The Glades: Lost and Found

Another great episode from The Glades. This one ushers in the new dynamic between Jim and Callie as crime solving partners. A dynamic i was a little worried about at first, but think they played it right and it works. I was fearful they were going to make her a crime solving deity and Jim was going to get dumb overnight but it wasn't like that at all. Jim was still the crime solver, Callie was still the empathic nurse. Which is exactly what i wanted, heres to hoping they don't screw it up anytime soon. -AiO

The Nine Lives of Chloe King

I really like this show and its premiere, it was fast paced enough to keep you entertained but still gave you the base premise of the show. Show starts off with Chloe being chased up a tower and then pushed off to her death. Then we jump back 2 days, don't you just love it when they do that? Ugh. Chloe's powers include retractable claws somewhat like a cat, landing on her feet from decent heights like a cat, good balance like a cat, able to jump pretty high like a cat, if you don't get it by now.... Shes like a cat. ;) Overall its a decent show with some serious promise just need a little more depth to the characters and were good to go. -AiO

Covert Affairs: Good Advices

So yeah i fell asleep a little more than half way in, but it wasn't the shows fault i was just damn tired. Woke up late, had just enough time to re-watch it all the way through before work.

I rather enjoyed this episode, Auggie gets left in charge and has to make some hard decisions. Annie has a birthday and goes to Paris. Joan gets Jury duty, which she then uses her Job to get out of when she finds out that its going to be 3+ weeks damn! Was hoping for more Auggie in charge. All in all good episode.

P.S. I dislike how naive Annie is still, but its also one of the best things about her. So even though i cringe every-time she gets played i don't think the show would be as good if she didn't. -AiO

The Glades: Old Ghosts

I enjoyed this episode alot, even though the addition of Detective Samantha Harper will further hinder the relationship of Jim and Callie. They couldn't just give us what we want right now could they? Of course not they want to make sure we keep watching. ^.^ That aside this episode had plenty of twists on the love and criminal side. I mean seriously who thought it was the pool guy at the beginning of the episode! -AiO

Teen Wolf

Okay i wanted to get this review out 3 days ago but some crap came up with a family friend and it put me behind. All is good now so here we go.
The Teen Wolf series on MTV isn't half bad, sure its a pretty predictable teen drama but they seem to be pushing a bit into the lore of werewolves as well which i enjoy. I intend to keep watching until they turn the cheese factor to 11 then I'll drop it.

So the show is pretty simple, boy turned to werewolf, boy loves new girl, new girl's dad hunts werewolves, boy plays a sport but not well until he gets turned, boy plays well now but risks exposing himself as a wolf, jealous players have it out for boy, older wolf tries to warn boy not to play, boy ignores and does it anyways bla bla bla. It goes on with all the things you'd expect from a teen drama. Which is good if that's what you're looking for. -AiO

Covert Affairs Season 2 Premiere

Covert Affairs Season 2!! Overall the episode was good, but not what i expect from a premiere. I really expect a premiere (season or series) to entice me, make me anxious for the next episode this did not. Will i watch the next episode, sure but not because of this episode because i loved the first season.

There was a dangle of oooh Ben's ok and back with Annie and the CIA, until they rip that away oooh didn't see that coming. There was Annie and her intuition that gets her into "trouble" with Joan, but Annie was right and a bad lady that couldn't shoot Annie if you tied her to a pole and taped the gun to her head gave chase. Best part of this episode was Auggie the suave blind bad-ass. -AiO

Game of Thrones: The Pointy End

This episode appeared to move slower than past episodes, sure there was plenty of developments but its all stuff we expected to see. Whitewalkers "confirmed" Retaliation from the north, Lannisters manipulating Sansa, Tyrion promising more people more stuff to save his life. All crap we've(or I) came to expect from the characters and show. Was a little amused at Arya's first blood, and the Khal's fight scene but again its all what I've come to expect out of the show. Hopefully next episode will have some surprises in store or else it just going to be a show of tits, blood, and predictable stories. -AiO

The Glades Season 2

The Glades season 2 premiere was everything i came to expect from this crime drama. Which is exactly what i wanted to see. A good combination of comedy, mystery, drama, and explosions. =) Looking forward to the rest of this season. A+ A&E and A+ cast and crew. Catch new episodes of The Glades on A&E Sundays 10pm EST. -AIO

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

I found this movie to be wholly unfunny and boring. Sure there were a few times where i would crack a smile, but never a serious laugh. Well, not true after sitting through 2 hours of humorless drivel there lied a morsel of comedy. Now i understand this isn't exactly put out as a comedy, its Action/Adventure blah blah. With the prior 3 there was a good balance of that with plenty of comedy tossed about. In this film it just lacked that comedic edge and just went Action/Adventure. -AIO

P.S. I'm looking for movie/tv show recommendations to watch and review. So please comment with your current or past favorites.
