The Plopper Reviews COVERT AFFAIRS 5.05: 'Elevate Me Later'


I can tell exactly when this episode finally started crackling for me based the spot where my notes trailed off: "AHH HAHA FUCK YES ANNIE STOLE THE KEY!!"  That's the last bulletpoint I have.

The Plopper Reviews COVERT AFFAIRS 5.04: 'Silence Kit'


Wow ... for a few minutes during "Silence Kit," I started to mentally plan out the rest of season 5, and it consisted solely of Annie surfing the web for new career opportunities, updating her LinkedIn profile and getting pissed when her profile views go down by 10% even though she just revamped the entire thing and she thought she was using all the right key words, goddamnit.  This is not me speaking from experience, by the way.  It’s just ... you know ... how I would imagine ... something like this might go.

The Plopper Reviews COVERT AFFAIRS 5.03: 'Unseen Power of the Picket Fence'


"Well that was ... an episode." - My cousin Katie.  Hahaha I mean ... first off can I just ask this question - Who in GOD'S name actually watches Royal Pains??  Anyone?  Have you ever met anyone in your life who watches that show?  Last year we had to suffer through the ends of L&O SVU eps before CA came on and I never thought I'd find myself being wistful for that time period.  At least those endings had crazy people yelling and freaking out.  Royal Pains endings are like bland people saying boring stuff, set to drowsy lame music.  What am I missing?

The Plopper Reviews COVERT AFFAIRS 5.02: 'False Skorpion'


Uhh holy shit, that just got a LOT more real, a lot more quickly, than I was expecting.  I just finished googling Myocarditis, as I'm sure a lot of you did while watching this ep.  Medical accuracy has never been a strong suit of the Covert writers, especially when it come to Annie, whose recovery from two bullet wounds to the chest in season 3 was approximately as difficult as bouncing back from a sprained ankle.  So I'm already apprehensive on this front.  Partly for that reason but partly just because I'm dying to know where this condition came from.

The Plopper Reviews COVERT AFFAIRS 5.01: 'Shady Lane'


Oh my how time flies.  Has it already been 7 months since I last wrote one of these?  There was actually a nasty rumor during the break that I had been “fired” from GeekFurious and replaced with a cat, who was going to take over The Plopper moniker.  The cat would be filmed pooping on various items (suggestion: pics of Helesa?) each week and those videos would be posted here in lieu of my normal Covert Affairs reviews.  Thank god that one turned out to be false, at least for my sake.  Whew.  I’m back baby, and I just watched the season 5 opener, “Shady Lane”.  So let’s get right to it.

Eli's 20 Biggest TV Crushes of All-Time

I could mention my usual caveat that this list will anger some people. And that you're wasting your time complaining about it because it's the most subjective ranking ever and I don't give a rats ass if you think my list is "wrong" or "stupid" or doesn't include someone that you like. Go make your own damn list that no one will read.

Assuming anyone reads this or gives a darn what I think, this list is sure to anger some people. Do me a favor and save your outrage that I left off your favorite character from your favorite TV show. Because while I'm a huge loser addicted to television, I don't watch every show out there.
