What is this...
I decided to start a new blog thread called After This Sunday Night, where I plan on discussing all my favourite just aired TV shows. Because, let's face it, TV is a big part of my life and has been since I first watched Dexter's lab as a wee child :)
On these posts, I'll be ranking my favourite five shows of the week in descending order of preference, Only those that most impressed me will be featured.
So here goes...
My fave TV Show this week:
How to Get Away with Murder Season 1 Ep 4 (10/16/14)
Did all that just happen?
HGAM has been doing just fine so far.. But after this episode, I'm forever hooked to this show.
“Why is your penis on a dead girl’s phone?”
Those are the magic words that have me tethered to this show now. Everything up to that point was well built up, and Connor (Jack Falahee)'s actng was top notch throughout the whole episode.
I enjoyed every single moment of this episode, and each revelation only went to increase my questions, a great thing to ensure the success of a mystery show.
I have only one last thing to add...
I've been pondering over Wes's character (Alfred Enoch) and why Annalise (Viola davis) seems to be giving him so many chances, and I've come to this deduction- He might actually be her son! Think about it..
Anyway, only time will tell if my suspicions are true.
My 2nd fave TV Show this week:
The Originals Season 2 Ep 2 (10/13/14)
Having Charles Michael Davis and Daniel Gillies acting in the same fantasy show is a sure way to ensure my eternal loyalty to it.
Though this episode did not have the combative supernaturals going at each other's throat as I normally prefer it, it span a lovely story altogether, and I love story telling! Seeing Marcel and Elijah's beautiful past was heartwarming, and it also made me understand just why The Originals didn't just kill him last season.
And I must add, the new Kol is drop dead gorgeous! Daniel Sharman is one good looking boy! Damn! Maybe he might just take up the big black hole left behind after Diego (Eka Darville)'s death.
As for the little wolf.. I've never been a fan of hers, but she's slowly starting to not annoy me so much.
Klaus... well I never really liked him, but he did a good job as always. I'm just glad Camille (Leah Pipes) didn't take so much of the air time. I can't even remember if she was in the episode or not, That's how irrelevant she is to me.
My 3rd fave TV Show this week:
Scandal Season 4 Ep 4 (10/16/14)
Until this episode, Scandal had fallen so low in my opinion that I mightn't have featured it in this top five list.
However watching Olivia do 'her thing' in this episode, and be the gladiator we all love her to be was.. Yeah that was something!
The only thing that diosappointed me was her falling back into Fitz's arms again. Aaargh! However, I can't blame her. I too have that one ex whom I avoid like a plague, or otherwise my knees will open up each time I meet him. Maybe Fitz is like that to her, and for that, I empathise with her :)
Oh Jake dear! If Olivia hadn't been so busy with Fitz' daughter's case, she'd have helped out Jake. She's bound to feel very guilty about that when she finally finds out. But that's good, for it means she'll be an awesome gladiator once again to help him. That is if she figures out soon enough that he didn't really kill Fitz' son as he's been accused.
Damn her father!!! Makes for good TV though...
My 4th fave TV Show this week:
The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Ep 3 (10/16/14)
I enjoyed this episode immensely, and most of it was because of bad Stephan, and the Damon/Bonnie scenes.
The waterhole..or-something party was too high school for me.. typical of Caroline. I'm so tired of her, Really I am, but I always make a note not to pray for the death of a tv show character, so I won't. Plus Julie Plec would never write her off, as her character apparently has a large following- yikes!
Bonnie is doing magic again- yeeiy!
Elena got kissed by a very cute dude that isn't a Salvatore brother- yeeiy!
Stephan is bad again (or so I hope)- yeeiy!
I think I might actually really enjoy this new TVD season, because so far the episodes have been very promising.
My 5th fave TV Show this week:
The Flash Season 1 Ep 2 (10/14/14)
Though the pilot episode was wanting, and severely so, The Flash redeemed itself in this episode. Unquestionably a family show that will of course attract even children as viewers, it still held me intrigued all through the episode.
I enjoyed the telling of Barry's history with the West family. I also enjoyed how so much like a regular human the producers have seen to make him, giving him so many regular limitations, like the fact that he's fast does not give him superhuman strength.
And Iris (Candice) is so beautiful, and a great actor. She always puts a smile on my face. She has such a cheerful, sunshine-y demeanor!
Though the two nerds, Dr. McGee and Cisco, are terrible actors, speaking as though directly reading from a script, the rest of the cast is doing a good job holding up the show.
Those are my top five shows this week.
Extras to mention...
I wanted to mention Homeland because I love Quinn and the job he's doing, However Carrie ruined the episode for me.
Grey's Anatomy is not even in the list. I love that it's managed to bounce back without Yang, but it still needs to do a whole lot more to really capture my attention.
Red Band Society is another favourite of mine, but it's not what I'd call one of my top five shows of the week.
ANTM was interesting as usual, but not so much so that I counted the days to Friday night. Keith and Will are doing a mighty fine job, I must say!
