The Plopper is Forced to Say Goodbye to COVERT AFFAIRS


TVLine: "There was a feeling in [the S5 finale] that the characters are growing up and reaching their natural end point with Annie contemplating marriage and Auggie leaving the CIA.  Would you be happy if this was the ending?"

Chris Ord: "No, we wouldn't be happy.  We want the show to continue."  (Via TVLine)

----------------

Well, Covert Crew, we are now living our Darkest Timeline.  And sadly, it's the only timeline we're gonna get.

THE 2014 THINGS IN VISUAL MEDIA AWARDS!



[INSERT AWESOME BANNER HERE... ehh screw it]

Last year I wrote an extensive list of my favorite, and least favorite, of 2013… and then never posted it. Why? Because.

Anyway, these are my favorite things of 2014… they may not be yours. That’s cool. I don’t like things so you’ll think I’m awesome. I like them because no one else is going to enjoy my life more than me.

The Plopper Reviews COVERT AFFAIRS 5.16 'Gold Soundz' & Season 5


Christ.  If I could write my season finale review solely in emojis tonight, I would.  It's the only way I can properly express how I'm feeling right now.  It's all over the goddamn place.

"Trust your heart."  -Auggie
"Get it?  She literally cannot trust her heart.  I see what you did there, writers.  You think you're so clever."  -Katie (cousin of The Plopper)

The Plopper Reviews COVERT AFFAIRS 5.15 'Frontwards'


Well, that was a squeaker.  I spent the first 40 minutes of this one feeling increasingly exasperated thinking that this ep was going to amount to nothing more than Team McWalkerson running around a pretty place (Buenos Aires being their final foreign shoot for season 5), trying to figure out how to rescue a character we only met one episode ago.  Like I said, I'm a fan of Kenny Johnson, but that can only carry me so far, given that his character is not at all central to this series.

The Plopper Reviews COVERT AFFAIRS 5.14 'Transport is Arranged'


For some odd reason, USA decided not to release any promo pics for ep 5.14.  So I had to go scrounging through social media for a pic for this review.  If they're gonna make me jump through hoops, then Barber and Joan are gonna get the headline treatment today.  Aww Barber.  He was so cute, all sad and anxious for his beloved BFF.  I still feel like Barberson is kind of a unidirectional relationship (Barber mostly gives, Auggie mostly takes), but I don't have time to analyze it now.  I just re-read that sentence and suddenly it sounds sexual.  Oh well, I'm letting it stand.
