So I may or may not be leaving the state for a much needed mini-vacay, but I didn’t want to leave the blog hanging, so the review is a day early again this week.
*I am definitely going to need an iTunes budget with all the upcoming new music, plus Glee. For those of you who missed it, iTunes posted all the Glee Season 1 tracks on their service, including some that were previously unavailable like Accafella’s riveting version of “I Want to Sex You Up.”
*I made the best discovery ever this week. Jensen Ackles (Dean Winchester from Supernatural for those of you playing the home game) can totally sing. Simply because I can, enjoy his cover of The Band’s “The Weight” below.
*While I’m not sure One Tree Hill came back with a bang, it certainly came back with a bite. Given that this season picks up right after the finale last season, it seems awfully miraculous that every female character has a completely different hair color. The Clay/Quinn thing was completely contrived and predictable, yet still managed to make me yell at my TV when Nathan walked away from the house. Favorite line of the night came from Julian when he told Brooke’s mom to “Get Alexander’s dingo out of your wallaby and fix this!”
*I can already see Life Unexpected is going to frustrate me this season since we now know that Ryan has a dirty little secret named Julia tucked away in his past. And once again, Baze gets screwed…granted if he would start thinking with his brain instead of his libido, he may also get to win occasionally.
*The Vampire Diaries is still amazing. The writers are showing no mercy this season to any character. I enjoyed the scene between Damon and Jeremy and hope that they explore that dynamic as the season goes on. I am also loving Caroline the vampire. Not that we need more Stefan’s in the world, but I don’t want Matt to get his heart broken again.
*While I’m not sure how riveted I am by Nikita herself, I am completely fascinated by Lindsey Fonseca’s character, Alex. Hopefully, they’ll keep pushing her out there more. And for the record, I disagree with the critics’ assessment of Shane West’s performance as stiff. I think he’s just warming up.
All right, I’m outtie. Everyone go see The Easy A and watch Ghost Adventures tonight. They’re in Gettysburg so it should be interesting.
