TWD: The End of The Ricktatorship?

** This post contains affiliate links. The opinions and ideas expressed are my own. ** POST CONTAINS SPOILERS ** If you missed it, watch the full episode here! It’s the end of a post-apocalyptic-world era. There was a comment on Talking Dead Live that there has always been a clear delineation of “before” and “after” for Rick in the TWD graphic novels, and (if memory serves that comment correctly), this

The Last Kingdom: Love it or Loathe it?

Featured Photo via themoviedb.org    If you like Vikings, you will either hate The Last Kingdom, based on the books by Bernard Cornwell, or you will be obsessed. I fall into the latter category; I love them both, for different reasons. Full disclosure: I avoided The Last Kingdom because I thought it was just a rip-off of the Vikings (or vice versa!) but over the holidays a family member began a

Beth Greene, We Hardly Knew Ye

It’s been a very long two months since the mid-season finale, and even longer since I have written about TWD (that is for another post). If you’re like me, you’ll be watching the Beth Episode tonight before the mid-season premiere. I am always saying that, for me, The Walking Dead being one of the only shows that seems to be able to get away with killing off major characters, and since I

Farewell, Psych: A Love Letter

By Stacey Gillard I discovered Psych late. A friend sent me the DVDs of the first 2 seasons and after watching 3 episodes I ordered seasons 3 through 7. I had watched them all within 2 weeks and then had to wait another 2 weeks until the 8th and final season was released on April 1st. Last night I reluctantly finished my marathon by watching the series finale. I had

How I Met Your Mother Finale: How We Conned A Fandom

By Stacey Gillard with Mieke Trudeau After 9 seasons of wondering, of teasing, ups and downs, laughter and tears, How I Met Your Mother came to an end, finally revealing the whole story of the woman Ted Mosby married, the love of his life who gave him the perfect ending to the love story recounted over the years. Or did it. This season has been a slow one. All 22 episodes prior to

The Walking Dead 4.14 - The Grove

Not one single episode in all of the four seasons made me feel the kind of emotion I felt watching The Grove. I think we can all agree that, zombie apocalypse or no, killing children on television is (or has been) kind of taboo. As a writer, it’s never a fun thing to write, let alone act out, and as a viewer it can be just as difficult. Yet….somehow we

Beauty and the Beast 2.16 – About Last Night

by Mieke Trudeau Lately I have been starting my BatB reviews with a quote that sums up the episode pretty nicely. However, this week, the show was so chock full of great ones, that I had a hard time choosing: Cat: “I can’t go backwards.” Gabe, to Vincent: “What can you do that I can’t do?” Vincent, to Cat: “We are better together than we are apart, and you know

Beauty and the Beast 2.15 – Catch Me If You Can

By Mieke Trudeau “You can’t completely deny your other half. That’s you too.” Truer words were never spoken, and once again they came from JT – Beauty and the Beast’s own Yoda to Vincent’s Luke Skywalker. All along we have been witnessing the struggle between the heart and reason, between beast and human. Catherine is eager to move on from all the heartbreak in her past, by denying her romantic,
