Random Rambling: Beauty & The Beast, Tomorrowland, and The Muppets

Beauty & The Beast I have a problem, a very serious problem. It has come to my attention that Disney is currently in the process of translating a good portion of their beloved animated classics into live-action films. Jungle Book. Dumbo (Seriously?). Mulan. Pinocchio. Winnie the Pooh. Tinkerbell.  I may be a die-hard Disney nerd, but…

I Can Quote That! – The Big Bang Theory Edition

I think I have a problem. In fact, I know I have a problem. I just can’t stop quoting The Big Bang Theory. Morning. Noon. Night. It doesn’t matter what time or where I am, I’m always quote-ready. Penny: What’s he doing now? Leonard: Well, he’s either isolating the terms of his formula and examining…

Breaking Up Is Hard to Do

For Doctor Who fans, welcoming a new Doctor is like a rite of passage. In the days following the Doctor’s announcement of departure, you become overly emotional, sad to the point where you’re consistently contemplating and succeeding in writing long-form Facebook posts declaring your everlasting, incomparable love for the British actor and his portrayal. After…

First Impressions: Orphan Black

Identity Theft Addictive. Award winning. Absolutely fantastic. A must watch. These are all words that have been, in recent weeks, associated with season one of BBC America’s hit, Orphan Black. It’s everywhere you go, in every conversation you have. It’s quite impossible to avoid. I guarantee someone, somewhere is saying: Have you seen it? Oh,…

Dreaming With the Television On

He waited until the opportune moment to step out of the bright blue box, cautiously examining the surrounding thingamabobs and thingamajigs, before extracting the sonic screwdriver from his top left pocket. The mechanism was his favorite little watchamacallit and proved to be the most reliable. At least, most of the time. Curiously, it seemed to…

TV Rewind: The Vampire Diaries – “Graduation”

Hard to Say Goodbye My Love Honestly, I woke up yesterday morning prepared to breakup with TVD. Now, I’m not so sure. I’ll admit, last night’s season finale was far from extraordinary, but it did remind me of why I loved the show in the first place. It had one of my favorite Klaus moments….

TV Rewind: The Vampire Diaries – The Walking Dead

With a Little Help From My Friends NEWS ALERT! Kim the FanGirl will not be making an opening statement this week. Officials say the omission has been caused by recent events involving History teachers, hunters, and long-awaited cliffhangers. Stand by for your regularly scheduled programing. You’ve been warned. This is a SPOILER ALERT. With gradation…

TV Rewind: The Vampire Diaries – “She’s Come Undone”

The Girl That I Loved What can I say? My apologies for the delay. It was a long, very tiring weekend. Damon and Stefan barely let me get any sleep the entire time. They wouldn’t stop! They just kept going and going. I’m exhausted. They’ve got some mad skills, though. Luckily, I’m a tough cookie….

TV Worth Watching: Downton Abbey

Upstairs, Downstairs British dramas. Could there be anything better? Well, actually, now that I think about it, there is one thing better than an hour-long British drama. A period drama, hour-long, British. Speaking as someone who has a rather dominate addiction to them, I can assure you, I am in the right. Think about it….

TV Rewind: The Vampire Diaries – “The Originals”

It’s Good to Be the King Confused. Even after hours of contemplation and reexamination, I still feel confused. Truthfully, I had been thrilled and optimistic about a weekly hour-long drama dedicated to Joseph Morgan and his signature smirk. Not to mention, Elijah “Suit Up” Mikaelson. I’m sure we all were and still are. At this…
