Luckily, the show itself is called GRIMM and thankfully it’s anything but. GRIMM is from ANGEL co-creator …Read On »

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Julie Plec & Caroline Dries, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: Rob Hardy    Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: October 20, 2010 I am consistently pleased with the way that THE VAMPIRE DIARIES is re-writing its own rules and making all kinds of changes in practically every episode. It seems like every single week the cliff-hanger this season is something completely unexpected and I love that about this show! “Smells like Teen Spirit” is no exception to the way the show is bending and twisting this season to …Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 7 – “Shut Up, Dr. Phil”

James Marsters and Charisma Carpenter in SUPERNATURAL - Season 7 - "Shut Up, Dr. Phil" | ©2011 The CW/Jack Rowand

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, James Marsters, Charisma Carpenter, Sean Owen Roberts Writers: Brad Buckner & Eugenie Ross-Leming, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Phil Sgriccia Network: The CW, Fridays @ 9 PM Original Telecast: October 21, 2011 When supernatural shows that are usually dark with hints of humor decide to be lighthearted without committing to going gonzo, the results are usually lightweight. That’s in one way the case with SUPERNATURAL’s episode “Shut Up, Dr. Phil,” but on the other hand, anything that brings together BUFFY and ANGEL alumni James Marsters (Spike) and Charisma Carpenter (Cordelia) automatically has worthwhile qualities. …Read On »

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Michael Narducci, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: John Behring    Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: October13, 2010 “The Reckoning” definitely delivers on a LOT of levels as the new season of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES continues. It’s Senior Prank Night and despite the fact that their entire world has been flipped on its ear in the last year or so, Caroline (Candice Accola) is determined that Elena (Nina Dobrev), Bonnie (Katerina Graham), and Tyler (Michael Trevino) are going to have a normal night of fun. Of course, no …Read On »

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Brian Young, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: Wendy Stanzler    Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: October 6, 2010 Why is THE VAMPIRE DIARIES like crack? I have no idea. I can’t get enough of this show. When I started watching it, I had finally decided to give it a shot, and I wasn’t all that hot to trot for it, but then after maybe two episodes I was hooked and was completely sucked in to all of the drama and multiple layered plots of the characters …Read On »

TV Review: THE VAMPIRE DIARIES – Season 3 – “The End of the Affair”

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Caroline Dries, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: Chris Grismer   Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: September 29, 2010 Once again, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES delivers with another fine episode. “The End of the Affair” is packed with lavish 1920’s flashbacks, and all kinds of cerebral goodies to chew on in the present. Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) hit Chicago in an effort to find out why Klaus can’t properly create his hybrid army. Of course Stefan knows the real reason, simply that Elena (Nina Dobrev) …Read On »

TV Review: THE VAMPIRE DIARIES – Season 3 – “The Hybrid”

Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder in THE VAMPIRE DIARIES - Season 3 - "The Hybrid" | ©2011 The CW/Quantrell D. Colbert

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Joshua Butler, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: Al Septien Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: September 22, 2010 THE VAMPIRE DIARIES never fails to please in terms of cliffhanger endings and surprises rolling in that are rarely suspected or even hinted at. Last week’s cliffhanger saw Caroline (Candice Accola) gunned down by Carol Lockwood (Susan Walters) with a Vervain tranquilizer, that was a brilliant ending but I think the new episode “The Hybrid” has an even better one (SPOILER ALERT) bringing back Caroline’s father played by Jack …Read On »

Smith Director: John Behring Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: September 15, 2010 YAY! The wait is finally over and one of my favorite guilty pleasures is back! THE VAMPIRE DIARIES left us in a bit of a lurch last season with Stefan (Paul Wesley) taking off to join Klaus (Joseph Morgan) as he plots for the next phase in his supernatural vendetta. Poor Elena (Nina Dobrev) was left with only Damon (Ian Somerhalder) to make the pain go …Read On »
