Have I mentioned how much I love my show? Because I totally do.
But, I should talk about other TV too. I’m having a hard time remembering what I’ve watched. What’s wrong with me?! Hmm, oh, see I’ve been catching up on the backlog of shows on the TiVO so it feels like I’ve been watching things non-stop but they’re all old shows and I hate talking about things that are weeks old. I still have the last half of the last new ER to watch and then I can maybe talk about it a bit. Last night’s Daily Show and the color names had me rolling. I think that’s about it. I have a slew of Slings and Arrows to watch but I don’t usually post about that show and I’m pretty much waiting until I have the whole season so I can watch it back to back. I like it better that way.
Is it wrong that I’m glad Dave and Lori are gone? They weren’t as annoying for me in the past two legs, probably because they were finally showing a human side and bickering, but they still weren’t the greatest racers so I’m cool with them being gone. Ray and Yolanda need to step it up even though it was hard to move ahead on this leg given the huge gap in starting times. At this point, the two couples that I really dislike are Fran/Barry and Lake/Michelle.
Lake and Michelle just get on my last nerve with the way they talk to each other. They aren’t as abusive or as bad as some previous couples *cough*Jonathon and Colin*cough* but they still drive me up the wall. Fran and Barry are just as bad with their cluelessness. They may be great at directions but that’s about all they are good at and I’m not even sure we’ve ever really seen them good at that either. They suck at finding the clue boxes, even when they are obvious, and they suck at picking detours and the right person for the roadblocks. Plus, the way they tend to freak out about everything is getting old real fast.
Eric/Jeremy are probably my next least favorite. The problem is that they are good racers but extremely poor sports. At least, when it comes to who gets to the mat first. They are actually friendly during the leg itself but I think that’s because they are leeching off of everyone most of the time. When they have to start finding their own way and figuring things out on their own, they might be in more trouble. And, hey, when Phil dislikes you? You know you’ve done something wrong.
BJ/Tyler make me laugh. They are just having so much fun that, even though I found them annoying at first, I can’t help but like them. They are truly enjoying this experience and they are pretty awesome racers. Have to give them props for that. Monica/Joseph go up and down for me. One minute I think they’re cool and the next they’re both losing their cool and I’m wanting to slap them upside the head. The thing is… they’ve been fairly good at the racing so far but that kind of frustration and losing it will seriously hurt them if they make it to the final legs.
And the best part of the show? PHIL DANCING AT THE MAT!! OMG. I <3 Phil!! He's just yummy.
Why do I feel like I’ve already talked about this? Oh, no, I know why… I didn’t watch it live. I was still stuck at the car place when it came on and then I had to go back and watch it later that night. Not sure why that’s giving me the illusion of having discussed it but it does explain why I felt like something was off with my viewing of it this week. Anyway, who cares about that, well besides me and my checking account that is now out $500?
Moving along to the actual episode. Uh. Like Mother like daughter, eh? So, like I said last time, I still think Logan has a valid point. The problem is that Rory isn’t upset about the sleeping with other girls so much as the fact that he never made it clear that they were broken up. He can’t understand what she’s upset about because she’s not telling him exactly what bothers her. And I’ve come to the conclusion that that is her problem as well as Lore’s. They don’t know exactly how to express what bothers them about their situations. Until they figure it out or until they can’t keep quiet anymore, the issues aren’t going to go away.
Could the Gilmores really be thinking of moving to Stars Hollow? Seems a bit crazy to me. There must be something more to that – especially since I can’t imagine them moving into a small place just to be close to Lore and Rory. Lore better deal with the date problem soon, though, because it won’t take long to find out that she and Luke have postponed the wedding if Emily is hanging around Stars Hollow. Heck, I am surprised Kirk hasn’t filled her in already.
There was probably more but I’m blanking out on it already… Luke maybe? Here’s the thing that I don’t think Rory got. Lore isn’t bothered by the kid’s mother, she’s bothered that Luke doesn’t want to share this experience with her. And, Luke remains oblivious and I used to think that was weird for him and possibly out of character but I’ve changed my mind. Luke isn’t used to sharing his life and he especially isn’t used to dealing with things that are new to him. He’s a loner and he likes to figure out how he feels about something before he shows it. I think that’s what he’s doing. He is being blind to the fact that it bothers Lore but I think he’s legimately wrapped up in what’s happening and that’s why. It can’t always fall to Luke to “know” what’s going on in Lore’s mind. So, while it continues to bug me because I like the two of them and don’t want this to ruin them, I also don’t find it all that unbelievable.
Not cutting this one since I’m not spoiling… I just don’t like it. If cdn_tvaddict continues to like it and the WB/CW picks up for next season, I may give it another chance. For now, though, I just don’t want to share VM’s time with another show and not liking it gave me no reason to change my mind about that.
That’s it. See what I mean? I’ve been watching TV whenever I’ve been at home and yet it feels like I’m way behind. I really need to clear that TiVO off so I can stop feeling so out of it.
