Monk: Mr. Monk's 100th Case (2008)
Season 7, Episode 7
6/10
did he really do that
20 February 2017
Do you really believe he solved 100 cases. They say he solved 100 cases because this is the 100th episode. But let's not forget that there were a couple of two part episodes. Like the pilot and Mr. Monk on the run. And I distinctly recall Monk solving two o cases in one episode. And there's the fact that Monk was working a few years before the show began. How can he only have worked on 100 cases.

CSI: Immortality (2015 TV Movie)
3/10
LOusy
22 October 2015
Warning: Spoilers
This finale will go down as one of the worst. They could have at least solve an unsolved case or a case wherein no one was arrested or convicted. like the one wherein the episode was written by the writers of Two and a Half men, I believe no one was arrested in that. But instead Lady Heather was a person of interest which is why they asked Grissom to return to help. If Grissom had ended up with Heather it would have been OK but instead he got back together with Sara. Which is something I didn't want to happened cause I never liked them. And it so unfortunate George Eads didn't want to appear; I mean Grissom was in San Diego which is where Eads' character Nick now works. And if he didn't appear they could have him call or text Grissom. And Catherine after leaving to join the FBI decides to come back after a few years. It would have been better if Grissom decided he wanted to come back. And if Sara went with Grissom does mean that she gave up her job and does that mean Catherine gets it. Cause there was no explanation. And all we have to know about what about happened to Finlay is that when DB was packing he also packed a plaque honoring her. Another thing what's going to happen to the lab with DB gone and possible Sara that leaves Greg, Morgan, Lindsay and maybe only Catherine. I also wonder why Greg and Morgan didn't hook up, I think they look good together.

The Pretender: Indy Show (1998)
Season 2, Episode 10
8/10
One of my favorite episodes.
20 July 2014
Warning: Spoilers
I like this episode when Jarod was doing his research on who tampered with the car that led to the driver's accident. Initially Jarod's investigation made him suspect the victim's brother because he has the tool that was used. He also discovered that the two brothers have an intense sibling rivalry, which was also fueled by their father. But later it was discovered that the other driver has the tool because he and the brother made a bet which the driver won. It's refreshing to see that Jarod is not perfect. I wish they had more episodes like this. I find it dull or not exciting for Jarod to know who he is looking for and to just simply go after him.

How I Met Your Mother: Last Forever: Part Two (2014)
Season 9, Episode 24
3/10
not what i was hoping
3 April 2014
Warning: Spoilers
I wasn't sure what I was hoping would be the end. To tell you the truth when I saw who would be playing "the Mother" this season, I for some reason didn't see her and Josh Radnor who plays Ted having any chemistry. So I would think that the reason why Ted is telling his kids how he met his mother was because they were divorced. In the beginning I thought Ted and Robin were a good couple but to see get back together in the end doesn't have the effect that it should. Maybe they should have kept who Ted went to see a secret and end on a cliffhanger, The whole thing could be resolved in a movie. And I was disappointed that Robin couldn't keep Barney grounded. But you know what they say about a leopard and his spots. The show was basically good all these but this ending is not exactly a fitting close to it. It's like the Sopranos which a lot say was not good.

Magnum, P.I.: Tran Quoc Jones (1984)
Season 5, Episode 9
7/10
Why didn't they bring him back
11 January 2014
In the end of this episode, Tran Quoc chose to go back to the streets which is very sad. TC said he was going to try and see if he has any other family out there. So why not have a follow up episode where in they do find his family and they try to find him. But he gets himself in trouble. So Magnum and TC have to save him then reunite him with his family. It should be noted that Roland Harrah who played Tran Quoc would also appear in two episodes of another Bellisario show Airwolf. Who knows if they brought him back would it have an affect on his life, in other words would he still have died? As I said it's so sad. Who knows maybe he can Magnum's daughter would have made a cute couple.

Desperate Housewives: I Guess This Is Goodbye (2010)
Season 6, Episode 23
8/10
Proud of Gaby, sad for Angie
3 July 2013
This has got to be Gaby's greatest moment. She went out and saved Danny by climbing up the trellis. That's something I never thought she would ever do. But Angie things didn't end well for her, she and Nick would still go on the run. I wonder why they couldn't let them face the music or someone approaches them and tells them, they don't have to run. And also I don't like how things ended for Danny by that I mean I can't believe he fell for Ana who is selfish. At first he was interested in Julie who it turns out was seeing Nick. But I don't remember what Julie told Ana before she left but somehow Nick who earlier kept rebuffing her was into her.

Terrible
2 April 2013
Warning: Spoilers
This was a terrible movie. Most of the characters from the original movie were written out. And I can't believe they eliminated Duke. Though I shouldn't be surprised there were rumors that he would only make a brief appearance and that the Rock is the star the movie. For me Duke is G.I. Joe. And the fact that Cobra Commander was his friend makes it more crucial for him to be there. I was hoping that in the end they would reveal he survived but alas that didn't happen. I was hoping for something like in X-Men Last Stand when Charles Xavier whom was believed to have died entered the body of a comatose man. But Cobra Commander got away. Maybe if they make another one they can bring him back and I hope they do. Maybe they can bring him back as Duke's brother, Falcon. I also miss the character of Scarlett.

One of my favorites
26 January 2013
Warning: Spoilers
This is one of my favorite episodes in the series. I liked the part when Sheldon was telling Leonard that Stephanie moved in and Leonard tells him that's not true. And Penny shows him that she has indeed moved in and he gets shocked when he realizes they're correct. And Leonard tried to tell her that he feels they're moving too fast but she breaks down when she thinks that he's breaking up with her that he not only can't tell her, they do it. Eventually Howard advised him to text her and he did. At first we thought they're still together but she would not appear again. Too bad. I really liked her but I guess they felt that Leonard is suppose to be with Penny. And an added bonus, she was being hounded by Sheldon don't constantly check him out because he believes he's sick. In the end she told him he has a condition that requires him to stop talking which he does. In the end, took a page out Stephen Hawking's book and used his computer to communicate.

The most surprising one
30 September 2012
This is the most surprising one of all I have seen. When I saw the team roster, I thought ABC had this. They had William Shatner, Doug Barr, John James, John Davidson, Thelma Hopkins, and Donna Dixon. And I wrote CBS off because they have Pernell Roberts who was 52 at the time, and they had Brian Mitchell and Robert Walden whom I was uncertain of. And NBC had Daniel J. Travanti,and Lynn Redgrave. I was also uncertain of Bruce Weitz. And also Joe Pescopo because he's a comedian. I'm sorry to say that in the past I don't think comedians did well like Arte Johnson, Jane Curtin, Melanie Chartoff, and Robin Williams. But to my amazement he did well. It was years later I learned that he's a body builder. NBC almost dominated it. And to my amazement ABC ended in third place. NBC and CBS met in the tug of war, and CBS would have three women on their team. But in the end CBS won. I guess it came down to a battle of the front men Tom Wopat and Mark Harmon. But I also wonder, I believe that going into the Tug of War NBC had a 100 point lead over CBS. And in the third one the same thing happened when ABC had a 100 point lead over NBC. NBC won the Tug of War but the score would end in a tie but because ABC won more events they were declared the winner. Shouldn't have the same thing happened here?

A let down
14 September 2012
Warning: Spoilers
This was movie mostly a retrospective or flashback from the original; series. It's not like other reunion of old TV shows like Gunsmoke, The Rockord Files, Perry Mason, Kojak, McCloud, the Andy Griffith Show which was Return to mayberry and Get Smart wherein something actually was happening. Wyatt spent most of the movie meeting people he knew and reminiscing about the past like his conflict with the Clantons, his meeting Ned Buntline and how he gave him the Buntline special while he was looking for someone. I was hoping for some action. I wonder why they didn't do a thing on his relationship with Doc Holliday that's big part of life as well as the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral.

Six Degrees: Ray's Back (2007)
Season 1, Episode 10
8/10
Consummate episode
15 December 2011
This episode probably best exemplifies the plot of the show. In this episode one guy comes in and interacts with most of the show's cast. The character Ray comes to town and tries to get Whitney with whom he made a pact with to fulfill it. And he goes to see Laura about her husband claiming he knew her when he was in Iraq. He then plays cards with Damian who later asks him for a job. And he tries to make amends with Stephen; it seems Stephen asked him to sell a photo for him but instead ran off with the money. And now Stephen wants his photo back. And when Stephen assaults Ray, he asks Whitney to bail him out. And it is then that they find out that they both know Ray. And Ray then asks Damian to try and locate the photo which he does. While he didn't interact with Mae she was there when the package he sent to Laura was delivered. I don't believe Carlos even made an appearance in this episode.

Hope it ends differently
26 August 2011
Warning: Spoilers
The original movie ended with evil being triumphant. I hope it doesn't end like that. There are remakes that end differently than the original like Ocean's 11; in the end they lost the money they got. But in the remake with Clooney and Pitt, they got away. In the Thomas Crown Affair with Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway he got away and the girl didn't go with him. In the one with Pierce Brosnan she joined him and he also made restitution. But there are also some that doesn't end nicely like the original. Like Psycho, in the original the psychiatrist gave a very detailed explanation of why Norman behaved the way he did, while in the remake, one would think that the psychiatrist is anxious to leave. The way the original ended made it difficult for me to sleep. Let's hope it's not a downer.

I like Samuel Jackson more than I did Bruce Willis
21 February 2003
I like this movie because of Samuel Jackson than Bruce Willis. Cause I frankly I don't like these arrogant good guys like Bruce Willis' John McClane. He has an annoying habit of ticking people off and telling them off. It's refreshing to see him being told off, which is what Samuel Jackson did.

They should have had Steve McQueen in it.
23 July 2002
This movie is about a man who is the descendant of the character, Josh Randall from the television series, WANTED DEAD OR ALIVE, who was played by Steve McQueen. In most movies that were inspired by television series, they try to have one of the actor's from the original series in a cameo or supporting role. Like Ernest Borgnine of McHale's Navy, James Garner of Maverick, and John Forsythe of Charlie's Angels. Or like in the case of Sgt. Bilko which starred Phil Silvers, his daughter, Cathy appeared in the movie. Now the only star and regular on the show was Steve McQueen, and he had already departed, when this movie was done. But except for a brief reference, there was no other mention of the character of Josh Randall. As I said, he was already gone, as were most of the actors who worked on Dragnet, but it was interesting that the picture of the show's star, Jack Webb was on the desk of the movie's star Dan Ackroyd. So, why could they have had a picture of Steve McQueen, somewhere like on his boat or his office or the gun that Steve McQueen used on the series. So there could be some kind of link to the show.

The Three Stooges (2000 TV Movie)
Did Shemp and Curly get along?
6 June 2002
This was a great homage to the great comedy team. However, I wonder if Shemp and Curly got along cause during the whole there wasn't one scene wherein Shemp and Curly were together. They were brothers and after watching this, I wondered if they were close.

CHiPs '99 (1998 TV Movie)
Something is not right.
17 April 2002
During the show's final season, the character of Jon Baker left the CHP and was in Wyoming with his father. And Ponch was there with a new partner, Bobby Nelson. Eventually, his brother, Bruce would become Ponch's new partner. First off, it was strange that Bruce was there and Bobby wasn't, and he wasn't even mentioned. And as I said Jon was the one who left and Ponch stayed, so why was it that Jon was the one who was now the Captain and Ponch was the one who came back. It doesn't make much sense to me. Unless you are not that devout a follower of the show. Like on EIGHT IS ENOUGH, one the characters was an actress for most the series' run but during the final season tried out broadcast journalism. But when the reunion movie came out, she was an actress again.

A Father's Choice (2000 TV Movie)
does anyone care about the mother?
28 May 2001
Warning: Spoilers
This is your typical movie about a parent trying to reconnect with his children after the death of his ex-spouse. It's pretty much routine. However, the one thing that I think they overlooked or didn't address was the apprehension of the girls' mother's killer. In the end the mother's killer was never caught. Don't you think that would be something that's going to haunt the girls? If this is a true story, there's not much that can be done.

Rhythm & Blues (1992– )
good start, bad finish
17 May 2001
I saw the first episode and said to myself, this has the potential to be a good show. There were so many funny things they did. And Roger Kabler had me in stitches with his antics. I just don't know where it went wrong.

Blacke's Magic (1986– )
This show should have been kept on.
27 September 2000
The people who choose to cancel this show should have given it more time to catch on. This was show was created by the same people who created Murder, She Wrote, and unlike that show that needed a murder in every story. Blacke's Magic occasionally solved a murder but also dealt with other crimes like inexplicable robberies, unexplained phenomena, and also once in awhile helping people who were either being blackmailed or going up against powerful people. It's too bad that this show was cancelled.

Why wasn't sequel made?
8 September 2000
I think this movie should belong to the list of films that ended with a few not being resolved, thus laying the ground work for a possible sequel. I mean movies like Hang em High which ended with things not being fully resolved--there were still two members of the lynch mob who were not brought in when the movie ended. I assume they were going to make another movie to explain this. Or how about movies like Doc Savage and the last Andy Hardy movie ended with one of those "to be continued" things or "watch out for the next movie". And for some reason there never was one. This movie did not end with one of those things, but there were hints like Michlo swearing revenge against Paco for shooting him thus causing him to loose his leg. I don't know if anyone feels that way but I think they should not do this so much, unless they are sure that they are going to make a sequel.

What became of the American P.O.W.'s?
10 August 2000
Though the "murder" was solved. The fate of the American soldiers, who were being held and tortured in Korea, was not really resolved, as far as I saw. I know that they were not the center of the story but still their presence was greatly felt. They should have resolved their fate along with the murder.

The Mask of Alexander Cross (1977 TV Movie)
This man makes J.R. Ewing seem like a saint.
6 August 2000
Before J.R. Ewing first came on the scene. We saw Alexander Cross. Now these men have a few things in common. Like, they both enjoy the company of women and usually do it to get something they want. And apparently, both these men have no conscience in certain matters. But that's where the similarities end. Alexander's involved in acts that potentially mean harm to countless individuals, while J.R. doesn't cross that line. If this was a pilot for a possible series it's too bad that it wasn't picked up, so that we could have delved deeper into Alexander's past.

The Jesse Owens Story (1984 TV Movie)
This is a real "It's a wonderful life".
16 June 2000
When I watched this movie it made me think that it's a real "It's a wonderful life". Cause like in the movie, Jesse Owens always tries his best but in the end he seems to be left with very little. And if anyone has a reason to be sore at the world it's him. But in the end when it seemed like he was up against the wall, all of his friends rallied to help him. Just as in "It's a wonderful life" no man is a failure who as friends and Jesse Owens had more than enough, when it counted.

True Blue (1989–1990)
This could have been the ADAM-12 of the 90's.
26 May 2000
It's too bad that the network did not give this show a chance. Over the years I have heard critics state that most police shows, in between DRAGNET and HILL STREET BLUES, were not realistic. If you ask me TRUE BLUE has both qualities that are sought for in a cop show. It had action and showed how stressful the job is on the men and women of the department. It even had a touch of humor too.

It did not have a good premise.
11 April 2000
I would like to begin by saying that there were a lot of great action sequences. It was very thrilling. However, I could not find the opening of the movie as all that credible; I mean we are suppose to believe that Sandra Bullock's character tried to have a relationship with Keanu Reeves' character from the first movie, which did not work out, and got a new boyfriend in Jason Patric who's not only a cop too, but also under the same unit that Keanu Reeves was with in the first. It's just too bad that Keanu was not in this movie cause we lost out on the great gag that we could have seen had his character met up with Glenn Plummer's. Frankly, I just did not see the point of having him (Glenn Plummer) in the movie without Keanu.
