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 8 – TV Review

Blood & Oil Rats, Bugs and Moles Amber Valletta arrested

“Prison would be more dignified.”

Yes, Blood & Oil is still on.

No, I haven’t missed it while it was briefly away.

Only two episodes left after this one. Let’s grit our teeth and bear it, baby.

Blood & Oil Season 1 Episode 5 – TV Review

Blood & Oil Rocks and Hard Places Cody bashed

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

Considering the utter banality of Blood & Oil, I was considering dumping this weak excuse for a Revenge successor.

But with the recent news that the season order had been cut down to only ten episodes (and, presumably, will be cancelled after that), I’ve decided I’ll keep hanging on.

Blood & Oil Season 1 Episode 4 – TV Review

Blood & Oil The Birthday Party Amber Valletta Don Johnson

I’m onto you, ABC.

No chair is safe.

So after last week’s soap operatic lull, we’re back to furious, breakneck speed.

And Chace has retained his outrageous spending habits.

Seriously, where is this show going to go? They’ve blown their wad every episode so far.

It needs some time to rest or it’ll get friction burns. Jesus.

Blood & Oil Season 1 Episode 2 – TV Review

Blood & Oil Amber Valletta Carla wine

She’ll do it, I tell you.

Well, after the destructively fast pace of last week’s premiere, it’s time for Blood & Oil to grow up and become a proper ABC primetime soap.

So get ready for arbitrary additional characters, poor communication between our leads, and a break-neck drop in speed.

At least Revenge had the revenge-of-the-week thing to keep it moving.

Blood & Oil Season 1 Episode 1 – TV Review

Blood & Oil Pilot Chace Crawford shirtless

That’s a hard, toned act to follow.

With the sad, but necessary, cancellation of Revenge, I need a new “rich people doing bad things” soap opera to satisfy me.

So Blood & Oil is exactly what I’m looking for.
