I am so ready for the fall season to start. I hope I will be able to mourn Dexter but still get excited about other shows. I have made my peace with The Big C ending and Cathy dying. I still haven’t seen the finale of Private Practice, I’m still too fragile to say goodbye. I am waiting for some special occasion, but yesterday was my 20th birthday and the finale was right there on my dvr and I chose to watch earlier episodes of the season instead. I’m starting to think I’ll never be ready. I just think It needs to be a special day, and I simply haven’t had one since January. I miss Addie and Violet and seeing Kate and Amy on my screen. I hate that so many of my shows are ending, like I haven’t had enough changes. I have said goodbye to The Big C, I still haven’t recovered from The Killing cancelletion. I truly don’t feel like starting a new show. There are too many changes and disappointments in my life right now. Private Practice, The Big C ended. Dexter ends in 2 days. Go On, not the best, but my favorite new show of the fall 2012 got cancelled. The Killing, a great show that I have started watching less than 2 months ago got cancelled. Camp, a cute and fun summer show won’t probably make it and a half of the shows I watch don’t come back till January. I was desperate to find a new show to fill this empty space and started watching shows I promised I never would and there are only two shows still on air that I love unconditionally and never fail to surprise me. And I hate that. I hate changes, feeling like I’ve failed at life and have no purpose and most of all, I hate being an adult.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted something film or tv related and worth reading at the same time. My uni semester ended and I finally can afford quick Internet, which means I can go back to watching all the films and tv that I want. I have missed it badly. Seeing only 30 films in 6 months is humiliating at least. I was thinking of starting a new show and the ones that interested me are: The Following, Hannibal, House of Cards and Switched at Birth. I am also checking out The Bridge, but it is too soon to tell at this moment. This week I will update whatever I remember seeing these past five months and will try to rewatch all the episodes of the last season that I didn’t have the time to grade. I have decided I am not going to grade Private Practice, The Big C, Dexter, out of respect and because they are all a 10, but also Pretty Little Liars, because the show sucks so badly I just watch it to kill time, and most of the time it does not even make a 2 in my opinion, The Carrie Diaries, for the same reason, but it did meet like 3 or sometimes even a 4, but I watch it, again, just to kill time, and because I loved Sex and The City when growing up; American Horror Story, because it was not as good as season one, and probably is just a one time watch; Go On, because I do not really have an opinion on it ending, have not decided if I am disappointed or not; most likely Bones and Castle, which are the two shows I was really bored with this season, and possibly Shameless, since March was a long time ago and I do not feel like it. First up is Suburgatory.
Grey’s Anatomy 9.12
Owen screaming at Karev to stab Arizona in her foot. Kevin’s face killed me. That was spectacular, so was the Cristina and the poor orphans scene during the gathering.
Grey’s Anatomy 9.13
The beginning, with everyone confused and the cameras and Bailey rocking that practice and Grey being better than her, and Chief not wanting to cooperate, was much better than the rest.
bones was absolutely amazing! but hodgins and angela are broke now! why didn’t pelant empty brennan’s account?
I cried at the end. Bones’s ‘Not my problem’ answer was great.
‘We’re not judging you.’
Amaro hates gays, why the hell is he working at SVU then? I just needed one thing to understand why I never liked him and this may be it.
Shameless is back to its best, incredible episode. ‘Well, that’s a piece of shit anyway.’
‘It’s like I said, the only way to make money when you’re poor is to steal it or scam it, but hey, let me know if the rules are changing.’
‘I don’t excuse you, you sick bitch. I don’t excuse you ’cause you’re hot or ’cause you’re blonde or ’cause of what you’ve got between your legs. You see that? They’re digging your grave. And u want to b gone bfore they get down to 6 feet. How’s it goin’, boys? Tick-tock, kid fucker.’
‘This house is so quiet.’ ‘Kids! Breakfast!’ ‘Jeez, Fiona.’ ‘This shit is all in your head, V. This house ain’t quiet.’
‘No shit?’ ‘No shit.’ ‘No shit?’
‘Only one coupon per customer.’ ‘It doesn’t say that. I have four coupons! I dug through the neighbours’ trash to get them!’
‘Just stay here and bag the groceries.’ ‘We didn’t pay.’ ‘She said we could have ’em.’
‘I’d be happy to give you a coupon for a free ham.’ ‘That’d be great.’
‘The kid’s already a half-wit. U want 2 give him autism too? Now close your mouth before someone considers it an invitation, and pour me a goddamn drink.’
‘That kid’s just got cancer. Hymie’s mentally deficient. That’s a permanent condition.’ ‘You should know, Frank.’
‘Why didn’t you stab him?’ ‘Stab him with what?’ ‘You ride the city bus without a knife?’
‘I’ll file a report, but…’ ‘But what? Nobody cares about a pervert on a bus?’
‘Dude wanted a blow in exchange for a job, giving new meaning to blow job. You grow up in tis house, you think that nothing can shock you anymore and then.’
‘Yo, we’re going to jump a pedophile. You want to come?’ ‘Have fun wailing on the pedophile.’ ‘Is there any way not to?’
‘What the fuck you want?’ ‘Convicted child rapist just moved in down the street.’ ‘Let’s get the boys.’
‘What the fuck is this little parade?’ ‘Kid fucker, next block.’
‘Since when do you…parent? Well, make sure you wash the sheets too, okay? ‘I look like a woman?’
‘That is terrible ugly dress. Your friend, she must not like you very much.’
‘The good news is, the cancer’s in your brain. And you never were much of a thinker, so it probably won’t affect you that much.’
What I tweeted during Revenge: Nooooo! Kill Victoria Grayson? No, Aiden, please no!
‘We know he’s trying to save his sister. But who’s the target?’ ‘Victoria. Track his phone before it’s to late.’
‘You think we’ll ever get back to being the people we once were?’ ‘Maybe. Just not tonight.’
Go On 1.13
Quitting the show, but I’m gonna miss Anne’s ‘I’m listening.’ and her being angry all the time.
wait, so Alexis is still 18? She’s been 18 for two seasons now. It’s 2013, why hasn’t she turned 19 yet?
Pretty Little Liars 3.16
Most likely the best episode of the show ever. I am so glad Spencer finally knows Toby’s working with Mona.
Pretty Little Liars 3.17
This second half of season three is surpringly good. Hanna at the lesbian bar and better, her mom asking her if a pink drink is a gay thing and if she wanted to try something new.
I am quitting the show, I have given it a lot of second chances and there is nothing that could possibly save this show.
Carrie Diaries 1.02
I was kind of hoping the second episode would be bad, so I could quit the show, but it was pretty good.
Carrie Diaries 1.03
The episode was fine, nothing special.
Private Practice 6.12
A beautiful episode. Georgia, Caroline and Rachel! And Addie got Henry and Jake! And Violet is gonna write another book and I won’t survive next episode.
Grey’s Anatomy 9.11
Nooo! What do you mean Seattle Grace goes bankrupt?! Of course the insurance company wouldn’t pay. Nicely played, Shonda.
‘They say ignorance is bliss because once you know, you can’t go back. Will you be strong or will you fall apart? It’s hard to predict, so don’t worry about it. Enjoy the time you have before the news comes. Yep, ignorance is bliss.’
Let it go, Amanda, come on, let’s go.
Liv calls Amanda Georgia Peach.
He said he was gonna make her do it, until she didn’t want it again, to exorcise the demon of sex in her.I’m a dead girl walking, but he could still have a life.
He got the wrong priest, you should let him go.
That’s not the way it works.
A good SVU storyline.
It’s my fault he did, I shouldn’t have told him to stop.
You can say no any time.
If only we did not have this Jack/the bar storyline and Nolan’s love life we do not care about the show would be perfect. What it needs is more Victoria, more Victoria interacting with Emily and with Conrad. The episode itself was definitely worth watching, the revealing abuse scene was to congratulate. But like I said, Jack and Nolan storylines, that’s a no. Other than that no good quotes, which is just disappointing.
Go on 1.11
I loved the episodes, many amazing quotes, and Hey Ryan remix killed me. And the intro coming right after this scene was an amazing choice!
If it succeeds, my life has been worth living. If it fails, I’ll be like Yolanda.
Let’s hear it for Mr. K! But not too loud, as we know it sexualized him in the past.
I have nothing. My life has no purpose. I’m just waiting to die. Like Yolanda.
Nothing’s worth it anymore. My life is devoid of meaning or purpose or hope.
What brave emotional honesty. Let’s discuss that further.
No, Ryan has his thing. My despair can wait.
Fausta, honey, there’s been some kind of mistake. You forgot to send me an invitation to the quinceanera.
I didn’t forget. You are not invited.
Wait a minute. Not that I care… I mean, I clearly have way better things to do…Why not?
Because you are… how you say… You are sour, you are difficult. Momento. Sonia wrote a few down for me. You are wet blanket, bummer, buzz kill, bit-cah? How you read?
Yes. That’s good. Bitch.
Well, what happens on the radio is between you and Dan from Burbank. Listen, is there anything I can get you? Coffee, medication, anything to help you avoid another epic meltdown like the last time you were on TV?
Do you experience me as a wet blanket? A bummer?
Anne, you’re kind of catching me off guard here, but yeah.
Fausta didn’t invite me to her niece’s thing. I mean, yes, okay, I’m not all sunshine and rainbows, but my life is hell. I’m basically drowning in a sea of sorrow.
Hard to imagine why she wouldn’t want that at a 15-year-old’s party.
I can be as difficult as I want. My stuff is bigger than hers.
I don’t think she sees it that way.
Why are you defending her? Why aren’t you mad?
Well, I was invited.
What? It never even occurred to me that she would invite you. That’s it. She’s not getting away with this.
Honey, is she bothering you?
What the fuck is this? I don’t want to know.
Anne, what are you doing here?
Shut it, Aladdin. Fausta does not get to exclude me from this. Look there. A completely empty table. All right, out of the way, girls. Widow coming through. Yeah, that’s right. Life ain’t all Justin Bieber and second base.
Now I have to be brave enough to ask, “what’s next?”
911, that’s a sequence of numbers that you should call. The fashion police to talk about that firbucci’s hat there.
Look at her having so much fun with her family and her friends while I sit at the table with my partner, loneliness.
Banana shoes, come. Translate for me. I want to hear what she says about me.
No, don’t sit at the table. It lessens my isolation.
She’s glad that we made it. She loves her niece.
Wow, what an orator. Move over, Abe Lincoln.
Fausta, I’m sorry that you miss your family. I’m sorry I sat at your table. I, uh, I am a bit-cah.
No. It’s okay. You and these people, you help fill my empty table.
How do you do it? How do you smile with so much pain?
You can smile or you can cry. And I choose to smile. You people help.
Come on. Let’s get you fun clothes.
No more sad man suit.
This is a good suit.
Oh, God, look at him.
Are those tears in his beard?
Becoming a better person is such a drag.
Oh, honey, you’re on TV.
Private Practice 6.11
Amelia’s episode was not special.
Cougar Town 3.01
Disappointed the show used to be soo good.
Pretty Little Liars 3.15
Not so bad.
Grey’s Anatomy 9.10
Yet Shonda killed off another character.
And we’re back to bad episodes.
I hate the Jimmy’s storyline.
Okay I have missed Wanda and Buck like crazy!
Sayonara, I don’t even like feet and definitely not when they’re coming off.
Who wants a real life when you can dance.
I love going undercover Because it’s fun and exciting.
I have a lot of stories like that, I’m Wanda.
Booth and I intend to win the rumba competition.
And solve the murder.
Of course that’s the main objective.
I understand Angela and I feels so bad for her.
Bones competing with Clark, yes, but the murder no.
Carrie Diaries 1.01
Sweet and awesome. I swore not to start another teen show, but the teenage version of me was obsessed with Sex and the City.
I have just realized that epiosdes with Alezis are betterm but enough with the boyfriend storyline. Anyone else wants to see her in trouble?
Major hottie is what you are.
Okay, now that we’ve got that cleared up.
During that investigation Stana loked like from season 2! Other than that, just another case.
Go On 1.12
Each episode has good and bad moments, never shockingly good.
The only show I added to the list this fall, which clearly means it is special. I am not a huge fan of Ryan, and the idea of him seeing his wife already three times I think, is not for me. But the whole group therapy thing. I used to be obsessed with ‘Starved’ and now that I have this one after so many years, it is really refreshing. The show was very good at the beginning, then it got terrible, and now it is acceptable. Anne is my favorite of the crazies.
This is how I graded season 1 so far.
My grade: 4.7/10
Private Practice 6.08
Private Practice 6.09
‘Sheldon, I’m dying’. ‘Not today.’
So who do you talk to then?’ ‘Honestly? You.’
‘It’s better to have someone you can just be alone with.’ ‘Yeah.’
Greys Anatomy 9.08
‘Just look at them. They’re so fresh and shiny. Can’t believe we used to be them.’
‘I can’t believe they used to be us.’
‘What do we do? What do we do?’ ‘ You’re the surgeon, hon. You tell us.’
‘All the attendings are asleep right now, and we’re in charge. We’re saving lives. This is it, you know? We’re surgeons. We’re no longer med students waiting to be surgeons.’
‘What the…’ ‘Oh, my God.’ ‘Oh, hell, no.’ ‘God, I love this job.’ ‘Now get us a real damn doctor!’
‘They’re trying to kill me! That’s what’s going on.’
‘U know that live nerves r better than dead 1s. Even I know that n I’m an intern.’
‘I have a jacket. It’s so far away.’
‘There don’t have to be harps playing or birds singing or rose petals falling from the sky.And there are definitely days when the romance is dead. But if you look around…Things are pretty amazing. So stop for a second. Enjoy the beauty. Feel the magic. Drink it in. Cause it won’t last forever. The romance will fade. Things will happen. People will change. Love will die. But… Maybe not today.’
Greys Anatomy 9.09
‘The body doesn’t know the difference between nerves and excitement, panic and doubt, the beginning and the end. The body just tells you to get the hell out. Sometimes you ignore it. That’s the reasonable thing to do. But sometimes you listen. You’re supposed to trust your gut, right? When your body says run… Run.’
My version of family isn’t like your version. You guys give each other crap and then you laugh about it. You’d walk through fire for each other. Greys are not like that.’
Perfect fall finale. Let’s hope we’re done with Ashley. And nobody cares about the bar.
Monsters, aliens, phantoms – none of them are real. The thought that an actual person could do this is too awful, so our imaginations create a way|to make it easier to take. But even the strongest of imaginations can’t protect us once we know the truth.
My Dark Passenger. That’s what I call my need to kill. Because it’s like this thing living inside me, telling me what to do, saying I have to kill, not leaving me any choice.
You’re not a puppet. Of course you have a choice.
Actually, I don’t.
Come on, Dex. It’s just you. You’re the one who wants the arsonist dead. And I don’t blame you. Who wouldn’t?
It’s not the same.
Well, what do you mean? How is it different?
Cause a lot of people feel|like they want to kill somebody, but I have to follow through.
Of course I have a Dark Passenger. There’s no other way to explain this compulsion.
Excuse me, but what|is so fucking awesome about my brother dating a killer?
That voice I hadn’t seen that look on your face since you took me to see the snow. Is that what you were talking about? Your Dark…Rider?
Dark Passenger. Okay, fine. It sounds a little silly when you say it out loud.
No, I get what you mean, you know. You do seem like a different person, so it makes sense that you would name that part of yourself. Does it just take over? Where do you go? Does Dexter Morgan just disappear?
No, I’m still there.
Do you hear a voice, or?
Not exactly. It’s more like a need.
So it’s just like a feeling.
Now that I have proof, my urges are beyond my control.
Your Dark Passenger. Where did you come up with that, anyway?
I thought I got it from you.
I gave you the code. The Dark Passenger was all yours.
You said it got into me too early, in that shipping container. Like you thought I was possessed.
I meant you were traumatized, Dexter. Not possessed. I remember the first time you said it. You must have been about 12. I just let it go. I couldn’t let you blame yourself for feelings that were too complicated for a young boy to understand. But you’re not a boy anymore.
Maybe the Dark Passenger is just a feeling.
It can’t be.
Because if there’s no Dark Passenger, then I’m responsible for everything I’ve done. It sure is a whole lot simpler|to just pin all the blame on something else, isn’t it, Dexter? It’s much scarier to think that the Dark Passenger is no more real than I am.
The Dark Passenger has been with me ever since I can remember, pulling the strings, running the show. But as it turns out, I’m no puppet.
Personally, I think she’s had|one too many ‘mosquitos’ or whatever they call that goddamn drink.
This is the most fucked-est Christmas ever.
Christmas is a time of expectation. If you’re good, a red-suited fat man will break into your house and leave you presents. But Santa Claus doesn’t exist. The most wonderful time of the year celebrates a lie.
I cut him into six roughly equal|pieces with a chain saw… just like he did my mother. Just like I’m gonna do to you.
Who am I gonna be when you’re dead? Still some fucking freak, probably.
You should have killed me.
I should know better|than to count on the future. All you can ever believe in is now, this moment. Because in a blink… everything can change.
Perfection. I’m not even sorry. Bye LaGuerta. I’ve never liked you. I cannot believe I have to wait another 10months. Didn’t Deb see Dex kill like yday?
The intervention was really cheesy, but the rest of the episode was pretty spectacular.
Go On 1.11
It’s the end of the world you know. Anne is incredible.
If it was really terrible, I would know what to do, but this one was actually pretty good/funny, so I guess I will watch a few more till I make this decision.
Grey’s Anatomy 9.07
So this guy grabbed Ellen’s butt, and then her breast. Second McBaby! Poor Cristina. No, April, what the hell are you doing?
Revenge is back to its best! And winter finale promo! Oh my, but just one episode left? Wasn’t Victoria boarding the plane like…yesterday? Victpria’s storyline is just what I expected it to be.
‘Was it worth it?’ ‘Some would say you owe all of that to me. You may think I knocked you down, but you landed on your feet.’
‘Victoria! Come here, quickly. You just couldn’t control yourself, could you? Batting your eyelashes like a little whore.’
‘And then one night, she saw him sneak into my room. And the next morning, she threw me to the curb.’
‘You threw me out on the street. I was a child. I was fifteen!’ ‘You drove a wedge between me and every man I ever loved. I should’ve listened to your deadbeat father, gotten rid of you before you were even born.’
‘It serves you right for choosing a pedophile over your own daughter.’
‘We do have a good number of rooms here. Pity, as you say, none of them are for you.’ ‘You vindictive bitch.’ ‘Goodbye, mother.’
‘We speak in hushed voices, so as not to wake our memories, the things we’ve done, the things we’ll continue to do, for fear of breaking the cycle, how fierce we were when we were young, when we were unafraid of coming unhinged.’
‘For fear of breaking the cycle…’
‘Was it worth it? Has the darkness finally been lifted?’ ‘Ask me tomorrow.’
‘Never thought I would see so many things that have come to pass, but here we are.’
‘Everything about my father’s conspiracy is in this box. Everything… about the girl I left behind when I started on all of this.’
‘Double infinity.’ ‘A journey with no end.’
‘You can be absolutely fearless in the face of death and yet so afraid to live?’ ‘I’m not afraid. Death has always calmed me. It’s soothing, predictable, inevitable. With a knife in my hand I feel it’s mine to control.’ ‘It gives you intimacy. But it never /lasts.’
First time in a long time, I am disappointed. But Fisher will always remain my favorite intern. Depression and dark comedy all the way.
Go On 1.10
Way better than last week. Anne is my favorite, but no surprises there.
That was actually…very good!
X Factor 22.20 and 2.21
Vino? Why Vino? America, you’ve made a huge mistake. ‘Anybody could take that number one spot, even the girl in eighth place.’ loved that line! Go Cece! Paige is the only one who had the guts to tell Demi she’s wrong. Tate blew d competition away. Josh Krajcik was my favorite last year, but I was not crazy about his performance or song. Same with Alicia Keys. ‘When you watched Carly Rose’s performance did you feel that she was number one?’ ‘Yeah.’ Poor Tate, but Carly was unbelievable last week.’I’m sure we’ll be seeing you accept a Country Music Award one day. You’re brilliant.’
I have made two tough choices, I have decided to quit on American Horror Story, but only this season. Season three is a new story and hopefully It will be closer to season 1’s one. I really loved the show last year, but this year is just average. It would be good, but the creatures and Nazi doctor, I have seen it so many times, I do not care about the storyline at all.
The second show is Suburgatory. The show was strong last season, but this one is just disastrous. There were two exceptions, the first episode of the season, this weeks episode, but the rest was terrible. I will watch the rest of the fall season, but the chances of me tuning in for midseason are very low.
Private Practice 6.06
Absolute perfection. Addie will always be my most favorite character.
Private Practice 6.07
I thought Jake’s episode would be boring, and there I was surprised! Seeing Kate at the cinema, yes, God, yes.
‘You’re a serial killer and I’m more fucked up than you are.’
Is this crazy? You and me just sitting here eating breakfast?
I always eat breakfast, it’s important.
‘I’ve been doing this for a long time… and I understand the shame and the stigma. But keeping the abuse secret… doesn’t make it go away.’
We’re here to save you.
You parked here? Are you kiddinh me, don’t you see this neighboorhood?
Yeah, keep on walking.
Kate broke the car’s window.
Hidning in the playground.
Martha’s all ‘pricinct is my theatre’.
Oh, please stop, you’re a terrible actress.
You got trouble written all over you.
Martha and Kate’s father.
Just an average white guy walking through the Bronz in the middle of the night, what could go wrong.
Shakespeare over here made a call.
How she threw her hands on him.
I’ve never smelled anything like that. I suppose this could be…
Do not fall into the evidence, Dr.Hodgins. It would only add to your humiliation.
Dr. Hodgins foolishly inhaled nauseous gases emanating from the remains and he fainted.
How are you gonna fit a murder into that?
Why does your office smell like Thanksgiving?
You’re a political ezile, that’s so cool, in a terrible way of course.
I’m not buttering her up. You want some wine?
I think you did.
Oh my God.
Yeah, I know.
I love you. You’re my corroborator.
Who dreams about murder at 3 am in the morning?
The hell you are.
I don’t have reasons.
X Factor 22.18 and 2.19
Vino Alan came in third third week in a row and Tate Stevens lost to Carly Rose, but that’s okay, cause she was incredible! Beatrice Miller was my third favorite, and even though she sang Chasing Cars (Hi, Greys), this week was her weakest. Very sad to see her go. Carly and Cece Frey are up one spot on my list! The rest of the contestants can go home.
Go On 1.09
Nothing special, not really funny.
American Horror Story 2.06
The second season is disappointing.
