Madame Secretary (Pilot Review)

  • Creator: Barbara Hall (Joan of Arcadia, Homeland)
  • Stars: Téa Leoni, Tim Daly, Geoffrey Arend, Zeljko Ivanek, Erich Bergen…

The Pitch: When the Secretary of State dies in a mysterious plane crash, the President of the United States Conrad Dalton appoints Elizabeth Faulkner McCord (Téa Leoni), an old friend, to the post. McCord who previously worked for the C.I.A. takes on the job and has to juggle her personnel and professional.

Review: The show is a kind of hybrid show that they’re calling it a drama but in my opinion it’s not just that. It’s light, witty, funny with a hint of drama and a touch of thriller-mystery.

It’s a serious show but Leoni brings the second degree fun element to it and that’s why I liked the show, well the pilot. I’ll go as far to say that the only thing setting this show apart from the other shows that could be compare to Madame Secretary is Leoni’s performance and the cast they assembled.

I think I’m going to watch this show, I would just like to know what do you guys think about it?

I remember the day she died, she was the first artist who I was a fan of that died so it scared me. I will watch the movie. I am very interested in seeing it.

I loved the artist but i’m not quite sure I want to know about her personal life.

Revenge (Season premiere review)

The Pitch & Review: The daughter of a framed executive makes it her mission to infiltrate upper Hamptons society and exact revenge on the people who set her father up. At least that’s what it was about, now, after four seasons of hard work Emilly Thorn (Emily VanCamp) succeeded to slay the dragon and take over the castle.

Last season’s finale had its fair chair of surprises, it was exciting, thrilling and such a good cliffhanger for what was to come. The premiere was a nice little appetizer for what’s to come this season. Emily struggles to know who she is now, Victoria is clawing her way out and someone is slithering back in. I wasn’t extremely excited by the premiere itself but I thought it was a nice set up, a reboot of sorts because there’s lots of throwbacks to the series premiere.

Did you like the episode?

Once Upon A Time (Premiere Review)



Review: I remember reading somewhere that this season’s theme is "Never give up on the ones you love." and the season premiere is certainly sticking to it. The premiere picks up right where we left off in season 3, going in the thick of the drama. We all knew that #Frozeniscoming but with all the drama going on I didn’t really know how the frozen theme would be introduced.


It was done smoothly, like snowflakes falling from the sky, Arendelle’s universe was introduced a snowflake at a time, now the ground is covered with snow. Elsa, Kristoff, and Anna are part of our Storybrooke universe and they brought baggage. The new characters have come with their share of mysteries. I loved how Elsa’s powers were translated into film and thank god they’re not singing!


The other characters were not outdone by this new world’s introduction. They all have their own little drama going on. I loved the little memorable details, the quotes and the comedy that make the show such a good one. I loved the callback to The Beauty and the Beast, it was a nice touch. The new mysteries our beloved characters came across, all of it is telling me one thing, that this season will be an interesting and exciting one.


What do you think?
