REVIEW: The Vampire Diaries “Stand By Me”

February 22nd, 2013

vampire_diaries_stand_by_me

Peeps, I don’t know. I just don’t know. I kind of think this show is just getting too sad. Is that a thing? It’s got to be because seriously, it’s just too much. ‘Stand By Me’ is our latest episode of TVD, and as you may have guessed…it’s sad. Not even tear inducing though, just sort of numb sad.

REVIEW: The Vampire Diaries “Down The Rabbit Hole”

February 15th, 2013

Down the Rabbit Hole

‘Down the Rabbit Hole’ is our latest episode of TVD, and I’d say the ending theme song should be “My doppelganger is back, and there’s gonna be trouble (hey now, hey now…my doppelganger is back).” You know where this is going obvs.

So, like last week, our players are all in the same places. Klaus, Caroline, and Tyler are still in Mystic Falls. Bonnie, Jeremy, and the Professor are closest in the race to the Silas situation. Damon is with the other hunter, Galen. Rebekah, Stefan, and Elena are a tenuous little crew (that lasts about .7 seconds). There also is some other mystery person on the island. Gee, I wonder who it could be?!

REVIEW: The Vampire Diaries “Into the Wild”

February 8th, 2013

vampire_diaries_into_the_wild

Yo peeps, ‘Into the Wild’ is our most recent episode of TVD. And I think it was good, really good.

The majority of this episode is sort of like a vampire-esque LOST situation. Meaning, they’re on an island. And peeps need to learn to live together or they’ll die alone. Heavy. So, the Professor is leading the gang to where the cure/Silas is. The gang includes Damon, Stefan, Rebekah, Elena, Bonnie, and Jeremy. Rebekah sees a use for everyone except for Elena…Damon’s use is his nice behind obvs. We finally also find out the heart of the Professor’s story. He apparently went on a quest for this place last year where he saw his dead witch wife (who died when she was trying to bring their son back to life) in the Silas well area. She’s the one who gave him all the info he needed for this raising Silas business. He really didn’t want to do it because of all the bloodshed and all, but she used her dead lady wiles and convinced him.

REVIEW: The Vampire Diaries “After School Special”

January 18th, 2013

Hey all, TVD is new again with ‘After School Special.’ The TV Chick liked my to the point summary last time, so we’ll stick with that.

Our main storyline tonight is…Rebekah is back! And guys, she is mad. Like really mad. And she wants everyone to pay for it. She has a little minion, April. (Guys, seriously. April is the worst). Rebekah is holding Elena, Caroline, and Stefan hostage in the library and compelling them to tell the truth. It’s pretty awful. Elena told Stefan about all her feeeeelings for Damon and how she’s fo sho not in love with Stefan anymore. Caroline is appropriately outraged.

REVIEW: The Vampire Diaries “O Come, All Ye Faithful”

December 14th, 2012

O Come, All Ye Faithful

Hey peeps – TVD is all new with their mid-season finale – “O Come, All Ye Faithful.” FULL DISCLOSURE: I watched tonight’s episode with a friend that has never seen The Vampire Diaries and doesn’t own a TV. Let’s just say she’s working though Frasier on Netflix right now. So, I missed things yo. Because of that, I’m going to do a shorter summary this evening lest I get things really wrong from not hearing everything as I shouted Vampire! Human! Witch! Hybrid! every time someone came on the screen so she’d get the gist. The good news is we don’t need to deal with GfAW anymore after tonight.

REVIEW: The Vampire Diaries “We Always Have Bourbon Street”

DamonUniform

E here again for some more TVD – this week’s episode is “We’ll Always Have Bourbon Street.”

Damon and Elena are making out, and she is late to school! Bad seed man. Remember when Elena used to be into being a good girl? I sort of miss that.

Stefan and Caroline are discussing the siring situation and debating whether that’s the deal or not. This is cross cut with Elena and Damon having a morning quickie in which she scratches his back until he bleeds. Yikes, seriously, good girl gone bad.

tvd

Hey people, TVD is new again with “We All Go A Little Mad Sometimes.” With the holidays fast approaching, I get it. (Ba dun bing). Okay, we’re not talking about this opening anymore. It keeps changing every week, and I’ll just have to accept it even though it’s weird to me.

REVIEW: The Vampire Diaries “The Killer”

November 9th, 2012

The Killer

Hey peeps, we’re back with some more TVD. This episode is called “The Killer,” and there most be some serious killing going on because pretty much everyone on this show is a killer. (Spoiler Alert: yep, serious killing). Okay guys, the opening changed again. This is just getting weird.

We start where we left off – with Connor and the Professor. Connor killed Nate and took his head to get the venom from his gums (blech). The Professor wants Connor to keep Bonnie out of harm’s way. Connor doesn’t care about all of that mess obvs. (I have no idea what the Professor’s deal is, but I’m sure it will be awesome and connect with everything soon enough).

REVIEW: The Vampire Diaries “The Five”

November 2nd, 2012

The Five

Tonight’s Vampire Diaries is titled “The Five,” which is legit because I want to know the deal with that mess is. And we do find out, huzzah! First things first, we keep adding to the opening. (And I’m like what up peeps? This is going to be like 30 minutes long by the time we reach the series finale).

The episode then begins with 5 beefy dudes in a circle who probably all tried out for the role of Thor (better luck next time guys!) There’s a witch doing some witch stuff in the center and the tattoos start to form on their body. Also, mah boys got swords. This was a flashback obvs.

REVIEW: The Vampire Diaries “Memorial”

October 19th, 2012

Memorial

October is awesome because there is so much Vampire Diaries to be had, whee! This week’s episode is ‘Memorial.’ First things first, the new opening is here to stay. With added bonus material this week!

We begin with Elena and Stefan in the woods getting ready to do some hunting. This scene is crosscut with Damon and Stefan arguing about Stefan’s plan to get her on the straight and narrow right off the bat by eating only animals. He’s hoping she can avoid a bender this way whereas Damon is like, vamps eat people – this is one of your dumber plans. We cut back to Stefan and Elena in the woods – things are about to get hot. Everything is now heightened for Elena – we’re hearing heartbeats and everything. But, then she goes and barfs some blood. Ruh roh.
