I didn't enjoy a lot of the racist (white eyeliner to write on Zayday, over-the-top portrayals of stereotypical black women via the security guards, "white mammy") humor...or some of the other humor that teetered on the edge of funny and insulting. Having just watched Scream on MTV (a show that is a bit campy but incredibly good), I am having trouble swallowing this show. Perhaps I will have to adjust my perception of it as an entirely satirical show (a la a Saturday Night Live sketch) rather than trying to find plot and character relationships to care about. I wonder if I will actually enjoy it if I watch it from that perspective? Also, I do not believe Chanel #2 got the tweet out ;-)
I tried so hard to watch this, as I thought I would love it as much as GOT or Outlander. I just couldn't get through the episode, however. While I know it was entirely realistic, the extremely poor hygiene and rotting teeth were too much for me. The Baron on the privy while talking, the servant wiping him, Maddox flaying a man.....I just couldn't get past all of those things to appreciate the story-line. Bummer, because I suspect it is very good!
Weird, weird show. I thought I wouldn't even bother watching again, but the end sort of had me interested. A lot of really crass jokes and strangle humor mixed with horror. I don't think I "get" it.
Totally agreed on True Blood. In the books, at least, Bill lives on and Sookie ends up dating Sam. And even that was a crap ending in my opinion.And HIMYM...ugh, so bad!
Booooo, video blocked by Warner Brothers!
Damon on the clock tower was a sight to behold! Though, I'm not excited for the heretics at all. The Original family was important to the vampire lore. This seems like a way to create a new evil or "big bad".
-Maybe the heretics CAUSED post-apocalyptic Mystic Falls?! -I think the convo placement was interesting. It almost seemed as if what Stefan was saying to Caroline was also what Damon felt about Elena. - LOVED the feathers, Stelena's hike, the moment with Matt on the bridge....great, great callback moments indeed!
I am left with questions.... Now, the Bonnie and Elena link thing is actually from the books, right? Though, I think it all plays out differently from what I have heard. However:1. How the crap were the humans and non-vamps getting into Elena's head? She's not a vampire. Only vampires can do that mind trick, right? Caroline helped Bonnie, which made sense, but the rest had no explanation! 2. Is Elena just in a state of suspended animation...she'll wake up her 20-something year old self when Bonnie dies? 3. Elena doesn't need to breath? Or have nutrition? Nothing??? The whole coffin thing... I mean, is she just FROZEN? 4. What if Stefan, Damon and Caroline get staked or bitten by a wolf while Elena slumbers? How will she get out if no one knows she is there? 5. Werewolf venom is just magic, eh? It can be siphoned away? Interesting that it just comes up NOW. 6. Does the show time-jump based on the ending? How far into the future? All that confusion aside, there were some great moments and other interesting bits:* I did like that Stefan discussed the importance of his relationship with Elena and how the main factor was that it led him back to his brother. It puts a new perspective on Stelena and allows us to let it go, in a way. * Elena's moments with Alaric, Matt, Bonnie and Jeremy (those she would never see again) were heart-wrenching. * Damon's beheading of Kai was incredible....so badass I rewound it, twice. * Part of me thought Jo and the babies would be saved. Why did no one offer her vamp blood?? Then again, she would have died anyway when Kai died. I am not necessarily sad to see the Gemini storyline gone.*Although the final dance scene was very over the top, I liked that the sort of started it like they did in their season 1 dance scene at the Miss Mystic Falls pageant... After seeing the way it ended, I am actually thinking that next season might not be as bad as I thought!
Yes! The was driving me crazy!! I thought only vampires could do that mind trick. So, how did Tyler and Matt get in her head without the help that Caroline gave Bonnie??
And, seriously, I forgot about half of these... They weren't even make villains! Each season had one or maybe two primary villains, and those villains have been:Damon (Season 1)Katherine (Season 2, various times throughout seasons)Elijah (beginning Season 2)Klaus (Seasons 2 & 3, various times throughout seasons)Original family (Seasons 3 & 4)Esther (Season 4?)Mikael (sort of, for Klaus)Silas (Season 5?)Travelers (current)
