We didn't suspect Mia, so that was a surprise. Someone would have gotten shot in this episode, especially when they were running from the machine guns on the bridge. We like Strausser, the new sociopathic villain. The Captain Neville plot was interesting. The forward movement this week (yes, there is a little every week) is Monroe getting the necklace. Also, Grace is in some compound with power. Revolution is entertaining enough, but it won't be LOST's heir. This show has none of LOST's eeriness, heart, and creativity. It's on our least-crowded night, so it should get a season pass just for lack of company. If it were on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday nights, it would get dropped.
Episode grade: C+
Homeland- The Clearing
Quinn is fine and alive! Yay. Just when this was the best show on right now, Homeland added a snarky hot guy we love. The Dana hit-and-run finally turned into something. We feel really bad for her. She wanted Finn to turn around. She did a brave thing this week, but Carrie and national security stood in the way of her peace of mind. We're feeling bad for Brody too. Aileen is back. We kind of forgot her, but her parts of the episode turned out to be some of the best. We felt bad for her.
Episode grade: B+
The Good Wife- Anatomy of a Joke
This is the most appealing we've seen Christina Ricci in a long, long time. Maybe it was the hair and makeup. They were really working for her. Maybe it was the way her part was written. You may have gotten frustrated at her self-destructive behavior, but clients often do and say stupid things that make their lawyers roll their eyes and groan. It's realistic! She wasn't funny though. Cary's father is such a jerk. He only calls his son to mend the relationship when he wants something? Cary handled it fine. But poor thing. At least he got kissed by a celebrity this week. Oh, and we've heard that rape/clown joke before. Was it George Carlin? We're not positive. We loved Amanda Peet getting the job with Peter. Does that mean we'll see her more? Will he sleep with her since she's pretty? The Hayden Clarke stuff is heating up. How will this affect Cary? Maddie is making feminists everywhere look bad. We hope Alicia dumps her as a friend, pronto. The birthmark shape could have been funnier.
