Pretty Little Liars S04E13 "Grave New World" Review

Ladies and gentlemen welcome to the newest addition of The Strangeverse, "Pretty Little Liars" reviews (starting at Season 4)(better late than never)(yes, I'm watching this show, shut up!)! Unfortunately, this will be the only one for awhile because alas, this was a Halloween episode and our favorite victims are on break until January, which is still ample time for us to continue our tour of "Ravenswood" which I'll be getting to later. For now, we're focused on our four fierce femme fatales. Unlike most Halloween episodes, this episode actually had some significant developments, all of which will be addressed after the break!

Early Thoughts On "Ravenswood"

I can't honestly say what exactly it is that has me excited about the "Pretty Little Liars" spin-off "Ravenswood". Is it the name and my love of all things raven (be it the poem, the Teen Titan or the professional wrestler), is it my complete adoration of small town mysteries ? Is it the creepy introduction we had to this town earlier in the 4th Season of "Pretty Little Liars" or is it simply the fact that Hanna's exclusive beau, Caleb Rivers is headlining this series? Whatever the case maybe, I'm completely stoked for this series. Stoked enough to share some early thoughts on what the series COULD potentially be about, enjoy after the break.

STRANGE LOG: 10-20-13

So let's talk about the future of The Strangeverse and how things are going to be down the road. As many of you know or may not know, my Blip account is going to be deleted come Nov. 7th, that means that The Best Of The Worst, Deconstruction, DEXTER-ity, and any and all one shot videos I created previously will be unavailable until I find a new host site for them (which may not happen in a timely fashion) so for the sake of brevity, I'll just say that those series will BE DISCONTINUED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE!

That being said, a few things are going to change here (for better or worse, depends on who's looking at it). I'll be doing more written reviews as I've stated in a "Chainsaws & Vicodin" video, as far as The Best Of The Worst is concerned, I MAY or MAY NOT be doing written reviews of those movies, BUT the things with The Best Of The Worst is that it's easier to mock in video format. So if I do written reviews of those movies expect them to be few and far between, and the same applies to Deconstruction. Ultimately "The Strange Review" will be my primary movie reviewing series. The TV Round Up will also continue on this blog as an article with the trailer embedded and comments below. Not ideal but I really like The TV Round Up Series and we'll see what can be done.

As for The Strangeverse Storyline, as it stands now, I'm forced to turn it into an actual webseries as opposed to embedding storyline segments in reviews. The reason I put storyline segments in reviews because the subject of the review is something reflective of the storyline's theme. As far as previous storylines are concerned, Season 3 & 4 will be condensed into a 2 videos with ONLY the storyline segments available. Season 5 will effectively be a webseries solely based on Youtube. While this may limit my creativity, I'm looking forward to the challenge and for what I have planned for Season 5, it maybe my best one yet. Season Two unfortunately can't be reformatted in this way and therefore will remain in text format.

In conclusion, while I'm not particularly happy (in fact I'm downright pissed about the current state of affairs) they are outside of my ability to change and much like Anne Hathaway's Catwoman, "I'm adaptable.", so I just have to roll with the punches and do what I can to keep this thing afloat until I can find a location to host my videos OR just have them available for download on Mediafire or something...we'll see. The following articles will be coming to this blog:

"Pretty Little Liars" Reviews....Oct. 23rd & Ongoing
"Grimm" Reviews...Oct. 26th & Ongoing
 "Power Rangers: Jungle Fury" Review...TBA

American Horror Review #2: Asylum

I must LOVE torturing myself because I did it again. As no doubt Season 3 of "American Horror Story" now subtitled "Coven" is probably WELL into the stupidity that seems to plague this series like flies to feces, I think it's time to reflect on the train-wreck, sex riddled, nonsensical, half-baked, poorly written, go nowhere, dog-chasing-it's own tail, mind-numbingly awful 2nd Season of "American Horror Story". Although unlike the last review, this time I take on a FULL Season of this bullsh*t! I survived, but I'll never be the same again. Also feel free to check out this nifty little link that hit all the points I couldn't. Meanwhile...Ugo & The Seeker prepare to embark on their quest to obtain The Jacket!
