Revenge: What’s Tyler After?

Revenge: What’s Tyler After?

Posted by Dustin on 10.31.2011 at 4:34 pm

I’ve finally gotten caught up with “Revenge.” As usual I end up with lot more questions than answers.

It was the big “Fourth of July” party in the Hamptons, and the Graysons were going all out. While Declan was getting closer to the Grayson’s daughter, Jack finally made a move on Emily. Emily pretended like she wasn’t interested in him, that he had misread signals. Does she really love Danielle, or is it Jack she wants? I can’t tell at this point. I think she may have feelings for both, which probably is not going to make her plan easy. I’m still stunned that Jack hasn’t figured out who she really is.

Emily and Nolan sent the tape of Frank to the Graysons. Conrad paid Frank off to basically leave, and Victoria was unsure she could trust him. He however figured out Nolan set him up and that he maybe working with or for Emily. Frank warned Victoria that he was innocent, and someone seems to be setting them all up. Emily is in big trouble as Frank is now watching her like a hawk. She’s gunna have to get him out of the picture soon, if even possible.

Emily became more suspicious of Tyler, who he really is and what he’s really after. During a double date she kept catching him in lies, telling stories to act like his important . . . but is he? Some of you commented earlier that you think he could be one of Conrad’s unknown kids, who is now after his slice of the Grayson enterprises pie. I have also wondered if he’s in love with and really after Daniel? He continues to do everything he can to screw Daniel’s life and relationship with Emily up, but ingratiate himself to the Grayson’s as Daniel’s caretaker. He drugged Daniel and put him to bed at one point in the episode where he was screwing things up for him. At first I didn’t think too much of it, but Daniel pushed him off and said “Get off of me!” in a way that it makes you wonder if this has happened before? What did you think of that scene? Just putting Daniel to bed, or trying to take advantage of him?

Desperate Housewives: We Have A Problem Ladies!

Desperate Housewives: We Have A Problem Ladies!

Posted by Dustin on 10.31.2011 at 12:54 pm

Halloween was the topic of the latest episode of “Housewives.” Poor Lynette competed with Tom’s new girlfriend to make Penny a costume, which turned into a disaster. Lynette actually liked his new girlfriend, which made things even worse for them. Lynette begged her to back off, she’s trying to save her marriage. The girlfriend wondered why, from what she heard all she does is pick fights and make them miserable . . . Wow! This show makes me side with Lynette more and more every episode. Tom is just becoming such a jerk. I think Lynette should let him go at this point, he seems to have wanted out for ages. It didn’t take him long to want to start sleeping around, only this time he was up front about it.

Susan was picked by Andre to be her new assistant at school. She thought it was a great honor. However it seems the reason he picked her is because she’s good with kids, and he wanted someone to baby sit his son on the weekends he had custody so he could go off an paint undisturbed. Susan basically let him have it for being a horrible person. He claimed art was a curse, it takes over your life, you will push away everyone you love for it . . . and one day she’d see that. She swore she wouldn’t.

Ben and Renee grew closer, but her desire to make their evening special landed her in the hospital when she had a bad reaction to some Chinese “lady sex” herbs. This story was really cute and funny, especially when Renee’s face swelled up and she started scaring all the kids away.

Carlos was haunted by Alejandro on Halloween and continued to turn to drinking, which worried Gabby. I’m not liking this one too much. We already have gone through Bree and Andrew alcoholism storylines. Now Carlos?

Finally Bree told Lynette and Gabby about Ben’s plans to build in the woods where they buried Alejandro. Bree tried to find ways to deter Ben, but they all failed. In the end they snuck out on Halloween night to dig the body up . . . only to find someone else had! While they were out there, someone else was chasing them. Who was it? I think it was either Chuck, or Mike. Ben did hire Mike, so he may have done it to protect Susan.

Once Upon A Time: Daddy’s Little Wicked Girl!

Once Upon A Time: Daddy’s Little Wicked Girl!

Posted by Dustin on 10.30.2011 at 8:40 pm

So the second episode of “Once Upon A Time” just aired . . . and I loved it more than the first! We got some big answers, but a lot more questions of course.

Emma stayed in town, which didn’t sit well with the Mayor. The two ended up in a giant war, each making moves to out do the other. I loved Emma taking a chainsaw to the apple tree. Henry gave Emma some missing pages he tore out of the Fairy Tale book, which the Queen/Mayor now had and was reading (it was Snow White’s to begin with). The missing pages reveal to Emma who she is, and who her parents are, which makes it dangerous if the Queen/Mayor figures that out. Emma also found out that Henry’s teacher? Yeah he thinks she’s Snow White! Emma thought it was all crazy, but by the end of the episode . . . it seemed she was becoming a believer . . . if only try and help Henry. But there were some “connecting moments” between Snow/Mary and Emma. Henry told Emma that nobody here knew their past, question them and she’d see. I don’t know why she just didn’t do so? She would have seen Henry wasn’t nuts.

In the Fairy Tale world we learned that Rumplestilktskin (Mr. Gold) gave the queen “the dark curse” which she traded to Maleficent for her sleeping curse . . . which failed to work on Snow White. I loved the scenes with Kristin Bauer as Maleficent! She was great! She has to come back . . . where in town is she? She has to be there somewhere. Maybe she runs the mattress store? Sleep Number! To enact the curse, the queen had to sacrifice the heart of the thing she loved most . . . which turned out to be her father. What was his name? HENRY! We learned this at the very very end. What a beyotch she was cutting daddy’s heart out. Damn, she’s an evil woman!

In the last few moments . . . this is where more answers and questions came from. Emma destroyed the pages she got from Henry, to try and keep the queen from knowing who she was. Meanwhile Mr. Gold paid the Mayor a visit to let her know that Emma was still in town and with Henry . . . did she need his help getting rid of her? She said she wasn’t making deals with him any more . . . NO not that deal! We learned he brought her Henry (which he asked how she picked such a lovely name?). She wondered how he got Henry, did he do it to bring that Emma woman here on purpose? Who was Emma? Mr. Gold said “I think you know exactly who she is!”

So from these final moments, it would seem both the Mayor/Queen and Rumple/Mr. Gold both have the memories? I’m confused! I’m for sure positive Gold has his . . . it’s his curse after all. I’m not 100 % sure on the Mayor/Queen though. The only deal she seemed to think she ever made with him was for Henry. Has she forgotten? Is he trying to make her remember? I’m leaning towards that.

What did you all think? Next week’s episode looks amazing! I’m dying to know what Snow stole from the Queen. One would think it’s Prince Charming, but it seems whatever Snow White did . . . it killed the person the Queen love. Is that symbolic speek or real talk? Is Snow White not the innocent we think she might be?

So I finally watched “Grimm” uninterrupted, and I have to say I really enjoyed it. If you didn’t see it, the show is about a Portland detective named Nick, whose parents died when he was 12 (he believes in a car crash) and he was raised since then by his Aunt Marie. Nick works with his partner Hank, and is about to propose to his live in girlfriend Juliette. However he begins seeing people morph into monsters around him, and then Aunt Marie comes to town. We learn she has cancer and doesn’t have much time left. She is about to tell him the truth about him and what they can do, when a strange monster attacks them both . . . and she goes bad ass on him. Aunt Marie ends in the hospital and eventually tells Nick that they are Grimms, and her power is passing to him now. She also tells him that his parents were murdered, and all the answers are in this giant trailer she brought with her and conveniently parked in his driveway.

What I liked is that the monsters aren’t literally out of the fairy tales. They are humans on the outside, but when they lose control that’s when they transform, and only Grimms can see this. In this episode Nick and Hank are working on someone who seems to go after woman wearing red, but in this case it was red hoodies. Yup, the Big Bad Wolf. Nick also meets another wolf, Monroe, who is reformed. He befriends and even helps Nick, it seems becoming his secret second partner in the show. Monroe explains that the Grimms have been profiling their kind for 200+ years, and the books in the family line contain the profiles. Nick found it earlier in his Aunt’s trailer. The fairytales they wrote are in part based on entire races of creatures it would seem. In this episode it was a race Monroe referred to as Blutbads.

At the end of the episode more badies attempted to silence Aunt Marie in the hospital, but Nick saved her. They seemed to want her out of the way before she can tell Nick something. I like the mystery and intrigue, that there are clearly many puzzles to solve about his past, and eventually he’ll have to deal with telling his girlfriend and partner who and what he really is. Also aside from the fairy tale aspect, this and “Once Upon A Time” are worlds apart, another plus! I enjoy both shows, and both are unique and different.

Play Ball! Play Nice! Grey’s Anatomy

Play Ball! Play Nice! Grey’s Anatomy

Posted by Dustin on 10.28.2011 at 12:33 pm

Last night’s “Grey’s Anatomy” had Owen signing the gang up for a softball team. He hoped it would teach them team work. I actually really enjoyed the episode, especially drunk Christina and Meredith at the game. Yang makes the best drunk ever actually. She’s always great when she’s drunk on this show.

Meredith continued to solve Bailey’s trial problem, which really irked her. A big whoops came when they had already started trial implants of a diabetes device, which is now fault, one of which went into Teddy’s husband Henry. Yeah you can guess even though Bailey swore it would not be life threatening, bad things will come of this. In the end The Chief made Bailey and Meredith work together. Yay! I want them to be friends again.

Alex continued to show he had a heart, breaking rules to find the judge and social workers on Zola’s case and get Derek and Meredith a hearing date to try and get Zola back as soon as possible.

Lexie learned Mark was dating an obstetrician from a competing hospital, the one they were up against in their game. Her rage and jealousy got the best of her, and when she was pitching, she beamed her in the boob! The boob! Alex began to realize that Lexie still has unresolved Mark issues. We knew this was coming.

Christina FINALLY pleased Teddy. Teddy continued to give her tests to see if she would pass. Eventually she did, when she let April take the lead in a heart surgery instead of rushing in to do it herself. Teddy said she would have done that when they first met, today she played on a team, and that is what she’s been waiting to see. So she told Christina no more tests, make a list of dream surgeries and she’d see what she could to get her some of them. I’m glad this feud is over, and I’m glad we actually learned that Teddy was trying to teach her something. I suspected she was all along, but for a bit I thought maybe she was just being vengeful over Owen.

American Horror Story Does Halloween!

American Horror Story Does Halloween!

Posted by Dustin on 10.27.2011 at 12:20 am

First up, “American Horror” story is FX’s highest rated series! Yay! This really, along with “Once Upon A Time” are my two favorite shows right now. I’m hoping NBC’s “Grimm” will join them this Friday!

So this episode served up part 1 of the Halloween show. Part 2 airs next week sillies. But we got more back stories, more clarification of who is and isn’t dead, and apparently a death that may not result in a ghost? Next week’s show description makes you say Hmmmmmmm!

The show opened with the back story of “the gays” who owned and renovated the house before the current family bought it. Zachary Quinto (Sylar of “Heroes,” Spock in “Star Trek”) played one half of the couple Chad, his cheating boyfriend was Patrick (not sure of the actor, someone who looked a lot like Alexander Skarsgard though!) They bought the house with big dreams to have the perfect family and even a child, but it seemed the house turned them into “Bitter Hallow Queens” as Patrick put it . . . a pun being the flashback and their deaths came on Halloween! It appears someone in the latex sex suit killed them both . . . we don’t know who that was. Was it Tate? That was “hinted at” later on. It was not, however, some mutual lovers quarrel murder/suicide as the relator thought it was!

Ben met with Tate, who didn’t seem to be following up with another shrink Ben asked him to see. Maybe because he can’t leave the house? Ben agreed to continue seeing Tate, but not in the house . . .that was too close to home. At a coffee shop, anywhere else. Tate agreed . . . .

The relator suggested to Vivian and Ben they hire a fluffer to make the house warm and inviting. This would spread word of mouth, especially with Halloween coming up, and make selling it easier. She had two fluffers she worked with previously, Ben and Vivian opted for the “cheaper gay guy.” Of course this was an invitation for the gay ghost couple to arrive, and not be suspected by Ben and Violet.

Over at the neighbors . . . Constance caught Addie flirting with her current Boy Toy. The Boy Toy was reading a story about the origins of Halloween to Addie, that it was a Celtic holiday during which they believed on one day veil between the living and the dead was lifted, and the dead could roam the earth . . . thus we dress up to scare the ghosts away. (The Anthropologist in me wants to let you know while true, this description was very abbreviated! Halloween is an amalgamation of many pagan harvest holiday traditions, not just European in origin). Constance of course told Addie, who had decided she wanted to be a “pretty girl” this year, that she should stop flirting with her Boy Toys (which had happened before) . . . she didn’t need to be read a Halloween story to . . . let alone one they knew all about. That gave us the clue both were alive, but very well aware of the ghost next-door. Addie mentioned how she’d never want to be a ghost, it would be too depressing . . . .

Addie later went over (I.E. broke into the house again) to see Violet and ask her for help being a pretty girl for Halloween. She grilled her about Tate, was he her boyfriend? We also learned that she liked it in this house, “all her friends were here.” Hmmmm, clearly as Constance hinted too, they were both alive, but knew all about ghosts.

Tate clued us (and Violet) in on more of the houses past. She asked what the truth about the house was, he wanted to have a OuiJa board session with the original owner Dr. Charles to give her the answers. We got a bit of last week’s story in recap, Dr. Charles was a doctor the the stars, had a drug problem, fell into debt, and his wife set him up as an abortion doctor. All went well until one woman talked to her boyfriend, who kidnapped and killed their child. Dr. Charles went nuts and became fixated on “preserving life after death.” It seems the kidnapper chopped the kid into pieces, and Charles tried to sew it back together. Eww! We saw the wife catching him do this. Tate told Violet that “it still lived here.” She thought he was sh*ting her, and said she didn’t believe it.

Oh . . . I’m forgetting, initially Tate “scared” Violet dressed in the latex sex suit . . .was he a ghost who killed “the gays?” Not sure! But Violet said she was tired of him breaking in to see her, they needed a real date. Tate of course said okay . . . . tomorrow . . . Halloween! When the dead can roam free . . .

Another dead who wanted Halloween off was the maid Moira. She asked Vivian if she could had the day off to spend with her mother. We learned her mother was not only in a nursing home, but on life support. Moira, on Halloween, the day the dead could freely interact with the living, visited and then took her mom of life support. Her mother’s spirit begged her to come with her, but Moira cried “she couldn’t.”

Back to the house, Ben and Vivian were preparing for Halloween with Chad and Patrick. While Patrick made a pass on Ben in private, Chad put an idea in Vivian’s head about cheating spouses. They talked about cheating spouses and he said that he was a snoop and that “you can delete a text message, but not the record on the bill!”

From this clue, Vivian learned Ben had been in recent text contact with Hayden. She confronted him about this, he swore Hayden was over . . . she had tried to contact him over and over but he cut it off . . . oops it’s Halloween! Hayden called Ben’s phone, which sent Vivian into odd convulsions . . . her baby was kicking? At 8 weeks?

Ben rushed Vivian to the hospital, telling Violet not to answer the door tonight, period. This was after they threw out “the gay fluffers,” who went postal on them. Vivian told them to just leave. They said this wasn’t their house, they knew that by now, they weren’t going to leave! This is when Vivian had the odd pains. Clue number one their house is haunted! It seems clue number two will come next week . . .

Upon arriving at the hospital, the woman doing an ultra sound on Vivian fainted after heading her baby was only supposed to be 8 weeks old! Uh Oh! What did she see? A little demon? Or is the kid older? Has Vivian not been the good girl we think she has been? Or has the house done something to the baby?

While Ben and Vivian were at the hospital, the house got two very important trick-or-treaters. Only the later did Violet seem to realize was there. This was crazy burnt up Larry, who seemed determined Ben pay him that thousand dollars for ridding him of Hayden (who also turned up at one point on Halloween night as a ghost, and it seems will be back next week). So maybe crazy burned guy isn’t dead? Which of course means his family is . . . and who we haven’t yet met!

Oh speaking of ghosts we already met! Apparently (via a flashback) Ben met the two twin ghosts from the pilot. They showed up one night to egg the house and him.

The second trick-or-treater was Addie. She wanted to show Violet her “pretty girl costume.” Violet didn’t answer, and she followed some other “pretty girl” (I.E. cheerleader whores) away from the house wanting to join their group . . . . .

BAM! Addie was mowed down in the street! A hit and run. BAM! We later saw the EMTs working on her. Constance arrived, and said “If you can’t save her, we have to get her to the lawn!” It seemed she knew, if she got her to the house to die, she’d still survive in this world as a ghost.

She dragged Addie to the lawn . . . of the “Murder Tour House” . . . but was it in time? It seemed like Addie died before then. She did say she never wanted to be a ghost! But the teaser for next week indicates “The family is haunted by the house’s newest ghost.”

Could Addie be who finally convinces the family their house is haunted as hell?

BONUS!

Patrick, in the bathroom, claimed to Ben that he only needed “4 minutes” with him to . . . um . . . orally pleasure him? Where have we heard that time before? Given this is from the master minds of “Glee,” was this time limit really just a coincidence?

Desperate Housewives: Digging Up The Past

Desperate Housewives: Digging Up The Past

Posted by Dustin on 10.25.2011 at 8:19 pm

So the past two weeks of “Housewives” I felt were just so-so. This week I enjoyed much more than last week, which I thought was complete filler. Actually much like last week, the significant progress in stories came in the final moments.

Susan remained at odds with her art teacher, laughing during a nude model he hired for them to sketch, then making a faux pas when she herself showed up for class nude (he claimed next week they all had to paint in the nude, but later through an email which she didn’t get, said not to come to class naked). BAsed on the spoilers I posted today, big shock! Not, I guessed it, we all did . . . Susan will begin basing her art on the murder, and of course said art will be very much liked by her teacher.

Mike continued to have issues with how much Carlos was leaning on Susan for support, and finally told him to get lost basically. He did . . . in a bottle of booze.

Gabby of course found the parents at the PTA not wanting to work with her, seeing her as spoiled. How could she possibly understand any of their problems? Of course when drunk Carlos stumbled in to help set up for some parent teachers night, all the girls realized Gabby didn’t have the dream life they thought she did, and clamored to support her.

Bree’s guilt had caused her to not attend church for several weekends. Shocking! The reverend decided to help her find her faith again and sent her to work in one of Ben’s soup kitchens. This of course led to her turning it into a culinary hit, but the people wanting a good free meal chased the actual homeless out. In the end, she and Ben bonded. Ummmm, wasn’t he just bonding with Renee? I can see a cat fight coming! Ben took her to where he was going to build a low income housing project . . . which of course happened to be the woods the girls buried Gabby’s step father.

Finally Tom and Lynette tried marriage counseling, but it seemed Tom was less about saving a marriage that made them miserable and more about dating (and having sex) to see if someone out there made them happy. Isn’t it funny once Tom has a job that has him on top, his marriage isn’t working for him anymore? Hey when it was Lynette’s career that was impacted by having kid after kid, Tom was always for more of them! Lynette tried to date, and tried to have sex with a guy who seemed amazing, but she couldn’t do it. She still believed she could save her marriage. I think she’s the only one who believes that right now. Tom . . . maybe they should burry him next to Gabby’s step-dad?
