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?

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.

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.

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 a handful of things to keep you interested.

Overview

The show finally decides to live up to its name.

Review (with Spoilers)

Call this episode a last minute fix for the ho-hum nature of Twisted has just gotten violently shook up, and while some parts of the shakeup admittedly feels a little forced, and sort of campy, perhaps it can be retooled so when the 2nd season begins they can go full speed ahead. Until then though, there are a few questions left to be answered, and many moments which don’t excite as much as they lead to a raised eyebrow. Details below.

Overview

Welcome to this old haunted house.

Review (with Spoilers)

This is my 5th Toni Morrison book and if there is one thing I’ve learned thus far is, as hard as some of her books are to read, there is much satisfaction. As for the first chapter, I do find myself a bit confused as I try to grasp the who’s who of the story, since many names are flung about and reading Morrison is sometimes like trying to follow along with someone who talks fast with a diverse vocabulary. But still, with the idea of a 2 year old baby haunting a home which the mother doesn’t want to leave, and daughter sort of can’t, it sets up an odd introduction to say the least.

Overview

As things cool down after Joffrey’s wedding, many are ready to build up to the next big event.

Review (with Spoilers)

Seemingly, despite the various media articles about last week’s rape scene, there isn’t much sign that what we may perceive as rape, will be treated as rape. Besides that, there isn’t anything big in this episode, besides the redemption of Jaime and us learning who killed Joffrey. However, even with that said, there are a few gems which do sparkle.
