This is another one I read because of mixed reviews on my GR feed, so I wanted to decide for myself. Unfortunately, I fear I have to go with the less favorable ones.
This book initially caught my eye because I just love twin stories, and was reminded of 90s classics like Stranger With My Face and Twins. In fact, the premise of The Secrets We Keep is very similar to the latter, although I hadn’t read it in years and don’t recall exact details. I do recall it being really dark, at least to my teenage self. Continue reading →
Oh man and here I was thinking I would never recap this show again. But Season 3 is off to a glorious start and I am sucked right back into the rabbit hole. No, really. This episode had a BUNNY! WOOK AT THE BUNNY!
As always, this show is completely ridiculous and lacking in all realism or credibility, but that’s OK, because let’s be honest–we are not here for that. Continue reading →
So, Point Pleasant. Some of you might remember this short-lived series. Its brief run began (and ended) in 2005, although the show looks and feels more like it was filmed in 1997. The premise was based around a mysterious young girl who (literally) washes up on the shore of the titular New Jersey town. She is the daughter of Satan and a mortal woman, in perpetual conflict between her human side and her evil side. PP received attention in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer fandom because it was co-produced by Buffy alum Marti Noxon, but it soon became apparent that PP had more in common with a low-budget version of The OC sprinkled with elements of a Dan Brown novel. And therein lies the awesome. This is crack of the finest quality, guys.
Sorry for the delay, guys. Lots of stuff going on offline in the past week, plus I was distracted by actual Nationals. Woo hoo! OK so anyway, I bring you “All’s Fair in Love, War, and Gymnastics:” A Screencap Recap!
Previously, on Make it or Break It: Sasha kicks Emily out of the gym after her stunt at the Invitational. Fans of good technique and good acting cheer, but sadly, it doesn’t last. Much creepy Daddy issue sexual tension later, Emily’s back on the team. Meanwhile, Lauren ups the creepy quotient in her Carter stalking and I’m starting to wonder which one is more pyscho here. Oh, and we get more Emily/Damon flirting to the extent that even non-shippers wish they’d just shut up and bang already. Maybe Emily will grow some boobs then.
Previously, on Make It Or Break It:Lauren catches her Dad making out with DJ Tanner and flips out. Emily and Pizza Boy banter about her Secret Life (no relation to the show); meanwhile, she and Kaylie’s brother Leo share a moment of hand porn. Do I sense a ~luv~ triangle coming on? Creepy Carter is possessive over Kaylie, who finds it difficult to make time for him with her busy schedule and the whole, you know, no dating thing. The ‘rents worry over the Rock being coachless and Houston wants Payson. Kaylie and Lauren catfight over Creepy Carter.
All right, guys. Let’s call this a compromise. I’m still doing TV, but at least it’s BSC, right? (I’m sorry, but no power in this ‘verse will make me watch an entire episode of that Sweet Valley High TV series. I saw like a 3-minute clip on youtube and it was over for me. Not to mention that every time I see the Daniels twins I think of skanky Eve on Dawson’s Creek).
I recently obtained all of the episodes (at least that I know of) of the 1990 HBO series, which made me ridiculously excited. Yeah, I need to get out more, whatever. I used to watch the shit out of these when I was 12. To this day I still remember the bad acting, 80slicious fashion, and the most glorious theme song since Degrassi Junior High. I couldn’t go without recapping this series. So I figured I’d start from the beginning, with Mary Anne and the Brunettes. This is one of my favorites. It’s got all the classic teen show staples–bitchiness, boyfriend stealing, and parties! Sadly, the BSC party will not involve Jello shots,Suck and Blow, or brawls, but it’s still glorious in its own BSC way. Trust me.
And I’ma cut this, image heavy and all that fun stuff.
