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.

Well, if you’re gonna die without dignity, then why not really shit up the place, hey?

Blood & Oil Season 1 Episode 7 – TV Review

Blood & Oil Fight or Flight Petyon Chace charity gala dress

But damn, it looks pretty.

Psycho Partner is still alive.

Amber’s back on the bench.

Cody gets significant screentime.

It’s like Blood & Oil is purposely not delivering.

Blood & Oil Season 1 Episode 6 – TV Review

Gosh, I’m glad the announcement of Blood & Oil’s season order reduction (and presumable cancellation) came out last week, or else I would be ditching this wasted opportunity of a show.

But, after this episode, there are only four left.

Amber takes a first tentative step off the bench this week. Let’s keep that momentum going.

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.

Maybe they’ll finally unleash Amber Valletta before the season is up?

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.

My enduring adoration for Lydia from Revenge is pretty much the only thing keeping me on the line, Blood & Oil. You need to put Amber on the fucking field, already.

Blood & Oil Season 1 Episode 3 – TV Review

Blood & Oil Amber Valletta red wine

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.

TV Review: Once Upon a Time Season 2 Episode 22

Once Upon a Time Regina Season 2 finale

That’s just how she do.

So, like, I forgot that this week’s episode was the season finale.

I’m not ready for Once Upon a Time to go away.

Oh, and apparently, neither were the writers.

TV Review: Once Upon a Time Season 2 Episode 19

Once Upon a Time Regina magic bean

“Henry HATES eating his greens.”

Why would they make us wait so many weeks between episodes of Once Upon a Time?

Like, seriously, ABC.

You can pull that crap with Shit-venge, but don’t go messin’ with mah Regina time.

Bitch.
