  • Don’t Jump in the Goose Poop

    I love how you can tell the victim at the beginning of a crime show by which person the camera focuses on. Sorry casino dance, it seems your number was up. Dad: Savino and the sheriff are great with their subtle threats to each other. I liked the kiss the ring moment. Me: I did too, plus the fact that they were just throwing verbal punches at each other with the newly elected mayor standing there. (Side Note: Savino sees […]

  • A NCIS Abs Workout

    I think this episode of “NCIS” was one of the hardest for me to write about. Not because I didn’t like the episode, but because there were so many great lines and funny moments I didn’t take a lot of notes. Dad: I love episodes with Fornell. It is hilarious to watch Gibbs and Fornell play off each other. Me: Plus, it’s nice the ex-wife still keeps them on their toes. Dad: Not Gibbs. She didn’t rattle him like she […]

  • Reid’s Girlfriend Revealed

    OK, I’m glad Reid is trying to be careful for his sweetheart, but I really wanted to watch this first date! Oh, and I was surprised they chose Beth Riesgraf to play the part. Secretly I was hoping for the bartender he did his magic trick on back in Season 4 of “Criminal Minds.” I am a fan of “Leverage,” so seeing Beth here may be a little weird for me. At least we are finally getting some details about […]

  • I think I’ll Skip the S.O.S.

    It’s like “Vegas” is giving us two sets of tangos to watch each week.  First, there’s the flirting between Deputy Lamb and Mia. Then, you have the back and forth between Savino and the sheriff. I haven’t decided which one I prefer watching yet. Dad: That brother is in over his head. He’s going to get burned. Me: By Mia or the father? Dad: Both. There’s something about TV shows that has always bugged me, movies too. Can you really […]

  • Ziva’s Secret Schmuel

    Gibbs makes moonshine?! How did I miss this fact? It seems like I was way more interesting in what was happening with the team then the murder in this episode of “NCIS.” Me: I knew Shmuel wasn’t going to be a boyfriend type. Tony was just too obsessed with figuring it out. Dad: Yeah, but did you see his face when Ziva walked out with Shmuel? That was not who he expected. Ha ha ha. Me: When has Tony ever […]

  • Serial Killers and Bad Handwritting

    Motivational speakers have always bugged me. I mean, they are similar to the preachers I enjoy listening to, those who inspire and challenge me. But I guess without something foundational like a Bible to back it up, I’ve always just naturally assumed they were faking it. It made it kind of hard to relate to the victim on “Criminal Minds.” This week’s killer had the complete serial-killer package, if you ask me. There was the tragic home life, lots of […]

  • Gibbs is a Badass

    Dad: I don’t like the emotional Gibbs. Me: He’s not emotional, he’s relatable. Dad: Nah, he’s just supposed to beat people up and get the bad guy. Me: Well he was called a badass this week. Dad: That’s true. I am glad “NCIS” once again got their man in Part Two of the PTSD episode. The only thing, Part One had me more hooked on every word than this episode. That may be because Mom and Dad were in town […]

  • Stick to Mario and Donkey Kong

    I have nothing against video games. I find them fun, and mainly lean towards Mario and Donkey Kong. I guess that’s why I’d never kidnap teens, lock them in a basement, and force them to act out the game for me. Plus, where would I get magical feathers? Would a school bus full of teenagers really stop for a broken down car? I mean seriously! There has to be some sort of school guideline saying nope, that may not be […]

  • Go Hug a Cactus

    Dad: Hahahahaha, go hug a cactus. That’s a good line. I may have to use that. Me: Where are there any cacti in Kentucky? Dad: They aren’t. The person would have to leave to find one. Bonus! I did not see that coming! I mean like 15 seconds before I figured it out, but by then it was too late. Rizzo killed the big boss! The whole “Vegas” episode, we’re watching the ramifications of Savino murdering the Milwaukee guys. We […]

  • A Break from The Mentalist

    I think Dad and I are going to take a break from writing our thoughts on “The Mentalist.” At this point, I’m so frustrated with the show I once loved that I may stop watching it all together. And this week’s episode is what really tipped the scales. Dad: Oh, not this Red John crap again. I just wish they’d get that over with or something. This is getting ridiculous. Me: Agreed. I don’t even care who it is anymore, […]

  • Playing War on Main Street

    Dad: Now that’s funny. Me: What? Dad: Making those robbers stand in the road in their underwear. (Laughter) Sorry if I’m a little behind on my “Vegas” reviews but I had to wait until Mom and Dad were finished with their disaster relief work in New York. It’s just not the same watching episodes without him. Exhibit A: Dad: That’s how they used to do it back then. They’d take you home instead of arresting you for little things. Me: […]

  • Criminal Minds Sergeant

    The Unknown of Vietnam

    When will people learn? You never get into cars with strangers! It doesn’t matter if they are cute, former firemen. It’s always a bad idea. That being said, the first victim did have a really good voice, in my opinion. Side note: I noticed for the first time they added JJ kicking butt to the opening titles of “Criminal Minds.” Love it! This week I’m adding being drowned with bleach to my list of ways I never want to die. […]
