Well hey howdy hey everyone! I have recently been a stranger around these parts, but now that my AP exams are done, I am ready to get back into the swing of things! So expect an announcement for the next Live Tweet soon, but right now, we are in the midst of new TV shows being announced, and ABC has put together a very interesting line-up for the 2013-14 season! I just wanted to give my thoughts on what I am looking forward to for the new season and reminiscing on this past one. Let’s get started!
- Scandal…WHAT THE WHAT?! The show has been known to push the boundaries of crazy (in the best way possible), but that cliffhanger was a doozy. The show did just what us loyal Gladiators want, amazing tension, fantastic characters, and plot points that are so crazy, they make you rewind on the DVR. What were your thoughts on the finale…cause it was BONKERS!
- First season of Revenge was superb, crazy dramatics mixed in with some Emily Thorne badassery and Victoria Grayson awfulness made the show a guilty pleasure that was more pleasure then guilt. Then the 2nd season came and it made a small nosedive. The Initiative?! HUH!? I dropped the show right around January, not only because of school work (the reason I dropped Nashville, though I intend to catch up this summer!), but because the show skewed TOO cuckoo for me. I have heard the season finale was fantastic, so let me know your thoughts, but I’m not sure if I should catch up or leave it dead in the water, like an Amanda Clarke imposter. (HEY-OOO!)
- Once Upon A Time…In Wonderland is a very enticing pilot from the writers of Once Upon A Time (I know…SHOCKER) that takes a semi-dark look at the story of Alice, this time with her being convinced it is a vision as she is put through the ringer to get it abolished via an insane asylum’s tactics. The spin on the story and the actors/effects look great, but I am hesitant only because it is a OUAT spin-off. I dropped the show at the beginning of season 2 due to its flip-flopping nature of 1 great episode, then 2 awful and boring ones, continuing the cycle throughout the season. I will still give the show a try, but I won’t be sticking around long if it has the OUAT curse.Read More »Thoughts on ABC Upfronts, How the Fall Season is Shaping Up
