The Walking Dead: Season 5, Episode 8 – “Coda”

I think it might be time for me and The Walking Dead to start seeing other people. We’ve fallen into this stagnant, loveless coexistence. There’s no passion anymore. No excitement. I will re-evaluate the situation following the midseason break, but I don’t know how many more chances I can give this show. Continue reading “The Walking Dead: Season 5, Episode 8 – “Coda””

The Walking Dead: Season 5, Episode 7 – “Crossed”

In yet another largely unimpressive season, some of The Walking Dead‘s most interesting scenes this year concern the church, and, more specifically, involve Father Gabriel. When audiences were initially introduced to this character, he was annoying, meek, and naive. As the season has progressed, he is still annoying, but he has also proven himself to be crafty, surprisingly capable, and probably evil.

American Horror Story: Freak Show – Season 4, Episode 7: “Test of Strength”

“Test of Strength” is mainly set-up for the next episode, along with some bad karaoke for good measure. I love Evan Peters as much as the next girl, but I did not need to witness his dismal Kurt Cobain impersonation. As much as I like this season, I could really do without the musical interludes. Continue reading “American Horror Story: Freak Show – Season 4, Episode 7: “Test of Strength””

The Walking Dead: Season 5, Episode 6 – “Consumed”

I am still missing what is so awful about Grady Memorial Hospital. I, for one, would not hesitate to indefinitely mop floors if it meant sterile living conditions and food. Beth just needs to shut her face and be nice to Dawn. I guess she won’t have to, though, since apparently Daryl has gone back to camp to summon the reinforcements. There has to be a big, ominous standoff between Team Rick and a “threatening” outside establishment – this type of battle has become typical of the midseason finale. I hate when things become typical on The Walking DeadContinue reading “The Walking Dead: Season 5, Episode 6 – “Consumed””

American Horror Story: Freak Show – Season 4, Episode 6: “Bullseye”

Elsa Mars and Dandy Mott are two of the most bothersome antagonists to be crafted by the American Horror Story series, and yet the nature of their misdeeds is in stark opposition. “Bullseye” exposes Elsa’s villainy as a conscious choice, whereas Dandy’s seems to have hereditary roots. Intriguingly, the twins function as the catalyst that divulges these rivaling temperaments. Continue reading “American Horror Story: Freak Show – Season 4, Episode 6: “Bullseye””

The Walking Dead – Season 5, Episode 5: “Self Help”

“If Maggie doesn’t even give a shit about Beth, why should I?” This had never occurred to me. The one person that should be out there championing the search for Beth has all but forgotten her little sister. She’s found Glenn, so she has disregarded Beth. My mom is a huge Dead fan, but, as evidenced by her above observation, even she reached her limit this week. It is becoming a weekly struggle to sit through the entire episode, especially when TLC’s 90 Day Fiance is on at the exact same time and, sadly, is far more entertaining. Continue reading “The Walking Dead – Season 5, Episode 5: “Self Help””

American Horror Story, Freak Show – Season 4, Episode 5: “Pink Cupcakes”

Tighty Whities and the Duality of Dandy Mott

As per usual, there is no shortage of bothersome scenes in “Pink Cupcakes,” but it is Dandy’s antics that truly take the cake – or the cupcake, if you will. In spite of his many memorable moments, one cannot help but take note of Dandy’s prolonged, underwear-clad daily routine. Attention is intentionally drawn to the awkward undergarments, and the tighty whities speak volumes regarding Dandy’s demented personality.
