The Vast Wasteland

Sheila's rantings, most likely of no interest, on TV, movies, books, music, etc.

Location: Seattle, Washington, United States

I live in Seattle, am married, have two cats (one is a genius, the other insane), and am a mild-mannered copy editor by day. I love horseback riding, coffee, reading, TV, movies, music, playing (too much) World of Warcraft, and lying on the couch. This isn't a personal blog, but rather a place for me to vent about movies, TV shows, books, music, etc. Thanks for checking in!

On Vacation

Just a note that I'll be on vacation until October 27.
Happy viewing until then, my kittens!

Who's Your Favorite Top Model Contender?

Right now, mine is AJ (always love the gothy girls)...followed by Caridee or either of the twins. Good season so far--I liked the circus freaks photo shoot.

And the Winner Is....

The only new show of the season to remain on my DVR's recording list after the pilot episode:

The Nine

Didn't think it was fabulous, but it held my interest, was nicely paced, and has potential.

The Lost Season 3 Premier

Creepy, eh? A nice summary and commentary by Mo Ryan can be found here.

Veronica Mars Season 3 Premier!

Well, what did you think? I liked it. I see what Rob meant about slowing down the pacing--it was like watching a normal show rather than VM (which always moves so fast I have to rewind often and rewatch the next day). It was definitely a good introduction to the show and characters for newcomers. A few more detailed comments (keep in mind that I've only watched it once--though it's saved on my DVR for future viewings) are below.
  • Nice to see VM in high def
  • MAC! VINNIE! Love the series returnees
  • Also, love the girl interactions with Mac and Veronica. So good to see her with a female friend.
  • Wow, who knew Ryan Hansen can do tortured as well as glib? Poor Dick. I wonder what "bad thing" he did? (Bet it was awful.) Huh--can't believe I just said "poor Dick" either! I loved to hate him last season.
  • The new credits are very nice--sophisticated and dark. (Though I do miss the more manic credits, which usually caused me to sing along and dance around...)
  • Piz seems cute. And of course he'd be major crushing on Veronica--who wouldn't? (Loved the scenes with him and Wallace "being gross," as Veronica put it. Sooo funny and real.)
  • I'm a bit unclear about the whole Fitzpatrick/Kendall subplot. What do you think was going on? (It'll be clearer when I rewatch, I'm sure.)
  • I can't believe Keith didn't catch Vinnie putting something in his bag. For shame, Keith. Your daughter would never have fallen for that!
