The Vampire Diaries Review: Killer Consequences
11/15/2012 11:08 PM
I finally agree with everything you are saying. The last couple of weeks, slamming Damon with this idea that everything he does is all "spur of the moment" and Stefan is all big picture guy, I think all of that was way off base. If anything, it's the other way around. Stefan saved Matt, spur of the moment, Stefan jumped on the Cure bandwagon spur of the moment. Big picture seems more like Damon's "I love her either way" speech from last episode. And I'm glad Stefan broke up with Elena for himself and not to protect her, which is how this has happened throughout the series up until this point. I'm loving how deeply we're exploring Elena's transition. I wish we could have seen more Caroline/Elena palling up - last episode's "She's too good at self-control" seemed like a brush-off. Agreed with the Forwood sitch, seems contrived. If Caroline can't be there for Elena, she needs to get on board with this de-siring train. Loved Klaus this episode. And revisiting Alaric briefly with the moment in the classroom and the moment at the Grill. Finally, loving Jeremy's new role, and also, Matt stepping up and doing his on digging.

Dan. The family surname is Mikaelson because Mikael was the patriarch. Typically there would have been no surname so they chose that one to fit in with contemporary times.

I think Snow's amnesia is mirroring David's. I thought Stealthy was such a plot device if ever I saw one. If he really was stealthy he wouldn't have gotten caught. I love the Stranger. He's a babe. It didn't occur to me that her wrote Henry's book and could rewrite the ending as a way of breaking the curse but GRIMM was the first thing that came to mind when i saw the typewriter. So keen for the next installment!

The first mistake was to cover Grease. You just don't take that shit on. There's no way to top it! I wanted to jump ship then. But I stuck it through until Moves Like Jagger came on. This was a waste of an episode and I totally agree with you.

I love Santana and that scene with her laughing at Brittany was absolutely breath-taking. But I love Finn and she was so much meaner in this episode than I've seen before. I feel so bad for her being outed on television. That's more than enough payback. And of course that rendition of Adele was too amazing for words.
I'm so glad about the reuniting of Rachel and Kurt. I'm pleased Rachel realised what she was sacrificing, a friend for a point on her resume, and gave Kurt what he needed most. And given Kurt's history with bullying, his stance against dodgeball definitely is a cause I'm going to back. The game itself is so much fun but as a symbol for bullying it's a good thing to attack.
Finally, Puck and Quinn. I honestly don't give a f**k about Quinn's steal the baby back plan. I was hoping that Puck coming clean and going for Selby and making a family was for real. Despite the legality of that situation, it seems a lot healthier than giving that baby to her half-formed mother. Quinn needs a wake-up call. And a cause that's pure and good. I get the rebellion. Being a good girl is an image that's easy to maintain but boring to live through. It just doesn't feel like you. It's doing what other people want. And what she said last episode about Beth being the only thing she couldn't screw up, I'm sorry but Quinn is far too young to be saying she's permanently screwed up. She just isn't willing to make the effort.
The Vampire Diaries Round Table: "Ordinary People"

What was your favorite scene from the episode?
Elena's revelation to Rebekah that her own brother had killed her mother and lied about it. I thought it would take something huge to bring R over to the goodies' side. But I can't complain about all the Defan scenes and the Delena bedroom scene at the end either.
There was no major cliffhanger: Refreshing or irritating?
Thank God, really. The seven week wait following the next biggest cliffhanger yet is going to be so much worse. I'm thankful for the slack the writers have cut us viewers.
What is your favorite Vampire Diaries flashback episode?
Katarina. I'm against all you Kat-haters out there. I think showing her at the beginning was some of Nina's best work and we also got to see the charming and noble Elijah fall in love with her a little bit. But I'm eagerly anticipating the flashback that brings us the original doppelganger. I was hoping to see her in Ordinary People.
Bigger sin: Klaus killing his own mother, Stefan preying on a beautiful bar tender, or the writers keeping Caroline off the screen for an entire hour?
Klaus killing his own mother. I get why you're mad, boy, but she's just as human as you are. Your only problem was being the proof of her shameful indiscretion.
Next week is the 2011 finale. Make one bold prediction about what's to come on it.
Rebekah changes sides and doesn't go back on her word like Elijah did in The Sacrifice. I dunno. I'm so glad I'm not writing this show. I would definitely kill it for everyone else. Love you Julie and Kevin :)
Gossip Girl Review: Chuck Bass, Out of Hell
11/8/2011 6:01 PM
I thought this episode was one of the best of the season. I find Dianna herself increasingly compelling. Where I would usually skip through the usual scenes involving her and Nate, I watched the whole thing. I thought she was just toying with him. I'm not exactly glad she's become possessive and a little overbearing but at least she gets jealous enough to do something about it. Secret relationships are only good for the privacy.
I thought Blair's bridesmaids competition was lighthearted and reminded me of why we originally fell in love with her character in season one. All her plotting and scheming, however childish, inspired such fear and intensity in her minions which has always impressed me. Remember in season 3 when we were revisited by a Penelope who'd somewhat outgrown Blair? I thought it a little inconsistent to find her grovelling again.
And I must be incredibly naive because I did not think the writers were setting up for the 4 go at Derena. I was actually enjoying them try to be friends again. I stand by Serena and her actions but sympathise with droop in Dan's book's interest by the end of the episode. Serena was right about one thing: Dan should be writing more best sellers instead of focusing on a movie.
Finally, Chuck, Blair and Louis. I'm a firm believer in Chair. I was disappointed to see Blair hit on Chuck in the new preview. I can see he's taking the steps become the man she always believed he was, while her fiance is corrupted by the thought of Chuck's former self. But I still think he has a way to go before he deserves Blair again. Plus added complications: royal wedding, royal spawn, etc.
The Vampire Diaries Round Table: "The Reckoning"

I love evil Stefan because the person we've been seeing for the last 2 seasons, while brooding and complicated, is actually quite boring, I don't care how much he loves someone. He needs to love himself for a bit. And Elena needs to love herself. Their relationship had such a co-dependency, it could never have actually lasted much longer. I hope the events of this week's episode have actually opened Elena's eyes to this. And I'm not saying this because I want Damon to step in. (Or that I don't.) I just think there are more interesting things to explore right now, and we have some great ships which are just as important - Forewood, Matt/Bonnie/Jeremy. Seriously, they are enough to fill a whole timeslot. And what I really want to see is more Originals. There are like 4 other coffins guys. If not more. If this is the season of the originals, Michael, old as he is, better not be the only one appearing for the next while (seeing as Nicklaus has run off without his doppelganger blood or hybrid buddy).

If Quinn's plan to prove Shelby is an unfit mother by getting Puck to seduce her (assuming what was shown in the promo was not genuine), that's a really lousy plan. Also, how is Brittany splitting up the family? That was so out of context it shouldn't have been in the promo. Love the costumes on Mercedes and Santana. Shouldn't have shown she agreed easily. No point in teasing that. I can't believe we have to wait 3 weeks.
The Secret Circle Review: Two Key Rules
10/13/2011 8:28 AM
Glad to see the back of the parents this ep. They may be the catalyst for all things that screw the circle over but couldn't it all just happen off-screen? Anyway, Diana is going to lose her boyfriend to destiny if she keeps shoving Cassie in the same car and sending them to creepy places together. We all know living through terrifying experiences makes you super close with your companions and as if these two needed any more encouragement. I definitely thought that since Nick was a damaged kid, what with losing both his parents in the accident, the demon would pick him, but no it went for Melissa. To be honest, at least this character will have some backbone next ep because she's pretty passive normally. Love Faye. I don't get why she's portrayed as the popular girl when she's actually the snobby alternative bitch. No one popular would ever wear that hand jewellery she always has on.

Glee Review: A Non-Asian F
10/5/2011 5:06 AM
I think the most time was spent on Mike and his story was pretty good, albeit slightly predictable. I'm glad his mum is supporting his decisions because we've seen from many other stories and TV series how oppressive a dual parent attach can be.
While I openly acknowledge how good it is that Mercedes is actually thinking of herself as a star (at the encouragement of her in-need-of-a-shave football playing boyfriend), it felt a little contrived. Even though her singing is no short of fantastic, no one ever said she could act. Maybe Rachel didn't go through a personal growth of epidemic proportions - it seems as if she's actually receded
The Secret Circle Review: Hesitant Heroes
10/3/2011 6:20 AM
I think it was this week's episode that made The Secret Circle somewhat compelling for me. Before I was watching more or less out of obligation to a Kevin Williamson series and less because of the show itself. Now I want to watch next week to see what happens. The parents made it really hard for me to empathise with their wicked ways mostly because it seemed like their love for their children was overshadowed by whatever plot they're working on. Now we know the death of one means the end of the Circle's power. So they're at least looking out for those children. As for the characters themselves, I'm more interested to know Nick and Melissa better now I've seen them grow. Cassie needed to develop a bond with the circle because I don't buy her supposed loner status. It seemed petty the only reason she didn't want to befriend any of them was because of the magic. Just as it's equally petty to befriend them because of that magic. It was good the writers developed a proper bond between her and Diana. Now she may love Adam the way she does, but I for one think the magnetism of destiny could be construed as a much more powerful love than ordinary relationship love. I know it's at her expense that this couple (with no viable ship name) would get together, but I find destiny trumps dibs. But saying that, besides being incredibly passionate and inexplicable able to bar-tend at the tender age of 16/17, he seems to have no other qualities. Boring. The Secret Circle needs a bad boy and the introduction of Luke did not provide that.

Hahaha Katniss would own this show, supes be damned.
For the record, Delena for life. But you're right, writers teasing this ship without seriously considering it even in the long run is just pathetic and annoying.
