Doctor Who

Twelve is a fucking douche…and I’m loving it. They weren’t kidding about making him dark and serious,his lines were hilarious and I’ve never wanted to punch him before. This episode startled me,but I like that The Doctor is less human, more cynical and darker. The War Doctor showed us how serious he can be, so Twelve being like this isn’t a big deal,in my opinion.

I pitied that poor Dalek,though. The self-loathing and cannibal tendencies he got in the end because of The Doctor was so sad and it became a decent creature. Tsk,tsk-They should have just put it out of its misery. Speaking of misery,who is that woman who keeps saying they’re in heaven? The Doctor doesn’t believe in god or Satan and considers everything to be scientific, so how can heaven as we know it truly exist? It’s a bit deep for the show and I’m uneasy about watching the puzzle unfold.

Pretty Little Liars

This episode. I knew Mona would die,but ick-So messy. Jesus,Ali-Show some fucking class. That much blood is ridiculous and it’s still possible that DNA evidence could have been left behind. I wanted to slap the smug look on her face and don’t get why anyone would believe a word out of that bitch’s mouth. Emily,you’re an idiot for picking Ali over Paige.

I wonder who discovered the mess in Mona’s room. It didn’t sound like Hannah and she would have been a mess either way. It was probably Emily since she’s a sensitive soul,but no confirmation. I think the liars will avenge Mona-She helped them in the end,risked her safety and apologized. It was nasty to kill her like that,they’re not monsters and one of them has got to feel guilty for what happened. Mona’s mother…I sniffled,I just couldn’t help it.  That doll was so fucking creepy. Ali and Mona’s doll obsession-I never liked it.

Mona was Jenna’s stand in,but she was a great villain. She and Mike were really cute,too. He’s going to be a mess and he’ll need Aria right now. Hopefully she makes time for him instead of helping Ezra make more pie. Poor Spencer-She’s screwed and if they find Melissa’s tape,it’s only going to make things worse. Hopefully,it gets buried before the cops can find it.

 

Orphan Black

This episode was so intense. I couldn’t even keep up with my tweets!

I loved Donnie and Allison’s scenes,as well as Rachel and Ethan’s. All this time,she’s been wondering why Sarah is so special and gets to have children,it turns out that Sarah isn’t special,she’s a failure.

Tony is so hot and even if I normally hate incest,I can see myself shipping him and Felix. Hell,even with Sarah. Aside from Soccer Cop, I can get into those two. I loved Cophine’s scenes and hope that Cosima isn’t going to die. It would be depressing, but at the same time,I’d get it if they did kill her. Normally,I’m ambivalent about Cosima,but she cracked me up this episode. Her pwn’ing Scott and the others,then getting baked with Delphine was awesome.

The more we find out,the more that I pity Beth. She was sitting on something huge and she stumbled across a clone who had a connection to her boyfriend. Maybe she knew she’s probably die either way and beat them to the punch. I’m curious as to what Paul’s secret is.

Kira wasn’t creepy and psychic in this episode,which is great. Ethan shouldn’t have read her “The Island of Doctor Moreau”,though. She’s a little girl,it’s creepy and most kids aren’t Rachel. I loved the family reunion and it drew away from how annoying Kira is.

Silicon Valley

This episode was funny,even if all the dick jokes were juvenille. Jared cracked me up with his PTSD and Shannon and Richard were cute. Last week was dull and this was amazing-I’m so over the Game of Thrones bullshit.

Game of Thrones

This was so, so fucking gross. I didn’t think things could get worse than they did when a pregnant woman died,but Oberyn’s heath was hideous. I hate Ramsey as it is, but what he did was nasty,too. I really,really wanted Oberyn to win or at least stay alive. One more life ruined by the fucking Lannisters. How can anyone like those stupid assholes? Dany/Jorah was painful to watch. Sansa and Arya were the best parts of this extremely depressing episode. So was Missandei and Grey Worm, as well as Dany braiding Missandei’s hair.

Orphan Black

Game of Thrones and Silicon Valley weren’t on this past weekend and I’m doing a different post on Revolution,since it’s been canceled.

This show just keeps getting better. Helena was hilarious and so was Allison. I loved the bonding between Sarah and Helena-It was too cute. I don’t know enough about genetics to process the technical portion,but if they’re not clones,what are they? We really need Dr. Duncan to reveal more. If Rachel became the way she is because of her mother,then she’s slightly easier to understand. Paul is beyond lame and any time with him is wasted. If Mrs. S hadn’t brought over tea to talk business,I’d be annoyed.

Poor Allison-She can’t trust anyone but Felix,can she? I wish Angie would just go away. Her character is unnecessary, Art gets better results and her attempts never work. The fact that they had to bring back Vic is just sad. I’m just hoping that some good comes out of those scenes and this storyline.

Sunday’s reviews

It’s mother’s day, so I missed Once Upon a Time.  I no longer watch Salem and plan to do reviews on Silicon Valley after Revenge airs its finale.

Game of Thrones: I was spoiled,but it was still great to see.  I didn’t know about Dany’s part and enjoyed it a lot,as well as the council talking about her. Shae looks bitter and it adds to things-So does Jamie. He made a deal, although there’s no point asking for the Wall. It never happens and he’ll probably die the way Ned did. Tyrion’s speech was the best part and they really are assholes.

Revenge: What the serious fuck, show? This is almost like “How I Met Your Mother”, only there were delicious parts. I’m done with the show,but it did have its moments. We all saw Charlotte realizing Jack set her free and some of us guessed that Aiden would die,but I didn’t think that Conrad would. I didn’t think Victoria would wind up in an asylum,either. Gideon has a problem the way the rest of his family does,but Daniel suffering makes up for leaving the poor prostitute for dead.

Emily walking away was epic,though. If only it were enough-David is alive. He’s the world’s worst father,he’s creepy as hell, he scared one daughter and made her distraught and ruined Emily’s life. She threw away chances for happiness, children and any kind of life, all to get revenge on the people who ruined her and her father’s lives. Why the hell couldn’t he do it?

I can’t stand it when shows kill the premise of the show. It makes no sense,it pisses off the fans and S4 will have a lot less returning viewers. I could have watched Silicon Valley tonight-At least it would be consistent. No one’s leaving Palo Alto, going fishing in Alaska or anything analog.

Sunday’s reviews

Unfortunately, I missed Once Upon A Time and the first had of Ressuerction. I’ll review them tomorrow, but today, I’m sharing my thoughts on Game of Thrones.

This episode was perfection and Joffrey’s death, Loras and Oberon flirting, Ramsey getting yelled at and of course, Joffrey’s death. The way his eyes bugged out made me and everyone else do the happy dance. I can’t wait until the next death occurs and I’m glad they’re being so swift and precise this season. Oberyn was awesome and his comments to Tywin were fun.  Brienne and Cersei’s scenes were awesome. Brienne deserves Jaime a lot more and their kids won’t be crazy, inbred psychos. It isn’t like Cersei even wants him anymore-His hand repulses her.

Natalie Dormier is one of the best actresses for period pieces and anything involving the past. Her gown was stunning, Margarey is awesome and she’s a trooper for trying to keep calm and survive having such a humiliating wedding.

Why did they show Tyrion eating a sausage? That was gross and I’m just glad that I ate dinner by then. I felt so bad for him when he rejected Shae and sent her away. She really would have been killed and he has a duty to Sansa. I’m sure that he’ll be happy for her if he finds out that she ran away.

I really, really hate Ramsey. I don’t know if that girl was his girlfriend or sister, but hunting that girl down for such a stupid reason wasn’t bizarre, it was gross. Torturing Theon and castrating him without orders was serious bullshit. Everyone knows that hostages are powerful leverage when they’re alive and in one piece. Theon is useless and I’m glad that the Boltons can’t have the Iron Islands..  Bran’s scenes were interesting, but out of sorts. It should have occurred next week and had a serious disconnect from the others. Even the Baratheon scenes were, it was just cute when Melissandra interacted with Shireen.

Why does Game of Thrones always play such creepy music? It’s a bit too effective for foreshadowing and makes my skin crawl.

 

Aside

Last week, Resurrection and Believe premiered. I’ve never been able to start reviewing shows because I missed the train for most of my shows. I still plan on trying to review them, but these have given me a chance to make a fresh start, much like Resurrection. Both have to do with faith and belief, but they have one big difference: The protagonist.

Resurrection is about an FBI agent who’s charged with taking a missing boy to social services. When Jacob tells him where his home is, the agent takes him back to Arcadia, MO. Jacob Langston turns out to be the dead son of the Henry and Lucille family. As everyone starts to question Jacob’s identity, another miracle happens. Another character, Elaine sees her dead father again after a confrontation with her brother.

This show was extremely interesting and character-driven, with Omar Epps as Agent Bellamy, the agent who takes Jacob home to Arcadia. I’d give this show four stars.

Believe premiered on Monday night and went to its usual time slot, Sundays at 9 p.m. The show is about a young girl named Bo who possesses Supernatural powers. Whoever has her can use her as a weapon for good or evil. A criminal named Tate is her reluctant protector.  In the end of the premiere, it’s revealed that Tate is her father, although neither of them are aware.

Both shows are feel good and a pleasant alternative to all the current mid-season shows, but at the end of the day Resurrection is the show that’s worth watching. Believe is too much like Touch and the main difference is that Bo can talk and her father doesn’t know he’s her father. The supernatural portion is an overused trope and NBC already has two shows that either have a Supernatural element(Revolution)or are Supernatural, like Dracula. Believe doesn’t have enough to make it stand out on its own. I’d give it three stars.

Feel-good shows that add substance to the mix
