  1. I heard they were possibly looking at doing an original series a while back but wasn't sure if it was actually true. I guess that explains a lot. Whilst I agree that it's sad Joseph Morgan has signed up to another show most of the third series was about various ways to kill Klaus and the whole thing seemed to centre around him and started to become repetitive during the second half. The beginning of the fourth season wasn't as bad but it still felt as though everyone had to fall in line with Klaus. TBH the way the episodes were week after week there were only really two possibilities - He gets killed off or they change the direction of the character. So I guess by trying to humanise him and making him go to New Orleans they've paved the way for other storylines within TVD show i.e. Silas impersonating Stefan. Also the Marcel storyline with the originals is a good idea because Klaus can't threaten or intimidate people like he has done in the past. He genuinely has to earn their trust or friendship like he did with Caroline. I wouldn't bet on him not being in the fifth season at least for a guest appearance though because they might still need him or he might still have a role to play in one of the other storylines. I didn't actually blame Mikael for tormenting Klaus like that. It's true that he always resented him because he represented his wife's infidelity but Klaus ripped Esther's heart out so Mikael's actions are understandable and before that he still turned Klaus into a vampire to provide him with immortality. I'm assuming that Elijah will feature fairly heavily too. Just wondering if he will decide to seek Katherine out. I would imagine not as it would be too difficult for the actress to be in two shows at once. And then there's Rebekah. She's left with Matt to go to Italy but I wonder if she will be in the originals or will she simply be making guest appearances in TVD.
  2. Like season two, I thought the second half of the season was better than the first. One of my favourite episodes was where Rebekah and Elena joined forces to seek Katherine and find the cure that she stole. I loved the female interaction between all three, especially when Elena tried to impersonate Katherine. I also loved Damon's like "Elena without her humanity is a stone cold b*tch" line. I was thinking Elena without her humanity is freakin awesome. Never really liked Elena as a human but started to warm to her when she was a vampire and when Damon used the sire bond to make her lose her humanity, I loved her and was really disappointed when she got it back. Really please Elena chose Damon. Never really liked her with Stefan and much prefer the Damon/Elena scenes. One of the things I quite liked was the rivalry between Elena and Katherine. Elena almost killed Katherine in the penultimate episode because of what happened to Jeremy (Katherine didn't actually kill him, Silas did). And in part two of their duel, more interestingly Katherine almost killed Elena because Elena had everything she doesn't - Unconditional of the Salvatore brothers without having to manipulate them, everbody liking her without having to compel them and not having to look over her shoulder every 5 minutes. Elena was very lucky she had the cure or she would have been dead for sure. So that's one of the things, I'm really looking forward to seeing next season - Katherine as a human. Ironically it could actually mean that Klaus will no longer be looking to kill her as in theory she should be back to being a doppelganger so Klaus will need her blood to start creating hybrids again. Also how will she manage without her superhuman, strength, speed and immortality. Considering what she's done over the years even if Klaus isn't after her there still must be some people who are. Really, really not happy about Jeremy. I don't like his character at all and was over the moon when he died. And now we have him back to life and Bonnie (who is quite a good character) dead. I don't find anything interesting about him and I think it's ridiculous some of the storylines his character has had. Interesting angle the writers have decided to take regarding Klaus. They seem to be trying to inject some humanity into him. Firstly regarding New Orleans, as part of the witches plan to gain the trust of everyone in the town. Then there's Haylee and the pregnancy. And finally there's Caroline. Giving back Tyler his freedom in the hope one day Caroline will finally fall for him because he loves her. Caroline has definately warmed to him so it will be interesting to see what happens there. Klaus was a major character in seasons 3 and 4 so I'm wondering if this is a way to kind of reduce his role and focus on other storylines. The ending was a surprise. So Stefan is a doppelganger of Silas. It will be interesting to see what happens now that he has gotten ridden of Stefan for the time being and has taken his place. Especially without any hope of getting the cure.

    Revenge

    Good to see the show hasn't completely lost focus of the whole revenge theme with Emily exacting retribution on the judge who handled her father's case. I think the main thing keeping me watching at the moment is finding out more about the Initiative. I find the character of Helen Crowley fascinating and interesting now that Nolan's girlfriend appears to be in league with her and is acting as an informant reporting on activities within Nolcorp.
  4. I assume it's safe to come here now as Casey and Sasha are probably not going to get back together anytime within the foreseeable future. You know what? As someone that wanted Casey and Sasha together, I personally feel there is a lot of truth in this one sentence although I wouldn't go as far as saying he didn't like her just didn't like her enough. I mentioned this earlier this week in the UK discussion thread that I actually loved it when Sasha told Ruby to back off like some jealous girlfriend but still she wasn't even going out with Casey. And neither was Ruby for that matter. They were just friends. It did seem to me that Sasha was hanging around Casey like some lost puppy but I just put it down to a young girl with an infatuation/crush at first. Then I realised certainly from Sasha's point of view the infatuation had turned to love. It was obvious to me when Casey made a move on Sasha in the woods which eventually led them sleeping together he was only doing it because he was convinced he was going to jail for a very long time and had nothing left to lose. As far as he was concerned it was practically handed to him on a plate. I probably would have done the same thing if I was in his position. From the outset although Sid came round after Sasha pleaded her case to him he was against the relationship and you could argue that he was quite correct given how things have turned out. I liked the way Sasha supported Casey during the trial but had serious concerns when Kyle confirmed that Casey wasn't hallucinating about Tamara (contrary to useless Natalie convincing him otherwise) and Brax set out trying to find her. The way Casey was, immediately to me it seemed like he wouldn't have been that way about Sasha. Then any time there was a scene with Casey and Tamara, I kept thinking there's a real bond there and Sasha is going to get hurt. I was hoping that Sasha and Casey would get together and Casey, Tamara and Sasha could all be friends but that was just wishful thinking on my part. I personally think when Tamara saved Casey's life there was something there. It was way beyond anything physical. I do think now that Tamara deliberately set out to steal Casey off Sasha but at least he finished with Sasha before sleeping with Tamara. I agree with Dex's assertion that Casey was using Sasha but I don't think he was consciously doing it, well apart from the sex part. After Casey finished with Sasha and Sasha was just trying to be a friend to him although it wasn't what I wanted I still liked the interaction. I really liked it when she baked him a birthday cake. When she just left and didn't want to spend any time with him, I thought she was playing a waiting game i.e. trying to be a friend in the hope he would change his mind about finishing eventually. Even when Rosie was blatantly trying to come onto Casey and Sasha seemed OK with it she admitted to Casey afterwards how much she wanted him in her life. I did feel sorry for her when Casey told her he had slept with Tamara but come on, she knew in her heart of hearts that he was into Tamara. When she saw Tamara kissing him although she spoke to Casey about it she let it go. To me it seemed part of her was in denial that there was something between Casey and Tamara but she was hoping it was a temporary set back. Even when Tamara came back Sasha tried to warn her off but it pretty much seemed in vain. When she went to see Casey to tell them their friendship was over she mentioned that she didn't like the person she was when she was with him but I'm not sure I would agree with that. If being caring and supportive are not the sort of things you like in a person then I'm not sure what is. I don't think she really did anything wrong and in terms of keeping Casey there was nothing she could have done. As I mentioned in the UK discussion thread and above she can't change what happened in the desert. She can't change Tamara saving Casey's life. It's sad because if Tamara hadn't returned I think the posts in this thread would be actually discussing their romantic relationship. I do hope Sasha changes her mind about being friends with Casey in the future as I do really enjoy their interaction but I don't think it will happen until Sasha is fully over him which won't be until she finds herself another boyfriend.
  5. Absolutely loved Rebekah's truth or dare game with a little bit of compulsion thrown in. I have to admit I took a perverse kind of pleasure seeing Stefan's hurt when Elena said she was in love with Damon despite being sired to him and she made him feel completely different to how Stefan did. Similarly I took great pleasure in seeing Stefan lock Damon up, telling him he wouldn't let him out until they found the cure and not allowing him to see Elena as she was sired to Damon so could potentially free him. This is actually a reversal of last season where Stefan was locked up by Damon because he was under Klaus's compulsion. Except this time it's Damon under Cole. Seems as though we have three teams, Team Klaus (Klaus, Jeremy and Damon) and Team Rebekah (Rebekah and Stefan) who are both trying to find a cure for vampirism and the professor and his team who are looking to free Silas. I'm assuming this will be the fourth opportunity to kill Klaus (the most powerful vampire who they originally believed couldn't be killed) since he first appeared in the second season. The first was when he broke the hybrid curse and Elijah had a chance to rip his heart out but saved him so he could see his family. The second was when Damon was about to kill him with the white oak stake and Stefan stopped him allowing Klaus to use it on Mikael. The third was when he was in Tyler's body but Bonnie passed the opportunity to finish him off once and for all because she wanted to save her friend. It occurred to me when Rebekah and Stefan rekindled their romance lust that there have been three women that the Salvatore brothers have both slept with - Katherine, Elena and Rebekah. All we need is for Stefan to sleep with Caroline and that will be four. Regarding Katherine, doesn't look like she's going to be in it this season which is a shame. Come to think of it Dr Fell also seems to have disappeared...

    Revenge

    I was very excited for season two after the plane crash and was especially pleased after it was revealed that Victoria had survived. Since Emily's former training partner/lover saved her from the white haired man (see how much gratitude she showed him by knocking him out and dumping him in a garbage truck) to me it feels as though the writers are not sure which direction to take the show. Can't really say I'm all that interested although I will keep watching to see what happens. I dunno, it doesn't feel like it's about revenge anymore.

    Coronation Street

    I'm not really sure what to make of Corrie over the last couple of weeks. I think most of the characters that have been involved in any significant storylines have come across quite badly. Regarding this whole storyline with Tyrone/Kirsty and now Fiz, we all know how vile Kirsty has been and I really don't care if Tyrone wishes to have an affair with Fiz but what I don't like is (even though it it's been entirely of her own doing) it only serves to prove that Kirsty was right with regards to her paranoia about them in the first place. I have to admit I found the Tyrone's reaction when he realised Tina saw him and Fiz and the way he tried to talk to her afterwards quite amusing though Tina proved that she really is a good mate. Not only did she agree to keep quiet despite Tyrone turning on her and Tommy previously but she even let him and Fiz use her place as some love shack. This whole thing with Leanne, Nick, Peter is such a mess. I had a feeling when Leanne smirked after hearing Carla went back to the US that she was still into him and then after the scenes at the ice-rink thought it was reciprocated. Then it appears as though briefly Peter starts getting a little fixated, plays with her mind with regards to wanting to get back with her and all of a sudden Leanne wants to go back to him. Then on the day of her wedding literally before, she goes to see Peter, realises Carla is back and Peter has changed his mind about them then she decides to settle for second best i.e. marry Nick. Then at the wedding Leanne's sister decides to sabotage it out of sheer spite, malice and jealousy. And later on that day Nick then sleeps with his brother's wife. The whole thing beggars belief. While I thoroughly dislike Eva as a person and really hope one day she gets what's coming to her (I loved Stella slapping her across the face and chucking her out but that wasn't enough for me) I can't help thinking (as I recently mentioned in the Neighbours thread with regards to Rhys) that in a warped sort of way she did everyone involved a favour. It wouldn't have been fair on Nick if Leanne had married him as she doesn't love him and was only doing it for security. On the other hand irrespective of how badly he was treated and how he found out about Leanne's actions up to the wedding how could he sleep with own brother's wife? I didn't like him before (mainly because of how he used tried to use Peter's alcoholism to destroy his marriage with Leanne) but was impressed with him a while back how he looked after Kylie without taking advantage and he goes and does this. The only positive thing I can say about them sleeping together is that at least Eva didn't get him. Then there's Peter who I was initially impressed with when he decided to sacrifice his relationship with Carla and put his son first, but instead of letting Leanne move on he decides to try and get back with her even though she was getting married and then changes his mind simply because he doesn't have the guts to tell Carla the truth. Mixed feelings about Kylie returning in general. There are a lot of times where I haven't been keen on her but quite like how the relationship has developed with Gail so initially I was disappointed the way she left David without telling him the truth as it just seemed like a very cowardly thing to do. I have to stress that David's behaviour towards her has been pretty deplorable. On the other hand if this comes out this could wreck the whole family. Can't believe Rob would shaft his own sister like that - Don't any of the characters in this show have any kind of loyalty? Can't really blame Michelle for keeping quiet as if she'd said something Rob would go to jail for sure not to mention what would happen to the other factory workers. Can't really say I'm too fussed about the stuff with Sophie and Jenna although I did find it funny when Kevin tried it on with her. Something else that's been quite amusing is the relationship with Stella and Jason. Eileen's reaction and Gail winding her up was brilliant and I love the way Stella stood Karl up and told him how much better in bed Jason was than him. He must be pretty miserable with Sunita but there's really no other option for him as can't afford a place of his own. Still he's only got himself to blame.
  8. Firstly I'm extremely disapointed that Damon let Elena go even though arguably it was the right thing to do. Even in that episode I really liked their scenes a lot better than the Elena/Stefan ones previously this season. I guess that shows that Damon isn't a selfish as some (i.e. Caroline) would make out. Still really liking the friendship with Caroline and Stefan. I wasn't sure what to make of Caroline basically revealing that Damon and Elena were together. In one hand she was just trying to be a friend but on the other it felt like there was a small amount of her that wanted to tell Stefan out of her hatred for Damon. The last time I saw Stefan get angry like that was after Klaus freed him from compulsion but at least he was more controlled. He looked there like he wanted to let rip. So it will be interesting to see what he does next. I found the conversation that Caroline and Stefan had about Klaus very interesting. Both of them actually feeling guilty with regards to Tyler's plan and Stefan empathising with him out to a point despite everything Klaus has done. I actually thought that was a direct result of the converstation he had earlier with Klaus with regards to, Klaus keeping the letters of his victims much like Stefan writing the names of his victims on the wall in his appartment in Chicago. At first I thought Damon was being typical Damon when he wanted to kill the professor but now I can understand his reasoning. I don't trust the guy one bit and think he has something major planned with regards to the vampire cure. They mentioned sacrafice with regards to the hybrids a few episodes ago but it didn't actually click what Haley was prepared to do to find her parents. I have to say it was disapointing she's turned out to be a two face b*tch. The only positive thing I can say is that at least she did it in such a way to save Tyler but at the expensive of several others. Not sure that Tyler will forgive her, especially now. But I'm hoping that (a) assuming that she tries to leave Mystical falls, Tyler catches up with her (b) the professor tricked her so he was playing her all along with her realising this has all been for nothing. I have to admit that the scene with Klaus and the hybrids was pretty grusome. Even at the end with Mayor lockwood with "Have yourself a merry little Christmas" playing in the background. I did wonder if they were going to try and humanise Klaus but I think this episode he was more like the Klaus that killed Katherine's family as punishment for her turning herself into a vampire. At first Klaus seemed to really value the hybrids but again the converstation he had with Stefan when he mentioned they were both alike because they were alone and his relisation they can break the sire bond perhaps helped him made his mind up when he confronted them. I wonder what Klaus is going to do to Tyler once he catches up with him. I'm assuming he's not going to kill him right away. So April is now aware of the existence of vampires and werewolfs, witnessed Klaus killing one of the hybrids and has opened the coffin and found Rebekah. I'm hoping she pulls the dagger out of her, Rebekah is grateful and they can resume their friendship. April hasn't really featured that heavily in the season so far. Her dad kills himself and several other people right near the beginning, we know that he was in contact with the professor but other than Rebekah offering to help her find out more about his death and brief appearences in and around the school that's about it. I have a feeling though that she will be very significant in the latter part of this season. The above post mentions that the show will resume in the US in January. Not sure when it will resume in the UK as usually around now the show takes a 2-3 month hiatus which was indicated by the episode being around Christmas.
  9. After having Stefan and Elena shoved down our throats for over three seasons I'm actually glad she and Damon have finally gotten it on. I actually really like these two together and I personally find their scenes far more interesting than the Stelena ones. He won't admit it but I actually think Damon's over the moon Elena's a vampire now as it means Elena has more in common with him, obviously feels closer to him and subconsciously is more open to manipulation. Elena being sired to Damon I feel is an interesting twist and something I never would have guessed. It's ironic considering that Damon was the first person to even mention it with regards to Tyler and Klaus. Not sure how I feel about it yet as the implication is that Elena has only fallen for Damon because of the sire bond which is something I don't like and where I feel she has liked him since season two. And it's also been implied that barring the killing and bloodthrist, being a vampire is simply an amplification of what a person already is. Not sure I like Caroline sussing it out as it means she and Stefan will obviously to everything they can to unsire her (Not sure how they plan to achieve that yet). Although if they do I'm still hoping there is still a bond between Elena and Damon. I have to say I still find Damon really funny. Just to give an example a few episodes ago when he thought he killed Connor, blew up part of the hospital and went up to Dr Fell afterwards and said "Doc. Nice job", congratulating her. :lol: I don't like that Jeremy is a hunter because I'm not a fan of his character but again it's another interesting storyline. I absolutely hated the way he murdered the hybrid last episode in cold blood but it is interesting seeing the effect killing vampires is having on him. He's reaching the point where he wants to kill just like Connor, he's stronger and after the last vampire he killed, now cannot be compelled. So I think the other vampires need to keep an eye on him. Really enjoyed the Klaus/Caroline interaction and am actually hoping that they get together. Similarly, really like the scenes with Tyler and Haley and likewise think those two would be better suited as a couple. It's obvious that Haley really cares about him. For the third time in the post I use the term interesting, this time with regards to the professor's plan. Not sure why he wants to remove the sire bond from all the hybrids but by doing so I feel makes almost everything Klaus has done redundant. The whole reason Klaus wanted to break the curse Esther put on him was so he could become a hybrid and create a race of hybrids loyal to him for all time. If they're no longer sired to him then they are no different from other vampires. I wonder if Katherine will return to Mistic falls anytime soon? So far we've only seen her when Elena was hallucinating and even then she was absolutely right about how poisonous Elena is. You'd think she'd be a suitable backup should Klaus acquire the cure and have problems converting Elena back to a human.
  10. Absolutely loved Rebekah tormenting Elena being a vampire. That was really mean of her sneakily taking Elena's ring, dropping down the sink and turning on the garbage disposal. Rebekah is one of my favourite characters and I really liked that she is was becoming friends with April. It's obvious how lonely she is and just wants someone to like her for who she is. You can tell because she could very easily compel someone to be a friend but she doesn't. Now Klaus has daggered her again . I know it's been a thousand years but that's like the fourth time on the actual show. So Elena's finally made her first kill. I didn't have one bit of sympathy for her afterwards. Now she knows how Caroline felt. That's the thing about Caroline even Stefan was saying out of all the vampires she has the most self-control. I am disappointed Connor's dead as I thought he was an interesting character and wanted to find out more about him Now the only person who's left as a possible hunter is Jeremy (Is he one of the five?). Don't think he's a very good character if I'm honest. Although at least he's not as bad as Matt. He really is a useless character. Although I'd rather he was a hunter than Jeremy who seems to get pretty decent storylines and Matt barely plays a support role. It'll be interesting to see how Klaus reacts when he finds out about Connor although one thing about him is that he always has a backup plan. It won't take him long to find out about Jeremy being a potential hunter and I wonder how he's going to get Jeremy to kill the vampires to draw out the map via the tattoo. I wonder what that lecturer guy has planned for Bonnie. He got her to use her magic again but it all appears to be part of a master plan especially considering he was in league with Connor.

    Coronation Street

    I've been playing catchup with Corrie ever since the European championships and fell even further behind during the Olympics but anyway up to date now. Firstly as someone who doesn't like Michelle, I absolutely loved the way Tracy was winding her up, particularly getting together with Ryan to purposely get a reaction out of her. I found some of the scenes so funny such as when Michelle came home and saw Tracy come out of Ryan's room and realised that they'd slept together. Also the way Tracy would stick her tongue down Ryan's throat whenever they were in the Rovers much to Michelle's dismay. Also when she moved in with Ryan and Michelle after claiming that she was pregnant and making snide remarks towards Michelle - OK the pregnancy part was cruel and Ryan definitely didn't deserve that as he was prepared to do the right thing so I was actually glad Ken took his side over Tracy's. It also indirectly led to Sophie being hit by the car and now having to learn to walk again. I find the relationship and scenes Tracy has with her parents quiet interesting. Ken barely seems to acknowledge her and when he does talk to her, he doesn't having anything good to say to her, is very cynical and generally has a low opinion of her. Quite understandably too. The thing that make me laugh the most about Ken's relationship with Tracy is that whenever she's at odds with anyone his default position will be to take anyone's side bar hers. Deidre on the other hand always seems forgive and forget regardless of how badly Tracy treats someone. Firstly when Tracy announced she was pregnant Ken quite correctly told her how ridiculous the whole thing was but Deidre seemed like she wanted to support them. Then when it came out in the pub that Tracy was only using Ryan to get back at Michelle for landing Steve and she lied about the pregnancy, Deidre seemed very disappointed but a couple of days later when Tracy was painting her toenails she commented on what a nice colour she was using completely bypassing any mention how how badly she behaved. I know I shouldn't be surprised by now but come on. I recognised Wendy as soon as I saw her despite the affair with Ken being 20 odd years ago (I think). Whilst I didn't agree with Deidre following him, he really only had himself to blame for what happened. Still at least it's all good now. One thing I didn't like was Tracy sticking her oar in (of all people). I know after what happened with Molly, Tyrone has got what he always wanted i.e. a baby but it's come at a huge price. I honestly wish that Kirsty had never gotten pregnant in the first place so Tyrone could have finished with her for good. Now he's trapped. He's lost most of his friends and his freedom. And as we can see, despite acknowledging she has a problem, she still treats Tyrone like dirt. She blackmailed him re the birth certificate and now he's had to give up his job and look after their baby even though he was earning a lot more money than she was at the factory purely to try and make her happy. I'm not sure how much longer they will be able to keep this up for but with Fiz constantly wanting to check up on him, I have a feeling that something major's going to happen at some point. Funnily enough the person who's annoyed me the most regarding the Tina/Izzy surrogate thing is Gary. He's the person that wanted it the most and kept pushing and pushing even wanting Katie to be the surrogate at first then when Owen had the sense to object to it he was made out to be the bad guy. I don't think Tina should be doing it just to get Tommy out of trouble but irrespective she shouldn't have lied and it will only spell problems for her and Tommy in the long run. The sad thing is Rita was prepared to lend both of them the money to bail them out of their current predicament. I never liked Gloria so to be honest I was glad to see the back of her. She did nothing but lie and for no good reason. Sad really because had she simply been honest about why she left Spain, I'm sure things would have worked out with Stella. Whilst I'm really not happy in Gail's role in trying to entrap Lewis and I think Gloria deserved Lewis setting her up, I don't think Gail necessarily does. And she does seem genuinely sorry about what happened and as a person she does appear to try and put other people before herself whereas Gloria is just selfish. Still I think we are starting to see Lewis's true colours which is disappointing as I quite liked him as a reformed character. There have been some really amusing storylines as of late i.e. Tracy as mentioned above, Mary's very inventive theme nights re Roy's cafe to name a few but this storyline with Maria and Marcus has been absolutely hilarious. I was expecting them to do some sort of love triangle with Marcus and Aiden but I was expecting the third party to be Sean. Never in a millions years would I have imagined the writers would have used Maria. Not sure how believable it is. You hear of men in relationships, some married for 15-20 years with kids realising that they are gay but I don't think I have EVER heard of a gay man suddenly deciding he's in love and attracted to a woman. I'm actually over the moon that they slept together purely in terms of the storyline. Have to admit I felt a bit sorry for Aiden. And Marcus using Sean like that further complicates matters as Sean now thinks Marcus is still in love with him. Regardless I'm really looking forward to seeing how this storyline pans out. And I'm really hoping this comes out pretty soon and if it does I can't wait to see how some of the other characters react. In particular Sean and Jason who I imagine will be gobsmacked. Oh and one final thing to say - RIP Bill Tarmey.

    Revenge

    It finished in the UK about 3 weeks ago. Thoughts on the finale, well I never got to see that showdown I hoped with Emily revealing her true identity to Victoria but I still enjoyed the last episode. Really liked the relationship with Emily and Nolan. I think it's moved on from her seeing him as at best a slight annoyance, convenient for her payback plans to an actual friend. Liked how she risked her life to save him and the courage she had to take on the white haired man and beat him. I thought the scene where she was about to kill him and had a flashback to when she was a child and her dad helped her save the crow was very important. We've seen throughout the series that Emily's had sociopathic tendencies but one thing she's not is a killer. And I'm sure her father would have been proud. Extremely displeased that Amanda returned and even more annoyed that she's pregnant. Looks like this has put a dampener on any reunion between Emily and Jack. So Emily's mother is still alive. I would imagine she will be putting in an appearance at some point next season. And the plane crash. Was that Conrad Grayson himself or one of the people he was working for? Either way I hope Victoria survives as for me she really is one of the best characters and a worthy opponent for Emily. Just a shame I have to wait until next year.
  13. So it looks as though we're going to put up with more fighting from Stefan and Damon over Elena (great) - this time over how to deal with her thirst for blood. It'll be interesting to see how many episodes she can go before she actually kills someone. I think eventually they should bring Katherine back to Mistic falls somehow to see how she and Elena deal with each other now that they are both vampires although no way in her right mind would she return with Klaus still about. I was hoping that when Alaric died he would find peace and be reunited with Isobel but it looks as though he's a wanderer. One thing I've noticed is how selfish some of the main characters have been since the show began. The most recent example of that being Bonnie. She saves Klaus because she was worried how many of her friends would die if his bloodline was severed. Then she restores him to his previous body because she was worried Tyler would die if Klaus ripped his heart out. She is now indirectly responsible for every death which occurs subsequently due to Klaus. That was a very good opportunity to kill him and any other vampires tied to him and she was more worried about her friends than she was about the greater good which I thought was her duty.
  14. UK viewers it's back tonight - Season 4. As someone who couldn't stand Elena in the third season (with her know-it-all attitude and the fact that virtually everyone thought the sun shone out of her backside), I'm over the moon she's a vampire. Now she will experience what Caroline and Tyler had to go through and how beautiful it was at Rebekah's hand.

    Coronation Street

    Firstly I was really impressed with Nick's attitude regarding the stuff with Kylie and David. He went out of his way to help her and David and he did go up slightly in my estimation. I was really annoyed when Eva went and sabotaged things for Nick at the restaurant when he had the mayor round. If she had a problem rather than seeking some petty revenge she should have confronted him about it. I was actually really glad when Nick finished with her and thought he was well within his rights to fire her and perhaps should have done. I was virtually at the point where I was thinking Tyrone should have completely finished with Kirsty the way she was abusing him for even slightly putting a foot wrong. It has changed since her surprise birthday party and I saw what her father was like. It doesn't justify how she acted towards Tyrone but it goes a long way to explaining why she's like that. I think she joined the police force because of her father and although she was annoyed that her career was over and didn't want a job at the factory I think since working there it's actually taken a lot of pressure of her and ultimately Tyrone. I'm still not sure about them but I hope for both their sakes (and their baby's) that she keeps this up because I think she's used up all her chances. Although it was hardly surprising I was disappointing at her attitude when Tina and Tommy came round for help regarding Rick but she redeemed herself at the end and I thought her and Tina finally made a breakthrough so perhaps there's a chance to bury all this hatred and animosity. I don't quite understand why Tommy just let Terry leave with the money like that. Regardless he is better off without him. I have to say regarding Rick, Tina has really got some bottle. I think a lot of blokes wouldn't have done what she did. Irrespective although it was brave I thought she was unbelievable stupid and they were very lucky that Kirsty called the police and they just happened to catch Rick with the drugs meaning he would go to jail for a very long time. Still you do think that Rick would want revenge and has plenty of people on the outside capable of delivering it. I actually thought Tina was really harsh with Tommy. He borrowed the money off Tyrone because he genuinely wanted to help his father and the main reason why he kept quiet was because Tina was in hospital was recovering from a serious head injury and he didn't want to worry her. Regarding Rick again I felt that Tommy felt as though he really didn't have any choice. He made it clear to Rick that the debt was Terry's but Rick didn't care. I honestly believe that Tommy felt he was in between a rock and a hard place. So although I can understand Tina finishing with Tommy because of what happened with her father I don't think he was really at fault. Continue to be disgusted with Sunita. I absolutely hated the way she was towards Dev and when he quizzed her about having another man I wish she had just come out and told him. Incidentally I don't like Karl's role in this either but at least he seems remorseful but I suppose it's to be expected with Sunita if she doesn't love Dev anymore. Still I was almost jumping for joy when Sunita wanted to be with Karl and he told her it was just a fling and it was over. Yes..... She's quite miserable at the moment. Good. Don't have any sympathy for her and I hope she packs her bags and goes elsewhere. Although it's an important topic I really haven't liked the stuff with Peter and Leanne re Simon. Felt really sorry for Peter when he made the decision to let Simon go and live with Leanne because it was what made Simon happy. He clearly loved him and felt he was doing what's best for Simon. To me with Leanne the way she was it still feels like she is punishing Peter choosing to be with Carla over her. Stella's attitude towards Peter really annoyed me too. When Stella first arrived I actually quite liked her but now I often find her incredibly sanctimonious. Especially given how she appears to have sided with Sunita over Dev. The ironic thing being if she finds out what happened with Karl she will promptly switch sides.

    Revenge

    I've only seen two episodes but I'm totally hooked. It's good to see something different. I absolutely love Emily (or should that be Amanda). Really like the relationship she has with Nolan. I had to watch the beginning of the first episode again just to try and understand what significance the characters had in the opening scene. Loved the way she screwed Lydia over then Bill in the second episode. Loved Victoria's reaction when she thought she had the beach-house in the bag then Emily announced she was the new owner. It's only going to be a matter of time before Victoria finds out who Emily really is. The general theme of this show appears to be every week Emily ruins the life someone who was involved in her father being framed and going to prison so invariably she's going to run out of people to pay back. Regardless I hope she gets every single one of them and let Victoria be the icing on the cake.

    Coronation Street

    I've been playing catchup with Corrie for the last month and now I've finally caught up. Firstly there were a couple of episodes a while back that were absolutely hilarious both involving Steve that I wanted to comment on. First one was when he broke the partition in his flat with Tracy, lured her into a false sense of security then moved Beth and Craig in. Something in particular that made me laugh was when Deirdre was sitting down comforting Amy and the look of fear in both of their faces when Craig was staring at them. The second episode I found funny was when Tracy convinced Beth that Steve fancied her and Beth asked him to come round because there was something wrong at the flat (can't remember what) then she got all dressed up and cracked onto him. The way he screamed then backed off was really funny. Also his relief when he saw Craig and used him as an excuse to get away. Just love the way that the writers always find ways to make some episodes extremely comical. Anyway onto more recent stuff. Having Frank killed off was the obvious path for his character simply because there were so many people were out of shape with him. I have to say given his track record, I was genuinely surprised how many woman actually fell for his charm. Even right near the end Jenny was quite prepared to go along with his plans even though he was going to shaft his own mother. It's debatable whether he deserved it but the way he was going on he had to be stopped and I'm sure he would have continued his reign until he was caught. I actually didn't think it was Frank's mother who killed him. What threw me off was her reaction when they released Carla without charging her. I suspected it was a non regular but thought it was possibly Jenny. I did actually feel quite sorry for Anne. She's lost both her husband and only child within a space of weeks. And her confession to Carla simply demonstrated that she wasn't a bad person but genuinely thought the Frank was innocent. Now she's going to jail for a very long time and has no one. I was very unimpressed with Peter. It's one thing cheating on Leanne but another thing being prepared to abandon his son and serve a life sentence for the woman he loved. So he loves Carla more than he does Simon. I can understand Leanne wanting to remove Simon from the environment that he's currently in now that Peter is back on the wagon but there does seem to be an element of payback wanting to apply for custody. Not sure who's side I'm on to be honest. I felt really sorry for Eileen for the crap she's had to put up with. You could argue why she was getting involved in a relationship with a married man but I do think that Paul was taking advantage of her and I didn't blame her when she wanted them to leave. I thought Tracy was pretty vile to Eileen after Lesley went off with Amy but I do think she had a point about Lesley. Now that she finally is in a residential care home, part of me still think's it's morally wrong Eileen and Paul continuing the relationship. Mixed feelings about the fued with Audrey, David/Gail. I can understand his claim about wanting to protect her from Lewis and legally she doesn't have a leg to stand on but the only reason she signed the Salon over to him so that if anything happened to her he wouldn't have to pay inheritance tax. I do think that part of David doesn't want to give the Salon back to her in case she changes her mind about the will. And then there's Kylie sticking her oar in. She is seriously annoying me and to be honest it's non of her damn business. She wants the salon purely for herself. Really not liking Sunita at the moment. Even though Amber shouldn't have thrown the house party and deserved to be punished, I found myself shaking my head when Sunita basically told Amber she never liked her. So Amber clearly never stood a chance. I actually didn't blame Amber for leaving. Then there was the fact that Sunita kissed Carl and clearly fancies him and looks for any excuse to have a go at Dev. I actually believe that Sunita doesn't love Dev anymore which is part of the reason why she always gets annoyed with him. The storyline with Carl's gambling is a realistic one. Can't really blame Stella for throwing him out but I'm sure she'll calm down and want to talk to him eventually. Still, until Carl actually admits there is a problem nothing can be done.

    Coronation Street

    Not so much a great week this week but the last 2-3 weeks before that have been brilliant. I thought Becky was amazing up to her departure and she ended up being one of my favourite characters. I really enjoyed the payback with Tracy and I esepcially loved the way she and Kylie got David and Gail onside and they both wanted ring-side seats. I was quite excited during the actual wedding and thought Becky was going to out Tracy there and then but the scene in the pub was brilliant. My only gripe with what she did was even though Steve took Tracy's word over hers you would have thought that if she really did love Steve like she said she would have at least saved him from a marriage with Tracy. I thought she should have exposed Tracy's lies at the church. Steve is not a bad person, he gave Kylie 20 grand of his own money so Becky could have Max then ended up getting into serious financial trouble. Becky's departure i.e. leaving for good to go to the West Indies with a guy she'd barely known a month was unrealistic but at least she got a happy ending. I always thought she was a well written and very believable character full of flaws but someone with a good heart. I was glad this reflected badly on Deirdre as she could have prevented the situation from even getting to this point but she always looks at Tracy with rose tinted glasses. I really liked the scene where Steve and Ken were getting drunk together and bonding over had bad Tracy was and how she had them both duped. Not sure what's going to happen with Steve and Tracy now. I can't see her agreeing to any annulment even if she realises that she doesn't stand any chance of getting back with him, she'll stay married just to spite him. Again really good writing re Frank and Carla. Really tense scenes at the court and again really good moment when Frank's mum handed Leanne the photos the P.I. took of Carla and Peter. I loved the part where Carla looked at Leanne, looked away realised what she'd seen, looked back again (whilst Michelle and Maria were looking too) and the horror of her affair was exposed. I felt really sorry for Leanne and although she cheated on Nick previously didn't deserve that. The worst thing for me is that Peter is completely unrepentant. He admitted that he wanted Leanne to leave so he doesn't deserve her anyway. A while back at first I wanted to see Peter and Carla together, then I wasn't sure but I'm completely against them now. I actually don't blame Frank's mum for believing Frank. She's only trying to look out for her son and I don't think any mother would want to believe their son is capable of what Frank did. Sally on the other hand, I can't believe can be that stupid. It's so obvious Frank is only using her. I had a feeling he was going to get off. Whilst it's not good, it makes for great TV and the stuff with Peter and Carla coming out didn't do Carla any favours as they were caught out lying. Interesting part of the story having Frank and his employees move back into Underworld. The dynamic is interesting and already we can see the problems it is causing. Just how long can Carla stomach working with him for? I was a bit worried that Owen would turn nasty having being dumped by Anna but he's been no worse than he was before. I thought finishing with him was perhaps a bit harsh but he had no right to hit Faye and she probably doesn't want to be near him any time soon and Anna and Faye come as a package. If I'm honest, I'm glad to see to the back of Rosie. Thought she was an awful character - highly annoying, very little depth and for the most part came across as a selfish, spoilt, self-centred prima donna. I wasn't entirely convinced by the acting either. It seemed like she was acting a lot of the time and overdoing a lot of her scenes and facial expressions. And to show the sort of person she was, she'd been living with her boyfriend, staying at his mother's house and she dumps him purely for financial gain and to further her own career - Nice girl! Oh and Mission Impossible, The Man from U.N.C.L.E Robert Vaughn now Milton Fanshaw AKA Silvia's boyfriend. Still loving that calm, controlled voice of his.

    Coronation Street

    I agree about Lloyd it seemed pretty pointless him going so soon after Cheryl when they could have just left together. Shame he had to leave like that i.e. the person who was prepared to do the dirty on his mate. I've actually really liked Becky as of late. I liked the way she's remained calm with Tracy under extreme provocation and am 100% on her side with regards to Tracy's accusation. I'm not surprised Tracy lied about Becky like that even though Becky was the one who called the ambulance when she fell down the stairs. I said this a while ago but she is a pathological liar. Tracy hadn't been that bad as of late up to that point but the only reason for that was because things were going her way. The ironic thing is if she had simply trusted Steve and not confronted Becky about the affair that wasn't happening she might not have fallen down the stairs. I think what's most frustrating about this storyline is not so much Tracy but other people who are blindly supporting her. Very disappointed with Deirdre. She's not only remained quiet but now is effectively covering for her. The fact that she went to the hospital to visit Becky clearly shows that she knows she should definitely have come clean or given Tracy an ultimatum to. This is the problem with Deirdre. For the most part not a bad person but does seem to suffer from naivety and tunnel vision as far as Tracy is concerned. Not sure what to make of Ken. I find it hard to believe he hasn't pressured Tracy into going to the police or called them himself if he believes her side of the story although he didn't report James for the money he conned out of Kevin via Sophie. So maybe he doesn't like going to the police any more. Again very frustrating with Steve. I thought he and Becky really made a connection when they had their business dinner and didn't like the way he suddenly turned on her after Tracy's unfounded allegation. He was married to her, he knew how desperate she was to have a baby and how good she was and how much she liked children so there is know way she would push a pregnant woman down a flight of stairs. Perhaps he thought she was drunk. Still I'm surprised he hasn't questioned why Tracy hasn't pressed charges given that he believes Becky's been responsible for the death of his twins. Part of me wants him to self the pub buy the house and the find out about Tracy just to teach him a lesson but on the other hand he's only doing what he thinks is right and doesn't deserve to spend a lot of money on a partner to have it fail - again. I was also bit disappointed with Haley at first but I'm glad they're all good now. In saying that at least there were a minority who believed Becky. For the most part David and Kylie act like cretins especially regarding the stuff with Owen but I did like the fact that both of them were on her side. I especially liked how worried Kylie was when Nick pulled her out of the burning flat, how they were at the hospital and all their scenes. A stark contrast to when they had a brawl at Gail's several months ago but at least it makes them believable as sisters. I also really liked the fact that Gail and Nick took Becky's word over Tracy's. Obviously Gail could empathise with her given what Tracy was prepared to do to get herself a better deal in prison. I don't like Nick but as I mentioned above fair play to him for going in and saving Becky like that. I don't like Eva at all so I can't help but smile every time Gail tries to rub her up the wrong way. Long may it continue. What really made me laugh though was when Carl expressed his delight to Steve at the Rovers when he thought Eva was moving out which turned to total dejection when she burst into the Rovers crying that Nick didn't want to live with her. Didn't really like the way Stella was going through the presents Peter's bought like that but now she's seen the necklace for Carla, even though Carl's temporarily put her off the scent the minute Stella sees Carla wearing it, there's going to be trouble. A while back, I took Sunita's side over Amber's but Amber has been doing my head re her attitude with Sophie and I'm beginning to understand why Sunita is so hard on her. In saying that I do actually think she was trying to do Sophie a favour. It's a shame Kevin had to be the one to say something during the wedding rather than Sophie and yet again he'll probably be made out to be the villain but I think it's the best thing for everybody involved. No way should Sophie and Sian be getting married, especially considering that Sophie was prepared to cheat on her just a couple of weeks ago. As Kevin said forever is a very long time. Very bad timing right during the middle of the ceremony but it would have been even worse had they gotten married. Presumably the relationship will end when Sian find's out about Amber which is unfortunate. As an aside Sian's mum's face seems familiar.
  21. Thanks for getting back to me QA. I watch at UK pace and for the most part purposely avoid the Character Discussion or Australian episode forums as I don't want to know what's going to happen in the episode until I've seen it. There was an Avatar which I came across (in neither of the forums I've just mentioned) which had a major spoiler if your watching at UK pace which is unfortunate as it appears to be something I wouldn't have predicted but at least it's been removed now which is something I suppose. Cheers.
  22. The lost treasure of Fiji My brother's kids are down for Christmas and were watching it. It had Tegan from Home and away, she had red hair, was a Pirate and a very bad girl :lol:
  23. Hi Guys, What are the rules regarding Avatars? Are they still at UK pace or are they at Australian pace now? Thanks and merry Christmas.

    Coronation Street

    This week was very Peter centric. I watched the omnibus so it was hard to determine where the breaks were but there were a lot of scenes that kept cutting from Peter in one place to him in another. Anyway I think the storyline was good but I was disappointed with him. On the anniversary of the tram crash and his wedding he not only fails to turn up for the speech but gets drunk then cheats on Leanne. I know he didn't sleep with Carla but that was only because she was still suffering from the trauma of the rape. I had reservations several months ago when Peter decided to give Leanne another chance even though I was rooting for them as I felt Peter still has residual feelings towards Carla. This is all going to end in tears. I can just see it. I'm actually glad Leanne can't have any more kids as had she gotten pregnant again this situation would have been even worse. I'm going to assume the stuff with Peter and Carla will develop into a full blown affair and eventually Peter and Leanne will go their separate ways which as much as I hate to say would actually be a good thing. The only thing I can say in Peter's defence was that the guy at the hospital who died hit him really hard and if it hadn't been for that he might not have gotten drunk. I can understand Dev refusing to sell Peter the alcohol and telling Ken but I'm not sure why he was threatening to call the police as Peter left him and £20 note - More than enough to pay for it. I actually thought there was quite a bit of chemistry between Stella and Lloyd and so was not surprised when he kissed her. Too bad as I quite liked that friendship and now they are going to go out of their way to avoid each other. Carl's not going to be happy when he finds out but he is kind of preoccupied with this gambling problem of his which you could argue is just as Peter's alcoholism. I was giving Kirsty the benefit of the doubt previously but I seriously think she's got a screw lose. I do think Tina's overly paranoid with her though but what's turned it for me was when Tina was prepared to let bygones be bygones and Kirsty laid into her. I knew Tyrone was going to let her move in so I would imagine Kirsty will try and make life difficult for Tina and force her out. Although Tina's been paranoid, Kirsty's arguably just as paranoid. She's also possessive and jealous. Although I was kind of laughing when Kylie hid the model stork Owen put in the garden, I think she and David are both extremely immature and it's hard to imagine them brining up a kid but we'll see how it goes with Max. I do think she was right to ask Becky to stay away from him as he still sees her as his mother.
  25. Thanks for chipping in Lise. I don't think many people are watching season 3.
