Here’s The CW’s schedule next season (and why it makes sense)

the cw TV NOW

The CW was the last network to announce its new fall schedule today in New York City during upfronts week. What followed was some decries that the netlet had gotten it all wrong. Reasons? Well, for one, they paired Beauty and the Beast together, they didn’t pair The Originals with its parental show The Vampire Diaries, and it moved The Carrie Diaries to Fridays.

The Mindy Project ‘Take Me With You’ review: I Haiti being with you

the mindy project 124

I don’t have much to say, and this will be more of my thoughts on The Mindy Project‘s first season than the finale, but I felt as though I had to write something. The Mindy Project truly trudged into my life as the dark horse — even if it’s just a little something.

How I Met Your Mother ‘Something New’ review: The Mother is finally revealed

how-i-met-your-mother-cristin-milioti

The season 8 finale of How I Met Your Mother ended with one of the biggest reveals in television history, The Mother. However, the show had three main stories running before we got to the reveal, and unfortunately the characters were split up from each other for the entirety of the show, but worked well to create a nice foundation for the final season.

Castle season 5 finale recap: Will they or won’t they?

castle 524

What a rollercoaster this Castle season finale was. I was almost completely unspoiled for it, save for some speculation I’d stumbled upon on Tumblr, and so by the time the episode ended I was sitting on the floor, my jaw brushing the floor and with no idea whatsoever as to what to think or feel.

I showed someone who’s never watched Lost Girl the original pilot ‘Vexed’

My sister answers a few questions I have about the original pilot "Vexed" after watching it as the first episode of the series she's ever viewed.

After watching the initial Lost Girl pilot, the eighth of the series titled “Vexed,” I questioned why the showrunners didn’t put that one up first and begin the story from there. Maybe they didn’t think audiences would have enough information? Perhaps they wanted to explain a bit more? But, unfortunately, I had already seen the seven episodes prior to “Vexed,” and I couldn’t ask myself if I thought the pilot was good enough, in practical terms.

Whoa, I’m starting this a bit late. I only have about an hour to write this post up, so here goes some short thoughts on the first three episodes, and then a bit more on the last episode, which happened to be the original pilot.

To be honest, I’ve already watched the season 2 premiere.

Game of Thrones ‘The Bear and the Maiden Fair’ recap: The board is set…

vlcsnap-2013-05-13-15h13m11s19

…the pieces are moving. One thing Game of Thrones usually gets right is making its filler episodes feel satisfying. Take this episode: everything that happened was a preface to the coming weeks, laying the groundwork for what’s to come. And yet the information we were given felt like necessary clues to the bigger puzzle.

Revenge season 2 finale review: The One With the Blackout

JOSH BOWMAN

Just a short review…

Well, that was a pretty good two hours of Revenge, wasn’t it? It’s as if those in charge have been listening to everyone’s complaints and decided to pack it into the final moments of Revenge’s sophomore season. As we’ve all pointed out, Revenge hasn’t truly been itself this season, getting muddled up in tangents and The Initiative and Padma and so on.

New Girl ‘Winston’s Birthday’ recap: The morning after

Nick and Jess
Nick

The new episode of New Girl begins with the morning after. Nick wakes up first and stares at Jess, strokes her and kisses her in a cute/awkward way. Then, being the Nick Miller we know and love, he thinks she’s too still and checks her pulse. Jess wakes up and laughs at him — and I swear these two would make the loveliest couple on the planet.

Firefly pilot ‘Serenity’ review

A western soap opera for SciFi fans.

firefly_cast

I’m not quite sure how to describe Firefly. As a SciFi/Fantasy fan, I’ve been hearing about this series for quite a few years now. Everyone from Sheldon (TBBT) to my cousin has recommended this show to me, and it wasn’t until this month, when I’d finally gotten back into my love of reading, that I decided to give this a try.
