TV round-ups  
So Coach is back already. It feels a bit odd. The new Coach was such a one-dimensional villain figure that the whole thing felt very contrived, right down to him threatening revenge. But whatever, he's back. Hopefully that means the show will get back to normal. Oh, right, apart from the fact that Tyra and Landry are going to get busted for murder. *headdesk*

Despite these gripes, I loved the episode. How could I not love Jason and Tim in Mexico? They make my heart bleed. The karaoke scene instantly hit my 'favourite FNL scenes' list. Jason was so vulnerable and heartfelt in his drunken rambling and Tim's face looking on radiated love and fear for his friend. While I do think Tim can be a lousy friend sometimes (and I'd have wanted to kill him after the cop incident), in some ways I think he did the right thing to give Jason his moment of catharsis and then go behind his back to organise (hopefully) an intervention. I don't think Street will listen to reason right now because he needs to believe in the cure SO MUCH. That's what came through in the karaoke and my heart broke when he sang 'Dillon sucks' because that seems really true, and it also seems to be an added layer to his determination that he hasn't fully shared with Riggins. Tim may still be hanging on to the old 'Texas forever' dream but Jason needs a new start somewhere else. It's been the home of heartbreak and frustration for him and so walking isn't even 'just' walking: it symbolises the ability to pick up and leave the past behind. Oh, Jason!

The actor who plays Tim isn't always that great, but in some ways his limited acting style works for Tim's emotionally limited character, and I thought he did very well in these scenes. His appeal to Lyla was heartbreaking. I think he'd do anything for Jason but I'm sure he didn't want to have to turn to Lyla, especially as his most recent faux pas with her is so fresh. He was practically begging on the phone. He's always hated asking for help and admitting he really is alone without a support network. It will be interesting if it's Lyla that bails them out. It used to be Tyra who would come to Tim's rescue and I can imagine her going down there and dragging Jason back. But Lyla? That's going to be messy. Or perhaps she will bring his parents? I do want Lyla to respond: it would be unthinkably callous of her to ignore that appeal when she's so busy good samaritan-ing for someone she doesn't even know.

I was also moved by Julie's plot this week. She's such a typical teenage girl it's actually painful to watch. The driving lesson scenes were so true to life it made me squirm. I can remember bickering constantly with my mother through those. *winces* But wow, I wish I'd had a mum like Tami! The fact that she was able to talk honestly to her daughter about her own past was really admirable, I thought. And I think she's the only person that could ultimately have stopped Julie from pursuing the Swede any further. Friends of the same age would have either been glamoured by him as well or at the very least Julie would have feared looking emotionally weak for not wanting to get her heart broken. The signs of his disinterest in anything serious have been there from the start and Julie may kid herself that she could cope with something casual, but the truth is she was really crushing heavily on him and hasn't learnt to guard her heart. I thought it was interesting that they showed her discomfort with his lifestyle after Tami had shared her story--as if that opened Julie's eyes to see more clearly, which I think is exactly what it did do. She might still be mad at her mother now, but ultimately she'll be thankful she didn't get in too deep. Tami took the plunge and pushed past Julie's discomfort with her mother's disclosure--she risked being hated, which evidently is part of good parenting.

I'm dreading the impending Tyra/Landry fallout, but I want more Jason and Tim and Lyla and Matt and the Taylors, so there's no way I'm tuning out.

I'm really loving this season of Dexter, which surprises me since I thought they'd played their big plot in season one. But Dexter under investigation himself is proving to be very suspenseful television. I'm also hooked in for Deb's plot--she's a sweetheart and I always have my heart in my mouth when I'm watching her as she seems to always be right on the edge of a precipice. Her edginess this season is very well characterised and I'm enjoying seeing her with the older cop father-figure. I always wondered about Deb's relationship with her father: I'd love to know more about that, as it's obvious that he focussed a lot of attention on Dexter and yet she really loved him/didn't resent this?

So far I dislike Lyla but disliking her is proving really enjoyable. It's a completely irrational dislike--I find her showy, self-obsessed, superficial, pretentious, narcissistic and headstrong to the point of recklessness. She seems like such a potentially dangerous figure for Dexter to fall for, and yet she's proving helpful (maybe?) for him in his recovery. It's a strange tension and one I enjoy watching, which is what I mean when I say I'm enjoying disliking her. I keep thinking 'omg, don't say that!' and then watching Dexter respond in a way I don't anticipate. I'm sure this is because Dexter is completely opaque to me, despite the show positioning us in his point of view. Intellectually I can see that the two of them have really connected but I have no emotional bridge to them as characters so I can only watch what I fear will be a trainwreck (but I'm probably wrong) from a distance.

Sigh. I tried. Episode four didn't seem quite so actively painful but it was just boring. And then when I realised the plot of episode five was about anti-depressant techniques that turn people into killing machines, I decided that was as good an excuse as any to break up with the show. I mean, honestly. It's already embarrassingly sexist, and now they contribute to the stigma against mental illness (and the meds/cures associated with it)? Sod off!

Well, I do watch it. It's my silly popcorn show. But I've decided that Betty really really annoys me. She and Henry are outdoing old-school Clana in creating obstacles where there aren't any. So much so that I don't even care that they got together at the end of this ep. Clearly they'll be in agony again next episode anyway. *throws hands up in despair* However, I did totally adore Mark's new bloke. How cute is he?! His speech to Mark about beauty + beauty not being a story was made of win. *draws hearts around them*

But question: since when is Justin not gay? I was waiting for him to sob on his mom's shoulder and reassure her that he'd never date girls again... only he didn't. *confused* Please don't be telling me that the show has caved to some kind of network pressure not to have an underage gay character? :(

Am still thinky re. an all-BSG-fandom ficathon. Follow up to follow when brain kicks in. :p

In personal news I suck. Or rather my vitamin levels still suck despite months of diligent effort. Since I've also failed to lose any weight during this time, I'm officially sulking. So little coffee, so little result?!?! *fake huffs*

Hmm. Pretty much all I can respond to on this post is: Bionic Woman. And I've also given up. It's just...boring. Actually, the only TV I'm finding engaging this season is Smallville and that show that shall not be named. Today I made myself sit through Heroes live, because I was afraid if I'd never get around to watching the tape if I didn't. And I did, technically, watch the whole show, but...well, I won't spoil you. I'm not actually sure my response is a comment on the show or on the state of me, really. But Thursday night TV seems to be the only TV I'm into.

Oh, I take that back, I still love my cheesy vampire show. And I'll probably continue watching Pushing Daisies for a while, if only to better understand your squee.

Sorry to hear about your vitamin woes!
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Pushing daisies make it betterbop_radar on October 30th, 2007 05:22 am (UTC)
BW = boring. Yes.

And heee, Heroes I haven't even got round to watching last week's eppy... oops! *yawns* Although bradcpu just made the most mesmerising meta-y Heroes vid that has me actually thinking of posting Heroes meta again!

The show that shall not be named? *coughs* Tsk tsk! I'm glad you have your cheesy vampire show though. :)

Perhaps I could just articulate my Pushing Daisies squee better and then you could dispense with it too? ;) I'm not sure I can except that the show resonates with me in some strange subliminal way.
Nora Norwich: Kara seriousnorwich36 on October 30th, 2007 05:34 am (UTC)
Re: Pushing Daisies: Oh, I totally get how some shows just can ping for you in certain ways. And I could love that show, I think, if they just pulled back from the overuse of narration. I think.

Re: the show that will not be named: Umm. Haven't been talking about it much because I have no time, but...I have SO totally gone over to the dark side, there. Apparently cute guys who have sold their souls to save someone they love=my bulletproof kink. But I will spare you my crazy SPN love.

Is it safe for me to read your recent BSG post, btw? Is it spoilery for some extra feature-type thing that has been recently released? (I have only vaguely been keeping track of BSG since in my head it is on hiatus until April, but weren't there some extra-type things released, or was I imagining that?)
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Kittenbop_radar on October 30th, 2007 05:54 am (UTC)
I will cross fingers for less narration for you. ;) (Personally I can take it or leave it.)

*lol* about SPN. You see when you sum it up like that: "cute guys who have sold their souls to save someone they love" it sounds SO my cup of tea. And yet no. But good for you in finding a new squee-thing.

My BSG post is only very mildly spoilery for the webisodes, it's only really a reaction spoiler. They're flashback webisodes--set in the first Cylon war with a young Bill Adama. They're still coming out weekly--I think there's three or four more,.
Nora Norwich: Kara Roslin laughingnorwich36 on October 30th, 2007 06:02 am (UTC)
So are the webisodes on the SciFi website, oh my guru in things BSG? I might actually have time to download them his weekend. And young Bill Adama! W00t! That sounds like a lot of fun!
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Roslin Kara yaybop_radar on October 30th, 2007 06:04 am (UTC)
Yup, they are. Or they are on YouTube by now too, for those of us not in the US. ;)

And yeah, I like them better than the Occupation ones, I think. The actor they got to play Bill is really an uncannily good mimic of both Adamas.
darenothopedarenothope on October 30th, 2007 05:33 am (UTC)
I didn't know you watched Ugly Betty either. I don't really watch it for Betty, because, yes she is annoying at times. But it's just a whole bunch of fun and it's colourful and I love Mark and Amanda and Justin and Hilda. And I loved Mark's new guy (who kind of reminds me one of the guys out of Superbad).

And about Justin ... he's just really into things that are stereotypically considered gay but not into guys yet??

K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: DW Martha Jonesbop_radar on October 30th, 2007 06:00 am (UTC)
Yeah I started watching it on TV here on Sunday nights and it sort of stuck. ;) I agree that the ensemble cast is very entertaining. I love Justin and Mark and Amanda are very funny. I also like the crazy melodrama of Daniel's family.

But yeah, I didn't mean to stereotype Justin. He could possibly be straight, but I had thought the show was going towards gay mainly because the way they paralleled him and Mark. It seems surprising given that he's so confident in the rest of his tastes (show tunes, fashion, etc) that he wouldn't have confronted the sexual orientation issue, if only because kids at school would have teased him.
darenothope: [smallville]Kara - Clark and Kara.darenothope on October 30th, 2007 09:28 am (UTC)
I meant that I do think Justin is gay (or is getting there) but hasn't been attracted to guys yet. If that's possible. Although, I do think that they're not going to introduce a male love interest for Justin any time soon at least not until he's of age.
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Flowersbop_radar on October 30th, 2007 09:36 am (UTC)
Oh, sure. Yup, I guess I'm just bewildered because I have male friends who definitely knew they were gay by that age. I guess I assumed that in this day and age and with a supportive family (which he seems to have) there wouldn't be any need for him to feel forced to conform or 'assume' he was straight. Perhaps I'm being too naive! And no, no I certainly didn't think they'd have a love interest for him. I was just surprised by the girl-pashing. ;)
Fleegull: Joaniefleegull on October 30th, 2007 05:44 am (UTC)
I love Deb so much that I have forbidden myself from ever posting about her. If I started, would never stop. She is so earnest and that's a trait that is rarely done in a believable way on tv (see Betty on Ugly Betty).

K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Yay!bop_radar on October 30th, 2007 05:56 am (UTC)
I LOVE DEB TOO. I love her in a way that I can't really put into words--it's pure emotion and I've never really talked about it. You're right that she's earnest in a way that tv rarely gets right. She's also an unusual female character in terms of the way she's boyish but vulnerable. I pretty much watch Dexter only for Deb. Dexter himself baffles me and the other characters are 'meh', but Deb is one of those tv characters who I instantly pinged with.
smact46smact46 on October 30th, 2007 07:23 am (UTC)
I kind of like the show ugly Betty - its kind of simple and cheerful, a good sunday night tv dinner option - but I actually don't like it for Betty herelf so much*hangs head* I actually kind of find Daniel much more interesting inspite of his manwhore ways. I also really like Mark and Amanda (that girl can snark like nobody else I have seen!).

Yay to an all BSG fandom ficathon!!
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Aishwarya Raibop_radar on October 30th, 2007 09:34 am (UTC)
Yeah, I like Daniel better too. ;) I pretty much only like Betty in relation to Daniel--I find their friendship really sweet. But other than that she's annoying.

Yeah it left a bad taste in my mouth. Which I think is sort of the point of the plot--it's soured things for the Taylors. But then it just sort of feels like the writers wrote in angst for no reason.

I guess it's a case of so much for hopes that DE would be able to revive another old franchise and turn it into something with the same sort of cutting edge and quality that BSG had. I'm still glad I'm not watching this - I know I watch hardly any tv as it is, but just what I've hard about BW and the responses I've seen from people on my f-list who watch it have been giving me all sorts of misgivings across a whole range of issues. It does sound as if Katee will come out of it looking pretty good - perhaps she'll be the one actor from BSG who visibly goes on to bigger and better things post BSG? EJO and MM are already pretty much guaranteed as much work as they want when they want it, but nobody else from the cast has really had a sniff of anything by way of major new work/performances/roles post BSG.

In personal news I suck. Or rather my vitamin levels still suck despite months of diligent effort. Since I've also failed to lose any weight during this time, I'm officially sulking. So little coffee, so little result?!?! *fake huffs*
Hmm. That is a little odd - is your doc doing any tests to see if there's perhaps some metabolic problem resulting in you not actually absorbing or producing vitamins in the right quantity?

I wouldn't worry about the weight thing - I think it's most likely that with all the effort you've been putting in, you've been burning fat and adding muscle. If you wanted to be really, really sure, you could start getting your BMI breakdown measured (that'll tell you your makeup in percentages for water, fat and muscle/bone) but that can be kind of depressing at times. However, if you keep saying you suck, I will officially set ranty Lee on you. Nobody who sends me Tim Tams is allowed to suck. It's a rule.
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Karabop_radar on October 30th, 2007 10:41 am (UTC)
I think Katee will come out of it looking great, and I think it's early days still for the others.

Re. medical tests, the answer's no not yet. He started muttering about iron injections and I ran away. ;) He says to give it until February on my new extra-big dose of vitamins and eating plan and then if still not improving have tests.

Weight is very very odd. I'm not too worried about it as I think I'm reasonably fit and have improved muscle tone in my arms and legs, but I'm more just frustrated that despite my efforts I still don't fit in the healthy weight range for my height. And while I'm griping, it's very annoying that you can't choose where you lose weight from, dammit! I seem to keep losing it from my legs and they are skinny already, yo! While my poor tummy never gets any smaller and my breasts keep getting bigger. (DON'T LAUGH! It's really annoying as it makes yoga hard and I keep needing to buy new underwear.) Although my waist-hip ratio has improved without actually losing kilograms, since I've lost centimetres from my waist but nowhere else. I have no clue why my body's decided to redistribute my weight in this way but I just wish I had more say over it. **control freak**

if you keep saying you suck, I will officially set ranty Lee on you
Seee... not that much of a threat. If you set Kara Thrace in a foul mood on me I'd be much more scared. ;)

Nobody who sends me Tim Tams is allowed to suck. It's a rule.
Aww. Ok, I'll try not to. :p
Kate: FNL Timmskatej on October 30th, 2007 10:26 am (UTC)
I absolutely *loved* FNL. I'm even enjoying the way they're handling the murder plot so far: it feels realistic rather than cliched, thankfully.

Tim blew me away. He looked very beautiful in this episode and his love and concern for Jason is just so moving.

I stopped watching Dexter. I gave it two episodes and realised that I couldn't really be bothered with it anymore and that the *thought* of it made me feel somewhat queasy (I don't handle gruesome well). But I did end up really liking last season. Should I catch up?

I know! *heart thumps* So beautiful--their friendship is gorgeous. I want them to be friends forever!

Dexter's always made me queasy but I pushed through first season ok. This season I'm actually enjoying it more--it's less gruesome and the characters I like (Deb and Doakes) are getting more screentime. Also, there's an interesting new character that bonds with Dexter--I'm kind of love-hate about her at the moment but it's very suspenseful. Plus this episode was all about superheroes and comics. :D So maybe?
Alexandra Leaving: Dexter - Dexter and Doakes - love/hatealexandral on October 30th, 2007 01:02 pm (UTC)
Like you, I was pretty apprehensive about the season 2 of "Dexter" but I am glad it turned out so well, they seem to have found such an interesting arch to keep me all on the edges of my seat.

I like Lyla as I really liked this actress from "Hustle" days and I often get drawn to this type of people. I think her and Dexter's relationship is going to be a jungle fire but at the same time this fire will leave "the land" clean.. He really needs someone now that he is realizing what a number Harry did on him.

I also like agent Lundy and Deborah. And Maria and Doakes..
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Dexterbop_radar on October 31st, 2007 01:06 am (UTC)
Yes, it's looking good for this season! The actress who plays Lyla seems very good, I agree. And I can't turn away--they make a riveting pair even if she scares me. ;)

Agent Lundy is proving good value. And I've always been fond of Doakes--his vigilante watch on Dexter was priceless.
brandil on October 30th, 2007 01:08 pm (UTC)
I think Julie's scene at the Swede's can be read two ways, the way you described it and even *more* heartbreaking as an *exact* repeat of what happened to Tami. Julie shows up looking hotter than hot in something she shouldn't be wearing and the Swede's all, oh? did we have plans? And that's when she starts to crumble. She looks around and sees all the empty beers the bong and this guy totally forgot he was supposed to hang with her and she realizes, holy shit, I really am living my mom's life.

Now, I don't like to think that Julie gave her virginity to the Swede but I think it's a plausible interpretation of what we saw. I keep trying to scrub it out of my brain but I can't quite manage it.

I'm really surprised by Dexter too, I didn't anticipate the follow up season to be so strong. I love these flashes of memory Dexter's getting and I'm curious what exactly it means that in his memories his brother isn't there.

Ohhh, I hadn't thought of that reading. Though you're right that there's a tragic spin on it that Julie was trying to escape becoming her mother when she broke up with Matt and she's ended up following in her footsteps. I think it's a really interesting plot to explore because I do think a lot of girls go through these issues--I know I did. We know Julie thinks she's ready for a sexual relationship but she's very young emotionally still.

I love these flashes of memory Dexter's getting and I'm curious what exactly it means that in his memories his brother isn't there.
Yes, that's fascinating. I think they work well in that now that Dexter is more conscious of his origins, he's starting to question the way Harry brought him up. But does the absence of his brother maybe mean he's tried to bury that memory? There was that scene where he tried to (literally) drown him and his brother reached back up to grab him again. *shudders*
brandil on October 31st, 2007 12:38 pm (UTC)
The affair with Harry and his Mother made me wonder yesterday if perhaps Brian was Dexter's half-brother (Harry was his bio-dad which would make Deborah his half-sister) and if that's part of where they're going with young Brian's absence.

I love when TV can make me think about it and wonder where it's going days after I've watched it.

Heh, if I'm not mistaken, Ugly Betty is the American version of This German TV Novella called Verliebt in Berlin that played here about two years ago. I wanted to punch Lisa's face after a while. Hope it goes better in the American version :-)
Fleegull: City Girlfleegull on October 30th, 2007 11:15 pm (UTC)
Actually all of these shows are versions of a Colombian telenovela from 1999 called Yo Soy Betty La Fea which has been replicated all over the world with much success.

I'm new this season to Friday Night Lights and even I was heartbroken by the Tim and Jason moment with the Karaoke. Urgh. So much pain on both their parts. Also, I had to actively find something else to do during the teaching Julie to drive scenes. Apparently, even 16+ years later my memories of learning to drive are still too painful. Hee.

I am amazed you made it this long with Bionic Woman - I gave up with it after episode two.

As for Ugly Betty - I got the sense that Justin's moment with Hilda is the first step in bringing him back to his old self. I sensed that it will take a bit more healing. However, I don't think the network has been pressuring them to change him at all.

Right! Very scarring. ;) I'm glad I wasn't alone in my wincing.

It's great to hear that you've found the Tim and Jason scene so strong despite being new to the show. I think that's a great credit to the performances. This show excels and those raw emotional moments when the characters expose themselves emotionally in the way Jason did.

Justin's moment with Hilda is the first step in bringing him back to his old self. I sensed that it will take a bit more healing.
That's what I hope. You're probably right.
Allisonfrolicndetour on October 30th, 2007 05:42 pm (UTC)
BW - Ooops, I think episode five was the one I told you was better. (The one with no Katee and where Jaime had to pose as a British exchange student?) Not that you should watch it, I just don't want you to think I have bad taste. *g* I'm trying to remember what I thought of the fourth one and I can't, so yeah. Though, fwiw someone must have tipped them off about the offensiveness of the anti-depressant plot, because the people who got turned into killing machines were just ordinary people prior to the Evil Conspiracy implanting mind-control chips in their heads, I believe.

Yaay Coach! And I'm hoping against hope that Tyra and Landry aren't going to get caught, because it seems like it's all movie of the week from there on out if they do, and it might be more interesting and realistic if they just have to live with it. I'm not holding out much hope, though.

The actor who plays Tim isn't always that great, but in some ways his limited acting style works for Tim's emotionally limited character,

Oh, I think that's spot on. When I first started watching I went on TWoP and read all these raves about his acting and I kept thinking No... but yes. heh.

I agree that there's a dangerous movie-of-the-week possibility with the Tyra and Landry plot but for the most part I trust this show. Season one was unbelievably good. So I still hold out hope they'll make it work.
The First Evil: PD - Field - dancingheartsasta77 on October 31st, 2007 03:09 am (UTC)
I think a turning point for Jason last season was when he was given the job with the panthers. It allowed him, once again, to be part of the team he loved, he was contributing to their success, and it gave him a sense of self worth. The next major turning point in his life was when the new coach called him the team mascot and he was forced to quit the team. Even in the wheelchair, he had a semblance of a normal life and that was suddenly gone. Now he's back to where he was after the accident, grasping at anything to get the life he knew back.

Re: Ugly Betty - Betty annoyed the hell out of me last week. I use to think she and Henry were cute together, but now they are either acting like twelve year olds or selfish adults choosing to ignore that Henry has a baby on the way. And while I can buy Justin's rebelling (cutting class, stealing a car, lying, mouthing off), the playing at heterosexual was something I found hard to believe. I've actually found the renewed friendship between Daniel and Alexis and Amanda's search for her father (with Halston's help ;) the most interesting stories.
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Retro girlbop_radar on October 31st, 2007 03:13 am (UTC)
Yeah, I'd agree with all of that. The friendship between Daniel and Alexis HAS been interesting to watch and I hope they can get past the recent fallout. I've never been a big Amanda fan (I went to school with too many girls like her to find her that funny) but her search for her father has made her a more human figure.

Huh?? *scratches head and frowns*. Err not really sure about that one. Been a black coffee drinker, no sugar girl for many years and I sure haven't wasted away.
