Ghost Whisperer

Remember the moment I talked about Ghost Whisperer in my LJ because it's the first and last time.



OK, the good...

Jamie makes a hot corpse. Um, he got hit by a truck shouldn't he have, ya know, had his face messed up instead of looking so darn pretty.

Jamie got to be funny. Well, as funny as the writers of this show could muster. His comment about the makeup feeling heavy cracked me up.

The bad...

Everything else. How, HOW?!, is this show a success? It's BAD. Like Phantom Menace bad. Is it the writing? Does J Love have the ability to suck talent out of people? I mean, some of the regulars on the show I've seen on other shows and they're not bad, but here? P-U.

Yes, J Love has great breasts. I'm pretty sure they are hers, but do they have to have such a large role in the show? Of course, the only thing worse than having those shoved in my face was when they were covered up by the Puritan collar. What were they thinking with that dress?

Sorry, no one who looks like Jamie is going to become such a huge failure. Worst case scenerio, he'd end up a salesmen somewhere. And I reiterate my statement from TaBfAYW - the boy cannot play drunk. ;)

Death can't stop The Pretty!

I'm probably mental, but I enjoyed the episode. Not in an "I should watch this every week!" sort of way, but it honestly wasn't as much of a chore as I was bracing myself for, though I was definitely more forgiving because of Jamie bein' there and keeping me interested during his scenes. Nothing too clever about this show, but I guess I can see the appeal to the blue-haired or family crowd. But I've watched a lot of 7th Heaven and that's probably blunted my bad TV reflexes. :)

Also...

Sorry, no one who looks like Jamie is going to become such a huge failure.

In addition to this, I'm pretty sure he could've found a woman (or twelve) willing to go with him to his reunion. But I guess since Brian was such a scared loser he just gave up after only asking one.
I think he could have found a woman or twelve to sleep with him. Did he try being an 'escort'? He could have been the wealthiest guy at the reunion!

Did you really want to confess to that? ;)

On the brightside, this actually made 'Ghost Rig' look better. :)
Psst... I also have watched far to much 7th Heaven and I thought this reaked.

So, 'Ghost Rig' is that terrible? Not even worth a Netflix for the "awwww" factor?
'Ghost Rig' is that terrible, however, there are three reasons to watch it:

1) The red tee shirt of hotness

2) You get to see him act with Kerry

3) You are not a REAL fan until you've seen this film ;)

Happy belated birthday, lovebug!!!!!!

And I know you'd look just as cute if you ever got hit by a truck. Heh.

That may be the most unique compliment I've ever received. Hee!
The DRESS! I yelled at the TV over that one. Her dress at the reunion also had some baaaad sleeves.

Mark Snow is the composer for the show. This makes me so sad.
I saw Mark's name in the credits too. I have to admit the music didn't annoy me...accept for the pop song at the end.

LOL!

I watched an episode of this once. I laughed all the way through it. I'm almost tempted to watch another because it's SO FUNNY. But sad because that's not its intention. So, hmmm.
I was reminded last night that I had sort of watched an episode before when Sean Maher from Firefly guest starred. But I can't say that I paid attention as I did here. I do seem to recall that his ghost/corpse was in perfect condition as well.

GW is one of the stupidest things I've seen in awhile. It's like our generations Murder She Wrote. ;p
Poor Asta. The sacrifices you keep making... ;-) At least it was a considerate truck? Imagine all that and a messed up face...
I could understand his ghost being pretty, but the body should be messed up. I would have liked to have heard the medical examiner explain how he got hit by a truck, which resulted in only a few broken ribs, and apparently that caused his death. Yes, I know, I'm thinking too much about this. :/
I'm still waiting to see the ep (maybe I'll be able in a few hours). But I survived "Ghost Rig", so I believe I'll survive this, too.
This is off-topic, but have you listened to the editing podcast? It's pretty interesting if you can get into it. There was quite a bit of material that they cut/tweaked. They actually shot all the stuff in the sides we read (you can hear the scenes play out) as well as some other stuff that we didn't know. Adama was going to go be in the rescue raptor? It was also interesting to hear different readings of the same scenes. One of the Bill/Carol-Anne scenes they run through 4 different ways. Oh and for Bill/Laura shippers there's an extended version of the cabin scene...

I came away from it feeling pretty good about the whole process. They did seem to make the best ep they could from the material they had (and some they didn't, lol). Ron chortles about how they had Aaron and Nicki shoot that green screen stuff and then Gary Hutzel convinces him to do it all in CGI, lol.

Anyhoo, it enlivened my day at the library... ;)
I came across the editing podcast yesterday and listened to about an hour of it. I had this brilliant idea that I could listen to it all at work, but about ten minutes into it I started taking notes and thought I'd transcribe the deleted footage/dialogue (which, for me, was the most interesting part and, sorry, no way in hell is Lee 29 ;) and the one hour of podcast equaled about three hours of listening with all the stops and starts. I'm going to try and finish listening tonight and hopefully get a write up up by tomorrow. But, yeah, I agree this was actually pretty enlightening.

Adama in the raptor? Um, the Admiral *and* the CAG in the middle of a dangerous mission? Which would leave Tigh in charge should something go horrible wrong. Eek!
I thought Jamie was terrific, and he completely stole the show. Frankly though, they completey mis-marketed the episode. Creepy and eerie? Hardly...it was played for humor from beginning to end.

JLH didn't impress me in the least though. She came across as an overly made-up Barbie doll playing "dress up and pose for the camera" in some very dubious wardrobe selections. I loved Jamie's performance and his story in this episode, but except for Jay Mohr (who managed a few good bits of dialogue) the series regulars were all a total bore.
