Let’s talk about Monday night’s TV!

THE VOICE: I enjoy “High Hopes,” but yikes, is that a choice for a Battle song. It did neither of the Team Blake contestants any favors.

I’m still waiting for a moment this season to absolutely knock me off my feet. There were good Blinds by the end of that round, but the Battles have been fairly forgettable.

And, I’m sorry, but the “to be continued” gimmick isn’t working. The outcome isn’t dramatic enough to be worth that!

PRODIGAL SON: It was nice to learn more about Dani—and see her absolutely handle Bright when he was accidentally high. I’m really glad we’re getting to learn more about the team.

Uh, we should 100% not trust Jessica’s new ally, right?

It was also interesting how little Martin was used in this episode. I love Michael Sheen’s work on the show, but I also think how the show handles him going forward will be very important to its long-term success. Can he, plausibly, be in every episode? (A genuine questions; I don’t know. I’ve been impressed with how they’ve handled him so far, but it’s very, very early.) Or are they going to need to save him for 2/3rds of the episodes, playing that card really only when it’s needed?

Which shows did you watch last night?
