SCREAM QUEENS 1×08 Debriefing: “An Eternal Flame”

SCREAM QUEENS:  Cast Pictured L-R: Lucien Laviscount, Glen Powell, Nasim Pedrad, Nick Jonas, Billie Lourd, Ariana Grande, Abigail Breslin, Emma Roberts, Jamie Lee Curtis, Skyler Samuels, Diego Boneta, Keke Palmer, Oliver Hudson, Lea Michele and Niecy Nash in SCREAM QUEENS which debuts with a special, two-hour series premiere event on Tuesday, September 22 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. ©2015 Fox Broadcasting Co.

Episode 8 provided us with some pretty significant revelations about Grace’s mother, the death of a beloved character, and the return of a “missing” character.  As we get closer to the last leg of the season, it has become abundantly clear that this whole ordeal is much bigger than just an amateur killer with a literal ax to grind.  It would appear that this is an intricate revenge plot with quite a few different players. Since this post is a bit delayed, let’s just jump right into the episode!

Marla has been passionately and disturbingly obsessed with television since she was in diapers. She lives and breathes all things TV, and attempts to watch anything and everything. Unfortunately there are just not enough hours in the day. She definitely has her top favorite shows, the identities of which will become painfully obvious if anyone stumbles upon her social media pages.

I apologize for the extremely late post. I toyed with just jotting down a quick summary of the latest episodes. But I also wanted to do them justice since I really enjoyed them. So here is the full recap for episode 7. I think I loved this episode primarily because the last scene was perfection. I absolutely adore Jamie Lee Curtis in this role.  She is completely ridiculous, but not to the point of absurdity. And her work in the final scene was utterly brilliant. I will not ramble on too much here since this is an older episode. Let’s just get right to it.

BONES 11×07 Debriefing: “A Little Mystery is Good for the Soul”

In these times where anything is a Google search away, parents have to come up with increasingly creative ways to trick their kids into believing some mysteries to create a sense of wonder and feed their imagination.

Tonight’s episode was centered around magic and deception, whether it was our victim of the week, an argument about the Tooth Fairy, or magic aficionados Clark and Hodgins one-upping each other. Ultimately, the case came down to something as abstract and binding as a promise.

Read on for more thoughts on Bones 11×07, “The Promise in the Palace”…

… is a young graduate student that has been way too passionate about television ever since she was little. While she insists she doesn’t have a specific type of show, they all usually have strong but flawed lady characters, some derivation of the stubborn friends-in-love/friends-to-lovers trope, and they all make her yell at her tv a lot. She just wishes she had more hours in the day so she could actually write about this.

BONES 11×08 Stills: “High Treason in the Holiday Season”

Halloween has passed and gone, which means… the holiday season is upon us! And to celebrate, Bones will have its first ever Thanksgiving episode on November 19.

As per the press release, the team will investigate the murder of a high-powered political journalist who had recently published an article exposing corruption in the NSA. This obviously riles resident conspiracy theorist Hodgins up, as the team realizes their every move is being watched. On a happier note, Brennan is secretly planning a surprise for Booth, and the team will celebrate Thanksgiving together.

The squintern of the week is Rodolfo Fuentes and the kids (Christine, Michael Vincent and yes, Parker!) will make an appearance as well.

Is it fair to let your past taint your future? We usually improve upon our past mistakes so that we can become better people, but there are instances where those mistakes come back to haunt us.

It’s not surprising that a murdered senator would have a secret biological daughter he did not want anyone knowing about. The characters we care for? They have plenty of those skeletons hanging around in their closet, too, so it’s not a shock that Jessica has been involved with Greenpeace and the like in the past.

Tonight’s episode did not fully delve into this but it was resonant enough to stick with me. Read on for more thoughts on that and a recap after the break!

SLEEPY HOLLOW 3×05: Ichabod Crane vs. the 21st Century

Courtesy Fox

Apologies for the impromptu absence last week, Sleepyheads! (Perhaps I will be able to recap last week’s favorite moments this weekend, because Ichabod playing video games and eschewing standardized testing is every bit as delightful as it sounds.)

We’re back swinging this week, because it’s the great FOX crossover event! How do two FBI agents, a forensic anthropologist and a two-hundred-and-fifty-year-old soldier manage to share the screen? Through a couple of plot devices and a lot of Hollywood magic!

SLEEPY HOLLOW: L-R: Tom Mison, Nicole Beharie, guest star Emily Deschanel from BONES and David Boreanaz from BONES in the ÒDead Men Tell No Tales" episode of SLEEPY HOLLOW airing Thursday, Oct. 29 (9:00-10PM ET/PT) on FOX. ©2015 Fox Broadcasting Co. Cr: Tina Rowden/FOX.

It matters not, though, dear friends, because our Witnesses get to go on two (!) road trips to Washington, D.C. to solve a murder, and end up fighting Pandora again in the process. Cassidy will have your Bones recap up soon detailing Booth, Brennan, Crane and Mills’ Scooby adventures, but in the meantime, there’s nothing quite like a lab full of scientists to throw Ichabod out of his element — and we reap the rewards!

Here are some of the highlights from “Resurrection in the Remains” and “Dead Men Tell No Tales”

  1. Ichabod is genuinely stoked at visiting the Smithsonian Jeffersonian Institution, a center which embodies everything the Founding Fathers strove for. It’s beautiful. And hilarious, because he also has to explain to a bunch of strangers who aren’t aware of his, er, unique perspective.

  2. NO TOUCHING THE BOOK OF SHADOWS, Dr. Hodgins!
  3. Look at that — Revolutionary-era Ichabod helped solve a modern-day murder! Who needs computers and DNA when you have ancient parchments and porcelain teeth.
  4. “He called it Fondle in the Forest.” I want to know Ichabod’s old-timey cocktail names right now. Also, I want to go drinking with Ichabod right now.
  5. Ichabod goes bowling. I repeat: ICHABOD GOES BOWLING.
  6. “All up in your faces!” Ichabod tries so, so hard with the colloquialisms, like a precious cinnamon roll. (Hmm, more in common with his Washington counterpart?)
  7. However, he might need a slightly-less-conceptual costume next year for Halloween. (Maybe he can try Ben Franklin?) These 21st-century citizens just have no appreciation for his finery.
  8. “Miss Corinth wants me to peruse her Instant Gram. Apparently I’ve been ‘tagged’.” Everything about this sentence.
  9. #CraneOnTheBrain
  10. “Now might be the time for [Brennan] and Agent Booth to ‘throw down’.” Is it wrong to say I want to witness whoever is clearly conduction Slang Indoctrination with Ichabod?
  11. Brennan invites herself onto the case because she apparently “does not negotiate,” and Ichabod learns what contemporary Booth lives with on a daily basis.
  12. Modern skepticism is no match for Ichabod’s arched eyebrows: “[Brennan] dismissed Moloch as a man with a skin condition.” Some people have no respect for supernatural demon-fighters!
  13. Ichabod is flummoxed over dating in the present day, which is why he has Abbie as the best wing woman ever to help him navigate the treacherous waters.

  14. “Caller identification is a marvel.” Poor Ichabod, how can a gentleman caller present himself suitably when his intended calls him out on it first? Talk about a mojo killer!

Another week, another batch of murders. A slumber party turned bloody in the sixth episode of Scream Queens, as a Kappa and two Dickeys lost their lives at the hand of the Red Devil. This episode did not have much in the way of plot progression, but I imagine the rest of the season will be full steam ahead!

The second installment of the Scream Queen three-part Halloween “special” was actually my favorite episode since the premiere. The story seemed to flow a bit more seamlessly, though I’m still not entirely sure where the plot will be heading going into the second half of season 1.  I’m willing to stick with the show and find out, especially after a most-intriguing ending this week! Could we possibly be closer to solving this mystery? I’m still on board.

What a ride, Sleepy fans!

Bounty hunters, demons and Jack the Ripper, oh my!

What another crazy episode tonight, guys. Pandora’s still running amok (amok amok), destroying everything in her path, and she seems to have a particular bead on Abbie this week. What secrets does our new FBI agent have that could interest Sleepy Hollow’s latest resident? Whatever they are, they seem intimately related to her feelings about Ichabod, and are sure to send our minds running in the coming weeks.

Undeterred by the bureaucratic red tape preventing him from saving his beloved vault, Ichabod makes a huge decision: he will become an American citizen, if only to file this petition! It’s sweet, but may also be motivated by his newest admirer, Emily. Yet, his studying is quickly interrupted by a crime spree of Pandora’s instigation, and it’s off to the races for the Witnesses. Including a near brush with death at her hands, but luckily our duo always have each other’s backs in the nick of time.  No matter how Pandora tries to come between them, I have a sneaking suspicion she’ll be no match for Crane and Mills’ might.

Onwards with the more lighthearted moments tonight!

  1. Ichabod’s rant at governmental inefficiency was positively beautiful in its glory. Even more beautiful? That this clearly isn’t the first time, because Abbie knows the rant by heart and anticipates his salvos.
  2. What could possibly possess Ichabod to become an American citizen? Love of country? Pursuit of happiness? Dreams of freedom? No. Arcane bylaws which state that only citizens can file petitions for injunctions, that’s what.
  3. “Ichabod Crane, American. I like the sound of that.” So do we, Abbie.
  4. If the world-saving gets old, I think Ichabod’s got a future in the modern world as a college professor:
    Ichabod: No goal is worth much if it comes without a struggle.
    Emily: John Adams?
    Ichabod: Actually Ichabod Crane.
    [Kinda sounds like Frasier Crane to me, buddy.]
  5. Of course, a man as gallant as Ichabod couldn’t possibly ask for a young maiden’s help in his pursuit of American citizenship–
    Emily: My brother is a member of the senate subcommittee on  immigration–
    Ichabod: I would be honoured to accept your assistance!
    [I bet you would, buddy.]
  6. … And he knows it, too. “Oh please, as if Adams wouldn’t have done any different!
  7. Dude’s taking the right to bear arms thing seriously now:
    Abbie: I thought you were supposed to be hot stuff with a musket.
    Ichabod: I was always better with a flintlock pistol than a Brown Bess.
  8. This might be an odd 21st-century observation, Nelson Myers’ Ripper-esque rampage seemed like a metaphor for dangerous patriarchy, but that might just be me.
  9. Ichabod ends up on a (morphine?) drip in his living room, and if that’s not modern living, I don’t know what is. (Petition to see Ichabod get accidentally stoned at some point?)
  10. Nothing like a malaria joke about the civil war to date you, though.
  11. Witness Fist Bump!
  12. And above all, this must be Ichabod’s favorite part of the 21st century: “I am most grateful, lieutenant, that you and I have found each other once again.” (He must be high if he isn’t calling her leftenant though.)

Fresh off the excitement of the premiere of “My Struggle” at New York Comic Con this weekend, we’ve got some photos courtesy of Fox of season 10’s first episode.

Did Jeff Winger finally graduate Greendale to take on aliens? Maybe not quite, but Joel McHale is a special guest star in the hour, and we’re definitely curious about what role he plays in Mulder and Scully’s latest conspiracy.

Fox has been as tight-lipped as ever over the show that basically gave birth to online fandom as we know it, so we don’t know much about what’s in store in season 10, but what we do know is that we’re definitely along for the ride.
