Veronica Mars Season 4 – Season Review

I had all this time to prepare something meaningful and insightful to start off this post, but this is still all I can think about.

I had hesitated to write this post. After more than a decade since Veronica Mars became my favourite TV show of all time (sorry, 30 Rock), she’s back, bitches. And she knows everything.

But would I have anything valuable to say?

Nah, not really, it turns out. And that’s a good thing. Also, I’m not usually one to be squeamish about spoilers, but here’s your warning.

Scream Season 3 – Season Review

Why did you do this to us, Queen Latifah?

Should I bother calling it Scream: Resurrection?

Should I bother calling it anything other than the trash it is?

It’s bad, baby. Real bad.

Game of Thrones Season 7 – Season Review

Game of Thrones Season 7 Jon Daenery sex scene

Come on, man. Her tits aren’t even in the frame.

Yes, I’m still here.

But Game of Thrones isn’t, coming in short at seven episodes for the season.

And for once, I actually miss it.

Game of Thrones Season 6 Rickon death

A blog post that’s unnecessary? Absurd.

It was a pretty good season. But you don’t need me to tell you that.

Game of Thrones Season 5 – Season Review

Game of Thrones Season 5 Daenerys Tyrion drink

A seven episode-long slog, to be precise.

I didn’t have any grand epiphanies about Game of Thrones this year.

Even more than season 4, season 5 felt like just another brick in the wall for what is supposed to be the world’s premier wow factor TV series.

Which means it’s becoming more like its network television lessers.

Which means I like it more now.

Game of Thrones Season 4 – Season Review

Game of Thrones Daenerys penis wine

A little bit drunk and with the prospect of something that might actually be satisfying after.

I’ve whinged a lot about Game of Thrones’ soap operatics before.

But I had an epiphany this season: Game of Thrones is exactly that. It’s a soap opera.

Yes, it’s a soap opera with a fabulous budget and the occasional decapitation.

But watching GoT and expecting a soap opera, as opposed to expecting it to be this epic, magical experience that so many fans seem to believe, makes everything much more satisfying.

It’s like Revenge. If Revenge only had 10 episodes per season, 30 more characters, and no clear direction.

So I guess not much like Revenge, then.

Grimm Season 3 – Season Review

Grimm Season 3 Nick David Giuntoli shirtless

This is what Grimm needs more of.

It’s a shame that my memory of season 3 is mostly coloured by the end of it.

And that spells trubel.

Yes. “Trubel.”
