NCIS Season 8, Episode 21 ‘Dead Reflection’ In last week’s episode of NCIS, we were introduced to the Port-to-Port killer and the episode ended with Tony finding an eyeball in his drink. I was hoping, although not necessarily expecting, that this episode would continue with that plot, but instead it returned to a stand-alone episode …

NCIS Season 8, Episode 20 ‘Two-Faced’ One slightly strange thing about this season so far is that there hasn’t been any real overarching plot, excluding character plots of course. That was remedied this week as we were introduced to what appears to be this season’s ‘Big Bad’, a serial killer who kills from port to …

NCIS Season 8, Episode 19 ‘Tell-All’ Despite being generally enjoyable episodes, I have to say that I haven’t been blown away by the recent stream of NCIS episodes, and that continued here. They are all good, solid, exciting episodes, but none of them have really done anything particularly special for me. I think perhaps the …

NCIS: Los Angeles Season 3, Episode 24 ‘Sans Voir, Part 2’ Season 3 of NCIS: Los Angeles certainly came to an explosive close this week, as the team had to deal with the consequences of the Chameleon’s actions in this and the previous episode. Last week he was responsible for the deaths of Agents Renko …

Alcatraz Season 1, Episode 13 ‘Tommy Madsen’ And so Alcatraz comes to an end. I can’t say that I’m especially devastated by this show’s cancellation; there were much better shows than this in previous years which were cancelled prematurely, and for all I know this show’s fate had to occur for Fringe to get a …

Alcatraz Season 1, Episode 12 ‘Garrett Stillman’ Now that Lucy has woken up and re-joined the team, Alcatraz has finally started to make some progress towards the overall mystery and the main characters’ understanding of it. Unfortunately, with only one episode to go, it is too little too late and, while a step in the …

Alcatraz Season 1, Episode 11 ‘Webb Porter’ Well, finally. This week’s episode of Alcatraz finally started to make some progress on the several plotlines it’s got going on. Unsurprisingly we still didn’t get any answers but now that Lucy’s awake, and everybody knows about her, hopefully some may be forthcoming. I was watching this entire …

Alcatraz Season 1, Episode 10 ‘Clarence Montgomery’ This episode is, in my opinion, fairly illustrative of why this show was cancelled. The problem is that all it seemed to do was pose more questions without even hinting at any answers. This sounds like a strange criticism when I am such a big fan of LOST …

Alcatraz Season 1, Episode 9 ‘Sonny Burnett’ This week’s episode of Alcatraz was another good one, although I didn’t find the flashbacks particularly interesting here. They were basically showing how Burnett had to toughen up in order to survive on Alcatraz, and to be honest I don’t think we really needed so much time devoted …
