WOO HOO Everyone!!

If you didn’t check out Veronica and Mason’s story previously, now’s your chance!!
Here’s the cover and the book blurbs! What do you think? Hot, right? Yum!
The Final TV Recap for the 2014 Mid-Season. Wow. It’s really almost 2015 isn’t it?
Time really does fly the older you get, huh?
All righty, here’s part 3, as promised.
I know I’m missing some shows and I know I haven’t finished all the mid-season finales yet, but I think I have enough to go with.
I’m really getting into the whole YA thing, though I can do without the love triangles. They’re mostly annoying. So, I’m happy that it’s no longer an issues on The 100. They got rid of the first love triangle in season one and while the second love triangle was interesting and felt more organic, I’m glad it’s over, too. Now Clarke can get with Bellamy. Hey, I didn’t say I don’t want a little romance in my TV shows, I’m just over the love triangles. Anyway, this is still one of my favorite new shows to
make it to season 2. I know it’s not following the books as closely, which is probably a good thing considering the reviews I’ve read, but the characters on this show are amazing – from the parents to the kids to the creepy Mount Weather people and the Grounders. I can only imagine where this show is going but it has tremendous potential. It doesn’t hurt there are lots of hot people either. <3 Lincoln!
Once Upon A Time
I hated the Snow Queen’s story. They didn’t do it justice at all. I would have rather seen more flashbacks with her and Emma and some other reason for the SQ to be all evil and whatnot. I’m also tired of the writers looping Regina about around again and again for no good reason. I don’t have a very good feeling about the new Queens of Evil story line either, but…I’ll stick around a bit longer and see what happens, but it may be my last season.
I’ll never give up on the Winchesters. I’m not sure how I feel about this season, so far, but the addition of Crowley has been awesome…up until they introduced his mother. The few scenes with them have been funny, but I hope she doesn’t stick around long. The last episode with Jimmy’s daughter was better than I expected. It’s nice how the writers bring back characters and actors from the earlier seasons and keep their stories intertwined with what Sam and Dean are dealing with currently.
I will be honest, I fast forwarded through a bunch of the last several episodes but caught the finale which went down rather well. I still enjoy watching this show because it is a study in human behavior and sometimes it helps me flesh out a character – believe it or not.
I still don’t know why this show was canceled. I don’t get all the Sorkin hate. I don’t see his female characters as anything but female characters. I’ve know girls like each and every one of the characters portrayed on that show. Some are jerks. Some are smart. Some are girlie. Some are weak. Some are powerful. Some are strong. I actually liked all the Sorkin-logues. Above all else, I loved watching the news teams gather the stories and sources and despite the fact that it was all old news that happened months ago, I was sitting at the edge of my couch, pulse racing as I watched many of the shows. It really sucks that it’s over. I would have loved to see their take on recent events including the Sony Hack. Oh well.
So, what has been your favorite show so far this year? Do you enjoy these recaps? Should I keep doing them? 😛
I have enough shows to do another recap!
I’ll probably have one more after this…I know how you love them.
I love this show so much. I mean, I LOVE THIS SHOW SO MUCH! I’ve watched season 1 three times, season 2 twice and most of the eps from season 3 twice as well. I’m watching the mid-season finale again tonight. I love the action, the fight scenes, the feels and the sads. Mostly I love the relationships, they all feel real. Ollie, Diggle, and Felicity have the perfect chemistry and every single scene two or all three of them are in are amazing. The bad guys have great back stories as well and their reasons for being evil or evil-ish are usually very convincing and not usually for stupid nonsensical reasons. (*Cough* OUAT) This will probably go down as my favorite Superhero-ComicBook series ever.
This show is a close second to Arrow. Hey, don’t get me wrong, I LOVED Smallville, but this show is much more fun (for now) and the special effects are great in comparison to what they had to work with back in the Smallville days. Again, the relationships on this show are amazing. Every serious scene between Barry and Joe usually makes me tear up, I really believe them. I think they probably get along very well in real life. It’s hard to fake such great chemistry. I’m super excited to get into the whole Time Travelness of Flash’s world, because it’s a big part, and I’m sure we’ll have a really good explanation for the mid-season finale.
Agents of SHIELD
I didn’t hate the first season like some people did. I thought it was fun and different. This season, so far, has been astounding. So many reveals and action scenes and tender moments and feels! Don’t you love Bad-Ass Skye? She and May need to have a huge fight with someone in the next half of the season. I still love Coulson’s one liners. His delivery always cracks me up. I’m not too happy with what they did to Trip in the finale, so I hope they find a way to bring him back. I’m also looking forward to the Agent 33-Ward situation, that’s gonna be fun to watch.
One of the few cop procedurals I still watch. I can’t help myself, Castle is a great character. As a writer, that’s what I tend to focus on the most. Him being a writer is just icing, ya know. I love when the show is silly or has a wacky premise or potential conspiracy theory type plot or mystery. They do them so well. The serious ones are fine, too, and I’m so happy that Beckett and Castle’s relationship is still the same for the most part. Despite being a hopeless romantic, sometimes when TV couples get together the fizz just fizzles out.
I freely admit the only reason I started watching this show is because of Elijah and Hayley. Their chemistry on The Vampire Diaries was unbelievably hot. I don’t know why they had to mess with it so much. I’m kinda not invested in them anymore. However, thanks to some clever plotting and mama drama, I’m enjoying Klaus again. He’s a dick, and he’s always had a great reason to be a dick, but now I want him to be a dick. I like evil Klaus way more than when anyone tries to redeem him. I like the original Kol more, too, but the kid playing him now is cute, and I like him with Davina, so we’ll see what happens.
The Vampire Diaries
I’m not sure why I’m watching this show still, probably because Alaric is back, I love him. The show has SO many inconsistencies even I’ve noticed them, but Damon is fun to watch when he’s bad and I think Caroline and Stefan would have been good together, but like The Originals, it’s a little too late now, I won’t buy it. I think it’s time for Elena to make her final choice between the brothers and put this show to bed. I’d LOVE to see a few of the characters move over to The Originals because they’re good characters for the most part, it’s just the whole love triangle thing is over and done, cooked and burnt.
Another procedural I watch, but, I have to admit, I’ve been fast forwarding through parts here and there, because, for the most part, it’s always the same story. I think it’s time for someone in the group to be in jeopardy again, or the team as a whole needs another Reaper or something. I like that they are giving the characters more personal life stuff to draw off because it wasn’t something they did often in the first few seasons. I’m not really sure what else they can do, not that they have to, it’s still a highly rated TV show, I’m just not as excited as I used to be to watch. I’ll never stop, though. Duh.
So I think I have another handful of shows left for this fall season. What did you think of the season so far? Are you watching any Winter shows like Agent Carter?!? I’m already watching The Taste.
