No Job? No Problem! Just write about TV!

So, it has been quite a while since I have updated this blog. (Funny story, I once sent someone a preview of my post her first comment was “You say ‘So’ a bit too much.” I guess I never learn). Anywho, it has been a while, and since my last serious post, I have only done drunk posts. Disclaimer: I have had a few drinks, but this is not my normal drunken ramblings.

Currently, I am at a crossroads. I have finished my first years of graduate school, and am in this hellish purgatory of desperately searching for a summer internship. All of my classmates have either already started their internships or have one locked down. Meanwhile, I am sitting here with a bottle of wine, on the last days of May, still scrambling to find one. It is kind of sad, and pathetic (this internship is required for my degree). Since I am still me, I am using my downtime to *be productive* which means applying to more internships and watching TV. After reminiscing with some new friends about the blog I used to have, I realized this is the perfect time to get it started again. The reason I stopped blogging was because I didn’t feel like I had the time to make my posts as perfect as I needed them to bed. Well guess what, now I have the time.  So guess whose back? Back again? ITS ME!

I am not sure what shows I am going to write about, but I am going to spend the night and weekend trying to figure it out. If you have any suggestions (granted there is anyone still actually reading this blog) please let me know!!!!!

Guess Who's Back, Back again (with the OC)

So, (I was once told I use the word ‘so’ too much in my recaps, which make it a perfect way to start his one off). SO, I have not published a post in a really long time. Since my last post a lot in my life has changed. I quit my job, started going for my masters for public health, but most importantly my life has come to the point where I need to now schedule my TV watching into my calendar. Also during this time I forgot to pay for my right to my URL and sadly I no longer own the rights to L.

So, you are almost definitely thinking to yourself ”APB is back?!?!?! Something amazing must have happened to bring her back to the cyber blogging awesome world.” The answer is yes, what brought me back actually was The O.C. Most specifically Season 1 Episode 2 “The Model Home.”

Pretty Little Liars 2x20: You Can't Steal My MIND

Rosewood’s HotSpot
So, over at Rosewood High Emily has FINALLY been allowed back onto the swim team. Thank god. As much as I love Emily and everything about her (especially when she wears flannel) I am not sure if I could take another full 45 minutes hearing about how she is no longer on the swim team. She is back in the water where she belongs, and all is right in the world.

Spencer and Aria are waiting for their gay shark to come from the pool.

Once Upon a Drinking Game

Do you know what makes watching a show about Fairy Tales more fun, watching a show about Fairy Tales when drunk. Also, I have not produced a new drinking game for a show in quiet some time and boy, is it easy to make up good rules for Once Upon a Time. So ladies and gentleman, may I present to you

The Once Upon a Time Drinking Game

Pretty Little Liars 2x15: Party at the Lakehouse

Last Week On PLL: Hanna hit A with a car and Emily almost got killed for the bagillionth time

The Liars run back into the Greenhouse of horror trying to wrap their heads around what just went down.

Aria: God Hanna how hard did you hit him/her/it with your BEAUTIFUL TOYOTA.
Hannah: I hit it as hard as I would hit any stationary object while driving. You know my track record with cars.
Spencer:  Dammit guys, A locked her phone. If my calculations are correct, there are 4 digits, 10 numerical options meaning there are…..
Emily: (Cutting Spencer Off) What THE FUCK guys, where WERE you. Why did you leave me all alone to die?
Hannah: Death would be preferable to my night. I just learned Kate the Bitch is moving back to town.
Aria: Psh, seriously Hannah, I win this hands down. Ezra just came out to my parents. How can one’s night get worse than that?
Emily: Are you guys’ blind, or do you not see the shards of glass in my hair? A just almost killed me inside a Greenhouse. A GREENHOUSE!

When the girls are done comparing horrible nights, the issue of A’s phone arises. Spencer, Emily and Aria all agree that they should bring the cell to Caleb, Rosewoods Cell Phone Extraordinaire.  Hanna does not. She doesn’t want her boy’s hair to get greased up in any more illegal scams. Instead, she suggests that they just bring the phone to the local “phone store” and if that doesn’t work, they can call a random guy in India.

A Bit Longer

Hey Guys,

So I know I have been AWOL from this site for a while. I recently started a new job and am trying to focus my time on that. For right now I am not sure how often I will be able to update my site. I do plan on getting back to a weekly routine of recaps, but now for now my postings will most likely be sporadic. I will still be live tweeting during my favorite shows, so be sure to follow me on Twitter  @TVwithAPB

Thanks guys!

Pretty Little Liar 2x11: "Doctor Knows Best"

Emily is tossing and turning in her bed, at 3:07 AM, when she receives a mysterious text from A. After a full 2 hours and 8 minutes of processing this text, she decides to run away from the Marin house. As Emily revs the engine of her, Hanna awakes and realizes her dear roommate, and friend, is gone.

Like any good lover friend, Hanna calls the other two PLL’s to investigate this disappearance, and they come as quickly as possible. Aria is sure that Emily has fled to Texas, and is correct. The camera cuts to Emily, who is in the woods running to Texas as they speak. She’s obviously ditched her car by the side of the road, realizing that traveling by foot is the most practical and safe option. The girls find Emily’s phone and realize that the reason Em’s fled was because A sent her a racy pic of Ezria making out. 

Underneath there is a note reading “clue Ella and I’ll let you out.” Since Emily has a stronger backbone than Hanna, she decided to NOT tell Ella about Aria’s illegal relationship with her teacher, but to flee to Texas instead.

The Lion Games

Hey guys!!! Have you been watching PLL's new baby sister The Lying Game every Monday night and ABC Family? Well I have and I am ADDICTED! (Btw, I will refer to The Lying Games as "The Lion Games" from now becuase I like that better!) I watched the pilot at least three times already. Here are some of my thoughts on the first two episodes so far:

1) Intro?: I am totally not loving the intro. Compared to the The L Word, this intro is a god send. But seriously, the Lying Game's intro makes no sense to me. Why are they floating in a pool with their finger tips touching?

What does the song have to do with the show? This intro does not tell me anything about the show! Do these girls have a secret? How do I know if they can keep it? Will this one they will save? Can they lock it in their pocket? And most importantly, can they take this one to the grave?

Pretty Little Liars 2x10: "Who Needs To Go To College Anyways?"

College Fair:
It is college fair day at Roseweood High. Due to the fact that this day has optional attendance, I am very curious to see what percent of graduates end up going to college.  Anyway, Aria and Emily decide to get a jump start on this special day and have a breakfast date in the cafeteria.  Both girls have a bunch of Jason gossip to share with each other.

Emily: “Aria, where have you been? We snuck into Jason’s shed last night…”
 Aria: “I kissed Jason. OMG, what should I do? Should I tell Fitz?”
Emily: “Before you tell Fitz anything, Spencer and I found a bagillion picture of you either sleeping or drugged in Jason’s shed. Probably both though. It was pretty scary.”
Aria: “Wait ew creepy.”
Emily: “He is probably the one who taught Mike how to steal pottery from a cops apartment. He is totally using Mike to get closer to you.” (Spencer sits down at the table) “SPENCER. ARIA KISSED JASON. THEY KISSED, THEY KISSED.”

Spencer and Aria leave Emily to eat her well balanced breakfast on her own. She pours the Alpha-Bits into her bowl and is shocked to see the only Alpha-Bit coming out are “A”s. Inside, she finds a note that read: “You are the Weakest Link.  Goodbye.”

Pretty Little Liars 2x09: "Aria... The New Catnip for Pedophiles Everywhere"

Morning Adventures
Aria is at Ezra’s apartment for an early morning make-out session After Ezra goes to turn off his 7:21 alarm, he turns into Jason. Instead of shrieking  “Why is this ugly monster in Fitz’s bed,” Aria continues to make out with Jason… until her own alarm wakes her up. Everyone can take a big old deep breath now, the Jaria make-out session was only a dream.

Over at the morgue, Hanna and Emily have decided to join Spencer in the “Candy Striper Game”. They stand lookout while Spencer snoops around for the missing page from Allison’s coroner’s report.  

Spencer’s Scooby nose is not having luck today though. The page is nowhere to be found, and the coroner’s computer is password protected.  Does Hanna not remember that her boyfriend is a professional hacker from Allentown who used to be involved with hacking government websites? His expertise could have been useful in this very situation. Spencer is on full “Jason Did It” mode. Since A got killed by an object that may be a hockey stick and Jason may have had a hockey stick, he is the ONLY suspect. This may be just a guess, but I bet there were a ton of field hockey girls that hated Alison as well. Anyway, the three girls get distracted because Jenna and a nurse emerge from the elevator talking about Jenna’s miracle soon to be eye-surgery. Are surgery and the morgue on the same floor or is Jenna just there to feel her donor’s eyes?
