Remember now that Kyle was the one that started the LVP puppet master/Bobby Fischer crap back in s2. I've always felt Kyle was the most manipulative of them all. People just get pissed that Lisa gets away with stuff (with the audience) b/c her accent.
I can see how in an isolated bubble one can see Judi Evans scenes as good and I suppose they were. However the thing is they would have been much more impactful if we havent seen her be such a blithering past for the past couple of weeks, crying and getting overly hysterical in every episode she's in. I would have cared more for her performance and Adrienne now but Im over it before its even started
Hairspray was pretty good. It's always going to be a solid show and Harvey Fierstein at this point can do it in his sleep effortlessly. Jennifer Hudson was very good. The rest of the leads were not as good for the most part although whoever played Traci did a good job. Link, Seaweed and Corny were a little weak. Martin Short is a decent singer.
I wish I could say I'm surprised by the mistrial in the Michael Slager case, but I'm not. Even with a video as chilling as the one in this case some people won't convict. I guess the bright side is that he'll be retried.
