About Jen

I'm pretty much just a big nerd who loves to interact with other people as obsessed with TV as I am! Some of my all-time favorite television includes sci-fi and fantasy staples like Buffy, X-Files, and Battlestar Galactica, but I won't attempt to list all the shows I watch and love currently - I'm kind of an addict. I'm also a big fan of reading, writing, gaming, and dancing (to make up for the rest of my lazy hobbies).

Revenge recap: Justice is served

A- Recaps By

Yay, welcome back, Revenge! The holidays nice and all, but why do my shows have to go on hiatus? There are only so many things to decorate and cookies to eat before you want to sit down to some pretty people exacting cold hard vengeance. Hope everyone had relaxing and relatively scandal-free holiday break.

Revenge recap: ‘Til arrest do us part

A+ Recaps By

“If we choose to, we can live in a world of comforting illusion. We can allow ourselves to be deceived by false realities. Or we can use them to hide our true intentions.”

From the first line of Emily’s opening monologue I knew this was going to be a badass episode.

Revenge recap: What’s a little attempted murder between friends?

A- Recaps By

Emily with a tears hangover.

So it seems like Emily is still trying really hard to come off as a hard-ass bitch despite the fact that she is pretty much an emotional train wreck right now. Before this season, if you had told me that Emily can cry I would have laughed and told you that her tear ducts dried out years ago.

Revenge recap: Memories better left forgotten

A- Recaps By

This week we see the culmination of all the harm Emily’s vendetta is doing to Amanda’s would-be normal life; Daniel starts getting a little sneakier and a little smarter; the mystery man Declan robbed becomes more mysterious; Nolan starts an adorkable relationship (thank you Zooey Deschanel for the existence of that term); and we learn some pretty terrible things about Emily’s mother.

Press conference

Another Sunday, another scandal in the Hamptons. Tensions are high(er than usual) in Grayson Manor, Emily’s old flame is in the picture, Declan is now officially a hoodlum, and a cute and relatively normal person is crushing on Nolan.

Hello, sexy British ninja.

This was a very flashbacky episode, giving us a peek into the history between Emily and Aiden that was apparent in ep 1.

Revenge recap: Twists and return from the dead

A Recaps By
Watching her sister connect with fake her.

This episode opens with a creepy as shit nightmare of Amanda hanging out with her mom until her mom morphs into Victoria. Unsettling! Both women are presumed dead and both will be resurrected in this season. I see what you did there, show!

Not really dead, bitches.

Having successfully faked her death, Victoria wants to take Charlotte (and her inheritance money) and get the hell out of dodge.

Bones recap: Watch out ladies, Sweets is playing the field

A Recaps By

Within the first five minutes I already like this episode. It opens with a murder scene. Like, a scene showing a murder happen, not the location of a murder. It’s a nice change from the usual goofy, no-name characters happening upon a gruesome corpse that is the norm on Bones.

Revenge season 2 premiere recap: The bitch is back

A Recaps By
revenge s2

How sweet it is to have Emily’s stunning red dresses, Victoria’s backstabbing bitchiness, and Nolan’s snappy one-liners back on my TV screen. Revenge returned Sunday night with a thrilling hour of trademark drama and intrigue. The episode opened by panning over bits of wreckage in the ocean not from Victoria’s plane, but instead Jack’s boat.

Bones season 8 premiere recap: Bones is back with a vengeance

A- Recaps By
No really, it's awful.

The best season finale cliffhanger of Bones ever was definitely Brennan’s “I’m pregnant, Booth” at the end of season six. On the other hand, the setup from last season’s cliffhanger made for a more interesting first episode back and set up what seems like will be an intriguing season of crime fighting and forensic anthropology.
