I’m sure by now you have come up with a list of reasons why you can’t watch every show. No time, no interest, and no access are all valid excuses for being behind on all those water cooler moments you’ve missed out on. When it comes to the show Big Little Lies, I fear your […]

Can you ever really love something after feeling betrayed by it? That’s the big question I have for my obviously privileged life: I feel betrayed by a television show. It’s been two seasons since the beloved Dr. Derek Shepherd died in an ironic fashion – a head injury only he could heal. Which, if I’m […]

You’re probably not watching, because it’s on the CW and, despite the boost in programming over the last few years, you still see the CW as teen fare. You’re absolutely right in the sense that Riverdale has the overly sexualized “teens” and the melodrama of highschool but this show is so much more. It’s a […]

Another summer over means another half season of Suits also coming to an end. And while my summer has been great, season 6A of Suits has stunk more than the streets of Toronto it films on after garbage day. Look, I love Suits as much at the next proud Toronto resident whose claim to fame […]

The worst time of year for me will always be Finale Season because all my shows are leaving me for at least four months. To make it worse, it coincides with summer, which most people enjoy, but without my shows, I run out of excuses to stay inside indefinitely. Hitting me particularly hard this year […]

Halfway through the forth season of Chicago Fire I find myself wondering what I’m missing. Where did the Gabby baby storyline go? Why is Chili being a raging bitch? I’d like to chalk it up to my inability to watch a show without simultaneously playing Candy Crush on my phone, but unfortunately, I believe the […]

Six years in the making, the moment we have all been waiting for is finally less than a week away. The big A reveal on Pretty Little Liars will finally happen on Tuesday August 11th. Maybe you’ve had other things to do (perhaps living your life?) but if you’re anything like me, you’re anxiously waiting […]

Jane the Virgin wrapped up its freshman season this week with a one, two, three… actually, I’ve lost count of how many twists ended up in “Chapter Twenty-Two.” Despite its less-than-strategic title, this show is one of the greats, with the finale making me cry, laugh, and say “Noooooo” aloud more than once. So, like […]

Well, Revenge finished up its four-season long run this week, and the finale, like the rest of the show, was…mediocre. I hate to sound like every other person on the Internet that has ever watched Revenge, but it’s true – Revenge was fantastic in its first season and lost its spark in subsequent seasons. While […]

Who would have guessed the premiere I looked forward to most this season would be on the CW? Okay, that probably wouldn’t have been too difficult since anything with strong female leads and good-looking boys is kind of my thing. But beyond these important factors, the premiere of The 100 was so anticipated because of […]

It may not have a great title, or even a great premise, but Bad Judge is off to a good start. The new sitcom follows Judge Rebecca Wright, played by Kate Walsh, as she balances work and binge drinking. It sounds ridiculous, thinking that a well-respected judge could also live a lifestyle similar to those […]

While we’re all still groaning over what happened to the Mother, her portrayer, Cristin Milotti, has moved on to find love with the guy across the building from her. While Zelda is a completely different character than Tracey, this rom-com once again introduces a mystery. The show is narrated by Katey Sagal, who tells us […]

Suits continued season four in the much the same way it did season three: a half season long arc, resolved before the midseason finale, followed by Louis discovering the truth about Mike. It’s always a surprise though. The show digs itself into the deepest of holes, leaving us to wonder how it could possibly climb […]

Remember the song “Why Can’t We Be friends?” I feel as though the characters on Suits should give it a good old listen. Maybe just the chorus though, those verses don’t make any sense. I all seriousness, Suits got all kinds of serious in “Leveraged.”  The most recent episode had all our favourite boys scrambling […]

After four seasons of mystery and deception, the season five premier of Pretty Little Liars breathed new life into the show, while simultaneously taking the life of another. After being renewed for a sixth and seventh season, the show proved that it could answer the questions that have been dragging on while still asking even […]

If you’re a fan of Revenge, you probably already knew that the show was renewed for a forth season late last week. You also know that the finale aired last Sunday, which means there was only three days between the renewal notice and the season finale airing. Not nearly enough time for the writers to […]

I look forward to watching Chicago Fire every week, and when it’s not on I’m sad about having a little less ChiFi in my life. I always know I am going to get a great episode, and storylines I haven’t seen anywhere else, mostly because I’ve never watched another show about firefighters. In “Until Your […]

How I Met Your Mother finally ended its nine-year run this week with an hour finale that makes you appreciate Dexter’s and Seinfeld’s a little more. Okay, not that much, but after nine years, and a whole season of a wedding, did anyone else feel cheated? Maybe it’s because people have accurately predicted the ending […]

Well, the Kat is out of the bag. The bag here being Elena’s body and the joke being not funny when I have to explain it. But alas, Katherine Pierce is Elena Gilbert no longer. Which is too bad, really, Katherine was always more fun and exciting a character than Elena. Not quite sure how […]

The greatest thing about Shameless is that the first three minutes of the show are edgier than anything else on television right now. Instead of the typical “Last time on…” Shameless sasses its viewers for not being around last week, and after a review of the clips it plays the theme song. Now, if you […]

Recently, my media professor said that we were in the “Age of television.” He said the 70’s had the movies, the 90’s had hip-hop and we have TV. Then he said that Friends was the worst television show ever and that’s what I tuned out and don’t know what happened in the rest of the […]

Community is back to its comedic roots, but not without some key losses along the way. Last season, we lost Pierce (Chevy Chase) and this season, Pierce died and took his former roommate Troy (Donald Glover) with him. Not literally with him since Troy’s till alive and all, but Pierce’s will offered him an opportunity […]

If it weren’t for the CW, I would still be so narrow minded as to think that doctors actually did any work. Thank goodness Hart of Dixie breaks down barriers and shows us things other than Dr. Brick Breeland recommending popsicles as a solution to hot soup. And who needs the main character to represent […]

Of all the shows that walk the fine line of will-it-or-won’t-it get cancelled, Community is the one I’ll never understand. It’s about as smart a comedy as we get these days, and the lack of acclaim confuses me more than Nicolas Cage’s morality confuses Abed. It suffered from losing it’s vision along with creator Dan […]

Recently, my roommates and I were discussing our Sunday night television shows. We all felt the need to clarify that they were guilty pleasures, but were also really good. But obviously only to us, and a handful of moms. For me, it’s Revenge. It’s not a fantastic show, and the actors take themselves way too […]

Mid-season finale time is probably the best time for television; the show ends explosively, but the viewers need not wait four long, agonizing months to find out what happened. We only need to wait one or two long, agonizing months! Grey’s Anatomy is known for being great at finales. Remember when Mer stuck her hand […]
