Burning Question – Are you Team Jack or Team Daniel

2 Nov

Revenge Wednesday at 10pm on ABC, has quite the love triangle brewing between Emily (Emily Van Camp), Daniel (Joshua Bowman) and Jack (Nick Weschler). 

Are you Team Jack or Team Daniel, follow the link below to the article at TV Line to get more of the story.

Love Triangle

Revenge – Very Intriguing Indeed

27 Oct

I knew I it, I knew Lydia wasn’t dead, I saw her eyes flutter when they showed her on top of the cab, but logic said she had to be dead.

She is the character that will not go away. Emily got lucky when Frank went after her, but if she wakes how will she deal with her if she hasn’t lost her memory and the first word out of her mouth is “photograph”. 

Last nights episode took a break from the Revenge of the week formula, so Emily could take on a new threat Tyler; aka the Talented Mr Ripley. I can’t decide if he is in love with Daniel or just wants to take over his life.  This will eventually lead to his demise, he will be the one shot on the beach.

It’s a damn good thing Lady Victoria has so many parties, it keeps Ashley employed.  Isn’t she viewed as the help, would the rich boys really date the help? 

Someone please tell Madeline Stowe to lay off the Botox, she needs to let her face relax. It’s really tight and waxy and it detracts from her acting.

All in all this was a solid episode, it advanced the main theme, and added new intrigue with Tyler and Frank.  Can’t wait for next week.

Living in a TV World

9 Oct

If you could live in a TV show which one would it be?

My blog is named TV Happy Place, because TV is my happy place,  nothing is more relaxing or enjoyable then sitting in front of my TV and having a great episode of my favorite show or good movie wash over me.  Allowing me to tune out my day and focus on the made up world of other people.

Worlds where everyone has a beautifully furnished apartment, an awesome car, the perfect wardrobe, Apple computers, perfect hair and make-up and friends.  It doesn’t matter if their salary supports any of this, that is irrelevant in TV land. If you want reality watch the Discovery Channel and stop throwing logic at my fantasy world.

Back to my question, which TV show would you live in and would you want to take over as a main character, a supporting character or a background player?

Over the years there have been many shows I would have happily traded this life for, interestingly enough as much as I love it, Buffy The Vampire Slayer was never one of those shows. Not sure why, not that Sunnydale, the Scooby Gang, Buffy, Spike and Angel weren’t awesome it wasn’t dreamy enough. I was happy watching from afar, too much angst.

If I got the chance today, I would have to pick Revenge (ABC Wednesday at 10pm). First of all, The Hampton’s and you know what they say, location. location, location.  Second, everyone is rich , they live in fabulous homes on the beach, they wear beautiful clothes, throw incredible parties and everyone is kissing their asses.  Granted there is this pesky revenge plot thing, where people’s lives are being destroyed, that definitely dampens the mood.   To avoid being a target I would either choose to be Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) or Nolan Ross (Gabriel Mann).

Why these two characters, Emily is doing all the revenge, so basically she is having all the fun, Nolan is free from her sights and his helping her, not to mention he is a computer genius and filthy rich.

Next I would have to pick Glee (Fox Tuesdays at 8pm), I am a sucker for a spontaneous musical number, I wouldn’t to take over an existing characters life, I would like to be a new member of the Glee club, and Puck’s new GF.

Lets hear from you in the comments, what TV show past or present would you like to live in, and what character would you be.

Revenge Plot

30 Sep

So, you’ ve decided to seek revenge. Where do you start, it’s not like you can Google Revenge Consultants. Trust me I tried, so I guess we will have to apply some good old fashion project management to our plan.

First, don’t write anything down and if you do write it in code, that way if anyone finds your notes they won’t know what you are up to. Make up a code, like a doodle code, only you will know that your doodle of the box with a heart in it = the word revenge.  To everyone else it will look like you are obsessive compulsive about doodling.

Set a goal, what level of revenge are we going for; low, medium, high or super high.

Here are some examples

  • low – Neet hair remover in the shampoo, or ExLax in the brownies
  • medium – breaking up their relationship or marriage (only use this if there are no children involved, too much collateral damage)
  • high – get them fired
  • super high – a public humiliation so great they must change their name and move out of the country

None of my revenge levels include murder, well because murder is murder it is not revenge, you want them to suffer and death is over too soon.

I always think the best kind of revenge is the one that doesn’t happen right away. The person who has done you wrong, will be lulled into a false sense of security, they will think you have moved on and all is forgiven, and then wham! You strike, you do it in such a way that they don’t know it is you. They may even confide in you about the terrible events as they unfold, what better way to get satisfaction then to see the slow mental deterioration of another humans’ life and soul.

We have a goal, we have selected a level, now we need to figure out a budget.  This is where time is helpful, we can save up for our revenge plot, skip a few lattes, movies and mani-pedis and your revenge kitty will be stocked in no time.

Wardrobe, very important, if the movie V for Vendetta taught me anything, it is the importance of wardrobe, having the right look makes a big difference.

Research, go to the classics, Shakespeare had some of the best revenge plays ever, Hamlet, Othello, if you want something more modern The Godfather saga, it is packed with revenge, but again with the murder, and horses heads.

You want your revenge to be sleek and chic, so I highly recommend ABC’s new show Revenge, Wednesdays at 10pm.

It meets all the criteria, long-term planning, bank roll, fabulous wardrobe, no small children being harmed and so far she hasn’t killed anyone.

What is your revenge fantasy?  Did you ever get revenge?
