This one is a bit of a puzzler. I've seen really good reactions to it, really bad reactions to it, and absolute indifference. I suppose that's better than the polarized nature of the "Others arc", which seems to be greatly appreciated or greatly despised. I think my own reaction was somewhat muted. I liked it, it was fun, but it wasn't nearly...

HEROES 1.17: "Company Man"

Considering all the comparisons, it's neat to see "Heroes" attempt its own version of "Lost". This definitely fit the classic "Lost" mold in terms of format, and this should finally give a true basis of comparison. Can "Heroes" succeed in the same kind of narrative territory that has made "Lost" so unique? And can "Heroes" retain its flavor in...

I have to thank all the people who replied to my review for the previous episode. There were a lot of common opinions regarding the current state of play for "24" and where things have gone off the rails a bit. I think a lot of the same problems plague this episode. In particular, there was one massive question that I wanted answered, and it...

PRISON BREAK 2.18: "Wash"

The resolution phase of this season's arc is just full of surprises. The past few episodes have been a lot of fun, as plot threads continue to collapse back into the main story in surprising ways, and character fates continue to be unpredictable. At this point, it's not hard to see how the various plot threads are going...

BATTLESTAR: GALACTICA 3.16: "Dirty Hands"

Over the past two seasons, one of my main comments on "Galactica" was the somewhat shallow exploration of the day-to-day struggles for survival. There were the broad actions involving the Cylons and the issues explored on New Caprica, but the situations within the Colonial Fleet as a whole were either vague or ham-fisted in nature. The Colonials seemed to...

It takes a lot to leave me stunned into something resembling silence. It took me forever to pull my many thoughts on this episode into a relatively coherent analysis. Even after a couple pages of working out my frustrations, I'm not sure that I've completely pinned down my dislike for this episode. I guess I'm still trying to figure out just what...

HEROES 1.16: "Unexpected"

Right off the bat, we meet the newest addition to the superhuman gang: Hana. Hana is more than happy to use Ted the Nuclear Man as a weapon against Mr. Bennett's organization, which serves to bring him back into the story at just the right time. Matt continues to struggle with his personal predicament, caught between wanting to do what...

STUDIO 60 1.16: "4AM Miracle"

The drop-off from Tom Schlamme's directorial effort last week is evident from the very first frame. This is "Studio 60" back to the usual grind, and it's simply not as compelling. It doesn't help that the episode feels scattershot and disconnected. A number of plot threads are explored in the episode, but there's never a...

PRISON BREAK 2.17: "Bad Blood"

The race to the season finale is on, and the writers are definitely stepping up to the plate. Though many of the developments are generally proceeding as predicted, the details continue to be surprising. Anything that promises to bring the disparate threads of the season together in a logical manner is welcome, after all, and this episode continues that...

BATTLESTAR: GALACTICA 3.15: "A Day in the Life"

As of the writing of this review, "Battlestar: Galactica" has been renewed for a fourth season. The number of episodes for the fourth season seems to be unclear; David Eick has indicated that it will be 13 to 22, with the final number under negotiation with Sci-Fi Channel. The slump in ratings, largely due to the...

SUPERNATURAL 2.15: "Tall Tales"

If previous episodes haven't made the connections between "X-Files" and "Supernatural" abundantly clear, this installment should seal the deal. This episode is basically the "Supernatural" version of "Bad Blood", one of the best comedic episodes of "X-Files" and one of the most beloved in the entire nine season run. Or perhaps it would be more appropriate to point back...

SMALLVILLE 6.15: "Freak"

It was hard not to notice that the pacing in this episode was far more frantic than usual. At first, it was a little annoying, since the writers seemed to be rushing past some of the story details. Before long, it began to make sense. The pace added to the tension within the story, which was already palpable and well-developed. I...
