TV Musings

Beware ot Zap2it today. I just went over there to look at there headlines and there was a big honking spoiler for tonight's Alias at the top of their listings. On the brightside, it wasn't so much of a shock to me since it's something I guessed weeks ago. :/


When Clark (Tom Welling) loses his memory due to a mysterious young boy, Chloe (Allison Mack) must teach him about his superpowers while keeping him from accidentally revealing his secret to others. Later, Lex (Michael Rosenbaum) takes advantage of Clark with regard to the hidden stones.

So, would this be the ep all you slashers have been waiting for? ;)



Cameron still appears to be MIA. Which is probably one of the more plausible things the show has done lately. It would make sense that she'd be gone for at least a couple weeks. I hate shows that have characters leave at the end of one ep only to have them reappear at the very start of the next ep.

Sela and Hugh looked good together and I'll enjoy watching how House squirms/deals with his past. One thing threw me though - the voiceover announcing she was joining the cast. HUH? I knew she would be appearing in the last two eps this season with a possibility of her returning next, but I've heard nothing of her becoming a series regular. I'll assume it's just FOX and their screwy promo department distorting things again.



I actually chuckeled at the end of the episode. Not because I found the ending itself humerous at all, but I envisioned the reaction of the majority of my friends list. Really, I've been there, I know your pain, and it's just nice to not be so emotionally invested (for a change) and instead I can spend my morning reading Galactica fic. :)

I did feel bad for Logan though. Poor guy put in all that planning and was so excited for his date to be stood up with no clue as to why. I like Logan and when I considered it he's the only character I really do like. Veronica I like with him, but, left to her own devices, she still kinda annoys me. And the rest of the characters are rather blah to me (accept for Meg(?) - why isn't she a regular?).

As for Logan being responsible for the drugs, from following various LJs I know this comes as a shock to practically no one. A statement Aaron made stuck with me that Logan was a good kid before Lily's murder and her death changed him. Which leads me to think that he either a) initially bought the drugs for his own use or b) did spike Veronica's drink and allowed other drinks to be spiked because he was pissed off at the world and lashing out. If he was in pain, he was going to see to it that others suffered too. However, being 15(?) at the time his intention was probably to have people make asses out of themselves without contemplating the more sever consequences of what he was doing. He perhaps wanted to humiliate Veronica, but I doubt he wanted her to be raped.

I really think my lack of love for Veronica is why I can't get into the show beyond casual viewing. She's just so smirky and pleased with herself. Okay, okay, and she has absolutely terrible hair and I find myself distracted by it everytime she's on screen. I admit it. Shallowness queen here.
Hee. Well, I honestly don't have an issue with her hair, but she does seem way too pleased with herself. For instance, she thought she was so clever, insuring Logan and herself privacy by putting an 'Out of Order' sign on the bathroom door. First off, how the heck could the entire bathroom be out of order? Secondly, how many people actually pay attention to those signs?
And the rest of the characters are rather blah to me (accept for Meg(?) - why isn't she a regular?).

I think you mean Mac - Meg is the dull blonde girlfriend of Duncan, and Mac is the cutie computer genius.

Theoretically, I like both Duncan and Weevil just fine, but their characters are so thinly drawn that I have a hard time really getting a good grasp on them. I'm interested in the part they play in the puzzle, but not interested in them as individuals. They exist to support the plot, rather than the plot existing to support them. So Logan is my favorite character too, just because he seems like he could exist outside of the storyline, if you know what I mean. Like you, I'm frequently annoyed by Veronica herself.
Yes, it iwa Mac I was refering to. Thank you for the clarification.

I do know what you mean and I think that's why I find him above all the others intriguing. The Lily Kane murder was a life altering event that helped form the person he is today, but it's not the center of his unvivers. He also has the relationships with his family, Duncan, and now Veronica that are continuing to shape and change the person he is yet to be. It's interesting to watch his reactions off of his interactions with the others. I also may like him because he's a better actor. ;p

Duncan I haven't seen much of, but Weevil just seems to be the cliche tough on the outside, soft on the inside misunderstood kid who pops up to help Veronica out of a jam or feed her clues. There are no layers there. And V's dad? Sweet, but bor-ing.
We are so bad. I had the exact same thought when I read that Smallville synopsis.

As for House, I heard the same stuff about Sela Ward as you, so it was probably just the FOX promo department working their weird mojo again.

As for the Alias thing, yeah, me too. :)

Our minds seem most at home in the gutter, don't they?

I'd like to say we are incredibly brilliant (well, we are ;), but it just seemed so obvious.
zap2it also ran a big home page headline on the casting of Mia Maestro as Sydney's sister last year, months before Nadia showed up on the show. Bastards.

Could that sentence from the Smallville promo be ANY slashier? No, I don't think it could.

Well, I suppose they could have said that after Lex gets his hands on the stones they both get their rocks off. :p
or perhaps:

"after Lex get a hold of the hidden stones, he discovers Clark's real kryptonite...."

Just a marketing thought.

I'm not watching Alias and when I saw the Zap2it piece even I knew it was a big honking spoiler. Bad Zap2it!

Will,I offend anyone by saying I hate the very fiber of Smalleville? Sorry!Though I think the promo/ep. description is a hoot! It's certainly more entertainig then the show.

Speaking of promo's, all promo departments are evil, bizarre or both. Bizarrely evil I guess. Though if Sela Ward does become a series regular, I think that'd be cool. I like her and without knowing anything but the premise of why she's there, she could be a fiesty counterpart to House. It'd be fun to see anwyay.

After watching the ep, I concur, the show is no longer very entertaining. Tom Welling is certainly pretty, but beyond that I have no incentive to watch. It's a shame the show has gotten so convaluted when it oncce had so much potential.
