House of Cards Season 3: Unanswered questions

Standard

By Anamika Roy

I had promised myself I would take a full week to get through this season of “House of Cards,” but the truth is, this is a show that was meant to be watched in an irresponsibly short amount of time.

The credits for episode 13 in season 3 are still rolling in another tab as I write this. That’s how badly I wanted to get my thoughts on this season off my chest, so here goes.

If you haven’t finished season 3 yet, stop reading. I repeat, STOP READING. NOW.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine S2E11: “Stake Me Out Tonight”

Standard

THE GOOD WIFE, S6E10 ROUNDTABLE: ‘Darkness at noon’

Standard

By Anamika Roy and David Oliver

Excuse us as we wipe away our tears after watching this week’s episode. IS IT JANUARY YET? Aside from Alicia threatening to stab a teacher, this week’s episode squarely focused on Cary’s trial and the results were horrifying. We watch this show for in admiration of its complex character development and storytelling. We admire its use of the law and the justice system but recognize that it is a TV show. However, this episode exposed all the uncertainties in a trial that can translate into real life. And that is what made this episode such a nail biter.
