I have the next couple days off. My plan is to binge my writing until I finished the chapter that I'm not quite behind on. Right after I pass out. Thank god TV was light last night.
I did give up on Ducktales though. For some weird reason they decided to release the episodes daily, even multiples one in a day, and I just couldn't keep up. I'd rather work on my book... After I pass out again.

▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁
Geekly Weekly TV Rankings (➤ for new) ( I live tweet shows on twitter, but try  to keep those spoiler-lite @AndrewGeczy)
  1. Game of Thrones *****
    Great episode of the show, though it was rather more straightforward than I was expecting. I was expecting some twisty series of events that would be completely unexpected, but instead it was surprisingly simple. They attack King's Landing, they win. The surprise is how easy it is, and then how the real conflict comes from Daenarys just losing her mind and murdering everyone in King's Landing. I didn't really see it coming, but I kinda did, and in a way I can see how the whole show has built up to this. Good job in all, but I still kinda feel like this season isn't playing out the best way it could have.
  2.   The Flash *****Great episode. Totally different than Arrow, far better, but still had that sense of wrapping up the entire series at the end. With tons of goodbyes that felt final, including with Cisco. The final moments seemed focused on setting up next years crossover, making me feel more and more like the status quo is taking a real hit after this season, and the shows we've been watching will no longer exist the way we know them anymore. It's the end of an era, and this has been hitting me harder than I was expecting. I have a theory. THe last shot, of the years ticking down to 2019 on the article. I think the Monitor has been going to heroes at the end of their legacy and pulling them out of the timeline to throw them at the multiversal super bad foe like sheep to the slaughter. And then they die, and he goes to just a little earlier, and tries again, slowly eating up the future of our heroes in a never-ending dimensional war. That's my theory.
  3. Killing Eve ****1/2
    Parts of this episode were amazing, but some parts had me growing frustrated. Namely the scenes in which VIllanelle and Eve interact. When they are interacting with anyone else, it's amazing, and amazing things happen, and it's one of the best shows ever. And the whole time you watch it wanting them  to just interact. And then they interact and it feels wrong every time. When Villanelle tells Eve "Don't talk to me like that. I like you, but not that much. I am the most interesting thing about you." I would have liked Eve to push back, to fire back, to rebel. To say "I don't believe you." TO do anything but allow that to hang over them and walk away. And that's just one example. But the scene with the bus, amazing. The dinner scene undercover. So good. Five Stars! Almost.
  4. Supergirl ****1/2
    Really good episode of SUpergirl this week. I could nitpick, but the fact is, that's what I'd have to resort to because this episode did a lot to move the story forward, it had a good pace and some great moments. It did sorta brush the invasion plot under the rug at the very last minute though, which was strange and we'll see what happens going forward. I hope Lex didn't actually kill Russian Supergirl.
  5. Legends of Tomorrow ****
    Really fun episode this week. I really enjoyed Gary arc, and his third nipple, though I think he got off way too easy. I actually can't stand him, despite enjoying him this episode. I would have been happy if he was defeated this episode and never seen again. He's just so annoying, ridiculous and funny, but in an annoyingly not cool sorta way. I also enjoyed Nora becoming a fairy godmother, but I hope this isn't their attempt to write her off the show again for next season, because I want her to be a permanent member of the team. She's great. And Ray is great. And they are married in real life.
  6. Arrow ***1/2
    Very interesting season, or possibly series finale this week. They wrapped up everything. A little too quickly in fact. It was anti-climatic, though it was nice seeing everyone together again, I would have rather gotten an interesting plot, but it was plot that was sacrificed so that the show could wrap everyone up in a neat bow. Then, with his sister defeated, I realized there was still 20 minutes left, and what followed was like a montage of him living the perfect life with Felicity. They have the baby, and Oliver is happy. And I'm like "Oh shit, this is setting up for the crossover isn't it." And then the monitor showed up in his cottage. His time has come. Crisis on Infinite Earths. What followed was a tearful goodbye as Oliver leaves to fight, never expected to return. Rather insane that they sacrificed Arrow's practically series finale to set up the Crisis on Infinite Earths. But I can't wait. That crossover is going to be amazing. It's just a little rough, knowing a show I've been sticking with for seven years just came to an end as I know it. I wasn't ready. And it didn't really do a good of giving us a satisfying and climactic finale. There's still half a season left, but who knows what that will look like, who the enemy might be, or if Oliver will even be involved.
  7. Family Guy ***
    The episode started out strangely paced, slow and inconsistent. This might have been one of the most inconsistent episodes of the season. It was just strange the way their jokes played out early on. THey started out pretending they were a sitcom like big bang theory, and I feel that joke fucked up their pacing for a good while after. Reminded me of Big Bang Theory and vids online of people removing the laugh track. When Family Guy faded away their laugh track to end the joke, it just felt strange and awkward for half the episode until it got into the meat of the plot, and then it was a very good episode indeed, but it took a long time to get there. Which is too bad, because I appreciated the honoring of Adam West, even though that might have helped contribute to the problem. I suppose, if that's true, it was worth it.
  8. Saturday Night Live **1/2
    I actually enjoyed Emma Thompson. She was a good host, and did a variety of roles. And some of the sketches were fun, including the Beauty and the Beast one, and the one where Emma Thompson just beats up Leslie Jones. But an equal number of sketches were meh, and I didn't laugh all that often. Could have been my mood. But probably not.
