Season 1: Max is my favourite (but I do know his hair in the Pilot is terrible), but, to be fair, I was Tumblr!loving him already. I also love Penny, and Brad, and Jane, and Alex… and, nope, not Dave, I HATE Dave. The first thought that went through my mind watching the first episode was: “I hate this guy, I hope he’s not the lead.” Back to good things, there are so many cool guest stars, including Michael Rady, O. T. Fagbenle and Max Greenfield!
Season 2: Megan Mullaly, Gilmore Girls mention, David Walton, the ah-mazing Halloween episode, Alex being into Max, James Wolk being perfect, FRIENDS comparison, Blake Lively mention, switching bodies, John Krasinski as the perfect man, Ellen impression, Brian Austin Green!! Those are just some of the best things that happened this season, the show really grew into its own, I think the Halloween episode was the break, and it simply didn’t stop. Alex and Brad bonding over rom-coms (Michael Cassidy, you’ll always be a Luthor to me) while the show uses all those silly clichés on the other storylines? Genius.
Season 3: Penny falling down those stairs… I’m not a bad person, but I laughed really hard, even harder when she said she’d died in the ambulance. Maybe I’m a bad person, who knows? None of what’s written here is definite proof of anything. Alex’s pranks, “Winter is coming”, Max pretending to be Brazilian, Elisha at the PUPPY PARTY, meta jokes… yes, I’m naming my favourite things that I can remember about this season. I liked Pete, I’m sad it didn’t work out with Penny, but that goatee reminded me of someone else’s… I did not like that facial-choice. There was a LOST reference in an earlier season, so I choose to believe that Chase’s hospital rant, when he says “I have looked deep into the abyss of the next world, and it is beautiful” is another one. “The Brazilian” talking in Spanish, what was that? Of course that the whole “Gossip Girl was a guy” was from here. That fucking show haunts me.
Final thoughts: I’m gonna pretend that Max and Grant found each other in the future and lived happily ever after. Max was definitely the least gay of the guys. Penny is lovely, and her breaking into songs was magnificent. Brad and Jane are proof that happy couples can be fun to watch, they are hilarious and amazing and lovely. Alex using her brain and learning things was scary, but I’m not sure if it’s more scary than her usual cluelessness, which reminds me, her impression of Cher: flawless. I warmed up to Derrick, or should I say, to his DRAMA? My hatred towards Dave never subsided. I cannot stand him, it’s mostly a gut thing, but it did not went away. I was glad that he was less prominent (or maybe I just ignored him as best as I could while still paying attention), and that his annoyance was lampshaded A LOT. What’s strange is that I actually liked his unresolved thing with Penny, not that I shipped them cause I wouldn’t wish Dave on anyone, but that was the only mildly interesting storyline he had. I really hate the guy. I really liked the show.

Steroline + scenery
Yeah she has been making a lot of bad decisions lately and it affects other people. Also can we talk about Finn tho O M G MANU the fighting scene. Finn is just too cute for words.
He really is. First of all offering to help her, then wanting to know if the rumours were true, and then getting punched and not even caring. All of it while looking his usual fit self… Plus, I’m a sucker for those blue Adidas sneakers he had when he was talking to that girl in the car. He wears the best clothes, I swear.
I don’t think it’s bad that she’s with Liam per-sé, nor do I think that their different “progression” should be an obstacle if they truly care for each other. In fact, I think it’s good that she has someone who’s going through the same thing right there in college, they can support each other and understand what their feeling like nobody else can.
I’m mad because last week she was talking about being an honest person, and that was her excuse for outing Archie (which was the worst), and this week she’s kissing Liam after swearing that there was nothing going on between them to his girlfriend. Of course that Liam is the one who had a relationship, cheated and then didn’t own up to it, but she knew better as it was happening, she got Chloe in the crossfire, and only then decided to be honest.
Looking: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, KEVIN GOT DRUNK AND KISSED PAT. WHAT IS EVEN AIR? I was expecting something huge to happen, and I think it’s clear that their “thing” wasn’t one-sided, but that kiss, just, I’m still trying to process it. I can’t even imagine what will go down in the finale, except that there’s no way that kiss is staying a secret, and I can’t wait for it. I loved getting to meet Pat’s parents, they are both exactly what I expected, and entirely different. His mum’s right, Richie wasn’t there because of Pat, and that’s a big problem considering they are in a relationship. I hope we see more of them, and of Scott Evans, Pat had to bring him up for a reason, right? I know everybody hates Agustín, but I don’t. I think he was an idiot and Frank’s right to want him out of his house, and maybe even his life, but I hope this whole thing makes him open his eyes and start getting his shit together. Dom and Lynn need to make up before the big night, Doris remains the most awesomest of them all.
The Walking Dead: While I liked the episode and I appreciate the show trying to get us to care about everyone, I really missed the other characters, and I also think there’s an obvious advantage for TPTB in that they get to stretch things out a whole lot this way. This episode flew by, though, and we got to learn more about Daryl’s past, and more about Beth’s present mindset, which was great. DARYL MENTIONING RICK AS HIS PERSON = RICKYL IS REAL, PEOPLE!
My Mad Fat Diary (episode 4 SPOILERS): ARCHIE!!!!!!! I love him so much, I’m really happy that (almost) everyone was so understanding. I freaking adored that Finn knew, their looks… I want more of this bromance!!! Chloe’s been great, and her reaction to Archie cracked me up. I fucking can’t deal with Rae at the moment. I’ve been mad at her this whole week cause she had no right to out him, and I knew the moment she listed as an advantage the fact that she and Liam weren’t romantically involved that that would change, but he’s got a girlfriend, and she got Chloe punched in the face, and it’s all a mess, so here comes another week of being mad at her.
