"OMG so much drama in this episode, you guys, I don’t know where to start. There’s dueling, a ball, more brooding, and Ross gets naked!"
Last night Masterpiece Theater introduced a new generation to 18th Century Cornwall and Ross Poldark played to smoldering perfection by Aiden Turner...
"Despite my gripes over the last few episodes, I must say I loved the conclusion of this season. I was kept at the edge of my seat, I got wrapped up in a few short, but heartfelt moments, and said goodbye to a few characters."
Last night's finale was a perfect end to the debut season of one of our favorite new shows.
"I am getting frustrated with this season! It started really strong then the episodes just kept on blowing hot air. Lots of distracting plot devices, more characters added in, and yet we're farther from a resolution, or the truth for that matter, than before! We're already on episode 8 and the Orphan Black universe is still expanding..."
"From the minute this episode – titled “Hot Mitzvah” begins—YOUNGER is delivering wisdom in spades."
"I hate filler episodes the same way I hate filler books! Last night's episode is one of my least favorite if not the most disappointing of the series so far."
"We get our first scene with Maggie and Josh - two of the most important people currently in Liza’s life - but also more age 26 vs. age 41 perspective with a guest appearance by Kathy Najimy..."
While Liza is tucked away reading Tolstoy, or as she puts it, “Real Housewives of St. Petersburg with dense Russian prose,” before 9 a.m., little does she know that she’s stumbled upon Charles’ secret breakfast spot, and they have another moment that adds to their list of things in common. One thing in his favor? Charles does seem to recognize Liza’s intelligence and ability, especially when she confides that she’s really good at keeping a secret...
With countless predictions and crazy theories surfacing about the finale, “Person to Person” surprisingly delivers a perfectly-paced, deeply layered, peaceful closure to a series focused on the characters.
"In this action-packed season finale, truths are revealed and even more questions arise to allow you to simmer in anticipation for season two."
"Finally, the sestras have reunited – but it’s not cozy. The Castors and Mother Virginia has gotten to our feisty assassin that she didn't feel the warm and fuzzies upon seeing her twin, Sarah. Oh Helena, if only you knew the lengths Sarah went through to get to you! I mean it's not the most ideal situation but at least you guys are back together... sort of."
Somehow, in the midst of RT madness, our Scandal had the time to watch this season finale. Can you say rock star blogger? Enjoy...
"As hard as she’s trying, Liza’s age actually gives her a wealth of experience and insight, and the right people appreciate that. And we see hints of a storm on the horizon, as a love triangle might be brewing..."
"With the episode titled “Kill the Boy” I was anticipating death this episode. While there was some great action and yes, one death, it thankfully wasn’t one of the main characters."
It's the second-to-last episode of the series, and Betty Draper Francis and Sneaky Pete Campbell are faced with major life-altering revelations, while Don continues on his Kerouacian journey across America.
"This whole episode appears to be about people getting revenge on those they feel have slighted them."
With Cyrus and the queen forming an alliance to take the kingdom in hand, it appears as though this episode will set the tone for next week’s finale. The episode opens with the confirmation that the twins are not the descendants of the queen. Eleanor is on the path to finding answers, she knows the queen and Cyrus had something to do with the reveal and she’s going to find out what is going on. The queen also drops a bomb after Eleanor accuses her of killing Robert, her brother...
Did you catch the season finale last night? Raven Presley is here with a recap of our last taste of Storybrooke until the fall...
"Usually I love a show that kicks off with an “Adult Content” warning -- but maybe not so much with this one. Jake is busy recovering at warp speed under Liv’s watchful eye. Quinn and Huck are next door doing all sorts of nasty torture “adult content” things to Russell. They want to understand what Foxtail is and Quinn has the power tools and isn’t afraid to use them. Brutal, just brutal; but then again, when you work for Papa Pope, crap like this is in the job description. We know Russell was trained better than that – he doesn’t need a kneecap or his fingernails – they won't get the Foxtail scoop out of him."
First, the episode title: "Broke and Pantyless.” Priceless! And Josh is a bluegrass player? Did we seriously need any more reasons to love him? As we’re admiring how good Liza’s got it, Kelsey gets a booty call text from her hot Swedish author Anton that she plays off to Liza and Maggie as “work,” though they know what’s up. Later in bed, Liza makes a reference to the Go-Go’s while Josh is thinking Lady Gaga and the fact that they keep having these moments of total wire-crossing is pretty funny.
It’s 1535 and it’s about to get real in England. Informative caption tells us that the Act of Supremacy declared Henry head of the Church of England but Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor (and nephew of Henry’s ex-wife Catherine of Aragon) and Ambassador Chapuys refuse to recognize the King’s new title or his marriage to Anne Boleyn...
With the Sterling Cooper gang transitioning into the office building of McCann Erickson, it becomes very apparent that this move is more like herding lost sheep into the wolves’ den. Devoured by the new agency within their first week, and forced to tackle a checklist of -isms, the executive team is slowly fading away...
The Evil Queen stops at a group of villagers and stalks towards them after stepping out of her buggy. She finds out that the villagers are planning on wedding at the spot where they stand: royal lands. The queen loses her temper and yanks the heart of the groom out of his chest. When her father begins rationalizing to her the benefits of sparing her people (since she is losing her temper on account of what day it is) she angrily crushes the grooms heart -- killing him instantly. As the bride and their family wail over his body, the queen returns to her carriage. She goes to the grave of her beloved Daniel. Seeing a yellow rose sitting on his grave stone, the infuriated queen turns to find her mother standing behind her...
The momentum continues to build and in last nights episode there was some great action as well as the introduction of some new faces.
Jess Moro recaps last night's episode -- including a shocking twist. Spoilers ahead!
I love this urban sci-fi series. I feel I have to stress that every week with every epiosde that airs. The pace is simply amazing, the POV's of the characters gripping, and the revelations are never-ending. Just when you thought you know it all, another false bottom breaks and it's mayhem once again. [Spoiler Alert!]
"Every opportunity the show takes to examine the pressure women feel to be young -- and the many ways we all go about trying to achieve that -- is where they go deeper and really strike gold."
"It is September 1533: Anne Boleyn has made promises that her womb can’t keep. Instead of giving birth to a son, she has given birth to a daughter."
