the complete third season

My Favorite Series In Order:

Sailor Moon:

I love the entire Sailor Moon franchise.  Yes, it’s mostly a nostalgia thing, but I can’t help but to love it.  The manga is a classic, and the 90′s anime, while being long and cheesy, is still something that to this day I will watch.  Usagi is a relatable character, and every senshi is enjoyable and unique to the show.  While the first two seasons of Sailor Moon Crystal were pretty terrible, the third season completely makes up for all of the faults in it thus far.  Plus, SeiUsa and HaruMichi are life.  

Assassination Classroom:

Assassination Classroom is a fantastic series.  This is a series where you grow with every character.  This series is a roller coaster of emotions.  It has some of the most incredible moments I’ve ever scene in anime, as well as some of the most heartbreaking.  The ending to this show mentally destroyed me, and is the only series to this day that will make me break down every single time no matter how many times I’ve seen it, both subbed or dubbed.  It teaches so many life lessons, and is a must watch/read for everyone. The first season closing is not only my favorite closing, but one of my favorite songs, that to this day, I still listen to. Also, KarmAgisa is life.  

Kuroko no Basket:

Alright, I love this anime. I love the characters, I love the manga, I love the voice actors, I love the fan arts, I love the fanfictions.  I love absolutely everything.  The story is intense, and it hooks you from the start.  If you like sports anime, this one is a must watch.  Also, AkaKuro and Kuroko x GoM my favorite <3 

Tokyo Ghoul:

I’m very connected with this series.  I’ve been following this series religiously every week for years, so of course it’s one of my favorites.  Now, the anime is very disappointing, and the second season doesn’t exist, but I will still love it, especially since the last few chapters of Re have been fucking phenomenal. The opening for the first season is easily one of my favorite songs ever created. Also, I need Re animated like now.  It deserves it.  Actually, I need Part One redone as well.  Can we just reboot the entire anime series?

Kuroshitsuji:

I love this series.  Like Tokyo Ghoul, I’m very invested in the manga.  Manga wise, I love the art style, and the story arcs; and once again like Tokyo Ghoul, the second season also does not exist.  The story is very well written, although this most recent arc is dragging a bit (but that’s normal for different series).  Ciel is such a little bastard, and it’s wonderful to read.  It’s a dark series that won’t get a happy ending, and that’s part of what hooks me to it. 

Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt:

This anime is fucking gold.  It is hilarious, and soo fucking inappropriate.  It’s by far my favorite comedy.  It’s art style is so unique and it has the best dubbing ever created.  The dub is by far better than the sub.  It also has the biggest cliffhanger ending, and fucking NEEDS a season two desperately.

I love this series so much.  This is another one of those series where I love every aspect about it, from the anime to the manga to the dubbing and subbing and even the Live Action T.V. Show and Movie.  It’s my favorite romantic comedy and always the first one I recommend to people looking for a shoujo.  Every character is unique in their own way and the story is really adorable.  I love the manga where you see so much development from everyone.  Also, Hikaru and Kaoru deserve Haruhi, and I don’t care what anyone says.  

No Game No Life:

Shiro is adorable as fuck.  As a gamer, this show relates so much to me.  It’s an amazing fantasy, and the story is perfect.  The animation is beautiful, and the colors are so vibrant and beautiful.  Sora and Shiro are cute together and their interactions make the show that much better. I need my second season.   Side Note:  Jibril is best girl.  

Shokugeki no Soma:

Food Porn.  Of course I’d love it.  This is once again another series where I’m invested in the manga, so of course I’d love the series.  I read the series weekly, and the most recent arc is making me fall further in love with the series.  The manga is a great read, and you actually learn a lot about cooking through the series, whether it’s the manga or the anime.  The food orgasms are hilarious, and the animation for this show is amazing.  I would kill for a season three of this show this year.  

Free!:

I will always have a soft spot for this series.  It was the first anime that really got me hooked to sports anime.  I love it.  Yes, it’s a bit dramatic at times, but being an ex-swimmer/lifeguard, I find this series so relatable, making me love it even more.  Also, the fan service is definitely a positive.  I love the Japanese voices, and the OP and ED’s for both seasons.  The movie prequel they did was also amazing.  The animation is gorgeous, but that’s to be expected from Kyoto Animation.  

So yeah, those are my top ten series!  Thoughts?

This sucks now we have both Friday the 13th and Halloween both in limbo is there any good news in regards to any of our favorite old school franchises?

  • Cult of Chucky is currently filming with release date set for this October.
  • Hellraiser: Judgment is finished with a limited theatrical/VOD release set for October as well.
  • Leatherface is complete and is expected to have a release date set shortly. 
  • Suspiria has completed filming and has revealed that it is not a remake but a semi-sequel, which means fans can rest easy knowing that it doesn’t retread the first and can fit comfortably as a spinoff of the Three Mothers trilogy.
  • Ash vs. Evil Dead is expected to launch its third season by the end of the year. 
  • Scream will also be heading into a third, albeit shorter, season. 
  • Puppet Master: Axis Termination has completed filming and might be a step-up over recent entries, as crowdfunding money is being put into the effects. 
  • Children of the Corn: Runaway has completed production, if that’s your thing. Worth noting that this sequel was actually directed by Feast’s John Gulager. 
  • Bates Motel will go full Psycho with its final season, debuting later this month, I believe. 
  • IT has completed filming, has confirmed its R-rating and will hit theaters on September 8th.  
  • Saw: Legacy will hit theaters on October 27th. It has also completed filming and is worth noting because the franchise is 13 years old at this point. 

There’s still plenty going on right now to keep the love of these classic horror franchises and characters alive. None of these things above are rumored. They’re all things that are completing production or have already been made. With that in mind, plus all of the promising original horror on the horizon, it’s looking like a really solid year for the genre even without Friday the 13th or Halloween. 

UPDATE:

  • Blumhouse’s Halloween reboot will be directed by David Gordon Green from a script co-written by Green and Danny McBride. This news comes from announcements just made via Blumhouse and from John Carpenter himself via his Facebook page. Release date set for October 19 of next year.

Author: yellowspotlight89

Serpents” (wip)

Summary: The two of them only needed to stand close and all the air compressed and got heavy around them. Thick, tense…even sensual. And from the looks the others gave them, it didn’t go unnoticed… Richonne x Dixonne. 2-3 Shot. Maybe more.

*This story hasn’t been updated since 2014 and it is both a Richonne/Dixonne threesome fic. It’s a very worth while read IMO, no matter which relationship you prefer. 

Author: PennyLane71

Locked Out Of Heaven” (wip)

Summary: Rick is falling hard and doesn’t know how to deal with it. If he opens up, will it make her stick around or drive her away for good? 100% Richonne.

Author: roswellchick22

Someone To Watch Over Me” (complete)

Summary: Taking place post the season finale (third) involving Carl and Michonne having a long discussion over what has taken place in Woodbury. This also turns into a moment when Rick realizes that Carl and Michonne have a connection, and perhaps he wants a connection with Michonne as well. This a Richonne fic, not to be confused or connected with my other fic “Clearer”.

“Clearer” (complete)

Summary: A moment between Rick and Michonne after 3x12’s “Clear”, which might be the beginning of something intentional between the both of them. This was directly written after the episode had aired and promptly finished after the season finale because I got inspired once again.

LITERALLY ANYTHING BY SIANCORE

*I’m just going to link her fanfiction page (just click on her name) where all her stories are currently. You cannot go wrong with her stories, she’s so creative and  awesome! Some of my favorites include “Fifteen Years Ago”, “A Home”, “Her Name” “ The Dusk of my Memory”, “Today was a Good Day” and “As She’s Walking Away”. Among many more!

AGAIN LITERALLY ANYTHING BY LYRA VERSE

Something Else” (one-shot/complete)

Summary: While spending the afternoon in each other’s company, Michonne and Rick reflect on their place at the prison and how far they’ve come.

Author: Cakebythepound

*Once again read anything by this author and you will not be disappointed. She is awesome, so go show her some love! My favorites include “The Other Woman”, “Jump On It”, “Knock Knock” and “Underneath It All”. I’ve read all her stories and she’s wonderful.

For example: “Foolish Hearts” is seriously sexy and oh so sweet while “Unpredictable” will leave you with a really good cry in the best possible way.

Author: Charrrmed

Apologize” (complete)

Summary: Set at the end of 5.16. Rick comes home after a long night, ready to continue making amends with Michonne and ready for a little something more, but she is even more irate about his reckless behavior now that she knows about Father Gabriel’s betrayal. Michonne wonders if she can continue trusting Rick, which shakes him to the core.

Verbal Communication” (wip)

Summary: The slow pace of life in Alexandria gives Rick and Michonne a chance to step away from what they do best (communicate without saying a word) and open their mouths. It’s touch and go, starting with Rick’s fumbling attempt to ask Michonne to live with him and the kids and worsening when Michonne finally confirms Rick’s long-held suspicion that she had a child.

Guiding Light” (wip)

Summary: There had been nothing heartwarming about that conversation, about her apprehension and fear. But the memory of her voice brought him a degree of comfort just the same.

*Great author who writes Richonne perfectly. Read all her stuff and I believe she has at least two more Richonne stories so I will link her page to all her fics, just click her name. Also, not all but some of her stories involve mature content. And in one, there’s this thing that happens with a ring that I can’t even talk about. Take some deep breaths!

Author: givesup

The Richonne Chronicles” (wip/collection of one-shots)

Summary: One-shots focusing on the lovely ship known as Richonne.This will have everything from fluff to angst and everything in between.

*Captures Rick and Michonne perfectly, indivdually and together. I love these stories and I can’t wait more more. I love them all but my favorite would have to be the ones titled “Richonne short” which is 4 parts and “Mellifluous”, something about those two just stayed with me for some reason, but they are all amazing and worth reading. 


******Lyra Verse, Cakebythepound, Siancore and Shipnation are all on tumblr btw. If I forgot someone I apologize and please let me know.


Part 2 and maybe 3 coming soon!

The Structure of Hannibal Finales: No Contradictions

In every finale of Hannibal, there is an action and a consequence and they are never completely disconnected from each other. Each action gets the consequence that we have been led to believe will come. There are no contradictions. Foreshadowing in each finale confirms this even further as I will explain. This proves that Will’s plan in the end was to escape with Hannibal, fake their death, and eat Bedelia.

This is how the structure goes in each finale:

S1: Hannibal wants to frame Will —> Will is in prison in the last scene

S2: Will warns Hannibal to run —-> Hannibal is escaping on a plane in the last scene

S3: Will threatens Bedelia “meat is back on the menu” —–> they’re eating Bedelia together in the last scene

It’s important to remember the motivation is the same as the resulting action in the last scene of the finale.  The plan of the active character, whether Will or Hannibal, is successful every time.

Hannibal wanted Will in jail and it happened. 

Will wanted Hannibal to run away and it happened. 

Will wanted Bedelia to be eaten and it happened.

If we theorize that in S3 Will really wanted both himself and Hannibal to die, this goes against the structure of every previous finale in the show. This is what it would look like in contrast to both other finales:

S3: Will wants to kill himself and Hannibal —-> they’re eating Bedelia together in the last scene

There is no connection there and it is in fact a direct contradiction. As I said, there are no contradictions working back from the final scene to the motivation and action that came before it. If we say that what Will really wanted was to kill himself and Hannibal, the structure of the show demands that they be dead in the end. We know they are not.  Thus, Will’s motivation and plan leading up to the ending scene was certainly to let Hannibal out of prison so that they could eat Bedelia. 

In each finale, there is a certain twist in between the action and the final scene. In Season 1, Will is given a chance to thwart Hannibal’s plan but it is not successful.  In Season 2, Jack is given a chance to thwart Will’s plan but he is not successful.  In Season 3, Francis is given a chance to thwart Will’s plan but he is not successful.  

In NONE of these “twists” does the active planning character thwart their own plans!  Hannibal does not try to keep Will out of prison. Will does not try to keep Hannibal from escaping. And likewise, Will would not try to keep himself and Hannibal from eating Bedelia.  

Furthermore, in each case there is a foreshadowing in the beginning of the finale of what happens right before the final scene!

In season 1, Will sees the Wendigo at the very beginning of the episode in his dream/hallucination, which foreshadows Will seeing Hannibal’s true self near the end.

In Season 2, Will “shoots” the ravenstag very near the beginning which foreshadows the ravenstag dying at the end. 

In Season 3, we see Francis fake his death at the very beginning which foreshadows Will faking his and Hannibal’s death right before the final scene.

Every time, the foreshadowing lines up with what happens. It does not contradict it.  Will sees Hannibal is the Wendigo. The ravenstag is dying. And Hannibal and Will’s death was fake just as Francis’ death was fake.

Unless one is willing to say that the third season finale of the show is COMPLETELY different structurally from both other finales, then the evidence shows that Will’s plan was to escape with Hannibal by faking their death so that they could eat Bedelia in the end.

for any new kids who are experiencing a cancellation for the first time:

This is not the first time my favourite show has been cancelled and it won’t be the last. It’s always hard, because you’ve put so much time into a show and you’ve grown to love it, and at times it can be the only thing that makes you happy.

But this is just one of those things. The ratings were bad, there was no way that NBC could continue to keep it on. The good news is that we’ll be able to see the third season to completion (some shows get axed and that’s that, no new episode, just pfft. One of my fave shows about ten years back was dealt that cruel blow. It’s the WORST and you all need to take a big sigh of relief that this isn’t happening to Hannibal).

We also do have a realistic chance at getting picked up by Amazon Instant or Netflix. So maybe start emailing, tweeting them. It can’t hurt to try.

But all in all, you’ll be okay, darlings.

EVERY COMIC BOOK SHOW ON TELEVISION...AND IT'S A LOT OF THEM!

Check out the video:



Are we currently in the golden age of comic book television? On a larger scale, many would certainly agree that we are in the golden age of comic book cinema in general. Over the next 4 years, until the year 2020, there will be at least THIRTY comic book movies that will be released in theaters. Additionally, television and streaming services is hosting at least FIFTEEN different comic book properties. In my post about SUPERGIRL, I mentioned some worries that I have with overcrowding that I feel could certainly pose a threat to the amount of produced media we see with these properties. Will audiences become burned out from the overwhelming amount of properties being brought to life? Time will only tell, but I’ve found a recent video produced by Tasty Productions that does a very good job at outlining all of the comic book television shows that exist. I give some written details below. To keep things organized, this outline will categorize the shows by their respective networks: 


THE CW


External image

ARROW (DC COMICS) | October 2012 - Present

Arrow has just completed it’s third season on the CW, and has already been confirmed for a fourth season. Arrow was really one of the first live-action superhero television shows, and can be viewed as the original property that began comic book tv madness (besides Smallville, of course). 


External image

THE FLASH (DC COMICS) | September 2014 - Present

The Flash television series is a spin-off from the Arrow television series, and has featured multiple crossover episodes of the Arrowverse characters. If you ask me, I think The Flash currently holds the crown as being the best live-action superhero show thus far.


External image

DC’s LEGENDS OF TOMORROW (DC COMICS) | DEBUT: 2016

Legends of Tomorrow  will also exist in the same universe as Arrow/The Flash, and will feature a crossover of characters from both shows such as Captain Cold and the Atom. The Show will premiere in January 2016


External image

iZOMBIE (VERTIGO) | March 2015 - Present

I don’t know much about this property other than the fact that the lead character, Olivia is turned into a zombie, and then works at a Seattle Morgue, in order to satisfy her urge for brains. Nonetheless, the show has been renewed for a second season.

ABC


External image

MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. (MARVEL) | September 2013 - Present

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. upon its debut, brought in massive ratings for ABC. However, ratings steadily declined as the show struggled to find its footing within the larger context of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Despite this, the show has seen improvements in reviews for the second season, and has been renewed for a third season. 


External image

MARVEL’S AGENT CARTER (MARVEL) | January 2015 - Present

After positive response from the Agent Carter One-Shot, a short series was ordered to air during the mid-season break of season two of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Additionally, Agent Carter has also received positive reviews from audiences and critics, and will return for a second season, with Marvel constantly expanding their cinematic universe.

FOX


External image

GOTHAM (DC COMICS) | September 2014 - Present

The Gotham television series is taking the Smallville approach, and exploring the character of Bruce Wayne before he became the Batman. While initially excited for this show, I found myself less invested as the season progressed. The story simply isn’t entertaining or enjoyable, and the acting isn’t very good. Regardless, Gotham will continue on with its second season debuting this fall.


External image

LUCIFER (VERTIGO) | Debut: 2016

The plot will focus on Lucifer “who is bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell and resigns his throne and abandons his kingdom for the beauty of Los Angeles, where he gets his kicks helping the LAPD punish criminals,” according to Deadline.com 


External image

UNTITILED X-MEN TV SERIES (MARVEL) | Debut: Unknown 

Pretty much nothing is known about this X-Men television series other than the fact that it is in development. With hundreds of mutants to choose from, I’m sure Twentieth Century Fox will be able to expand their mutant canon into the world of television.

NETFLIX

DAREDEVIL (MARVEL) | April 2015 - Present

Marvel expanded their cinematic universe once again with Daredevil; a highly stylized, yet gritty look into Hell’s Kitchen, NY. The series drew rave reviews from critics, and was renewed for a second season. Daredevil is also a part of a larger plan by Netflix to create a team up in The Defenders featuring street-level heroes.

MARVEL’S A.K.A. JESSICA JONES (MARVEL) | Debut: 2015

MARVEL’S LUKE CAGE (MARVEL) | Debut: Unknown

MARVEL’S IRON FIST (MARVEL) | Debut: Unknown

MARVEL’S THE DEFENDERS (MARVEL) | Debut: Unknown

With Daredevil kicking off the Netflix MCU side of things, additional shows will premiere over the next couple of years, leading to The Defenders. Alan Fine, president of Marvel entertainment stated, “This serialized epic expands the narrative possibilities of on-demand television and gives fans the flexibility to immerse themselves how and when they want in what’s sure to be a thrilling and engaging adventure. The series will all be set in Hell’s Kitchen, New York, and will unfold over several years. Their world is said to be a gritty one as well, though Marvel’s series have largely straddled the line between realistic worlds and comic book-style fun.”

TNT

TEEN TITANS (DC COMICS) | Debut: 2015

One of DC’s biggest brands since the 1980s, Teen Titans will see popular superhero such as Robin, Raven and Starfire see live adaptations on TNT in the upcoming year. 

CBS

SUPERGIRL (DC COMICS) | Debut: November 2015

We just recently received our first-look at Supergirl, set to debut this fall. It is rumored that Supergirl will exist in the same universe as Arrow and The Flash, yet we have seen no actual evidence that this will be true. The cousin of Superman is sure to bring a new element to comic book television with a female lead.

PLAYSTATION NETWORK

POWERS (MARVEL) | March 2015 - Present

Synopsis: “Set in a world where humans and super heroes co-exist, a former power now homicide detective, Christian Walker had his own powers taken from him. Along with his partner Deena Pilgrim they work in a special homicide division called Powers, which investigates crimes involving superhumans.”

NBC

CONSTANTINE (DC COMICS) | Cancelled

Nothing really to say about this one since it didn’t get renewed for a second season. However, Arrow’s Stephen Amell is lobbying for the show to join the Arrowverse. Yeah, we’ll see how that goes. 

 

miss-lyrical-leftie  asked:

1. Your fics are 👌🏻👌🏼👌🏽👌🏾👌🏿good smut 10/10 would recommend 2. Prompt: Olicity Netflix and chill

(Thank you so much! This is a Olicity College AU… because apparently writing anything substantive is off the menu for my muse these days…)

The mid-winter sun slanted through the curtains, sneaking through the open cracks, lighting up the dark room. His eyes were riveted on the screen, watching with rapt attention the third season finale of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Felicity dozed in his arms - she’d already seen it seven times. They’d just finished shoveling their way through the third season all weekend, nonstop, and completing Oliver’s not-so-subtle obsession with Buffy and Angel. She deserved a nap, darn it, because getting him to watch it all had been a trial in and of itself.

He was wrapped around her, his head propped on his hand so he could see over hers. Their feet were tangled together and the comforter was cocooning them perfectly. She was content to never move, not ever again, as long as she had her boyfriend, her bed and her Netflix. More specifically her now Buffy-obsessed boyfriend.

She made a mental note to remind him he owed her twenty bucks.

“I thought you knew where I landed when it comes to vampires. I’m not watching a show with the actual word ‘vampire’ in the title, Felicity.”

He jumped every few seconds, making a little noise, as the gang defeated Mayor Wilkins. She could watch it in her mind’s eye as it played out on her screen, and since he’d already chastised her about giving important things away when she turned to look at him while watching it…

“I like seeing people’s reactions, it makes it feel like I’m watching it all over again.”

“Well, knock it off, I know when something huge is coming up because you always swing around to look at me.”

… she’d resorted to keeping herself still in order to feel him reacting instead.

Oliver sighed, a soft, “Oh,” and she knew it was the scene where Buffy was seeing Angel for the last time. Felicity bit her lip to keep her smile at bay when his arm wrapped around her waist tightened a bit, holding her closer, his head dipping down so his lips were pressed to her hair.

Her boyfriend was a Buffy/Angel ‘shipper.

It was the cutest thing ever.

As the episode came to a close, Felicity shifted, pressing herself closer to him and Oliver took a deep breath. As he let it out, he melted against her and Felicity reciprocated, running her toe over the heel of his foot, smiling.

He was a quiet watcher, Oliver Queen. He had to process and think about what he’d just watched before he could indulge her in her rapid-fire thoughts, and her thoughts were especially fast when it came to Buffy. She’d learned that after the first few episodes, and it was usually in the middle of the next season that he got his thoughts in order and it came out in random questions over breakfast or in the middle of the night.

When she’d first met Oliver, her first thought had been: this guy is trouble because he’s got heartbreak written all over him. Never in her wildest dreams would she have thought: this guy is trouble because he enjoys the same OTP as her.

“I now know where you get ‘fire bad, tree pretty’,” he whispered.

Felicity giggled. “Buffy gets me.”

Neither of them moved as the credits rolled. Joss Whedon’s, ‘Grr, Argh,’ played before Netflix queued up the next episode… and they still didn’t move.

It was Sunday, and it was late on a Sunday afternoon at that, Felicity knew they should move at some point, because classes didn’t stop for Buffy, no matter how much she thought they should… but they didn’t move.

As season four started, Felicity turned in his arms. Oliver propped himself up again, his eyes on the screen and she pulled her leg up, hooking it over his hip, pressing a soft kiss to his pulse point.

“Chinese after this one?”

“Mmhmm,” he agreed absently, nodding.

Felicity grinned, craning her neck to give him a proper kiss. He barely returned it at first, already lost in Buffy’s first day as a freshman, but then a second later he smiled, and kissed her properly.

Best. Sunday. Ever.

Carrie Fisher Completed Work on ‘Star Wars: Episode VIII’ Before Her Death
Carrie Fisher’s death Tuesday at the age of 60 has left her involvement in a number of film and television projects unresolved. Chief among them is her ongoing role in the Star Wars franchise…
By Brent Lang, Cynthia Littleton

The eighth film in the series, in which Fisher appears as Leia Organa, wrapped shooting in July and is now in post-production. Sources tell Variety that Fisher’s work on the sequel was finished. That means that Disney and LucasFilm, the producers of the Star Wars series, will not have to address Fisher’s death until the ninth film begins shooting in 2018. Leia was originally slated to appear in that production.

Beyond Star Wars, Fisher was highly sought after for her on camera work and for her writing and script doctoring. Among her many projects, Fisher had a recurring role on the Amazon/Channel 4 comedy series “Catastrophe,” playing the caustic mother of star Rob Delaney’s character. The show’s third season is set to premiere early next year. Fisher was on a flight returning from her work on the show in London at the time she suffered a heart attack.

“Catastrophe” has completed filming for its third season which will air in the spring. Fisher appears in one of the season’s six episodes. The show has already been renewed for a fourth season. There’s no word yet on how the show will handle Fisher’s character in upcoming seasons.

Stages of watching a TV show

1. The show comes up in conversation with a friend. They give you an overview which sounds interesting. They really enjoy it, so you think that you will give it a shot.

2. Watch the first episode of the first season.You are intrigued. You don’t know it, but your life is about to change.

3. Watch the rest of the first season over some weeks. You form close bonds with certain characters and hate others.

4. Find out there are more seasons out. Thank the powers that be that you missed out on the hiatus.

5. Watch the whole of the second season in a single week. You are in love with this show.

6. Watch the whole of the third season in a single weekend. You are now completely obsessed with the show.

7. The show is in hiatus after the third season. You cry and scream and rave about how cruel this world is.

8. Watch every single possible behind the scenes footage; interviews with the cast, writers and producers; bloopers; and every single video to do with every aspect of the show that there is. You are still not satisfied.

9. Post one thing after another after another about the show, and still the gaping hole inside of you is not fulfilled.

10. Search all the stores and browse all over the internet for any hint that they sell anything to do with the show. Find a store that does and start buying all of their products, so nobody will doubt that you are anything but the most dedicated fan in history.

11. The release date is announced for the next season, and you are ecstatic - so ecstatic that everyone around you questions your mental, physical and emotional health.

12. The release date arrives. You refuse any plans that your friends or family might make, no matter how important. You will watch the premier no matter what the cost.

13. Eagerly wait for each episode to air each week. It is torture to wait a whole week to watch your show when you had been binge watching it for the last three seasons; but you don’t care. You are too far gone.

14. Rant about this amazing, fantastic, brilliant, epic show to anyone who will listen (and some who won’t) trying desperately to get them to watch it also so they can share your pain and joy.

15. Look back on your life before you discovered your show, tutting at the stupidity of the person you were and wondering how you ever got through each day without the wisdom that your show offers you. You can’t imagine life without it. You wonder if you will ever recover. No, no you won’t.

The Final Episode

I found the final episode of Hannibal to be a very fitting end to three of the most unpredictable and riveting seasons of television I have ever seen. While the first season began as more of a standard crime show, with a “murder of the week” feel, it was really interesting to see the direction Bryan Fuller took the following two seasons, and the unique character development he created with characters that were not his own. Although the three seasons differed vastly - the third season itself feeling like two completely separate seasons - one thread tied them together: an epic love story featuring two star-crossed lovers.

From the beginning, it was clear that Will and Hannibal had a connection like no other. Though obviously not a love story in the traditional, physical sense, their connection was deeper. Two men, so very different, but so uniquely messed up in the head that they were truly the only two that could understand each other. It was that understanding that brought them together, and the same understanding that drove them apart. They knew they could never be together, but they could never be apart, no matter how hard Will may have tried. As Bedelia says, “you can’t live with him, you can’t live without him.”

The final scene was the manifestation of this love story, with an ending that matched the intensity of their love. Both men using Francis Dolarhyde as a puppet in their plan, Will to kill Hannibal, and Hannibal to do the same to Will’s family, thus ruining his life. Will knew he had to be there to let Hannibal escape, just as Hannibal knew he must be used as bait. Both men planned to end up together, as Dolarhyde mounted his last attack.

As Will and Hannibal fought the Great Red Dragon, and Will slit his throat, it became clear that this is what needed to happen all along. Hannibal wanted Will to find that killer within, while Will needed to bring justice. Justice and morality being the thing that separated Will and Hannibal, the sentiments that would never let them be together, Will knew he had to kill Hannibal, and Hannibal knew it as well. “This is all I ever wanted for you Will,” Hannibal says to him as they embraced, “all I ever wanted for us.” In this beautiful moment, the two lovers were together, knowing that their stars could never be un-crossed, but knowing further that they could never be apart.

So I was re-watching episodes of the 1st and 2nd season of Orphan Black and I came to one single conclusion, the writers fucked up with the 3rd season (so badly that is going to take a huge effort to make the show good again in the 4th season) like:

Attention Spoiler alert if you haven’t finished the third season

  1. Alison’s plot - In the first two seasons her plot even thinking it was always a little far from the main plot, always kept a connection with the main plot (Season 1 - Alison was trying to figure out if Donnie was her monitor and Season 2- Is all about her trying to keep her life normal as she signed in the contract with DYAD), but in the third season her plot became completely apart from the rest of the show excluding the scenes where she played Sarah for Ferdinand and when Cosima needed her urine samples, it was a great plot but better for a spin-off show than for the main show;
  2. Project Castor - the idea of male clones would have been great if wasn’t shoved down in everyone’s throat, by the way why the hell the dudes were all  over Dr. Coady, in the female clones each one of them have interests, opinions and mostly curiosity over what are they, but Coady boys toys never seemed to question why their mommy did what she did. I wish we could have seen a guy clone digging up all this shit like Sarah did in season 1 and joining forces with her to take this crap down
  3. Paul’s plot () - Like WTF? They had this character who was trying to win back his position in the military, by having DYAD to clean up his old mess and then we find out that he has being a triple agent, since he was being put on the DYAD by the military why the hell he was a monitor, couldn’t he, I don’t know. be a super security guard to someone more important like Rachel? Since he didn’t know that Beth knew about the clones, and taking Donnie as example (And Cosima’s comic book) the monitors aren’t supposed to know about the clones, so why would he take such a insignificant job as monitor where we would gather such little to none information? Why not a bigger job right upfront?
  4. Delphine - talk about a double agent, Delphine Cormier plot’s was thrown in the trash in the beginning of the season, all that matter was her boss bitch af came back in the first episode, it was such a shame to waste Evelyne Brochu talent in this season, because is easier trust in Paul who the whole show never really took a side than the only person who really helped the clone club since the beginning (Remember when she didn’t told Leekie about Kira when she wasn’t so deep in this shit) then we see this amazing doctor who could just said “fuck this shit” and found a great job in a another multinational who doesn’t have clones under their concern, but she kept there taking care and saving the clones even when they treated her like shit (like when she warned them about Rachel’s ally who helped to kidnap Kira? Or when she warned them about the neolutionist who was going to steal the blood samples). All she asked in return was a little faith and trust in her so she could help them even more, and then she gets (presumably) killed. (i’m not getting started with the fact that they destroyed one of the most great LGBTQ+ couples of the prime time tv for a rebound relationship generated by dating app, because I mostly don’t like shay at all she looks more like a monitor than Delphine ever was and I’m trying to keep my cophine shipper at bay)
  5. all the story lines that they could have followed- Rachel’s redemption, Scott and Felix being the duo who is tired of this clone bullshit, Delphine and Felix being friends and sass masters of the world, Scott and Krystal becoming friends (or even more) after he introduces her to this clone world, and so it goes on..
