Blue Bloods 9×22: Jamie and Eddie Tie the Knot

First let me say: All of my nerves leading up to the Blue Bloods finale were for nothing. I am so used to shows going for shock value during a finale that I expected that from Blue Bloods, too. Last season’s ender was happy, so I assumed it would be asking too much to have two in a row that ended with blissful Jamko shipping milestones. I was totally wrong.

Blue Bloods gave us happiness for the entire finale. Well, for me, anyway. I did notice on the night of that there was a bit of outrage on the twittersphere.

We’ll for sure dive into that later. For now, let’s talk about the episode.

LUCIFER season 4: What's More Powerful Than The Devil? Tom Ellis as Lucifer

Lucifer Season 4: What’s More Powerful Than The Devil?

If you’d asked me a year ago if I would be watching Lucifer season 4 — much less if I’d be so inspired as to need to write something about it — I would have called you crazy. In fact, after a messy third season, when the series looked like it was doomed for cancellation, I actively called for it to be sent straight to Hell. And then FOX did exactly that, making me wonder if I’d ever be able to repent for my sins against the hottest devil that ever deviled. As we know, though, Netflix saved Lucifer. Thank Hades.

For a show to be reborn in this way, for the new season to be better than ever, is no small feat. But that’s what Lucifer season 4 has done. Besides being completely overwhelmed by just how well-done the shorter, bingeable season was, I couldn’t get one thing out of my mind: Despite all the series has overcome, the message that Lucifer‘s fourth season sends about self-acceptance is far more powerful than all of its previous struggles combined.

It might just even be more powerful than the Devil Himself.

The Resident 2×19 Review: A Storm Is Coming

The Resident 2×19 “Snowed In” takes place during a rare Atlanta blizzard. For many reasons, I was less interested and disengaged from this episode than the rest in this season. After so many episodes that have been intensely plot and character accelerating, even the backdrop of an intense southern blizzard couldn’t carry all of the missed opportunities here along.

The Resident 2×18 Recap and Review: Taking a Chance on Love

The Resident 2×18 “Emergency Contact” was packed full of taking leaps of faith on love. There were a lot of loose ends tied up — like the whereabouts of Julian Booth and the fate of Mina and Micah’s engagement; but the questions left unanswered far outweighed the answers.

The Resident 2×17 Recap: Second Chances

In The Resident 2×17 “Betrayal,” there are stories of second chances, redemption, and justice (?). The episode revolves around a gunshot wound, mono, and an undercover takedown resulting in a shootout and a high-speed vehicle pursuit. Is this blowing your mind? Well, it should because when The Resident does action, it does it so well. As the episode reached its end, viewers on twitter seemed to be going out of their minds; and man, was it suspenseful until the very last second.

The Resident 2×11: The Error of Our Ways

Learn Humility

It was a mistake that was almost made that haunted ‘The Raptor’ himself, Dr. AJ Austin (Malcolm-Jamal Warner). The Resident 2×11: “Operator Error” begins with a pep-talk between best friends, Devon (Manish Dayal) and Bradley (Steven Reddington). Bradley is trying to kickstart his medical marketing firm by pitching QuoVadis products to Chastain. While giving his presentation, Bradley collapses to the floor and Bell confirms that he has no pulse.
