Newbie (1/14)

  1. Even in the last episode, it felt like they only included her to appease longtime fans of the character, not because she's one of she show's biggest characters. She felt like such a dayplayer/afterthought. I knew Fulton could be "difficult," but she did maintain a consistent presence on the show until Goutman, I just don't think he cared for her/Lisa.
  2. People, it's Dennis RICKMAN, not Watts. You may go back to your regularly scheduled programming now. :-)
  3. I hate her (both actress and character). A lot of my least favorite storylines during periods where I loved the show involved her. While her relationship with Carol is relatively unexplored, I think Sonia was burnt out by the time she left and there's nothing left to explore with her at this point. I guess the upside is that we have someone with the Fowler last name on the show again...
  4. Come on YRBB, her album covers have never been great. But this is probably a marginals step up from the atrocity that was the Born This Way album cover. My fav parody so far is the one where someone superimposed Miley Cyrus on the blue ball, like in her Wrecking Ball video. It was probably done to throw shade at Gaga and her fanatical fanbase - since Miley and Katy Perry have been kicking her ass on the pop charts (both US and worldwide) lately.
  5. David's return is pretty decent so far, he's seemed to fit back in almost seamlessly. I did like that little scene with Sharon and Carol in yesterday's episode, it was the most in-character I've seen Sharon from the stuff I've seen of her return too. I don't know if they're going to attempt David/Carol again. I don't know if I could ever see those two long-term given their history, and they're not really in the Pat/Frank vein.
  6. This could either be a good thing, or it could be another Eddie Royale situation. If this couple has no chemistry with each other, or with the wider community, the whole thing would be a gigantic flop. Other the other hand, if it works, it could be the kick on the arse the show needs. I don't mind Shirley, but she's always squarely a supporting character, I really don't see the point in tying her to the new owners. They seem to be casting loads of family around her, I don't think she works as a front and center type character, but will have to see to judge.
  7. I've not found the show to be amusing in like 15-20 years. It's painful for me to sit through an episode these days. Like, really painful.
  8. Newman's era just seemed deathly boring with a series of really terrible new characters. I don't know what it will be remembered for in the long-run, or if it will be a completely forgotten era of the show. It's a shame she never worked out given her long history with the show. I didn't want her stuff consistently, I think she made an effort, she just didn't know how to properly execute some of her ideas. I did notice that Kat was more like her 2000-2005 self in the episodes I recently watched (and Jessie is back to her 2005 hairdo), and there seemed to be more of an effort made for diversity (even if not well realized).
  9. I think the exit was planned and written before DTC was hired. The fact that the character lasted this long is purely down to Gillian Wright, IMO. Jean was never supposed to be a permanent character, but each regime seemed to take to her (even if they considered writing her out at one point or another).
  10. I was surprised and happy to see they actually bothered to give her a happy exit, complete with a Julia's Theme ending! She was easily one of those supporting characters they could have given a rushed exit too (or not bother to give her one at all), so it's nice they gave the character a fitting exit.
  11. I see very little difference in this than say what Lady Gaga has been passing out for some of her music in the past 5 years. EDM is very popular right now, especially as many of those EDM DJ's are becoming more and more mainstream. This single isn't starting any trend, it's riding the waves of one. Rihanna is not an albums artist, TTT gave her the biggest hit of her career and another single was a top 5 hit. Her career has been inconsistent if anything else, but in less than a decade, she's still managed to equal Madonna for #1 singles, and has already racked up more #1's and top 10 hits than anyone this millennium. She's not comparable to them, but it's fair to say that her career is pretty much passed its peak and people have moved on to a whole new slew of female pop acts, many of whom are making the same type of music that appeals to the same market as Britney's.
  12. I do not understand this, there is nothing innovative about this single and nothing Will.i.am hasn't been dishing out for years, both solo and with BEP. God bless Britney, but she's never been in complete creative control of her career. She only got saddled in with Will.i.am because Scream & Shout became one of her biggest global hits in years (it was the first time she had part of a #1 single in the UK since 2004, for instance, though it wasn't really HER song). As I said, she's an aging pop star at this point in her career (though she's only in her early 30's). She's still young enough to get radio airplay, but her impact culturally is just no longer there, and likely won't have much of a sustainable impact with the rest of the singles off this album. It's kind of an awkward era that most female pop stars go through (see Madonna in the mid 90's before her comeback with Ray of Light, or Janet since her Super Bowl music career ending incident). She's not really a legend yet, but no doubt, her past success was huge and left some sort of impact behind. Rihanna has never been an albums artist, but she can still score #1 hits more than anyone else, only Katy Perry has come close to her singles success in recent years. Yes, she's had some flops, but the only reason she releases albums every year is because no one would be interested in her if she didn't. I do think Lady Gaga's career has been a mess since The Fame Monster though.
  13. Even though he's EP, apparently, this is the only song he has actual producing/writing credit on. I actually appreciate Blackout more as time goes by. It really is the soundtrack to her breakdown - sex crazed, flippant, and unapologetic, yet she's literally a ghost in the machine on it. I felt like the writers and producers on that album were intentionally giving her material that they wouldn't give to her if she was in her right mind. They knew she out of her mind at that point and they didn't have to produce a typical Britney Spears record, and they could get away with it. If her life wasn't in personal turmoil at the point, the public probably would've embraced it much more than they did. Britney has never had a very good album from start to finish, IMO, but I think Blackout probably stands as her most cohesive album in a strange way.
  14. I will never understand how anyone can find Andy Samberg funny or deserving of his own show. Meh!

      He's hilarious and SNL losing him was a big loss

  15. Hold It Against Me sounds like an Ace of Base reject from 1995. At least this one sounds like a reject from 2002.
