Bad decisions make good stories. And I always have a good story.

Tag: The Strain

Watched 4 pilots

Not talking about the people who fly planes but the very first episode of a TV series. It is also the episode that determines whether there will be a whole season. So I decided to watch for 4 shows to determine how good they actually are and if I like them.

1. Game of Thrones (2 episodes) was pretty good. But also quite confusing because of the lingo so I had to keep pausing to reference. Not sure which characters to trust yet but Cersei Lannister is a bitch ok.

2. The Walking Dead (1 episode). So boring… probably the last show on this list I’ll continue watching. How did they ever get the green light to develop a complete season with this? Also, the horse was doing fine on its own until Rick came along and rode it into a horde of zombies and caused it to be eaten alive wtf.

3. Pretty Little Liars (1 episode). Best pilot on this list! Maybe because the high school aspect is more my thing… Plus everyone is so gorgeous. It is one of those good-looking shows like Vampire Diaries. And who doesn’t love secrets?

4. Buffy The Vampire Slayer (2 episodes). Surprisingly good… I like it as much as Pretty Little Liars. I’ve always wondered why there is such a huge cult following for this show. It does look very promising. Also, Sarah Michelle Gellar is perfect.

5. The Strain (2 episodes of Season 2). Also about vampires. I finished Season 1 many months ago and finally started on the next. It is all right, good enough to make me keep watching. The characters are all so bleh though. Like I won’t really be sad if any of them dies?

6. The Vampire Diaries. At the time of this entry, I’m already loading episodes 4 and 5. Which is further than any of the other shows on this list even if we do not count past seasons. I know I said I would stop watching but I just can’t help myself!! All the characters I care about and love so much. They matter to me with or without Elena around. Plus this season is kinda different in the sense that they are actually showing scenes from flashbacks of the past, present day and three years later!!? Will my faith ever be rewarded?

I’ve spent more than 10 hours today sitting on my ass and watching shows… So productive. Sorry not sorry. Back to Vampire Diaries, bye!

I know this face

the strain quote

“You always say that. And I know you mean it… but it’s never true.”
– The Strain, 1×02

This is the face of someone who genuinely wants to believe that everything will be fine and that it will all work out in the end. The face of someone who doesn’t dare to hope or have any more expectations because time and time again, he ends up disappointed. The face of someone who really wishes he could trust you once more, but knowing that you are just going to fuck up and hurt him again. The face of someone who will still be quick to forgive you regardless of what you do because it’s impossible to stay mad at you. And because the alternative of not talking to you hurts more than anything else. The face of someone who still secretly believes that things will change for the better because any other thought is too painful to bear. The face of someone whom you take for granted because you know he will always be here to put up with your shit. The face of someone left wondering if he said or did anything to deserve such emotional abuse from you. The face of someone who would rather continue to listen your empty promises than argue with you. The face of someone who would rather suffer in silence than to lose you. Even though maybe he already has.

Yeah, I know that face.
