Merlin 03x01: The Tears of Uther Pendragon
But really, just seeing their chemistry and rapport back makes me happy. Colin and Bradley really do have great timing with each other and they just bounce off the other. Of course, seeing Arthur sans top is always a bonus in these episodes. I can't wait to see how many misadventures they get in to.
I can tolerate Morgana being really two faced to Uther, but to Arthur too? He looked so broken there worrying about his dad and all Morgana's doing is plotting! Now that Merlin's found out the truth though, it'll be interesting to see how Arthur will take all of this Morgana-bashing considering all of it is essentially true. And Morgause, what the hell do you have planned?! I see the preview has a battle so I hope we don't have any losses so soon in the season.
Mad Men 04x08: The Summer Man
it's interesting to see how he's trying his hardest to really give up the drink but everyone seems to be drinking in his face. From Peggy (now taking it like the boys) and his secretary restocking his stash of booze, Don cannot get away.
And then there's Dr. Faye. I like where this is going. I like how Don can talk to her. Really talk to her and she gives pretty valuable tips. Especially about him attending Gene's birthday party. But really, Don getting action in the backseat of a cab seems to be a recurring theme. Getting oral from Bethany and macking it with Dr. Faye, Don is not short on the action. Though I'm glad he didn't go all the way with Dr. Faye yet. I want this to be something serious. I hope it is.
Draper Francis Has Everything~
Unlike varjaks, I really am liking Henry Francis and I think he makes a lot of sense when he talks. I feel his frustration though. he's trying so hard to be the bigger guy for Betty but there are just times he can't. And when he ran over Don's stuff (just a little bit), I felt a load off for him.
Joan and Peggy Still Struggle With Respect
The way she snapped at Peggy and then apologized feels validated but you could tell she was at her last straws. And the fact that she's sort of hinted to Don and Lane about her problems just shows how desperate she was to get it fixed. But when she confronted the boys about it and fixed it herself, I gave her a silent clap. Go Joan. Stand up for yourself.
I'm glad Peggy defended Joan in a way, but I guess it just wasn't what Joan had wanted. I felt good for peggy though firing Joey and telling him that Don didn't even know him. Look at Peggy with her claws out. Do not mess with her. She's really all grown up now.
My brother and I were debating whether to watch 90210 first and then do Gossip Girl (from good to bad) or do Gossip Girl then 90210 (from bad to good) considering how last season went. We decided to go with Gossip Girl first. And though we did Gossip Girl first and laughed our way through it, it wasn't THAT bad compared to the CRAZINESS we didn't know 90210 beheld.
Gossip Girl 04x01: Belles Du Jour
Meanwhile, Chuck's worrying his family sick going MIA on them only to be saved by Clemence Posey! I cannot believe she agreed to do this show but hey, another bright spot to look forward to right?
I could care less about the Dan/Georgina situation only to say that YOU ARE ALL STUPID. THIS IS GEORGINA SPARKS. PEOPLE NEVER LEARN.
90210 02x01: Senior Year
So we get Naomi all poor and living in a motel while being haunted by nightmares of her rape -- only to find that evil teacher is still here. Apparently. Oh dear. I feel bad for her already. And we haven't even seen Jenn but I know she'll make Naomi's life a living hell. I mea she is living in a motel right?
I'm actually sort of interested in Annie this time around. I don't know why, but I feel like I'm gonna actually pay attention to her now.
The biggest laugh probably came from Javier dying in that car collision after pestering Adrianna about it only to end up stealing his songs and getting rave reviews from Navid over STOLEN MATERIAL. You know this is gonna bite Adrianna in the ass right? UGH. I don't want drama for her. There was the drugs in season 1, the baby in season 2 and now plagiarism?! Really? I hope 90210 gets better.
Nikita 01x02: 2.0I have to say, I quite enjoyed this episode and I'm really liking seeing Shane West on my screen again. He's got this evil/non-evil glint to him and I like how it's all sort of grey area where he's concerned. Maggie Q was still hot as ever complete with flashbacks to the past of how she came to meet Alex.
Speaking of Alex, girl is growing on me. I'm still not feeling Jaden (isn't she Cam Saroyan's niece on Bones?) but at least Alex is getting activated now. And Aaron Stanford is pretty cute as the hacker and fun to watch so all in all, this show is growing on me.
But you know who just owns me? JULIE FREAKING COOPER. She's the inquisitor eh? I wonder what she did to question their informant in the room because it seems like she was the big guns. Of course she's more than the resident fairy-god-mother/makeover lady. If only to see Julie Cooper (and Shane West and Maggie Q's hotness), I think I'll stick around.
Vampire Diaries 02x02: Brave New World
The upside? She got some making out time with the most supportive but still clueless boyfriend in the world. Matt was so sweet admitting he loved her and all and just being there for her even if he wasn't quite sure what it was she was going through. I'm so happy she learned to 'control' herself from Stefan. maybe was right, it looks like he'll be guiding her through this vampire-thing she's got going on. I wish Matt would find out though. Though I'm not sure how he would take it considering his sister was a vampire at one point too and look how that got her in the end,
I have to say, Damon does have a point in eliminating Caroline but I don't want to listen to rationality right now. I want Caroline to survive and I'm glad Stefan got there in time because Caroline just looked real lost.
I'm liking that Damon at least was sort of nice to Jeremy in the end there. Sure, Jeremy was there to kill him but it looks like the Damon/Jeremy bonding is about to commence. You know Damon's just protecting himself and making sure he and Stefan aren't exposed so he acts all rash but he's a nice guy too. I'm obviously under his spell.
And yeah, Elena can totally deny she still cares for him and blame this saving of Damon as a way of saving Bonnie from herself and turning evil, we all know it's because she can't bear to see him die, right? Come on, Elena, there's no use denying. ALSO: still not warming up to Bonnie. Attempting to kill Damon isn't adding to your brownie points miss.
Elena and Stefan were particularly cute though this episode with the ferris wheel (hello The O.C., Ryan called and wants the top car for him and Marissa to make out on) and locker talks. I laughed when they flew to the top though. I thought he was at least going to scale the wheel fast. I wish Katherine were here though to shake them up. But hey, I won't complain, it's a Caroline episode. THIS IS RARE.
I haven't seen Nikita's second episode but I'll probably just add my thoughts later on. My head is too tired to digest any newer information tonight.
