  1. When they announced Tatiana's name, I screamed, followed by a few tears of happiness. She really deserves one Emmy for each characters she portrayed this season, but I'm satisfied with the one.
  2. SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!! Tatiana Maslany wins Best Actress in a Drama Series!! I can die a happy woman now.
  3. I've had dibs since he was in one of my classes at UGA in the mid-80s, LOL. The man is sex on a stick.
  4. You're always welcome to sit at my table (I've been getting a little lonely all by myself, lol.
  5. Steve Harvey's can kiss his career as a TV Host bye-bye after that fuckup. The only reason I wish Trump still owned the pageant would be for him to have sailed down after that screw-up to tell him, "You're FIRED!!" Gotta say, though, I was pulling for Philippines to win as she had that "It" factor in spades, along with a sweetness to her that the others were lacking….I was also a bit "huh?" at Miss USA placing 2nd runner up, given that her answer to the final question had far more depth and intelligence than Colombia's shallow "I should win because I have all the attributes of a Latin
  6. Ugh...right there with ya on this. I cannot stand that kind of twee crap*, especially when the setting and context are such that the song and dance are intended to come across as organic and spontaneous. It doesn't work with the first viewing, which is bad enough, but after the damn thing has aired eleventy-billion times, I'm ready to use my TV for target practice. *My irritation with this type of song/dance extends to TV shows -- especially sitcoms -- in which S/D routines are non-existent. IME, they come across as something forced into the script for no reason other than to highlight
  7. Almost time to crack open a couple of glo-sticks, get your copy of Water Prayer Rasta mix (Matt the Alien Remix, of course) cranking on the turntable, and get your groove on! Regarding next weekend's Season Three Premiere, Space and BBCAmerica made the command decision to kick things up quite a few notches and turn the Premiere's Volume up to Eleven (as far as I'm concerned, the more volume given to Orphan Black, the better). For starters (and as originally posted upthread), next Saturday's premiere is going to be aired on all of AMC Network's channels. In addition to OB's North Ame
  8. So once again, NBC is going to ignore the one discipline in which the US is pretty much a lock for a medal -- Ice Dance (Chock & Bates). Who the hell makes these decisions for them? *rolls eyes*
  9. Seeing the complexity of the way King Eckbert plotted to carry out the slaughter of the the Viking settlement, it's obvious that, much like a Chess Master, he thinks several moves ahead and plans accordingly. One thing's for sure - I would never want to play poker with the dude. As much as I would love for Ragnar to kick the ever-lovin' shit out of Eckbert, Athelwulf, and anyone that crosses his path, there is no way King Eckbert doesn't have something in store for Ragnar. He has to know that as soon as word reaches Kattegat, Ragnar will return to Wessex to seek revenge, and Eckbert will
  10. Yup, that's the one. I'll see if I can find the clip of her on the catwalk on ANTM. You're absolutely right about that beach pose - a maroon if I ever saw one. Here's the fashion show from the ANTM finale: In each runway pass, the models are supposed to get increasingly scary and dramatic but continue to model through it and "Strike a Pose." I've posted the time-stamp for each of Caridee's passes on the runway. The final one is the best as she's a hot-ass fucking mess from head to toe the entire time: First pass: 1:22 Second pass: 2:10 Third pass: 4:42 Here'
  11. Thanks, bilgistic :) ******** As of late, they've been airing a relatively new commercial for Stelara (psoriasis medication) featuring Caridee English from America's Next Top Model that grates on my last nerve. For starters, her diction throughout the entire commercial is just awful, and throughout her voice-over, she keeps speeding up and slowing down. When you put those two things together, she winds up sounding like she's trying to set a speed-record for reciting The Tale of the Jabberwock with marbles in her mouth. Back when she won ANTM, the Fashion Show during the F2 wa
  12. JLD's Old Navy commercials were fast-tracked onto my Automatic Mute List. I've wracked my brain trying to understand why Old Navy feels this type of personality will appeal to consumers, because I don't know a single person that doesn't hate this series of ads. Seriously, Old Navy, what the fuck?! The following surely cannot be their sales concept: When it comes to buying clothes somewhere, there's no better inspiration to start spending than watching a celebrity spokesperson who's an overbearing, self-important gasbag invade a girl's personal space and, at the same time, give her the thi
  13. Tonight I sat down with a notepad to jot down any thoughts, snarks, and descriptions I had while watching (instead of trying to remember them after the show ended. Floki wasn't just annoying - he was full-on Jan-Brady-With-A-Raging-Case-Of-PMDD-Annoying. My thoughts were all over the map throughout this whole storyline. Between Siggy, Aslaug, and Helga having their identical dreams about The Wanderer, then having their 'dreams come true' (in the literal sense, lol) when Harbard showed up, and the fawning over him by Helga and Aslaug, it felt like I was watching the Norse vers

    Dig

    Not sure (will have to re-watch), but I could have sworn there was also a photo of Billingham with Mitt Romney. Guess it's a BiPartisan Apocalypse :P Last night's episode was a definite step up from the Pilot, which was a relief -- I was a bit "meh" last week, but if I gave up on new shows because the Pilot didn't have me on the edge of my seat from start to finish, I would have missed out on kickass shows like Battlestar Galactica and Orphan Black. Billingham and his flock of cult members creep me the fuck out (Lauren Ambrose's character being the exception). It has a somewhat simil

    Dig

    Having watched the second episode tonight, it was much-improved over the Pilot, which left me feeling a bit "meh" as well. I hope you will give watching another go before giving up on Dig. I've done script writing for both screen and stage, and I've learned from experience that pilot episodes, especially those in this type of genre, have to have a bunch of expository crap crammed into it -- they have to introduce the main players, provide varying amounts of character development and backstory to each of them, and insert a wide variety of informative bits and pieces to flesh out the settin
