SKAM: My Shameless Love Letter

  Shameless, get it? Because Skam means shame? Anyway, now that we’ve established just how not funny I am, let’s start this post. I’m sure it will be long enough without my bad puns. A little back story I guess: I am Norwegian but I have for the last four years been living in London…

Teen Wolf

I have been meaning to write this post about Teen Wolf for some time now, but I have been postponing it because of stage fright or something like it. Whenever I love something as much as I love Teen Wolf at the moment I’m always afraid that I will end up doing it an injustice with my writing. This…

Skins Review: Mini

This has been an emotional night of television for me. I was not expecting Mini’s instalment of Skins to get to me the way it did, and I was caught off guard by the events of this episode. I was very impressed by the acting in this episode. Mini was possibly my least favourite character for…

The Vampire Diaries Review: All My Children

The Vampire Diaries’ ability to move through story at an unbelievably rapid pace is both what makes it great and what makes it fail. What I’m saying is that moving through story this fast sometimes makes the new plots feel a bit repetitive. I am really happy to have a show that doesn’t drag out a storyline…

Skins Reviews: Alex and Franky

In my first two reviews of the sixth series of Skins I was fairly negative. In the third and fourth instalment of the new series, I have almost nothing bad to say. Aside from sometimes wishing there were some lighter moments in an otherwise very dark story I think the writers are handling the grieving process…

The Vampire Diaries Review: Dangerous Liaisons

As you may or may not have noticed I haven’t written about The Vampire Diaries in a couple of weeks. The reason for this is that while I enjoyed the episodes, they were nothing spectacular. The most interesting things to come out of them were the return of the original family and a lot of…

Skins Review: Rich

The second episode of Skins series 6 was not my favourite. With the exception of the very end of the episode I was mostly bored. I didn’t think the episode did a great job with the ‘hallucinating about someone who is in a coma’ plot, and for most of the episode I was stuck wondering why in the world…

The Last Chuck Review: Chuck vs Sarah & Chuck vs the Goodbye

It’s finally time to try to write down everything I loved about the last episodes of Chuck. I can’t promise that this will be a well-structured post; it will probably be a long list of random things I loved about the two last episodes. The truth is that this was an imperfect show with a lot…

Sherlock: The Reichenbach Fall

After watching ‘A Scandal In Belgravia’ I was sure none of the other two episodes would be able to top it. I was completely wrong. Despite knowing how the book ends, I found this to be utterly compelling television that had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I have to give all the praise in the world to Benedict…

Sherlock: The Hounds of Baskerville

As promised, I’m continuing my Sherlock series 2 reviews with ‘The Hounds of Baskerville’. Like in series one, the second episode of series was the weakest. That being said, I found the second episode of series two to be much better than the second episode of series one. Let’s discuss some of the highlights of this episode.

Sherlock: A Scandal in Belgravia

Last Sunday the last episode in Sherlock’s series 2 aired, and it raised plenty of questions that I can’t wait to have answered. I initially intended to write one big review of the series as a whole, but when I sat down to make some notes I realised that I have quite a lot of comments about the excellent…

Skins Series 6: Everyone

I just finished watching the series 6 premiere of Skins and I’m left with very mixed feelings. The story in and of itself and what it might lead to later in the series was an exciting change of pace from what has happened in earlier series. What bothered me was that the writers seem to have forgotten…
