Small Screen Review (10/12-10/18)

I watch quite a bit of telly. More than I should, really. So since I watch as much television as I read books, I thought I should "review" what I watch each week, both television and movies (I only watch movies on DVD at home - long story). Nothing fancy, just a few sentences about what I thought of what I watched. (I'll try to avoid spoilers, but no promises.) Comment below with your thoughts on the shows!


Television: Lots of predictable but good episodes.

Movies: New, old, and questionable superheroes.



Selfie: While I adore Karen Gillan and the endings are sweet, this show is just a little too dumb for me. Think I'm going to drop it.

Gotham: Penguin seriously makes this show. Who cares about everyone else - they should've just named the show "Cobblepot" and been done with it.

</Scorpion>: Continues to be awesome, although I was sad the son didn't make an appearance this time, he adds a little something. Happy is officially my favorite character, she rocked this episode.

Forever: Henry dying and coming back makes this show unique, but he hasn't died in several episodes now. The stories are interesting enough I guess, but I'm getting bored. Sadly, the morgue assistant is the best character on the show. The doctor? Meh. The cop? Double meh. Their personalities just aren't original enough for me.


The Paradise: Loved! Jonas ramps up the intrigue to 12 - so glad he's back!

Once Upon a Time: Finally, Mr. Gold is attending the intrigue! Although not enough for my liking. I am a little interested in the Snow Queen/Emma twist though, so on I watch.

Castle: The Invisible Person! It never ceases to amaze me that they can continue to come up with originalish ideas for these types of shows year after year. Bravo, writers.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: While Agent May acted completely out of character (aka weak - they seriously believe we would swallow that?), and I called the Major twist, another entertaining episode as usual. Loving the alien language arc.

Person of Interest: Doing what they do best. Totally called the Dominic twist from the beginning, though.

Bones: I'm enjoying how much the characters have grown - as in, grown up. Loved Bones and Angela chatting married life at the park. The mellow vibe this season wears well on the show.



The Green Hornet (library): While it completely degraded a pretty cool superhero duo into nothing more than adrenaline-junkie fools, the over-the-top violence and destruction were entertaining enough. And Kato was way too cool in action (not to be confused with his personality when he wasn't in action, which was not very cool, just like everyone else's in the movie).

Heaven Is For Real (library): Made me think. And cry. Quite a bit. (I'm an easy crier.) Overall a good, clean movie.


Desk Set (library): Wanted a good oldie and one can't go wrong with the firm of Tracy & Hepburn.

Daredevil (library): Saw this when it first released over a decade ago, and with all the Marvel movies as of late I remembered it and was curious to see it again. It was both better and worse than I remembered, but overall entertaining.

So that's it for this week! What did you watch?


  1. Oh man, Daredevil! It's so bad, that it's good. Did you ever watch those French movies?

    1. Not yet, but I do have Heartbreaker and hope to get to it soon! Thanks again for the recs! :)
