Grey's 7x17: The Car Crash for a Musical

Sorry for the lateness. I am on vaca at my Grandma’s without wireless.

Sex vs. Stark: The episode opens with Jackson taking off his shirt, which is always a lovely sight, followed by he and Lexie start is getting hot and heavy on the washing machine. Suddenly, April the nun enters wanting nothing more than to clean her laundry. The easiest solution for April is to leave and do her laundry later because truthfully, once Lexie and Jackson start to get their chemistry on, you can’t stop the reaction.

April and Stark’s relationship has blossomed and grown since we last saw the half young couple. Apparently they are getting mixed signals about their relationship because April believes they are just friends while, truthfully, we are not fully sure what Stark thinks because he is not a main character. Stark allows Karev to actually do his job and help April with her patients so she can get to their date on time. Stark being nice to Karev, now you KNOW Stark wants in April’s pants.

Fringe Season 1: 6 Reasons It Was Awesome

Last Friday I was reading some of TheTVReferee’s tweets about Fringe and asked myself “Why again am I not watching that show?” So now seven days and 20 episodes later, I have completed Season One and I am as hooked as a “Trouty Mouth’s” lips. So below you will discover 6 things that I feel make this wacky, crazy, sci-fi, paranormal, amazing show so awesome.

1) What Dharma Could Have Been: After two episodes of this show I just kept thinking to myself, wow this is what Lost could have been like if we knew the shit Dharma was actually doing. I mean, aren't the experiments and paranormal and wacky shit that happens on Fringe what you imagined the Dharma initiative did as well, or at least the island. I mean time travel, random guys showing up everywhere (comparing Jacob to the Observer), mad sexual tension between the two leads. Okay, okay, the last one has nothing to do with the Dharma Initiative but anytime I can bring up Kate and Jack as a couple I will.

2)Gene: At first the cows presence was for practical reasons. This specific cow was the closest thing to humans and therefore it would be more ethical to do these experiments on the cow than on a human. I am pretty sure that no experiments have been conducted on Gene. Instead they order mice and rats to treat as, well, actual lab rats. Gene just looks over from his humble abode and laughs at them. Gene gets the royal treatment in the Bishop Laboratory. Walter takes the time out of his busy day to milk Gene and gets Astrid to help him with brushing Gene’s hair. My favorite part about Gene though, by far, is the reaction people have when they see Gene in the lab. Priceless.

Chris Brown on GMA: One Step Back for Humanity, One Huge Leap Back For Hair

All morning everyone has been going wild over Chris Brown's appearance on Good Morning America. I found out about it through my always trusty site/ mecca Entertainment Weekly. I do not usually talk about celebrity gossip on this site, but I just had to discuss this Chris Brown interview.

Okay first things first, WHAT IS UP WITH THAT HAIR. I saw it and the first thing that came to my mind was Luda's  "Roll Out" : "What the world is in that HAIR, What you got in that HAIR?" The answer is  a liter of bleach and a shit ton of crazy. He looks like Eminem circa 2001. I think he may have even been an extra in "The Real Slim Shady" music video. Seriously dude, that look didn't work ten years ago, and it still wont work today. That plus his cut off denim jacket with his fully tattooed arms. Too much Chris Brown. Too much. I think what made this even better is the fact that Robin Roberts starts off the interview by saying "My hair has grown a great deal since the last time I saw you too" (which truthfully it hadn't. Even though I am baffled why she made that statement, just so you know Robin  your hair is not the issue here.  Your hair is not the issue.

Criminal Minds: Are There Any Females Left?

Although Criminal Minds has been around since 2005, I only began watching in during my 2009-2010 winter break. I came home and the show was on both the Ion and A&E TV. Since there were no new episodes of my favorite shows airing, I began to watch it. I fell in love almost immediately. The first episode I ever watched was episode 3x01 “Doubt,” because I saw Elizabeth Hendrickson (Maggie/Frankie from AMC) in it. From that moment on I was hooked. I watched every episode that aired during break and when I got back to school I ordered the rest on Netflix. The show was mesmerizing and different from any other crime drama. The way the story was told, how you got to see into the Unsub’s, mind was amazing.

For the most part of its six year run, I have really loved and appreciated all of the main characters. Derek Morgan, although sometimes feeling morally superior to others, may be one of the sexiest men in the world. Add to that he is sensitive and awesome and you have the most attractive smoking hot man on TV (except for Taye Diggs). I also love Hotch. I have watched the 100th episode of Criminal Minds more times that I can recall. If you watch that episode and do not find a place in your heart for Aaron Hotchner, I think you are missing your humanity. Spencer Reid is a fun, cut, geeky character that the audience always just wants to hug. Finally you have David Rossi, the old, sometimes grumpy , but ultimately loveable old member.

Glee 2x16: "Original Songs Are Oh So Good"

So I am back to my usual recap by song recapping of Glee for this amazing Regionals episode.

“Misery”- What’s the best was to start an episode of Glee? Have Blaine bust open the doors to the Warblers practice room, throwing paper in the air and singing. Ten seconds in and the episode already has me hooked. While everyone seems super excited to sing background to Blaine, Kurt seems bored of the group being “Blaine and the Pips.” Kurt tells him that although his solos are great, they are also numerous. Also does anyone else feel like the Warblers are kinda like a cult?

“Only Child”- This is Rachel’s follow up to the amazing “My Headband”. It’s about being an only child oddly enough. Finn admits that it was a better attempt than “My Headband” but not by far. Here, for the first time in quite some time, we see the old sweet and thoughtful Finn. The Finn that brought Rachel to his quadriplegic friend Sean to show her that your life is not over if you can’t sing. He tells her to dig deeper into herself and tap into her real emotions. When she does that she will be able to write a killer song. Quinn watches this interaction from afar and begins a voice over about her Prom Queen dreams. Cut to her opening her closet which is not filled with one or two, but at least SEVEN tiara’s.

Yes I counted ATLEAST seven! Seriously that’s ridiculous! At first I thought they were her mom’s and her Prom Queen aspirations were due to parental pressures. That is not the case though. She decides to befriend Rachel in order to keep her away from Finn and assure an extra five years of life by winning the Prom Queen crown.

Skins 1x09- One of the Worst Episodes of Televsion

It is a fair to say that I will pretty much watch any TV show. I will give any show a chance and let it ride for a little bit until it gets on its steady tracks. There are some shows that I decide are decent but are not my cup of tea so I stop watching and others I keep on the backburner for when I am bored. I literally watched an episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County THREE TIMES in a row because I couldn't find my channel changer and I didn't want to get up from my bed. Last nights episode of Skins US was physically painful for me to sit through. Yes Skins is known for being over the top, crazy and things sometimes seem implausable, but in the end their is truth to the characters. Not only is their truth and honesty to the emotions that Skins usually creates but more importantly the storylines are entertaining.

Glee: The Landslide Will Bring You Down

There has been a lot of discussion about this weeks episode of Glee, and I wanted to put in my two cents as well. I am only really going to go over the Santana Brittany storyline of this episode because I feel like I have a lot to say about it. I have been going over it and over it in my head for the last two days.

Tempted by the Fruit of Another: After Brittany discovers that the stork that built a nest outside of her window is not bringing her a baby, she goes over to Santana’s to put in a Sweet Valley High DVD and get her cuddle on. While they were getting dressed after their sweet lady kisses (which isn't cheating because the plumbing is different) Brittany wants to talk about her feeling. Santana immediately shuts this down; she can’t talk to Brittany about her feelings because they are locked behind a steel door. If she lets them out then there is no turning back. Brittany convinces Santana to talk with an adult with her to try and figure out what is going on between them. Right here, this look Santana gives Brittany at this moment is the moment that the armor around Santana begins to break and she starts to give into her feelings.

Greek Series Finale: Oh Cappy My Captain

The Main Plot: The whole episode revolves around destruction of the KT house. Last week, after an awesome bed jumping party which led to the ceiling collapsing in, Spidey’s dad offered to buy the house for the fraternity. Although he seemed like a hero, you could tell from Parker’s reaction that there are some deep childhood issues between him and pops. The ass that is Spidey’s dad was apparently behind all of the destruction of KT this season. His whole plan was to get the house taken away from the fraternity in order to buy the land and donate it to the school. Want to know what makes this situation even more complicated? The case that Prof. Segal has Casey and Evan working on is this case, on the side of Lasker Parker (Spidey’s dad). As she should be Casey is torn.

Ghosts of Girlfriends Past: There was some precious bonding moments between Dale and Bex this week which I just ate up. First of all Rebecca may be my favorite character on the show. I think she is hilarious (although over the top at times), but she is a straight talker and is a really caring person at the end of the day. Rebecca and Dale are sulking due to the fact that while everyone around them seems to be getting engaged, they have never been in a successful relationship. Bex exclaims that she couldn't make it last with either boy that rode the Casey Train (Cappie and Evan) “or a girl.” Yes! I love how the show remembered this! I love bringing back references to past storylines in TV shows. To be truthful just the idea of Rebecca being gay again makes me happy. So to solve their problems, Rebecca comes up with a foolproof plan to discover why they are suck at relationships.

Rebecca: Hey, remember that terrible Matthew Mcconaughey film?
Dale: Sahara? Ed TV? The Wedding Planner? Failure to Launch? How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days? Fools Gold?
Rebecca: No! Ugh, “Ghosts of Girlfriends Past!” He visited all of his exes to learn about what went wrong.

I was cracking up, why does Dale know all these Matthew Mcconaughey films off the top of his head? Also Bex is so exasperated with him not knowing which movie that she just cut him off. The two join cahoots and decide to go ask all their exes why their relationships did not flourish. Later Bex runs into the kitchen, where Dale is frosting a cake, to announce the Robin claimed their relationship didn’t work out because Rebecca is not a lesbian. To this Dale responds in a perfectly monotone voice “despite your masculing energy.” I am dying here, I love these two. Laura walks into the kitchen and Dale conjures all of his confidence and asks her why they didn’t work out. Am I going crazy here or did he ignore her? Anyway they decide to get back together right there and then and push Bex into the cake while doing so. What do you think this face means? Whether she is happy or sad, she looks like a cute little puppy.
