TV Review:Teen Wolf: The Tell(1.05)

                                                 Teen Wolf: The Tell(1.05) Review
  • I liked the mood that was set in the opening scene with the wolf attack and I liked that it got both Jackson and Lydia sort of involved in the main plot. I also loved the part were Lydia was taking pictures of herself.
  • I continue to find Scott and Alison to be an adorable couple but Scott really didn’t contribute much to the plot this episode.
  • I liked the scenes with Stiles and a drugged up Lydia found them to be funny, awkward and cute in a way and also they ended up contributing to the overall plot.
  • I liked the insights that we’re given about the characters through the parent teacher meetings like that Jackson was adopted and that he’s an over achiever( I especially like when were shown Jackson having a slight breakdown because he couldn’t make the ball hit the right spot) which adds a lot of depth to his character. With Lydia we learn she is very smart and that she’s a natural leader which I kind of guessed already because she seems like a bit of a libby. With Stiles we learn that he is also very smart but lacks focus( I kind of guessed those things already but I liked that he went in extreme detail about the history of circumsitions on an economics test).
  • I pretty much hate Alison’s aunt Kate because she’s such a bitch with taunting Derek about his dead sister and then electrocuting him a bunch of times.
  • Stiles is of course still my favorite character and I love that he knows what the code for murder is and I like that he always tries to figure out what is going on with the werewolf attacks.

TV Review: The Nine Lives of Chloe King:Green Star(1.03)

                              The Nine Lives Of Chloe King: Green Star (1.03) Review

In this episode Chloe meets the leader of the Mai that are in San Francisco who happens to be Jasmine’s mom. It was interesting to meet the leader pf the Mai and also to learn there’s a lot more Mai around then one would think. I also like how we learned more about the uniter’s destiny such as each death will be more painful then the last and each life will be harder then the last. Another big focus of this episode was mother daughter relationships and I liked seeing the difference between Jasmine and her mom’s relationship( her mom excepts a lot form her but at the same time it’s obvious she loves her daughter) and Chloe and her mom’s relationship( there very close to each and before Chloe found out about the Mai thing they never had secrets from each other).

In this episode Brain and Chloe continue to be sweet together although they went through a bit of a rough patch they seemed to have made up by the end of the episode. I also liked Amy and Paul’s relationship in this episode and I think Amy is a good singer. I’m also very happy that the scar guy died because he was especially cruel this episode with his trying to drown Chloe to death repeatedly. Overall I really liked this episode and I look forward to the next episode.

TV Review: The Nine Lives of Chloe King:Redemption(1.02)

                                The Nine Lives of Chloe King: Redemption (1.02) Review

In this episode Chloe deals with her feelings of guilt over Xavier’s death. I really liked the scene were Chloe tells her mom that Xavier is the first boy she kissed and then he died, the scene made me cry and whenever a tv show can make me cry I consider that a good thing and I’m happy that Chloe told her mom that even though she keeping the whole Mai thing from her. I liked that Chloe helped Xavier’s brother stop being involved in drugs because it’s something that Xavier would have wanted and it really was the only way she could come even close to make things right with his death.

I also found that Chloe and Brain are really cute together and you can tell from watching their scenes that they both really like each other, so I support that pairing although I know they can they never kiss. I loved that he brought her flowers towards the end of the episode that was just so sweet. I also liked that Brain seems to have his own storyline involving trying to figure out who killed his mother and also what is father is up to. So even though I don’t find him attractive find him interesting which I can consider to be much more important.

In this episode it seemed like Alek was much more on edge and I’m guessing that’s because Jasmine isn’t doing so well. I also enjoyed that how excited Paul was about Chloe’s powers because it was just so funny. I overall enjoyed this episode.

Please tell me your thoughts about this episode or the series in general in the comment section below.

Recap/Review: The Nine Lives of Chloe King: Pilot(1.01)

                          The Nine Lives of Chloe King Pilot (1.01 ) Review/recap

First off I know this episode aired like two weeks ago but I just couldn’t make myself type out this review/recap until now so sorry it’s late so I’ll start the recap.

In the first scene we see Chloe running through the woods with two people in black hoodies chasing after her. Through out the scene the camera is all shaky but not in a bad way like when someone doesn’t know how to hold a camera but in a way that reflects Chloe’s current emotional state and from this scene I’m guessing it’s frantic. Chloe then goes up these stairs which leads to a sidewalk and then across the street and into a building then she takes a brief moment to look back then continues to run up a staircase that has all these paintings on the wall once she’s past the area with the paintings she trips( I love that she trips it makes her seem normal) she then gets back up and runs to the top of the tower. Once she’s at the top of the tower she turns around in a circle to see if anyone has followed her and after finding no one she goes over to look out the windows(there not exactly windows since there’s no glass or screens in them it’s more like a well made opening) she then sees the two people who were following her meet up and then head in separate directions neither of them heading inside the tower. But Chloe doesn’t get time to relieved about this because when she turns around she gasps when she sees a black man with a scar on his face and he says “Goodbye Chloe.” then pushes her out the window and she free falls from the very tall tower and lands on the ground on her back and we see that there is blood under her head. Then the title comes up.

In the next scene we get some shots of San Francisco and then go to Chloe’s bedroom and there’s text that says two days earlier then we see Chloe in bed and her mom outside of her room knocks on her door and tells she has to get up or she’ll be late and she won’t be driving her to school today. Chloe then reluctantly wakes up and looks at her phone and smiles then rushes off to her bathroom to get ready.

In the kitchen Chloe’s mom continues to tell Chloe to hurry up then Chloe comes downstairs tells her mom to calm down and grabs a piece of toast and tries to head out the door but her mom stops her and Chloe replies “Sorry no time I have a super mean that won’t drive me to school.” Her mom then makes her sit down and Chloe tells her she got a B on her geometry test, the slutty girl got pregnant just like everyone thought she would and no remotely cute boy has looked Chloe’s way and asked her out, her mom is happy with this so she’s free to go. Then her mom tells Chloe to say hi to Amy and Paul for her. Chloe then ask how she knew she was going to meet up with them, her mom says this is one of the reasons she’s the one whose in charge. Chloe says “Text me.” Mom: “I love you too.” Chloe: “Implied.” then Chloe heads out the door.

Then a few more shots of San Francisco but it looks more rainy and cold this time. Then we see Chloe and her friends Amy and Paul sitting on a bench and a lawn chair on a pier where it has recently rained. Then Paul tells Chloe to hurry up blowing out the candle on her birthday muffin because his hand is on fire then Chloe closes her eyes and blows out the candle and Paul says “And now it’s covered in spit.” the girls laugh. Then Amy wishes Chloe a happy pre-birthday and mentions how she can’t believe tomorrow’s Chloe’s 16th birthday. Then Paul asks what she wished for and Amy immediately smacks him telling him you’re not suppose to tell( which is totally true the rules with birthday wishes is they don’t come true if you tell but in this case it doesn’t really matter) but Chloe says it’s already and that she just wished things were different. Amy suggest “You wished you had more then two friends.” Chloe quickly reassures not about you guys but she does wish she’d be kissed once in her life, then she mentions how she wants to take risks and be notice and how she might be tried of being the good girl, at this point she had stood up and is now walk across the back of the bench with ease. Paul is amazed by how Chloe is walking on the back of the bench asks how she’s doing that, Chloe replies “I don’t know it’s easy.” then jumps down off of it. Chloe goes on how she wants to be someone other then herself then Amy tells Chloe the plans for birthday week which is the same as every year which Chloe isn’t exactly happy about since she wants things to be different. During all of that Paul was trying to walk across the back of the bench but had bad balance and ended up falling down and stating “That is so not easy.” Paul then gets up and asks if their something Chloe would like to do instead of the usual and Chloe gives this smile like she knows exactly what she’d rather do.

Then the next scene is at night outside of a nightclub there’s a long line and Chloe, Amy and Paul on the opposite side of a gate and Paul says “This is so much better.” and Amy says with a laugh “There’s no way their letting any of us in there.” then the see someone people come out of a side door one of them is a guy that pucks in a garbage can which Chloe makes a face that basically says “Ew” then she gives this I have any idea smile. Then the three of them sneak into the club through the side door.

Inside the club there’s lot of people and loud music. They walk in and are all very impressed with the club and Paul tries to hit on some ladies but Chloe says “Don’t do that try to be cooler.” Then the walk up to this bar area and Chloe and this cute dark haired guy smile at each other. Then Chloe pretty much mouths to Amy so hot and if it’s okay to talk to him, Amy says it is and to talk a deep breath which does before she turns around again. The guy then mentions Chloe looks a little young, she lies and says she’s over 18 but he says your suppose to be over 21 but he says he won’t tell and that he’s using his brother id and then the go off and do some flirty dancing.

As they walk out of the club, the guy says that Chloe is wild and Chloe says “No one’s ever said that about me before.” Guy: “ Find that hard to believe.” They are holding hands and smiling at each other. The guy invites Chloe to his brother’s place but Chloe says “I’m not that wild yet.” and that she really needs to go, and she surprised that Amy and Paul ditched her. Then the guy asks for her number and then he gives her his number and she takes his picture and his name is revealed to be Xavier. Then Chloe heads off then turns around and kiss Xavier and he offers her a ride since it’s pretty cold out she replies “I kind of like it, it makes me feel alive.” Then she goes off feeling both surprised and happy that she kissed him and heads home. Then it’s revealed that the guy that will soon kill her is lurking around behind her.

The next scene is at school the next day and we see Chloe catch up with Amy. Chloe first tell her she can’t believe she ditched her but she’s totally forgiven because she had the best night of her life because her Xavier danced all night and she kissed him and Amy is very happy for her. Then we see this gorgeous blond guy coming down the hall with a basketball and Amy mentions she thinks he’s hot and Chloe says he’s not her type and continues to tell Amy how she’s surprised she just went up and kissed a guy. The blond guy starts throwing his ball against the wall behind her head then Chloe catches it and tells him to knock it off then she throws the ball and it lands it a trash can a couple of feet away and Chloe and most other people are taken by surprise. Then Chloe and Amy leave but Amy takes one more look at blond guy before Chloe drags her down the hallway. The blond guy looks watches them leave then squints his eye in the way that says I know your hiding something.

The next scene is still at school but later on in the day. Chloe is stopped in the hall by blond guy who has a lovely accent but I’m not sure were it’s from but I love the sound of it. Blond guy ask Chloe to show him some of her moves sometime but Chloe insist it was just a lucky shot and this point blond guy has cornered Chloe against a wall. Then blond guy says “I wasn’t talking about basketball.” Chloe says “Subtle.” he replies “I wasn’t trying to be.” then he puts one hand down by her crotch and then leans in and smells her(he must have really meant when said he wasn’t trying to be subtle.) during this exchange Chloe mentions he hasn’t talk to her in like two years and she seems uncomfortable but I don’t blame her he’s being pretty creepy. He ask why she’s giving him a hard time and she says she wouldn’t have touched his ball if she knew it would have this effect on him then she realizes that sentence pretty much invited a lot of creepy comments so she says don’t say it. Then he tells her their going to be very good friends and leans into to kiss her but a pretty dark haired girl says “Alec” which is blond guys name so he doesn’t kiss Chloe. Chloe feels more awkward and then says “Well it was nice chatting let’s try to never do this again.” and then leaves as the bell rings. Alec and the girl exchange a look the girl leaves and the scene changes.

Then the scene is inside of the store which Chloe works at. Chloe looks through some new clothes and puts a shirt on hold and says she loves a song playing on the other girls ipod but the other girl is surprised she can hear the music. Then this guy comes into the store Chloe helps him pick out a hat and flirts with him a little bit and then tells him her work hours in case he wants to see her again and he said he might come back.
After work Chloe was walking down the street not paying attention to were she’s going then a guy on a bike nearly runs into her but he doesn’t hit her because she jumped up on a hood of a car, the biker asks how she got up their but she doesn’t really know but decides it’s kind of cool. Then she goes around running, jumping, doing flips and climbing and eventually jumps across roof tops and she’s smiling the whole time.
Then we go to the birthday dinner were Chloe is telling Amy about her new found jumping abilities as well as enhanced hearing abilities. Then Amy tells her how she and Paul kissed and they are now couple which surprises Chloe since Amy never mentioned having a thing for Paul but Amy says she didn’t know until last night. Then they talk a little more about then the dark hair girl from earlier comes in Chloe says it’s Alec’s girlfriend but Amy tells her it’s actually his cousin Jasmine. Then Chloe tells her about the thing with Alec earlier and with the guy at the store.

Then we cut to Chloe’s house were her mom is on the phone with Chloe and mentions that Chloe was suppose to be home an hour ago and back at the restraunt Chloe says their just and she’ll be home in seconds. Amy makes Chloe come up with a plan with the guys she’s flirted with in the episode she tells her to call club guy and to try something store guy who’s name is Brain and Chloe seems the most into him. Then Amy jokily says “Now Chloe try not wrestle too many bad guys on your way home.” and Chloe jokily replies “I’ll try.” then she rushes home and it’s revealed that the guy who’s going to kill her was there.
On the way home on the street Chloe’s harassed by a homeless guy and when she defends herself she slashes him and then notices that her nails have grown and became claw like. Both Chloe and the homeless guy are freaked out by this and then she runs home after her nails are normal again and she makes them long then normal again.

Then we go to Chloe’s house were Chloe walks in the door her mom is pouring herself a glass of wine. Her mom was about to go into a lecture about being home on time but Chloe comes in and hugs her which surprises her and she asks if she’s okay, Chloe says she’s fine but her mom’s not quite convinced but then Chloe says sorry for being late her mom says it’s okay since it’s her birthday. Then Chloe blows out the candle on her cake and then they have some cake and it’s mentioned that her dad left over ten years ago. Then they talk about what Chloe did the night before and about the guy at the store. Then Chloe asks about her birth parents and her mom says she doesn’t know anything about them.( but we do learn their from the Ukrain) and then Chloe leaves and says “I love you mom” her mom replies “Implied.” then Chloe goes up to bed.

The next day at the store Amy and Chloe are talking and Chloe still looking at her nails because of the claw thing yesterday. Then Amy calls Xavier and makes Chloe leave a message and Chloe’s not happy about it. It then shows that Xavier is dead from unknown causes(he was my favorite out of the guys so I’m really sad he died and also I don’t find Brian attractive it’s not that I think he’s ugly just not attractive).

The next scene they are closing the store and Brain stops by and then him and Chloe are off to go get coffee. Then Chloe and Brain talk about their parents and their relationship and a dog barks at Chloe a lot then Chloe leaves and Brain ask if they can do it again sometime and she says yes then runs off.

Then Chloe walks into this park and she sees the man who will kill her and then she starts looking around a lot and she sees the people in black hoodies and it’s back to the scene at the beginning. Then that scene continues with the guy with the scar running from the scene of the crime unnoticed and people gathering around Chloe then we see Chloe open her eyes. Then the next time we see the spot were Chloe fell we see just a blood spot. Then we see that Chloe is running through the park again and one of the people in black hoodies holds her down and when Chloe is about to claw the one the other person in the black hoodie whose revealed to be Alec tells her to stop and their here to help her and the other person in the black hoodie is Jasmine.

In the next scene Chloe, Jasmine and Alec are running through an ally like place and jasmine is explain that they were only suppose to be watching her to confirm if Alec was right about Chloe being one of them but when they saw the guy chasing her they step in. Chloe wants to know what she is but there’s no time because Alec believes they’re being followed.

In the next scene they are on a roof top Alec thinks they’re safe for now but he and Jasmine thinks it would be best to keep moving but Chloe refuses to go anywhere with them until they tell her “What the hell they are?” and then Alec corrects her “You mean what the hell are we. We are Mai.” Chloe is still confused because she has never heard of Mai which Jasmine explains is an ancient race that is part human and part god and that the Mai used to be humans protectors but they had a falling out when they got tired of following orders. Alec says they been hunted for 100 of years but Jasmine assures Chloe that they live pretty normal lives. Chloe then ask if they’ll be any more changes, Alec says “ No just a tail.” Jasmine says to ignore him and confirms there will be no tail. Then Alec asks Chloe if she regrets being mean to him but she doesn’t and then he ask about the boy at the coffee shop which Chloe says is none of his business and then Jasmine mentions she almost had a heart attack because she thought they were going to kiss. Then they explain that if Mai kiss human the human would die but nothing will happen to the Mai. When Jasmine sees Chloe worrying Jasmine assures her that everything is fine because she hasn’t kissed that guy but Chloe’s worried about Xavier the guy she already kissed.

The next scene is outside of an apartment building at night were police cars and an ambulance is present Chloe is crying and is very upset knowing that Xavier died because of her Jasmine says it isn’t her fault but this doesn’t help her feel any better. Then they tell her the guy whose after her is part of the order and won’t stop until he kills her and Chloe says he already throw her off the top of a building they confirm she is the uniter and has nine lives to live they say Chloe should go with them but Chloe wants nothing to with them and then heads home still crying.

Back home Chloe takes a shower and we see a bruise that pretty much covers all of her back.
The next scene is were scar guy tells a white man in a nice car tells him Chloe is who they were looking for and the other guy tells him to kill her as many times as he have to.

The next scene is back in Chloe’s bedroom and her friend Amy is upset because her and Paul broke up but Chloe can’t deal with this right now so Amy ask what so important and Chloe tries to show her the bruise on her back but it’s gone. Then Chloe tells Amy “I think I died today.” Amy asks confused and concerned if she’s okay but before Chloe could answer her phone rings. The phone call his from Paul’s phone but Paul is being held captive by scar guy and wants Chloe to come.

The next scene Chloe and Amy have drove to the abandoned warehouse were Paul is being held captive and Chloe says she’s going in Amy doesn’t think it’s a good idea for her to go in alone but Chloe shows her claws and this freaks Amy out into agree with her.

Inside the warehouse Paul is trying to convince his kidnapper to tie him to a chair instead since he doesn’t have good upper body strength. Then Chloe sees him and he sees her and tells her to leave because it’s a trap but she already knows this, but she tries to convince the guy that she’ll just take her friend leave and that she has nothing to do with the Mai. He then throws blades at her and disagrees then tells her he’s going to kill her 8 more times but Chloe doesn’t like this idea since dieing sucks and then they start fighting each other.
Outside Alec and Jasmine appear and freaks Amy out then Amy tells them were Chloe has went and they go in and Amy follows.

Inside the fight continues and when Chloe is pinned down the guy is taken down by Alec and then him and Jasmine join they fight also Alec unties Paul and he and Amy are united. Then at one point Chloe is knocked out a window but lands on her feet. Then Amy knocks scar guy out the window and the rest of them head outside. Then outside Chloe meets up with Jasmine and Alec she asks if they should go after him and Alec says yes but Jasmine says they should consider themselves lucky to be alive. Then the scar guy throws a blade at Chloe but Jasmine blocks it with her back Chloe says she ‘s sorry and Alec tells her she can’t run away.

In the next scene we learn that Brain’s dad is the guy that ordered Chloe to be killed but it doesn’t appear that Brain knows anything about this or Mai in general.

There is a montage of Alec watching over Jasmine, Chloe’s mom pulling out a box of papers about Chloe, Brain calling Chloe and Chloe receiving an email from her dad that says to trust no one.

TV Review: Switched at Birth: Portrait of My Father(1.03)

                                               Switched at Birth: Portrait of My Father(1.03)Review

  • I’m glad that Bay started to ask about her biological father in this episode because it’s something I’ve been curious about since the beginning, even though we don’t learn much about him other then he took off when Daphne was little.
  • I thought it was kind of weird that they lied about why Regina and Daphne was living with them but I liked that they told the truth at the end.
  • I like that Daphne was mad at Liam for not defending her but I’m glad that they made up by the end of the episode. Also I thought it was funny when Liam and the guy that signed on the phone got into a fight.
  • I continue to like the relationship between Bay and Ty.
  • I like that Bay is artistic and how she always painting or drawing something. I also still think that Bay is really pretty.
  • I also liked that the parents didn’t seem to fight as much during this episode.
Please tell me your thoughts on the episode.

TV Review: Switched at Birth: American Gothic(1.02)

                                                     Switched at birth: American Gothic(1.02) Review

  • I felt kind of bad for Daphne in the scene at the beginning were the Kennish’s are all talking really fast and Daphne can’t really follow the conversation.
  • I continue to like the relationships that are developing between Bay and Ty and Daphne and Liam.
  • Although I like the relationship between Daphne and Liam I find Liam’s friends to be douche bags and I’m glad that Daphne tricked one of them into making the sign for ‘I am a douche bag.
  • The stuff between the parents makes me feel uncomfortable but I can understand why they are fighting so much.
  • On a Shallow note I continue to find Bay to be very pretty and I really liked Daphne’s hair when she had it curled.
Please tell me your thoughts on the episode.

TV Review: Teen Wolf: Magic Bullet(1.04)

                                               Teen Wolf: Magic Bullet(1.04) Review

  • I like the introduction of Kate Alison’s aunt who is also a werewolf hunter and she’s pretty badass although she seems to lack morals.
  • I liked that Alison seems to be picking up on the fact that her family has some kind of secret. I also liked that she was into photography, painting and poetry at one point.
  • I continue to enjoy the relationship between Scott and Alison as well as the friendship between Scott and Stiles. I’m also interested in the relationship developing between Scott and Derek.
  • I like that towards the end of the episode when Derek tells Stiles he has to cut of his arm Stiles is the one that’s freaked out.
  • Stiles continues to be my favorite character and him getting an A on a test only makes me like him more.
  • I also liked how overprotective Alison’s dad is because it comes to the point were it’s just hilarious and I like that he seems to follow a moral code when it comes to werewolf hunting.
Please tell me your thoughts on the episode.

Movie Reveiw: The Adjustment Bureau

                                                          The Adjustment Bureau Review

The Adjustment Bureau is about a guy David(Matt Damon) who meets this girl Elise(Emily Blunt) and they have this instant connection and they meet up again a second time just by chance but this up sets the adjustment bureau who are this nicely dressed men with hats who makes sure that people stay on the plan for their life so they try to keep David and Elsie apart.

I really liked this movie it had an interesting concept and good characters. I really liked the character David because although he was a politician he was still a decent person and he would anything to be with the one he loves. I also liked Elise she was a good character but I’m not sure what it is about her that makes me like her so much. I really liked the relationship between David and Elise and it was easy for me to root for them to be together. I also liked the character Harry who is this guy that works with the adjustment bureau and has been following David for along time, I like him because he feels guilt over what has happen with David’s life and in the end he ends up helping David.

I thought that the way that the adjustment bureau could move through certain doors was really cool and I thought that keeping people feeling empty in order for them to be successful is cruel. Overall I enjoyed the movie and would give it a 4.5 stars out of 5. Please tell me your thoughts on the movie.

TV Review: Teen Wolf: Pack Mentality(1.03)

                                             Teen Wolf:Pack Mentality(1.03)Review

  • I continue to enjoy the relationship that’s developing between Scott and Alison. I enjoyed the group because this show does the high school life stuff much better then the werewolf stuff.
  • I liked learning more about Alison and I loved the part were Alison does this flip off her roof and she’s just overall really cool.
  • I don’t really understand the Jackson’s and Lydia’s relationship because they don’t seem to like each other and Lydia seems to dumb herself down and pretend to suck at bowling for him and he’s still a jerk to her.
  • I think Lydia has potential to be a good character since really loved when she judge Alison’s clothes, I just think she’d benefit a lot by breaking up with Jackson.
  • Stiles continues to be my favorite character I especially loved the part were he wonders if gay guys find him attractive and when he’s worried his going to be Robin all the time earns points for being genre savy.
  • I also Continue to enjoy Scott’s and Stiles’s friendship, I like how it’s considered completely normal for Stiles to sneak into Scott’s bedroom randomly.
  • I think it’s a good thing that Scott and Derek are working together or at least talking and I find it interesting that their’s another wolf in town.
Please tell me your thoughts on the episode.

TV Review: Wilfred: Happiness(1.01)

                                                      Wilfred:Happiness(1.01) Review

I just watched the first episode of Wilfred and I kind of love this show already, I find it absolutely hilarious. It stars Elijah Wood (who I previously scene in Lord of the Rings and Everything is Illuminated) as Ryan a guy who sees his neighbor’s dog as a guy in a dog suit. When I first heard what is was about I thought it was so weird I had to watch and I’m so glad I did.
  • I found it funny how the episode start with Ryan working on his third draft of his suicide note because it just seem so odd that someone would make that many drafts of it and it became even more funny when he printed out a fourth draft.
  • I liked how he blended up his pills in a smoothie or something before he drank it. I also liked how he waved at Jenna and then went to go die it was funny because he was so causal about it.
  • It was also pretty funny how he started freaking out when he realized the pills weren’t working.
  • I find funny in an awkward way whenever Wilfred and Ryan would interact when other people were around because a lot of times Ryan comes off kind of crazy.
  • I ended up liking the unlikely friendship between Ryan and Wilfred that developed and I like that Wilfred pushes Ryan’s boundaries to make him do things he normally wouldn’t do.
  • I didn’t like Ryan’s sister but at this point I don’t think we’re suppose to and I don’t really know how I feel about Jenna because she wasn’t in the episode much.
  • On a shallow note Ryan has really pretty eyes which was pretty much my first thought while watching the episode.

Movie Review: X-Men:First Class

                                             X-Men:First Class Review

I saw recently saw X-Men: First Class and I thought the film was wonderful. I liked the flashbacks at the beginning of the film with Charles meeting Raven which established their relationship and I also liked the flashbacks with Erik when his mother is taken away from him and is later killed it help us to understand his emotional state and motives for what he’s going to do later on. I also found the plot of the movie to be interesting and I thought that it seemed well directed.

My Favorite characters are Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr although they’re two very different characters I love both characters pretty much equally. Charles played wonderfully by James McAvoy, is a very young professor who wants to help other mutants and believes that they can fight alongside normal humans. In contrast Erik played excellently by Michael Fassbender, doesn’t for a second belief that normal humans will accept mutants and is still very much driven by revenge. Both characters are very interesting and the thing I find even more interesting is their friendship. I enjoyed their friendship very much despite knowing it was doomed. I liked how through the movie Charles kept trying to save Erik from himself and how despite the fact they both know the other wants very different things they both want to have each other on their side.

I also enjoyed many of the other mutants such as Raven(played by Jennifer Lawrence) who grew up Charles and who has trouble accepting her mutant side but by the end of the film she accepts who she is, I also liked Hank(played by Nick Holt) who is the geek lab guy, and Alex(played by Lucas Till) the teen who has some kind of power he can’t control. On the villains side I loved Emma Frost( played b y January Jones) the other telepathy who sexy and as this vibe that she very dangerous and is not to be messed with. I also think that Kevin Bacon did a good job playing Sebastian Shaw.

Overall I really enjoyed the movie and if I had to give it a rating I’d give it 4.86 stars out of 5. Please comment and tell me what you thought of the movie.

TV Review: Switched at Birth: This is Not a Pipe (1.01)

                                       Review: Switched at Birth: This is Not a Pipe (1.01)

I Overall I enjoyed the first episode of Switched at Birth and I know I’ll continue watching for awhile at least.
  • I thought it seemed relatively realistic how they found out about the two girls being switched at birth and although they all deal with finding this out in different ways I could understand why each character reacted the way they did.
  • Daphne is probably my favorite character because she nice, pretty and funny. I also like how she handles learning that the mother who raised her isn’t her real mother so maturely and I like that even though she’s deaf she’s able to function pretty normally.
  • Even though we didn’t see much of either relationship I would prefer to see Liam with Daphne rather then Bay. I just felt they suit each other better and Bay didn’t seem that into him in their second scene together.
  • I liked that Daphne and Toby seemed to end up bonding fairly fast and I also liked what I saw Toby’s relationship with Bay.
  • I liked Daphne’s friend Emmett he seemed nice and cool and even though he choose not to talk he Can be pretty funny. So I hope to see more of him in future episodes.
  • I like that Bay was the one making the pictures on the wall because it displays her artistic ability and I found it cool how she just randomly puts them up some where.
  • I also liked the relationship that Bay and Ty seemed to developed. I really enjoyed their scenes together and I found Bay the most likable in those scenes.
  • Kind of a weird note but I found Bay to be really pretty especially in that scene towards the end where she had read in her hair.
  • I found the dad John to be the most likable out of the adults probably because he was handling things the most rationally.
please tell me your thoughts on the episode.

TV Review: Teen Wolf: Second Chance at First Line(1.02)

                                      Teen Wolf: Second Chance at First Line(1.02) Review

  • I continued to enjoy the friendship between Scott and Stiles because they seemed to care for each but in a realistic way and also the scenes with just the two of them are usually the most enjoyable.
  • I found it interesting that Scott could turn into a werewolf at anytime even during the day if his pulse rises enough.
  • I thought that this episode had a little too much lacrosse in it and the coach kind of creeps me out a bit. But I found the part were the guy from the other team pass the ball to Scott to be funny.
  • My favorite character so far would be Stiles because he makes me laugh the most, he’s a good friend and he did all the research about werewolves.
  • I find Alison to be very pretty and nice but she really didn’t do much this episode there’s not much I can say about her.
  • I thought that Scott playing in the game was needlessly risky but I understood that he just wanted to live a normal life so I can forgive him for taking the risk.
  • I’m curious why Derek would kill his sister or if someone else killed his sister and I wonder why they wanted to kill her.
Please tell me your thoughts on the epiosde.

Top 10 Female TV Characters

                                            Top 10 Female TV Characters
Honorable mentions: Merlin(Morgana) The O.C. ( Summer, Kaitlin and Julie) Psych (Juliet) Burn Notice (Fiona) Firefly ( Kaylee) Pushing Daises (Olive) Pretty Little Liars (Hannah and Emily) Degrassi:TNG (Clare and Fiona)

     10. Holly J. Sinclair (Degrassi:TNG)

"It's Holly freaking J."
"Like I need a reason to be mean to you."

Blue: "There's no I in team." Holly J: There is in bite me.

"You like low maintenance. Date a honda!"

At first I didn’t like Holly J. at all in fact I hated her because at that time she was just some bitchy popular girl and I didn’t like any of the new characters. But she ended up growing on me as she developed and grew nicer although she still can be a bitch I know that she cares deeply about her friends, is an extremely hard worker, very intelligent( she got into Yale), she knows what she wants and goes after and she’s played by one of the best actress on the show.

9. Cassie Ainsworth (Skins UK)

“Oh, it's cool. I wear a white dress and now I can eat yoghurt, cup a soup and hazelnuts now. If I'm not sick, they let me play with the cats. Yeah, it's like... hazy days, you know?"

“Do you know what hurts most about a broken heart? Not being able to remember how you felt before... try and keep that feeling, because... if it goes... you'll never get it back.”

“Yeah, erm, wow, lovely... No. But, I like that you're funny looking, it's cute. Like wow, man.”

“Oh wow, I was really... I didn't eat for three days so I could be lovely.”
“You like me. You like me. Look up, if you like me. Look up, if you like me. Look up, if you like me.”

I loved Cassie since the first scene she was in, I liked that she was crazy and talked in an odd way and I always felt for her. I loved her being so fragile and how she seemed to find beauty in everything. Honestly I liked Cassie a lot more in series 1 then I did in series 2 because she went from sweet insecure girl to a crazy manipulative girl which is why she isn’t higher on the list.

 8.Faith Lehane(Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel)



"Don't you need anyone dead? Or maimed? I can settle for maimed"

"Gee, if doing violence to vampires upsets you, I think you're in the wrong line of work."

"We're Slayers, girlfriend. The Chosen two. Why should we let him take all the fun out of it?"

"When are you going to get this, B? Life for a Slayer is very simple -- want... take... have"

“ Five by five.”

"What isn't? You know, I come to Sunnydale. I'm the Slayer. I do my job kicking ass better than anyone. What do I hear about everywhere I go? Buffy. So I slay, I behave, I do the good little girl routine. And who's everybody thank? Buffy."

Faith is my favorite slayer for sure, she just so interesting because she puts up this front like she doesn’t care about anything and nothing can hurt but from her first episode you could tell she wasn’t exactly stable which is what made her so interesting. I loved her arc how she went over to the dark side so to speak but she does eventually comes back but it’s a long painful journey for her and a lot of other people. I like that she’s a bad girl and has this sexy vibe and of course she’s a total badass and likes violence a little too much.

7. Charlotte “Chuck” Charles (Pushing Daises)



A hug is like an emotional Heimlich: they put their arms around you and give you a squeeze and all your fear and anxiety goes shooting out of your mouth like a big wet wad and you can breathe again."
"Which birthday do I celebrate? I’ve got two of them now: First day I was alive and first day I was alive again." 

I love Chuck for being extremely cheerful and always looking on the bright side which is a little odd seeing as she was murder but luckily she was brought back to life. I also love that she has read a ton of books, that she still tries to take care of her aunts even though she can’t see them anymore and of course the way she dress her wardrobe is as bright and cheerful as she is.

6. Cordelia Chase (Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel)



"I'm not saying that we should kill a teacher every day just so I can lose weight, I'm just saying when tragedy strikes, we have to look on the bright side"

“Tact is just not saying true stuff. I’ll pass.”

"You're a sheep. All you ever do is what everyone else does, just so you can say you did it first. And here I am, scrambling for your approval, when I'm way cooler than you are, 'cause I'm not a sheep. I do what I want to do, and I wear what I want to wear, and you know what? I date whoever the hell I want to date. No matter how lame he is."

"Oh, God. Is the world ending? I have to research a paper on Bosnia for tomorrow, but if the world's ending, I'm not gonna bother"

"I came over here to tell Buffy to stop this craziness, and found you all unconscious--again. How many times have you been knocked out, anyway? I swear, one of these times, you're going to wake up in a coma"

“Oh, God! What am I gonna do? I'm good for exactly two things: international superstardom, or helping a vampire with a soul to rid the world of evil. That makes for a short but colorful résumé.”

“I think it, I say it. It's my way.”

Cordelia:I finally get invited to a nice place with no mirrors and lots of curtains... hey, you're a vampire!

 Russell: [caught off-guard] What? No, I'm not.
 Cordelia: Are too!
Russell: I don't know what you're talking about.
Cordelia: I'm from Sunnydale. We had our own Hellmouth. I think I know a vampire when... I'm... alone with him... in his... fortress-like home.

I’ve always found Cordelia to be one of my favorite characters even back when she was just used as the bitchy shallow popular girl it probably was because she had the best lines. Although Cordelia could be shallow, bitchy and self-centered at times you could always tell she had a good heart and she would always tell the truth whether you wanted her to or not. She eventually developed into someone who was extremely caring and loyal to her friends.

5. Taylor Townsend (The O.C.)

Taylor: [explaining her new crush on Ryan] - then, when he helped me with my husband, and he kissed me, it was like Dorothy landing in Oz. Everything popped into Technicolor.
Seth: Ah.
Taylor: [offended] You think I don't know what that means?
Seth: I said "ah."
Taylor: Meaning "Ah, that Taylor. She is so pathetic. Someone's the least bit nice to her and she becomes totally obsessed with them. First me, and then her French husband when he lent her a subway ticket, now Ryan."
Seth: Well, isn't it kinda true?
Taylor: So what? Yes. I have a psychological predilection to become romantically attached to men who are nice to me, due to the fact I was raised by a she-wolf of a mother who practiced emotional terrorism. Does that mean, that if by some miracle, love does come into my life, I should deny it? What kind of person would that make me? What kind of life -
“I speak fluent housekeeper.”

“Your dad and Julie Cooper are doing it. Yeah, it’s a shock to me, too. I wouldn’t have believed it myself if I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes. It was all very mid-‘90s, overwrought thriller, sort of a Verhoeven shade.”

I love Taylor for being so odd and kind of crazy but she also seems to be cheerful a lot of the time. I also like that she was fluent in several languages and also how she always seemed to talk to much and go off on random tangents. I thought she was a good friend to Summer and exactly the kind of girl Ryan need since she didn’t to be saved all the time. She’s also the character on the OC that I related to the most which is just kind of odd seeing how out there she could be at times.

4. Blair Waldorf (Gossip Girl)


“Since we're not friends anymore, let me speak frankly. You're not that smart. You lack focus and discipline. Charm is all well and good, but in the real world, knowledge is power. You wouldn't make it past the first round of admissions at Yale no matter how hard you tried.”

Serena: I know you may find this hard to believe, but not everyone wants to go to Yale because not everyone wants to be Blair Waldorf.
Blair: Not everyone can be.

“Haven’t you heard? I’m the crazy bitch around here.” 

 "I'm ready for my punishment. Whatever you and God think is fair. Flogging, fasting, putting that thing with the teeth around my thigh like Silas."

I think it’s impossible to watch Gossip Girl not love Blair Waldorf. Although is a bitch a lot of the time I still always root for and I also like that despite how beautiful and popular she is still insecure which makes her easier to relate to. She also cares deeply about her friends, is extremely smart and is always come up with schemes which I love for.

3. Caroline Forbes (The Vampire Diaries) 



“So you're saying that now I'm basically an insecure, neurotic, control freak, on crack.”

“Why didn't he go for me? How come the guys that I want never want me? I'm inappropriate, always say the wrong thing and Elena always says the right thing. She doesn't even try, and he just picks her. And she's always the one that everyone picks. For everything. And I try so hard and I'm never the one…”

Caroline:You shouldn't leave again.

Tyler: You're kidding, right? This is the second time I've tried to kill you.
Caroline: Well, no friendship is perfect. 


“You help your friend. That's what you do.”

“Everyone just needs to stop kissing me!”

“I don't get to choose the ring I have to wear the rest of my life?”

I love Caroline so much it’s probably unhealthy how much I spend gushing about how wonderful she is. She’s just extremely cheerful most of the time and a great friend to all and seems to not hold any grudges. I also think she grew a lot since the first episode even before she became a vampire. Since becoming I vampire she has become a valuable member of the team, and also stronger, more confident and uses her vampire powers very wisely. I also find her to be cuter then a basket of kittens.  
 2. Drusilla (Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel)



“Do you like daisies? I plant them, but they always die. Everything I put in the ground withers and dies.”

Drusilla:I can't see her. The Slayer. I can't see. It's dark where she is. Kill her. Kill her, Spike. Kill her for me?

 Spike: It's done, baby.
 Drusilla:Kill her for princess?
Spike: I'll chop her into messes.

“Miss Edith speaks out of turn. She's a bad example and will have no cakes today.”

Drusilla: I'm naming all the stars.
 Spike: You can't see the stars, love. That's the ceiling. Also it's day.
Drusilla: I can see them. But I've named them all the same name, and there's terrible confusion. 

"What will your mommy sing when they find your body?"

Dru is my favorite vampire by quite a lot actually I love her for being so crazy but at the same time she seems to know more then most probably due to her being psychic. I love her for being able to love and how she seems to come across as both childish and deadly it’s such an odd combination. 

1.River Tam (Firefly) 


“It isn't mine. The memory, it isn't mine. And I shouldn't have to carry it. It isn't mine.”

“Put a bullet to me. Bullet in the brain pan, squish.”

River: Bible's broken. Contradictions, false logistics - doesn't make sense.

 Book: No, no. You-you-you can't...
 River: So we'll integrate non-progressional evolution theory with God's creation of Eden. Eleven inherent metaphoric parallels already there. Eleven. Important number. Prime number. One goes into the house of eleven eleven times, but always comes out one. Noah's ark is a problem.
Book: Really?
River: We'll have to call it early quantum state phenomenon. Only way to fit 5000 species of mammal on the same boat.

River: I remember everything. I remember too much. And some of it's made up, and some of it can't be quantified, and there's secrets, and...
 Simon: Hey, i-it's okay. River: But, I understand. You gave up everything you had to find me. You found me broken. It's hard for you. You gave up everything you had.
Simon: Mei-mei, everything I have is right here.
“Played with Kaylee. The sun came out, and I walked on my feet and heard with my ears. I hate the bits, the bits that stay down and I work, I f-function like I'm a girl. I hate it because I know it'll go away! The sun grows dark and chaos has come again. It's... fluids. What am I?”

“You're afraid we're going to run out of air. That we'll die gasping. But we won't. That's not going to happen. We'll freeze to death first.”

“The human body can be drained of blood in 8.6 seconds given adequate vacuuming systems.”
“Also I can kill you with my brain
I love River for being both the strongest and weakest character on the show all at the sometime. I love her for being so incredibly smart and I was surprised and impressed by how strong she was and how good of a fighter she was. I loved her being so crazy and how she would say things that made sense but in a way that made it seem like you were crazy if you understood it. I felt so bad for her having to feel everything, having powers she didn’t quite understand nor could she control and that she had memories that weren’t hers or weren’t true. She’s so interesting because she’s so many different things at the same time.
