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):

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!

Movie of the Week: The Theory of Everything

movie_2

Wow, what a beautiful movie, gorgeous, well done… loved it. The Theory of Everything, the adaptation of Jane Hawking’s memoir Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen, is such an amazing movie, about the life of Stephen Hawking and his first wife Jane, through the success of his career is physics and the dealings with his disease.

Have I mention how amazing this movie is? It’s heartwarming and heartbreaking all at once. Watching how the amazing Stephen Hawking defied all expectations, personal and professional, it’s amazing. How he converted a 2 years life expectancy, to a full life, with two marriages, 3 kids and such an historic career in his field. And what about Jane?! What a strong, intelligent and fierce woman!

The casting is perfect. Eddie Redmayne was born to play this part, his physical transformation is beyond anything I could expect. At times, one wonders who are we actually seeing on screen: Eddie or Stephen? I’m still to watch Birdman, but I honestly don’t think that anyone could have done better than Eddie this year – playing a character whom we all know, who is still alive and so very present in our day to day, and doing it so amazingly, should be worthy of that Oscar for Best Actor.

Felicity Jones is amazing in this as well, although not as much as Eddie (it would be hard). Actually, I think they chose the cast perfectly. All and all, loved it, I think I will return to see it again, though the next time I do, I have to remember to bring a bunch of paper tissues… the crying was strong ;-).

“The Theory of Everything” trailer

The trailer for the new Stephen Hawking’s biopic is out and it looks amazing! This is a man that deserves to be celebrated in every way known to man.

The movie premieres somewhere between November and January, but unfortunately Spain has not a release date yet… with Eddie Redmayne, Felicity Jones and David Thewlis, this is a movie that promises to bring on the tears… if you don’t believe me, check out the trailer below, and tell me exactly how you fell when Hawking (Eddie Redmayne) falls face first on the floor.
