Recap/Review – The Vampire Diaries – “Ghost World” – 10/27/11

So I guess that vampires, witches, and werewolves aren’t enough for Mystic Falls. Let’s fill it with ghosts, too! Big surprise, since people seem to die there every day. This time, it’s actually not Elena’s fault. The ghosts, both good and bad, have crossed the border because Bonnie brought Jeremy back from the dead, thus destroying nature’s balance. Good job, Bonnie! You saved the boy you love, and he doesn’t seem to love witches anymore! Jeremy’s kissing ghosts now! Well, just one: Anna. Ever notice that many characters on The Vampire Diaries forget to show their gratitude for having their lives saved? Maybe it’s something in the water!

Recap/Review – Supernatural – “Shut Up, Dr. Phil” – 10/21/11

All right, fans, I think Supernatural is back in business! The past two episodes had me a little worried, even though I am a very big fan of this series. I love the show so much, and I want new viewers to catch the beginning of an episode and be unable to change the channel because it is so good. Well, this beginning was definitely one to hook a new audience!

In the opening scene, we are at an upscale salon, with your typical spoiled, blonde, baby boomer. Big shocker, she’s getting her roots touched up and needs to sit under one of the dryers to process her foils. Apparently, it’s not very good to heat your head up, because the machine starts to go in overdrive as she struggles to get out from under the dryer! Basically, whatever brain cells she had left are getting fried, while the rest of the patrons are at the front of the salon getting beautiful. When the stylist comes to remove the dryer, he sees the smoke and lifts the lid. She is obviously dead, as her head flops to the side, looking like a bad science project. Wait, it gets better. The stylist has a look of shocked terror and begins to scream like a school girl. Awesome! I guess I’m sick, because I made my husband watch it, and we both laughed at that part.

Recap/Review – The Vampire Diaries – “Smells Like Teen Spirit” – 10/20/11

Well, I don’t know about everyone else, but I think this season of The Vampire Diaries is shaping up to be the best one yet! They just keep on going at such a high pace that you still feel as though you are watching the season opener. The adrenaline levels are so high that it’s like riding your favourite roller coaster, and this season is one ride I definitely never want to get off of!

So, first day of school for our gang of teenagers, and as usual, there are surprises to be had. First of all, Stefan shows up as, guess what? A student, of course! I didn’t think “The Ripper” would be interested in getting an education, and surprise, he’s not. Stefan lets Elena know that he is there to keep an eye on her for Klaus, as she is basically a blood bag. Remember, it was Elena’s blood that helped Klaus create his first successful hybrid, Tyler Lockwood (Michael Trevino). Also, there is a brand new student in class. Any ideas who it might be? Why, it’s Rebecca, of course! What a history class it’s going to be with so many monsters in one class. Poor Alaric is going to have his hands filled with this group!

Recap/Review – Supernatural – “The Girl Next Door” – 10/7/11

Well, fans, we are now into the third episode of season seven, and thankfully it was a slower one. Not to say it wasn’t great, because it was! I mean, first of all, it was directed by Jensen Ackles, and second, it gave us glimpses into Sam’s life as a teenager. All in all, it was an informative Supernatural, as it sets up emotions and circumstances for future episodes.

We begin with Dean in a hospital bed, as Bobby bursts in the door with a suit on. Where did Bobby get a suit from, and where did Bobby come from? Anyway, Bobby is there to get the boys the hell out of that hospital, because Mr. Sexy works there, and I’m thinking they might want to stay alive.

Cut to three weeks later, where Bobby and the brothers are living in Whitefish, Montana. Dean is acting like a chick on the sofa watching foreign soaps (and loving, it I might add!), calling Sam two-legs, and sending him out for pie and food. Sam, as the dutiful brother, goes to the store, and as he paying, he notices the local paper. The headline of the paper reads, “Ice Pick Killer Strikes Again,” and it’s words trigger a reaction in Sam.

Recap/Review – The Vampire Diaries – “Disturbing Behavior” – 10/6/11

Where can you see werewolves, witches, vampires, ghosts, and a gay daddy who tortures his vampire daughter because she’s different? I’ll tell you where. The CW’s smash hit The Vampire Diaries! If you want to hear all about the latest juicy instalment, then read on…

We begin as Stefan ducks out of a boring shopping trip with Rebecca and Klaus to get some fresh air. It seems that all males, even those of the vampire variety, hate shopping! Anyway, Stefan sees Catharine on the street and is secretly beckoned over. She wants to know what Stefan’s big plan is and tells him she is aware of the fact that Elena has Rebecca’s necklace. They bicker back and forth in their familiar way, with Stefan revealing nothing before he walks off.
