What did you watch?
soaps: DOOL - Kayla throws a hissy fit about Joey "confessing", while
Tripp "gets away with everything". Tripp overhears this and wants to
leave town, but I think stupid Claire talked him out of it. Meanwhile,
Brady seems to have "lost it" re: Nicole and Eric.
GH - Honestly, I wasn't that interested... There's more DRAMAH re:
Hayden/Rachel and her being blackmailed... (I guess Budig is on the way
out, which isn't so great, tho...) Also, Ava continues to be a shut-in.
And Julian's trial begins.
Blood Drive (recorded) - "The Chopsocky Special". This was
disappointing - I was expecting an homage to 1970s era "king fu"
movies, but we barely got that at all. Instead, the episode was a
bait-and-switch and was mostly about a near-death Arthur on a "vision
quest". The latter started well enough, with Officer Aki as his
spirit-guide (sidenote: Aki turns out to be the daughter of the woman
who owned the Chinese restaurant they stopped at - I'm not sure if
there's going to be later payoff from that...), but it lost momentum
once Aki was no longer Arthur's guide. Meanwhile, in the "real world",
Grace frantically tries to keep Arthur alive, while doubting the
intentions of the old woman who owns the Chinese restaurant. In the
end, it looks like Arthur has disappeared, leaving Grace bewildered...
Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll (recorded) - "Tramps Like Us" and "Ghosts of
Skibbereen" (ep's #2.7 & 2.8). I still had 4 of these left over from
last summer, so decided to start clearing them out. Suffice it to say
that I still find season #2 to be woefully inferior to the first
season, and can completely understand why FX axed it. I disliked most
of ep. #2.7, until near the end when Johnny and Gigi get ambushed by
Flash and Ava who reveal to Johhny and Gigi, with the therapist's help,
that they are now together.
In the second one, Rehab and Bam Bam's ridiculous Broadway show
premieres (and of course it's a critical hit) which allows more time
for Campbell Scott to ham it up. Meanwhile, Johnny and Gigi both want
to confront Flash and Ava, but that doesn't work out like they
All Hallows Eve (The Netflix) - I wanted something on in the background
last night, while I worked on something else, so I decided to check
this out after either Fred or Ice mentioned how awful they thought it
And, man, this was *slight*! Even for this kind of flick, this was
slight! It was like somebody took a circa-2000 DCOM script, and
substantially dumbed it down, and then decided to film it, circa-2016!
(Huh?!) Not much to say about this - just that it wasn't very good.
Recorded for later: Lego Star Wars..., The Mist, and Zoo.
