(Un)Resolved Couples: Do Ships Sink?
TV couples, don’t you love them and don’t you hate them. Tv is a special landscape as we do not get that many happy couples. Happy couples are dull, boring, have nothing to say and seldom bring joy to our screen. That is very curious as happiness in general in ‘normal’ life is fun and good to watch.

In my personal life I remember fellow students who had their girlfriends since high school, they married them right after their final exams and they had a very happy and peaceful life sitting behind the tv sets every evening. I went the other way, a life with more risks, more gains but also more falls and I am pretty sure I have never been as happy as they belief they are. But I am sure my life was so very less dull and that’s worth a lot. It’s ...Read more

The Leftovers 1.9 Review - 'The Garveys at Their Best'
As a television fan, I've come to easily recognise writing practices or tropes television series use on a fairly common basis. And as with most aspects of television, one's appreciation of these writing practices is subjective to the taste of each individual television viewer. This week's episode of The Leftovers, 'The Garvey's at Their Best', used a very common storytelling device in the form of a flashback, the entire episode being based pre-rapture, which the rest of the series has been based several years after this event.

I feel it necessary to preface this review somewhat with the knowledge that I hate flashbacks. I still love The Leftovers, and there were many great parts about 'The Garvey's at Their Best', as well as a lot more background information about the characters we've grown to know this season, but inherently, I tend to scrutinise the ...Read more

Kiera Cameron Meets Don Draper: Evil, and Seductive, Mega Corporations
This encounter of course never happened, but it illustrates the convergence of evil mega corporations and advertising, and how that can be so cool in a story.

Who Do We Miss Most Of Those Who Left Us Last Season
The new 2014 - 2015 television season is nearing. Many of the series we love will start airing an a few months. Some say that the summer season isn’t a summer season any more, but just another periods of time in the year and the series are as good as they are in the usual season. I am not completely convinced as long as series like Under the Dome prove to be summer hits. Check out my post on the 24 most important questions of the series.

One thing we can say about last season is that we had to say goodbye to a few of our most loved characters. I am still pissed of about a few of them. Some actors chose to leave, some characters were just part of the story and sometimes we just don’t know.

Let’s celebrate the characters we loved but have left ...Read more

The Leftovers 1.8 Review - 'Cairo'
After what I considered to be a misstep last week, this week's episode of The Leftovers was an exhilarating return to form. Whereas the series' best episode to date have previously focused on one character, 'Cairo' worked so well because the series chose to rather focus on particular character relationships. This allowed for some interesting character growth, and probably provided the most plot advancement we've seen in a single episode of The Leftovers so far.

Amazingly one of these character highlights was Jill, someone who's presence on The Leftovers has become increasingly tedious for me. Her blatant questioning of Nora over her gun during the dinner at the Garvey's was the typical angsty teenager button-pushing we've come to expect from her, but 'Cairo', at the very least, attempted to give her legitimate motivations for acting this way. Nora got rid of the gun because she ...Read more

Worst Pairings
Hi! I’m back with another article that I hope you all will enjoy as much as you guys did with my last one. Anyways, this article will be focusing on the worst TV pairings ever made possible. The kind of pairings that audiences/individuals can’t stand due to the writing, acting, lack of chemistry, hotness factor etc. You get the gist. Below, I’ll be sharing a list of what I think are the worst couples that has ever graced the small screen. Before any shippers to these pairings jump on me, let me state that this list is due to MY opinions of them. I’m not stating them as fact; I’m merely just expressing my views on them.


Oliver and Laurel (Arrow)

Putting my allegiance to Olicity aside in favor of objectivity, Oliver and Laurel just don’t work. And there’s a plethora of ...Read more

The Leftovers 1.9 Review - 'The Prodigal Son Returns'
It's difficult for the writers of any series, let alone a freshman series, to decide whether or not as the season draws to a close to end it as if the series was ending for good, or to raise the drama as much as they possibly can, leaving the viewers wanting (and in the case of cliff-hangers, definitely needing), more. The Leftovers finished it's first season run with 'The Prodigal Son Returns', which had a mixture of these two things. Several of it's storylines felt like they naturally concluded, but in their wake I can't help but feel that the episode was more of a bridge between it's first and second seasons, wherever it may be headed.

The episode continued where episode eight, 'Cairo', left off, with Kevin confronted with Patti's lifeless body after she committed suicide in an attempt to frame him for ...Read more
