    S03.E04: Chapter Four: The Sauna Test

    I am only now picking my jaw off of the floor. That was insane. She tossed him straight through a wall. A freaking wall. I might come back when I can think straight and not only remember that one thing.
  2. Poor Will and his ongoing PTSD. I mean, part of it is probably being a teenage boy and I totally understood him feeling left behind. But also, I don't think he's ever been allowed to move on from his abduction. Joyce, try as she might took him into a spooky lab for tests but did she try to get him some form of counselling? Must be so maddening, you know. Mike, even in his imagined state continues to be a little shit. I was looking at those flashbacks where he was cute and nerdy and that's just all gone now. Loved the spycrafting. Dustin is such a star. I'm glad Nancy is so tenacious. What the hell are they reporting about in that newspaper anyway? Because I imagine it's mostly like cats in trees and whatnot. That dinner scene was some next level Charles Manson trippy shit. Yikes. Hopper getting beaten up, also yikes. Loved the conversation at the beginning though, because it's hard to decide which one of them is nuttier. The lady with the magnets or the grouch wearing a towel and a shirt. So, who is running the ice cream parlor when both of its employees are running about not serving ice cream? I think Erica should have just waited for the right moment and go to town with the ice cream tasting.

    The InBetween

    You know what would have been more interesting? If the lead character didn't lead such an angelic life, and woke up with these visions in the pilot episode. Perhaps it would be more interesting if everyone in her life needed convincing in her abilities rather then her being flippant/casual about it. Basically, I thought this would be the premise when I first saw the trailer.

    S03.E02: Chapter Two: The Mall Rats

    You go, Nancy Drew. Missed her so much. Loved the Material Girl scenes. Especially the coke exploding because I'm secretly 12 and have a weird sense of humour. "I dump your ass" Yay. You do that. Look at Hopper and his Magnum PI impersonation. Too bad he got stood up though. Aww, Steve and Dustin. I laughed so hard. Everything is just so deliciously 80's. Love it.

    The InBetween

    Just started watching this show and it really needs to step up its game. Loved the first episode, especially that final scene. I don't know if it was the set up or the song but I really got the shivers. In the second episode my attention started slipping already. I think the focus should be on the psychic and whatever The Inbetween is and not so much on everyday police work. Also, when a guy reports his wife and child missing, why would you show him random mug shots? Won't that lead to much confusion and false accusations? It was all very hilariously random. I also agree about the house and the job and the general lifestyle of the main character. Just like they shoved that in because being psychic alone isn't interesting in itself.

    S01.E02: The Last Nice Guy in New York

    I don't think Benji had an iPhone. Didn't look like it to me anyway. So does the other book shop guy know that there's a soundproof cage in the basement?

    S01.E01: Pilot

    I must say I find this show surprisingly compelling. Not sure what to make of Joe, or if I find him creepy or astute or a bizarre mix of both. Yes, curtains are good. I also like the idea of seeing past the superficial mirrors people put up on social media.

    S01.E11: Chapter Eleven: A Midwinter's Tale

    It was okay for a Christmas episode. I think shows with long hiatuses between seasons (looking at you Stranger Things) really benefit from Christmas episodes. I really liked the Gryla plotline. Out of the five million different ones crammed into this episode, that one stood out. I didn't think she was THAT evil or scary though. re: Susie, the actor/actress (not sure what the right definition is, just actor?) is very elfin looking. Who knows why some people are so much more bitten by the Christmas bug then others. I don't know if it's because I saw the actress kill it in Hill House, but younger Sabrina seemed a little too old and weary to sit on Santa's lap. Shame it was only one scene, too. The second season is going to be interesting in terms of relationships.
  10. Now that I've finished, I can say I was pleasantly surprised. I didn't go into this expecting to make it far (hell, only just made it through the Riverdale pilot) but it was quite enjoyable. Perhaps signing the book was necessary because it'll make her grow as a witch. She's been going about the magic/witchy stuff half assed because I don't think anyone ever told her everything she needed to know. I don't know about the goth look but I really preferred the post-book signing version. So, when Sabrina's mom said they took her baby, perhaps she wasn't talking about Sabrina. I foresee secret sibling stuff coming in season 2. I don't mind Roz or Susie or Harvey with helpful skills. It wouldn't be half as interesting if they went about not knowing for five seasons. Then I'd prefer they'd be useful rather then plot points. I think it will be interesting to see what happens with a relationship that is supposed be adversarial by nature but isn't. "I don't fly without you, Sabrina" makes my heart melt every time.

    S04.E01: America the Beautiful

    The contemporary music over the last five minutes completely took me out of an otherwise good opening episode. I know that in the book Marsali is not with them (and she's already had Germain etc) but how did Claire not notice that sooner? In the book she does, anyway. Young Ian (John Hunter Bell) is such a gem. Loved every scene he was in. The CGI background couldn't have been more glaringly obvious if they put up a sign saying "THIS BACKGROUND IS REALLY FAKE" on it. Because I saw someone mention it on the first page, Bonnet did look like a poor man's Heath Ledger with Johnny Depp theatrics. I always imagined him to be a more polished character, though.

    S01.E04: The Twin Thing

    I think it was coincidence. And she was warning her brother to leave rehab to find her (Nellie), not Joey.

    S01.E04: The Twin Thing

    I thought this was the lesser episode of the four I've seen. The ghost creeping under the bed made me jump, but in hindsight I found it sort of hokey. Why does he need the cane? He floats, he doesn't actually need to support himself. But then I ask myself the strangest questions. The old lady reflected in the speaker thing was far creepier. So, Luke basically kicked himself out of the recovery centre to find his friend, who then skipped off down an alley and he didn't bother to check that she hadn't been attacked or something? I kept waiting for the reveal that Joey (after he found her) was never real in the first place. Younger Luke is adorable. I loved that line when he asked if anyone else was with Nelly on the other side of the speaker. Theo or the housekeeper. Same difference. Amused me anyway.

    S01.E03: Touch

    I think the mom is really good at putting up walls. Not sure what she does all day, but this isn't just one thing. It's a lot of things happening to all your children. It wasn't really a jump scare episode, but I liked the underlying psycho analysis of what ghosts are and how we create them for ourselves. I'll second and third how wonderful the kid actors are.

    S01.E02: Open Casket

    I think I would have flipped out too if someone MADE me look at a dead body in a casket. The kid said (numerous times) that he was at peace with her passing and didn't feel the need. Stop banging on about how it'll help him cope. I thought the made up dead Nellie looked artificial. Like, nothing like in that wedding picture. I watched that corpse make up scene through my fingers. My great grandmother was laid out on a bed at the funeral home. She looked peaceful and it really helped me process. I don't think a casket would have had the same effect. It's the whole confined space effect that freaks me the fuck out. Open casket funerals are luckily not a thing here. I don't think I can look at kittens the same way ever again. I'm not sure if what freaked me out more about the last five minutes of this episode. It replayed in my head for hours.
