Glee 6×12/13 ‘2009/Dream Come True’: End of an era.

I remember hearing about a new show called Glee and I remember being told by my friend that I had to watch it. I distinctly recall watching it for the first time and texting my friend saying ‘Glee = big yes! This will deffo be a thing’ and it was! Six years filled with singing […]


Glee 6×11 ‘We Build This Glee Club’: Listen to your heart.

It’s the last ever sectionals that we’re ever going to see and I’m not entirely sure how I feel about it! This episode gave all the newer members a chance to shine and to me it was their finale, as the next two episodes will focus largely on the old glee members! Hassan H. Riding […]


Glee 6×10 ‘The Rise and Fall of Sue Sylvester: The final countdown.

It’s all about Sue this week! Susan Sylvester (finally) gets her comeuppance from literally everybody – but maybe a little too much? Her superior discovers Sue’s very unprofessional hurt locker along with pornographic magazines containing a ‘Sue Spread’ and inappropriate shippings. This discovery unfortunately leads to her dismissal. Hassan H. Riding the emotions of television […]


Glee 6×08 ‘A Wedding’: A working progress.

This week on Glee we see the marriage of my favourite coupling – Brittany and Santana; oh and Kurt and Blaine! It’s just what you expect for a Glee weeding: breaking the rules, marriage in a barn, singing and dancing, random proposals and peer-pressured marriages.   Hassan H. Riding the emotions of television since the […]


Glee 6×07 ‘Transitioning’: Returning.

Finally! Glee delivers my favourite episode of season six so far with an episode overseeing a lot of transitions from genders, home, jobs and relationships. I feel as if they got it right this week and its made me really happy! Hassan H. Riding the emotions of television since the 90’s… Appreciating american TV from […]


Glee 6×06 ‘What The World Needs Now’: New beginnings.

Each week Glee comes with more and more ridiculous storylines and I’m never quite sure whether it’s due to the cut in budget, lack of viewings or an inside writer’s joke. Whatever the case is, Glee keeps delivering bizarre plots that echo the craziness of season one glee but without the originality. Hassan H. Riding […]


Glee 6×05 ‘The Hurt Locker Part Two’: The Purge

I love how ‘meta’ glee is nowadays. Season 6 of glee is definitely embracing it’s ridiculousness and you can’t really take it too seriously else you won’t enjoy it. This week picks up right from where it picked off last week – invitationals. Hassan H. Riding the emotions of television since the 90’s… Appreciating american […]


Glee 6×04 ‘The Hurt Locker Part One’: All because of a fork.

This week on Glee Sue flips her lid after Will left his unused fork on the table after having dinner – shock horror. Sue goes down one of her random soliloquy in which she ends up revealing a secret lair, also known as the ‘hurt locker’. It’s practically a store garage full of voodoo dolls […]


Glee 6×03 ‘Jagged Little Tapestry’: Honesty is the best policy.

This week Glee returns to its favourite trope of all – the mash-up.  The theme of this week for the glee club was to understand how to mash up two things that don’t usually go together. However, the universal episode for the whole episode was being honest with both yourself and others! Hassan H. Riding […]


Glee 6×01/6×02 ‘Loser Like Me’/‘Homecoming’: The beginning of the end.

Glee kicks off right after the failure of Rachel’s TV pilot as she’s forced to return ‘home’. Season 5 left us with an optimistic Rachel ready to take on television and now here we are with a broken, sullen Rachel Berry. Rachel isn’t the only one forced to return back to the Ohio – Blaine […]


The Fosters 2×10 “Someone’s little sister”: Heart and Soul.

Here we have it – the summer finale! The Fosters threw all it could at this finale tying up some stories whilst continuing and/or creating others. The finale showcases Callie’s attempts in helping Rita get ‘Girls United’ back and track whilst the remaining  ‘Fosters’ are dealing with missions of their own. Hassan H. Riding the […]


The Fosters 2×09 “Leaky Faucets”: Leaky pipes.

The Fosters is back in full swing this week after last week’s detour to ‘Girls United.’ Everybody seems to have his or her own demon to be fighting and most of it seems to be going on at the Mexican street fair; which seems to be the best place to be that day. Hassan H. […]

The Fosters 2×08 “Girls Reunited”: Circle of life.

This week on The Fosters we dive into a semi spin off with the majority of the episode being in the Girls United home. As expected, temperatures rise [literally]; secrets come out to serve a delightful slice of drama filled pie. Meanwhile back in at the Foster’s household Marianna, Mat, Jesus and Hayley have a […]


The Fosters 2×07 “The Longest Day”: Love hard.

This week The Fosters do it again and tackle issues that other shows shy from! The fact it handles such big issues so gracefully and powerfully this is one of the many things that I love about this show. This week Jude and Callie are enjoying a day on the boat with the Quinns whilst […]


The Fosters 2×06 “Mother”: Frankie.

Finally it’s all about Lena – usually Lena is there to pick everybody else up or to deal with somebody else’s problems. I think her deterioration was a long time coming but I didn’t expect it to go down like it did… Hassan H. Riding the emotions of television since the 90’s… Appreciating american TV […]

The Fosters - Episode 2.05 - Truth Be Told - Promotional Photo

The Fosters 2×05 “Truth Be Told”: I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

So this week on The Fosters each and every family member tackles, creates and reflects upon their secrets. Unsurprisingly there are a lot of secrets that reside within the Foster household. From the wise words of The Marauder’s (Harry Potter reference for those of you that do not know) they solemnly swear that they are […]


The Fosters 2×04 “Say Something”: Integrity

This week on The Fosters Callie takes a walk down biological lane leaving Jude feeling some type of way. Followed by Lena applying for the principle role with added stress from Timothy! Marianna continues her rollercoaster journey with the dance team and Jesus goes on a completely different ride with a member from the dance […]


The Fosters 2×03 “Play”: Baby moon.

What do you do when your parents leave and go away on a ‘baby moon’? Have a few people over of course! This week on The Fosters we watch Stef and Lena go away to (re)connect leaving the kids at home to be responsible young adults and not have anyone over… Hassan H. Riding the […]


The Fosters 2×02 “Take Me Out”: Choices

The Fosters delivers yet another week of twists and turns, drama, biological father issues and slight dash of emasculation on Jesus’ behalf. The majority of the episode sees Brandon go through the big ol’ decision of do I don’t I? Whilst he has regained 95% of the feeling back in his hand he feels like […]


The Fosters 2×01 “Things Unknown”: Anchor

The Fosters finally returns with just as much drama as we all expected! Last season we witnessed numerable twists and turns and to recap on the more recent storylines I’ll remind you where we left it! Season one saw Callie’s adoption rejected because her biological father is still out there leaving Jude to officially become […]
