    S12.E27: Live Finale, Part 1

    Carrie's showmanship inproved leaps and bounds after Idol. Lauren could too with some stage training, if she wants to go that route.

    Game Of Silence

    Well of course this didn't feel like a series finale... they already filmed the episodes before getting the cancellation news, right?
  3. I think this is the oldest group of finalists for Voice since season 1? Guess America has moved on from the teens.... until next season with Miley Cyrus.

    S10.E27: Live Finale, Part 1

    My mind instantly went to Pink when I read this. I bet she could do this version justice while spinning 25ft above ground. (and perhaps fitting to the lyrics I'll be watching..... ). Hannah did fine for the most part, until the bridge - she lacked oomph for that portion. I can already see this version being used in a future DWTS episode.

    S28.E11: That's Money, Honey

    If I was the art judge, I would fail Dana couple more times just for her mega bitch face and eye rolling when she was told the spacing was wrong. "I don't want to talk anymore, I just want to hang these damn things on the wall." No Princess, you don't get this handed to you on your first try. Or 2nd. Or 3rd. Can't believe Miss one-chicken-at-a-time is in the finals.

    Game Of Silence

    I wonder how Jessie even got involved in the first place, unless she was with Jackson on the night he decided to drive by Quitman. Unless it really wasn't a drive-by, but rather a planned assault/murder because Jackson knew Red's schedule/habits. Jackson was wrong when he claimed the warden doesn't know who Jessie is. Ray definitely knows she is involved with the boys. Not sure what to make of that focus on security camera at the end... was it the same cameras Jackson had installed? I have a feeling Terry and/or Ray is watching them via those tampered spycams.

    S10.E21: Live Top 10 Performances

    Adam is kinda smart with his "critique" of Shalyah - casually mention what song he wants her to sing NEXT week, heh.

    S01.E15: Inheritance

    That stuff Noah is doing with the banana bags (whatever that is).... is it legal? I guess it is or April would have reported him. The whole thing just seem to fishy. Wonder if Noah stole it from work.

    S10.E18: Live Top 12 Eliminations

    Looks like Adam Levine borrowed one of Phil Keoghan's blouse for tonight's show.

    S10.E17: Live Top 12 Performances

    Evanescence - My Immortal Annie Lennox - Dark Road Sadly those are the only 2 songs I can think of. Incidentally, both songs have similar structure, start out somber and haunting, into a more "rock-out" climax.... which probably works well for a competition.

    Game Of Silence

    The double-triple-quad crossing has begun. I wonder which team Bobby is on. He was lying to both sides. I hope she's not pristine clean like they want us to believe.

    Game Of Silence

    The foundation of the story is really bad shit happened in the juvie back in the days that changed the boys (+ Jessie) lives forever. The guys surpressed those memories and moved on with their lives.... until the recent events bring it all back to the surface. One dead friend set the motion for the remaining 3 into revenge mode. Anyone who watched Sleepers already know the premise. We know how it started, and we have an idea how it will end. Details of the the bad shit that happened in juvie will be revealed, a little at a time, over the episodes. I suspect they will continue with the back and forth past+present storytelling. We aren't supposed to know who the guy in the woods was for now, just that Jackson killed someone and Jessie was a witness/accomplice. Whether or not that's the right strategy to hook viewers ..... we'll find out soon enough.

    S02.E09: Nailed

    How does he even know the route of the Regalo truck? Did he tail the truck? I wonder which highway it was where the whole setup took place. From the water compass, the truck is heading south-ish. That billboard which Mike parked his car behind, as well as the hose-ropeline setup, is of something Oasis Motor Court (with a "Next Exit" graphic that looks more like a freeway map marker). There was a green highway sign that shows how far to the next few cities, like what you see on a normal freeway. It read: Socorro .......... 14 Las Cruces ....161 El Paso ........ 207 I-25(S) passes through all 3 cities. As do a set of highways that travels near and sorta parallel I-25. 14 miles north of Socorro would place the truck somewhere between San Acacia and Polvedera. There's NO WAY Mike could have set all that up on an interstate freeway, and the road does not look like a freeway either. The only highway-type roads going south-ish near the area is NM-408. I guess the showdown between Mike's rhododendron hose and cartel's ice cream truck took place at a ficticious location?

    S10.E16: Live Playoffs, Results

    My least favorite round. Kicking 12 people on the 1st week of Lives seem so unneccessarily brutal. They could just cut 4 a week and reach the finale in the same amount of time.

    Game Of Silence

    I didn't see any previews until tonight during The Voice, it reminded of The Sleepers. I was intrigued, didn't turn off TV after Voice and watched the pilot. But is this supposed to be a multi-season show? Seems like it would have been better as a 10-15 episode miniseries. Otherwise, I can already feel the onslaught of convoluted triple-crossing back-stabbing plots that will just make me tune out. Why are the boys in juvi dressed in different colored uniforms? Age group? Severity of crime?

    Haha. His name is Nate, but no probs, we'll call him Mike. :P

    S10.E15: The Live Playoffs, Night 2

    Hey Hannah, if you are gonna go the screamy route, at least do it with conviction like Sisaundra Lewis. Oh right, you don't have the chops for that.

    S10.E14: The Live Playoffs, Night 1

    There's definitely some merit in using familiar/overused songs (aka warhorse in the figure skating world), as long as you don't butcher it like Kata did with hers. It takes a special performance for me to like a song I've never heard before.... like Bo Bice with Whipping Post, Elliot Yamin with Moody's Mood for Love. Joe may have done well, but the melody of the song did not grab me and neither did the performance. But what's worse than someone not liking the song or performance? Them forgetting it. For this playoffs, maybe it's better to be subpar than forgettable.

    Yup. It's like she's singing Artificial Woman.

    Season 13 New Format

    Ewww, no thanks. Hope their ratings tank even further with this ridiculous change.

    S15.E24: Winner Chosen

    If I was attending the finale, I'd get Constantine a gift basket filled with various soaps. It's mind boggling how he managed to look unwashed and gross for more than a decade! Speaking of gross, does JLo's ass really needed all that publicity? Are her Vegas shows not selling well or something? Her poor kids are gonna get mocked for that footage. Instead of dedicating a 5-minute segment for JLo shedding her clothes, I wish they would've had all the judges performed a song or medley together. And then have Simon walk out to give his classic 'ghastly cruise ship birthday parties with karaoke clowns' critique at the end. Boom, done!

    Gilligan's Islands - Overview of BCS and BB

    I think this acts as an umbrella thread talking about everything that intertwined in the BB/BCS world, while the individual episode threads focuses on that particular episode. It's kinda tough to adhere strictly because some of the subplots span over several episodes. For example, this season's first two episodes focused mainly on that idiot Pryce, and he did not appear for the remaining episodes... so we would not be having discussions about Pryce in episodes 'Rebecca' or 'Inflatable'. That's my take on the purpose of this thread anyway.

    S02.E06: Bali Ha'i

    Haha, had to snicker at the description "racy" car. I have one (a 2003 gts), and while it looks sporty (not really), it drives like a sedan and corners like a delivery van. I've driven an old Oldsmobile that has better turning radius, no joke. Besides, that 3rd gen Eclipse's black paint would not last in ABQ sun. Kim did not do her research, or it was indeed a company leased mobile. :P

    S10.E10: The Knockouts Premiere

    Yea I agree, it would have been a complete trainwreck without the changes Miley suggested. She was rushing through the song for reasons unknown; the tempo was off, pacing was off, her pitch was off; and worst of all, she used too many "styles" in an attempt to make the song her own. It was all over the place when she could have just sung it straight up like Zach Seabaum did in his Blinds last season. That said, I think she would still lose to Paxton no matter what she does. This song or not.
