Last week was premiere week for many television shows. Here’s my take on a few that I loved.
Chicago Fire is a series that I absolutely, positively love! I mean, seriously LOVE (and it’s not just because it’s about hot firefighters…). I had been really anticipating its season premiere, and I wasn’t disappointed. Instead, I was floored. They killed off one of the main characters, and I definitely didn’t see it coming. It reminded me more of a season finale than a premiere, but I’m excited to see where they go with it! Losing Shay was emotional for me…it hurt. I get invested in the characters and their relationships with one another, and I definitely felt the hole that was left by Shay’s demise in the show. However, I do think that it affected me less because it had been quite some time since Chicago Fire was last on. Being the first episode back, I hadn’t had a lot of time to really feel for the characters again, and Shay was gone within the first five minutes. Although, the flashbacks tugged on the heart strings. It definitely brought about a lot of emotions and mixed feelings for the crew, especially Dawson! I look forward to seeing how this season plays out.
Nashville was a highly anticipated series return for me. I absolutely love this show and could not wait to see which direction it was going to take. A lot happened at the end of last season, and I was anxious for it all to be continued, and for the aftershocks. Oh, the aftershocks. The season premiere was exactly as I anticipated it to be. It was a lot of raw emotion with a lot of back and forth on Reyna’s part. She struggles to choose her future husband, as she was proposed to TWICE in one night, by two different men that have played important roles throughout her life. I had pegged her decision to be Luke during the episode, but the writers threw a few loops in there and made me question that decision a time or two. Ultimately though, she showed up for Luke’s charity event and flashed her 7 karat diamond ring! Although, the look on her face at the end of the episode shows that there’s some doubt in her mind that she made the right decision. I guess we’ll see! She’s right though, Deacon will always be in her life, no matter how much she might wish it wasn’t true. I can’t wait for this week’s episode, as they didn’t show a preview! It must be something juicy…
Grey’s Anatomy is my hands-down, all time favorite TV show. Seriously. :). Oh, Shonda…how you don’t disappoint!
I have mixed feelings about Meredith’s new half-sister (that she still doesn’t know about). Maggie Pierce. She seems like she’s going to fit in just fine, but she’s butting heads with Meredith already, and only drama can ensue (which is exsactly what Shonda wanted)…I’m just not feeling it yet. But the preview for this week’s episode shows these two in an all out WAR! I. Can’t. Wait! Bring it on, Shonda! Also, it was a little weird not having Christina in an episode – I admit that I was anxious to see how that would take shape. However, it wasn’t so bad. There are so many other people to indulge in and follow their stories, I didn’t really miss Christina… *gasp!*
