Game of Thrones 6.1 – The Red Woman

Jon Snow Game Thrones

[sings softly] “I know I’m unloveable. You don’t have to tell me…”

[Previously!] HEY GUYS ANOTHER YEAR OF HAVING OUR HEARTS RIPPED OUT, WHOO HOO!! Well, I don’t have any heart left, so I feel safe. Ha. HA HA HA, famous last words. You watch, come 6.9, I’ll be drunkenly crying on your shoulder. Fun stuff!

So if you’re new, here’s the skinny: I’m Unsullied! I have sworn a vow not to read the books until the show has come to an end. What’s that? You want to adjust your glasses and inform me that we’re out of Book Territory, ergo, you can say anything about—

NOPE. Ease up, Hoss. You’re stepping into JerkButt land, population: You. No book talk here. You have the whole internet for that, but this little place? [stands with hands on hips, gently smiles] This place is free of all book talk. Thankee, Sai. Plus, just ask some of the old timers and they’ll tell you how fun it is to watch me navigate the show as blindly as Arya Stark on the streets of Braavos. Continue reading

Orphan Black 4.2 – Transgressive Border Crossing

Not a cavity

Previously: Beth is back! Neolution is back! Dr. Leekie is back! Hot Paul is back! Art was bac- oh wait, he never left. Anyways, it’s all back in flashback form and things were bleak.

This season has so many people. So many characters. SO many. It’s like I’m reading a GRRM novel. Calm down. writers! No more clones! I know, I know, I’m probably the only one to say that they don’t want more clones. I just feel there isn’t enough time dedicated to our fave inner circle.

Orphan Black 4.1 – The Collapse of Nature

Season Four, bitches!

Season Four, bitches!

Oh hey there, fellow Clone Clubbers! Welcome to season 4. Did you miss me? Did you think about me? I thought about you. A lot. Actually, I really thought about Hot Paul a lot. Hot Paul and Big Macs. Sorry.

Season 4 opens with an episode entirely devoted to Beth. We get to see the days leading up to her shooting Maggie Chen and walking in front of a train which isn’t recommended for your health. Let’s just say that Beth is as big a disaster as one could imagine.

There’s a new clone in the game, but she’s always been in the game and we never got to see her until now. She’s Mika, also called MK, she has an accent, she may be Icelandic and she loves to wear sheep masks. I get the reference (Dolly, the famous clone sheep) but what I don’t get is how the hell does she see out of that thing? If I was sneaking around and spying on bad guys I’d pick something better than this. But that’s just me.

Anyways, let’s get started, shall we?

Hoarders 8.15 – Sandi, Vivian

It’s our season finale, and for me, it was a hell of a tear jerker.  (Look, I’m a mom and my son is a giant and grown up, and I get tender around little guys, okay? Ha ha ha.) Continue reading

Hoarders 8.13 – Celia, Nathan

WARNING: This week features Celia, an animal hoarder, but I promise it’s not the level of animal hoarding we’ve seen in the past. (And all of the animals have since had medical attention with the vast being adopted out, thanks to the local SPCA.) Continue reading

A reminder that this website is not affiliated with A&E, nor is it an “official” Hoarders board. I expect people to treat this site like they’re guests in my house (because that’s essentially what you are) and to be respectful. Thanks.

Two very different people with similar reasonings for hoarding: they’re both banking on having things other people could want. One wants them to donate, the other to sell. The big question is: is there any value in these beleaguered items?

Hoarders 8.9 – Ellen, Gloria

BEFORE WE BEGIN, ANOTHER REMINDER: I am not an employee of the show.  I am not involved with the actual production of the show. The purpose of this show appearing on this website is because I, an independent television viewer much like yourself, have a website and want to talk about this show in a compassion and academic way. If you find that you cannot talk about this show in a compassionate way, this is not the site for you. Go to A&E’s show boards and talk there.

I will not sign petitions. I will not share your petitions. I will not agree that these people are monsters, should be locked up, or any other hate-filled, uncompassionate ideology you wish to pin upon these people. As Dr. Zasio said in tonight’s episode, “I’M NOT HERE TO JUDGE.” I’m here to learn. It’s okay if you don’t want to, reader. You just can’t hang out with me.

Having said that, yes, tonight has an animal hoarder. While it’s never good, the animals were not in such bad straits as we’ve seen before, not by a long shot. She had outdoor kennels for them.  The Humane Society even believed she could have a few animals back, and they only do that when they’ve assessed her ability to care for them.  Continue reading

Hoarders 8.8 – Peggy, Connie and Ed

hoarders mental illness reality

[Previous episode]

Warning. One of our hoarders, Peggy, is an animal hoarder. There are no living animals in this hoard; you will not see any animals suffering. It’s awful. We all know it’s awful. This show helps identify these folks, get them on ASPCA watch lists (to protect future animals from being “rescued”) and the hardworking crew of Hoarders either gets the animals into healthy, safe environments or gently and responsibly euthanizes them. The crew usually suffers a lot of heartache on these episodes, but they’re doing real good. It’s hard to watch. I know. If you need to skip, please do.

Please do not insult the hoarder. We all know it’s not fair, right or just. Calling names and being outraged here in comments will not do anything constructive. Let’s get to the bottom of why this happens so we can hopefully stop future animal hoarders. Continue reading
