Ratings

Recommended (Must See): These are the shows that leave a lasting impact that you find yourself having fond memories of and likely re-watching while in a certain mood or to bond with someone who has never seen them.

Positive (Watch This): Be it the characters’ perceptions, the jokes or drama, or simply because it seems all the time and effort made into the production seriously just paid off, this is a show to watch.

Mixed (Stick Around): You can see potential in the future, but it is hard to tell if you’re being optimistic or the series just needs time to flesh everything out.

Negative (Niche Show): The show just seems like it will only appeal to a niche audience. As for the rest? I can’t say with much faith it will hold your interest. This isn’t to say one or two things may not seem like they can be a sort of silver lining or act as some beacon of hope. However, only a strong faith may get you through the season, if not series.

    Orange is the New Black: Season 2/ Episode 1 “Thirsty Bird” – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

    Overview With 95% of season 1’s cast nowhere to be seen, we are stuck with Piper, Alex, and the type of characters which bring 0 interest. Review (with Spoilers) To me, if you never saw the first season and wanted to see what the hype was all about, this episode would make you think this show is vastly overrated. For, as creator Jenji Kohan said, Piper is nothing more than a Trojan Horse. Which is highly visible for without Red, Taystee, Crazy Eyes, Sophia, Poussey and etc, this seems like something which would get cancelled in one season if it was on an actual network.

    Game of Thrones: Season 4/ Episode 9 “The Watchers on the Wall” – Recap/ Review (with Spoilers)

    Overview The Wildlings, and allies, have made it to the wall and for the entire episode we are left wondering who is going to die. Review (with Spoilers) Though people die damn near every episode of Game of Thrones, it is rare that it is because of a full on faction vs. faction battle. But with the Wildlings, and allies, challenging the crows, while the battle isn’t as epic as the one which took place on King’s Landing, it is good enough to distract you from the fact Tyrion’s fate hangs in the balance.

    Game of Thrones: Season 4/ Episode 8 “The Mountain and the Viper” – Recap/ Review (with Spoilers)

    Overview In another emotionally draining episode, we get quite a performance from many of the actors, as we mark another character’s death. Review (with Spoilers) I love and hate this show. I love it because the characters all have such potential, and sometimes it is realized, but I hate this show since anyone is eligible to die and it almost seems like their death could have been prevented. Which is why I call this an emotionally draining episode for you are given a good performance out of Sansa, you get to see Ramsay have a touching moment with his father, Arya making it to the Vale, and then there is Tyrion’s champion Oberyn versus The Mountain.

    Faking It: Season 1/ Episode 1 “Pilot” [Series Premiere] – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

    Overview In a school where you have to stand out to fit in, two girls decide the best way to stand out is to be lesbians. Review (with Spoilers) As MTV continues to try to harness the sometimes raunchy, and often unfiltered, personas of their reality TV stars into scripted series, thus comes Faking It. A show set in Austin, Texas where apparently the liberals rules, conservatives are seen as backwards, and we once again have very few people of color who are visible, and with speaking parts. But with this being MTV, you can’t expect miracles right?

    Game of Thrones: Season 4/ Episode 7 “Mockingbird” – Recap/ Review (with Spoilers)

    Overview New alliances are formed, others strengthened, but being this is Game of Thrones there is always someone willing, and ready, to backstab. Review (with Spoilers) As we creep further and further toward the finale, you are left wondering if The Purple Wedding will be the sole big event of the season. Well, from what it seems, this may not be so. For with a few major events in this episode, we are assured some good combat, as well as uneasy alliances. But, will any of it cumulate into something epic? Well, only time will tell.

    Game of Thrones: Season 4/ Episode 6 “The Laws of Gods and Men” – Recap/ Review (with Spoilers)

    Overview After two or three somber episodes, we get a taste of what made this show popular, and promises of resurgence. Review (with Spoilers) I find it unfortunate, as a fan, that when the show opts to develop characters, further storylines, and actually focus on something besides sex and violence, I get a tad bored of the show. And though it probably speaks much more about me than anything else, I think the fact of the matter is, while the characters are all equally interesting, I would argue the majority of the actors and actresses give only an adequate performance. While Peter Dinklage, as well as Lena Headey, seem to actually be doing more than reciting lines with a taste of feeling, but trying to make their performances almost Shakespearean. Hence why whenever there is a news article on the show, usually one or both are named.

    Game of Thrones: Season 4/ Episode 5 “First of His Name” – Recap/ Review (with Spoilers)

    Overview In a rather mundane episode, politics are a bigger focus than battle. But just to keep those with a bloodlust interested, there is one decent one to satisfy ye. Review (with Spoilers) I’m not fully sure, due to my memory, whether past season of Game of Thrones were more exciting, or if just the exciting moments are all I remember, hence why I come back year after year. Either way, arguably there is one big moment in each season, and with it seeming like Joffrey’s death maybe this season’s big moment, I must admit it is leading this show to have a similar issue to what The Sopranos had. Said issue being that a show known for violence and sex becomes boring once those two features are put on the back burner. Luckily though, with an appearance from Daenerys and Jon’s battle with the Night’s Watch rebels, there are…

    Awkward: Season 4/ Episode 1 “No Woman Is an Island” [Season Premiere] – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

    Overview If you think Jenna didn’t suffer enough from her rebellion period, well think again. Review (with Spoilers) Awkward returns and everyone is feeling senior anxiety. The pressure of going to college is upon everyone, Tamara is freaking herself out trying to keep her life to some strict schedule, and Jenna is just trying to recover academically since, frankly, she hasn’t done much which would make a college go “that one!” But, she hopes to make some last minute changed in her life to salvage some type of adult life for herself.
