The Vampire Diaries - Season 5 Mid-season Review

While I haven't been reviewing The Vampire Diaries this season – due to a really hectic and time consuming new position at work – I have been watching the show each and every week. And, overall, it's been an interesting, yet somewhat difficult to »»

The Vampire Diaries - Episode 4-23 Review - Graduation

First and foremost, Happy Memorial Day to everyone!  The weekend hasn't been great weather (or excitement) wise, but I hope everybody has enjoyed their time away from work.  And more importantly, let's be sure to remember what this day is about – »»

The Vampire Diaries - Episode 4-22 Review - The Walking Dead

Just a couple of reviews ago I criticized the fact that the villain situation this season has been a bit all over the place.  Who is supposed to be the big bad?  Is it the Originals?  The Founders Council?  The vampire hunters?  Silas?  Katheri »»

The Vampire Diaries - Episode 4-21 Review - She's Come Undone

Hey!  I actually got this review posted in a reasonable amount of time!  As we draw closer to the finale, I'll try to maintain this pace.   While I have always stated that I prefer Elena and Stefan – and I do enjoy the moments that see »»

The Vampire Diaries - Episodes 4-19 & 4-20 Review - Pictures of You & The Originals

Since I was in Texas the night The Vampire Diaries returned from hiatus and I wasn't able to watch the episode until the following Wednesday, I decided I would just do another dual review for the prom episode, as well as the set up for the Originals »»

The Vampire Diaries - Episodes 4-17 & 4-18 Reviews - Because the Night & American Gothic

The best part of these episodes – and I daresay, the best part of the entire SERIES – had to have been when the random barfly brushed his hand through Rebekah's hair, only for Rebekah to swiftly grab his face and violently throw him to the ground »»

The Vampire Diaries - Episode 4-16 Review - Bring It On

So I was browsing YouTube to rewatch the Caroline/Elena fight (because, well, c'mon….) and I decided to read some of the comments people had left.  Now, I swore off the comments section of IMDB a couple of years ago, at least in the midst of any g »»

The Vampire Diaries - Episode 4-15 Review - Stand By Me

So The Vampire Diaries followed up last week's fantastic episode with another stellar one.  There is one thing I always commend this show for, and that's that it has the characters ask and answer the questions we're all thinking.  In my last review »»

The Vampire Diaries Episode 4-14 Review - Down the Rabbit Hole

In my previous review, I asked if anybody knew if Rebekah would be cast in the proposed Originals pilot.  Latest reports indicate that, yes, she will!  This is good news as far as I'm concerned, as she's the character that viewers could certainly s »»

The Vampire Diaries Episodes 4-12 & 4-13 Review - A View To Kill & Into The Wild

Apologies, friends, for the lateness of these reviews.  This is my busy time at work, which means I don't always get to watch the episodes live.  And this past week we were hit with the blizzard, which slowed things down even further.  But here ar »»

The Vampire Diaries - Episode 4-11 Review - Catch Me If You Can

I hope everybody has managed to stay healthy and warm over the past week or so.  We've experienced some light snow, but there has been A LOT of illness being spread.  At work, we've had around 5 or so people out at a time throughout the past two we »»

The Vampire Diaries - Episode 4-10 Review - After School Special

Annnnnd we're back!  I hope everybody had a safe and happy holiday season and new year.  Since we've last discussed The Vampire Diaries, we've learned that a spinoff is being developed to focus on Klaus and the original vampires.  I think this cou »»

The Vampire Diaries - Episode 4-9 Review - O Come, All Ye Faithful

It's almost as if the writers of this show are reading my reviews, because it seems like they've touched upon all of my recent not-quite-complaints-more-like-observations this past episode, most notably the differing motivations and philosophies amon »»

The Vampire Diaries - Episode 4-8 Review - We'll Always Have Bourbon Street

It feels like every week I make this observation that the show comes THIS close to creating a truly tense relationship between Elena and somebody close with her – usually due to the fact that she's (typically indirectly) responsible for the demise »»

The Vampire Diaries - Episode 4-7 Review - My Brother's Keeper

  Just last review I was remarking how selective the writers have been about vampires' super hearing (most notably, Caroline, Haley, and Tyler openly acknowledging their ploy seconds after Klaus left the house), and this week's episode featur »»

The Vampire Diaries - Episode 4-6 Review - We All Go A Little Mad Sometimes

Alright, no more promises with me saying “this week I should be posting this at a normal time."  Clearly, life and/or nature doesn't want it to happen.  Thus, I thank all of my readers for their awesome patience.  And to those of you who are Ame »»

The Vampire Diaries - Episodes 4-4 & 4-5 Reviews - The Five & The Killer

I know I promised in my last review that I'd have these reviews up faster now that the CW is once again being carried by my cable provider, but the infamous Hurricane Sandy got in the way of that.  I was without television and Internet from early Tu »»

The Vampire Diaries - Episode 4-3 Review - The Rager

“How'd you get stuck with Hunter duty?" “Stefan has a Physics test."   Another week with the “Mystic Falls" introduction.  Except with each week, it looks like they're adding new scenes/information as the season's storyline progres »»

The Vampire Diaries - Episode 4-2 Review - Memorial

So I'm not quite sure what to make of the new introduction at the beginning of each episode of The Vampire Diaries.  When it was used last week, I figured it was just a variation of the typical “Previously On…" montage, but when it appeared agai »»

The Vampire Diaries - Episode 4-1 Review - Growing Pains

Alright, folks, I'm back with another season of The Vampire Diaries!  However, my reviews for the time being are going to be a little later than usual.  My current cable provider no longer carries the CW, so until they resolve their issues (hug it »»

Blu-ray Review: Blue Like Jazz

A tale about how Christianity can fit into the real world. »»

The Vampire Diaries Episode 3-22 Review - The Departed

I usually include a short introduction on my reviews, mostly so that I can do a page break on my blog to protect people from spoilers, and I want to also make sure that spoilers don't pop up on my Twitter feed (since parts of the first sentence are u »»

The Vampire Diaries - Episode 3-21 Review - Before Sunset

My apologies, but I actually missed the first 10 or so minutes of this past week's episode (thank you, local chicken wing establishment!)  But I think I got the gist of the episode, with Bonnie wanting to do a spell to stop Alaric's heart, similar t »»

The Vampire Diaries - Episode 3-20 Review - Do Not Go Gentle

Alright so this question needs to be asked:  What in the blue hell is the party budget over at the Mystic Falls High School?  On top of having a new event every week, they're even ordering crystal chandeliers. Crystal chandeliers that are apparentl »»

The Vampire Diaries - Episode 3-19 Review - Heart of Darkness

This was another fun episode that continued to mix up some of the interactions we're used to seeing.  For example, Alaric typically shares almost all of his scenes with either Elena or Damon.  This episode, he was kept completely separate from them »»

The Vampire Diaries - Episode 3-18 Review - The Murder of One

 “Stop!  Before you hurt yourself!"   I loved Klaus' delivery of that line.  It was just the right amount of awareness without achieving over-the-top sarcasm.  Just perfect.   So while conquering Klaus has been an ongoing »»

The Vampire Diaries - Episode 3-17 Review - Break On Through

So this week's episode confirmed what we were told last week, that Alaric may be responsible for the murders of the Founders Council members.  I apologize if this was already answered, but why exactly are these people who go crazy targeting the Foun »»

The Vampire Diaries - Episode 3-16 Review - 1912

So I think I owe the CW website an apology.  I quite frequently criticize them for their lackluster turnaround time for getting their shows online (coupled with the fact that you can only view them on the CW website, and not other sites like Hulu). »»

The Vampire Diaries - Episode 3-15 Review - All My Children

“This house has too many men rolling around in it." “Just like you, Bekkah!"   C'mon, that was pretty funny.   Also great was Damon's disgusted, “She told YOU?" in response to Alaric knowing about his romp in the hay wi »»

The Vampire Diaries - Episode 3-14 Review - Dangerous Liaisons

I've spent much of this season discussing the general role reversal between Stefan and Damon, but this episode was the first time I really noticed that their general behavior and philosophies have switched as well.  Yes, both of them have evolved an »»
