'Nip/Tuck' - 'Christian Troy II' Recap

(S07E07) "Am I really this ugly?" - Christian As 'Nip/Tuck' winds down (if you can believe it, there's only two episodes left), an episode like 'Christian Troy II' (the first Christian-as-patient episode was in season two) was inevitable. Despite their numerous similarities, the one thing that Christian has always had more of than Sean is feelings of inadequacy. Granted, when you consider the...

'Nip/Tuck' - 'Dr. Griffin' Recap

(S07E06) "It's not like we're a couple or anything." - Sean Saving the best for last, the final season of 'Nip/Tuck' is firing on all cylinders right now and 'Dr. Griffin' easily stands out as one of the final run's, and possibly the series', finest episodes. Highlighting the symbiotic, and often parasitic, relationship that Drs. McNamara and Troy have shared over the years, 'Dr. Griffin'...

'Lost' - 'What Kate Does' Recap

(S06E03) "It's the Others, dude. They caught us ... again." - Hurley As 'What Kate Does' unfolded, I couldn't help but shake the feeling that everything we're witnessing in the "post-Jughead worked" 2004 time-line is going to end up being very important. Of course, that could have been due to the fact that in this past week's Official 'Lost' Audio Podcast, Cuse and Lindelof essentially laid...

Review: 'Damages' - 'Flight's at 11:08'

(S03E03) "Tonight's been educational." - Patty Educational it was, both for Patty Hewes and viewers alike, as last night's 'Damages' proved that it can tell one helluva narrative without any of those pesky "six months from now" flashes. 'Flight's at 11:08' isn't the first episode to put the back and forth, past/present/future jumps on the back-burner, but it is the earliest it's happened in a...

Review: 'House' - '5 to 9'

(S06E14) "You can do it." - Cuddy I get the reason for making an episode like '5 to 9.' Long running show that's popular. Established characters and story structure. The desire for David Shore, Katie Jacobs, and the rest of the 'House' crew to try something different is to be expected. However, that doesn't mean they should have done it. '5 to 9' wasn't a bad episode (in many ways, it felt...

Showrunner David Goyer Leaves 'FlashForward'

Since this past fall, have we heard any good news about 'FlashForward?' First, the show shut down production for a week to work out some creative issues (that's code for ABC execs not liking where the story was going). Then the drama's initial showrunner, Mark Guggenheim, got outta Dodge. And then, ABC announced an early DVD release for the first half of the season before it resumes its...

Review: 'Nip/Tuck' - 'Virginia Hayes'

(S07E05) "I dropped out in the second grade and I even know that this thing is a metaphor." - Escobar As some shows reach the end of their run, they often aren't able to properly address many of their most important lingering plots. Either the show is canceled abruptly and hardly anything gets answered or if it was a hit, network economics kick in and the show runs so long that what does or...

Review: 'Lost' - 'LA X, Parts 1 and 2' (Season Premiere)

(S06E01/S06E02) "We're back." - Kate Did you hear that? That was the collective sound of TV fans across the country all brain-farting in unison. 'Lost' is back for its final season and I've gotta be honest -- I'm not really sure what to think about 'LA X.' In four or five months time, once the series has concluded, I'm positive I'll think differently about it. However, right now, 'LA X' was...

Review: 'House' - 'Moving the Chains'

(S06E13) "Hey, I don't care where an idea comes from as long as it makes sense and embarrasses someone." - House I've long wondered if Foreman's brother Marcus was someone we'd eventually meet on 'House.' That being said, it's been six and a half seasons and even though we'd heard bits and pieces about him, I had reconciled that he just wasn't going to show up. If anything, the timing felt a...

Review: 'Damages' - 'The Dog is Happier Without Her'

(S03E02) "Yeah, sure. That's Tommy. He's a good egg. I helped him, he helped me." - The Homeless Man The questions kept flying tonight on 'Damages' as details from last week's stunning revelation continued to unfold -- in six months time, Tom Shayes is a dead man and now we have a better idea as to why. The only problem with that? There are still eleven episodes left, and assuming this season...
