To celebrate the final episode of the fourth season of Venice the Series, I finally got around to posting the recaps for Episodes 10 and 11! Don't forget to catch the finale later today.

But for now, catch up here with the recaps: Episode 10 and Episode 11.
It's recap time!

Episode 9 is here. It's queer and full of cheer. Not! This season remains a parade of angst and (characters') bad decisions, but it's still good drama!

Check it out here if you haven't already and you can find your Episode 9 recap right over here.
Oh hai. Disappeared for four weeks, I did. Talk like Yoda for this whole thing I will not.

So I could give a litany of excuses and good reasons why I’m three – almost four! – weeks behind on this whole recap shenanigan situation, but I think I’ll just skip it and not bore you guys with the details. Suffice it to say there were reasons. It wasn’t just my usual lazy procrastination. And with that on to the recaps!

Episode Five

Episode Six

Episode Seven

Episode Eight

I will say that of these four episodes, episode 6 and episode 7 are probably my favorites of the season so far. Things that have been building for several season now come to a head and it's satisfying and frustrating in equal measures. And 5 and 8 aren't bad themselves. I'm just saying, if you haven't checked out this season of Venice yet, you should. It's well worth your time (and small amount of money).
...Only it was two days ago, so that's totally different.

With no further ado, I give you might slightly manic and crazy thoughts for today's Venice the Series episode, this being the fourth of the season.

Venice the Series: Season 4, Episode 4 Recap and Commentary.

But mainly, I can't not say, what the heck were you thinking, Gina? I'll leave at that so as not to spoil, but seriously. Must. Watch.

Go now!
Now live! That only took forever.

I was reminded a minute ago as I put in the title of this post how down right amazing it is that this show even exists, let alone has four full seasons so far. It seemed like a pipe dream when Crystal Chappell started talking in interviews about wanting to do her own web series. I would never have imagined that it could get this big and be this successful. It's a testament to the fans of Guiding Light who loved Otalia so much, and to the people who never even watched Guiding Light but got sucked in by something good. It's even more a testament to Ms. Chappell's talent, determination and appreciation for her fans.

I just wanted to take a minute to remember that and to appreciate it. My complaint when I was figuring out that I was gay, was that there was so little media, especially television and movies, that portrayed lesbians in a positive light and with a happy ending. I don't know if Venice is going to have a happy ending, and I sure as hell hope we don't find out soon, but I do love knowing that I don't have to worry about seeing negative, discriminatory views of gays and lesbians portrayed as the right way of thinking when I sit down to watch an episode of Venice. Love is love is love. Even when it makes me want to pull my hair out.

After a year and a half, we finally have new Venice! It picks up right where it left off with Owen and scissors! Check it out for yourself and then come check out my thoughts on this first episode. I'll be discussing Venice over there all season long.

Venice, Season 3, Episode 11, Recap

I can't believe the penultimate episode of the season is here already! It feels like just yesterday that this season started and the day before that when we (or I!) were all wondering if Venice would even happen at all. And this season has not disappointed in the slightest. The cast is AMAZING, the scenery - and show - is jaw-droppingly gorgeous and the plot is rich and full of vivid bright emotion that pulls me in...just to stun me with a laugh in the next instant.

So check it out: Episode 11.
Venice, Season 3, Episode 10 Recap

The train's picking up momentum, y'all. I think it's going to be blasting through sunny Venice for the rest of this season, leaving havoc, destruction and a complete and total shift in the way of things in its wake. We've got sooooo many things happening and the acting is dare I say it, phenomenal. There was a moment in the end that made me want to howl at the screen as the Venice logo came back up. Because it was just that good and just that frustrating. 

I want MOAR. And isn't that always a sign of the best shows? 
Venice, Season 3, Episode 9 Recap

I've heard some people say that this episode fell flat for them; the comedy didn't work; they didn't like it. And that's fine. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. There have been a few bits of humor in earlier episodes that didn't work for me either, so I get it. But for all the people out there that this episode didn't work for, I'm really sorry. Because I found this one laugh out loud hilarious. Which was a little unfortunate because I was holed up in the college library with my laptop and backpack that weighed enough to take down an eight grader. Booming with laughter while falling out of my chair would have been a tad conspicuous is what I'm saying. I'm pretty sure I almost sprained something trying to hold it all in. Hopefully you found it as funny and hopefully you didn't have to hold it in. 

I hope the recap brings you almost as much amusement and thank you all for bearing with our support of the Sopa related blackout yesterday. That thing needs to be gone - yesterday - and take Pipa with it.
