See, other shows, I told you I still love you.
And… we’re back. Ok, I kinda like the four teams. I’m not sure how that’ll work out if any of the teams lose two people but I figure the odds are greater that it won’t happen so quickly. You might not always win each time but if you can come in second or third, you’re still ok. Plus, the smaller teams make it easier to tell people apart and what’s going on. ‘Course that could be bad for figuring out which team ends up at TC and the chances of people going home. I knew the younger men weren’t gonna be at TC tonight because we didn’t really get to know any of them.
Now that I don’t have bowling on Thursdays anymore and I can watch live, I’m back to transcribing at TVCH. Eeyoreslament made me feel special tonight, telling me that I’m as much a part of her Survivor watching as Jeff Probst. Aww. How sweet. Too bad I don’t get Jeff’s salary or any salary for it.
I must be weird. Everyone around me seemed to *love* those last five minutes and I? Didn’t. I didn’t hate them, I just didn’t think it deserved the “OMG! So great!” reaction it got. Maybe because the WB hyped it up as the Biggest. Gilmore. Fight. EVER. I was expecting more. Plus, I feel a little cheated. All that build up and we don’t even really get to seem them address the issues beyond just mentioning all of them in a rush.
I kinda loved Logan in this episode. He honestly likes Rory and wants her back and he’s doing a lot to make it happen. It was nice to see him being competent. I mean, I knew he had it in him – he may screw around but the boy is definitely smart and capable. It was nice to see him apply it to help Rory out. I kinda hope he sticks around the newspaper office because I liked these two working together. Such a powerful journalism duo.
Luke and Lore. *sigh* I’m sure they’ll work it out but it makes me sad that Luke just doesn’t see what he’s doing and can’t read Lore’s body language. It does prove that the daughter thing has him completely rattled because he’s usually much more aware of Lore’s feelings, even when she doesn’t vocalize them. I think what makes me the saddest is that it’s so realistic. It wasn’t a huge fight and break or a melodramatic exit by either of them. It’s such a realistic way to introduce an issue into their relationship and I am pretty sure they’ll work through it but I miss the cuteness of them.
Eh. I liked the episode ok but I think the weekly story lines suffer every time they want to delve into either of the boys’ past. It’s like they can’t handle both things at once and one always suffers. I loved the exchange between Dean and Sam over the phone about what would have happened if Sam was wrong about his hunch. Heh. I did not, however, love the Dean/Cassie sex. For the most part, I didn’t mind these two but I wasn’t feeling the chemistry in that scene and I was actually a little uncomfortable with it. I’m not sure if I have more but I’m waiting for cadhla‘s post about it so maybe she’ll nudge my memory.
One Tree Hill:
The people at the WB promo offices need to be shot. Why the hell would you give away that Ellie dies in the freakin’ previews?! It ruined all of the Peyton/Ellie scenes for me because I kept thinking about how horrible it was going to be at the end. Poor Peyton. I’m glad she got to know Ellie, though.
I don’t even know what to say about Lucas and Brooke. I’m glad they worked through it but I’m suddenly not loving these two anymore. What’s going on with that? Also, I’d rather *not* do the Brooke/Lucas/Peyton thing again. Ok, writers?
Nathan and Haley. Aww. I love these two. And the scene in the rain and kissing on the hood of the car? Hot. Well, as hot as two teenagers making out can be… I just liked the scene. Then they were so incredibly cute filling out their applications together. I’m glad those crazy kids worked it out!
Not sure where they are going with Mouth and the other annoying Brooke-wannabe but I hope that Mouth doesn’t end up hurt. Or Dan, for that matter. I thought for a second that they were gonna give him a heart but I guess not. I don’t know why I’m surprised, it’s not like he deserves a second chance from any of these people.
I’m half-heartedly watching this episode and I know it’s supposed to be the episode that touches your heart? I must not have a heart because I’m not all that touched. I like James too but I’m having a little difficulty following things. The one bright spot is Sam from Profiler. I love Ally Walker and I don’t get to see her nearly enough these days. That said, the Abby stuff is kinda of getting to me because I love Abby and I hate to see her upset.
WTF is with the preview for next week? Damn February sweeps. We always get crazy promos.
