Wizards of Waverly Place (recorded) - "Wizards vs. Everything". You
know, based on this episode, there is now an easy resolution to this
thing - Justin decides to be with Juliet and Alex decides to be with
Mason, so they both throw the Wizards competition and let Max win.
What's so hard about putting together that "Wizards" wrap-up movie
again?! Oh yeah, that's right - I think Selena Gomez's ego is the
Oh, yeah - they defeated Gorag in this one. Murder count: That's now
at least two people, by my count, that the Russos have out-and-out
killed: the first was that annoying girl from "Lemonade Mouth", and then
John Rubenstein here. How do these guys get away with that?! And Prof.
Crumbs knows that Harper knows, but seems content to let that little
magic-exposure slip-up slide by...
Psych (recorded) - The comic book episode. This one wasn't as good as
the first three episodes of the season, but it wasn't totally without
some chuckles either. Fair epie.
I then switched back-and-forth between "Charlie's Angels" and "The
Vampire Diaries" (mostly):
Charlie's Angels - In this one, Minka Kelly doesn't get beaten up
(Boo!...), but she does engage in hand-to-staff combat with another
hottie chyck (yay?!...). The story of this one isn't worth repeating.
The problem with this show was definitely that they played it too
straight - this show should have been played in the tone of "VIP" or
"She Spies": it they had done that, it might of worked. But the terrible
acting and line-delivery here was never going to work with a show played
mostly 'straight'. :/
The Vampire Diaries - A mostly disappointing Fall finale, as the plot
really isn't advanced appreciably IMO. And Claire Holt wasn't in it
The Secret Circle - This, OTOH, was chock full of salty goodness, IMO.
I've already mentioned details in another thread. But, to summarize:
Gramma Jane is losing her mind thanks to the spell evil 'rents
Charles and Dawn cast. Dawn tries to imply that Charles screwed the
spell up, but I'm thinking Dawn sabotaged it to get Jane out of the way.
And Dawn is still angling for possession of the crystal, but Charles is
having none of it.
We later find out that Dawn was once a "disciple" of John Blackwell.
This explains her total evilness. I like what the show's done here: they
started out the show having you think that Charles Meade was the evilest
one - but I think it's going to turn out that Dawn Chamberlain is the
*really* evil one. I bet, before this is over, Charles is going to save
them all from Dawn.
With help from (evol?) Jake, Cassie finds her family tree. It seems
her father, John Blackwell's family was once the "Balcoin" family, and
they were into some heavy, freaky Black Magic s***. Look out!! And
(Evol?) Jake has fallen for Cassie! Who didn't see that coming?!
Apparently, what's really magic is Cassie's vajayjay... or something!
Also, Jake survives the quasi-cliffhanger, so I'm certain he'll be
And finally, the BIGGEST revelation of all: Cassie and Faye are
sisters!! You see, at the end, Jake references that Cassie is "...not
John Blackwell's only offspring". This, combined with this episode's
revelation that Dawn was scr**ing John Blackwell seems to pretty firmly
establish that Faye is John Blackwell's other offspring. If true, it
means Faye should be capable of the same freaky off-the-book magic that
Cassie is capable of (and Faye's about the *last* person you want having
access to that kind of magic!!). Now, it's possible that this is
misdirection, and Melissa or even Diana are John Blackwell's offspring.
(And I can always dream that it's Adam! as that will either end the
Cassie/Adam-Luv4EVER storyline... or send it in a *really* creepy
direction!!) But there are just too many storyline possibilities if it
turns out Cassie and Faye are sisters for them to pass the obvious
This one returns in January. I'm now quite curious to see where they
go from here.
The Mentalist was a rerun, so I did not pay attention to it.
Recorded for later: OLTL, The Big Bang Theory, Rules of Engagement, and
Person of Interest (even though it was a rerun too...).
