I really liked last Tuesday's episode, the one
on the 18th. It was all girls. Not a single man to be seen in the
whole episode. Not even as extras. Greenlee even said at the
beginning of the episode, "Who needs men? Today it's just us girls."
I was pretty impressed by that small touch. Especially since they
didn't advertise it, so it was only noticeable if you were really
Erica is just shameless. She meets Aidan, who mentions that he know
about architecture, and instantly wants to hire him, references be
damned. Lucky for her, Chris thought of that later.
Was that a shout-out last Tuesday with Erica's conversation with
Greenlee? Where she says, "That's right Greenlee. It's. All. About.
Me." Everybody's always saying how self-centered Erica is.
Let's talk about the catfight. Oh, was that ever fun to watch. ATWT
also had one that week. Happy Birthday to me. Okay, my birthday
isn't for another month. But I'm typing this on my new laptop which
was an early present, so I'll consider the catfights one as well. My
aunt was a bit scornful of the catfight scenes since she's seen many
a barfight in her day and she claims it was pretty tame. But she
grudgingly admits that it WAS entertaining. I'll say. From Kendall
hurling grapes and both she and Greenlee hurling insults, not to
mention the unbelievable sight of Kendall beating Greenlee on the
butt with a bouquet, I could NOT stop laughing.
Plus, there was the follow-up scene of Kendall and Greenlee's
almost-fight in the park that was broken up by Ryan and Leo. The
guys exchange pleasantries while simultaneously holding back their
struggling women and basically hauling them around like sacks of
potatoes. What can I say? I'm easily amused.
I'm trying my hardest to care about the Adam/Liza/Mia "triangle"
that Adam is trying to fixate into Liza's head, but I can't. The
Adam-gaslighting-his-wife storyline has been done to death.
Ugh...Roger. I can imagine how disgusted Simone is with herself to
have slept with this man now that he's shown his true colors. I'm
surprised she didn't immediately jump into a scalding shower and
Let's make a list of the PV women who desperately need to acquire a
backbone. Liza, Mia, Simone. They should talk to Tara on "Buffy" and
ask her where she picked hers up at. Oh right, they can't. She's
been killed off.
I was thinking of making a list of characters who needed to pick up
a brain as well, but that would have consisted of practically
everybody. That's sad.
Kendall has an interesting plan. Seduce Erica's new handyman for the
key to the penthouse. Sounds like rough work. After seeing Aidan all
shirtless and sweaty, I'D volunteer in a heartbeat. Typical of
Kendall, her logic is different from Earth logic. She actually
thinks that flirting with Aidan behind Ryan's back is going to
somehow yield success. We ALL know where this is going.
I liked Anna and Maggie's pre-prom scenes. Bianca's and Erica's left
me cold. As for the prom? I'll just say this: of all the teen
stories kicking off this summer, AMC's is the most boring to me so
far. We've got Bianca and Maggie "dating" and JR with a prom date
we've never seen before, EVER. Yawn. They're not going to make us
watch the whole prom, are they?
Trey capped off the week with a suit (yet again, does this boy have
ANY other type clothes) that he wore with a light blue shirt and a
GREEN tie. *suppresses dry-heave*
Roger "enchanted" us with several ascot-outfits. Note to Roger: this
is the year 2002 not 1972.
And Kendall. Was there ever any doubt? Let's see, she didn't have a
good shirt for two whole weeks. And she was on every day. I believe
she sported two, yes TWO, shirts with floral prints. The pink shirt
with the bow-print made a reappearance. I cheered when she wore her
fabulous leather pants, but they were accompanied with a shirt that
looked like one, giant tomato stain. The last one of the week she
wore in her Aidan "seduction" scene. It was jeans and a
multi-colored sweater-vest shirt thingie. Trust me. It was hideous.
And why Kendall would change OUT of leather pants to seduce someone
is anybody's guess.
