Homeland, Revolution, The Good Wife

Homeland- Two Hats
Whoa, this show. We were confused at first, but we're pretty sure we know what went down. Peter Quinn is even more awesome than we previously thought, and he was already campaigning for the title of Our Favorite Character On This Show. His mission is to kill Brody once they have Nazir. That makes a lot of sense, because you don't want Brody in government, and you don't want it all to come out. That's a pretty significant development (even if it was doled out in the most convoluted, stupid way imaginable), and that's not all. Brody met with Nazir, and we didn't see the full scene. There's something there that we don't know, most likely. Maybe Nazir re-turned Brody. Brody has to be holding something back from the way the scene was given to us. Only a few left!
Episode grade: B+

Revolution- Nobody's Fault But Mine
In this episode, things finally happened. This should have been, you know, the fifth episode of this show, but it had to drag things out ridiculously. Nothing surprising happened (and there should have been some twist we couldn't have called), but we finally got some plot advancement. Rachel is free, Monroe has power, and Danny is rescued. The bromance could have been handled better. In superior writers' hands, it could have been emotional and heartbreaking, turning Monroe into a character you could really feel for. These writers are hacks though. We think we will finish this season, but unless things change and we start to care more, this show won't earn a season two pass. If this by-the-numbers episode was their big midseason finale, they've got work to do.
Episode grade: B

The Good Wife- A Defense of Marriage
Alicia and Diane did exactly right. Put your client over politics. You are fighting for their interests, not their cause. Nick and Cary are nearly openly threatening each other. KILL HIM, Cary. We love Stockard Channing, but it's too bad that her character was so nasty. Just what we need, another woman portrayed as a lying gold digger. We see way more of those on TV and in the movies than in real life. We felt bad for Peter finally getting boned by his wife for all the wrong reasons. Get rid of Veronica. She's making our girl Alicia cray. We loved seeing Owen again though. This episode should have been called "The Rules of Evidence." Also, that judge should be sacked since Alicia had to explain really common rules to her like twice. Too bad the gay couple was portrayed as unable to control sexual urges/sleep with only one guy. That's just the kind of stereotype that community needs spread right now. We were entertained, but we didn't like what went down.
Episode grade: B-
