This Week’s Most Exquisite TV Moment

November 5-11
“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 

blackish

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.

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.

“Wine Dark Sea” | Prison Break 

Another incredible week of television concluded with Once Upon A Time’s gorgeous season finale marking the end of a chapter. Madam Secretary reminded its viewers that it isn’t scared of being raw, truthful, and accepting of human rights. Brooklyn Nine-Nine gave us two more hysterical episodes, which also beautifully showcased friendship. The Americans completely changed gear with an unexpected confession from Elizabeth. And Chicago P.D.’s finale left us with a number of questions but fantastic moments to remember. However, as I expected in my anticipation for this episode, Prison Break’s “Wine Dark Sea” gave us the perfect Michael and Sara reunion.

“The Song in Your Heart” | Once Upon A Time

Another excellent week of television brings us closer to the end of a season. Madam Secretary gave us the lovely of reminder of how much adoration runs through the team’s veins. Prison Break brought us one step closer to the reunion we’ve all been waiting for. Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s back to back episodes served as the best showcase of strong friendships and the power of team work. The Americans gave us unexpected, beautifully moving moment between Philip and Elizabeth. Chicago P.D. was heartbreakingly solid. And Black-ish’s season one finale was the icing on top of an amazing cake. But naturally, where there’s a wedding, our hearts will automatically follow, and Once Upon A Time’s “The Song in Your Heart” gave us an impeccable, happy beginning.  Continue reading

We went into another fantastic week of television with an emotional episode of Once Upon A TimeAn intriguing hour of Madam Secretary. The Americans allowing us to see into the life of a character we’ve missed. Prison Break’s escape. Chicago P.D.‘s riveting hour of exceptional story telling. Black-ish presenting us with the fantastic spin-off Pilot that’d follow Zoey into college.
