SGRoA: Forever Knight, S03 E17: Avenging Angel

A woman is patching up another, and telling her the rules of the shelter she’s in. No contact with the abuser, at all, for any reason. She can do what she wants when she leaves, but while she’s at Laura Stone’s shelter, she can’t reach out to the boyfriend/husband.

The woman thanks Laura, and Laura leaves her room, only to hear another woman screaming at the other end of the house. She runs to the room, and has to unlock the door, only to find a woman dead and her daughter curled up in a corner, screaming “He killed my mother!”

Oh, I think I remember this one. We’ll see if I’m right about the killer at the end. Continue reading

RiTS: Dracula, The Un-Dead, Chapter 3

Guuuuuuuuyyyyyyyyyys. I’m warning you, this book may be a DNF – Did Not Finish. I wasn’t looking forward to this recap at all, and if you’re super-invested, I just want you to know, it might not happen. I might just go back to Nick and the gang. They don’t leave me feeling exploited.

BUT. I will stick it out as long as I can. Continue reading

SGRoA: Forever Knight, S03 E16: The Human Factor

THIS IS IT. THIS IS THE ONE. We finally will put to rest the “Is Janette dead?” question once and for all. (She totally is, you guys. Just like Screed.) LET’S RECAP.

Some dadbod in boxers is watching TV in…a hotel room, I think. It sounds like cartoons. “Nancy” is in the shower, and he tells her to hurry up just before there’s a knock at the door. He opens it. A woman says, in French, “Hello, Mario.”

“What do you want?” Continue reading

RiTS: Dracula, The Un-Dead, Chapter 2

Ugh, you guys, this book. This fucking book.

But I said I’d do it, and I’m going to do it. For you. Because I love you. And because I want you to feel my pain.

So we open right where we left off, with Seward staring at Bathory. He’s all “entranced” by her beauty, which includes her eyes being Continue reading

SGRoA: Forever Knight S03 E15: The Games Vampires Play

You know, like skee-ball and jacks and shit. Right? Vampires play, like, Uno and Cards Against Humanity? Hee. Against Humanity. That’s a good one. Let’s recap!

We open with some spectacularly shitty virtual reality. Like, the game effects in this episode are just regular footage overlaid with something that makes it look…drawn, I guess is what they’re going for? Like that weird Keanu Reeves movie that came out a while back, where they filmed the movie and then drew over it, so everything was Continue reading

RitS: Dracula, The Un-Dead, Prologue and Chapter One

All right, Snowflakes. I needed a little break from Nick and the gang; blogging about them twice a week was wearing on me. Variety, after all, is the spice of life, and this site was getting a little bland, don’t you think?

Anyway, we’ll be looking at Dracula, The Un-Dead by Dacre Stoker – and yes, he’s related to Bram – and Ian Holt. I saw this book described as “the worst book ever” on a comment thread over at Trout Nation, and I had to buy it. But because I am also the worst ever, I knew I would make you share my pain. :) Same rules apply to this recap: I’ll be analyzing the writing as well as summarizing the story, so hopefully we can all learn something.
