Bury the lead, please

SPOILER AHEAD — Do not read before viewing the March 22nd episode.

Okay, that’s done.

This season of The Americans has been grim, even by their standards. It has also been sadly sex-free due to its focus on Paige and our favorite spies’ campaign to recruit a Russian defector by befriending his son.

Sometimes it feels like an episode of Pretty Little Comrades.

So imagine my excitement at the halfway point when they gave us a glimpse of Martha shopping the sparse shelves of a grocery store in Russia!

And that was all of her — no other scene, mention or clue. 

Geez, guys, couldn’t you have ended the show with that scene? Everybody loves a cliffhanger. 

How I Should Have Met Your Mother

I was horrified by the series finale of How I Met Your Mother.

If you don’t know how it ended oh so many months ago, stop reading.  But suffice it to say, the last episode was like a sledgehammer to the very foundation of the show’s premise, crumbling its emotional center, its heart and its credibility.

It was awful.

Soon after the show’s creators and CBS were inundated with bad reviews and poor comments, it was revealed that there was an alternate ending that would be included on the DVD.  It has now been leaked.

It is perfect.

Whoever got to choose the version that aired?

Bad decision.
