I've tried making an icon out of this scene since...well, since it aired. Now I'm afraid to go look at it on one of my two other monitors because about half of my icons are scrapped because they look like crap on one of my three monitors, and I'm thinking this one will probably be a dud too.

I also uploaded frame-by-frame DVD caps of that scene here. Because I am insane. And I (like to pretend I) have no shame.



I finally figured out a way for me to get through Prison Break: skip anything that has T-Bag, skip most of the things that have to do with any of the convicts who are not related by blood, space out during most of the scenes with the brothers, ignore Michael's Mary Sue-ish tendencies and watch in fascination any time Sara is on-screen.



I've been watching Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares this weekend, because nothing is more entertaining than Gordon Ramsay on a rampage. (Though why does he insist on changing into his work clothes on camera? Trust me, I do NOT want to see his flab.)



Mondays are a good downloading day.

The Amazing Race
Lyn and Karlyn spending the whole way to Atlas studios talking about how they were going to yield the Beauty Queens and then mouthing off about how they were such better people than D&K because they sure didn't yield anyone! must have been the height of hypocrisy. I'm just crossing every appendage I have that they'll be off next.

Dexter
Rudy's reaction when he heard about Dexter's father's death seemed off. For half the episode I kept thinking that Rudy must have killed him, but then I remembered the look of surprise(?) on his face that wasn't intended for anyone but the audience and I discarded the idea. Of course, as soon as the neighbor lady mentioned the cable guy I knew.

I'm not sure how happy I am about Dexter starting to doubt Harry. I think this storyline might have been better in the second season, because having him doubt his "calling" isn't what I need right now. I suspect I'm alone in this, but I'm on the fence about Dexter (the character). I don't really like him, based solely on who he is and what he does, and I don't need him to go more dark at this point, which I'm sure is the only way for an arc like this to go.

Studio 60
I don't know, I was expecting more from this episode. I think I would have enjoyed it more if it had just been the writers holed up in the writer's room and brainstorming (intercut with the flashbacks). That's what I wanted to see, but instead it just felt all over the place and it never really came together for me.

Jordan continues to be shown to be good at her job (good!), but stupid about everything else (bad!) and no cohesiveness. Just make it gel already! Since everyone and their mother knew AP was pregnant months ago the reveal didn't come as a surprise. I'm not sure what I think about it, because her character already feels so...weak, and I don't think a pregnancy is going to help.

I did like Harry's inability to tell a joke as a running gag, though, so I guess that's something?

P.S. Is anyone else having issues with LJ? I keep getting errors.
