Welcome to a week in review. Thankfully, it was a rather slow week, with a lot of big shows going into repeats, so I really had time to focus on some quality TV! It’s a long read, so take caution as you jump in, and be careful of spoilers if you haven’t seen something this week!
SUNDAY, November 29
THE AMAZING RACE is really starting to pick up steam as it heads towards the end. At this point, I would be surprised if Meghan and Cheyne didn’t win in the finale, but the luck that Brian and Ericka have had and Sam and Dan’s ability to stay right in the raace could be total upsets. It’s a shame that the Globetrotters took the 4 hour penalty in last week’s episode. There are only so many combinations of the letters Z, R, N, A, and F, especially knowing that it started with an F, thanks to the brother’s help. I would never have taken the 4 hour penalty, no matter how frustrating it was! Maybe if I was actually in the race, and under the pressure, I would change my mind, but I doubt it! Anyway, at this point, I don’t mind seeing any of the top three folks take the prize!
Talk about about ramping up to an amazing finale – DEXTER Season 4 has been completely on fire, am I right? So many twists and turns. With Dex figuring out the latest twist in Arthur’s seriously effed up world, that he kills 10 year old boys first, and then finishes the cycle. Creepier than creepy, if you ask me. And then there’s Christine. I have to admit, I started thinking she was up to no good right around the time she stole information from Quinn, but I never would have guessed that she had shot Deb, never! Speaking of Quinn – I am suddenly shipping Deb/Quinn and I hope that that doesn’t mean we’ll see the end of Harrington’s Quinn in the finale! I’m so over the whole Rita thing. SO over it. Part of me really thinks that Arthur will kill Dex’s family, giving him something to do in Season 5, get revenge, or go off the deep end or something genius like that. According to an interview with Jennifer Carpenter on E!, the finale will have us asking “What can’t they do next” instead of “What can they possibly do next” so that should be insane. Cannot wait to see what happens next!
Is CALIFORNICATION becoming the most depressing show on the planet? I think it is, but for some reason, this season is my favorite. Hank Moody is the most dysfunctional person in the world, yet women throw themselves at him. I’m over Kathleen Turner, I’m over Rick Springfield, and I’m interested to see what happens with Hank and Karen. I’ve heard from some friends that the finale is depressing, but that’s just par for the course, so we’ll see what happens in the next 2 eps! (more…)
