NASHVILLE 4X11 Debriefing: Wedding Bell Blues

Rejoice, Nashville fans! The day you’ve been wishing for since this show premiered four years ago finally arrives: Deacon and Rayna are tying the knot, come hell or high water! Which may be more than a figure of speech, if their history is anything to go by.

Apologies for the delay, folks. I’m obviously not as resourceful as our dear Peggy!

For the entirety of its second season, Agent Carter has danced around the impending disaster of the Zero Matter showdown with Whitney Frost, using her terrorizing as a backdrop for all of our characters’ personal struggles.

In “Hollywood Ending,” the show doubles down on some of those questions, while leaving others tantalizingly unresolved. If this is is the end of the series as we know it (perish the thought), there’s no doubt that fans will certainly be left debating the outcome for years to come.

But when it comes down to it, there is only one question that really matters: will Peggy Carter ever find happiness? Read on to find out.

Apologies for the delay in posting, folks. Better late than never?

I may have taken a break from writing about Agent Carter over the last few weeks, but that doesn’t mean our intrepid heroine has taken time off from taking down criminal masterminds.

Whitney Frost (Wynn Everett) has unleashed her true megalomaniacal self upon the world, and has taken Dottie Underwood (Bridget Regan) along for the ride, while poor Jason Wilkes (Reggie Austin) struggles just to stay whole, metaphorically and physically. But Peggy (Hayley Atwell) has more pressing matters: as if evil superpowers and love triangles weren’t enough to fill her plate, poor Ana (Lotte Verbeek) has gotten caught in the crossfire, and a gunshot wound to the abdomen at Frost’s hands leaves her life hanging in the balance. Jarvis (James D’Arcy) is inconsolable, and standing by her friend is of the utmost concern at this trying time. Can’t these guys ever catch a break?

She’s back!

It’s been nearly a year since Peggy Carter last graced out screens, and boy, does she know how to make a comeback! With a transcontinental move and some old friends by her side, and foes at her neck, she proves that there’s nothing a little sunshine can’t make better.

Agent Carter is here to tell the world that women are just as powerful — and capable of evil — as their male counterparts, and it’s utterly fascinating to watch. If Season 1 was about Peggy clawing her way through the patriarchy, Season 2 seems to be setting up a whole new way of running the world, and it’s about time we all listened.

NASHVILLE 4×10 Debriefing: Power play

Nashville is determined to shake up everyone’s relationships before it bows out for its winter hiatus. Some lovers seal it with a kiss, others part ways for good. Siblings drift further apart, while parents and children try to repair what’s been lost. Music might join them all together, but it sure doesn’t heal all wounds.

Oh, Nashville. You sure know how to yank a girl’s heartstrings.

Bring on the waterworks, folks, because just about everyone on this show is breaking your heart this week.

Sometimes this show is so on the nose, isn’t it?

As is often the case on Nashville, no one can have nice things for long on this show, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Deacon and Scarlett wait for news on Bev’s condition, Gunnar is still pouting about his ex, Juliette is nearing meltdown status, and Rayna deals with more label woes.

Everybody’s working for Labor Day!

Remember what we said about new content over the summer? Er, sorry about that. But we’re back now, and ready to have fun!

Happy Labor Day, Everyone!

As summer unofficially comes to an end on this holiday weekend, we have cause the celebrate — because that means the fall TV season is just around the corner!

To ease our way out of barbecues and reruns, and back into commutes and must-see TV, we here at TYLL want to take a look at some of our favorite fictional workplaces in recent years. (We are honoring workers today, after all.)

Grab your briefcases and to-go cups, because going back to work never seemed so fun. Be sure to let us know what your favorite offices are in the comments!

Thank You Liz Lemon Team
We’re a couple of girls who really love TV, and we’re okay with that.

When Nashville left us before the holidays, everyone’s troubles came home to roost, leaving us wondering how the show would untangle all the tricky webs it wove in the first half of the season. Last night’s midseason premiere picks up in the immediate aftermath, and no one is left unscathed from the drama — whether it’s Luke and Rayna’s botched wedding, Layla’s overdose, Deacon’s diagnosis, Gunnar’s paternity woes, or even Avery and Juliette’s marital-not-so-bliss.

AGENT CARTER Debriefing: Schnapps and sucker punches

Apologies for the delay everyone. Crazy real-life work schedule + terrible internet connections = awful backlog on my DVR and not nearly enough time to talk about any of it.

This week on Agent Carter, we delve a little deeper into the Stark disappearance mystery, while gaining some much-needed backstory on one Mr. Edwin Jarvis (James D’Arcy). Plus, Peggy (Hayley Atwell) foils her colleagues by pretending she’s dumb, while proceeding to kick ass in a variety of ways, as per usual. Then someone at SSR is killed (spoiler alert!), and the plot thickens.
