[VIDEO] Whitney Watches: Teen Wolf: 5.01 & 5.02

Teen Wolf is back, with its fifth season – so I thought it was time I gave it the Whitney Watches treatment. This video covers the two part premiere- “Creatures of the Night” and “Parasomnia” So if you’re a fan, who’s watched the episodes – this series is my critical look at what’s going on. Granted, this episode is mostly recap, but it’s hard to really guess much about a season or talk about character arcs when you only have two episodes to base it on. Thoughts? I’d love to hear where you think this season’s going! Just leave me…

[Vlog] Whitney Watches: Agent Carter “The Blitzkrieg Button”

After taking a week off for the State of the Union, Agent Carter is back! Which means, it’s time for another vlog! (Which yes, I did film, edit and upload late at night. TheBoy was fast asleep next to me while I edited.) And let me tell you… this was a fantastic episode! I… eeee!!! It wrapped up one story line and opened the door for something so much bigger. And it tackled a lot of societal issues you don’t normally see in shows set post-WWII. So it looks like next week’s episode sets up the next direction the show’s…

[Video] Whitney Wears: 1940s Makeup Tutorial – How to get Peggy Carter’s look!

Finally! I ran into some setbacks (this was a new type of video for me, so lighting and setting it up was totally different), but here it is! As promised, here’s the full list of makeup and tools that I used in the video. L’oreal BB cream (as foundation), applied with bb Brush from H&M. NYX waterproof concealer Kat von D liquid eyeliner in black, fullsize (Mine was from a Sephora sampler.) Ofra eyebrow pencil in “universal” NYX eyebrow shaper. NYX bronze smokey eye look kit (which I got through ipsy, but their natural and adorable palettes are good for…

Whitney Watches: Agent Carter 1.03 “Time and Tide”

If it’s Wednesday, then it means it’s time for another edition of Whitney Watches! As a reminder, these videos are meant for regular viewers of the series – since I talk about current character arcs and where the show might be headed. It isn’t a recap video! So tell me, what are YOUR theories about what’s going to happen? Is mine all that crazy? Let me know in the comments, and if I get enough of them, I might just do a separate video since there isn’t a new episode next week. If you aren’t following these accounts already, you…

Whitney Watches: Agent Carter 1.01 & 1.02

It’s been far too long, but I’m back with another vlog – and it’s about Marvel’s Agent Carter – the 7 part television event (that’s a fancy name for mini-series) focusing on Peggy Carter. Last night’s two hour premiere was made up of two episodes, and the above video are my mostly coherent thoughts. I promise that next week I’ll have it more together- the Whitney Watches videos aren’t recaps, they’re meant more to talk about characterization, possible arcs and all the fun references. But I was overwhelmed by the awesomeness. If you missed last night’s episodes and didn’t DVR…

More thoughts about Bloodlines.

I know, I already posted a vlog about Bloodlines, but that was very much my on the fly opinion. But having given it a chance to sit, and being able to discuss it with a few people… I have a few more things that bothered me about the episode- a backdoor pilot for “Supernatural: Bloodlines.” When the show was first announced, the list of the main characters was comprised of men. It wasn’t until much later that they started to announce female characters. Which was a bit of a relief. Since Supernatural is such a male heavy show already- I…

[Vlog] Whitney Watches SPN 9.20 “Bloodlines”

That’s right- last night a new episode of Supernatural aired, and I am bringing you a short vlog about “Bloodlines” – the spin-off pilot for Supernatural: Bloodlines. For those who don’t click through, I didn’t go into how this episode fits into Season 9, because it doesn’t really. The story begins with one of the leads from Bloodlines, and the Winchesters show up and mostly play backup to the characters. And at the end, Dean gets a message from Cas which takes them out of Chicago and back into the main timeline. The main character, a human, is going to…

JJ, Where Are The Women?

As you’ve probably heard, Star Wars: Episode VII is starting to film, and the main cast list has been announced. And in that list, there’s only one new woman (the other is Carrie Fisher). What gives? Sure, there weren’t a lot of women in the Original Trilogy – the only main female character was Leia. And the only other real female characters of any importance were Aunt Beru and Mon Mothma. (I have a hard time counting Oola since her sole purpose was to dance around and then be eaten by the Rancor) But the Extended Universe happened. And while…

[Vlog] Whitney Watches SPN: 9.19 “Alex Annie Alexis Ann”

I thought I’d continue my Whitney Watches series, by tackling Supernatural next! Only I thought there were enough recap videos and websites, that maybe I could take a closer look at the series itself. Spoilers abound in the video, but please – watch it! What were your thoughts on the episode- what grade would you have given it? I want to know!

[Vlog] Whitney Watches Teen Wolf – 3.24 “The Divine Move”

It’s been awhile since I’ve recorded a Vlog, and it seemed like a good time to discuss one of my favorite TV shows, Teen Wolf! This week saw the end of Season 3B! This video is spoiler filled, but I’d love to hear what you think. Any other TV shows you want me to do video discussions for? (I plan on writing recaps for Supernatural.)
