Once Upon A Time Season 2, Episode 20: The Evil Queen

Published April 29, 2013 by tiradical20s

In the past, Snow White saves an identity hidden Regina from a horde of angry townspeople and relays that she feels that Regina is good inside to her.  Once Snow discovers Regina is under a spell, she turns on her.

In the real world, Emma and Henry try to prove to themselves and Neal that Samara is somehow involved in a dirty plot against the fairytale creatures.

Can someone PLEASE kill off Henry? He is probably one of the most irritating things on television right now!!

The Client List Season 2, Episode 8: Heaven’s Just A Sin Away

Published April 29, 2013 by tiradical20s

Riley feels guilty about sleeping with one of her clients for money and tries to seek solace in the eyes of God on a church outting with her friends and family.  Also, dust is kicked up when Kyle is released from jail and Riley tells him she slept with someone else.

I never realized how good of an actress Jennifer Love Hewitt is.  Her face looked hollower and that perky energy Riley usually gives off was majorly subdued by guilt in this episode and I could actually feel her pain.  This show is way more than boobies and sex appeal, guys….Lifetime hits you where it hurts.

Shows I am excited about this summer that haven’t premiered yet

The Fosters (ABC Family)

June 3rd at 9 pm

While I’m not exactly jumping out of my seat over this one, I always have fun watching ABC Family shows.  They are either a hit or a massive, unadulterated miss.

We’ll see why this took so long to get out…..

Under the Dome (CBS)

I actually enjoyed the pilot.  We’ll see where it goes.

Family Tools (ABC)

May 1 at 8:30 pm

Taking over the timeslot of The Neighbors, it better be able to stand its own between Modern Family and The Middle.  If not it is doomed for cancellation.


July 10 at 10 pm

I really want a good show about summer camp.  I went for years and loved it and I want a show to capture that as well.

Cedar Cove (Hallmark)

July 20 at 9 pm

I hope this show doesn’t make me fall asleep.

Devious Maids (Lifetime)

Shows that made my shit list this year

Published April 29, 2013 by tiradical20s

Let the in memoriam begin:

File:666 Park Avenue.jpg

Had potential, but was just a bit confusing.

File:Last Man Standing intertitle.jpg

This show was so funny last season and then it took a turn for the political during Season 2.  Not to mention the extremely obvious recast of the oldest daughter…..we aren’t stupid, ABC.

Last Resort ABC.jpg

Lost faith in this about halfway through the first episode.  Lost military style? Ain’t nobody got time for that.

File:Red Widow logo.jpg

Didn’t even get five minutes in.



File:Elementary intertitle.png


File:Made in Jersey.jpg

Remember when this was canceled after one episode?

File:Vegas tv logo.jpg

I don’t care about Dennis Quaid even a little.

File:Cult intertitle.png

I enjoyed the first episode, but it was just too complex for a show on The CW.

File:MobDoctor promo logo crop.jpg

HA. Whoever thought this was a good idea was on so many drugs.

File:Animal Practice promo.jpg

I can’t even discuss this.  How this was even greenlit…I can’t even.

File:Chicago Fire Title Card.jpg

I just had no interest in this one.

File:Deception logo.jpg

NBC, you don’t need your own version of Revenge….

File:Go On intertitle.png

I don’t know….I just didn’t laugh.

File:Guys with Kids promo.jpg

Watched this about halfway through the season and then my brain started working again.

File:Revolution Title Card.jpg

I would love to know who does Charlie’s post apocalyptic hair styling.

File:Smash Title Card.jpg

You can only watch the same scene over and over again so many times.


Christina Applegate > The rest of the world….no Christina means no me.

File:The Americans Intertitle.jpg


File:Legit FX card.jpeg

I just…was so offended.

I honestly don’t care how much everyone loves Bo Burnham…this show’s pilot SUCKED.


While I enjoyed this show at first,  I became irritated that the character of Aviva was so disrespectful and ungracious to her boyfriend/baby daddy and literally wanted to jump through the television to ring her neck.

A moment of silence for our fallen brethren

Shows I want to be renewed for the Fall 2013 Season

Published April 29, 2013 by tiradical20s


Switched at Birth for a Season 3

Why?: It’s revolutionary but still keeps that horribly written, ABC Family charm!

Chance: Good

File:The Carrie Diaries intertitle.png

The Carrie Diaries for a Season 2

Chance: Fair

Why?: Although Carrie and Sebastian broke up at least twice per episode, I found this show to be sweet and fun.  I never even saw Sex in the City, but the show is authentic and cute.

File:Teen Wolf season 2 intertitle.png

Teen Wolf for a Season 4

Why?: This show is so bad that you can’t look away, but I would mercilessly rob Dylan O’Brien’s cradle any day of any week of any month.

Chance: Very Good


The Lying Game for a Season 2

Why?: BECAUSE it is fun and has your typical ABC Family drama going on.  EVERYONE loves shows like this.

Chance: Not Great

The New Normal title card.jpg

The New Normal for a Season 2

Why?: Because TV needs a show like this.  Also NeNe Leaks forever.

Chance: Fair

File:Awkward title.png

Awkward for a Season 4

Why?: Because Jenna is just like any of us, has for real problems and the guidance counselor and Sadie are amazing characters.

Chance: Good


Melissa & Joey for a Season 4


Chance: Fair

File:The Neighbors intertitle.pngThe Neighbors for a Season 2

Why?:  I hated this show at first.  I thought the premise was so ridiculous, but once they moved away from the goofy alien projections it became pretty funny.

Chance: Good

File:The Middle logo.png

The Middle for a Season 5

Why?: Sue Heck

Chance: Very good

File:Modern Family Title.svg

Modern Family for a Season 5

Why?: Although I find this show to be only slightly less overrated than The Big Bang Theory, I do enjoy some of the characters.  I don’t, however, find this show to be Emmy award winning material.

Chance: Extremely good


Suburgatory for a Season 3

Why?: I love this show.  I love the characters, I love the humor and most of all I love that Dallas’ dog’s name is “The Occult.”

Chance: Good

File:Nashville logo.jpg

Nashville for a Season 2

Why?: I initially loved this show, then I thought it was just ok, and now I love it again.  I love the dynamics they have drawn from the characters in this show and I do hope they continue the series.

Chance: Good

File:Happily Divorced.jpg

Happily Divorced for a Season 3

Why?: Well, Fran Drescher’s voice grew on me to be honest.  I also love how sassy Peter is.

Chance: Decent

File:Community title.jpg

Community for a Season 5

Why?: Um, six seasons and a movie. Duh. While this season has been less than stellar, I am constantly rooting for this show since it has been pushed down, strung along and led on more than any other show on any other network.

Chance: Not Good

File:1600 Penn promo.jpg

1600 Penn for a Season 2

Why?: This show is actually pretty funny. If it premiered in the fall, I think it would have done better and gotten better ratings.

Chance: Not Good

File:Parks and recreation title.jpg

Parks and Recreation for a Season 6

Why?: Because it’s one of the funniest shows ever

Chance: Very good

File:Men at Work intertitle.png

Men at Work for a Season 3

Why?: While the second season feels off, I don’t think it is a reason for cancellation.

Chance: Fair

File:Hemlock Grove Titlecard.jpg

Hemlock Grove for a Season 2

Why?: I cannot even begin to explain my extreme love for this show.  It was FABULOUS.  I was so lost and confused a lot of times, but I was glued to this for the entire 13 episodes on Netflix.  I would be fully supportive of a second season and my loins tremble in anticipation.

Chance: Fair


Happy Endings for a Season 4

Why?: Like Men at Work, this show has dwindled in hilarity but I still love the characters.  USA said they would pick it up if ABC opted not to order a fourth season, so fingers crossed.

Chance: Fair

File:Once Upon aTime promo image.jpg

Once Upon A Time for a Season 3

Why?: This show is just fun.  While it treads a little bit on the ridiculous side at times, I always find myself compelled to at least find out what is happening and what fairy tale they are doing each week!

Chance: Good

File:The Client List intertitle.png

The Client List for a Season 3

Why?: This show rips my heart out.  I look past all the slutty outfits and weird sexy massage weirdness and focus on the family ties and friendship story archs.  Lifetimes really knows how to throw a dagger through a woman’s ovaries that’s for sure.

Chance: Good


Zombieland for a Season 1

Why?: I watched the pilot on Amazon, one of it’s first originals, and although it was hard at first to get away from the fact that the characters we all loved from the movie were gone, it was actually pretty funny and a good show to nurse my sadness over The Walking Dead being over for the season.

Chance: Fair

Surprised at renewal?: No

File:The Vampire Diaries (title card).png

The Vampire Diaries Season Five (The CW)

Surprised at renewal?: No

File:Hart of Dixie intertitle.png

Hart of Dixie Season 3 (The CW)

Surprised at renewal?: Yes

File:Glee title card.svg

Glee Season 5 (Fox)

Why I love it:  I DON’T LOVE IT.  It’s super annoying sometimes.  But god help me, I can’t tear myself away.  Some of them are so talented.

Why I love it: Booth and Brennan fo’ eva.

Surprised at renewal?: Only because it’s been on for so long.

2 Broke Girls Season 3 (CBS)

Why I love it: Kat Dennings and that is the only reason.

Surprised at renewal?: A teensy bit.


The Big Bang Theory Season 7 (CBS)

File:The Mindy Project intertitle.png

File:The Walking Dead 2010 logo.svg

The Walking Dead Season 4 (AMC)

Why I love it: FAVORITE SHOW ON TV.  This show really makes you feel for this motley crew of survivors, their struggles and their strength to stay a live.  I have shed so many tears over this show and if this were every cancelled….I would quit life.

Surprised at renewal?: NO

Surprised at renewal?: No.


Pretty Little Liars Season 5 (ABC Family)

Why I love it: It’s just so addicting.  No one looks like they are in high school and Aria dresses like a blind hobo. It’s wonderful.

Why I love it: It’s been a long time coming….TELL ME WHO DA MOTHER IS!!!
