24 – “Day 8: 6:00 A.M – 8:00 A.M”

Under the right circumstances, silence can be more powerful than sound.  In Hollywood movies, it’s always entertaining to see an explosion or two, but in the grand scheme of things, which is more eerie: the explosion itself or the silence that lingers over the aftermath?  24 has perfected the use of silence to achieve a more powerful effect via the silent clock that sometimes ends each episode.  Normally, each episode of 24 ends with the ominous “beep, beep” sound byte, indicating that we’ve reached the end of yet another hour in the life of Jack Bauer (it also indicates when the narrative is about to be interrupted by increasingly irritating and lengthy commercials involving the Old Spice guy who rides backwards on a horse and Walmart “Rollback” sales).  However, in a particularly powerful moment, 24 will turn towards an interesting gimmick: the silent clock.  Instead of turning to the “beeps,” episodes that end on an emotionally heavy note will end in silence, as if to magnify the tragedy that has occurred.  In last week’s two-part episode, 24 turned to the silent clock for the first time this season, providing some of the best twists, action sequences and dialogues between characters that we’ve seen so far in Season 8.

Breaking Bad – The Show You Should Be Watching

There’s some television shows, such as Grey’s Anatomy, Desperate Housewives and CSI (any cop procedural show will fit the bill as well) that do not have to make an attempt whatsoever in order to pull in massive ratings.  Once shows that were considered contenders for Emmy awards, they’ve become the butt of jokes in the TV community.  In a way, they’re the TV equivalent of fast food; it’s fun while it’s around, but in the long run, you’re left unsatisfied, craving a little something extra and nursing clogged arteries for the rest of your life.  Okay, maybe not the last one, but I’m assuming everybody understands my little diatribe.  On the other hand, there are shows that win every award under the sun (“Mad Men” and “30 Rock” jump immediately to my mind) yet fail to pull in the ratings of the aforementioned “fast food” shows.  I realize that there are probably numerous fans of Grey’s Anatomy and CSI that are throwing food, drinks or anything sharp at their computer monitors, cursing me for saying these horrid things, but it’s just my opinion.

True Blood – Beautifully Broken

A more methodical episode that develops the main plotlines introduced in Bad Blood, whilst introducing some new characters that bring a few fresh twists to the tail. Even if slightly lacking in the ‘crack like’ addiction of the first season, it’s still infused with dark comedy and there are some very strong hints that there may be more to Bill’s attachment to Sookie than we were first led to believe.

Lost – LAX, Parts 1 and 2

Move aside, Damages. Get out of the way, 24. The men and women who have helped model one of the greatest serial television shows of all time are back with a vengeance, bringing the same level of intrigue and mystery as always. Lost has made a habit out of reinventing themselves each season, changing the game in ways that most writers and directors wouldn’t dare to do. Where some shows play it safe from season to season, rarely departing from the same tired format, Lost has been able to change the game every season and keep people interested. The story may be confusing as hell and leave millions of people each week screaming at their televisions, but it’s important to realize that Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse have an endgame in mind. If you remember that, as I do, the show is that much more enjoyable.

Lost – What Kate Did

It’s always tough for shows to follow up premieres, especially if your show has an incredible premiere, and especially if that show is Lost. Luckily, Lost is able to keep the momentum moving, even if it’s not quite as energetic as last week.  Kate is a character that is almost universally hated on Lost, and I’ll admit that, on occasion, I’ll cringe a little bit when I hear a Kate-centric episode is approaching us.  However, the focus on Kate is actually somewhat interesting thanks to a superb performance once again by Josh Holloway as Sawyer and the sideways-flashes, which continue to frustrate as much as they intrigue.

Part of me expected this to be your typical “Kate runs away from the cops” episode, but it was quite the surprise to see the Kate and Claire reunion last well beyond the taxi cab ride. The parallels between each universe continue to appear, as we see that Ethan ends up being Claire’s doctor when she goes into labor, and even though Kate and Claire clearly do not know each other in this parallel universe, Kate is still helping Claire and her son.  Kate has made it clear, between last season and the beginning of this one that she is on the Island for no other reason than to find Claire and reunite with her. The fact that the writers have found a way to unite these two characters in both the normal, straight-forward story-line we’ve come to know and love AND the alternate universe makes everything much more interesting. I have to give many props to the writers for setting up the universe this way because it’s really bringing up some interesting points. The way that Claire said the name “Aaron” just came to her is almost a sign that these two realities are going to have to merge at some point and become one. They’re related to each other in ways they don’t know yet and Juliet’s phrase “It worked” may end up being the phrase to remember this season.

Chuck: Chuck vs. the Beard

Wonderful, wonderful episode which had me giggling, gasping and squealing throughout – entertainment at its best! *spoilers*

Finally the moment (or ONE of the moments, at least) we’ve all been waiting for: Morgan figures out Chuck’s secret. And in the best way possible, I think. Not through overhearing something he shouldn’t, not through a guilt ridden confession which Morgan would not be able to believe – but because Chuck chose to save his friend over maintaining his cover, and with a handful of competent bad guys to corroborate his story there was no “Dude, get serious”-moment either. And Morgan did what we all hoped he would – he thought it was awesome. 😀

From Buy More employees on the barricades to Morgan’s bravery in the face of danger, this episode had its fair share of crowning moments of Awesome, and I can’t wait to see where the show will take us next. Will Captain Awesome continue to crumble under the pressure?

Will Ellie agree to join Awesome on a trip to “No-spy-land”?

Will Chuck’s new found insight about Sarah lead anywhere?

And who is that mysterious voice from Casey’s past? 😀
