Mom by day, couch critic by night. I live on a steady diet of coffee, wine, sarcasm, television, and books. But not necessarily in that order.
Scandal Review: Broken (4/27/2013)@Kay and KR--My apologies. I Youtubed that scene and rewatched it and yes, the sex was consensual. I see now that she slapped him before they had sex when I had previously thought it occurred afterward. Again, my apologies for misremembering a scene from several months ago.
Glee Review: When The Lights Go Out At McKinley (4/26/2013)I feel like it didn't come across, or I said it but it was glossed over, but yes, Sam and Artie's reactions were common reactions to hearing a secret as shocking as Ryder's. That's sad but true. My larger point was that there was a chance to model responsible ADULT behavior by having Will do more than just throw out the "you know I have to report this" and calling it done. At best, the scene was dismissive. At worst, potentially offensive, damaging, and triggering to those who have been there and weren't expecting that secret.
Scandal Review: Broken (4/26/2013)Here are more of my thoughts about Huck and 752--when he was stuck into the deprivation chamber it was to break him psychologically. It drove him a little crazy to the point that he could no longer remember facts of his life from things in his head. When he finally uttered "no" it was because he could no longer be sure that he had actually lived that happy life. He did disappear for a time, from the looks of things, around 8 or 9 years, and then found himself back in D.C. homeless and panhandling in the Metro station. When he was put back into the box in the last ep, he flashed back to his previous torture and remembered the moment at 7:52 when he saw his wife and son again and began to question his reality. I don't think he knew who he had seen until he was put into the box in the storage shed.
