This is reeeeeal late, but here it is: Glee, Parks, Grey's, Scandal, TVD

Parks and Recreation- Leslie vs. April
We were disappointed in Leslie this week for opposing April, but it led to funny things, and it's understandable that Leslie is still attached to that empty lot. The opening Joe Biden scene was awkward to us instead of funny, but Joe did a good job and it was a cute cameo. We're liking all the famous politicians popping up this season. It's always tasteful to make a fun, brief appearance on a critically acclaimed show. Andy got a security job? That is so much better than having that guy be an actual cop. Hoo boy. There were some fun lines about accounting, and we feel bad for the firm that keeps trying to hire Ben. It's best to have him out of there though for the sake of the show. Orin stole the episode with his Human Farm. We love him so much. He's used just enough though. Too much Orin would be bad.
Episode grade: B

Glee- Glease
We both hate and love that episode title. It was inevitable that Glee would do an entire Grease-themed episode with all the numbers exact copies of the scenes from the movie, so if you didn't like it, just rejoice that it's over and we can all move on. We thought it was okay. We didn't want to buy any of the songs since we've had the movie soundtrack since we were kids. We're glad Santana replaced Unique as Rizzo, but that's just going to prompt more Unique storylines as she tries to climb her way back into accepted exposure. We were so happy to see Rachel and Kurt after missing them last week. The show keeps repeating itself. We saw Rachel trying to throw up in season one, and now Marley tries it this season. Marley is adorable, but she was a little pathetic and dumb this week. She just needed to get a scale to see if she was actually gaining weight. You can't gain two inches in less than a week. It was obviously the clothes/a prank. Kate Hudson's character is evil, but we liked that development.
Episode grade: B-

Grey's Anatomy- Second Opinion
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. Not only are Arizona's attitude and mobility improving, but Cristina is back for good! It wasn't a visit. She gets to do whatever she wants in the OR, and she's a pretty good teacher too. Cristina finding out that Owen fought hard to get her back had to make him want to die. This guy has really suffered for that one night stand. We're pretty sure Cristina will make him suffer a little longer too. At least for the rest of the season. We're getting sick of the drama with April and Jackson. April, just accept that you're in a sexual relationship or actually get out of it. We like the idea of Kate and Alex together. The big twist at the end was that the crash victims would be suing Seattle Grace and the "people who put them on that plane" --Owen. How does that work? Was the hospital negligent in plane selection or something. We're going to need to hear some details on that case, because it doesn't sound like the hospital is the best party to go after at all.
Episode grade: B+

Scandal- Spies Like Us
The case of the week was so interesting that we're not even going to complain at length about Hot President still being at the summit. We finally got some background on Huck, former spy. His colleagues were perfectly cast and assembled. THAT'S how spies would look. They wouldn't look like Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. They would blend in. We felt bad for David Rosen, but we'll never feel bad for Abby. Olivia ended the episode closer to her ex than ever before. The president is going to get all broody over that, and we can't wait to see it. There's no sophomore slump for this show. 
Episode grade: A-

The Vampire Diaries- We All Go A Little Mad Sometimes
It's time for the show to move on from "Elena feels guilty" as the central conflict. We can't stay in that place for one more episode. We liked the hallucinations so that she actually had a reason to act all crazy and sad, but after this episode, a new problem needs to become more immediate. We're mad that Katherine wasn't real. The bulk of this episode was boring and filler. Klaus skulked around, killed a wolf, threatened Caroline (how dare he?!!), and tried to keep Elena safe. The best part was the end where Jeremy was awakened to his new purpose. That could lead to something a lot better than us watching Compassionate Elena cry over not being perfect. Boo frickety hoo. Let's get on with it. We want Man vs. Man, not Man vs. Himself.
Episode grade: B-


  1. Glee was alright. I'm really not sure how I feel about this season. The Marley, Jake, Kitty, new guy love thing is sorta interesting, but it feels like a repeat of Finn, Rachel, Quinn. Also, Kate Hudson's character is a bit much for me. It's almost like there trying to make a younger, skankier, NYC version of Sue. Seems like the writers are running out of fresh ideas. Grey's was good. I like that Christina is back & Arizona is finally starting to get off the pitty pot! I like that Meredith sold her house to Alex. Think that could be interesting. Oh, and they twist at the end with them suing the hospital could be VERY good. Vampire Diaries was alright. I agree they need to move on from Elena feeling guilty. *yawn* it's getting old. But I do like that there could be a chance for Elena & Damon now

    1. Instead of having new characters, the show just subbed in duplicates of the old ones, only these are more cartoonish because Kitty isn't as sympathetic as Quinn. If Jake gets Kitty pregnant, we're going to be pissed.

      The Elena/Damon/Stefan triangle probably won't be resolved until the final season

  2. Kitty doesn't have any of the depth that Quinn did, even at her craziest she was understandable. I don't know why Marley believed Kitty's "fat gene" story when her mom straight up told her it was because she overate? Also, aren't Santana, Mike and Mercedes supposed to be in out of state colleges? Santana was a good Rizzo but it was a bit ridiculous that she came from college to play her instead of getting Tina or someone to fill in. This show is getting too unrealistic.

    1. Marley should be less worried about her weight and more worried that she's a moron. LIKE MOST TEENAGE GIRLS.

      I'd fly back to my high school to play a lead role for the night, you bet. If you really like doing that, you would. Poor Tina though. This is not her year.
