Asta 2

(no subject)

No need for a subject line since my icon sums up what I was feeling earlier tonight. So, this season on American Idol the viewers are choosing not to listen to the singing?

If this keeps up every week I don't know if I can watch. America, you made me agree with Paula! NOOOOOO!!!! None of those folks deserved to be in the bottom three. LaToya?! She's being picked as one of the final two. Of course that's by writers and critics who are basing their analysis on, oh, gee, singing ability.

Poor John Stevens. He knew he sucked the night before. You could see he was resigned to his name being called when it was down to he and LaToya. And when it was LaToya's name called and he looked genuinely shocked. Not to mention guilty. He was fighting back tears the rest of the night. We know this because the producers refused to take the camera off him so the country could share in his agony. Nice.

Almost as nice as Ryan Seacrest telling us all that whoever got voted off was a great big loser with no hope of ever having a career. Their dreams ruined, facing a life in the fast food industry. Huh? So, the plan is to put these folks on a pedestal then tear their self esteem to shreds once up there. Just in case you can't tell, I was pretty disgusted with tonight's show.

I've decided it would be best if Marissa *and* Ryan were to die on The O.C. Though, it is humorous to note that the two who were to be THE stars of the show, THE hot couple, are the most boring aspect of it. Anyone disagree with me that the Cohen family drama was far more interesting and entertaining than the Marissa/Ryan overblown angst fest?
  • Current Mood: shocked shocked
The Cohens are indeed the most interesting and entertaining family on TV. ::hugs you:: But the kissing scene with Ryan and Cal's tarty girlfriend (remember that?) keeps my hopes up that Ryan will one day return to greatness.

There is no hope for Marissa, however. Unless she gained fifty pounds. I'd tune in for that!
Once again, I couldn't agree with you more about American Idol. It's practically a joke this time around. And I was repelled by Ryan's opening comments about the crushed dreams and inevitable obscurity of the people voted off. It was cruel, absurd, and unnecessary. And yet at the end he offered Amy Adams congratulations on all she had achieved. What the FRELL, indeed! I may have to stop watching.

As far as the O.C., it was bad too. I loved the Cohen family drama and Seth and Summer were as cute as always, but the Marissa and Ryan story was horrible. Why was Marissa in Chino? It's not like she had no where else to go. Why did she not want to go home? She lives with her father! She wouldn't even have to see her mother. Why was Ryan the one out to rescue her? Oh, he's a sap. But why was Julie holding Ryan responsible for bringing Marissa home? Ryan had nothing to do with it. Why was she threatening him? I could have driven a truck through the confusing gaps in that storyline.
On the brightside, your Ryan Seacrest lust has been killed forever! ;)

And I was repelled by Ryan's opening comments about the crushed dreams and inevitable obscurity of the people voted off. It was cruel, absurd, and unnecessary.

Yes, yes, yes. Maybe, maybe, I could have taken one joke, but the entire half hour? And perhaps I'm mistaken, but I heard no one in the audiance laughing. Some of the participants on that stage are kids - sixteen years old - with their lives ahead of them and the show is telling them if they don't win AI their life is over??? Oh, wait, and Simon is the bad guy? ::rollseyes::

The O.C. lost me in Chino. Because I was unaware that when upset you run away to your quasi boyfriends ex's house who you barely know to live and become part of the family. I'm sure Therea has already asked Marissa to be the godmother of her first born. :p

I didn't get any of the stuff with Julie either. The first thing I thought of too was the *fact* that Marissa lives with her father. I guess we were supposed to forget about that little detail.

On the brightside, your Ryan Seacrest lust has been killed forever! ;)

It is dead, dead, dead! Never to return. I've buried it in Chino. :p

Maybe, maybe, I could have taken one joke, but the entire half hour? And perhaps I'm mistaken, but I heard no one in the audiance laughing.

I don't remember any audience response to those comments. If someone is writing that dialogue they seriously need to rethink the tone. You're right about the contestants being mostly kids. If the pressure of performing isn't enough, the commentary will surely break them. At least Simon offers genuine critiques, what Ryan was saying was just mean.


I haven't been able to watch AI this season, because everytime I turn it on, the performances are so horrific that my ears start to bleed. I've ruined too many shirts that way. So I missed all of Ryan's nasty comments, but I honestly think they must be scripted, because he doesn't seem to be like that usually. Dunno. I'm faint with hunger and probably not making sense.

And WORD about The O.C. Marissa is the most annoying character EVER and I wanted to slap her instead of her slapping Luke. And when Julie threatened to say that Ryan had kidnapped Marissa? WTF? What the hell was that?
