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.
I didn't enjoy a lot of the racist (white eyeliner to write on Zayday, over-the-top portrayals of stereotypical black women via the security guards, "white mammy") humor...or some of the other humor that teetered on the edge of funny and insulting. Having just watched Scream on MTV (a show that is a bit campy but incredibly good), I am having trouble swallowing this show. Perhaps I will have to adjust my perception of it as an entirely satirical show (a la a Saturday Night Live sketch) rather than trying to find plot and character relationships to care about. I wonder if I will actually enjoy it if I watch it from that perspective? Also, I do not believe Chanel #2 got the tweet out ;-)
I tried so hard to watch this, as I thought I would love it as much as GOT or Outlander. I just couldn't get through the episode, however. While I know it was entirely realistic, the extremely poor hygiene and rotting teeth were too much for me. The Baron on the privy while talking, the servant wiping him, Maddox flaying a man.....I just couldn't get past all of those things to appreciate the story-line. Bummer, because I suspect it is very good!
Weird, weird show. I thought I wouldn't even bother watching again, but the end sort of had me interested. A lot of really crass jokes and strangle humor mixed with horror. I don't think I "get" it.
Totally agreed on True Blood. In the books, at least, Bill lives on and Sookie ends up dating Sam. And even that was a crap ending in my opinion.And HIMYM...ugh, so bad!
Booooo, video blocked by Warner Brothers!
Damon on the clock tower was a sight to behold! Though, I'm not excited for the heretics at all. The Original family was important to the vampire lore. This seems like a way to create a new evil or "big bad".
