Outrageous! [Sep. 6th, 2006|12:42 pm]
We squee at TV

Stoked about the return of Outrageous Fortune. Such was the collective joy at my flat, that we bailed and went to Kara's (where they actually get tv3) to watch it. And she'd made fruit crumble! With ice cream!

I dig Outrageous.

Grrrrrrrr more Girls [Aug. 31st, 2006|05:04 pm]

Okay, so I know it's been a while since Sunday, but I am still SO VERY ANGRY with the finale of the Gilmore Girls. What were you thinking Lorelei? And also, waaah, Rory sad. Not happy. Not happy at all. And don't think that sneaking in Sonic Youth and Yo La Tengo as buskers is going to make up for it.

Did they have to put down the dog? Wasn't Izzy cuddled up with a corpse and Alex actually being nice enough? MY GOD! Those writers are so damn cruel. I'm totally boycotting the rest of the series...

And then there was ER [Aug. 15th, 2006|02:42 pm]

New season, and how lame was it last night? The one joke:

"Who is that Morris guy?"
"He's the chief resident."
"... But seriously, who is he?"

That sums the programme up completely: instead of trying to do anything novel or interesting, they bring in a joke to replace Mark Green and Carter, who at least provided some sort of moral centre to the show. Oh, and nurse-doctor tension. Wow, I've never seen that before and yet seeing what Kristen Johnston (remember her from Third Rock) might do to the role is the only interesting thing still going for ER. It is not enough.

AAAGH!!!


That was just toooo much!!

Burke thrashing around on the bed like that! Christina standing by doing nothing!

No beeping on Denny's heart monitor! Izzy is going to get kicked off the programme!

I actually couldn't handle that.

Okay, holy fuck, who else was grateful that their flatmates were out last night so that they didn't hear you yelling "IZZY NO! DON'T! DON'T CUT IT! GEORGE, DON'T LET HER CUT IT! FUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!" at the TV?

Woah.

Okay, I know this is a bit of a couple of weeks ago squee, but I am proud to announce that I have TOTALLY figured out what the fuck was going on with Lost: the whole island was an elaborate set for the Harbor School Graduation Dance. Yes, that's right, it was part of The OC. How do I know this? Simple. Marissa is evil, as everyone knows. Their dances are ridiculously over the top and expensive. It's not unthinkable that they'd book out an island and hire some actors to add to the atmosphere. Plus, they totally gave it away on Lost when they had Alan fucking-Jim-from-Neighbours Dale come in for the last episode to play a bad guy, and when it transpired that the boat the Scottish guy got marooned in was called Newport Beach.

Oh JJ Abrams, you thought you were so smart, but I totally fooled you.

Big Love!!! [Jul. 28th, 2006|12:56 pm]
We squee at TV

wcimy
The first two episodes screened on Wednesday night. I was utterly drawn into it. Am I the only one who's fascinated by polygamy? (The friendly neighbour says I'm "poly-curious").

I love the way they make it appear normal! Kind of like how you get drawn into thinking that Humbert Humbert's not so bad, or Raskolnikov really has had a rough deal. Or maybe not.

Anyway, I'm all a-squee about this particular hour of tv. Bring on next Wednesday, bring it NOW.

How can it feel this wrong? [Jul. 28th, 2006|09:35 am]

Last night I got sucked in to watching 20/20 because I was promised billionaire brats, but the first story was about a drunk driver and a rugby player he killed. Firstly I wonder why the dead guy had to be defined as a rugby player - like that makes his death more tragic because he was obviously a more important member of society than say a soccer player, but mostly I wonder why oh why they chose the piece of music to play in the background that they did. Sure, they wanted something soft, something sad, but couldn't they have found something more tasteful than Portishead's 'Roads'?

Shortland Feat [Jul. 27th, 2006|09:21 am]

Remember when the Shortland Street writers were kind of tongue in cheek instead of all "oh we're a public hospital now, so we must be super earnest" ? I think they're starting to get some of their mojo back. Recently they've started doing theme episodes, in which there's a limited amount of characters and a certain setting (On the Marae, On Nightshift) and I thought last night's episode was a rather good return to form, even if it was borrowing heavily from the quirky episodes of like, Grey's Anatomy or Dawson's Creek. Any episode that starts out with someone with a cellphone up their anus is okay by me.
