I keep thinking I’m forgetting something on Sundays until I realize it’s because I’m used to watching The L Word and it’s no longer on. Plus, I was watching Big Love but it really wasn’t my cup of tea and I eventually decided it was silly to keep trying to get into it. It’s odd not to have something I need to watch at 10PM on Sundays. However, it makes keeping up with Sunday shows much easier than any other day of the week. *g*
I missed the first few minutes of the episode but I’m assuming it had to do with Paige rescuing her charge? I was a little confused throughout the episode because it felt like I had missed something in between this episode and the last episode. It was nice to see that Billie was struggling with Christy’s accusations against the sisters but I don’t get how what she saw in the dreams proved anything? Maybe I’m just being obtuse but nothing in those dreams was particularly selfish. And, also, wouldn’t you always expect someone’s dreams to be selfish? I mean, that’s kinda the point of dreams. Plus, Paige wasn’t selfish at all. She followed herself at first instead of her charge but then she snapped out of it and demanded to be let out. If anything, she proved that her selfish dream couldn’t win out over her duty.
Whatever. This is why I can’t over think this show or I get annoyed. How many episodes do we have left? How come no one else knows about the “Ultimate Power” and isn’t worried? Not that demons would be worried but it’s not like the sisters are getting much help from anyone good either. It’s weird how they used to have all these people who would aid them in the past and none of them are around right now. Oops. See, I’m doing it again.
That scene with Gaby screaming about the baby at the end? That was just hard to watch. I guess that’s a testament to Eva’s acting but mostly it made me want to change the channel. I’m not sure what to think about the baby storyline. It was a bit too cartoonish for me at first so it’s making it hard for me to take it seriously now. Of course, the way they went about adopting the baby pretty much makes protesting this new development pointless. Should have seen it coming, I suppose.
The little sequence of shots with the way Carl keeps leaving women was funny, especially when he didn’t get away with it with Evie. And his smashing into the dump truck was funny. Dump truck. Get it? Heh! The Susan and Evie stuff that followed was also slightly amusing but this is exactly how Susan gets herself into trouble. She can’t just do the right thing and stay away from Evie.
Other than that, this episode didn’t do much for me. It felt like it was a positioning episode, like they are getting things into place for the last few episodes of the season. I don’t much care about the neighbors. That storyline turned out to be crap. They needed a mystery to replace last year’s mystery and it turned out to be a dud. I suspect the son will poison the mother but I wish they were moving because they bore me. As for the rest, I’m still waiting to see where those story lines are going.
On the schedule for Monday: Prison Break, How I Met Your Mother, The Apprentice, Everwood, and What About Brian
