I mean, come on. We all knew that was going to be my title, right?
Well, I’ve gotta say, after binging on TVD and pretty much totally enjoying it, I was not into this episode. But let’s start with the good, so once things take a turn, you can just stop reading and skip all my bitching. (Although if you’re skipping my bitching, I kind of wonder if you’ve been here before. Bitching is kind of my thing. Me and the whole internet’s thing, that is.)
So I stand by my decision to not refer to Ketsia as Tessa, because it’s fucking stupid and no, but I do kind of love the actress playing her. I feel like she’s bringing the batshit insane in the best possible way, you know? They’ve given her a lot of stupid crap to do and she’s doing it in a convincing and entertaining way. I feel like I need to award her The Shiva for how awesome she’s been. And suddenly, I’m wondering how much crossover there is between fans of TVD and fans of The League. In that particular Venn diagram, I may actually be the only person in the overlap. I can handle that.
I also loved Tyler, as always, because I feel like Michael Trevino was a real find and can do a whole lot with not much screen time. Of course, I was annoyed with his whole storyline, which does fall into the category of bitching, but I get that they needed to do a Caroline and Tyler break up (although, did it HAVE to follow a marathon fuckfest?). It seems like they may be moving him over to The Originals, which I assume will piss off some fans (of The Originals, most likely), but I think that’s a better place for him. The werewolf story has really moved over to that show, and again, I think he’s a really underrated actor. Maybe The Originals can find a way to make better use of him.
And that … was about it for the good. And so, in no particular order, the bad. (And we all totally agree that there’s no ugly on this show, right?) Read the rest of this entry »
