The Originals Season 5 Episode 13 – TV Review

The Originals When the Saints Go Marching In Camille cameo

Come for the Camille, stay for the bizarre slap in the face to fans that this pathetic excuse for a series finale turns out to be.

Much like last episode, I would be hesitant to call this episode, and series finale, a trainwreck. Because trainwrecks are actually exciting.

If I had to distill The Originals series finale down to one word (and this is the Internet, baby. Distilling complex ideas into clickbaity, list format is the name of the game), it would be “meh.”

And “meh” is not how I want to feel about the finale of what once was the best vampire soap opera on the CW.

Even the TVD finale wasn’t meh (it wasn’t good, either. But you know).

It makes me wonder how much of a garbage dump the Legacies finale will be. And by “finale,” I mean at the end of the first season. Do you really think that it’ll be renewed?

Once Upon a Time Season 7 Episode 22 – TV Review

OUaT Leaving Storybrooke Regina Robin

Well, to be fair, Regina is the one that got me. Bitch.

It’s finally over. And for all my venom and bluster against this show over the years, there will be no gravedancing like there was with PLL.

Sure, even right to the very end this episode is full of plot contrivances and last minute twists that come out of nowhere. But amid all that, Once Upon a Time, much like it has for almost its entire run, found the one true thing within it all:

Regina.

Pretty Little Liars Season 7 Episode 20 – TV Review

PLL Til Death Do Us Part Drunk Mum Initiative

I, however, made the grave mistake of watching it stone cold sober.
I have regrets.

There are only three possible explanations for how Pretty Little Liars turned out:

1) I. Marlene King is clinically insane;

2) I. Marlene King is the greatest troll of the decade; or

3) I. Marlene King is just an incompetent, egomaniacal dickhead.

Don’t you wish it was anything but number 3? Sigh.

Bates Motel Season 5 Episode 10 – TV Review

I won’t hyperbolise and tell you that this is the most gut-wrenching, tear-jerking, ethereal, gift-from-the-Gods finale in history. Because it’s not.

But even when Vera Farmiga was literally inhaling the scenery, Bates Motel wasn’t about being the biggest.

No. Bates Motel dies as it lived. True. And confident. And honest.

It was worth the wait.

Revenge Season 4 Episode 23 – TV Review

Revenge Two Graves Emily gun

Oof, Em. So close with the word choice, there.

Yes, finale week is kicking off. Once Upon a Time’s was cute enough, but there’s nothing like the series finale conclusion to four years of soap operatic revenge.

Could have been a bit more operatic, though.

Glee Season 6 Episodes 12 and 13 – TV Review

Glee 2009 series finale Don't Stop Believin'

…that Glee is dead and we’re finally free.

Yes, baby. We finally made it.

We made it to the end of Glee.

But Glee isn’t ready to leave without one last glory-reliving grab at the spotlight.

I’ll allow it.
