What If God Was One Of Us

Quite a lot went down last night, most of it while Bill was sleeping. Or Lilith-OD. Or in whatever state he was anyway.

The mayor’s dead serious about exterminating the vampire race. The man’s got fancy new weapons with bullets that can turn a vampire into an overcooked chicken and contact lenses that block out glamouring. Even Pam was scared after seeing what these weapons did to Tara and that was enough to turn Eric’s focus back on the mayor and leave all the Billith madness to Nora. How adorable was Eric as a geek? No, seriously, those goofy glasses, the hair, the hunching, the dorky smile, and then, boom, badass vamp again. I loved the minions’ reaction when he jumped up in the air; he’s like the superman of vampires. Am I the only one who thinks that he’s going to turn the mayor’s daughter into a vamp? Because that would be interesting to watch.

Sookie met a boy. He’s half a fairy, just like her. Sookie and Ben will soon be sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G. Bored already. I’m interested in Sookie’s love life only when she’s undressing Eric.

Bill went comatose and spoke to Lilith who got us more confused about god and vampires and vampire gods. In the meantime, Jessica ordered some food. I didn’t know there was a vamp takeout. I wonder if there’s a kid’s meal for the little ones. However, it didn’t end well since Bill kind of overdid it with the extra toppings (sorry, I know I’m lame but I can’t help myself). I felt sad watching Jessica praying. The girl was raised by a strict religious family, she views her vampirism as her freedom from all this and now she’s stuck with a “father” she’s both fond and afraid of. She doesn’t know what’s going on, yet she has no choice but stand by him. She’s still a child inside. Bottom line is that Bill can now see the future and it doesn’t look pretty. I’m guessing the vision of everyone getting burnt is from the season finale.

The creepy-looking man who gave Jason a ride in the previous episode was not Warlow after all, who btw is wandering around Bon Temps. The Stackhouse siblings reunited with their great fairy grandfather who showed Sookie a way of killing vampires with her power but it’s a one-time thing. Again, stuff for the season finale. I liked his interaction with Jason. He had the is-this-really-my-blood expression on his face every time Jason opened his mouth that cracked me up.

What’s the deal with these L.A. chicks who want all supernatural beings to come out? Are they supernatural themselves?

True Blood 6×01 Photo Recap

Here’s the photo recap for True Blood’s Who Are You, Really?. It’s the first time I’m doing a photo recap and I’m not sure if it’s any good or if I’ll keep doing these for the entire season.

Feel free to tell me what you think about it!

It’s Billith Bitch

via tvfanatic.com

It was about bloody time! True Blood’s season 6 premiered last night and after 2 not so great seasons, it’s good to see the show raising the stakes. Kind of a lot happened in Who Are You, Really? so let’s get this started.

Is it Bill? Is it Lilith? No one knows for sure, not even Bill himself. Apparently this thing can’t be killed so I think it’s safe to assume that Billith’s not a typical vampire anymore. It can’t be burnt, it can’t be staked so how do you kill it? Jessica was the only one that took Bill’s side and turned on the rest of the gang. It’s obviously the maker/progeny bond talking but Jess seems to believe that Bill Compton is not all gone. The duo had a heart-to-heart where Bill revealed that he’s not exactly sure of what’s happening to him; he demonstrated a new power he wasn’t even aware he possessed and who knows what other powers he has. And what was with the Lilith triplets entering his body in the end?

Speaking of triplets, Andy’s quadruplets are growing… fast. If they keep popping this way, daddy’s gonna have to find another job to afford college.

I’m glad we only got a couple of werewolf scenes. Mr. Manganiello’s abs are certainly a treat but I don’t really care about that storyline. I did love though the way Rikki marked her territory. Oh, and Luna’s dead; now Sam needs to take care of the little one. Maybe he can arrange playdates with Andy’s kids while they’re still the same age.

Did someone say Eric? No? Good, because we’re gonna talk about Eric now. Our lovely viking was in charge last night trying to keep everyone safe. Well, he wouldn’t mind leaving Jason and Jessica behind but Sookie wouldn’t take that very lightly. Pam didn’t like Nora. At all. And Eric was quick to take his sister’s side, something that blondie didn’t find that amusing. Personally, I can see why Eric was so harsh; big things were going on at that moment and trivial bickering would only stall them but I still didn’t like his attitude. He better make up for it in the next episodes. I miss his relationship with Pam. At least, she got some with Tara who’s not willing to take any crap from anyone and seems to be deeply concerned about Pam. She even stood up for her when the mayor’s minions came to Fangtasia to shut it down.

What’s up with the mayor, anyway? He wants to protect the human race against the vampires but he seems shady. No one walks in this show having only good intentions.

Oh, and we finally met Warlow. He picked up Jason off the road. What’s wrong with this kid? You don’t just tell your entire story to a man you only know for like 2 minutes. Jeez, the kids these days…

Anyway, that’s all for now, folks. What did you think of last night’s episode? Feel free to comment!

Suits Rewatch: 1×07-1×08

I’m almost getting to the end of season 1 and I think that these reviews will be done just in time for the premiere of season 3. So, here is one hell of an episode and one I didn’t like just as much. Keep on reading to find out which is which.

1×07 Play The Man

That. Was. One. Great. Episode. It certainly goes to my top Suits episodes list. The two big players set up their pawns in a mock trial and although Mike had what it takes to win, he chose not to.

Apparently, Mike didn’t take the mock trial seriously from the start, because, duh, mock trial. But once he saw it for what it really stand, he got back to the game. Harvey didn’t seem too eager to offer his advice (after all he was legendary at his own mock trial) but he did show him in his own way that reality bites and when there’s no one to hold on to he’d have to figure it out by himself.

Donna was on Mike’s team and she was spectacular. Jenny joined him as well, and not just in the mock trial. He trusted her with his secret, they talked it out and that’s how the cutest couple ever was created. For real, I’m puking rainbows here. Rachel, on the other hand, still being angry at Mike joined the side of the enemy, Louis’ protégé, Kyle.

However, the most astonishing thing of all happened when Rachel was called to testify. It was such a powerful scene because at this moment Mike chose, and I quote, “what kind of person [he] wants to be”. He used Rachel’s weakness against her but when it really mattered he backed off.

I was torn myself during that scene; when Pearson asked him if he was going to proceed I caught myself saying out loud “do it, do it”. I don’t know had I been in Mike’s shoes whether I’d choose my career over the girl I liked or not. This whole dilemma “good lawyer or good person” was at its pick in this episode and even though Harvey seemed disappointed by Mike, he did feel sorry that his winning the hotel case cost a person he cared about her job.

P.S.: Harvey is a Trekkie!

1×08 Identity Crisis

Aw, Louis. I actually feel sorry for the guy. He probably spent his entire life being doubted and when someone comes and says that he respects him he can’t tell if it’s the real deal. And let’s be honest, Harvey isn’t exactly the kind of person that makes it easy on you. There’s a mutual repulsion but also a mutual underlying respect between the two men. Harvey made the first step a couple of episodes ago and admitted that he makes fun of Louis because he believes that he’s good at what he does. So, apparently Harvey doesn’t waste his insults on people indifferent to him.

Harvard degree problem solved. For now. I mean, it’s a bit too good to be true, right? That Lola chick did a damn good job hacking into Harvard’s system, though. I wonder if Mike will ever actually go to Law School to get that degree for real.

Overall I think this was a so-so episode but a moment I truly enjoyed was Mike stepping up and telling Harvey the situation as it was: you either help me save my ass or leave me alone to figure it out myself.

Oh, and THIS was awesome! lol

When Are We Gonna Get Sick Of F.R.I.E.N.D.S.?

It all started in 1994. It ended in 2004. It’s 2013; why does it feel it was only yesterday that we waved goodbye to Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Joey, Chandler and Ross? Why can we still reference the show without fearing the others will give us the WTF look? Why do we keep watching all the “The One With The…” episodes and laugh like we haven’t laughed with all the new comedy series on TV?

As I’ve mentioned in another post, the greek TV network that broadcast Friends never stopped airing reruns so every weekend I know that when I turn on the TV Chandler will be telling some hilarious joke. It’s like my constant; the moment this changes I’ll just know that something bad happened.

But what is it about Friends that makes it so appealing to every generation? The plot isn’t something extraordinary; it’s exactly what the title says: friends. Six people so different yet so close. You can find at least one common characteristic between one of the six and yourself. I share Monica’s obsession with every single piece being exactly where she left it. I also cannot keep up with a serious conversation for more than 2 minutes, just like Chandler. And I completely, undoubtedly, 100% agree with this golden rule:

The storylines were plausible, just told from a funnier POV. The bromance between Chandler and Joey was epic. Rachel and Monica may cried that it was the end of an era when the latter decided to move in with Chandler but it was also the end of an era for the boys, as well. Perhaps it was worse for them. For Joey it felt like his best buddy was starting an entirely new chapter in his life and he just stayed there watching everything changing. For Chandler it was the end of life as he knew it. Immature Chandler was becoming a man in a committed relationship. Show me a person that didn’t shed a tear while watching these two hugging and I’ll show you a person without a soul.

For most people the ultimate Friends couple has always been Ross and Rachel. For me it will always be Chandler and Monica. They started out as friends. They were never that close (as Monica remarked in London) in the sense that if I were to pick two Friends that were inseparable, they wouldn’t be my first choice. However, they were always there for each other and their getting together in London made sense. And the fact that their relationship began blossoming after they slept together is what made it interesting. Most TV couples that spend seasons before actually happening end up being boring. With Chandler and Monica that was never the case. Even as a married couple they were pure delight to watch. And let’s not forget their struggle to have a baby and Chandler’s amazing speech about Monica being a great mother.

If you ask me about my favourite character on the show I’d give you two answers: Joey and Chandler. I love Joey and I love Chandler but when they are together it’s magical. It’s probably why the Joey spin-off didn’t get very far. And I believe that about everyone in the group. They are amazing when they’re together. Take one out and it becomes something else.

And let’s not forget about some of the rest of the characters. They weren’t always there but every time they showed up they gave us nothing but a smile.

Forever-in-the-friendzone Gunther.


And Mike. I never really understood if people liked him or not but personally, I thought he was a great addition to the cast and he had great chemistry with Phoebe.

Whatever the secret ingredient was, it was a show that has a place in our hearts and although 10 years were not enough (they weren’t!) thank God for DVDs and reruns. Oh, that reminds me the weekend is near…

Suits Rewatch: 1×05-1×06

Sorry it took so long to post the latest review, guys. I recently started taking spanish lessons and got caught up with the studying. But here’s the next two episodes and I’ll really try to keep ’em coming more frequently.

1×05 Bail Out

Oh, Harvey, your emotions are showing… He may want to appear to be the tough guy but there’s a big heart underneath that expensive suit. While watching him scolding Mike for not cutting Trevor off, I kept thinking that maybe he’d been in trouble himself when he was younger. I saw genuine concern in his eyes and it wasn’t just because he’s responsible for Mike. Maybe Jessica was to Harvey what Harvey is now to Mike. I have this theory that she saved him from some young thoughtless choices that could have costed him his future and now he wants to do the same with his apprentice. I was also pleasantly surprised by the mutual respect between him and his driver. I was team Mike from the beginning but Harvey’s winning me over with every episode.

Someone, please, give Donna more screen time. Every facial expression, every word that comes out of her mouth… I swear, she’s Harvey’s long lost twin. Unless I’ll end up shipping these two in the near future so that would be gross…

The (not for long, I guess) goodbye hug between Mike and Trevor was a nice touch but the fact that the latter now knows about the “scam” cannot be good.

Anyway, this episode was pure Harvey to me and I’ll leave it at that.

1×06 Tricks Of The Trade

The past is knocking on your door, Mike. Do not answer. Seriously, first Louis is constantly trying to get Mike to make the fatal mistake, now Rachel knows that he’s the genius test cheater and, boy, is she pissed about that. The sad thing in all this situation is that Mike is trying to make a good thing here but in the end he’ll only manage to get himself in trouble for being a big fake lawyer. Yes, it was his choices that got him there but he’s not a bad guy and we all make mistakes. Fortunately for him, when all hell breaks loose he’ll hopefully have Harvey by his side.

Speaking of, Harvey could benefit from Mike’s naive soul; and I mean naive in the best way possible. Harvey’s been in this business for a long time now and he’s lost the ability to see the good in people (assuming he ever had this ability). These two keep exchanging their best qualities.

I’d so love to see Harvey and Louis’ Day Of Fun; such a shame we’re not going to.

Oh, did I mention I love drunk Mike? Because I’m going to keep mentioning it until there’s an episode dedicated to drunk Mike and sober-scolding Harvey.

Gotta see this one more time. Priceless!

Suits Rewatch: 1×03-1×04

Two more episodes down. This is the first time I’m doing a review on a show starting from the pilot episode and I must say that it’s getting more and more interesting (for me at least!) because I get to pay closer attention to the characters than I have with other shows in the past.

1×03 Inside Track

Have Harvey and Jessica slept together in the past? I kept getting those vibes from both of them during this episode. I guess I’ll find out if I keep watching…

I like how Harvey keeps seeing a younger version of himself in Mike but he has to understand that he can’t expect him to follow his steps in every situation. Mike is a whole different person and although he sees Harvey as some kind of mentor, he also feels comfortable enough around him to tell him when he’s wrong; he did find that “mistake” after all.

Go Team Grandma! Listen to her Mike. Trevor is bad news. I really don’t think that Mike’s done with him and I also don’t think that it’s going to end well between the two of them. There’s too much going on; Mike’s finally made something of himself, Trevor’s personal life is falling apart and they both like the same girl (and she likes the both of them). You do the math.

Another thing I was particularly happy to see was that Mike is starting to grow a pair and stand up for himself.

1×04 Dirty Little Secrets

I particularly enjoyed this episode. Mike lost his C-Card (as in Case – see what I did there?). In the beginning I thought he was going to keep using Harvey’s name throughout the whole thing but it was nice to see him gaining confidence even though Vivien Tanaka almost devoured him in court. It was cute watching Mike and Rachel playing husband and wife; they make quite a team. Even Harvey was impressed by his little apprentice. Let’s be honest, he loves this kid!

Speaking of love, Tanaka may wasn’t so gentle with him but Rachel’s rejection was the one that hurt the most. They had chemistry from day 1. He clearly liked her from the beginning and I think she finds him cute, too. I get a feeling that it’s not just her “don’t date co-workers” policy that holds her back; maybe she’s aiming a bit higher? Honestly, I hope that’s not the case because I really like Rachel.

Jessica’s ex-husband showed up and you know who wasn’t so pleased? Harvey didn’t even know Jessica was married and perhaps he felt betrayed that she didn’t trust him enough. Then again, the wedding occurred when he was in Harvard and we still don’t know the nature of their relationship.

Jessica seemed genuinely concerned about her ex-husband’s case, especially after he told her he was infected by the same disease his drug was supposed to fight. And Harvey was there for her at the bar, as a good friend.

Louis may not know that Mike never went to Harvard, yet, but I can definitely see him finding it out later on. I cannot stress this enough: he’s such a little weasel!

On another note, someone, please, shake Mike’s damn hand!!

P.S.: Is the series soundtrack totally feel good stuff or what?
