Woah, man. That was an intense finale. Action packed, fast paced, and definitely left us wanting more. In fact, I don’t think it could have left us hanging any harder if it tried. Some of our questions were answered… actually, the answers to our questions were more like, hinted at, while more questions were piled on top. So while we might not know much about the fate of our rag tag group of survivors, we do know this: next season is going to start off with a bang.
Holy. Shit. When the producers let it leak that The Walking Dead would air it’s most controversial episode ever this season, I assumed it would be about Lizzie, but I did not think it would go down like this. I am most definitely shocked. And a little shaken up. What started out looking like a relatively boring episode (I’m really not a fan of kids in the apocalypse), ended up being way intense. And the performances that these actors brought just blew me out of the water. Bravo to everyone involved. Let’s look back at the insanity that happened, shall we?
By now, almost everyone has heard of the record breaking Kickstarter campaign that made the Veronica Mars Movie happen. With creator Rob Thomas at the helm, millions of fans (or Marshmellows) around the world, banded together and opened their wallets to see their beloved TV series return. I, unfortunately, was not one of these fans. Not because I didn’t want to, but because I didn’t have a credit card at the time of the fundraising. Which in hindsite, was probably a good thing, as I would have donated a small fortune to see my favourite teenage P.I. get her return. And after seeing the movie last night, it would have been money well spent (even if it was money I didn’t have), as the movie was stright up awesome. I don’t remember the last time I left a theatre so satisfied. I am a very happy, warm and toasty marshmellow. Kind of like the middle of a gourmet smore. That’s me right now. And now I want a smore. Damnit.
For as long as I can remember, watching The Oscars was a part of my life. As a kid, we would make appetizers, and snack as we watched the best and brightest of Hollywood take home the biggest award the industry has to offer, struggling to stay awake until best picture. As I grew up, I created my own traditions, which have evolved into watching the awards with friends in sweatpants. Classy, maybe not, but definitely fun.
So tonight, is much like every Oscar night in recent years. We have snacks, we have rye, and I’m surrounded by hilarious people. So here’s a live recap of what happened last night, and what we had to say about it.

See, THIS is what I’m talking about. Two excellent stories flowing seemlessly between one another. This week’s episode of The Walking Dead did just that, and it was fantastic. Some great plot development happened, without seeming rushed, and we got to see deeper into some of our favourite characters, as well as some of the new guys. I really dug this episode, and it totally keeps up to the high bar the midseason premiere set 2 weeks ago.
To say I’ve been excited for Super 8 for a while would be a vast understatement. I have been dying to see this movie since it was announced. I love me some JJ Abrams, I love me some Spielberg, I love me some monsters running rampant through a small town… there really wasn’t anything about this movie that could have gone wrong in my eyes. So when I finally got to see it last week, I was actually a little nervous it wouldn’t live up to my expectations. Turns out I had absolutely nothing to worry about. This flick was everything I wanted it to be… everything I needed it be and more. Awesome story, stellar acting (the cast actually blew me away) and it was pure Abrams. I loved it.
