Vampire Diaries Spinoff Pilot Is Happening

We found out yesterday that this season, there will be a backdoor pilot for a show that is currently called The Originals. Klaus and his family go back to New Orleans, reunite with an old friend named Marcel, and take Hayley with them. Julie Plec will write this episode and be the showrunner.

Our reaction? What a stupid idea for a show! And they are going to spend a whole episode of the Vampire Diaries on this? Klaus as a main character?!! He's the worst person! He's charming and Byronic on TVD when he's surrounded by good guys and wooing Caroline. But just him and his family? Bleck. This is going to ruin the lives of Klaroline shippers. 

Also, we like Rebekah and Elijah on TVD. Still, it might be nice to have Klaus gone, finally. He's turned into a whiner and not much of a threat on the show. We need new bad guys. We like the character for the most part, but we don't like what he's been doing to this show's plots. We think the backdoor pilot will fail and not be picked up.

Scandal, Season 2, episode 10, and Grey's Anatomy, Season 9, episode 10

Scandal: One for the Dog- Hot President is awake!! We knew the way things were going, with Sally threatening Mellie that the episode would end with Grant opening his eyes. He's going to be so angry when he finds out what his wife and aides did. This show is like The West Wing, only everyone's a liar and there's more sex. Grant should fire all these people. Even Olivia is just the worst person. We love it.

It's getting to where we've seen so many people tortured in entertainment that it doesn't even bother us anymore. How awful is that? We remember squirming watching 24 a decade ago, and now we just keep doing our hair and watching Huck get beaten and waterboarded out of the corner of our eyes. It wasn't a tame torture for TV either. It was pretty bad. The whole thing made us like David more though.

Nashville- Season 1, episode 9

Be Careful of Stones that You Throw- We're so close to the tour, we can smell it. Hopefully, the tour breathes new life into all of the plots. More good news: Teddy finally grew a pair. True, they are going to shrivel up and fall off next time Lamar changes tactics, but for now, we're glad to see him not be completely useless in every way.

Deacon, meanwhile, has gotten more interesting. He's not loving the rock-and-roll life, and he seems about two seconds from getting a drink. That music journalist he slept with/his ex is so beautiful. Unlike Rayna, she actually has a forehead. Yay! But neither his ex nor his picture on the cover of a magazine could quell his ennui. He needs to join Rayna's tour. Avery needs to have a humorous comeuppance at some point for all the betrayal.

We loved the song Twist of Barbed Wire. We've heard Scarlett do tons of old fashioned, quiet guitar pieces with Gunnar, so it's time she did something different. This rocked. It was way better than her last attempt to get grittier (the Johnny Cash cover that would have killed Cash if he were still alive). Scarlett should have joined that band. We guess some girls are just addicted to drama.

Happy Endings- Season three, episodes 7-9

We watched the Christmas episode where we found out that Jane was a "Christmas Baby," but we were too lazy to write anything about it here. Mostly because our thoughts amounted to: cute premise, funny episode. Not worth logging onto the blog to write that. This week, TWO episodes of Happy Endings aired. One was on the regular day and the other was on Sunday for Lord knows what reason. Maybe the network is trying to get more people to watch the show. Not many people have heard of it, and it's the most underrated comedy on right now. It doesn't even have a vocal cult like Community and Cougar Town do.

The Mindy Project- Season 1, episode 10

Mindy's Brother- If our brother wanted us to let him quit college, we might just let him. College might be  a scam unless you pick the right major or have a specific career plan. Seriously, before you go to college, read that. And don't go to law school.

Already been scammed by greedy universities or just need general motivation to make yourself better? Read this in its entirely. And this. See, this isn't just a comedy recap, it's a life changer! Yeeeee! Okay, onto the episode.

Good News for Cougar Town Fans

We watched the premiere on TBS last night, and the jump from network to cable didn't hurt the show at all. Everything is business as usual. Lots of quirky laughs, mean Ellie, and a soft center. Rejoice! It really made us want a glass of wine though, haha.

New Girl- Season 2, Episode 12

Cabin- Headsmack. We feel like this show made an irresponsible move having both Jess and Nick chug that much absinthe and then not die. Guys, they would have at least blacked out and hit the ground. We're not anti-drinking, but there is hardly ever a reason to even drink absinthe when regular alcoholic beverages will get you just as froggy, guaranteed. If you don't know anything about absinthe and then come across it at a party, remember: what it did to the people on New Girl was so tame it wasn't even funny. Seriously, it robbed all the comedy out of that part. They should have acted way more ridiculously.

Pretty Little Liars- Season 3, episode 14

She's Better Now- FINALLY. Not only is this show back, but Mona is back at Rosewood. Actually, what the eff? In what world would Mona be allowed to go back to Rosewood? She would have to be in treatment for years. No one can cure crazy in a couple of months. After someone knifes a cow brain into Mona's locker, she stalks around the school hallways way too slowly to get to the trash can. She's secretly relishing everyone's fear of her.

Deception- Season 1, episode 1

By 2ndteam at en.wikipedia [CC-BY-SA-2.5-2.0-1.0 (, GFDL ( or CC-BY-SA-3.0 (], from Wikimedia Commons
Pilot- Our first thought when we turned this show on was, "Oh no, not another one." This show instantly reminded us of Revenge, and it was like another network was trying to imitate its success. Fortunately, it's a little different in tone. It's marginally less melodramatic and a tad more realistic so far. No one does karate, thank the Lord. There's already more emotion and life in the secondary characters than there was in Revenge at this point. If the show keeps up this level of quality, we are going to like it better than we do Revenge.

Revenge- season 2, episode 10

Power- This episode more resembled the season one revenge plots. It had a nice, tight story arc with none of the confusion of the first half of this season. This episode worked for us because of the judge's wife. That was a good story, we loved her bravery at the end, and we were touched when Amanda thanked her for writing a letter that gave her hope during hard times. Everything with Amanda, Aidan, Daniel, and the Graysons was gold this week. We loved the fake-up Amanda staged with Aidan in front of Daniel. We love that Amanda is trying to get Daniel into a fake relationship again and that she kissed him. Of course, she will develop feelings for Daniel...again...and a real triangle can emerge. We're girls. We love a good triangle.

If You're An American Watching Downton Abbey Series 3 for the First Time

Here's the link to our review of last night's episode.

Once Upon a Time season 2, episode 10

The Cricket Game- Hook definitely needs Cora. Can you imagine him trying to take on Rumpy by himself? That would just be sad. Leeard wants Lana Parilla's haircut. Ern wants Red Riding Hood's everything. And Mary Margaret's clothes in this episode. We love that Emma invited Regina to the Welcome Home party.

Our Favorite Movies of the '90s

Movies were good in the '90s, y'all. They were better than most things on TV. The TV golden age didn't start until later. The movies got bad and uncreative, for the most part, and everyone with talent and vision moved to the small screen. Not everyone wants to make the next Transformers. Fortunately for entertainment buffs, DVDs exist and you can go back to the good movies anytime you want. We hope you didn't miss these, and if you did, you have all the time in the world to get to them.

Our Top Ten Movies of 1999
1. Fight Club- This was not properly appreciated in its time, in theaters. It was not appreciated by Ern the first time she saw it. But this is one that improves with subsequent viewings. You have to catch all the dialogue. You have to get what it's saying. It's brilliant, darkly funny, and completely unforgettable. The book is good too. If you haven't seen it, or if you've only seen it once and weren't that impressed, go pick up a copy.
2. The Matrix- The first half is long, weird, and pretty original. The second half kicks ass. This movie changed action and sci-fi, and it told a pretty good, spiritual story while it was at it. Sadly, the sequels did not live up to the first entry, although the second one would have been a good middle had the third delivered a powerful ending. We forget which critic said it best at the time, but we remember reading that the third one was full of "religious obligation." Viewers wanted real triumph, not depressing sacrifice. Still, the first Matrix is not to be missed.
