Mockingbird Lane Season 1, Episode 1: Pilot

Published October 27, 2012 by tiradical20s

First Impression:

Well, I never saw The Muensters, but why not let’s give it a shot.

Last Impression:

I liked it! I mean, like I said, I don’t think it’s really fair to call it The Muensters, which is why they didn’t, but it was good.  It’s definitely an interesting concept and I think I would like to see it get picked up.  It would be good for NBC to have a dramedy like this because it’s unlike anything on their lineup.  I hope it does get picked up so we can see where it goes.  I think it is something they can carry on for a few years.

Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23 Season 2, Episode 1: A Reunion in Apartment 23

Published October 25, 2012 by tiradical20s

 

OH MY DEAR GOD DO I LOVE THIS SHOW.  I couldn’t be more happy that this show was renewed.

In this episode, June tries to convince James to do a Dawson’s Creek reunion episode (CAN YOU GUYS EVEN IMAGINE HOW FABULOUS THAT WOULD BE?!) when he gets a letter from the cast asking him to do the special, but finds out Chloe has been writing him the letters to boost his ego.

The slideshow June made was so funny I almost couldn’t handle it.  Also James cornered Frankie Muniz in a grocery store and had a long, meaningful 90s has been talk with Mark Paul-Gosselaar.  I WANT THIS SHOW TO BE ON FOREVER.  I respect James Van Der Beek so much for making fun of how ridiculous his existence is :).

Happy Endings Season 3, Episode 1: Cazash Dummy Spillionaires

Published October 22, 2012 by tiradical20s

I love this show. SO MUCH.  It takes sitcom to a whole new level.

In the season premiere, we see the gang in new places.

  • Penny, after a tragic accident where she fell down many flights of stairs, is in an entire torso cast.
  • Max, who is taking care of Penny and advantage of her physical therapist, “miserys” her so he can get closer to her physical therapist.
  • Dave and Alex tried to casually date but realize they can’t move backwards from where they once were so they move in together.  No one thinks it’s a good idea.
  • Brad lies about not working to Jane, which angers her.  He also tries some hobbies including his marionette.

Love the song that Brad and his marionette sang at the end.

This is going to be an interesting season.

American Horror Story Season 1, Episode 1: Welcome to Briarcliff

Published October 20, 2012 by tiradical20s

 

WOW. Ryan Murphy, you evil genius.

As hard as it was for me to differentiate between Season 1 and Season 2’s characters (ie Kit vs. Tate), I LOVE the new season.

Aliens, nuns, EVAN PETERS IS BLOODY FACE….anything else, Ryan Murphy?!

I feel so bad for Lana, all she wanted to do was expose the mistreatment of patients, but Sister Jude just goes and has her committed to get a taste of her own medicine! CRAZY! And terrifying.

Also, kudos to Adam Levine (who is not an actor) for being really good at not having an arm and bleeding out.  The last shot of Jenna Dewan-Tatum running down the hall and seeing Bloody Face was nuts.

Can’t WAIT for the rest of the season!!!

Suburgatory Season 2, Episode 1: Homecoming

Published October 19, 2012 by tiradical20s

 

Tessa returns after a summer with her grandmother in NYC in the season 2 premiere of Suburgatory.

All of our favorite Chatswinians are prepping for a talent show at the country club and Tessa’s new found interest in her mother leads her to sing a song her mother wrote that happens to be the theme song of the show.

Lisa blackmails her parents into giving her a bigger part in their family cat act when she finds out that Ryan is adopted.

Noah also tries to steal Carmen, Dallas’ maid, to help with his new baby.  Eden is nowhere in sight.

I love this show, so glad it’s back.  I want more Daliah.

Underemployed Season 1, Episode 1: Pilot

Published October 18, 2012 by tiradical20s

 

First Impression:

It looks funny, typical MTV funny stuff.  Looks like it would be a good pair up for Awkward.

 

Last Impression:

This show is definitely not that funny, but it is a really good show for my generation of kids.  This is sort of what we are all going through right now, I definitely understand how some of these people are feeling.

Okay, my boyfriend and I were discussing this as we were watching the show, what is WRONG with that girl Raviva?  Why is she such a liar??? Why did she tell her friends that Lou was scared about the baby and being a dick about it when he was so supportive and wanted to help her?  She also lied about her mom and she was so insincere at the hospital when Lou was talking about how much he loved her and Rosemary.  She’s awful!  We don’t like her and I think she is going to leave the baby with Lou and peace.

Lou is definitely my favorite character on the show right now.  The premiere episode did’t really attract a boatload of ratings, but I blame that on MTV for not advertising well as per usual.  The same thing happened to The Inbetweeners.

The Walking Dead Season 3, Episode 1: Seed

Published October 16, 2012 by tiradical20s

OH MY GOD YOU GUYS, THE WALKING DEAD IS BACK!

For all of you who know me, you know this is my favorite show EVER.  EVER. And it did NOT disappoint (the ratings affirm that!).

So, it’s months after we left off and Lori is about to give birth (which I think cannot end well!).  They have been moving around and getting chased out of homes by walkers and now they decide to see if they can take over a giant prison nearby.  They succeed by shooting walkers epically.

Andrea, away from the group, is being taken care of by Michonne, the lady who has two pet zombies.  Andrea is very very sick and feels like she is holding her back, but Michonne will not leave her.

Rick shows a lot of animosity towards Lori about the baby and Lori worries she may have lost it.  I was seriously disturbed when she was talking about how the baby could eat her from the inside out.  YUCK! Can you imagine? That would be nuts.  Even though I hate Lori, I hope she didn’t lose the baby because that would be sad.

Hershel gets bitten by a zombie on his leg and Rick proceeds to cut his leg off to avoid infection and turning into a zombie.  I think he passes out from the pain? But who knows, good old Hershel could be dead? ALSO there are other survivors in the prison!

CAN’T WAIT UNTIL NEXT WEEK.

Sorry, Revenge, this is my new Sunday at 9 show!
