Prison Break


OMG, they just killed Veronica! *squeeeeeee!*

That's so awesome. Of course, she was epically moronic and shortsighted until the end. How could she NOT think calls were being monitored? Ahh, Social Darwinism at its finest. Again, I say YAAAAAY! And it gave us Lincoln!Angst so that's always a good thing.

I was pretty ho-hum on this ep until then. William Fichtner is very intriguing but I'm just not as invested in this as I used to be. (See? No PB icons.) Once again, Michael is just the nicest guy EVER by providing clothes for everyone, even if he snarks while he does it. I was saving old PB eps from TiVo to tape today to make room for new eps and remember when he framed Haywire(?) by roughing himself up? I'd like to see more of *that* Michael, instead of Mr. Helpful.

Man, I just hope Veronica's really dead! And where the hell is LJ? Is he even on this show anymore?

Wait -- Previews: Operation LJ next week! But dammit, Tweener's back too. *sigh*



Verdict

Overall verdict: I'm intrigued. So far, mostly so good. The cultish storyline could end up being lame, but we'll see.

"Starring Gale Harold" *squee* Sadly, he's fully dressed (unlike the boxer-brief-wearing TV cameraman!) Nice final exchange between Gale and "Wade Cummings."

And look, it's ... Ming-Na! With a bitchin' new do.

Rebecca Gayheart finally has something to add to her résumé besides Noxzema commercials, Brett Ratner girlfriend and runner-over-of-small-boys -- harpy reporter. Yeesh. She looks 45 and she just turned 35!

Ahh, the Biltmore. I've been there several times. Great bar to have drinks. (And it's where the Black Dahlia was last seen, I believe.) Wait, this is supposed to be in Georgia. There is a Biltmore hotel there, although it looks like they used the one in L.A

That's what I said. But I guess she just is that stupid. Apparently my parents were watching it downstairs so my dad was like, "Why did they kill Robin?" And I had to explain the whole government conspiracy thing and he was like, "But she's not dead." and I said, "She got shot in the head." and he said, "It bounced off." and I said, "Yes Dad, she has a kevlar head." Then again, that's a lot more amusing if you know my dad.

Well, she and Nick were soulmates then, in their stupidity. But I did like Nick and was sorry he got blown away.

Veronica had her moments, here and there, but overall, just literally too stupid to live!

Hee, that is funny, even without knowing your dad!

Oh, I'm all about the Lincoln too! ;) (Wentworth is fine, he just doesn't melt my butter, you know?) I might have to bring a Linc icon back. And maybe an LJ because I love him as well. My fave TV emo!teen! But he's good such good reasons to be emo!

I was reading my friends, friends pages... hope you don't mind a random comment from a complete stranger.

Yay someone else who is actually happy she's dead!

Man, I just hope Veronica's really dead!

I think it's safe to say she's dead. If they had stopped with just shooting her in the brain I'm not sure it would have done much damage, but since they went the extra mile and shot her a few more times in the chest for good measure (plus the fact they carried her out in 3 trash bags) I think it's safe to assume she's gone for good.

"Starring Gale Harold" *squee* Sadly, he's fully dressed (unlike the boxer-brief-wearing TV cameraman!)

You could always rent episodes of Queer as Folk to see Gale undressed. I bet he was mostly undressed at least 50% of the time on that show.

Hey, hey! Don't forget memorable appearances on Dead Like Me as that chick who got written off half way through the season. Or the blind girl Christian slept with a couple times on Nip/Tuck. Or fabulous blockbusters like Jawbreaker and Urban Legend. ;)

Hi there! ;)

I think a few friends of mine might have felt mild dismay that they popped Veronica, but seriously, such a dimwitted character! I don't think anyone will miss her. And you're right, a bullet or two is potentially survivable, but being disposed of in multiple trash bags is a little less easy to bounce back from!

I have seen a few eps of QAF, but not all. I should remedy that, shouldn't I?

Heh, I haven't caught those five Rebecca Gayheart performances. She's looking pretty haggard here, isn't she?

You should most definately remedy that.

Save yourself the money and the precious time... you'll thank me later. ;)

Previews?!!! *flails* Haven't seen previews yet...Must go find.

And yay for Veronica being dead (REAL dead; no way can she return after being shot in her freakin head!!), she served her purpose and I'm just so glad that I don't have to watch her doing that lip thing again...

And oh, my poor Sara! *pets* Michael has a plan to make it all better, he DID care! Oh, the angst - it calls to me.

Okay. I'm gonna rewatch now and then I'm gonna post a useless review full of squee and William Fichtner love! *forgive her, she has only slept 4 hours tonight*

I was not a fan of Robin Tunney in this show. Partly poorly written character, partly me distracted by some very unflattering makeup and hair! And the acting -- eh. So I won't miss her!

Since Sara is out of a job (but not out of trouble?) she might be free to hook up with Michael. Who knows? Worked for Rene Russo in The Thomas Crown Affair.

I don't find William Fichtner hot, per se, but he does bring the intensity! ;) I think he's a great addition, so far.

I know that twist was meant to be shocking (or wait, maybe not), but I laughed. Then I briefly wondered if I was going to hell, shrugged, and resumed laughing.

Ha! I don't know anyone who liked her, just maybe a few people who could stomach her better than others. She really was one of the dumbest people on TV. A pretty thankless role. I wonder if she asked to be let go!

I think I did about a ten minute dance when they killed off Veronica. She was the only reason why I couldn't watch this show....hopefully there won't be any flashbacks with her in it, but I think that's too much to ask for. And yes! Finally some LJ action! And for some reason, he looks good in his jailbird outfit. Nice!

I have to say though that every time William Fichtner was onscreen, I kept picturing him in his leopard printed underwear from the movie Go. I don't think that's what the producers had in mind when they cast him as a FBI agent, eh? LOL!

LOL. *au revoir Veronica!*

This gives me hope that Lost will finally bump off its resident female baggage as well. *crosses fingers*

Damn, I'll be upset if they get rid of LJ! I need my father/son emo angst! I'm really more about that than anything else on this show. Maybe that's why those last few eps of S1 sucked so hard! No LJ! Waaaaay too much tweener.

Ha! I picture Wm. Fichtner as the evil alien cop of Invasion. I'd nearly forgotten about that scene in Go!

Mostly, I only care that Veronica is dead because of the OMGWTFBBQ!!! nature of it, and the effect that it will have on Lincoln. I really don't see him being willing to be dragged off to Panama now. He's going to want blood.

LJ is back next week, for sure, though I don't know if he's going to be in the season beyond that (ie, I don't know if they're going to kill him or not, since anything is possible at this point).

I fully expect Michael to ditch everyone before too many more episodes go by, since that's what he was trying to do last night to even Sucre. I think he's going to be the one obsessed with family, while Lincoln is the one burning to get his vigilante on.

*caves and snags some new PB icons*

I didn't really hate Veronica that much, but the way she was written -- she was just literally too stupid to live. Now she and Nick can get it on in the afterlife.

I would love to see Enraged!Vengeful!Linc. I need *someone* to be a badass on this show since it ain't ever gonna be Michael. I think that's why I'm not as gung-ho about him. He's just a little too cool for my tastes.

And I'd love to see LJ stay in the game! *crosses fingers*

How sad is it that, knowing Veronica is dead, I can actually watch the show now?
Heee.
