oc 414

Currently watching the Grammys because JUSTIN WILL BE PERFORMING. Yay!

I can’t believe there’s only 2 more episodes of The OC left before it’s OVER. This season has been so great compared to the last two and I’m so sad to see it go. *sob* I’m especially sad that I won’t be able to see anymore of Ryan and Taylor’s story. I never thought about the pairing prior to this season (I can’t help it — I loved Marissa) so I was pleasantly surprised when the show brought them together and I fell in love. They’re so different (Taylor’s overwhelming while Ryan’s passive) yet they just work. And I don’t know that I’ve ever seen Ryan so happy before. The way he looked at Taylor when he said “I love you” in the last episode was absolutely swoon-worthy. Actually, they had a ton of great scenes in The Shake-Up:

— After getting drunk, Taylor says she’s going to sleep and Ryan knows she’s pretending… “Are you pretending to go to sleep thinking I’ll tell you I love you while you’re unconscious?” HEE! *Such* a Taylor thing to do.
— Before Ryan says “I love you,” he sweeps her bangs to the side while looking at her adoringly. GUH. THIS KILLED ME DEAD.
— At the end of the episode (but before the earthquake!!!), Ryan says it again… “I love you… and I don’t want to lose you. So let’s put it all on the table. Berkeley, Paris, Oxford… anything.”

LOVE THEM. Ben McKenzie and Autumn Reeser have great chemistry together.

I should also mention that Willa Holland has totally impressed me this season. I didn’t like Kaitlin at all last season. She had a bad attitude and misbehaved simply because she wanted to get a reaction from those around her. But this season, the writers have really given her layers and Willa’s done a great job of portraying Kaitlin as manipulative (clown porn!) yet caring (all her scenes with the Bullit) and vulnerable (her short-lived relationship with Chris Brown). So I’ve definitely warmed up to the character but in the last episode, when she was yelling at Julie and said “In the last year we lost Dad, Marissa, Dr. Neil…,” that’s when I finally understood her and loved her for it.

Oh, The OC, I’m going to miss you so.

Well, I’ve finally caught up with all 13 episodes of Brothers and Sisters. Just in time to catch Emily VanCamp’s episode next week. I really love this show. From Justin’s rebelliousness, to Kevin’s secret relationship with Chad, and to Nora’s general wackiness… it’s all great. I can’t wait to see how EVC’s character, Rebecca, interacts with the rest of the Walker clan.

A few Grammy comments…
John Mayer, cut your hair, please. Thanks.
I find T.I. kinda hot. Is that weird?
Robyn Troup is SO DAMN LUCKY. I want to HUG Justin too. 😀
Squee! For the shot of Adrian Pasdar as the Dixie Chicks won Album of the Year.
That’s all I’ve got.

brothers and sisters

Thanks for all the great words of encouragement, everyone. You don’t know how much they mean to me. *hugs* I’m feeling so much better now that I got some of that “stuff” off my chest.

Plus, I’ve been comforting myself with… TV!!!

I finally sat down and watched 6 episodes of Brothers and Sisters today on abc.com and it’s SO GREAT. The cast is fantastic… Sally Field, Ron Rifkin, Calista Flockhart, Rachel Griffiths… they’re just ALL incredible. The siblings and really, the entire family, all have amazing chemistry and their interactions are genuine and real. The storylines get complicated and messy but they never become too dramatic and “soap-y.”
It doesn’t hurt that there’s some great eye candy in the form of Balthazar Getty too. Love him! It’s funny, though, I’ve watched about half of the episodes that have aired and I don’t have a favorite character yet. Right now I love all 5 siblings equally. They each have their little quirks that make me love them. I do know that I’m not crazy about the matriarch of the family, Nora Walker (Sally Field’s character). She means well but she can be so aggravating.

Anyway, I’m so excited Emily VanCamp is joining the cast of this show because I don’t think I would have started watching it otherwise. It’s a great find. You should watch it too!

I’m also excited that Jonathan Rhys Meyers is going to be on TV soon. His show, The Tudors, premieres April 1 on Showtime. I saw this picture and swooned…


evc on tv again!

I’m so excited that Emily VanCamp’s going to be on TV again! I just adore her. Too bad she’s going to be on Brothers and Sisters, a show that I don’t currently watch. But I love EVC so I’ll check it out… at least all the episodes are available on ABC.com so I can catch up before her episodes start airing.

So I was watching American Idol earlier and a contestant named Jenry totally caught my eye. He’s easy on the eyes (read: HOT) and has a decent voice. Niiiice. BUT. He’s only 16, which means… jailbait. I feel dirty.
