Sometimes one has to get things out, and having like minded individuals to share with can be therapeutic. I believe, after watching Smash tonight, I need therapy!
Whether the show makes it to a third season or not, the writers are certainly pacing out the details of the show. Well, perhaps I'm simply impatient. I want what I want and I want it now!
I want Jimmy gone.
I want Derek and Karen together.
I want Ivy to be Marilyn.
I want Tom to be sane.
I want Julia to be happy and with her lovely chocolate man.
I want music to ring free.
I want JIMMY GONE!
See, I'm not asking for much.
Honestly, I can see why Jimmy came in - they needed someone to add a new story line and they needed to add a love relation to Karen but he's so angsty and annoying. Honestly I'm looking to see what they come up with as his past. What did he do that was so bad that he has no SSN and has changed his name. Did he murder someone? Why can't he just be honest with Karen?
Waaait it's a drama. THAT's why! Right. Draaama.
Don't get me wrong, I love drama but I hate when they're irrationally dramatic!
I also wanted to throw something at the screen when Derek's arm was draped around Ivy's waist.
Was I crazy in thinking that it looked as if it had been going on for awhile? The way they woke up and he apologized about falling asleep. Have I missed something? I thought Ivy wasn't sleeping with him. In TV show essence it was a few days. Wasn't it?
Also, why are they writing Karen so dumb? She's with a drug addicted, musically talented, has more baggage then a shopping cart hobo, and she's wondering why he's not being a perfect knight in armor? Is she really THAT in love with Jimmy? (Side note I have NEVER been so in love with someone my brain stopped functioning completely).
I love what they're doing with Kyle though. Although somehow I missed the tip that he was gay. (I am so slow)
I have to admit I loved Tom in this episode. I loved his panicked face, I loved the chaos of getting it ready but all that running around was admittedly fluff. The entire episode was fluff. Minus - definitely minus- when he read the review and found out Julia was helping with Hit List. </3 Heart broken.
Why didn't Julia tell him? I know he was busy but still - it's stupid. They're friends and Bombshell is her baby! Obviously she must have sense Tom would want to know.
Waaaait I'm sensing a theme. The writers think women have no brains!
In perfect harmony with that ideal is the dilemma of the lovey Ivy to get naked. Honestly I laughed when her dress came down the first time. I blushed, I was embarrassed for her and I laughed to the floor. However, the decision to do it again, wasn't as entertaining. I don't see it as necessary and I don't see it building up her character. I get her character being exposed in the show but ... I was kinda proud when she didn't do it the first time when given the opportunity. Pride left when she did it later on.
Love the Diva. I love how she got in there. I love how her and Karen are on the outs. Karen deserves to come off her pedastal and MAYBE she'll see how much Derek has done for her.
This episode just felt like fluff. *sigh* Naked fluff, confused fluff, angsty fluff, sarcastic fluff -
Although Karen calling derek a jealous old man has given me one hell of an idea for a fanfic. :P
