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

TV Talk: Hit The Floor (Behind The Back)

BompH5FCQAAJumALast nights episode of Hit The Floor was very revealing. It hurts my hurt that Chase is in jail for Olivia’s murder and everyone knows that it wasn’t him that killed her. Even though the shovel was found in his car with his fingerprints on it, it just sucks to see him taking the wrap for a crime he didn’t commit but you know what he shouldn’t have moved her body in the first place.

  • Jelena and her scheming ways.

This girl pisses me off. Why does she constantly get away with everything she does. Last night episode the Jelena hurricane struck again and she got what she wanted. She played it so well that at the game the kiss cam would spotlight German and Asha and they would be forced to kiss. Unfortunately Derrick saw and he got jealous. 🙁 This forced Asha to go above to reassure Derrick that she was in the relationship. The only good thing that came out of this whole situation was Derrick telling Asha he loved her which absolutely wrecked my heart. I knew he loved ahhh. Anyway Jelena being the devil she is had them followed by this photographer and he snapped a couple of pictures of them and then sold it to TMZ. OOOO Jelena is such a sleaze.

  • Lionel wants Pete back.

Lionel is doing way to much to try to break up Pete and Raquel but that ship has sailed. She left him because she supposedly wanted to teach him a lesson but when he didn’t come back she felt stupid. Pete is so over and falling madly in love with Raquel. Sucks that because of Lionel and her constant scheming he is always trying to prove to Raquel that he is committed. The moment between them in last nights episode was really touching. Even after all Raquel had been threw with him she let her guard down and introduced her son to Pete. Let’s just hope he doesn’t mess it up and do something stupid.

  • I Love Kyle.

Kyle, this season is on fire. This woman is just doing her thing her week. Three episodes in and she’s managed to already to swindle two men out of there money. Last night we saw the return of her Swedish Boy Toy Palve (forgive me if I’m spelling this wrong) but she totally saved him from marrying one crazy rival of Kyle’s and also a gold digger. She managed to even get the 14carat diamond ring Palve gave the girl. Kyle you have a way with men teach me your ways darling. I’m so excited for her character this season and her storyline. I wonder who her next victim is going to be.

  • Zero is getting way to clingy.

Jelena is using Zero so bad. He’s such a sucker though. He’s falling for her and to her he’s just another toy that she is playing with until Terrance forgives her. He really doesn’t know who he is sleeping with to be honest. I could see him being the one who figures out who the real Jelena is because they are so alike.

Questions/Predictions

  • Who killed Olivia?
  • I think Jelena is Olivia’s daughter
  • What does that investigator really have Sloane doing at the Devil’s Arena?
  • Will Lionel get Pete back?
  • What is that secret Olivia was talking about in her note to Jelena?
  • I think Jelena killed Olivia.

TV Talk: Hit The Floor (Passing)

BompH5FCQAAJumA

Last nights episode of Hit The Floor was off the chain crazy. The second episode of the season opened showing the aftermath of everyone dealing with the murder of Chase’s wife Olivia. The entire Devils atmosphere was in turmoil. Oscar was going crazy revoking everyone security clearance to avoid anyone leaking out the Devils business. Kyle caught Derek and Asha having a moment and Asha freaked out because she doesn’t want anyone finding out that she’s dating Derek Roman but to be honest I think that if Jelena who is the Devil Girls captain and also a Devil girl can date a player why can’t the other girls do the same. Pete and Asha’s father daughter relations is on the mend and growing and I love it. I’m happy that he felt that he could tell her that he was dating Raquel because they’re at a place now where they can be open and honest with each other about anything. Sadly, Pete and Raquel’s relationship might be over because of Lionel scheming with Jude (Oscar’s son) to get them to break up. Lionel doesn’t want Pete dating Raquel because she says it’s bad for her image but to be honest I think it’s more. I think she wants him back. Lionel got Jude who will literally do anything to please his father do her dirty work. All he did was place that seed of doubt into Raquel’s mind by telling her some thing about how Pete still cares about Sloane and when Asha told Raquel mistakenly that Pete and her mom slept together that sealed the deal. I really hope they can work it out because Lionel is not going to win. Pete doesn’t need to be with any of his exes. I really loved him and Raquel together. German also started his new job as assistant coach to Pete on the Devil’s team. He got his own office and everything. I could so see him giving Derek hell when he finds out that Asha is dating him. Derek is whipped, Asha told him to play nice with German and the look on his face was the most cutest and sincere facial expression ever. Ok I need a Derek Roman in my life. I can tell that he really loves her. He wants to be that attentive, caring and loving boyfriend but Asha’s like NO, not in public. I feel so bad for him. Kyle is trouble. She needs to stop swindling this rich men for the all their money. I know her husband left her to clean up his debts but karma is a bitch and sooner or later everything you do catches up to you.  This poor dude who she messes around with Teddy literally invested in her dummy project. This guy himself is stupid, all you have to do is promise him something or show him a good time and he is cutting checks like tomorrow doesn’t exist. I feel so bad for him because when he finally gets his life together he is going to realize that he was being played. Olivia’s funeral was funeral was just crazy. Jelena turned a somber event into a joke. Jelena gave the eulogy but during her eulogy she started to laugh which was so disrespect. Thank goodness Zero spoke up on her behalf before Chase blew up on her but if you watched last nights episode it was all an act she wasn’t mourning and Zero is complete bullshit artist. He talks a good game but his actions are very questionable like him and Jelena having sex after Olivia’s funeral at the church in the confessional. Jelena needs to be stopped and Zero and his antics and way with words is just killing me OMG!! The last two scenes of last nights episode really made me mad. Jelena finally got the ammunition she needed to take down Asha (she found out Asha is dating Derek) I love her character don’t get me wrong but omg she is so heartless and so fixated on being in control and having power over people. Poor Chase got framed for murdering his wife Olivia. Chase getting arrested just threw me off I didn’t expect it at all and when Oscar smirked I saw guilty all over his face. OMG what on earth is going on, on this show. It’s so crazy but I can’t get enough of it.  This episode left me thinking way to hard and  asking myself these two questions “Who in the Devil’s stadium killed Olivia? and What did Brent mean when he told Derek he got Zero from TN for him? ” Two episodes in and this show is already explosive. I don’t think I can handle this season but you know me I’ll still be watching it.  Don’t forget to watch Hit The Floor Monday nights @ 9pm on VH1.

TV Talk: Hit The Floor (Game Changer)

BompH5FCQAAJumAOne of my favorite shows of the summer is back and it’s hotter than ever. Last nights season 2 premiere was on fire. Asha and Derek are finally together and omg they make one hot, steamy couple this season. The only downside is that their relationship has to stay private because it’s against the rules for a Devil Girl to date one of the players. With Sloane being in charge of the Devil girls Asha has a problem but Jelena is the one that she should watch. Jelena is just out to get Sloane. I found it so funny that she went to Oscar to try to get him to fire Sloane man this girl is relentless she doesn’t stop at all. I’m excited to see what craziness this girl will be throwing at Sloane this season. Asha is now living with Kyle since she said she couldn’t live with Derek but Kyle has so much skeletons in her closet, I do think Asha would have been better off living at Derek’s. I don’t trust Kyle one bit. DRAMA entered the door and her name is Lionel who happens to be Pete’s ex wife. She has one plan up her sleeve. I could see her causing so much trouble for Sloane, the team, Pete and his relationship with Raquel. The new guy on the team Zero is HOT but I can already tell he’s a bit of a bad boy and he is there to stir up so much trouble. He’s acting like a team player now inviting Derek and Terrance to do an interview with him but he’s one who has ace up his sleeve. I wasn’t surprised when he asked Jelena out  but I could see that relationship going South already. The tension is so thick between Oscar and Chase woah I can see Chase going full on this season with trying to bring Oscar down. Oscar better watch his back. Pete made the decision to hire Asha’s ex German as an assistant coach for the Devils hmm man I can already see how this isn’t going to be easy because he’s going be so tough on Derek  this season. It is going interesting seeing them together. What made me blush is how much Derek actually loves and cares for Asha but because Asha is more concerned about her career I can already see that Derek isn’t going to like it so much. I can’t believe she almost broke up with him last but thankful Derek and his charm won her over and we got a sneak peek of Derek’s butt. I must say Mckinley Freeman has a cute butt. The episode ended with Oscar finding Chase’s wife Olivia’s body buried on the new site for the Devil’s stadium in hollywood. The biggest mystery now is finding out who killed Olivia. I mean seriously that was unexpected.  I really thought they had killed Mia but who knows because they didn’t mention her at all in last nights episode. I am so excited for this season of Hit The Floor. If you aren’t watching Hit The Floor on VH1 @9pm then you seriously need to reevaluate your life haha jk but really you need to watch it.
