Unfortunately, I am going to have to go with Betrayal, even though it really wasn’t BAD at all.  I predict it will get cancelled though.

Hello Ladies Series Premiere: Pilot

WELL.  I hope HBO has found its next hit because this show was awesome!  This guy is SUCH a loser, tries WAY too hard to be “cool”, is actually very lonely and is such a self-centered prick to his friends that this show has all the ingredients to be a hit.  I don’t know how the general public will receive it, but the character, Stuart, Stephen Merchant has created is FABULOUS.  I enjoyed the show and I would love to see if it continues.

Hello Ladies continues next week.

While I understand why they are putting this on after Revenge, I don’t think it will do well in the timeslot.  I am certainly not expecting to love this show, if I do then you can all watch me eat my words later.

I hope this is good, honestly!

True Blood Season 5, Episode 12: Save Yourself

Published August 27, 2012 by tiradical20s

THANK GOD the worst season of True Blood ever is finally over!!!  I did not have a clue what was going on the whole season!!!!

Bad things about the finale:

  1. The fairy that Andy impregnated orgasmed her babies out and THEN peaced, leaving Andy with 4 babies and an extremely irate girlfriend!
  2. Bill is still alive even after DYING.  I can’t even tell you how loud I screamed when Bill died, I was SO HAPPY…but then he fucking Lillithed out of the blood puddle.
  3. What on earth was actually even happening? Like, does anyone really know?
  4. The general lack of Alcide and his storyline.
  5. Hoyt is really gone.
  6. Pretty much everything that involved Sookie.

Good things about the finale:

  1. Jason kicking ass and taking names.  Not Jessica’s though.  Which is awesome because she deserves it. No matter how much I like her.
  2. PAM AND TARA!!! Yay!!! And awwww for Pam showing emotion to someone other than Eric!!!!! Love it.
  3. The split second where Bill was actually dead.

Well, obviously, we all know season 6 is going to deal with “Billith” trying to kill everyone and he is going to be the villain.  At least the authority and Russell Edgington are all dead so we can end the stupid authority storyline.

I was extremely disappointed this summer with True Blood so I am sort of glad I don’t need to watch it anymore.  Here’s hoping that Alan Ball gets his shit together for season 6!

True Blood Season 5, Episode 11: Sunset

Published August 20, 2012 by tiradical20s

Of course I would put this as the episode picture…..I mean, come on!

Right, so, for those of you who don’t read my blog or haven’t read my previous blogs, you know that I have loved True Blood in the past.  Loved it. My favorite seasons, Season 2 and Season 3, were AWESOME and this season in no way compares to that.

I am not a big fan of any type of political satires, which is exactly what this whole season has been, so I am getting particularly tired of it.  I hope Alan Ball decides to go back to the traditional True Blood storylines next season, because that is what totally kept me watching.

Anyway, let’s get on to the episode.

After my heart committed suicide last week after Hoyt made Jessica glamour him to forget Jessica AND Jason, I was a little tender going in to this episode.

Frankly, I am sick of Bill’s bull shit and this episode of his preachy, ethereal blather did not aid in his character rehabilitation.  He is by far the worst, most annoying character on the show and my friend, Chris (who watches the show with me every week), and I both agreed we would totally not be upset if he was the one to be killed off the show.

Obviously, we know it’s not going to happen, but a girl can dream.

So did Jason die? No! But, I was worried there for a second.  Stupid Bill ordering Jessica to make Jason a vampire….Jessica’s fault initially but, of course, Bill just had to “help.”

And, guys, wtf is up with Lillith? I am sick of seeing her prancing around naked and bloody.  I get that’s the True Blood way, but couldn’t someone get that poor goddess a coat? Sheesh!

Also, let’s talk about that extremely awkward sex scene between Eric and Nora.  I was totally weirded out by their fluid swapping anyway considering their vampire bond familial relationship, but her screaming “FORGIVE ME!” during their consorting was….just…weird.  The producers could have cut that one for sure, it did not aid to the episode.

What about that awesome faerie elder character? “Ke$ha, for or against?” HAHA. She was hilarious, I was sorry to see her die!

And, oh, shit, Russell is going to go ape shit on those faeries now that he can see them.  Really great job protecting your sister, Jason!

Tune in next week for my breakdown of the season finale 😀
