THE AMERICANS: Season 3, Episode 6

Every week I sit and watch it thinking, this show is moving kinda’ slow, not much is really happening and then I hit the 45 minute commercial break part and realize I’ve not exhaled since it started and my notes are jibberish because I can’t seem to look away...

We welcome Raven Presley to R@R with her new weekly recaps of this season of ONCE UPON A TIME: "Before we begin our tale, first let us briefly remember the story of Elsa and Anna of Arrendale.

SLEEPY HOLLOW, Season Finale

The show opens with a nice war montage: shots being prepared, guns being loaded. An epic Revolutionary War fight scene plays out, with Ichabod being a bad ass and busting Redcoats in the face as he searches for the Hessian with a mark on his hand. This is somewhat familiar, as it’s a throwback to the shows first episode. A lot of this final episode of the season (and perhaps of the series?) goes back to the original well, both as a love letter to the fans and as a way of starting from scratch...

HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER, Season 1, Episode 13

This week’s episode was filled with so many OMG moments, including a master class in acting from Viola Davis and Cicely Tyson.

THE AMERICANS: Season 3, Episode 4

Last night’s episode was titled “Dimebag,” thought a more apt title would have been “Young Recruits.” Elizabeth and Philip are closing in on the CIA leader’s daughter, the babysitter with a penchant for older men, from the last episode. Her name is Kimberly -- Kimmie if she likes you. She is a young college freshman with a hankering for cheap pot and fake IDs -- two things Jim…I mean Philip, can definitely provide for her...

So, how does one handle the problem of a naked, dead spy? Well, if you’re Phillip, you call your wife, she brings a big suitcase and the two of you systematically, without words or direction, bend, break and contort the dead body until she fits snuggly in said suitcase. It was awesome...
