Today was all about relaxation... I really should have edited a podcast as several are due very soon but it was a long week of work and I wanted to do nothing but catch up on some TV as it's starting to build up on my Tivo.
So today I watched 2 episodes of Star Wars Rebels, 3 episodes of Downton Abbey, 2 episodes of Once Upon a Time and 2 episodes of Doctor Who. Here are my thoughts...
I then watched Star Wars Rebels S1 Ep 4 (3)
"Rise of the Old Masters"The Ghost crew discover an underground transmission reporting that Jedi Master Luminara Unduli has survived Order 66 and is being held in a high-security Imperial prison on Stygeon Prime. Kanan leads his crew to rescue Luminara for her to train Ezra, frustrated with his own inability to teach the boy. Upon reaching her cell, Kanan and Ezra discover that Luminara is long dead and that her remains used as bait by the Inquisitor to lure the Jedi into a trap. The two work together to escape the Inquisitor before Hera rescues them aboard the Phantom. Afterward, Kanan comes to understand the meaning of Master Yoda's saying, "There is no try," and resolves to train Ezra himself.
After Star Wars I moved on to Downton Abbey and started with S5 Ep 4, Violet and Isobel visit the soup kitchen Rose is running for the Russian
refugees and Isobel is surprised when Violet confesses that Prince
Kuragin once asked her to run away with him. Isobel herself is flattered
by Lord Merton's sincere marriage proposal but asks for time to
consider whilst Mary travels to London to reject Tony's offer. He is
persistent but by chance she meets and dines with Charles Blake. Edith
hears that Michael may be alive but in prison in Germany for opposing
Fascists though is upset when the Drewes refuse to let her see Marigold.
Bricker's reappearance angers Robert, as does Sarah Bunting's continual
challenge to his authority, causing him to ban her from the house.
Baxter discovers that Barrow is attempting to 'cure' his homosexuality
whilst the police continue to rake up Green's death, especially as,
whilst in London with Mary, Anna visited the spot where he was killed.
And finally Downton Abbey S5 Ep 6, Violet has a new maid, Denker, who makes it clear to her what she
regards as the limitations of her duties. She accompanies Violet to see
Prince Kuragin with news of his wife's whereabouts but the dowager is
shocked when Kuragin reveals that he still loves her. An anonymous
letter to the police has them questioning Baxter as to whether John ever
went to London though she is unable to help. Aware that it was sent by
Barrow she is forgiving enough to take him to see Dr Clarkson, who tells
him that he cannot 'cure' his sexuality. Robert and Cora reconcile as
Robert accepts Mary and Tom's view that they should build decent houses
on Downton land whilst John convinces Anna that he did not kill Green.
An unused train ticket, evidence to support him, is however in the
pocket of a coat donated to charity. Edith learns that Michael Gregson
has been murdered by Fascist thugs and that she now owns his publishing
company. Most of the family attend a point to point race, where Blake
parades new girlfriend Mabel in front of Mary and Rose introduces
Atticus's aristocratic parents to the Crawleys. Edith uses the
opportunity to take Marigold and flee with her to London.
Only a few more episodes for this season.. can't wait to see how this all ends.
This was another good episode. In Fairy Tale land we are finding out more about Anna, we meet the Sorcerer's apprentice and I love that Rumple turns him into a mouse (very Disney). The date with Hook and Emma was cute. I'm not liking present day Rumple, he's up to no good and I hate that he is lying to Belle. I know he loves her but at some point it's all going to fall apart. I hope Hook can get away from Rumple and not follow in his footsteps.
I knew what the trees were doing after it was reveal that the sun was being wonky. Don't know why it took everyone else so long to figure it out. I enjoyed this episode for the most part. The doctor didn't really annoy me as much and was somewhat nice to Clara. Not an amazing episode but fun.
And the final TV episode I watched for the night was Doctor Who S8 Ep 11 "Dark Water" In the mysterious world of the Nethersphere, plans have been drawn. Old
friends and old enemies manoeuvre around The Doctor, and an impossible
choice is looming over him.
Now this was an amazing episode, Pink (Clara's boyfriend) dies and Clara loses it and forces the Doctor to help bring him back. Enter the mysterious Missy who we come to find out is none other then The Master or The Mistress (Missy for short). I had seen things online about who Missy was but I never though of the Master so this was a total OMG moment and I loved it. Can't wait to see how this storyline is resolved in the finale next week. It's going to be interesting as Pink will still be dead when it's all said and done.. I wonder what's going to happen to Clara.
A long but awesome day of TV watching.. and though I watched all those shows I still have a ton more to try watch soon. Luckily for me the holidays are coming up and alot of TV shows go on hiatus so I'll be able to fully catch up then.
