The Mentalist: Scarlett Fever

Margerite MacIntyre and Simon Baker on The Mentalist

(S01E15)
The Mentalist never fails to entertain, even when the case is obvious. There was something about the writing or directing of this show early in the season; I could peg every killer nearly the moment he or she was onscreen, because of the weird shifty thing they did.

Well, that didn't happen in this episode; instead, they dropped the biggest, most obvious clue in the history of procedurals. I kept hoping that it was a red herring, but no. I'm not saying that I didn't enjoy this episode; I loved the twists and turns the case took, but I hated knowing, absolutely knowing, who the killer was, in that different way than just the shifty stuff.

My post-Comic-Con report, part two

Friday

Morning was weird, as I was still on east-coast time. My alarm was set for 7 AM, but I was wide-awake by 5:30. I was scheduled to go to an X-Box breakfast that morning, but I was getting freaked out that I'd miss getting in to wait for the Stargate panels, most of which I was saving for Rich but I knew would be incredibly popular and busy. Thankfully I made the right decision -- the line for Ballroom 20 was already insane by the time I arrived.

As I waited for Ballroom 20, I saw another line creeping up the patio outside. I learned that this was just a glimpse of what to expect with waiting for panels in the enormous Hall H, as the line I saw was for the popular Watchmen panel. Trust me, part of me was jealous I wasn't in that line to see the new footage.

Kyle XY: I've Had The Time Of My Life (season finale)

Kyle XY
(S02E23) "There's really no formula for perfection." - Nicole

Expectations. Everyone had expectations this week, including myself. Sadly, the season finale of Kyle XY didn't meet my expectations. The previous episodes had set everything up for a rocking finale and, instead, we were treated to a mushy prom filled with teen angst, expectations, mishaps, and a spiked punch. It was such a letdown that I wonder if the the writers were already in strike mode when they wrote this. In retrospect, episode 2.22 would have served as a better season finale.

Kyle XY: Hello...

(S02E22) "I think it's time we introduce ourselves." - A Latnok member

Wow! Another great Kyle XY episode that paved the way for what will surely be a rocking finale. What? You thought this was the finale because it's episode 2.22? ABC Family is actually treating us with a 23rd hour of XY this season! So expect to see the prom unfold, more Sarah and Jessi dealings, and surely more Latnok. In the meantime, let's deal with this week's Jessi-centric episode, "Hello..."

Kyle XY: Grey Matters

Kyle XY
(S02E21) "We need to prove that we matter." - Brian about himself and Jessi

It smells like the season is almost over, no? Episodes are getting better and offer us a good crop of background info and mysteries (aka everything Sarah-related and Brian's end game). The most interesting storyline this week was probably that of Kyle exchanging messages with the "anonymous" person, tracking down Sarah and finally coming face to face with her. We've been waiting weeks for this reveal and it's finally here! You can bet that with the way the episode ended, episode 2.22 will be Sarah-centric.

Kyle XY: Primary Colors

Kyle XY
(S02E20) "I'm alive." - Sarah

As many of us theorized, Sarah is alive and kicking. What we don't know though is where she is, why she sent the disk to Jessi and not Adam, how she discovered Jessi and where she lives, what her end game is, etc. The reveal of her being alive was interesting as in tapped in Kyle's abilities and showed everyone what could happen if Kyle was "mediocre" (Jessi's word here not mine).

Kyle XY: First Cut Is The Deepest

Kyle XY
(S02E19) "The human body has its own built-in repair kit." - Kyle


This week's episode put the wheels in motion for a finale that will surely have us finally coming face-to-face with Sarah. I don't buy that she's dead. If Adam can heal himself, surely Sarah could too and probably better and faster than he could. Plus, the episode was way too Sarah-heavy not to mention her again in the four upcoming episodes of the season.

Kyle XY: Grounded

Kyle XY
(S02E17) "This family means everything to me." - Kyle

The boy without a belly button was put under the microscope this week on Kyle XY. Okay, not a real microscope but still, the social worker asked tough questions to the Tragers and Kyle and visited the house to make sure Kyle was raised in a safe place. Because of this unexpected visit, the teens plotted and planned together in order to get rid of cases of beer and porn, hide Amanda and... take care of the tub situation. "Grounded" was pretty much a filler episode. The storylines didn't really move forward and there wasn't much new info revealed about the characters.

Kyle XY: Great Expectations

Kyle XY
(S02E16)
"We need to talk." That statement was key in this week's episode. Still learning about the world, Kyle didn't know what the statement could mean. For him (and Jessi), it meant that the other person wanted to...well, talk! But for the entire Trager family, it meant that Amanda was ready to call it quits. I was sure that she didn't want to break up but I expected her to reveal that something terrible happened to her while in the Big Apple.

Kyle XY's January return

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Nov 21st 2007 2:39PM
Kyle XYKyle XY fans rejoice! TV Guide reports that our favorite super-teen with no belly button returns to the small screen on January 14 in its regular timeslot. That is when we'll learn if Jessi survived her fall (although if you can't wait until then, keep reading).

And we have another reason to be celebrate, the cast and crew had time to complete the 10 remaining episodes of Season 2 before the writers' strike started.

Spoilers ahead!

Kyle XY will return for a 3rd season

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Oct 8th 2007 12:02PM
Kyle XYMore secrets and lies! More Madacorp! More mysteries! More Foss! Sorry, I guess the news that Kyle XY will return for a third season got to me. Those who read my Kyle XY reviews over the summer know that I'm a Foss fan, so I sure hope they find a way to have him stick around as long as possible.

Various sources confirm that even if the last ten episodes of Season 2 have yet to air, ABC Family is satisfied enough with how Kyle XY performed over the summer (and probably with how the second part of the current season looks) that they decided to renew the series.

Kyle XY: Leap of Faith (midseason finale)

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Sep 6th 2007 4:42PM
Kyle XY(S02E13) Last week's episode put the wheels in motion for the midseason finale of Kyle XY. "Leap of Faith" not only answered questions (what was the connection between Adam and that Jessi-looking woman) but also raised tons of new ones (who is keeping Adam alive and why). Even if most of the fans have been pleased with the pace at which the show answers questions, the wait between now and the midseason premiere will be quite long.

Kyle XY: Lockdown

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Sep 1st 2007 11:32AM
Kyle XY(S02E12) "Lockdown" is the episode before the midseason finale (yes, it's already that time of year!). The episode pushed the storylines further in order to set the tone for this coming Monday's episode, "Leap of Faith."

Thanks to Nicole setting a lockdown, Andy and Josh came to an understanding, Declan and Lori talked things through, Amanda and Kyle explained one another (well, sort of), and Kyle was able to get guidance for his next move. But let's not forget that the lockdown also had an effect on Nicole and Stephen, who somewhat grew more apart but, in the end, made their way back together.

Kyle XY: Hands on a Hybrid

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Aug 22nd 2007 8:28PM
Kyle XY(S02E11) After two action packed episodes, I expected this week's installment of Kyle XY to be a filler episode. When watching the first minutes of "Hands on a Hybrid," I thought I was right but the rest of the episode proved me wrong. Not only did the episode tell us more about Madacorp's business and how far Ballantine is willing to go, but Kyle and Jessi finally know they are alike.

Kyle XY: House of Cards

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Aug 17th 2007 11:58AM
Kyle XY(S02E10) Sorry for the delay in posting my review of this week's episode. Let's resume it to: Life got in the way. Again this week, Kyle XY entertained us with a great episode that helped further the storyline. The writers are definitely setting the stage for the mid-season finale (aka episode 2.13).

Josh tried to get Andy to confide in him. Kyle and Amanda's relationship was put to the test. Emily continued her ploy to have the Tragers think she and Stephen are having an affair (and it worked on Lori). Ballantine got a lot of screen time, and a first name. Foss and Declan had to work together in order to help Kyle. Nicole discovered that Jessi and Kyle may have a lot more in common than just being teenagers... Kyle finds that out too!
