Welcome to another Sunday of talking about the shows that made us laugh, cry, go awww and, of course, look around and wonder what in the world was happening. If it made us feel things, whether they were good, or bad, then this is where we talk about it. This is where you tell us if you agree. This is where we let it all out.
So, without further ado, here are these week’s picks:
Badass Female Character of the Week
Lizzie: KENSI MARIE BLYE, on NCIS: Los Angeles. If nothing else, because she DRAGGED DEEKS ACROSS A FUCKING DESERT ON HER BACK. I mean, she’s very literally saved his life many times before, but this was next level shit. This was pure strength and determination and just …love. There was no way Kensi was giving up, absolutely no way. Not with Deeks’s life on the line.
Kayla: Mina Okafor from The Resident. This woman is inspiring in many ways. She’s a badass surgeon, but she also has a stubbornness that, during this week’s episode, allowed her to stand up to her boyfriend and tell him that despite him recovering from a heart transplant – that she wouldn’t leave him. That she would wait for him to recover – despite his worries that the situation would be too hard for both of them. Go Mina!! She’s definitely the type of strong female character I love to see on my TV screen!
Can I have two? Because Penny on The Big Bang Theory really was badass this week in standing up for herself and her wants about not wanting to be a mom – not only to Leonard but to Amy and Bernadette as well. It took a lot of guts for her to do it and it makes her badass in my book!!
Mimi: Cordelia Goode on American Horror Story. Listen, right now the storyline going on, is parallel to what is happening right now in our real world. Women having power and men coming in and saying, um no you can’t have it sorry, here is your male replacement. Cordelia has been accused of being a bigot because there are no men in the coven.. Excuse me that’s why it’s called a fucking coven. Morons! Oh, and hey! I want in. Sign me up! Those witches are powerful, badassess, who take no shit and run the fucking world like Beyonce. I AM HERE FOR IT.
Lacey: Everything Lizzie said. Every. Damn. Word! Kensi KILLED it!
OTP of the Week
Lizzie: Hahaha, no other ship exists right now, only Densi, on NCIS: Los Angeles. I wrote about them this week, and called them possibly the best OTP on TV, and I stand by that assertion. They progression has been beautiful, and to see them going from a place where Deeks wanted a timeline for their future, and Kensi just wanted an assertion that they were going to be together no matter what, and what that almost cause – a breakup – to Deeks basically stepping back and saying, you know what? I want to be with you, and I will give you everything I have in this life, while she promised the same, was beautiful. You know what’s even more beautiful? That I know this isn’t the end of this story, the show isn’t going to drop his worries like a hot potato. This is about compromise, and about finding common ground, and that’s realistic and true to real life.
Oh, and special shout out to Polaris and Eclipse from The Gifted, because I’m sure I’ll be talking about them next week.
Mimi: I don’t have a ship right now, but that isn’t to say one isn’t brewing. I will keep you posted, I’m waiting to see how the cards lay out, as in the Tarot guys.
Lacey: Densi, NCIS: Los Angeles. If this week’s episode doesn’t solidify them as a true OTP, I don’t what will! From Deeks’ baby dream to Kensi literally dragging him across a desert to get him to a hospital, their love knows no limits. With the way things were left in the season finale, I was so worried one of them was going to die or leave the show but now I feel like I can breathe again! Their love is so fucking beautiful, it hurts!!! I love their jokes and the way they fight for each other. They. Are. Ev-ver-ry-thing!!
Erin: Sometimes Lizzie and I have the same mind. Cause exactly what she said.
Moment that made you collapse into a puddle of FEELS
Lizzie: Marcos using his powers to send a message to the love of his life, Lorna, and her reaction, on The Gifted. She knew it was him right away, she knew what the message meant, and she turned to Dawn, their baby, and mentioned how it was Daddy saying hi. My heart broke. In fact, it’s breaking again right now as I write this down.
Erica: Dr. Charles reading Dr. Reese’s journal after she told him she was leaving Med for good. Chicago Med gets me in the feels on the regular but this was different because it was my favorite character in tears. He loved her like a daughter and she saw him as the father she never had. Seeing those tears in Dr. Charles’ eyes brought tears to mine.
Mimi: I’m gonna go with A Million Little Things. I have to say when Jon’s daughter, Sophie, realizes her dad leave her something after his death. She thinks he forgot about her, and has taken care of everyone else after his death. Sophie, has this father daughter dance coming up where she was supposed to dance with Jon. She actually looked forward to dancing with her dad. Not many teen girls can say that. Turns out, her dad knew what was around the corner and taught one of his best friends the entire dance routine, in the happenstance he would be unable to perform. Turns out, this crazy talented, sad kid got left a big gift and her dad had a plan for her after all. The dance was great and her dad’s best friend filled in beautifully in what could have been a very sad moment for her, he turned it into joy. Excuse me while I sob in a corner.
Lacey: Manifest. When Michaela told Lourdes that she hadn’t stolen Jared away and that she was coming back from vacation those 5 years ago to give him his ring back only to find out that she had lied. The look on her face when she hugged Lourdes knowing that she was sacrificing her feelings for her broke my heart. This is a woman who came home thinking a day had passed to find her mother had died and her fiance had moved on. It brought back so many Alias feels and I think this is why this one hit so close to home. I think Michaela is a stand-up woman and doesn’t want to hurt anyone, even if it ends with her heart in shreds.
Erin: When Sophie and Rome danced at the end of A Million Little Things. Sophie had felt as though her Dad had forgotten her. She felt as though he left nothing behind. BUT – he had. He’d left her someone to get her through. He took care of her. Yes, she was hurting and she was going through it – but she was going to make it. Because that’s what Dixons do. And they never forget about each other.
Moment that gave you Hope
Lizzie: Just Lorna Dane, on The Gifted, existing, and looking like a normal human being looks after giving birth, unkempt, harried and, most importantly, no flat belly in sight.
Erin: The same thing, as the moment that made me collapse into a puddle of feels.
Lyra: Janet and Michael taking the biggest risk of all: pissing off the judge. They did it to save their friends, their family, but oh boy did they piss off the wrong person! Or maybe the right one. The judge has been bored for a very long time. Maybe this commitment, this foolish/brilliant act of love towards those four silly humans, is exactly what the judge needs to give these The Brainy Bunch a chance at The Good Place.
Quote of the Week
Lizzie: Deeks: I was wrong, I want to marry you. And if you marry me, I swear to God I’ll give you everything I have in this life.
Kensi: And I will give you everything I have in this life. – NCIS: Los Angeles
Mimi: “I’m the fucking Supreme!” – Cordelia Goode, American Horror Story
Amanda: “Humans only live 80 years. And they spend so much of it just waiting for things to be over. – Janet, The Good Place
Lacey: “Behind every smile is another story.” – Rome Howard, A Million Little Things
WTF Moment of the Week
Mimi: Jackson leaving Grey’s to go and find himself, sorta like Eat, Pray, Love. I didn’t see it coming and mos def thought the whole Teddy being pregnant with Owens baby, would be resolved by now! Shonda knows how to milk a story line! Oh well, I will wait for sweeps for the shit to hit the fan and Owen and Amelia.
Lizzie: Well, the bad TV show that is Congress delivered that this week, so I guess we should be happy that TV kept it mostly together. But seasons are young still.
Erin: See Lizzie’s answer. Cause I feel the same. Congress – well all the people that voted to confirm Kavanaugh – proved they don’t care about women or sexual assault victims. So – ya, TV no matter how bad couldn’t have been worse than that.
Lyra: I was going to put something about The Good Place but then I read Lizzie’s answer. We aren’t in the good place. This is all a lie. We are in the bad place where a turd is part of the highest court in the US. Fuck that shit. Fuck that noise. And you best believe I’m going to vote my little heart out this November!
Favorite Fall TV Premiere
Mimi: SO FAR, for me it’s been A Million Little Things on ABC. I didn’t really think I was going to enjoy it as much as I do. I’m kinda over television telling me to care about people and families and friends who are your family, and adopted kids and what not.. BUT, I love it and I love the cast. I mean right now if we are talking network television, what is literally ON RIGHT NOW, this gets my vote.
Lizzie: Since I can’t cheat and say Charmed, because that hasn’t premiered yet, I’m going to say NCIS:LA, even though it’s not a new show, because it’s been 10 seasons and the show just keeps getting better and better, which is RARE.
Lacey: Honestly it’s a toss up between A Million Little Things, Manifest and New Amsterdam. All are extremely emotional and riveting in their own unique ways. I’m excited each week for what’s to come and to me, that’s everything you want in a new TV show. I really hope all three keep this momentum going because I can’t wait to see what happens next!
Erin: A Million Little Things. Hands down. But it’s still early.
