Jenn’s TV Recap #4!

Okay, I think this is the last one, right? Probably not, but for now, it’s what I’ve got.

Possible Spoilers ahead!

Let’s start with…

Agents of SHIELD (ABC)
Such a great season! Not sure about a few things, like where they’re taking Simmons, and why they had to kill Trip, he was awesome! But I love the introduction of the Inhumans, and I had a feeling than Anya Jiaying was going to be bad. Shame, she was a great character to explore a little more. I kinda felt bad for Ward, for a minute, but then I got over it. Hope Cal comes back. Favorite characters will always and forever be May and Coulson.

American Idol (Fox)
Jax should have won. That is all.

Arrow (CW) That’s a lot of A’s…
I LOVE THIS FREAKING SHOW. Yeah, I am on a Superhero kick, and this is probably #2 but a close #2, I’ll get to #1 later. Fave Characters are still Oliver, Dig, and Felicity, though I have to say Thea didn’t bother me as much as normal. The fight scenes are some of the best on TV, hands down, and I don’t think I’ll ever get bored of watching Merlyn on screen.

CSI: Cyber (CBS)
I’ve given up on all the other CSI, though I will watching the two hour finale send off movie if Grissom comes back! However, nothing else was on, so I decided to watch, because I love the Beek and Bow Wow is so cute and Patricia just won the Oscar, so how could I not? It’s more in the vein of Criminal Minds than a normal CSI show, so that probably helped. It also scared the CRAP out of me with what people can do online. Turn off your location people! Don’t geo tag your photos! Yikes.

The Vampire Diaries (CW)
I’m in it for for the long haul, apparently. Now that Elena is gone, I’m curious to see where it goes. Her send off was HORRIBLE! I mean, really? A Magical Coma? Bleh. I don’t like Enzo. I don’t like their mother. I love Alaric and loved Jo…wtf? At least Jeremy came back to say goodbye. Meh. I’ll watch for Damon.

Scandal (ABC)
Oh. My. God. When Eli screamed OLIVIA I had goosebumps. You go girl! Not that I think it’ll last and the repercussions are going to be bad. Good on Jake for getting the fuck out. I would have, too. Fitz and Mellie are such an odd pair and honestly, he shouldn’t have kicked her out. However, I think she’ll do just fine. 🙂 They need to so something new with Huck, and if they’re smart, they’ll end next season, but I doubt that’ll happen.

Mad Men (AMC)
Weird season. They did the best they could, I guess. I’m glad it’s over, it wasn’t great the last couple of seasons, I wanted more advertising drama, not people drama. Oh well.

The Flash (CW)
#1 Favorite Superhero Show! TIME TRAVEL!! You will always win me with Time Travel. Joe and Barry are the heart and soul of this show. The special effects are amazing. It’s fun and lighthearted and serious and angsty all at the same time. What more could you ask for? A super, Supervillain? Yep, Wells/Thawne was fantastic and I’m so happy they’re gonna find a way to bring Tom Cavanaugh back! I didn’t really like the last bit after Barry came back from the past, I hope they have a good explanation because they have a lot of paradoxes to untangle.

Survivor (CBS)
I only watched half the season. I just wasn’t into it. Glad Mike won, seems like he deserved it.

Supernatural (CW)
I like this season more than last, but I do miss the old school Supernatural. I will say, I am kinda tired of every season ender being about one of the brothers saving the other because of something stupid they did early in the season. As long as Cass and Crowley are back and someone please kill Rowena. Don’t like her. At all.

So, that’s it.

We have So You Think You Can Dance and Under the Dome coming up soon. I may check out one or two other summer shows, but you know, I should be writing!

How about you? Which Finale did you love, which did you hate?

Jenn’s TV Recap Part 3

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. 🙂

Possible Spoilers

The 100


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.

Supernatural


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.

Survivor


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. 🙂

Newsroom


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? 😛
