Love those Happy Ending numbers. I hope ABC makes the right decision and SOON!October 27, 2011 at 7:44 am #223128
This show didn’t air last night.October 27, 2011 at 7:15 am #230300
This was a pretty bad episode. Kathy wasn’t funny at all, or wasn’t edited well, the challenge with the perfume and the photoshoot were incredibly DUMB and the results were worse.
I dont’ even know what to think about Tyra and Shannon. This tired old boring girl like Bree, should’ve been sent home in week 1 or 2. And she gets to stay over Kayla AND Bianca?
Bianca was getting on everybody’s nerve, it was week after week of the same old angry face and annoying comments about how great she is, it can’t be that surprising. But that girl could’ve stayed longer. Kayla was always a nice contestant but became very boring. But neither one deserved to go home before Shannon.
With Bianca gone, this will end up somewhere between Allison, Laura and Lisa who keeps hanging on. I highly doubt Dominique or Angelea even come close to winning. Shannon and Alexandria better go home the next two weeks, it’s enough from both of them.October 26, 2011 at 9:28 pm #230404
This worked really well, I loved that Max’s final line ended with the Fanfare logo right with “a big, huge”…and the trumpet going up and down.
You would think that Max and Penny had the best costume, but that ZZ Top Gun guy was hilarious.
Very good episode.October 26, 2011 at 6:29 pm #225997
American Idol can be very proud that they have NEVER had a disaster quite like this episode. I can criticize Idol for hours, days even, but this was just too much of everything. Insanely over the top, the millions spent on this thing are just embarrassing and for those ratings?
Once again, Steve Jones is handsome, hot, well dressed, a gentleman, great voice but he is so not the guy for this job. I think he was rude on command because of time running out, but let’s talk about Simon, L.A and Nicole for a minute. HOW THE HELL does Paula Abdul come out as the most sane person in that bunch? The other three were so rude to each other it didn’t even come off as planned. Simon treats Nicole as if he regrets putting her on the show more than anything in his life.
And to top it off hardly any of them could actually defend their ridiculous remarks, all of them made horrible choices. These guys were extremely far off and only Paula managed to do some decent things with those groups even if Intensty is a disaster waiting to happen…for a group that will never actually happen.
The song selection alone was enough embarrasment for years. I adore Drew, seriously, but Flashdance? Baby for Rachel Crow? Very very and I mean veeeery few people had the right song. Poor Thia with that extremely weird production. And surprisingly, Melanie, who had the obvious but logical song choice was just horrible. And what the f-ck was going on with those mashups? Why did everybody decide to do them?
I hate Rachel Crow as a contestant so much. I think the girl is the sweetest thing ever, but as a contestant it was horrible.
I never would’ve thought that Lakoda Rain (still, worst name ever) would make sense, but they came out the best. Those girls better go far here or win. Same for Drew (who looked 43), Josh, Stacey and sorry, but I like Astro very much. Contrary to Rachel, I hate Astro the person, but I love Astro the act.October 26, 2011 at 9:06 am #229164
The twist with the park was great, but this was such a stupid episode. Who didn’t see the result of each storyline comming?
Is Bree really this dumb? Are we supposed to believe that the hipster would just come in, sit down and don’t care that this is for homeless people and Bree instead of throwing him out would do THIS? Common writers! Is this what the Bree you’ve been creating all these years would do?
I love that this show is over because I can’t take much more of Lynette. There was nothing good here. This great actress is humilliaiting herself with this tired, repetitive and predictable storyline. In fact, the only thing that saved this from being 100% obvious is whatever little credibility Richard Ruccollo still has and maybe he won’t be wasted like this for just one episode. But it could totally happen.
Gaby started out funny but then it got tired and by the time Carlos showed up drunk, you just knew that the “she really is just like us” bug would bite the other women and help her out.
Hated this episode.October 26, 2011 at 8:31 am #232446
I agree that at this point I only need for Emma to figure out who the mayor is, battle her and set everybody free.
What else do we need from this Pilot? Does all of that really have to take 4-6 seasons to happen?
I don’t even need for other fairytale characters to show up.October 26, 2011 at 8:22 am #224856
Jennifer Coolidge has been added to the cast (via Deadline.com)
I guess it’s a nice choice, she’s supposed to be recurring and living in their building, which would take them away from the diner where the biggest problem of the show is. I hope this means less and less of the other three men and more of Coolidge and Nick Zano, although being established already as a love interest, it can’t last that long in sitcom world, specially this early.October 26, 2011 at 5:50 am #232497
You can love a show all you want but when you start seeing that things aren’t going as great as they once were you start to fear for the worst and actually hope they end it before it gets bad.
I think the show still has it, and I will defend this show until the end, but it’s sentences like this one that tell me that perhaps the time has come, even if I love the show a lot. And on this board (or the older one) A LOT of fans were feeling this way. So yes, you can love a show and still wish for it to end.
I think the show is carried a whole lot by Baldwin and Fey and the relationship between their characters. None of the supporting characters has been strong enough for Liz Lemon to have somebody else to hold on to, so this show would be the Liz show without Baldwin as they never actually cared enough for TGS and have let Tracy, Jenna and most specially Kenneth on the side. And I don’t want to see anybody replacing Baldwin. The Office was and is a much different case.
I’m excited as hell for new episodes, but no, I wouldn’t mind if this was their last season. Six seasons of a show nobody thought would make it, nobody expected to outlast Studio 60, six years of incredibly low ratings, six years of thinking Baldwin would leave, I think NBC, award shows and this 30 Rock as a whole have done enough.October 26, 2011 at 5:38 am #224854
I thought the same thing about the shorts! But she has been wearing that huge necklace since episode 1, so the shorts can’t be that surprising. But it’s something I always appreciate, like in The Middle or Dexter.
I think this episode was good enough, but there’s something about how Kat Dennings delivers lines that I can’t seem to get over. And everything about Peaches seems lazy writing to me.October 25, 2011 at 6:42 am #231961
I’m excited to see Elfman in this. I’ve always liked her and wondered by she hasn’t gotten better things than those awful sitcoms.October 24, 2011 at 8:11 pm #232440
I don’t know what to make of this, specially where the hell it’s going to go. In the battle of “does it make sense?”, Grimm has this beat easily, even if I’m just going by trailers when it comes to Grimm…
I agree that the modern day stuff is much better than the flashbacks to the fairytales, but the real problem here is that the writers aren’t convinced that we know enough or that we can figure things out by ourselves, so the dialogue starts to become a little cheesy when it comes to revealing who’s who. “I want to see him…”You mean…” “Yes…him…”…common! We know who she means!!! We always knew! Don’t write it like that. Red Riding wearing the scarf was another lame thing. The grandma is there, we already saw the wolf, the girl has to be Red Riding, we already knooooow!
And it happened so many times, like showing Pinocchio when Geppeto talked about his son, of course it’s Pinocchio, who else would we think it was? Shrek?
They should’ve done more things like the mirror near the end, of course it’s the mirror, or the wolf in the middle of the woods, it worked better like that.
The pacing, the tone, were also off, and Jennifer Morrison was to blame here, I didn’t think she was ever comfortable with this. Lana Parrilla and Ginnifer Goodwin ended up the best here, but only in their modern day scenes, when she’s the Evil Queen, it’s back to cheesyland…or Cheesybrooke (that town name almost made me turn the t.v off).
I’ll give it one more shot out of curiosity, but it’s looking a little lame and obvious…we’ll see.October 23, 2011 at 8:09 pm #231263
I watched the premiere, and I think they created some great tense moments. I didn’t care for the first season that much and this episode didn’t do anything differently. They’re still walking around with zombies popping up every now and then. If that’s going to be the case for two seasons, then why is this even a series?
But as a premiere goes, I think it was pretty good thanks to those moments and in a “taking the show for what it is” situation. I actually liked this more than the first season.
I agree that some of the characters are extemely lame, I was though, pleasantly surprised by Laurie Holden whose character at least is clear that this doesn’t make sense and she wanted to die instead of being in this tiresome and repetitive situation.
The thing with the zombies is that they can’t do much more than they’ve already done on these 7 episodes, so the characters really need to stand out more and over half of them are useless or annoying. I would also love it if they keep leaving the “explanation” of how it got to this on the side, nobody needs another “what happened” show.October 23, 2011 at 6:16 pm #230031
I just saw last week’s episode and I can’t believe how bad it got. Now I’m even thinking Britton’s acting is bad.
I agree with everybody that Lange and Conroy are the best thing here and in this past episode, Conroy show she still has it. I also liked how they explained their characters and her death.
Other than that, I almost gave up between Britton, McDermott and even Kate Mara sucking big time on this episode.
And what is the deal with Dennis O’Hare? Such a waste of talent…October 22, 2011 at 2:34 pm #223187
The best moment had to be that Blood Cleaning commercial at the beginning with Kris Polaha, specially the end with him just looking at the camera and that “yeah…my wall is blood free bitches” look he made.
This show…..damn it I love it. Each week is just another plot twist more ridiculous than the one before. Brigitte really wants to be in prison forever if she ever gets caught. I also agree that Gemma will be back (hopefully blonde or brunette).
I must say, the way they’re keeping Siobhan in Paris is actually working in the show’s favor as I really really want to know what’s going on, but I don’t care that much to be desperate right now, it’s something to look forward too. The stupidity in New York (mainly Machado’s) is keeping me interested as it is.
Next week looks like Agent Machado will teach us just how dumb he can be, when he goes to ask “Siobhan” for more info on Brigitte, specially when he should know that Brigitte must have zero idea who Gemma is/was.
