TV Review: Timeless: The Capture of Benedict Arnold(1.10)

                          Timeless: The Capture of Benedict Arnold(1.10)Review
  • I liked that Agent Christopher asked Lucy to keep a file on her children in the time machine because she doesn't want to loose her children and not even remember them.
  • I liked that when Mason turned up at Jiya's apartment to have a private talk with Rufus that Rufus pointed out that it was her apartment so she shouldn't have to leave.
  • I found it a bit odd that Mason came over drunk to talk to Rufus about how he never wanted to things to get this bad and that Ritten House knows that Rufus has been tampering with the recordings and that if he doesn't do it right on the next mission he can't protect Rufus and his family from them anymore.
  • I liked that when dealing with Benedict Arnold's capture that Flynn's plan could be to help Arnold succeed in his plans or kill George Washington before he even became president or something else, I just like that there were so many possibilities to what Flynn's plans could detail.
  • I liked that when Lucy mentioned that Arnold once spent 80,000 dollars on a bottle of wine that Wyatt asked who does that and Rufus says a douche would.
  • I was surprised when Flynn actually helped out Lucy, Wyatt and Rufus by saying that they were spies rather than traitors so that Washington's men would let them go because he wants them to help him with something.
  • I liked that Lucy, Wyatt and Rufus all don't trust Flynn but since Flynn's true goal is to stop Ritten House before it even gets started they can see how it might not be such a bad idea to work with him on this one since it would be the end of Flynn traveling through time and messing up history and the end of Ritten House.
  • I was surprised that Flynn somehow knows who killed Wyatt's wife and I can see why this piece of information would get Wyatt willing to work with Flynn briefly.
  • I was surprised to find out that Flynn is aware that Rufus has been recording the missions.
  • I like that even after they agree to work with Flynn that Lucy, Wyatt and Rufus are still talking about whether or not it's a good idea to help him and they all seem pretty unsure of if it is.
  • I liked how Lucy convinced Arnold that he could trust him and that she made him believe that he has met Wyatt before.
  • I disliked that Flynn just started killing people because he wanted to talk to Arnold alone since he's involved with Ritten House. I liked that when everyone became chaotic and Wyatt made sure to keep Arnold from leaving and Rufus asked what was happening that Wyatt told him he was managing the situation.
  • I was surprised when Flynn told Arnold that they were time travelers but I wasn't surprised that he didn't believe him.
  • I liked that while threats of violence didn't get Arnold to talk but Lucy using what she knew about Arnold in order to empathsis with him did get him to tell him what he knew about Ritten House.
  • I was surprised to learn that Ritten house was founded by just one person which makes it a bit easier to take it down.
  • I liked that Flynn appealed to Arnold's love for his wife in order to get them a meeting with David Rittenhouse.
  • I liked that Rufus has decided that now all that they have to do is take down one man in order to free himself and his family from Ritten house that he is okay with that.
  • I like that Wyatt is also okay with killing one evil man in order to save the lives of hundreds of people.
  • I like that Lucy is worried about the affect that destroying Rittenhouse could have on history and I liked how Wyatt told her that history isn't an excuse to sit back and do nothing when they can something to protect innocent lives. I like that Wyatt told Lucy that he knows her well enough by now that he knows what she really believes in is saving lives.
  • I liked Wyatt made sure that Lucy was okay without what they were about to do before he answered if they were ready or not, I just like that he left the decision up to her.
  • I find it sad how Flynn plans to only see his family one last time if he succeeds in bringing them back because he knows he's become someone else by doing horrible things to bring back his family and he doesn't want to bring the type of person he has become into his home.
  • I liked that when Arnold said it would be best not to bring everyone to the meeting that Flynn said these are idiotic unenlightened times but he understands so they won't bring Rufus with them.
  • I find it odd that David Rittenhouse seems to be obsessed with clocks and he makes his son make a whole lot of them.
  • I find it a bit disturbing how David Rittenhouse's son, John recited his father's ideals about what Ritten house is and how most people shouldn't have a voice but be controlled from the shadows.
  • I was very worried when David Rittenhouse figured out that they were there to kill them and it was chillingly the way he killed Arnold like it was nothing.
  • I liked that Rufus came to rescue them right before David Rittenhouse was going to kill them.
  • I found it oddly enjoyable watching Wyatt and Flynn fight off Rittenhouse's men together.
  • I'm glad that Flynn killed David Rittenhouse but I wonder how much of a difference it would make since he already has so many followers.
  • I disliked that Flynn wanted to kill Rittenhouse's son but I liked that Lucy, Wyatt and Rufus were all against it and agreed to work together in order to stop him.
  • I liked that Lucy was able to stop Flynn from killing Rittenhouse's son but I disliked that he kidnapped her because of this and I'm now worried about her.

TV Review: Notorious: Chase(1.07)

                                                            Notorious: Chase(1.07)
  • I find it interesting that the episode started 48 hours earlier with Jake going on the run which just seems like a bad idea.
  • I like that Jake's brother is the one that is representing him in court and that he's willing to do anything to get his brother free. I also like that he's telling Jake that he can't work on the case because he can't be objective right now.
  • I like that Julia is just really worried about what's going to happen with Jake as his friend.
  • I like that Jake ends up staying with Julia because the media is surrounding his house and his brother's house.
  • I like that Jake wants Julia to allow the DA to try him on the air before it goes to trial because it would allow him to learn how the prosecution is going to try the case.
  • I was surprised to learn that Sarah had a loan shark for some reason and that she was trying to get away from some guy named Brian.
  • I find it interesting that Sarah was using a loan shark to pay his gambling debts.
  • I liked that Julia ended her deal with the DA because she doesn't like that he's using her show to get her friend convicted for a murder that she believes that he didn't commit.
  • I think it's pretty dumb that Jake cut his tracking anklet because he wanted to personal look into a new lead in Sarah's case by himself.
  • I was surprised that it seemed like Jake's brother and Ella helped Jake get off his tracking anklet.
  • I was surprised to learn that Sarah's baby is still alive and that Jake suspect that he she maybe his biological daughter which isn't true but instead the father of the baby was actually Sarah's baby.
  • I liked that Jake had Julia make a deal with the DA in order to not have a lot of press at his being taken into jail again.
  • I liked how Julia convinced the DA that Sarah's brother is the one that killed his sister which leads to him getting arrested and Jake getting released from jail.
  • I'm a bit surprised that it seems that Oscar was in on the murder of Sarah with her brother.
  • I find it interesting that someone named Dana called Julia because she needs Jake as a lawyer.

TV Review: Sweet/Vicious: All Eyez on Me(1.05)

                                        Sweet/Vicious: All Eyez on Me(1.05)Review
  • I felt so bad for Rachel a girl who was assaulted by a guy that worked for a car service who drive drunk people home.
  • I like that Harris is working with the campus patrol guy in order to figure out what is going on with the recent attacks on campus.
  • I liked that Jules tried to use Greek mythology to indirectly broach the topic of accidently killing his brother, it doesn't really go anywhere of course.
  • I like that it turns out that Tyler is an art major who is doubting himself and I like that Jules wants to throw him a pop up art show and I like that Kennedy wants to help her throw it.
  • I found it awkward how Ophelia ran into the guy she hooked up with in the first episode while she was looking for the driver that assaulted Rachel.
  • The driver being the son of the president of their college is something that I think could cause big problems in the future.
  • I like that Jules is doing her best to support Tyler and be a good girlfriend to him when it comes to setting up the art show.
  • I like the way that Harris and the campus patrol guy interact with each other and I find it interesting that they found out that Ophelia might have something to do with their investigation.
  • I understand why Ophelia was mad at Jules for not asking anything about the mission she went on when she almost got ran over on said mission.
  • I felt bad for Tyler when he started getting frustrated by people not getting his art and I like that even though the whole art show was giving him anxiety that Tyler still let Jules know that he thought what she did was sweet and that he knows she had the best of intentions but he just can't handle being there right now.
  • I like that Ophelia and Kennedy were both comforting to Jules after her fight with Tyler although in different ways.
  • I liked that Ophelia told Jules that she would understand if she wasn't in the mood for a take down and I liked that Jules said she wanted to punch someone by ten.
  • I liked that Harris learned that Ophelia met Jules because she found her necklace and I like that he was connecting the dots until Ophelia made up a story that made the two events seem unrelated.
  • I liked that when Ophelia made a quick exit after her talk with Harris she said she was going to class and then he looked at her weird and then she said she meant she's going to smoke weed which he said makes sense.
  • I liked that the plan was for Ophelia to be bait and that Jules would wait at the spot that they thought that they rape the girls only they didn't go to the spot that they thought he would.
  • I was really afraid for Ophelia when things didn't go as plan with it being at a different location and their being two of them but luckily she was able to taze them both.
  • I liked that when Ophelia was acting like she was totally fine and Jules could tell she wasn't that Jules made sure that they didn't do the takedown that night.
  • I felt so bad for Jules when Nate was calling what he did to her cheating as if she did something wrong or had a say in any of it and how he wanted them to all hang out again and move past it, I wanted so badly for Jules to say something to him about how wrong he is but I understand why she couldn't find her voice then.
  • I like that Harris is figuring out that Ophelia is lying to him about what she and Jules are doing together.
  • I was worried about Jules when one of the guys stabbed her in the leg.
  • I'm worried about what's going to happen now that Ophelia taking down one of the guys was caught on several students Iphones.

TV Review: Scream: When a Stranger Calls(2.12)

                                         Scream: When a Stranger Calls(2.12)Review
  • I think it's twisted that the killer killed the deputy and then gave Emma and Audrey the keys to their handcuffs simply because he didn't want them to be able to stop playing his game.
  • I liked that when Emma took the guy with her when she and Audrey escaped that Audrey pointed out that she didn't think that them having it was a good idea.
  • I think it was freaky that the killer called the gas station right when Emma and Audrey walked into it and asked to talk to Emma. I also think it's twisted that the killer told Emma that if she or Audrey turned themselves in or were caught by the police that he would kill someone they love.
  • I like that Brooke still believes that Emma and Audrey are innocent but I understand why Gustavo had a harder time believing it since he knows them less and Audrey did go after him for being the killer pretty hard so I can understand that from his point of view Audrey looks guilty.
  • I don't like that Emma went to Kieran and told him her and Audrey's plans because I don't really trust the guy.
  • I liked that when Brooke visited Noah that she opened up a bit about how she misses her dad, it was a nice moment.
  • I liked that Noah also believes that Emma and Audrey didn't do what the police are saying they have done.
  • I liked that when after Emma called Noah and talked to both him and Brooke and told her that they were hiding out in the movie theater that Brooke and Noah decided that they have to meet up with them because they can't let their friends go through all this alone.
  • I like that Emma's mom doesn't think for a second that Emma is guilty and that she's now just worried about what could have happened to her daughter.
  • I liked that when the killer called Brooke to taunt her about her dad's death that Emma took the phone away from her and told the killer where she was and to come and get her. I like that Emma has decided that she's done running and that now she and the others are going to take the killer down once and for all.
  • I like that Noah started going on about how if this was a movie they would be at the unmasking stage and I liked that Brooke told him not to go all meta on her since she needs his help guarding the door.
  • I liked that after it's been awhile that Audrey started to doubt the killer would actually show up since the killer loves to be the one in control of a situation not to have someone else be the one that has more control for once and I like that Emma knows the killer isn't going to be able to resist this chance at getting them.
  • I understand why Brooke and Noah won't let Gustavo in when he comes to the theater while their waiting for the killer to show but since he got a text that he thought was for Brooke that told him to come I think we can trust that he's not the killer.
  • I think it was smart of the killer to lure everyone away from the doors by playing his videos of his kills on the movie screen.
  • I was very worried about Brooke when the killer stabbed her but luckily the stab wound didn't kill her.
  • I liked that Emma told Noah to call the police after Brooke was stabbed even though they are after her and I liked that she didn't want to leave Brooke's side but I was glad that Kieran did convince her to leave in the end.
  • I felt bad for Emma when she was blaming herself for Brooke getting stabbed and Audrey being presumably taken by the killer.
  • I liked that when Gustavo broke down at the hospital after hearing that Brooke was hurt and that when his dad saw him he gave him a comforting pat on the leg to let him know that he was there for him.
  • I liked that Noah convinced the Sheriff to look at Eli as a suspect rather than Emma and Audrey.
  • I liked that Emma told Kieran that she had to go after the killer on her own this time because she can't let anyone else die because of her.
  • I think it's messed up that the killer thinks the bond of killing with someone is similar to being in love with someone.
  • I feel so bad for Eli even though he was telling the truth about Kieran being the one who stabbed him and about all the other messed up things he did Emma believed Kieran over him and she shot him and then Kieran killed him once Emma discovered Kieran was the real killer.
  • I liked that what tipped Emma off was that Kieran used a phrase that was similar to a phrase that the killer had told her just a few minutes ago.
  • It was really surprising seeing how much Kieran's demeanor changed once the truth was revealed he was like an entirely different person clearly unhinged, violent and a whole lot more interesting than he has ever been in the past.
  • I liked that when Kieran tried to taunt Emma with the fact that she just told him she loved him earlier that not that Emma tells him that she doesn't feel that way anymore now that she knows who he really his.
  • I liked that when Audrey pointed out how pathetic it is that Kieran whole motive was daddy issues that he said that killing people is way more fun than going to therapy, his entire view on life is just demented.
  • I liked that Kieran went on a monologue about his and Piper's whole plan and I liked that Audrey told Kieran how she ruined their plan by shooting and killing Piper.
  • I liked that when Kieran was going to kill Emma that Audrey pushed a chair in his way which gave Emma the chance to run from him.
  • I liked that even though Audrey was being held captive by Kieran that she still told Emma to run because at least one of them should live and if at least one of them live his sick plan can't succeed.
  • I liked that Emma and Audrey got the upper hand on Kieran and that while Emma pointed out that now she can decided how he'll die that she tells him he's not going to die today instead his going to rot in prison for what he did.
  • I liked that Noah's ending speech was more about hope for the future and the idea that people can move forward with their lives after all the tragedies.
  • I liked that we saw that Gustavo and his dad have become closer and that things are going well with his and Brooke's relationship and I liked seeing Emma and Audrey hanging out again.
  • I find it interesting that it seems that Brandon James is still alive and mad that Kieran wore his mask.

Top 8 Things That Will Make Me Instantly Inerested in Picking Up a Book

1. Witches: I really love witches because I find their powers to be the most interesting and I like the fact that they are almost always girls as well. I also like that witches have a lot less defined mythology than vampires or werewolves which makes their stories a lot harder to predict which is usually a good thing.
2. Dimensional Travel: The idea of traveling across dimensions is a really interesting one that has seemingly endless possibilities to it but it's also one that I really don't see all that often in books which I think is a shame. The only series I read that has dimensional travel have been Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle and The Chronicles of Narnia.
3. Friends to Lovers: This is one of my favorite romance tropes so if I book has it I'm much more likely to read it because I just like stories about people evolving from friends to lovers because I find those type of stories to be very sweet.
4. Deals with Mental Health: I've also been very interested in mental health so if a book is going to be dealing with mental illness I'm going to be interested in reading it because this is a topic that I'm just very interested in.
5. Magical Girls: I love Magical Girl series and I have loved them since I first watched Sailor Moon back in elementary school and my love for them has only grown over time so if a series sounds similar to a magical girl series I'm definitely going to check it out. I will admit I haven't seen any novels about magical girls so this is more of what would make me pick up a manga or watch an anime rather than pick up a book topic.
6. Shy Main Character: I'm a really shy person so when a book has an actually shy main character I'm interested in it because I usually don't relate all that much with fictional characters because they're all so much more out going than I am so I have a special place in my heart for stories about shy characters.
7. If it Reminds Me of Something Else I loved: A lot of times I start reading or watching series simply because something about it reminds me of another entirely unrelated series that I loved so I pick up that series because I think it could be similar to the series I loved. I can't really explain what it is that draws me in exactly to this type of series because it's always different each time but it's that certain familiarity that can draw me in.
8. If It's Written by Writer I love: This one is kind of a no brainer if you loved something an author wrote you should check out the other things they wrote and hopefully you'll like them too and then you'd have just add a whole bunch of books to your reading list.

TV Review: Flower Boy Next Door

                                                 Flower Boy Next Door Review
Flower Boy Next Door is about a young woman named Go Dok-mi who lives her life isolated from the rest of the world in her apartment which she works as an editor from and she can stay in her apartment for months on end. Dok-mi prepares to be by herself because she feels very nervous about meeting and interacting with people but despite her desire to remain distant from the rest of the world she does develop a crush on the guy that lives in the building across from and she spends quite a bit of her free time spying into the man's apartment from her apartment. One day when spying into the man's apartment she notices that there is a new man, Enrique Guem and this one has noticed her looking into the apartment which leads to him confronting her about her spying and this relationship eventually develops into a sort of friendship.

When Enrique finds out that Dok-mi generally doesn't venture out into the world he makes it his personal mission to bring her out into the world and show her how beautiful life outside her apartment can be. Over the course of Enrique working on getting Dok-mi to come out into the world the two of them start develop not only a friendship with each other but also romantic feelings although neither seemed all that willing to act on them with Dok-mi not quite having the courage to tell someone what she really wants yet and Enrique thinking that Dok-mi should be with Oh Jin-rak a web comic creator who has lived next door to Dok-mi for years and says that he is in love with her.

This series is one that is very sweet and cute with the way that it presents love as wanting to do everything you can to help support the person you love to fulfill their life long dream. This drama is one that is all about the relationship that the characters have with each other and it turns out that these relationships were compelling enough to carry this drama. Overall I really, really like this series and I thought that the characters were well thought out and that the main relationship was very heartwarming. Please tell me your thoughts on this series.

TV Review: Teen Wolf: Radio Silence(6.05)

                                             Teen Wolf: Radio Silence(6.05)Review
  • I think one of the scariest things about the train station is that everyone there is just so calm, quiet and accepting of whatever is going to happen to them since that just makes them more vulnerable.
  • I like that once Stiles wakes up from his trance that he starts asking questions about what is going on and starts to look for clues to where he is and how he can leave.
  • I was surprised to see that Peter has also been taken by the ghost riders since he hasn't been mentioned in so long but I guess that kind of makes sense with the way that the ghost riders work.
  • I found it a bit odd that after Peter got annoyed that Stiles was there that he went back to just waiting for his train to come and then Stiles had to remind him that the ghost riders just come into the station with hostages.
  • I found it interesting that Peter escaped Eichen House the night that the pack broke Lydia out of Eichen House.
  • I like that Stiles is still determined to find the way out of the train station but when Peter revealed that the train station isn't a really place so escape isn't possible for them that kind of makes things a hell of a lot more difficult.
  • I find it odd and a bit unnerving that when Stiles would open the door out of the train station it would just lead back into the same room over and over again.
  • I liked that Peter noticed that there was a boy that was intently watching Peter and Stiles and I liked that he was surprised that Stiles tried the doors since no one ever really tries to escape. I like that the boy suggest that the tunnel the ghost riders come in might be the only way out.
  • I liked that Peter had Stiles push him into the tunnel and I liked that Peter ended up pulling Stiles along into it.
  • I liked that Lydia noticed Stiles jeep before it would be towed away and I liked that she could tell that it was something important and I liked that Scott noticed her noticing it.
  • I liked that when Lydia left class that Scott followed her out to check if she was okay, I also liked how the teacher asked the other students in the class if they knew class wasn't optional.
  • I liked that Scott claimed the jeep as his own after Lydia revealed that it wasn't hers to the tow guy because he knew it was important to her and I like that when Lydia made Scott give her money to keep the jeep that Scott gave it to her even though he was highly doubting it was worth it.
  • I liked that when guy suggested the highly dangerous plan to escape by grapping a ride from the ghost riders as the jump through their lightning portal that Stiles didn't want him to go through with testing his theory because he would most likely die and I like that Stiles even tried to get Peter(who was all for the guy testing his theory)to help him convince the guy not to got through with it, it really shows that Stiles is used to partnering with Scott who tried to save everyone in these types of situation because there was no way someone like Peter would have helped him with this plan.
  • I was sad that the guy died instead of escaped but I wasn't really surprised by it either.
  • I liked Peter's speech about how the two of them are already dead and forgotten and that there is no escape and everything they do or have is completely useless because that really shows how bleak their situation is.
  • I like that Stiles says that someone is going to remember him whether it be Scott, Lydia or Malia and that no one is ever going to remember Peter and come for him because who would care about him.
  • I like that Stiles figured out that they could maybe use the radio to send a signal to the really world to tell the others he's alive and I like that it actually works.
  • I like that when they went back into the jeep that Scott picked up on his, Lydia and Malia's scents in the car despite them having no memory of being in the car.
  • I like that Scott didn't side with either Lydia, who believes that Stiles is real and that they have to get him back, or Malia, who is sure that Stiles isn't real, because Scott can see merits in both their arguments.
  • I like that when Lydia was breaking down at the hopelessness of the situation that we also saw Stiles sitting against a wall also thinking about hopelessness of his situation as well, it was just a really nice shot.
  • I liked that Scott stood up to the tow truck guy when he tried again to take the jeep away and I liked that Malia broke the guys truck so that he couldn't take even though neither of them are convinced of the importance of the jeep.
  • I liked that when Peter notice that the towns that the ghost riders go through leads to the towns getting wiped off the math that he decides to try his lucky of going through the portal since he'll heal unlike a normal human.
  • I like that Stiles basically uses the fact that Malia is Peter's daughter as a way to manipulate Peter into telling his friends who he is and to help try and save everyone.
  • I liked that when Malia and Scott saw Peter that they remembered who he was and they were shocked that they had forgotten him.
  • I liked that Scott and Malia noticed the keys to Stiles jeep in Peter's hand and I liked that Scott brought them back to the jeep and Lydia and how delighted they both were when it worked.
  • I liked that Stiles once again started working on using the radio to communicate and that this time he was able to talk to Scott and Lydia.
  • I liked that after Lydia and Stiles asked if it was Stiles and that Stiles asked if it was them and I liked that he said Scott's name first because Scott almost always comes first to Stiles.
  • I liked that Stiles asked Lydia if she remembered him and although the answer is not really, I liked that she did remember the last thing he told her.
  • I liked that the first real question that Scott asked Stiles was if he was okay because that's what's most important to him.
  • I liked that Scott wanted to know where Stiles was because he wants to go and save him and the others but Stiles points out that he won't be able to find him and instead tells him to look for Cannon. I liked that Scott called Stiles name in distress once the line went dead.

TV Review: How to Get Away With Murder: What Happened to Annalise?(2.10)

                 How to Get Away With Murder: What Happened to Annalise?(2.10)Review
  • I liked that Laurel let Michaela think that she and not Wes was the one that shot Annalise because she didn't want the others to think bad of him.
  • I liked that Bonnie made sure that everything was set up for Annalise at home when she came back from the hospital and let her know that she would stay there to help take care of her if Annalise wanted her to but of course Annalise didn't.
  • I like that Wes is feeling guilty about shooting and almost killing Annalise because she's been lying to him but I also liked that Laurel made sure that he got out of bed and stop feeling sorry for himself.
  • I liked that all of the study group were happy to see that Wes had finally gotten out of his apartment.
  • I found it really odd that Annalise hallucinated that a woman dropped off a baby at her house and that after Bonnie discovered it she knew that they couldn't allow Annalise to testify in court the next day because she wouldn't be a reliable witness.
  • I was surprised that Asher went the police because he believed that his dad was murdered rather than committed suicide. I like that Bonnie is helping him with checking in on how the police investigation is going but I also like that Connor doesn't think Asher talking to the police right now is the best idea.
  • I like that everyone other than Annalise had to work together to write a written statement that sounds like Annalise wrote it because Annalise isn't in the right mental state to testify.
  • I liked that when Annalise was recovering in the hospital Laurel visited her and she asked Laurel why she took the blame and she told her that she didn't want the others to blame Wes for this because they already blame him for Sam.
  • I find it concerning that Wes kept the gun rather than getting rid of it like he said he was going to do.
  • I like that Connor is letting Asher stay with him and Oliver because of everything Asher has recently went through and I like that Connor says that Asher doesn't seem upset because he's just really good at hiding it.
  • I like that Bonnie had Nate come over because Annalise wanted to see him but was mad when Nate came over because Bonnie had to ask him to come.
  • I liked that Michaela was mad that the rest of the study group hang out without inviting her.
  • I like that Caleb isn't buying the cover up that frames Catherine and I like how Michaela is able to lie to him and tell him to just accept that his sister is the bad guy although he doesn't change his opinion.
  • I like that it seems that Annalise stopped taking pain killers just so she could testify in court in case they didn't accept the written testimony which they didn't.
  • I'm not really surprised that Annalise wasn't able to keep it together when she was on the stand but I was surprised that this seemed to be part of her plan to convince Caleb to convince Catherine to take the fall for shooting Annalise but blame her actions partially on Philip and make Philip go do for the murder of her parents.
  • I liked that Bonnie is worried about Annalise because she knows that Annalise wanted to die that not she told someone to shoot her.
  • I was sad when Wes told Annalise that he now understands why his mother killed herself that she just needed everything to stop which he is the way that he feels now.
  • I liked that Wes confronted Annalise about the fact that she knew his mother but she refused to tell him anything and made him leave because she doesn't trust that he won't hurt and she believes he ruined her.

TV Review: Timeless: Last Ride of Bonnie and Clyde(1.09)

                           Timeless: Last Ride of Bonnie and Clyde(1.09)Review
  • I like that this episode is covering part of the story of Bonnie and Clyde.
  • I like that Lucy is trying to get to know the guy she's engaged to but I don't think a relationship between the two of them could be anything other than awkward with him knowing her and her having no idea who he is.
  • I want Lucy, Rufus and Wyatt to tell Agent Christopher about what they know about Ritten House since she's already investigating it and she would be someone they could trust to be on their side.
  • I liked that Wyatt tells Lucy that she should just end her relationship to that guy she's engaged to but she doesn't know because they're clearly not meant to be together since she had never met him before their time traveling changed things in her life therefore Wyatt believes their both clearly meant to be with other people and Lucy breaking it off with him would be a good thing for both of them.
  • I like that Rufus and Jiya's relationship seems to be going well and I like that both Wyatt and Lucy are supportive of that relationship.
  • I like that Wyatt says that they should tell Agent Christopher about Ritten house and that Lucy agrees to it but sadly Rufus seems to disagree since he's unsure if they can really trust her.
  • I like that Lucy seems to be a bit star struck when Bonnie and Clyde rob a bank that her and Wyatt are in.
  • I like that the key that Flynn is after that is important to Ritten House is one that Bonnie is wearing around her neck which ties Bonnie and Clyde into the episode plot more.
  • I like that Rufus helps a little girl reach a water fountain and tells her to run once he sees Flynn arrive with men with guns.
  • I found it interesting that Flynn is working with the cops to get at the key Bonnie has which leads to Lucy and Wyatt deciding that they have to help Bonnie and Clyde get away from the cops and pretend that they are thieves and lovers in the same way Bonnie and Clyde are.
  • I like that Lucy remembers that the next day Bonnie and Clyde are going to die so they need to get the key from Bonnie before nine AM the next day because that's when they die.
  • I feel bad for Rufus when he is taken in by the cops for questioning because he was seen with Lucy and Wyatt before they helped Bonnie and Clyde.
  • I'm glad that Rufus was able to convince the head police officer that he had nothing to do with any robbers despite what Flynn had been telling him.
  • I liked how Bonnie told them that Clyde gave her the key when he proposed to her and I liked that reason he didn't give her a ring was because she's already married to someone else so they can't get married despite her not having any interest in anyone other than Clyde.
  • I liked that when Lucy slipped up and said it's better than what she read about and I liked that Bonnie and Clyde assumed that she meant in the papers.
  • I liked that after Bonnie saw the engagement ring Lucy was wearing that she asked how Wyatt purposed to her and I liked that Wyatt told this sweet story of their proposal that is no doubt the story of how he proposed to Jessica in order to keep their cover. I also liked that Wyatt kissed Lucy to avoid any doubts in their story and I liked that you could tell that Lucy and Wyatt both felt something in that kiss.
  • I liked that when Bonnie was talking about how she feels like something is coming that she asks Lucy and Wyatt if they ever felt like they knew what was going to happen next and I liked that Wyatt said that seems to be happening a lot lately.
  • I found it interesting that Clyde stole the key from Henry Ford and that he wrote a letter to the man that he has framed on the wall.
  • I found it interesting that the key says in Latin something about being at the beginning and end of all time.
  • I like that Wyatt is worried about how Clyde keeps twirling that gun because it's quite unnerving the way he plays with a load weapon especially while being drunk.
  • I'm glad that Rufus got let go after the guy that betrays Bonnie and Clyde confirms that he isn't involved with Bonnie and Clyde.
  • I like that Mason is trying to get Ritten House to back off of both Rufus and Agent Christopher but sadly it doesn't seem to be helping much at all.
  • I liked that when Lucy seems to be amazed by the idea that could just be one person in the world for everyone and I like that Wyatt asks her if she believes in fate in everything except when it has to do with love.
  • I liked that Wyatt confirms that the proposal story was about how he proposed to Jessica.
  • I liked that Lucy tells Wyatt that maybe if you loose the person you love or if you just don't know who that is you should allow yourself to be open to new possibilities.
  • I like that when Rufus showed up and told Lucy and Wyatt how the cops were coming to the cabin tonight to take down Bonnie and Clyde that Rufus was able to save them from getting killed by Bonnie and Clyde by revealing that there old friend is the one that really betrayed them by playing a piece from his recording device.
  • I was somewhat sad for Bonnie that Clyde a minute or so before of course she still made sure that they went down together in the end.
  • I'm disappointed that Flynn ended up getting the key while we learned very little about the key.
  • I liked that Lucy and Wyatt awkwardly talked about that kiss that they shared and how it was just for cover.
  • I liked that Agent Christopher approached Rufus for information about Mason and I liked that Rufus tried to convince her to stop digging because he's worried about what Ritten house could do to her and her loved ones. I liked that in the end Agent Christopher convinces him that it's her job to worry about her loved ones and he agrees to tell her everything he knows about Ritten house.
  • I'm curious about what the letter that Flynn found in the clock that the key opens says and who wrote it.

TV Review: Sweet/Vicious: Tragic Kingdom(1.04)

                                     Sweet/Vicious: Tragic Kingdom(1.04)Review
  • I find it disturbing that there's a sorority is forcing it's pledges to get undress and have them right the words bitch, slut and whore on their stomachs in ink that only appear in the dark and they video tape it and put it on the internet.
  • I like that Jules actually seems to be excited about pledge week before she sees the other sorority's awful hazing ritual and sends the video to Ophelia as another potential target.
  • I like that after going over the evidence that both Jules and Ophelia decide that they need to take down the sorority by finding undeniable proof that they're up to no good.
  • I find it interesting that Ophelia is a legacy of the Kappa sorority and that they try to recruit her every year so that means they have their way to get into the sorority and prove that their up to no good. I also like that Jules gave Ophelia makeover for her going undercover there.
  • I feel bad for Harris that he's only getting assignments based on race but I'm not sure if it's because he's black or because he wrote his essay to get into the program about race.
  • I think that it must be an awkward and somewhat saddening situation with Ophelia when her mom comes to visit and tell her how proud she is of her when just a few episodes ago she made it clear that she didn't want anything to do with Ophelia when she wasn't pretending to be someone she's not.
  • I was sad that Jules good mood didn't last since she started having nightmares again but I'm not surprised that they started off again.
  • I like that Ophelia's mom being there only makes her more determined to take down Kappa.
  • I like that Ophelia can tell by one conversation that Jules had with her that she had a nightmare again.
  • I liked that show contrast Jules sorority with Kappa with showing the former to be about empowering women while the later is about tearing them down.
  • I'm worried that Harris trying to find proof that there's a vigilante on compass could cause problems for Jules and Ophelia later on.
  • I like that Ophelia is actually able to bond with her mom but I'm sad that she was starting to get second about taking Kappa down because of that.
  • I disliked that Ophelia told Jules that she only see things through her damaged eyes because that was mean and uncalled for.
  • I'm glad that after being forced into a pledge where the pledges are locked into a room and forced to drinking a bunch of kegs and smoke one cigar each within a three hour time span which makes Ophelia see that no one here can truly enjoy this.
  • I hated how the head Kappa girl didn't even seem to care when one girl nearly died of alcohol poisoning.
  • I find it disturbing that the head Kappa girl implied that Ophelia's mom came up with the idea for the lock in.
  • I think it's freaky how many cameras the Kappa keep going all over their own house and that they run a hazing website.
  • I felt bad for Jules when Kennedy tried to convince her to go into the frat house that she was raped in to pull a prank and felt even worse that Jules trying to explain why she can't go in there sound like she was insulting Kennedy which made her angry which only made Jules feel worse about everything since she still fell like she can't take to Kennedy at all about what she's going through.
  • I like that Jules and Ophelia are going after Kappa the old fashion way to punish them for their hazing and then convinced them to shut down Kappa.
  • I liked that when Jules told Tyler that she didn't feel the same about things she use to enjoy that he suggested that she may have moved on from that part of her life.
  • I feel made for Tyler that the last time he saw his brother they fought ands now I know that he'll never be able to make up with him.
  • I felt so bad for Ophelia when as soon as she told her mom that she doesn't want to be a Kappa that her mom now no longer wants anything to do with her.
  • I like that Kennedy tells Jules that although she has no idea what is going on with her she's here if Jules wants to talk and I like that Jules tells her thanks and that she loves her.
  • I liked that Jules admitted to Ophelia that she hasn't been coping well and that Ophelia admitted that she was lying to herself about her mom.

TV Review: Teen Wolf: Relics(6.04)

                                                     Teen Wolf: Relics(6.04)Review
  • I liked that Melissa followed Chris out into the woods because she want to help him try and stop the werewolf that is biting into people's skulls although since she's untrained she isn't a ton of help.
  • I find it interesting that the ghost riders are able to transport into place by using lightening.
  • I like that Cory is feeling guilty that everyone who saw the ghost rider is in danger now because he made them visible and I like that Scott promises him that they will find a way to protect everyone.
  • I like that Malia is very angry at Chris for shooting her and that she holds a grudge against him for it.
  • I liked that when Melissa was trying to remove the bullet from Malia's leg that she was doing her best not to cause her any extra pain that Malia decided that she was taking too long so she removed the bullet from her own legs with her claws and gave Chris his bullet back.
  • I like that Hayden is still following Gwen around since she knows that she still needs protection from the ghost riders.
  • I liked that Mason and Liam figured out that they can tell when the ghost riders are coming by using a K-scale which measures the amount of lightening that can be found in a storm.
  • I liked that Lydia figured out that there are relics that are left behind from the people who are taken by the ghost riders because even they can't take everything that a person once owned therefore if the find a relic of someone's they might be able to bring that person back.
  • I liked that Liam and Mason argued about whether they should fight the ghost riders or find away to keep all the party guests safe.  I liked that Scott came in as the were arguing took Mason side of finding somewhere to keep people safe(which in this case is underground) and I liked that Scott point out to Liam that they didn't beat the ghost riders they just retreated for some unknown reason.
  • I liked that when Lydia was asking the Sheriff to look around his house to find something Stiles left behind that the Sheriff told her last after he stubbed his toe on a baseball bat he yelled out Stiles name without even thinking, I'm just glad that on a subconscious level Sheriff remembers his son.
  • I liked that when a guy on the lacrosse team heard that they had a bunker that he asked Liam what kind of people they are and Liam answered "we're the people who know about things that most people don't know about." which I found very funny.
  • I liked that when they realize that three of the lacrosse players didn't come down to the bunker that Scott says that he'll go to get them and I liked that Liam, Mason and Cory wanted to come with him to help him fight them off and I liked that Scott didn't want them to come because they're all marked by the ghost riders. I liked that Scott only let them come when Cory mentioned that he's the only one who can see them and that Scott still told them if he saw them he should run.
  • I think that Mrs. Stilinski is clearly just someone the ghost riders put into fill the void Stiles left because there's no way anyone would get that upset about someone pealing up that little bit of wallpaper that Lydia pealed up.
  • I liked that Chris told Malia that he shot her because he was afraid that she wasn't enough in control of herself to stop herself from killing an innocent and I liked that he related that to a time when he was younger and he did nothing to stop Kate from killing an innocent and then finding a way to justify it to herself later on and he thinks that if he had stepped in back then maybe she wouldn't be the monster she is today.
  • I liked that Malia agreed to help Chris watch out for the kids in the bunker.
  • I liked that Scott asked Mason to find a way to stop the ghost riders since he is the one who has figured everything out about them so far.
  • I find it sad that Gwen seems to want to be taken by the ghost riders probably because she wants to see her sister again or wants to stop looking over her solider wondering when they're going to come for her.
  • I liked that Scott, Liam and Cory are playing in the lacrosse game because they figure the only way they can protect the lacrosse players is by fighting them out on the field.
  • I like that Lydia absolutely believes that Stiles is real even if she can't find proof that he is real.
  • I like how Scott, Liam and Cory are screwing up the game by trying to protect the people who have been marked by the ghost riders.
  • I liked that Mason figured out that the ghost riders went away because Parrish showed up and that he tells Hayden to get him here.
  • I liked that when a girl was freaking out about dying and she wanted to shoot her with a stun gun that Chris told her to find another way to calm her down and that she was able to calm her down by promising her that no one will be coming through that door.
  • I found it funny that when an extremely powerful thunderstorm arrived that Coach then said that it was barely raining.
  • I was sad that the ghost riders took at least one of the people they were trying to protect.
  • I like that Malia work together to track down one of the people who have been marked that is trying to escape the bunker which if he succeeds would put not only himself but everyone else in the bunker in danger.
  • I'm sad that their attempts to keep the lacrosse players on the field safe is not going well at all with almost everyone they vowed to protect getting taken one by one.
  • I liked that Liam just goes ahead and tackles a ghost rider so that he can't shoot anyone and I like that Scott worries about him when he does.
  • I like that Melissa lets Lydia and Natalie look at Mrs. Stilinski's medical records but tells them to be quick about since it's illegal.
  • I like that when Malia smells the guy through the wall that he's freaked out that she can do that.
  • I liked that Malia told Chris that he should just clip the guy since he did to her earlier and that Chris tells her that she heals, he wouldn't so he won't shoot him.
  • I find it interesting that Parrish was shot by the ghost rider but not taken by him like everyone else.
  • I'm sad that the protecting everyone plan is going so poorly with all the lacrosse players on the field being taken as well as others that were at the game and that one guy was taken when he opened the bunker and then everyone else in the bunker was also taken.
  • I find it interesting that Mrs. Stilinski's medical record still says that she had frontotemporal dementia ten years ago which makes Melissa surprised that she's still alive.
  • I find it sad how both Liam and Scott blames themselves for not being able to save everyone from the ghost riders.
  • I find it ironic that Liam proved himself as worthy of being team captain to Coach by not caring about lacrosse but instead trying to safe people's lives.
  • I find it sad that Malia and Scott are giving up on the idea that Stiles was real but I do think it's understandable that they want to focus more on finding a way to stop the ghost riders they know are real rather than trying to bring back a person that they just think might be real.
  • I find it interesting and risky that Liam wants to catch a ghost rider but I think it's sweet that Mason, Hayden and Cory refuse to let him do that on his own.
Please tell me your thoughts on this episode.

TV Review: School 2013

                                                                School 2013
School 2013 is a series that is about the teachers and students for one second year high school class that deals with all the issues that arise in that class during that year from a variety of point of views. This series is one that doesn't have clear cut leads or just one plot line to summarize so it makes describing what the series about a bit hard so I've decided to just split three of the different types of plots that got focused on into this review.

The first plotline that got focused on through out the series is the conflict between the two homeroom teachers Jung In-jae and Kang Se-chan who look at their jobs very differently. Jung looks at her job as a way of preparing all the kids for the world and she believes it is her personal responsibility to help the kids with any problems that they may be having whether it regards school work or not, she goes above and beyond what her job requires her to do so this leads her to sometimes focusing too much on getting everyone's attention rather than just teaching those who actually wants to learn. Kang  who usually works as a tutor at night schools where only students who are very serious about attending university go to but is forced into a teaching position because of profiting off some sort private tutoring, the only thing that Kang cares about when it has to do with students are their grades. By being forced to work together Jung and Kang learn to understand the other's point of view and in the end Kang even ends up admiring Jung for the way she never gives up on the students even though he doesn't feel like he could ever allow himself to connect him the way that she does and Jung learns that sometimes no matter how hard you try you can't get through to every student.

The next plotlines of importance I would say would be the ones that involve Go Nam-soon who is a seemingly apathetic slacker who the wannabe gangster in the class Oh Jung-ho and his two friends harass on a seemingly daily bases and while Nam-soon never directly challenges him it's clear that he doesn't fear like the rest of the class but rather that he finds the idea fighting them to be too much of a bother to deal with. Things in the order of who the strongest in the class really starts to get confusing when Park Heung-soo transfers into the class since he seems to have a past of getting kicked out of school and fighting which makes the students other than Nam-soon think of him as dangerous and troublemaker despite the fact that all Heung-soo wants to do is go to school and  graduate without causing any trouble. Nam-soon knows Heung-soo since the two of them are former friends and their friendship end with Nam-soon hurting Heung-soo and neither of them have completely gotten over how their friendship ended which causes all sorts of tension in their interactions with Nam-soon feeling so very guilty and wanting to do anything he can try and make up for the past even though he doesn't believe it's possible and Heung-soo being understandable still very anger at Nam-soon. Finding out about what destroy Nam-soon and Heung-soo's friendship and seeing them having to figure out if the can repair their friendship is both the most painful and rewarding part of the series.

The third kind of plot line that this series has are the ones that deals with the academic pressures that students either have placed on them or place on themselves. The top student in the class Song Ha-gyeong wants nothing more than to get into S University and she will do everything she can to get in their which leads her to taking classes illegally at tutoring schools and using some type drugs to stay awake for days when finals week come up so that she can stay up to study. Throughout the series Ha-gyeong ends up learning to not value school work over anything else once she ends up hurting her best friend over it and after that she accepts that there are other things that she cares about more than school. Another student in the class that deals with a lot of academic pressure is Kim Min-ki who's mother has basically planned out his whole life and pretty much micromanages ever aspect of it especially when it comes to studying. The pressure that Min-ki's mother puts on him is something that he ends up feeling so overwhelmed by that he almost kills himself and it's only after that he can get his mother to back off of him a little bit and allow him to have a few more choices about his future.

Overall I really loved this series I thought that it had a great cast of characters and I really enjoyed how this series was able to focus so much on friendships through it's run and I just loved seeing all those relationships develop along with the characters. This series was really great and recommend it to anyone who likes teen dramas because this is a really good one that is more grounded in reality than most. Please tell me your thoughts on this series.

Movie Review: Enemies In Law

                                                      Enemies In Law Review
Enemies In Law is a Korean movie about a young woman named Park Young-hee(Jin Se-yeon) who is a cop who comes from a family of cops who falls in love with Han Chul-soo(Hong Jong-hyun) who is the son of two infamous criminals with his father being a thief and his mother being a forger. While both families are against Young-hee and Chul-soo being together Young-hee's father agrees to allow them to marry if Chul-soo becomes a cop so Chul-soo makes it his life mission to become a cop.

After years of Chul-soo working his hardest it looks like he is finally going to succeed in becoming a cop and this leads to both Young-hee's and Chul-soo's families working together to make sure he fails because neither family can stand to be in-laws with the other because of the others standing with the law. Chul-soo does his best to succeed against the laws while Young-hee encourages him while also calling out her family for sabotaging her relationship.

This movie is one that I really enjoy, it had a fun story and the two leads were characters that I found easy to root for and while I did dislike their families since I was suppose to I don't consider it a bad thing. Overall I think this was a fun romantic comedy and recommend checking it out. Please tell me your thoughts on this movie.

TV Review: Scream: Heavenly Creatures(2.11)

                                          Scream: Heavenly Creatures(2.11)Review
  • I find it creepy and odd that the killer broke into Emma's house took her dream journal and left a wooden heart for some unknown reason.
  • I find it sad but understandable that Noah doesn't want anything to do with figuring out who the killer is or horror movies because he knows that the killer wins ever sick game he plays and that feels like he missed out on so much by trying to figure out who the killer is and all that got was Zoe dead and him almost dying.
  • I find it a bit cowardly that Brooke's dad is asking her to come home in a hidden way through his press conference rather than trying to actually talk to her.
  • I find it weird that Eli was secretly at Will's funeral but I honestly don't think he's the killer because it just seems too obvious.
  • I liked that Audrey tried to tell Noah about how they think that Eli might be the killer and that when he said that he didn't want to talk about it she let it drop.
  • I like that Audrey gives Noah the photos she found of him and Zoe and told him that she understands what he's going through and that she's here for him. I liked that Noah said that he would do one last podcast in Zoe's in honor.
  • I liked that when Kieran wanted to bash Eli's head in since they now think he's the killer that Emma and Audrey stop him because they both believe that would only make things worse.
  • I liked that Eli stole something from the mayor that would allow him and his mom to stay in town and then wrote a note saying that he so screw in his office.
  • I liked how the psychology teacher told the Sheriff that she thinks that Stavo's obsession with death started as a way to try and understand what his dad as to deal with on the job.
  • I liked that when Brooke went back home that she made Stavo promise that he had to go back home and fix things with his dad as well.
  • I liked that Stavo visited Noah and told him that his podcast is something that helps the people of Lakewood cope with the murders including him. I find the picture that Stavo drew for Noah to be pretty creepy.
  • I was a bit surprised to learn that the mayor has robbed pretty much everyone in town.
  • I really don't trust Kieran so I don't trust that he isn't the killer just trying to make Emma and Audrey believe that Eli is the killer.
  • I liked that Noah decided not to quit doing his podcast because Zoe loved it and since she loved it he doesn't think ending it will be the right way to honor her memory.
  • I'm worried about the video that it seems the killer used Noah to upload that make it look like Emma and Audrey are the ones behind the killing.
  • The Mayor's death was one that I found to be very violent which freaked me out.
  • I'm worried about Emma and Audrey since they were found with their hands covered in blood and Emma holding the murder weapon the police have arrested them because they now believe their the one behind the murders.

5 Fandoms I want to Start Writng Reviews for and 5 Fandoms I want to Restart Writing Reviews for

Start Writing Reviews For
1. Shadowhunters: I really want to start writing episodes reviews for Shadowhunters because it is my second favorite show on the air right now and since Teen Wolf my favorite currently airing show is ending this year I would really love to be writing reviews for the series that is filling the void that Teen Wolf ending will leave in my heart. I'm probably going to start reviewing this show starting from the pilot once I start to get caught up with reviewing all the other shows that I'm watching and reviewing right now so it may take awhile but within the next couple of months I'll probably start writing my Shadowhunters reviews.
2. Percy Jackson and the Olympians: This series is one of my favorites but since I read the books before I started blogging I don't have reviews for these books on my blog although I have reviewed all the Heroes of Olympus books that I have read so far on here. I don't think I'm going to have the chance to review this series anytime soon since I have a lot of other books on my to read list so I'll probably not get a chance to reread and review this series anytime soon, so just know that I loved it.
3. Fruits Basket:  Fruits Basket is my absolute favorite series of all time and I have a couple million things to say about it but I haven't reviewed the series yet largely because I have so much to say about it that I don't even know where I would start with a review of the series. I think that if I were to ever write reviews for Fruits Basket that I would do it by chapter rather than by volume like I usually do for manga because I feel like I wouldn't be able to talk about everything I would like to talk about in as much depth as I want to talk about them if I don't do it chapter by chapter. No matter what way I do it any reviews I write for Fruits Basket will be very long and will take a very long time to write and will probably be a little more detailed than anyone else appreciate going into about Fruits Basket.
4. A Series of Unfortunate Events(book series): The Netflix series has reminded me of how much I loved the series so now I would like to reread the books and review them but since I don't actually own the books at this time I don't think I'll be able to review this series anytime soon no matter how much I love it.
5. Riverdale: I'm really enjoying this show so far and I wouldn't mind having a record of my thoughts on each episode but unlike the rest of the list I don't feel like I really need to review this series probably because I'm way less passionate about this show than the other fandoms on the list above but I may end up writing reviews for it someday especially if people are interested in me writing them.

Restart Writing Reviews For
1. Grimm: This is a show that I really loved when it first came out and one that I loved during all the time I watched but for some reason I stopped watching in the middle of season three despite still loving the show. Since the show is ending this year I figure there's no better time to start reviewing it.
2. Nashville: While this show was never really a favorite of mine I've always wanted to start watching it again because I liked the music and I loved Juliette's characters so I feel like I should at least finish writing and reviewing season one.
3. Reign: I really liked this show and I feel like I should at the very least finish season one since I only have two episodes left of that season to go, how far I go after that will depend on how much I enjoy the show after that.
4. Star-Crossed: This show is one that has been cancelled years ago but since I've reviewed most of the series already I feel like I should finish the rest of the series just to make things complete.
5. Hyouka: This is an anime that I watched and reviewed two episodes of and I really liked it so I figure I should pick up the show again since I remember it being pretty good.

TV Review: Sweet/Vicious:Sucker(1.03)

                                            Sweet/Vicious: Sucker(1.03) Review
  • I like that the episode started with Jules training Ophelia with fighting.
  • I liked that how Jules told Ophelia that they weren't going to pregame a takedown because what they're doing isn't meant to be fun and I liked how Ophelia still finds it a bit fun.
  • I liked that when Jules mentions that she is failing statistics that Ophelia tells her that she can tutor her and that Jules reluctantly agrees.
  • I felt bad for Harris when Ophelia made him look after two of Jules friends who were high after Ophelia said that her and Jules had to study.
  • I felt bad for Jules and the girl in the video who was talking about being raped which made Jules remember her own rape and made her understandable overwhelmed.
  • I liked that when Jules accidently punches Tyler in the windpipe that he is impressed rather than mad at her.
  • I liked that when Ophelia revealed that she stole Carter's phone and forty dollars off his body that Jules just thought was really wrong.
  • I liked how Ophelia could reprogram Carter's phone in order to make it look like he's anywhere in the phone and that she pretends to be Carter so that Tyler will stop worrying so much about where he is. I also like that Jules feels bad about this whole thing.
  • I liked how Harris and one of Jules friends bond at bit when she helped him a bit with his law paper since she's also pre-law and her mom is a judge,
  • I felt bad for Kennedy when Nate was getting mad at her for choosing to meet someone who is a role model to her rather than attend a football luncheon as his girlfriend because it would look bad for him if she didn't show up.
  • I kind of liked that the take down didn't go as planned with Kennedy coming looking for Jules and her having to leave and Ophelia realizing that they had the wrong guy and I like that she ended up mugging the guy she knocked down instead since she had to give him a reason as to why she attacked him.
  • I liked that Ophelia realized that the guy that raped the girl also cat fished her and I liked that Ophelia said that she impressed and troubled by his skills.
  • I liked how Jules had to steal the guys phone and download the information so that Ophelia could hack into it.
  • I liked that even though the guy suspected something was up when he was sent to meet up and that even brought a bat with him that Jules and Ophelia still were able to beat him up.
  • I like that Kennedy wants to be more than just someone's girlfriend and that she's worried that Nate doesn't understand that.
  • I felt so bad for Jules when she had to be the room when Nate won Kennedy back pretending to be a good guy, it must have  been so awful for her to have to sit there and listen to all of that knowing what kind of person he really is.
  • I was sad that Harris wants to drop Ophelia as both an employee and a friend but at the same time I can't really blame him since she has shown herself to be unreliable.
  • I liked how Jules and Ophelia talked to each other about the problems that they have been having and I like that they agree to work on things together and figure things out together.
  • I liked that Ophelia suggested that Jules should just take things really slow with Tyler and I like that Tyler agrees to this and him and Jules are starting a relationship together.
  • I liked that Jules and Ophelia found a way to let the girl know that her rapist was punished by them so that she might be able to rest a little bit easier.
  • I liked that Ophelia and Harris were able to fix their friendship by the end of the episode.
Please tell me your thoughts on this episode.

TV Review: Teen Wolf: Sundowning(6.03)

                                           Teen Wolf: Sundowning(6.03)Review
  • I'm suspicious of Mr.Douglass the new teacher who is apparently some kind of creature that was living in some sort of test tube like place and he appears to need helium to survive. I like that Liam, Hayden, Mason and Cory all find him a bit suspicious as well after his strange coughing fit in class.
  • I find it sad how a girl on Hayden's team seems to be, being erased and only her sister remembers her.
  • I liked how Scott and Lydia were looking up the definition of what a stile was on the internet when trying to figure out what Stiles meant and I like that they quickly figured out that this wasn't the Stiles they were looking for.
  • I liked how when Natalie to think positively while retaking her math test that Malia said that she was positive that she didn't want to be there and I was surprised that Malia got stressed out enough during the test that she transformed into a coyote again.
  • I liked that when Malia was growling at everyone that Scott realized that she was only upset that they were in her space and that he told everyone to give her space and then she transformed to human again.
  • I like that Scott is finding it a bit strange that Malia is transforming again because just being stressed shouldn't cause her to transform without meaning to.
  • I like that Scott and Lydia learn that Stiles is a person because the Sheriff tells him that it's a family nickname which his dad used even though his dad isn't the Stiles they're looking for it's a step in the right direction.
  • I found it funny how Chris broke into Melissa's house ask her help him examine a body that is in her morgue because apparently some werewolf with very large jaws is crushing people skulls by biting them.
  • I liked that Hayden tried to tell Gwen the truth about the ghost riders after her sister has been taken but sadly Gwen thinks Hayden is just making fun of her.
  • I liked how when Liam was asking about what he should do about Gwen that Scott tells him to just keep her safe and then Malia tells him he should kidnap her and then Scott tells him to not do that.
  • I like that Liam, Hayden, Mason and Cory are all working together to try to find a way to keep Gwen Safe from the ghost rider.
  • I like that Scott can't believe that they are actually breaking into a nursing home and I like that Malia's response is to say that she's sure they can handle it after having to deal with the orderlies at Eichen House, I just love how Malia completely misses Scott's point.
  • I like how Malia just walks into the nursing home and knocks out the guy at the front desk and locks him in the closet.
  • I'm not surprised that grandpa Stilinski isn't looking like he'll be much help to them but the fact that he already has dementia might mean that the ghost riders didn't bother to erase his memories which may turn out to be helpful.
  • I can't believe that Liam is throwing a party in Scott's house in order to try and keep Gwen safe from the ghost riders.
  • I liked how Malia kept yelling at grandpa Stilinski and I liked how he mentioned that he didn't like her.
  • I liked that when Malia told Scott to use his claws in order to search grandpa Stilinski's memory that he wouldn't do it because it could easily kill him and that he stops Malia from using hers.
  • I was surprised after the sun went down and after Lydia helped him regain his sense by concentrating on math it turned out that grandpa Stilinski is much more aware of what it going on and he happens to be quite mean.
  • I liked that after Sheriff made Scott, Lydia and Malia leave that his dad mentioned his dead wife and loser son because while yeah that's a really cruel thing to say it does at least let the Sheriff know that something isn't quite right and that it proves that his father could have helped Scott and the others find the answers they were looking for.
  • I liked how Cory worried that he might not have been a good enough fighter to be able to help save Gwen and I liked that Mason told him that no one doubts his abilities.
  • I liked that Cory made the ghost rider visible to everyone but I'm worried that it might put everyone who saw him in danger.
  • I find it odd that some werewolf is taking a certain gland from people's brain for someone after he kills them.
  • I like that everyone tries their hardest to keep Gwen safe and I like that it seems it might have actually saved her.
  • I liked that while Parrish shooting the ghost rider didn't seem to hurt it, it did make the ghost rider go away for some reason.
  • I liked that Malia said that she could've have really beat up the nurse but she choice not to and Lydia says that's an improvement.
  • It seems like Scott believes that everyone at the party that saw the ghost rider is in danger and that he now regrets not being there to help Liam keep Gwen safe.
  • I liked how the Sheriff came over to Scott's house and helped him clean up and that he tells Scott a story about a dream(that is really a memory) about how he and his wife said that they were going to name their son after her father but she says they'll just call him Stiles.
  • I'm not that surprised that the teacher is the werewolf stealing brain glands that represent the soul but I don't get why he's doing it.

Movie Review: Moonlight

                                                           Moonlight Review
Moonlight is the film that won the best picture Oscar and it's about the life of a young black boy named Chiron(Alex Hibbert/Ashton Sanders/Trevante Rhodes) who is struggling with coming to terms with who he is and whether he fits into the society that he was raised in. The film follows Chiron from when he is a child than to his teenage years and to is adulthood. Chiron is a bit different from the rest of the boys who live in his area he's quiet, doesn't like fighting or any type of confrontation, a bit anxious, seems to be less self confident and he's gay. All of Chiron's differences makes him stand out which makes his already hard life even harder than it already is which leads him to acting out in ways that puts him on a path to a life that he doesn't really want but doesn't think he has any other real option but to stay on that path.

This movie is one that has a powerful character driven focus to it and the acting, writing and the directing in this film are all excellent. The visuals in  this film are especially beautiful and the also give this feel of intimacy that makes you feel even more attached to the characters emotional state. Overall I think that this was a great film that definitely deserved the best picture Oscar that it received it's a film that has a great story that you haven't really seen before and it is extremely well made. Please tell me your thoughts on this film in the comment section below.

Book Review: The Lunar Chronicles: Cress

                                                                 Cress Review
Cress is the third book of The Lunar Chronicles series and it's introduces us to our new heroine who is named Cress. Cress is a young Lunar woman who has been kept in satellite for years both because she's a shell(someone whom other Lunars can't manipulate) and she's an excellent hacker who Queen Levana's right hand woman has forced to hack into all sorts of earthen databases and she is tasked with locating Cinder. Since Cress doesn't agree with Levana or what she's doing to earth she doesn't tell anyone when she locates Cinder's ship but instead she contacts Cinder and her crew and pretty much asked them to rescue her and they agree since she's the reason no one has found their ship yet.

The rescue mission ends up going very wrong when one of Cress's capturers finds out about it and uses it to set a trap for Cinder. The botched rescue mission leaves the group split up with Cinder, Wolf and Iko still together but with Wolf badly injured, Scarlet captured by the Lunars and Cress and Thorne almost being killed as the crash land in the middle of the desert. The book primarily deals with the group being a part with each other with Cinder thinking that Thorne and Cress are dead and that she has no idea how to save Scarlet or what her next move in general should be other than being determined to stop the wedding between Kai and Levana. Cress and Thorne do their best to survive in the desert which is made even more difficult then it would have been since Thorne is now blind since he banged his head in their crash landing to earth and Cress has never been to earth before so she may not be the best guide but the two of them make it work and look out for each other the best they can. Scarlet who see on Lunar a couple more times but not much of anything is really resolved in her storyline but we do get our first look at the Lunar princess Winter who is the lead of the next book.

The relationship between Cress and Thorne is one that a really liked with Cress being so sweet and innocence and Thorne being the somewhat self center but ultimate lovable and charming criminal that won us over last book, I just enjoy the way they contrast with each other and the different sides they bring out in each other. Cress makes Thorne more caring and selfless although I don't think he realizes it yet and Thorne makes Cress braver with how he encourages her when she's overwhelmed by new situations or discouraged by seemingly hopeless ones.

This book was great it had a great set of characters to follow and the story that was told was very interesting and I felt that so much happened in such a short amount of time which made this an exciting read. Overall I loved this book and I can't wait to read the next one. Please tell me your thoughts on this book.

TV Review: Revenge: Two Graves(4.23)

                                                  Revenge: Two Graves(4.23)Review
  • I liked that the episode started with flashback of young Emily and her dad that was similar to the ones that we use to see on season one which I thought was a nice touch.
  • I do think it makes a poetic type of sense that Victoria is planning to start a new life under a false name much like Emily did but I don't think that her plan is as well made as Emily's was.
  • I found it surprising and a bit disturbing that Victoria passed her mother's corpse off as her own because even though the two of them had an awful relationship that is still something that I feel like crosses some sort of line.
  • I liked that Emily plead guilty to killing Victoria in order to move into a prison that Nolan made plans of how to get one of them out of there in case something like this happened.
  • I liked that David questioned what Emily was doing when she plead guilty and that when she indicated that she wasn't going to tell him what she was up to since she knew their conversation is being recorded and that he didn't care about that but Emily was still unwilling to tell him anything because she doesn't want him to get hurt trying to protect her.
  • The flashback scene with Victoria and her mother made me fell bad for Victoria because as awful as a person as she is her mother is much worse and probably has a whole lot to do with why Victoria is the way she is.
  • I liked that Nolan and Jack met up with Emily after she escaped from prison and basically promised to follow her until the bitter end.
  • I thought that is pretty bold of Victoria to go to her own funeral but I agree with Louise that Victoria is being way too reckless considering her situation.
  • I'm not surprised that Charlotte and Patrick didn't show up to Victoria's funeral because she's really hasn't been the greatest mother.
  • I think that Victoria wanting to tell Louise that she's still alive has more to do with the fact that she wants to be around someone who thinks world of her rather than wanting to make sure that Louise isn't mourning her when she doesn't have to.
  • I like that Margaux doesn't want there to anymore blood shed but I dislike that she lets Victoria talk her into hiring that hit woman again to go after Emily.
  • I liked that both Emily and Jack thought that it was beyond messed up that Victoria used her mother's body to fake her own death.
  • I like that Emily went out in a disguise and found the evidence she needed in order to prove that Victoria switched the bodies.
  • I liked that when Nolan found out that Margaux hired someone to take Emily out that he called her right a way and told her to get somewhere where she would be safe.
  • I liked that Jack almost died because of his relationship with Emily because I feel like Jack dying because of his involvement with Emily is something that makes narrative sense and I think that him dying in end would have fit the theme of the show better than a happy ending but I'm also glad that Jack didn't die because he means so much Emily and Nolan so I don't want them to go through the pain of loosing him.
  • I was surprised that when Emily told Nolan that she was going to kill Victoria that Nolan didn't try to stop her because he also have tried to stop her from killing in the past but that just goes to show how much hurting Jack crosses a line for these two.
  • I liked that when Nolan told Emily that he was going after the hit woman that Emily told him that she was too dangerous and that Nolan told her that learned how to be dangerous from Emily, I found that scene oddly sweet.
  • I loved that Louise told Emily and Nolan where to Victoria because Victoria being willing to fake her own death in order to make Emily spend life in prison for a crime she didn't commit showed Louise Victoria's true colors finally.
  • I liked that Nolan confronted Margaux with pictures of Ben's body in order to show her that she was guilty for his death because she hired his killer and I liked that when she tried to say that he wasn't better than her that Nolan pointed out that she crossed a line that he would never and new someone is dead because of her and someone that she once cared about is in critical condition. I liked that Nolan was able to use Margaux's guilty in order to get her to help him take down the hit woman.
  • I liked that Louise got to confront Victoria about how she has been using her as a pawn this entire time and that she told Victoria that she hurt her, I also liked that she said Victoria has hurt Emily much more.
  • I like that Margaux decided that she would let herself go down for her crime of hiring the hit woman in order to redeem her soul even though Nolan had already erased all the records her involvement.
  • I liked how when Victoria said that Emily has never been able to pull the trigger that Emily told her that she much preferred that the people who destroyed her life live in agony rather than pay with their lives although seems Victoria is exception.
  • I thought it was pretty sad and messed up that Victoria has consider herself dead for longer than Emily has even been alive.
  • I liked that David shot Victoria so that Emily wouldn't have to. I liked that he saved her from having to kill someone and from being sent to jail for the rest of her life by making sure that he would go instead.
  • I like that in flash forward it seems that Emily and Charlotte are close in a way that I always hoped they could be.
  • It was heartbreaking to see Emily have to loose her father all over again especially since this time we know she won't get him back.
  • I liked how Emily and Nolan talked about how all of this started and I liked how Nolan told Emily that working on revenge gave him a purpose and that when he wonder if he'll find one again that she told him that of course he would.
  • I think that Emily and Jack ending up happily married isn't really an ending that suits the series as a whole but I didn't completely hate it either but I think there could have been an ending that suited the tone and theme of the series better.
Please tell me your thoughts on this episode and the series as a whole.
