Outlander Season 2 Review

Hey People,

Long time no hear from. Shows have been ending and I haven't gotten around to watching them yet. Some I have and just haven't finished the last episode. What can I say? I'm trying really hard not to have them end on me. However, Outlander is the exception. If that's a good thing or a bad thing, you'll find out in this review.

I told you from the beginning that most people probably won't like this season because of it being so political and I turned out to be one of those people. I hated France, which is surprising to me because out of Europe France is my favorite. The only thing I liked about Claire and Jamie being in France is the fact that they spoke french. That's about it. But once they went back to Scotland, the show definitely improved; however, because of the war happening and the bonny prince being a total idiot, things kept getting worse for our 2 heroes. Never mind, I take that back. There were 2 things that were good about France--people speaking French and Fergus. Loved that kid. Wouldn't it be interesting if Fergus all grown up and Bree were to meet. Just putting it out there.

Penny Dreadful Season (Series) Finale?

Hey People,

I'm trying to understand what just happened right now. As you know, I haven't been blogging as much as I used to, but I haven't stopped watching shows either. Actually, I basically dedicate each weekend to binge watching a show. Luckily for me, I was in the mood to watch Penny Dreadful this weekend and it just so happened to be the season finale. Or was that the series finale? Let's just get into it.

I'm confused. I cried. This show has a way of doing that to me sometimes, but I blame that damn music. It's so damn good. But back to the point, Vanessa died, so of course I cried. Her hero finally shows up to save her and she asked to be killed instead--to end her misery. And so he did even though he loved her and was willing to fight for her. How could you not cry? Now as a storyteller I could totally see why the writers would go down this road. It makes sense. The only way for the Devil and Dracula to stop coming after her and the people she loves is for her to stop existing. But here's my thing. I'm not mad or angry like I usually am. Instead, I'm disappointed. We have seen Vanessa have sex with the devil (that scene alone trumped Grey's Anatomy sex with a ghost by a mile) and this season we saw Vanessa having sex with Dracula, so why the hell were we denied sex with the hero, Ethan? 3 seasons! 3 seasons and nothing.

Chicago Fire Season 4 Finale Review

Hey People,

OMG I want that kid! He has to be the cutest kid on TV. Louie! Okay now that that's out of the way, let's get to the nitty griddy. I like lists so that's what I'm going to do.

Casey - I don't think Casey should run for Senate unless the Chicago franchise is willing to add in politics. They're already doing Law so it's not a far-fetched idea. Chicago Politics? It doesn't have a nice ring to it though. Maybe Casey can run for Mayor that way he would hit all 3 shows (mostly P.D. and Law). Just an idea people. But is it wrong of me to wish that Casey did sleep with his publicist or whoever she is to him. I like the drama and we all know I'm not so crazy about Dawson and Casey in the first place

Severide - I should add Kidd to this as well because damn someone is about to get cut. Kidd's ex husband is listening to them have sex. If that's not messed up I don't know what is. But in the ex's defense, he could have been contemplating how to get out of the situation. I know I would be.

Jane The Virgin Season 2 Finale Review

Hey People,

Is Micahel really dead? It's a telenovela. No one is ever dead in this show, hence why Rose is still alive. I wasn't shocked at the reveal. I mean, once I saw her taking off the mask I knew it would be Rose, but this is about Michael. The only reason I might think he's actually dead has nothing to do with the fact that he was shot directly in the heart (bulletproof vest people, it was required during the wedding), but what the narrator said in the first season. Michael loved Jane until his last breath or something to that caliber. Either way he implied Michael will die. I don't know why else you would say it like that in such a sad way on top of it. However, if the writers wanted to kill off a main character in the finale, I think they would have the balls to do the burial in the same episode and even if they did who knows, Michael might have a twin brother.

Limitless Season 1 Finale Review

Hey People,

What a great season from start to finish. I don't usually do this but I'm giving out an award. Limitless wins for most consistent show of the year. There wasn't one episode that I didn't enjoy. Okay maybe the first episode, but in my defense, it was mediocre. I'm so glad it grew into its own. I can't see anyone playing Brian Finch other than Jake McDorman.

I have gotten a lot of predictions wrong on this show. I thought Brian's father would die in the finale. I thought Rebecca would grow feelings for Brian. I thought Boyle would take the pill. I thought Brian wouldn't tell Rebecca everything. I thought Brian wouldn't tell his father everything. I have just been wrong on so many levels with this show, but that's why I like it. I can never guess correctly. It's even better when I can't even guess at all. I'm still hoping Brian's father dies. I need something dramatic and also, I just don't like the guy.

Supergirl Season 1 Finale Review

Hey People,

Since I've recapped all the episodes except the last two, I've decided that there's no reason not to have spoilers in this review. So let me spoil away because there's tons of things we need to discuss, mostly relationships and some future predictions.

I'm surprised that they didn't make this a 2 hour finale because it worked really well when I binged through the last 2 episodes. So let me start off with the good. This show was better than I thought it was going to be. I was thinking of Smallville, but it actually passed my Smallville expectations. It's homey, but also refreshing as in it's nice to see a girl kick some ass. Melissa Benoist was a great pick for Supergirl. Got the dorkiness down and knows when to muscle up and kick some ass. Mehcad Brooks not so much of a great pick, but we'll talk about that later.

Shades Of Blue Season 1 Review (No Spoilers)

Hey People,

I am not going to lie to you. I am not a fan of Jennifer Lopez and I'm most definitely not a fan of Ryan Seacrest, who is the executive producer of the show (He gave me the Kardashians and I will forever hate him for it). But there is something so good about this show that I just had to keep coming back for more. Let me explain.

Summary: J.Lo is a part of a crew of bad cops and she gets caught. The only way for her to stay out of jail is for her to turn on her crew.

At first I thought, I thought this was the dumbest premise ever or more specifically the most cliched. And even though it's definitely cliched, I still found myself watching the next episode to see what happens. There's definitely a few twists throughout the season--one that comes early and you have to rewind just to make sure you saw what you saw--but the biggest eye opener about the show is how dark it is compared to other network television. It's pretty dark people, like even the good guys aren't that good. Hell, by the end of the season I was rooting for J.Lo's character to screw everyone over.
