Arrow Season Two Finale “Unthinkable” — TV EPISODE REVIEW


Manu Bennett and Emily Bett Rickards in Arrow

The battle has arrived. Slade Wilson versus Oliver Queen. It is the moment we have all been waiting for. This season has done an outstanding job of building up this villain and hyping this final encounter. But, did it pull a Smallville Season 8, where the entire season built up the Clark Kent vs Doomsday fight, only to have it last ten seconds? A quick answer to that would be…no. If this show has proved something time and time again, it is this simple fact: Arrow is NOT Smallville. This show is grounded in a little bit more realism, it acknowledges its’ own comic book nature, and it doesn’t shy away from big moments. Continue reading

Arrow “City of Blood” — TV EPISODE REVIEW

“Hey guys, check it out. I’m relevant again!” –Sebastian Blood

Coming off of last week’s shocking death, I was curious to see the tone of the newest episode of Arrow. You get the tone right away, as it starts with a funeral. With only 2 episodes to go, this episode really needed to set a tone for the final two. But did it succeed? Continue reading

Game of Thrones “The Lion and the Rose” — TV EPISODE REVIEW

Natalie Dormer and Jack Gleeson in Game of Thrones

SPOILER ALERT. That is your first warning. Game of Thrones does it again. They give us a fantastic episode that centers around a wedding. Except, not as much bloodshed this time. No bloodshed to be exact. But that ending will have fans cheering for hours. It was nice to see that George R.R. Martin wrote the episode. I like that for the big episodes, or at least the ones that he is passionate about; he gets to come on and write the scenes how he wants. So lets dig into “The Lion and the Rose.” Continue reading

Community “Basic Story” — TV EPISODE REVIEW

Joel McHale, Alison Brie, Jim Rash, Gillian Jacobs, and Jonathan Banks in Community

Community has always had it’s ups and downs. It is a bubble show every single year. Every year, fans pray and hope that this show gets renewed. And it comes down to the wire every year. The ratings are usually never there. But there is such a following with this show that it is difficult to just completely cancel it. Over the years, the term “six seasons and a movie” has become this huge phrase that the fans will shout and tweet whenever they can. It almost seems like Community can make it that far, if they go the distance. Which is why it was kind of humorous to have one of the final episodes of the season, and maybe of the series in general; about Greendale getting sold. Continue reading

Game of Thrones “Two Swords” — TV EPISODE REVIEW

Game of Thrones has always been known for its unrelenting bloodshed and nudity, but it really is one of the smartest shows on television today. There is so much plotting and scheming going on behind the scenes that make this show a real treat. Of course, the real credit goes to the source material, written by the incredibly detailed George R.R. Martin. Last season left the entire world of television viewers shocked and with a horrible feeling in the pit of their stomachs after witnessing one of, if not THE most horrific event ever shown on television with the Red Wedding. But with the aftermath of all of that, where does that leave our characters (the ones that are left, at least). For those of you that are interested, here is the list of all of the characters that will most likely die before the show is over. Continue reading

Arrow “Deathstroke” — TV EPISODE REVIEW

CRIXUS!!!!!!

Arrow keeps killing it, week after week. Aside from that snooze fest of “Birds of Prey” of course. But they returned to from this week with the episode called “Deathstroke” which featured well…Deathstroke. We got a lot of Slade Wilson this week which is ALWAYS an awesome thing. But there were a lot of interesting things in play this week and it led to one of the best episodes of the season so far.

How I Met Your Mother Series Finale “Last Forever” — TV EPISODE REVIEW

Would’ve been perfect had it ended there…

How I Met Your Mother is a milestone show when it comes to sitcoms. It was one of those shows that really brought a new take on sitcoms. There have been serious aspects and some very funny aspects. But the way they have told their story was fresh and new compared to any sitcom out there. They told the stories how we tell stories in every day life. We flash back and sometimes those stories get interrupted by other stories. And they didn’t always work, but when they did work; they REALLY worked. But did the series finale live up to the rest of the series? “Last Forever” was really two episodes (or one hour long episode) and they had a lot of material to throw in here.

How I Met Your Mother “The End of the Aisle” — TV EPISODE REVIEW

This season has definitely been known for its ups and downs, but its good episodes have been really good. If How I Met Your Mother has solidified one thing in my mind, it is that they can nail the serious episodes. This episode, which is the penultimate episode leading up to the one hour season finale next week, was one that had to incorporate serious and comedic elements. And since I already stated how good this show has become at their serious moments, it isn’t hard to predict how I feel about this episode. “The End of the Aisle” definitely had a lot of work to do, as they had to tie off a couple of stories.

The Blacklist “Mako Tanida”– TV EPISODE REVIEW

The Blacklist is one of those weird shows. It is a procedural by nature, but the character of Raymond “Red’ Reddington is just so damn good, that nothing else matters. This show has had an issue lately when it comes to Red. Or should I say, everyone else but Red. Whenever James Spader is not on screen, the show loses about half of my interest. The other characters are just kind of boring. Liz is only interesting when she is with Red and Uncle Mike from Homeland is a bore…most of the time. Then, there is this weeks episde, Mako Tanida. They always name the episodes after whoever the bad guy is and that’s cool I guess. So lets get to business here. Continue reading

The Walking Dead “The Grove” — TV EPISODE REVIEW

“Hey, I have a great idea! Let’s play some fucking Walker Tag!”

This review is going to be a quick one since I am posting it late anyways. I’ve been behind the eight-ball when it comes to The Walking Dead. I, as a fan, wasn’t happy with the content of this show this season. It has been a slow burn. Then, the Governor happened. Then the tank happened. Then all of the episodes after the tragic mid-season finale just disappointed me. I was bored. I cared more about fricken Bob than about Maggie or Daryl. And that is sad. But this week got me back on the right track. Walking Dead has been doing something the past two episodes that I can say was a good idea. Two words. Character development. Continue reading
