Random Observations and Some Bitching

Hello folks!  Time for another brain-dump.

Babbling and bitching under the cut.  May include finale spoiler-talk and swearing.



1.  In case you didn't hear, the  DETROIT RED WINGS ARE IN THE STANLEY CUP FINALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  *dies from glee*

2.  CSI: I can't believe they fucking killed Warrick!  I knew Gary Dourdan was having some personal issues and was leaving the show, but did they really have to kill him?!  The last time CSI upset me this much was when Miami killed off Tim Speedle (Rory Cochrane).  Bastards.   

3.  I'm still shocked that CBS canceled Moonlight.  Fuckers.  Even though they left us with more questions, at least we didn't get a ginormous cliffhanger concerning Mick and Beth's relationship.  However, I really want to know more about Josef, Coraline, and who the HELL gave Talbot that list of vamps!! 

I already signed up for the Amazon alert for when Moonlight becomes available on dvd.

4.  I still haven't watched the finale of Bones, but will try to tonight.  Did you know that there is a Bones Official Companion book?!  Also?  The previous episode, The Wannabe in the Weeds?  How fucking AWESOME was Tempe blowing away that crazy, stalker-bitch after she (accidentally) shot Booth?!?!?!?!  The only downer of that episode (besides poor Booth getting shot) was the fact that they used Far Away, twice.  Hello?!  Only Chad Kroeger gets to sing that song!!!  Everybody else just ruins it!!!!

5.  I got my latest issue of EW.  It's a "special double issue".  You wanna know what's so fucking special about it?  The cover and over 50 goddamn pages of it is devoted to Sex and the City because the movie is coming out (they even have an episode guide in the article, for Pete's sake!).  That ninety-gazillion page count doesn't even include the full-page product-placement ads (including a giant centerfold ad for Glaceau water)!

Now, no offense to fans of the show, but I never got into it and frankly, never understood the appeal of it.  That said, I'm glad those people who are fans of SATC are getting their movie.  But, did EW really need to bludgeon us to death with it?

The best part of the whole thing is the 3 page story on Chris Noth.   Chris is pretty much the only reason I'm still watching L&O: CI.  *sigh*  He'll always be Mike Logan to me.

I can only hope that The X-Files: I Want to Believe gets the same high-profile treatment as the SATC movie.

6.  Also in EW: in their tiny EW.com section, they have a pic of JDM!  Too bad it's from when he was Denny on that sleazeball medical show.  It's for their Famous Finales photo gallery.  No, Supernatural isn't in there, but they did manage to pick some good ones!

7.  From EW's Hitlist section: Without mentioning Ryan Reynolds, Alanis (Morissette) says she hit "rock bottom" after breakup.  She didn't give details, but fans are already poring over the lyrics to her cryptic new single, "Scarlett Johansson Is a Flaming Bag of Ho".  HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  *snerk*

8.  Apparently, a movie adaptation of 21 Jump Street is in the works.  NOOOOOOO!!!!!  That being said, do you think they'd be able to get The Depp to cameo?  I'll bet you dollars to donuts that Chet Marvin Moron gets a part.

9.  I cannot believe that ABC canceled Women's Murder Club.  Fuckers.  Hey, L&O:SVU needs a new ADA.  They should snap up Angie Harmon or one of the other talented ladies from WMC.

10. Likewise for FOX canceling New Amsterdam.  NA had some weak parts (mostly the Crime of the Week stuff), but I really liked seeing John's memories of his "past" lives.  I always liked that on Highlander too.  Besides, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau was very easy on the eyes and I've liked Zuleikha Robinson ever since The Lone Gunmen. 

11. Did I mention that the DETROIT RED WINGS ARE IN THE STANLEY CUP FINALS?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

12. EW does get points back for giving us intel (oooh, one whole page...slow down EW!) on Joss Whedon's upcoming Dollhouse,starring Eliza Dushku.  This one looks interesting.  Hopefully, FOX will treat Joss better this time around.

13. L&O:SVU got rid of Adam Beach.  Does this mean we'll get more Munch next season?  One can only hope!

14. I haven't watched the finale of reaper yet, but last week, the Devil said something to faux!sam about "put away those puppy dogs", referring to his eyes when he asked for a favor.  Yeah, still ripping off Supernatural.  
 
Dear reaper,
Please dispose of faux!sam and
make Sock the Devil's right-hand man.
Thanks,
An anti-faux!sam viewer

15. Is anyone going to watch In Plain Sight on USA?  It looks like it might be good.  I think it will be a good companion show for L&O:CI on Sundays.

16. I got my issue #4 of Supernatural Magazine, but haven't looked through it yet.  I think I'm too mesmerized by the cover.

17. Cinequest is releasing a bust of Demon!John.  Unfortunately, it looks as bad as the one of Dean.  Maybe they should just stick to doing busts of the MotW.  Power Star Collectibles is also carrying these sculptures. 

18. I have a temporary dungeon-mate.  She's going to be running the latest hare-brained scheme of my boss (a restaurant) and because we are still doing construction, she doesn't have an office yet.  Lucky me.  Actually, she's really a nice lady, but I still get the creepy feeling she was sent to spy on me.  Kidding!  Kinda-sorta.  *shifty eyes*

19.  Burn Notice season 2 premieres on July 10!

20. 
THE DETROIT RED WINGS ARE IN THE STANLEY CUP FINALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Baby, it's cold down here in my dungeon and the weather outside is sunny but chilly.  Also?  Time to scrounge up some lunch.  I should get something hot, but I'm jonesing for a greek salad.
  
ETA: Holy fuck, I almost forgot!  Michigan has FINALLY gotten a Sonic!  Now I don't have to be tortured by  those damn commercials anymore!  For the Michiganders on my flist, I believe it's in Southgate.

1. They did? How'd I miss that?

2. They killed Warrick?!

Dear Shows:

When a cast member wants to leave, it is very cliche to kill his/her character. Very few shows do it well.

And while we're on the topic, killing/removing a character to "shake things up" is very selfish of you. Even fewer shows do that well.

Knocking your collective heads together so your good sense shakes loose,

Whimsy

3. There are rumors floating about that the CW might pick up Moonlight. *crosses fingers and hopes it's true* (Of course, that wouldn't exactly fit the demographic the CW is going for . . .)

4. I have the official companion. It's pretty darn nice. *is still a bit pissed about season finale*

5. I liked Sex and the City, but it's a little hard to get terribly excited about the movie. Long live Mike Logan!

6. Any pic of JDM is good. Especially if it's that one shot from PS I Love You . . .

7. *shakes head*

8. You're kidding? *hides from the horror*

9. I really miss Angie Harmon's ADA. She was a hoot. What happened to Casey. (SVU kinda fell off my radar.)

10. Um, never watched it. *ducks*

11. They did? Why, that's just peachy keen! (And speaking of peachy keenness whatever happend to our Peachy?)

12. That'll be worth it. There's already plans afoot to stem off the inevitable cancellation. (Boy, fans sure have a lot of faith in Fox, huh)

13. I think Adam Beach left of his own volition, but I really don't know. Is Munch still on that show? *is shocked*

14. *snigger*

15. I'm really looking forward to In Plain Sight. I kinda wish it was running with Burn Notice.

16. *waiting for it to hit the bookstore*

17. I won't look then. The Dean on was traumatic enough, thank you.

18. Good thing you're not paranoid. At least you two can huddle together for warmth.

19. Woot! That'll really help with the hellaitus blues. As will Psych. And the Closer.

20. You know, I may have heard that somewhere . . .

You're so lucky you got a Sonic! Minnesota still doesn't, so continued to be teased, I must.

2. Well, they showed the Under-sheriff shooting him in the neck as he was sitting in his car. *cries* At least I still have Nick to drool over. Maybe they'll give Archie some more screen-time.

3. I'm hoping somebody picks up Moonlight! CBS has definitely shot themselves in the foot on this one.

9. Diane Neal (Casey) left the show. I don't know why though.

10. No biggie. I almost gave up on it because the CotW stuff was irritating me...especially his boss.

13. Munch's screen-time got halved. I don't know if it was his choice or the show's, but I loved Munch ever since Homicide. *sigh* There's another show I miss.

15. Yeah...I was thinking it might make a better pairing with Burn Notice too.

GO WINGS!!!

2. More Archie is always good. I love the lab techs on CSI.

3. Tell me about it. It won a People's Choice Award!!

9. Huh.

13. There never seems to be a lot of Munch. I've read articles saying that the actor loves his schedule.

15. We'll see. I hope it's as good as it looks. I notice they've started switching the funny ads to the serious ones. I'm loving all of it.

Now, who are these Wings, again, please?

1. I'm happy for you. I wanted Philly to make it to the finals (even though they are one of Buffalo's arch-enemies) because their goalie was one of ours for along time and I wanted him to do well.

2. I don't know why I'm shocked, but for some reason I thought they were going to put him in jail or something (I don't really watch CSI, but that's the impression I got from a commercial).

Hell, I'm still mad at Angel for killing off Doyle, so this will always be a sore subject for me.

3. I hope it happens, I haven't seen all of Moonlight yet but it had potential.

4. I haven't seen any of Bones since the strike, but I'm already spoiled (and annoyed) for the finale without even trying.

5. Good to know I'm not the only female who's not into Sex and the City.

6. JDM was really sexy as Denny...especially for a dying man.

8. 21 Jump Street is in my Netflix queue, but I'm almost afraid to watch it again and have it be crappy.

14. That's so wrong it's not even funny. That's like someone saying a ten year old is a karate master in the presence of Bruce Lee.

15. I was really looking forward to In Plain Sight even before I found out that Christian from Dancing with the Stars was playing her boyfriend. He is really really hot.

19. I am so excited about Burn Notice. I've caught a few reruns lately and it's making me very eager.

2. Didn't the actor who played Doyle commit suicide or something? I think that happened before I really got into it, because I barely remember him.


14. I suffer through it for Sock & the Devil. Also so that I can constantly bitch about how it's stealing from Supernatural because I know how to hold a grudge like that (ya hear me DODemon?!).

19. I've been catching the random rerun. Oh Michael! *swoon*

2. It was either suicide or a drug overdose (or both). I can't remember. *is sad* He was only in the first 9 episodes.

Well, I'm still a little vexed over the deaths of Langly, Byers, & Frohike, so I'm probably not the best person to comment on shows using death as a way of getting rid of a character.

I had forgotten about that!! I wasn't watching X-Files at that point, but my mom told me about it.

*wonders if The Lone Gunmen is out on DVD*

*bounces*

YES! TLG is out on dvd!!!!! I have it, but I haven't broken it out yet, so I don't kow what kind of extras came with it.

Goody! I loved that show when it was on. Chalk up one more reason to join Netflix.

1. nope, must have missed that... LOL

3. *smacks CBS* and yeah, i want to know who sent that list too! *aaaaaaaahhh*

5. oooh Chris Noth. pretty. *guh*

uhm.

9. Angie Harmon was already on L&O classic.... wonder how she could show up on SVU.

13. i liked Adam Beach. saw him in a few other shows here and there, too. i liked Jesse L. Martin from L&O classic, too.

19. *bounces*

3. *primes flamethrower for CBS*

5. Yes...yes he IS!!!!!!

9. She was in a handful of eps of SVU during the first season as the interim ADA. Before they got Alex Cabot. Actually, they should just bring her back! Too bad Claire (Jill Hennessy) is dead...she was one of my favorites from L&O.

13. I liked Adam in other stuff more than SVU, but thought he did pretty good with what he had there. I really didn't like how they had his character leave either.

19. Unfortunately, I don't think my S1 dvds will arrive with enough time for me to have a review marathon before then. I randomly ordered them when I saw that Amazon finally had the Witchblade dvds available. *shrugs* Yeah, I know, they don't really go together, but what the Hell.

9. yeah, i liked Claire too.... but then again, i liked Crossing Jordan too. :D

19. Witchblade!!!! *eeeeeeee* (i have those ..... from the internet. uhm. yeah.)

USA is airing Burn Notice S1 thursdays at 11 eastern.... :)

9. Crossing Jordan was really a pretty good show.

19. SHHHHHHHH! I bought a bootleg set at the Austin Fangoria this year because I could NOT stand waiting any longer.

LALALALALA!!!!

1. Woo Hoo!!
2. Yeah, Wow!
3. I was just getting into that show, too. I didn't watch it at first because I knew it would too Angel-ish, but I admit I liked it.
4. I saw Bones. Wow.
5. I watched a couple eps of SatC. Never saw the appeal.
6. I only watched that sleazeball medical show for JDM. Mmmmm
9. I watched WMC. I liked it well enough, but I can see why it would be canceled.
10. Tried watching New Amsterdam. Didn't hold my interest.
11. RED WINGS!!!
13. I kinda liked Adam Beach, so kind of a bummer
14. The first episode I watched was a rerun. I wasn't really paying attention until I heard a woman say, "Would you like some pie??" I looked up and saw the same woman who was in Supernatural Bedtime Stories offering the lost hiking couple pie before carving up the husband! I yelled at the TV, "NO!! DON'T HAVE HER PIE!!"
15. Don't have cable
16. I actually forgot to get issue 3. I'm so bummed.
17. I saw that. Those are the most hideous things I've ever seen. I could do better. And I'm artistically challeneged.
18. Heh. Good luck.
20. LET'S GO RED WINGS! wOOT wOOT!!!

21. Sonic doesn't show where it is on there website yet, but YAY!

1. What?!?!?
11. No shit!!!
17. Fugly.
20. I really can't see you making that wedding.
raputathebuta
May. 22nd, 2008 11:20 pm (UTC)
17. Isn't that awful?! Fugly is definitely the word. The Scarecrow one looks really cool, but frankly, I'd rather have a TrueBlue model of the Impala than Demon!John or Dean.

20. Yeah, unfortunately, it's family. But, I have a feeling we'll be making our escape pretty quick. The ceremony is at 4 with the reception to follow right after. Game starts at 8, so maybe I'll only miss like the 1st period. *prays*
