This post is part of The Favourite TV Show Episode Blogathon.

Black Magic was probably the first episode of The Bionic Woman that I ever saw and it remains one of my favourites. The plot is pretty typical for TBW. Jaime Sommers (Lindsay Wagner) is assigned a task to impersonate Tracy Carstairs, a member of the infamous Carstairs family. Jaime must find a top secret formula that the late Cyrus Carstairs (Vincent Price) planned to sell to the government. Unfortunately, there are others who want to find Cyrus’ formula just as bad. And Cyrus didn’t make finding it easy. He hid his belongings in his manor and now it’s up to his crooked relatives and employees to find them. This time Jaime has to use her special powers as well as her intelligence to solve the riddle and save the day.

This episode doesn’t actually have anything to do with black magic. I don’t know what the title refers to. The reason why I like this episode is that it has takes place in mysterious manor in the Louisiana swamp, there is an eery creature lurking in the manor and people disappear without a trace. And then there is the riddle to be solved. The miscellaneous group of characters are just perfect for this setting. There is Vincent Price in dual role as Cyrus and Manfred Carstairs. And who wouldn’t appreciate Vincent Price in a bit of a horror/mystery story? And then there’s ever so lovely Julie Newmar as Claudette Carstairs and Abe Vigoda as the butler. Great cast I would say. One thing that is lacking in Black Magic is Jaime and Oscar Goldman’s interaction. Oscar is not playing a major part in this story.

Not A Nice Guy

The second season of Sons of Anarchy is on SubTv. I’m not a fan, I tried to watch the first season for the sake of Johnny Lewis who I loved in The Sausage Factory. I couldn’t. Too much macho bullshit, not enough Johnny. However, I just have to watch the second season. One of the guest stars is none other than Henry Rollins! I watched the first episode and I am impressed. Henry plays this scary white supremacist who is trying to make life difficult for the motorcycle gang. And oh boy, can he deliver. I mean, he is so intense. Everything he’s ever done has been intense. The way he sings, writes, talks and acts… It is some heavy-duty stuff. It’s a good thing to know that in real life Henry is quite the opposite of his character AJ Weston.

Being Human Series 3 trailer:

I just know that series 3 is going to be amazing. Can’t wait. Mitch ❤

Being Human dvd coverSo, I watched the second series of Being Human a while back. Got to say, I absolutely loved it. What’s not to love about this show? A vampire, a werewolf and a ghost living together in Bristol, trying to lead normal lives… and failing. Compared to all those boring and/or childish supernatural themed films and tv shows out there *sigh* Being Human is a breath of fresh air. I thought I would never enjoy a vampire show after Buffy again. While the first BH series was lighter and funnier, the second series is darker and more serious in tone. Mitchell (the vampire), George (the werewolf) and Annie (the ghost) have to come to grips with their true supernatural nature and live with the consequences. Mitchell (Aidan Turner) gives a new meaning to “seductive brooding vampire”, he certainly is no Angel. Definitely drooling material… Series Three is being filmed as we speak in Cardiff. Can’t wait to see the results. First series had only six episodes, second had eight. Apparently third series will have eight as well. That is the only downside, too few episodes for (the always hungry for more) fan.
