Hello fellow Monsters, it’s time for another chat about our favorite thing, TV shows. I am still in catch-up mode from the last few weeks (my DVR is making me feel VERY guilty) but here are my thoughts of the week!
The 100 – BELLAMMMYYYYY WHYYYYYYYYYY?!?! Ugh, I get what they are doing this season and unfortunately, Kane and Abby’s helplessness as they watch Pike destroy everything they’ve worked so hard to build feels a little too real. But I think the writing for Bellamy has been very weak and hasn’t done enough to justify why he’s completely changed. I also don’t understand why Monty is part of Pike’s crew. That seems weird and out of character for him. I am glad that Jasper can still make me laugh out loud, even in his overwhelming misery and if this show hurts my precious Raven, I will hurt them back. Also, this show needs more Miller.
“Look how cute and non-genocidal we are!”
American Crime – Still not thrilled with the shooting twist although it was fun to see Leslie losing it. There wasn’t a whole lot that went on this week, they are clearly setting it up for the last two episodes but I am way less excited than I was 2 weeks ago.
Emmerdale – While I am glad that Robert hasn’t totally lost his edge, I’m not sure why he thinks his schemes will work. They literally never work Robert, stop trying to be slick! Also, the show needs to stop paying attention to sociopathic teen rapist Lachlan and dead-eyed Gabby. They are terrible, terrible children and Gabby is really taking away from the incredibly touching and powerful story they are doing with Ashley because she’s awful.
And, of course, That ’70s Show remains popular in syndication.
