A looooong overdue TV blog…
Jack & Bobby
I have one more episode to watch before I finally get caught up with this show but I’m still not feeling it. However, I’m shallow and I keep watching for Matt Long. Heh. Although I wish he’d get some better storylines cause the love triangle with Missy and Courtney isn’t very engaging. Especially since I get the feeling I’m supposed to be rooting for Courtney and I’m not. Missy may be a bit flighty but I like her. Still not caring about Grace. But I’m tolerating her because she has scenes with Bradley Cooper! It’s good to see him on TV again. I just hope their relationship isn’t going anywhere further than teacher-student. Also have no interest in Bobby and Dex and their crazy antics. It’s a wonder that I watch this show when I don’t feel anything for the majority of the characters.
One Tree Hill
What’s with Peyton’s hair this season? I don’t like the curly bangs she has going on. I’m also not crazy about the 2 new cast additions, particularly Felix. He can’t act! Michael Copon’s pretty, but wow, is he a bad actor. It’s very distracting. But not distracting enough for me to miss out on the Brooke/Felix/Mouth storyline. Aww. Mouth loves Brooke! Too bad it’ll never happen. Still loving Nathan and Haley, of course. It’ll be interesting to see if Haley’s music career takes off and how it will affect her marriage. I normally like Peyton and Lucas but so far this season, their storylines have been really disappointing. Maybe it’s because they haven’t really been interacting with other Tree Hill regulars so I don’t care as much? Who knows. Thank goodness there’ll be a girl power slumber party next week. That actually looks like fun.
Squee, it’s back! You guys have no idea how happy the twinkly theme song made me when I heard it. *warm fuzzies* Ryan&Seth=BestFriends4EVAH!!! Ahem. I just loved when Ryan was walking to the cab and Seth was tapping his foot and then he ran to the door… just in time to find Ryan there as well. Aww. I have to say the beginning of the episode was a little slow for me, because I felt like I was just waiting for the payoff of both Ryan and Seth returning to Newport. And yay for continuity — Chyna and her alopecia, the Chrismukkah photo on the fridge, and Captain Oats. I also enjoyed seeing Luke again! I’m really going to miss him this season.
Quote of the episode:
Summer: “What’s his face? Built like a beanpole, curly hair, runs away like a little bitch on his sailboat leaving nothing but a note for his girlfriend who cried and cried over him until the Fourth of July when she decided she doesn’t cry over bitches on boats.” OMG. LOVE. HER.
Where has David Anders been? I seriously thought I read an article that said he had a 4-episode arc. ??? Oh well. It was cool seeing him on CSI a few episodes ago even if it was for about a minute. And with his regular accent! Anyway, this past week’s episode What’s Eating Gilbert Grisson? was freaking amazing. I liked that they revisited the Blue Paint Killer that eluded the CSIs in the past. The entire episode was really well done — it was suspenseful and seriously disturbing (especially those drawings). The killer gave me the creeps. *shivers* My only qualm about the episode was the ending. I just can’t believe that Brass and Grissom let the killer go to the bathroom. After that, I knew he was going to kill himself. It would have been interesting if he had actually escaped though. He would have made a nice foil for Grissom and the CSIs for at least a little while longer.
More shows to follow… I have to get ready for bed! Ahhh, sleep…
