I am back! It’s only been 3 weeks into the new season and I already miss my old job where I could write reviews on a weekly basis. It will be a bit easier now that Mr.Mercedes and Liar ended this week.

Congrats to Big Little Lies and The Handmaid’s Tale on all their success at Emmys! And to Sterling Brown for being recognised for his work as Randall on This is Us.
Congrats to Hollywood Darlings on being renewed for season 2! It’s my great guilty pleasure of 2017 and I mostly love it for how much Christine Lakin swears in it. I always find it unnatural how no one is ever aloud to swear on TV (thank God for Showtime) considering half of the words I say in a day are curse words.

SVU 19.02

The smartest and most valuable show is back! The girl they chose to play the victim ruined this episode for me. Her acting sucked and I’ve never seen anyone act badly on this show before. This was new and disstressing. I have mixed feelings about Brian Cassidy returning to ruin Olivia’s life just because he’s still in love with her and never wanted her to adopt a child. He shows up 3 years later and tries to take the child away from her? Shouldn’t he have moved on with his life already?

We’re being played, Liv.
God knows I trust your instincts.
A lot of kids grow up in foster care and a lot of kids have crappy lives.
They stop seeing themselves as victims, so they stop being victims.
He kissed her before she used the inhaler.
You never really look at their faces.
He said there’d never be an investigation if it wasn’t for Brian Cassidy.
Probably a singing lesson.
Would you stop you’re getting crambs everywhere.

Greys 14.01

Drop everything cause Teddy is back!

10/10

Greys 14.02

That Meredith sleeping with George reference! I always shipped Owen with Teddy and was hoping he would leave Cristina for her. Here I was thinking Arizona’s new girlfriend is perfect for her and then we learned her profession. Every episode since has been about female orgasm.

10/10

Greys 14.03

Every impulsive decision Amelia has made has been because of cancer? And she didn’t get tested for brain tumor when her child was born without one back on Private Practice 5 years ago? They’ve mentioned Richard’s brain tumor from season 1!! and Nicole Hermann!

Meredith’s psychiatrist from 2 or 3 seasons back is now a patient.

I’m a psychiatrist. I work upstairs.
It’s nice to see you, Meredith.
You’re not of sound mind and you haven’t been in years.
I hope you’ve cleared your schedule.
Who’s Nicole Hermann?
What about Meredith and Maggie?
Is Nathan in love with you?
Years ago I had a brain tumor and Derek removed it.
You’re a bigger mess than I am.
If you coukd have a scalpel in your hand at the end of your life, would you?
I’ve checked your mortality rates when you arrived at Grey Sloan. It’s a 0.9%. Derek’s was 1.3%.
Yours is better than his and he didn’t have a brain tumor.
I was proposed to with a flash mob.
This is my brain.
I have a 10cm tumor in my left frontal lobe.
Maggie, don’t cry.
Owen and Meredith don’t know either.
I’m gonna need your help telling Owen.
And you are gonna have to tell Meredith, because I can’t do it. She’s been telling me I’m crazy for years and this kind of makes me. Kind of makes her right and I hate that.

10/10

Greys 14.04

I am still extremely upset that they haven’t had Tyne Daly back on the show since season freaking 5, even though Derek and Meredith got married, Derek died, Amelia got married and there were tons of ocasions she should have been a part of. They keep saying ‘nah it’s cool don’t call my mom’ at least once a season.

10/10

The Middle 9.02

I’m a school bus driver.
It turned into a whole different colour when I cleaned it.
Welcome to statistics 204.
Mom’s not aloud to come.
And the Freshmans are all taller than me.

4.5/10

How to Get Away With Murder 4.01

She even fired Bonnie?! I am honestly not interested in getting to know Laurel’s family and what happened to her family.

10/10

How to Get Away With Murder 4.02

This was an exceptional episode. I loved how Annalise defended her prison friend (Rose from Lost), but what happened in 4.03 ruined this for me. I can’t decided whether Analise’s or Jasmine’s monologues were better, they were both fantastic.

The luckiest thing that ever happened to me was not being chosen to be a part of her cult. Each of her interns nearly flunk out due to her drama and those are the ones still alive.
You wanna save me? Go back to when I was 13 and my daddy sold my ass to a crook for a couple of bags of smack. You know what they do to a new girl? Strip you naked and take turns. They call it wolf packing, because then you are so broken, they can work you full time. In vans, in basements and only way to get through it is to shoot up and get numb.
You think she’s you.
You mean the sexual abuse that she’d experienced as a child.
And you actually believed that a 13 year old child was making a choice to have sex with grown men for money?
All of these cases are virtually identical to my client’s. Except for one. My client was black and all those girls were white.
Many of the women that I see with addiction issues have been abused often physically, sexually.
If Jasmine were treated like a white girl, she would have been sent to a safe place to eat, sleep, maybe even given an opportunity to go to school.
Because that’s what we do to black people, women and gay people in this world. We turn a blind eye and tell them that their lives don’t matter. But they do matter.
You will be eligible for assistance and job without disclosing your criminal history.
It’s as much of a fresh start as the law will allow. The one you should have been given in 1968.
It’s the firm that represents my father.
Because he killed Wes. My father killed Wes and you’re gonna help me take him down.

10/10

This is Us 2.01

I have yet to watch episodes 2 and 3, but the ending of this one had me devastated. This is a major spoiler so scroll down if you haven’t seen it. On my way to London the other day, I saw the wreckage of the Grenfell Tower from the bus and it left me uneasy knowing the tower will probably haunt visitors for many upcoming months. The Grenfell tragedy left a huge emotional impact on the UK population, but seeing the wreckage with my own eyes made it painfully real. If you watched the episode you know why I found Jack’s death devastating, as burning alive may be one of the most awful ways to go. The episode was not perfect, but the last 60 seconds certainly were, with teenage Kate telling Randall she should be the one to tell Kevin about their father’s death.

He should hear this from me.

6/10

American Horror Story 7.01

I was enjoying this season…for the first 3 episodes, now I know better. This is even weaker than Hotel and Ranoake. And I am happy there’s no Lady Gaga this season.

10/10

American Horror Story 7.02

Someone cutting the wires, random ice cream truck, Audrey freaking out, Audrey telling her son to take his glasses before escaping from the house and all the clowns already had me hooked at that point. Now I know they’re just a bunch of stupid, childish and angry kids and despise Evan’s character and the entire Cult.

Is she okay?
We don’t scare easily.
Did she tell you I was the one that killed him?
Lesbians!

6/10

American Horror Story 7.03

I was upset when my DVR deleted it out of the blue after only 3 watches. This episode is gold. I know there won’t be a better one this season.

10/10

American Horror Story 7.04

Emma Roberts has been brought back this season, for only one fucking episode. Wtf?!

3/10

American Horror Story 7.05

I was so glad the Hotel maid was back and then she got killed off as quickly as Emma Roberts.

You used the word cult.
There’s a cult in this city. They’re the ones responsible for all the murders.
He’s like a modern day Charles Manson.
Are you saying you believe me?

8/10

The Goldbergs 5.02

This may as well be 5.03 I’ll check later.

Any film student who spent a large part of their childhood running around with their camera, plotting film scenarios, scripts and scenes in their head will surely feel nothing but comfort when they see Adam being once again told to ‘keep making movies’. The beloved voiceover responded ‘And I did.’ This sort of the quite common now The Goldbergs thing always leaves me teary eyed.

Well that content was shockingly simple but wow, you have a video camera!
Don’t be this guy!
That’s a worrying cautionary tale.
As you know I have a video camera.
I think we all know how that held you back socially.
Indeed.
Yes, thanks and what the fuck is this movie.
I suggest you keep making more.
And I did.

3.5/10

Scandal 7.01

QPA? What is this a babysitting service?
He’s a spy. That’s what you do to spies that get caught.
Brought you a hand sanitizer.
It’s four years during which every high school freshman in this country won’t work as hard as they might if they believed their government gave a damn about them. Four years of high school graduates moving into low skill jobs because they can’t afford to take on student loans.
Do what I say and you’ll become a monument.
Which one do you want to be?
A monument. I want to be a monument.

7/10

Liar 1.01

One long SVU episode, starring Joanne Froggatt (who’s Downton Abbey character Anna Bates was also a rape survivor) and I’m just really happy this was made.

How badly does he need to hurt me for you to call it rape?
He swaped the glasses!
Are you saying he drugged you?
He is a rapist.
244 likes.
I’ve posted it to his page.

10/10

Liar 1.02

4000 shares.
This is my life.
And this my body.
It’s 10 000 already.
He deserved it. She looks like a slut.
85 000 of women a year raped in the UK.
5.7% of cases reported end with a conviction.
What are you watching?
Excuse me I’m not feeling well.

5/10

Liar 1.03

I was a headmaster.
That’s what happens when everybody thinks your dad is a rapist.
You’re pregnant?
You’re just a predator.
I would tell you that I don’t drink with men who rape women.
I’ sorry we let you down.

4/10

Liar 1.04

And he raped me.
I thought I was drunk.
It felt like it happened to someone else.
He said it was my idea and I believed him.
I feel like I’m broken.
He’s done it twice, who knows how many more.
Suddenly you don’t know what’s important anymore. You’re wondering why you bother to get up in the morning, get dressed and do the same old thing day in and day out.
I’ve changed and I don’t know how to change back.
Maybe you don’t have to. Maybe you just have to learn who you are now.
You don’t get to do this to me twice.
You raped me.
I just nought GHB.

8/10

Liar 1.05

Looks like some sort of a bruise. A few actually.
I want you to test me for GHB.
You won’t get away with what you did to me.
You raped me.

Absentia 1.01

Stana Katic has a new TV Series! The pilot was great, shame the next two episodes weren’t.

You’ve been gone 6 years.

10/10

Absentia 1.02

This sucked more or less.

2/10

Absentia 1.03

Did you see how her son was thrown and hit his head! Woah this was too brutal for television and left me in a state of shock. The show isn’t that interesting, but let’s be honest, I have and will watch anything with Stana Katic.

3/10

Gifted 1.01

Not too good even for a teen show, but I’ll stick with it.

4/10

Gifted 1.02

Okay that was really bad.

1/10

SEAL Team 1.01

That was boring. I knew I should have started The Last Ship instead of this. I’m not sure I will watch more as not even David Boreanaz and Max Thierot can save it.

This is Us 1.18

Sara Paxton guest stars in this so-so episode.

4.5/10

Hollywood Darlings 1.07

I really hope this gets a second season.

Put your fucking hand down.
How rude.

3.5/10

The Good Fight 1.10

Your dad fled, you’re under arrest.

8.5/10

SVU 18.21

For SVU, it was such a shitty episode.

The next dead woman on the floor, that could be you.

2/10

Nashville 5.12

God bless Nashville for mentioning Daria.

When kids at school treat me like crap for being different, your music gets me through.
Oh my god, Daria! I love that show!
I know about depression.
You can’t push that kind of pain away, you gotta own it, deal with it every day. That’s what people do. They fail each other. So try again. Fail better.

9/10

Handmaid’s Tale 1.01

There’s an eye in your house, be careful.

I guess I need to rewatch 1.02 as the notes I took have gone missing

6.5/10

Handmaid’s Take 1.03

Alexis’s scream at the end and her facial expressions gained her an Emmy nomination and I couldn’t be happier for her!

Why only women?
I will resign my body to the use of others.
She was very pleasant looking.
In what way?
Did she ever touch you?
Did you know she was the gender trader?
You didn’t report it to your mistress?
But you knew what she was?
I knew she was gay.
That satan was an offense to God. She was a disguisting beast.
Because she was my friend.
Don’t! She’s pregnant!
No ice cream for you this month, young lady.
You won’t want what you can’t have.

10/10

The Handmaid’s Tale 1.04

God found a way to make you useful.

5.5/10

The Handmaid’s Tale 1.05

Rory Gilmore ran over some dude in this episode, woah.

Maybe we should skip tonight’s ceremony.
You can’t be sick every month.
Children. What else is there to live for?
Death.

3.5/10

The Handmaid’s Tale 1.06

Second to best episode after that wonderful 1.03 and who would have tjought the husband is alive?!

The children . All brought to you by pur handmaids.
They want to trade us dummy.
They don’t rape you, do they?
And stick his cock up your ass.
They rape me. Once a month.
I didn’t choose this.
They took my daughter.
Don’t be sorry. Please do something.
My country is dying.
My country is already dead.

5/10

The Handmaid’s Tale 1.07

They took my wife and daughter.
Gather them up for fertility reasons.
So she’s alive.

2/10

The Handmaid’s Tale 1.08

Maybe wife should be there for the act.
I will not be that girl in the box.

1.5/10

The Leftovers 3.05

And he shits 4 times a day.
I’m not one of those lunatics.

5.5/10

The Leftovers 3.06

Lorrie finally told Kevin about the baby she lost during the Departure.

I was pregnant, 16 weeks.

7/10

The Leftovers 3.07

Always a pleasure to hear the Beach Boys songs be used on TV shows and it happens more and more often recently! How disturbing was Kevin scanning his dick to get access to that freaking building?

Anyone can have your face, but not your penis.

5/10

The Leftovers 3.08

The series finale was not exactly what I expected, but at least we got some answers. Remember when back in season one Tom and Damien said we’d never learn what happened to the Departured, because the show is about the one who remained on Earth and their grief? Well I guess HBO pressured them for answers and I’m really glad they did. Why would Jill have her first kid in her late 40s though? How old is Kevin supposed to be in the end, late 60s? Goodbye, The Leftovers!

So you’re saying it’s your first time in Australia?
Jill married a great guy and has a daughter almost 1 year old.
How’s your dad?
Good, he’s 91.
I talk to Lorrie sometimes.
I didn’t change my mind. I went through. I walked through M
appletown. At first I didn’t recognise them. A boy, a teenager and a girl, 11 years old. I was aghost who had no place there. And that, Kevin is when I changed my mind. So much time had past. It was too late.

10/10

When We Rise 1.01

It’s shocking how I haven’t caught up on this show yet.

The lesbian thing.
The fact that someone is homosexual automatically rules out the possibility that he’ll remain happy for long.
I’m gay, dad. I’m gay.
It’s an illnes. It can be treated.
San Francisco is where we were told we could find our harbour.
Get your dyke face out of my station.
But I’m not a dyke.
God saves us gays.
I’m not one of them.
Be fabulous.
I’m not that sexual.
I need you to bring all the boys like you.
I worried I was a homosexual when I was 16, for a year.
Have you ever been arrested?
No, but I’m looking forward to it.
You love women, Roma.
Being black isn’t the only thing that is different about me.

10/10

When we Rise 1.02

Something natural. 8 colors.

I want you to be happy. And I don’t think this lifestyle will let you be that.
We’re lesbians. We show up. That’s what we do.
We are the lesbians and gays of San Francisco.
We are going to live.

Younger 4.01

Josh, I know everything.
You broke my heart.

Pretty Little Liars 7.15

I have to do this. Of course you do, that’s what makes you Emily.
Playing with people’s lives is an addiction.

5.5/10

Pretty Little Liars 7.17

I guess some dreams are meant to be just that, dreams.
I want to marry your daughter.
I thought you were ready to leave this town.
I am, just not the people in it.

Pretty Little Liars 7.19

Somebody’s always stealing the game from me.
This is Rosewood, Mona. Not Area 51.
Jump or I’ll push you.
Mona killed Charlotte.
She went into a safe place. Before anything bad happened.
Did you murder Jessica DiLaurentis? Yes.
She did this for you.
That’s what dying feels like.

Gone Baby Gone

It may have something to do with me seeing all 400 episodes of SVU multiple times, but I expected this to be so much better. I never read the book, but It’s scary how much the girl they cast to play Amanda looked like little Madeleine McCann, especially since the film was released only a couple of months after her disappearance.

7.5/10

You Again

This film gets better each time I see it and that is 4 times already. Mostly the Jamie Lee vs Sigourney feud. I’m changing my rating from 2 stars to 3 stars, because it really is that good.

7/10

The Boys are Back

Once a month I come across these beautifully shot low budget Australian dramas that make my life so much fuller. They prove there’s so much beauty around to explore. What I love about them is how well Australian filmmakers play with light and warm colors. I also adore the slow pace of Aussie cinema. All those aspects show exactly what life here is like, a bit slower, definitely more peaceful and so much more beautiful.

7.5/10

Pirates of the Carribean 5: Dead Man Tell No Tales

Definitely better than the 4th one, yet still so far from the first three. For no good reason my favorite franchise ends with my favorite character learning he has a daughter and not long after… dying. Was that really necessary?

6/10

The Wicker Man

At first I didn’t care for it, but that ending certainly caught my attention. I need to see the original right away!

5/10

Serendipity

Definition of romantic comedies. Being a hopeless romantic and blindly believing in fate and luck.

5/10

The Last of Robin Hood

Oh please, I am so over the Lolita thing. Rape followed by statutory rape once again. Entitled men with little girl fetishes are fucking pigs and they should never be glorified.

4/10

Foxcatcher

I’m never into sports films, nor am I into male centred films with no tragic or strong female characters, but I’m glad I stuck till the end. It’s based on a true story and that tale has a quite shocking twist.

5/10

Monsters: Dark Continent

Remember the 2010 one? Beautiful post apocaliptic scenery (based in Mexico near the US border), only two characters, all made sense. Seeing it at the movies made it almost exceptional. I wasn’t sure what I was going into, but I came out satisfied. What was the point of moving Monsters to the Middle East? I mostly fast forwarded to the monster parts and other action scenes, because there is no other way to watch it. Absolutely pointless, don’t watch this one. If you’re into post apocaliptic horror without zombies (I know right? Awesome) watch Monsters from 2010.

Transparent won’t be back till 2018 and Shameless will be back in November, not October, that means I may have a bit more free time in late September/October, so I’m postponing the remaining shows I need to catch up on till then.

Shows I still need to catch up on:

  • When Calls the Heart
  • Feud
  • Transparent
  • When We Rise
  • Shut Eye

SVU 18.18

You can’t rationalise rape.
Were you just trying to reassure her too?
A, what you did wasn’t sex, that’s called rape and B, yes, I really think the jury will believe it.
They’re shaming you into giving up.

8/10

SVU 18.19

One of the best episodes this season and I just adored how accepting Olivia is of the young lesbians. The first quote I’m adding to this review is extremely important. There is nothing more annoying than people thinking sexuality is always fluctuating and even the gayest lesbians or gays can swing both ways if someone asks them nicely enough or charms them into doing so.

She would never let a man have sex with her, she’s a lesbian.
He made me, my virtue is gone.
Because you’re a lesbian.
They’re saying rape is okay if it’s for religious reasons.
Things get better with time.

10/10

SVU 18.20

They did a number on this girl.
It’s a hate crime.
They were doing terrible things to my nieces.
You let those girls get raped.

I make 27$ per supina.
You got me this job.

For a sex crime case, it’s shocking how shitty the episode was.

My client when he was 17 was raped by the pastor.

That Netflix Renewal Problem

Tags

, ,

If you like a Netflix show or you feel you’d like it, you it’s crucial you watch the first two episodes the weekend the show comes out. Netflix checks statistics the following Monday. If you leave it for later, Netflix will take it as the show not being needed enough for people to drop everything and tune in. This is what happened to a few of Netflix shows, including the recent Girlboss.

Check out the new Naomi Watts Netflix series Gypsy. It’s another tv series Netflix has failed to advertise properly and it deserves your attention. I watched it all today and so good and addictive at the same time.

I cannot believe Linda from HR with Lauren Graham and The Get with Amy Brenneman both have not been picked up. Fox and CBS went with shitty shows with actors no one knows. Those two would have sold perfectly. This means this fall I will only start Navy Seals with David Boreanaz and The Good Doctor with Emily VanCamp. That clearly does not feel like enough, considering how many shows we’ve lost.

The Middle 8.23

Neil really does look like Henry Fonda. I’m disappoinedin myself for not figuring it out earlier.

You’re like a young Henry Fonda.
They’re lawyering up.
If you know the owner of this car, please call the police.
That is so freaking Henry Fonda.
Clearly your parents raised your rain.

5/10

The Goldbergs 4.24

Flashback to Barry and Lanie made me tear up.

Extra point from me for Barry eating Hubba Bubba.
Holy crap, she’s the one who keyed Drew’s car.
I promise swwtie, your boobies will grow just like the rest of you.
Stop crying. I can’t have the kids say stupid things.
You’ve raised an amazing young woman, Beverly Goldberg.
God, so much has changed since then.

Riverdale 1.13

Life is not an Agatha Christie novel. It’s a lot messier.
Something wicked this way comes.
The next day I went away and 5 months later your brother was born.
How old would he be?
Mid 20s?
People will look at this as the exact moment that last bit of Riverdale’s innocence finally died. And darkness won. Marked by an act of violence. It was anything but random. Imagine this instant, frozen in time.

He looks like you.
Really.
I was ashamed of what I ahd become.

Greys 12.23

Brooke!? Jo’s name is Brooke?! Is Shonda running out of name ideas, does she not remember there was an intern called Heather Brooks?! Same as with Mer’s sister Maggie and Owen’s sister Megan. It’s the same name for crying out loud! I cried when Alex said his name was Alex Stevens, as in Izzie Stevens! And when Amelia spoke with Teddy! I was upset they didn’t show her, but Kim Raver is coming back! For an episode or 2, most likely the first 2 of the 14th season.

Mayor Hunt.
They said that she’s alive.
They found her in the basment.
Ask for Dr. Teddy Altman.
She said that she tried to call you.
Owen, Teddy knows her. Teddy saw her.
I went on with my life. For alost 10 years. I stoped looking, I gave up. I gave up on her.
He made me drive to the woods. He wanted to rape me.
Stephanie’s with him.
Because a rapist’s in the hospital.
I left her in the room with him.

SVU 18.17

We all felt sick when they attacked Liv and Amanda’s children.

I’m number 622 on the list. I didn’t get the perfect score.
Both are fatherless babies of unknown origin.
Arrest that son of a bitch who ran that thing.
He make us do the sex.
We come to America for work, not the sex.
What kind of jobs did they think they would get in America?
Nannies.

The Middle 8.22

Sue summed up this year, with exactly what we were thinking. The last two years were uneventful, and I miss the high school years every day. Remember when sue had no chill and couldn’t make anything of herself and she was always cheerful? Yes, those where the days.

This year I look back and it just feels like the year was kind of ‘Meh’.
Frankie, why are we getting HBO?
I wonder if we’re getting Hallmark movies!
Cindy just came back from her doctor, he believes she stopped growing!
The universe is confusing us with the Donaghues!
Whenever had 3 ggoo things happened to us on one day?
Or one?
My name is Sue Heck, class of 2015.
Sorry humiliation, you’ve been postponed to a later date.

Scandal 6.13

I really wished Scandal would go all Seven on us and deliver someone’s head, but they opted out last minute. The box plot was intriguing nonetheless.

Drones. 9 drones.
There’s been an explosion in Dallas.
35 Americans dead.
Sir, the drones are moving.
The Philadephia drone detonated.
I don’t get it, is the box empty?
A brick Why woud Payes send my father a brick?
It’s the weight. Every box weighed 11 Ibs.
And your sex Scandal.
No one has ever broken you.
A severed head weighes from 9lbs to 11 lbs.
That head would be Olivia’s.
I could speak 8 languages.
Olivia is what you’re best at. She’s your republic. She’s your legacy.

Nashville 5.14

Let’s be honest Nashville post Rayna is no good.I’m happy when they sing, but the storylines are predictable and lack essence. This week, there I was thinking Maddie has actually made it and they went with the obvious storyline of everyone wanting to know how will she fit into her mother’s shoes.

I don’t want  to be stuck behind Miranda and Carrie and Kelsey I need a hit!
She’s back!
Bucky, thank you for everything.
They’re playing my song on the radio!!
That’s the best we can do?!
And we’ve never even had sex.

Greys 13.22

Meredith giving away the tumor Derek drew for her so she can fuck her boyfriend in peace is appaling, and I like those two together. Parents don’t want their kid to have surgery because of their strong faith in God. Stephanie gets suspended for throwing a tablet at the dad.

As someone who’s been around a lot of death and been left behind by it, I can tell you, trust me, you don’t want that.
You can go to jail again.
I can go to jail for this.
Don’t let it hold you back. No more sitting here and waiting. Grab your new life by the hand and go out there and live it. Change is good.

Nashville 5.13

How did Deacon not think Maddie self harmed?! All the freaking songs this episode! Absolutely spectacular! Maddie’s reendition of the Daria theme! Avery’s song ! And the Exes too! The homeless girl crying at the photo of Rayna with her Deacon and the girls!

I feel so alone,  keep heading home!
Or the foster drunks who never understood no means no.
Cause you’re coming home with me.
I love you even when I don’t.
Where’s your real dad?
In jail.
What about your mom?
She died.
Do you mind me asking how old are you?
15.
You can stay.
I’ll be fine.
Just know I’ll be there.
I’m on my way.

Riverdale 1.12

This is the episode where Madchen reinvented herself! She was absolutely fabulous in it! I am ready for Twin Peaks return. Shelly was my favorite in the original one. The scene where theCoopers walzed in was my second favorite this season.

I’m a Blossom?!
Which makes her and Jason relatives by blood.
Don’t bother calling the cops, we’re not staying.
Sorry to disturb the witching hourat Thornehill.
She chose to live here remember, with the mentally stable family.
Oh I know all about your family, Penelope and the incest.
Nothing could be more purely Blossom than those babies.
Enough of this Dr Moreau experimentation in breeding and eugenics! It’s over!
There it is. Maybe syrup. Drown in it, why don’t you!
Nancy Drew strikes again.
You did a bad thing daddy, and now everyone knows.
And then the unthinkable happened.

Pretty Little Liars 7.14

Lucas is definitely A.D. He has always been a stalker, and I have been suspicious of him since season two or something. The song Devil Devil by Milck is so freaking good.

Luke, Lucas maybe.
You know him?
You’re sitting on his couch.
I remember the procedure.
I want to cancel my appointment.
No one can know how ciolated and used you must feel.
It’s supposed to kand on Aria!

Pretty Little Liars 7.18

It pissed me off when Hanna said ‘Childhood’ teddy bear, that’s why I hate season 7 so much, they all think they’re so grown up and shit. How many times do I have to say this! Alison is not gay and never will be!

I think she’s on the A.D. team.
I just received proof that yu were not in town at the time of the murder.
I’ll tell you what we should do.
Why didn’t we do that earlier?
I hope you enjoyed the game, Aria. I know I have.
It’s Mona, signal is coming from inside the apartment.

Girlboss 1.01

Crying because of work, relatable. The thing she did where she lied to the person on the phone saying there was an ambulance passing by, so she could cry was incredible. So was the scene where she tried to push her car up the road on a gorgeous San Francisco street? Incredible! I just realizedthis year we got 3 shows based in San Francisco, Girlboss, When We Rise and Fuller House of course.

How old are you?
23.
Did I eat her sandwich? Yeah.
Can you hold on a second, there’s an ambulance next to me.
Bring on adulthood, motherfucker.

Why the hell did they think it’s appropriate for Lily to have a bra at 9 years old?

I like his energy. He doesn’t have any.
Hey where do I park?
Between two lines.
My make-up was not insured.
