Weekly Wrapup

On the whole, I'm glad I decided to give Grimm a second try. It's been a fun show, although I kind of chuckle at the sheer number of supernatural beasties inhabiting Portland, Oregon. I will say that at least, unlike Sunnydale, it's a major city and not a small town for the few "normal humans" to turn a blind eye to all the weird shit going on.

That said, still love Once Upon A Time, too. Nice of ABC to keep a supernatural show on for me and not cancel it halfway through a storyline. Although I do wonder about this being an open-ended American show; without some kind of payoff it's going to start really dragging. I hope they have a clear vision for an ending (happy or otherwise).

My writing blog: nightmaresaloon

It has been a week since my last post. Where did the week go? Hmmm. Let's see. More overtime, although I decided NOT to work yesterday -- two Saturdays in a row was sufficient, and it's very likely we'll have to work next Saturday. I would love to whine and wail about the idiocy of Corporate thinking, but I discovered this week I actually care a bit about my work and it's apparently making me rather cranky when I see what Corporate minds are doing to something I care about. In the meantime, overtime overtime, and at least that means I'll have a little spending money while I'm paying off Idris.

Did accomplish a few things this week; some cleaning was done and laundry was done and right now am cleaning the oven (self-cleaning technology, woot). Only a tiny bit of writing. A lot of reading, yay. Not a single stop at the gym, boo. More weight gain, another boo, although I'm trying to eat better, even if I can't exercise. (Emphasis on "trying.")

That said, I'm thinking about wings. Spicy. Buffalo. Wings. I'm peckish.

Now Fringe. I still have 19 episodes of Craig backed up. Everything else is caught up.

I sort of like Grimm too. It's not the best thing in the world but so far I'm entertained.

oops to no gym (I skivved out on my trip on Friday too but after my results I wasn't that impressed with going back with this much work to do).

Hee, picked up buffalo wings for tonight myself (since I was too lazy to make them)

The characters are good (about what I'd expect from that writing and production team), and good characters will hold me to something even if it isn't too great, and hey, the stories aren't bad, either.

Yeah, last night I sliced up boneless thighs and marinaded them in a nice tequila lime marinade, but skinless just doesn't work for a real "wing" feel -- couldn't get them crispy enough.

yeah the stories are better than half the crap I saw this year and the acting improved. About the only character I don't care much for is Juliette.

sounds tasty but yes sometimes skinless just doesn't cut it

Acting definitely improved; I'm starting to really like the cast, especially Monroe. But yeah, Juliette is sort of bland. They're getting some more development there, but the whole "keeping the secret from her" is going to get old fast. Tell her and get her involved. The rest of it is so Buffy/Angel they might as well bring the whole family in to help with the slaying. I mean, Grimming. :D

They were good, just not RIGHT.

Monroe pretty much makes it for me. Juliette is poorly developed and I agree with you, tell her or cut bait and let her go.

Also very fond of Sergeant Wu.

And they did a good enough job with Rosalee and Adalind to show they CAN do solid female characters.

yes him too

Sadly I missed a few and couldn't figure out where the hell Rosalee came from but i like her.

She's the sister of the guy who ran the Magic Box... er, herb shop, who was killed by some beasties looking for a magickal crack stuff and Nick & Hank had to find the killers. I can't remember what kind of critter she is (have to study the "Grimm Wiki" so I can keep then all straight -- the only ones I'm sure of are, of course, Blutbaden).

I may watch episodes late and in chunks of two or three or more, but I usually get all of them (I <3 my Tivo...).

ah yes, I figured out parts of that and yes, too many things to keep track of. I can remember the hexenbeast.

see it helps if i'm intelligence enough to set UP the recorder

Rosalee is Fuchsbau (like her brother).

This is very helpful.

Hee hee hee.

I think I'm 5 Craigs behind. I feel much better now. :-) And I'm really glad you're liking Grimm.

In catching up, I did watch several of this past week's, just to see what was going on CURRENTLY. I'll probably watch the Scotland ones as they air. I just fell behind one week and once you're behind it's just HARD to catch up! I think a few even fell off because once I got to 25 episodes... yeah. :P

I am. I very much enjoyed the storyline with Hank being bespelled. But I hope they don't go forever with his partner and his fiancee not knowing what's happening.
