The Vampire Diaries Season 8 Episode 11 – TV Review

TVD You Made a Choice to be Good Stefan kills Enzo

You know the rest.

Stefan/Damon does something heinous because of mind control. There’s your synopsis.

It must be another episode of TVD Season 8.

Riverdale Season 1 Episode 1 – TV Review

Riverdale The River's Edge Archie shirtless

Even by CW standards, this is ridiculous.

Riverdale answers the question: What would Gossip Girl look like if it were set in Mystic Falls?

It would look pretty fuckin’ good.

The Vampire Diaries Season 8 Episode 10 – TV Review

TVD Nostalgia's a Bitch Cade

That’s what happens when you smoke Sirens.

Somewhere amongst all this “magic does what we say it does,” telepathic mind journey, forced life-or-death situation bullshit this episode, I’m sure there’s an invested, personal story that’s driven by our main characters somewhere.

Sadly, that story is the twenty millionth retread of Stefan and Damon’s “I hate you/me for turning you/me into a vampire” whinge.

Only six episodes to go, everyone. Let’s slog it out.

The Vampire Diaries Season 8 Episode 9 – TV Review

TVD The Simple Intimacy of the Near Touch Sybil Miss Mystic Falls

This episode is as confused as this terrible attempt at a caption.

The Vampire Diaries Season 8 Episode 8 – TV Review

TVD We Have History Together Alexandra Chando

For the second season in a row? Oh, Rayna.

At least Alexandra Chando’s young doctor doesn’t tease us with the possibility of becoming an actual character, like Rayna did.

Thanks, Season 8.

The Vampire Diaries Season 8 Episode 7 – TV Review

TVD The Next Time I Hurt Somebody It Could Be You Caroline drinking

Is this not appropriate weeknight behaviour?

Well, the fucking twins are still around.

And TVD pulls a plot point that it already used five seasons ago.

I don’t know if even Katherine’s return could save things at this point.

The Vampire Diaries Season 8 Episode 6 – TV Review

TVD Detoured on Some Random Backwards Path to Hell Damon dead

Damon’s off to Hell. Again.

You’d think Damon’s staking would be a bit more climactic.

Too bad it’s mired in flawed logic and needless melodrama.

Welcome to TVD Season 8: The Death Throes.
