How to Get Away With Murder, Scandal, Parenthood, and More – Our Rants and Raves
It’s Shonda Night, also known as the best night of the week for a whole lot of reasons, and every single one of those reasons is a TV show. As usual, we’ve got feelings – lots and lots of feelings – and we’d like to share.
Spoiler alert! If you’re not caught up on tonight’s TV, what are you even doing here?
RAVE: How to Get Away with Murder: “I look nice, but that’s just my face.” We would say “Same, Gilmore Girls’ Paris Geller, same,” but we actually have the opposite problem. #bitchyrestingfaceforlyfe
RAVE: How to Get Away with Murder: Wes may be a puppy in the present but he’s a pitbull in the flash-forwards. He not only faked that coin toss in the premiere, but he also made a secretive call to someone and let them know he got the gang to go along with it. We can’t wait to see his turn to the dark side. (We hear they have cookies.)
RAVE: Scandal: It’s sometimes hard to separate Booty Call Jake from Scary B613 Murderer Jake, but boy are we willing to try. Fitz who?
RAVE: Scandal: Mellie Grant continues to be in the midst of the best and most heartbreaking breakdown ever, and her bathrobes are fabulous. (Still on Emmy patrol for Bellamy Young, and maybe even Darby Stanchfield after Abby’s pep talk to Mellie.)
NEWS: Where are Damon and Bonnie on TVD? Julie Plec has a clue-finding mission for you!
RANT: Bones: Was it just us or did that not feel sad enough? We kinda felt like we were crying more about Sweets’ death than the characters were.
RANT: Parenthood: They’re going to get us all prepared for Zeek’s life-threatening surgery and subsequent death and then suddenly kill of somebody else, aren’t they? BRB we’re heading to Sam’s Club for bulk Kleenex.
RAVE: The Vampire Diaries: Who’s up for some tasty confusion pancakes and a long discussion about what the hell is going on?
RAVE: The Vampire Diaries: People erasing memories of their great loves will never ever cease to make us whimper like a damn baby. Thanks, Elena. Thanks a lot.
RANT/RAVE: Gracepoint: We don’t know why we needed a shot-for-shot remake of an already amazing show (Broadchurch), but we guess we don’t really have a reason to complain about good writing and David Tennant.
NEWS: What’s next for Bones after saying goodbye to Sweets?
RAVE: Girl Meets World: Silly Halloween episodes get an automatic rave, especially when they’re adorable…and steam punk.
RAVE: A to Z: Cutest new show or cutest show in the history of ever? We might be willing to follow Cristin Milioti to the ends of the earth.
RANT: Bad Judge: What happened to you, Addison Montgomery? And also to our legal system? And television? And the world?
RANT: Reign: Nobody major died in the plague? Lame! However, Pascal, Kenna and Bash’s sort of adopted son, died, as well as Yvette, Lord Castleroy’s daughter, who was accidentally poisoned while waiting for Leith, her father’s fiancee’s ex. French Court is basically high school. Except with plagues. And death.
RAVE: Project Runway: Bye bye, Korina. We liked your clothes (OMG, those jackets), but not your attitude.
So what did you watch tonight? Feel free to rant and rave with us in the comments!
