REVIEW: The Vampire Diaries “The Last Day”

April 29th, 2011

The Last Day

Oh my goodness!! For realz! Loved it. “The Last Day” was yet another awesome episode of The Vampire Diaries that made me cry a few of my own tears (I’m saving the rest for the moments of Season two that are left).

We begin the episode in a good way in my opinion: with a tortured Damon in bed. Out in the living room, Elijah is filling Stefan in on the spell and Klaus’s deal and reminding peeps that it’s a full moon tonight. Damon comes out and tells them (Elena, Stefan, and Elijah) that he thinks that they should just kill Klaus ahead of time. Elijah gives him the slow your roll look and continues to explain the ritual (gotta kill a vamp and a wolf, need a witch, and Klaus has to completely drink the doppelganger). However! Elijah has a magic elixir that he originally got for Katherine when we tried this the first time, that should save Elena. She’d need to drink it and then would presumably wake up after being dead. Bickering ensues over whether this will work.

Goodbye, Michael Scott: Favorite Lines & a Tribute to the Best Boss In TV History

April 28th, 2011

Michael Scott

Tonight is the night where we must bid adieu to one of the greatest bosses in television history: Michael Scott. Michael might be this goofy guy who screws everything up on the outside, but at his core, he is a fantastic boss, and an even better friend. Just when he seemed to be getting crazier, he would get uncharacteristically serious, and prove his value as a boss and a friend. Idiot Savant is not the right term, because he’s not an idiot. On the contrary, Michael is whip smart in his own way, and throughout the years, we’ve laughed and cried (and sometimes cringed) along with him. And I know tonight, I will be crying as he leaves Dunder Mifflin. Steve Carell will leave behind an incredible legacy that will be quite hard to live up to. He has created something truly special, and so as a tribute, I came up with my favorite Michael Scott lines of the series. Hope you enjoy and please feel free to weigh in with your favorites!

REVIEW: Glee “Born This Way”

April 27th, 2011

GLEE-Born-This-Way-Season-2-Episode-18-550x380

Last night’s episode of Glee was super-sized and Gaga-ized, but it took on some very important issues. The theme of the episode was probably acceptance (and things that come along with that — denial, change, and in some cases, slushees). The theme is very fitting for McKinley given the bullying problems, the gay contingent (closet or otherwise), and the idea that the Glee Club is still not accepted by the student body. There was some really great stuff with Karofsky and Kurt, but I wished this could have been more of the focal point of the episode. While I loved learning about Rachel and Quinn’s various insecurities, Kurt returning to McKinley is such a big deal and I wanted to see more of the scene between him and Karofsky. Regardless, this super-sized episode (while it did feel a tad long) was full of a lot of very important moments, some amazing singing and a real, meaty, wonderful storyline for Emma.

REVIEW: Make It Or Break It “Hungary Heart”

April 26th, 2011

MAKE IT OR BREAK IT Hungary Heart Season 2 Episode 15 (3)

Last night’s episode of Make It Or Break It featured the return of one of my favorites. But “Hungary Heart” also featured a big revelation for Emily, that I was not pleased about. More on that later. However, it also featured a big breakthrough moment for Kaylie (which I was happy to see), and a big meet (which I always love).

REVIEW: The Vampire Diaries “Klaus”

April 22nd, 2011

Klaus

E back again to discuss a ridiculously informative episode of The Vampire Diaries entitled “Klaus.”  For nerds who love to get information out of their TV shows, this is the episode for you! In fact, there’s so much to learn, we don’t even see half the cast including Bonnie, Jeremy, Caroline, and Matt.

INTERVIEW: Candice Accola (Caroline Forbes) from The Vampire Diaries

April 21st, 2011

Candice_Accola

One of my favorite things to ever happen on The Vampire Diaries was when Caroline turned into a vampire. Caroline was always interesting to me — this quirky, controlling do-gooder who seemed to have it all: the guy, the popularity and the best friends. Then her whole world flipped upside down. This huge game-changer turned (no pun intended) Caroline into one of my favorite characters in all of primetime television. I recently had the chance to chat with Candice Accola (who plays Caroline) about the new developments with Matt and her mom, Tyler’s return, and the big finale.

REVIEW: Glee “Night of Neglect”

April 20th, 2011

GLEE Night of Neglect Season 2 Episode 17

Glee is back!! It’s been a while, and I am very happy to have it back. Last night’s episode “Night of Neglect,” featured two of my favorite guest stars: Charice and Gwyneth Paltrow. However, they both won’t be back for an undetermined amount of time. In any case, Night of Neglect focused on neglected artists (essentially the Glee club) and had some major advancements for all the Wemma fans out there. And there were some performances that absolutely blew my mind. Also, Jessalyn (Terri Schuester) was back! Sadly, not for enough screen time but it looks like she’ll be back next week given how things were resolved.

Q&A: Charice (Sunshine Corazon) from Glee

April 19th, 2011

glee-charice-500

Glee returns tonight with guest stars Gwyneth Paltrow and Charice! I really enjoyed Charice’s quirky character Sunshine Corazon when she first came on earlier this season, and I’m glad to see her return. She is going to sing Celine Dion’s “All By Myself,” and I have faith that she will nail it. I recently got to chat with Charice on a media call, and she talked about coming back to Glee (she’s a Gleek!), viral artists, and a dream song she’d like to perform on the show.

REVIEW: Make It Or Break It “Life or Death”

April 19th, 2011

MAKE IT OR BREAK IT Life or Death Season 2 Episode 14 (7)

Last night’s episode of Make It Or Break It “Life or Death” featured a big wake up call for Kaylie and the girls of The Rock. I think it was a great “aftermath” episode, which left a lot of questions for the girls. There was also a lot of gymnastics, which I always love (seeing as it is a show about gymnastics). I’m curious what direction Emily will go in (will she be pregnant like in real life? Will she get kicked off the team?), how will Kaylie heal (now that she’s finally admitted she has a problem), and most importantly, who will be the new coach for The Rock girls?

INTERVIEW: Merritt Wever (Zoey) and Stephen Wallem (Thor) from Nurse Jackie

As some shows are starting to wrap up their seasons, Nurse Jackie is just getting started. The All Saints Crew returned at the end of March and the third season is shaping up to be absolutely fantastic. And believe me when I say, things are just going to get more crazy, more hilarious and more dark as the season goes on. I recently had the chance to catch up with Merritt Wever (who plays the hilarious Zoey) and Stephen Wallem (who plays the wonderful Thor) at a press luncheon. They talked about what we can expect this season, love interests, and much more. Stephen even shared how it feels to see his personal struggle with diabetes documented on screen.
