  1. This was an underwhelming finale to a dissapointing season. Its still better than 90% of nonsense on TV but the drop in quality is still disheartening. Quick precis: Debbie is a fool - she's watched enough TV to know teen pregnancy is not a happy place lol. Sami is an idiot coming guns blazing in broad daylight. Frank is arrrghhh hate. I liked Bianca - farewell. I don't get the psycho fanclub for Ian and Micky. Sean is right, Fiona needs to grow up. Vee and Kev were lame. Lip is an a'hole and I have no idea why women fall over themselves for him - he doesn't treat them well and he isn't go
  2. I'm all caught up on this season now. This season is off and I can't quite put my finger on the reason why - it's not only the slightly dull storylines - this season feels sparse and a the frenetic energy of earlier seasons is missing. i wouldn't miss Sami if she died, but think of Chucki as an orphan I don't understand why Lip and Amanda broke up except to shoehorn Lip into this lame affair with his Professor. What's the deal with her husband? Is he also into Lip - I mean there are open relationships but his laissez faire attitude with it being flaunted in his face is unreal. Fio
  3. RHOBH: Wow, Brandi came guns blazing to the reunion but still came off as pathetic as the unfairly sleighted victim. I'm glad Lisa V spared no feeling in telling Brandi what is what. I just wish someone told her that in isolation her actions are forgiveable, but the relentless chain of going too far followed by the sorry-not-sorry routine isn't forgiveable. I kind of think Lisa R is shellshocked from the naked bitchiness of Brandi and Kim. Kim is a special kind of nasty though. It's a pity that Kyle's verbal sparring skills are those of a 12 year old girl because she should of take
  4. I won't miss this show, but I'd still watch it if it was renewed. A spinoff show for Doris would be nice - it's telling that she is the character that I warmed up most to given she was never meant to be a focus point of the show.
  5. The last few episodes feel like the same scenes rehashed again and again fo the most part. Lisa R: The whole 180 in attitude and game plan since Kim said let's talk about Harry raises my eyebrow - Kim may know nothing, but there is something Lisa doesn't want broadcast on television about him. Also wierd was Eileen and hers' conversation about Harry going full circle in playing a gay man and the subtext seemed more than just referring to Making Love. Maybe because I don't really watch reality tv, I may be looking for things that only exist in scripted shows lol. Lisa V: She handled Bra
  6. I'm all caught up from the last few episodes now Eileen: She was so calm and clear headed when she confronted these nueortic petty shrews, she pretty much owned them and she made it look effortless and easy. She really is quite amazing. Kim: Not much more to say on this toxic energy vampire that hasn't been mentioned in this thread. She is highly manipulative - she kept a low profile in the last episode deflecting the attention to Brandi. Now she can go get wasted with nobody paying attention to her. It wouldn't surprise me if BTS she planted the seeds of antagonism in Brandi's insecur
  7. I started watching RHOBH for Lips and Eileen this season. I don't really like this show - it's not my cup of tea but I'm quite the Eileen fan so I persist. I find much of this show to be fake, if not at least scripted. I'd never heard of Lisa Vanderpump before this show so I had to do some internet research about her because I really don't understand why all the other housewives are so desperate for her friendship. I still don't really get it to be honest. Lisa dresses impeccably but her house with its themepark architecture and tacky decor betrays her desire to be seen as classy. Her husb
  8. Finally got around to watching it and for broadcast television, it was really good. Viola clearly stole the show but everything kept my interest. The danger of such a show is that it collapses under its heavy mythology into a massive plot hole (there were quite a few minor ones in the pilot, but no deal breakers), but I'm more than happy to go for the ride for now. I'm also not surprised this show got more eyeballs than Shonda's other shows - I gave up on Gray's 65 seasons ago and Scandal seemed too ABC (i.e. the romance couplings swamp out a decent story) for me to check out.
  9. I totally forgot about this show! I enjoyed the first season, but I guess it wasn't very memorable for me lol
  10. So Ian went off the rails because of Mickey? Fair enough but I was hoping for something more, given this is Shameless... Those Lip and Fiona scenes were intense - I don't get how the emmys etc. can continue to ignore the acting performances on this show.
  11. Caught up on last week's episode - I thought it was the best one yet. Also that sex scene between the gigolo and Augustin's boyfriend - wow. Not surprised he dropped the camera
  12. I'm not sure why you feel your latter statement negates the former.
  13. I really love Joan Cusack/Sheila - it doesn't matter how irrelevant the character is to the other characters, the show wouldn't feel the same without her so I'm glad she is still there. The actors playing Fiona and Lip probably gave their best performances yet in this episode. Powerful stuff. Up until now, I always saw Mike as a generic Ken doll type, but hot dang, he was oozing sex in those scenes.
  14. This was the best episode for me thus far even though Richie rubs me the wrong way (he gives off the vibe of "you should feel priveleged that I have chosen to spend some time with you" but I'm probably the only one there...) and I think the actors only had ok chemistry. It was a great episode to get some insight into who Patrick is as a person - it definitely made me more sympathetic to his character. I loved that I could recognise most of the places they went to even though I have only visited SF once.
  15. I need to set aside a day to watch this. There is no way I can watch it other than as a marathon.
