Monday, November 12 TV Review

For the sake of saving time I’m reviewing all the shows briefly in one post.

2 Broke Girls
And the Candy Manwich”

"And the Candy Manwich" was a fantastic episode of 2 Broke Girls. It was nice to see Max and Caroline leave the diner and have some time to further develop their friendship. Obviously the diner is key to the show being a sitcom but it’s always refreshing when they can get away from the diner and the cupcake business and have five seconds away from life. Everyone needs a break now and then, including the fans.

Andy was a great addition to the episode. I hope the writers handle Caroline and Andy’s relationship better than they did Johnny and Max’s. I wanted to root for Max and Johnny but the writing never supported it. First there was too little of Johnny, then a period with out him or any mention of him, then he was everywhere. It felt too haphazard. I’m really hoping Andy will be written with better care.

The jokes and humor this episode were also superior than past episodes. Nothing felt repetitive to me. I didn’t feel they were overusing any one joke/type of joke, there was a great amount of variety. And that, is what made it one of my favorites. 

Overall, a great episode, very enjoyable.

4.25/5

Hawaii Five 0
"I Ka Wa Mamua"

With Danno’s 100% guarantee how could this episode lose?

100% perfect from start to finish.

5/5

Revolution
Ties That Bind”“

Oh Revolution. You are that one show, I love and hate. The show I want to love and sometimes do, but then I remember you are utterly predictable and shallow.

Everyone knew Nora’s sister was taken and going to be used as bate based on the preview last week. I was concerned for about 2 seconds for her safety, but the minute they saved her, I began to suspect that there was so much more in play. They got away too easily for it to be anything less than an elaborate trap. Plus, let’s face it they’ve been writing one crazy dilemma after another just to delay our hero’s goals. (Although, that is the basis of story telling, I suppose. But I always like when stories, make it feel effortless rather than forced dilemmas).

While it was very predictable, I almost believed (aka I wanted to believe) that Nora might actually go with her sister and leave, but that was obviously never going to happen, I just hoped a lot it would. So now the question lies in when we will see Nora’s sister again, because you know it’s gonna happen. TV land doesn’t let stories end like they did tonight. Not when the characters have been through so much. Her sister will find redemption just as Miles has been doing. It’s just a matter of time.

On the good side, Miles did get to fight and that is always enjoyable. He still is the only character that has any dimensions and even then, there are times when his character falls flat too. Charlie on the other hand is utterly dead weight. She has so little personality it pains me.

3/5

The High Road

When Reese moves into the suburbs with Ms Zoe Morgan, the suit comes off (literally).

New house. New car. New clothes. New John? Well maybe not a new John. He seemed to struggle with the sedentary life of living in the suburbs. His discomfort in his polo shirts is perfect. I’m glad to know our favorite vigilante will not be hanging up his suits anytime soon.

The Children’s Crusade

I don’t know if Revolution is getting better of if I just lowered my standards and accepted it for what it is. I really did want to love this show, so the latter is quite possible. Either way, Revolution has become a weekly staple in my television viewing. I anxiously look forward to it week after week. Although I must admit about 75% of my interest is solely in Miles Matheson (Billy Burke). Then like 5% Aaron, 15% the actual story and 5% because JJ Abrams and Bad Robot.
