Jane the Virgin: Chapter 17

JAV117a_0264b

I’m not liking this, they’re putting a pretty big edge between Jane and Rafael and I’m not comfortable with it. I hate to see them so distant 😦 …

What it is that Michael ex-girlfriend is playing at?! I get that she wants Michael back, but why the hell befriend Jane if she knows full well who she is?!

I really like Petra! Since her mother went away, I like her more each episode. What I’m not liking is the fact that she’s still very much into Rafael. But let’s all admit it, she’s pretty smart, finding out that Aaron is indeed Roman it’s pretty cool – I actually believed that she felt something for him…

Let’s give it to Rogelio, saying that he’s getting there with Xo, but she needs to get along with his mother in order for him to say “I love you”.

   

iZombie: Liv and Let Clive

izombie-02

This one is probably my least favorite episode of iZombie so far.

On the case, Liv eats the brain of a murder victim, killed by the Chinese mafia, and has visions that lead her to believe that Clive is a dirty cop. The brain also gives her mad Kung-Fu skills and a huge onset of paranoia. Turns out that obviously Clive was not dirty, but undercover, and he really did not want Liv to see that side of him… ohhhhh….

Meanwhile, Liv, worried that Major’s girlfriend is making the move to move in with him, convinces Ravi to be his roommate. Against all odds, that actually works out great, they end up having a few (gaming) things in common and I suspect that from now on Liv will spend much more time with her boss and ex-boyfriend. By the way, if I haven’t said it before, here it is, Ravi is my favorite, he’s just amazing!

Blaine, turns out, is quite the intrapeneour. He has created a few (a lot) of zombies and has a full business catering to their needs. His life style involves frequent trips to the hairstylist, manicures and tanning. Oh, what a life!

   

Forever: Best Foot Forward

BestFootForward39

The case was kind of cool this week =D, it went a totally different way than I expected and that is always refreshing.

Henry’s flashbacks to the 20’s were important, it showed what some people are willing to do for their art, even if it’s quite hard to grasp around it.

Abe works with Lucas in order to find Abigail, and tadda… Lucas finds her – obviously he doesn’t know that Abe’s mom is in fact Henry’s wife, but hey… they found her!

On that note, Abe goes to tell his dad that his mom is located right at the time that Jo was about to explain to Henry why the hell she did not want to go to Paris with her boyfriend – spoiler alert Henry, I think it has something to do with the fact that she has feelings for you… just saying!

   

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Afterlife

5863a96d379e4b5ccb371376425b71bb

Fitz-Simmons!!! Fitz-Simmons!!! I was never so happy so see a sandwich… mind you, I cried when I saw that stupid sandwich… you go Fitz-Simmons! After months of seeing them apart and not being able to communicate, it was truly wonderful to see them so in sync, even though apparently they were anything but. For a moment there I thought that Simmons’s loyalties were wavering, but then she showed that not only is she loyal to SHIELD, but she’s also very loyal to Coulson and her team. You go girl!

Meanwhile, Coulson and Hunter try to find Skye, and when they don’t find her, and after Coulson remarks that the new SHIELD are not the bad guys, they decide that they can’t stand still, they’re going to fight back. Coulson asks for reinforcements, a.k.a. Deathlok, and the three of them go on to find what HYDRA is doing with powered people, with the goal that it will lead them to Skye… it involves however to ally with someone bad, Grant Ward. I laughed so hard at Coulson’s interactions with Hunter, they’re both so hilarious. I understand the need to bring Ward back, given that he’s still a part of the show and all that, but I’m not missing him at all in this series…

Skye wakes up in the place they call Afterlife (hence the title of this episode). She meets her transitioner, Lincoln (Luke Mitchell), who heals her injuries and prepares her for training. But she’s smart and an agent after all and she knows he’s not telling her everything. She then finds that Raina is there and Skye is prepared to make her pay for everything she did, but then someone stops her, an elder. Not only a freaking elder, but Skye’s mom! You know, the one her father told us was dead?! Apparently not so!! Very much alive, how?! No idea! But she wants to be Skye’s trainer, for obvious reasons, though poor Skye has no idea.

Skye’s dad though is kept looked away, with Gordon being “the key”. Gordon is creepy, there’s something that he says that I’m pretty sure it means that Cal and Skye are not meant to be alive for much longer. Still, he has his role to play, and he takes Jiaying to see her husband (ex?!), and while she confirms that Skye is there with them, she points out tells him that he’s not going to see her. Outch! I’m starting to not like this Inhumans very much, apart from Lincoln, he seems nice and cute and hot.

    

Weird Loners: Weird Dance

weird-loners-102-08

I’m still not sure about this new show… I really hope that Stosh stops trying to stick his tong down Karen’s throat – especially if she’s eating at the time… gross!

Zara is pretty much my favorite so far.

   

Law & Order: SVU: Granting Immunity

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit - Season 16

Distribution of child pornography and anti-vaxers on the same episode… genius!

I really like the way they handled the problems and complications that arise from unvaccinated children. It’s a real problem people! And that first sequence, when we actually see the dissemination process was super well done.

Poor Nick, do all his children have to move away?! And are he and Rollins still together?!

And poor Liv, how many more times is little Noah going to go to the hospital?! They both deserve a break.

    

Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders

daniel-henney-620x374

The backdoor pilot for the new spin-off series and I loved it. Taking Criminal Minds beyond the borders sounds beyond interesting and I can´t wait to see them deal with all the diplomatic problems that it entails.

I quite liked the team, but if I had to pick my least favorite it was Anna Gunn’s Lily Lambert. I honestly don’t know why, maybe I’m just not a fan of Gunn’s acting… but the way she calmly talks, it kind of annoys me (I also had this problem while watching Gracepoint).

(How weird is it that on this episode there was a “Fitz” and a “Simmons”?!?!?!)

(A series with Daniel Henney?! Yes please!)

   

Young & Hungry: Young & Munchies

Silly me that only this week realized that Young & Hungry was back! I had a wonderful time watching that gang again.

First of all, I really like the intro, I don’t remember ever watching it during the first season.

younghungry

Josh is funnier than ever, now that he knows his feelings for Gabby and (unfortunately) knows that she’s happy with someone else, his character gained a whole new and bigger dimension. Meanwhile, I just want to slap Gabby, sorry girl, but she should be with Josh!

   

The Big Bang Theory: The Fortification Implementation

big-bang-theory-150409

Howard’s got himself a brother! That’s pretty cool, I always love when there’s some development in the characters outside the main duo. This has potential, I can’t wait to see what they’ll do with it.

Amy and Sheldon have their first sleep over… on a blanket fort on the living room, but hey, it’s better than nothing and it will involve both of them in their pajamas, so…

Wil Wheaton is back, man, that guy is always funny. Penny and Leonard’s fight however, not so much. The initial argument, about her having a job now, I can tolerate. The second one, about her making way more money than him… bah! I see his point, man, he studied all his life, it’s not the same as Bernadette and Howard, where she makes more than him, but she has a PhD and he doesn’t. Here, Leonard has studied so much, and still Penny makes twice what he does?! He can’t believe it. And I can’t believe what he said… Poorly done!
