THROWBACK SUNDAY and the curse of the no-idea-if-we’ve-been-renewed-finale.

I know that today is Thursday but for some reason I wrote Sunday. And I’m just going to leave it like that. I’m weird. I know.

Anyway, my throwback Sunday is this:

Automatic hand dryer adventures, Empire and One Big Happy (plus an update on the recaps)

Some don’t work. Some require you to do some sort of inverted, jazz hands for at least thirty seconds before they come on (at which point you’re already frustrated and about to leave and then you have to wait for another thirty seconds now that you know that it is actually working), and some are just kind of crazy. Every time I use one of the exuberant hand dryers I forget what it was like the previous time and ending reacting like this:

(Jared’s padanormous turbo charged nostril flare would probably cause the same reaction. :P)


Empire

Empire isn’t really my kind of show. I have an aversion to anything where people break out into songs, usually because I have a very bad attention span and it startles me LOL. I actually do really like the show though. Which is surprising given all the hype surrounding it! The only reason I even watched it now is because I had no internet so I was stuck with nothing to watch and I happened to have the first few episodes on hand. I might post a longer post on it later but if you’re thinking of checking it out, it’s pretty good.

One Big Happy

I know that I wrote a whole post on how terrible this show is but the following two episodes have been a lot better. It’s actually kind of funny in a quirky, offbeat kind of way. I’m still not feeling Nick Zano’s hair though. 😛

Recaps

I still haven’t watched an episode past the last one I did (the musical episode) and that won’t change for a while. At this point, I’d say there’s a 70/30 chance that I’ll do some episodes over the summer hiatus or just skip straight to the finale or something. I think this is the longest I’ve ever gone without watching the show, which is either awesome or sad, I haven’t really thought about it much, lol. I certainly don’t miss being visually and aurally assaulted by Sam’s haircut and Dean’s addiction to gravel. If all else fails, I will snark about the final *sniff but yay* season of The Mentalist (which I also can’t quite bring myself to watch just yet. Mon dieu!).

OS: One Big Happy

This show is usually one that I’d ignore but I loved Elisha Cuthbert on Happy Endings and thought that maybe she would be playing the exact same character here only with a different name, friends, show etc. Ironically enough, Nick Zano, who plays the other main character was on Happy Endings also. Unfortunately, that does not take away from the fact that this show sucks. That might be down to the fact that Kelly Brook is it. She’s sort of like a, lite version of every other topless model who ends up in things like Piranha 3D. The British jokes are predictably eye-roll worthy, along with every other joke. It literally felt like time had stopped. It’s flat. Even the laugh track (if it didn’t have one, my brain automatically provided one) seemed flat.

Plot wise, the show is about two best friends (Lizzie and Luke? I can’t even remember their names) having a baby together. Plot twist, she’s a lesbian and he’s a guy who’s never even spent the night with anyone. So naturally, he meets someone, falls in love and gets married all within the space of three days. Bigger plot twist, Lizzie turns out to be pregnant! Everything else that happened was really irrelevant to me but I’m sure we’re about to embark on a series of exciting adventures until someone at NBC cancels the show.

Somehow it ended up being sort of worse than Undateable, a show that is miraculously still on air for reasons unbeknownst to everyone. I’ll probably still watch it though and pretend that it’s an alternative universe of Happy Endings (heck, there was an episode where Elisha’s character had to pretend to be a lesbian. Totally works).
