At least that’s what I’m telling myself.
So here are some thoughts/updates/internet junk for you to enjoy.
The Walking Dead: Somewhere on my harddrive I have the beginnings of a full out review / blow-by-blow of the entire series. I’ve avoided working on it / posting since if you’re not watching the show yet, you should and my posts aren’t really going to interest you. And if you are watching the show, I doubt my brilliant insights of “OMG DARYL IS MY FAVORITE!” are going to interest you. For now I’ll just say “OMG I THOUGHT THEY KILLED DARREL OR DARYL OR HOWEVER YOU SPELL HIS NAME AND THEN I WOULD HAVE CRIED TEARS OF LEMON ZEST!*”
*I’ve been watching a lot of Chopped and Iron Chef lately
Hell on Wheels: There’s nothing explicitly *wrong* with this show, it’s just… there’s not a whole lot of good in it. I’ll still watch, if only because of the cheap ploy of hiding a sneak peak of next week’s Walking Dead before the third or fourth commercial break.
Once Upon a Time: Total blonde softie from House stars as blonde crusted softie in poor man’s Fairy Tale Theatre. I love Emma. I love that she’s a bail bondswoman and she has a superpower (she can tell when people are lying) and she had a kid when she was 18 and gave it up. She’s strong and a little damaged and edgy without tattoos. Unfortunately the rest of the show is rather piss-poor. Instead of “Monster of the Week” they have “Poorly Rehashed Fairy Tale Retelling of the Week.” They started strong tonight by blowing up Cinderella’s fairy godmother, but it was all downhill from there. Quite the pity. The general premise would’ve made an *excellent* miniseries (evil queen transports all of fairy tale world into upstate New York or Massachusetts or some small town in a state up North without any memory of who they are and Emma–Snow White and Prince Charming’s daughter–is the destined hero).
Terra Nova: Still dead to me. Maybe one day someone will splice all of Taylor’s scenes together so I can watch those and weep silently to myself.
Twilight: I would be lying if I said I wasn’t planning to see this with my roommate. I would be doubly lying if I said I was going to watch it sober.
Snow White and the Huntsman: The trailer is up, and it looks promising. I love the forbidden forest filled with evil take. Gorgeous.
