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.

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!

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.

Selfie (basically) cancelled by ABC

ABC has decided not to order more episodes of the freshman comedy, which basically means that Selfie is as good as dead!

I’m bummed about this, 6 episodes in and I was really enjoying it, the show was getting better with each episode, and I really wished we could see more of those carathers… oh well… 😦

Falls first impressions

We’re already in October… time does fly by… the last 2 weeks were full of TV shows, new and returning, premieres. So, what do you think of the new shows?

Gotham

Gotham (1)Only saw the pilot so far (2nd episode is on my waiting list).

Seems pretty cool, though I don’t know if they’ll be able to keep the pace and story interesting. Only time will tell, I guess.

Still, a superhero inspired tv show is always a must see.

  

Scorpion

Loved the pilot.scorpion

Again, episode 2 is on my waiting list (mondays and tuesdays are very complicated, busy days).

Again, don’t know if they’ll be able to keep the same rhythm as the pilot, but I liked the characters a lot, and I fell like the show has a lot of potential… just hope they’ll let it shine.

   

Selfie

279529-1So… I’m not the biggest Karen Gillan fan (sad, but true). I do love John Cho though…

I liked the pilot, I think that maybe they could have not made everything so “big”, but I guess that was the whole  point. I fell some chemistry there between Gillan and Cho, and I really hope that they get some good material in the next episodes…

Another confession… why is Karen’s voice so annoying at times?!

   

Manhattan Love Story

mannThis one I had very low expectations for, but, surprisingly, I liked it.

If they tone down the voice overs just a little, the show might actually work…

  

Forever

forever_I’ve said it before in this blog… I’ll be watching it! Love it! And it keeps getting better, the third episode was just amazing (and he didn’t even die!).

I do hope the numbers pick up a bit, I really don’t want to get my heart broken by this show’s cancellation…

    

Red Band Society

4510357_GSo… I really like this show.

I think it has some problems (such as: didn’t we see Kara’s parents of the pilot?!), I love Charlie, but his “in between” scenes are weird sometimes.

Love Leo, the kid has a bright future ahead of him in the acting business.

Let’s just hope they don’t overdo the drama and it becomes a second Glee…

   

The Mysteries of Laura

MV5BMjA1NjUyNDk0OV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNDM1ODM3MjE@._V1_SY317_CR1,0,214,317_AL_I saw the pilot and was not convinced, still, the premise is interesting enough so I watched the second episode and wow, it got a lot better.

Just hope it keeps up in that general direction, I would hate to see Debra Messing’s show get cancelled.

    

   

How to Get Away With Murderhow-to-get-away-with-murder-poster

Shonda Rhimes… I don’t know… seriously. I’ll give another few weeks because I’m really curious as to why you introduce 4 central characters of a show as killers and/or people who would cover up a murder.

It’s really hard to watch a 45 minute show when you truly don’t even like anyone on your screen… I was expecting better, but I’ll wait and see.

ABC’s “Selfie”

ABC has picked up Karen Gillan’s Selfie! The show is about a self-obsessed 20-something woman who is more concerned with “likes” than being liked. The show also stars John Cho.

The trailer doesn’t look that bad, it does look like a movie trailer instead of a sitcom… but we’ll see. Karen’s accent tho, I dont know how she’s going to pull off an entire series. And I’m really curious to see how they’re going to work around her hair. I love John Cho, and I wish Karen the best (although she was never my favorite Pond), let’s at least hope that it does better than Super Fun Night!
