if one cw show could get an emmy it would be this

Mc Donalds anon. At this point I could make it an account name. Ok so you're saying That Misha is friends with the boss? Or that Singer likes Misha despite Misha running his mouth with no filter in the past? Or that Singer sees that Misha brings in money and/or interest in the show (as a secondary character yes, but quite a beloved one)? I put my money on answer three? Am I getting the code right, damnit i feel slow. As an aside, I don't always agree with u but your blog is so damn REFRESHING

Don’t feel bad feeling slow because I’m not helping. I’m avoiding saying certain stuff but *pinch nose* you’re going to make me say it.  

The official statement on why they kept Misha on is to give Jensen and Jared time off from their heavy filming schedule.  Notice, though, it’s to give both Jensen and Jared off at the same time.  If Jared wants time off then they could schedule Jensen and Misha scenes, or if Jensen wants time off then they could film Jared and Misha scenes.  But no, Jensen and Jared need to have their time off together at the same time.   Mmmmokay say I still believe the official statement, then why not further develop Cas’s character with new characters that fans have responded very well to, like Benny, Charlie, and Gadreel?  Why do they keep introducing and killing off interesting new characters while Cas is just kind of….there?   Can you honestly tell me that you’ve noticed a downtick of Sam and Dean scenes?  Sure there were episodes that are side-character centric, but all shows do this; they let supporting characters have their spotlight episode because creators/writers gets paid more when their character are used. Claire Novak was Carver’s creation from season 4 so he used her for 3 episodes in season 10 and gets paid more.

Needless to say I don’t buy their official statement.

I’m taking futher speculation under the cut because this could get long.

Things We Shouldn’t Do (Part 1 of ?)

Word Count: 11.1K
Summary:
“The history between the two of you is well known,” Marcus went on, talking over Clarke’s continued splutters.  “And it hasn’t escaped the notice of certain news organizations–”
“What, you mean fucking TMZ?” Clarke interjected.
Marcus sighed.  “It would be in the best interest of the show and I think both your careers if you were to be seen as a couple.”
Silence.
“A dating couple,” Marcus added as if that hadn’t been clear.
Bellamy and Clarke exploded simultaneously.“If we what?” Clarke demanded at the same time that Bellamy just started laughing.  He slipped sideways, dangerously close to falling out of his chair.

—-
Clarke is at the bottom of a downward spiral and Bellamy is riding an all-time career high when they’re cast as the leads of Marcus Kane’s newest drama.  The entertainment world expects a blowup of immense proportions between the two feuding actors but get a hard to explain romance instead.  Or: a fake dating celebrities AU.

Clarke flipped the script shut and pushed it away across the table.  “No,” she said.  “No fucking way.”

Anya sighed and pushed the script back.  “Clarke.”

“I’m not doing it.”

“This project could be really good for you.”

Clarke raised an eyebrow and looked between the stack of papers and her agent.  “Uh huh.”

Anya swallowed and looked down.  Gen Super, it trumpeted.  Pilot.  Written by Marcus Kane.  “I know it’s not…ideal.”

“It’s not even fucking close to ideal, it’s motherfucking absurd.”

Ship. Of. The. Year. So Proud To Be In This Fandom...

WOW. We are Ship of the Year!!! 

Not only are we Ship of the Year…we are Ship of the Year after Season 3. Season 3 was hell on Olicity for a good portion of the season. Complete and utter misery. 

Truth be told, if we tallied the happy moments between Oliver and Felicity in Season 3, it would add up to mere minutes of screen time.

The Vampire Diaries used to be a really great show. It was never an Emmy worthy one, but for a teen drama on CW.. it was really, REALLY, good.

Unfortunately, time of heroes and dead characters who actually stay dead is long gone, and we’re faced with storylines thought half through and characters who wear a different personality every single episode.

Every show has its premise. Male lead. Female lead. Villains. Supporting characters. I don’t know about you guys, but I fall in love what I’m presented with, and I have a feeling TVD writers changed their minds halfway through the show. No. You can’t do that. You started telling a story. Finish it. You have another idea? That’s really great. Create a new show, create new characters to build your show around. Don’t force your already existing ones into storylines they don’t fit in.

That’s how TVD feels for almost two years now, like writers are trying to squeeze their characters into jeans two sizes too small.

Do you remember how TVD begins? It begins with Stefan saying I’m a vampire and this is my story. Now, Stefan is a footnote in his own story. He became a plot device for storylines concerning other characters. This is your main male character, people. Your main hero. And they give him crumbs. Crazy doppelgangers, PTSD and such, which lasts for several episodes and then, he’s pushed into background. Giving his ex girlfriend advice on how to bang his brother. Then, they kill him off in the next to the last episode of the season in such a trivial way few seconds before the episode ends. And everyone are like oh, he’ll be back. Yeah, he obviously will, deep down we all knew that, but it was their job to make me believe he’s not going to be back. Or at least to make it tear worthy. Once upon a time TVD was able to make me cry with a death of a character I’ve met that episode, and now the death of my favorite character doesn’t even bother me. The lack of screen time Stefan got in the season finale, or his importance, is actually so disappointing. The reactions to his death were underwhelming. You don’t have time to actually give us bombastic reactions at your main character dying? DON’T KILL HIM AN EPISODE BEFORE THE FINALE. I also don’t care if this or that character knew/believed he will come back. I expect tears. Because there’s a dead body of the person they love in front of their eyes.

Season finale basically followed its usual steps. Oh no, we don’t have a plan. Wait, we have a plan, but.. we need a witch. Let’s kidnap a witch. Suspense is killing us because the witch is not able to help us, so let’s use violence to make her. There, the witch has agreed to help us. We’re going through with the plan. Something happens. Drama. Drama. Tears. More irrelevant tears. Some bullshit writing there’s no proof of in previous episodes. Something shocking, more or less, happens. Oh the suspense.. do TVD writers have guts to actually kill off one of the main characters? Of course not, because then evil fans will send them angry tweets and hurt their feelings. Are they dead? Calm down guys, everyone already signed a contract for the next season, we’re all good.

You know what I hate? When they bring characters back to promote a certain pairing. Sometimes I have a feeling the other side exists solemnly so random dead characters can come back and scream ALL OF US IN PURGATORY ARE ROOTING FOR THE TWO OF YOU TO STICK YOUR TONGUES DOWN EACH OTHERS THROAT. Rose and Alaric were main Delena fans, and now Lexi is pushing for Steroline. I know all of you are bored because there’s probably nothing else to do at the other side, but don’t do it, because it feels like you’re pushing those ships down our throat. And we don’t like that.

Where was I? Yeah, season finale.. Bonnie tries to save all of them, knowing there’s no possible way for her to save herself. They decide to set the whole town on fire in order to kill the travelers. And Damon offers to do the bang. Some touchy feely Delena scenes. When Damon asked Elena to respect his choice I was actually rolling around the bed laughing like a maniac because, come on.. there’s so much irony in here that you can’t not laugh. Lexi refuses to cross over so Bonnie doesn’t die before Damon manages to cross over. Yeah, was I supposed to be touched by this? Because a minor relevant character decided some other character is more worthy to kill Bonnie than they are? I’m not a big Beremy fan, or a fan at all, but Jeremy screaming Bonnie and running in her direction was actually touching. 

We come to a main punch line.. Elena getting in the car with Damon to blow the whole town up. Remember how in the earlier seasons everyone complained Elena is boring and too good and a saint? Yeah, well, I want that girl back. With a shining halo and fuzzy sweaters and granny undies and teddy bears. Because that girl was strong in a way many people don’t even recognize as strength. She was strong at her core. And she would be so ashamed if she could see herself today. What Elena did today was suicide. You want to compare it to the season 3 when she told Stefan to save Matt instead of her? Sorry, you can’t. Because then, she was making a sacrifice. Today, she was on a suicide mission. An unnecessary one. She got in that car and pulled a Bella Swan. She got in that car knowing that, if something goes wrong, she will be leaving Jeremy alone. Remember Jeremy? Minor. No family but her. Yeah, that Jeremy. Where’s the girl from season 2 whose bones shook at the thought of dying? She was ready to die with Damon because being dead with him is better than being alive, but alone. You know when that was romantic? In 14th century Italy when some guy Shakespeare made you up. 

This show is one vampire baby away from becoming Twilight.

This episode made me realize something, though. That Elena will never, ever, love Stefan the way she loves Damon. At least not this version of Elena, the person she grew out to be. Elena who makes suicide missions instead of sacrifices. Elena is bright pink sweaters is long gone, I just haven’t accepted that until now. And she won’t ever love Stefan the way she loves Damon. But you know what? I don’t want her to. Not anymore.

Also, you know who the real hero here is? Bonnie. Not Damon, not Stefan, not Caroline or any other character. It’s Bonnie. Bonnie who died and no one noticed. Bonnie who had people dying through her and yet, no one noticed. Bonnie, who lost her dad. Bonnie, who lost everyone but never dared to cry or complain, in case someone needs her. Bonnie, who always wore a smile on her face. Bonnie, who wanted just one thing.. to make her last days on this planet count. Bonnie, who had zero obligation towards these people, who pushed her around, used her for their purpose, not caring for her well being. Bonnie, who died to save them all.

While Elena was crying for Damon.. don’t get me wrong, I get it. She loves him. I would have cried too. But do you know for who I would cry more? Person who was in my life basically since the day I was born. And Elena.. she acted so ungrateful. Like it’s somehow Bonnie’s fault that Damon is stuck on the other side.

And then, it ends. Actually, I liked the ending scene. Bonnie and Damon, standing next to each other. Two character who don’t have two nice words to say about each other. Who can’t stand to be in the same room as each other. Holding hands. Facing the unknown. It’s a depth of possibilities. But, knowing the writers, none they will explore.

So, that’s your shocking, deadly finale. Bunch of irrelevant characters came back, travelers went as they came, and two of them died out of which we know one will come back for sure.

Color me surprised.

“Do you wantto–”

“No.”

“Come on, I think you’ll really–”

“No.”

“Please, Katniss, just give it a–”

“I said no, Peeta.”

He sighed, rising to his feet and making his way to the staircase.

“I’ll go watch it upstairs, I guess,” he said, drawing out the last word melodramatically. “Enjoy your cat show,” he quipped, before feathering a kiss to her hair and bounding up the stairs.

“It’s educational,” she scowled, she didn’t appreciate his digs at her love for National Geographic. But he had already made it up the stairs before he could hear her retort. Every Wednesday night, like clockwork, Katniss’ boyfriend would nag her to watch his show with him. Peeta wanting to watch his shows with her was nothing new, and she generally didn’t mind them, even if it was her humble opinion that he watched entirely too much TV. His shows ranged from sitcoms to programs in fantasy settings, to police procedurals, he really watched everything. And he generally had good taste, even if she didn’t always understand what was going on once he hit episode X of season Y.

But she’d put her foot down when he asked her to watch a CW show with him.

J’s Corner: J gushes about Arrow

It felt weird realizing that after all these months on Tumblr and Twitter, I never sat down to talk about Arrow. It should have been done a long time ago but as many of you know, life has the tendency of getting in the way. But lately, the thought swirling in my mind began to get louder and louder. I have this voice that dictates the sentences that have to be put in writing and it won’t shut up until I put pen to paper (or in this case fingers to keyboard). So this week, I’m staring at that voice and saying “Fine!! I’ll do it! Just shut up!”. This does not mean that writing this post is a chore, far from it. It just means that I have half a brain (you know who has the other half) and I know that it’s going to be a daunting task. Because how do you put your feelings about a show you’ve been watching for over two and half years and reviewing for the past six months. Where do you begin? How do you go about it? I’m going to be honest, I have no idea. So I’m just going to start and see where I land. This is basically like brain dump with little to no structure. I hope I won’t lose you half way through and that will have fun reading this.

This is going to be very long, you’ve been warned!
