Falling Behind

I wish there were more hours in a day so that I could watch everything I want to watch. Unfortunately, time is limited and I’m starting to fall behind on some shows.

A lot of fall shows are either coming close to their winter hiatus or ending for the year (or ending for good, like Sons of Anarchy), so let’s talk about where things are going with my favorite shows and what’s coming up in the next few months.

Week in Review 10/11

Another week of TV has come to an end, and there’s so much to talk about!

Sunday

The Strain came to an end this past Sunday, and quite a few people, including Marc Buxton from Den of Geek, were not happy with the way it ended. It’s true that nothing was resolved in the finale, but from what I understand this series is closely following the novels written by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan. I haven’t read the books myself, but I have heard that the season 1 finale ended the same way the book ended. The subsequent book, The Fall, takes place 2 weeks after The Strain and the final book, The Night Eternal, 2 years later. I enjoyed the first season of the Strain and am looking forward to season 2.

The Voice – Blinds 3 & 4

It’s heating up! After nights 3 and 4, we’re getting closer to my favorite part; the battle rounds!

Night 3 of the blind auditions had a lot of talent, as usual. My favorite was Blessing Offor. I was having a panic attack waiting for someone to turn their chair for him, and was so overwhelmed with happiness when at the last second, all 4 turned around. Hopefully he makes it far on Team Pharrell. I was also happy to see Anita Antoinette return from season 3. She did so well this time around, and I am very happy that she chose Team Gwen over Team Adam; I think that her and Gwen will make a good match.

I wasn’t a big fan of Bree Fondacaro; her voice had good parts but it was just too airy. Maybe Blake will help her control her voice better and turn her into a top artist.

Night 4 was good as well. I really enjoyed Katriz Trinidad‘s audition, especially since she has a killer voice at the young age of 15. When I was 15, I was super awkward, so I always love seeing these kids with incredible voices at young ages. Speaking of young contestants, I was so happy that someone turned around for Tanner Linford. I wasn’t especially moved by his performance, but I would have been so heartbroken for him if he didn’t get a chair to turn two years in a row. I was impressed with Jonathan Wyndham as well, mostly because I am a huge fan of the song Say Something (as well as A Great Big World) but he sang it beautifully.

There can’t be many more nights of auditions left, most of the teams are almost full. I can’t wait for the battle rounds; they always bring fierce competition and you really get to see the contestants for who they are as performers.
