the-killing-cast-season-2-amcHello again, boys and girls! It’s your old pal Christina! Hope you’ve all been having a good  summer. What have you been watching? I’ve been watching a lot of Top Gear on Netflix. It’s pretty great, you should check it out, but it’s not the kind of show I come here to talk about.

Summer’s pretty great for a number of reasons. Sun. Beaches. Summer storms. World Cup soccer (hooray for Deutschland!). But also? Binge watching shows you’ve missed over the past year(s).

In the Spring of 2013, I started watching The Killing because I’d heard such great things about it, despite the fact that it had been cancelled and uncancelled. But I only made it through the first season, and maybe like two episodes of the second before I lost interest to other things in my life. But a few months later, I re-acquired my taste for binging (The Sopranos, The Shield, The Wire, Season 1 of Deadwood, etc.), and about a week ago, decided to give The Killing another whirl, this time with boyfriend in for extra commentary enjoyment.

The big difference this time around is that The Killing was cancelled again last year, but this time picked up by Netflix. Netflix is a hell of a drug an animal. The online network (I think we can pretty much call it that now, or at least we should considering it now has at least four shows under its belt—I’m counting the last season of Arrested Development and The Killing here) helped produce the season 3, the last one that aired on television, and then took over the helm when AMC decided to cancel the show again, this time for good.  Read the rest of this entry »

You guys! I admit, this one snuck up on me. It actually took a few attempts to actually get into it (at first I gave up after episode 4 the first time). But you know how it goes: your friend keeps tweeting about it, it’s getting to the end of the regular tv season and there’s starting to be a drought of new episodes of… anything, (there’s a chance at an interesting ship…). Anyway, it’s actually, surprisingly, kind of a really good show? So I thought, since I started out here (almost 2 years ago, ack) recapping a sci-fi show, I’d try to convince you to try out this one. With gifs! Who can resist gifs? 

Besides gifs, after the jump I’ve included a trailer, my opinion on what’s good (and a little bad) about the show, plus a character rundown.

In my opinion, it’s actually a great time to jump in a catch up, because the season finale is this Wednesday. It’s only a 13 episode season, so it’s not that many episodes, and it’s not like there’s a ton of other shows still airing new episodes right now. (Cause I know you’ve already binge-watched all of the second season of Orange Is The New Black). So if you prefer to watch shows with already finished seasons, that works. And if you like engaging in the social media element, people should still be talking about it.

Fair warning: I’ll be touching on a couple of plot points from throughout the season below the cut. Nothing too spoiler-y, but if you want to go in completely blank, be aware.

Hey, guys! This will be the last roundup for a little bit, maybe? Probably? And it’s a good one. Okay, so it’s just the Supernatural finale and Orphan Black, but that means this post is full of concentrated epicness. Let me know in the coming weeks if you want me to keep the gif posts going through the summer, and what shows you’d like to see featured. You can find me on twitter, or just leave a comment here.

Hey, guys! Time for another roundup of last week’s giffy goodness. Supernatural is back from a mini hiatus and the episode WAS AMAZING. Yes, I have a lot of feelings about the return of certain character, but I’ll get to that later. Also, Orphan Black is back for season two finally! Other shows you’ll find in this post are The Mindy Project, The Tomorrow People, New Girl, Hart of Dixie, Arrow, Game of Thrones and a just a few from new show Salem. Find me on twitter and leave comments, because we’re definitely going to have to discuss many, many delicious things once you make it to the end.
