This is my sticky entry, because LJ is getting worse and worse about letting me actually update my own LJ. So after this previous week I decided I needed a sticky post because usually when LJ is not letting me make entries it will still let me make comments - ergo this is my comment post, because sometimes I just need an entry to vent my spleen so to speak and that always seems to happen when LJ refuses to work for me.

Basically this means that if you care and suddenly realize I haven't made an entry in a while (especially in the TV season when I usually at least make weekly episode review entries) read the comments on this entry because if I'm around but haven't been making entries then it's because LJ hasn't been letting me and I've been reduced to making comments on my own LJ to say what I want/need to say.

I kinda hope it won't ever be necessary for me to use this one, but based on recent history it probably will.

Yep this is what LJ has reduced me too - I'd actually consider leaving if I hadn't made this a perm account - if I want to use my own journal I have to comment to my own entries. *sigh*

Yes, it happens to be working right now, but I apparently can't count on that lasting.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Supernatural 9x17 Mother's Little Helper

So, this was delayed because I was sick when I watched the first time and I found myself really liking it, so I felt like I needed to watch again before trying to review it. Because I have noticed in the past that sometimes when I'm not feeling myself while watching something I will weirdly like it so much better than I otherwise would have.

Not this time, because even after a healthy rewatch I still liked it. More than that I kinda loved it.

Yes, I know there was some issues, but even then I still couldn't do anything other than sit back and bask in the fact that this is pretty much the first episode of Supernatural that I've truly loved and enjoyed since the middle of last season. Seriously, I remember the "old" days where I would rewatch episodes numerous times and that hasn't happened consistently since season six. So, apparently I don't care that this episode had some issues I'm just gonna like it.

Now I suspect since some of the things here will be plot-relevant later on that there will be some retro bitching. But right now all I can do is be all like "this is good and I liked it."

The Vampire Diaries 5x17 Rescue Me

Honestly, I've been trying to start this for awhile and I just can't come up with anything to say about the episode, except that (and I'm not sure why) but Jeremy came across as a big giant asshole to me. And apparently it was bad enough that it pretty much ruined the whole episode for me. When really outside of that I can't recall the episode being horrible.

Well, there was that one thing where I kept hoping Caroline had given a certain someone her blood, but that doesn't seem to have been the case.
(Because who didn't see that coming. Apparently, Caroline.)

I don't know perhaps I'll think of something more to say about the episode later, but probably not since I don't plan on rewatching it.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Day late, and always a dollar short, but here are my thoughts. They might surprise you given my overall feelings for certain things in this season and the previous one.

The Vampire Diaries 5x16 While You Were SleepingCollapse )
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Well lookie here LJ is finally going to let me post something other than a review of The Vampire Diaries, though I guess it could be because I do mention The Vampire Diaries rather heavily in this one. *grin*

The Originals 1x16 Farewell to StoryvilleCollapse )
 
 
 
 
 
 
Okay, it's weirdly looking like LJ is biased or something - for two weeks it's let me post my reviews of The Vampire Diaries, but for The Originals and Supernatural I've had to put them in my "various" thread.
(But then it won't let me edit and I always notice a mistake after posting *sigh*)

The Vampire Diaries 5x15 Gone GirlCollapse )
 
 
 
 
 
 
Well, lookie here - after several weeks and three reviews LJ is going to allow me to post this one instead of having to use my catch-all entry to post to my own journal. YAY! Of course, this is probably a one time thing, so...

The Vampire Diaries 5x14 No ExitCollapse )
 
 
 
 
 
 
So, I rewatched the recent three episodes last night and I believe that helped me work out why I'm so bothered by the way Sam is currently acting toward Dean, because it's not as though Sam doesn't have at least one valid reason to be angry. But taken as a whole I'm ultimately just not feeling that Sam's anger is justified (or at least the seeming extent of it is justified), and that was actually bothering me just a little bit.

No spoilers from unaired episodesCollapse )

And look at this - apparently making my sticky catch-all post was exactly what was needed, because since making that LJ hasn't even attempted to lock me out of posting.
 
 
 
 
 
 
(I don't have a proper Supernatural icon for my thoughts here, so just pretend the one attached to this entry says - "All Was Well - (But my Supernaturalmania ended up pretty damaged for that to happen.) - because that seems to be the direction Carver wants to take with Supernatural.)

You know - I was wrong in my review I said Carver had made Sam Sally (Sally from Being Human who even after having been turned into a flesh eating zombie and yet managing to come back from that has learned nothing - everyone keeps trying to tell her she needs to stop and think about her actions before you know acting, but she never does or at least hasn't yet), but that's mostly because I was comparing one Carver show to another, which upon reflection isn't really correct. No, Sam is more like Rebekah from The Originals, though not exactly because Rebekah isn't trying to emotionally manipulate her brothers into becoming different people - she's just wanting to take the pound of flesh from them that they've taken from her. What? It's not any healthier, but it does seem somehow more honest than what's currently going on between Dean and Sam on Supernatural.

Some spoilers from recent episodes of The Originals and Supernatural - no spoilers from unaired episodesCollapse )
