AMC: OMG! I Just Remembered...


Recommended Posts

  • Members

OK, this might seem pretty random, but as soon as I remembered it, I laughed for about 30 minutes straight. Someone mentioned Carmen (Erica’s former cellmate) in one of the daily episode threads (I think) and it got me thinking of Erica in prison about 2 (?) years ago. Remember when there was that ''Free Erica!'' rally/protest made up of her fans and that boyband showed up out of nowhere and sang the song ''Erica Kane''? bwahaha! Then Erica and all the butchy prison gals and guards were dancing to it!

I've never dropped acid before, but I'd like to think that's what a trip would be like. I know that's how I'd like mine to be, anyway.

I think that was maybe the campiest thing AMC has ever done.... besides maybe Erica & the grizzly bear.

Yeah, I remember this, it was heavily promo'd and I don't think I had heard of that boyband before or since that episode. They were like a bootleg O-Town, and that's really saying something. But I guess that makes three songs about Erica Kane.

To spare my retinas, I won't be watching either of those clips. I avoided 2008 AMC like the plague for a reason.

You mean, you weren't there for the gripping, powerful, return-to-form storyline that Annie Sullivan Agnes Nixon allegedly penned for the show?

;-P

:lol: Good old Aggie probably wrote that episode after dropping acid while chained to her desk in the basement at ABC from where she ghostwrites.

In all "seriousness," another board I frequent had a poster who finished watching that travesty, calling the boyband "that bunch of dancing doorknobs." That pretty much summed up the episode for me. Didn't feel I missed a thing.

Good God. Really!? I was busy trying to graduate then, so AMC was at the bottom of my list of priorities, if it was even on the list, so needless to say, that wasn't a date I had circled on calendar. This is exactly why OLTL is the only one that gets musical guests anymore.

OMG, Y’all! I can’t help it. I love it! It’s so bad that it’s good! It’s like the film Mommie Dearest! I can’t look away!

''This is America! Freedom for Erica!''

''5, 6, 7, 8, Open up the prison gate!''

Bwahaha!

I’m surprised some of you had no idea that this happened. ABC advertized it so much! They were even selling ‘Free Erica!” t-shirts on their website.

Oh, and I love that the “protesters” seem to be 20-something women and men! I’m sure Erica Kane is HUGE in that demographic. Well, maybe if all the guys are gay. La Kane must be a big gay icon because she's so fabulous.

Whoa. LOL! This was seriously like the one time I didn't read spoilers or anything. I had NO idea. I would have LOVEd one of those t-shirts. LOL

I'm scared to find out what else I missed during this point.

Hey, I just firgured.... the women at the rally are probably the gay guys' ''fruit flies'' that they dragged along....

''Oooh, gurrrrlll! We gotta go to the “Free Erica Kane!” prison rally! If you come with me, I’ll take you to the mall afterwards and buy you something pretty.''

    • Can't wait!! Seasons 8-10 is very high praise indeed!
    • @CatI feel like Tamra was the missing piece of the puzzle, but this is a good set up for her to return next year. It felt like classic RHOC like seasons 8-10. They gave you everything, but with the elevation that Heather brought when she first joined. Even Emily and Gina felt right. It felt like no time had passed. I didn't miss or even think about Kelly Dodd.
    • Just so, so ridiculous! I've always wondered if Andy is really not into Latinas, especially ones with slight accents like Adriana. Even though all of us watching can perfectly understand Adriana and enjoy her Brazilian telenovela flair. There is no reason Adriana couldn't be a mojito-holder, and Martina Navratilova's wife (I mean, God bless, because Martina is a straight-up ICON), who barely appears in the trailer, couldn't be a FOH. Marysol, too, is like a tentpole figure whose PR business united all the women in the OG RHOMi. ITA that Marysol seems a lot more entertaining than she was on the original series. Back then, Mama Elsa dominated and Marysol seemed a lot shyer, more passive and sensitive. Since her mother's death, I imagine Marysol has had to come to terms with that and come into her own fabulousness. I always found it interesting that Marysol, Alexia and Adriana had an understanding (las cubanas + la brasileira) to the detriment of other friendships.   Thanks for the glowing review! I will catch up on it. Does it feel like familiar OC? I feel like OC lost some of its familiar OC magic in the last few seasons, so I'm excited about Heather returning. Obviously if Tamra popped up, it would be phenomenal! I'm just so glad the toxic, exhausting Kelly Doddlezal is no longer on the show. I can't overstate how much she was ruining the show for me.
    • I also wanted to say that my middle school years were spent in eastern Massachusetts, near Boston, where some of those towns are naturally gothic and a bit witchy (and not just the original Salem lol). I was part of a Catholic family and there were a big Irish Catholic presence where I grew up, but my mom was foreign (French), and so we weren't as closely embraced in that community where people had long generational ties to the area. So I got to observe a lot about how these communities hummed. There were cultures of silence and unspoken little scandals. The Catholic aspect always held an element of karma or superstition! And it was cold and icy winter conditions for about 4-5 months of the year. For these reasons, Days during Reilly's run resonated with me, and I felt like he understood the soul of a place like the one I lived in. His last name certainly made me wonder if he was writing from New England and somewhat immersed in that world.
    • Andy said on his radio show that Adriana is a friend because they didn't want to have too many housewives. That is stupid IMO because 7 would've been fine. He said she's in every episode and will seem full time and from the trailer she's giving more than some of the mojito holders. Just an odd, odd move. I also find all the Marysol to be odd since she's also a friend. Marysol also seems more interesting than she was before.    I was convinced it was going to be terrible based on the lack of promo, but the RHOC premiere was the best opening episode for any of the shows that premiered this year. I feel like most have a big hook to draw you in, but it takes weeks to get there as we saw with RHOBH and RHOSLC. With OC, it kicked off right away. They did everything right. They reintroduced Heather, gave us house porn and a proper update on her family and life. Then they got us all caught up on Emily and Gina and gradually introduced the newbies. This all led to whispers of a secret and they left us with a great cliffhanger! No "wait 10 episodes for the drama to start," they literally just gave it to us. I thought everybody brought it and I think RHOC is going to have a good season.
