So Needless to Say

Apparently I have things to say about television shows lately. So like my last post, this post comes with very strong spoiler warnings for both Season 4 of Veronica Mars and Season 4 of The Magicians. If you haven’t seen both of those season finales (or you just don’t care) look away now child of the light! I’m serious. Big spoilers here. Turn back before it’s too late! Okay, here we are in spoiler land. It’s nice here. The water is so warm. The reason I want to talk about both of these seasons at the same time is because of my last post. I spent quite a few...

We Used to be Friends…

So, I think it’s been long enough that a spoiler-filled analysis of Veronica Mars Season 4 is fair game, but just in case you haven’t seen it yet and would like to be unspoiled, turn back now! Last chance. I mean it. Okay, if you’re still here, I assume you have either seen all of season 4 or heard about it in advance and noped out of the season because you heard that Logan gets killed. Various parts of the internet were aflame afterwards and I can understand that impulse. Quite a few of my friends who were big VM fans had heard about the ending in advance and decided that...

Top Seven TV Shows

Posted by on Aug 26, 2016 in Television Reviews | 0 comments

Continuing the theme of last week’s post, but this time collecting my favorites for the small screen. This list is much harder for me to winnow down, mostly because there’s always a tendency for shows that are still on air to bump other deserving series off. What I’m currently binge watching also seems much better than it should probably rate it in an overall list just because of the recency. In the end, I decided to go with the shows I watch over and over again.   1. Veronica Mars For me, this is the holy grail: smart dialogue, amazing acting, crisp writing. Veronica...

Review of Voltron (2016)

Posted by on Jun 14, 2016 in Television Reviews | 0 comments

Hello my lovlies! Over the weekend I binge watched the new Voltron on Netflix so I thought I’d come on here and blather about it a little so you can figure out if you want to watch it or not. This will be relatively spoiler-free and will mostly be about generalities rather than plot points. Like many people about my age, Voltron was a pretty important part of my childhood. In fact, if I have to hang my love of SFF on any one thing, it was probably my love of giant robot cartoons (Robotech was my other love). Since Voltron was so near and dear to my heart, I was a little bit...

Review of Lost Girl, Seasons 1 – 5

Posted by on May 14, 2016 in Television Reviews | 0 comments

Just yesterday I finished the final episode of the show Lost Girl. I was pretty late to the bandwagon. I only started watching it sometime early this year, around the time it was announced that they were in the middle of the final season. It’s a bittersweet feeling for me. On the one hand I don’t have to wait around years for the storyline to finish up. On the other hand I don’t feel like I got very much time with Bo and her cohort. Spoiler free summary: It’s a fun show. The writing is clever. Anna Silk is brilliant and funny. Kenzi is the bomb. The show is very...

Review of Orphan Black, Season 1

Posted by on May 9, 2015 in Television Reviews | 0 comments

This review contains spoilers. Orphan Black is a scifi television series created by BBC America. The show takes place in Toronto, Canada and features as its main character Sarah Manning, a British punk rocker sort of girl who has predictably fallen in with the wrong crowd. The show starts with her on a train platform with the sense that she’s running from something and trying to come home. After a frustrating phone conversation, Sarah is shocked to discover another woman on the platform who looks just like her, and even more shocked when that other woman walks in front of a moving train....
