Television became a passion of mine in my mid-teens. As I've altered and defined, I continue to love TV.I credit 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer' with flourishing this love of TV. Though my TV obsession, actually developed with 'Dawson's Creek.' Yes, I am ashamed to admit how invested I was (and still am) about Pacey vs. Dawson. I've been a writer as long as I could do it. However, I only began freelancing and blogging two years ago. There is someth

'The Vampire Diaries' Recap: 'Woke Up With A Monster'

'The Vampire Diaries' Season 6 Recap: 'Woke Up With A Monster'
The Vampire Diaries season 6 returned last night with yet another strong episode. Season 6 still lacks the charm and excitement from seasons 1-3, but it's definitely an improvement from seasons 4 and 5. The second Paul Wesley directed episode, "Woke Up with a Monster," showed clear growth and confidence. Lots of little wonderful visual tricks we don't usually see on the show.

This Vampire Diaries episode had a strong focus and vision. There were loads of parallels throughout the varying storylines. The season is also making sure no man is left behind when it comes to storylines, even if so...

'The Fosters' Season 2 Episode 12  Recap: 'Over Under' Recap: Un
The Fosters season 2 returned with some major changes. The biggest change was the possible end (for good) of Brandon and Callie. Trust played a major role in the dynamics between various characters. At the end many of the Adams-Fosters clan had to navigate what that concept meant for them, and those they love.

'American Idol' 2015 Episode 3 Recap: Kansas City Auditions
American Idol 2015 premiere week introduced us to a lot of talented singers. They excited us for this season. Last night's episode of American Idol 2015 lowered our excitement levels.

This American Idol season14 episode didn't have an array of singers who couldn't hit a note, or even boring personalities. Most of them had interesting, unique voices and stories. Most of the voices just didn't elevate to a level where we'd root for them. We hope American Idol saved the auditions that give goosebumps for tonight's episode.

'American Idol' 2015 Premiere Recap: First Stop Nashville
Last night, American Idol returned for its fourteenth season.The show that built mega stars like Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood had a few major changes. One change was to introduce us to the top 24...before auditions.

Oddly, we didn't really meet them. We just saw their outlines and heard their voices. American Idol 14 also decided to let fans see more behind the scenes action. These changes will either make the series seem more human, or less. The verdict is still out on which one.

One thing that remained the same was the judges: Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, and Harry Connick Jr. T...
