Earlier this evening I watched the Super Bowl Halftime with my family. OMG, being a long-time Coldplay fan, it was plain spectacular! The band (with Beyonce and Bruno Mars) did a phenomenal performance that was also aesthetically pleasing. Hey, I mean, that’s what I expect from one of my favorite musicians; their concerts are always so… just… awesome. And the Super Bowl gave every audience member, near and far, that sense.
This week on Promos & Trailers (P&T) is another week where things are just continuing, TV show wise–EXCEPT Castle will be back on Mondays at 10P (ET)! I’m also excited to see the movies that premiere this Valentine’s Day weekend. I mean, come on guys: Deadpool is the ultimate date movie (*wink*)
Honestly, I don’t know much about Deadpool canon, beyond random posts on Tumblr with him hanging with Spidey and outwitting bad guys in an extremely sarcastic nature. However, it was love at first sight. And I am definitely headed to this movie this weekend. Plus, he’s Marvel. And I will always go to a new Marvel movie. Always.
Director: Tim Miller
Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Gina Carano, Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Ed Skrein
Plot: Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) is a former Special Forces operative who now works as a mercenary. His world comes crashing down when the evil Ajax (Ed Skrein) tortures, disfigures and transforms him into Deadpool. The rogue experiment leaves Deadpool with accelerated healing powers and a twisted sense of humor. With help from mutant allies Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand) and Colossus (Stefan Kapicic), Deadpool uses his new skills to hunt down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
Oh lord. I was practically raised on Zoolander so there’s no doubt in my mind: I’m going. I have to visit my lifelong friends: Derek Zoolander and Hansel. (Hansel’s my faaaave…*hugs*) Bonus points: Ben Stiller directed Zoolander 2. Ever since I watched Secret Life of Walter Mitty (one of my favorite movies of all time that he directed), I will always go see a Ben Stiller-directed movie.
Director: Ben Stiller
Cast: Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Penelope Cruz, Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig.
Plot: Models Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and Hansel (Owen Wilson) must stop a conspiracy to kill the world’s most beautiful people.

Downton Abbey @9P – PBS (ET)
Well, good news, friends, is that Lord Grantham is alive and well! Yes, we’re still on the drama train (as with every Downton episode) but at least he didn’t die. That, absolutely, would’ve been crushing. Hope he’s out of the clear. Also I’m beginning to feel sympathy for Barrow… which is… understandable… but weird.
Mercy Street @ 10P – PBS(ET)
Now this is a show I haven’t mentioned before but is due for a recommendation. Mom and I have been watching it for a few weeks now and each time it keeps getting better and better. For any of you history buffs out there who love Civil War era (especially Union vs Confederate drama with some slavery themes mixed in), it’s definitely a good show to check out. Also it’s based off of actual events and diary accounts of what went on inside this Union hospital.

CASTLE!!! @10P – ABC (ET)
Ahhhh! You guys! Castle is finally back! This is the TV show I am most excited about this week. I always love watching what new antics Caskett gets into (especially Rick since I aim to have a similar writing career as him–that and we’re personality twins). But OMG Castle fans! I’m so excited to see our beloved couple back together again! AHH!

Supernatural @ 9P – CW (ET)
I mean, yeah, let’s face it guys and dolls, I’m a Hunter through and through. So Supernatural’s going to be on each Promos & Trailers post. I look forward to it every week. This week’s promo cracks me up though. Things are getting pretty hot and heavy for the boys this Valentine’s day (*wink*)
Criminal Minds @ 9P (ET) – CBS
Whoa… just whoa… so I just came across this article when looking into 11×14’s “Hostage.” Apparently the BAU hunts down a man who is kidnapping little girls, and the episode itself is based off of the kidnappings that took place in Cleveland — it especially reflects the story of Amanda Berry and Ariel Castro. Well, I mean, the episodes of Criminal Minds are all based on true stories, in some form or another, so it’s no wonder this story was going to come up. Just… wow though. I mean, that case was all the news stations here in Northeast Ohio. So I’m curious to see how the story compares, and how this episode is. Kids in horror stories are creepy as hell.
