The Weekly Summer Round-Up Thoughts!

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!

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

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.
