TELEVISION- Sizing up Rachel’s bachelors! #TheBachelorette

It’s that time again! Who will win Rachel’s heart this year on the Bachelorette? Lets review how the guys sold came off as they popped out that limo. 

Kenny: He looks haggard and a professional wrestler. I don’t know about this one. 

Jack Stone: Seems genuine, the whole story about his mother is a bit much. Is he looking for Rachel to stand in?

Alex: Looks he was able to crush his face in with those dumbbells. Obviously lied about how much he can bench which is worrying already. HE A LIAR GIRL

Mohit: Hmm 2 seconds in and he talking about his start up! Definitely trying to promo that #ad

Lucas: How many times was this boy dropped on his head? Whaboom your ass back home please. 

Blake E: Hmm talking about his libido and he much sex he needs in his intro and yet he talks about how it only lasts a half an hour. What is the truth Blake? He was in the live show and definitely came off better meeting her than his intro show.  

Diggy: People who introduce themselves using their nicknames urk me. WHAT IS YOUR ACTUAL NAME THOUGH and let me decide whether I’ll use your nickname. 

Josiah: He is a lawyer aswell which is promising because they’ll have that in common. Also what is up with all these fake court scenes? He may have a bad past but he has obviously changed. Awful story about his brother. 

Peter: He has the same kinda gap as her. He doesnt seem fame hungry like some of these guys.  I can see him going far. 

Bryan: That walk from the limo, you just know he loves himself. This guy is SLICK. 

Rob: Hmmm didn’t show much of this guy, so must be drole. 

Iggy: Nope, there are a few duds this year. Did production genuinely not bother?

Will: Hmm, that entrance. Geek to chic,  Eyebrows raised on that one. 

Bryce: Fireman and good move on wearing the uniform! 

Kyle: A man who bakes, snatch him up Rachel. 

Blake K: I like this one too, seemed like he was looking to replicate the love his grandparents had. 

Brady: Broke the ice, he seems cool. 

Dean: That whole black never go back joke was ridiculous at the Final Rose live show. Sooo dodgy 

Eric: Did they pick the dodge ones for the final rose show? This guy is also another dodgy slick one. 

Demario: Hmm a tad bit too competitive which should raise alarms! Get rid! And a warning from Whitney, DODGE!! 

Fred: Sooo cute, they meet again after all these years. Obviously got in contact with production, bad kid could be a bad guy. 

Jonathan: He is scary as fuck, like American Pyscho scary. And Tickle Monster. Rachel, you in danger girl. 

Lee: Cringe with his fake country singing voice accent. 

Milton: That growl lads… No

Adam: Where did he get that puppet? or is it a dummy, the mouth doesnt even move. What was his motive with that? He just held it. 

Matt: People who wear costumes usually make it through the night, so bravo on that one. 

Grant: Always good to jump out behind an ambulance to make an entrance. Seems nice. 

Anthony: Hmmm Imma make you understand me! Kind of makes it sound like he has problems communicating. Read between the lines Rachel. 

Jamey: Small slot in the show, so he will either slide to the end or booted early. 

Jedidiah: All we got was an biblical reference from this guy. Must 

Micheal: That brownie analogy, errr no!

TELEVISION- No Speedster Villain for Season 4….YUS

Image result for the flash

After the reveal of yet another speedster Savitar, I am glad they are not having a villian with The Flash’s speed abilities next season. Although it was cool twist **** SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER **** that Savitar was actually future Barry Allen I don’t see another season of him facing a speedster being of any interest to us.

Since season one, Barry Allen has had to increase his speed to defeat his latest foe. First it was Reverse then Zoom and finally Savitar. Thankfully Andrew Kreisburg one of the writers on the Flash confirmed in March of this year that the season four villain will NOT be a speedster.

Why will this be a good thing? No more training scenes of Barry trying to outrun another speedster, no more experiments to help Barry get faster and no more Barry crying about how he isn’t fast enough. This has been a huge plot device for the past three seasons and it has gotten very stagnant.

It is same over on Arrow, with Oliver constantly having to defeat villains who have trained to be assassins just like him. They usually always get their hands on a bow and arrow aswell (side eye).  Similarly with Kara on Supergirl, her big bads have ‘so far’ been Kryptonians or lived next door to Krypton. SNORE

These shows have decades of comics to grab from and they choose villains with similar abilities. BORING!! So with a change coming next season, I hope it stretches to the other shows.

Also lets be glad that we won’t be seeing any of Oliver’s flashbacks in the newest season of Arrow either. That also got old after season two.

TELEVISION- Scream TV Show Plots a Reboot!

Image result for scream tvAfter only two seasons under its belt, the MTV Scream series is already plotting a reboot. That means new cast and new location.

I have to say, it is a good move. Despite Sidney Prescott being hunted down by Ghostface for four movies it just isn’t working for the current group of screamers. With Sidney leaping from high school to college to being a proper adult, we seen a huge span of time between each killing spree. This lot are get a couple of weeks before a new killer arises. Although it is a T.V. show, I have to hold myself back from calling bullshit. So I’m gladly welcoming a reboot.

Another change in Scream’s production is a new showrunner and strangely Queen Latifah is joining as one of the new executive producer. I’ll be interested in seeing the change in the series from Latifah joining.

This is all good news for the next season of Scream. It will consist of a shortened season of 6 episodes.

The only annoying thing about the reboot is the fact we will probably not get a resolution about the apparent return of Brandon James in the last episode. Lets just assume he got as bored of the kids as we did and moved on.

 

 

TELEVISION- Real O’Neals most likely cancelled

Tragically all signs are pointing to The Real O’Neals being canned. Two of its main stars just got cast in new pilots. 
Jay R. Ferguson who pays Pat O’Neal just recently got cast in new show Living Biblically. While Matt Shively another of the O’Neal clan joined another comedy called Spaced Out.

The series lasted two seasons and followed The O’Neals a Catholic family who are dealing with a divorce while their youngest son comes out as gay.

Such a shame, this show had some iconic moments. 

TELEVISION- EW finally reveals Buffy Reunion shoot 

Footage from the Buffy the Vampire Slayer reunion for EW magazine has been released.

Sorry we spoilt the surpise weeks ago with our Instagram investigation. Everyone looks so fabulous and grateful for the experience they had on the show.

It  doesn’t look like Eliza Dushku was present. She played notable badass Faith. From when I suspect it happened when Dushku was making her powerful speech to students in NH Youth Summit about her issues with drugs. 

I can’t wait to see some of the pics from this shoot!

TELEVISION- A Buffy Reunion? 

My Scooby senses are tingling that a Buffy reunion is taking place. 

Sarah Michelle Gellar posted this photo and my ears perked. What are you up to Buffster? 

This was followed up by another post by fellow Buffy star, David Boreanaz. 

He appears to be onset with Charisma Carpenter ANOTHER Buffy star. The plot thickens when Sarah Michelle posted another pic. 

She is photoshoot ready and promoting nail polish created by David Boreanaz’s wife Jamie. 

I think they are taking part in a photoshoot for Entertainment Weekly centred on reunions. For special reunion editions of their magazine, Entertainment Weekly have reunited several casts from iconic shows and it looks like Buffy could be its next. 

Check out some of their past reunions.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer celebrates its 20th anniversary this Friday (March 10th). 

TELEVISION- Please Like Me… Season Four was its last. 

Josh Thomas has confirmed via his twitter that season four of Please Like Me was its last! You can read his reasonings in the pic above. 

If you’ve watched the last season you won’t be surprised. It felt final for me anyway. 

The Australian drama slash comedy lasted for 32 episodes and followed the life of Josh as he comes out to his family whilst also dealing with his mother’s mental illness. 

If you haven’t watched already,  get on it. 

TELEVISION- Bates Motel has finished filming their last season 

Is everyone excited for the final season of Bates Motel to air Feb 20th? 

The series has wrapped its last episode yesterday and Vera Farmiga who plays Norma Bates is already mourning the show’s end. She posted pics of the famous Bates home being deconstructed. 

And she also posted a cute selfie with her costar Freddie Highmore. It is an interesting shot as it shows Freddie topless, battered, bruised and cut. Cut this be an homage to the ending of Psycho where the authorities have captured Norman and left him talking to his dead mother aka himself. 

Either way this last season will be a must see especially with the addition of songstress Rihanna to the cast. She will be playing the iconic Psycho character Marian Crane (the shower scene victim) . She is surely going to bring in a cruise ship full of viewers. 

TELEVISION- What is going on with American Crime Story?

Image result for american crime story

American Crime Story is amazing and I love anything that Ryan Murphy touches. I’ve followed his TV work since Popular. My only issue with the work he has done as of late is that it feels like he eventually will get bored of his many franchises. I noticed it with Glee, the first couple of seasons were amazing and you could see him everywhere in it. But then it felt like he vanished. But where did he go to?

My guess is American Horror Story. It is another of his great creations but I think it took away from Glee. The quality of Horror Story was what we would expect from Murphy. It kept us all hooked. But in true Murphy fashion as the seasons progressed, the quality lacked the punch from when it started.

As we all know, each season stands on its own (with some random character appearances from previous seasons) so I find that they all start really well. Then episode by episode, for me, I find it loses its way or grows stagnant. Like the passion was put into the first episodes and then he stepped away for everyone else to pump up the bones he created.

As American Horror Story pushed out season after season, Murphy’s next project was American Crime Story. It followed the O.J. Simpson case. It consisted of ten episodes and was T.V gold. When everyone kept asking what will season two be about? It was confirmed it would follow the crime that was Hurricane Katrina. Then information about season three emerged that it would be about the murder of Gianni Versace. And then season four would be about Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky. And yet none have been made. Production has been stated as taking longer than usual.

I think American Crime Story’s problem and possible downfall could be the amount of ideas floating around. I love all the ideas for future seasons but will they actually happen. Will we have a ten year plan for the series and be waiting around for ages to actually see them? Production I know takes a lot of planning and they have three seasons in the making. The plan from what I can see is to have both season 2 and 3 aired within months of each other. They won’t air until next year unfortunately.

Although Crime Story’s second season was confirmed last year,  Murphy’s latest series Feud will be released beforehand. It follows the feud between Betty Davis and Joan Crawford. And everyone is already asking like with Crime Story, what will season two cover?

Ryan Murphy has so many shows on the go at the moment. You can almost tell which is his favourite by their quality. Nip/Tuck was abandoned for Glee, Horror Story took Glee’s place, Crime Story had Murphy’s attention for a while and now it is Feud.

I love ALL these shows and I am a huge fan, somebody just needs to help him balance his attention on all these shows.
