Blood & Oil Season 1 Episode 10 – TV Review

Blood & Oil Departures Amber Don finale

It’s what we all wanted. For Amber, at least.

Blood & Oil’s over, and nobody will cry for it.

At least they got to wrap everyone’s subplots up.

However unearned and improbable those wrap-ups may be.

Blood & Oil Season 1 Episode 9 – TV Review

Blood & Oil The Art of the Deal Amber

Resigned exhaustion.

With only one episode left to limp through after this one, it’s time to bring back that one issue that a soap of this low calibre should really stay away from: Native American race relations.

Blood & Oil Rocks and Hard Places Cody bashed

And, if we’re lucky, a fix to that little pregnancy problem.

Blood & Oil Season 1 Episode 4 – TV Review

Blood & Oil The Birthday Party Amber Valletta Don Johnson

I’m onto you, ABC.

Yes. Much like Regina in this week’s Once Upon a Time, Amber Valletta is getting sidelined to make way for yet more insane business decisions from Chace.
