New Girl Review: It's Jess!
9/24/2011 12:10 AM
Not a big Zooey fan, so the constant singing was getting a touch annoying, (like that SNL gag with that woman), but otherwise, it was one of the better comedy pilots.
Nick's face alone is half the joke right their. Schmidt is too much like Ralphio, though.Sad that they're replacing Wayans. They have a nice four musketeers vibe. Like Tina fey with Baldwin cut into three.
Hoping it keeps it up!

The Vampire Diaries Round Table: "The Hybrid"

1. Fav scene - Klaus and STefan converting the pack
2. Triangle? - Damon keeps trying to make it a triangle but it's really just a line from Stefan to ELena
3. I hate Vicki and everything she says and does... Matt too
4. We love all things Alaric. If they could tone down the proportion of Delena shipping and Matt-Jeremy bonding and give other characters a little screentime (Bonnie, maybe?) that'd be swell
5. Psyched for some HRG parenting.

This is why Bonnie gets annoying. She's missing from 2 episodes so far, not even a phone call in this one, and then she's going to pop up with-
Elena: she's like a sister to me (though she misses my birthday party)
Bonnie: I'll do my deus ex machina spell to save you, my sister
Come on, they find a way to work Matt and Vicki - the most painfully boring people ever - into an episode and not the witch with the power of a 100 witches who's going to wind up do the big spell to save the day?
Anyhow HRG as Caroline's dad! Didn't see that coming even though it made sense afterwards,the convo with him and tyler's mom.
When Vicki said that she could come back I nearly cried, the terror.
Nice seeing Alaric back in action.

Ringer Review: "She's Ruining Everything"
9/21/2011 8:40 PM
Slower than the pilot but still good. Starting to sense that she's going to really try to push the angle of her fitting in to Siobhan's life and be the perfect mother/wife/adulteress, but I hope they keep it on the back-burner to the mystery angle.
Flashbacks to the alcoholic days not really necessary as we get what is meant by 'alcoholic' so unless this is sponsored by AA they could kinda tune down the addict angle.
Nestor popping up for five minutes per episode is cruel.
Glee Season Premiere Review: They've Got the Beat!

Too much Rachel. As always. Puck had not one line... (did he?) And Mercedes... How's this guy who's actually bigger than her? Don't like that pair-up at all. Cringe-worthy.
The BF of Kurt actually getting a storyline outside of being the BF of Kurt would be interesting. He should take over Glee Club from this lethargic looking Finn.
TV Ratings Report: Series High for Two and a Half Men
9/20/2011 8:56 PM
The people who didn't like it before might like it now, but the things completely different. First half of the episode was like a funeral for the whole series so far. Second half for new followers... If you hated Charlie (either Harper or Sheen) and wanted to spit on his casket, then enjoy.
This'll be the first time I ever not follow up on a 'to be continued'.

They started with Bonnie and just went with it. At first it was a little bit of a joke - hey, random black woman? 10 bucks she's a witch! - but it kinda adds to the witch family lore, in a Anne Rice way... Might be less noticeable if every once in a while they had a black character that wasn't magical, but hey... all minor charcters die anyway, so it doesn't really matter.
Two and a Half Men Review: Nice to Meet You, Walden Schmidt
9/20/2011 12:41 AM
Yeah, Charlie Sheen made a scene in real life, but come on. For how many ever seasons I was watching a show on Charlie Harper the character, and I liked Charlie Harper the character (that's why I started watching it in the beginning and why I kept watching it every season after). Alan is a good character and his Mom too, and I was almost willing to continue watching this... Until...
It started pretty funny, but started to get kinda tasteless and then it just snowballed downhill when they spilled the ashes.
Come on. Everybody hates Sheen, but you can't kill off a character like that... A character responsible for the ratings so far...
And Kutcher... All part of the avalanche. Cannot understand what people see in this guy besides his face.
Gosh... Not everybody junks up and passes out quietly in a hotel room. Some people go out loud. Give Sheen a break. The guy admitted he was spiralling. Having the star of your show explode and sucked up in a vacuum comes off immature, his family chugging appletinis after the funeral capped off with fart jokes? Real mature. Who is supposed to laugh at that?
Cryer was good, but I'm disappointed and starting to feel bummed out. Like if I've been to a funeral...
Archer Round Table: "Heart of Archness: Part I"
9/19/2011 8:37 PM
Favourite Archer Joke - when Rip say's that they're going to be alright and Archer put's down the wheels.
Favourite ruse - the sink clog
Rip - Archer's way more badass in a practical way. I missed Lana and the gang, despite loving Rip, so maybe he could do 3 episodes a season or something instead of when they do weird add-ons like the russian or the swede.
Tease- Remember The Wire? The Dope fiends who wait for testers every Thursday? The dudes snorting 90% baking soda? Yeah...
Grieving process - standard for Archer in as much as Archer can be standard

It's probably just me The Emmies are starting to become even more pointless. I love Modern Family like a brother, but really? Where's the love for the FX comedies. It's like a cycle between NBC, CBS and ABC.
Yay, for Dinklage on GOT.
But seriously,Mad Men? Friday Night Lights? Downtown Abbey? Who watches/judges these things?
Nobody saw Hannah?

The Secret Circle Round Table: Series Premiere
9/16/2011 3:26 PM
Favourite scene- When Charles lit the match and the stove caught fire. The whole "Her mom dies gruesomely and tragically" scene. Most people leave it out and start at the funeral...
Favourite charcter: Faye, even though she'd going to have an episode somewhere on the horizon to explain her sad back-story that forces her to put on the tough-chick mask.
Coming for Cassie: members of another circle who only have five? Magic stealers?
Grade: B-, unless you're grading on a curve comparing it to other CW shows. For CW this is A+, distinction, honours and Dean's list. For normal TV for normal people, B-. The acting is good, the setting is fresh, the dialogue is not the worst ever, special effects are good...
But despite that, I feel like I'm at least a decade to old to be watching this. For a show about witches who summon storms at will and set cars on fire, I was remarkably bored. The female protagonist (Cassie) doesn't do all that much to capture the interest (maybe she'll be the last in this drive to flood the media with young female protagonists.) Lines like "Go away, Storm", don't really generate a lot of love.
It needs somebody for comic relief, unless they're going to abuse Faye for that.
It's very cliche. It's a cliche storm in fact, but if they fix Cassie Cardboard, and make Adam less like Goth Edward, who knows?
I'm probably just too old, cause this looks rated G.

It looks like a real action episode - gotta be good. No so Elena-centric as "Birthday". Werewolves, hybrids, good vampires...
Archer Review: Sploosh!

OMG... best Thursday night ever! Primetime don't start without everyone's favourite Pirate King/Retired Retard Spymaster.
Epic laugh moment - the bitchslap with the bottle; the crashlanding when Archer put down the wheels
Rip was golden as Samson 2.0 Loved every line, especially "in your pants."
It was one of those "pipeline" styled episodes. YAY!!!
Only 2 more...
2 more, yay!!!!

The Vampire Diaries Round Table: Season 3 Preview Edition!
9/14/2011 12:07 PM
Storyline - Klaus and whatever he's doing
Delena hookup? Damon's manly pride is night non-existent, so I can see him trying a move, but Elena ain't a ho, and this ain't a soap opera... I hope...
Anna/Vicki callback - to break up the cringe-worthy ship of Beremy and set Bonnie down a part of worse magic abuse until she becomes evil Bonnie, retires from the Scooby gang and joins the ripper show? To much extrapolation? Even as a ghost hunter, I don't see Jeremy moving up in the ranks much. Ghost seeing is pretty much a lame power unless you get the shinigami powers to go with it. Is Jeremy a Shinigami? No, so I'm bored already. They should have demons and other hellspit too that torment him through the night, with Anna and Vicki acting as his guardian angels. Then he could kill Bonnie too and add her to the ghost gang... like pokemon cards... Gotta kill and collect them all!
Original Sibling - Whichever one gets along with Klaus best. The suck up.
Bold prediction - Stefan stays a ripper all season and ends up ripping on one of the gang and getting killed and/or turned human to end his Ripper days once and for all. Comes a time when the 12-step just don't cut it.
The Vampire Diaries Poster: Teasing Delena?
9/14/2011 11:23 AM
More than any pseudo-Delena development, I'm actually happy that Klaus is in this. He's safe from death until the half-way checkpoint, right? Don't want a gay Klefan thing, because that'll totally kill Stelena (and is not really a Plec thing to do considering the pseudo-Jyler moments), but the further Stefan goes down the rabbit hole this season with Klaus, the better. Klaus is like a little shadow devil, luring the saint down into temptation. Yay, for some Stefan development outside of being the boyfriend.
Ringer Series Premiere Review: Did You Keep Up?
9/14/2011 1:57 AM
Not one of the biggest Gellar fans, but she pulls off the double act. Not so good as the Katherine/Elena duo, but that's probably just because her two characters are a bit too alike. Besides one being a poor junkie and the other being a socialite, they're not that different because I'm assuming they had some common ground right up until the kid died. I'm assuming they grew up together... That at some point, Bridget wasn't a bum.
Yay, for Nestor and his eyelashes. Yay, for the majority of the cast.
Excellent pacing to keep the audience involved despite the cliche 'prince and the pauper' plotline. They put in so many twists and subplots that you almost forget about the whole twin angle. And I only now caught the meaning of the name... lol.
Hope they don't work a triangle into this at any point, or a hexagon... Is it just me or does Bridget have a UST thing going with every male character in the show? Hah.
Hope they don't go too much into the sad 'I used to be a junkie' back-story.
"I hurt people. Can you ever forgive me. Blah..."
Best pilot out since... Probably the best CW pilot ever... Hope the pace keeps pumping and that it doesn't end up stagnant like Gossip Girl and the host of zombie series out there (Desperate Housewives...)
Rutina Wesley Teases Role on Season Five of True Blood
9/13/2011 6:34 PM
For the love of everything pure and sacred in the world of vampire fantasy, somebody tell Ball that it's okay to kill characters.
I actually liked Tommy - who learned to shape shift into other people - and they killed him off. Jesus, was kinda creepy at first because I thought they were going to do some gay sex scene, but they did it really well and brought out the love in the relationship, the good cooperative team skills, the similar magic abilities... Jesus even had a demon in him, way cool, and they kill him off... Wow.
They killed Nan, the queen... both characters who I really liked despite them having less than five lines per season...
Who else... Renee. Godric. The texan vampires...
Out of everybody else to resurrect? Why Tara? Come on. Why? WHY?
