The Resident 2×10 “After The Fall” literally started out with a sprint, and continued with intensity throughout the entire winter premiere.
I’ve applauded The Resident these past couple of episodes for finally figuring out its pacing and not overpacking the episodes with too much. Well, unfortunately I can’t give you that this week, The Resident fans.
In the mid-season finale 2×09 “The Dance”, the writers are trying to bring all of their storylines to a peak and by doing so, it feels forced and rather anti-climatic in some regards. When I sat down to gather my thoughts on the episode, I actually forgot about some of the storylines altogether because there was so much going on.
Whoa. Every week The Resident takes television to a whole other level and I cannot get enough. The episode is appropriately titled “Heart In A Box” and most of our beloved characters have put their hearts out there this week for our viewing pleasure.
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.
Halloween special episodes can be some of the best material and some of the worst for a TV series. For The Resident, the Halloween episode was done rather tastefully — some Halloween humor, costumes and a creepy nightmare mystery, but it was not too over the top.
“The Germ” took viewers on an emotional, tear-filled ride. I thought that The Resident had done a number on my feelings with the Lily storyline in season one, but I was wrong and completely mentally unprepared for this episode.
The Resident’s 2×04 “About Time” was a busy episode. Generally, I am not a big fan of stuffing as much plot into an episode as possible, but there was a lot here that was really worth the congestion. Other plot points (mostly to do with Julian and dresses), not so much.
