Tonight was the last ever episode of Valentine on The CW. It’s not as if I didn’t know this was coming, every additional episode that showed up on my PVR was a posthumous gift from the darling show. But what I didn’t expect was to already miss the show so much. It was always a […]

Absurd Moment of the Week

The enthusiastic disco number at the end of Valentine; complete with killer dance moves, obvious voice dubbing, quite a bit of swagger and a sprinkling of fairy dust!

Love Survives… for a little while

I don’t know how I managed to miss such crucial information but somehow I didn’t know that my favourite early cancellation of the season was making a reappearance on TV this summer.

Violets are Blue I watch Valentineand so should You. I don’t care what anyone says, I love Valentine. This week’s episode was yet another delightful hour full of warm fuzzies. And this week’s romantic hero? Possibly even more adorable than the 2 utterly adorable romantic heroes of the weeks before. The devoted best friend, Roland, […]

“all you need is Love”
  Kelly Bedard

Such is the principle sentiment of the CW’s new Sunday night show Valentine(which they finally posted online last night). It’s about time someone made a show about love. It’s not a show about sex or relationships or any of the other things most TV shows are about… it’s about love. And Gods. And Magic. And […]
