NCIS: Los Angeles: 7×24 – Talion

When Sam receives a distress code from his son Aiden that his school has been taken over by an extremist group, Sam, Callen, Kensi and Deeks rush to San Francisco to protect Aiden and free the hostages. For a show which contains my current favourite couple – Deeks/Kensi in case you couldn’t guess – I […]

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: 7×09 – Copper Bullet

I really enjoyed this episode.  I thought it was going to be all ‘high stakes’ and tense due to it being about Abbott’s secret but it turned out to be a rather lighthearted, old-style con.  Complete, with a lovely team moment at the end, and a chance for Jane to tell Lisbon what he is […]

The Mentalist: 7×07 – Little Yellow House

This season of The Mentalist has been awesome!  Usually once a couple gets together my interest wanes as I all about the build-up and UST but I’m loving Jane/Lisbon as a couple! And we finally got to meet two of Lisbon’s brothers and it was wonderful.  (As was the last scene

The Mentalist: 7×02 – The Greybar Hotel

Oh I so much love that Jane and Lisbon together now and I adore their teenage awkwardness around each other. Hurray for a centric-Lisbon episode and the chance for her to go undercover and Jane come riding to her rescue.  I only wish that they waited until further down the season to play this card […]

Criminal Minds: 7×23 – Hit & 7×24 – Run

OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG! I am nowhere near at the end of my season finale slog but I am pretty sure no other finale can top the Criminal Minds finale for sheer cuteness and shippiness.  Will/JJ, Morgan/Prentiss, Kevin/Garcia, Hotch/Beth, Rossi/Strauss – I THINK MY HEAD EXPLODED. OMG THE CUTENESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Will, JJ and Henry […]

Criminal Minds: 7×12 – Unknown Subject

Another Criminal Minds episode with an awesome case! Well deserving of the 150 episode spot. I loved the idea of the importance of piano ballads and a nice twist having one of the victims becoming the perp and torture and innocent guy, except, oh wait, is he innocent?! And the two perps angle came out […]

Criminal Minds: 7×04 – Painless

LOL!  This photo, as well as making me almost spit out my drink, reminds me that we still have a Strauss-plot thread outstanding.  Wonder when we’re going to find out what’s going on with her. When Prentiss was in Paris she played loads of online games of scrabble with JJ.  That is just Criminal Minds […]

Criminal Minds: 7×02 – Proof

(Seriously, how pretty is JJ here?!?!) JJ: Spence, we got to talk about this. Reid: Don’t want to talk about it. JJ: I get it, OK? You’re disappointed with the way we handled Emily. Reid: I have a lot going on, alright? JJ: You, you know what I think it is? You’re mad that Hotch […]

Criminal Minds: 7×01 – It Takes A Village

I can’t think of any other fandom which has canon so heavily influenced by external events.  The team used to keep each other at arms length with a few episodes of team bonding thrown in now and again and then this episode was all like GROUP HUG WE ARE A FAMILY, which is obviously how […]
