I don't know if anyone's still watching...I'm kinda (hey, I keep keeping the faith that it'll get better, but I totally doubt it, plus its numbers suck, so it's done after this season or before anyway), but...



The fuck? A maybe hunter/killer rises from some pit and they all stand there slack-jawed, staring at it? Even Derek, who has an intimate knowledge of how they destroy things, doesn't run, duck or take cover?

Oy!

Mankind is doomed with these bozos at the helm of our survival.

And apparently, the five people on TWoP, who still post, have all drunk the Kool Aid, cause they all, for some reason, find Sarah empathetic. The Hells? She's the least empathetic person whom ever personed on my teevee.

Oys some more!

Though, at least she was less...weepy-eyed this go-round. Seriously, she and Dean Winchester should get together and produce kids who just...cry all the time. 'evs...

*sigh*

*boo!*



Off to two birthday parties and two basketball games. Good times, good times!

Oh, and YAYS!

Elsewhere, Jonathan Sadowski, Kevin Simpson, Noureen Dewulf, and Ricky Mabe been cast in FOX comedy pilot Two Dollar Beer.

What a slow, draggy episode. I caught last week's ep on Hulu, and so I watched it last night. Error! Derek was barely in it, and that's all I'm watching for now.

Plus -- it can't be said too often -- I hate Sarah!

Though I am beginning to dig Weaver a lot more. I'd love to look like that, all cool icy smooth red hair and tidy little 40s frocks.

Don't we all do that? I know he is MY reason to still watch.

I hate Sarah!
I mean, yes, the show is named after that character, but whenever they show her poorly acted person once again following her dreams/haluzinations/obsession, I just sit there and hope they go back to Derek asap.

I am beginning to dig Weaver a lot more
Me - not so much. I guess that's the only thing were we don't think alike in this all.

Yes, exactly! Even the TWoP TPTB have said as much, though the stupid posters (all five of them) still seem to like fucking Sarah. Whom I fucking hate. Seriously, it can't be stressed enough. She sucks so badly, she blows. Why they haven't capitalized on Derek is just ridiculous. They should just have Sarah die already (title be damned) and move forward with the much more compelling story of Kyle's brother from the future being all bad-assy.

Which, BTW, he was much more bad-assy last week. They really don't know what to do with him. He's like Sarah's lap dog or something, which bugs. To no end.

I'm not a fan of Weaver, either (hee!) and I think Ellison's a moron.

*big sigh for a show that really could be much, much better*

*still thinks that Friedman is the weak link, as the show rocked during the strike, before he came back, you know*

I admit to being mostly bored by the new season, only getting interested with the small Derek highlights we get once in a while.
And these are the ones that have me still watching.
My favorite moments are still the flashbacksforwards and I certainly still wait for the promised revelation about the basement.
Sister Roserose_in_texas on February 21st, 2009 06:35 pm (UTC)
I'm all cynical now, and since TPTB don't actually care about Derek, I doubt we'll ever find out more about the basement.

P.S. Isn't it fun having a conversation on Cianconnell's journal without her here to participate?
cianconnellcianconnell on February 21st, 2009 06:41 pm (UTC)
Hey, hey, I'm here! And I agree that TPTB hate Derek, because it's ridiculous how underused he is, being the most compelling part of the story. Kyle's Brother! Who came back through time! And has seen the future! And lived to tell the tale! Not that anyone knows, cause no one fucking talks to him!!!! Even stupid Sarah's subconsciousness is telling her to talk to him/rely on him and she doesn't fucking listen to herself.

Oy!

The flash-forward(backs) are the best! Because Sarah's fucking dead in them, for one. I'm really, really looking forward to the movie, which will be all flash-forward, you know?

Me too! *cough* What? You knew that already?

Yeah, I'm still not watching. I heard last week was better-ish though? Was it?
cianconnellcianconnell on February 25th, 2009 04:34 pm (UTC)
No shit? Really? Heh.

I heard last week was better-ish though? Was it?

Depends on what you mean by better-ish. I guess, cause Derek was actually in the episode, which certainly isn't always the case. He was a little badassy to John, which I like, but he's still less badassy than I'd like to see...and way too much the voice of reason. It's like TPTB didn't like that he was upstaging Sarah in the crazy and/or badass department, so they toned him down to make her...I dunno...more something (whatever it is, I do not know, since my hatred of this characterization of her is well known).

Ha in that article that you linked that Marcus Worthington, the Aussie tough guy, hired because he wasn't as fey as some of the American *action* stars compared himself to Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, just trying to get home (and hee that T:SCC uses the Wizard of Oz as an underlying theme as well).

I'm glad you're feeling better. I went from a bad head cold straight to a 48-hour stomach virus. T'was a lot of fun.

BAG said we would find out about the basement before the end of this season.


P.S. Isn't it fun having a conversation on Cianconnell's journal without her here to participate?

I'm sure she will jump right into this little chat in a sec.

cianconnell: reeseboyscianconnell on February 21st, 2009 06:46 pm (UTC)
If there is an end to the season. Fox may yank it. The numbers su-uck, and TPTB seem to want nothing to do with jacking up the intrigue, 'splodyness (USE OF DEREK) to right the ship.
Sister Roserose_in_texas on February 21st, 2009 07:10 pm (UTC)
I can't believe it isn't doing better with the Dollhouse lead-in, considering how widely anticipated that was.
Sister Roserose_in_texas on February 21st, 2009 07:15 pm (UTC)
And by "lead-in" I mean "follow."

Argh!
MiniOrrminiglik on February 21st, 2009 09:35 pm (UTC)
Dollhouse ain't doin' so well either.
famous99: derekfamous99 on February 22nd, 2009 11:50 pm (UTC)
I don't bother watching anymore. Not even when I'm insanely bored.
In a way, I hope it ends so we can see BAG in something else... that's you know... good.
cianconnellcianconnell on February 25th, 2009 04:37 pm (UTC)
I wouldn't either, except I also haven't bothered to take it off my DVR and I figure that if I hear buzz about a good episode, I won't have to track it down. I certainly haven't watched every episode or every minute of the ones I semi-tune into. I skip all non-Derek parts at this point, including both episodes in which he was nowhere to be found.

Stupid Sarah with her stupid hair. She just bugs me to no end.
famous99famous99 on February 25th, 2009 10:24 pm (UTC)
That makes sense :)
It's something to watch at least when one is bored.
cianconnellcianconnell on March 1st, 2009 02:23 pm (UTC)
But not last Friday's. Not even for me. No Derek in the opening credits, no watch. Oh, and I ventured over to the TWoP thread and there seems to be much agreement with how incredibly boring and annoying Sarah is and how any episode that centers on her at the expense of the other characters is a waste of an hour.

That's one episode, I'll never catch.

Ugh!
famous99: lethalfamous99 on March 2nd, 2009 02:25 am (UTC)
Well, let's hope that the writers, etc. are reading the boards. If they want a fighting chance, they'll try and turn the show around.
