Outlander
Father Fogden: He’s missing a hand. Will the bride mind?
Marsali: I will not.

You know, it’s funny. People keep asking, “What do you need? What do you need?” I need for you to not be gone. Here, honey, I want you to have something. It was my mother’s. Makes sense you should have it. Lord knows you’ve been eyeing it for years. Honey, I’m not going with you to the cemetery, so don’t get mad, okay? I just can’t watch ’em put you in the ground. I have to remember you my way. So, if it’s alright, I’m just gonna sit here with you for a while. Te amo, Mommy.

These are my favorite quotes from the past two weeks, mostly from shows currently on the air, but also other random things I happen to be watching.

Star Trek: Discovery
Captain Lorca: Starfleet didn’t start this war.

Maze: I’m great at dismembering humans. How hard can it be to fix one?

8 Returning Fall Shows…

Summer television is always fun (and if you did not watch The Bold Type, you should get on that), but I am very excited for my Fall shows to return. Here are the ones that I am most excited about.

1. Outlander, season 3 premieres September 10 on Starz, stars Sam Heughan, Caitroina Balfe, Tobias Menzes, Sophie Skelton, and Richard Rankin. At the end of season 2, Jamie was about to head into the Battle of Culloden, so he sent Claire and their unborn child back through the stones, where she was reunited with Frank. I have read the third book, I know what is going to happen (for the most part), and I am still so excited for this to start. Each season the story and performances get better and better.



2. The Good Place, season 2 premieres September 20 on NBC, stars Kristen Bell, Ted Danson, William Jackson Harper, Jameela Jamil, D’Arcy Carden, and Manny Jacinto. If you did not watch the first season of this show, go do it immediately. It is hilarious. I have now watched it three times. I do not want to ruin anything for anyone who has not watched it, but I am very excited to see how they move forward going into season two. I also just need more Janet in my life.



3. Lethal Weapon, season 2 premieres September 26 on Fox, stars Clayne Crawford, Damon Wayans, Keesha Sharp, Kevin Rahm, Michelle Mitchenor, Jordana Brewster, Johnathan Fernandez, Richard Cabral, Dante Brown, and Chandler Kinney. I have to admit, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the first season of this show. I figured it would be a pretty cut and dry cop show, but it was a lot more fun. I am very much looking forward to more adventures with Riggs and Murtaugh.



4. Lucifer, season 3 premieres October 2 on Fox, stars Tom Ellis, Lauren German, Lesley-Ann Brandt, Rachael Harris, Kevin Alejandro, D.B. Woodside, Aimee Garcia, Tricia Helfer, Scarlett Estevez, and Tom Welling. Last season ended with Lucifer waking up alone in the desert having had his wings restored. The new season will pick up right where we left off. Lucifer is trying to figure out how he got his wings back, a human Charlotte is putting her life back together, and newcomer Marcus Pierce shows up as a Lieutenant in the LAPD. One of the reasons that I love this show so much is that it really leans in to the ridiculous premise of a crime-solving demon. What can I say? The Devil is charming and sexy.

Quotes of the Week: May 14-27

These are my favorite quotes from the past two weeks, mostly from shows currently on the air, but also other random things I happen to be watching.

The White Princess
Dowager Queen Elizabeth: What will you say to God when you see him? How will you explain all that blood on your hands?

American Gods
Zorya: You believe in nothing, so you have nothing.

Mr. Wednesday: So you didn’t believe ’til you did, and then the world changed because you believed.

Supergirl
Cat: I can imagine that you’re feeling afraid, and feeling like your world is spinning out of control but believe me, you have a power. And right now, you have a job to do. Resist. Resist these invaders with everything you’ve got. They come with empty promises and closed fists. They promise to make our world great again, and yet they know nothing about the people who make this world great. They think they can con us. And if that doesn’t work, what, they’re going to beat us into submission? They have no idea who they’re up against. Aliens and humans, we need to band together, and we need to stand up and fight back. Everyone needs to be a superhero. Everyone needs to get up and say, ‘Not in my house!’ Let’s prove to these thugs that we are strong, and we’re united, and we are not going to be conquered.

Lucifer
Linda: You’re trying to Parent Trap God and the Divine Goddess?!

Jane the Virgin
Rafael: When I think of family, you’re who I see.

Brockmire

Joe Buck: I am in the bathroom right now.
Jim: Ah, just answer the question, Joe.
Joe Buck: I was born in Florida. Of course I’ve had a finger in my ass.
Jim: Then you know what it’s like to be in love, Joe Buck.

12 Monkeys
Jones: My friend’s friend is no more trustworthy than my enemy’s enemy.

Jennifer: Okay, egg, listen up. You’re gonna see something weird. Don’t be scared, okay?
Young Jennifer: Okay, chicken.

Jones: No god shall forgive us this sin. Perhaps none should. For that, all we have is each other.

Athan: The history I’ve seen is one of great women sung badly by clumsy men.

Deacon: It’s the beginning.
Jennifer: The beginning of the end.

Quotes of the Week: April 30-May 13

These are my favorite quotes from the past two weeks, mostly from shows currently on the air, but also other random things I happen to be watching.

Capheus: Many terrible things happen every day. They have happened to me, to my family. It’s why courage is so important. It takes courage to see such terrible things happen and still get up every day, and be able to see what is still beautiful. It takes courage to remember that this is a world where our dreams, like our grandmothers’, do come true.

Doctor Who
Doctor: You’re being cheerful. I’m against cheerful.

These are my favorite quotes from the past two weeks, mostly from shows currently on the air, but also other random things I happen to be watching.

Black Sails
Billy: There are no two people close enough that something cannot separate them.

Max: I said no to Madam Guthrie’s plan, despite having no alternative, and at the risk of losing the entire endeavor, because I refuse to situate a man in a position where he might interfere one day with my ability to repair things with you. You are the bravest person I have ever known. The truest person I have ever known. And I betrayed you and it sickens me. I am so sorry for working so hard to protect the wrong things. For failing to see that there is nothing important that does not include you.

Jane the Virgin
Xiomara: If you mean, ‘Hands off. I’ve got cobwebs down there’? Then, yeah, that’s the vibe you’ve been throwing.

The Flash
Barry: Look, I don’t know who you are…obviously someone who’s quick with a knife.

Blindspot
Patterson: You lied to me. You betrayed me. You destroyed me.

Tangled: The Series
Cassandra: Rapunzel, I want to trust you, and I trust that you trust Eugene, but *I* don’t trust Eugene, and if I can’t trust Eugene, I can’t trust you, and you’re just going to have to trust me! …Trust me, that logic tracks.

Grace and Frankie
Frankie: Nobody doesn’t need Kenny Loggins!

Saul: Those people fucked with the wrong bored old man!

Jasper: What? With who?

Quotes of the Week: November 20-December 3

These are my favorite quotes from the past two weeks, mostly from shows currently on the air, but also other random things I happen to be watching. I thought that, with the holiday, I would not have as many. Clearly, I was wrong.

This Is Us
Olivia: How does it feel to be dying?
William: It feels… like all these beautiful pieces of life are flying around me and… I’m trying to catch them. When my granddaughter falls asleep in my lap, I try to catch the feeling of her breathing against me. And when I make my son laugh, I try to catch the sound of him laughing. How it rolls up from his chest. But the pieces are moving faster now, and I can’t catch them all. I can feel them slipping through my fingertips. And soon, where there used to be my granddaughter breathing and my son laughing, there will be… nothing.
Olivia: Oh.
William: I know it feels like you have all the time in the world. But you don’t. So, stop playing it so cool. Catch the moments of your life. Catch them while you’re young and quick. Because sooner than you know it, you’ll be old and slow. And there’ll be no more of them to catch. And when a nice boy who adores you offers you pie, say thank you.

No Tomorrow
Kareema: I can’t believe you’re doing work that isn’t actual work just to try to get a job and have more work.

Mary Anne: I couldn’t decide if I should drink or take a bath, so I’m kinda doin’ both.
