I don't get why the writers are so afraid to make a major move. In its first season, Dynasty had its main character Blake Carrington kill (albeit accidentally, but still) his son's gay lover. It didn't have significant consequences for the character, but it was a bold move and it did directly lead to Joan Collins's Alexis being introduced the following season (and the rest is history). That was 1981. Why can't the writers of Revenge, in 2012, be a little more gutsy?

At least Daniel shot Tyler first and it wasn't in self-defense. That's the only thing that kept me from throwing my remote at the TV. But still, very lame.
I feel like that was just thrown in to keep people from being pissed about the Takeda twist.

I can just hear the writers: "Hey, let's have Tyler be the one who dies... because, you know, we can't allow anything of consequence to happen on this show, and we can't let the killer be one of our main characters because that might force us to move the plot along, so let's pin it on Takeda... and just incase people get pissed, let's write it so Daniel fires at least one shot so we can pretend like we have balls even though we have none."
You might be right about that.

It's very frustrating. I don't understand what the point of this plot is now. One peripheral character gets killed by another peripheral character -- so what? How is this going to affect the long-term story in any major way? I'm trying to stay optimistic, but it just keeps getting more difficult to do so.

The Asian dude probably did it all.


A guest star killing a guest star is not the direction I wanted this show to take.
If the killer ends up being Takeda or someone equally peripheral, then I'll happily hop on the backlash bandwagon.
Ready to hop on? ;)
LoL. That pissed me off. At least Daniel shot Tyler first and it wasn't in self-defense. That's the only thing that kept me from throwing my remote at the TV. But still, very lame.

I don't understand ABC's thinking. You can't do all these pre-emptions and hiatuses with a show this serialized. Not in 2012!

Meanwhile, I was kind of underwhelmed by tonight's episode.

GH: February Discussion
Really enjoyed today's show. All the scenes involving the characters informing each other of and/or reacting to Robin's death were great. Jason Thompson continues to slay me.

I'm ready for Blair to hit Port Charles!

Unfortunately, the writers can't end the show after just one season, so they're going to do everything they can to drag it out and hope that the love triangles and legal dramas and such will keep us entertained in the meantime.
It's working for me, LoL.

I know this show isn't the greatest written on the air by any stretch of the imagination. I'm just thrilled to finally have an honest-to-goodness primetime soap again (as opposed to pseudo-soap posers like Desperate Housewives and others of its ilk). That being said, I'm genuinely enjoying Revenge.

I hate this Dayana girl. The faces she made while Lisa was talking/crying were so childish.

Admittedly, I'm biased because Lisa's the only reason I'm watching this anyway, but she annoyed the hell out of me with her obnoxious smirks. I don't like that Patricia woman either. Actually, Lisa's pretty much the only one on the women's team I like, LoL.

I love George Takei (NOT a Trekkie, though), but I have a feeling he'll be the first one cut from the men's team when they lose.

A man is totally going to win this season, IMO.

GH: February Discussion
I'm gonna need Helena to bump off at least a few more people on this show. The way she just so casually instructed her goon to kill her own daugther was stone cold. And kind of awesome.

True Blood: Alan Ball Steps Down as HW
As much as I love Alan Ball....True Blood isn't really a show I watch for the quality of the writing. Even though it's on HBO, I consider it more of a guilty pleasure. Not a big loss, IMO.

Monday, February 27th Daily Discussion
I liked the conversation between Will and Sonny today. Will's lines were pretty good (although the line about Kate bothered me -- like a mature woman who intentionally dyes her hair blue is going to care that her grandson is gay?). CM played it well, too.

I also thoroughly enjoyed Marlena telling Sami to shut the hell up. If only it had taken.

Daniel/Nicole makes me want to gouge my eyes out. Run, Nicole. Run very, very fast.

The 84th Academy Awards
I've never actually seen The Artist, myself. It doesn't look like something I'd really be interested in, but I'm not violently angry that it won, either.

Drag just smashed her wine bottle.

I wanted it to be Viola, but Meryl is one of my favorites, so I'm not upset.

I like Glen, and Meryl....but rooting for Twilla. The Help was amazing.

The 84th Academy Awards
Oh, good grief. Do they really need to give these nominees verbal hand jobs before announcing the winner?

Finally! The home stretch.

Am I the only one left underwhelmed by this In Memoriam? I think it's the song.

Meryl looks like she walked off the set of Dynasty. All she's missing are the shoulder pads.

I'm already asleep, Douglas.
