TRIAL & ERROR Review: “Pilot” / “A Wrench In the Case”

trial and error excerptSeason 1, Episodes 1-2 – It was a strong showing right out of the gate for NBC’s Trial & Error with the first two episodes premiering back to back. The writing is strong, the cast has the chops, and it is definitely worth your time.

APB Review: “Daddy’s Home”

apb excerptSeason 1, Episode 6 – Two talented guest stars make this week’s APB a tad more watchable, but it is still far from television’s best.

POWERLESS Review: “Cold Season”

powerless excerptSeason 1, Episode 5 – Again Powerless falls flat. Though with one or two solid laughs, the episode puts Danny Pudi’s Teddy in the spotlight, but doesn’t do his proven comedic chops justice.

APB Review: “Above & Beyond”

apb excerptSeason 1, Episode 5 – More of the same from APB on Fox this week, with predictable run-and-catch-the-bad-guy stories, with Gideon’s technology being the only semi-interesting element. It’s not enough to save the show.

TRAINING DAY Review: “Wages of Sin”

training day excerptSeason 1, Episode 5 – Training Day dedicates this episode to the late great Bill Paxton, and it’s a fittingly fun, fast-paced hour that lets Paxton’s Rourke truly shine.

APB Review: “Signal Loss”

apb excerptSeason 1, Episode 4 – Gideon Reeves creates a $2 million dollar jacket in this week’s APB that allows police to wear a wire undetected by bad guys. An interesting premise, but doesn’t quite deliver on its promise of cleverness and excitement.

POWERLESS Review: “Emily Dates a Henchman”

TRAINING DAY Review: “Code of Honor”

POWERLESS Review: “Sinking Day”

DOUBT Review: “Pilot”

doubt excerptSeason 1, Episode 1 – Doubt is just another courtroom procedural that fails to stand out in the history of the genre, despite a mostly strong and diverse cast. If they give these actors more to work with, we may have something notable.
