Hey there, TV addicts.
I really wanted to get this post out for Thursday and then I got sidetracked by a Rowen Atkinson (you know, Mr. Bean) standup routine. I was on YouTube looking at one movie trailer and of course, you know you don’t get off YouTube until six hours later, wondering how in the world you’re watching something Rowan Atkinson made in the ’80s. Anyway, as usual, feel free to object my choices in the nicest way possible.
SPOILER ALERT: Click HERE for the list of shows I watch before you spoil your TV appetite
The Walking Dead’s Forget: The episode was progressing normally. The gang was trying to readjust itself into a social gathering by interacting with people and drinking beer. Sasha couldn’t get with the program…but you couldn’t blame her; she did just lose a lover and her brother in the course of a month. I’m surprised she didn’t find a way to butcher that woman asking her about a favourite meal. Apart from that, the group was acting swimmingly until Caroline scared the bejesus out of that child who followed her to the storage house.
Caroline! Why so serious, though? He’s only a child. I’m sorry but threatening a child with the imagery of his death by the zombies was just too much. If you weren’t squirming in discomfort after her little speech, then you need to check your soul. Caroline. I love you. But check your soul and back off.
Revenge’s Bait: I have always seen Margaux as completely unnecessary to the show. So I found the episode when she was duped by Emily and Jack to be very amusing. Oh, look at what you learned, Margaux: Emily won’t fall for your amateur tricks that easily. She had Victoria as a contender and the woman backed down. You are no match for Emily. None. You will fail and we will see frustrated scenes like this often.
And I just have to point out Jack’s giving of no shits when his kid gave Margaux that bracelet. Brilliant , sneaky and proves to everyone that Jack has always been Emily’s boy toy and no one else. Emily! Give the man a chance. What you are you doing with that idiot…don’t even remember his name. Sorry not sorry.
The Originals They All Asked for You: Eva Sinclair. The writers chose a good combination of names to make this character memorable. The name sounds infamous and foreboding. Much like her psychopathic actions. The Originals won a place in the madness slot because of her reputation. Then we got to see it live. How fun was that?
Not really fun. Just a whole lot of terror. It leads me to wonder if we’ve got it wrong and Eva is controlling her own body. It would be an annoyingly good twist.
So what did you think of my picks? Share your thoughts!
May the rest of your TV week be just as maddening.
