30 Rock review – 7×03: ‘Stride of Pride’

One week after Liz (Tina Fey) discovers the orgasmic pleasure of filing, and suddenly she’s a regular Carrie Bradshaw. This season keeps pushing our characters further than they’ve been before and it’s taking the series to new heights.

Grimm review – 2×08: ‘The Other Side’

Grimm sticks with its traditional case of the week formula, filtering in just enough interesting mythology tidbits to make the episode worthwhile. I see a formula emerging…

Elementary review – 1×03: “Child Predator”

Elementary returns after a week’s break with a slight deviation from the episodic formula it established in its first two episodes. Is the show finding its legs and exploring new boundaries, or is it quickly falling into a rut of formulaic tediousness?

Parks and Recreation review – 5×04: ‘Sex Education’

Another solid outing from our fellow Pawneeans, or as Perd Hapley would prefer we call them, ‘Perdverts’. However, there are signs that the series may have hit a rough patch creatively now that we’ve seen the same conflict for the past three episodes.

Tensions rise aboard the Colorado as events from the last few episodes, including last week’s hostage situation and the lingering mutinous feelings of the crew, come to the forefront and nearly turn into an explosive situation.

The Vampire Diaries review – 4×02: ‘Memorial’

Well, that’s a relief. After a disappointing season opener, The Vampire Diaries’ second episode is everything I could have asked for and more. I spent a week afraid that my beloved show had lost its magic (pardon the pun). But with cliffhangers, the return of a favourite character, and the love triangle back in action, the show has found its footing again.

American Horror Story: Asylum review – 2×01: ‘Welcome to Briarcliff’

Well rip off my arm and slap my tushy, American Horror Story is back with a brand new (standalone) season, subtitled Asylum. As we meet the familiar faces in new roles, it’s clear that creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk and writer Tim Minear are still throwing everything they have at the screen in the hopes something sticks.

Nashville review – 1×02: ‘I Can’t Help It (If I’m Still in Love with You)’

Frankly, last week’s premiere of Nashville had me a little worried that it was too cluttered. But my faith is restored when this week’s episode starts off strong and has enough good stuff that I get reeled-in before the first commercial.

Modern Family review – 4×04: ‘The Butler’s Escape’

The  family is definitely still in adjustment mode four episodes into the fourth season thanks to all the changes that have been introduced. Also, is it just me or does Lily (Aubrey Anderson-Emmons) continue to age at a speed just shy of the speed with which Gloria went from zero to full bloom? Not that I’m complaining, because this episode showed me that Lily is going to be one sassy-four year old thanks to Miss Anderson-Emmons budding comedy skills.

Arrow review – 1×02: ‘Honor Thy Father’

Courtesy of The CW

Pilots are glossy, shiny and new. Last week’s pilot for Arrow, The CW’s biggest hit in years, was all of those things. But the truth is in the second episode – it’s when the characters get fleshed out, the budget comes down to normal levels and the series begins to figure out what the week-to-week will look like. So where does that leave Arrow?
