My Mad Fat Diary Series 2 [Spoilers]

Okay, so maybe I was in a slump after seeing The National live. I also tendered my resignation a week ago so I’ve been pretty comfortable the past week to the point of not showering (shhh) for a day. I’m gross and that’s okay! But after seeing that Brooklyn Nine-Nine episode about getting over a slump, I decided to write short book reviews (see previous posts :P) and here I am facing my fear and I know I am going to write about it soon so why prolong my agony – My Mad Fat Diary Series 2.

cool as fuck

Waiting for series 2 is equal parts painful and exciting. Since last season they left us barely anything, I wished for more Rae x Finn. Continue reading

Current TV Obsession: Whodunnit?

Want to play detective? Then get on the Whodunnit? bandwagon and solve the latest reality television mystery!

whodunnit abc

Whodunnit? is a murder mystery reality show on ABC about a bunch of people trying to solve a murder mystery in the mansion each week. The person who gives the weakest explanation at the end of the episode gets killed (eliminated from the game).

Whodunnit? is so interesting to me although it’s so over the top and fake in so many ways. I really want to watch the whole season right now because there’s something weird about a reality show that isn’t based in any sort of reality. It’s campy as heck and punny and I love it, especially Giles the butler!

Something Old (Like Toying with My Feelings)

“You can’t cling to the past because no matter how tightly you hold on, it’s already gone.”

Ah, How I Met Your Mother. While I don’t appreciate things, especially works of fiction, playing with my emotions, tonight’s episode is difficult to ignore. Eight seasons later, I still don’t understand how Ted could be the most annoying and, at the same time, the wisest character of the show.

Did Steven Moffat write this episode? Because I have so many feels~ for a moment I thought I was watching Sherlock. Just kidding. Continue reading

Field Notes: Awkward.

I wanted to punch myself after this week’s episode of Awkward. because I am wrong, people! I am *so* wrong! I absolutely regret saying the show is bordering on corny. Forgive the sudden lack of interest. Note to self: don’t judge a show by its promos.

what the hell

All those who whine on Twitter about Awkward’s season feeling wrong are the WRONG ONES. It did not start with a bang, true, but episode 3 is a dagger to the heart. Cuts right in the feels, if you know what I mean. Time for bullet points!

  • Team Matty all the way although there was a point in the pilot where Matty became an annoying horndog and could not keep it in his pants. Manwhoremones, am I right?
  • Tamara looks hella fiiiiiiiine this season. Love the hair, the vibe, the EVERYTHING.
  • Jake and T are growing on me.
  • Valerie still holds the most hilarious person of the show award IMO.

nuts

  • Very excited for feisty Ming! She’s doing it(!) with whatshisname but they have to keep it a secret because Asian Mafia!
  • Ricky Schwartz is dead. Death by peanuts!
  • Sadie is broke.
  • She and Matty are growing pretty close. As a fan of the show, me gusta! But, as a loyal Jenna-Matty shipper, it’s baaaaaaaad. Really bad.
  • I think my favorite scene from this week’s episode is Jenna finally owning up to her feelings re: Matty.
Surprise, surprise!

Surprise, surprise!

When Matty says, “It’s always so easy with Jake, why is it not so easy with me?” I raised my #TeamMatty flag so high it was not even funny. That scene is my second favorite because of all the awkward feels.

It still annoys me how cute Sadie and Matty were on the phone. I am SO torn because I like Jenna and Matty. I think they’re super adorable and chill but it seems the writers are going in a different direction this season. Just. Don’t ruin everything, mmkay?

you're welcome

 

Thanks For The Tears, Doctor Who

I was not prepared for these feels. I always forget how Doctor Who gives you three or four fun adventures in a row and then BAM! RIPS YOUR HEART OUT AND STOMPS ON IT.

The Rings of Akhaten is oddly low on action and heavy on the boots. What REALLY tore me apart was Eleven’s climactic speech.

eleven

I have lost things you’ll never understand.

There he was, standing in front of a massive (literal) ball of fury, telling the old god of his memories, of the things he had seen, of his history as a Time Lord. I mean, the Doctor crying is the worst thing ever.

“because I have lived a life and I have seen a few things. I walked away from the last great time war, I marked the passing of the Time Lords. I saw the birth of the universe and I watched as time ran out, moment by moment until nothing remained. No time, no space, just me! I walked in universes where the law of physics were devised by the mind of a mad man. But I’ve watched universes freeze and creations burn, I have seen things you wouldn’t believe, I have lost things you’ll never understand. And I know things, secrets that must never be told, knowledge that must never be spoken. Knowledge that will make parasite gods blaze. So come on then, take it, take it all baby. Have it, you have it all.”

episode 7

Props to Matt Smith for pulling that off. Every emotional scene from his era, in my honest opinion, has been well done. The guy rocked the shit out of every episode involving a catastrophe of feelings. I think most Whovians prefer Nine or Ten but I have high hopes for Eleven and he has not let me down.

episode 7(2)

Clara is also growing on me like the precious thing she is. She’s spirited, intelligent, headstrong, and most importantly, she’s a mystery. Also (!) that bit she said to the fandom: I am not gonna compete with a ghost. It is like telling us all she’s not Amy Pond or Rose Tyler or Donna. She’s Clara Oswald, the girl with the most important leaf in human history.

Despite the intense drama we clearly don’t need (not this time, Moffat) The Rings of Akhaten is definitely one of my favorite episodes. What did you guys think about it?
