Revenge Review: Do Unto Others

Annndddddd....I'm done. Just can't keep watching this show. The whole premise was built on Emily plotting REVENGE against the people who wronged her dead father who by all accounts actually wanted her to forgive these people. All of that is gone now. Revenge has become murderous, her dead father is alive, and surprise, not so dead daddy is a murderer, too! Buh - Bye.

Game of Thrones Review: It's Only Wine

Well played GoT. Well played. I have been begging for the death of that tool from day one and FINALLY get my payoff only to have a viewer fave be falsely accused. I'm hooked & almost want to read the books now so I don't have to wait to see where the story goes!

Parenthood Review: Mixed Signals

Solid episode.
I am not a fan of the Hank/Sarah pairing but not b/c of Sarah. She's taken a long time to "find herself" and that may be flighty for some esp in comparison of Adam & Julia & almost even Crosby but it could be Soooo much worse. I thought she clicked best w/ Carl.
Drew needs to grow up a little. What's her face was just a bed buddy who wasn't interested in him until she couldn't have him anymore. He's gone from sensitive to an emo caricature. Why can't he just get a haircut & have some fun??
Even Knight is hot in a very geeky but cool kind of way. I want to date a guy like him. :) However, I do NOT agree that Julia should have taken him back to her place. That was very inappropriate.
And I am confused about Zeek and Camille...I thought they were selling the house so they could travel more & do all the things Camille dreamed her 3rd chapter would be like? Why buy another house if that's true? Can someone correct me on this?

Parenthood Review: Mixed Signals

Life isn't so black & white that people wait for a clear verbal consent from a former partner to move on with their lives. Sometimes people will be impulsive and just go with what they are feeling in that moment. From Julia's eyes (right or wrong), she has spent the better part of a year fighting for a marriage that is broken. Her husband just told her he's not willing to work on repairing it & the only man who "makes her feel good" also makes her feel equally as guilty & wrong b/c of how their friendship played a role in the end of the marriage. This hot teacher man brought all the flattery without any of the baggage & she let herself live in the moment for just a moment. This is a very true to life scenario. I pass no judgment on it & applaud the writers for not being altruistic.

Terrible episode. In every scenario I felt like Cristina was being extremely selfish. By the end of the episode, I didn't care as much about her leaving the show.

JP is no different than every other person on this show...VERY few of them actually go on there looking for true love. Most go on the show to be on TV to get some kind of reality fame. JP just did a piss poor job of hiding that fact. And when public opinion turned against him, he became defensive and decided that he was "a private person" and that he wasn't going to play the game like a good boy. How many bachelors go on the show & profess true love & "get engaged" only to break it off by the time the finale airs? And didn't one of them dump his choice for his second choice? Let's give this guy a little credit for "being honest", even if being honest just means that he's honestly a fame whoring d-bag. And I totally disagree w/ Clare's attitude at the end. Again, it's a TV show where the premise is that this guy meets 25 women, dates about 20, kisses at least 10, and sleeps w/ a handful. Then, he gets to narrow it down to 2 & there is a REQUIREMENT that he has a final ceremony where 1 gets dumped. And all the while, the other bachelors say worse things like "I think I am following in love w/ you" when really...he's going to pick the other girl. She's either totally delusional or she was making a last ditch effort at becoming the next bachelorette. Ees Okay, Juan Pablo. Ees gunna all be OK.

Smash Review: The Hit List is a Go!

Not sure why the writers think that we should be rooting for Karen & Jimmy. He's borderline emotionally abusive. His guilt trips and temper tantrums only make me wish Dev would come back into the picture. Sure, he cheated but even with that, I still like him better than Jimmy.

I loved that no one knew who Brooks was until they said "Mousy". lol. I was kind of hoping the billionaire would buy the hospital. He was very Christian Grey-Esque which I thought would bring more steamy-dreamy-whatever into the mix. But that last twist w/ Mama buying Jackson a hospital was pretty great.

At first, I was in full agreement about the wardrobe. But I think that the bigger issue is w/ E's HAIR. It's much too well coifed for a late 30's mother of 2 in 1981. That's what's throwing me off & not giving her look an 'authentic' feel. I really like this show - but I'm finding it hard to be sympathetic to the 2 main characters (mostly E actually). Even a show like Dexter, which is about a serial killer, you find yourself rooting for the serial killer. And with this show, there's not enough subcontext in the character motivation to make me root for them to win over the FBI/American Gov't. ESPECIALLY after this last episode where I do think that they (at least in their subconscious) knew what was going to happen with Joyce. I'm not even surprised that E had a lover...I'm only surprised that she had actual feelings for him. That's how cold she is to me. P is great though. He's the real standout of this show.
