“Chapter 2”

Jane The Virgin is my new Monday night addiction. It’s a mix of everything I love in my favorite television shows and I ‘m so happy that The CW picked it up for a full season, 22 episodes, which means more TV Talks. Yippy!! Last nights episode introduced us to Chapter Two of Jane’s story and they wasted no time to jump right into the craziness but first let me do a quick recap of last weeks premiere. Jane is ambitious, hopeful and optimistic young woman who made a vow to her Abuela to keep her virginity until she got married. She’s dating Michael who loves her unconditionally and respects her vow. Due to an unfortunate event her gynecologist Luisa accidently inseminates Jane with Rafael’s sperm and she gets pregnant. So now Jane’s pregnant with Rafael’s (Luisa’s brother) baby, engaged to Michael and trying to stay calm, cool and collected while she navigates this new chapter in her life.

The second episode opens up with a flashback scene to Jane’s Quinceañera, where Jane’s mother always wanting to be the center of attention starts singing Milkshake by Kelis and totally embarrassing Jane but we find out later on in the episode that Xiomara only did this to distract Jane from seeing her hot Quinceañera date kissing some other girl at her party. Now that Jane’s pregnant, her life is about to change drastically but it really hasn’t hit her yet so she made a vow to just move forward with her life. She even went so far to not even acknowledge that the baby is a baby. Instead, she wants everyone to refer to the baby as “The Milkshake,” so she didn’t have to think about being pregnant but all this changed after she heard the baby’s heartbeat with Rafael. During a heart to heart with Xiomara, it finally hit her that she was pregnant and that the baby wasn’t a milkshake, she was going to get attached to the baby and then having to give it to Rafael and Petra after carrying it for nine months is going to hurt like hell. Now I can understand why Jane wants to sue Luisa. It broke my heart and I’m sure if you watched last night’s episode you got a little teary eyed. Jane and Xiomara have a bond like no other and that’s why I love this show. It perfectly represents the ups and downs a family goes through and even the craziness like Jane’s entire family, Michael, Petra and Rafael trying to all fit into the room when Jane was getting her first sonogram done. By the way during the sonogram Jane and Rafael had another moment. It’s only the second episode in and I can’t get enough of these two. After Jane made it know that she Google searched Rafael, they had a little heart to heart. He opened up to her and explained why he was a Playboy before being diagnosed with cancer. His fear of failure took him down such a dark path that he regrets but after talking with his sister Luisa she gave him that wake up call he needed. I also love how he remembers the little things Jane told him when they met years ago at Yacht club. He remembered that she wanted to be a writer. It’s just the little things like this makes me feel like these two belong together and as Alba said, “God has a plan.” I just hope the plan is a good plan.

Last night’s episode also proved how stupid Michael is and how that little secret that his brother mentioned will soon manifest itself. Michael could have put his entire investigation in jeopardy when he told Petra that he knew about her affair with Roman. Even though he played it off it wasn’t very smart of him. We all know that he doesn’t want Jane to keep the baby so he’s going to do whatever he can to ensure that when that baby comes Petra and Rafael gets it. Roman is also a psycho. When Petra tried to break up with him, he started to choke her. I wonder how far he would have gone if she didn’t play it off as if she was testing him. Even though she’s cheating on Rafael with Roman, Petra’s love for Rafael is real but the temptation of money is stronger. When he threatened to divorce her she used all the tricks in the book to get back even threatening to tell Jane because she knew how important it was to Jane that the baby grew up in a household with both parents. In the end when she genuinely poured her heart out to him. He decided to give her a second chance. I felt bad for her because she remembered the exact moment he stopped loving her after he talked to his sister during treatment and that’s when she realized everything changed. This scene was the turning point of the episode. It was the moment Rafael realized that it was time for him to give Petra a second chance even though he knew she was just waiting out the terms of their prenup to make money off him. This was the turning point in their marriage because Petra finally told Rafael how she felt. I believed this is what drove her to have an affair with Roman because he gave her everything that Rafael wasn’t. Being unfaithful is wrong and if this is how Petra was genuinely feeling, she should have talked to Rafael sooner. Who knows maybe she wouldn’t of had the affair. I love that this episode showed a more emotional side to Petra and my initial judgment of her was wrong and she’s not as cold-hearted. However, I do think she’s still a hot gold-digging mess.

Jane’s dad is Rogelio de la Vega!!! He’s her favorite telenovela star and her dad. Sadly, she doesn’t know yet because Xiomara hasn’t told her yet. What I don’t understand is how could she keep it from her knowing that Jane and Alba religiously watch his show. Now that Jane’s father is back and wants to be apart of Jane’s life, Xiomara should forgive him and let Jane know who he is. It might ruin their relationship and the trust the have but during this ordeal Jane needs her dad. And poor Alba, God bless her heart. It was funny when she fainted after walking in on Rogelio and Xiomara but I can’t wait to see how she’ll explain this one to her mother.

Jane The Virgin wouldn’t be a hit without a little scandal. Petra’s affair is scandalous but Luisa’s dirty little secret is even more scandalous. You know how last week Luisa caught her wife Allison cheating, which caused her to accidently inseminate Jane; well Luisa is no better. Luisa is having an affair with her father’s wife Rosa aka her stepmother. This is so wrong on so many levels. I swear this show is getting better and better. The drama, the chaos, the romance, the lies, reminds me of my favorite daytime soap operas.

Last nights episode ended with one shocker. I still can’t believe they went there. Someone killed Roman and if was horrific and gruesome. He fell right onto the ice sculpture and it impaled him. It was such a wicked twist. I thought the writers would have explored his character more but when he died, that was unexpected. I’m so curious to see what’s going to happen next and how this one thing will affect everyone.

The episode was an amazing follow-up to the series premiere. I love how as the show progresses the audience is learning more and more about each character and we are diving deeper into the core of the show. It’s such an amazing production. Jane The Virgin is not only funny and romantic, it has that element that just keeps you hooked and on your toes. I just love it. I’m so happy it got picked up for a full season. The show is really spectacular. I hope you guys are enjoying it as much as I am and if you missed Mondays episode you can catch it again on Friday at 8pm on The CW.

 Jane The Virgin airs on Monday nights on The CW at 9pm after The Originals. It’s a Monday Night Must Watch TV Show!!!

TV Talk: Jane The Virgin- Chapter One

“Chapter One”

Last night was the season premiere of Jane The Virgin, and I have to admit even though I was pretty bummed The CW cancelled an amazing show to bring Jane The Virgin to life, it was everything I expected and more.

Jane is like a telenovela. It’s funny, romantic; it has drama and the right amount of emotion. Maybe that’s because Jane’s life is like a real life telenovela. Her grandmother, Alba, is a traditional and over the top Spanish old lady. Can you believe she compared Jane’s virginity to a flower? This made me laugh out loud because when Jane was a little girl, Alba made her crumple up a rose and then she told to her try to make it new again. When this failed, Alba told Jane “You can never go back and that’s what happens when you lose your virginity.” As crazy as this seems, I totally I totally get it. Alba was just trying to teach Jane that it was something sacred, and she also didn’t want Jane to end up like her mother, Xiomara, who got pregnant with Jane at a young age.

Today, Jane is an adult and in a relationship with Michael, who is a handsome, nice, and understanding man. One could even make the connection that he’s Jane’s reward for keeping the promise she made to her grandmother/abuela and is waiting until marriage to lose her virginity.

Jane has her entire life planned out from school, her career and even marriage. She’s on top of her game, and at this point in her life, it seems that nothing can get in her way. Little does she know that her life is about to change drastically and things are about to get super complicated.

Her gynecologist Luisa, accidentally inseminates her with Rafael’s sperm. Luisa, who also happens to be Rafael’s sister, was just having the worst day ever after she found out her wife cheated on her and the sperm that was actually meant for Petra (Rafael’s wife) got inseminated into Jane by mistake. If this ever happened to me, I really don’t know what I would have done. It’s so crazy. Petra can’t be trusted though. Even though she supported Rafael during his cancer, she’s a little snake. This woman is cheating on him with his best friend Roman. It’s such a messy situation, but like I said telenovela. Petra only wants to get pregnant so that when she divorces Rafael she can get more money. Petra is a hot gold digging mess and I hate her already. Thank goodness Rafael asked her for a divorce, however we all know Petra isn’t going quietly.

The most romantic moment was totally ruined when Jane blurted out mid proposal to Michael that she was pregnant. He had the most romantic night planned and she sort of ruined it. But I am happy she told him right away. Michael, on the other hand, was just in total shock because he knew Jane was still a virgin, and that her being pregnant was impossible. However, this being TV where awkward situations abound, they had to play it off because he had invited her entire family to the proposal because he knew she was going to say yes. That bit him in the butt, but it was so sweet of him. Sadly, he didn’t foresee this mishap (who could have?), but Jane being the romantic she is, totally scored points when she proposed to Michael a bit later. I swear I cried. It was the cutest and most romantic scene ever I’ve ever seen.

Jane The Virgin is my new Monday night guilty pleasure. I love watching Sleepy Hollow but sadly that’s going to the DVR. You know what’s amazing is that Jane and Rafael actually know each other. He was her little man crush and they even shared a passionate kiss back when she used to work at this Yacht Club. Back then Rafael was a little playboy so he never called her back. All of this is so ironic you know, but I’m happy that she’s keeping the baby seeing as this is the only chance Rafael has at being a father.

Jane The Virgin is the breath of fresh air The CW needed. There is no other show on TV at the moment that’s like this, and I truly love it. Last night’s episode made me laugh, cry, and get angry (stupid Petra). Seriously, I can’t wait for Chapter 2 next week. But until then, I’ll be watching this episode again because it was just so good.

Jane The Virgin airs on Monday nights on The CW at 9pm. You guys should really check it out! I promise you won’t be disappointed.

TV Talk: The Strain

The-Strain

For the past few weeks I’ve been watching FX’s new show “The Strain” and so far it’s been one hell of a ride!! The first thing that got me hooked on this show was because it was a vampire show but boy o boy let me tell you I was wrong. The Strain is a whole new level of vampires. All my life I’ve been watching vampire shows from Buffy, Angel to The Vampire Diaries and I’ve never seen anything like this in my life. Vampires are supposed to have fangs and big teeth but instead Guillermo Del Toro decided it would be amusing to give these little vampires or Strigoi’s  these little sucker or stingers and let me tell you it is so gross. There is no glitz or glamour in this show and to be frank these little suckers ain’t no Damon Salvatore or Edward Cullen. Every episode I scream, I squirm, I close my eyes because it’s just too much to take in but I love it and I can’t stop watching The Strain. These Strigoi’s invested NYC when Eldridge Palmer made a deal with Thomas Elchorst (he’s a badass old man by the way and I love him even though he’s evil) to be immortal, in exchange Thomas was to bring The Master (who is one ugly creature) to NY so that he could make a new batch of his little Strigoi’s. How selfish and so cruel right? I hate this ugly dude by the way. He looks like Frankenstein baby just 100x uglier and with a pudgy nose. The crazy thing about the spread of the “disease” is that the people who are infected are drawn to fear and love, so they return home to their loved ones and infect and that’s how it spreads. So these people have been going around infecting their families, nesting during the day because like any vampire sunlight kills them and then at night they go hunting like any old regular vampire. Thankfully, old man Setrakian and his group of slayers have been going around trying to kill as much Strigoi’s as possible to prevent further infestation but these Strigoi’s spread their little worms so fast and from the look of Sunday nights episode when they found the Master’s leer, they are greatly outnumbered. The Master, he is so smart though, he tricked Ephraim so good and he almost stung him. I was sitting at the edge of my seat last night watching that scene because I thought that it was the end for him. Whew but thankful Fet, the arrogant, cocky but sexy rat killer saved his life yet again. (BTW Ephraim hates Fet lol) So many people have died already and because Mr. Palmer paid this woman to slow down the internet and communication, the rest of the country and world are clueless and NYC has no help except for this band of misfit Strigoi’s who the Master probably granted some special authority but instead of killing people they are killing their kind. Sadly, I only saw them for one episode so I don’t know what ever became of them. The Strain isn’t for the weak and a lot of people won’t like it because it’s very graphic but it’s such a well written show. I so put it up there with The Walking Dead. I love watching this season and even though it’s almost over (tear) I’m so excited for next weeks episode. If you guys are interested you can check out the entire season on iTunes and be sure to watch Live next Sunday @ 10pm on FX. xx ♥

TV Talk: Pretty Little Liars

1380572721_pretty-little-liars-640

Season 5 of Pretty Little Liars is already 9 episodes in and to be honest I’m having a bunch of WTF moments. First of all Ali and her crazy kidnapping story. Allison literally has lied about almost everything since she’s returned. I really don’t understand why she lied when she could have just told the truth.The craziest thing now is that some fool has come forward and confessed to kidnapping. My question is what the hell does A have up her sleeve. (I think A is a woman tbh) Emily hooking up with Ali was definitely another WTF moment. I know there is some deep romantic history between them but come on Emily you know who she is why would you go there for. Aria on the hand needs to stop feeling guilty for killing Shana. She shot Ezra and almost killed all of them too, in my book she deserved what she got. Since the season started and Ali returned Hanna has been out of control. She drinking, spilling secrets, wearing clothes to match her mood and just letting herself go. OMG and that sleaze Zach who knew he was such a perve. So glad Caleb got his shit together, punched out that little nastiness and Aria told her mom what Zach did to Hanna. Aria’s mom didn’t need to marry that man. She is definitely better off. I am still holding out hope that Aria’s parents will get back together. Mona and her little revenge team scare me. This girl  takes crazy to a whole new level.  Ali has so many people after her. There is Mona and her team, A and now Noel has all this evidence on her just in case she “throws him away.” I’ve never watched a show where one of the characters has so many enemies. Pretty Little Liars this season is confusing the hell out of me. What I want to know is what secret does Melissa and her dad have that is so bad that Veronica decided that she wanted to end her marriage. I have so many more questions like Who is this new A? Can Ezra really be trusted? Who blew up Tobi’s house? Was it A or Allison trying to kill Noel? Why is Ali lying so much? Whoever is this new A has the goods on everyone. There is no secret these girls can hide and A is making sure that every lie is revealed. Pretty Little Liars is leaving me so confused and mad after each episode. I really do hope we get some answers before the Summer Finale because I can’t wait until the second half of  season 5. Are you watching Pretty Little Liars? What are some of your WTF moments so far this season? If you need to get caught up on Season 5 of Pretty Little Liars you can download Season 5 on iTunes below
