“The Box” | Brooklyn Nine-Nine

It’s been another stellar week into Spring TV with a sweet episode of When Calls the Heart, a gorgeous display of marriage on Madam Secretary, a meme-filled hysterical half hour of Black-ish, a haunting episode of The Americans, and an incredibly relatable episode of Superstore. (Especially for those of us who are multi-lingual!) But from the moment this week’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine concluded, I knew it’d be the most exquisite thing I’d watch all week.

March 25-31 
“Hollywoodland” | Timeless

Timeless - Season 2

And now that The Americans is officially back — Spring TV is blossoming exceptionally. (We’re just waiting patiently for the new season of New Girl!) We kicked off with a hugely impactful episode of Madam Secretary, a sweet showcase of marriage on When Calls the Heart, an incredible episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, an exceptional episode of Black-ish, a frustrating, but simultaneously intriguing episode of Riverdale, and a hilarious half hour of Superstore. A Series of Unfortunate Events made its second season debut and we’re definitely intrigued because the first four episodes will be covering my favorite books. But much like everyone and their mothers, we’re still buzzing about NBC’s Timeless

“My Heart is Yours” | When Calls the Heart

Our hearts are soaring because most TV shows are back from hiatus and all is right in the world again. They kicked off Sunday with a brand new, hysterically moving episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, a remarkable hour of Timelessand the long anticipated When Calls the Heart. Tuesday met us with an incredible episode of Black-ish and Wednesday’s Riverdale was something, alright. Life Sentence continues to establish its place, and Superstore is driving us crazy in all the right ways. But you guessed it, we’re here to talk about When Calls the Heart and the wedding we’ve all been waiting for.

I wrote about Jack Thornton and Elizabeth Thatcher’s engagement through my tears, so even back then I knew that no matter what would air this week, I’d have to write about their wedding, too.

Hiatus is still in the air with award season coming to an end so there aren’t many TV series back on our screens, but that’s okay because no matter what we would’ve watched, this episode of Superstore would have still taken the crown. This is Us was great, too and naturally, When Calls the Heart always brings joy into my life, and while I’m personally still buzzing about Black PantherI can take a break from that for a moment to talk about how hyped I am about where Superstore’s headed. And most importantly, how thrilled I am that America Ferrera directed “Video Game Release.”

“Chapter Eighteen: When A Stranger Calls” | Riverdale 

Apologies on the absence from these reviews last week, folks, but we were out meeting the cast of Once Upon A Time at the Burbank Con. That’s the best reason, right? And while our brains are still wrapped up on the perfection of Stranger Things, TV has been a real treat this week starting with Outlander showing off the immense chemistry its stars have. Madam Secretary reminding us of the fact that the McCords are marriage goals. This is Us delivered a powerful episode on the importance of our choices. The Mayor continued establishing its characters in a hilarious matter, Black-ish dealt with parent/child relationships, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine gave us the glimpse into a darkness in Holt’s past. But it was Riverdale that sent viewers down the kind of roller coaster you can appreciate but never want to ride again.

“HalloVeen” | Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Another incredible week of television passed us by with an emotional episode of Madam Secretary, a powerful hour of This is Us, a hilarious episode of Black-ish, The Mayor continuing to build itself up wonderfully, Riverdale raising the stakes higher, and Superstore took on bullying in a genius manner. However, it was Brooklyn Nine-Nine that made me burst into the happiest tears multiple times at the airport. If anyone was wondering whether I was okay, the answer is more than. Continue reading

“Mother Nature” | Black-ish

Once again fall TV continues to be extraordinary with Outlander hitting us all right in the feels, Madam Secretary debuting its fourth season with an amazing premiere, Chesapeake Shores ending its second season in the loveliest way, This is Us with another emotional episode, Brooklyn Nine-Nine tackling vital issues while remaining hysterical, The Mayor continuing to be a real treat, Riverdale premiering with an epic episode, and Superstore once again being the absolute best. On Once Upon A Time we said our final goodbye to Emma Swan as we watched her get her happy ending with Killian and their new baby. But Black-ish took me by surprise when it tackled postpartum beautifully with an exquisitely powerful episode filled with inimitable performances.

A Season in Review: Chesapeake Shores

I appreciated Chesapeake Shores in its freshman year, but the show took an incredible turn this season making it that much more unforgettable and inimitable. Normally, while I’m under the belief that TV shows tend to flop in their second season making it the weakest one, Chesapeake Shores did the exact opposite, and I’m thankful for the team of writers who’ve chosen to tell stories through the eyes of the characters. I’ve always said that a TV show is much stronger when episodes are driven by the characters as opposed to the plot and in season two, we were given the chance to love the O’Brien clan even more than before as they told their realistic, encompassing stories through tremendous heart and innate growth.

It’s been a week of stellar premieres and enthralling episodes starting with Sunday’s remarkably sweet Chesapeake Shores, Tuesday’s premiere of Black-ish, the debut of The Mayor, another emotional episode of This is Usand Thursday’s incredible episode of Superstore. But it was Brooklyn Nine Nine’s second episode into the season that I can’t stop thinking about.

When 90% of the shows you watch are on hiatus in the summer, it’s series like Game of Thrones and Hallmark’s darling Chesapeake Shores that keep us sane. And though Chesapeake Shores has been superb lately, it’s Game of Thrones’ “Beyond the Wall” that we need to talk about.
