Fringe Review: The Beginning of The End
11/6/2012 12:45 PM
Wow, this is seriously dark. Peter going crazy was well done, powerful and intense scenes, but I hope we will get normal Peter back soon. Olivia will pull him back, I'm sure of it.
When the season started, it became obvious dark times are ahead, but I wasn't ready for something like this. Too depressing. Especially after Etta died, I loved that girl so much.
It's different than "Fringe" from just a year ago... I hope we will get a happy ending after all his.
Dexter Review: Doom, Gloom and Va-Va Voom!
11/6/2012 9:50 AM
Oh, come on! No no no no NO! What happened to "I will never make that mistake again", Dex? You let Trinity and Travis live for way too long and look how great that worked out. Or you know what? Forget about Trinity and Travis, this is worse. This is Lila all over again. What the hell? One psycho bitch experiment wasn't enough?
Another great episode and awesome season so far.
Elementary Round Table: "Lesser Evils"
11/6/2012 9:38 AM
Favourite scene - the elevator scene with Jonny Lee Miller and David Costabile. Loved it.
As for Watson - it was nice to see her in her doctor's mode. I think being around Holmes will work miracles on her self-confidence.
As for the cases - yeah, they are pretty easy to figure out. But still enjoyable.
"It's better to be luck than good" - a little luck doesn't hurt, but I'm with Holmes. Only idiots rely on luck.
The Vampire Diaries Round Table: "The Five"
11/6/2012 9:23 AM
Favourite scene - Klaus, Rebekah and Stefan having a dinner party. Klaus acting like the best host ever when basically everyone hates him is beyond creepy.
Secret mission WITH KLAUS? Not a good idea. When did making a deal with that devil ever actually work? Never.
As for Rebekah - yeah, I've always felt sorry for her.
More surprising - the cure all the way. I hate it when vampire stories go down that road. When will the writers learn that vampirism is not supposed to be curable?
Delena at the frat party - I actually thought it was a pretty good idea. Frat party was the perfect cover and more importantly they were finally having fun! Stupid Bonnie...
Elementary Round Table: "The Rat Race"
10/30/2012 4:01 PM
Favourite scene - definitely Holmes' heart-to-heart with Gregson. Jonny Lee Miller blew me away in that scene. Awesome stuff.
Were you surprised that Gregson knew? Not really, but still it was beautifully done.
Have you ever been "Ambush Setup" on a blind date? No, my friends know me well enough to realize that they would not survive my revenge if they tried something like that.
As for Aaron - people don't share everything on a first date, but there is a difference between not sharing and lying. He lied. And stupidly. If he wanted to date her, didn't it cross his mind that she would've find out eventually anyway? I don't think we'll be seing him again. She's too smart for him.
Fringe Round Table: "The Bullet That Saved the World"
10/30/2012 10:40 AM
I can't believe this... I loved Etta, she was not supposed to die, ever. God, I'm going to miss her so much.
I have no idea how this will affect Peter and Olivia, but it will be huge. Losing a child is the worst thing that can happen to a parent and they've lost her twice.
Broyles can be trusted, he's one of us. I would love to see September sometime before the war is over. I would also love a trip to the other side.
What's next? The reasons are more personal now, but the goal remains the same - save the world, kill the Observers.
Dexter Review: A Storm of F@%k
10/29/2012 3:20 PM
Once again, great episode. Season 7 of "Dexter" is really freaking awesome.
Obviously Isaak will be back. Ray Stevenson was cast perfectly, he blows my mind. The scene in prison was amazing!
As for Hannah - I think Dex just wants her on his table. He didn't tell Deb, because there's nothing she can do about it. Hannah has immunity, police can't get her. And Deb just told Dexter that she doesn't want to know anything about his night job. I think suspecting he has some other motive would be reading too much into it at this point.
I love Deb, I love how she's dealing with everything, I love her talks with Dexter this season, I just totally love the two of them.
The Vampire Diaries Round Table: "The Rager"
10/29/2012 8:17 AM
Favourite scene - Damon and Klaus teaming up. Two most bad ass vampires ever, together on a mission. That's all I need to be perfectly happy.
Did Tyler cheat? First of all, it was really great to see Phoebe Tonkin again. And second of all, could any guy resist her? In the name of girl solidarity - if he cheated, he's dead to me. In the name of being relistic - I wouldn't really blame him.
More shocking - Klaus saving Connor. What the hell is "The Five"?
Stefan's book - I think Matt pretty much nailed it. "Salva-BORE", LOL :D
As for Rebekah - wouldn't everybody be damaged after a thousand years with a family like hers?
Arrow Review: Deadshot
10/25/2012 8:12 AM
Ok, I know I said that already, but this show is seriously cool.
I love Diggle and I'm so glad he knows the truth. He will be perfect as the right-hand man. I'm sure we'll soon learn more about his brother, who was clearly killed by Deadshot.
I'm not sure if Oliver really knew about Laurel and Tommy, that guy is pretty good in hiding his thoughts. But I really think we don't need this love triangle.
The IT girl scene was fun. I wonder if we'll see her on a regular basis. She's a perfect girl for Tommy, all problems solved.
Elementary Round Table: "Child Predator"
10/25/2012 7:46 AM
Favourite scene - Holmes throwing a knife at Adam's immunity deal.
Adam = Balloon Man. Yeah, I was sure after they found the recording. But I have to say Johnny Simmons pulled off a pretty good Aaron Stampler-like character.
Better sounding board for Holmes - Watson obviously, but Angus was a nice touch.
Will we see Adam again? Not any time soon, but if the show lasts long enough... who knows?
My trick for staying awake - splashing cold water all over my face. It never fails me.
Gossip Girl Round Table: "Dirty Rotten Scandals"
10/24/2012 5:37 AM
Season 6 so far - it's not completely down for me, but it's not up either at this point. Can uncle Jack come to town please? Then I'll be in.
Endgame predictions - Chair wedding will happen and that sweet mini-Chuck, as Leigh called him, will happen too. Derena will NOT happen, because it doesn't make sense anymore. If they go down that road, it will be so out of nowhere, I just hate the idea. Nate will end up happy, successful and Sage-free. Steven can stay, I don't mind him. Rufus, Lily and Bart don't interest me anymore. And Dan will see the light, otherwise I don't care what happens to him.
Gossip Girl Round Table: "Dirty Rotten Scandals"
10/24/2012 5:35 AM
Favourite quote/scene - I don't really have one. I loved "GG" in the good old days, but it was a long time ago. I guess the most interesting scene this week was when Nate confronted Dan.
Dan going dark - Humphrey is a total asshole, that much is obvious. I'm officially done with him. When Nate said he wants to hit him, I was like: YES, DO IT!
Harder to believe - both. But I honestly can't believe B and S didn't see that coming. I mean, come on! And Sage needs to die. She's only taking precious screen time. Such a waste.
More uncomfortable couple - why Nate wants to be with Sage is beyond me, but Rufus and Ivy make me sick. Rufus is so ridiculously stupid, I can't even comment on that.
What will Blair and Chuck find? I don't care as long as they stop being ridiculous and just be together, because this whole thing is getting seriously boring.
Dexter Review: Being Human
10/22/2012 3:52 PM
Amazing episode. I agree that Speltzer made it extremely easy for Deb to make the first step towards accepting Dexter, but I don't think that Trinity of all people would make it harder. He might have been an exemplary citizen, but he killed Rita and was responsible for Lundy's death too. Trinity was way more personal than some sick guy killing strangers.
I love this show for not walking away from important issues, like Rita and Harrison. Deb is amazing. And it's great to see how much Dexter cares about their relationship.
Hannah is still creepy. She will end up on the table, I'm sure of it. Isaak works for me as a villain. I have no idea where this whole Russian mob thing will go from now, but it scares the shit out of me.
The Vampire Diaries Round Table: "Memorial"
10/22/2012 7:03 AM
More heroic this week – Tyler all the way. He was the only one Connor knew about, so going up there he knew he would be taking the magic bullet for the team.
Who I miss the most? Seriously? How can you miss anyone more than Alaric?
The Vampire Diaries Round Table: "Memorial"
10/22/2012 7:01 AM
Favourite scene – OMG, how about the entire episode? It was insanely good. Of course number one has to be the final scene, Damon talking to Alaric's grave. Yeah, I cried... Also, the entire memorial scene was incredible. Especially the moment when they realized it's a trap. Also, as a major Delena fan, I loved the scene with Elena feeding on Damon. So hot and intense. I wish they would just stop teasing us already, because it's becoming hard to watch.
Connor will probably be awesome villain. Villain that we actually hate, since it didn't really work with Klaus.
Elena was wrong not to tell Stefan about her blood problem, but I can't take Stefan's whining anymore. When will he learn that sometimes you need to go the hard way? By trying to avoid that he's actually complicating everything.
Arrow Review: Legally Resurrected
10/18/2012 1:56 PM
Yeah, this is still good :)
Laurel grew on me a bit, I might like her one day. Thea trying to get closer to her brother was nice, but comparing her hell with Oliver's hell was a little ridiculous. In one thing she's right though - he needs someone he can open up to. He followed that advice by opening up to Laurel a little and it was actually nice to watch.
Diggle is awesome, he's definitely figuring out what's going on. I think Laurel and possibly Tommy too are sensing something weird as well. Ollie is acting like two different people, there's no way they don't see he's putting on a show. Detective Lance is pissing me off a bit. Focus, man!
Favourite quote of the week - Ollie: "Shouldn't take you very long. I'm shallow". I'm totally in love with Stephen.
Castle Round Table: "Murder He Wrote"
10/17/2012 3:40 PM
Favourite scene - when Ryan was interrogating Lerner and realized that Castle is Beckett's boyfriend. The look on his face was priceless :D
Is Kate feeling guilty? Yeah, there is a little guilt.
Why did Ryan chose to keep their secret? I cannot believe he didn't tell Espo! It's very admirable that he kept it to himself, he's a truly great friend. But Ryan & Esposito are the best besties ever. I was sure that whichever one finds out first, he will immediately tell the other.
Beckett's ex-boyfriends - my favourite was definitely Demming, he was such a cool guy. Least favourite - Josh. God, I hated him.
One thing I would add to the episode - I'm totally with Christine. If Beckett came clean about how she felt two years ago, it would be amazing.
Dexter Review: Necessary Evil
10/17/2012 1:10 PM
I loved every second of this episode. I loved that Dex didn't try to lie his way out and was honest with Deb about the way he's doing his thing.
About halfway through the episode I was sure the bold guy will kill someone and that will be a turning point for Deb. It can't happen overnight, but the first step was made. Deb still believes in good and evil, but admits Dexter was right that not every evil is equally bad.
I also loved the scene when Dexter and Isaak met. Irony is one of the things this show used to do great. Their entire conversation was one of those moments.
As for Hannah - @Nisan, I agree with you. She's the brains. That girl totally creeps me out. Come on Dexter! Where is your lizard brain now?
One last thing: I will definitely NOT miss Louis.
Gossip Girl Round Table: "High Infidelity"
10/17/2012 10:19 AM
Favourite quote - Nate: "I broke up with you, because I thought you were sleeping with your father... before I knew he was your father" :)
Most surprising - Nelly Yuki. Central Park Conservancy is one of the least surprising things Serena was allowed to do.
Least surprising - still Bart. That guy has "I'm hiding something" written all over him, people should know better by now.
Nate & Dan - this is "GG", obviously something is going to ruin that. I'm just hoping Nate will come out on top, he's one of the few characters left that I still care about.
Who will last longer - S&S. I actually like Steven. Sage is just a spoiled little girl with dad issues and Nate doesn't have time for that.
Waldorf Designs & Chair - yes and no. Queen B will make her mom proud eventually, but Chair really needs to stop with their bullsh!t. They keep doing that over and over again, it's stupid and boring.
Which character would you most like to creepily watch sleep? Obviously Nate, no contest.
Fringe Review: What Makes A Hero?
10/14/2012 11:06 AM
I actually liked this episode. In the previous two there was so much action and no time for characters to interact with each other. I was waiting for the show to slow down a bit and let those people actually TALK about how they are dealing with everything. I mean, come on, they just woke up in a totally different world and met aduld Etta. It's freaky.
Now we finally know something about what happened to Olivia after Etta disappeared and I think it's great. There should be more stuff like that on "Fringe", instead of focusing all the time we have left on war with the Observers.
I like the skin disease too, because it reminded me a little bit of the good old days, when Fringe team was dealing with creepy cases. I missed that.
The Vampire Diaries Round Table: "Growing Pains"
10/13/2012 7:37 AM
Favourite moment - Delena confrontation after she turned, when Damon told her that he would save her first and let Matt die. Come on, isn't it obvious to her by now? He said it many times before - he will always put her first.
I also absoulutely loved the scene when Caroline and Klaus/Tyler were about to get some action and he went: "Easy love. Wrong time, wrong place, wrong equipment" :D
Also @Steve - LOL :D
Better Klaus - Michael Trevino was pretty good as Klaus, but only Joseph Morgan can really BE Klaus.
Scarier moment - Elena all the way. That was just creepy...
Why did the Pastor blow himself and the Council up? Because the writers thought that was the quickest way to get the Council problem out of the way and move on to the hunter.
Will Elena really stick with Stefan? No way in hell.
Sons of Anarchy Round Table: "Orca Shrugged"
10/12/2012 9:50 AM
Favourite scene - I'm with Christine, the "Irish discussion" was awesome. Jax is acting like a real leader and he proved that to Galen in that scene.
Walton Goggins as Venus - O M G... My first reaction was: "ARE THEY FOR REAL?". Man, that was freaking HILARIOUS :D and watching Tig's behaviour was just priceless :D the two of them totally made my day. I only have one concern - watching the next season of "Justified" is gonna be interesting. Every time Boyd will show up on the screen, I will see the image of Venus in my mind.
Gemma and Nero - I'm not sure if he's able to pull it off, but I really hope he does.
Gemma and Tara - we definitely need a break from their fights, so I'm saying: friends.
Jax and Hale - I have faith in Jax. All the faith in the world.
Arrow Review: A Man in a Green Hood
10/11/2012 7:35 AM
Wow, that was so cool. I think I just developed a huge crush on Stephen Amell. He looks insanely good... The scene where he was shooting at the tennis balls - awesome!
As for the other characters: I really like Thea, there's a lot of room here for a great brother-sister relationship. I don't care much for Laurel yet. Tommy is great, but I could do without the whole "the best friend falls for the ex-girlfriend" cliché drama. Can't the best friend ever just be the best friend? I very much like the bodyguard guy too.
The whole story here is great - father leaving his son a list of people as his last will and the son making it his life's mission to take them out one by one. We've already had some great action in the first episode, so I have a feeling it will be awesome show.
Castle Round Table: "Secret's Safe With Me"
10/10/2012 4:56 PM
Favourite scene - nothing can really beat the epic handshake scene. But I think I'm gonna go with Castle having his "the butler did it" moment. How awesome was that?
Gates collecting dolls - that was hilarious! And the scene when she was all excited about "Frozen Heat" was hilarious too, I rewound it like 15 times. I think the deep freeze is back now, but at least Castle knows now that she CAN soften.
Most emotional moment? All of the above. Castle and Alexis especially moved me, beacause I always was and still am my dad's little girl. I remember the day when I started university and my parents dropped me off at my new apartment.
Ryan vs Espo - they will both find out from Lanie.
Fringe Round Table: "In Absentia"
10/10/2012 7:53 AM
Etta's personality - I think she's very much like Olivia and very much like Peter. All of them know what it's like to do what's necessary. Only Etta has to do it more often, because she's forced by the world she lives in. And that reminds me a lot of Fauxlivia actually.
Has motherhood changed Olivia? I think she's acting different towards Etta. I feel like she's being extra careful around her.
How long until Peter and Olivia find their way back to each other? It already happened, they just don't have time for that right now. The world will not save itself.
The fate of Simon - that is so not what I wanted. He was supposed to be part of the team soon... But Etta's reaction was awesome to watch.
Searching for puzzle pieces - depends on how long it will take. I don't want it to be too quick and easy, but it shouldn't take the whole season either.
