The Bachelorette 10×07 ‘Week 7’: The final countdown

The final four were pretty obvious this week, don’t you think?  I mean, Brian and Dylan barely got any airtime, and from what I can remember Dylan was the only one who hadn’t kissed her yet or said he was falling in love.  Despite the predictability of it all, this was an intense episode full […]

The Bachelorette 10×06 ‘Week 6’: Truth, masks and lies

This week, Andi took the boys to Italy.  We saw two one-on-one dates (with Nick and Cody) and a group date (with the rest of the dudes).  Emotions were high, love was in the air, and drama ensued!

The Bachelorette 10×05 ‘Week 5’: Broken bromance

A lot happened this week, including drama between the bros, a skipped cocktail party and more contestants being let go than usual.  Let’s pull an Andi and cut right to the chase.

The Bachelorette 10×06 ‘The Journey So Far’: Recap week

I have to admit that I thought this episode was kind-of a cop-out and also an excuse to show the un-aired rose ceremony from last week.  If they were going to do something like this, they could’ve certainly created an entire episode as tribute to Eric.  It is what it is, though, and on the […]

The Bachelorette 10×04 ‘Week 4’: Fake show, real drama

I’d never seen The Bachelor or The Bachelorette before, so I wasn’t sure what to expect.  Both have terrible reviews on IMDB, but they must be doing something right if so many people are watching, you know?  So, I took the plunge and decided to try something new. Stephanie Shar is a freelance writer, creative […]

Believe 1×11 ‘Revelation’: Sick day

For some reason, everyone seemed sick in this episode.  Channing, who had been shot by Roman, was suffering an infection.  Dani came down with The Degrade, a vague and fatal disease that seems to affect those with powers after using them too much.  We also discovered that Bo’s mom was ill, and her death was […]

Believe 1×10 ‘Collapse’: This show bombed, literally

Sorry, but I just couldn’t resist with that title.  Unlike my experience with Mixology, the NBC drama Believe has not grown on me; in fact, it’s only gotten more annoying.  It wasn’t on for a few weeks for some reason, and I have to admit that I didn’t miss it.  I gotta say, though, they’re […]

Mixology 1×13 ‘Closing Time’: The end of the beginning

Apparently, this was the season finale, even though I read an article that said there would be two parts to it.  Either way, I’m pleased with how the show ended, and everything worked out as it was meant to be in the end — with characters getting laid or falling in love or just making […]

Mixology 1×12 ‘Last Call’: ‘Ask her to watch Zoolander’

It’s inevitable that as soon as I finally start to like this show, it gets cancelled.  Fortunately, they’re finishing up the season, with part one of the series finale airing next week. Stephanie Shar is a freelance writer, creative life coach, and newbie mother making her dreams come true in Los Angeles.

Mixology 1×11 ‘Bruce & Maya’: Couple swapping

This week, the singles continue to switch it up.  At the beginning of the episode, we see Jessica flirting with Dominic, Maya flirting with Bruce, and Liv heading to a strip club with Ron, as Kacey and Fab fight over their gynocologist, who has just arrived at the bar.  By the end, everything has changed […]

Believe 1×09 ‘Prodigy’: Daddy issues

So… is anyone else annoyed by Bo and Tate’s relationship?  Bo completely has the upper hand and Tate just goes along with whatever she wants.  Sure, she has super powers, but she doesn’t have the ability to force people to do things they don’t want to.  Tate allows her to manipulate him, and it’s obnoxious. […]

Mixology 1×10 ‘Liv & Jim’: ‘Did he just dump us?’

I gotta say, I was pretty intrigued as to how things would go down after Jim saw Liv making out with Ron.  Fortunately, things ended up going exactly how I wanted them to.  It was predictable, but at least it was right.  Are these characters getting smarter, or just sober? Stephanie Shar is a freelance […]

Believe 1×08 ‘Together’: ‘It’s not normal helping everyone you meet.’ ‘Why isn’t it?’

After only seeing half an episode in the past and doing minimal on-line research, I came into this week’s segment with the following questions:  What’s the point of Bo’s powers, and where did she get them from?  Who are the people she’s with, and why do they care so much about her?  Where are they […]

Mixology 1×09 ‘Dominic & Kacey’: ‘I always thought relationships were for old people, or lesbians’

Alright, let’s recap: Jessica and Ron are starting over, Liv is engaged but still likes Ron, and Kacey is torn between Dominic and Cal.  Bruce is still weird and Tom is still shy, while Maya and Fab are still, um, there.  I also just found out that this show is supposed to take place at […]

Mixology 1×8 ‘Jessica & Ron’: How not to date

Welcome to a world where women have whiny voices and shallow minds, men pick fights like high schoolers, and everyone’s goal is to get laid by the end of the night. You have entered Mixology — which might as well be any bar in LA. Stephanie Shar is a freelance writer, creative life coach, and […]
