“Whack-a-Mole”: Why did they bring back Jackie (Mary Beth Peil) back? Her character really brings nothing to the show, in my personal opinion, but i guess that that brings in some tension considering her character is so…obnoxious I guess is as good a word as any. Now, Jason O’Mara guest stared in last night’s episode as the most obnoxious character there is. He is an alleged mob lawyer and steals the furniture of Florrick/Agos. He was simply annoying, rude and has questionable ethics. But, Florrick/Agos won the case in the end, but not after the writers once again put me through the ringer, pushing me to the edge of my seat as the law firms go head to head. This is one of the best drama’s on television. Sundays @ 9PM (EST) on CBS.
Genre: Police procedural, Comedy-drama

“Red John”: Another show that put me through the ringer. Red John is none other than Sherriff Thomas McAllister. My god that was good writing. It was amazing because they have us thinking it was one guy when it turned out to be another guy. That was just crazy, but heart pounding and gripping. This season has been incredibly slow and redundant as Jane continues to mull over which one of the suspects is Red John. But finally the mystery has come to a conclusion, it has been solved and the moment when Jane killed him, that was impactful. It started out fast, the race to Red John as the FBI hunt him down and track him to Red John, and then it slowed down, deliberately for those final moments. I mean, its finally over, the Red John story line is over and the conclusion was far from disappointing. The directing, acting and writing were amazing in this final episode. I wonder where they are going to go from here. Sundays @ 10PM (EST) on CBS.
