Season 2, Episode 16 Top Of The Hour
Ohhh, Sarah. Sarah, Sarah, Sarah. At first, I thought Sarah was gonna be the first client of Olivia Pope & Associates to actually keep it real and fess up to her scandal. She immediately admitted to her affair with the Supreme Court Justice nominee, and I was impressed. Cyrus lost his damn mind once she publicly confessed to the affair (on Olivia‘s advice and her husband’s urging) because this basically put their nominee at great risk. So he got a team of character assassins (I loved that) together to basically turn her story into one of those ‘crazy woman in love with a awesome guy who has no interest in her’ media frenzies. It was bad. But the worst part was that she did, in fact, lie about the affair when she stressed that it ended quickly, and oh, also left out the part where her daughter’s paternity was… um… questionable. #Awkward
Oh, and did you catch that moment at the beginning when Sarah totally assumed that Abby was Olivia Pope? LOL. Yeah. NO.
I’m still not sure about how I feel about the end of this story– when the father decided not to look at the paternity results? So sweet, so amazing, so the actions of a true ‘father,’ and yet it seemed so unbelievable! Maybe I just wanted to know what was in the envelope, but that moment really took me by surprise.
What’s in a name? In Russell’s case, the answer might be a case of mistaken identity. The inaugural show at the new gallery Osmos, run by the curator Cay Sophie Rabinowitz, features the Los Angeles painter’s realist portraits of men named Robert Russell, which are based on pictures he found on the Internet and rendered with academic panache. Despite its obvious shtick, the project succeeds as a satire of narcissism in the digital age, while deflating the myth of artistic expression as a quest for the authentic self. Through April 24.

Elementary “The Long Fuse” Review: Good Mystery! Now Quit Second-guessing Holmes and Pretending Watson’s Gonna Leave
by Lily Sparks
A round of thunderous applause before we begin! Last night’s Elementary gave us one of the better puzzles the show has put together so far, if not the best. Intricate without overwhelming detail, gruesome enough to give me a genuine chill, and plausible enough that I wasn’t cackling by the conclusion. The only real problem was knowing who the bomber was as soon as the camera landed on her: Lisa Edelstein, you sexy minx, you looked like you’d run over from the old House soundstage on the Fox lot without bothering to change costumes. If only they’d thrown in a second possibility (it only takes two horses to make a race), but they had to shoehorn in the sponsor plot this week so we merely had to watch the clock wind down on the inevitable reveal that Whatserface Van Owen was not only a ho-turned-CEO but adept at making pipe bombs. And hanging dry wall!
Don’t make this renaissance woman languish in jail, she’s too useful! She should get a double-0 spy number and put these skills to work. I seriously do love Edelstein and it must have been fun to get to play a sexy villainess who even got to flirt with Jonny Lee Miller. (Although it was very rude of him to point out the answers to her crossword puzzle. Other people besides you can enjoy a challenge, Holmes! C’mon now.)
