Random Thoughts on the Scandal Premiere

GUSTAVO ADOLFO, PORTIA DE ROSSI

Was the Gone Girl product placement because the movie is coming out? Or just a pop culture connection to Olivia being on an island and  a “gone girl’?

Did we really need to see the finger banging?

How did Olivia get her hair straightened between the island girl do and the car ride, which appeared to be from the airport?

Who leaves an island with expensive wine deliveries by boat with no one there but your horny finger banging boyfriend to go back for a funeral when you just decided to leave that life forever?

Someone who wants to fuck the POTUS again, that is who? WTF is wrong with Olivia or whatever her dumb name is now? Continue reading

Viewing Primer For ABC’s How To Get Away With Murder (Episode One Spoilers)

HTGAWMOkay, here is my take on things so far. This may be useful down the road, or not. Your opinions may vary. Please share with me. And forgive me, I’m writing at 5 am because I went into the world yesterday and got hit by one of my narcolepsy things when I got home. I hope I am making sense.  I know this will be the water cooler talk for the day and I wanted to have something up.

Setting: Philadelphia, Middleton Law School, Courtrooms, Good Places to Dump Bodies.

Characters:

Annalise Keating (Viola Davis) Keating is a law professor and practicing criminal defense attorney. Keatings opening line is “I don’t know what terrible things you’ve done in your life up to this point, but clearly your karma is out of balance to get assigned to my class.” There is an age-old rule given to new teachers, “Don’t smile until Christmas.” It’s generally thought to be a bad rule, but I say from about 7th grade on, it can be useful, if not a bit excessive. You don’t have to wait until Christmas, maybe just Halloween. The point is to be firm and in control until rules are set and behavioral expectations are being consistently met. Only then can you lighten up. I took Keating’s comment to be her version of that. Oh was I wrong. As it turns out, being assigned to her class can be life-altering, and making her short list of five interns can ruin your life.

Sam Keating (Tom Verica) Annalise’s husband who is a psychology professor. Sam is interviewing for a job a Yale.One of his female students  has gone missing and is found dead in a big water tank of some kind that is connected to a sorority house on the first episode. What the heck kind of water tank was that? It was huge and made no sense. It seems like Sam  could be connected to the dead girl, Lila Stangard’s, death. When the couple watch the news of Lila’s death on TV Annalise says, “I betcha the boyfriend did it.” It wasn’t said as a casual comment. The two stare at each other and Sam say, “I guess we’ll see.”   Continue reading

ABC Thursday Night Lineup! Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, & How To Get Away With Murder!

Kerry Washington ScandalHey y’all. I ran a few errands in the world today and didn’t eat until late in the afternoon. As soon as I ate I fell asleep while trying to catch up on a few things online.  I’m not sure what exactly causes the narcoleptic fits but I’m sure it’s related to blood sugar or something I ate. Anyway, I’ve been looking forward to ABC’s primetime lineup tonight and it’s all recorded in case I doze off again.  I am certainly not alert enough to recap.

UPDATE: Random Thoughts on the Premiere Here!

Scandal with  all of that fast talking the cast does. If you see this in time you can catch some of my old Scandal recaps here to get caught up.

I just watched parts of the season finale and remember enough now to be ready for the premiere, Columbus Short’s character is gonna die Eli Pope is responsible for killing Fitz and Mellie’s son, though most people think it was Olivia’s mom, Olivia’s Mom is thought to be dead but Eli has her in the hole in the ground cell at B613, and Olivia and Jake have flown off to parts unknown, and Huck has just walked up to the front door where his long lost family lives.
