Thor’s Day – Bigger, Better, and OMG Fall TV

It’s Thor’s Day and in some ways, it’s the day we’ve been waiting for, because everything is back on television. In a little over 35 days it will also be the day before Thor 2 hits theaters and I have a feeling my brain will pop. Let’s pause for a moment to look at a preview of Thor 2. But in addition to the beauty of Thor, we’re adding back into the television watchpot: The Vampire Diaries The Originals (just for tonight and then it moves to Tuesdays next week) Once Upon a Time in Wonderland Big Bang Theory The Crazy […]

It’s going to be a fantastic weekend with authors, readers, and books, books and did I mention books? I’m deep […]

We capped off some open storylines from the end of last season and launched new ones. Frankly, I think “Memorial” earned a high spot on the top ten episodes of the series of all time. How? Well, let’s talk about that. Not All Blood is Equal From beginning to end, Elena’s transition provided a counterpoint to the new danger in […]

Vampire Diaries Post Mortem: Growing Pains

It’s almost hard to believe it’s finally back, but season four debuted with a bang last night and we’re going to talk about some of the twists, the turns, and the WTF moments. Producers revealed the cold open a couple of weeks ago, offering us a glimpse of the all the changes in Mystic Falls and setting the tone for the episode with Elena’s, “I’m human or at least I was…” The next couple of minutes were also previewed. The white noise, the intensification of sound and Elena’s sudden wake with a gasp… Stefan and Damon sat in her room […]
