And so another show is over and I'm left with Dr. Who. As if. Seems like I got curious with the show Pretty Little Liars thanks to maybe, famouslyso and stellarmoneca that I actually gave the ABC Family show a shot. I haven't read the book and don't think I will but despite the slow start, I think I'm too intrigued to not stick around for the next episode at least. Then again, I'm so easy to please.
Doctor Who 05x11: Vincent and the Doctor
well who wouldn’t tear up at that episode?! Seriously. it was made of all sorts of win. FIrst we got back in the past. Second, it’s got Billy Nighy. Third, we have Van Gogh! Fourth, we have the cuteness of the Doctor and Amy (though I still miss you Rory). Fifth, we get Van Gogh in the future/present.
But it also broke my heart how despite how things were changed, they were essentialy the same. I felt like it was a parallel theme to Amy not getting Rory back. I don’t know, maybe it’s just me but perhaps the producers are trying to say, it all works out for the best. I’m just glad Van Gogh at least lived his last year of his life knowing he was worth something. Now let’s get back to working on getting ROry back. Yes?
Glee 01x22: Journey
Well was that saptastic or what? For some reason, I was hoping for more laughs but I guess we got our share of cheese and awww moments instead. I love that Vocal Adrenaline won and that Sue actually voted for New Directions. I'm glad they get another year too.
But for some reason, I just didn't love love love the episode. It lacked the humor and political incorrectness that I love about the show. We called almost every scene from Quinn's water breaking to Shelby getting the baby. Still, not bad for a first season obviously. I hope Ryan Murphy can keep it up though.
So we meet our four friends, Aria, Hannah, Spencer and Emily and of course their 'dead' friend Alison who's sending secret messages to them from the other side. Apparently, Aria's been making out with her teacher, Hannah's a thief, Spencer lust after Nanny Carrie's boyfriend and Emily could be quasi-lesbian. Except wait, isn't Alison dead?! Who could be sending these mysterious texts and messages?!
Though the acting, I admit was a little difficult to watch, I got hooked by all the grown ups on the show! We've got Hilary Swank's ex-husband and Piper Halliwell (Charmed) as Aria's parents; Sydney Andrew's (Melrose Place) as Hannah's mom who's shacking up with Josh Ford (Popular) to keep Hannah from prison or whatever and though not quite a grown-up, we have Katherine's maid, Emily as well, Emily's quasi-lesbian friend. BUT LET'S NOT FORGET, NANNY CARRIE!!! I didn't even watch a lot of One Tree Hill but the episodes I saw with her in it obviously stuck around.
You know what else though? The boys are kinda cute. The English teacher is pretty. Nanny Carrie's fiance is pretty too and I thought his Brit accent was fake but apparently he is Brit! So I'm not sure whether I'll be obsessively recapping the show but the ending kinda hooked me and I just wanna learn more (like how A disappeared/died; who's sending those damn messages; what the 'secret' with Jenna is etc.) Good job, ABC. You've gotten me hooked. And yes, Lauren, best opening credits indeed. From the song to how it feels like Six Feet Under except for the CW-nation.
