  1. S01.E02: Skinny Is Magic

    Christopher Gorham and Alyssa Milano were in a movie together called 'My Girlfriend's Boyfriend'. It's a nice romantic comedy to watch on a rainy day.
  2. S02.E10: A House Divided

    That's how he's able to cope with being married to her... or THEM, more like it. He's being a husband to Ashley and Lauren. URGH. There are men who are happy for the women do all the talking. He's clearly one of them. Happy to let Ashley take control of everything and make all the decisions and he's just along for the ride. Unfortunately, for the rest of his life.

    I like all the FU moments Camille pulls on Alan and Adora - gulping down the drink at the wake and slamming down the glass and storming out of the change room at the store in just her bra and undies when Adora wouldn't shut up, and giving the finger to Alan. Yeah, you show 'em, Camille! I would've been too scared to do that to my parents when I was younger, but now, I don't give a shit. If they yell, I'll yell back. If they curse at me, I'll curse back. If they hit me, I'll hit them back. It's a life with that part of your fear removed, and it's very freeing. I see why people live their lives without giving a shit.

    OMG, a southern, meaner Regina George. Nailed it. The Bitch Queen Bee. Remember Kyra from The Sixth Sense? Reminded me of that. She scared me as well. John is supposed to be like, sooo super GORRRRR-JUSSSS and Ashley being an average girl, wants the attention of dating the hottest guy in town. Parading him around like, "Hey, look who *I* am dating!!!" There's also that wounded-guy factor that a lot of girls like. I hate it when women say that you're not really a woman unless you've birthed a child. WTF?! So, if you're an adoptive or a foster mum who has never had a biological child, you're not a real woman?? Or if you've never had a baby (for whatever reason), you're also not a woman? Yes, yes, I get what you're TRYING to say, but you're saying it wrong! There is absolutely no reason for the sound to be shit. It's 2018, ffs. I get that it's supposed to be all dark and whatever, but so what? You should still be able to hear what the people are saying. Especially if the scenes are in the dark and you can't really read their lips.
  6. S01.E05: Closer

    OMG, Simply Irresistable! Yes! I loved her in that movie. Funny you mentioned SI, because I actually thought Sarah Michelle Gellar might have been considered for the Camille role. Or Rachel McAdams. Now I want one of those caramel eclairs.
  7. The Best of Veronica Mars

    Veronica to Lamb: "'Veronica Mars Is Smarter Than Me' - oh, you stop!!"
  8. S01.E05: Closer

    I feel like Adora did it on purpose to provoke her. They weren't even short-sleeved dresses, they were strappy ones which would have shown a LOT of skin. That's just Adora being a bitch, just to mess with someone and feel like she has control over other people's emotions. Every time I see the name 'Amma', I still say Ahh-Mah...

    I actually thought that Jackson Hurst was going to play the detective, instead of Mr Lacey. Also, Marcia Cross could have played Adora. She plays the icy, cold, calculating part well. I see Adora as a poison that kills you very slowly over a long period of time like tiny amounts of arsenic or asbestos, so you're suffering that whole time. Even when the poisoning stops, you go on suffering from the permanent damage caused by the poison.

    The pace and the small-town-mystery aspect remind me a bit of Twin Peaks back in the 90s. The image of Laura Palmer's blue body in the plastic bag still haunts me! This time, it's young girls with their mouths all bloody because their teeth have been pulled. Eeek.

    I really do wish that they had released this as an 8-ep Netflix show where the episodes were released all at once, or 90-minute TV episodes over three or four nights in a row. It's difficult to watch them spread out like this over many weeks, especially considering the pace of the show. They seem to be stretching out all the unnecessarily boring parts. I do appreciate that a lot of effort has gone into making all the little details count, but just wish the pace was quicker. Just because it's in one of those small towns where people look like they're still in the 70s, doesn't mean that everything has to be so damn slow. I mean, they're dealing with a serial killer who's killing young girls, ffs! I did like that Alan scolded Adora for hogging all the grief after Marion died. He's right - Marion was his daughter as well. Of course he would have been devastated. In movies and shows, I do tend to like characters such as Adora being told off by others. It wasn't so satisfying and as always, Adora was pretending to be all too-sad-for-this-life and pulling all her regular bullshit on her husband, but at least he said something.

    With crazy-long credits!
  13. S01.E03: Fix

    Reminds me of all the L-names from Smallville - Lex Luthor, Lana Lang, Lionel Lang, Lois Lane...

    Any plot points in particular? I can definitely see why people would find the series confusing. I know what's going to happen, and I was actually getting irritated with all the past/present clips being all choppy and too deliberate. Effing hate Adora. And her husband is a spineless pussy. I can see how they would work well together as a couple, as screwed up as that sounds.

    Ha, I always think about sticking together with people with similar upbringing. I have zero resentment towards people who come from loving homes, but I draw the line at them trying to give me 'advice', especially when they tell me that I should make amends. FO. You Don't Know. I get that you're trying to help, but really, you have no idea what you are talking about. I think they have seen too many Hallmark movies where people Live Happily Ever After. Again, if you have been estranged from your parents, but somehow found a way to make up and become close, I'm very happy for you. But that's the exception, not the norm. I would definitely use the term narcissistic to describe my parents, so I don't mind at all. Well, she's the one who wanted to make them yellow. It was her grandfather or uncle.
