The Following Review: Love and Death

i have tried and tried to enjoy this show. i really like purfoy and bacon. but the word is enjoy. i find myself upset with the outlandish goings on(and i don't with for instance Banshee,which you have to allow for some real outlandish stuff,same with many series,any really)so much so that i am more agitated than entertained...i can't put my finger on it except that i am somehow offended by the material. i watch so many shows that require the viewer to just go with it i was surprised,so i will try again,but i have to do it on the dvr so i can ff etc...antone else more agitated than entertained?

writers have used the gitmo and patirot threat on police preceedurals for a decade now. the characters usually using the threat with glee and the attitude of "we can do anything we want now" i always and still do find it offensive..whetherly's character on NCIS has used it a few times as well...i find it distasteful,even if it is something they do...maybe naive,but i need these likable characters to know better...if it is a situation the warants it somehow,fine,but then we are not talking about those...

Downton Abbey Review: Strange Bedfellows

i am betting that mrs o'brien's secret is that "andy" is her son,not her nephew???yes,no?...i was surprised that she was so cruel to someone she seemed to like...betrayal is far worse than simple cruelty..we know she is cruel,but....the show is always a 10...

Girls Review: Hannah Plays House

do some of these people get this is a show,a show!..and satire,showing how dumb we can be in early adulthood,but hopefully learn from our mistakes...and B Crowder it isn't a jo fanatsy for you ya know..and "hanna" is laughing ALL THE WAY TO THE BANK(i kept thinking this is one brave chick)...actually she is very rubiesque which for most of our past history were the 10's ...and it is more like real life,..tv is so full of perfect people we forget that and should celebrate the fact that not everybody has to be a 10 to get out attention...esp since 99% of the world is not represented by the lot on tv...the brits have their share of gorgeous people,but they usually go with talent b/4 beauty...i wish we would do a bit more of that(well maybe i'm being a little hypocritical),i'm no differant with enjoying beauty...but no need to be cruel...no need at all..how many woman and gay men were thinking they would do these scenes with patrick wilson for free???

Bones Review: Joke's Over

i have lost interest in bones since the marriage...the conflict and drama involved in not knowing until the series is over regarding their relationship was important i think...i didn't even really care,but i think the changes made for them to be a married with children couple ruined the show for me...i like all the actors as well,but something changed,enough so that i miss episodes and forget i forgot..not good...i am sure i am in the minority regarding this,but.....

always very cutting edge and brave..ann frank alive? wow i wonder how long the writers debated over this script. aversion therapy was still in use in the 1970"s unfortunately and i think on a vol basis it exists still today..for "homosexuality,masterbation etc...(unbelievable) usually by born again religious right docs...i am a psych social worker and it was electricity(b/4 my time) not induced vomiting mixed with condoms with rushing warm water alternating with pic of men and women...ie..cloclwork orange...is jessica going to end up helping our victims at some point? can't be,but something is changing in/with her...always so much intrigue with these stories..can't wait till next week!

i have tried over the yrs to watch this series. i find the stories tedious,but mostly i leave feeling offended and assualted by the stories. one episode yrs ago"the big wheel" about an obsessive compulsive "alex o'laughlan" (sp)was exceptionally good and i have a copy of it on disc i was so impressed with it. the others always leave me feeling sick,never entertained..and i am a huge walking dead and american horror fan...so go figure...of course amer horror and walking dead are fantasy based...as a psychiatric soc wkr i am offended by these stories. i always hoped they would be redeeming in some way. how do these entertain??? as i read the posts here and elsewhere it is easy to see it does for a good many? i'll keep taking a peek...

i was concerned that from past scripts to do a story with people so horrible they would trade chidren to"survive" might fall short. it needed to be great to work or it would be terribly offensive. i would have done away with the bad guys straight away first in the barn and later as an ambush...these people lost the war when they decided to deal for there selfish poorly scripted reason. they just kept comming and comming boohoo...so disapointed. how involved is speilberg really. i find it hard to believe he would approve this sludge...but there is so much worse on tv as well.
