Legacies Season 1 Episode 1 – TV Review

Legacies This is the Part Where You Run Hope

You can’t sit with us, Hope.

Goddamn, CW. Do I have to watch another pilot episode about fledgling witches?

And oof, what a bad choice to come out with your teen supernatural creatures show at the same time as Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

The CW ain’t got that Netflix money, honey.

Charmed Season 1 Episode 1 – TV Review

And no, I’m not going to harp on with “b-b-b-but the original.”

Because since when is Charmed fucking sacred?

Heathers Season 1 Episode 1 – TV Review

Heathers Heather Chandler Nazi hat

Oh, honey. You think that’s cringe? You’re not even ready.

Yes, we saw the pilot come out several months ago, and I, too, watched it at that time.

I was waiting for the series to start in earnest, but that sadly never came to be. Because of, you know, horrible reality.

However, thanks to the magic of the Internet and spotty international distribution deals, here we are. I’ll be doing the whole season.

Let the glorious disaster begin.

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.

Scream Queens Season 1 Episodes 1 and 2 – TV Review

Scream Queens pilot Abigail Breslin Keke Palmer

They must be watching Scream Queens.

I had my misgivings about this. I really did. Those first trailers looked like over-stylised, Dutch angle-fucked, substance-less trash.

But still, for some reason I can’t even pin down, I expected Scream Queens to be decent.

Didn’t I learn anything from Glee and seasons 3 and 4 of American Horror Story?

Scream Season 1 Episode 1 – TV Review

Scream Pilot Bella Thorne death

Oh, honey. No.

I reckon “Oh, honey. No” will be a recurring theme when it comes to MTV’s Scream television adaptation.

As I’ve mentioned a couple of times before, Scream is one of my Sacred Three: my favourite three movies of all time (Jurassic Park and Jawbreaker being the other two). I didn’t have high hopes for this version, and those hopes were not bolstered by the appalling (and, mercifully, cancelled) Eye Candy.

Well, Scream’s better than Eye Candy.

But not by much.
