“Friends in Low Places”: Remind me, who is this Joel guy and why is he here? I can’t be the only one who is bothered by his appearance on the show. I mean really, he doesn’t fit, not in the cast not in Bluebell and thus, not in this show. Last nights episode was a compilation of Zoe trying to make Joel fall in love with Bluebell by babying him and taking him around showing him everything that is nice about Bluebell. Now if you ask me, he’s either going to like it or not. What the heck has happened to this show? The only good thing to come out of this is Lemon’s character which has grown a lot since the last season and Lavon and Annabeth are still together. Lavon’s cousin is obnoxious and annoying, Joel too and Zoe is no longer practicing medicine. Where is all the charm that was in this show last season? Because it seems to be losing it, and losing me in the process. Don’t know if I am going to bother to tune in next Monday. Disappointing. Mondays @ 8PM (EST) on CW.
Starring: Tom Mison, Nicole Beharie, Orlando Jones, Katia Winter, John Cho, Clancy Brown & Lyndie Greenwood
“John Doe”: This show just keeps getting better and better. This show is doing everything right when it decided to breathe life back into the spooky story of Sleepy Hollow and the Headless Horseman. This show is exhilarating, amazing and just too darn awesome! Last night we were introduced, or rather saw, the Horseman of Pestilence, also known as Conquest. In my opinion, I thought it was very clever that costume design decided to give him a costume looking like a Samurai. Think of Genghis Khan, he wasn’t a Samurai but rather a Mongolian, but the amount of conquest he did was amazing. Personally, I reiterate, I thought it was very clever. As far as the story went as well, it was also very good. It incorporated stories and mythology like Virginia Dare and the lost colony of Roanoke. This show is masterfully written and executed brilliantly. It’s an amazing thrill ride of show…why do I have to wait three weeks for a new episode! Mondays @ 9PM (EST) on FOX.
Starring: James Spader, Megan Boone, Harry Lennix, Diego Klattenhoff, Ryan Eggold, Parminder Nagra & Ilfenesh Hadera
“The Stewmaker”: They are the puppet and he is the puppeteer. They being the FBI and he being Reddington. I think I must have annoyed the heck out of my mom every time I said it. It is just such an apt statement. But I digress. Powerful episode. Lizzie was kidnapped last night and that really pissed Reddington off. Not only that, but there is something more to him than meets the eye. The Stewmaker took someone he cared about, that much is evident. But who, and why? Another mystery that lies under the table I guess. James Spader is masterful; he is amazing and a wonderful actor. Nothing about him is disappointing and this show as well. It doesn’t fail to disappoint at all. It’s thrilling, captivating and the mystery behind the show and the characters is brilliant. This is a can’t miss show this fall. Mondays @ 10PM (EST) on NBC.
