Scandal: The Key

But Daddy, why won't Jake call me back? *pout*
“I didn’t kill your son!”

My new Scandalometer scientifically measures every episode on two different metrics: how good the episode is and how much the episode annoys me. This episode was actually very good and pissed me off slightly less than usual. So bravo, Scandal.

Supernatural: Girls, Girls, Girls

Sam: "It's like a Penthouse letter."
Dean: "Is that bad?"

What a sad, introspective little episode.

Person of Interest: The Devil You Know

“Guess the young lion’s looking to be king.”

I feel like I should apologize for what this review turned into. But I’m sort of not sorry.

Sleepy Hollow: Magnum Opus

"It is through your eyes that I see myself most clearly."

Most of this episode featured my favorite thing about this series, which is Ichabod and Abbie working on a supernatural quest together like the adorable pair of romantic subtexty Witnesses that they are.

The Walking Dead: Crossed

Carl: “You can’t stay in one place anymore. Not for too long. And once you’re out there, you’re going to find trouble you can’t hide from. You’re going to need to learn how to fight.”

The momentum is building toward the midseason finale next week and so far I'm enjoying the ride.

Once Upon a Time: Smash the Mirror (1 & 2)

“Sometimes people surprise you.”

I thought doubling this episode up was more for scheduling reasons that creative ones, but whatever the logic behind it they fit together incredibly well.

Vampire Diaries: Fade Into You

“I saw that from a mile away, and my brain’s made of cotton.”

After weeks of hints about a powerful and ominous coven in Oregon, we finally got confirmation that a few of our regular characters are Geminis—and that their coven has even darker secrets than we may have realized.

Doux News: November 23, 2014

This group probably looks weird if you never watched
Highlander, but trust me, it was from a pretty cool episode.
This week: Highlander lives forever -- Bad news first -- And the good news -- This week in casts -- This week in cats

Star Trek The Next Generation: Symbiosis

Picard: “Beverly, the Prime Directive is not just a set of rules. It’s a philosophy and a very correct one. History has proved again and again that whenever mankind interferes with a less-developed civilization, no matter how well intentioned that interference may be, the results are invariably disastrous.”

In which Picard faces an ethical dilemma and Riker is electrocuted by a desperate junkie.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part One

Unrelentingly bleak, brutal and somber, this first part of the final installment of the Hunger Games series benefits from a larger budget, an amazing cast, and a good director, but suffers from the lack of a real ending.
