I predict that Once Upon a Time will not be renewed after this season, while Blood & Oil will be cancelled soon. Quantico is great, however!
I tried, I wanted to love it, and I just can't get into it. I don't care that much about the characters, and the writing is okay at best. Too many inconsistencies and nonsensical things (i.e. the bathtub and the fact that the apartment seemed to grow in size since last episode, or the fact that Hap can't recognize his own son's eyes). Bummer, because the premise is great!
Yeah, most likely. Not that I see any real evidence of what on earth they did with the $37K. Let's hope they manage to stretch the $1million a bit further than they did when buying all of two washers and two dryers with $37K ;-)
That I understood. What I didn't understand is why Cody got upset when Billy said they "borrowed" the money. I am presuming that Billy bought the backhoe on a credit card (putting down an initial $10K), and that Cody was concerned they might now actually be able to pay it back?
Agreed. I don't do well with things that just do not make sense. I mean, I know it's television, but the premise and story can't be totally nonsensical. Even on sci-fi/fantasy shows, everything that happens needs to make sense within that world that was created. Otherwise, it loses some credibility and just becomes unbelievable. Random plot points that go unexplained, weird dialogue that does not fit into the story, characters that are introduced and never seen again or have no real purpose...it all makes for bad television! I hope that the next episode is a bit better written and that the story improves. I mean, Chase Crawford is about the only thing bringing me back for episode #2 ;-)
Right?! I mean, who straps their ENTIRE business plan into the back of truck? Were the just going to show up with some washers and dryers, try to find a place to rent, hook them up, and they're good to go?
I don't know about this one. I was really looking forward to it, as it reminded me of "Dirty Sexy Money" (canceled way too soon) or "Dallas". The problem for me was that the plot was not explained well, and the dialogue was forced. The first thing that threw me off, like Christine pointed out, was the two washers and two dryers in the truck. Their family gave them $37K to start a business, and that's all they bought? Where did the rest of the money go..I mean, they couldn't even afford a hotel! Cody acquiring a job at the pharmacy was rushed, and she jumped to a lot of conclusions upon overhearing the Brigg's realtor on the phone. And just what DID Billy do exactly that got him that $75K in cash? The story-line could have been spread over a couple of episodes, and explained in better detail. It worked out too neatly, too quickly, and without much explanation. It seemed rushed with the purpose of getting to the plot of money and evil and deception. Plus, I am not feeling the chemistry between Cody and Billy. Their conversations seem ad-libbed and fake. I am giving this one only another episode before I decide if it stays on the recordings list!
I felt like they were ad libbing half of their lines. The interactions were so strange and cringe-worthy at times. I didn't get the chemistry, or lack thereof, at all...
Who do you think the killer is? Why?I originally thought it was Dean Munsch, but Caralynn has a really good point about Melanie Dorkuss! Who will die next?I'm good with the numerical Chanels dying.. What was your favorite Chanel Oberlin one-liner? Or your favorite one-liner from the episode in general?It was something like "You're so confident without being mean...what anti-depressants do you take?"
What did you think of the tone? Too campy? Not campy enough?I didn't go into the show knowing it would be campy at all. I just watch Scream on MTV, a show that I loved, and I thought it would be reminiscent of that. I was disappointed at first, but I will just have adjust the the perspective from which I watch the show. Which was your favorite death?White Mammy. Specifically because of the conversation that follows in which Chanel declares that you cannot die from having your face burned off...Zayday's reaction was hilarious. Let's talk about that twist at the end. Did you see it coming? What do you think is going on there?I have no idea what's going on, but it is that scene that hooked me to watch more episodes. Prior to the end, I had decided that campy satire isn't my thing (I like real plot and character relationships)...but, then, Nick Jonas popped open his eyes and now I'm intrigued.
