The Vampire Diaries
I know that the NFL Draft, Nets/Heat, Jerry McGuire, Grey's and John Tucker Must Die were all on at 8pm last night, but there was some crazy sh*t going on in Mystic Falls on Thursday. The town was taken over by travellers, everyone lost their powers, the Salvatores were homeless, the witches were helpless, the other side was falling apart and I'm not positive, but I think Stefan might have actually been killed. With all the shocking deaths of main characters in primetime this season it's possible right? Stefan's heart was ripped out and Bonnie saw him cross over. WTF? I went on Twitter and Facebook and nobody's saying anything about his demise. Somebody tell me…is he dead? Anyone? Anyone?

Francis and Mary can't get it together. They love each other and then he lies then they love each other and she tries to kill his father. King Henry didn't die which was the plan, but he's the craziest dude on the show, he can't die. Now his plan is to kill his own son and marry his daughter-in-law. Lola found out that Julian isn't Julian. He's Julian's assistant Remy. Julian's DEAD, Lola accidentally killed Julian's uncle,  Remy split and now Lola's heading back to court with Francis's baby and another secret to keep. 

The Goldbergs
Finallllly got to see The Goldbergs. Forget Chuck Norris, Speak & Spell, Zagnuts, and the Iron Sheik. Those were just the fun 80's references. This episode had SO much more. Return of the Jedi was opening and back then, you actually waited on A LINE. You couldn't buy tickets in advance ONline. You camped out over night just to be the first one to see it. Sure there are still Comic-Con freaks who get decked out and wait on lines for the new iPhone, but that's a different story. While Adam and Erica were on the line (and then off the line) Barry was learning the Annie soundtrack to fake out Bev as a diversion so she wouldn't find out that he really joined the wrestling team. Scariest thing and one I'm mortified to admit…I knew every word to "I Don't Need Anything But You" from Annie. I knew every word of  every song in Annie. Yep…LOOOOOSER! Loved every one of Bev's doomsday examples and her take down moves. I live for Bev Goldberg. Great episode!


OMG how bad was this weeks episode of Glee? It was written by Chris Colfer. I guess that's what you do when you've got nothing left, you let one of the cast write a script for the show. Kurt and retired performers doing Peter Pan, Rachel doing a benefit for animals just for good press, lame all around. I can't deal with Sam and Mercedes at all. The only thing the shows got going is Darren Criss and there's not enough of him anymore. Sure Academy Award nominee June Squibb guest starred, but do we care anymore? Not really.

-Okay, Beauty and the Beast and The 100 are being renewed by the CW. Totally get it and congratulations, but they also renewed Hart of Dixie. This is SHOCKING to me. You know I used to adore Hart of Dixie. It was cute and light and sticky sweet and I enjoyed it. It sucks now. Were there not any other solid pilots out there? No disrespect to Rachel Bilson or Scott Porter, but it's time to pack it in. It's time. I can't promise I'll be back for another season. Even if the CW promises me shirtless Wade and shirtless George fighting over Zoey…can't say I'll be back. I guess I'll take a wait and see approach at this point. I honestly can't believe it's been renewed. 

-More news from the CW. We had the good news with the renewals now the bad news Carrie Diaries, Tomorrow People & Star-Crossed were all cancelled. Sorry guys.  

-ABC renewed S.H.I.E.L.D. Resurrection, Castle, Grey's and Scandal and Once Upon a Time. No shocks there. Sort of surprised that Revenge was renewed. 

-This morning I was notified by Netflix that new members will be charged 1 dollar more than me…$8.99 a month, but to thank me for my loyal membership they won't be raising my price for 2 more years. Thanks Netflix. I'm not even sure if I'm angry about that or not.
