Once Upon A Time Season 2, Episode 11: The Outsider

Published January 16, 2013 by tiradical20s

 

Oh my dear god did I scream at the end of this episode!!!! Anybody else???

I mean, Mr. Rumpelstiltskin has pretty much NO happiness in his life.  NONE. He’s lost his son (his fault), his wife (most definitely his fault) and NOW he’s lost Belle because of that sexy buccaneer Captain Hook.

Once Upon A Time keeps getting better and better.  I’ll admit, I was wondering where this season could possibly go now that Emma and Snow are back in Storybrooke, but it has certainly been keeping me on my toes.

It was cool to see warrior Belle and Mulan and Phillip “falling in love.”  I feel like the creators of the show are trying really hard for the relationship between Phillip and Mulan to be some kind of surprise but they are NOT fooling anyone with their “subtle” hints and allusions.

Anyway, looking forward to next week!

The Carrie Diaries Season 1, Episode 1: Pilot

Published January 16, 2013 by tiradical20s

First Impression:

Why does The CW have TWO shows with the word “diaries” in it? That’s super lame.  Could we not have called it simply “Carrie” or even “Bradshaw” to avoid the double factor? This irritates me. but I will still watch it.

Last Impression:

Truly a delightful show.  AnnaSophia Robb is a wonderful actress and for some reason, although there is plenty of fluff, the fluff seems less than fluffy if you get what I mean?  I never watched Sex and the City and truly I could care less about it, but I can imagine Ms. Robb does the character justice and I mean look at that hair? Perfect right?  My boyfriend keeps calling her a pony because Sarah Jessica Parker is a full grown horse, which is quite hilarious.  I think it will probably get renewed even if the ratings are less than satisfactory.

Glee Season 4, Episode 5 and 6: The Role You Were Born to Play and Glease

Published November 16, 2012 by tiradical20s

 

I have come out of my brief hiatus to discuss last night’s episode of Glee.

I AM MOST DISPLEASED WITH THE PORTRAYAL OF EATING DISORDERS.

After last week’s casting in Grease, the school musical, the kids of McKinley High are magically ready to perform the show after only a week for all the world to see.

While I am very excited about the presence of Blake Jenner, who is very talented, and Darren Criss’ rendition of “Beauty School Dropout” I must say I was EXTREMELY offended by the subject content of Marley’s alleged spiraling into bulima as coaxed by Kitty.

Marley (who is probably a size 00) begins to fear she will be obese like her mother when her Sandy costumes begin shrinking (Kitty is bringing them in each night to make Marley feel like she is getting fat).

DID SHE NOT REALIZE THAT EVERYTHING ELSE FIT HER JUST RIGHT?! The scene where she is trying to throw up in the bathroom was just…awful.

“I DON’T WANT TO KISS A GIRL WITH PUKE ON HER BREATH!” said Rider Flynn.  This is the most distasteful sentence I have ever heard on Glee.  I understand what he was TRYING to get at by saying it, but it just rubbed me in such a wrong way that I almost walked away from my computer.  The whole episode did that.

I hope Ryan Murphy gets his ass handed to him for his character, Kitty, and for the subject matter.  I am all about portraying eating disorders on shows the CORRECT way if it is going to be tasteful and sensitive, but that really was not the way to do it.

 

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.

The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 3: The Rager

Published October 27, 2012 by tiradical20s

Elena continues to struggle with her newfound vampiric urges, especially when Rebekah oversteps her boundaries and pisses Elena off.

At a party Rebekah throws to regain her queen bee status over Caroline, Stefan tells Elena to attend so she can relax a little.  This proves difficult since UM ELENA WANTS TO KILL REBEKAH.

I HAVE A HUGEEEEE CRITICISM.  The part when Elena and April are talking in the kitchen and Elena offers her her beer THERE IS NO BEER IN THE CUP OR EVEN ANY KIND OF LIQUID AND THEY FUCKING PRETEND THERE IS LIQUID IN THE CUP AND YOU CAN SEE RIGHT THROUGH THE CUP BECAUSE OF THE ANGLE AND THE SUNSHINE AND IT’S BULLSHIT AND IT MADE ME SO MAD (MAD ENOUGH TO CREATE THE WORST RUN ON SENTENCE IN HISTORY).  GUYS. JUST PUT WATER IN THE CUP. APRIL DON’T PRETEND TO WIPE YOUR MOUTH WE KNOW YOU DRANK NOTHING.

God that really infuriated me for some reason.

In other news, Elena is imagining Damon because DUH she secretly loves him.  Klaus wants the new vampire hunter ALIVE? And what is the five? Is Jeremy one of them? Also, I don’t think Matt should be Elena’s blood bank anymore….

Until next week….

Two and a Half Men Season 10, Episode 5: That’s Not What They Call It In Amstredam

HI ROSE, WELCOME BACK.  Fresh off the heels of her accident with Charlie, Rose is back, stalking and getting into bed with Walden! Who didn’t think this episode was going to happen?  I KNEW she was going to do this.

Lindsay tries to set Walden up with some of her friends to no avail.  In steps Rose and suddenly there’s ball gags and leaf blowers du jour!

Funny episode, not too much to report though.

The Big Bang Theory Season 6, Episode 5: The Holographic Excitation

Published October 26, 2012 by tiradical20s

 

  • Howard is feeling very blue and not so into the Halloween spirit when he finds out that all of his friends are getting extremely sick of him bringing up how he was an astronaut every five seconds.
  • Amy tries to convince Sheldon to have a cute couple’s costume with her
  • Penny tries to take more of an interest in what Leonard is doing and goes to the lab to see where he works.  She realizes that his intelligence arouses her.
  • Raj tries to help Stuart plan an awesome Halloween party.

I just want to say, I don’t think anyone was wrong in thinking Howard was being annoying.  All he wanted to do was come home when he was in space anyway, so him bragging about it now is pretty lame!
