The Magicians

Quotes of the Week: March 6-12

These are my favorite quotes from the past week, not just from shows currently on the air, but also other random things I happen to be watching.

House of Cards

Quotes of the Week: February 28-March 5

These are my favorite quotes from the past week, not just from shows currently on the air, but also other random things I happen to be watching.

Supergirl
Siobhan: I’m sorry, I have difficulty making conversation with men under six feet tall.

The Magicians
Mayakovsky: Why are you both so determined to be so fucking bland?

Lucifer
Linda: God cast you out because He needed you to do the most difficult of jobs. It was a gift.
Lucifer: Gift? He shunned me. He vilified me. He made me a torturer! Can you even begin to fathom what it was like? Eons spent providing a place for dead mortals to punish themselves? I mean, why do they blame me for all their little failings? As if I’d spent my days sitting on their shoulder, forcing them to commit acts they’d otherwise find repulsive. “Oh, the Devil made me do it!” I have never made any one of them do anything. Never.
Linda: What happened to you in unfair.
Lucifer: Unfair? This is unjust! For all eternity, my name will be invoked to represent all their depravity. That is the gift that my Father gave me!

Lost Girl
Aife: Bach sounds delightful…as long as it’s followed by Sir Mix-a-Lot.

Trick: Always remember, you’re my blood too.

Blindspot
Patterson: Yes, you can for sure maintain enough air speed. I did the math.
Fischer: How? Where?
Patterson: In my head, where math is done. Please, don’t interrupt.

New Girl
Schmidt: Don’t tell me what to do! I’m her fiancé, not some schnook off the street eating a peanut butter cookie!

Reagan: I hope that the Chicago Cubs win the World Series while you’re in a coma

Agent Carter
Howard: Jarvis, you just hit a woman with my car!
Jarvis: I know, sir.
Howard: She’s a 2-time Oscar nominee!
Jarvis: Miss Frost is quite resilient. She’s fine. Trust me.

Howard: If she weren’t a homicidal maniac, I’d be in love.

Howard: What am I doing wrong, Jarvis?
Jarvis: We are standing before an incomprehensible rip in the fabric of our world. Use a 7-iron.

Anna: They do say that opposites attract.
Lady Mary: Yes, they attract. But do they live happily ever after?

Castle
Beckett: Be charming, but not too charming.
Castle: That’s like asking Superman not to be too super.

Quotes of the Week: January 31-February 6

These are my favorite quotes from the past week, not just from shows currently on the air, but also other random things I happen to be watching.

Galavant
Galavant: I didn’t tell you to die in a brown fart. The truth is, all I’ve wanted is to come back to you. You’re the love of my life. And if we survive this, I want to marry you. And I want to live by the sea…
Isabella: You had me at “brown fart.”

Richard: What? I’m singing a duet with my inner child.

Shameless
Sean: I’m a naturally helpful person.
Fiona: Must be tiring.
Sean: It is *utterly* exhausting.

Downton Abbey
Violet: When we unleash the dogs of war, we must go where they take us!

Isabelle: You will stop at nothing to get your own way. Isn’t that the truth?
Violet: Indeed. It is a quality I share with Marlborough, Wellington, and my late mother. I was trained in a hard school, and I *fight* accordingly.

Supergirl
Kara: Except for the fact that she talks like Cookie Monster, she is exactly like me.

Jane the Virgin
Lina: Look natural. Sexy natural.

The Magicians
Quentin: I don’t know what happened.

Barry and Caitlin: Felicity Smoak.
Cisco: What is wrong with you two? That’s not friendship.

Schmidt: We’ve always done everything together. I’m just worried that we’re gonna drift apart. You know, I’m gonna get married and have kids, and you’re gonna be wandering around the grocery store holding a bottle of scotch and an ear of corn.

Nick: If I can’t have a kid with a woman, maybe I’ll have one with my cousin.

Quotes of the Week: January 24-30

These are my favorite quotes from the past week, not just from shows currently on the air, but also other random things I happen to be watching.

Galavant
Wormwood: Oh, Gareth, you’re smiling. Sorry, could you stop it? I just find it deeply unsettling.

Richard: I just can’t believe he’s dead.
Roberta: Does seem awfully early in the season for something like this.
Sid: Could he be mostly dead? But not all dead, ’cause mostly dead is slightly alive?
Neo: Yeah, that’s not a thing.

Downton Abbey
Edith: I suppose Cousin Isabelle is entitled to put up an argument.
Violet: Of course she is! She’s just not entitled to win it!

Violet: I haven’t been in the kitchens in at least twenty years.
Isabelle: Have you got your passport?

Supergirl
Kara: If you hate bigots more than aliens, then, why are you giving Senator Crane so much attention? She’s horrible.
Cat: Because, Kira, while bigots will always take the gold on the medal podium of my contempt, they make excellent click-bait. Also, the more they talk the more they sabotage themselves. It’s a magical implosion happening right before our very eyes.

Alex: There’s no shame in surviving.

Cat: I never got to put a picture that you’d drawn on the fridge. I never got to tell you stories. And I never got to teach you how not to be afraid of the world. And I never got to tell you how amazing I think you are. I never got to be your mom, but I am your biggest fan.

Jane the Virgin
Alba: Poor Manuel, living in the closet for so long. I’m glad he found his authentic life. I have a gay friend at church, and he explained everything to me.

Telenovela
James: I know I come on strong, okay? I’m just an all-in kinda guy. I’m all-in on love. I’m all-in on work. I’m all-in on Law & Order, I’ll tell you that much. Man, I have seen every single episode, including all the spin-offs. That’s like a thousand hours of television! Oh my good God, maybe I do go a little overboard.

8 New Mid-Season Shows…

Two lists in one week?! Craziness! I wanted to get this up before the first show premieres tomorrow, but could not do it while I was home in Philadelphia last week. There are a few premiere dates that have not yet been released, so keep checking here for updates.

1. The Shannara Chronicles premieres January 5th on MTV, stars Austin Butler, Manu Bennett, Poppy Drayton, Ivana Baquero, Aaron Jakubenko, Emilia Burns, Marcus Vanco, Brooke Williams, and John Rhys-Davies. This show is based on Terry Brooks’ best-selling fantasy books about a series of adventures, war, and evil that occur throughout the history of these Four Lands. Visually, it looks fantastic and, with Jon Favreau as one of the executive producers, I have very high expectations.



2. Second Chance premieres January 13th on Fox, stars Rob Kazinsky, Tim DeKay, Dilshad Vadsaria, Adhir Kalyan, Vanessa Lengies, Ciara Bravo, and Philip Baker Hall. In this modern version of Frankenstein, a billionaire and a bioengineer bring a dead police officer back to life. After a few title changes, I am a little nervous about this one, but the concept seems interesting and I like the cast, so I will give it a try. The first episode is already on the Fox website if you want to watch it early.



3. Legends of Tomorrow premieres January 21st on The CW, stars Caity Lotz, Brandon Routh, Arthur Darvill, Ciara Renée, Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Falk Hentschel, Franz Drameh, Casper Crump, Peter Francis James, and Victor Garber. White Canary, The Atom, Firestorm, Captain Cold, Heat Wave, Hawkgirl and Hawkman are all recruited by time-traveler Rip Hunter to prevent an impending apocalypse. I already live inside of Greg Berlanti’s brain, so I am very excited about this Arrow and The Flash spin-off.



4. Lucifer premieres January 25th on Fox, stars Tom Ellis, Lesley-Ann Brandt, Lauren German, D.B. Woodside, Kevin Alejandro, and Rachael Harris. Bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell, Lucifer leaves his throne in the underworld and comes to Los Angeles and starts running a nightclub. He soon must decide if he will let himself be drawn to the light or be pulled back into darkness. I have really enjoyed Ellis’s previous roles and am interested to see what he does with this DC Comics character.
