PLL – Final Review

10 Jan

For seven seasons I watched with the rest of you the ups and downs of four teenage girls that turned into women and their friends.  There was torture, sometimes pure horror, murder, many deaths but sometimes also fun, romance, silliness and always friendship.

If you recall originally I had plan to review each new season 7 episode but time wasn’t allowing that, too many changes in my life.  This review was written almost two months ago, I sent it to my bff and then moved on. I apologize for the delay.

In real life I would still want to have such close relations that is friends who get the who of me and still are able to fully communicate despite our differences.  In the show they go through a lot quite dramatically of course but they have what maybe is a universal closeness with others.  It was the all-it-could-be at times and a hot mess at others for certain.

I plan to stick with reviewing the main female characters with and without their spouse/boyfriend/companion instead of the storylines.

I will start with the littlest of the liars, though not the least, Aria Montgomery. When we first meet Aria she has only just returned from Iceland, for a year away from Rosewood with her family. The time away was precipitated in part by the fact that one of her best friends, Alison has gone missing.  The stress and strain on her and her friends was quite intense; the Montgomery’s chose to take Aria out of harm’s way or so that was the hope.  Another reason for the year long drip we find out is that Byron, Aria’s father had an affair with a student this information isn’t kept hidden too long in the first season.

PLL – S07 Episode 5

7 Sep

Welcome to episode 5 of Pretty Little Liars season 7.

We open with Aria standing on Alison’s lawn holding a casserole, its funny and somehow Aria reminds me of Wednesday Adams in her dark outfit.  It is a surreal scene for certain.  Alison drives up with Mary Drake at the wheel she seems as surprised as Aria, whose mouth drops open. Mary insists that Alison needs her rest and cannot talk for like two minutes, but Alison is able to get away with a long good bye to Aria.  Alison insists to Aria that its okay she watching Mary like a hawk, basically.

epi 5 aria outside

What I liked about this scene with Aria and Alison is they finally seemed to be on the same page against a common enemy.  Alison has caused so much drama its hard to see her as a victim sometimes.  My favorite line from her was “she is just going to keep acting like a demented den mother,” in her reference to Mary who is watching them as they speak.  That was kind slick from Alison.    Cue Creepy theme song.

PLL S07 Epi 4 Dead Man thy name is Archer

30 Aug

Hi again, and lucky me I have a chance to get another review done, that will be two in two days I am on a roll.  Let’s get started with those Pretty Little Liars the final season (7) episode.

Okay so I see what happened in the beginning of the last episode it was a few minutes later basically the same way they are starting this one off.  The girls are digging a grave, which if you look back over the series they do quite often.  I did a quick search hoping someone was a curious as myself but to know avail.  I did find some odd topics that have nothing to do with this episode.

aria and em epi 4

Emily, Spencer and Aria are doing the grave digging while Hanna is in shock in the car since she did the actual crashing into Elliot with the car and Alison is in shock on the ground having seen her husband/psycho doctor killed.

hanna shock epi 4

Hanna’s shock wears off first as she comes to help dig, Aria doesn’t know why they couldn’t go to the police to tell the truth.  Lots of conversation happening at once, something about how to get Alison back to the hospital, also what version of the truth would they tell the police and why didn’t Hanna know which peddle to push to not run over Elliot, low blow Spencer, Yikes.  Finally Alison comes over to the digging area, squats on the ground and reaches in to get Elliot’s bag, “here you will need this.” ha ha at least she is thinking.  Cue creepy music, round one is done.

PLL S07 Episode 3 The Devil She Married

29 Aug

Welcome back to my long delayed review of Season 7 episode 3 of Pretty Little Liars, please forgive thankfully Netflix has the episodes for us to enjoy at least through the summer time.  I honestly thought I had done this review.

So lets begin.

This episode seems to start in the middle of a sentence, you know like we missed something and here we are.  Hanna is looking at a ring in a box, a big shiny engagement ring when she hears Aria she puts it on but hides her hands.  Aria notices only that Hanna had burn marks on her back.  That is some serious A.D.-NESS, leaving physical evidence.  Of course we all know that happened when AD had Hanna locked up in her unmentionables.

Emily then sends out sent out some texts letting everyone know that Alison is worse than she was before and Emily sees Mary arguing with Elliott, that actually happened last week, right how oddd. hmmm.  They meet up to discuss this new turn of events, and get no where really they decide to split up with Spencer separating from the group while Aria remembers the night that Alison married Elliot and wishes she hadn’t married them. Its not like she should have known her smiling friend was unhappy, seems a waste of guilt actually.

PLL S07 Episode 2 Secret People

13 Aug

Hi all you Pretty Little Liars Fans is time for another fun fanciful recap from our last season ever of the show.  Let’s get started.

This time we are mesmerized with some thrilling conversation, she wrote sarcastically :),  from Hanna and Mary Drake. It is by the by the most boring exchange of information I can remember on this show, not only does it seem to be in black and white for no good reason other than maybe because it is dark outside.  Anywho, it turns out that Mary who is a family secret of the Delarentis, wasn’t holding Hanna hostage in only her underwear but some other perv who has yet to be found.  Mary just happened to show up to Hanna’s rescue on that dark road in the middle of nowhere.  I have to say that is some kind of coincidence.  Cue theme song.

PLL S7 E1 Time is Not on Your Side

9 Aug

Well its time again for another recap of Pretty Little Liars.  This season is special because a couple of years ago the then ABC Family channel decided to renew this show for two seasons at one time.  I never thought that was a great idea in any way shape or form.  It wasn’t good for the audience because we really stopped caring since we knew no matter what there was another season on the way.  I realize that is my opinion but with all the false starts on Who is A, I had begun to lose interest to begin with.  I figured oh well when its all over maybe I will just watch on Netflix or something like that.  I doubt I was the only one feeling that lack of interest but still we had a bit of curiosity, but moving forward.


Today’s Season 7 episode begins out with our Lovely Liars digging a grave or a pit or something in the ground.  They are upset and mention Hannah as though she was no longer in the land of the living, hmm odd right.

Then we see those words that always causes confusion if you look away from the screen or someone yells from the other room, 4 Days Earlier.  That is our cue to go back in time to figure out why they were digging, got it?

Pretty Little Liars Update Season 7

Friends from College Netflix Original

21 Jul

Hi all, trying out this new Netflix show, Friends from College

MY rating 0 out of 5 possible stars.

I was not that impressed with episode one despite Cobie Smulders from How I Met Your Mother. The first thing I thought when I saw she was with a black/multiracial guy was oh NO they have put her out to pasture.  I say that because in my mind as soon as an actress/actor starts having lead roles with others outside their race then suddenly every project they get is with actors outside their race. I realize that sounds racist but in America I totally think that is how it works.   I could be wrong and I hope that I am, but it was a thought that I had, we will see what happens.  Personally people are all the same to me.

The actual show has some serious problems.

1. The main problem stems from serious topics such as adultery being treated as no big deal.  Two of the characters have been having an affair for twenty years.  No idea how only one other person knows, except till now they have lived in different states.  Turns out the guy is popular around town which makes no sense because he just moved.  A major plot hole.  The infertility of a couple is also treated as a joke which is in the second episode when they go to the clinic, the interaction with the doctor is nonsense, weird jokes and he writes on a piece of paper the amount of the procedure instead of having them speak with financial department.  Doctors don’t do the numbers, they just pick up the checks, don’t the writers watch tv.

2. None of the characters are likable.  The two having the affair are not sympathetic characters. She has money and over compensates but being overly generous and the husband that guy from Allie McBeal that was totally obnoxious says he doesn’t care about any thing but his family, not a real compliment to anyone, just sounds selfish.  Even the wife and husband being cheated on have plot lines that at this point I don’t know or care about. The wife, Cobie, has fertility issues which is sad but the dryness of her personality is beyond boring.

3.  Another thing, I am on the second episode and I cannot tell you any of their names.  Its because again I don’t care enough about them to want to remember.

4.  Fred Savage from the Wonder Years is one of the college buddies who was a cute tv kid, and now handsome actor.  I think he is the publisher for the cheating guys book or something.  Its not a riveting topic.  Cheating guy wrote a book his wife loves but everyone else that read it thought it sucked.  Hmmm, boring tv.

There are other friends in this show, I think, but mostly its about cheating guy and his wife.

I go back over to watch more of the second episode and a guy in the middle of the office surrounded by a bunch of other men, in a meeting pulls out his “**nis” I mean really does it and puts on the table.  Who writes these crap shows.  I am done!!

Update: As you can tell this was created real time review that didn’t go so well because I became fed up with it.  This is why I generally write about shows I have enjoyed or at least have been curious about.  This particular show in this post was one I saw on Netflix and began watching right away.

Supernatural FanGirl The Beginnings!

17 Jun

I thought it was time I revealed some Supernatural fangirl thoughts I have been having about the show.  I believe having a blog gives you that opportunity to share about what makes you think the way that you do, in this case why I chose to watch some shows over others.

———–NOTE: when Supernatural was in Season 1 Cassie was a female any reference to Cassie in my Posts are about HER not Castiel————–

It all started not so many years ago, close to fourteen, I suppose as the time in supernatural world has flown by for me.  There was a time in my life while I was an avid Christian lady who wouldn’t dare watch such shows about demons and monsters.  Of course not saying that is wrong or right but in my mind it just wasn’t what I was about.  There are several shows including: Grimm, Hemlock Grove, Vampire Diaries and more, I would not have ever watched without being introduced to the horror/demon hunting/science fiction but more genre that doesn’t really exist without the nurturing of this one show, Supernatural.

Now I am going to take the assumption that as a person who uses the internet that you don’t know me personally or have any knowledge of how my life turned around while writing fanfiction about the show, Supernatural.

Before I can get to that story, my Supernatural tv show journey all started because of my curiosity.  One night while watching Gilmore Girls they aired a commercial for an upcoming television show called, Superntural.  On first glance it wasn’t my thing but then I saw the names of the actors.  Something about the name Jensen Ackles rang a bell to me but I didn’t quite know why at first.  Luckly for me a cursory google search showed me that Jensen had been in Superman.  Well Superman was a show I had seen with my son a few times, and I had personally watched it up through Season 4.  Yes, Season 4 was when Jensen had appeared as Jason Teague, he single handedly kept me watching the show when I would have stopped, I know shocking right(note: being sarcastic).  Then of course Jared was familiar because of Gilmore Girls, so the connection made me curious to see what the show, Supernatural could be about.

The first time Supernatural aired was a Tuesday night after Gilmore Girls, great start looking for the Jared Padalecki crowd I imagine to be hungry for more of that lanky cutie.  I was at home alone, luckily because my husband would have none of that nonesense, LOL.  I sat ready to be frightened out of wits with my hands around my pillow in our small one bedroom apartment near Lake Michigan. It was all very interesting to me, especially the Woman in White theme.  In Texas where I also grew up, like the boys, I had heard the legend about a place near White Rock lake of a woman ghost wandering the back roads.  I liked the use of the urban legend.

Wow, its still so amazing how that moment was one to turn me in a direction that led to a total change.  Now when the series aired episode 13, Route 666, the biggest shift happened.  I decided to write a better story for Cassie and Dean.  I had no idea there were fans out there already writing away about “the boys”.  I found them at, joined the community and began writing all the time. Admittedly I started with Supernatural, writing a bit of Gilmore Girls, some unpublished One Tree Hill and later Experimented with TVD, but I digress. I have so many versions of how  Cassie Robinson and Dean Winchester could have been together its unreal.  You can find them online at (Matchmaker131, SuperfanGil, SuperFan3) I am also EdenWrites and Cheridan Allen on other sites.

This isn’t about my fiction though, one day while researching, yes fan fiction writers do that, I found information about being an empath.  I couldn’t stop crying.  The empathic qualities were ones I possess.  Whoa, now that was the biggest change that turned my life around.  No, not a stretch that the show was a catalyst for it, not at all.  I also met more friends by writing fan stories and attending conventions over the years because of the show than I would have met just being who had become.  Not that it was bad but I was not an open outgoing giving person at that time, I believe I was closed and stringent with myself and others.  Of course, that is my own non-judgmental opinion of myself.

The first time I met Jensen Ackles, who seemed like a genuine nice guy, I realized that it would be hard to go back to my old life and now after missing two conventions I do miss that fun.  It had become a large part of my life, not the pomp and circumstance but the community of people that gather for a LoveFest of a sorts. My yearly ladies weekend were something I had looked forward to actually as a way to be ME.  Admittedly, I found another way by going Nomad and finding a new life all together but I do thank the universe for that moment I saw that tv commercial, and we all hate them but sometimes they can lead to something magical and life changing.

Love to all Supernatural Fans, past and present.  “Love those boys.”


My first chicon picture from the days when actors just roam the halls freely in 2008, me with Chad Lindberg, please do not copy, alter, manipulate my picture, its happened before but I trust fandom has grown up since then, don’t make me regret daring to post it.  Thanks for reading.
