Supernatural Season 11 Episode 13 “Love Hurts”

 
On this week’s episode of Supernatural; Sam and Dean investigate a set of murders on Valentine’s Day and discover they are dealing with an ancient curse. Once kissed by the curse, the person is marked to die.
Another monster of the week episode. As much as I love having these episodes back I really want to get back to the main story. Don’t start dragging your feet now Supernatural. This one was all about love and it was really good for Valentine’s Day but it didn’t really seem like a strong episode like I have been watching all season.
We were introduced to white witches and heartbreaking monsters (literally) but what was the real point of this episode? To show that Amara is Dean’s darkest desire? Something that we already know? I really think that this whole episode was set up for those last few minutes between Sam and Dean in the hotel. To prove that Sam knows about Dean and Amara and that when the end really comes its going to be harder to kill her than they really think.
Overall it was a great monster of the week episode but nothing to really write home about. Hopefully next week will prove to be more promising to the story of this season. Until next time…

Mr. Lockjaw contest! http://www.deadburiedandback.com/atlanta/mr-lockjaw-contest/ http://www.deadburiedandback.com/atlanta/mr-lockjaw-contest/#comments Thu, 11 Feb 2016 18:48:54 +0000 http://www.deadburiedandback.com/?p=48626 Mr. Lockjaw key art

Just who is this Mr. Lockjaw Atlanta folks are talking about?
In short, Mr. Lockjaw is a psychological crime drama centered on Miles Brimley, a struggling children’s entertainer with a split personality. The shy and mild-mannered ventriloquist has an alter ego in the form of his sadistic dummy, Mr. Lockjaw. Unlike Miles, Mr. Lockjaw is extremely skilled at talking… especially talking people out of their secrets. Soon Mr. Lockjaw is making a handsome living as an interrogator for a mob boss and using the windfall to settle vendettas. Between the crimes for pay, and crimes for pleasure, Miles is trapped unless he can find someone to help him take back his life. His struggle is set against a backdrop of a crumbing crime empire, dirty cops, drug deals, blackmail, and, of course, murder. And now the talents of Mr. Lockjaw are about to tip the power balance… unless Miles gets his say. Created by Justin Craig and Byron Conrad Erwin.
Mr. Lockjaw is produced and filmed in the Atlanta area.

Lucifer sees the potential in getting his hands on this weapon so goes along as Castiel and sends Dean to 1944 to the fated submarine mission that sunk the Hand of God.

Supernatural “Don’t You Forget About Me” review http://www.deadburiedandback.com/news/supernatural-don-forget-me/ http://www.deadburiedandback.com/news/supernatural-don-forget-me/#comments Mon, 08 Feb 2016 23:24:01 +0000 http://www.deadburiedandback.com/?p=48621 supernatural_Season10_Poster1

Supernatural Season 11 Episode 12 ”Don’t you forget about me”

On this week’s episode of Supernatural; Sam and Dean drop in on Jody Mills, Claire and Alex after
receiving a panicked phone call from Claire.
Another monster of the week episode (which I love!). This one was a little bit deeper because Sam and Dean have to realize that there are other monsters out there than just the darkness that can hurt the ones that they love. Alex herself was used as bait from a very young age by vampires. She has major trust issues and wants to fit in. I think in the future she will leave to go somewhere else to save Jody’s life. They will keep coming for her and trying to hurt her and what she loves and she wants to keep them safe from all of those worries.

Claire is a different story. Claire as we all know is Castiel’s body’s daughter. I know that sounds confusing and it was for me at first but she has really turned into a great hunter. She is much older now and is trying to find her place in life. She thinks that she should be a hunter and all but it is much more than that. She wants revenge for her father and is such an angry girl. I love Claire’s character and I hope in the future she will team up with Sam and Dean and become hunters.

Jody is just an amazing character. I have loved her since she connected with Bobby and I just knew that they should ultimately be together. I know Jody is the mother type and wants to take care of the girls and feel like she is doing something to help Sam and Dean but at the same time she is constantly endangering herself. I know that this will never change for her since she lost Bobby but I almost died at the thought of losing her too. Jody will take after these girls and make sure they are safe till she can’t anymore and that is why I love her. She is such a strong character.

I am loving getting back to this monster of the week format and would a little more of our story in coming episodes. What will happen to the future of Castiel? And when will the big showdown with Amara happen? Until next time…

‘The Damned’ review http://www.deadburiedandback.com/books/damned-review/ http://www.deadburiedandback.com/books/damned-review/#comments Mon, 08 Feb 2016 22:52:29 +0000 http://www.deadburiedandback.com/?p=48592 the damned bk jacket

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hardcover 352 pgs

Duckworth&Co.

March, 2016

Synopsis: 1914. The outbreak of war. In the French city of Arras, a Father is brutally murdered. The Catholic Inquisition, still powerful, but now working in the shadows sends its most determined and unhinged of Inquisitors, Poldek Tacit to investigate his mission to protect the Church from those who would seek to undermine it, no matter what the cost. Yet as Tacit arrives, armed forces led by Britain and Germany confront each other across No Man’s Land. As the Inquisitor strives in vain to establish the truth behind the murder and to uncover the motives of other Vatican servants seeking to undermine him, a beautiful and spirited woman, Sandrine, warns British soldier Henry Frost of a mutual foe even more terrible lurking beneath the killing fields that answers to no human force and wreaks their havoc by the light of the moon. Faced with impossible odds and his own demons, Tacit must battle the forces of evil, and a church determined at all costs to achieve its aims, to reach the heart of a dark conspiracy that seeks to engulf the world, plunging it ever deeper into conflict. Morally complex and fast paced, this is a gripping work of dark fiction set in an alternative twentieth century, where humanity’s desire for love, compassion and peace face daunting challenges in a world overwhelmed by total war and mysterious dark forces.

 

I received this book a couple of weeks  ago for review but was unable to read it at the time. Now that I’ve had a moment to sit down and enjoy it, let’s jump into the review.

To begin, this is book two in the Darkhand Trilogy and I haven’t had the pleasure of reading the prequel The Hunted. But i feel I didn’t need to read the Haunted. The Damned which takes place during World War 1 is a good standalone story.

The story is a mash-up indeed, mixing genres but it’s done in a way as not to lose the reader. I will admit I am a werewolf fan. I find plots involving them in mixed genre stories intriguing. And this by far, was a well crafted “werewolf”story. While I don’t fancy myself as one who reads a lot of historical fiction, kudos to Tarn Richardson for submerging me into the shock and brutality of W.W.1 giving me the ability to “feel” like I was there. Case in point, Tarn described a place called “No Mans’s Land’. A horrid, putrid, and grim area ripe with death.

Again, the descriptions were stunning and  when Tarn mixed in the supernatural(werewolves) the story was off to a great start. Then as though that weren’t enough, religion was intertwined with the entire story.

I’m not going to worry about spoilers in this review. For those who haven’t read it, I won’t give anything too important away.

Let’s look at the lead character Poledek Tacit. He plays an Inquisitor and is familiar with all of the priests and upper Vatican leaders. His personality reflects a harsh, insensitive person but one with a very disciplined nature. He refuses to initially acknowledge “Hombre Lobo” like his peers do, but at the same time, he is determined to solve the grisly murder of some priests.

Meanwhile there is a classic battle brewing among the church’s hierarchy  over Tacit’s abilities and the cause of the murders. There’s where our female lead character Sandrine comes in. She’s an unconventional type of woman for the time period,beautiful, but set in her ways. Some people find her difficult to figure out yet like any good story character, she harbors secrets below her exterior.

However my favorite character has to be Sister Isabella. She’s strong willed, passionate and a devote Christian. she reminds me of Sister Goodnight from John Wayne’s movie Rooster Cogburn. Aside from her traits, her presence in the story seems to be the role of keeping an eye on Poledek, making sure he stays focused on his job. She’s repulsed by his personality, methods and behaviors, yet it seems she has some basic belief he’ll solve the murders. She bumps heads with him often, (almost sibling like) and this helps to keep the story moving.
Speaking of moving, the chapters in The Damned are short..very short. However nothing is lot in the short chapters and the plot develops nicely.

Overall, I’m giving The Damned by Tarn Richardson 4 stars. It’s  well written, plot rich, and the balance of mixing the supernatural with history and religion was well done. The characters themselves were spot on. Growing up catholic, I could easily identify with the priests and cardinals personalities and mannerisms.

And let’s not forget the ending. If you haven’t read it, I’ll just say it was great. If you have, you’ll probably agree with me.

Grimm “A Reptile Dsyfunction” review http://www.deadburiedandback.com/news/grimm-reptile-dsyfunction-review/ http://www.deadburiedandback.com/news/grimm-reptile-dsyfunction-review/#comments Mon, 08 Feb 2016 18:38:58 +0000 http://www.deadburiedandback.com/?p=48575 Grimm_S5_KeyArt_1920x1080

 

 

Tagline this week: The return of a local legend sends Nick and Hank searching for a lake monster.

 

 
So Eve????…….I was kinda ok with Juliette being dead, like A LOT OK. Why? Of all the characters to bring back, her? Even with an attitude adjustment, I dont like her.

Wesen War Update:
Let me keep things straight – Black Claw – bad guys, Wesen uprisings, interested in Wesen run world, Hitler.
FBI “task force” – using Wesen…….(SHEILD for MARVEL) …..Trubel, Meisner, Eve, and now Nick. And “Eve” ……….mission to defeat the members of Black Claw and squashing the uprisings.

This week’s case:
So Diamond Lake Monster takes out Selfie Queen’s Hubbie…… not a bad title. Possibly a better one than the current title. :/ Question: Who goes fishing with a fully loaded 9mm? I would of just brought worms. Selfie Queen got way more than she bargained for this vacation. Anyways! Now we have a case!!!

Alright, I have to agree with everyone else, Eve is EXACTLY like Trinity from the Matrix……like 100%
Still not sure why she is necessary. There are more than enough good guys, and more than enough Hexenbeists out there. Not sure how I feel about these “good guys” just yet. I trust Trubel, and Meisner hasn’t let us down in the past, but brainwashing people into super soldiers…. I think I draw the line. Something bigger is at play here.

So back to the case… Two brothers are in on it, get the local town drunk lake monster to scare up some profits, but then it goes wrong. Goes worse when it becomes brother versus brother. Cannot trust an odder. :( No matter how cute.

Prediction for next week: More and more uprisings will happen, as Black Claw grows so will the Resistance. At some point the council will get involved, possibly lead by Monroe and Rosalee. Eve will continue to grow and hopefully we will learn a little more about her transformation.

Until next week Grimm fans………
