1. I’m so glad others are miffed about this season of TVD. I loved this show so much during the first three season, but I’ve had enough now. The characters have become utterly unrecognizable to me and the plot (like you said) so convoluted. I can’t understand why they would consider a Klaus spin-off series. Boo to the whole thing.

    I haven’t watched Scandal yet, but will absolutely be doing so at some point. It’s on Netflix so I’m not sure what I’m waiting for!

    As for Downton, maybe my favorite show of the moment – so much soapy goodness. I loved reading your comments knowing all the things you haven’t learned yet. You are definitely in for a treat!!

    • I have a theory that tv shows get three good years, and then the fourth year is noticeably wtf, and by the fifth year they have lost half their original audience. I LOVED Bones, and that show was destroyed. I think I replaced it with TVD and now they are on that same road to hell. They have always burned through story lines incredibly fast, but I don’t even know what’s going on now. I am two steps away from not keeping up, but I am trying to enjoy Rebekah now that she is unstaked, and I would like to see a teeny bit of happy Damon and Elena. I’m watching for moments, cause I have no idea about this vampire hunter tattoo thing. I thought before break they said they didn’t even need it anymore. Am I crazy?

      Scandal is ridiculous, right out of the box. And everything mostly works out for them in a non-sensical way, but I love it. I guess if you must make no sense, just go for it from the beginning.

      Downton is crazy! I can’t believe that Turk died like that. Shocking! And I’m still wondering just exactly what he knew how to do so they could be all intimate and worry free back in the day. I have ideas, but they weren’t clear. I thought she had changed her mind and just knocked him over the head with something.

  2. Tyler could be compelled by Rebekah because she is an original and can compel other vampires, the same reason Caroline, Elena, and Stefan all had to do what she said. The show is definitely ridiculous and Stefan was so gross and the ending and the whole sire thing between Damon and Elena is gross and pretty much every character has been sacrificed in the name of the stupid triangle which is no longer deliciously angsty but just annoying and also kind of disgusting.

    So yeah lol TVD is terrible now.

    I liked the first season of Scandal but this season has burned through story so quickly and what did you say, “why do they have to strain credulity to the max?” lol yes this exactly.

      • lulz I have no idea I think this show changes its mythology every episode. but it’s true that like….Klaus should never have any conflict bc he should ALWAYS be compel everyone to do what he wants!

        • It does! It makes no sense. I don’t even bother to try to track the inconsistencies. I swear last time they were all we don’t need the vampire map and this week Jeremy has to kill vampires. And why would Tyler bother breaking a sire bond if Klaus or Rebekah or any other originals can just compel him to turn? Big waste of time and pain. I also could have sworn Rebekah said no “vamp walking” away from Tyler, yet they all ran for their lives after he turned. It is complete WTF.

  3. I watch Scandal and Downton. I agree, Scandal has gone way over the top, hope they reign it back in before it gets totally out of control. Love, love Downton. It is one show that I absolutely love my HD big screen TV – the costumes are beautiful.

    • I know! Scandal gets a lot if slack from me because it started out setting the bar for ridiculous. I mean you knew from jump that you were going to be suspending major amounts of disbelief and basically loving it. But that Huck thing was just crazy. They obviously just wanted him involved in that mess because it made no sense.

      Since you said that about the costumes I have been paying more attention, and there are really gorgeous creations on screen. Thanks for the tip.

  4. I JUST – five minutes ago – turned on Season 1 Ep 1 of Downton Abbey. The hype is just too big to ignore. Glad you’re as behind as I am.

    • I know! This is starting a series soon for me. It’s usually done by the time I start watching. Fringe just went off the air and I hear good things about that, I will probably start watching now.
