The Resident 2×09 Review: Who’s Going To Die?

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.

The Resident 2×08 Review: Chastain Reveals All Secrets

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.

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.

The Resident 2×06 Review: Clyde, the Abandoned Arm

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 Resident 2×04 Recap &Review: “About Time”

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.

The Resident 2×03 Review: “Three Words”

Trust

The overall theme of “Three Words” was trust. Viewers were privy to trust issues in a marriage between two patients. We saw the broken pieces of a parental relationship between Conrad (Matt Czuchry) and his father possibly slowly being put back together. The uneasiness and deceit of a business relationship between Dr. Bell (Bruce Greenwood) and Marshall Winthrop (Glenn Morshower) was revealed. Viewers saw a rare moment where Dr. AJ Austin’s (Malcolm-Jamal Warner) trust in himself and his own decisions wavered briefly. Devon revealed his own trust issues in a medical device provided by Julian Booth (Jenna Dewan) in an elderly patient. Finally (FINALLY!), we were let into the very beginning of CoNic (Czuchry and Emily VanCamp) and what went wrong the first time they attempted a relationship.
