Suits – s07 ep 16 – “Goodbye” – Review SEASON FINALE

I’ve just posted mt review of the previous episode and I’m ready to, quoting Brooklyn99’s own Charles Boyle: “UNLEASH THE BEAST“.

I. Am. Pissed.

This finale was so disappointing. It was bad. Like, real bad.

Two major characters are leaving the show, Meghan will never be able to reprise her role as Rachel because she is becoming a Duchess. In England. In less than month.

Patrick could come back for a short cameo and I’d be so incredibly happy to see him again… but he has officially left the show.

Anyway, this won’t be a long post. You can sum up what happened in 2 lines.

Jessica tries to connect with her estranged family in Chicago while trying to fight people who are set on destroying her. They save the firm. Mike and Rachel get married.

THAT’S IT.

And I’m not joking.

A pullet point list of stuff that I noticed/found somewhat interesting:

  • Jessica looks so cool and perfect and I love her
  • Jeff Malone
  • Dante from Homeland was the Mayor of Chicago
  • Mike and Rachel win their lawsuit
  • Harvey & Co save the firm from former senior partner Gordon
  • Apparently they are merging with Robert Zane? Not really sure. I was bored.
  • Choosing a cover of John Legend’s “All of Me” as soundtrack for the vows was so unoriginal and trashy that it made me want to barf. (I’m always super classy)

They basically aired the pilot for Jessica’s spin-off instead of doing an actual finale and celebrating Mike and Rachel’s history at the firm and on the show. So disappointing.

Sure, there were adorable moments like the one between Rachel and Donna.

And obviously the wedding!!!

I was not a fan of the vows. There was no originality, they were ordinary and stupid. They reduced Rachel as “the wife” and it made me sad. She is a strong and badass woman and she was treated lie garbage this season.

I MEAN!!!!! LOOK AT THEM.

A bullshit episode for a bullshit finale for a bullshit season.

They have already put out a promo for season 8, airing his July, and even though I know I’ll be watching… It made me sad.

I’m not keen on having Katherine Heigl on board. I’m much more excited about Katrina (Amanda Schull) and Alex (Dulé Hill), who mysteriously disappeared and then came out of nowhere in the last episode.

What is happening on this show?

Nevermind. My only hope is that Harvey and Donna will finally get together and be a power couple.

WE

NEED

DARVEY.


See? I even managed to contain almost contain my anger towards the producers, show runners or whoever takes decisions in that place.

I am almost positive I didn’t even swear once!!

What do you think about it? Do you agree with me? Are you happy with the finale? Will you be watching the next season?

Tweet at me @georgiasblog1

See you again in July!

Suits – s07 ep 15 – “Tiny Violin” – Review SEASON FINALE

In the immortal lyrics of Adele’s song “Skyfall”:

This is the end…

It really is the end. The end of the Suits era. The last time all six original characters will be together.

Meghan Markle is becoming a Duchess so it’s impossible she’ll be able to even make an appearance in future episodes. Patrick J Adams might be coming back. Maybe just for a brief cameo. At least I hope so.

So we came to the end of this great journey that started, for me, in 2013. I’m terribly sad to see Rachel and Mike leave. The show won’t be the same without them, but I’m so glad they got the happy ending they deserved.

Enough nostalgia, let’s get into it!


Well, wasn’t it disappointing…

So basically an old senior partner wants back in. If he manages to do so, he would vote Harvey, Louis and everyone else out, taking control over everything.

Louis

He tries to fight the old partner and yadi yadi. He doesn’t really have an important storyline in the episode.

Harvey

He is trying his best to argue against the suit the former senior partner is throwing at him. He does the usual Harvey-stuff: barges into people’s offices, holds envelopes he then throws on the desk, he threatens people while looking amazing…

But he also goes to visit Scottie! The fact that she is back made me roll my eyes so bad. WHY IS THE BACK AND TRYING TO FLIRT WITH HARVEY?

She didn’t even react that he went out with his former therapist! She asked him if he had fixed himself. Really, girl? And then she asked about Donna.

EVEN SCOTTIE KNOWS THEY SHOULD BE TOGETHER

On top of that, he figures out Robert Zane’s partners are planning to kick him out of the firm and stab him in the back. I felt sorry for him.

Harvey and Donna

It’s driving me nuts. All this pretend friendship is making me so mad.

“It was nice just to hang out and enjoy each other’s company.”

And apparently things are now back to normal. ARGHHH!!!!!

Mike

Mike wants to help fund the Clinic he works for part-time: they are in the middle of a lawsuit against a company that caused children to get lead poisoning.

They don’t have the resources to keep fighting and Mike tries his best to help them. In the meantime he gets a job offer: running a law firm that takes on big companies who mistreat people and break the law. A job for him and Rachel.

Perfect scapegoat so that Mike and Rachel’s exit from the show is smooth.

For the rest of the episode, it’s Mike fighting the big corporate for the little guys…

You go Mike! A man with a conscience, morals and a heart.

Jessica

Uh! Jessica is back! She asks Harvey to help her with a problem she has in Chicago about housing and whatever…

I love her but I’m super pissed because they spent too much time on her and not enough time saying goodbye to Mike and Rachel who are LEAVING THE SHOW.

THEY WON’T EVER COME BACK.

PATRICK MIGHT. BUT MEGHAN CAN’T. BECAUSE SHE’LL BE A DUCHESS IN ENGLAND.

I’M SO DISAPPOINTED.


Anyway, I need to contain some of my anger and pour it into the next post. Stay tuned ’cause I’m hella pissed off and I need to vent.

I would like to know your thoughts. Did you like the episode? Were you expecting something different? Let me know! Either here or on Twitter! My handle is @georgiasblog1!

Brooklyn Nine-Nine – s05 ep 18 – “Gray Star Mutual” – Review

I’ve just posted last week’s episode review but this time, I’m on time!!!

I loooooooved this episode! It was fun, crazy, adorable and overall great. The last two episodes were as perfect as the rest of the entire show, but I think they were necessary to establish more of the plot that is going to unravel in the season finale.

BOOM BOOM!!!

Let’s get started!

  • COLD OPEN

Whenever Charles’ tough personality comes out, it’s always hilarious and somehow disturbing. Here he is trying to secure a parking spot for his food truck and the drive to get there leaves Jake screaming for ages.

AMAZING.

  • PIMENTO IS BACK!!!!!!

I love Adrian. He is so funny, crazy and I was so sad he and Rosa broke up at the beginning of season 5. Literally devastated. I loooooooooooved him.

So I knew that the episode was going to be amazing. Now he investigates insurance fraud cases and he is as completely unhinged as always.

  • Amy in a wedding dress being a badass!

I looooved the stunts! Melissa Fumero (Amy) was amazing! She looked so dope and badass!

And the message! She talks about how difficult it is to be a woman in a position of power, having to work twice as hard to get the respect of her colleagues and trying not to show how excited she is about going wedding dress shopping.

Women can like “girly” stuff while being strong, powerful and super badass.

I LOVE THIS SHOW AND THE MANY MANY MANY MANY POSITIVE MESSAGES!!!!

#feminism #mermaiddress

P.S. Check out the behind-the-scenes stunts from Stephanie Beatriz’s instastories:

  • Captain Holt’s Twitter Account

It exists. They actually made it and it’s amazing.

  • Cheddar in a beret

He is now insta-famous with 14 thousand followers. ADORABLE.

  • Amy and Rosa

“While wearing a wedding dress, you leapt over a couch, sprinted down an alley and jumped off a car to beat the crap out of some perp like you were Wonder Woman”

“I guess it was pretty cool, wasn’t it?”

“Amy, you are an amazing cop and a great leader and you have proven that a billion times over. You can’t let other people’s opinions get in the way of what you want. Especially because other people suck.

I’M LIVING FOR THIS!

WOMEN SUPPORTING EACH OTHER!!!

WOOOO!!!


What a great episode!!! And next week it’s all about Jake and Amy’s bachelor and bachelorette party!!! I legit can’t wait!!! SO EXCITED!

Like I said in my last post, please, tweet at “@FOXTV” and use the hashtags “#RenewB99”, “RenewBrooklyn99” and “RenewBrooklynNineNine”. We all need a 6th season and if enough people politely demand it, it is more likely to happen.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine – s05 ep 17 – “DFW” – Review

Two episodes in one day! What a blessing! I reviewed the previous episode and all the new ones that came out this year, on top of my “Brooklyn Nine-Nine Week”, 7 posts in 7 days about this wonderful show.

Without much further ado, let’s get into the episode!

  • BEST COLD OPEN EVER

  • Nasim Pedrad

You might know her from “SNL” and Aly on “New Girl”, but here she plays Jake’s half-sister Katie and she is a mess!

She puts glass in her food and blames it on the waiter so she doesn’t have to pay for her meal, her boyfriend is Sewage Joe from “Parks and Recreation”, which was so fun and hilarious to see him again!

  • Domestic!Peraltiago

Seen Jake and Amy in their apartment, in their bedroom and interacting with each other outside of work was definitely the highlight of the episodes! They were so cute!

At one point, Amy even takes out of the fridge and orange soda can for her and it made me think of the “mattress” episode in season 3 in which they fight about that Orangina and Orange Soda.

SO.

ADORABLE.

  • Charles and Captain Holt doing yoga

  • Hitchcock and Scully

BEST FRIENDSHIP IN THE WORLD I LOVE THEM.

  • Gina’s Holt-Soundboard

  • Rosa’s Girlfriend

WHERE IS GINA RODRIGUEZ?

I saw a picture of her and Chelsea Peretti (Gina) and Terry Crews (Terry) on the set and this lead me to believe she was guest starring!!! When Rosa came out she said she’d love to be a part of the show and I thought the piture proved it!!

PLEASE LET HER BE ROSA’S DATE FOR JAKE AND AMY’S WEDDING!!!!


Like I said in my last post, please, tweet at “@FOXTV” and use the hashtags “#RenewB99”, “RenewBrooklyn99” and “RenewBrooklynNineNine”. We all need a 6th season and if enough people politely demand it, it is more likely to happen.
