GIRLS: Video Games

Okay, so for any of you that have seen the newest episode of HBO’s Girls, I hope we’re all thinking the same thing- WTF? I am completely lost, and have been since episode 2 of season 2. I don’t know where these characters are going, how the episodes relate to one another and why am I not loving this season like I did the first!? So last week ended with Ray brooding over his miserable life with the stray dog Adam stole. This week, we head to the boonies with Hannah and Jessa. Seriously, Jessa’s family makes Honey Boo Boo look normal. Ultimately, were stuck with Hannah, her UTI, and Jess for the next 30 minutes.

Manitou

The girls arrive in Manitou (a train stop away from Poughkeepsie-Snooki’s hometown). Unfortunately for Hannah, Jessa’s dad is late as usual…Hannah needs to use the non existent restroom- but it’s okay because she has a whole lot of nature to use as her bathroom.

Hannah Peepee

At Jessa’s father’s house things get weirder when we meet Jessa’s step mom and her step brother- Frank. Hannah is a little put off by everything especially when her dad pulls up in an old car filled with old broken computers. She also doesn’t appreciate having to dry herself off with a dirty face towel. We meet Frank as Hannah and Jessa’s step mom are feeding the pet rabbit. He’s awkward as **** but Hannah has the ability to see through his awkwardness and compliments him on his folded turtle neck. Nice.

Frank

Later, the fam sit down for a nice home cooked meal- thanks rabbit! Hannah is completely grossed out which is unusual for her. We don’t really see Hannah in uncomfortable situations, she’s usually the one putting people in those awkward moments. Anyways, it’s obvious where Jessa gets her weird behavior from, her dad is a coocoo bird, he was absent her entire life, of course it’s normal for her to marry a man she’s only known for 2 weeks.

Rabbit Dinner

After dinner the girls go out for a drive with Frank and his buddy Tyler. What Hannah assumes to be a ‘sex capade’ is actually a casual drive in the boonies for Jessa. Things get a little wild in the car when Jessa covers Tyler’s eyes while he’s driving. The car almost veers off into the trees before coming to a stop. Hannah jumps out of the car, furious with the situation she’s in, she storms off into the forest. Frank follows her and they somehow hook up on the floor of the forest which turns out to be a cemetery. Ew. The sex doesn’t last for long and Hannah is left having to comfort Frank as he’s recovering from his moment. He’s really weird.

When they make their way out, Jessa is having a smoke while Tyler is throwing up in the trees. Frank goes to help him and Hannah confesses that she just had sex that lasted 8 seconds. Jessa is shocked and disgusted that she would even sleep with Frank. Hannah is completely confused at the situation, she assumed they were on a sex capade and was trying to keep the ‘continuity’. Ultimately, she was disgusted with herself.

The next morning Jessa has a heart to heart with her father, we get to see a side of Jessa we’ve never seen. She shows all of her vulnerabilities, her scars, the pain she’s had to go through without a normal father.

Hannah has a confrontation with Frank inside the house. She asks him if that was his first time having sex, he tries to cover it up and says it was his ‘second’. She asks him who was the first girl he slept with?

Later, the girls decide to go grocery shopping. Jessa’s dad says he can’t be seen in the parking lot because he’s fighting with the store owner. He promises to loop around and pick them up in 20 minutes. The girls finish their shopping but her dad doesn’t show up. Jessa isn’t surprised, saying he always does this. On their long walk home, holding their heavy grocery bags, it seems like Jessa has a quiet revelation. Back at the house Hannah is in the bathroom complaining about her UTI…she comes back into the bedroom to find a note from Jessa. So where did she go? Why did she leave? Is she behaving like her father because she ultimately knows she’s just like him?

note

Hannah finds herself back at the train station. She calls her parents and tells them how much she loves them. They are going through Hannah’s things because they’re going to visit her in a few days. They’re crazy- but she loves them.

Moral of the story love your parents? I mean at this point I have no idea what that episode was supposed to teach us. Don’t sleep with a guy in a cemetery who doesn’t use an iPod?

The Playboy Club: Shut Down.

I’m really sad to report that NBC’s new prime-time series is being cancelled with only 3 episodes into the season. It actually comes as a shock, I actually liked the show, with its 1960s charm and underlying mafia theme. The fact that ABC’s Charlie’s Angels is still on air…and Playboy Club gets cancelled after 3 episodes is really disappointing.

Hugh Heffner had some thoughts about the shows cancellation- and quite frankly I agree with him! Speaking out on Twitter after the anticipated cancellation, Heffner tweeted, “It should have been on cable, aimed at a more adult audience.” In my opinion, the Playboy Club should have been picked up on a cable network like HBO or Showtime. Obviously, network tv can’t show what really happened in those clubs. If HBO were to pick up this show…they would be able to show the real down and dirty.Also, there would have been a better chance to get some hotshot director working the pilot (like Boardwalk Empire)

Oh well. In other news, don’t forge to watch Vampire Diaries tonight!!

Boardwalk Empire: New Season!!

The much anticipated television series is back for a second season. HBO brought us this fantastic series last year, set in Atlantic City,New Jersey during the Prohibition era.

Words cannot explain how genius this show is, I love everything about it…especially the time warp that sends us back into an era of desperation,politics,and murder. The original series premiere had a ton of buzz around it, especially because it broke records for being the most expensive pilot episode produced in television history. It was directed by Martin Scorsese and cost $18 million dollars! Wow!! It’s no wonder that Boardwalk Empire was picked up for the second season…the day after the pilot aired!!

Tune in to HBO on September 25th 2011 for the Season Premiere.

Here’s a sneak peek…just one of the many trailers.

Entourage Finale!!!

Ahh! Last night was the second to last episode of the Entourage Final Season! In my opinion, the season started off slow and lacked interesting content, but it just keeps getting better and better. I’m really sad to watch this amazing show have its final episode, but I really can’t wait to see how it all finishes. Although they’re making an Entourage movie, I don’t think it will ever be the same. Having said that, last night’s episode was AMAZING…I’ve been waiting for this kind of episode all season. A lot of things went down…and if you hate spoilers then you should stop reading…

I never thought I would love Ari the way I love him right now…after reuniting with his ex Dana, he admits to her that he is still in love with his wife, she tells him to fight for her…and obviously Ari will. So cute!

After Vince’s interview with Sophia Leer goes sour, he tries to win her over, and after that failed, he decided to make her a little film…She watches…she likes…she agrees to a date with Vince, before she heads back to England. Vince is ecstatic…she could be the one.

In the meantime, Turtle struggles to find more money for his restaraunt idea ‘Don Pepe’s’. Most of his original investors bail on him, and to make matters worse he finds out that Avion Tequila just went public and made a ton of money. Too bad for him since he sold all of his stock…including Vince’s. Little does he know, Vince never sold his shares, and bought out Turtle’s…which means Turtle just earned $4million. Can you say thanks Vince!?

And last but not least,after Eric finds out Sloan was having lunch with that douchebag Johnny Galecki…he confronts them and acts like a ‘you know what’ towards Sloan. He follows her home, and she confesses that she was never interested in Johnny…Eric admits he’s still in love with her and wants to get back together…Sloan announces she’s pregnant!!! (with Eric’s baby)but is still furious with him…and still plans to leave for NYC. Waah! Why can’t they just be together??

At this point in their relationship, nothing else will bring them together, I had a feeling in the beginning that this might be a possibility, and it might mean the end of Eric in Hollywood, with him leaving for NYC with Sloan.

Check out my video between Sloan and Eric.
