November, 2019

November 2nd, 2019, 2:02 p.m. - "Almost everything I did on Earth I did without thinking or worrying about what would happen. That's how I got my nickname, the Defendant"

Modern Family – "The Last Halloween": I love when someone subverts expectations, like Phil pulling one over on Claire here. I also loved that she was excited to create a new tradition. They have a fun relationship. Rating: 4 awesome Judge Judy Garland costumes

Perfect Harmony – "Halle-Boo-Yah": This just in: Bradley Whitford's children have disinherited themselves and changed their last names after seeing him dance. No one blames them. Rating: 3 fake knives

The Good Place – "A Chip Driver Mystery": Yay, Simone! She's become a really great character. And while Brent is, obviously a horrible person, the actor playing him is doing a terrific job. Rating: 3 Hottest of the Week awards

November 6th, 2019, 8:06 p.m. - Playing fire

45. Miracle Creek (Angie Kim)
This was pretty predictable. I figured out a couple of major plot points really early on. Also, everyone in this book is awful. You should all go to jail for obstruction of justice!

Up next: Ninth House (Leigh Bardugo)

November 9th, 2019, 1:27 p.m. - "You don't need to buy their love. Buy mine and I'll talk you up"

Modern Family – "A Game of Chicken": Somehow, the two dimmest characters had the two brightest moments this week. First, Luke's app idea was brilliant. Second, I loved that Haley said she felt close to something bigger than herself in Yosemite, so they should take the kids on a trip there and say thank you. Phil and Claire, the kids are all right. Rating: 3 chicken suits

Supernatural – "Atomic Monsters": I would have rather watched a whole episode's worth of the first scene than what we actually got. Also, if they're just going to bring back past characters all season, can I make some requests? Rating: 3 Dean and Sam bobbleheads

Perfect Harmony – "Rivalry Week": "Bad noise bears" was the funniest thing I heard all week. This show just keeps getting better. Rating: 4 pink wigs

The Good Place – "Help Is Other People": How is Simone not wondering either how she wound up in the Good Place or why she would land in the Bad Place? And why has Jason been sidelined so much this season? The next few episodes better make up for all this. Rating: 3 things you can blow up more than once
