I’ve decided that I watch too much TV to try and maintain a stream of separate posts.  So what I will do now is list several show per post and what I liked and didn’t like about them.  Let’s do this!!


Like – Nikola Tesla!!  He’s so sassy and awesome.  And vampiric.  Being a bit of a double agent suits him well.  The subplot of Will and Biggie seeing those abnormal get fried was really as engaging as seeing the main thread.

Dislike – Nothing much to dislike this week.  I just miss Kate a little bit.  And what happened to Helen’s new lady love affair?  I thought that was especially hot and I want to see it addressed again. 



Like – I like that Kate finally realized what a mega-dick her dad is.  And I love that Ryan clearly has a thing for Jed, and sleeps with Molly anyway.  Molly should have been a little less overbearing though.  Straight or gay, who needs a need bitch like that?

Dislike – Kate’s still the biggest bitch ever.  She’s such an asshole to everyone around her, why does anyone talk to her.  And why on earth would Jed even consider making a move on her.  Especially since she pulled that dick move on her ex-lover married guy.  I’d like her more if she was still a bitch, but just a hint more compassion.  Ryan – seriously!  Why are you kidding yourself with this sleeping with women thing.  You were so happy at the gay bar a few episodes back.  I don’t feel bad for Molly, but I do for you.  Come out!!



Like – EVERYTHING!!  I love how Dexter is contemplating his own darkness because of Brother Sam.  Nick had that shit coming.  What an ass.  Even Debra is interesting this season!  I haven’t been interested in her plights since season one.  I like the trials that she’s going through with the promotion and LaGuerta is like a bad news/bad advice angel.  I’m glad she’s not marring Quinn.  Though I expect that she’ll reconsider by the end.  Travis letting that girl go was crazy awesome, but Gellar is going to be so pissed!!  And I’m really pumped to see Dexter’s brother.  :::gasp::: Trinity’s son!!

Dislike – I miss Dexter’s table.  Too bad he had to drown Nick.  I like the kill rooms.


Walking Dead

Like – Glenn gets laid!!  Super awesome.  Lori is a weirdo.  I wonder whose baby that is…it would seem obvious that its Shane’s so maybe it should be Rick’s.  Shane’s still a little crazy, but not as crazy as he seemed last week.  Daryl continues to prove that he brother is not related to him at all.  Out of all the characters on the show, Daryl is the one guy I’d want near me at all times.  And truth to tell, he’s easy on the eyes a little bit too.

Dislike – Andrea and Dale bore me.  I get it, Shane looks like he’ll get over Lori by climbing on Andrea.  But honestly, I couldn’t care less about her and her shitty attitude.  Dale is old and boring.  Oh and I get it, Carol.  It’s your kid and you are losing it without her.  But you are as useful as tits on a log when it comes to helping find her.  You are damn lucky to have Daryl around.  Anyone else think the old surgeon man should have been played by  John Lithgow?

 That’s it for now.

Once Upon A Time

New Show Time!

This time we try out Once Upon A Time.  And it was pretty good.  Robert Carlyle was my main draw into this show.  That guy is the greatest and he sure didn’t disappoint as Rumpelstiltskin!  The idea of this story is that fairy tale characters are real and their world was cursed into because this picturesque town in Maine.  The Evil Queen takes all the happy endings away but dumping everyone into an ordinary life in Maine.  In the small town scenario the Evil Queen is the mayor of Storybrook.  Jimminy Cricket is the town shrink and snow white is a school teacher.  Rumpelstiltskin owns the town.  Anyway, Prince Charming and Snow White has a kid named Emma and they give her into a protective tree closet and she ends up in Boston.  Its prophized that she will return and restore everything.  She also has a kid that she gave up for adoption and the Evil Mayor adopts him.  The kid finds his birth mom with a stolen credit card and drags her up to Maine.  Evil Mayor is evil and doesn’t love her adopted son.  Emma realizes this and rents a room to stay for a week.

I’m really curious to see where this is going to go.  This could either be really great or really awful.  This, as a series opener goes, was the former.  I liked the flashing back and forth between real world and fairy world to show how things were going to unfold. I wasn’t too sure about how a 10 or so year old boy can get from ME to MA on a stolen credit card, but I’ll bite that no one stopped him or asked where his parents were or why he’s buying tickets with a credit card himself.  Also, how willing to drive to Maine is a person that doesn’t want to be found by her given up son?  Maine is far.  We aren’t talking an hour there and an hour back.  I would have just called the police and let them sort it out.  But I’m dead inside, so there’s that.

Overall, I’ll suspend my disbelief into the next episode and try to see more Robert Carlyle!

The Hunger Games

Holy Shit!!  New character posters are up for the Hunger Games!


Let’s have a look!

Effie – She looks AMAZING.  Almost how I pictured her while reading.  I hope she has a reasonably quirky accent like I think she should.  🙂

Cinna – This is not how I pictured him, but I really love this casting.  And I haven’t liked Lenny Kravitz in like 10 years.  I think he’ll have that empathic demeanor and look in his eyes that I always thought was there.

Peeta – Still not on board with the bakery beefcake.  I just don’t like his face.  I’m sure I’ll be wrong about it.

Katniss – She looks perfect.  Every bit of youthful and bravery.  This is the best casting they’ve done.

Gale – Hottie flavor of the month.  I won’t lie, he’s hot.  I’m a cougar to that kid.  I don’t care. . .oops!  I got stuck thinking bad things about that dude.

Rue – I’m already going to cry.

Cato – Would have made a better Peeta.  Also, very hot.

Haymitch – I’m wrong!  This is THE BEST casting choice ever.  His look in the poster is a bananas!  I can’t even wait to see him fall down drunk and being a gross pest to Katniss.

That’s everyone for now.  I can’t wait to see the design team and Peeta’s design team!  I am crazy excited for this movie.  If you haven’t read the books yet, hurry up!  They are crazy awesome!

The Hunger Games

So cool!


I loved these books!  I can’t wait to see the movie, however I’m not 100% on board with the casting of Peeta.  He just seems…not right somehow.  More on that as it develops… The casting of Haymitch, however, is the best casting decision I’ve seen in ages!  He’s going to steal the show.

The story is about a post apocalyptic North America in which the Capitol is in control of the country Panem.  There are 12 districts that have to send one boy and one girl every year as tributes to fight to the death in the hunger games.  The kids are between 12 and 18, and this is all televised for the Capitol’s enjoyment.  It was implemented as a punishment/example of what happens when the citizens rebel.  Its gory, violent, romantic, political, and a stunning piece of writing.  Feel free to check those books out!  It is a trilogy.

For those that are interested, at the website above, I was declared District 3.  Nice!
