Another ridiculous and totally wack hour of Under the
Dumb Dome. And the only cool thing that happened on this episode DIDN’T EVEN HAPPEN! So, once again, we’re going to have a little fun this week at the cast’s expense. This time, since they have lost their Internet and still haven’t been able to locate the router for a quick reset, we’re going back in time to the 1990′s…a time where there was no Internet. No cell phones. No texting. And no Sushi (oh, Norrie!). Just good ole’ fashion MICRO FILM!
This week, I thought I’d go back in time like the Domies, but instead of the ’80′s, I have decided that the ’90′s is the more appropriate selection.
Rather than me write a bunch of crap about how bad this episode was, I’m going to let these new lyrics tell the story. And if you really wanna have some fun, try singing the screencaps to the song. A good time shall be had by all! Enjoy Domies and Domettes :)
What can I say. We are three episodes into Season 2 of Under the Dome and with each passing week, the quality of this show is literally also trapped under a dome but not the same one as Chester’s Mill. I read the book and in comparison to one of the better novels I have read, this show is simply nothing like the novel. And as bad as Linda was, the show has somehow gotten worse without her on the show, which I didn’t even think was freaking possible!
As you can see by the image above, it started raining blood in Domeville. And if you guessed that said blood contained some form of acidic substance that could burn human skin but could not burn through anything else, then you must have been watching this summer’s fastest-growing train wreck. At this point, the story makes absolutely no friggin sense so I thought I’d try to have a little fun with this review since clearly I had no fun at all watching last night’s episode, titled ‘Force Majeure’.
So without further ado, I present to you “Old MacDonald Had A Dome.” Enjoy:
Dome butterflies infesting the Domie’s crops, cropdusters and airplane wings grazing against an invisible dome while ignoring the basic laws of real science, Junior getting completely shit-faced drunk in a prison cell by himself, and more random words coming together to form new sentences we all never thought were even possible…all in one hour! Could it be another episode of Under the Dome!?!? You betcha.
So Angie, she’s dead! And her death is going to have quite the butterfly effect on some of Chester’s Mill’s worst characters. I’m looking at you Joe! Also, the butterflies are going to have a butterfly effect of their own because caterpillars are the new butterflies in Domeville!
Here’s the morning review of Infestation to go with your Dome Berries…be sure to remove any butterfly nests from said berries first though. Now let’s get this motherfucking review off my motherfucking dome:
Under the Dome is back for another summer of epic non-stop Dome on Dome action! The premiere, titled Heads Will Roll was actually pretty half decent and I think we all owe that to the fact that Stephen King was heavily involved with the premiere episode. Also, they killed off some major characters, one of which happened in the best way possible :)
While the show has clearly taken a complete detour from the book, I am completely OK with this (and have made my peace). Plus, that new gem of a show called The Leftovers premiered on HBO on Sunday, and it is everything the Dome should have been. But, the premiere may have set Under the Dome back on the right track by getting rid of some of the mess they had created in Season 1 and introducing some new and intriguing characters. While it wasn’t the best episode simply because they had to deal with Season 1 first, I am definitely stoked to see what happens now, especially with that crazy cliffhanger ending!!!
But at least it looks like they are taking a different direction for Season 2. This could either go really good, really bad or really ugly…either way, I’ll be riding the Dome out for the rest of the Season. Here’s the Under the Dome Season 2 Premiere to go with your HoneyDome Cereal.
Where Do Whores Go?
Well, even though it aired on Father’s Day, last nights season finale of Game of Thrones was all about ‘The Children‘, and even though the title is probably referring to the Children of the Forest, the focus of the entire episode was on the children of Westeros–those mainly being Jon Snow, Cersei, Jaime, Tyrion, Arya and of course Dany’s dragons–Rhaegar and Viserys.
Further, this Season Finale was easily the best one of all of the others for a variety of reasons and, I would argue, was the first time that the Finale outdid the penultimate episode before it.
And to top it all off, with the way things ended, there is going to be speculation abound for what awaits us next season.
So, now that you have your cup filled with wine and your plate full of pigeon pie, check out the rest of the review below (Warning: Graphic images follow): Continue reading →
A Giant Mess Of Epicness
Living up to the usual hype that is the 9th episode of Game of Thrones, The Watchers On The Wall did not disappoint. In yet another epic battle, we can compare this one to the 9th episode of Season 2 when Tyrion and his crew were defending King’s Landing with a little bit of wildfire on Blackwater Bay (OK, maybe it was A LOT of wildfire). But this time, we head far North to the Wall where the Night’s Watch is under attack…by 100,000 Wildings–which includes GIANTS AND FUCKING MAMMOTHS! The night is dark and also apparently filled with epic-sized beasts!
Further, more death for some of our characters and one unbelievably sick scene where wildings were literally RIPPED off the wall by a massive grappling hook. Tears were also probably shed by all as we bid adieu to one of the greatest catch phrases of all time. At the end of the day, this episode was less about the plot and more about the action and, besides the yawnfest that is Samwell Tarly, loads of action we did get, I swear t’is true!
With only one week left until the Finale, The Watchers on the Wall did not disappoint although I am still very curious to see how they are going to fit everything into the finale unless every single scene is a ‘HOLY FUCK’ moment.
Check out the rest of the review below (Warning: Graphic images will follow as this episode was, just like last week, bloody as fuck):
Game of Thrones…you have outdone yourself yet again and you also have outdone every single horror movie with the level of gore in this episode. Or was this a full hour introduction to the new Mortal Kombat X? Just when I think I can’t see anything more ultra-violent, the kind of ‘gross’ that makes you want to vomit up your dinner immediately. That was pretty much where we were left at the end of ‘The Mountain and the Viper’, easily one of this season’s BEST episodes. Any show that has the ability to make my entire FACE ache with pain is doing something right…and I am sure I am not the only one who instantly received a headache for simply watching that last scene. In other news, Advil sales increased 300% late last night.
Before we get to that though, there was a lot more happening throughout Westeros and Essos and plenty of new character introductions to confuse all of us. For me, the scenes with Theon, Ramsay and Roose Bolton were the most interesting as I have been waiting to see how this storyline in the North plays out. Plus, MOAT CAILIN:
All in all, another fantastic instalment of Game of Thrones. This has easily been the best season to this point and there is still more to come folks! LOTS actually, and only two hours to cram it all into (drools).
Check out the rest of the review below (Warning: Graphic images will follow as this episode was bloody as fuck):
♫ Hush little Sansa don’t say a word, cus Auntie Lysa is a crazy mockingbird. ♫
♫ And if that Mockingbird don’t sing, papa’s gonna PUSH THAT BITCH OUT THE FUCKING MOON DOOR ♫
Because this is freaking Game of Thrones! While the episode lacked in action we did get a big scene at the end that should have some ramifications going forward. But really, not much happened so I am hoping the show will pick up the action when it returns in TWO WEEKS (after the Memorial Day holiday).
While Mockingbird was really not that great, it did have a couple of good moments, including all of Tyrion’s scenes as he tried desperately to find himself a champion. He is definitely saying his farewell’s and one way or another and will be leaving King’s Landing. The question is: will it be in a body bag?
And while the show is clearly changing up the story from the books, it has become obvious that they are only changing minor parts of the story rather than introduce new characters. It makes sense since there are so many freaking characters in the books but I feel as though some of the plots have been less exciting if only because the show is forced to recycle characters they have used in previous seasons (such as Hot Pie…yawn).
Now read the review for Mockingbird below: Continue reading →
The Scales of Misjustice
This show is the best. Easily. It is leaps and bounds above all other competition and after last night’s episode, titled ‘The Laws of Gods and Men’, this was all but confirmed. Heck, we even got to finally see a new City during the title sequence…Welcome to Braavos folks. Also, does anyone else who has read or is reading the books notice how often George R. R. Martin describes food? Technically, there is only 4 books if you omit all of the food and drink descriptions. Hands down, these are the only books I have read that actually make me hungry. I just wanted to point this out in case any one else noticed this. Just make sure you have a cupboard full of munchies if you plan on reading them any time soon. You’ve been warned!
But back to ‘The Laws of Gods and Men‘ and all its epicness. The one amazing thing that this fourth season has been able to accomplish is that it has added completely new stories to fill in gaps from the books, which makes it fresh for those that already know the story. But it still does so in a way that keeps all of the main plots in tact, which is important when your playing the Game of Thrones. Every little move matters, especially when chaos is a ladder, right Littlefinger?
Further, we got ourselves a new city and character introduction but the big event of the episode was Tyrion Lannister’s trial and it did NOT disappoint, even if the entire trial was clearly a farce. Read the review below:
