NCIS: Los Angeles: 8×24 – Uncaged

🌟🌟🌟🌟½  Following the kidnapping of Sam’s wife, Michelle Hanna, Sam goes rogue from the NCIS team and attempts to stop his arch nemesis Tahir Khaled from ever targeting his family again. So Michelle died.  And not in a heroic blaze of glory.  In a tortuously slow suffocating-in-a-metal-box-whilst-Sam-watched kind of way. Poor Sam.  Luckily for me, […]

Rewatch: Third Watch Season 1

1×01 – Bosco and his epic footchase. Love the retro background music and the medical/personal talk. Sully/Ty. I must have watched this episode a few times, it all seems very familiar. Mantooth the firehouse dog! The peanut butter prank Kim pulled on Carlos. “Think he’s pissed? I think he’s pissed.” Such a gripping Pilot, especially […]

The Mentalist: 7×13 – White Orchids

HOLY CRAP!!!  Most perfect series finale in the history of series finales (and I loved how it sort of went down the same route as The Newsroom – two perfect endings for two of my favourite shi ps!!).  I don’t even care that I was massively spoiled (I didn’t know about Vega’s death so I […]

The Mentalist: 6×22 – Blue Bird

“You’re right. I have forgotten how to act like a normal human being. And I play games and I lie and I trick people to avoid the truth of how I feel. And the idea of letting anyone close to me is terrifying for obvious reasons, but the truth, Teresa, is that I can’t imagine […]

NCIS: Los Angeles: 5×01 – Ascension

A fantastic resolution the the Season 4 finale.  Poor Deeks.  Some awesome Deeks/Kensi moments, especially at the end …..”The place I went to in my head to stop the pain was you.  I just kept thinking about your smile, and your laugh, everything, it’s the only thing that got me through for whatever it’s worth.”

Rewatch: The West Wing Season 2

2×01 – The President has been hit!  Gina 2×07 – I love Airforce One episodes!  CJ mocking Notredam and having to wear the hat!  Everyone looking out for Leo 2×08 – The turkeys!  CJ and the turkeys!  CJ AND THE TURKEYS!!! C.J.: They sent me two turkeys. The most photo-friendly of the two gets a […]

Rewatch: The West Wing Season 1

I was never won over by the Pilot.  The Newsroom and Studio 60‘s pilots captured my interest instantly but I remembered when I watched TWW the first time, it took me half a season to get into it properly. 1×01 – Best thing about the Pilot?  C.J.: Is there anything I can say other than […]

Rewatch: The Newsroom Season 1

I rewatched The Newsroom so have some completely random exclamations of love. I have got to say how perfect the Pilot is. The first scene between Mac and Jim when she is trying to orchestrate him flirting with Maggie …… the whole handling of the BP oil spill …. The instrumental score …… the end […]

Rewatch: ER Season 3

3.01 – It’s Hodges from CSI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Doug/Mark! “Are you suggesting you and I date?!” Kerry the admin monster! Carter’s getting a little uppity! Baseball! Awwh, Doug’s really into it! Love that fireworks moment. E-Ray the desk clerk! Mark/Carter/sparklers. 3.02 – The nurses wrestling with the woman on PCP! Mark/Susan’s blind dates. That moment where Mark […]

Rewatch: ER Season 2

Okay so when I marathoned the series the first time around, apparently I wasn’t too keen on Season 2 and deleted a lot of the episodes and only kept my favourites. 2.07 – Doug and the kids! Harper the medical student! Jerry’s “hi-tech” computer. LMAO. Modem? WOW. Cannabis lady! LOL! Carol playing computer games! Doug […]
