Teen Wolf, S6E16: “triggers”

Are you watching this show? Do you wish someone would watch along with you because everyone else you know thinks it’s dumb?  Here is what I was saying while I was watching it–I WILL WATCH WITH YOU.

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Wow, just when you thought it couldn’t get worse to go to Beacon Hills High.
  • Ugggh.  Spiders again.
  • Nolan, beginning to wonder if he backed the wrong horse.
  • One thing about Beacon Hills students, everyone but Scott and Stiles drives pretty decent cars.
  • Nolan, not so good at the tailing.
  • Nolan apparently stopped off at the hairdressers on the way over?
  • Theo loves punching Liam.
  • Lydia is never ok.
  • (Ron Howard voice over) “Scott did not have a plan.”
  • If Counselor Girl doesn’t know by now that Gerard doesn’t care who gets killed besides him, she has not been paying attention.
  • This plan is not going to go well at all.
  • Scott, you goober.
  • Liam seems to be having some problems.
  • This Scott-Malia scene is getting a little cringeworthy.
  • (Ron Howard voice over) “Malia did not got this.”
  • Hm.  Wondering if maybe this might not be the end of Argent.
  • Theo is making a hobby of saving Liam.
  • I’m not totally sure why the Anuk-Ite only affects Liam.
  • Lol that Counselor girl thinks that Gerard wouldn’t break her neck as look at her.
  • Honey, after Gerard kills all the supernatural people, you know he’s going after the minorities.
  • It’s not like a hunter stops hunting.
  • I don’t know if I totally buy Scott and Malia.  It just seems too fast.
  • I think this commercial break would have been more suspenseful if all the trailers hadn’t shown Melissa in the hospital.
  • GIDEON EMERY.

Teen Wolf, S6E15: “pressure test”

Are you watching this show? Do you wish someone would watch along with you because everyone else you know thinks it’s dumb?  Here is what I was saying while I was watching it–I WILL WATCH WITH YOU.

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Oh man, Theo’s memory is better than mine.  I didn’t even remember this dude from Eichen House.
  • Everybody comes home to Scott McCall.
  • Oh, our favorite veterinarian!
  • Why in God’s Name would you want to stay even 3 seconds in the presence of Mr. Fear?
  • Malia, queen of the inappropriate laughter.
  • “If there’s a problem…”  Oh look Sheriff–I think there’s a problem.
  • There is a lot of information for Scott to process right now.
  • Lol that at this point in the series, no one wants to get into makeup more than their fingernails.
  • Poor Theo still getting beat up for being the Witch vs. the World.
  • “You think any of them are more innocent than us?”  Well, if they didn’t actually kill people, then YES.
  • There’s kind of getting to be a lot of deputy attrition here.
  • Apparently America is infested with Anuk-ite.
  • Oh wow.  Look who’s coming to dinner.
  • I’m not sure how this deal worked.  Like, why would that whole mob just let everyone walk away?  Dad McCall didn’t look like he came with enough firepower to intimidate them.
  • These two are not going to make it.
  • Like no one noticed that everyone only drove as far as the animal clinic?

Teen Wolf, S6E14: “face to faceless”

Are you watching this show? Do you wish someone would watch along with you because everyone else you know thinks it’s dumb?  Here is what I was saying while I was watching it–I WILL WATCH WITH YOU.

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Oh nooooooo
  • Nothing worse than a flayed body except a spider-absorbing flayed body.
  • Oh good, it’s the deputy that wanted to shoot Scott.  This will go well.
  • Whatever happened to Liam’s parents?  Why does Scott gotta come to his house to get him out of bed and into school?
  • Well it is true that they’d probably be alive if you had listened to Scott, Liam.
  • It is, of course, true to life that no one hates anyone so much as someone who’s done them a huge service.
  • Yes Argent, it is your fault.  You needed to lock that dude down.
  • Oh My God, the pack has become basically everything non-functional about today’s society.
  • “These people want to kill us.  I think everything would be solved if we just peacefully met with them and tried to figure out what they want.”
  • You KNOW what they want.  THEY WANT YOU DEAD.
  • If you peacefully meet with them, that will help them achieve that goal real fast.
  • Argent, you know your dad would kill you in a heartbeat.  And not even your heartbeat.
  • Coach has maybe taken his medication today.
  • Wow, between Nolan and the Counselor, Liam is just full of bad options today.
  • The Counselor won’t condone bullying.  Murder is okey dokey, tho.
  • Scott, if finding out the ID of one new hunter suddenly solves everything, I’m not seeing it.
  • This seems like a bad idea, Scott.
  • Oh hey, Scott.  Turns out it was a bad idea.
  • Maybe Scott should remind her that he was one of her kind of people?
  • I don’t know.  I think if Counselor was with it enough to know that Scott and the Deputy were there at the Beast attack, she was with it enough to see that they were trying to save people from it.
  • Liam maybe needs to learn how to dodge.
  • Gerard is all “you’re going to die if you don’t fight.”  Then when Malia starts fighting “she’s going to get you killed.”
  • This might be when people should start suspecting that Gerard isn’t all that trustworthy.
  • Beacon Hills High has the worst teacher supervision ever.  Half the student body takes over a classroom to beat a dude to death and no one notices.
  • Wow, that Chemistry teacher is actually the worst ever.
  • Coach turns out to be the actual hero of Beacon Hills.
  • Deputy Deus Ex Machina in the nick of time again.
  • …And we’ve suddenly turned into every X-Men plot ever.

Teen Wolf, S6E13: “after images”

Are you watching this show? Do you wish someone would watch along with you because everyone else you know thinks it’s dumb?  Here is what I was saying while I was watching it–I WILL WATCH WITH YOU.

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Ugh, Brett, no.
  • Totemo itai, Brett.
  • Counselor is finding out what everyone in Beacon Hills knows, Gerard is a pain in the ass.
  • Maybe it’s not a good idea to take on two people who are armed when you’re already wounded and you have a total of one arrow.
  • Mason sees dead people.  Or, I guess, just one particular dead person.
  • Cory is not so sure he signed up for this mission.
  • I feel like maybe Brett should just get out of the forest and flag down a car to town instead of trying to play Hunger Games?
  • Meanwhile, Argent is looking at Melissa all “do I call you to the forest to kill stuff?”
  • If the way to be sure is to get eaten by spiders, I think I’m ok with uncertainty.
  • Liam, you goober.
  • Argent, how is shooting a dead guy going to do anything?
  • Ok, Lori and Liam might not be total assets on this one.
  • I feel like we would care more about Lori’s bro-angst if we actually knew Lori at all.
  • Did we know Cory has healing powers?
  • Looking like we might be saying goodby to Lori or Brett or both soon.
  • I feel like Melissa and Argent are no longer talking about calling about the no DNA body.
  • Man, wouldn’t it suck if people became so disaffected and fearful that they started turning on anyone different
  • Weird that Lori seems like sometimes a werewolf and sometimes not.
  • Liam, the car that hit them is right there still.  Maybe you check that out?
  • Liam is maybe not ready to be an alpha.
  • Ok, this was not my favorite episode.  Too much emphasis on characters we barely know, too many poor decisions made by people who should know better, and tests taking too long for nothing to show for it.

Teen Wolf, S6E12: “raw talent”

Are you watching this show? Do you wish someone would watch along with you because everyone else you know thinks it’s dumb?  Here is what I was saying while I was watching it–I WILL WATCH WITH YOU.

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Ok, a trip to Walt Disney World has us a couple weeks behind, but surely we can catch up.
  • [Notices it’s a two-hour show tonight.]  Sigh.
  • Theo is homeless, and still has a nicer car than Scott or Stiles.
  • Theo, letting any spider crawl all over you is a bad idea, even if it wasn’t an evil Hell-spider.
  • Itai, Theo.  And on the other hand, wow, that was some good aim.
  • Not a good day for Theo.
  • I guess it’s not so surprising that Scott has PTSD by now, as that it’s just manifesting now.
  • Vargas is totes ready to shoot Scott.
  • Mason is starting up the “Brett 8-pack Fan Club.”
  • “Yay sports!”  Mason is all of us.
  • No Liam.  Full confession to the supernatural murderer is a bad move.
  • Lydia should probably stop going back to Eichen House.
  • Poor Parrish.  Lost out to the waves of Stydia shippers.
  • Parrish, maybe you shouldn’t show your Hellhound eyes to every obviously shady character in Beacon Hills.
  • Why in God’s Name would Corey even want to play lacrosse.  His one talent is turning invisible at the first signs of peril.
  • Nothing good has ever happened in a Beacon Hills shower room.
  • You’d think Argent would at least have been in contact with Scott’s Mom, since they looked like they were starting a thing back in the haunted train station.
  • Look Dr. Fenris, it’s not Parrish’s fault that you haven’t been able to get a better job than paranormal control at Eichen House.
  • I’ll miss a lot about Teen Wolf, but not these creepy Old Spice Mom commercials.
  • This counselor is pretty unsympathetic.
  • No one ever turns the lights on in Beacon Hills High.  I wouldn’t step foot in that place without a Kleig light on me at all times.
  • Lydia, maybe your first response to someone getting murdered in Eichen House shouldn’t be going over there without having contacted anyone or told anyone where you’re going.
  • Dr. Fenris, the thing where we don’t kill people isn’t really a “faith” issue.  It’s more of an “evil” issue.
  • Of course, if Lydia packed a gun, she wouldn’t need to blow out her vocal cords all the time.
  • I don’t know if I get behind Malia-Scott (Scalia?)  He seems so earnest for her.
  • Argent loves spooking these kids.
  • Why on Earth would they think Aaron is ok, when he’s just sitting in an empty classroom by himself at night with the lights off?
  • Man, who would have thought that curing and resuscitating the worst human alive would come back to bite you on the butt?

Teen Wolf, S6E11: “said the spider to the fly”

Are you watching this show? Do you wish someone would watch along with you because everyone else you know thinks it’s dumb?  Here is what I was saying while I was watching it–I WILL WATCH WITH YOU.

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Ok, here we go.  Last ten!
  • We end as we began.  With lacrosse.
  • COACH.  “Nothing motivates better than withering criticism!”
  • Hayden moved on, apparently to a project that isn’t going to end in ten episodes.
  • Liam, still suffering from a terminal lack of chill.
  • That is one mangy looking wolf.
  • TBH, next to all these big lacrosse guys, it looks kinda chihuahua sized and not that fearsome.
  • Nothing says “ick” quite like spiders flooding out your eyes and mouth.
  • Apparently some of the pack have more dedication than others.
  • I feel like by now, Liam should be ready to admit he has an anger management problem.
  • DR. FENRIS.
  • Deep cut for all the Dragon Age/Gideon Emery fans.
  • I guess if you work at Eichen House, you never wonder why someone brought someone frozen in volcanic ash to store forever.
  • For God’s Sake, if you knew something had been trapped and sealed up since 1912, why would you think it was a good idea to randomly thaw them now?
  • Corey is worst spy.
  • This counselor is megashady.
  • Speaking of Gideon Emery, Nolan actually kind of looks like a young Gideon Emery.
  • Look, if you’re still surprised that horrible things happen at Beacon Hills High, you don’t deserve to be graduating.
  • Man, Lydia’s Mom continues her general trend of sucking.
  • Are we sure she isn’t Malia’s mom?
  • I’m glad no one is ever going to need to put a corpse in the morgue and find Melissa’s herb stash.
  • The hospital is always a good place for a Hellhound reunion.
  • This dude is the AngerMaker.
  • He must hang out on the 405 every day at rush hour.
  • That phone sound wouldn’t have been nearly as terrifying for Lydia if she had grown up in the dial-up era.
  • Man, if you find a hallway covered in cobwebs, DO NOT TOUCH them.
  • For that matter, if you find a hallway covered in anything, do not touch it.  This doesn’t seem like advanced survival skills.
  • Did everyone walk to the high school from the hospital?  They’re that close?
  • So far the counselor’s trunk looks about as disorganized as mine, except I have fewer uzis in my car.
  • Thank goodness all hellhounds shop at the inflammable shorts store.
  • Mason proves to have less luck with a bat than Stiles.
  • Liam, this would be a good time to ask this dude what “it” is.
  • Roscoe!  Scott inherited Roscoe!
  • Oh, Roscoe is working about as well as Roscoe ever worked.
  • The pack gains Malia thanks to air travel being crap as usual.
  • On the one hand, it’s probably a bad idea to go chasing people into the woods and shooting them, but on the other hand, life is rough in Beacon Hills.
  • Well I guess we found out what kills a hellhound:  Career counseling.
  • STILES
  • STILES MULDER
  • DEREK
  • DYING

E3 and Gaming Sundries

So it turns out that occasionally you end up with enough time to either play games or write about games and not necessarily both.  Probably shouldn’t have picked time management as my dump stat, but oh well.

I did end up going to the first E3 that took paying customers, and wrote about it here:  http://land.allears.net/blogs/lauragilbreath/2017/06/recap_e3_2017_1.html  Suffice to say, decreasing the number of attending companies while increasing the number of attending guests doesn’t necessarily make for a better experience.

I also got a chance to play parts of all the Kingdom Hearts games when they recently got released for the PS4, so if you wanted to find out what someone who knows nothing about Kingdom Hearts thought while playing them, you can take a look here:

Next week I’ll be heading to Anime Expo for the first time, to hopefully feed my growing Visual Novel addiction so photos from there forthcoming, but probably not from the “after dark” side of it…
