On this week's episodes we finish off the last four episodes of Season 2 and discuss all the other awesome tv that happened last week.
Mark requested we open the show with Britney Spears, after accusing Andy of being a “fan.” Who makes a music video based on “Earth Girls are Easy”? Who REMEMBERS “Earth Girls are Easy”?!??! We’re not buying Iggy Azalea albums.
“Love and Monsters” Mark thinks this is worst episode of anything ever. It’s far too silly. Andy kind of loves it. The Scooby Doo gag. The Doctor is barely in this episode at all. We don’t need the thought of Jackie being a cougar. Andy’s crush on Moaning Myrtle.
“Fear Her” The Olympics tie-in was gimmicky. Child abuse is super scary and dark. How did Brits know the Kookaburra song?
“Army of Ghosts”/”Doomsday” Rose is toast, right? Andy feels robbed she didn’t die. Torchwood– they’ve got cool tech, but they’re not quite ready for prime time. The return of Mickey. Daleks throw some serious shade:
The lovey-dovey stuff: falling in love with alternate universe versions of our significant others. The problem of “cute.”
The end of this episode is NOT tragic.
Do you want to build a snowman?
We never bought into the love story of The Doctor and Rose. The Doctor is a dick. You had your chance for a Han Solo moment and you wasted it. Oh, but the fanfiction. . .
Next week I’m gonna start watching Torchwood!
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is amazing. They saved the best for the last two episodes, and the very best for the last five minutes. Leave Fitz and Simmons alone!!! Glad there isn’t going to be a Bobbie and Hunter spinoff show. That Gordon vs. Coulson, Mack and Fitz fight scene. Coulson joins the running gag of Marvel Phase 2 movies. More Blair Underwood, not necessarily with Agent May. Whither HYDRA and Ward? Kyle McLachlan unhinged and awesome. Agents of SHIELD’s ratings and it as a “loss leader” for ABC/Disney/Marvel. That finale– more Inhumans are coming?!?
The DC shows: Flash, Arrow, Supergirl. Flash is great. That Supergirl trailer. It does look a little like the Black Widow SNL trailer, but then she pulls a plane out of the sky. How to fix Arrow Season 4.
What shows we’ll re-watch and catch up on over the summer. Buffy. Binge-watching Buffy. Supernatural.
