Catching up on Fall TV . . .

As always I keep meaning to post more, I’ve just been stressed, overworked, and have some personal issues going on. But let’s get to some quick thoughts on TV!

“American Horror Story” is so bizarre, but I love it. I just can’t figure half of it out, but each show reveals just a little bit more. I wish we’d get more focus on the Ten Commandments killer, and it looks like we may with the upcoming Halloween episodes.

I’m still enjoying “Castle,” I just don’t know how much longer the show can go on. The mysteries are still fresh, but the Rick and Kate drama is getting old.

I’m so glad Paula went home on “DWTS.” That Vogue routine was the worst! She just stood there and waved a fan. WTF?

“Gotham” is getting really good with the war between the Galavan family and the Waynes, and their history having been explained. Very interesting! I also can’t wait for “Supergirl” which begins tomorrow.

I like that they brought in Derek’s “killer” on “Grey’s Anatomy.” This should be really interesting. I’m glad Meredith told Amelia off. I always liked the character until recently when she became all about herself. Me me me! Thank you Meredith for telling her to shut the hell up as she wasn’t the only one who lost Derek.

Honestly I have not watched anymore of “Heroes Reborn” since the 2 hour pilot. It was slow and bored me. I have the episodes on my DVR to play catch-up on still.

I’m so loving “Nashville.” It’s one of the top shows I look forward to every week. I loved Rayna and Layla bonding this past week. Jeff needs to go! He is a sleaze! I’m glad to see him on the show more and that he hasn’t left due to “Scream Queens.” Juliette is about to take a leave of absence from the show, and it seems they are setting her up to go to the crazy house for a bit. She definitely needs to get some help. I still want more focus on Will.

“Once Upon A Time” has been amazing this season. I love the twist that Arthur is evil. As I write this I haven’t watched tonight’s episode, but will shortly.

“Scream Queens” is amazing as always. It seems the one older returned Kappa Kappa Kappa member is one of the killers, but who is the other she is working with? Why do I feel she has a connection to the woman who died giving birth to Grace, and is that woman is Grace’s mother? Abigail Breslin’s “Chanel” mentioned she was a legacy and had to be taken in, so I’m thinking she’s connected to the dead mother via her own mother.

“Sleepy Hollow” has been enjoyable, but I’m starting to wonder if we are going to have a new main villain every season from here on out given this whole trial of the witnesses.

“The Flash” has been great, and I love the addition of Teddy Sears as alternate Earth Flash. Can we keep him around, as he is so good looking! It looks like from the previews that Firestorm is going to be reborn, but I want the original actor back in the role of Ronnie Raymond! It seems the actor moved on to the new “X-Files” though and had to be recast, or in this case killed and the character re-worked. Boo!

Mid-Week Thoughts: Fall Week 3 – Horror Story and More!

Mid-Week Thoughts: Fall Week 3 – Horror Story and More!

Posted by Dustin on 10.08.2015 at 6:53 pm

“American Horror Story Hotel” finally made its debut last night. For most of it I sat there thinking “What in the hell is going on?” It was stunningly beautiful, but confusing as hell. The last fifteen minutes really pulled almost everything together. Gaga and Boomer are vampires, living in the hotel, with a bunch of other freaks basically. I haven’t figured out Sarah Paulson’s character Sally yet. She was definitely killed by Kathy Bates, because Sally lured her son (Boomer) to the hotel and he overdosed on her drugs. For revenge she pushed Sally out a window, but then Gaga appeared and made Boomer her vampire lover. However Sally is still around. Is she a ghost? A vampire too? Or is she part of this weird butt-raping Addiction Demon? Of course Wes Bentley’s missing kid is also in the hotel, one of these weird vampire children of Gaga’s?

I’m still loving “Scream Queens,” mainly because of the insanely un-PC things said on it by Chanel. However I like the mystery involving the Red Devil’s identity and how it connects with the baby born 20 years ago in the Kappa house. I adored Lea Michelle this week, who played a character the complete opposite of Rachel Berry.

“Gotham” has been great, but I’m so bummed they killed the Joker figure. What the hell! He was the best thing going for this new season, and now he’s dead.

“The Flash” returned and introduced this season’s new villain pretty quickly in Zoom, another speedster nemesis of Barry Allen’s. I’m annoyed that they killed half of Firestar, but given he’s supposed to be part of a new spinoff show, I don’t think Ronny is as dead as we’ve been lead to believe.

“Once” was again good this week. I am dying to know what happened in Camelot that seems to have turned Emma against everyone and forced her to embrace her dark side. I’m loving seeing Regina get to finally be the hero, and the Charmings standing by her.

I finally started “Heroes Reborn” and so far am finding it a tad slow. I’m not yet sure where it’s going, and I have yet to reach the point of Hiro and Parkman’s introduction back into the show. I’m peeved that they killed Claire! I know she’s on another show, but totally un-necessary!

Speaking of Claire, over on “Nashville” her new alter-ego Juliette continues to spiral totally out of control. I love that Avery is finally ditching her. I kept worrying something might happen between Luke and Juliette, but fortunately it didn’t. It seems Teddy is in fact going to be off the show for awhile as he gets himself redeemed in prison. Watching Scarlet have to take her mom of life support was heartbreaking, but I’m so happy it was Gunnar she turned to. She needs to ditch the boring doc and get back with Gunnar.

Fall 2015 Weekly Update: Week 2ish . . .

Fall 2015 Weekly Update: Week 2ish . . .

Posted by Dustin on 10.04.2015 at 5:37 pm

So this is another week-of-shows-in-one post. I’ve been very busy lately, and hope to eventually get back to more individualistic show-by-show posts, but this is the easiest way for me to do this right now and not fall behind. Oh, and I’m already behind! I still haven’t caught up on “Heroes Reborn,” and I’m 2/3 of the way through season one of “How To Get Away With Murder.” For those asking about “Scandal,” I kept trying to like that show but never got into it. Maybe next summer I’ll binge watch it!

This week “American Horror Story: Hotel” debuts, along with the return of “Grim.” I’m looking forward to both!

I never commented on the end of “Big Brother 17” or “Under the Dome,” because frankly both sucked. I actually stopped watching “Big Brother,” worst season and cast ever! As for “Under The Dome,” just what the hell? Clearly they were still hopeful for another season, but given the whole alien invasion crap, I don’t know why. What a way to blow what was a good show.

Onto “Castle,” I’m glad they quickly resolved this secret agent Beckett storyline, but with her as Captain now I wonder how involved she will be with the day to day cases. It will definitely be interesting to see where they go with things this season.

“Gotham” has been getting better and better. I love the villains, and am wondering what or who Barbara will become. It almost seems they are setting her up to be Harley Quinn. I love that they’ve brought Lucious Fox in to help Bruce become Batman, along with Alfred.

“Grey’s” was just okay this week. I like seeing more of Miranda, but I just don’t know where they will take things this year. Amelia and Owen are great, but they aren’t the new MerDer. I also am glad that Jackson is not just taking April back after the crap she’s been pulling.

I have to wonder how long before Rayna signs her kids to her label on “Nashville,” as it seems they could help save it for her. Watching Juliette spiral out of control is terribly fun, and I can’t believe Luke dropped Will like that. For shame!

I really enjoyed the season premiere of “Once,” especially the reversal of roles with Emma and Regina. However, another fricken missing time/memories curse? Come on! There are only so many times that stuff can be done.

I have been watching “Project Runway,” I just had forgotten to comment on it. Its pretty obvious Edmund, Ashley and Candice will be the final three, unless something insane happens.

“Scream Queens” is still my favorite show of the season so far, likely because of the newness of it. I loved the transformation of Leah Michelle’s character into Channel #6. I still am lost on who the killer is, other than it seems there are two, and Nick Jonas character is working with the original.

“Sleepy Hollow” returned this week, and I for one am glad the Henry/Katrina arch has ended. That was becoming tedious, and frankly standing in the way of any romance between Ichabod and Mills. Though that won’t happen soon, as it’s usually the death of these types of shows. I do like that they’ve been able to craft a whole new storyline for them as witnesses.
