A good friend of mine came into town a couple weeks back. I usually introduce her to some new anime, but this time, she decided she wanted to introduce me to VM.
To be honest, I'd heard that the show existed, but never what it was about. So, hey, why not give it a whirl?
And it is AWESOME. I only got to see the first disc, but yummy! Sure, a lot of it is predictable, but it wasn't a cheesy predicable. More of "A-ha! I was so right, niener niener!" After awhile, I shut up with my predictions as I was thinking I might be becoming rather annoying.
Which is when coldfury showed up and started spouting off all of the predictions I was keeping in my head! My favorite: Evil!Parker. Er, that would be Troy, that guy Veronica starts dating to get over her ex. And yeah, he just radiates Parker from BtVS.
The amusing thing about Troy, actually, is that the actor (so I hear) plays Jimmy on Smallville. And Veronica looks like Chloe from VM... and it's so weird! If I actually still watched that crap, I might be weirded out!
Anyway, so I'll be checking more of VM out in the future! Whee, more shows to watch.
So You Think You Can Dance
Words cannot describe how PISSED OFF I was when **spoiler here, don't read if you haven't watched the last episode!** Jessi was kicked off! GRRRRRRRR. I was so mad that I actually signed a petition online to get her back on the show... and I wrote an email to Fox. *Cough*
For those not in the know, here's what happened: Jessi's heart started freaking out on her so she went to the emergency room the morning of the Wednesday performances. Her EKG turned out to be wonky and they weren't sure if she'd be back in time for the elimination round. So, if she didn't make it, she'd be officially kicked off. If she managed to get back from the hospital in time, she'd be in the bottom and have to dance for her life.
She made it. Danced her missed cha-cha with Pasha. (It was HOT HOT HOT.) She did a solo that was eh, but compared to the other three girls, it was actually pretty decent.
And so it's time to say who goes home. Nigel tells Lauren her solo sucked big monkey balls (and since she's his pet, that's saying something).. and then has Jessi come forward, and with no explanation, tells her she's gone.
UGH. UGH UGH UGH. You just know she got kicked off because she went to the hospital. And that makes me so damn mad! She was the best female dancer. And no one got to vote for her. ARGH. SO WRONG.
Angel/Devil romance... not as good as advertised
I finished reading Michelle Rowen's Angel With Attitude romance novel. It was so damn CRAPPY. Bleh. I was so excited about the idea of an angel and a devil crashing in the grey for some action.
Instead, I got some awful stereotyping, some hurl-worthy sap, and skipped over sex. Umm, WTF?
And one last thing...
MAKE NICK GO AWAY, I AM SO SICK OF HEARING 'RAY-RAY' THAT I MAY GO INTO A HOMICIDAL RAGE.
... Okay, not really, but I'm seeing Mr. Brooks tomorrow, so let's hope it doesn't give me ideas.
