The Vampire Diaries is doing okay... it's just that it feels like it constantly spins the storyline in the same circle. The love triangle is getting old. I was a fan of Elena and Stefan but the whole Jerry Springer brother storyline was a bit much. There's plenty of loud fans for Damon and Elena and the show went toward that (I've heard it also happens that way in the books) so.. leave it at that. The back and forth is monotonous. Meanwhile, The Originals. THIS is where it's at. Now, all they need to do is bring Caroline over. Get her enrolled in a University. A scene where she learns Klaus will be a father. Her constant tug of war with loving somebody who kills like it's no big deal. Klaus having to know that she's also one of his weak spots making him more vulnerable to Marcel. Also, I'm not hating the idea of Hayley and Elijah. ;)
I hope it's not a main character... god forbid Ted because we started guessing there might possibly be a death with the mother. And now we're being punished for thinking up such a storyline! I'm in team Robin and Ted. I've watched every ep since it first aired and I've just never understood what fans see in Robin being with Barney. It's sweet but it's not Ted. When the show ends... I'll still be all "nope, it should've been Robin".
Such a better episode than whatever the hell it was we watched last week. That last scene of Peggy was perfect.
(Cont...) I actually liked the gray area of falling for your ex-husbands brother because it's a further aspect of the show that touches on a topic that's frowned upon. You don't fall for your ex-husbands brother but the show dragged us into understanding who these two individuals were and their own struggles with the idea of liking each other. Before you knew it, we found ourselves understanding their situation which many of us, wouldâ€™ve previously judged and dismissed as unthinkable. The show could actually be really good, with a lot of depth but it unfortunately went to a whole new place this season :(
This will sound silly but I honestly gave up watching this show quite a few episodes back... when Riley started to take a back seat, and Kyle in prison became the main focus of the show bla bla bla. However, I really enjoyed season one so every now and then I'll find myself clicking on the latest review to see if the show has got its guts back. It hasn't. I really loved this show when it started because there was something about a lead female character finding herself in a horrible situation, provided an inappropriate solution, and taking it to provide for her and her kids. The writing forced viewers to watch the gray areas in an individualâ€™s life and not everything be so black and white. This season, Riley's character just isn't somebody I want to cheer on. I wish she wouldn't have been handed ownership of the spa so easily because there was no real life struggle there. Writing Kyle back into her life was just a further easy solution to 'piecing broken things back together'.

Such a terrible episode. I used to love that Mad Men sucked you back into a completely different interesting time with interesting characters, that they placed a spotlight on all of the flaws at the time and incorporated events of the decade either discreetly or obviously. However, this episode was just nonsense and incredibly tiresome, recycling everything they've already touched on. The flashback definitely felt like a waste of time. Even the conversations between the family in the lounge room felt like they were just repeated past conversations... under new circumstances. I swear the writers behind the show have ironically run out of ideas because we're slowly just watching each male character provided a cheating storyline and recycled past story lines dragged out. Even the promos have become increasingly odd.
Such a great finale. Loved the twist at the end with Watson. Just a side annoyance though... was it really necessary to explain to viewers what pi is when Sherlock (one of the "best detectives the world has ever seen") made a witty reply to Watson (a Doctor, so you gather she's aware of basic mathematics) about his pain factor being "pi"? It was just such a great, witty, Sherlock line destroyed because the writers felt the viewers wouldn't understand it. :/
"Let's just say this, when Steve Carell's face - and greyed hair - showed up on screen, I'm glad I was watching alone, because the amount of emotion I let out was not flattering. It was an array of feelings. I felt excited that Michael was there. I felt happy that Dwight had his favorite person in the world at his wedding. I felt proud of Jim for organizing the whole thing for his good friend Dwight. And I of course felt sad that a moment this good may never happen on television again." - Totally agree. The selfish part of me wants to point out that it needed more Michael Scott but I also get it... this was for the rest of the cast, especially that core group who we've loved from the Pilot and stayed with us to the very last episode. I'm so sad I won't get to laugh at stupid relatable moments perfectly described through a scene in The Office. I'm going to miss these characters so much.
* ...directly outside the hospital and all.
I had to laugh when Christina started rattling off ALL of the things Meredith had survived. All I could think was that a c-section in the dark was getting added to that long, over the top list, and how long that list will eventually be seasons from now... a minute later. :D Also, I actually wasn't shocked by Webbers death. Only because once he walked into the room full of generators and water, with sparks flying, I knew we were focussing on it for more than just discovering Frank, the man in charge of generators ;) It was also a bit of a "yep... he's definitely dying" because they gave him that moment earlier with Christina where we got to remember why he's such an awesome constant character in the show. The only thing that truly took me by surprise and had me in tears was that scream April let out when she thought Jackson had died. When she went to him in the hospital room though - he seemed so distant. Maybe he was just in shock... bus crashing and blowing up directly outside the hospital and all.
