What You Should have Watched Last Night:
Sunday Night 10-11-15
Check out my review of several shows I watched on Sunday night that were of very high quality.
While I enjoyed Brooklyn Nine Nine, and felt it was entertaining, I really am having 2nd thoughts about including it in my weekly reviews. Please don' get me wrong, I love the show and there are episodes where significant things happen that are worthy of review, but comparing it to the rest of the Sunday lineup is simply unfair.
The show is a funny comedy you can watch without a lot of context and really doesn't require a point by point review. I may just review it when something significant happens.
Last night on The Goodwife, we saw the next step in Alicia's quest to build her own law firm up, she's forming a team. The partnership between Luca and Alicia is one of the more grounded relationships to latch onto right now, even though it’s still in its early stages. I really think Luca is needed of the show as she brings a much needed element that has been missing ever since Alicia and Kalinda stopped being close. Alicia needs a real friend and real partner and you can clearly see where its going. Then she has Grace, who is anxious to work for her mother, and is doing a pretty good job. I like her new role.
Also we met the new private investigator that clearly will be Alicia's new love interest. They keep trying, I will give them that, but fans will never really want to see her with anybody but Will. I am interested to see what Eli has planned. It kind of far fetched that Peter would just drop him like this after all that he did for him. I'm sure revenge will be rough.
Quantico is really one of the most entertaining and mysterious shows on TV. You just never know what new twist they are going to throw at you. The series is proving effective at slowly revealing elaborate and interesting secret histories for its cast and I was pretty surprised when we learned that Asher was also an agent all along, much like Ryan. And Alex has no clue.
It was crazy when they flipped Alex's own mother against her and I will be interested to see where that goes.
Rating: Pretty Good
Poor Billy, what an idiot. Why would the fool give up all his equity on the land he already knew was loaded with oil? Foolish. I really am enjoying Blood and Oil. That first week didn't grab me, but its been great ever since.
Hap is ruthless sum bitch boy. Screwing his son's girl and the way he swindled poor Billy. It was great though. Payback is coming and it will make the show even better.

Ok, it's settled, Carrie has a death wish. Last night's Homeland was very good as far as story line progression goes, but it was very frustrating watching this woman torcher herself and put herself in stupid situations.
Why would she go back to the Middle East, let along stay once her boss leaves and the mission she came to complete was accomplished? Smh. I was so angry. Then the very end has me thinking that Quin will be dispatched to attempt to kill her. i just have a bad feeling.
Rating: Very good
This week on the Affair, we got a continuation f the timeline from last week's episode, but this time with Allison and Cole's perspectives. I thought this was a very good idea. As last season we got Noah and Alison’s side of the story, this season we get to see Helen and Cole’s perspectives. I think this really helps the show and really gives viewers a different perspective.
This show forces you to choose which side of teh story do you really believe. i love that aspect of the show. They always say there are three sides to every story. I’m curious to see if every two episodes is going to be a complete story now, or if that was it just the first two episodes in order to introduce Helen and Cole’s perspectives to the show.
