The Fall ‘My Adventurous Song’ review: Upgrading the creepy factor

SG TF104

I finished the last episode of The Fall a couple of hours ago, and it’s taken me this long to stop double (and triple) checking my locks. However brilliant this series is, and however problematic on some respects, if I had to use only one word to describe it, I’d go with “creepy”.

Graceland review: Tripp Vanderbilt is carrying a gun

graceland

I’ve been looking forward to the premiere of Graceland for two reasons mainly: 1. I watch a lot of SVU marathons on USA so I’ve seen the commercials a million times and 2. I love me some Tripp Vanderbilt (of Gossip Girl fame, if you weren’t aware).  On Graceland Tripp plays a charming recently graduated FBI Agent who moves to a lovely beach house in Malibu with a bunch of other special agents who are led by the nurse who used to date Bailey on Grey’s Anatomy (apparently his name is ‘Briggs’ on this show).

Yesterday, along with everyone else, I watched the series premiere of ABC Family’s The Fosters. The series has been gaining some buzz on account of Jennifer Lopez’s executive producer credit and that it has an interracial lesbian couple at its helm.

What are the best Buffy the Vampire Slayer episodes to show someone who’s never watched?

buffy 401

Yesterday, I noticed someone had googled the phrase “Buffy episodes to show someone who’s never watched Buffy” and landed on NoWhiteNoise. Unfortunately, they probably didn’t find what they were looking for. There’s no post on here geared towards an answer, but it did make me wonder which episodes I would initially show someone if I ever wanted to convert them into a Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan.

Teen Wolf ‘Tattoo’ recap: This fleeting feeling is ephemeral

teen wolf scott

We open with a wounded Isaac, too weak to get up on his own. An attractive girl picks him up, tells him someone’s claws caused the wounds on his neck. “I can’t remember anything,” he tells her. “That’s also how they steal memories,” she responds. Um… what? Soon enough they’re racing down a green screen with these twins chasing after them, trying all as they can to scratch any bit of flesh.

lostgirl208

During this week’s four episodes, we get to learn a lot about Dyson and Lauren’s past while delving deeper into the Lauren side of the triangle. But does it work?

Before we begin, let me say I should actually be writing a paper and accompanying speech, so I’ve got to bang this one out quickly.

Game of Thrones ‘The Rains of Castamere’ recap: The Fall of the House of Stark

Well, that happened. In the game of thrones, the North has been eliminated. The Lannisters are racking up victories all over the place, aren’t they? At the end of the day, honour counts for very little while ruthlessness—and a healthy willingness to stab someone in the back—go a long way, a little something I learned years ago from Survivor.

There’s a lotta good television out there that I just can’t bring myself to watch. Hell, the only reason I jumped on the Lost bandwagon is because I pretty much had to watch it for a grad school class called, “Time Travel in Television.” The trials of higher education, amirite?

Orphan Black season one finale review: Kindred spirits

orphan black 110

Basically, if Tatiana Maslany doesn’t at least get an Emmy nomination, we should all just give up and go home. What would be the point of anyone trying anything ever again? I haven’t been reviewing this series week-by-week, but basically after the credits every episode, I’m completely captivated by her performance(s).
