Selfie 1x01 ‘Pilot’ Review: This show deserves a chance!

image

Sometimes there are shows that we cry over, read fanfiction related to it, and check up on the spoilers every week. This isn’t one of those shows. This ABC sitcom starring Doctor Who and Guardian of the Galaxy’s Karen Gillan is the type of show that you watch when you’re sad and need cheering up. It’s that half hour of television that you silently look forward to viewing whilst you’re at work. It’s quirky, it’s cute and it’s not serious at all, which is what makes it a good show!

Gotham 1x02 ‘Selina Kyle’ Review: Who are you rooting for?

image

In this episode we are given slight indications to many of the character’s back-stories as well as their futures on the show. These storylines are slowly being incorporated into the show and it is being done so wonderfully.

Family Guy 13x01 ‘The Simpsons Guy’ Review: When Homer met Peter

image

Spoilers are included in this review.

When your show is way past its prime and you have a whole bunch of iconic characters to throw references with left, right and centre, what do you do? You find another show that has the exact same issue and you do a crossover together. It was about time The Simpsons and Family Guy did a crossover episode and, as expected, manage to crack quite a few good jokes throughout. Whether you liked, loved or hated it, you have to admit that their Modern Family, American Dad and The Flintstones inclusions are hilarious.

The Simpsons 26x01 ‘Clown In The Dumps’ Review: A lazily unoriginal premiere.

image

Spoilers are included in this review.

The Simpsons are back and the family are as un-tight as ever! Although the episode does not really focus on the nuclear family, nor does it really scream “we’re back!!!”, it is a decent episode… But maybe this particular one should have waited a little longer to premiere and a better, more well written one should have taken its place?

Doctor Who 8x06 ‘The Caretaker’ Review: The Doctor and his mixed signals!

Spoilers are included in this review.

This week is full of a lot of hints and a bit of dramatic irony. With the episode focusing on the relationship between Danny (Samuel Anderson) and Clara (Jenna Louise Coleman), we get a bit of a different perspective, but that’s not to say that it’s a bad episode – in fact, it’s the opposite.

Red Band Society 1x02 ‘Sole Searching’ Review: The true meaning of love

Spoilers are included in this review.

A big theme from this week’s episode is friendship, and learning how to maintain a true friendship. Our Red Band Society members are slowly turning into our favourite non-binary family on television as we are already seeing them grow closer together, as well as grow as people. However, although it is yet to happen to a large extent, the predictability factor may be pretty apparent in weeks to come…

The Mysteries of Laura 1x02 ‘The Mystery of the Dead Date’ Review: Is it too soon to be axed?

image

Spoilers are included in this review.

This is the kind of show to think that just because you have one tense scene that maybe the entire episode can be saved… Well it is a good scene (you all know what I’m talking about) but it isn’t enough to save this future train wreck from hitting the wall. But at least the comedy is (kind of) getting better!

The Mindy Project 3x02 ‘Annette Castellano Is My Nemesis’ Review: Taking a ‘Dandy’ step forward

Spoilers are included in this review.

Mindy (Mindy Kaling) is the kind of character that upon first meeting you cannot stand, but, once you get to know her, you fall in love. However, from a television perspective you fall in love with her from the moment that you meet her, hence why we have always been rooting for her from the beginning. However, those that actually meet her as a character themselves may not be so keen on her. This is why I really adore the way that the show portrays Mindy’s relationships. From the dozens of guys that take a few moments to be fans of her to her relationship with Danny (Chris Messina) blossoming from a love/hate to purely love… with a bit of hate.

New Girl 4x02 ‘Dice’ Review: Are Nick & Jess back together yet?

image

Spoilers are included in this review.

Nothing screams friendship more than getting high in front of police officers and going on ten dates in one day! This week’s episode of New Girl allows us to truly understand the beauty of the bonds that the characters have together, but not all at once. We see them in an unconventional way, which in my books, is wonderful, but it’s a shame that the humour isn’t up to scratch this week.

Scorpion 1x01 ‘Pilot’ Review: Katharine McPhee featuring others

Spoilers are included in this review.

CBS’ new drama Scorpion may have a good future ahead of it, if ratings are anything to go by, but when we focus on the show itself, it’s kind of a drag. With the exception of the well chosen cast, nothing else really sticks out that much for me in the Pilot episode. But at least Katharine McPhee (from SMASH and American Idol!) is back on our screens!
