Revolution, The Good Wife, 666 Park Avenue, Downton Abbey

Revolution- The Plague Dogs
It was good to see everyone reunited. Gettin' real tired of your s***, Miles. We cried a little when Maggie died, mostly because of the flashbacks. Now Miles really can't leave. Ha. It's becoming a thing for shows to kill off prominent characters after a handful of episodes (The Vampire Diaries, Once Upon a Time), so we didn't figure Maggie was safe. The stuff with Charlie being so important to Maggie came out of nowhere. In the pilot, we got the sense that they didn't get along and Charlie wouldn't be too bugged if Maggie died. We guess the last couple of weeks changed things.

We like that move. Danny's  moral conundrum was interesting this week. The right thing to do was obviously to keep the sink thing from falling on Neville somehow and then leaving him trapped under the wood, giving Danny the chance to run away. That thing was big, so it probably wasn't possible. So Danny could either let this guy die or show mercy. The second most right thing to do is what Danny did. Or is it? Neville will go on to kill and terrorize others. Danny might have been saving lives by ridding the world of Neville. There's no duty to save. Dude, we think we might have let Neville die. We're cold.

We're getting tired of detours, but this paranoid dude was interesting. It's time for Danny to get to Rachel and Monroe. Hilariously, saving Neville is only going to get Danny tortured in front of his mom. Two guys called a woman the word "bitch." We don't care for that. At least the guys were baddies. Never call us that, or you'll see what a bitch really is. In other news, Rachel really does love her kids and Miles likely knows that she is still alive, but he hasn't told Charlie.
Episode grade: B

The Good Wife- And the Law Won
It's a bad day for Alicia. She is soooo classy. "I'm not playing that game...Thunderdome." Lots of people dislike the Kalinda storyline right now, but we're into it as long as it goes somewhere important. It's interesting. Her husband is definitely an idiotic, psycho jerk. She should call the police and have him thrown back in jail. She's too smart to have lust cloud her judgment. Also, it's not like this guy is hot enough to get away with acting like this. The ice cream scene was hilarious, and he sure can drink a glass of Perrier menacingly. We knew that the jury can now turn questions over to the court, but we'd never seen TV take advantage of it before. Timely, show. Hopefully Maddie will be a good friend for Alicia. For some reason, we don't trust her. We're anxious to see what she's doing on the show. Will Gardner owned Richard Gilmore. That was a great case. We missed Cary this week. He was only in one scene.
Episode grade: B+

666 Park Avenue- Murmurations
Why is Tony so rude? Nona seems to know what's going on, but she also seems like a nice person. She clutched her rabbits foot and saw the future. So she has a psychic rabbit's foot...or she's psychic. We don't know. Why did the show choose to have Jane and Henry unmarried? Is that going to become important. Gavin did the right thing giving Louise and her playwrite husband that money. They got hurt in his building by his elevator. We think the show should make Jane a brunette or a redhead. That might make her more likable. It would also get rid of her roots.

Lots of people have been comparing this show to American Horror Story, with 666 Park Avenue coming in second place. There is room for this show and AHS in the world. They are both different. They are both enjoyable. We have more than one comedy. We can have more than one horror show. AHS is all shock factor with no build up. This show is in some trouble, ratings-wise, and we want to see where it's going and where the writers are going to take it before it gets pulled off the air, so do us a favor and check it out? This episode was creepy and entertaining. We just wish we were attached to the main characters.
Episode grade: B

Downton Abbey- Season/Series 3, Episode 4
We have Tom and Sybil back! Tom can't live in Ireland, so they are probably going to stay at Downton for a while and then move into a house in town. Little did we know last week when we saw the preview that Tom's troubles would equal good news for the viewers. We love those two. Charlie's grandfather is not someone we'd ever leave our child with, even if we were destitute. A man who judges and treats those beneath him "horribly" is not a man. That scene was really sad. Charlie is adorable. We hope that's not the end of Ethel's story and that she somehow gets her son back. Go Edith! We thought Sybil was the feminist of the family though. This show needs to be careful not to get repetitive. This was a quieter episode than most, but we were still entertained. We want more Mary/Matthew.
Episode grade: B


  1. Hey Ern and Leeard

    I have a theory about Jane's hair in 666. I think the roots are deliberate to reflect that Jane and Henry are not financially stable. Consequently Jane doesn't visit the hairdresser as often as she should - blonde roots should be touched up within 5 to 6 weeks, but due to their lack of surplus funds, it looks like Jane leaves it for 8 to 10 weeks.

    or maybe I'm looking too much into this, and basing this on personal experience.

    My husband and I are so far enjoying 666, and the hubbie thought AHS was camp.

    loving your blog


    1. That would make sense! It would also explain Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City. It's cool you guys are liking the show. Hopefully it starts to do better.

  2. Revolution: I'm ready for them to move the story along. It's going too slow. I also would have let Neville die.

    Downton Abbey: I really hope Tom doesn't do anything stupid. He's always been my favorite character and if he abandons Sybil it would be heartbreaking. I think Ethel did the right thing. Charlie's grandfather might be awful, but I liked what Ethel said about her original decision being for her own sake instead of Charlie's. She was selfless for the first time in this episode. I cried while watching it, but I agreed with her decision. (I was adopted, so that probably has something to do with it.) Sybil is the politician of the family so Edith can be the feminist. Also, can we talk about that new footman? I can't wait to see Thomas falling all over himself trying to get Jimmy to notice him. I also felt sad for Daisy getting snubbed. :(

    1. Pah hahahaha. Also, yeah it needs to get there. It's still trying to grab new viewers before moving into its storyline, but I feel like that ends up losing the viewers you already have.

      Tom won't abandon Sybil. No way. The fans would riot. Of course, it would put one of the other pretty/likable daughters on the market for more love stories.

      If the grandfather really loves Charlie, then it might turn out okay. I'm glad Ethel confirmed that fact near the end with the grandmother. The g-ma seems cool.

      Ugh...Thomas. The new footman hasn't shown us much we like so far. We're sick of pretty guys who know they are pretty. However, it's nice to have a show that acknowledges when people are good-looking, rather than treating it like it's the norm/not mentioning it like a lot of shows.

  3. I really liked this week’s episode of Revolution! Most of my coworkers at DISH gave up on it after the first or second episode, but I decided to stick around for a little bit. I was watching Castle Monday night, so I decided to watch this last night since it was recorded with my Hopper’s PrimeTime Anytime feature. I’m really excited to see what can happen next week, especially after Maggie’s death. This should be an incredible series going forward!
