Summer’s Gone…Autumn rolls in

I’m a bit behind on my commenting (not that anyone but me is reading this anyway mind you!) So before launching into the new season, let’s round up the summer shows

My undoubted favourite show ended up being The Glee Project. Indeed, I had to avoid ANY entertainment websites for almost three days as I was waiting to download the finale (torrent encoders were super slow, the bastards!!!)

What was it that had me so hooked to Lindsay, Samuel and co? Well of course the Glee connection, but also I think the trials the youngsters went through really had you rooting for them. No autotune here, and the mentors and Ryan Murphy definitely had their favourites. Reading my comments back, I seem to have hated Damian – who ended up being a co-winner with Samuel. I still remain to be convinced about him as an actor, but I’ll admit, his Irish charm grew on me. Samuel – the first named winner – is less interesting to me than he was, as he just seemed not thay much beyond his looks. I grew to really appreciate Lindsay and her talent, and indeed she was the first of the finalists to appear on Glee (winning a runner up 2 episode arc). Popping up in the Glee season 3 premiere, she showed her talent – a fantastic voice. But vocal coach Nikki clearly detested her (and probably got a word in to the costume girls as her dress in the episode was horrendous and made her look fat which she so is not.) I sniggered in the Glee Project finale when Nikki was running her down to her husband and Glee music producer Adam Anders, and he nodded but commented on what a great voice she did have though.

Catching Up – The Killing ends, Summer tv??

Since the bulk of US tv shows ended in May, I’ve not had as much to watch so here’s a quick round up of what I HAVE been keeping up with.

Firstly, many MANY viewers were unhappy with the finale of AMC’s The Killing. Well, I’d been unhappy with it since about episode 2. While the first episode was great – setting up the characters and the tone, since then it has been just tediously dull! A test of whether a tv show is gripping you is whether you watch avidly or find something to fiddle with while it is on. I found I had email to check, my Farmville farm to keep an eye on, Bejewelled to play. All of which meant The Killing lost me some time back. I think the final straw was the weird episode where Linden raced around trying to find her bratty teenaged son for an hour. Oh woe, tears, rain, moody Linden and then the kid turns up at home. YAWN!!!
