The Vampire Diaries Is Back!

Photo Source:
As I settled in to watch the first new epi of The Vampire Diaries' sophomore season I was reminded why this show was one of my favorite, if not my absolute favorite, last season.  Because it's freaking awesome, people! 

I was disappointed that I could not watch this epi last Thursday night at 8 (my family doesn't get the CW on this DirectTV) and had to wait until the CW posted the epi on their website so I could watch it on my computer.  It was worth the wait because the summer hiatus did not slow The Vampire Diaries down.  At all.

All last season we waited for Katherine Pierce's return and she brought it immediately.  Is she ever evil!  A nasty, bitchy, shit stirring vampire simply cannot be beat and Katherine does not disappoint.  From her attempted murder of Uncle John to threatening Bonnie to professing her (literally) undying love to Stefan while telling Damon that she never loved him and never would because it would always be Stefan . . . ouch!  For two brothers who have competed and butted heads for over 145 years, I have a feeling this will send Damon over the edge and he will get even darker (if possible!)  Without giving away a spoiler for anyone who hasn't seen it, we were definitely given a glimpse of the Damon to come last night in a scene involving Elena and Jeremy. 

And the final scene involving Katherine and Caroline?  Game on, indeed. 

If the first epi was any indication, The Vampire Diaries promises to take viewers on a season-long thrill ride.  And I can't wait.

So, viewers . . . does Stefan or Damon do it for you?  I didn't get the Damon fascination for much of last season although I was starting to understand it by the finale but I'm still rooting for Stefan.  And I did love seeing the dark and dangerous Stefan last season, even if briefly. 

Can't wait until the next episode!

20/20: The Hennis/Eastburn Case Profiled in "Witness"

Thank goodness for online television viewing because I missed this episode of 20/20 which aired a few weeks back, dealing with the seemingly improbable legal case of Tim Hennis. 

I have kept up with much of the Hennis case, involving the brutal 1985 murders of Katie Eastburn and two of her daughters, Kara and Erin.  I read the excellently written book Innocent Victims by Scott Whisnant.  I watched the well done television movie of the same name. 

I found the 20/20 segment to be very well done, presenting as much of the overwhelming amount of evidence as possible within the forty or so minutes allowed.  Particularly heartbreaking were the emotional interviews with the victims' husband and father, Gary Eastburn, and the surviving Eastburn child, Jana, who was less than two years old at the time of the murders. 

20/20 also interviewed author Scott Whisnant, who continues to hold firm to his belief that Tim Hennis is innocent and has been railroaded, as well as Hennis' former de…

Meet Melissa, the Queen Bridezilla

So I was channel surfing last night and ended up having a good two (okay, maybe three) hours of my life drained by WE's bridal bitchfest Bridezillas.  I realize the point of the show is to showcase what out of control hags some women are when planning their weddings but Miss Melissa really takes the cake. 

First, she claims to be 23 and I always find it interesting that most of these chicks look older than they claim to be.  I'd like to see a birth certificate before I agree to that.  She also claims to be in medical school, which is really funny considering (1) Melissa seems to have an awful lot of free time on her hands, to bitch, whine, complain and threaten to kill people and (2) for someone who claims to want a career saving lives, she sure talks about taking a lot of them.  (Case in point:  Melissa, concerned that she won't be happy with her wedding cake, tells the camera that if the baker screws it up, she will kill her and eat her). 

So . . . Melissa and her oh-s…

Downsized: Or How WE TV Dropped the Ball

Let me start this post off first with a disclaimer.  WE TV is not CNN.  I think we all know that.  After all, this is the station that brought us Bridezillas, the show that would happen if Jerry Springer, the Kardashians, a whole lot of alcohol and some serious bitchery were to spawn. 

However, when I first heard of Downsized, a show that premiered last summer, I wanted to give it that good old college try because the circumstances seemed especially fitting given the economic craphole this country seems to be falling into.

If you haven't heard of Downsized, the show is about a family who, having lost "everything" due to the economic downturn, finds itself having to downsize in all aspects in order to survive.  I thought the show would be helpful not only in that "we're not the only ones in this boat" way but also maybe light some creative fires for those of us who were looking for ways to conserve and save money.

Negatory!  This show is nothing like that a…
