    Loving it so far, it's staying pretty faithful to the comics and I'm loving that about the series so far. A lot surprise characters I wasn't expecting to see, which makes things exciting for future episodes and how things will be developed with these characters! Full Review »

    A good start to a promising new network TV show. The Penguin was particularly excellent. Catwoman was also great. Here's hoping that Alfred will have a bigger role in future episodes. Full Review »

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. I very much enjoyed the first episode of Madame Secretary - but almost solely because of Leoni's performance. Not that anyone else was bad, just pushed to obvious supporting roles at the moment. The story itself was a bit cookie cutter, though I loved the pointed commentary made about how fashion will push out content in the daily news cycle. The one part I wasn't sure about, was the whole "conspiracy" within the WH bit. It seems gimmicky to me - I'm hoping for more "West Wing" than "Scandal".

    With a cast including Bebe Neuwirth, Zeljko Ivanek, and Keith Carradine, and some promising lesser knowns, I'm hoping the writing will be up to the potential.

I felt the Chief of Staff as the "opposition" was a bit forced and rang a touch false and the depth of th ed storyline left room for improvement. But the basics were there, especially in the casting of her staff. Full Review »
  5. I have read many of the Outlander book series and was very excited to hear that it was being made into a tv series. That being said I am truly disapointed after watching several episodes. You can not have a series of this magnitude with a weak leading lady. Caitriona Balfe is not a strong enough lead for the show and she does not get the essence of the Claire character. I cringe everytime she uses the expletive "Jesus H. Roosevelt Christ" and really find her unbelievable. There are so many talented actresses out there who would perhaps even look a little more like the book version of Claire that I am truly shocked that she was cast. Full Review »
