Season Finale (Part Two) — Warehouse 13, “Reset”

A busy premiere week means lots of series to post about, so unfortunately, I did not get to Warehouse 13's season finale until earlier today. It seems I always forget about the series, but no matter what, it's always an enjoyable hour of television and actually fairly potent as the second half of the finale. … Continue reading Season Finale (Part Two) — Warehouse 13, “Reset”

Mad Men, “The Beautiful Girls”

The world of '50s and '60s advertising is certainly a boys club, and although things have been changing, particularly for Peggy, "The Beautiful Girls" goes a long way in suggesting that despite the advancements out in the world, the women of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce are still being held down, either professionally or personally. A … Continue reading Mad Men, “The Beautiful Girls”

Season Finale (Part One) — Warehouse 13, “Buried”

You know, kind of how the series has done to us over the summer. That said, … Continue reading Season finale — Covert Affairs, “I Can’t Quit You, Baby” and “When the Levee Breaks”

Rubicon, “The Truth Will Out”

I know I've been singing Rubicon's praises in recent posts, but Sunday's effort, "The Truth Will Out" is most certainly the finest episode the ever-improving series has done thus far. We already know that Rubicon can craft an atmosphere of intrigue, suffocation and confusion, but this episode takes all those elements to another level by … Continue reading Rubicon, “The Truth Will Out”

Summer Finale — White Collar, “Point Blank”

White Collar's second season has been fantastic from start to finish, but I found myself dreading the summer finale anyway. Why you ask? USA cliffhanger dread, of course. I've discussed ad nauseam my issues with how USA series organize their arcs and right after that post, Burn Notice turned in a mid-season finale that proved … Continue reading Summer Finale — White Collar, “Point Blank”
