And so begins the swan song of one of the best written TV shows in TV history. Unfortunately the geniuses over at NBC (thanks to the unsophisticated dullards) have decided to cancel "Hannibal" due to low ratings. One can only hope that this show is rescued by Netflix (I know Amazon & Hulu exist, but I prefer Netflix) but saving a show is extremely rare, if that were the case "Awake" would be in its 3rd Season right now and "Cult" would be a MAJOR hit. Before I get on a tangent, let's begin the review.
My apologies to everyone who was expecting this review at the usual time, unfortunately/fortunately with my current employment situation I come home frequently tired and though I do watch the episode, I am too tired to review it and even now I should be getting my rest as I have an EXTREMELY busy (and prone to be frustrating day) day tomorrow. So with that out of the way, let's get to the episode proper.
Episodes like this make me feel like the show is losing it's damn mind and in a good way, more or less. In this episode we continue with Will Graham on his search for Hannibal by exploring his "Memory Palace", this leads Graham to Lecter's childhood home in Lithuania. Not much else subplot wise going on in this episode, but it's the slow burn that counts and pretty soon things will heat up. Let's dive in.
I seriously need to start writing these intros AFTER I finish the previous episode, it'll maintain my train of thought. Anyways, last episode, Sara put some serious doubt into The Liars (namely, Emily) about Andrew's guilt and while Aria is out for blood and Hanna is looking to move on (more or less) Spencer and Alison are determined to solve the mystery of Charles DiLaurentis. Of course, Alison's father was no big help, and this only makes Spencer and Alison more dubious on the notion that there is no Charles DiLaurentis. So what's next for The Liars and Andrew "Walking Tall" Campbell, let's find out.
Okay, Kiddos. Very rarely do I get to gush about something on TV unless it's "Hannibal" (which is currently the best written show on TV right now) but I've taken to watching "Wayward Pines" and in their most recent episode titled "The Truth", I have to admit I was EXTREMELY impressed with how it was handled and the impact it had on me. This isn't a review but it will contain spoilers, so if you haven't watched "Wayward Pines" up until episode 5, PLEASE GO give it a watch and come back.
Is it possibly for this show to get any weirder than it already has? Apparently, yes, and if this episode is any indication of just how weird this season will get then OH BOY! In the previous episode we focused just a tiny bit on Bedelia DeMaurier and Hannibal's impersonation as Dr. Fell, but in this episode we switch back to Hannibal's arch nemesis & best friend Will Graham, what craziness awaits us in this episode? Check it out after the break.
The 2nd episode of what's shaping up to be a pretty dark season of the penultimate season of "Pretty Little Liars" and already they're establishing a few things in terms of where at least this half of the season will go. But The Liars are now free from "A" A-Hole (yes, that's what I'm officially calling it). We've caught up on the goings on, and now here we are, let's get to the action.
Ever since The DC Comics Reboot after the events of "Flashpoint" which resulted in The New 52, I've been shying away from The DC Universe more and more (sadly, the same can be said for it's attempted cinematic universe as well). But while I've been staying away from DC Comics, I've still had my eyes and ears to the "streets" to remain informed about the latest goings on. This brings me to everyone's favorite from The DC Universe, Batman and The Court Of Owls story arc that was introduced in The New 52. In my humble opinion, this story was crap, granted this is my opinion, therefore it's subjective crap and not objectively crap, which is good for people who liked it. I did not and I'm going to explain why.
Daddy is back kids and kittens, "Hannibal" kicks off Season Three after an incredibly brutal finale that saw all of our main characters (with the exception of the big cheese himself, Dr. Lecter) in peril. Jack suffering a massively bleeding neck wound in the pantry, Alana Bloom slowing dying after being pushed out the window by Abigail Hobbs, who's dying in Hannibal's kitchen next to a slowly bleeding out Will Graham, do finales get any darker than this? Maybe. Anyway, we join Hannibal and Dr. DeMaurier (in what appears to be) 8 months in Italy. So what's up with the good doctor now? Find out after the break;
I should really stop dating these since my blog does it automatically...just a thought. Anyways, I figured I'd update you lots (specifically Guga *waves* HI!) on the goings on here since situations have changed. So strap yourselves in for another Strange Log, kiddos!
The day is currently Apr. 14th. I started writing the opening to this review early because I wanted to capture my current thoughts on where Season 5 ended and where this Season begins. I have to say this will probably be one of the oddest season premiers this show has ever had. We're not starting with The Liars in a place we're familiar with anymore, we're starting with The Liars in the clutches of "A". "A" has officially won and has The Liars in his dollhouse. But The Liars aren't without hope, Det. Tanner is now fully aware of The Liars' innocence as well as Alison's, and she has joined forces with Toby & Caleb and has discovered part of "A's" monitoring equipment. Also, Spencer managed to stumble into "A" room and discover some film reels of a one Charles DiLaurentis. Of course, Spencer was the one who cracked the code and discovered "A's" true name as Charles. But they're still in the bunker, still in the dollhouse and still in "A's" clutches. How will this last for 1 more season after this? I. Marlene King revealed that this season will see a 4 year time skip, I guess bypassing all the college years. Will The Liars find out who "A" is and what EXACTLY their motives were or are? All that remains to be seen. We now take you to, Season 6.
