One Tree Hill Season 3 Thoughts!

I feel like I always start binge watching a season of this show but I’ll get about halfway through and won’t watch any for ages and I feel like that happened here. I also do this thing where I’ll make loads of bullet points at the start of the season and I feel like it’s too many so by the time we get towards the end I’m barely making any at all. How do I balance this lol

Anyway, before we dive in let’s see how my predictions panned out:

First of all, I was wrong about Brooke, she was here the whole time haha Keith did come back but not even until the halfway through the season and then…well we know what happened to him this season and that wasn’t cute. There wasn’t really an official investigation into Dan, he just kind of went about it on his own. Lucas finally spilled about his HCM so good for him and finally, Haley and Nathan did find their way back together. I knew they would.

Now onto this season of One Tree Hill:

  • Lol of course Dan is alive. Evil don’t die bitches
  • 3 months later and Brooke comes back with bangs and Peyton also got a new hair style. There’s more ways to show a time jump lads – even Deb has curly hair now haha
  • Surprise surprise Dan is out for revenge
  • Haley and Brooke living together. Oh what fun 😛
  • Nathan at high flyers getting back in the game cute
  • Dan and Deb officially divorcing yay!
  • Brooke and Lucas being casual. We see how long it lasts because Lucas has a secret and I feel like it’s hooking up with Peyton because why not
  • But then he has another secret from that night when Dan almost died so hmmm…unless it’s both the same secret
  • So much for a mystery it was Lucas who started the fire hahaha
  • Oh Lucas saved Dan’s life? He wasn’t trying to kill him? Wild
  • Does Peyton’s birth mum actually have cancer? Sounds like a lie
  • Poor Mouth heartbroken over Erica – she doesn’t deserve you Mouth!
  • Also Haley getting bullied is something I never saw like for following her dreams? Stupid
  • I can’t believe Nathan wants a full on divorce. At least he’s waiting a year before its official
  • We love a good costume party
  • Wow Mouth and Peyton dancing to disco inferno is EVERYTHING
  • So Brooke is so jealous of that girl
  • Dan running for mayor and Deb doing all these crazy things to piss Dan off is my fave. Like always be this Deb it is the best
  • Of course Peyton’s biological mum lied about being able to draw. I know she was trying to spare Peyton’s memories of her other mum. But yeah…
  • So Chris is the one that kissed Haley at the costume party…interesting
  • Peyton has a podcast now?
  • Wow we love that Karen is running against Dan is mayor. Bring it on
  • Fantasy boy draft? Sounds like fun if boys at your school are literally Chad Michael Murray but that would have never worked at my school
  • I like Brooke too much to like Rachel at all haha
  • BROOKE SLEPT WITH CHRIS THAT IS SO GROSS
  • Yassss Peyton choosing Mouth that is cute
  • Nathan can be so cute with Haley sometimes I can’t deal
  • Peyton, Brooke and Haley getting arrested for stealing clothes hahaha
  • Of course Dan became mayor, I definitely thought Karen had a chance though
  • Also I don’t remember Brooke having a history for wanting to work in fashion so this whole fashion thing kind of came out of nowhere, not that I am complaining
  • I guess this is the last we will see of Deb? I will miss her
  • Wow Dan getting into Nathan’s head about his relationship with Haley, I didn’t think that could still be done
  • By the way, I’m not even surprised it was Deb who tried to kill Dan like she was basically at her limit with him
  • But hey is Keith back for real now? And are he and Karen finally going to get back together?
  • Brooke and Lucas 2.0 is cute
  • Peyton will 100% get her heart broken by her birth mother again and I’m not here for it, she hasn’t had a lot of good things going for her at all and like I just want her to be happy
  • Was Clothes Over Bros ever a real thing – I tried to Google but nothing came up, something tells me it was with the way it’s advertised at the end of episodes
  • Omg everyone is talking about college – are they gonna go separate ways? It’s hard enough to keep up with everyone when they aren’t at school
  • Rachel is still scheming when it comes to Brooke lol I kind of hope she sticks around
  • Yass Keith and Karen
  • A school shooting and a suicide? This show was ahead of its time
  • I just gotta say though, I saw this coming when the time capsule got released. But the episode was still super tense
  • I also kind of hate that they are writing in any excuse for Peyton and Lucas to get together – THERE ARE OTHER WAYS – not to mention Brooke is going to get heartbroken once again. This is not cute guys
  • I think I was the most shocked at the end of the episode when DAN SHOT KEITH. RUDE. What the hell?!
  • I’m pretty sure Peyton will be fine which is good
  • I am sad about the guy who committed suicide, and yes the episode had a good message. I just didn’t expect it from this show – nor did I expect it so soon? It makes me think of that Grey’s Anatomy shooting episode. I wasn’t expecting it either and it broke my heart.
  • I wonder how we recover from this? I suppose we don’t but then when it comes to TV shows I feel like everyone is amazing at recovering from trauma real quick. Like Meredith Grey has been through A LOT but she still doing her job. If I was her I would’ve given up long ago haha.
  • Anyway…back to One Tree Hill
  • I knew Rachel released the time capsule
  • Mouth is so pure and him being friends with Rachel wrecks me – like I think sometimes they are cute together but then Rachel will be rude to him and I won’t stand for it
  • Karen being off the rails because of Keith has me so shocked, who knew she could be this way?
  • Also this Pete from Fall Out Boy thing is just plain weird and random and totally necessary, I want good things for Peyton but probably not this lol
  • So is Deb back for good?
  • Lucas finally stepping up about his heart, I knew he had to confess at some point
  • I was not expecting Rachel to be dating uncle Cooper lol – can’t believe she lied and broke Mouth’s heart what a bitch
  • At least Cooper is not a creeper and when he realised she was in high school left town
  • Dan having a change of heart about Nathan came way too late and sure I feel a little bad for him but he killed Keith so…he sucks. Nathan and Deb were right to get the restraining order
  • Peyton going to see Jake is what I needed in my life. We love Jake.
  • Wow she’s asking him to marry her lol that would never work, we need to stop people thinking that’s a good idea just because Nathan and Haley are making it work
  • So Nathan and Haley’s wedding day…I can sense something going wrong, you don’t start an episode out with Nathan dreaming Haley is drowning and nothing happens…
  • Deb telling Dan she tried to kill him is iconic, I honestly love her haha
  • Karen is pregnant? Damn
  • Is this show trying to make it so Peyton is always alone and has no friends – like she told Brooke she had feelings for Lucas and she is not having it at all. So it looks like they’re friendship is over once more
  • Also Brooke being pissed at Lucas for the kiss and also she keeps saying she’s been going through a lot but like has she? All I know is that she’s been making clothes…
  • Oh I see they want us to think everyone could possibly be pregnant because Brooke made everyone the same purse.
  • Also wow Rachel is crazy, but I honestly felt like she was going to do something wild like that just by how she was acting about Cooper – I personally think she has spiralled super quick compared to how we saw her in the beginning
  • I’m really annoyed they keep having this cliffhangers where they try to kill of main characters like hello I am not here for Nathan to be dying guys this ain’t cute.

So this season was jam-packed with drama like always. I feel like I always say this but like I just want some good things to happen for Peyton, compared to everyone else her life is so tragic and like for once could it be cute? I feel like it won’t ever be find until she’s finally with Lucas but I hate that, like why can’t she be happy without a man in her life?

As for the whole guess who’s pregnant thing, I don’t know who it is and I honestly don’t care? I feel like if it’s Haley that’s just crazy, isn’t it enough she married young, if it’s Brooke that’s lame because we already had that pregnancy scare and finally, if it’s Rachel well that’s just her being desperate to keep Cooper. Over it.

I am surprised about Karen though, I hope that she has her baby and keeps the memory of Keith alive. I was shocked that Dan said he would help take care of the baby but we all know he’s just feeling guilty.

I wonder what the aftermath of the accident will be, I assume Nathan will be fine because Haley is way too young to be a widow. As for Cooper and Rachel I don’t know, but I think Rachel’s time on the show is coming to an end. So we’ll see.

I don’t really have predictions this time around, I’m just kind of hoping good things happen for Peyton and Brooke and Lucas either call it quits for good or make it work.

So that’s it for now, hopefully I’ll be back soon to talk about season 4.

One Tree Hill Season 2 Thoughts

We are back with One Tree Hill and I have just finished season 2. I have to say a lot happened in this season, so much that I feel like I needed to stop watching for a while because I was overwhelmed just a bit haha.

Anyway, before we go into my thoughts for this season, let me checkout what my predictions for this season were and if I was close with any of them.

Okay well first thing is that I was wrong about Lucas and Keith staying away, technically Keith did move away later in the season but they both come back because of Dan’s heart attack.

Then we had Peyton and Brooke’s friendship, looks like it stayed pretty solid this season so hurray for that. My prediction wasn’t totally wrong about Peyton walking on eggshells with Brooke but it didn’t last long.

Next we have Nathan and Haley, and the show started off like they could handle anything as a married couple but as the season went on it kind of fell apart. Not surprised honestly.

Finally I predicted that Dan and Coach Whitey were both going to be fine, and they were! Though Coach kind of took a backseat this season as it was less about basketball and more about everything else.

Now that we have that out of the way it is time to dive into my thoughts on the whole of season 2:

  • So Lucas being away from town only lasted two minutes…cool
  • Dan is in the hospital and not dead so there’s a good sign?
  • Peyton and Brooke legit back to being friends but now Lucas hasn’t actually moved away it could cause trouble between the two
  • I can’t believe Haley’s parents let her marry Nathan, this still seems so bizarre to me. I don’t know if they make it last but like it’s so wild?
  • I guess it’s kind of cute everyone is accepting Nathan and Haley’s marriage but it’s still strange
  • Looks like Dan has a new outlook on life since his heart attack, I wonder if this continues
  • I feel like Deb’s life is falling apart and she just doesn’t know what to do :/ poor girl
  • Also Keith is sticking around to run things in Dan’s absence, let’s see how it goes
  • So Nathan is now working with Keith which is cute, I want more Nathan/Keith bonding moments
  • Dan leaves the hospital and tries to make good with Lucas but it doesn’t really work – no surprises there
  • Karen flirting with her professor is all kinds of red flags like I just don’t see it being good
  • I can’t believe Peyton almost took cocaine like damn guys that came out of nowhere, I’m glad she didn’t take it though
  • These little nothing fights between Nathan and Haley are kind of dull, I feel like they are trying to accent that yes, they will have problems but ultimately are perfect and together forever. Well I’m not super ready to jump onto this ship
  • Words can’t describe how annoying I find Felix…like can he move away already
  • That being said the dare episode was fun, Mouth doing karaoke is honestly the best thing ever and everyone should see it
  • I KNEW that girl who joined Lucas on his dares wasn’t a randomer – as the episode went on I pieced it together, wonder what trouble this will cause…
  • Oh wait so Peyton did take cocaine that one time…dang. I hope that doesn’t become a thing.
  • This whole Felix thing is annoying me so much. I just don’t like him and Brooke deserves someone that isn’t a dick.
  • Also Nathan can be real cute sometimes rejecting his dream to support Haley’s and doing all the formal stuff for her. He is precious.
  • Mouth also deserves better btw. Like being treated like crap by Felix. So rude. I want him to be with someone cute.
  • I don’t know what it is about Keith’s new girlfriend but there’s something shady about her and I cant quite figure it out…maybe it’s in my head but who knows
  • Looks like Deb and Dan have magically worked things out. Good for him for telling the truth though. I knew he would lie about his illness to get her back but he came clean.
  • Lucas and Anna, not really sure where that is going but it is clear that she and Felix have secrets and it’s only a matter of time before they come out
  • Oh so the secret was rumours about Anna being lesbian…I definitely thought there was more but okay
  • Plus someone save Peyton from herself plz
  • YASSSS JAKE. I’m so glad he back
  • Cant believe that music guy decided to kiss Haley. What a jerk
  • I can’t believe Haley almost ran away with him?!
  • Omg I knew Keith’s girlfriend was sketchy – it was a set up from Dan. Ugh.
  • So no one is going to tell Keith about his terrible girlfriend, this wedding is going to be a hot mess lol
  • Brooke had a job for five minutes and is now class president, sure
  • Peyton and Jake are playing house and it’s cute
  • Haley’s sister came in a stirred up trouble – but not anything more than what Haley stirred up for herself
  • Surprised that Haley just went off to do her thing and left Nathan – but I guess I understand why she did what she did. Still poor Nathan is a mess
  • I KNEW Lucas would have the disease, ugh I hope he is okay
  • So I guess Nathan and Haley couldn’t make it work?
  • Can’t believe Jake turned himself into the police. What a saint. I love him
  • And the coach runs away with Jenny I wonder what will happen with that
  • Wow Keith’s wedding was a disaster :/ poor guy. Ya’ll should have made better choices regarding him okay
  • I guess Dan will always be out for revenge I knew he was trash and I will always stand by that lol
  • Oh so Dan has another brother?
  • Hey dancing your problems away is a Grey’s Anatomy thing
  • Deb passed out in her garden in the morning is a mood
  • Yasss Mouth get it
  • Well Lucas almost died last season so let’s give nathan a turn
  • Lol it is too early for a what if episode
  • Or did they just reshoot the pilot with some lives swapped
  • Nathan wanting his family to come back together is cute but like they will always have problems
  • It’s sad he decided to sign annulment papers but also why does part of me think Dan just signed the papers anyway and went behind Nathan’s back because he would do that
  • Haley is pissing me off because she should have just gone back to town and been with Nathan regardless of what he said if she really loved him. Not to mention the fact she hasn’t even been calling Lucas to find out what’s going on?!
  • I’m sad Brooke found that stuff in Lucas’s boxes. She deserves happiness
  • So Haley is staying on the road and the marriage between her and Nathan is totally over :/
  • People love throwing stuff through Dan’s windows
  • Nicky took the baby :O I guess things with Jake will never work out. Poor guy
  • Of course Dan lied to Nathan about Deb’s addiction
  • And I guess that’s the end of Andy? Didn’t like him that much anyway tbh they’re relationship was just kind of meh
  • So Peyton’s mum is alive?!
  • Brooke is leaving for the summer and Lucas loves her so that’s fun
  • Yassss someone poisoned Dan – he deserves it
  • Yo and set fire to the office. So dramatic but I love it
  • Lucas left without a dad and a brother…that sucks – he was only trying to do the right thing 😦
  • Plus his mum just left to chase after Andy – OMG DID HE KILL DAN – I love jumping to conclusions but he went missing suspiciously quickly
  • Oh hi Haley!

This season was wild from start to finish haha. But now the only real question is where do we go from here? I imagine the show will deal with the summer before everyone joins senior year, and also tackle that final year of high school because it’s always big.

My predictions are that Brooke is possibly MIA for a while so they can film John Tucker Must Die because she was in that lol. Keith will come back (hopefully), Karen and Andy don’t work out because Andy knows she loves Keith. There is investigation into Dan and basically everyone looks guilty. People find out about Lucas having the disease because he needs medication. Nathan doesn’t want to listen to Haley but she is desperate to talk to him and figure things out. Can’t say for sure if they make it work but eventually they will find their way back.

If we are going my predictions the last time then these will probably all be wrong but I’m hopeful that some are right lol.

I guess I won’t know until I start watching again so I better go and prepare some snacks and buckle in.

You Season Two Thoughts

Hello You,

I have just finished watching season 2 of You and so I thought I would share my thoughts, similar to how I did for Grey’s Anatomy. I took bullet points while I was watching the show, so that is what I’m going to share.

However, I will probably add more to them since this was a quick thing and I just wanted to watch the show.

Also before we get into this I wanna say I have read both books the TV show is based on, so if you wanna know my thoughts on Hidden Bodies, the book this season was based on then feel free to check it out here.

Now onto my thoughts on the TV show:

  • Oh Joe, running away to LA because your ex you thought was dead showed up. Mood. But also it seems so random like I feel like the book did it better, I know Joe was trying to find a place Candace was never gonna find him but he literally could have gone anywhere, in the book he goes to LA to chase someone else.
  • I was so shocked to find Joe built a cage in LA but also kind of impressed. Don’t ever change man.
  • Wow in the first like five minutes of the show Joe is getting his finger cut off by a crazy guy, that’s fun.
  • Ooh Beck the ghost! I wonder how long this lasts.
  • Well that guy definitely needed to die because he was a psycho and would never have left Joe alone but what’s next for Joe and Will?
  • It is so creepy watching Joe grind up that dude omg.
  • Delilah got a huge upgrade from the books I mean she went from “Don’t fuck Delilah” to “Don’t fuck with Delilah” – you go girl.
  • I love that they needed to write in some way to kill Henderson to stay true to the books. At least in the TV show it seems like they tried to make out like Joe was being a good guy whereas in the books he kills him over some comedy sketch lol
  • Ooh Candace and Forty I see how it’s going to be. I knew we hadn’t seen the last of her.
  • Joe accidentally killing Henderson is hilarious like look at him trying to turn a new leaf but someone died anyway…Yikes.
  • Nice nod to the book with Candace using Amy’s name. I would have preferred if Amy had been in this one but I guess there’s a thrill of trying to figure out what Candace’s plan is with Joe.
  • Poor Candace having PTSD from Joe. Not surprised though I mean she was buried alive.
  • I “wolf” you. Seriously?! So much worse than that everythingship crap.
  • I’m so glad the Third Twin thing is just a reference and not Forty’s whole idea for a movie because I don’t think I could handle that crap again. It was so stupid.
  • Seeing Joe tied up like that was hilarious but I wish it had been Candace who did it and not that other woman.
  • I guess no one is going to find out about that first guy Joe killed? I mean I suppose no one really knew about him apart from Will.
  • So Candace just got paid off and went on her merry way? Okay then.
  • Ahhh enter Milo. Surprised Love is actually sleeping with him though didn’t think that would happen. Also surprised Forty hates him, I thought he loved him in the book.
  • Joe actually took a selfie so he can online date lol. Who is he?
  • Omg that whole cleanse thing too. LA has changed Joe forever.
  • I see that Love is not going to go through that whole oral issue she had in the book. Kind of sad about that though because I thought it would be hilarious. Though in the TV show she seems to be pretty kinky.
  • Ooh Joe and Delilah getting arrested for public indecency . That’s fun. Also they were kind of cute together.
  • I was wondering how they were going to kill Delilah but she finds out about Henderson. So he kills her and then that cop guy obviously – but what about Ellie?
  • Hey Joe fixed up that wall – nice.
  • WAIT he’s letting Delilah go?! Someone is really trying to turn a new leaf.
  • Forty drugging Joe is so wild. And I thought this was when Joe was going to attempt to kill Forty but I guess not.
  • DELILAH MURDERED – but who did it?
  • Omg her facial recognition worked? With her eyes closed?! Sketchy, mine doesn’t work sometimes when I have makeup on lol
  • Joe calling Will and him being totally chill about Joe having another person in the cage and possibly killing them is crazy but okay. We love a non-judging friend.
  • Hey Candace is back! Hi girl.
  • Ah she found Joe and Delilah! This is where Joe gets caught and goes to jail right?
  • I guess not she just calls Love instead. I know from the book that Love is okay with Joe being a killer and even helps him get rid of that mug of pee so this is fine. I mean in the book I was unsure if she was really in love with him or just saying it so she didn’t die but we’ll see where this goes.
  • OMG LOVE JUST KILLED CANDACE I DID NOT SEE THIS COMING.
  • Love also killed Delilah and that babysitter? Wow.
  • LOVE IS LIKE JOE I’M SCREAMING. She is not like she is in the book, she’s a killer, she wanted Joe from the beginning, she knew they were soulmates I kind of love it but was not expecting this oh my God.
  • Lol wait does Joe not like this?
  • WAIT IS JOE THE ONE WHO IS GOING TO PRETEND TO LOVE, LOVE
  • This is a turn of events, I did not expect Joe to recoil from Love, in the book, he is the one who is still head over heels in love with Love and would still do anything for her…this is weird.
  • I see that Forty has figured out that Joe is a killer and wants to free Dr Nicky. I can see why he is freaking out, if only he knew Love could be just as dangerous…
  • What is with Joe’s hair at this wedding it is so distracting haha
  • So Forty traps Love and Joe in Anavrin and wants to kill Joe. This took a huge turn.
  • Side note I think it’s nice that Joe wants to help Ellie. There is no Ellie in the books but I think it’s nice he thinks of her and wasn’t going to kill Delilah because of her. He always looks out for the kids, like Paco in the last season. I miss him.
  • SO THE COP KILLS FORTY? Unexpected. I mean I knew Forty died in the book but I couldn’t remember how. I wasn’t sure if it was going to happen on the TV show but it made sense because it was clear that Love and Joe could never be together properly with Forty in the way, at least how Joe saw it.
  • Plus I expected Joe to kill that cop because he killed him in the book lol.
  • And so it ends with Love, actually being pregnant, living in a lovely new home with the family she always wanted with Joe by her side.
  • Meanwhile Joe hates it and believes that he deserves this for all the horrible things he has done. He thinks this is his punishment, trapped with a psycho like Love because he wants his child to have a father.
  • But at the same time there’s a neighbour who he might have caught the sight of who he quite likes…

And here we are at the end!

This was a wild rollercoaster and the bullet points are way longer than I thought they would be but I knew I had a lot of things to say.

Overall the season was really good. I mean I already knew I was going to like it based on the book alone. I knew they would make changes though because that’s understandable but it’s interesting to see how they varied quite a bit from the book.

I was a little disappointed in the variations, mainly because they have changed Joe’s character from how he was. I wasn’t expecting him to recoil from Love and realise he was a terrible person. I feel like the TV show try and make you understand him and want to kind of root for him sometimes.

But I prefer that he is just bad and his thinking justifies all the wrongful actions. I guess I just prefer him be a straight up bad guy. Seeing him turn a leaf is not what I signed up for haha.

I also still can’t get over how extreme they made Love either, it doesn’t seem right but I am interested to see more of her and where it takes us. In the book I was questioning her love for Joe but in the TV show there is no question about it lol. So I wonder how raising a family will be.

But yeah, sadly there is no new book out yet so I can’t even use that as an indicator of how the next season will go. And yes, there will be another season because Penn Badgley told us lol. So I guess we have to wait. Though the book would definitely be different anyway because Joe actually went to jail.

I wanted that to happen to be honest, I was expecting him to go to jail. Surprised it didn’t happen. I know in the book he probably won’t stay in jail for long but even so, the TV show has taken a turn, where it will lead us I don’t know.

If I had to make predictions I would say that Joe pursues the neighbour, Love finds out and isn’t happy about it so maybe she tries to kill him? I say Joe makes an escape or kills Love and then…that’s kind of how far I get.

In the meantime I guess I go back to my other shows and books and patiently wait for more info, and also insert myself into every conversation about the show on Reddit because I can’t stop talking about it.

One Tree Hill Season 1 Thoughts

2018-09-07_1847

It’s time for a new show to talk about!

So since moving in with my boyfriend, it’s actually been kind of hard to find new things to watch, mainly because we both like very different TV shows haha. But I decided to start One Tree Hill because I saw it was recently added to Prime and definitely seemed like the type of show I would watch. My boyfriend does not watch though so I watch when he’s not around lol.

Anyway, I think I tried to start this show one time before, and I think I made it through like the first ten minutes before turning it off because it was a bit cringey…Well, I’ve powered through this time and I’m enjoying it.

So here are my thoughts on season 1, these blog posts will be similar to the Grey’s Anatomy ones I had where I just bullet point how I’m feeling – this show ended in like 2009 so for me to live tweet it would be dumb. So enjoy!

  • So Lucas’s dad left him because his girlfriend got pregnant but then a few months later he got someone else pregnant and stayed with them?! Lol okay
  • Did Chad Michael Murray have to train to be good at basketball or was he just already good at it?
  • Nathan’s shoulders are like super broad and it throws off his face-body ratio to me
  • I can already see Peyton and Lucas being together and Nathan and Haley but also I was trying to figure out how they were brothers in the same year so Wikipedia definitely spoiled some stuff for me
  • Lucas’s mom with Keith…eh kind of saw it coming no idea where it will go though
  • Oh is Lucas getting with Brooke?
  • Also yay Brooke is not just a dumb cheerleader, we love people with depth
  • Lol Lucas with a tattoo – tell me they get rid of it though
  • It’s cute that Nathan’s mom wants to bond with Lucas’s
  • We can all agree that Nathan and Lucas’s dad is honestly the worst character and super annoying right? Cool
  • Omg they actually had the guy who sang the intro do a guest appearance wow
  • I can’t believe they tried to almost kill Lucas off halfway through season one, he’s a main character! (I was outraged but then remembered in 90210 in the first season they almost killed off Adrianna as she had a drug overdose…all teen shows are dramatic)
  • So Luke was with Brooke and ended up almost getting with Peyton and they tried to keep away from each other and it didn’t work. Am I surprised? No.
  • Brooke deserved better from both of them though, to find out from a webcam is so skeevy.
  • Jake with his child is so cute and Jake is honestly so pure I love him
  • Dan saving Lucas was nice but that doesn’t forgive him for being such a dick about his divorce
  • Also, Keith drinking and driving did not expect that from him but I guess that leaves him and Karen on the outs for a while
  • Please tell me Keith doesn’t actually do business with Dan though
  • Poor Keith loses his business to Dan and Karen doesn’t want to marry him. Honestly, his storyline is so depressing and I hope something good comes for him
  • Jake’s ex was the girl Lucas randomly slept with at the bar oof. And she wants to be a part of her daughter’s life lol no please get rid of her Jake does not need this
  • So Nathan’s parents are getting a divorce, meanwhile, Nathan is asking for emancipation because he can’t deal with either of them – messy, messy
  • Then there’s Brooke who is pregnant?! With Lucas’s baby – yikes, don’t know where this will end up but can clearly say nowhere good
  • Haley got a tattoo of Nathan’s jersey number and it’s even worse than Lucas’s tattoo. Of all the people on the show to do dumb things, I never saw this from her. It’s not cute tbh it would have been nicer if it was placed elsewhere haha but yeah there’s that
  • Still more of Dan being the worst. criticising Nathan for trying to be independent and failing, deciding to act like a good guy and tell Lucas he always wanted custody and decided to coach the basketball team just because he can. Ew.
  • Also, Brooke not being pregnant and just being petty – mood but also not cool.
  • I hope Jake comes back. Nikki is a psycho but he shouldn’t have to run away 😦 I’ll miss him
  • I feel like Haley is totally overreacting about Nathan and the whole porn situation but okay. I totally get why she wouldn’t be cool with Nathan still having pictures of Peyton though
  • Lucas thinking running away is gonna fix him…I don’t want him to leave, I know that since he joined the basketball team things have been kind of cray for him but I think he should stick it out – I know he won’t be away forever as a main character but still. I’ll miss him
  • Keith leaving though is probably the best thing for him after the whole Karen situation, live your best life Keith
  • Back to the Dan wanting custody of Lucas thing, I guess it was cute at the time he wanted to fight for his rights but at the same time he still turned out the way that he did so I’m thinking he’s still not the best guy and will always continue to be the bad guy, which is cool with me. We love a villain
  • So they decided to show Dan with a soft side at the end of the season, only to give him a heart attack – I think they are trying too hard to get us to feel pity for him…at least a little too much
  • I do feel bad for Dan but at the same time he is mostly a horrible person so we see what happens to him
  • I thought it was HILARIOUS that Keith slept with Deb btw I didn’t see it coming at all but there ya go
  • I hope Keith has a good time away like I said he deserves it
  • Please take care of Lucas
  • Also, I so don’t know if I should trust Brooke when she had plans with Peyton to send Nikki off somewhere else – she’s still probably upset about Lucas and Peyton and like it seems like the kind of thing she would do…I guess we see what happens
  • Special shoutout to Haley and Nathan for being dumb and getting married lol
  • I really wanted more for Haley I thought she was smart, but in reality, she just got blinded by love and became another dumb girl – ugh wake up girl
  • Plus Nathan was stupid to agree with it come on boy I thought you knew better too…
  • And finally, I just want to say I can’t believe the show went out of their way to have Karen tell Lucas that there is only One Tree Hill so cheesy…

This brings us to the end of season one! No idea what’s to come but I’m intrigued to find out.

I want to predict that Keith finds teaching high school more difficult than expected, Lucas doesn’t fit in, in the new town, Peyton still iffy about Brooke so walking on eggshells, Haley and Nathan realising marriage is tough and also Dan being okay – also Coach Whitey, I hope he’s okay but somehow I see him not making it 😦

I guess we come back next post and see if any of my predictions were correct. And I’ll also try and avoid googling to see what happens because I wanna know everything lol.

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK First Impressions

2018-09-07_1847

Finally RuPaul’s Drag Race UK has landed and I thought I would share with you my first impressions of our queens!

Baga Chipz

baga.PNG

The first thing that got me was the accent. Just in general for the show. The accents haha. I’m so used to US drag race so the accents took a while to get used to.

First impression of her, when she walked into the werk room, was that was gonna be the loudmouth of the season.

Her runway was cute. I loved her OOT Queen look. Super campy.

Blu Hydrangea

blu.PNG

Representing Belfast, I am obviously rooting for a hometown gal. Plus I’ve seen her perform so I know she can turn a lipsync.

Anyway, speaking of accents – I hate the Northern Irish accent on TV so every time I hear Blu talk I cringe a little inside. But still a fave.

Also, love that she has all the facial expressions so we get all the close-ups of her haha.

Her runway looks were bomb and I am so mad she was not in the top 3, I mean SHE WAS A POUND COIN how can you not love that.

Divina De Campo

divina.PNG

That laugh. Girl. Not sure how I feel about that haha.

Let’s call her the Willam of the season – as she’s a TV personality and has been on lots of things. Plus she says she can sing, sew, style a wig and all sorts so let’s see if she can pull it out when the time comes.

Her first runway look was cute, I loved the wig. The second outfit was great too.

Crystal

crystal.PNG

When she walks in a steals her entrance quote from a meme. Eh.

She’s also not a fan of the royals and ain’t afraid to let people know it. Why do I feel like this isn’t the end of her controversial opinions? I guess we see.

Her first runway outfit was kind of meh, like I did not like the blue dress or the words. Wasn’t a fan. Her second look was cute, though not what I think of when I think of the Queen. But still, a Queen look nonetheless.

Some Ting Wong

some.PNG

She gives me life.

When she walked out in that first runway look it was EVERYTHING. Not to mention her Queen look – the stamp omg it was amazing. I really thought she was going to win the main challenge.

Cheryl Hole

cheryl.PNG

She gives me Courtney Act vibes 100%. She is gorgeous, she is blonde. I love it.

Her first runway look was super cute, loved the fake tan. Her Queen look was cute, but she definitely needed a purse.

Gothy Kendoll

gothy.PNG

Wasn’t sure how to feel about her, I did like the representation of chavs in the entrance look though lol. But it felt like she was trying to hide a bit with the high collar and everything.

Her runway look was so weak. Like her face paint was beautiful but the rest of the outfit was crap. Like this is Drag Race you cannot come out in tiger face paint and a black outfit and the weakest “Rawr” ever lol. Girl bye.

Plus the Queen look – it was terrible. I’m sorry but like when you think of the Queen you do not think of a short dress. It should have at least gone to the floor.

Sadly she didn’t seem to redeem herself in that lipsync either. It was very meh.

I don’t know what else we would have gotten from Gothy and I guess we shall never know, maybe she will do an All Stars episode in the future…

Vinegar Strokes

vinegar

She’s a doll. Very much the mum of the group and I am here for it.

Her first runway outfit was kind of meh I gotta say. But apparently, she couldn’t wear her original choice due to licensing issue lol. Her second look was better but to me looked a bit unfinished or unpolished…

That being said she turned that lipsync and was even pulling wig reveals first episode damn girl. I would have loved if she had done 4 wigs though to go with the song but I suppose ya never know what you’re lipsyncing to until the episode. Still pretty good.

Scaredy Kat

scaredy.PNG

Drag baby. Kind of makes me think of Troye Sivan out of drag lol, I think it’s the voice and the hair maybe.

Now we all know when someone has been doing drag for months that they don’t tend to last long in the competition but I have to say that Scaredy Kat really pulled it out with those runway looks. It was cute.

Also never been to a drag show? Sounds like a lie. Even before drag, if his girlfriend is a drag queen surely he’s been to one.

The Vivienne

viv.PNG

Out of drag kind of makes me think of Adam Lambert lol.

But not sure if I love the fact she purposely has “the” as part of her name.

Her runways were great and I loved when they were all shook at her real nose hahaha. But I didn’t think she would win just because they got her for wearing flats, she definitely needs to wear heels next time or Michelle will be coming for her.

Overall Thoughts

The first thing is the grand prize – I have seen so many memes about this haha. But also I am surprised. This grand prize kind of sucks, like most of the US drag queens have their own YouTube series and they didn’t have to win the competition to get one so it doesn’t seem like the best prize in the world. Plus let’s be real, a YouTube series can be filmed using a smartphone anywhere in the world so it just seems a bit meh.

Not to mention, the first prize for winning a main challenge is a badge? That isn’t even exclusive because they are giving away a similar badge at DragCon UK lol.

The first photo shoot was a bit meh. Though to be honest I never think the photoshoots are the best in the beginning. This one was a bit different because there were two parts but I wasn’t the biggest fan.

The main challenge itself was a good one, I love a good runway so it was good we got two in the first episode. A little sad they didn’t have to make anything this first episode but I suppose we will get to the sewing challenges soon enough.

Still, I am excited for this season of Drag Race, it looks like it will be a good one! Plus I know that because it’s the first season they are probably still figuring out some things bits and pieces so it will only get better from here right?

If you are watching Drag Race UK let me know who you are rooting for this season! Like I said I am obviously rooting for Blu Hydrangea this season but there are a lot of good queens out there. So we see how the season goes!

Suits Finale Thoughts

2018-09-07_1847

I just finished watching the finale of Suits and I thought I would share my thoughts.

I feel like they crammed a lot into this episode. Like they were really pushing it.

First, they finally sorted the Faye issue once and for all. I gotta say this was a little anti-climactic. I was expecting a more dramatic court scene rather than Harvey settling it in the meeting room just him and Faye.

I liked seeing everyone in the same room together though, we love teamwork.

It just felt like after all the building up of this big thing it fizzled out quite quickly. Not that we had much time to process the fact that Faye was actually gone for good because Louis was getting married.

This seemed so out of left field for me for some reason. I guess because they didn’t really mention it? Okay I know Louis asked Shelia to marry him before she gave birth and everything but I didn’t realise it was just going to come up like that. Especially because the Faye thing kind of eclipsed everything else and we never heard about Louis wedding planning, which if it’s Louis ya know that was a thing he was going to be involved in.

It made sense though, you can’t end the show forever without seeing them get married or giving birth to their child. Which, by the way why did they throw in that unnecessary drama of Shelia almost dying? Am I the only one that felt like that didn’t need to be a thing? Especially so close to the end of the episode and then to have it all be fine…Ugh.

Then we come to Donna and Harvey getting married. I cried, for sure, but it seemed so rushed. And I know they justified it and all that but you can’t just have Harvey being like “lol this won’t be us for a while” and then turn around and be like “jk marry me now though”. I felt like it wasn’t their style, I don’t think we needed to see them get married to know they were endgame.

Oh, and I was so sad Rachel wasn’t there with Mike. I know this is because Meghan Markle is now royalty but still haha. It just seemed weird and then I was surprised when they showed clips of her from the old seasons because she’s now married to a prince and to see her in an actress context is weird now. But yeah, I just felt like it was weird she wasn’t there, even though I know why she couldn’t have been. I think it would have been cool if there was an exception just so she could have stood next to Mike at Louis’s wedding but whatever.

Despite having issues with the finale I did like it. I mean it wrapped everything up in a nice way and I think it was great that Harvey decided to go and work with Mike at the end. I so cried when Harvey and Donna were saying goodbye to Louis it was so cute.

Plus the Mike and Harvey interview scene at the end was super cute too! I’m gonna miss them a lot.

Oh and those old scenes they threw in there, thought it was a bit random but I did enjoy them. I feel like they could have included way more but I know for the runtime purposes of the show it was kind of short.

Also, I am happy that they decided to make Katrina a named partner and put her name on the wall, that was a good choice guys. I love Katrina. I am sad she and Brian never worked out but I would have loved to see her be in the big leagues with the rest of the gang.

So those were all my thoughts on the Suits season finale. Overall the last season was really good, I wasn’t sure how to feel about the show after Mike decided to leave but I think it did well. Like all shows, there were times during the middle where I didn’t know if I would still keep watching or not but I stuck with it and now we are here.

I always get sad when one of my shows ends because it means I gotta find a new show, which I hate doing because it always takes me ages to find one lol but I’m sure I will.

On the bright side, other shows I watch have begun to return to our screens like Grey’s Anatomy and How To Get Away With Murder. So I guess I have some things to keep me occupied while I search for a new show.

If you have any TV suggestions please leave them below!

Currently Watching: July 2019

2018-09-07_1847

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these, mostly because I’ve been engrossed in Grey’s Anatomy the past few months. Now that I’ve finished Grey’s and have been free of university I have had time to watch some TV. So here are the shows that I have been watching recently!

Lucifer

16-9.jpg

This was a suggestion from my boyfriend after finishing Grey’s so I have been making my way through. I’m currently at the end of season 3 so should be on my way to season 4 in no time. Honestly wasn’t sure what to think about it at first but it did grow on me. I didn’t really know what the show was about before I started it but if you told me it was about Lucifer basically being a detective I probably wouldn’t have believed you lol.

Big Little Lies

big-little-lies.jpeg

I started this because I got a free pass for NowTV from McDonald’s Monopoly and they don’t have a lot of box sets on there that I wanted to watch except this one. I really enjoyed the first season of the show and the end gave me some Pretty Little Liars vibes so I was excited about the second season. Though sadly season 2 is not really doing it for me, I don’t know what it is but it’s not as good as the first season :/

Ugly Betty

1200x630bb

So I started rewatching this last year and then kind of gave up but then they put the show on Amazon Prime and I’ve been binging ever since. I actually just finished rewatching it today. Ugly Betty is a fabulous show and I have loved rewatching it this past month, I feel like I’ve never gotten through a show this fast before just because I’ve had it on basically nonstop lately.

Shark Tank

shark-tank

I wanted something to watch on Netflix one night and decided to finally tackle something on my watch list. So I started to watch Shark Tank. Since then I have kind of been obsessed, I just think it’s interesting to see the kind of ideas people have and what the sharks actually invest in. Sometimes they invest in the weirdest things. I also liked that there are tons of episodes on Netflix which makes it easier to binge.

Glee

glee_season_4_cast

I’ve been watching Glee here and there as well. I love Glee, it’s the kind of show that’s had it’s ups and downs but I really enjoyed it. Honestly growing up most of the songs on my iTunes were Glee covers and I still love them lol. So yeah been enjoying some Glee lately too.

So these are the main shows that I’ve been watching lately, you know when I haven’t been reading a bunch because I have also been doing so much of that in case you couldn’t tell. I’m honestly proud of how much I’ve been able to read but also how much TV I have been able to consume since finishing university lol. Anyway, I’m going to get back to enjoying the time I have left with no responsibility and I’ll be back soon with a new book review 😛

Grey’s Anatomy Season 15 Thoughts

2018-09-07_1847

Here we are this is it. The last season of Grey’s Anatomy I needed to watch before I was all caught up.

This season had a lot going on, although when I think back I think the main focus really was on Owen’s love triangle with Amelia and Teddy. I felt like out of everything this season I was commenting on that a lot lol.

However, the show had a lot of other good things this season and definitely had me crying on multiple occasions. The show is definitely in a good place right now and I am so excited to see what the future holds.

But for right now, here are my thoughts on Grey’s Anatomy season 15:

  • Hi Chris Carmack! Our new ortho God – replacing Callie – it’s been a while since we had someone in that department
  • Who is the Asian guy with him though? Who also has a thing for glasses – hi we see you
  • Lol okay but Teddy coming back and going to Owen’s and Betty answering the door and her freaking out and everything – I did see it coming but I wish she had stuck around…
  • This definitely isn’t the last we’ve seen of Teddy but like I need Owen to know he’s gonna have a child!
  • Honestly, I was rooting for Amelia and Owen but if he can be with Teddy? I wouldn’t be mad about it…
  • Alex didn’t get on the board, but it’s okay because Bailey just made him Chief? Lol can’t wait to see where this goes
  • Yasss Jo Wilson coming up with the innovative ideas – excited to see where this goes
  • Meredith having all the dreams about all the hospital men lol same girl same. But also, I guess it’s time for her to get back on the horse. But also RIP Derek we still love you and miss you, I see Meredith retired the ferry boat scrub cap last season and everything ugh my heart
  • Alex as chief for one day and already spending all the dolla and firing that intern for the second time – love that
  • So Jackson just left out of nowhere – cool, cool I know he’s not leaving the show but when does he come back?
  • Also Jo is the only one to get married and actually change her name – cute
  • C’mon Meredith with the shopping, excited to see where this goes
  • Okay Meredith dating Ted Mosby is something I would have never imagined so thanks Grey’s lol – but seriously he was basically the same guy on Grey’s except he did software and then he said that one thing and ruined it all, classic Ted
  • Link vs DeLuca for Meredith’s affection huh? Interesting lol
  • YASS glasses and the other guy kissing in the lift – I support that 100% I hope they get together
  • Catherine with cancer :/ gosh darn it nothing is going well for Richard…
  • Plus Richard going to that bar and smashing up everything – loved that, I mean yes he got arrested but I stand behind it
  • Maggie and Jackson are over now? That didn’t last long…
  • I mean I understand why Maggie would be angry that Jackson was talking to everybody but her but at the same time she wasn’t exactly talking to him either…
  • Also Teddy you totally had a chance to tell Owen and you still didn’t come on girl
  • Oh my gosh and also when Meredith was walking through the hospital on the Day of the Dead episode and they had to have George come out of nowhere and everyone else I cried like a baby – like GEORGE still not over it…Lexie and Derek and Mark too – AND THE DOG just hit me right in the feels. They had no right
  • I cried when Amelia was hugging Betty when she came back – I’M AN EMOTIONAL WRECK THIS SEASON – but seeing Amelia loving Betty like her own child, so beautiful
  • Love that Kim and glasses are having sex in the ambulance during a storm while everyone else is stuck in lifts because the power lines have fallen – you better keep those two safe or I swear to God – also yeah I caught the Asian guy’s name in this episode but still not glasses? My bad…
  • Okay so Teddy drops the bomb and now her, Owen and Amelia be stuck in that lift – ready for the T to be spilt honey
  • COME THROUGH DeLuca throwing his hat into the ring – we love a good love triangle. Though nothing will ever be as fun as Derek vs the vet from the early days lol
  • I LOVE that Alex was the one to catch glasses and Kim lol I love that he gave them advice about rooms that lock – I see you Karev, I see you
  • DeLuca speaking Italian to Meredith ugh I love it. And I loved even MORE that she spoke Italian too – I ship it
  • BUT we can’t discount Link because he’s still playing
  • I hope that they can save Catherine because so far all of Richard’s great loves have died and I just don’t know how he will survive if Catherine also dies…
  • Owen now has to decide if he wants to be with Teddy or Amelia and at this point I really don’t know who I want him to be with because he’s good with both of them. And he kind of has children with both of them so like…what’s he gonna do lol
  • Okay so Owen chose Amelia and he and Teddy will always be friends? I guess I can be okay with that. Especially because it seems like Teddy is getting cosy with Tom
  • I hope Bailey and Ben work things out, I mean she’s getting help for her problem and she working through stuff but they so cute together
  • Also yasss Meredith and DeLuca – when I first heard about these two I wasn’t sure about it but…the show has made it grow on me
  • Okay so Betty’s parents are now in the picture and they almost took Leo away from Owen – man that would have been heartbreaking, it’s sad that Betty is going though…
  • Meanwhile, Teddy and Tom are becoming a thing and Owen is not cool with it lol
  • Ooh DeLuca’s dad has arrived, I wonder what trouble this is going to bring…
  • Not really trouble but a baby in a bag? I don’t know if this is going to be genius or the start of his mental decline
  • Also love Catherine and her family having food in the limo – it’s cute, love a good family moment
  • I 100% stan this Schmit and Kim relationship it is too cute for words I can’t even deal
  • Owen and Amelia officially over…kind of sad about it because I wanted Owen to have a good partner after Cristina. But at least he has his baby which is super cute so yay for Owen! And he even has another baby on the way so double yay!
  • Jo finding out about her biological mother…I wonder what this will lead to
  • So DeLuca’s dad sticking around didn’t last long, didn’t think it would tbh at least he didn’t really put a baby in a bag though – still seems super crazy
  • Look at Bailey advocating for those who need help with their mental health – yasss queen you tell Alex to look after his mum
  • Amelia and Link? I mean from the start of the episode when she ran into him at the conference I KNEW something was going to happen between them. It’s just so soon after Owen, I don’t think this will be anything good either lol
  • Okay so like I know that Teddy is with Tom and everything but her moments with Owen and the baby this season have been too cute so I need more of that
  • The episode where Jo is helping that patient deal with her injuries from rape was so powerful. I don’t really have other words to describe it.
  • I just hope Jo feels she can open up to Alex about everything that happened with her birth mum, although I totally understand that she needs her own time to process and heal
  • Love that Alex was getting the interns to do all his Chief paperwork lol he truly was a great Chief
  • Meghan came back just to call Owen out on his shit and to get some help – interesting. I mean I know his life was messy but I didn’t know if he really needed to talk to someone about it but there ya go
  • Also Amelia’s other sisters are crazy – I almost forgot that Derek had other sisters haha at least she also has Meredith and Maggie, they good ones
  • Btw Link is such a cutie standing up for Amelia with her family maybe this is the good relationship Amelia has post-tumour
  • Okay I know Jo is going through this thing and doesn’t wanna talk to anyone about it but I’m super worried about her I think she needs to go to therapy it seems to be working for Owen
  • Jackson asked Maggie to move in with him and she is freaking out lol that’s fun
  • Jo is definitely having a breakdown right now someone help her please
  • Right okay Owen who you going to choose because as much as I like love triangles I want this one to end
  • DeLuca told Meredith he loved her and she blanked him – it was sweet but definitely too soon for her
  • Bless Meredith for helping Jo get back on her feet. their relationship has grown so much! I remember when Meredith hated Jo lol
  • DeLuca taking the fall for Meredith gosh darn it man is it possible to love him more? What an angel
  • Also come through Teddy and Hunt! They better make it work or I swear I’m done with them
  • Please tell me Hunt, Schmitt and that blood donor girl make it through the fog alive…we need people to be saved we don’t need more death please and thanks
  • This season finale had me all over the place
  • First of all, Owen and Teddy having their baby – yes so about this, excited to see their family life in the next season. But also super sad that Tom is going to have his heart broken I mean he was just sitting in that apartment all day building baby furniture for a woman who is about to dump him and he doesn’t even know :/
  • Maggie and Jackson went camping and it was a disaster but I could sense that coming. I guess this is the end of that relationship – but also Jackson went out in the fog and never came back and I kind of want him to stick around on the show but something tells me this could be his exit?
  • Amelia deciding to find out who she is without Owen is smart. I think it’s good she’s not just going to jump into this relationship with Link because it would just be another cycle of on again, off again and I’m ready for better things for Amelia
  • Is Meredith actually turning herself in and going to jail? This is going to be interesting. I really don’t want her to go down for this but honestly with the way this show goes she will probably get away with it. I mean Bailey reminded us all of the Izzie Elvat wire situation and they seemed to be okay with that? Lol wild times
  • Jo is getting the help she needs and I am proud of her. My heart breaks for Alex though not wanting to let her go but I think this is going to be good for them.
  • Also yes they got the blood donor to save that child so that was great thanks guys
  • And once again, Kim and Schmitt prove to be the cutest couple on the show.

So here we are guys, I’m all caught up!

It has been a real rollercoaster. But I have loved it a lot. And I’m excited for the next season already!

I also think this brings an end to these Grey’s Anatomy blog posts – it’s been fun but I am excited to move on to posting other things on my blog, and while I will still be following the show I feel there is no need for these posts to continue. This is just something I wanted to do to share my thoughts when I was behind, now I can livetweet with everyone else lol

But it has been great, and I do like when I have regular content to post here so I’m sure I’ll be back with another blog post soon enough, it just won’t be Grey’s Anatomy related. Now if you’ll excuse me…I think I need to find a new show to watch.

Grey’s Anatomy Season 14 Thoughts

2018-09-07_1847

Grey’s got it’s groove back! So after me saying the last season wasn’t great, I actually really liked season 14.

That being said the show did not do well this season when writing out two of its main characters. If there was anything to fault this TV show for it would definitely be for the way it decides to get rid of people. Some people have had great exits and others you can tell they didn’t really think about…

But they are good at bringing in so many new people you kind of forget about the old ones…

That being said if there was ever like a good reunion episode where they just brought everyone back I wouldn’t be mad. Even if you could just bring George, Derek, Lexie, Sloan and everyone else back from the dead like that would be cool, I wouldn’t even care I need that lol.

Anyway, this season I enjoyed. I liked seeing all the people there for Owen at the beginning and the innovation contest being brought into Grey Sloan. I love seeing the doctors excel and get competitive. And I’m even more excited to see what season 15 brings, but for now here are my thoughts on season 14 of Grey’s Anatomy:

  • So Owen’s sister is back and is played by the actress that plays Scottie in Suits – hi how are ya? Also guess they couldn’t get the actress back who played Owen’s sister in his imagination that one time.
  • It’s so weird to see Teddy back again after all this time, I missed her, she looks great. I can’t believe someone that left the show actually came back AND she sticks around! (Yes I looked it up) excited for her to be back
  • It’s so great to see Owen with Riggs, Teddy, his mum and his sister – it’s cute to see him have people, I feel like he’s been lonely lately because Amelia is being the worst
  • Like hi your husband’s sister just came back and you are dealing with stuff but you should be there for him because he’s your husband? Come on guys
  • DeLuca has a sister? Nice. I’m glad it didn’t take Arizona long to get over the fact Minnick ghosted her lol
  • I could sense a Maggie and Jackson thing blooming at the end of last season and when April told Maggie that’s how Jackson felt it confirmed it – BUT they are being super awkward around each other now – I guess Jackson wanted things to play out a different way
  • Okay so Amazon Prime just don’t give you subtitles for what DeLuca and his sister say in Italian so…that’s fun? I like to know what people are saying even in another language – I don’t care if you can get the gist I feel like I’m missing out
  • Update: They do provide subtitles when it’s important to the story otherwise it’s just DeLuca and his sister yelling at each other in Italian lol
  • Yes Jo and Alex get back together! Finally
  • I loved the female energy in episode 2 with Bailey throwing her heels out, Meredith and Amelia doing badass surgeries like yasss girl power
  • AMELIA HAS A TUMOUR – damn – now we see what’s going on
  • Okay but Harper Avery dying was so random lol
  • So Riggs definitely leaves with Megan right? That’s how this goes? Eh ain’t gonna miss him now that she’s alive and he’s got no reason to be working there he can go
  • DeLuca’s sister is all about spreading the joy and orgasms lol I hope she sticks around
  • Okay I’m going to say no she doesn’t because Arizona is like “I accidentally broke up with her and told her Sophia’s coming home” and she’s been on Tinder so I guess that’s over
  • Actually she does stay and gets with Owen lol DeLuca hates his life, every roommate he gets his sister sleeps with them – messy messy
  • Love that Jackson is rich now and is just like “just bought a boat bitches”
  • I really like when you see all the guys together – we’ve had a lot of girl bonding on the show recently so I think it’s good when we see the guys together too
  • So I guess that’s both Megan and Riggs out of the picture – I did kind of like seeing them both in the army with Owen and Teddy – that is a spin-off I could watch – those characters together are just great
  • Also love Meredith on the cover that magazine – slay queen, slay
  • AND a Harper Avery nomination yassss – so proud of Meredith
  • So because Jackson’s mum told Jackson said he and Maggie are siblings that’s stopping that right? I mean I was thinking about this when Maggie came to dinner I was like…Catherine and Richard are married and Maggie and Jackson are their children so…yeah okay let’s not have that a thing I mean it’s not really bad but since they said siblings now I can’t – I mean sure they did it on Gossip Girl with Dan and Serena but I just could not see it be a thing on Grey’s lol
  • I cried like a baby watching Meredith get her Harper Avery – she deserved it, she been through so much – Derek would have been so proud :’)
  • Wow so the hospital has been hacked and everything is going to shit – great cool – love a disaster
  • And Jo’s husband is back at the worst possible time – of course
  • Also can’t believe Ben is quitting surgery to be a firefighter now lol make up your mind bro
  • So Jo’s husband comes back asks for a divorce, gets hit by a drunk driver and dies…wow lol I mean he totally deserved it but all that stuff happened so fast
  • Come through hacker intern who saved the hospital – but what did the FBI end up doing then? lol
  • I can’t believe they hired that glasses intern – he’s such a mess
  • And then there’s April who is totally losing her faith – sleeping with that intern, no good will come of this
  • Jackson and Maggie are doing the dating thing? There’s definitely feelings there so…are we on board with this? I guess we don’t have to be because Maggie is currently dating some guy called Clive lol
  • It’s so sad that Bailey and Ben had to give Tucker that talk with the police 😦 I mean I know it’s the reality we live in but it broke my heart
  • Are they ever gonna explain more of a backstory for DeLuca and the intern or what lol
  • I see Hunt and DeLuca’s sister are out and Arizona and her are back in just like that – I wanted more for Hunt guys he still needs someone good
  • Oh and Bailey and a heart attack? So not cute y’all I’m glad she’s okay
  • Love when the doctors are competing against each other – like a good healthy competition
  • Wow April has gone totally off the rails – reminds me of when Cristina decided to work at the bar haha
  • Yass Alex and Jo finally engaged – they so cute
  • So DeLuca’s intern finally said I love you, now what happens?
  • So Maggie’s bf was married lol awkward. Luckily Jackson has swooped in – are we here for this or are we not? Still on the fence
  • Meredith can not give up on her invention just because some “aunt” came over for her own agenda – that is not the Grey way
  • Teddy and Hunt were almost a thing…so close… :/ I definitely was happy crying when they were together though like please make this a thing
  • So everyone is okay with the Jackson and Maggie thing – okay cool I guess I can get on board
  • I knew Meredith wasn’t gonna give up on her idea, thank God Jo talked some sense into her
  • Also it seems really weird that Sofia randomly decided to move back with Arizona…did anyone else feel this?
  • Another thing is why hasn’t anyone done anything about April yet like I know people have tried to talk to her but like can they try harder lol
  • Okay so April has found God again and everything is okay, I’m glad it kind of resolved itself but at the same time I thought it was going to take longer
  • I can’t believe that Alex and Amelia couldn’t save Kimmy 😦 I guess they can’t save everyone but it was so hopeful in the beginning
  • What did Jackson do to ruin the Averys? He definitely should have looked into that lawsuit
  • DeLuca’s girlfriend leaving because she ran a red light and almost got deported is a wild one. Though not that mad about it because their relationship never really developed much at all – seemed like a filler thing
  • Hunt looking to adopt is super cute, it’s about time he gets a kid, he deserves happiness in his life
  • Wow that intern thinks he’s so big by suing for wrongful termination – mate just accept you lied and moved on
  • Yasss Amelia stepping up to be a sponsor – she’s come so far
  • Alright so Harper Avery was a terrible privileged white guy that sexually harassed a lot of women – I should have seen it coming but I didn’t. At least now the foundation is going to do well because Catherine is getting the credit she deserves for being a boss ass bitch – we stan Catherine Fox!
  • They used Sofia for a crappy plotline to have Arizona leave the show? Um No. Unacceptable. She needs a better exit than that. And Callie definitely deserved a better exit too like what is it with this show and its crappy endings for characters? I’ll always be grateful they didn’t kill them off but at the same time EVEN STEPHANIE THE INTERN WHO WAS ON LIKE TWO SEASONS had a better write-off than this…
  • And they think that they can have April almost die and then just decide to leave and go off with Matthew the end? Nah again not the best exit. I mean I KNEW as soon as I seen Matthew that something was up. No guys.
  • I can’t with these crappy exits.
  • On the bright side, I am so glad that Alex and Jo’s wedding happened, maybe not the way they planned but I still enjoyed it
  • Also Teddy is back and she’s pregnant!!!! I love this. I can’t wait to see where this goes…

ONE SEASON LEFT GUYS.

It’s been a long journey and I’ve loved it so much. I mean normally when I binge watch TV shows I have to take a break from watching them because I get sick of the characters but not with Grey’s – the only time I’ve went a day without watching Grey’s is if I’m with my boyfriend because he started to watch it with me in the beginning but we were getting through it too slowly so he let me watch on my own. He’s literally only seen the first couple of seasons lol.

So yeah, I’ve been watching Grey’s what feels like non-stop for the last few months and I can’t say anything bad about it. If you want a binge-worthy TV show this is it AND it’s not even like it’s short AND IT’S STILL GOING. So I mean it’s a win win situation.

But yes, one season left to go – the big one season 15. It sounds weird but like this seemed like something I wasn’t going to get to when I first started watching. I mean you hear the show has a load of seasons and you feel like you’re not gonna catch up to watch the rest of the show but here it is.

Once I watch season 15 I will finally be able to watch in real time with everyone and I’m so excited for that because then I can stop avoiding spoilers! It’ll be so good.

Okay, I’m going now, I’m excited for the new season and what it holds and you bet there will be one more of these blog posts coming your way very soon!

Grey’s Anatomy Season 13 Thoughts

2018-09-07_1847

Here we are another recap for Grey’s. You know, it’s going to be so weird when I’m not doing these anymore. I have predicted that I will be caught up by the end of season 15 and then after that, I’ll be watching the show in real time with everyone else.

It’s been a wild ride we’ve been having through the seasons, while also trying to balance my final semester of uni work… but I think it’s been good. I have actually really enjoyed having a long TV show to binge watch over this time, as I think having to find some new entertainment after one or two seasons would have stressed me out.

I’m feeling kind of reflective and sentimental in some ways because I just finished my dissertation and that was a journey…but anyway enough with that – that will come in a later blog post lol

Time to share my thoughts on Grey’s Anatomy season 13:

  • Alex beat up DeLuca and now he’s pressing felony charges – eek. So much fall out and nothing good.
  • Maggie finally asked Riggs out but Meredith told him to say no. Definitely gonna be ugly when Maggie finds out about those two. Messy messy.
  • The clinic still exists! And Alex is working in it. I wonder how this DeLuca and Alex thing resolves itself.
  • Okay but for real Meredith just tell Maggie about Riggs
  • April and Jackson actually being good parents and cute is exactly what I need
  • Amelia and Hunt are working on the marriage and getting to know each other that is cute
  • When are going to find out what happens with Alex and DeLuca because they are dragging it out – I mean it’s only been 4 episodes but I’m impatient
  • Also, I hope DeLuca gets some friends, I feel like he doesn’t have any – I guess Jo is there but I don’t know, I don’t want him to be alone, though sometimes I forget he lives with Arizona until they bring it up lol
  • So Amelia and Hunt were okay and now they aren’t – she definitely has to tell him about the baby situation – he would totally understand
  • Oh my God Murphy is back! I definitely did not see that one coming, I mean normally when people leave they don’t return. I totally forgot she existed, to be honest…
  • Side note: I looked up that Callie just doesn’t come back – she just straight up left for New York and that was it – kind of sad because I’ll miss her… Why is it when someone leaves the show it seems so abrupt? Like it wasn’t even like she got a real send off it was just Arizona being like “go to New York” and she did. The end… Not a fan – I shouldn’t have to Google if someone has left the show for good, it should be clear from the show’s context. That being said I’m super glad they didn’t just kill her off – had enough death thanks
  • Lol April on Tinder – of all the people I didn’t think she was gonna go there
  • So Amelia told Hunt the truth and that didn’t go well but when you just yell at him “I don’t wanna have a baby” that’s probably why…
  • So this woman is just gonna come in and take Richard’s job? Not cute.
  • Jo finally told Alex the truth – good. I knew he would understand. He’s a good guy. But she should have told him sooner and saved all this fall out.
  • Lol this woman makes it so easy to hate her – love that everyone is fighting for Webber
  • Also good to know Amelia just ran away – like she does – I need her to be good with Owen and for them to be cute because they never really have good moments, I mean they do it just doesn’t ever last
  • Minnick is not going down without a fight – which means I actually had to look up her name so I could stop referring to her as “this woman” gross
  • I can’t believe Bailey made April interim chief of General Surgery and took out Meredith – that’s how you know they came to play
  • Also, DeLuca is a really decent guy – like he’s attractive and charming and he just dropped the charges on Alex like damn boy – you a fave
  • So everyone be fighting then and Minnick just on her merry way doing things – ugh she’s annoying
  • Do I like Minnick with Arizona? Eh… we see how it goes but I knew Richard was going to find out eventually, Arizona was trying too hard to keep it secret
  • And Meredith needs to decide if she wants to get with Riggs or not – I’ve kind of accepted Meredith is gonna move on but they’ll never have that epic love like McDreamy and Meredith
  • This Maggie’s mum cancer thing is not gonna end well I can already sense it
  • Yeah see, she dies :/ why do people’s parents come on the show only to get ill and die? Like was it so hard for Maggie’s mum to be okay? She already lost her birth mum – not fun
  • I also think about how it must be when you’re ill and you’re around all these doctors like aren’t you lucky to be having dinner with a bunch of them and something goes wrong?
  • Also what was with that episode with Jackson and his dad? Is that a filler or is there something more gonna happen with them?
  • So Meredith and Riggs still not happening? I feel like he’s being super patient but is it really gonna pan out?
  • And can Amelia please decide what’s going on with her and Owen it’s kind of annoying
  • Of course Meredith is on another dangerous flight – this is not cute after what happened the last time guys
  • Finally Meredith and Riggs! Woo
  • But also she can’t get rid of that tumour that her and Derek drew – it’s like throwing away the post-it you just don’t do it
  • I also guess we aren’t getting more out of Jo and Alex this season? It’s kind of been lulled down lately…
  • Just as I say that Alex goes looking for Jo’s husband WHO IS WILLIAM SHUSTER FROM GLEE HAHAHAHAHA wow
  • Sad nothing actually happened between him and Alex though – I mean I’m also glad because at least Alex isn’t going to jail or anything but still…now what happens between Alex and Jo?
  • WTF rapist in the hospital with Edwards – she sets him on FIRE AND THERE WAS AN EXPLOSION
  • Damn Edwards is such a badass – you know what I ain’t even mad she leaving I think I’m glad they didn’t just kill her off which would have been the easy thing to do but she survived and is a queen
  • Also Megan’s alive?! Okay I spoiled this for myself so I always knew this was going to happen lol but still so random
  • This means Riggs and Meredith can’t be together – did the show know that everyone was gonna hate Meredith with someone who isn’t Derek and so decided this wasn’t the time lol, either way, I am okay with it
  • Poor Owen though, his life is just turned upside down lately – like they literally went this whole season with Amelia and Owen being married but like not really married because Amelia left the house ASAP lol and now his sister is actually alive?! So crazy…
  • And Minnick got fired yassss – I mean okay I am sad about her and Arizona a little but eh time to move on

So to summerise, this season was all about Minnick taking over but not really, Meredith being wishy-washy about being with Riggs but it doesn’t even matter because Owen’s sister is alive so that’s over and I guess some other things that kind of faded into the background after a while aka the whole Alex thing.

I gotta say this season was kind of meh, I feel like they knew it because they decided to throw in an exciting season finale lol. But I guess that’s okay – not every season can be a winner. I guess I was just expecting more from it, it did have promise but then was kind of more less the same things over and over again.

Also yeah Murphy came back for like 3 episodes and now she’s just disappeared again? Why bring her back if you are going to get rid of her lol. Random.

But yes, the season wasn’t the best, but we are in the home stretch. Just two more seasons left! I’m excited but also I will be sad when it’s over because I don’t know what I’ll be doing with my life then…And I mean that literally because I predict I’ll be caught up in a few weeks and I’ll have finished uni then and I will just have all the free time but no more Grey’s to watch…

I guess I have to figure something out, but for right now I shall treasure the time I have with Grey’s, see you after the next season.
