BEWARE : Serial binger! Yes, I confess; I am obsessed with tv shows! I'm a huge fan of crime dramas and basically anything that's good! Oh, and I love food. Enough said. :)
I just finished an Imposters binge, and boy, it was a great one! There are so many twists, turns and unexpected cons which elevate this show! The characters really develop a lot as well; it's crazy when you compare the first few episodes to the last and see how much each character has really changed!
I am definitely hooked and looking forward to S2 (fingers crossed)!
Bones had a long run and eventful run, to the joy of all its loyal fans. Brennan and Booth made a tremendous team! I loved the nature of the show and many of the characters such as Hodgins and Sweets (RIP).
However, in the last few seasons, I felt like the show had lost it's charm and I struggled to tune in each week. I think that the show had a satisfactory ending but I feel like there were so many unnecessary deaths such as that of Sweets and Max, and Hodgins' paralysis. Like, why??? Those were so brutal and only served to torture fans and characters on the show!
I know that this show gets a lot of flack for not being up to par, but I have to be honest; I genuinely enjoyed the show! The POV is different from the typical crime/procedural dramas that we all love since Conviction focuses on reopening cases and getting justice for those who were wronged by the system. I think that this is a contemporary approach as it links to a lot of current issues in America.
Hayes (Hayley Atwell) is a great, somewhat anti-hero character and truly leads the show. I think that some of characters seem misplaced such as Frankie and Tess as they just don't seem like they belong at the CIU. They are played by brilliant actors nonetheless and added to the 'star' quality with Frankie (Manny Montana) from Graceland fame and Tess (Emily Kinney) from The Walking Dead! I was thrilled to see Shawn Ashmore from The Following in this too; he's a good actor!
It would've been great to see how this show could've evolved if it was given a second season. I think that it would've allowed the characters to evolve more and to really push the POV further. It's a shame that it was short-lived but hopefully the actors will move on to greater roles.
I really enjoyed this show, and it had so much potential for further development along the line. It's a shame that it was cancelled after only one season - it deserved at least 2 seasons!
At the start, I was hooked on this show. There was so much drama and suspense which kept viewers on the edge, and everyone just wanted to know who 'A' was. I feel like there has been alot of drama and so many bad guys added in to keep things interesting, but frankly, it's confusing and frustrating. I feel like the show should've ended may seasons ago as it became too repetitive. I know that the showrunner is smart and she adds certain things in for a reason which we may not understand at the time but everything has been drawn out for far too long. Every time the liars get close to exposing the bad guys, they're out-witted and take two steps back.
I think that it was good to fast forward to 5 years later in S7, but introducing a whole new batch of A and AD drama just seems a bit amateur as the liars are sucked back into their old lives and ways in Rosewood. These women are no longer in high school, and they are still manipulated as if they were. I am happy that the show will be ending this season - it's been a long time coming. I hope that fans will have all their burning questions answered and we can finally move on from this show.
I have had a love/hate relationship with S1 of this show as there are times when I'm really intrigued by the story line, and then at other times, I was so disappointed with the portrayal of some characters. I have to admit that I really dislike Grace, and it's frustrating how she keeps screwing herself over as if she lacks any semblance of common sense.
I like that there are lots of plot twists and scandal to keep viewers questioning who really did the crime! If there is a S2, I hope that Grace gets her act together... the writers could easily tweak her personality after the events of the final episode to develop her character.
There has been alot of hype about this show, and I finally decided to watch it today. I didn't have high expectations when I watched a trailer for the show a while back, so I wasn't particularly interested in the series. I was totally wrong!
I thoroughly enjoyed the show, and it was gripping from start to finish! Eleven is my favourite character, and I think that the actress did an amazing job portraying a such a unique and diverse character! This show is definitely one to watch, and it does live up to all the hype and deserves praise!
This show was surprisingly interesting! The plot seemed to be slow and expected as most of the secrets were revealed early on. I feel like it would've been better as a movie rather than a show as there was not enough mystery and intrigue left to expand on in S2 if it were to be renewed.
I wasn't too keen on this show from the beginning as post-apocalyptic dramas aren't my favourite, but there was the interesting story line of angels and humans which peaked my interest. I enjoyed S1 to some extent, particularly the strained romantic relationships among the characters. However, I just lost the plot in S2. I feel like they kept adding more things to add drama and interest but it was just making the show more confusing especially with the random flashbacks! Also, it was frustrating how one minute Gabriel was trying to kill everyone, then he was helping Michael, then he was back to being the bad guy... and it just kept going on back and forth.
I believe that SyFy was right to cancel the show as it would've struggled in S3 despite teasing us with the introduction of Lucifer. Maybe he should have been introduced earlier in S2 and joined forces with Gabriel, rather than prolonging the 'Gabriel is the only archangel trying to extinguish the human race' plot for two seasons.
This show definitely has some comedic charm and intrigue for viewers! The storylines are outrageous and over-exaggerated but it works for this type of show to keep it going. I think Elisha Cuthbert and Kelly Brook are great in their roles, and I particularly like the British traits that Kelly's character offers as it adds some diversity to American comedy.
