|OH please, you think you're the first mobster we've seen??|
It's a week that should have brought me closer to finding out what happened to Peter's body but... alas it just wasn't to be. Nope, not even close. Another downer week so if you feel the need, you can skip this!!
In a summer where I wanted The Jarly Wedding of the Century and Jason and Carly finally finding their way to some hot zex, where I really hoped Nixon Falls would end with "Mike" coming home still without a memory and where I and prayed that Robert had moved a dead Peter I got..
More of this; and a Lenny cancer story ! Maurice gets to emote a death again! Wow!
Jordan and Curtis arguing forever about the divorce and Portia/Curtis arguing about having a relationship !!
Not to mention the entire rewrite of the Hayden shooting. (Which I shall refrain from bitching about this week because I'm sparing you all). Point is, the summer started out so promising. I mean..oooffff. Dialog is still good, actors (for the most part) are engaged...but overall storytelling? C- and that's being nice.
AND NOW I find out there's another new "big" name actor coming along with Cameron Mathison who we STILL haven't seen. What happened to the OTHER big actors that came? Where's Michael E Knight? Kim Delaney? The guy that's on a ton of Hallmark movies? Evaporated. I'm still kinda sad Cyrus is gone. Everyone seems to love this guy. Yes, I remember him from The Nanny. No, I didn't see him on Days. I'm just crabby right now. I feel a dearth of over 50 white guys all over the canvas.
TRUCE OF THE WEEK: Britt decides that it will be ok to share a job with Terry...I'm sure there will be a lot of times she won't "share" but should be fun.
KARMA OF THE WEEK: Not sure if it's karma but I guess Stella spiked her own BP enough to have another stroke. I love Vernee; great actress. I just wish they'd give her more to do than meddle in Curtis' affairs. She's so much better than that.
EWW, GROSS, NO THANK YOU OF THE WEEK: So.. Chase needs to see the "evidence" of Michael and Willow's dilly-dalling himself. Get the forensic black light out!! Hell, Austin even SITS ON THAT!! He also finds a used condom wrapper!! So, anyway, Austin is up to something and basically gets Chase not to tell anyone he can walk and to play with the emotions of the cheaters. While I'm all for Chase being a meanie, the dance of the sugar-plum couple of Mildew is so boring.
SPEECH PATHOLOGY MOMENT OF THE WEEK: Harmony uses a communication board for Ryan. Totally true and used (he could have an eye tracker computer thing but this is old-school). Ryan can write letters! Alexis is intrigued. Not sure where this is going? I mean...Harmony is a health care assistant? Ryan's in Spa Jail? um...okay? Why not Brad? He's in the medical field, could be helping out. I guess we'll find out what Harmony's tie-in is.
FRIENEMIES OF THE WEEK: Yes, Obrect and Anna. Bonding over the heavy-bag and wishing the gym had a smoothie bar.
SCENE OF THE WEEK: If I had to pick one, I'm going with Spencer consoling Trina when she's upset about her mom's past. Showed a different side of him and the whole thing was acted well. Potential is going up.
FACE OF THE WEEK: WELP! Chase had to see Michael and Willow's aftermath with his own eyes. Austin went too! Sat on the bed! Found a condom!! Meanwhile, I was still trying to wake up after the most boring zex scene ever.
PROP OF THE WEEK: The absolutely awful BLT Cameron made for Spencer. It looked limp and nasty. Made me laugh.
DEAR WARDROBE, IT'S SUMMER OF THE WEEK: While I enjoyed Dante and Laura's Lulu talk, her giant deep-winter coat was pissing me off. Kind of like Brook wearing all black with a giant long-sleeved blazer to Wiley's party. Ok, I get it, cover them up. BUT PLEASE AT LEAST GET SOME SUMMER LINEN LOOKS!! Please!! Can't they even show their arms? 3/4 sleeves or something??

That's it!! It's hard being a blogger right now! LOL Usually I'm head cheerleader for the show. I'm just not getting it. I think we've had enough new people on for at least a year. Maybe with the Olympics over it will pick up again. I can't help thinking things were slower due to that. Maybe Mr. Sheffield will the the best character ever and Cam Mathison will shine like a star. I sure hope so. Have a great Sunday.
