Revolution: Season 1 Episode 10 - Nobody's Fault But Mine

Hello Revolutionaries!  Well, they certainly left us on a cliffhanger for this "Mid-Season Finale" didn't they?  Will it be enough to bring us back in March?  Maybe.  I was more excited by the previews for the 2nd half of the season than the cliffhanger.  But, this episode was definitely a nice payoff for everything that was building in the 1st half of the season.  Lots of nice character building with our rivals Miles and Monroe and some good action sequences.  And of course, a few more "subtle" Star Wars references to mention.  Let's get into it!

The Walking Dead: Season 3 Episode 7 - When the Dead Come Knocking

Hello fellow Walkers and welcome back!  Whew this show started the season at a 9 intensity and has been cranking way past 10 ever since.  Even with this episode being a setup for next week's "Winter Finale" it still was packed with some crazy scenes and character moments.  By the way, if anyone has Verizon Fios, you better do your part to contact Verizon and tell them to keep the damn channel on the air (of course non-Verizon subscribers can contact them too if you want this recap to keep happening on a timely basis!)  We've already seen DirecTV and Dish lose the channel for a few weeks during negotiations.  We don't want to be missing any episodes of Walking Dead, Mad Men or Breaking Bad whenever we might lose the channel.

Anyway, enough complaining about corporate suits and their silly games.  Let's talk about the Zombie Apocalypse!

Revolution: Season 1 Episode 9 - Kashmir

Hello Revolutionaries!  Welcome back to our weekly coverage of the little show with a big concept that could.  I still feel that the show is on an upward trajectory with each episode.  Things are getting intense the closer they get to resolving this "Danny Rescue" conflict.  Of course, I'm going to have to give us all a lesson on the Philadelphia suburbs and the SEPTA transit system to clear up any misgivings that the show provided!  But, that aside, this was another solid outing.  Let's dive in!

The Walking Dead: Season 3 Episode 6 - Hounded

Hello Walking Dead Heads!  This season has been on a crazy tear so far, but I have to say that last night's episode was my favorite.  Of course, it takes a bunch of build-up to get a payoff episode like this one.  Finally, our plot lines are converging and I have to say that I didn't see it going exactly the way it did.  But, it was a brilliant way to do it!  So, Walking Dead gets a WOW from me this week.  Let's break it down a bit!

Weekly TV Discussion: 11/18/2012 - 11/24/2012

Fringe: Season 5 Episode 7 - Five-Twenty-Ten

Hello Fringe folks! Well, we're halfway through the final run.  How are we feeling?  Last night's episode was pretty darn crazy and equally creepy.  I'm going to give it a "WOW!" review just because I don't know how they're going to get out of this mess they're creating (and because I was entertained, obviously).  We certainly have our theories and we'll retouch on them below.  But, I keep feeling there's another twist up their sleeve that we're not seeing.  Peter with the tech has been pretty darn cool, but obviously it's concerning to fans on his fate.  And it was great to see ol' Nina Sharp again!  Halfway through the season and we've finally seen all of the remaining regular cast members.  It's a 13 hour movie, and since we're 7 hours in, things should start heading towards an inevitable climactic showdown and conclusion!  Here's hoping it's going to be one for the ages.  But, until then we have a job to do.  Let's recap and analyze the episode at hand!

Revolution: Season 1 Episode 8 - Ties That Bind

Hello Revolutionaries!  Welcome back for another helping of the swashbuckling power outage show!  I still maintain that the show keeps improving each week.  This week was no different.  And somehow, they found a worse actress than Charlie to make her look better in this episode!  (not that they had any face to face time)   We'll get to that in a bit.  But some interesting mythological developments occurred here.  We'll get into it below.  But, in case you tire of my constant Star Wars reference, I wanted to share an article about what inspired Eric Kripke and JJ Abrams to make this show.  Star Wars and Lord of the Rings were definitely huge draws for them, mainly Kripke.  Okay, now that that's out of the way, let's recap!
