Solid mix of drama, comedy, soap and action. Brings resolution to some plot-lines and ends on significant cliffhanger. 9/10
Judd Hirsch, Amanda Peet. Very strong central story, which deviates from formula and delivers an exciting and morally ambiguous tale. Meanwhile the b-story about Alicia’s children is understated but compelling. Not much happens in it, but it’s engrossing and rewarding because it is driven by character development. 10/10
Review of: The Good Wife
Could do with more laughs, but it’s certainly cute and lovable. Henry Zebrowski and Lenora Crichlow are stealing the show. So much so that I’m staring to wonder if Stu and Stephie are some kind of ‘stealth couple’ and the story will really turn out to be them and their courtship. 8/10

Anyone else find that Laurel is their favourite character on Arrow at the moment?
Review of: Arrow
Charlotte Ross. Even before that jaw-dropping ending this was 10/10 stuff: Great character scenes, and action. Loving the ongoing Laurel story arc. But, in general, the show is better now than it has ever been. Laurel and Thea have become two of the best characters on television. Both have a lot going on, nobody else knows, and we (the viewers) know that it is going to have a major impact on the show later on. That is fantastic.
Review of: Arrow
Fairly generic. Undercover tropes and action tropes we’ve seen done before. There are one or two story arc surprises, however. But this episode lacked a strong case-of-the-week. The show works best with a central a-story that gets wrapped up before the end credits. 6/10
Gerald McRaney. Quite a mixed back, with time devoted to a large number of characters and various storylines. Sheriff Shelby Parlow is emerging as an interesting good guy, while Colt Rhodes appears to be a much more dangerous character than we first suspected. Best scene: the marriage proposal at the end. Sweet. 9/10
