Pretty Little Liars – Season 7 Episode 13 – “Hold Your Piece” – REVIEW

ATTENTION! This review contains some strong language and (obviously) spoilers from the latest Pretty Little Liars episode. You have been warned!

[Present Me Writing:] I have posted the review for ep 12 a couple of minutes ago and as I was about to pick up my Uni book I decided to edit this review and post it. Otherwise in 2018 it will still be in the drafts secton. So…. Here is what I wrote a couple of weeks ago! Sorry again for the delay! I will explain in a future entry! Enjoy!


I’m back with episode 13! This one was a goody… I yelled at the TV more than once. I predicted almost everything that happened. I love this show so much!

The episode begins with the cell phone from A.D.’s board game waking up Spencer because it’s crying. Yes, the phone is crying like a baby.

Then the authors of the show tried to make us care about Toby’s fiancée. Don’t worry: nobody does.
The fiancée (whose name I don’t really remember but I think it’s Yvonne) still has a perfect manicure after a car crash. PERFECT, I tell ya. This drives me crazy every single fucking time. Oh, and she’s awake from the coma. Still: who cares!!!

There’s also this think that bothers me: Spencer and the cop’s non-existent sexual tension is literally non-existent. NOTHING. WHY? Authors? WHY?

But my favourite part of the episode was the Hannah Doll. HILARIOUS! Hats off to the genius who thought about this insane thing. It’s so bad it’s amazing.

Caleb and Hannah are so smart that they bring it into the house?! 😂  COME ON!!! And the line: “Please see the appendix”: WHAT OTHER APPENDIX DID YOU THINK WE WERE TALKING ABOUT?! Hannah looked in the appendixes of the books she owned. WAKE UP, PEOPLE!!! I guess it as soon as the doll said it!!! It’s fucking obvious!

And then the cop shows up again! JUST GO AWAY. That policeman (don’t remember his name ’cause I hate him) with the ping pong table. Really really boring!!!!!!!!!! I don’t care about his sad childhood!!!!!!!

[This is another fucking filler episode and I’m bored!]  Inner thoughts came through. I’m sorry. I was soooo bored.

Apparently, Toby’s fiancée wasn’t apparently his fiancée yet… Since he asked her to get married in this episode… I’m confused. Mostly because I’ve skipped the parts where they were involved. *wink wink*

Aria and Emily following the girl that looks like Jenna (SIDNEY! HER NAME IS SIDNEY!) is useless. (probably the most used adjective in these two episodes…)

But then Hannah cuts open the doll only to find a kimono that she has to wear to a meeting with Japanese investors. A.D. is pulling the racism card… I kind of feel bad for Hannah… 2017-05-10 (6).png

Then after some threats and other shit, there is a VERY awkward moment between Spencer and Caleb. Remember, they “dated” for a while. EW. Why they paired them together, I really don’t understand. Another favourite part was Caleb when got sprayed by the board game! WHY? JUST… WHY?

In the middle of nowhere, there is choir singing. What’s with the church music?! But of course, it’s for the happy nuptials! Toby actually got married to Yvonne!!!!

And I was so naive… I asked myself: “what if she dies?” followed a second later by: “she is soooooo going to die”. AND YES!!!  I predicted it!! She is dead!! I don’t mean to sound so happy, but it’s a character on a TV show, I hate her and… I KNEW IT! I WIN!

but after this joyous moment, I came to a realization and I askled myself: Is anyone else wondering where the fuck Ezra is?
Was the actor busy? Did they really think that this whole Nicole thing was plausible?!
Then Nicole is hiding in Ezra’s apartment?! WTF. WHY? WHY?

Before writing this, I thought this episode was me

Before writing this, I thought this episode was meaningless, but now I already have three favourite scenes. And the third one is the last one: the policed gets a severed finger in the mail… I LOVED THIS. LOVED LOVED LOVED. It was the most cliché thing ever and of course, they had to include it. AMAZING.




I hope the reviews aren’t too long for you. I have to comment on everything and this show is so ridiculous sometimes. I hadn’t read this review for some time and seeing it now made me realize about something I need to work on so I can get better… But you don’t really care about this. I’m just ranting. I’ll stop.

I hope you enjoyed this post and that I didn’t bore you to death. Let me know your thoughts on the episode. I write these posts so I can vent about stuff and I’d really love to engage in a conversation.

LOVE,

Georgia

Pretty Little Liars – Season 7 Episode 12 – “These Boots Are Made For Stalking”

ATTENTION! This review contains some strong language and (obviously) spoilers from the latest Pretty Little Liars episode. You have been warned!

So…. I’ve been terribly busy (Uni, my driver’s license and tutoring… I’m so sleep deprived) and reviewing an episode takes time. I’m sorry for the delay!

NOTHING HAPPENED IN THIS EPISODE. NOTHING.

What are the producers thinking? There are only a handful of episodes left and they are dragging this shit for miles!!!

it’s been a lot of weeks since episode 12, so I’ve had to skip through it AGAIN and it was painful. Let’s break it down (almost) character per character:

SPENCER:

Spencer existential crisis only remotely interesting thing that has happened here. I’m sorry about her screwed-up family and this situation is ridiculous, but at least there were some real emotions involved. Her stubbornness in finding her birth mother is totally legitimate.

2017-05-10.png

BTW to be perfectly candid, dear Spencer… DITCH THE COP! Such a useless and boring character! What is his purpose in life?!

One of the lines that made me laugh the most was Spencer saying: “Lock her up” to the cop guy because she wanted to get rid of Jenna Marshall. I kid you not, the first thing that came to my mind was when Donald Trump said it referring to Hillary Clinton. I pictured Spencer with a blond wig, power-red tie and fake tan yelling in front of a crowd of racists.

EMILY / ALLISON / PAIGE

The mini-Alison student called Addison. To quote Alanis Morrissette: “Isn’t it ironic??!” COME ON! IT IS RIDICULOUS!! SO BORING…

And of course, she works with Jenna Fucking Marshall. And she impossibly appears everywhere? Does she teleport to places? How the fuck does she do that?!!?

HANNAH

And what about Hannah’s dress? It’s ugly. Like, really ugly. The white version not so much but the other is definitely not my taste.

2017-05-10 (1).png

By the way, Caleb comes back and he delivers the fakest dramatic lines of the episode. Something along the lines of “Jenna, go the fuck away. I’m the smart tech guy and I’m threatening you.” Caleb, please… Get a better hair style and better facial hair. Also, go play with your hacking devices thing-ys and stop making empty threats. Thank you!

And Mona making the “Mona Lisa having a perm” joke was just…. No.

ARIA

Where the fuck is Ezra? No seriously. Where is he? Why isn’t he here? Why did they resuscitate Nicole? It is just one more useless thing they decided to add into the show. Just to fill in the 42 minutes. Ew.

2017-05-10 (3).png

And who the hell is this cook guy? He has been back for two episodes and I have seriously never seen him before. And it is so fucking obvious that he is into her. He is asking Aria if Ezra is the only person who said “I love you” to her… Mind your business, man!

I sympathize with Aria, she is struggling with her relationship with Ezra and frankly, he is being a dick…


I was kind of disappointed with the episode. Boring. Meaningless. Useless. Meh.

Nevertheless, I enjoyed it! I might sound over-critical, but I love it!!! Like every single episode of PLL.

Love,

Georgia 🙂

 

 

 

 

Pretty Little Liars – Spring Premiere 2017 – Season 7 episode 11 – “Playtime” Review

ATTENTION! This review contains some strong language and (obviously) spoilers from the latest Pretty Little Liars episode. You have been warned!

I have reviewed a couple of episodes (ep 8, ep 9 and ep 10) of the latest season of Pretty Little Liars and I had so much fun. This show unloads so much stuff on one single episode. It’s unbelievable.

Pretty Little Liars

I have been waiting for a long time for the show to come back and finally, I can get back into the trash. If you’ve read my other posts, you know that I heavily trash the show, even though I adore it. It’s so teen-angst. To get back into the show and to refresh my memory, I re-watched some of the old episodes, just to remind myself of all the nonsense that happened.

And it’s been great. To quickly recap: Noel Kahn was working with A.D, he is psychotic and got beheaded by an ax (which was stuck on the floor), Jenna pointed a gun at the girls and started shooting around. (Need I remind you that she is blind?), someone shot Spencer but as Jenna was about to pull the trigger on Spencer, Mary Drake knocked her over and while someone dragged away an unconscious Jenna, Mary revealed that SHE was Spencer’s mother. And happy with all this tragedy, the creators decided that Toby and his fianceé (whose name eludes me) had to get into a really bad car crash.

AND, in the last few seconds, it is revealed that Jenna didn’t know A.D. and wasn’t working for them. But now she is trapped (presumably) in a van with him/her.

And bear in mind that this happened in the last 10 minutes. SO MUCH INFORMATION TO GO THROUGH!

But it’s been almost a year since this episode…. Let’s not waste more time and let’s dive into it. The following things that you will read were written while watching the episode, so it’s my genuine reaction to all the SHIT that happened.

Right in the first two minutes the amount of information is ridiculous. Yvonne (that’s the name of Toby’s fiancée!!!) is in a medically induced coma, the liars find out about Toby and said something about Mary Drake. What I don’t know. It was so fast!

Also, Ezra comes back! In the last episode, his previous girlfriend and girl he wrote his book about, came back to life. Yes. THAT HAPPENED.

Hannah pinching Caleb to “check that he is real.”  *eye roll* COME ON. The entire conversation was a cheesy sentence after another. I wanted to puke.

Can we just talk for a minute about the fact that Alison is a teacher now? It’s absurd.

PRESENT TIME!


Hannah:“Did you talk about the wedding?”

Aria: “No, we didn’t.”

IT WAS THE ONLY THING YOU HAD TO TALK TO HIM ABOUT!!!!


This whole Spencer/Cop thing is just stupid. Why is he even here? What is his point?!? So annoying.

And as you can see on the right…. Who the fuck is this guy? Holden? Where are you coming from? What’s the point of you? Meaningless people seem to be the theme of this entire episode.


It seems that for once, Veronica told Spencer the truth! Mr. Hastings had another illegitimate child! This time with Mary. But he thought she was Jessica? And Mary was in the asylum so Veronica took the baby in and adopted her as her daughter. I feel so bad for Spencer. It was completely absurd, but I really felt sorry for her.

So after her meltdown and her mother’s confession, she decided to play A.D.’s game and went to see Toby. And had an emotional heart to heart. Blah blah blah.

Then some shit with Mona and Hannah and a Senator’s daughter.  *eye roll*

Sometimes these subplots are so boring and at the same time better than any shit the show can make up. Just like this tension between Emily, Paige and Alison. I don’t really care. And it’s getting pathetic.

Anyway, as Hannah prepares to stab the game A.D. sent them, a video appears on the screen. It’s them, digging up Alison’s husband.

And as the final scene, we see Jenna asking questions to someone off camera. Obviously A.D. She says “End Game” and…. that’s the episode.



Frankly, I expected more. I was all in for a ridiculous episode like the summer finale but this one wasn’t as much fun. I liked it, don’t get me wrong. It was cheesy, stupid, ridiculous, annoying (like Ezra and fucking Nicole… COME ON!) and magnificent.

I’ll definitely try to review episode after episode until the very end, but I’m starting to live again and I’m getting slightly better and I don’t know how much time I’ll actually have 😦

Let me know if you liked the episode and your thoughts on it. I’d love to discuss it with you! BYE!

Pretty Little Liars Summer Finale 2016 – Season 07 episode 10 – “The Darkest Knight” Review

ATTENTION! This review contains some strong language and (obviously) spoilers from the latest Pretty Little Liars episode. You have been warned!

I avoided Twitter for as long as I could. I hid the App in a “Utility” folder I never open and tried to forget about it.

Before I review this episode and make it the biggest thing ever, I need to make something clear. I love Pretty Little Liars because it is an “easy” tv show. Although there are powerful elements (that I will talk about in one of my future posts) to the show, it does not have the depth of series like Game of Thrones or True Detective.

It is a series that I personally watch to have fun and get into the lives of five teenager with complicated romances with perfect hair and makeup.

But this episode is something else. I have NEVER had this much fun while watching a PLL episode. I laughed out loud for ages. The following things that you will read were written whilst watching the episode, so it’s my genuine reaction to all the SHIT that happened.

PLL s07e10

Let’s begin right away with  brainstorming session with all the liars (minus Hannah) and Mona and Caleb which I think was shot so that they could introduce back Mona and call 911 to say they thought Hannah had been abducted.

PLL s07e10

Hannah is still keeping Noel Khan captive and she pull out a knife to torture him… A scene that I found a bit extreme and ridiculous… But comparing this with the shit that it is about to go down, is really nothing . One thing I have noticed, though: she is still fashionable and has ripped jeans on. Because STYLE is what’s important while torturing someone.

So she cut him and goes to DNA lab with Noel’s blood to prove that he is Mary Drake’s son. AND she calls Mona to help her! And she actually does help her! She finds the famous flash drive, but Hannah isn’t happy with that! She wants to frame Noel for everything that he did to her.

PLL s07e10

So she decides to come back! And since the show is called “Pretty Little Liars”, she lies to everyone. Both the police and her friends.

Caleb takes her home and then at one point there is the whole “I know you better than yourself” speech and he says and I quote: “You won’t admit that we’re meant to spend the rest of our lives together.”

And there is kissing and sex.

I am happy that they are back together, because I have to admit… They were my favourite couple! And I found the Caleb/Spener thing disgusting.

They leave Hannah and Caleb to have sex and they go to Alison’s house.

PLL s07e10

And after a few moments she announces that SHE IS PREGNANT!!! WHAAT!?! I had the feeling she was pregnant… So… I told you so.    🙂

And she kisses Emily. A few times.

The other liar that has problems is ARIA! Ezra is still in colombia and he is coming back! BUT NOT REALLY!!! BECAUSE NICOLE IS ALIVE!!! I KNEW IT. I KNEW IT! I SAID SO!

PLL s07e10

I felt sorry for Aria… Come on, her fiancé kissing another woman on national television. It’s funny and the same time depressing.

And the detective starts hitting on Spencer… Again. I’m like: I don’t even care anymore.

PLL s07e10

But the morning she goes to see Toby and she brings him a book in french and says some shit about love. And then…

Oh Honey GIF

 

Ok. This is one of my favourite things… She asks him if she can kiss him… I laughed so much and said “Oh Honey!” a bunch of time, How I Met Your Mother style.

 

Spencer isn’t the only one with an eventful morning. There is some tension between Emily-Alison-Paige.

PLL s07e10

Also, Emily is like “I woke up like this” Beyoncé style… SO ANNOYING.

Anyway, the tests come back and Noel isn’t Mary Drake’s child!! Surprise surprise! I feel like with all of this relationship stuff, the secret child’s identity is meaningless.

They decide to go question Noel and they somehow manage to sneak away from the cops leaving a recording of them talking so they won’t get suspicious. After 7 seasons, we know the Rosewood police force is basically shit, but COME ON!!

And Noel has escaped! Obviously.

PLL s07e10

And Caleb and Mona were fooled by another girl pretending to be Jenna! SHE GOT AWAY!!

And as soon as they arrive to the place A.D. told them to when he/she texted them, who do they see? MARY FLIPPING DRAKE!

And there are speakers around the house! So Jenna can talk to them! So obviously they go upstairs and find weird typical “I’m a serial killer” stuff but Emily left the phone up there! COME ON!

Oh, and then the psychotic version of Noel Khan appears together with Jenna! And she has a gun!

PLL s07e10

But Emily and Hannah hit Noel and he falls unto his weapon and his head gets cut off from his body. AHAHAHAHAHA. COME ON!! IT WAS RIDICULOUS!

With Spencer “Can I kiss you?”, this was definitely the highlight of the episode.

BUT Jenna finds them and pulls the trigger, hitting Spencer on the chest.

PLL s07e10

Fortunately, Jenna gets tackled by Mary Drake and just after a few seconds after the other girls arrived, she tells Spencer that SHE is actually her mother. AAHAAHAHAHAAHAH. SPENCER IS MARY DRAKE’S SECOND SECRET CHILD!

And in the next scene we find out that Toby and Yvonne had a car crash!! COME ON!!!! HOW IS THIS EVEN POSSIBLE!?!?!

As final scene, we see Jenna on the floor and she asks some unknown person if they shot Spencer. Does that mean that Jenna didn’t shoot her? WHAT? I’m so confused…

2016-08-31 (16).png

Anyway, I had so much fun watching this. HILARIOUS!!!!

I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen on 7B… From what I have heard, the series will return on April 2017 and I am super sad about it. ALMOST A WHOLE YEAR!

Nevermind, I hope you had some fun reading this. If you have seen the episode, let me know what you think about it in the comments.
