The Weekly Summer Round-Up Thoughts!

Posted by Dustin on 07.22.2015 at 7:56 pm

Big Brother 17
With Jeff out of the house, it’s one less bit of eye candy gone. I didn’t think I would be, but I’m not on the crazy dentist’s side. I hope he wins the whole thing given he’s been made the go to pawn. This week Audrey has at least finally brought some drama into the game. The feeds and after dark have been terribly boring.

Extant
I can’t believe how much I’m enjoying this show, even with all the changes. I’m pretty sure the ratings are still terrible and it won’t get a third season, so I’m enjoying it while it lasts.

The Fosters
I absolutely HATE this whole Callie and AJ romance. This is so “been there done that” on a show that isn’t that old. It’s Brandon all over. Nip it in the bud and move on. I still have this feeling that AJ’s brother is the one who hit the Fosters. Loved the last episode that dealt with Anna’s post-pardum, and glad they don’t have her using again. A re-cast Jesus will soon be showing up, but wish he wouldn’t. I don’t like the character and haven’t missed him at all.

Falling Skies
I’ve actually been digging this past season. Why did they take so long to get good again? Pope going crazy was long overdue. I hope Tom takes his ass out!

Mistresses
I’m still loving Calista’s character. She and Joss are owning this show right now so much that I honestly don’t miss Savy. Sure if they could bring her back I would love it, but I am shocked it’s still so good without her. Karen’s storyline is getting sticky, and something tells me the wife will end up dying and the husband will be left with tremendous guilt. April’s storyline, we can all see she’s going to end up with Zack at some point. As usual, boring!

Pretty Little Liars
This show is starting to annoy me. Every week it’s been someone different is A, and now we are back to, surprise, Charles! Charles is alive and is A. I’m thinking it’s either that Andrew guy, who was dismissed way too easily, or somehow it will be Ezra. If it’s Ezra then that would be a sick twist.

Proof
I’ve started watching TNT’s “Proof” and really enjoy it, I’m just not sure where it’s going. Some episodes have been better than others, but it seems to be lacking a story stringing them together other than the main character’s own near death experience.

Under The Dome
Please let this be the last season, as this show has become awful. It’s now just “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” meets “The Stepford Wives.” I expect better than re-hashed movies from something based on Steven King’s work.

The Whisperers
So we learned Drill, or someone like him, has been on earth before. Basically Drill’s planet is dying (ala E.T.) and they seem to try and be invading earth so they can live here. I’m going to hang in there, but this show needs to amp it up a little. It needs to get away from the E.T. similarities. Ooh, E.T. is bad this time so it’s very different. Not really!

Zoo
I started watching this mini-series event, which I felt started out strong, but now I’m a little tired of it. I hope this doesn’t become a new series like “Under the Dome,” which also started out as a one season mini-series event too. End it on a high note please!

The Whisperers and Under The Dome Thoughts and Spoilers

The Whisperers and Under The Dome Thoughts and Spoilers

Posted by Dustin on 07.12.2015 at 7:49 pm

I’m really loving “The Whisperers” on ABC still, and the last episode where Drill showed himself to be some kind of energy form was great. They are heavily hinting that Drill is an alien, and he needs an energy source to feed on, which is the glowing thing they found in the desert. The kids also mentioned that Drill misses his family. Is he a stranded alien? Is he trying to bring his family home? I’m feel like this could very easily be a reinvention of Disney’s “Watcher in the Woods,” which was based on a book about an alien child that got trapped on earth during an inter-dimensional field trip. Disney totally changed the story from the book when they made it into their classic 80s scary movie. I actually wrote a blog post a few years ago recapping the differences between the Watcher in the Woods movie and the book.

Over the “Under the Dome,” I’m honestly only watching this for the eye candy and to see it through to the end. So far this season has been horrible. This too looks like some kind of alien life force invasion that is ripping of “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” at this point. I also hate that we keep going from hating Big Jim to rooting for him.

Spoilers for the next episodes of both shows below . . .

June/July Show Thoughts – A Mixed Bag

June/July Show Thoughts – A Mixed Bag

Posted by Dustin on 07.05.2015 at 5:52 pm

Trying to keep up with everything, really quick thoughts on everything I’m watching . . .

Big Brother 17
I’m just not feeling this season. I keep watching and hope I’ll get hooked by something, anything. So glad Jace is gone and really want The Rockstar Dentist to go too!

Extant
I actually really enjoyed the reboot and where they are taking it, but her husband’s partner . . . ohhhh she is a witch!

The Fosters
I’m not digging that Callie is into yet another one of her foster brothers. Definitely feel bad for Brandon getting the boot from his camp.

Falling Skies
I have yet to see the season premier, I tried real hard to watch last weekend but couldn’t get into it. I’ve meant to watch it again all week.

Mistresses
Absolutely loving the new character Calista! She’s great. April’s story is still the weakest, and Karen’s is just another twist on her story from the first season.

Pretty Little Liars
I don’t think Charle’s is dead and if Sarah isn’t Charles, then she is on his team. Though the last show seemed to try and make it seem like she couldn’t be Charles . . .

Under The Dome
So It seems we are back to aliens are behind the dome and trying to take over the Earth again. That’s the only thing I can think with the whole “hive mentality” they have going on.

The Whisperers
Like with UTD, I am back to thinking Drill is an alien force.

The Whisperers, What is Drill’s Mission?

The Whisperers, What is Drill’s Mission?

Posted by Dustin on 06.29.2015 at 10:10 am

Last week’s episode seemed to pretty much reset much of what we know is going on with ABC’s “The Whisperers.” It had appeared that Drill was using kids of military intelligence families to cause a nuclear reactor to melt down. He did, but then he contained the explosion. So he doesn’t want to bring harm to anyone in terms of a mass causality, at least not yet. It seems the entire thing was a show to let the world, or at least the military, know of his existence.

With Drill’s presence known, what will his next move be? It seems like he will have to do something on a global scale next. Also what is Drill? I’m starting to think this is NBC’s “Revolution,” just in a different direction. Is he a nanotech gone wrong and turned into a self-sufficient AI?

Under The Dome Season 3 Premiere. Plus Spoilers!

Under The Dome Season 3 Premiere. Plus Spoilers!

Posted by Dustin on 06.25.2015 at 10:06 pm

So “Under The Dome” had a two hour premiere tonight. What did we learn about the dome? Did the people get free? Those are good questions, the first of which we still don’t have answers to! It seems nobody actually escaped the dome as we thought they did, but were held in these cocoons in the tunnels by Melanie, who created a false world for them. Barbie’s father returned the egg to Melanie, only to get killed for it. Julia and Big Jim, the only people who didn’t get sucked into Melanie’s fake world, finally freed everyone by the end of the episode. Melanie claimed they didn’t understand what they were doing, but Big Jim & Julia didn’t care. Big Jim shattered the egg, which opened all the cocoons. Unfortunately two new people came out of two of the cocoons. Christine (Marg Helgenberger) and Eva (Kylie Bunbury) were in the fake world Melanie created for the people of Chester’s Mill, and seemed to be part of the whole conspiracy to keep everyone trapped in that fake world. Now however they are trapped in the dome too. Who are they? Where did they come from? That’s a good question. Something tells me they may work for the company that Barbie’s father was a part of, and now Eric La Salle (“ER”) seems to be in charge of. That dude was a dick on “ER,” and he’s a dick on this show too!

Honestly, I feel like that was two hours of my life I’ll never get back. Hopefully the promos promising all will be revealed this season aren’t full of it, because I don’t know how much longer I can hang onto this show that seems to be going nowhere.

Pretty Little Liars & The Fosters: Thoughts And Spoilers!

Pretty Little Liars & The Fosters: Thoughts And Spoilers!

Posted by Dustin on 06.21.2015 at 7:42 pm

So this is just a catch-up post for “The Fosters” and “Pretty Little Liars.” On “The Fosters,” I really liked Callie working things out with Jude’s dad, and the speech Robert gave her about how he was her father as he raised her. I also loved that Robert finally realized he’s been treating his wife like his second choice since Callie came into their lives. I really didn’t like how he kept making it seem like he settled because he couldn’t have the woman he wanted. I also detest the pre-madonna that Brandon has been stuck working with at the summer music program and knew she would sabotage him the minute she was able to. Eff dat beyotch!

I still worry that AJ’s missing brother is the one who hit the Fosters’ car in the mid-season finale. He is clearly in hiding for something. I also think Anna is going to dump her kid and run. I really hope Marianna isn’t pregnant from her night of poor judgement!

Over to “Pretty Little Liars,” most of the current shows have focused on the girls and their inability to adjust back to normal life after Charles. By the end of the last episode Alison and Jason had enough info to confront their father and get answers. From the spoilers below, it definitely seems like they’ve spun the twin-twist from the books and made it Jason’s twin instead of Alison’s. I still think Jason may be in on this with Charles, but something also rubs me wrong with Sarah. I think Charle’s obsession with Alison may have caused him to start to become Alison’s twin . . . which would be an interesting twist on the twin twist!

Spoilers for the next few shows for both below . . .

Mistresses Returns Sans Savi. Plus Spoilers . . .

Mistresses Returns Sans Savi. Plus Spoilers . . .

Posted by Dustin on 06.18.2015 at 10:15 pm

So the two hour premiere of “Mistresses” just ended. I really thought the show would be drastically different without the Savi/Alyssa Milano character, but it was just as good. Savi, having seen Harry and Joss kissing on the beach, took off. She’s now jetting around the world, and pissed at her sister. It’s a nice way of making her disappear, but teasing she’s not gone forever, as she’s sending post cards home. It would be nice to have her return next season if things can be worked out between the show and Alyssa.

Joss and Harry still aren’t really together, as she felt they needed time because of all the wreckage they brought to Savi and Scott’s lives. In the meantime she’s made a friend in newcomer Jennifer Esposito, who plays high fashion designer Calista. Calista is trying to nail her husband and his mistress, so she can leave him and not have to pay him alimony. She and Joss became quick friends, though I don’t know how well she’ll fit in with this circle of women who have a history of being mistresses themselves. That is the one thing that struck me odd.

April’s now wrapped up in taking care of her husband’s other child, as she took a job on a cruise ship and left him in the care of her incompetent brother. He’s a grown man-child that April is also now looking after.

Finally Karen doesn’t have HIV, cancer and isn’t pregnant. She does however have a rare blood type and a doctor needs it to save his dying wife. Karen and the wife hit it off, a little too well. I could see immediately where this was going, and the “This season” previews at the end confirmed it . . . Karen’s gunna be having another affair! Only this time it’s with a woman?

All in all, a great start to the season!

Devious Maids: Katie’s Father?

Devious Maids: Katie’s Father?

Posted by Dustin on 06.16.2015 at 12:06 pm

So “Devious Maids” has been rocking this season so far. Nathan Owens, who played Lexie’s half-brother on “Days,” made his debut this week as a male maid. Marisol is suspicious of him, but he claims he’s a war vet that only wants a job where he can work and not think about the fallen friends he left behind. I would like to think he wouldn’t lie about that, but he strikes me as someone who is up to something. It looks like he may be Marisa’s new love interest for the season.

Cristián de la Fuente has also arrived as Rosie’s not-so-dead ex-husband Ernesto. It seems he really was a cop and he really was held by the Mexican drug cartel. I don’t know, I still think he may have been crooked. Right now Spence is in the dog house for keeping Erensto from Rosie for all of 2 whole seconds. He wanted to break it to her when she was healthy enough, though you could see he was afraid to tell her the truth. However Ernesto wasn’t having that and surprised Rosie at Zoila and Javier’s wedding.

Zoila’s wedding crashed when she told Javier the truth about Pablo’s baby, and he walked out. No! I really am thinking they contaminated the DNA test and in the end the baby will be Javier’s. Zoila needs some happiness.

Carmen is now the Powell’s maid and Adrienne is loving how mean she is to him. Oh brother! Meanwhile Blanca found a bunch of Katie’s drawings of her killing a man, who she claims is her father. Are these what she’s planning for Michael, or did she kill her biological father? I still think Michael might be her bio-father and that is the big secret about her.
