New Girl Season 7 Review

I can’t believe it’s over.

I’ve been watching New Girl since 2014 and now it’d done. No more episodes.

Even though the ending of season six could have been a series finale, I’m so glad they did these additional eight episodes.

It was fine revisiting these characters in a new light: since the last episode, three years have passed and Jess, Nick, Schmidt, Cece and Winston have changed: some of them got married, some of them had a child and they became different people.

I really enjoyed getting a glimpse of it and even though I’m sad it is over, I’m so happy with the way they ended it.

Zooey Deschanel and Hannah Simone in New Girl (2011)

From Ruth’s birthday party, preschool admission tests and godparents to Nick and Jess getting dog, then getting engaged and married.

They bring back to the show all the recurring characters, guest stars and old fan favourites. Watching these eight episodes is like going on a trip down to memory lane: you remember the good times, you remember the silly jokes and the embarrassing moments…

I really liked it.

And can we just take a moment to say how lovely and a Dora Ball and unbelievably cute Schmidt and Cece’s daughter Ruth is?! SHE IS SO FREAKING CUTE!

New Girl (2011)

The twins who play her are so little but their comedic timing and delivery were outstanding! They were so funny! One of the highlights of this season. Absolutely wonderful!

The one thing I was a bit upset about was the whole “blessing/asking the father permission” thing that drives me crazy every time I see it on television and IRL. COME ON! In other matters, they are very progressive. For example, Schmidt is a stay-at-home dad and takes care of his daughter while Cece goes to work. Why couldn’t they have just skipped Jess’ father’s permission? We will never know.

Zooey Deschanel, Max Greenfield, Hannah Simone, Lamorne Morris, and Jake Johnson in New Girl (2011)

I loved that, at the end, it was all a classic Winston prank and that Jess and Nick didn’t really have to move out of the loft. This made the episode and on a lighter and funnier note than it would’ve done without prank Sinatra’s comeback.


I have spent a lot of time watching “New Girl” and I think it will always hold a place in my heart. I watch it/listen to it all the time when I’m studying. I just put it in the background and it helps me concentrate.

Thank you for the laughter and the happy moments.

Goodbye!

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!

Suits Season 7A Finale Freakout (I know, I’m 4 months late)

Disclaimer! This post contains strong language and spoilers for all seasons of Suits.

It has been almost  four months since the “Suits” summer finale, and I am still not okay. I am baffled and at the same time over the moon about what happened in episode 710.

I’ve been very sceptical about this season, I was expecting something entirely different from the finale of season six, where we see Harvey and Donna holding hands at the end and Mike been finally accepted into the bar association. Although Jessica left of the show last season, she continued to appear throughout this 7A, and I couldn’t be more excited. I adore the whole cast, but she is truly magnificent. A badass black woman in power. I love her.

But without much further do… let’s talk about the thing every single person in the suits fandom is talking about: the kiss.

I was expecting something along the lines of this, since the title of the episode is “Donna”. I wasn’t ready for how amazing and mind-blowing it was.

And I thought they weren’t going to leave it in the last 30 seconds of the show but this is what they did. I waited the entire episode for something to happen between Harvey and Donna and it didn’t. The countdown for the following show had already begun and I was sure they weren’t going to show anything else but when Louis made that speech about him and Sheila, taking advantage of the opportunity and actually expressing his feelings for her, I knew something was going to happen.

Producer Aaron Korsh has always been sceptical about Donna and Harvey together as a couple he said multiple times, but I don’t care. The entire storyline with Dr Agard becoming Harvey’s girlfriend after being his therapist was just bullshit. Everybody knows it. But if this is what is necessary for Harvey to comprehend the extent of his feelings for Donna, I’m not complaining.

Well, I am complaining because it has ruined half a season, one of my favourite character’s personality, the awesomeness of the show which has become a joke and the overall vibe of the show. Am I angry? FUCK YEAH.

I don’t care (but I soooo do) what he has to go through to finally be in and happy relationship, but I believe he has to end up with Donna.

Mike said it in 613 with this amazing exchange:

Risultati immagini per suits mike harvey "we also need to make sure you don't"

COME ON!!!!

There are fantastic episodes such as “the other time”, and multiple others where you see the deep affection that Harvey has for Donna and vice versa.

Before, when she was the secretary, them being together it didn’t make a lot of sense because there was still this disparity.

Now she is COO of Pearson Specter Litt, she makes decisions about the firm and she counts as much as Harvey and Louis. They are equals. He’s not her boss any more, she’s not his secretary. They have a shot of being together in a Jane Eyre sort of thing.

I’ve heard stupid comments and theories about sexual harassment, Donna kissing Harvey without his consent and some bullshit like that. To the people wandering around telling this bullshit I say one thing. Fuck off. You don’t deserve Suits.

Now I’m just waiting for the announcement of 7B and they’re taking their sweet time!

If you haven’t been living under a rock, you probably know that Meghan Markle is engaged with Prince Harry and therefore leaving the show. The network announced her departure but they still haven’t said anything about the premiere date of 7B.

Also, still no word on whether Patrick J Adams is leaving as well and if there will be a season 8.

Please, USA Network. Don’t leave us hanging. TELL US SOMETHING.

I leave you with the gif of the kiss because it’s AMAZING.

You’re welcome.
