Jasmine Lee

Jasmine is a coffee-swilling, movie and TV quote-dropping, social media-obsessive pop culture junkie. She's previously written for ScreenPrism, MuggleNet, and Audrey Magazine. She currently wields her research skills at a tech company in Chicago. She watches at least one episode of either Friends or Cheers every night before going to bed, and she loves physical DVDs and Blu-rays just as much as she loves actual, real books (read: a lot). Her happy place includes: lots of blankets, a mug of coffee as big as her face, dependable WiFi, and hours of parsing through her favorite televsion shows and movies. Her dream leading man would be a combination of John Wick, Rory Williams, Jason Walsh, Aladdin, Tristan Thorn, and Ron Weasley.

Will & Grace recap, Season 1, Episode 5, “Grandpa Jack,” Aired October 19, 2017 Will & Jack It always boggles me how short these episodes are.

Powerless recap, Season 1 — Episode 9, “Emergency Punch-Up,” Aired Apr. 20, 2017 This episode of Powerless is a bottleneck episode!! Love those.

Powerless recap, Season 1 — Episode 4, “Emily Dates a Henchman,” Aired Feb. 23, 2017 Apparently, Two-Face can easily destroy impenetrable safes and paper bags can befuddle high-resolution, infrared cameras.

‘Powerless’ recap: 1×03, “Sinking Day”

Powerless recap: Season 1, Episode 3, “Sinking Day”, Aired Feb. 16, 2017 I’m loving Powerless‘ cold opens. In this one, we discover that “character actor” William H.

‘Frequency’ recap: 1×06, “Deviation”

Frequency recap: Season 1, Episode 6, “Deviation”, Aired Nov 9, 2016 Frequency is best, I realize, when it’s working on the Nightingale case. Unlike other procedural TV shows, Frequency is at its weakest when it tries for the “case of the week” approach.
