This Week on My TV: April 12, 2014

Disclaimer: Some shows I watch live and with others, I tend to be fairly behind on my tv watching. Even so, consider the fact that there could be spoilers ahead. All I can do is lead in with the show and episode. You read at your own risk!

**(The Mentalist, S6E15 "White as the Driven Snow") I still don't understand why, if Van Pelt was able to pry a board off the room in which she was being held captive in order to bang the trapdoor open, she didn't just pry more boards off what appeared to be a loosely constructed wall and just escape through the hole she made? -- OMG, Van Pelt! You've been kidnapped and held captive and you trust the first person who drives along on the road?? How are you not suspicious of anyone and everyone, until you know who took you?! -- It's always an "abused childhood" with the bad guys on these shows! -- I really thought Rigsby was going to get killed off. I'm (pun intended) gun shy now, my shows have offed so many characters this season.

**(The Big Bang Theory, S7E19 "The Indecision Amalgamation") Raj: And then after coffee, we went for a walk, and she told me she always thought people from India were exotic and mysterious. So, with my mouth, I said "we're just like anybody else," but with my eyes, I said "straight up, Red, hop on my flying carpet." -- Raj has two ladies! New girl Emily and ex-girlfriend Lucy. Raj: What I am supposed to do? How am I supposed to choose between  Emily and Lucy? Howard: Why do you have to choose? Date both of them. Raj: I can't date two women at once. Zero women, that's my sweet spot. -- The theme of indecision is one with which I am very familiar. The one I identified with most: Sheldon's "this or that" dilemma. The one that made me smile: Raj trying to choose between two girls. The one that fell a bit short: Penny trying to figure out whether or not to suck it up and do the bad movie because it would mean a paycheck. -- Funniest moment: Wil Wheaton taking off the orangutan-in-a-bikini mask. I laughed so hard, because I did *not* see that coming!

**(Last Man Standing, S3E18 "Project Mandy") Vanessa: I was really impressed with Mandy's designs. I always knew there was something going on in that pretty little head of hers. Mike: I always pictured a wind-up monkey playing cymbals. -- Vanessa: Listen, honey, we can't let her ruin her credit. We're going to have to cancel the card and pay off all her debt. Mike: Calm down, Bernanke, we're not going to bail her out. She's not too big to fail. -- Mike: Our thirtieth President Calvin Coolidge said there's no dignity quite so impressive as living within your means. Now Coolidge got to the top through hard work, frugality and the suspicious death of Warren G Harding. -- This is the second show where the airhead daughter is going to run her own fashion business out of the basement. Mandy on this one and Haley on "Modern Family."

**(The Middle, S5E18 "The Smell") Random Girl in Dorm: You know, I once broke up my boyfriend with a sculpture. Axl: So, did he understand it? Girl: Well I threw it at him, so I'm pretty sure he got the message. -- ::snort:: Mike getting roped into coaching a high school girls soccer team. I can't think of *anything* Mike could possibly like less than a gaggle of high school girls. -- I can't be bummed about Axl and Cassidy breaking up because Sue and Darrin!

**(About a Boy,  S1E5 "About a Plumber") A thousand and one ways to freak out Will: "when you marry my mom," "we're not done playing dad-minton." -- I think Will is supposed to be the least likable sort of character but I like him better than Fiona and Marcus combined.

**(Blue Bloods, S4E18 "Righting Wrongs") That guy at Erin's speed dating experience who turned out to be a defense attorney? Totally expected them to end on a date, especially because they had such terrible chemistry. -- Why is that every time a police character is told they are not to discuss a special assignment they've been given, their partners get their knickers in a twist? -- Of course Jamie solved the cold case Frank gave him. He'll be a detective sooner rather than later.

**(Mike and Molly, S4E16 "The Dice Lady Cometh") Predictability: Molly, who had never gambled before, went on a streak of beginner's luck...followed by a losing streak, and lost all her money. And then she met a mean old woman on the slot machines who won the jackpot on the machine Molly just left. -- Ewww. Joyce was wrapped up in a hotel comforter. ::gag:: Few things ick me out as much as "top side" of hotel comforters. -- Speaking of gagging. I would not be partaking in "all you can eat crab legs" at a casino in Indiana.

**(Revolution, S2E18 "Austin City Limits") What on earth is going on with Priscilla? Is she really Priscilla or is she just nanotech now? -- General Blanchard: We have a lot of work to do. I guess I should put on some pants. -- Monroe: She's from the Willoughby camp! You didn't recognize her? Miles: I wasn't looking at her face! -- Ok then. The nanotech are "borrowing" Priscilla's body. How very Fringe of them. -- Holy crap. *Another* character on a show I watch killed off. No more Jason. (Unless the nanotech can save him? I still don't understand the limits of their powers.)

**(The Good Wife, S5E16 "The Last Call ") Why do people always say things like "but I just saw him yesterday" when they learn someone has died? As if *that* could make it otherwise?! -- Alicia should not be behind the wheel of a car. Also, Alicia does a really good sad face, not so much with the crying though. And how, after all the crying, does Alicia still have any eye makeup left? -- I can't handle David Lee showing real emotions instead of douchebaggery. -- This episode captured really believable aftermath for everyone affected by Will's death. It was such a haunting, aching, bewildered, shocking, empty-feeling hour of television

**(The Mentalist, S6E16 "Violets") Jane's FBI boss has a very good sense of humor about Jane's shenanigans. -- Lisbon doesn't clean up half bad. -- Jane's most intricate and improbable schemes are always my favorite. A marching band?? Hahaha! -- Hmmm. Was that a twinge of jealousy for Patrick when Lisbon left on her pancake date?

**(Dallas, S3E4 "Lifting the Veil") Bed-headed, morning-breath John Ross? Eh, pass. -- I cannot get used to Rebecca being called Pamela. -- Every time Sue Ellen was in the same room with Emma, you couldn't melt butter in Sue Ellen's mouth. -- No one does weddings like South Fork does weddings. -- Sue Ellen is going to hit John Ross where it hurts for his affair with Emma: She's got something up her sleeve that will mess up his plans to drill on South Fork. I guess she learned something from all the times she turned her head on his daddy, after all!

**(Grey's Anatomy, S10E17 "Do You Know?") I like the way they are preparing for Cristina's exit. Seeing her play out two "what if" scenarios in her mind, how her life might play out if she moves forward with a life with Owen, or if she left things the way they are. It's something we should all ask ourselves throughout our lives, to ask the toughest questions: Do you know who you are? Do you understand what has happened to you? Do you want to live this way? It was a fresh take on how to tell the show's story and it provoked a lot of thought.

**(Dallas, S3E5 "D.T.R.") How many times can John Ross say fracking? And will I ever not laugh when he does? -- John Ross's secretary was pretty nervy, laying a hand on his arm right in front of Pamela. -- Harris being nice Ann is unsettling. -- Sue Ellen's statement to Bobby about how John Ross is like-father-like-son: "He's creating war within the family when we should be working together. There's nothing innocent about him." -- Bobby: A bug in the bourbon cork. I think even JR would see the humor in that. Sue Ellen: The family that blackmails together, stays together. -- I did *not* see Sue Ellen's nomination of Bobby coming at all! Well played!

**(Wonderland, S1E12 "To Catch a Thief") I cannot believe I am so sad that Anastasia is dead, but it's so difficult to watch the Knave be brokenhearted, now that he has his heart back. -- Bad CGI Alert: The vines that grab the guards in the Queen of Hearts' hedge maze. -- Wait. So if Amara claims to have a few tricks up her sleeve that she didn't share with Jafar when he asked her how she was freed from the staff, why did she wait til now to free herself?! -- Now Cyrus is dead too?? -- Bad CGI Alert: That final scene, when Amara and Jafar are collaborating on the spell and his eyes turn milky white.

**(Scandal, S3E16 "The Fluffer") I am trying to imagine someone actually saying "The President is definitely a baguette." -- It's about time Liv finally laid it on the table with Fitz, asking him which role she is there to perform for him, which service she will be billing him for today. He accuses her of being petty and jealous? If there is anyone who can take Fitz down a notch, it has to be Olivia...if she can hold her ground and not get caught up in a house in Vermont and promises a man can't keep. -- Jake: I miss you... Olivia: Said the spider to the fly? -- Conflicted: Am I furious with Jake about James or do I feel sorry for him because of his feelings for Olivia? -- Rowan: I'm a patient man, but a vengeful one, and I have a very long memory. -- Does Leo have the hots for Abby? -- Abby: You don't get to run. You're a gladiator. Gladiators don't run, they fight. They slay dragons, they wipe off the blood and stitch up their wounds and live to fight another day. You don't get to run. -- Could Olivia have picked a more inopportune time to shut down B613? ::slaps forehead::
