The Good Doctor 2×07 Review: “Hubert”

The Good Doctor walked the path of what we’ll do for the people we care about — even if it means one of the most awkward requests in the world. “Hubert” touched on the importance of keeping a goldfish, what one will risk for a pain in the butt family member, and the unsaid things are loudest when we are holding back.

Van Helsing 3×06 Review: Life and Death Confessions

This week’s Van Helsing picks up just a few hours after we left off in “Pretty Noose”. “Like Suicide” felt like a straight up continuation of the events we watched last week, and both episodes could have easily been a two-parter special, instead of leaving us hanging for a week. After all, the last time we saw our heroes, Axel had been taken by the B’ah and Scarlett’s life was hanging by a thread after being poisoned.

THE GOOD DOCTOR – “Two-Ply (or Not Two-Ply)” – Morgan and Shaun’s indecision on how to treat a young violinist who visits the ER with an infected finger could affect her future in more ways than one. Meanwhile, Lim, Claire and Park can’t figure out if their young patient is really ill or looking for attention on “The Good Doctor,” MONDAY, NOV. 5 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EST), on The ABC Television Network.

The Good Doctor 2×06 Review: “Two-Ply (or Not Two-Ply)”

The Good Doctor has not shied away from some strange medical conditions in the past, but even I didn’t see the Lego diagnosis coming in “Two-Play (or Not Two-Ply).” Talk about an hour focusing on the details versus the big picture — or, in some cases, the symptoms versus the patient.

Yes, “Two-Ply (or Not Two-Ply)” really does refer to toilet paper. Oh, the quirkiness. Since this was a character packed episode, I’ll be breaking it down by characters over what proved to be a surprising episode for one doctor whose heart grew a couple sizes tonight.

Van Helsing 3×05 Review: Alliances, Relationships and New Beginnings

We made it to Denver! We made it to San Francisco! Our crew has split up and each group has finally made it to their intended destination in “Pretty Noose”, even though things didn’t quite go according to plan for everyone. Last week’s episode was more about laying the ground work for the rest of the season, and I have to say — knowing what’s coming next — they did an exceptional job.

Blue Bloods 9x06 Review: Can Jamko Find Work-Life Balance?

Blue Bloods 9×06 Review: Can Jamko Find Work-Life Balance?

I love how Blue Bloods manages to stay so relevant. This could very easily become a show that doesn’t adjust with the times. It has a solid audience that will always come back, mostly for Tom Selleck, Donnie Wahlberg and Jamko, so the writers could decide that’s enough and play it safe with standard procedural storylines. But they don’t. They continue to explore topics like diversity, sexism and the ramifications of public opinion; and they always do it with class and intelligence.

The Resident 2×07 “Trial and Error”: Devon’s Undoing

I have to admit that I worried about this season of The Resident. Last year, I quickly became addicted to the show, but there were some less exciting episodes in the first season that made me begin questioning whether or not the series was going to end up with a second season. Unfortunately, in the times of cancelling shows like it’s nothing, it’s really difficult to become emotionally attached. The Resident proved me wrong this season. Seven episodes in, and it’s only getting better.
