This Week on TV (13 – 19 April)

Jane the Virgin: Chapter 18

Jane-the-Virgin-season-1-episode-18-4

The most lasting relationship on this show: Rafael and his cell phone! Seriously people… why are you messing this up, my heart break a little each time Rafael and Jane share a screen lately, I want them all lovey-dovey again.

Ok, I’m crying here, Rafael? Really? You want a break? Heartbreaking!!!

What’s up with Andie? Seriously?! Is she totally crazy?!

Roman is in the house! Can’t wait to see his reasoning for killing his own brother.

   

Scorpion: Cliffhanger

1.21i

Wow… talk about nailing a title for an episode!

They will all make their peace, right? Cabe is not really leaving, right? Paige will go back on her word and get back to Scorpion, right???? And more importantly, Walter is ok… right?! He’s freaking ok, right?

   

iZombie: Flight of the Living Dead

zmb105a0234bjpg-7823cd_624w

First things first: oh yeah Lowell!!! They played his introduction so damn well, revealing that he’s a fellow zombie at just the right time, and so smoothly that Liv forgot to even question the basics, such as how did it happen, or how does he feed, the only thing she cares about is that he’s really cute and looking for a date! – I totally get you, girl!

Turns out there are a lot more zombies out there, and in high places… yeah, even the chief of police…. they’re everywhere.

Speaking of zombies and dates, Major takes a major kick down from a zombie, the last we see of him he’s unconscious at the skate park, bleeding all over. The next scene is Lowell asking Liv out on a date and a new corpse appearing at the morgue… my heart stopped, at this moment I thought for sure that Major was the one lying on that gurney, maybe coming back as a zombie or whatever, but no, no word yet on how he left that park, but it seems that he’s alive for now… major sigh of relief!

Have I mention that I really like Lowell?! Yeah, and It took me way too long to recognize him… shame on me! Oh Arthur, I mean, Bradley James, I really missed you on my screen!

Also… Ryan Hansen!!!

   

The Flash: All-Star Team-Up

8251e1b4eafc49f2c916ea240cbaa318

Poor Eddie, I was never so sorry about the poor man. He’s in trouble with Iris because he’s keeping secrets about Barry, at Joe’s request. So she moves in into the house where Joe lives with Barry, living Eddie all alone.

I do like the new dynamic between Eddie and Barry though, the new crime-fighting trio is amazing.

“It’s like I’m dating Barry, but in Oliver’s body”… oh man, Felicity, when are you gonna learn to keep your mouth shut?! But she’s so adorable!!!

Also, does she and Ray always have to be touching?! It creeps me out!

How is Cisco having daydreams about something that never actually happened?!

   

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

shield-melinda002

Poor Melinda… this episode really makes you feel for her. She had so much live before that incident and then it’s like it got all sucked away from her. 😦

So Skye now knows about her story, her parents, her birth, etc, and Lincoln realizes that Raina has another power… she has visions of the freaking future. Well done Raina.

Best 2 minutes of the episode are the last ones. Fitz is able to open Fury’s toolbox and communicates with Coulson and Hunter, and Hunter talks him through ditching his tailing detail… great 😀 !!!

Even if Coulson is setting up a new base for powered people, Melinda knows better than not to trust him, right? He’s the director, he’s bound to have some secrets…

   

Weird Loners: Weirded Out

WeirdLoners_1AXS05_1280x720_428053059829

Still not convinced… at all…

    

Arrow: Broken Arrow

Goodbye-600x337

I just want to kick Lance’s ass so damn much, how dare he? Destroying the foundry like that?! And the love fern?! OMG!!!

Laurel however, just keeps getting higher on my consideration.

Oliver and Ray “team up” in one of the best things ever. Oliver teaching Ray how to be a hero is priceless. The hint that Palmer and Felicity might be related?! Oh Ollie, you jealousy is showing.

Damn it Felicity! “You’re the man that I believe in”? Really? How hard would it be to say “the man I love”?!

Oh Roy… I will miss you most of all as well… I cried so much when he showed up at the foundry, even though I knew it was going to happen.

I really hate Ra’s al Ghoul right now (though I admit that I hate Lance just a tad more).

     

Supernatural: Book of the Damned

SN1018B-239b

I so want to see the Winchesters on a beach somewhere, with sand between their toes…  please, make it happen!

Charlie’s back, bitches! Oh yeah! Better than that is Charlie and Castiel being “besties”, seriously, I did not know how much I needed it before it actually happened.

Oh Sammie… Rowena?! Are you out of your damn mind?

   

Criminal Minds: A Place at the Table

Criminal-Minds-A-Place-at-the-Table-Season-10-Episode-20-02

Poor Hotchner… is it not enough that he will never be able to forgive himself about Hailey’s death, but having his father-in-law rubbing it in his face… poor guy! Still, no doubt that he’s an amazing guy.

I need more Reid with Penelope, ASAP!

    

Young & Hungry: Young & Old

4

Such a funny episode… poor Gaby just keeps messing things up.

   

The Big Bang Theory: The Communication Deterioration

The-Big-Bang-Theory-The-Communication-Deterioration-Season-8-Episode-21-07

I’m glad that Penny got out again of the whole acting gig, they should not get down that road before.

I’m also very glad that Raj and Leonard had a storyline about themselves.

This Week on TV (6 – 12 April)

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

yh_5

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!

This Week on TV (23-29 Mar)

23mar_1

Scorpion: Young Hearts Spark Fire

Young-Hearts-Spark-Fire-2-600x347

While trying to rescue a group of hikers from a mountain, team Scorpion’s helicopter crashes, eventually causing a wildfire. While Sylvester stays behind with the pilot, the rest of the team goes and tries to find the hikers.

My favorite bits of this episode involved Toby. First, Toby diagram with the explanation on why he knows that Walter is in love Paige, to which Walter denies (though not very convincingly). Then there’s all those wonderful interactions between Toby and Happy… after their kiss last week, he’s acting all protective of her (though she thinks it’s annoying) and ends up telling her that he’s in love with her. I was so glad that she did not run!!!!

   

The Flash: Rogue Time

TheFlashRogueTime

After the all the distress that was last week, when Barry finds himself on the day before, he decides to change a few things up and arrest the Weather Wizard before he’s able to do any real damage. Dr. Wells warns him of the consequences, but really how could this day be any worse than the previous one?!

Well, Captain Cold and Heat Wave return (with Cold’s sister), they kidnap Cisco and his brother and force him to disclose the Flash’s true identity. Meanwhile Barry, so sure now of Iris feelings, decides to make a HUGE move on her, only to be punched by Eddie – sorry dude, but you totally deserved that!

In the end Barry has a talk with Cold, where he considers that he doesn’t have to kill people to get what he wants and then he decides to relocate… all very civil! I get why they did this, they’re clearly paving the way for the new show, but although I can comprehend that Cold doesn’t really have to hurt people, he really likes to be in control, I don’t see Heatwave playing by the same rules… so it will be definitely fun to watch how that plays out.

There was a nice parallel between Cisco and Well’s talk this week and the last. In both Well’s told Cisco that he saw him as a son and was proud of him, but this week he did not kill him!!! Hurray for that! He does kill someone though, Iris’s boss, which leads Barry to suspect that something is up with Wells. Well done Barry, it only took you 16 episodes!!!!

By the way, the time in which Cisco can build 3 extremely different guns out of someone’s house – not a lab – is amazing… more over if you consider that one of those guns fires gold (?!).

   

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Love in the Time of Hydra

Agents-of-SHIELD-Love-in-the-Time-of-Hydra-4-1024x592

Remember when we were all worrying about Mac when he was stuck in the city?! Oh, well, not I’m wishing he had died right away, maybe that way we could have kept Tripp. The “Real SHIELD” unveiled itself this week to Hunter, they say that stand for truth and honesty and transparency, Coulson, like Fury, keeps way too many secrets and that’s not how SHIELD should run.

Hunter (luckily) is having none of it – I always liked Hunter, but now I love him, and I can’t believe how Mac and Morse are acting… though I still have a slight hope that Morse is indeed a double agent and that she will side with Coulson in the end. Hunter managed to escape this new SHIELD, though he’s unable to contact Coulson.

After May and Coulson talk, he decides to bring Skye to a secure and secret location, where she can be safe and work on her powers… she feels like she’s in prison, but really, amazing timing. Simmons delivers Coulson a new pair of gloves for Skye, that will minimize the effects of her powers, but she’s feeling conflicted about it. Fitz, for his hand, thinks that there’s nothing wrong with Skye, or him for that matter, the real one on the wrong there is Simmons, she has given up to her fears and insecurities and is too much changed. He’s so on the nose with this one, Simmons IS changed for the worst and her new behavior unfortunately falls right in line with the new SHIELD.

The Ward and Agent 33 storyline was just plain weird… I liked that it involved Talbot, but that was it… I found it utterly dispensable.

    

Arrow: Suicidal Tendencies

arrow-image-suicidal-tendencies-brandon-routh-david-ramsey

Now I’m officially not getting Felicity, I mean, she’s right with all that “I want someone who’s not afraid to be happy”, but after Ray doubted her in that way, I was a little disappointed that she did not give him any crap – she has no trouble doing so with Oliver, so why was she so ready to be all lovey dovey with Ray?!

They better start fixing it!

I get that Captain Lance is hurt with his daughter and everything, he has the right to be, but he’s going a bit off the rails…

And Maseo?! WTF?! Now you’re imitating the Arrow too?! I’m so disappointed, I like(d) him so much.

I will miss Deadshot!

Diggle and Lila’s wedding was wonderful, but I wish we could have seen a bit more of it… maybe Oliver’s best man speech?! Felicity catching the bouquet and glancing at Ollie?!

   

Law & Order: SVU: Parole Violations

150317_2853484_Parole_Violations_anvver_1

This week the episode dealt with the abuse and power that Parole Officers have upon the parolees, it finally introduced some background and family for Carisi and dealt with the fact that men can be raped by women.

I don’t think they had ever gone there in 17 years, and I’m so glad they finally did. Rape in itself is a taboo, but somehow, when it’s the fact that men can in fact be raped by women, there’s more than a taboo, there’s a huge disbelief. Not so long ago I was having a talk with my mother (highly intelligent and liberal woman) and we were talking about rape and for some reason I brought up this particular subject (men being raped by women) and she (intelligent, worldly woman) said that she did not think it was possible for such a thing to happen… So I’m glad that they finally took on a case that not only shows that it happens, it can happen, and unfortunately how unlikely it is to be acknowledge.

   

Supernatural: Paint it Black

supernatural-recap

How can they still put a new spin on old ghost stories still amazes me. Dean, confession, church and nuns?! Funny as usual.

   

Criminal Minds: Rock Creek Park

CM_RedRockCreek_SG_2

The case this week was a bit f* up, even though it wasn’t at all creepy or weird or deadly. But the fact that those 2 people had such a twisted view of things… wow…

But there’s only one thing that matters in this episode (besides the fact that Kate is already showing), was that little bit in the end… REID GOT A DATE!!!! I’m so happy for him!!!

This week on TV (4-6 Feb)

Here’s the rest of last week…

4-6_feb

Arrow (Uprising):

ArrowUprising-640x426

Oliver Queen finally made it back to Starling City, our favorite team finally got rid of Brick in the Glades and a weird alliance was formed between Oliver and Malcolm Merlyn.

The only thing I can say about this episode it that it really let me down… man, this small “trilogy” deserved a better ending.

First thing, what’s up with the timeline on this episode?! How far is Oliver? Because he manages to get there (in suit) at about the same time that all the others get there… weird.

I love Sin, I think that she was a great carather to have around for Sara, because it grounded her, I liked that she was the one to tell Lance that the Canary is not Sara, but doesn’t she know that Roy is the guy in the red suit?

Speaking of Roy/Arsenal, at least Lance knows who he is… Lance knows, Thea knows… how exactly don’t they know that Oliver is the one in green?

WTF?! So, Diggle is second on communications and not on the field? What’s up with that?! He’s better than Laurel any day of the week.

Why get Wildcat back?! So they could kill him?! Or almost kill him… not sure what happened there…

I love Tatsu, that said, she could just have come with Oliver to Starling and helped him do what he needs to do… she has mad skills.

Do we talk about Malcolm’s wig…?!?!?!?

When the Arrow got to the Glades, Team Arrow was there, right? So how come they watch his speech from the Arrow cave? And that’s all the reaction we get? How about some tears people?

I get why Oliver made a deal with Merlyn, what I don’t get is why Felicity (who is such a smart woman) didn’t even gave him a chance to explain the reality of the situation. I’m not saying that she doesn’t have her reasons to not jump into his arms – although her justification did not justify it – I’m saying that one thing doesn’t have anything to do with the other. So, she dreamed things could be different between them, ok, nobody said they couldn’t, maybe she should have let the guy explain that he doesn’t want to be dead, he doesn’t want to see his family and friends dead with him… just saying…

That said, I still love Felicity, obviously, but she needs to chill.

    

Criminal Minds (Hero Worship):

I love any episode that is Reid related. But please tell me that Dylan Einstein, the Forensic specialist will be making a return? Please… if she returns into Reid’s arms, I won’t complaint…

  

Law & Order: SVU (Decaying Morality):

tumblr_njh3d2iPNT1spk0aco2_1280

Finally got my SVU in day and this episode is seriously messed up…

   

Baby Daddy (Over My Dead Bonnie):

baby_daddy_watch_first_s4_ep6_1907463093

Funny as usual, but I was beginning to wonder how much longer they would drag us through the potential something between Riley and Danny, while Ben was pretty much on to it. This was the episode, a heartbroken Ben finally broke up with his girlfriend, because she made his brother more of a priority than him… wow… Ben is usually the guy who’s unaware of stuff, but in this he was spot on… poor guy. And Riley?! Her defense was “I’ve been in love with you so long that I never thought about my feelings for Danny”… outch!

    

The Big Bang Theory (The Troll Manifestation):

The Troll Manifestation

That was a surprise. Throughout the whole episode I thought it would be one of Sheldon’s nemesis, or Wil Wheton messing with him, but it turned out to be the great Stephen Hawking! WOW!

I would kill for Sheldon’s mad ability of writing and publishing a paper overnight… kill I say!

Also, Amy’s fanfiction!!! OMG!!! We will never unsee that!

big-bang-theory-02

This week on TV (7-13Dec)

7-13dez

Brooklyn Nine-Nine: The show continues funny as ever (despite not being worthy of a Golden Globe, apparently), but that last scene, when Rosa is all smiles, just warms my heart.

Jane the Virgin: Wow, the show got me a little scared for a moment there. Stuff was being revealed, sparks were flying all over, and now Rafael knows Jane is a virgin and Jane knows that Rafael was willing to lose everything for her… wow… and then some more sparks literally flew. Rogelio is the funniest character on the show, he just cracks me up.

The Big Bang Theory: What a sweet and funny Christmas episode.  I love how they keep advancing Sheldon and Amy’s relationship with baby steps and very naturally.

Selfie: Wow, what a great episode this was. Karen Gillian and John Cho really gave their all in this episode. I do hope that through some sort of Christmas miracle, the show is picked up for some network… seriously, it’s the best new sitcom of the year (for me), how could they have cancelled is beyond me. Eliza’s karaoke and drunken state broke my heart.

251d8102969b47a6c7d25f64dd03ac97-selfie-delivered-more-drama-than-expected-in-imperfect-harmony

Scorpion: Am I the only one who thinks that Sylvester and Megan are going to have a thing?! Either way, I ship it! What I don’t ship is Walter with anyone who isn’t Paige… when Agent Simone Taylor goes in for the kiss, I literally covered my eyes… no, no and no!

Supernatural: Wow, this mid-season finale has everyone! Castiel tries to help his vessel daughter (who is great by the way and I hope appears more often), he enlists the help of the brothers. It’s great that we had a Destiel moment, we hadn’t had one of those in a while, where Dean tells Cas that he’s not ok, and if things turn bad, he wants him to kill him (even if Sam tries to stop him, which he will). Things don’t end well though, with Dean killing a bunch of guys to feed the Mark and Sammy desperately pleading with his brother… sad… Meanwhile, in hell, the King a.k.a. Crowley, a.k.a. Fergus, has a bonding moment with his mommy, a.k.a. the superwitch Rowena… this will be fun!

xjimmy-and-his-girl-supernatural.jpg.pagespeed.ic.3xtdYpiISxfJWK3cBVmB

Forever: We finally found the identity of the mysterious caller, after he turned Henry’s life into a living hell. I thought for sure that he would tell Jo about his condition… oh well…

Criminal Minds: What a twisted, sick episode… It seriously gets to me that after 10 years they can still tell these creepy stories. It was a great episode, I’m sad that Aaron and Beth broke up, but it was predictable given that she hasn’t been around and it was lovely to see Rossi worried about his friends and making him go out and meet new people.

This week on TV

sh_jtv_spn

Sleepy Hollow: Is it OK not to like Katrina?

Castle: It was nice to see an Esposito episode, I have missed those.

Jane the Virgin: I’m pretty sure I’m team Rafael, Jane and Rafael just make the cutest couple. And also, Michael wasted no time at all to get the “waiting time” back…

2 Broke Girls: Is it just me or the writers are not very sure in which way to take the show? Last year it was the whole “pastry school” debacle and now Max doesn’t even has a name for her project?! HHHmmm… I’m pretty sure that if it wasn’t for Kat Dennings this wouldn’t even be worth it… Granted, Caroline is more tolerable this season.

Scorpion: Can Toby and Happy get together? Like, now?! I’m so happy that he was finally able to tell her how he feels.

State of Affairs: Why am I starting to think that the person sending those messages is Charlie’s former boyfriend?

The Flash: Eddie on pain meds is just hilarious, could we see more of him?! Pretty please? Also, was it just me or Caitlin and Barry shared some kind of moment (3 times)? Are they playing some kind of “Felicity” card here? Not that I mind, I would rather see him with Caitlin than with Iris anyway…

Supernatural: Am I the only one sad that Hannah is gone? I really liked her with Castiel and that kiss left room for a lot more (I’m not even going to talk about his face when she got naked in front of him…). Also, didn’t they just deliver the BEST WTF moment in a long long time with that final scene?!

Criminal Minds: So… Rossi has not only a daughter, but also a grandkid?! =D

2014/15-TVshows Week planning!

The season of 2014/15 TVshows is officially open! There are so many shows, that sometimes it’s hard to keep track when each one airs, so, here is how my week looks in terms of shows that I watch and intend to follow this season (some I still have to catch up, but I’ll get there)…

Calendar

Criminal Minds: Angels & Demons

The 9th season of Criminal Minds came to an end yesterday, and I have to say that this was probably my favorite season to date, and the last couple of episodes just blew my mind!

The team goes to investigate the murder of 3 prostitutes, only to find themselves amidst a coverup and a rogue and corrupt police force. It’s an amazing couple of episodes, with a lot of great guest stars, a few things you will not see coming and a lot of bullets! Everyone’s life is at stake! That said, Reid is shot in the neck, Morgan is shot 2 times in his vest and one time in his arm, Hotch gets punched around and JJ and Garcia both save the day (on different places)!

This is an example of this that are not OK and that the show should never, ever, do again:

reid_criminalminds

Spencer Reid almost dying is not OK, ever! Please never do this again… not my precious pretty boy…

reid_criminalminds2

That said, Reid ending up in the hospital allowed Garcia to be an awesome friend, and adorned his hospital room with Doctor Who related things: 2 little Daleks and the 10th and 11th Doctor figurines.

After this, Blake and Rossi have an amazing exchange, where Rossi tells her about a supposedly good day, that ended up being the worst day, because he was so focused on work that his wife left him. This, after Reid’s shooting, leaves her wondering.

Then Garcia saved the day, by saving Reid and shooting a bad guy… the look of panic in her face was priceless!

They manage to take down the corrupt cop and his operation and they all return home. Blake takes Reid home and explains to him that her son died at the age of 9, of an unknown neurologic disorder, and that it still haunts her, and he, Ethan, would have grown up to be just like Reid. She leaves, leaving behind her FBI credentials… Goodbye Alex Blake, I will miss you! I liked you even more than Prentiss…

Dr Spencer Reid in shorts… best moment of my week!

I had a few episodes of Criminal Minds to watch, so I decided that today was the day and I’m so glad I did! Rabid (S09E18) gave me the first moment of pure TV joy since that horrible HIMYM series finale, it gave us Reid and Garcia training for a physical test (that it turned out, they didn’t need to take), and the marvelous shot of Dr. Spencer Reid running in super short shorts!!!! =D

And I have to say, Matthew Gray Gubler has a great pair of legs… and other things… (full disclosure, I have an huge crush on this guy!).
