Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Nothing Personal

They finally got it right! I’ve been wracking my brain for the past 48 hours, trying to determine how best to articulate just what was so right with this week’s episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but in truth, I’m still at a bit of a loss. Was it the action? The character development? Further expansion of the plot? The return of Cobie Smulders’ Agent Maria Hill? Yes, yes, yes, and yes.

Game of Thrones: Oathkeeper

I was cataloguing the remaining Starks and realized that I’d forgotten about Rickon again. John then said, “How much attention did you ever pay to Tommen? And now he’s king.”

Arrow: Seeing Red

My name is Amy, and I have a problem. I have become a nervous biter, thanks to Arrow. It’s the pressure, I just can’t take it. I think I will start my own rating system.

Orphan Black Season 2 Ep 1 – Nature Under Constraint and Vexed

We start with a bang, and everyone’s phones being disconnected not the least bit suspicious. … Yeah I’m not shocked that didn’t go well. This entire diner scene is like the opening to a spy thriller or something. And, well, when the first episode of a show has a woman seeing what looks like her twin calmly stepping in front of the train, we should expect nothing less from the cold open of Season Two.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Providence

I’m on the fence regarding whether I want Ward to truly be a bad guy or just a double agent. Honestly, I think either choice could be interesting, although having him remain bad for an extended period of time would really mess with the dynamic of Coulson’s team and could make for some fun confrontations later on. Imagine what would happen if Ward and May got into a fight now?

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.
