The Fosters (S04E10): “Collateral Damage”

Review:  After what has been one of, if not the strongest seasons The Fosters have delivered, the mid-season finale most certainly followed suit. I’ll be speechless if they do not get renewed for a fifth season; between the drama, the story development, the writing and the acting, the entire team at The Fosters have elevated…

The Fosters (S4E09): “New York” 

Review: We all know that the penultimate episode of any television show will always deliver some type of cliff-hanger. The Fosters, however, goes above and beyond, delivering story cracking twists and turns that have the audience so intoxicated. This week was no different with an episode full of flashbacks, love, drama and honesty. Titled “New…

The Fosters (S04E08): “Girl Code”

Review: This week’s episode of The Foster’s contained all things robotics but it wasn’t without some drama, some loving and some heartbreak. With Season 4 quickly approaching its mid-season finale, you can sense a feeling of anticipation and anxiety as quite a few of the characters are meeting, head on, personal challenges. Titled “Girl Code”,…

The Fosters (S04E07): “Highs and Lows”

Review:  This week’s episode of The Fosters delivered a rousing exploration into the ongoing ebb and flow of life and its emotions. As we saw last week, each member of the Adams Foster clan has their own challenges and personal dilemmas occurring. Titled “Highs and Lows”, this week’s installment opened, beautifully directed and edited together…

The Fosters (S04E06): “Justify” 

Review:  We all know that The Fosters pushes the envelope, they dare to talk about issues and express opinions that often times we keep to ourselves in our day to day lives. They dare to tell stories, that aren’t fiction but reality, and this season they’ve gone above and beyond. This season has already explored…

The Fosters (S4E05): “Forty” 

Review: Happy 40th Lena Adams Foster (Sherri Saum)! This week’s episode was celebrating all things 70’s as the extended Adams Foster clan came together to honour one of our favourite Mama’s. Titled “Forty” the episode opens on the entire family, Dana and Stewart included, getting ready to enjoy dinner. The banter is witty and light,…

The Fosters (S4E04): “Now for Then”

Review: What The Fosters has perfected, four seasons in, is exploring social issues is the most subtle of ways but with a poignancy that resonates with us all. Throughout this week’s episode, quite a few of our characters are seen to be dealing with past experiences, haunting in nature, still very much a part of…

Interview with Sherri Saum (The Fosters)

I recently had the honor of interviewing Sherri Saum, best known for her role as Lena Adams Foster in The Fosters, the incredibly popular, beautifully crafted and socially poignant family drama. Sherri spoke about how it has been to inhabit a character like Lena, the pride she feels knowing that every day, in one way…

The Fosters (S4E03): “Trust”

Review:  Three episodes in and The Fosters are going from strength to strength on all fronts this season. From giving a continued voice to issues of social relevance with fearlessness and poignancy, to exploring the dynamics of family relationships, The Fosters Season 4 is leaving no stone unturned. This week’s episode, aptly titled “Trust”, follows…

The Fosters (S4E02): “Safe”

Review:  On the back of last week’s Season 4 premiere, which saw Anchor Beach go into lockdown after Nick (Louis Hunter) was believed to be inside with a gun, the Adams Foster family returned home understandably shaken. The Fosters continued to explore the issue surrounding gun safety and gun control this week, with Nick having…

The Fosters (S4E01): “Potential Energy”

Review: Timely. Heartbreaking. Relevant. The Fosters premiere was a piece of television so important, so visceral and so devastating, shining a light on the terrible nature of school lock-downs. In the wake of the Orlando shooting, The Fosters included a short tribute to those lost, by reminding us all that love will always conquer hate….

The Fosters: (S3E19) “The Show”

Review: It is safe to say that this week’s episode of The Fosters, titled “The Show”, aligned with other television events such as Grey’s Anatomy’ “Song Beneath the Song”, in that there was not a dry eye when the closing credits rolled around. Some people may have called it a risk, to have coupled a…
