Game of Thrones: The Lion and The Rose

I haven’t been moved to write fanfic until now. I want SO BADLY for Jaime and Brienne to get married and have an awkward life with their giant, gangly children at Casterly Rock. It’s not about romance and love. It’s about those two being so effing perfect for each other as life partners. They already bicker like they’ve been married for twenty years.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Turn, Turn, Turn

On any other show, this would probably be the mother of all season finales, but no, we’ve got six more episodes to go. The completionist in me is glad, because on the off chance we don’t get a season two, the writers and producers should have plenty of time to wrap this up in the episodes that are left.

Game of Thrones: Two Swords

The Hound is my spirit animal. Yes, he’s gone mercenary and plans to sell Arya to Lyssa Arryn (like Arya would even let that happen). But, ow that he’s liberated himself from Joffrey and the Lannisters, he’s become such a witty badass.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: End of The Beginning

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has not yet been renewed for season two, so it remains to be seen if the writers and creators will have a chance to rectify these missteps. I feel that the show is always taking one step forward and two steps back, glancing up against greatness, but routinely falling short and settling for mediocre. Marvel fans, Whedon fans, and most importantly, Agent Coulson, deserve better.

Once Upon A Time: Quiet Minds

Yeah, I groaned when I saw the candelabra in the opening title card. I’m not against the idea of Lumiere; I could just see Show going down the silly path and also throwing in a talking tea pot that’s friends with Belle’s chipped cup. Feck off, cup.

Arrow: Suicide Squad

Question: what’s better than a tech-geek blond, a dude in a green hoodie, a chick in black leather and a black driver with huge biceps? Give up? The answer is a suicide squad!

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Yes Men

The true hallmark of a Joss Whedon show is a strong female protagonist. In this week’s episode of S.H.I.E.L.D. this trope was taken one step further with the arrival of Lorelei, an Asgardian escapee who can turn men to her will with a touch. Since she makes all of the male agents on the Bus drooling idiots, we are left with Simmons, May and special guest star Lady Sif to take care of the mess Lorelei has wrought.
