It has been almost two months since I last blogged, which I honestly can’t believe is true. For those of you wanting proof that I haven’t been sitting around my apartment doing nothing, head on over to my author page at EW and check out my latest blogs. But while I have you here, I might as well catch you up on my entertainment findings as of late …
Bates Motel: Watch it. Love it. I’m obsessed, even though (or perhaps because) the cops suck.
Scandal: LIVE IT. BREATHE IT. LOVE IT. Binge-watching this show might be the best decision I’ve made in the past few months.
Iron Man 3: Go see it. It’s a lot of fun, and it’s much better than two.
Grey’s Anatomy: Killing it this season. I cannot wait to see what Shonda Rhimes does with the finale. No plane crashes, please.
The Vampire Diaries: Elijah’s return was SEXY PERFECTION, and I think this last stretch of episodes has been top-notch. Between the tension that Silas builds and the fun that the show had with no-humanity Elena — not to mention Nina’s amazing performance when Elena finally did get her emotions back — I am very, very excited for what the next two weeks have in store for us. One last shout-out to the writing as of late. Just the right touch of humor. And P.S. Elijah’s cry face … UGH. EVERYTHING.
The Originals: I’m so into this show. It’s such a boy’s club and overall power struggle, but I love the darker, more mature vibe it gives off. And hello, Marcel! Charles Michael Davis is captivating in this role. I like him much more here than on Grey’s. And you all know that as far as I’m concerned, the more Elijah the better.
Nashville: Deacon and Rayna finally gave into their feelings for each other, and I could not be happier. But am I the only one hoping her father would just die already? Also, I do not care about Avery at all.
The Voice: For me, it’s all about Team Adam’s Judith Hill and Sarah Simmons.
New Girl: The virginity episode might be the funniest of the season. And I heart Nick and Jess. Who knew Nick was such a good kisser?!
Parenthood: Renewed! Yay!
Southland: Things don’t look good in terms of a renewal, but this last season was beyond powerful. In my opinion, no actor deserves an Emmy more than Michael Cudlitz does right now. He was simply breathtaking this season. And I’m obsessed with Ben McKenzie’s final scene of the season. I think it’s the best work he has ever done (along with the great Shawn Hatosy).
Okay, it’s Saturday, which means I have to go have a life, aka re-watch this week’s Vampire Diaries. See y’all later!
