Erin Fox


Trojan Horst

Hello, my friends. I'm back to recap episode four! Episode three has been recapped and is posted below if you need to catch up.We start at some weird sculpture in the desert. A man meets (the fabulous) guest star Dave Foley to discuss offing someone in exchange for money. Dave's got a ton of medical issues for a hitman including diabetes and asthma. But I guess that never stopped a con man assassin before! Actually, it seems as thought Dave's just kinda the middleman — meaning he doesn't do the killing — someone named "Lola" does. Dave takes the money from the man who turns out to be an FBI agent. Busted!Cut to: His WITSEC ID, which is "Pending." Mary walks into the office with a bunch of fancy coffee drinks, and Marshall immediately asks, "Who died?" Hee. He insists she's not a "treater"; so she promptly asks him for $3.50. Stan calls them in for a meeting, so Mary tells Marshall to collect four bucks for his coffee. She then spots a letter to Marshall from a security a... read more

Never the Bride

Hey gang, today you're getting a special treat, two for one recaps! First up ("Never the Bride") is the episode that will go down as the one that was supposed to make Mary look "hot," but ended up making her look like a caricature of a Vegas stripper. I'm not quite sure if we're supposed to think she looks ridiculous... she's clearly out of her comfort zone in this Brandi-inspired getup, but suddenly every male in the episode loses the ability to speak once they sees Mary's magical boobs. Calling hair and makeup! Time for a do-over! She looked more like a hooker than someone who's had a "hot" makeover. She was more of a "hot mess." I'm sorry to go on about this, but it did bug me. On to the show! We start off in Hawaii, six months ago with a couple making out in a hammock. Missy Pyle (how awesome is she!) plays a newly married wife who begs her husband to stop his "deals" while on their honeymoon, and forever after. She says it's immoral and dangerous and she doesn't care about the ... read more

Hoosier Daddy

Howdy everyone! Hope you enjoyed the recap of the pilot. Let's get the second episode party started, shall we?We start with a little boy playing with a remote controlled boat in his backyard swimming pool. When his toy gets stuck, he gets out of the pool, only to hear a struggle inside his house. He creeps in, feet still wet, to find his parents and some other scary looking dudes arguing. His mom tries to call the cops, and a man pulls a gun. The boy screams "Mom!" and a shot rings out. The mom collapses, leaving the boy screaming. We don't know who fired the fatal shot.We cut to a shot of the boy's new identity: Lonny McRoy is now "Leo Billups." We find out that the boy's father, Vernon, is a huge drug trafficker — and that he along with Luis and Jaime Cruz are accused of murdering Lonny's mom, Elizabeth. Lots of names; are you still with me? Cool. Mary and Marshall look at the crime scene photos, while Stan explains that Lonny is entering the program by himself — not to ... read more

Pilot

Hi there, it's Erin Fox here... (insert Troy McClure voice)... You may know me from such blogs as, Battlestar Galactica, American Idol and Saturday Night Live. I thought I'd try out a brand new show for a change and maybe less people will rip on me for whatever is irking them that day. I know I'm deluding myself, but just let me hold on to the dream. So, I know tonight's episode is the third one of the season, but I wanted to post a recap of the pilot for those who may have some catching up to do. I'll be writing up the second and third episodes tomorrow, and much more succinctly than the first one outta the gate. The first one is all about getting you situated with Mary and her crazy sidekicks and cohorts. Let's get started.Meet Mary Shannon (Mary McCormack): She's tough, smart, funny, sexy and doesn't f--k around. She also packs some serious heat as a U.S. Marshal for the WITSEC program, or Witness Protection for all us non-Marshal speaking folk. She has a sarcastic partner named ... read more

"Revelations"

and the Emmy goes to Edward James Olmos Mary McDonnell Ron Moore Battlestar Galactica Thunderous applauseOK Im getting a little carried away but after thinking about this past season of strike-invaded TV I still feel that Battlestar Galactica is the best show on TV It may not have been the allegorical genius of Seasons 1 2 and 3 but no show wins an Emmy for the year that they actually deserve it Yes thats aimed at YOU Emmy voters Get it right for once But the last episode of the sigh how annoying will this wait be first half of Season 4 was as satisfying emotionally as it was story wise At least it was for me After the fade to black and credits the only thing running through my mind was Holy Mother Frakker That was one hell of a finale no I actually watched it at my hotel off some Asian website so thanks to them for allowing me to see it before I got home from Austin Judging from early comments most of you seemed to really enjoy it wit read more
