White Collar: Episode 3.16- Judgement Day

    Last night was the third season finale of White Collar. It was the big build up of everything from the stolen U-Boat treasure to the old stolen Raphael. But, most of all, it was about Neil's commutation and his race against Agent Cramer. And as always, there was a nice little cliffhanger thrown in...

These problems will affect this blog ONLY and not Cinema Won.

Glee: Episode 3.14- On My Way

                                                             SPOILER WARNING

    Let me get this out of the way before I talk about the episode. Yes, I am a fan of Glee. The first season is still fantastic and one of the best first season of any TV show ever. The second season however, fared a lot worse, most due to the show's haphazardness when it came to it's own continuity. The third season so far has managed to at least bring the show a little ways from the edge of the one-and-done cliff. And last night winter finale of the show, "On My Way", featured both the show best and worst traits.

Castle: Episode 4.16- Linchpin

    Every show tries to be bigger than itself. It's a fact of life. It tries to make an episode that goes way out of it normal comfort zone and does something extremely different. However, most of the time it doesn't work.
    Take last night's conclusion of the "epic" 2-part Castle event, "Linchpin". Castle, a murder-mystery-drama-comedy, tried to become a serious Bourne-type spy thriller. And did a really bad job at it.

The Walking Dead: Episode 2.09- Triggerfinger

                                                                    Spoiler Warning

    Overall, the latest season of AMC's The Walking Dead has been pretty hit-or-miss. The farm has led to some great drama, but it has dragged at times. But, since returning from winter break last week, AMC's The Walking Dead has bite back with a vengeance.
    Last night's episode. "Triggerfinger", was filled with the nasty moral dilemmas that make the zombie apocalypse so intriguing. Should we leave this poor kid to die? Should Shane really have lied to Lori? Is Glenn in love really a bad thing?
