I Will Go Down With This Ship: Darvey Edition

Ships. In entertainment, and especially, in fandom, we live and die by them. Which is why every Friday, we’ll be focusing on a couple, analyzing why we ship them, and overall, just proclaiming our eternal love for those couples that…

‘Briarpatch’ 1×10 Review: “Felicity”

I’ll give Briarpatch 1×10 “Felicity” this, it really, really tries. It tries harder than any other episode of this show has tried. It just doesn’t deliver, mostly because there’s no payoff, there’s no emotional connection, there’s nothing. There are just…

‘Briarpatch’ 1×09 Review: “Game Theory and Mescaline”

Briarpatch 1×09 “Game Theory and Mescaline” stays more or less at the level of last episode, which was, by far, the best in the series – not that this distinction is very hard to earn. The problem is that it…

‘Briarpatch’ 1×08 Review: “Most Likely to Succeed”

To be honest, I’d been waiting for an episode like Briarpatch 1×08 “Most Likely to Succeed” since, well, since Briarpatch first started. There are many things the show set up that they could have developed better, none more important than…

‘Briarpatch’ 1×07 Review: “Butterscotch”

Whatever it is I’ve been waiting for as Briarpatch gets closer to the end of the season, Briarpatch 1×07 “Butterscotch” doesn’t deliver. In fact, it doesn’t even come close. Instead, even as this show gives us some answers, it continues…

‘Briarpatch’ 1×06 Review: “The Most Sinful Mf-er Alive”

The more Briarpatch I watch, the more it’s supposed to make sense. Except, the more Briapatch I watch, the least sense the ways they’re trying to make it all make sense end up actually, you know, making sense. That’s pretty…

‘Briarpatch’ 1×05 Review: “Behind God’s Back”

I wish I could say Briarpatch was getting better, but Briarpatch 1×05 “Behind God’s Back” is just more of the same confusing, wannabe edgy narrative that makes it very, very hard to actually connect to anyone. At least till the…

‘Briarpatch’ 1×04 Review: “Breadknife Weather”

Briarpatch 1×04 “Breadknife Weather” is the same brand of confusing as the last episode, as the show itself has become. Something is supposedly going on – many somethings. People are crooked, some extra crooked, but not Allegra, no. She’s the…

‘Briarpatch’ 1×03 Review: “Terrible, Awful, Shocking Things”

I will admit three episodes into Briarpatch, I’m disappointed. Why am I watching? Why did I think this was worth my time? What in the world is going on in Briarpatch 1×03 “Terrible, Awful, Shocking Things.” I got no answer…

‘Briarpatch’ 1×02 Review: What’s This About Again?

Briatpatch’s second episode, entitled “Snap, Crackle, Pop” is more confusing and less interesting than “First Time in Saint Disgrace” – at least, until the final few moments. But how am I stop watching now when the show ended like that?…

‘Briarpatch’ 1×01 Review: Where’s The Tiger?

I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect from Briarpatch’s pilot, officially titled “First Time in Saint Disgrace,” or from the series in general. What I do know is I didn’t expect this episode to revolve around escaped zoo animals. What…

Decade Roundtable: Our Best Ships Of The Decade

Ships. We live and die by them. Ships are amazing and teach us so much about relationships. They teach us about love and life. Our ships of the decade, are mostly – well all around television. We love so many…

‘Pearson’ Cancelled at USA And We’re Angry

 The hits just keep on coming. This time, with Pearson. We’ll be the first to say the first season of Pearson was uneven – too much Bobby Novak at times, too much setup in general – but the show, like…

‘Suits’ Series Finale Review: That Was When I Ruled the World

One last con indeed. In the end, the most revolutionary thing Suits did, the most groundbreaking, and the most radical, was give us not just the ending we wanted, but the ending we deserved. Let’s call a spade a spade:…

‘Pearson’ 1×10 Review: I’m Done Being Your Errand Girl

Pearson ends season one in a supremely high SEE OMG WHAT IS JUST HAPPENING WAIT DID IT END THERE note, with an episode aptly titled “The Fixer,” and let me start this review by taking a moment to say: I…

‘Suits’ 9×09 Review: The Beginning of the End

“Thunder Away” isn’t really a stand-alone episode, so it’s hard to think of it as such, or review it as if it were just one story-line with a clear beginning, middle, and end. “Thunder Away” is the beginning of the…

‘Pearson’ 1×09 Review: How to Change the World

As Pearson’s “The Rival” so clearly showed us, it’s awfully hard to change the world. In fact, sometimes, it feels almost impossible. Especially coming from the place Angela is coming from, a place of being beaten down so many times,…

‘Suits’ 9×08 Review: Life Comes at You Fast

This was a hard episode of Suits to watch, and an even harder one to review. There was, of course, the tension of a very well executed story-line, as “Prisoner’s dilemma” brought us back to Mike’s time in jail, and…

‘Pearson’ 1×08 Review: Why Representation Matters

I’ve talked about this subject plenty of times before. Some of you might say I’ve talked about this subject too many times, that I need to find a new soapbox, and if you’re one of those, then I’m sorry, because…

‘Suits’ 9×07 Review: Who We Are

Suits goes deep into the question of who exactly Harvey, Samantha and even Louis are, as “Scenic Route” moves the show along the path to a conclusion we’re not exactly sure we want anymore. But then again, they always say…

‘Pearson’ 1×07 Review: The Biggest, Baddest Operator Around

Pearson turns a definite corner in “The Immigration Lawyer,” not in regards to Jessica – the only part of the show that’s always worked – or even in regards to other characters, who sometimes work by themselves, but almost always…
