Why you should watch: Veronica Mars

Today is July 1st. Besides the fact this month sucks, the only highlight of this month is the fact that “Veronica Mars” is available to be streamed fully on Hulu in America, and some other streaming services around the world. Because of this, and it coming back on July 26th with an eight-episode fourth season. In honor of everyone favorite sassy blonde detective coming to streaming syndication, here’s why you should watch “Veronica Mars” if you haven’t already.

Long Time ago, We used to be friends

Who is Veronica Mars?

Veronica Mars is a private investigator that works at her father’s detective agency in the sunny Neptune, California since she was a teenager She solves cases for her peers and even helps solve her father’s cases, whether he wants her to or not. Veronica was initially one of the upper elite, wealthy clique at Neptune High. She lost her friends after her father, the sheriff at the time before being voted out, accused famous software billionaire Jake Kane of murdering his daughter and Veronica’s BFF. Oh, she was also dating Lily’s brother before she was killed. Yeah, Veronica has a lot going and this is just the first episode.

Why should you watch Veronica Mars?

“Veronica Mars” is an extremely well-written show that isn’t just a teen show. It’s a smart show that is written in a manner that everyone can get it. Each episode has it’s own standalone case while there is a bigger mystery taking either the whole season or half a season. “Veronica Mars” is the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” of the teen mystery genre. Without “Veronica Mars,” you might not have shows like “Riverdale.” It made the teen noir mystery seem cool. Veronica Mars was sassy, smart, and very similar to Buffy Summers. Both characters weren’t the girls you think would be taking down bad guys. They weren’t the stereotypic blonde girls you would see in their style of shows. They broke the mold.

I could sit here for hours and tell you about how much I love “Veronica Mars.” If you like good, quality noir and mystery shows, I highly recommend watching “Veronica Mars.” Just because it’s a teen show, it doesn’t mean you should sleep on the show. It’s not your average teen show and really shouldn’t be in that category. Take a trip down to Neptune, California, and meet everyone’s favorite private investigator. It worth your time.

Miley Cyrus shines in epi​sode of ‘Black Mirror’ as Ashley O

In case you have been living under a rock, Miley Cyrus not only released the first third of her seventh album, “SHE IS MILEY CYRUS.” But she also starred in an episode of the Netflix series “Black Mirror.” Before she becomes the first person to get on the Billboard Music charts under three different names, it’s time to talk about Miley’s episode on this series. It’s the best of both worlds.

Meet Ashley O, aka Hannah Montana 2.0

Head like a hole, black as your soul

“Black Mirror” is a British Anthology series. So what this means that none of the episodes are standalone episodes and have nothing to do with each other. So can watch Miley’s episode without having to worry about getting caught up first. The series follows what can happen with new technology in modern society and the side effects of what would happen, whether good or bad. If you know what “The Twilight Zone” is, it’s similar to that.

Miley’s episode is entitled “Rachel, Jack, and Ashley Too.” It follows Ashley O, a pop star that is starting to feel the pressure of being something that she doesn’t feel like it’s her. Her management team is doesn’t care and puts creative constrictions on her. Ashley is looked up by a fan named Rachel, who gets an AI doll of Ashley called Ashley Too who she uses to as a friend. Rachel hasn’t been able to make friends since the death of her mother. Rachel’s sister, Jack, isn’t a big fan of Ashley O or the Ashley Too doll.

This episode is a fantastic episode. The episode has issues when it comes to a coherent plot and pacing. There are too many plots going on that it’s all over the place. You think it is going one way, but then it goes another and forgets where it was going to go. Like there was a plot started about Rachel and Jack dealing with the loss of their mother, but it was thrown out during the middle and final act of the episode. Then it gets resolved by the end, but there’s not any real resolution.

The primary arch of the episode is more on Ashley O, and her management controls her so she can be who they want her to be due to how much money she is making for them. Without going too much into the story and spoiling it, it’s incredibly relevant to pop music in this day and again. More so in particular to the #FreeBritney movement that happened a couple of months ago. Honestly, Ashely O has a lot of similarities to Britney Spears.

The pacing of the episode is the biggest problem. It drags through the beginning and part of the middle acts. It’s not dull per se but it doesn’t peak your interest until the true intentions of the Ashley O and her management team come into the light. Most of the beginning is just getting to know Rachel and Jack, which is fine but the plot isn’t really strong enough to carry the show. Especially when it doesn’t proper development.

“Rachel, Jack, and Ashley Too” isn’t a bad episode but rather a good one. It just suffers from too many plots that create a slightly incoherent plot at times and pacing. I do recommend checking it out because Miley’s performance in it was everything. Miley was the highlight of the episode, especially as the Ashley Too doll. I got “Hannah Montana” vibes from the wig, and that’s when nostalgia hit. I liked the episode and hope they do more with Ashley O.

The world is ending in ‘Now Apocalypse’

I love when Nickelodeon and Disney Channels to go “wild” and do outrageous and crazy roles. That’s what dragged me in when I saw that Starz’s new show “Now Apocalypse” would feature a plethora of them. So let’s talk about “Now Apocalypse” and either you should watch or not. You can probably already guess what my answer is going to be.

It’s the end of the world as we know it

“Now Apocalypse” is a comedy show that follows four friends as through their lives in Los Angeles. It follows their friendship, relationship, dating, and their sex lives. Things turn weird when one friend has visions of the world ending. He must then try to figure out whether it’s too much weed or if he was actually seeing into the future.

The show stars Avan Jogia (“VICTORiOUS”), Beau Mirchoff (“Awkward”), Kelli Berglund (“Lab Rats”), and Roxane Mesquida (“Gossip Girl”). Also in the series is Tyler Posey (“Teen Wolf”) and Jacob Artist (“Glee”). The acting isn’t bad at all. In all honesty, it’s rather good. They are all likable for the most part and do a good job in their roles. It’s not going to get them an Emmy but they should at least get a good pat on the back.

This isn’t the show for you if you don’t like sexual shows. There’s a lot of sex. Gay sex. Straight Sex. Orgies. You name it and the show has it. It’s what you would expect on HBO, Showtime, Netflix, and Cinemax when it comes to their programming. It’s borderline softcore porn but yet it’s using it in a way that also helps propel the story.

The ending of the show was lackluster. Without going too much into details, it was kind was a cliffhanger but not in the way that really made you go “omg what just happened?” It was kind of like “okay…” I just wish it had more of a cliff hanger to it. I honestly thought there was one more episode. I don’t know if I was that invested to it or the cliffhanger was that lackluster.

“Now Apocalypse” is just a show to watch if you are in need of a dirty good time. It’s not a horrible show but it is an earth shattering good show. It’s just one of those shows that you don’t really need to over think but you can still enjoy it. I honestly didn’t know any other characters names until about the sixth episode. If this show comes back for season two, would I watch? Honestly, I probably would. It’s like a trainwreck of sex. You just can’t help but look away.

I do recommend checking out the show. It’s not anything especially but it doesn’t need to be. There are only 10 episodes and they aren’t long at all. You can easily binge the show. This is a prime example of why shows don’t need to be a highly rated show to be a good one. It’s a total gulity pleasure show.

Sweetwater Tea Episode 5: The Stranger

Listen up fives, a ten is speaking and I’m in the mood for some chaos. Sorry to interrupt, sad breakfast club.  There’s definitely a lot of chaos in our fateful town. Hopefully you’re in the sex bunker because this tea will scar you. Will the news that Archiekins is seemingly swimming with the fishes rock the town with pep? Or will everyone’s favorite daddy put this news in time out? Welcome to Sweetwater tea.

You never truly leave Riverdale…Riverdale leaves you in the ground

Old Archie can’t come to the phone right now

Old Taylor isn’t the only thing that is dead. Riverdale’s resident abs wunderkind apparently is dead. Old Archie that is. But luckily for us, the body is alive and kicking. Dem abs have come back into Riverdale alive and well and his lovable doggie boyfriend made okay too as well. But will Riverdale accept Archiekins back in with open arms?

The answer there is of course. Who doesn’t love a sensitive yet harden former jailbird with a set of abs you can bake cookies on? A didn’t realize that Riverdale has moved on while he was off playing metrosexual lumberjack in the great maple north. It’s just like how his friends and family haven’t realized that this isn’t the same Archie that left. Will they realize that Archie is just seeing red for revenge? Or is it too late to save Archie from his personal demons that have consumed his non-existent ginger soul? Or will he finally let his love for Kevin Keller save it? So the last one may not be true, but a girl can dream, right?

Between rock and a hard set of abs

We feel for you R

Oh, V, didn’t Daddykins ever teach you that two is a party but three is a crowd? While I support and encourage throuples, they are only in okay in the bedroom in Riverdale. Throuples aren’t Ronnie things and with Archiekins back in town, V seemingly pushed Reggiekins to the side. He was last years Prada bag. While everyone wants their “veggie,” “Varchie” looked to be getting back into the swing of things. And by the swing of things, I mean having sex all over the place. Apparently, she’s paying the serpents extra for that kind of protection. Someone should really tell them that sex is only okay in the bunker and not in/under Pops. That’s a major health code violation besides just being tacky. Is tacky is something that you want associated with the Lodge name, Ronniekins?

Poor Reggie is forced to resort in Bumble to mend his broken, well-sculpted heart. Loose lips sink ships, and Reggie’s loose lips definitely sunk their ship. Was it intentional or was it just an accident? Time will only tell. The only thing I know is that it was the iceberg that sunk the U.S.S Varchie faster than the Titanic. But can you really sink something that was even afloat to begin with?

Hiram Lodge: Daddy AF

Don’t worry B. You weren’t the only one to say this when poor Daddykins got shot

It’s rough to be the DILF of Riverdale. All the planning and scheme and manipulating really takes a toll on a person. Especially when two other daddies try to set up to Daddykins. Fred Andrews decided to storm into Hiram’s humble abode and go all Beverly Hills, 90210 on his ass. Of course, Freddiekins didn’t go in alone. He decided to go to the local pet store for a serpent. He got the king serpent. Does F really think the King DILF is going to be spooked by that?

Spoiler: Hiram wasn’t and in fact, Hiram just blew it off. Can you blame him? He has other things to worry about. It appears that someone got brave and shot our precious Daddykins. You know what they say; when you take a shot at the baddest DILF in Riverdale, make sure you hit. Because when Hiram shoots, he never misses. Who shot Daddykins? V thinks it was A. But was it really the butler that shot Daddykins with the gun in parlor? Looks like Ronnie will need more than a game of “Clue” to figure out who try take out daddy. Of course, it could have been Ronniekins herself? Hell hath no fury like a scorn of Lodge.

Everyone loves a daddy in Uniform

There’s a new sheriff in town and I hear he’s a little bit of a snake. Who doesn’t love a daddy in Uniform? Especially when that daddy is FP Jones. Looks like Miss Daddykins didn’t like the plans that Hiram had wanted. What Hermione wants, Hermione gets. And she wanted FP in a uniform. Can you blame a girl?

Serpents bite the hand that feeds the Gargoyle King

While the true villain of Riverdale came out in the form of the PSATs, Jughead Jones continued on with his plans to strike at the Gargoyle Gang. Juggiekins and his band of serpents, with the help of hottie Fangs, took down the Man in Black’s, aka Hiram, team one by one. Turns out, the man posing as the Gargoyle King was an old friend of the serpents. Tall Boy.

A less known serpent who recently appeared with the wicked bitch of Northside Penny Peabody and the Ghoulies. It’s just too bad that he died in the sex bunker before Jughead got any answers. J did get good use of Archie and Veronica’s handcuffs and that wicked right hand. But that’s why you get when you leave your minions to do your dirty work. But was Tall Boy really the Gargoyle King or was it just an elaborate plan by the head daddy in charge to keep Jughead at bay? If I was Jughead, I wouldn’t let my guard down just yet. The more to still story.

But has Jughead has forgotten about the wrath of the HBIC? Will Cheryl Bombshell exploded onto J after what he did to her and Toni? Of course, she will. Cheryl might forgive but she’s doesn’t forget. She just gets even. She has a arrow with his name on it. Pointed right at his heart.

The Cooper Family Values

Maybe Choni can fund Betty Cooper to College with their sex money

While Jughead was having private rendezvous with hunky Fangs in his and Betty’s sex bunker, Betty had other things on her mind. Like her mother becomes the farm’s resident MILF. Alice Cooper turned into a cult MILF and funded their newest endeavor. How? Well, Alice also got a little bit of the sticky fingers. It’s so bad in fact that Betty had to go visit Daddy in the big house. Mommy Dearest happen to forge his signature in order to purchase a home for the children in the Betty Cooper foundation for the Children of the Gargoyle. Nothing says home sweet home like a place that even the nuns killed themselves to get out of. I guess Betty doesn’t need to go to college when you can just study with a cult for free.

Turns out the only women that Hal Cooper has coming back for more is his daughter and his cousin. That’s right, the town whore Penelope Blossom was parading to prison as Alice Cooper. Penelope was helping Hal get his rocks off. Not even his fellow prison mates want Hal to drop the soap. Too bad too, Hal probably wouldn’t have caught an STD from dropping the soap. But does the fact that B is visiting her dearly fucked up daddy a sign of forgiveness? Or is she just looking tap into the family darkness that turned her father onto his path to be the Black Hood?

Just because it seems like a happy ending is coming to the town with pep, doesn’t mean that it will be. What comes up, must always come down. And in Riverdale, it comes down hard and fast. Get ready kiddos, looks like you will soon be wishing that the PSATs and the Gargoyle King will be the only thing you have to worry about. Your world is about to get fucked worst than one of Hal and Penelope’s prison hookup.
