4/12 Thursday What You Should Watch

12 Apr

The Vampire Diaries is a repeat, but there is still plenty of new TV to watch tonight.

Even though I was pretty hard on the Scandal pilot I will be back tonight, this series has a lot of potential it may just take a few episodes for it to settle in.

6 Apr

Great Premise + heavy handed writing x over acting = not going to be back next season.

Lets get the obvious out of the way, it was a pilot, and a lot can change between this episode and the next, so I am going to give this another shot next week.

I don’t know why I thought I would like this, I dont like Grey’s Anatomy or Private Practive and I think Shonda Rhimes is overrated, but I like Kerry Washington and Henry Ian Cusack.  I figured what the heck, at least it’s not about doctors.

What worked

  • the pacing, the editing and the sound mixing
  • Kerry Washington (sometimes)
  • Henry Ian Cusack – all the time
  • Darby Stanchfield – love her smart alec investigator, although she isnt’ written good enough to touch Kalinda’s boots she will do
  • Sully’s torment over being gay, he would rather be a murderer, than sacrifice his image

What didn’t work

  • the lazy set up, using a new hire to introduce us to the players and how the “crisis management”  game works was insulting
  • the new hire, this weak character thrown into the deep end, she has to be given the “don’t cry” speech on her first day (i would love someone to give that to a male character, I would love to see a male character cry at work)
  • Kerry Washington, when she is given lame preachy dialogue to deliver
  • Stephen’s proposal sub-plot

Perhaps the most ridiculous moment of the show, the president played by Tony Goldwyn putting the moves on and kissing Olivia Pope in front of the open windows in the Oval office. Secret service, snipers every where, really show, really.

Thursday 2/16 What You Should Watch

16 Feb

The Vampire Diaries was pretty much a yawn fest last week.  Lets see if we can step it up this week. Judging from the description below, it looks like more of the same. Bonnie and her mom are back, boring. And big surprise Elijah proposes something to Damon and Stefan that puts Elena in danger.  There was a running joke on Buffy, whenever Dawn was in danger Buffy used to say it must be Tuesday (the same day the show aired). It must be Thursday since Elena is in danger. 

I really hope they wrap this originals storyline up soon, there is still time to salvage the rest of the season.
