With only one episode left before Arrow‘s midseason hiatus, everything is finally coming together… but also falling apart. Let me start at the beginning: Amidst a very foreshadowing lightning storm — The Flash. Get it? — Brother Blood’s first successful super soldier broke into a Queen Consolidated warehouse. Although Quentin and his men couldn’t quite piece together the crime scene, they were in luck. The new guy in town might suck at making it to train stations on time, but he’s one heck of a brainiac. Everyone, meet Barry Allen. Barry, meet everyone. READ FULL STORY

Just like Klaus, I think we should begin with a toast. However, I’m raising my Diet Coke to Marcel’s scarf, Klaus’ evil smirk, and all things family, while Klaus was raising his glass to immortality. Plus, let’s be real: I’m not nearly as poetic as one Klaus Mikaelson. Those words and that accent? That man was born to rule. READ FULL STORY
Considering that one very important theme of this episode was confession, I thought it was only fitting that I join in. Unlike Rebekah, my confession has nothing to do with lying, betraying, or conspiring against my own blood, but it has everything to do with siding with the “bastard brother.” Right about now, I have as many feels as Klaus did in that final scene. If I could do the single tear thing right about now, I would.
But alas, I am not Klaus, even though I find myself loving him more and more with each passing week. So forgive me, Father, for I have sinned… if sinning means siding with Klaus and having dirty thoughts about Elijah and a bathtub. Then again, if that’s the case, I sin pretty much every Tuesday. Let’s dive in! READ FULL STORY
Love triangles on television are equal parts frustrating and entertaining. Many times, they’re the reason we tune in and also the reason we spend the next hour screaming at the characters involved. But there’s one particular type of love triangle that’s a little more complicated than others. I like to call it the brotherly love triangle.
The brotherly love triangle — two brothers fighting over the same woman — is particularly popular among supernatural shows at the moment. The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, and Witches of East End all contain a little brotherly love at the center of their stories. By making two sides of a triangle related, you increase the stakes. The familial aspect aside, there are multiple relationships at risk, both between the woman and each brother, as well as between the brothers themselves. Plus, the competitiveness between siblings always ups the ante.
With Reign being the newest show to join the brotherly love trend, I think it has a little bit to learn from say, The Vampire Diaries, which has done it so well for five years. Only five episodes into Reign‘s debut season, the love triangle is starting to feel a bit rushed, which, if the show isn’t careful, could damage its shipper component.

This week, my Tuesday and Wednesday nights looked eerily similar, and not just because I was sitting on my couch eating Chinese food and watching television.
On Tuesday’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the team headed to Russia to defuse a very large, very dangerous weapon. The very next night, my Arrow peeps discovered they needed to rescue one of their own from — what do ya know? — Russia. Plus, by the end of Arrow‘s hour, I was listening to talk of a serum that could be used to create an army of super soldiers. For a second, I was positive I was back in the S.H.I.E.L.D. universe talking about Centipede. But I wasn’t! I was on a boat in the middle of the ocean — in the middle of a universe where “superheroes” didn’t exist. What was happening?!
So after I realized that these were, in fact, two very different shows, one of which lives in the Marvel universe (S.H.I.E.L.D., obviously) and the other in DC Comics, I started to get a very bad headache. Not to mention that while reacting to both shows, I now have to deal with an annoying number of period-filled acronyms — S.H.I.E.L.D., A.R.G.U.S., H.I.V.E — not cool, guys. Basically, after having this realization, I only had one option: A compare-and-contrast, seventh-grade-style.

After that hour of television, I have two dominant thoughts/feelings. 1) I have always loved Olicity, but I didn’t fully understand my love of them until about six minutes ago, and I am IN. 2) Does anyone else watch both Arrow and S.H.I.E.L.D.? Because between trips to Russia, super serums, and acronym that use a bunch of periods, I’m starting to get deja vu. And if you don’t watch S.H.I.E.L.D., ignore that sentence, and let’s get into some Russian business. READ FULL STORY
I mean, honestly. Could this show get any hotter?! As if the Klaus and Marcel of it all wasn’t enough, now Tyler’s showing up and Elijah is rocking full on casual attire?! I’m talking jeans, people. Not even a suit jacket this week. Is it just me, or do normal people clothes really set off his cheekbones? Let’s get to it! READ FULL STORY
The Tomorrow People are the next step in evolution. I get that. They are graced with the powers of telepathy, teleportation, and telekineses. I sort of get that. But when the show throws more powers my way, I get a little lost. Yes, superpowers are awesome, and I love them, but that doesn’t mean I always understand what’s happening.
Example A) When John and Stephen took on Killian earlier this season, the duo found themselves in a quite literally explosive situation. In order to stop a bomb, John and Stephen somehow had to cut six wires at exactly the same time. The trick: The wires were all in different locations within the room.

This summer, I took it upon myself to binge-watch a number of new shows. It’s not a choice I regret, but it’s one that has made life this fall even busier than normal. Instead of having one show a night and three on Thursdays, I have multiple shows each night and five on Thursdays. It’s a beautiful, very time-consuming addiction. So when I went to plan out my DVR schedule, I didn’t originally include The Tomorrow People. My Wednesdays were already full with Arrow, Modern Family, and Nashville. Luckily enough, however, there weren’t any conflicts with me recording The Tomorrow People and considering it already came on right after Arrow, what was the big deal, right? Right. So I gave the pilot a chance. READ FULL STORY
