Recap: The Newsroom Season 2, Episode 9 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

In the midst of scheduling disputes with Aaron Sorkin over whether or not he can even write the third season of The Newsroom, the second season over at ACN ended neatly wrapped up in a bow with everyone getting pretty much the happy ending they wanted. I can't say it was satisfying, but it was a fun conclusion.

There was a lot less melodrama this week and much more characterization within ACN itself, and the seemingly season-long plot line of 'Operation Genoa,' has taken a big upswing. Let's recap, shall we?

Recap: Game of Thrones Season 3, Episode 10 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

The finale of Game of Thrones was more of a halfway point than a true conclusion. We've got a lot of questions, a lot of minor things to obsesses over, but no big hook to bring us back next year.

Recap: Game of Thrones Season 3, Episode 9 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

It finally happened. Like every season before it, Game of Thrones threw such a huge wrench into everything we thought could happen in the penultimate episode. A game changing, jaw-dropping, just utterly insane plot twist that even if you've read the books and knew it was coming, you couldn't really mentally prepare for what you were about to see.

We are two episodes form the finale, and 'Second Sons' wasn't as action packed as previous weeks, but some major exposition, some leeches, and a wedding happened. I guess that's enough to merit a good recap.

As Season 4 of The Vampire Diaries comes to a close, the episode wanted us to reflect, think on previous memories, and hope for the best as a seemingly new chapter beings in the Salvatore Saga. But what really happened were a couple of cheap pops, a bunch of 'resolutions' if you can call them that, and a REALLY weak cliffhanger for the fifth season.

The episode's title, 'The Climb' was reference to the one piece of plot line that lasted for the entire 60 minutes, but really wasn't the most important. Suffice to say, it was a meaty episode that kept me engaged the entire time and didn't drag, which has been rare in Game of Thrones this season.

"She's Come Undone" starts off in a dream sequence and kind of remains that way for the entire episode. After last week's Klaus diversion, we're kind of stuck in the rut of catching up on some melodrama in order for the actual plot line to move forward with the final two episodes of the season.

The highly anticipated backdoor pilot for Klaus' spin-off, The Originals, has arrived. While it's not an outright brand new show, the idea of adjusting some major characters away from Mystic Falls to take over New Orleans has potential for at least one entertaining half-season of television.

A bunch of plots moving forward, some gore, some sex, some action sequences and an awesome ending that will definitely have us tuning in next week. While I don't feel totally like the previous two weeks were a waste of time, I just feel like if they were on the same pace as this episode, then the start of the third season would have been MAY more engaging.
