  1. Performances from this week:
  2. I have to agree with the judges that this week there were generally good tattoos. Of course, the contestants set the bar pretty low last week with those terrible battle tattoos, so there was nowhere to go but up, right? I had to laugh at the new vet this week saying, "You can art all day." If he doesn't think tattooing is an art which requires artistic skill, what does he think it is? I am so glad to be rid of Lalo. His attitude really annoyed me. Last week he made such a big show during judging of passive aggressively blaming Picasso with his actions rather than this words. This week, it was obvious that Picasso's drawing was well liked but Lalo's execution was what ruined the tattoo. Picasso could have been a dick and talked shit about Lalo to the judges, but he didn't so he gets bonus points. I thought the judges would blame Picasso for not standing right behind Lalo the entire time and telling him what to do, but based on what we've seen of Lalo in the previous episodes, even if Picasso had been breathing down his neck and micromanaging him, Lalo wouldn't have listened to a damn thing Picasso said because Lalo is convinced that he knows everything.
  3. Although I think Travis Wall is overrated (both as a dancer and a choreographer), I was excited about this week's challenge. Even though it was several different elements (the four seasons + dancing), I was excited to see some beauty makeup with a very specific theme and I was excited that the makeup had to last through the dancing. To be fair, after seeing the actual routine, this was not overly strenuous choreography that should have affected any of the makeup. I agree with the judges not picking a winning or losing team this week because the two strongest looks (Faina's autumn lady and Andrew's spring rose) were on different teams and the weakest looks (Phil's autumn Heat Miser, Joseph's weird winter guy, and Kierstins starfish) were spread among the two teams. But this is exactly why the winner and loser shouldn't be selected based on which team wins or loses. Just pick the best and worst look regardless of which team did best pr worst overall! Suzanne's green fern summer guy was a miss for me. I appreciate all the effort to create that fern texture, but it didn't read well. From a distance it wasn't clear what it was and up close it looked detailed but not obviously a fern. Glenn thought it was lizardy from far away and like an insect up close, neither of which are the fern she intended. Faina's autumn woman was gorgeous. The leaf crown wasn't the most innovative thing I've ever seen but it was executed well (which is more than you can say about the other team's autumn leaves headdress) and the beauty makeup was so pretty. Faina chose the perfect shades of orange and brown without letting the colors get too muddy, and she kept enough highlights on the face to let her model remain feminine looking. Nelson's winter guy was a miss for me. The crystal ice crown/headpiece looked very fake because the crystals were clumped together and didn't separate all the way down to the skull. Kierstin's summer starfish headpiece was well executed and well painted with some lovely colors, but everything else sucked. The crazy hair was too wild and I didn't get the beauty makeup she attempted. She painted her model's face a very pale/washed out whitish color, added yellowish orange around the eyes, and then drew dark purple lines from the outside of the eyes to the nose. WTF? Andrew's spring rose was stunning. When he was sculpting it, I thought the concept was good but the execution wasn't looking great. I should have had more faith because it turned out so beautifully. The application was so great - I couldn't see any seams or edges, and I loved the green leaves creeping up her neck. I liked KC's summer look. The sculpted eyebrows going into the forehead were very beautiful and the vibrant greens and yellows were very striking. She was so smart to cut the edges to match her sculpt. That's the kind of thinking you need when things don't go your way. The leaves on Phil's autumn guy looked too thick and simple. They looked like something a kid would make in a beginning pottery class. But even worse than that were the edges. They were just terrible. Joseph's winter look was not good. I'm okay with asymmetry but his look was just weird. I didn't like the icicle horns coming out of one side of the head, the ears were way too high, and just the overall look. In theory, I thought that what Travis said to Joseph was supportive and positive, but remembering how his season of So You Think You Can Dance ended, it sounded like sour grapes (he came in second to Benji Schwimmer). I didn't mind him as a judge though. He had some good comments for the contestants which I always appreciate.
  4. The best part about Ryan's solo for the All Stars was when the cameras cut to the line of All Stars in their director chairs to show one of them giving extreme side eye. Normally I loathe when the cameras go to the judges for reaction shots, but in this one instance, it was totally worth it because it reflected exactly what I was thinking ("WTF is this guy even doing here?"). I think it was maybe Paul who gave the side eye? I can't remember now but it was GLORIOUS. I actually had to pause the episode because I was laughing so hard.
  5. When the Hound looked into the fire and said he saw the wall, I was hoping he would then turn back to the Brotherhood and say, "I'm just fucking with you, ya stupid cunts! There's nothing in the fire but fire!"
  6. As much as I enjoyed the nostalgia of watching the tv episode and remembering so many shows that I loved, I agree that it felt very slapdash and unorganized. They were able to put together a segment about shows portraying black characters and how those shows helped build some of the smaller networks and show some diversity on television but they somehow couldn't come up with other themes/segments about other types of shows? I totally agree that My So-Called Life and Freaks & Geeks should have been discussed together because those two shows were the first with any amount of realism about high school since The Wonder Years. I also agree that comparing the 90210 type teen shows against the more realistic teen shows would have been so easy and logical to do. I know there were a lot of shows that were aimed at teens in the 90s so it would have been nice to see them just mention some of them. Felicity, Dawson's Creek, Roswell, and Party of Five were hugely popular as well as the other shows mentioned above and I think of those we got maybe a five second snippet of Joey on Dawson's Creek. It would have also been great to mention that the 90s and the early internet were the first time that fans organized when shows were canceled. Remember the bottles of hot sauce sent to the WB offices? And Ally McBeal! That stupid dancing baby was all over the internet because of that show! Heh, imagine what her reaction to 50 Shades of Grey must have been!
