The Plopper Reviews COVERT AFFAIRS 5.10 'Sensitive Euro Man'


Oh this goddamn show.  I just don't even ... I was SO into this ep for the first 40 minutes.  Like fully, 100% on board and having fun.  Well alright fine 100% is an exaggeration.  I was annoyed about Caitlyn being the obvious culprit, but let's say I was still 90% on board.  And then it got ... AGGH.  I need to collect my thoughts for a hot minute so that this doesn't turn into one long rant.

The Plopper Reviews COVERT AFFAIRS 5.06: 'Embassy Row'


Jesus H, it's a damn good thing Annie was such a badass spy in last week's ep, because she sure as hell was tripping all over her own two feet a lot of the way through "Embassy Row".  She stumbled and bumbled her way to the finish line after having spent the entire second half of the ep being quite literally physically dragged by one dude or another to places unbeknownst to her until - whoopsie daisy!! - she somehow just, found herself there.

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?
