As mentioned before one of the things I’m missing about Twitter and Facebook is interaction about TV. I started my break before most shows premiered and I have no clue how people are reacting to this season. I feel a little lost. But I’ll take a few minutes to gab about what I think.
I feel like this season has been solid GG so far. Blair’s attention-getting actions were very odd. It was also odd to see JoAnna Garcia with Nate after watching her in a full season of Privileged. Maybe it’s just lingering affects from that but I’m not 100% sold on that character. I do like Carter and hope he sticks around. I’m loving Blair and Chuck together. I do like this whole college thing. I feel like it fits them better at this point yet it still feels like GG.
Greek started really slow for me the first two episodes. I had to struggle through to even watch the second episode at all. The last two have been back up to par and let me say that Cappie is by far the star of that show. Without him, the episodes lag! Here a few quotes I grabbed from this week:
A sororiety girl. I can’t remember her name and I’m too lazy to look it up. The senator’s daughter: See they were blown off for another mixer so they stayed in for mud masks and a TV series about old people having old people sex.
Casey: They’re watching Private Practice?
Evan and Cappie looking at flyers for Evan a job.
Cappie: Oh here’s one. Sperm donor. Someone with your pedigree could earn three times what I have…would..as much as I would.
Ashley: Maybe they were hot back in the 80s.
Casey: No that is ugly in any decade.
One Tree Hill
This is a huge year for OTH. Another 14 mo jump, 2 lost major character and 4 additions and it was a recipe for disaster. But after the third episode this week, I feel really good about it. I’m really loving Clay and even Alex. They need to step it up with Quinn or she will be the biggest bore I’ve seen on there yet. Nathan and Haley have been fantastic this season, especially the last episode. As for Brooke, I much rather have Brooke with an attitude than Brooke in love. But I do still like her with Julian and I’m glad to hear that storyline will be shaken a bit. Drama!
TVBytheNumbers.com has called this as a cancellation. I won’t be surprised. I skipped through a lot of last night’s episode. It’s rough. Really rough. I don’t care much about the characters, the acting especially on Ashlee Simpson-Wentz’s part is horrid and the who-murdered-Sydney story-line is already old. There are a few good parts though. I think Jonah and Riley are solid, especially Riley. She’s one of the only real characters with solid acting. And I hate to say this, but I’m actually enjoying Lauren’s hooker line. It’s not right but I think the acting is superb and I think she’s showing genuine conflict about it and unfortunately there are women who find themselves in just that plight. However, with Ella Simms as the star of this show, it’s empty, vain and annoying and it will be the downfall of this show. It’s hard to support a show where you don’t even like the main character. Heather Locklear finally signed on and I’m interested to see if she saves the show. If you’re a fan, make sure to check out Melrose Place Blog (sorry for the review, Ruthie, but I’ll still plug the site for you!)
Lie To Me
I didn’t mean to watch it this season but I needed to pass some time Monday night. It was a solid episode for the show. If you enjoyed the first season, definitely check it out.
I posted about this show briefly last week but wow, Grey’s was back with full force. It will be interesting to see where they take it from here. I’m wondering how you improve on what we just saw. I’m thoroughly enjoying Alex and Izzie and Derek and Meredith married.
As always The Office manages to make me laugh with quotes like this:
“I say my greatest talent is being the best man, woman or child to have ever run this branch ever.”
“I’d have to talk to my mother and my guy at H&R Block.”
I’m excited for Jim and Pam and can’t wait for this week.
I’ve dropped Glee. Eh.
I am totally and completely smitten with Vampire Diaries. And it is totally and completely due to Ian Somerhalder as Damon. It was a little weak out of the gate but the last episode was great and I literally have been counting down to Thursday this week. I could do without all the vampirism and biting (I know, then what’s the point, eh?) but I love the characters and the stories have been decent. If they do this right, it could be huge. Make sure to check out Vampire Diaries Online.
TVBytheNumbers.com also shows this as a possible cancellation and I wouldn’t be surprised since we almost didn’t get this season. But it’s a shame. It’s a good show and I really enjoyed the premiere last week.
And in closing…have I mentioned I’m excited for the Friday Night Lights premiere in 4 weeks?? All you people have PLENTY of time to catch up on 1-3. Do eeeet!
