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.

This is the kind of episode from The Newsroom that I always wanted.

With this episode, we finally have the straw that breaks the camel's back in terms of the news networks credibility and exactly why all those deposition flash forwards have been happening.

Your Pretty Little Liars Cheat Sheet: Season 4, Episode 7

This week on Pretty Little Liars was all about the other characters! It was interesting to see the show mix it up a bit but I lacked my usual "Omigod, do these girls have brains?" moments as I watched this week

Your Pretty Little Liars Cheat Sheet: Season 4, Episode 6

When I was in high school, I liked to fake sick in order to stay home for the day. Hanna took it to the next level by getting arrested at a sorority house and subsequently, got put on house arrest by her parents.

Recap: The Newsroom Season 2, Episode 1 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

After a reasonably entertaining, yet melodramatic, first season, Aaron Sorkin's The Newsroom is back for a second year; ready to teach us all about the lifestyles of the media elite.

Nothing brings me more joy every week then sitting down and watching the PLL girls act like a mess all over my TV screen.

Poetry, Naked Art, and A Man Fight: Just Another Episode of the Bachelorette

For the first time this season, we actually have an interesting episode! I had all but given up on Des and her predictable, boring dates -- but after the fun drama, lots of tears, and Zak W. looking dreamy in tighty whiteys -- I am recommitted.

Never a dull moment with this one! Like that ex you don't want run into, Pretty Little Liars brought back Melissa, Spencer's possible killer sister.

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.

Jun 3, 2013

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.

May 20, 2013

Recap: Game of Thrones Season 3, Episode 8 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

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.

Recap: The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 23 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

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.

Recap: Game of Thrones Season 3, Episode 7 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

Even if you don't watch GoT, you should read this recap because Theo's photo titles are the greatest thing ever and have me LOLing 4 real.

Recap: The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 22 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

We got a bunch of old faces returning, some dope twists, and true confusion on how the hell they're going to end this season. All in all, I guess it was a pretty good episode.

May 6, 2013

Recap: Game of Thrones Season 3, Episode 6 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

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.

May 3, 2013

Recap: The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 21 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

"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.

Apr 29, 2013

Recap: Game of Thrones Season 3, Episode 5 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

After last week's crazy craze fest of pure excitement, Game of Thrones definitely needed to dial it back a bit, check in with some characters wet might not have seen in awhile and develop some plot lines for the endgame of Season 3.

Apr 26, 2013

Recap: The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 20 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

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.

Apr 22, 2013

Recap: Game of Thrones Season 3, Episode 4 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

This episode of GOT has had some big events leading to what can only be an amazing midway point next week. Practically every character (with the exceptions of Robb Stark) had something happen that will definitely effect them immediately, not just whenever.

Recap: The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 19 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

While the tuxedos were out and the prom dresses were way too nice for a bunch of high school seniors (immortal or not), there's some serious endgame magic going on, and I'm ready for the end of this season.

Apr 15, 2013

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

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.

Apr 8, 2013

Recap: Game of Thrones Season 3, Episode 2 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

Game of Thrones kept is slow burn of introductions going this week, but at least the characters were way more interesting.

Apr 1, 2013

Recap: Game of Thrones Season 3, Episode 1 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

I'm a very big fan of this series, books included, and the third novel that this season is based on (A Storm Of Swords) is easily the best book in the series (and my personal favorite), I'm unreasonably excited for this season.

Recap: The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 18 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

While "American Gothic" made sure that the plot forced itself back to Mystic Falls, it brought some old characters back around just in time for The Originals spinoff launch and the grand finale where someone is obviously going to wind up taking the cure.

Recap: The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 17 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

Road trips are usually never good in television shows. They’re one-off, they never push forward the plot, and are usually...

Mar 15, 2013

Recap: The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 16 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

After a brief hiatus, the insanity that encompasses Mystic Falls has returned. While there was a brief cheer leading interlude within the episode, the title 'Bring It On' feels more towards the setup for the endgame of this season rather than a reference to arguably one of the greatest cheer leading movies ever.

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

One more week of this and I think I'm going to write off Girls. It seems to me that HBO made a major mistake in renewing the show so early into it's second season run because all it seems to have done is fallen off in quality.
