Scorpion: Crossroads

scorpion-episode-20

I can’t believe that Toby messed that up! Happy was gorgeous, wearing a dress, heels and even perfume, and Toby fell asleep?! What a shame… and I do hope she gives him another chance before the end of the season, I hope they do not drag this much longer, at least one of the couples deserves something good.

About Walter, I’m so glad he finally admitted somehow to Toby and himself that he’s in love with Paige, but talk about bad timing, right?!

    

Castle: Habeas Corpse

-1635ca2bea6a3138

Best part of the episode was, hands down, Esposito and Ryan practicing their dance moves. It’s also great to see how close Alexis and Beckett have gotten.

    

iZombie: The Exterminator

la-et-st-izombie-recap-the-exterminator-20150331

This week Liv consumed the brain of a hitman, someone who showed no emotions or sympathies… so she spends the whole episode not reacting to things… obviously when the effects wear off, she fells everything and is a bit overwhelmed… poor Liv!

She and Ravi find a new zombie, her friend from Med School, but there’s a catch, this zombie hasn’t eaten since she was transformed, so she’s full zombie and Ravi wonders if he feeds her, if she will return to her more Liv-like undead state. It doesn’t work and she almost kills Ravi, and Liv, haven eaten the brain with no emotions, takes a bit too long to save him, but she eventually does, and all is well, except that she killed a person… not good!

Meanwhile, what the hell is Blaine doing with those kids? Is he eating them?! Or transforming them?! We might need some answers… soon!

Liv always has the most amazing things to say, “Are you cool with naming our trivia team Piggy And The Brain?”… enough said!

   

The Flash: Tricksters

The-Flash-970x545

Casting the original Trickster as The Trickster was a stroke of genius, specially integrating so well he’s age and the new one.

Then there the big matter, Barry doesn’t know how to trust Wells and spends the episode pulling back, until finally realizing that for the time being he needs to trust him somehow. This, and in order to protect Iris, Barry reveals himself to Eddie, and he and Joe ask Eddie’s help in keeping her safe, to which he agrees. So now, Eddie knows the secret too! And so the plot thickens… right now, Iris is the only one left in the dark. That was a definitely change in these kind of plots… generally the actual boyfriend doesn’t know that her BFF/future something is in fact the superhero.

We also got a bit of a backstory to Harrison Wells, or Eobard Thawne, because now that we know that the real Wells is indeed dead, is weird to call him that, right? Does that thingy means that he can change his appearance again if he chooses to?!

    

Forever: Punk is Dead

3944172_forever-punk-is-dead-roundtable--photos_7a26bc05_m

David Krumholts as younger Abe was a perfect casting, just perfect!

I don’t see Jo and Isaac together… it just seems weird, I don’t see any chemistry there, at all.

The best part of the show for me continues to be Joel David Moore as Lucas… he’s great!

A lot of the “science” in this episode made very dubious, like after hydration, I have my well founded doubts that the body would look so “fresh”. Also, getting a DNA sample just like that in a body that has been inside a wall for over 20 years, mummified and hydrated?! Damn, I know of better preserved samples in which obtaining DNA of any kind is much harder…

   

Cougar Town: Mary Jane’s Last Dance

29GUIDE2-master675

And it’s over =( !!! Six seasons… I can’t believe it’s really over! The last episode was great, with everyone saying to Jules what they really feel about her… oh the tears!

   

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: One Door Closes

agents-of-shield-one-door-closes-gonzales-flashback

I maintain last week’s position, though not so firmly… The only thing good that Mac did was to save Fitz’s life, thank him for that, but everything else… well….

I love the flashbacks, there were a nice little tie-in to Captain America: the Winter Soldier, though, and even after hearing all those stories, I still can’t understand why these 5 people decided that theirs would be “the real SHIELD”… why?! Because they all get a vote? Not buying it!

I’m still convinced/hoping that Bobbie’s allianges are really to Coulson, especially because she insisted to go to get Skye, in order for them not to hurt her, though that quite didn’t work out like it was supposed to.

And how cool was that it was actually nice little Simmons who brought down Mockingbird?! Epic!

Speaking of Simmons, and Fitz, please tell me that they won’t get all wrapped up in this whole “real SHIELD” business, please?! I really want them to be on the same page and with Coulson.

Melinda May is my hero, ‘nough said!

It’s great that Skye is learning to control her powers, though having just wounded someone might be a step back. Now she off with Gordon, does that mean that she’s leaving the team? Going off the grid?!

Hunter is back! Man, I love that guy! From all the new characters, he’s my favorite, for sure. His exchange with Coulson by the end was hilarious, so now, finally, Hunter is a SHIELD agent!!!!

    

Arrow: Public Enemy

arrow-aresenal-arrow-black-canary

Wow, after a few bumps in the road, I feel that Arrow is getting on track again. Things are not looking good for Oliver.

After Maseo’s attack, the Mayor is dead and Ray is hurt. Felicity spends most of the episode on the episode looking after Ray, while I get why this is, I felt that she should have been with the team, but hey, we can’t have everything. On the plus side, she saves Ray’s life – which I’m glad, I like him – and he decides to tell her that he loves her. Well, this is Felicity, and this is her 3rd “I love you” to which she did not reply, this one though, she clearly didn’t feel the same and made some very weak excuses and left the room. Her mother, who sees right through her, tells her that the reason she did not say that she loves him back is because she doesn’t, she loves Oliver, and she’s got a choice to make. The fact that Ray knows the plot to the 34 seasons of Doctor Who left me super happy… point to Palmer!

Meanwhile, Lance issues a manhunt for the Arrow and Ra’s (being the little son of b****h that he is) helps the issue by telling him exactly who it is behind the mask… Oliver Queen! So Lance wastes no time at all and issues an arrest warrant for Oliver, who after running and putting every single person of his team in jeopardy, feels he has no other choice than to surrender. Team Arrow is not happy about this! But while John Diggle doesn’t know what to do next, Roy takes matters into his own hands, buts on the Arrow green uniform and presents himself to the police announcing that they have the wrong man! Roy Harper, you are officially my favorite member of that team right now!

Captain Lance needs to chill, seriously, it’s getting absurd! I wonder if somehow Sara is revived, if he will still feel the same about vigilantes. Accusing Oliver of being responsible for her joining the league?! Bah, he wasn’t to blame… His treatment of Laurel? Very bad! And hey, I did not like Laurel before, but man, she’s really growing on me and her father is being ridiculous.

    

Law & Order: SVU: Devastating Story

NUP_167536_0113  Law & order SVU Devastating Story Hagritay Morrow

It’s incredible how a lie can do much more harm than a thousand truths…

   

Supernatural: Inside Man

tumblr_nm785dadhd1rkfde2o1_500

Bobby’s back!!!

Dean and Crowley are bonding!!!

Sam and Castiel are keeping secrets from Dean and trying to break Metatron out of Heaven!!! And wow, did that turn around… Castiel and Sam are not kidding around.

Crowley finally threw Rowena out! Finally man!

Oh, I love this show!

   

The Big Bang Theory: The Skywalker Incursion

106186_wb_1237b

My inner geek was super happy about this episode, half of it is about George Lucas and Star Wars and the other half is about Doctor Who … wonderful. The fact that Penny actually watches Doctor Who, albeit forced by Leonard, lifts my spirits… and she pays attention too! Then there’s the whole Game of Thrones reference, priceless!

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!
