the same thing. Each episode feels pretty new. Different mission, different scene, etc..

    I also find all the characters interesting. Though, I'm not too sure about Michael but I don't really mind him. I think Birkoff is one of the coolest nerds on TV right now. I also find Percy and Amanda's fun seeing them together. I can't stop starring at Alex when she comes on screen...she's too damn gorgeous and Lyndsy Fonseca is a good actor. She's like the heart of the show, Birkoff is the humor/makes you love nerds, Nikita is the cold person with the heart, Percy and Amanda are entertaining in their bad way. I also can buy that Nikita can kick ass because Maggie Q really does make it look as if she's trained (while she is pretty skinny, she looks strong because of how she fights..if you know what I mean.)

    Nikita's C rated episodes are much better then any action movie that comes out. I also think the C rated Nikita episodes are not as boring as the C rated episodes of some of the cable dramas (or broadcast shows). (The critic sites I visit give about the same score..and I usually agree with them)

  6. One of us doesn't like the actor who plays Michael. Birkoff and Amanda are awesome.

    And agree about the worst episodes being as good or better than average action movies.
