Welcome to another Sunday of talking about the shows & movies 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: As a general rule, NCISLA’s Kensi Blye is my badass female character of the week almost weekly, it’s just that I don’t want you all to get tired of me being so repetitive. This week one moment stood out, the moment where I saw Kenzie get the respect she deserves for being not just a badass, but someone that always knows what to do. Like Deeks would say: that’s my girl!
Ashley: Seven of Nine on Star Trek: Picard is a total badass at all times, but I was especially impressed with her swooping in to rescue Elnor and then with the way she questioned her decision to reactivate the Borg cube because she feared her own capabilities. That tells me much about her character and I find that reticence not only admirable, but badass.
Emily: Zarya from Overwatch has had me swooning with her newest skin. I am a very casual gamer, but I love playing Overwatch, especially when there are events. It’s currently the anniversary event, which always has really cool skins. Zarya’s has me feeling some sort of way because she’s so important to me (physically strong woman? Hell yeah!), but now she’s in a fantastic work-out look, and I’m here for it.
OTP of the Week
Gillian: Ray and Nora from Legends of Tomorrow! Aw, their relationship has just been wonderful to follow. I loved the messed-up proposal and their wedding was absolutely beautiful. I love that Brandon and Courtney got to work together in this capacity as they’re one of my favorite real life couples as well. I’m gonna miss them so much!
Lizzie: Outlander’s Jamie and Claire, again. The thing this show does so well is present these two as a couple that has reached peak OTP status not by loving each other, or lusting after each other (which, yes, they do), but by actually communicating. The conversation they have about maybe keeping the baby that was left in their care was beautiful, and just what needed to happen. Those decisions should be made together.
Julie: Luke got an “I love you too, I think” out of Emily this week on All Rise! These two are so sweet together. She has a lot of trauma from her past relationship to overcome, and it’s lovely to see her open up to Luke.
Naomi: I have to agree with Lizzie here on Outlander. The younger Jamie and Claire were hot and heavy for much of the show’s early seasons, and they have always been a good match. But as they have gotten older, the smolder in their relationship continues in different ways. Their admiration for one another, their respect for one another’s choices, and just their complete and unconditional love. You could see all the love and pure joy on Claire’s face as she watched Jamie dance- so sweet!
Ashley: Jake & Amy from Brooklyn Nine-Nine had me swooning with their pregnancy announcement. I’m so excited to watch them grow as a couple through their pregnancy!
Jessica: Olivia and Asher, All American. I’m so happy that these two got back together. They realized that they missed each other, and, even though she declined, it was so sweet that he wanted her to come on the trip with his mom. I hope that these two can be happy (and drama free) next season.
Moment that made you collapse into a puddle of FEELS
Julie: Judith and Daryl’s conversation on The Walking Dead last week was so soft and sweet. Remember when she was just “Little Asskicker” to him? Him getting her to open up about her fears, and Judith repairing his vest was almost too much for my heart. I can’t wait to see more between these two.
Gillian: Shocker, a Pixar movie made me cry. Onward is flawed, but the way they portrayed a sibling relationship was very well-done. Me and sibling relationships this year has been a ride. I’m being vague because I don’t want to spoil anything, but I’m glad Ian came to that particular conclusion when he did. It elevated the movie for me, when I was only mildly enjoying it until that point.
Naomi: I should be immune to Barry Allen’s trauma by now on The Flash, but alas I am not. When Barry realizes that he has killed the Speedforce, it appears as his mother. It explains what he did, but goes on to tell him he was their best choice and that it loves him. The f’ing Speedforce loves Barry! Of course I was a balling mess! I don’t know how, but Grant Gustin and Michelle Harrison bring their A game to the table every single time they are on screen together.
Ashley: One of the things I love about Elnor is his “absolute candor.” His utter relief at Seven’s rescue on Star Trek: Picard included a tackle hug, which I found endearing and incredibly sweet.
Jessica: TK telling the team that he wants to be a firefighter on 9-1-1: Lonestar. His speech was lovely as he realized that the 126 is exactly where he wants to be. I loved the group hug. In 10 short episodes this group has become a family, and I can’t wait for season two.
Quote of the Week
Lyra: “We’re having a baby.” – Amy Santiago, Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Jessica: “Them real housewives are getting real crazy. Ain’t nothing scarier than a rich white woman planning a three year old’s birthday party.” – Spencer, All American
Julie: “There is nothing wrong with asking for what you deserve” – Alexis Rose, Schitt’s Creek
Ashley: “Fear is the great destroyer, Rios.” – Jean-Luc Picard, Star Trek: Picard
Gillian: “Uh, good question. We are morally against futons. We hate when furniture poses as other furniture.” – Camila, Diary of a Future President
WTF Moment of the Week
Gillian: The reveal on this week’s Nancy Drew was absolutely crazy and I’m still reeling. I haven’t fully been invested in the show, but the past few episodes have been great, and I’m looking forward to how this all plays out.
Lizzie: Can I just say every moment Trump has been on TV this week, looking more orange and deranged by the second?
Jessica: The cancellation of March Madness. I get why the NCAA had to cancel the tournament, but it’s still heartbreaking. In Kentucky, this is the best time of the year. I feel terrible for all the athletes who had their seasons cut short especially the seniors who will never have the chance to compete again.
