CLAIRE DANES FOR ALL OF THE EMMYS. Yes, I realize the Internet gave all the Emmys to Monica Potter a few weeks ago for that episode where she finds out she has cancer. But dammit, Claire Danes deserves all of the Emmys too. Seriously though, we’re only 3 episodes into the new season of Homeland and Claire Danes has already earned her inevitable 2013 Emmy. I don’t think I’ve ever been so simultaneously heartbroken and happy for a TV character the way I was for Carrie at the end of this week’s episode when Saul showed her Brody’s video. I get emotional just thinking about it. Every single episode of S2 has knocked it out of the park, and there are no signs of that changing. I would watch a new episode of this show every day of the week if I could…IS IT SUNDAY YET?!
Arrow is a good, fun show…that Stephen Amell makes better by being a good actor that also looks really great without a shirt on. There were so many options for a shirtless picture of him that it actually took me 20 minutes to sort through them all and pick this one. Tough work, but someone has to do it. But in all seriousness, Arrow is a pleasant surprise and if the next few episodes hold up in quality and ratings then it could become the second show on the CW to deliver ratings that aren’t embarrassing (TVD is the first, obviously). Here’s to many more weeks of Stephen Amell doing workouts like the one pictured to the left!
10.9 million people watched the season premiere of The Walking Dead last night. 10.9 MILLION. At least I know that we’re all going to be well-educated and prepared if the zombie apocalypse ever happens (I’ve already come to terms with the fact that I would probably die early). Now, on to the more important things…like how disgusting and full of gore this episode was. I made the crucial mistake of eating dinner while watching and all desire to eat was GONE after watching Rick chop off Herschel’s leg with a somewhat blunt axe. But really, couldn’t he have used the much sharper looking machete?!
How amazing was this TVD premiere?! I don’t even have anything sarcastic to say, just here to praise Julie Plec & company. The whole episode I was worried that Bonnie would find a way to save Elena and we’d have to take 5 steps backwards, but the writers stuck with it and officially made Elena a vampire! Aside from the vampire/shipper drama, the one moment in this premiere that really stuck with me was Rebekah telling Klaus that she was the only one that stuck by him and mourned him, but he still only cared about himself. Claire Holt, you’re killing me. Poor Rebekah needs some serious therapy.Tweet
