Let’s forget that I’ve been gone for two (or three?) weeks and jump right in with what’s new this week in WebTV! Wednesday was the premiere of Geek & Sundry’s newest series – Caper! Also, BAMF Girls Club and Emma Approved.
This was full of action-y goodness with just the right amount of character development and story to keep the season’s arc revolving around The Clairvoyant, moving forward. In short, it was a finely crafted 43 minutes of TV. And reminded me of good Joss in his heyday.
With a salmon-ladder monologue, the return of Bronze Tiger, and a burgeoning Roy superhero, what’s not to like about this week’s Arrow?
I believe that Ryan Murphy prides himself on ending American Horror Story seasons on a high happy-ending note, as happy as one could be considering the carnage leading up to denouement. Yet he has managed peace, resolution, comeuppances, in the previous two seasons, and I hadn’t considered the same would hold true this time.
This was a sweeping of an out with the old in with the new variety [with characters meeting] comeuppances, by imploring what the episode promises: they go to Hell.
What bothers both of us the most is this really weird move in making the boys some kind of modern Brokeback Mountain. The allusion to a different type of relationship in the earlier episodes was funny, but at this point the dialogue has gone completely soft that it has reached the point where I am not comfortable watching Sam and Dean in these scenes together; it’s just awkward.
This week Transolar Galactica released a new trailer, which isn’t quite as good as new episodes, but at least will get us fans by for another little while as we continue to wait for Season 2. If you’ve never heard of Transolar Galactica before, I have to say you’re missing out.
Women’s weakness and vanity seem to be this season’s central themes And while as a woman I understand it, it still angers me. To borrow a line…why isn’t there more solidarity among women? And how do you protect the very thing that has an internal war going on?
I have a confession to make: An episode like this week’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is what I’ve been waiting for since the series started.
