The Shipping Room’s Top 10 Vampire Diaries ‘Ships

We’re celebrating The Vampire Diaries the best way we know how – ranking our favorite ‘ships!

In honor of the series finale of The Vampire Diaries, we decided to look back at the last 8 years and celebrate the best romances that the series had to offer!

There have been dozens of ‘ships who made their way into our hearts over the course of the series – and it wasn’t easy to narrow down our Top 10.

Does your favorite ‘ship make the cut? Tell us in the comments!

Misremembering Mickey: The problem in the ‘Shameless’ narrative

This week’s episode of Shameless, entitled ‘Ride or Die,’ marked a reunion fans have desperately been waiting for. For the first time in a year and a half, Mickey Milkovich and Ian Gallagher were back together — in every sense of those words. It was a beautiful episode for this couple who have had more than their fair share of ups and downs. The circumstances are not likely to lead to happily ever after, but it was exhilarating to see that the passion and chemistry between these two hasn’t waned during their time apart. I would say they picked up right where they left off, except the show seems to have forgotten where they left off. And why.

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life: A Shipper’s Perspective

So, here we are. We returned to Stars Hollow, we basked in the glow of our reunion with some of our favorite television characters, and we finally know how Amy Sherman-Palladino has always envisioned ending her beloved series.

There’s plenty to unpack as far as what this finale means for the Gilmore girls. Though many of us assumed the revival would bring much needed closure, the open-ended up-for-interpretation last few moments of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life may bring less clarity, not more.

We will spend a lot of time discussing all of our feelings about this reboot—and those last four words–in the upcoming episode of The Shipping Room Podcast, due for release at 12:01am on Friday 12/2. In the meantime, here’s a look at how this Thanksgiving weekend Gilmore binge is likely to have impacted the most dedicated shippers.

I just discovered ‘Eyewitness’ – Hurry up and do the same

 

In an age where great television can be consumed in a myriad of ways–on all the major networks, on basic cable, premium cable, streaming platforms, and YouTube–it’s impossible to watch everything. It’s hard to know why some shows break through the noise and catch on with audiences while others don’t. Certainly some of it is merit, but arguably some shows that find larger audiences don’t have as much to say as shows that struggle, and yet, they find themselves on air far longer than their meatier counterparts because their viewers show up week after week.
