When TwoCents was started by KP back in 2007, it was a site for opinions on anything – movies, music, comics, world views, television and more.
Over the past 5+ years, the dedicated family of volunteers behind TwoCents has focused only on the news, reviews, interviews and more about the world of Television.
Gearing up for Fall TV 2013-2014, it is my great pleasure to launch TwoCentsTV.com! The same great coverage – just at a new home with a new name and a new look.
Please head on over there and check out our new ‘address’. Of course, we’re always VERY interested in what you have on your mind – so, share your TwoCents about it with us.
This current page will remain live as our archive database.
Thank you to all our readers for the years here at TheTwoCents, we know we’ll make you even more happy over at TwoCentsTV.com!
All my best,

Tonight’s series finale of the show that turned a John Hughes’ favorite into a primetime star and brought out the demons of a once wonderful actor has been a dozen weeks of pain and suffering that should’ve ended when they killed off the main character. While a few new additions were brought in to make things better, it was just a bandaid on something that needed major surgery.
After being hit by a train while on his honeymoon with his stalker Rose (digest that for a moment…), Alan is left homeless when Charlie’s house goes up for sale. Continue reading

One thing about superheroes is that they would be heroic people even without their powers. For example, Superman would still fight for truth and justice by being Clark Kent, award-winning investigative reporter. Powers don’t make you a hero — caring about people makes you heroic. That’s a good thing for Barry since Barry loses his speed while dealing with a villain.
There’s a philosophical divide that crops up in the episode: caring for humanity as a whole versus caring for individuals. While they are not mutually exclusive, it’s an interesting question. Is one more important than the other? Is it better to care about everyone but no individuals or a few individuals?

Welcome to The Flash! Barry Allen is the Fastest Man Alive! Personally, this is my dream show — The Flash is my favorite fictional character. I’ve had high hopes for the show since it was announced and the pilot did not disappoint! (Yeah, there are a bunch more exclamation points. I’m excited! And this show is off to a great start!)

“Come back in the evening, I’ll have the door locked to keep out the wild huntsmen.”
Hello Wesen lovers. It’s been a while. Wish I could say I’ve been hanging with a Grimm and seeing the Wesen of the world but, alas, real paying work got in the way of my Grimm recap and reviews. Since being in the 1% is still an unfulfilled dream, I had to forsake writing about my Monroe love. Now I’m back and ready to gush over my favorite Blutbad.

Come Blow Your Horn
Original Air Date: Nov 13, 2013
Vincent C. – Sr. Reviewer
And the frame-ups keep on coming. This time, Miles is framed for setting off the bomb in Willoughby from last week. Ed Truman makes an announcement to the town revealing that Stu is really Miles Matheson. Truman also says that Aaron Pittman was Miles’ accomplice in the bombing. It’s not entirely clear that the townspeople believe the accusations, since later on in the episode, nobody in town is cooperating with the Patriot troops. I’m sure “Stu” made at least some friends during this few months in Willoughby. But then again, that could be because nobody in town really knows were Miles and crew are hiding out. Gene is seen at Truman’s side, saying that his daughter and granddaughter were innocent in the whole thing and were also duped by Miles.
Monroe and Aaron are waiting at the boatyard for Miles. It was the spot they agreed to meet. However, Miles, Rachel and Charlie are still inside Willoughby. Rachel insists they have to kill Horn in order to protect Aaron.

Last Sunday presented us with a conflict filled episode. Emily and Nolan argued about Jack’s involvement with Emily’s revenge scheme. Jack and Nolan argued about Emily, both finally revealing to each other that they are part of Emily’s inner circle. Conrad and Victoria had their fortune returned to them, just as Conrad found out that Patrick had been responsible for tampering with his car, causing the accident. In order to save Patrick, Victoria sent him away.
“Resurgence” was a little tamer than last week. We start with Emily and Aiden discussing their future while taking a raft out to a buoy to plant a box of materials that, we are to presume, will be instrumental in Emily’s “end game”.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D

Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement Logistic Division. I first heard the name uttered by an guy in an ill-fitting suit in the Iron Man movie. I dug deeper and learned that S.H.I.E.L.D has been around forever in the Marvel Universe, but Agent Coulson was created to represent that organization in the movies. Despite dying in the Avengers movie, he’s back and he’s as awesome as ever. I look forward to seeing what he and his team get up to every week.
Speaking of his team, let me take you through the pilot, which expertly introduces us to each member whilst also delivering action, drama and humor in a pilot which had me chuckling, flailing and eager for more.

We’re at the halfway point of the second half of season five and we’re digging ourselves deeper into the end. All I know is, anything and everything is fair game and everyone should keep a good watch behind themselves.
We pick up after last week’s episode ended with Jesse dousing the White house in gasoline. Walt drives up his street and notices Jesse’s car there and knows it’s not good. So naturally, Walt sneaks into the house from the backyard, with his vending machine gun in hand. He goes through the sliding glass door that I’m surprised wasn’t locked, notices the gas can, and a gas soaked rug before even calling out for Jesse to show himself. Walt lurches down the hallway, but alas, no Jesse. Walt goes to Jesse’s car, sees the drugs, but Jesse is totally MIA.
Top Chef Masters
Mindy Kaling and Yo Gabba Gabba

Mindy! Kaling! Yo! Gabba Gabba! But you knew that from the title of the episode, didn’t you? Unfortunately for us, the two do not appear at the same time. However, Mindy is a lot of fun and the Yo Gabba Gabba characters delight and entertain dozens of kids who invade the kitchen.
The downside for the chefs is the prospect of a double elimination in the Elimination Challenge. (One elimination for each Gabba?)
