Pretty Little Liars Review: Fatal Games

First wanted to say that this was one if the better episodes in awhile. I actually will miss Mona, was starting to like her. Like many I thought it could be staged and she faked it until the last shot, which was very unsettling. Second wanted to say I'm happy Emily and Paige are back together I like Paige, I know I'm in the minority but I do, however I think Lindsay has gotten way too skinny. Either Ali is A or I'm back to the twin theory. But I don't think Ali killed Mona herself, yes we saw blonde hair, but could've been CeCe too. The little smirk on Ali's face when she watched the cops around Mona's place after hearing it was a homicide was unnerving and certainly points to her being a sociopath. I'm not sure why the writers don't say who A is. It won't ruin the show, what they are doing is ruining the show. You reveAl A and there's still a whole bunch of stuff for episodes. Why? How? If it is Ali go back to when she started planning it all out. How did she get all the help and money to do all this, so on and so forth.

EXACTLY!!! Telling us who A is can actually provide a massive amount of material for a plot over atleast one season to give us the information on how, why, what actually happened over the past few years etc. Then if they want one more season, then they have A escape from jail and make a season of A trying to murder everyone and can continue to play off of the drama of who betrayed who during A's long long game that is revealed in the season where they reveal A. There are plenty of possibilities to keep the show good in the process of revealing A. They are ruining the show and only making fans fed up and walking away from it by continuing this ridiculously annoying guessing game.

Exactly! I would love for us as the viewers to find out who A is during a season finale and then the next season we get to see how A works and the girls can find out in the mid season finale and the second half of the season can be what happens after they know who A is.

Yupp. But the writers and producers are greedy, they want as many season as possible prior to doing that so they can make more money... But seriously. They need to do something quick, the actresses who play the liars won't look like teenagers forever!

Tyrant Review: Who's the Better Brother Now?

Bassam,( Barrry) is a worst person than his homicidal brother. At least (Jamal)Mr. President has some degree of loyalty, ie: not killing his uncle, which leads me to believe that he will spare his brothers life, cause when it comes down to it, he was always fiercely loyal to his brother no matter how much it hurts or what people might say or think.....Jamal loves his brother despite the deep pain he has caused him. The writers must be clever and take us for another ride for season two and somehow keep this "family in the same country. I love Abuddin, I LOVE TYRANT.

Am gonna say it was a let down and a slap in the face I could have wrote better my self. Was anyone really bothered if hoyt n jess got hitched it was a good time filler as they realised They didn't have anywhere to go with the wet pile they had created. I started watching season six again and I would say knowing what happens now in season seven I wish they had just left it there to be honest. As the explanation for the characters fates was crap. Sookie never wanted kids ffs that was her and alcides bug bate wasn't it she didn't want her kid going through what she did.

Pretty Little Liars Review: Fatal Games

Its not even funny anymore, Alison's vastly bizarre character thanks to the writers who in a ploy to keep us guessing are losing the plot themselves. The more they run around circles with the plot and delusional theories more they're going to find it difficult to come out of, their own maze. I remember so many shows losing its spark thanks to extended seasons. CW ruined OC and OTH and it was hilarious that Dan Humphrey of all people turned out to be Gossip Girl ( a version of A ;) from New York).Fine dont give us who A is because you have two more seasons to run but give us some answers starting with Alison!!! I mean its established as far back as the first season flashbacks that she's a pathological liar and she would go to any inhuman lengths for self preservation and to play games so why not build on that instead of fooling the audience with this delicate and damaged girl who comes back to Rosewood seeking redemption? On one hand she's petrified on the other she's arranging Noel Kahn to break into Hanna's house. On one hand she's showing real emotion for Emily and then creating her army in some abandoned field. I dont believe that she's ultimately A its too convenient a theory,because the writers have established in 5 seasons that the PLLs or their near and dear ones cannot be A without some goodness in them like they even went as far as having Ezra randomly show up in New York to take a bullet so that he could redeem himself to Aria. They wasted so much time establishing Maggie and Malcolm as characters on the show and gave them screen time instead of using those precious minutes to show us something useful and then when they felt like it, they just pulled the plug with a very convenient plug in of oh Malcolm was not Ezra's in the first place. Then they randomly had his mother and brother steal screen time when they were not required. Why go into these unnecessary story lines when we all know that Aria and Ezra would end up together?
Sorry about my rant but I love the show so much that it kills me to see them ruining the show. Mike and Mona were unnecessary Ella and Zack too.And then Hanna's drinking and the darkness that Caleb carried back from Ravenswood- all these segues and still no truth to Alison's disappearance. And the PLLs might be sympathising with her but Im team Caleb on this one- he doenst trust Alison and in my own theory no teenage girl whose stayed missing for so long comes back all sunshine and rainbows. Knowing its Alison she's done something worse and the real world can be an unforgiving place so she might be running from something more dangerous than A. And given how smart Spencer is its hilarious that she has to discuss everything with the PLLs and then take action. Isn't it established from Ezras lair that every move is monitored and everything is recorded? So obviously if A can hear your plan isn't it obvious that he / she will try and stop you from going to the police? Why not send it anonymously without discussing it? The PLLs have got to be shown with some maturity and with some self worth and logic at some point. Why are they portrayed as such weak characters who cant do anything about their situation? And I was face palming when Officer Holbrook literally had to spell it out for the audience that Aria working at Radley's was Spencer's idea! Like hello! Im afraid to even see the PLLs living in Rosewood without Spencers protection without them falling into an A trap. And I really like Emily but why is she so dumb?Who leaves their phones literally in Ali's hands and who lets their guard down in front of her? I was excited for this fatale finale but when I was watching it with every passing scene i was getting more and more frustrated. The twin theory started with the books,then the mask maker. then A messing with Spencers eye drop made her see Sydney as Jennas twin, then today the twin girls who went into the bathroom cubicles and came out with smirks on their faces,I want that issue to be addressed! And guys I really need some answers on Alison. and her mother whose such a slut- like is there anyone in Rosewood she didnt have an affair with? Loved the easy chemistry of Spencer and Toby (again there was no reason to break that boys leg) and the graduation gift with the etching. classic touch.
Speaking of Mona, I dont think she's dead. Given how smart she is and realised that her life was in danger and she's stayed ahead of everyone I think she's taken a page out of Alison's book and realised that to beat Alison once and for all, or A, or both, she has to stay "dead". If Alison can get Noel to break into Hannas house to pose as A or as her "kidnapper" then i think Mona herself can arrange for a blond girl to make her death look like a homicide. Because the amount of blood in the house does not match the dead body of Mona where the blood is only smeared on her cheek. Like there are no real arteries in that area to dispel so much blood. And Im willing to believe that the body had a Mona mask on.Someone died but it was made to look like Mona, or noone died at all, because black gloves dont always mean A. And knowing Mona, she would not risk spreading the tapes from Radley and her notes so conveniently on her bed for A to just come in and kill her easily and destroy all the evidence. If that is the case however, then she is certainly as much a bimbo as the rest of them, and yes that includes the Rosewood PD. the waiting period all these months will be torturous :) if I were a fan i would buy the houses in Rosewood proper locks...

I agree with you (on all fronts) whole heartedly. They are ruining the show and creating unnecessary plot lines and are not giving a clear character on Ali. I mean, they didn't even really give us a reason as to why Ali has stopped trying with the liars, I mean come on. Give us SOMETHING to explain some unanswered questions... Like why did Mrs. D bury Ali? Or was that a lie? Who killed Mrs. D? Who killed Bethany young if they thought they had already killed Ali? And Mona... That's a 50/50 as to whether or not she has staged her death or is truly dead. Because you're right, she's far too smart to have let herself be off-ed in such a manner when she knew she had a target on her back for helping the liars and delving I to Bethany's tapes. It does make more sense that she faked her death to get away (following Ali's footsteps). But if she is actually dead, then it raises the question of who killed her and why exactly. A wouldn't necessarily have a reason to kill her, because Mona is turned against Ali and that was A's focus all along, or so we thought... There's another thing... Originally A just was tormenting the liars. Then it was A tormenting them in hopes of them leading A to Ali so A could finish what A started with Ali. Now it's... What? A knows where Ali is... Could kill her... But decides to make life hard for her... First Ali can't leave town or tell the cops... Now A is backed off of Ali... It just doesn't add up anymore... Now we have a series of mystery from A but no longer do we have any idea of who A is targeting and what A wants... It's like A is now on the back burner and now it's all about Ali playing games which makes us think she is A, but her being A doesn't exactly add up with everything else over the past several seasons. This season the writers really lost us all in not establishing a consistent character in both Ali and A... Which is entirely frustrating... It feels as if they've gone from being really good at what they do to having lost all their notes on where everything was leading to and are just chasing their frickin tale

Yes exactly I agree with you that why has Alison stopped trying with the PLLs when they've done nothing to incite her except ask for the truth- same as us audience lol ;). Mrs D buried Alison to protect someone close to her, could be Jason who was abusing drugs that summer or it could be bethany herself, i mean she's had half children with most of Rosewood so it would not shock me to find out that Bethany is Alisons half sister, that explains the very eerie resemblance. And in the last season in Melissas confession it was covered that Melissa accidentally killed Bethany because she thought that Spencer had hit her with the shovel on the back of her head and that she was breathing very shallow so assuming that shed already died or dying melissa buried bethany alive. But i do find your theory about the lies of Mrs D interesting and if they already thought that Alison was dead then why go to the trouble to kill someone else? Also I think that that creepy lady from Ravenswood might have some answers and that they should go back to her and ask her that who was threatening alison and why and how did she find alison and help her out of the grave.
I also feel that the whole A plot is lost because to tell you honestly Im a big fan of homicide series and mysteries and have been reading mystery novels since i was a kid and i also watch forensic shows on discovery and nat geo so i try to apply that logic everywhere but with PLL there is no logic its just turning out to be a mindless guilty pleasure, because at this point i dont know what A wants or the Ws (writers ) want leaving us in a fix. Seems like A is a sociopath who has no reason for torturing them except torture itself- like he/she enjoys wrecking havoc without any ulterior motive. I'm super confused but oh well.... :P

Well we know for sure that someone did try to kill Ali and she was buried, because creepy Rosewood lady (Mrs. Grunwald) is not the type of woman to play Ali's game and lie to say that Ali was being threatened and was buried. She is above the nonsense of the game, which the show Ravenswood showed us. So since she is the one who told us that she pulled Ali out of the grave, we know that for sure happened. But Ali is such a psycho that we can't truly believe that she told us the truth in saying Mrs. D was the one who buried her. For all we know, she told the liars that just to get them to not trust Mrs. D and not talk to her about anything, but the question is why. Did she not want the liars talking to Mrs D, because she didn't want the girls to know Mrs D was helping her run away? Did Ali kill Bethany and Mrs D tried to help her escape and kept up with the fake death routine to protect Ali from Ali having killed her half-sister (at this point I believe Bethany is Ali's half sister). Or maybe Ali told us the truth and it's the other way around? Mrs D covered it up so no one would know that Mrs D had an affair and had another daughter who was in Radley (Bethany)? Though there are flaws in both these theories... If Bethany was Ali's half sister... Then how did no one realize Mrs D was pregnant and had another kid? Or If Ali killed Bethany to frame Spencer (knowing Melissa wasn't far behind to find the body) then where is the time frame of Ali being buried etc? Or maybe Ali was never buried and that whole night is a lie because she had something on Grunwald to make Grunwald lie (which would explain her bizarre reaction to the liars' presence in Ravenswood)... Because if Ali was buried and got out of the grave, wouldn't a warning flag have gone off in Melissa's brain as she buried Bethany, that the ground was turned up for a grave to have already been dug? I mean Melissa isn't stupid, she's a Hastings, she would have noticed that she was burying Bethany in an already dug up grave, wouldn't she? So what if Ali was never buried, she attacked Bethany, let Melissa think Spencer had killed her, and Mrs. D saw the whole thing and so mrs d helped Ali fake her death? It would explain who Mrs D was passing that luggage off to in the woods. Maybe Ali is such a sociopath that then she built up her entire network of minions and had a minion kill her mom so her mom could never reveal the truth and bust her? I mean that's the only way that Ali could have been A all along, is
If she was such a sociopath that she did all of that... But then we would need an explanation as to why there is evidence of her having been struck on the head in the episode this season with the doctors examination... But even then; this theory is so out there and so flawed that it would be ridiculous for it to be the truth. But then again; the writers are chasing their tails and may just be getting their story ideas from reading comments like these lol

I understand the point of view of this article, but I disagree. This article implies that all relationships are black and white and the same, but in actuality they are very different, and what can work beautifully in one relationship might not work in another. Look at Sookie and Bill's relationship, he put her through the ringer, back and forth with emotions at his doing, constantly putting her in danger, and at the end of the day he wanted her to have what she always wanted, to be normal and have a normal life. She's great with kids and dreamed of having them (although was unsure she would find someone to have them with), she was always fed up with all the crazy, and she herself tried to move on from Bill numerous times but couldn't. While I agree that it is infuriating that he gets to make the decision for her because he is the man, you have to acknowledge that her relationship was not the same as the other vampire/human duos listed. Jessica can't have kids, and Hoyt doesn't know if he will ever want kids, and other than their rough period when Jessica was still trying to figure herself out they were really good together. Arlene and Keith had a very basic, drama-free relationship, and she already is a mother and has lived a normal life up to this point. Lafayette and James are gay anyways and therefore can't have kids of their own and would have to adopt if they wanted kids anyway, and can you really picture Lafayette as the type to want kids? The author of this article is right in saying that being a vampire/human relationship shouldn't be enough to keep a couple apart in the show, especially when there are so many other relationships on the show shown as successful, but like I said, just because it works for some doesn't mean that all vampire/human relationships are meant to work out, especially if it doesn't match up with what both parties want in life. It's like saying that because these two gay/straight people in a relationship worked out that all other gay/straight relationships will. The only thing that angered me with the finale was Bill being a misogynistic @$$.

Covert Affairs Review: Trust Earned and Trust Betrayed

Are you still enjoying this season long investigation? Yes. Season long arcs are great. Interesting thought about Arthur being the target. I didn't think about that. I voted maybe. But it does seem coincidental that Joan has a secret about the Balkans, Arthur was in the targeted car, and there is something going down in the Balkans by a guy from Georgia. I guess it's not too surprising that Caitlyn was the mole. Ryan told Annie that he had one and Caitlyn was really the only Mcquaid Security person that the show introduced us to, so it kind of had to be her. I almost feel like I'm watching 24... It would have been better if it had been Nina (Sarah Clarke), but they already used her on this show... as a mole! Overall, good show and thanks for the review.
