GOTHAM SEASON 4 EPISODE 7 AND 8!!!!!!!!

Gotham has been scary lately. There’s the psycho killer named Pyg who wears a severed pig head over his face, and then puts severed pig heads over his victims’ heads. And there’s Butch, who came back from the dead as Solomon Grundy (someone on Twitter dubbed him ZOMBIE BUTCH!!!!! Patchy likes that!!!!). And then there’s Stabby Babs who has been acting CREEPY all season, ever since she died and Ra’s Al Ghul brought her back to life… and speaking of Ra’s, Bruce MURDERED old Ra’s to avenge his parents and ever since then, he’s been WHACKED OUT OF HIS EVER LOVING MIND.

EDIT: So technically Patchy got all confused and he got two episodes mixed up here. Whatever. Until this Pyg guy is gone, Patchy won’t be paying very close attention to Gotham. It is what it is.

KEVIN PROBABLY SAVES THE WORLD SEASON 1 EPISODE 6!!!!!!

Last week ended with a CLIFFHANGER!!!!!! Patchy hates cliffhangers. Luckily, Patchy and Patchette didn’t watch until Saturday night, so we didn’t have to wait a WHOLE WEEK to see how it resolved!!!!! SPOILERS AFTER THE JUMP!!!! (more…)

KEVIN PROBABLY SAVES THE WORLD SEASON 1 EPISODES 4 AND 5!!!!!!!!

So last week’s was the episode of Kevin Probably Saves the World that came on Halloween night. Patchy missed it because Patchy and Patchette had this little Halloween party thing going on. We watched The Haunting on Turner Classic Movies!!!!! Such a great movie and IT GAVE PATCHETTE NIGHTMARES. Ugh. Good luck getting Patchette to ever watch anything scary again.

Patchy and Patchette watched this episode of Kevin Probably Saves the World on Saturday night because Halt and Catch Fire is not on anymore and it won’t ever be on again because the show got cancelled. BOOOOOO!!!!!! Also… Patchy forgot to blog the episode before this because… well… Patchy didn’t feel much like blogging. Patchy’s sorry… Patchy’s not a very good TV blogging zombie.

Anyway, these were BIG EPISODES for Kevin, Yvette, Reese, and Amy…

Gotham Season 4 Episode 6

Patchy has a confession to make. Ever since Halt and Catch Fire went off the air, Patchy’s had NO INTEREST in blogging. Patchy thought it was a phase. It’s not. BUT… Patchy’s gonna get through this thing. Patchy’s sorry he hasn’t blogged in a couple of weeks, but Patchy’s planning a blogging marathon today!!!!!

Patchy has other favorite shows. Like GOTHAM!!!! And Patchy loves Gotham because Gotham is crazy. And Patchy means crazy in a GOOD way, not another ruined Thanksgiving dinner because someone showed up drunk and mouthed off and challenged Patchy to a knife fight crazy.

Someone recently blogged that Gotham is predictable… PREDICTABLE!? Patchy’s not sure what kind of TV shows they’v been watching if they think Gotham is predictable. Granted, Patchy’s not the smartest zombie, but Gotham always catches Patchy by surprise.

KEVIN PROBABLY SAVES THE WORLD SEASON 1 EPISODE 3!!!!!!!!

So now Patchy needs to FIX HIS BRAIN MISTAKE and write about Kevin Probably Saves the World!!!!!

HALT AND CATCH FIRE SEASON 4 EPISODE 10!!!!!! IT’S OVER

Halt and Catch Fire AMC Season 4 PromoThis is the last time Patchy ever gets to write a blog post about a new episode of Halt and Catch Fire. BUT… this probably won’t be the last time Patchy blogs about Halt and Catch Fire. Patchy’s thinking VERY SERIOUSLY about going back and blogging EVERY EPISODE sometime when new TV shows are slow, like summer.

That’s how much Patchy loves this show.

Normally Patchy recaps everything that happened and tries to tie things back to previous seasons in an attempt to figure out what’s going to happen next. But these are the LAST TWO EPISODES and there is no next. Halt and Catch Fire is gone, and Patchy HATES saying goodbye.

What this show gave us were forty episodes that tell a very powerful story. Now that it’s over, Patchy thinks it’s PERFECT. But Patchy can’t say EXACTLY why until the end of this blog because… that would be a SPOILER and, as Patchy’s loyal readers know, spoilers go AFTER THE JUMP… but this isn’t the jump yet.

What Patchy realized is that Cameron’s game Pilgrim is a metaphor for the whole show. See, people didn’t like Cameron’s game because they couldn’t figure it out. It would send the player back to the beginning to try again. Joe even called and asked Cam about it and she said to think of it as going back to the start with all the information you gained. Time after time after time, the characters on the show would repeat the same story over and over and over. It was a loop. They’d start companies only to watch the companies fail. They’d try to seize and opportunity only to be derailed by an unexpected surprise. Just when the end goal was in sight, they’d be blindsided by LIFE and forced to start over.

Halt and Catch Fire was about people. It was about each character’s struggles to find themselves.

The show was about figuring out life.

Patchy’s not good at life. Not at all.

Halt and Catch Fire helped Patchy understand himself better and it helped Patchette understand herself better and it helped us both understand each other better. Patchy don’t know what else to say, that’s POWERFUL stuff!!!! And now it’s over, and that’s okay. Even if this isn’t the ending that the creators saw from the very beginning, the whole series is PERFECT.

Now, Patchy was sad and upset when it first ended because Patchy didn’t like the end, but some very kind people on Twitter spent A LONG TIME explaining the end to Patchy and Patchy started feeling a lot better about it… and then… PATCHY HAD A REVELATION!!!! All at once, Patchy understood the ending. And it took a lot of reading and it took a lot of thinking and Patchy can’t wait to explain what he thinks about the ending!!!!! But first, let’s talk about the final episode EVER of one of televisions GREATEST TELEVISION SHOWS!!!!!

SPOILERS AFTER THE JUMP (more…)

HALT AND CATCH FIRE SEASON 4 EPISODE 9!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Halt and Catch Fire AMC Season 4 Promo

Halt and Catch Fire ended with two episodes back-to-back. Patchy’s going to break them into TWO blog posts because these were officially two episodes, with different directors. Episode 9 is called search, and it sets everything up for THE END. But it isn’t the end, not yet.

The end is coming, but this is not it.

KEVEN PROBABLY SAVES THE WORLD EPISODES 1 & 2!!!!!!!

Patchy watches a LOT of television shows but most of the shows Patchy loves most are shows like Halt and Catch Fire or Better Call Saul, all you get in a year is TEN EPISODES!!!! And with Halt and Catch Fire, they only showed the final season for EIGHT WEEK!!!! THAT’S ALL!!!! The other FORTY-FOUR WEEKS OF THIS YEAR are Halt and Catch Fire-less. And there will never be another year with Halt and Catch Fire because the show is ended and Patchy had to say goodbye to it.

Patchy does not like goodbyes. They make Patchy sad.

BUT… what makes Patchy happy is finding a NEW SHOW to say HELLO to!!!!! And Patchy’s FAVORITE NEW SHOW is called Kevin Probably Saves the World!!!! And… the truth is, Patchy wasn’t even gonna watch it, but Patchy was SO SAD over what happened in episode 7 of Halt and Catch Fire this season that Patchy thought Kevin Probably Saves the World might cheer Patchy up. AND IT DID!!!!!! It really did.
