The only Positive Parts of the Riverdale Season 2 Finale

Huge, major spoilers down below! 

Riverdale’s Season 2 has been below par for me personally. The episodes haven’t been as gripping as the first season and there’s way too much Archie for my liking. The finale was mediocre and felt like a long overhaul on a bad season, however, it still had a few taking points and scenes that made me happy and giddy and were cute:

  1. Jughead becoming the Serpent King – I mean, really, ABOUT TIME.
  2. Cheryl joining the Southside Serpents, and that red jacket. WOW.
  3. Moose and Kevin kissing! Keeping all my happiness aside, Kevin Keller deserves some happiness after all. He’s never had a proper relationship and I’m rooting for one.
  4. Archie finally realizing what a crazy town Hiram Lodge is and LETTING HIM GO.
  5. The whole of Riverdale High standing up for the Southside students.

 

Riverdale returns in the Fall and to be super honest, I’m not strongly looking forward to it. Cole Sprouse is my number one reason for going back to this show.

My Summer Watch List!

On Saturday, I finally got done with my fourth year finals exam (after what seemed like a decade!)
I have now successfully found a ton of material (shows/movies) to watch this summer before I go back to college for fifth year. Here’s an inconclusive list of what I plan to start binge watching soon:

  1. 13 Reasons Why (Season 2): This is kind of a no brainer. I’m a huge fan of the book and the first season and I can’t wait to see what this new season brings especially since the book runs out after the tapes. I also really want to see Julian become an all-out hero for Jessica.
  2. Greenhouse Academy (Season  2): I had started the second season before I started with exams, but I still have the whole thing to go through with. The show revolves around an elite high school with super competitive students but also a high tech crazy conspiracy. I’m actually low-key obsessed.
  3. The Alienist (Season 1): Netflix actually recommended this show after I finished with The Mindhunter (mind blowing af). The show is a psychological thriller about a serial killer and studying him and I’m so excited. I can’t seem to get enough of the genre.
  4. Spiderman: Homecoming: Yes, I haven’t watched. Yes, I plan to really, really soon. Its fair to say that I’m already a huge fan of Tom Holland and his adorable little face.
  5. Omertá: Omertá’s a Hindi movie based on Pakistani terrorist Omar Saeed Sheik, the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks played by one of my absolute favourites – Rajkumar Rao. I was really looking forward to watching the movie on the big screen but dam you exams!

Riverdale Did What?

Riverdale’s season 2 aired its mid-season finale this past week, and I just have one thing to say to people who still haven’t seen it and are really excited to watch it – Its not worth it.

After hyping up the whole season and getting the viewers to expect a ton of crazy shit happening in every episode, the winter finale really drops a notch and ends up being quite a disappointing end to the year.

Spoilers!
The biggest and the most disappointing spoiler is in fact the identity of the black hood. The black hood turns out to be the school janitor, Mr. Svenson when unmasked by Sheriff Keller after Betty and Archie chase him down a graveyard. This makes no sense and actually kills the whole mystery of the killer.
Further, Betty and Archie kiss! (Really weird and creepy and not acceptable) – but thats actually all okay as Archie and Veronica get back together over Christmas and Veronica admits she also loves him (awwwwwww)

With the episode being really terrible and really boring, the only good thing that comes out of the episode is that Jughead motivates all the young serpents (including Sweet Pea) to go after Penny Peabody and driving her out of the city just to save FP. Jughead is by far the real MVP of this show.

Riverdale returns in January, 2018 and hopefully debunks the really identity of the Black hood because the school janitor is totally unacceptable.

Arrow Season 5 Finale!

Spoilers of all kinds ahead! 

If you watched Episode No. 22 of Arrow’s season five, you would’ve desperately been waiting for the finale. I have two words for the finale: Worth it.
Arrow’s Season 5 finale starts with Oliver teaming up with Nyssa Al-Ghul, Malcom Merlyn and Slade Wilson (all kinds of ‘yesssssssss’ for that!) and flying over to Lian You to rescue practically everyone he’s ever loved.

Arrow’s little and superb team is up against Adrian Chase (who I LOVED till he turned full psycho), Black Siren, Evelyn, Taliaa Al-Ghul and then there’s the problem of Oliver’s cute little son being held hostage.

All, in all the episode is brilliant beyond words and much, much, much better than the Season 4 finale.

Everyone’s facing off against each other and I couldn’t get enough of Slade and Malcolm! The episode has various tear-worthy moments and for 90% of the episode you’re sitting and going crazy. The kickass finale ends with Oliver’s flashbacks coming back to a full circle as they show the first scene of the first episode of the first season as the last flashback scene.

The episode ends with no one knowing who’s alive other than Oliver and his son.
(If the writers have killed off Rene, Dinah, Slade, or Quentin I’m going to be really, really unhappy)

If you’ve never watched Arrow, this is the correct time to start!

13 Reasons Why;

There are two types of people currently reading this: People who’ve watched Thirteen Reasons Why and people who haven’t. If you fall in this later category, drop everything and watch it; right now.

Thirteen Reasons Why is an original netflix series based on Jay Asher’s novel of the same name published back in 2007 (if you haven’t read that either; READ IT!) The show is about Hannah Baker, a 17 year old girl who commits suicide and then leaves 13 tapes with 13 reasons recorded on them stating why she committed suicide.

If you have read the book, you would’ve been as excited as I was when you heard about this series – the book is brilliant, and the show would be as well. I watched the 13 episodes in 3 days and I cannot stop recommending it to everyone! The show is powerful and heartbreaking. It is 95% like the novel and is amazingly made into thirteen one-hour episodes that show you precisely why you should think twice before saying anything to anyone.

This show will make you cry. And make you cringe, and make you hate characters like you’ve never hated before, but it is most definitely a must-watch, and that novel always has been a must-read.

 

Daredevil Season 1 Finale!

Idk why I didn’t watch this before, but I finally managed to finish the first season of Netflix’s Daredevil (quite slowly though I admit)

Daredevil is based on the Marvel character created by Stan Lee and is about a blind lawyer who wears a mask and becomes a vigilante by night! Fucking great, right? This show is so much of superb and so much of fun and the fact that Daredevil’s played by a total hottie is a complete plus.

Charlie Cox plays Daredevil, his real name being Matt Murdock and the greatest parts of the show are when you get to see him shirtless :”)

 

heres-how-daredevil-star-charlie-cox-got-ripped-to-be-a-superhero

If this isn’t enough for you to watch the show, I don’t know what could be. Just look at the precious soul that he is.

The season is 13 episodes long and the finale had been jumping and hopping with happiness everywhere. It’ll make you cry at places and then also make you pump your fist in the air because Matt Murdock’s such a badass!
Rating: 8/10

Supernatural ‘Don’t Call Me Shurley’ Episode Review!

Yes, I’ve been updating way too much these days. BUT THIS EPISODE DESERVES A POST FOR THE REST OF IT’S LIFE!

I’m not even kidding when I say Supernatural’s Season 11 Episode 20 is the best episode the show has produced in years. In all honesty, when this season had started off, and I had reviewed the season premiere:(Go read it!), I had major doubts about the quality of this season. But, ‘Don’t Call Me Shurley’ puts those doubts straight out of your head 15 minutes into the episode!

SPOILERS! MAJOR, MAJOR SPOILERS!

The greatest surprise of the episode wasn’t that lovable writer Chuck revealed himself as God, honestly that had been a fan theory since Season 5’s Swan Song finale, and almost had been even admitted to by the writers. The greatest part about this episode was the fact that Chuck(GOD) and Metatron(former Angel and God’s best friend by far) bonded in such a superb way that you didn’t even realize you needed. The story very conveniently put Sam and Dean Winchester into the background for a while, and it was beautiful. God took centre stage with his funny, tragic and complex self and Rob Benedict delivered in all ways possible. Curtis Armstrong has Metatron redeemed himself fully and delivered by far the strongest monologue of any season ever where he finally managed to convince God to stop being grumpy and help his creation, humanity.

Towards the end of the episode where Metatron was convinced that his words did not have the desired affect on God, and all God was bothered about was his Autobiography that he wanted to write with the help of Metatron, the greatest and happiest part of the episode comes along: Chuck Shurley; God, gets up on stage, picks a guitar and Rob Benedict delivers a stellar performance of the song ‘Fare Thee Well’ and the episode finally takes a turn for good when Sam returns from near death, the popular Samulet is back in all it’s glory, and every single person who died in the episode comes back to life! Three Cheers for God! It’s a brilliant, brilliant episode, one that will be spoken about in years to come as the writers, directors, producers and the actors do a stellar job of providing the perfect antidote that this season of Supernatural needed.

I have never waited for any episode as I had waited for this one and the way it delivered, I was in legit happy tears at the end! And this is how this gem of an episode ended:

Kudos to Supernatural for providing the precise thrust we all needed! Desperately waiting for the next episode now!

Episode Rating: 10000/10, I cannot even describe my feelings!
