TV Review: Teen Wolf: The Sword and the Spirit(5.14)

                                  Teen Wolf: The Sword and the Spirit(5.14)Review
  • I liked the description Gerard gave of the beast as a shadow pretending to be solid because that really does fit with how the beast looks.
  • I was surprised and a bit concerned that Gerard knew the dread doctors frequency, I was concerned only because I don't trust Gerard at all.
  • I found it frightening that when Chris found a pile of dead bodies underneath the sewers the dread doctors were staying because there was quite a big pile there already and the beast had only just began to start killing.
  • I liked that when Parrish was horrified by seeing that there were 23 people killed that his dream about everyone being dead was coming true that the Sheriff grounded him in reality for a bit by telling him to do his job as a cop.
  • I'm glad to see that Scott, Stiles and Kira told the Sheriff what they knew about the beast which wasn't a whole lot other than it's terrifying but I'm glad that everyone is in the loop. I also liked hearing the theory that maybe the dread doctors are protecting the beast by covering up for it.
  • I like how Meredith was telling Lydia that the way that she needs to learn control her voice involves using her hands as a way to guide her voice and I like that Meredith refuses to tell Lydia how she learned because she knows Lydia has to learn in her own way.
  • I liked that when Lydia was doubting how useful any of the training Meredith was giving her was that she locked Lydia behind bullet proof glass so that she would be forced to learn how to control her voice.
  • I liked that when Theo was planning to drug Malia with wolfs bane  so that he could take her to the dread doctors place without her knowing where it is that she initially refused because she doesn't trust him and I was glad that Theo admitted that she shouldn't but I disliked that he emotionally manipulated her into doing it by telling her that it will be her fault if Deaton dies because she couldn't find the desert wolf in time.
  • Seeing all the deputies at the high school really shows how much more dangerous the beast is in terms of how many people it kills compared to past villains because of how serious the Sheriff and the rest of the town are taking things.
  • I liked that when Stiles and Scott were trying to figure out what the deputy thinks is really going on the deputy asked them if they believe in the supernatural.
  • I liked that Kira's dad destroy her sword because it's a gateway for the fox and right now the fox is too powerful for her to control so it's best to destroy the gateway. I like that Kira seems to be just as concern with helping her friends fight as she is with conquering the spirit of the fox. I also liked how Kira's dad reminded her that her spirit not the fox's is her most powerful weapon even if some of his advice was pretty cheesy I still think it was pretty good advice.
  • I really hated seeing Malia at Theo's mercy when she was restrain so she wouldn't hurt even herself or him even though he didn't do anything I still didn't like her being in that position.
  • I felt really bad for Malia when she had to use the dread doctor torture device to find out where her mother is but I'm glad that it worked and she figured out where her mother is keeping Deaton.
  • I liked that Malia went into the boys locker room to give Liam a message for Scott and that she did not care at all that there was a bunch of guys that were half dressed walking around.
  • I liked that Malia thought to have Liam tell Scott that he was right about the tunnels and the dread doctors working out of there.
  • I liked that Braeden doesn't trust Theo at all and doesn't want him coming with her and Malia on mission to rescue Deaton and kill the desert wolf. I liked that Braeden said that she should kill Theo since he killed Scott.
  • I liked that Braeden told Malia that Scott wouldn't blame Malia for Deaton getting capture by the desert wolf and I have mixed feelings about Malia not wanting Scott there because he would stop her from killing the desert wolf.
  • I liked that Scott followed Liam to the tunnel and that the two of them looked for the entrance to the dread doctors place together.
  • I liked that Malia wanted to go into the place she knew the desert wolf was because she doesn't walk away from things like this even if her odds aren't good and that Braeden didn't want to go in without knowing more because she knows how dangerous and smart the desert wolf is, I really liked this because it shows a lot about how different their personalities are.
  • I liked that we got a bit of Meredith's backstory when she told Lydia about the first time she used her powers and I liked how she compares her scream to a bomb and she points out how important it is that Lydia's scream in a bullet and not a bomb.
  • I liked that Stiles visited Lydia in Eichen House and talked to her first about just school and then telling her how much they need her and that she needs to wake up, I just thought that it was sweet that he came to visit her and even sweeter that he held her hand while he talked to her.
  • I liked that Stiles noticed that a part of Lydia's head had been shaven in order for them to drill a hole in it and I liked how he was so concerned for her well being and that he put together that something was wrong so quickly although pretty much anyone that spent any time at Eichen House would assume that pretty much everything that goes on there is not good so it wasn't as impressive as other times when he figured things out.
  • I liked that Stiles stole a keycard off of a guard from Eichen House as he was leaving because he knows he'll need it later on.
  • I liked that when Liam told Scott that he wanted to do something right that Scott tells him that he does a lot of things right I like that even though the relationship isn't the best right now that Scott still doesn't want Liam to think badly of himself.
  • I liked that Liam tells Scott that he doesn't think that he can just tell Scott that he's sorry because he feels like it doesn't mean anything unless some action backs it up like saving Scott's life and I like how Scott tells him he'll probably have a chance to do that someday.
  • I like that Scott was upset that Chris cured Gerard and that he's having them help him because he doesn't trust Gerard at all and for good reason.
  • I liked that Chris and Gerard showed Scott and Liam the mural of what is to come where it involves the hellhound and the beast.
  • I hated that Theo of course betrayed Malia and Braeden and I hated that he shot Malia and that he did all this to get some blue claws from the desert wolf.
  • I liked that Chris and Gerard made Parrish remember that he's a hellhound.
  • I liked that Lydia gained control of her powers just in time to use them to save Malia from getting killed by the desert wolf.
  • I dislike the desert wolf well in general but I especially hate how she wants to kill Malia because she lost some of power after giving birth to her and know she wants to kill her to get it back.
  • I like that Malia was mad at the desert wolf because she caused her to kill her real family and I like that it's clear that Malia doesn't consider the desert wolf to be her family just because she's her blood.
  • I liked that when Malia had to choose between killing the desert wolf or saving Deaton that she chose to save Deaton.
  • I dislike that Deucalion wants Theo to cut out Scott's eyeballs and give them to him because his bitter about the cure for his blindness not lasting which isn't Scott's fault at all so I think it's really unfair of him to be mad at him for that.
  • I like that the pack is now mainly back together an dare now focused on getting Lydia out of Eichen House.

Top 8 Songs from Wicked

As I'm sure most people already know that Wicked is a musical that is a retelling of the Wizard of Oz with the wicked witch as a main character who went to school with Glinda. The musical was pretty good and has a lot of good songs and singing so I decided to make a list of my favorite songs.
1. No Good Deed: This song is one that comes when Elphaba has just lost Fiyero and in a bigger sense all hope and this makes her consider how trying to be good has never turned out well for her so what's the point of it. This is a song in which Elphaba is filled with desperation, pain and regret for all that has happened in her life. This song is one where Elphaba reflects upon how every time she tries to do good it back fires on her and her wondering both is it worth it or if her good deeds didn't turn out well because her intentions weren't pure enough. This song also marks the  pretty much the only time that Elphaba truly considers turning bad which really shows how powerful the emotions are in this song.
2. As Long As Your Mine: This is the one romantic duet that Elphaba and Fiyero have through out the whole play and this song is just really beautiful and romantic. This is one of the few moments when these two characters get to be together and it's one that shows their romance well. I also just really love Idina Menzel and Leo Norbert Butz voices and think their really what makes the song for me.
3. For Good: This song is one of the last ones of the show and it's Elphaba and Glinda parting ways for the last time and since the relationship between these two are the heart of the show it's pretty heartbreaking to see them part ways. This song is about how meeting each other has forever changed who both of them are as people and how their grateful they were a part of each other's lives. This is one that always tends to make me cry because I find them saying goodbye for the last time so sad but I also find this song beautiful as well as emotional.
4. Defying Gravity: This is one of the most popular songs of the show as well as one of my favorites and one the most important ones. This song is a real turning point in the show for Elphaba with her realizing that the wizard isn't the man she thought he was and that she doesn't want to work with him but instead by herself and by her own rules. This song is one that is very much about Elphaba finding her independence and embracing her own thoughts on what it means to do the right thing and being willing to risk being seen as the bad by the rest of society. It's also a song that shows how far Elphaba and Glinda's relationship has developed in the first act because they wish each other well before they go there separate ways. I also just really love all the high notes that Idina Menzel holds through out this song.
5. What is this Feeling?: This is a really fun song that is about when Elphaba and Glinda first have to deal with being room mates. This song in a lot of ways feels like something that belongs at the beginning of a romcom since they spend the whole song singing about how much they loath each other and how they had that feeling at first start, it's just kind of funny how it sounds a lot like a love song especially since they promise to loath each other forever.
6. March of the Witch Hunters: This song is unsurprisingly the angry mob song and for some reason these kind of songs are ones that I really enjoy probably because of how angry this song is the more emotion a song has in a musical the better the song, at least in my experience.
7. The Wizard and I: This is one of the first ones in the show and it's about Elphaba now feeling hopeful about life after hearing that she has a talent that makes the wizard interested in her. What I love about this song is how hopeful and fully of wonder Elphaba is during this song and I like her daydreaming about how a life working with the wizard would make everyone see her differently and accept her in a way that she never dared to hope they would. I also just really love Idina Menzel especially when she hits high notes which does once or twice in this song.
8. Popular: This is one of the most popular(fittingly) of the shows and if you only heard one song from the show it's this one. This song is about how Glinda gives Elphaba a make over that she doesn't really want so that she can be popular. This song is a lot of fun and it really gives Kristen Chenoweth a chance to shine.

TV Review: The 100: Resurrection(2.13)

                                               The 100: Resurrection(2.13)Review
  • I liked that the episode starts off with Clarke seeing how much her decision to let the attack happened has hurt the people she is suppose to be fighting for and I liked the obvious guilt that we can see her feeling.
  • I liked that everyone back at the grounder village were focusing their energy on finding the wounded and saving those that they can save.
  • I thought it was a bit odd that Lexa didn't understand that Clarke wanted to find the spotter in order to kill them but I did like that Lexa told Clarke that killing the spotter wouldn't make her feel any better.
  • I disliked that Indra refused to allow Lincoln to save her life because he was a reaper because she honestly put more people life in danger by refusing to let the only person that was close enough to her to save to help her and so that led to people getting shot when they tried to get to her.
  • I liked that Abby spent a good part of the episode doing her best to save Kane who was trapped under the wreckage of the attack.
  • I liked that Monty, Jasper and the others that are trapped in Mont Weather were preparing themselves for a small scale war against the Mountain Men.
  • I liked seeing how brutally those trapped in Mont Weather were when they were attacking the Mountain Men I liked that they were willing to kill to save their own lives and I liked that their ruthlessness in their attacks was something that surprised the Mountain Men and got them to retreat while the only had taken one of their own.
  • I liked that Bellamy used his undercover position with the help of Maya to save Fox the girl that was taken to be killed by the Mountain Men and I liked that when she saw that Bellamy was the one that saved her she hugged him.
  • I thought it was interesting that Maya's parents were part of a movement in Mont Weather that were against using outsider blood in order to survive and that her mom was so dedicated to the cause that she chose to die rather than take a treatment. I liked that while Maya's dad has strayed from these ways that Maya was able to convince him to help them keep the members of the hundred alive.
  • I liked that Clarke, Lexa and Lincoln all worked together to track down and kill the spotter.
  • I was really worried about Maya when she was sent down to the room where the members of the hundred were with an oxygen suit with a limited amount of air in order to convince them to surrender.
  • I liked that Jasper told Maya that he won't let her die and that Maya told him she won't let him surrender.
  • I liked that Octavia was able to convince the grounders to work with her when it came to saving their people from the wreckage.
  • I liked that Abby told Kane about how Clarke knew about the attack before it happened and how she could have prevented it and I liked that Kane pointed out that Clarke learned that kind of ruthlessness from living on the Ark where they had killed people for small offenses such as stealing.
  • I liked that the member of the hundred worked out a plan for them to get Maya off the level in order for her to survive and without them having to surrender.
  • I liked that after they had rescued Maya, Jasper hugged Bellamy and that Bellamy told him about the grounder army that was coming to help them. I felt a bit sad when Jasper mentioned Finn because he doesn't know that Finn died a while ago.
  • I liked that Clarke called Lincoln her people before she shot him through the shoulder in order to shot the spotter through the heart and I liked how Lincoln was impressed by the shot she made. I also liked that Clarke admitted that killing the spotter didn't make her feel any better.
  • I liked that the members of the hundred escaped from the room their were being held in and that they now have split up and are staying with members of the fraction in Mont Weather that are against using outsider blood to survive.
  • I liked that when Lexa was getting the crowd ready to go to war that Abby pointed out that many of the wounded still needed help.
  • I liked that Indra got over whatever problem she had with Lincoln but I didn't really understand what changed for her since they didn't really spend much time together this episode.
  • I liked that Octavia and Clarke told each other they were glad that they were alive.
  • I liked that Abby seems to have a bit more understanding about why Clarke did what she did but that she is still worrying about Clarke crossing the lines so she tells Clarke to remember that they're suppose to be the good guys.

TV Review: Scream: The Dance(1.09)

                                                  Scream: The Dance(1.09)Review
  • I find the fact that the last person that Mr. Branson was sleeping with turning up dead to be very concerning even if he doesn't turn out to be the one behind all the murders that happened this season it's still very possible that he still is a murderer.
  • I feel bad for Brooke because her life has been going pretty badly these last couple episodes and I really can't blame her for not being able to accept that Mr. Branson could be a killer.
  • When Jake tells Brooke that if he ever found Branson hurting her he'd kill I believe him both because he cares about Brooke and because he seems like the kind of person that will kill someone someday.
  • I like that Emma felt that she had to put herself in the room with Branson in order to see if he has some kind of a reaction to her because she knows the true killer would.
  • I don't think that Branson is the killer because he didn't seem to have much of a reaction to Emma and he didn't see how her mom would be relevant in anyway and the real killer is very fixated on Emma and her mom.
  • The fact that someone was spying on Brooke is something that made me feel uncomfortable and leads me to believe that the real killer is definitely still out there.
  • I liked that Noah is excited about the idea that Branson could be Bandon James's son I like that this something that excites him.
  • I liked that for a pretty big part of this episode Emma thought that everything was over and that she was able to enjoy life again and focus on fun things like going to a dance rather than worrying about who would die next.
  • I find it a bit suspicious that  it took Audrey this long to figure out where to find the missing footage from Rachel's computer.
  • I liked that when Audrey wanted to warn Emma about Kieran possibly being the killer and then Noah started a song that he told her that Kieran wouldn't kill Emma during a dance sequence.
  • I do find it suspicious that Kieran met Nina in a bar a day before she died but I mostly believe the story that he tells Emma about what happened that night, the part I don't believe is that he didn't sleep with her.
  • I like that Emma is conflicted about whether to believe Audrey or Kieran about what being with Nina that night means until the end of the episode when Piper gives Emma reason to believe that Kieran is the killer.
  • I'm a bit worried about the Sheriff dying since he's bloody and tied against a tree.
  • I'm curious about how Branson escaped because I don't think he could've done it on his own and I wonder if his the one that killed those people at Sheriff station or if someone else did.

TV Review: Teen Wolf: Codominance(5.13)

                                           Teen Wolf: Codominance(5.13)Review
  • I was frightened for Kira when she was battling the skinwalkers but I liked that when the fighting stopped that it was clear that the skinwalkers wanted to help Kira rather than kill her although I think that them jumping to the conclusion that if she fails a test she'll have to become one of them is harsh and seems like a dramatic leap of what needs to happen.
  • I liked that Liam came to Scott and told him everything that he knew about Theo and his pack of Chimeras.
  • I liked that even though Scott wasn't ready to let Liam them again that he admitted to Stiles that he will eventually and I liked that Stiles thought it was important that Scott makes things right with Liam.
  • I like that Scott and Stiles friendship seems to be repaired and I like that their going on a road trip to find and bring Kira back home.
  • I like that Theo is trying to find the beast and seems to see it as a threat but I'm sure that whatever it is he intends to do when he finds it is bad so I'm glad that he didn't get anytime alone with it although the dread doctors plans for the beast are clearly no better and probably even worse than Theo's so that's not a good thing.
  • I like that Kira is shown to be scared by both her fox spirit and what will happen if she can't past the skinwalker's test. I like that Noshiko tells Kira that she fears that if Kira can't control her fox spirit it will consume her and she won't be alive anymore which is the only reason that Noshiko would be willing to leave Kira with the skinwalkers because they could keep her alive.
  • I also liked how Noshiko brought up the fact that since Kira is a kitsune she'll have hundreds of years to live so her having to stay with the skinwalkers for years to find control of her fox spirit is better deal than her being consumed by it. I also liked that Kira's main worry is about being able to see Scott and her friends again because she does already have a life with people who don't have centuries to live unlike her.
  • I liked how this episode explained that damnatio memoriae is a process when someone is erased completely from history often do to how horrible their deeds were and I liked that Scott and Stiles figured out that this is what must have happened to the thing the doctors brought back.
  • I liked that Mason reminded Liam that it would be a bad idea to get involved when he saw the way that Liam was looking at Hayden and Theo.
  • I liked that Scott asked Stiles if he was talking to Malia and I liked that Stiles told him that now Malia isn't talking to him because that implies that Stiles has tried to talk to Malia at some point which makes me happy.
  • I liked that when Scott told Stiles that he thinks that Malia has found her mom that Stiles told him that he knew that she didn't stop looking even though she told him she did, I just like despite the fact that Stiles and Malia were distant from each other for most of this season that the still clearly know and understand the way the other works. I also liked that Scott has guessed that Malia is planning on killing her mom.
  • I liked that during science class Liam and Hayden and Mason and Cory were paired up together.
  • I liked that Liam told Hayden why he didn't trust Theo and thought that Hayden working with him was a bad idea and Hayden told him why she did trust Theo.
  • I liked that when a teacher saw that both Scott and Stiles were missing from class that she just knew they were ditching and not both sick. I also liked that the teacher was creeped out by Theo when he said that Lydia would be out for a while.
  • I like that Meredith is still helping Lydia learn how to control her powers, how to concentrate them so that it can be used as a weapon.
  • I liked that Cory told Mason that there aren't really any good guys and bad guys anymore just alive or dead because when things are matter of survival what is moral right is rarely someone's biggest concern and I can't blame him for being more concerned about being alive than being good.
  • I liked that Cory told Mason that he wanted to stay alive with Mason and I liked that even though Mason doesn't quite agree with Cory's idea of no good guys or bad guys he still very much wants to be with Cory. I also just think those two are really cute.
  • I liked that when Scott and Stiles were stealing gas that they left money for the gas that they took since they only stole it because the gas station was closed.
  • I liked that Stiles finally told Scott what really happened that night with Donovan and I liked that Scott asked why he didn't just tell him that in the first place. I liked that Stiles told Scott that he didn't tell him the truth because he feared he crossed a line that he couldn't uncross and I liked that Scott told him he knows the difference between self defense and murder.
  • The scene with Kira fighting the spirit was one that made me frightened by her but I was also a bit confused since every time she cut the spirit with her sword she would also be hurt by it so in the end she had to work with her fox spirit to defeat it which I originally thought was the point but since the skinwalkers were upset with her after she past the test apparently it wasn't so I kind of think that this test was one that was design to trap her.
  • I liked how Scott told Stiles that he was feeling guilty about not just staying and talking to Stiles for a few more minutes about what happened with Donovan and I liked that Stiles told him it was Theo's doing and not Scott's. I also liked how Scott told Stiles that he feels guilty for putting the pack in situations where they have to use violence to defend themselves and how he's been worrying for awhile that someone in the pack would kill someone and Scott feels like he should've been the one that bared that burden not Stiles or anyone else. I liked that Stiles put his hand on Scott's shoulder in way that said it's okay to Scott and for him not to feel guilty about these things.
  • I liked that Malia beat the crap out of Theo because he's awful and deserves it. I also like that the main reason she stopped was because he offered to help her find the desert wolf.
  • I liked that when the skinwalkers demand that Kira stay with them despite the fact that she past their test that Noshiko told them that they would have to fight their way through her before she let them get to Kira.
  • I liked that Scott and Stiles showed up just in time to offer an escape for Kira and Noshiko from the skinwalkers. I liked that Scott and Kira kissed a whole bunch after being reunited with each other.
  • I liked that Mason told Scott that he learned that Theo is looking for Deucalion for help.

TV Review: Revenge:Loss(4.17)

                                                     Revenge: Loss(4.17)Review
  • I liked how the episode started off with Emily dreaming both of Jack being taken off to jail and taken away from Carl and memories of when her father was arrested and taken away from her as a little girl, I really liked that the show made this comparison.
  • I liked how when Emily told her father both that Jack was being framed and that she was going to make someone pay for this that he told her that isn't the way that you should be dealing with things but I also liked how she said she was done watching terrible things happen to her friends.
  • I liked that Stevie came into town to help Jack win his court case and I liked that she kept reassuring him that everything was going to be fine every time he started worrying about how things were going.
  • I liked that Emily called Margaux out for dragging Jack into their feud and I hated how Margaux put all of this Emily because this her doing not Emily's.
  • Even I know that Louise did accidently kill her brother I still felt so bad for her when she was crying about his death because she was so truly upset by it and I liked that when Ben implied that Louise could have been involved in his death that Nolan stepped in and defended her and then comforted her.
  • I liked that when Emily and Nolan were so offend that Ben would say that Jack was hostile and resisted arrested in his eyewitness report that Jack pointed out that it was the truth and therefore there's no reason to be upset with him for it.
  • I think that it was really low of Margaux to hire a guy to spike Jack's drink and get him arrested just because of her issues with Emily.
  • I liked that when Emily found Margaux's guy she fought him and got the upper hand and that the only reason why he escape was because Emily choose getting the blood sample that would clear Jack's name over him.
  • I like that Emily convinced Ben to find away to sneak the sample back into the lab and that although he was reluctant to do so he did do it in the end.
  • I liked that Victoria broke into Emily's house to have a chat with her and I like that Emily was completely annoyed by her and told her to get Margaux to stop going after Jack before kicking her out of her house.
  • I liked that when Tony implied that Jack wasn't a good parent that Nolan did his best to defend Jack's parenting, I just always love seeing how much Nolan loves his friends.
  • I liked how once they found out the judge was the one that was in Margaux's pocket that they took her down by threatening to reveal her under table dealings.
  • I liked that Louise told Nolan what really happen that night with her brother and I liked that when Louise told him that she worried that he'd hate her that he told her that he could never hate her and I liked that he told her that telling the police the truth wouldn't do any good.
  • I liked how Tony came back to talk to Nolan and that he told him that he was touched by how he defended his friend. I find these two pretty cute together but because of the strangeness of Nolan and Louise's relationship which I also enjoy I'm not really sure how to feel about the whole thing.
  • I liked that Emily went to Margaux and tried to put a stop to the end of the cycle of revenge by telling her to give up.
  • I disliked that when Margaux loss her baby because her unwillingness to give up revenge and that she blamed her baby's death on Emily and got Victoria back on the revenge train again.

TV Review: The 100: Rubicon(2.12)

                                                    The 100: Rubicon(2.12)Review
  • Cage having the ability to survive on the ground is something that somewhat scares me especially because this means that their going to keep using the people trapped in mount weather for their bone marrow.
  • I liked that Clarke was worried when Bellamy was late to check in but I dislike how she was expecting Raven to do things that she didn't have enough information or parts to do although I do understand why she wanted them done I just didn't like how she got mad at Raven for things that aren't her fault.
  • I like that after Bellamy told them that their people were in immediate danger that the plan changed to one of how to keep them alive rather than preparing for war and I like the Clarke wanted to stay after hearing this news rather than go to the war council meeting.
  • I like that Clarke trusts Kane to go in her place to the ground war council meeting. I also like that Abby is still worried about Clarke carrying the responsibilities of a leader and that Kane is encouraging her.
  • I like how Murphy is taking the journey to the city of light a lot better than most of the people on that journey. I like that when a guy touched him Murphy threatened to end him than said in a non-criminal way because of the way that everyone was looking at him.
  • I liked that Murphy and Emori a girl the met on their way to the city of light connected a bit with them both not feeling welcome among their people and I liked that they both clearly have a lot rough edges but seem a bit softer when talking to each other.
  • I liked that when Clarke hears that mount weather is planning on bomb the war council meeting she decides to go their to warn everyone about it before it can happen. I understand why Clarke lied to Bellamy about Octavia not being their but I'm not sure that it was the right move to make and it's clear that Raven isn't sure either.
  • I like that Octavia is worried about Lincoln but I dislike how Indra is trying to make her believe that she's wrong to worry.
  • I like that the kids in mount weather do their best to fight back when one of their own is taken to have their bone marrow harvested and I liked that during one of these times Bellamy slipped Jasper a gun.
  • I like that Bellamy convinced President Wallace to help them find a way to stall for time before they can figure out of the mountain.
  • I dislike how Lexa convinced Clarke to abandoned all the others at the war council meeting but I did like that Clarke was clearly conflicted about doing this.
  • I liked that even when Emori ended up turning on the group she still ended up giving Murphy directions on how to get to the city of light even though she did rob them and knocked him out, I liked that he still decided to trust her word.
  • I liked that Raven let it slip that Octavia was still at the place of the war Council meeting to Bellamy and I like that he was still able to do what he set out to do even though he was worried about his sister.
  • I disliked how when Lincoln didn't do what Octavia wanted him to do right a way that she hit him that just feels a bit abusive to me so I didn't like that part.
  • I liked how when Abby figured out that Clarke knew about the bombing before it happened that she told Clarke that what she did was wrong because she let so many people who are on their side die when she easily could have prevented it, I liked that Abby pointed out that Clarke crossed a line because no matter how the war turns out that change that their are some lines you shouldn't cross and if you do cross them you should be aware of that.
  • I like that Bellamy was able to prevent Jasper from being taken to have his bone marrow harvest by causing a containment breach and I like that this also gave the group a chance to steal weapons off the dead guards.
  • I like that President Wallace continues to tell his son Cage that what he is doing is wrong and I dislike how this continues to go over Cage's head and that he forced his father to use the bone marrow even though he knows his dad is against the whole process.
Please tell me your thoughts on this episode.

TV Review: Scream: Ghosts(1.08)

                                                    Scream: Ghosts(1.08)Review
  • I felt really bad for Emma when it was shown that she was just completely in shock after witnessing Will's death but I liked that they showed this since there really isn't any other way she should be feeling after seeing something like that.
  • I thought that it was nice of Noah to visit Jake in the hospital even though the two of them aren't even friends although I'm not really sure why he visited him.
  • I liked that Jake seemed really upset after Brooke told him that Will had died.
  • I liked that when Emma told her mom that she was ready to go back to school and have things go back to normal again that her mom was concerned and that she told her that things going back to normal is going to take a long time.
  • I liked that Piper turned in all the evidence she had on the Mayor and I liked that Brooke was the one that convinced her to do so.
  • I liked that both Audrey and Noah were both very surprised and concern to see Emma at school especially since she was trying to act like everything is fine. I also liked that they both told her they understand what she's going through because they do actually since they had both had their girlfriends murdered in the past couple of weeks.
  • I liked that Noah and Audrey are thinking that Mr. Branson is the killer and they're looking into him more closely. I also like that Noah was able to answer Mr.Branson's question when he called the two of them out for not paying attention in class.
  • I was glad to learn that Brooke's mom is still alive but I also liked that this didn't get Brooke to believe that her father was innocent because she's still has seen evidence of him being a killer.
  • I liked that Kieran told Emma that he's there for her and I liked that he did his best not to question her because he understands that's not what she needs right now.
  • I felt really bad for Emma with how she kept hallucinating through out the episode.
  • I liked that Emma told her mom and the Sheriff that she isn't worried about what might happen to her but about what might happen to everyone around her because the killer so far is fixated on making her suffer not killing her.
  • I liked that when Noah wonder why he hadn't thought of a bodysnatching theory yet that Audrey told him it was because he isn't crazy.
  • I like that Audrey and Noah told Emma that her not being okay right now is something that is completely normal and that the two of them are there for her. I also liked that when Noah accidently implied that Emma was crazy that Audrey told him he needs an off switch and he said he knows.
  • I felt bad for Emma when she told Piper that she thinks it might be better if she doesn't survive this but I did like that Piper did her best convince Emma to keep fighting.
  • I felt bad for Emma that she was avoiding sleep long enough that she actually had to stay in hospital because she just wasn't able to make herself sleep at home and still had problems doing so in the hospital.
  • I like that Emma's dad came back to see her and I like that Emma wasn't willing to forgive him for leaving eight years ago and barely acknowledging any of her letters.
  • I liked that when the Mayor told Brooke that the body he was carrying was the body of a junkie friend of her mother that had O.D. in their home that while she believed what her father was saying she still furious with him since he choose his reputation over doing the right thing.
  • I find it interesting that Emma's mom had a child fathered by Brandon James and that the killer is most likely that child. I also like that Emma didn't get made at her mom for keeping this a secret from her.
  • I liked that Noah and Audrey found evidence that made it look like Mr. Branson was the killer and that they brought this evidence to the police so that he could be arrested.
  • I felt scared for Brooke when she was trying to hook up with Mr. Branson because it looked like he was the killer but by the time he was arrested the show had me convinced that he isn't actually the killer since the killer attacked Brooke and Mr. Branson showed up too quickly afterwards for it to be him.

TV Review: Teen Wolf: Damnatio Memoriae(5.12)

                                        Teen Wolf: Damnatio Memoriae(5.12)Review
  • I like that Hayden's sister is doing her best to keep an eye on Hayden after she disappeared for three days and I liked the irony of her saying she was  worrying that Hayden was dead when she actually had been.
  • The chimera that is called the beast at the end of the episode is something I'm finding pretty terrifying since it's so big and seemingly impossible to fight.
  • I like that Liam went to look for Hayden and I like that when they were running from the beast they did their best to look out for each other. I felt bad for Liam when Hayden left him to look for her sister but I understand why she felt that looking out for her sister's safety was more important at that moment.
  • I was a bit disturbed that Tracy was so willing to kill her own dad because in the first half of the season she seemed to be a lot kinder than that although I did like that Theo told her that she didn't have to be the one that killed him.
  • I liked that Parrish showed Scott the footage of the beast but sadly Scott wasn't really able to figure out much other than the fact that the beast is a chimera.
  • I liked that Scott made an investigation board of what he knows about the chimeras and I like that it wasn't really working out for him because this is something that's really more Stiles department I just like how this shows that Scott and Stiles skill sets compliment each other and that's part of what makes them need one another.
  • I liked that when Stiles woke up by his dad's hospital bed and saw that he was missing that he knew right away that he went down to the morgue, I just like that he just knew this is where he would have gone.
  • I liked that the Sheriff figured out that Stiles was the one that killed Donovan in self defense and I like that the Sheriff told Stiles that he would have believed anything Stiles would have told him and that he would have protected him. I also liked that when Stiles told him that he had wanted Donovan dead that the Sheriff pointed out that wanting someone dead and murdering them are two very different things.
  • I liked how the Sheriff told Stiles that his really problem is that he is unable to forgive himself even though he knows that he did what he did to save his own life he still feels guilty for killing someone. I liked how the Sheriff told Stiles that when you kill someone you do loose a part yourself that you won't ever get back but things like forgiving yourself and saving someone else's life can help to make things better.
  • I felt sad for both Scott and Malia when she was telling him that she couldn't help him because she's planning to do something that she knows he won't approve of. I felt bad for Scott because he really doesn't have anyone right now and he really does need the help and I felt bad for Malia because she believes that she'll loose Scott and the rest of the pack if she kills her mother in order to protect herself and anyone else her mom plans to kill.
  • I liked that Braeden and Malia were torturing a guy for information about her mom but when it became clear that torture wouldn't make him talk Braeden bribed him instead and that made him tell them everything he knows, I just like that the two of them are willing to change tactics. I'm also worried about Deaton since the Desert Wolf is keeping him as a hostage.
  • I like that Liam and Mason figured out that Theo is bring chimeras back from the dead and I like that the two of them are trying their best to figure out what Theo is up to.
  • I liked that when Mason was trying to figuring out information about what Theo is up to he instead got a date with Cory for Saturday night.
  • I like that Stiles just admits to his dad that he knows all his passwords and I like that the Sheriff was trying to keep the fact that another body was found from Stiles but he had no such luck and Stiles went right into investigator mode despite his dad's protests.
  • I found the fact that Lydia was walking around outside of her bodying to be bit worrying but I did like that she found Meredith and that she was willing to help teach her to use her voice as a weapon.
  • I like that Hayden doesn't fully trust Theo but I disliked how this got Theo to threaten Hayden by telling her that she couldn't keep anything from him.
  • I'm still really worried about Scott's wound that isn't healing and I hope that he has at least used stitches on it by now.
  • I liked that Stiles went to Scott for help with figuring out how the beast got in the power plant and I liked that Scott was completely willing to help.
  • I liked that Cory told Theo that reason why he went to help out with cleaning the school library up is because he wanted to do something nice although Theo says it was to feel normal but I personally think it's both things. I didn't like how Theo is using Cory's fear of dying in order to get him to do whatever he says.
  • I really liked seeing Scott and Stiles working together again even if there wasn't anything very big happening it still felt like a lot of progress was being made with just small gestures such as them working together to lift the storage container or Stiles holding the black light while Scott tried to take a picture.
  • I liked that Liam is hesitant to call Scott because he feels too ashamed of what he has done to speak to him and I liked that Mason told him that as long as he tells Scott he's sorry he's sure that whatever else he says won't really matter.
  • I'm kind of amazed by Theo's complete lack of shame he literally murdered Scott a few days ago and just sent his pack to attack him and then he's talking about how their on the same side and need to work together which just sounds absurd after everything Theo has done.
  • I felt bad for Hayden when she told Liam that everything feels wrong now that she's came back from the dead but I found it sweet that she said everything but him felt wrong now.
  • I liked that Stiles and Scott figured out the new chimera is actually something old rather then something new.
  • I really disliked that Chris healed Gerard but I do like that it was implied he could have done so a lot earlier and that he's only doing it to get Gerard to help Scott out because Gerard knows what the beast is because of their family history.
  • I liked that Scott was optimistic about getting the pack back together while Stiles was cynical but still willing to help out because that's just the way that things should be, I'm just so glad that these two are getting back to being best friends.
  • I find it interesting that Kira is going to be battling skinwalkers in order gain control of her fox spirit.

TV Review: How To Get Away With Murder: It's All My Fault(1.15)

                      How To Get Away With Murder: It's All My Fault(1.15)Review
  • I liked how chaotic the first scene felt with Michaela, Connor and Laurel all telling Annalise  at once why  they now believe that Rebecca killed Sam and I liked how the first thing Annalise did was getting them to be quiet and the asked Wes what was going on.
  • I liked that Annalise was calm when she was dealing with Rebecca and I like that she wasn't willing to jump to any conclusions too quickly. I also liked that Annalise insisted that they didn't keep Rebecca tied up because they're not monsters.
  • I liked that Annalise decided that the way to deal with Rebecca was for them to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Rebecca was the one that killed Sam and I like that while Connor, Michaela and Laurel were all able to make a case that she did none of them were good enough to prove beyond a reasonable doubt.
  • I liked how in this episode most of the flashbacks were that of what Lila was doing on the night that she died and I liked that we finally found out what actually happened that night in the end.
  • I liked that Rebecca did her best to try to manipulate any information that she had in order to convince the group either accept her innocence or turn on each other because while some of her tactics may make her look bad such as telling Connor that she believes that Wes killed his mother, she still knew that she had to do something because she knew the odds of her getting out of this weren't good if she did nothing.
  • I liked how Michaela stood up for herself when she was talking to Aiden's mother and I especially liked when she told her she didn't care about whether or not Aiden loved her because she loved herself.
  • I liked how it was revealed that Rebecca didn't kill Lila but she is the one that found her body first but since she panicked and didn't tell anyone about it a lot of her actions made it look like she was the one that killed her. I also liked how we learned she intentionally drugged Rudy with a drug called purple X because she was afraid that he would say something to incriminate her.
  • I liked how after Rebecca told Wes the truth that he was now sure again that she didn't kill Lila and I liked how he admitted that Rebecca has done both stupid and bad things but that doesn't make her a killer and that he understood why Rebecca would think that the world is out to screw her over.
  • I was surprised that Oliver turned out to have tested positive for HIV, I think.
  • I was surprised to learn that Laurel had Michaela's ring ever since the night of Sam's death and she had been keeping it as a way to insure her silence.
  • I'm glad that Nate finally called that lawyer that Annalise said he should because while he's right not to trust her in general, she does know best how to get people off of murder charges.
  • I felt bad for Wes when he came to Annalise and told her how he felt like everything that happened is all his fault.
  • I was a little surprise to learn that Frank was the one that killed Lila because I've been thinking that he could have been a hit man for a while now. On the other hand I wasn't surprised at all to learn that Sam was the one that order Frank to kill Lila and since he made the call I think Sam is still pretty guilty of Lila's murder so I don't think any of us should feel too bad about his death now.
  • I'm sad that Rebecca is dead and I'm now trying to figure out who killed her, my first thought was Frank although that does seem a little obvious.

TV Review: Revenge: Retaliation(4.16)

                                                 Revenge: Retaliation(4.16)Review
  • I find it a bit odd and kind of funny that Victoria lost her court case against Natalie between episodes.
  • I liked how Emily was concerned about her father being involved with Natalie since she's a Grayson and they obviously can't be trusted.
  • I liked that Ben was only pretending to help Margaux hurt Emily even though it would have been understandable if he didn't since someone he cared about was in very real danger and he only just met Emily a couple months ago.
  • I feel bad for Jack that he seems to be unable to find time to spend with his son because of his work schedule and probably a lot of other things as well.
  • While I don't trust Lyman at all I get why Louise wants so badly to trust him because he's her brother and his the only family she could ever even consider trusting again and she doesn't want to loose her entire family.
  • I liked how Emily insisted on going with Ben to help out his ex because she's a lot better at this type of thing than he is because she has been doing it for years now.
  • I liked that Victoria warned David that Natalie was using him because she really didn't owe that to him after how he treated her this season so it was really good of her to look out for him.
  • I liked how Nolan not only offered Jack a job at his club but also offered to make a daycare center for Carl just because he cares about Jack so much that he can't not try to find a way to fix Jack's problems for him.
  • I liked that Nolan had a problem with Lyman staying with him and Louise because he doesn't like or trust the guy but I also like that Louise pointed out that he should give Lyman a second chance for her.
  • I liked how Jack gave Nolan some advice about how he needs to compromise with Louise in order for their relationship to work and I liked how Nolan admitted that he has no idea how to act in a normal relationship because all of his past ones have been disasters. I did like that by the end of the episode he was willing to compromise.
  • I liked how Victoria saved David from being sent back to jail because of Natalie's lies about him.
  • I liked that Emily and Ben were able to save his ex from being harmed.
  • I didn't like that Lyman turned out to be working for Margaux but I did like that Louise chose to protect Nolan. I was sad that Lyman ended up falling off the cliff and dying because of how much that had to of hurt Louise to feel responsible for her brother's death.
  • I felt bad for Jack when he was pulled over arrested and had to watch his son taken away from him even though he had done nothing wrong.
Please tell me your thoughts on this episode.

TV Review: Teen Wolf: The Last Chimera(5.11)

                                      Teen Wolf: The Last Chimera(5.11)Review
  • I find it interesting that Theo let his sister die because he wanted her heart so that the dread doctors could make him a chimera and I still think that Theo is a terrible person and oddly enough it seems that guy drilled hole into Lydia's head agrees with me.
  • I was a bit surprised to find out that Lydia being in Eichen house scenes are still in the future but I did think that the guy talking raised some important points about the dread doctors and Theo but I still don't like him since he drilled hole into Lydia's head.
  • I felt really bad for Stiles when he was worrying about his dad dying and I found it especially sad when he said that he is the only next of kin his dad has because it really drives home the point that there all each other really has.
  • I felt really bad for Scott when he was trying to force himself to heal faster and it just wasn't working. I felt even more bad for Scott when he tried to go out and find a way to help others and then he passed out, I really think that Scott puts too much pressure on himself and I think that he really should've just rest and let himself heal before he tried to help anyone else.
  • I really hate the way that Parrish keeps hallucinating about Lydia because there always so sexual and creepy that being said I was happy that this hallucination helped him to find Lydia and realize that she was in trouble and needed help.
  • I liked that when Liam wanted to tell Hayden's sister that she was dead that Mason stopped him because it wouldn't have made things any easier on anyone and in fact it may have even made things worse for Liam.
  • I liked that Liam caught Hayden's scent and then set out to figure out a way to find out if she was alive or not.
  • While I can understand Stiles anger and even more so understand the sadness behind that anger I dislike that he took it out on Scott by pushing him, hitting him and blaming him for what happened to his dad. Scott didn't have any part in what happened to Stiles' dad and I think it's unfair how sometimes Stiles expect Scott to be able to prevent every bad thing that happens because even though Scott is an alpha werewolf that doesn't mean that he isn't still just a teenager and that's something that Stiles forgets when his dad's life is in danger and that's on him not Scott.
  • I think that Scott is a bit too kind to Stiles after he attacked him because Scott literally did nothing wrong and Scott just forgives him without Stiles even being willing to apologize.
  • I really dislike that Natalie's unwillingness to believe in the supernatural is putting Lydia in danger since she's sending Lydia to Eichen house in order to keep the supernatural from her which won't work obviously. I also found it ironic that Natalie promised Lydia that she'll get the best doctors to help her and then sends her to the worst doctors around.
  • I liked that when Stiles confronted Theo that he still called Scott his best friend because I still feel like that is true despite the way he's behaving this episode I still believe that Stiles loves Scott he's just really angry right now and he's doing a terrible job handling his feelings.
  • I continue to really hate Theo with how he seems to care about absolutely no ones life and I'm glad that it seems like Stiles agrees with me on that front.
  • I liked how when Stiles was knocked out that Scott was super concerned for him and his well being but I dislike how Stiles pushed him a way.
  • I liked how when Liam was asking about dead bodies that his step-dad told him to go home and when he wouldn't he asked Mason to take him home. I also I just liked that his step-dad appeared again since he hasn't in awhile.
  • I liked that when Stiles wanted to look for the chimera that Theo sent after his dad alone that Scott refused to let him go off alone and even stood in front of the care until Stiles agreed that the two of them work better together.
  • I also agree with Scott when he said that they all trusted Theo because even though Stiles distrusted him for most of the first part of a season there came a time when Stiles trusted that Theo wouldn't tell Scott about Donovan without warning, Stiles trusted that he had Theo figured out at least a little bit and he trusted that Theo was blackmailing him with Donovan and he trusted that he had some control over the situation when he really didn't. While the form of trust Stiles put in Theo was a lot different than the form Scott put in him it was still a version of trust that ended up screwing him over in the end.
  • I liked that when Liam walked back into the library it was clearly shown that felt guilty about almost killing Scott the night before.
  • I liked that Mason was so shocked by the fact that Liam ripped the map right out of the book because it's a pretty minor thing to be shocked about in the grand scheme of things.
  • I liked that Scott called Malia to help them and I liked that although things were awkward between them that Stiles didn't demand that Malia left or anything like that.
  • I'm upset that Stiles and Malia apparently broke up and that we really didn't get to see it because that scene they had in the finale really didn't feel like a break up at all. Although I did like how Scott said that he Stiles also kind of broke up because their scene in the rainy did feel like a very angsty rain break up, honestly sometimes I feel like Scott and Stiles are meant to end up together.
  • I liked that when Liam was feeling guilty about what he did to Scott that Mason comforted him by telling him that there were a lot of things that factored into the way that Liam was acting and that he shouldn't be so hard on himself.
  • I liked how Mason told Liam to look for the nemton with his werewolf eyes instead of his human eyes and that this did help them find the nemton.
  • I liked that Scott offered to be there for Malia if she needed someone to talk to about anything that is going on with her.
  • I liked how Liam's step-dad knows that Melissa knows more than she's saying and how he wanted her to tell him what she knows if she thinks it could save the Sheriff's life sadly nothing she knows would be helpful here.
  • I'm glad that Liam knows that Hayden is alive now but I'm worried about Hayden since she is being led around by Theo since she still thinks he's a good guy.
  • I liked the flashback Stiles had of him and his dad at his mom's funeral with his dad reassuring him that he still has him and I liked that his dad told him this again at the end of the episode as well.
  • I liked that when Scott helped Stiles up this time that Stiles didn't push him away like he did earlier in the episode.
  • I liked that Scott called Chris Argent and that he was there to hold the dread doctors off so that the others could escape.
  • I like that Stiles figured out that it was bone marrow that was poisoning his dad and that his dad was able to be saved in the end.
  • I really didn't like that Theo and his pack broke into Eichen House in order to get close to Lydia because Theo wants a hellhound for some reason and I can't imagine that Theo's reason for wanting one is anywhere near good. Although I did like that Theo said that he can't believe that Eichen house is a medical establishment because that's something I've been thinking for years now.
