‘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…

‘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…

‘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,…

‘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…

‘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…

‘Pearson’ 1×06 Review: Same old, Same old

At some point, Pearson is going to have to make a choice. For me, right now, after “The Donor,” that choice is clear: Dump Bobby Novak. And I don’t even mean dump him completely as in fire the actor, he…

‘Pearson’ 1×05 Review: The Bobby Problem

Pearson has a Bobby problem, and though “The Former City Attorney” tries valiantly to face that problem head on, at the end of the day, we are left in the same place we were when we started watching the show…

‘Pearson’ 1×04 Review: Building on Something Good

For three episodes, we’ve sorta dangled on the edge of a precipice, ready to fall in love with Pearson completely and irrevocably. “The Deputy Mayor” does nothing to push us off the cliff, but it doesn’t exactly drag us back,…

‘Pearson’ 1×03 Review: This Could be the Beginning

…of a beautiful show. During the first two episodes, Pearson did a lot right, especially in setting up Jessica Pearson, as, well… Jessica Pearson, someone we should continue to care about. It didn’t give us many more people to care…

‘Pearson’ 1×02 Review: Now We’re Talking

Now, that’s more like it. “The Superintendent” isn’t necessarily a brilliant hour of television – no more so than the first episode, at least – but it does a whole lot better than the Pilot about making us care about…

‘Pearson’ 1×01 Review: It’s All About Gina

I have maintained a love/hate relationship with Suits for many, many years. I loved it at first, loved the characters, felt very connected to the environment. I hated it at times, too, hated how I felt like the plot was…
