For everyone who caught last night’s episode of Dollhouse – didn’t that rock? My FACE off, even, it rocked my face off. Eliza‘s got an amazing voice, it’s so cool that she finally got to showcase it.

I’m all giddy, Joss has a show. The Whedonverse lives! Granted, Ghost was a bit disjointed by The Target was better. Stage Fright, though, I think was the best of the three aired thus far – great story, great loading of scenes, very funny without over funny-ing it up. In fact it was very Joss without being typically Joss. Much love!

Episode Rating: Stage Fright ★★★★★★★★★☆

Hooray! The Mediacom guy finally came out and fixed our cable! It only took them two weeks ( well, it was almost two weeks, only shy a few hours ) and the guy was testie with me as if the storm that tossed a huge tree branch onto the cable and knocked it off of the box? Annoyed! At least it’s fixed again, and just in time for holiday programming! I think TBS is running A Christmas Story for 24 hours on Christmas Eve, and I’m sure AMC will do the same with A Miracle on 34th Street so I can watch those ( my two favorite holiday films ) to my heart’s content.

Whee! Whee! Whee, I tell you, whee! I’ve just heard some delicious science fangirl news about how I’m a giant geek! :P

Apparently, the History Channel’s fantabulous series The Universe isn’t done for, after all! I assumed, as did many who were fans, that it would be a one-season situation, but apparently it’s coming back for a second season, and very soon! Ooh, the suspense is killing me! So much that I died! Yes, I died, as in dead – me! Two sentences ago! Now I’m a ghost who’s blogging, which is a sight to behold – aren’t you glad you stopped by? You’re seeing the first blog-by-ghost, what a read! This is a history making feat that doesn’t come cheap, and you didn’t even buy a ticket. That’ll be twenty-five cents, please.

I’m watching Mythbusters, which has got to be one of my alltime favorite television shows, and they’re busting Cola myths. such as weither or not cola will clean a penny or dissolve a tooth – I thought, for sure, that it would dissolve the tooth but it didn’t – turned it brown, but didn’t dissolve it. But it did clean the penny, very well, actually.

One of the things that surprised me the most, though, is that cola does shine chrome and it does clean up blood super fast and super well compared to plain water ( which really surprised me ), and that makes me wonder if telling people on television that blood cleans up blood is such a really good idea, lol.

You know what? Screw the Science Channel. Screw them for having all these neat shows and me not being able to afford their services! They want me to murder them, or more realistically, they want me to shell out money I don’t have to subscribe to their stupid science and stupid cool shows that they know I want to see, so until My Royal Shallowness can afford their stupid subscription payments I’ll only be living a half life, not knowing what goes on beyond Pluto or before we ruled the planet. And yes, I’d like to see Giant Moa bones, don’t you think I want to see Giant Moa bones? Of course I want to see Giant Moa bones, thank you. But do they ask me? Do they offer me their knowledge in exchange for nothing, just the way I like it? No, no, of course not. Don’t make it easy for Faith, she has History Channel and Discovery, she’ll be fine! Science Channel, you will RUE the DAY!

I’ve decided I hate name dropping films. No matter how much I love the subject of a film, or a television show, their shark jump is almost always a trip back in time, or for period films/shows, being set in the past, because this leaves the path clear for period name dropping.

If you’re not familiar with period name dropping, it’s when anything set in the past,- weither it be flashback, time travel, or just the show’s time period -, paves the way for someone from the cast to meet a historical or legendary figure and somehow be the single person to shape their destiny. There were a lot of good shows that employed this technique, like The Adventures of Brisco County Jr., which starred the incomparible Bruce Campbell and John Asten, as well as a slew of other great actors. Another show this horrible flaw spread to was Xena, then Star Trek ( especially TNG ) and The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles.

It drives me absolutely up the wall that some writer would have the balls to have Xena point Mary and Joseph on their way, Sam Beckett nearly blow up Hitler, or have Henry Jones Jr.’s governess take him and new friend Norman Rockwell out to a puppet show, an act that will eventually lead to Norman making a sketching that Picasso signs and Indie fraudulently sells. Do we see a pattern? Indeed, the only time I’ve ever seen this sort of integration happen where it didn’t royally eat my lunch was in The Last Crusade, when Hitler took Henry Sr.’s diary out of Indie’s hand in a horrible moment of tension and then signs it with his autograph – which was so spot on, it may as well have really happened.

Koma review, as I promised!

Koma is a film about a Hong Kong solcialite who attends a wedding in a hotel where she accidentally, and quite drunkenly, stumbles into a hotel room to find a helpless victem of kidney theft. This hits fairly close to home, because said socialite is suffering from kidney failure herself.

Because she’d seen someone suspicious walking around in the hallway before stumbling upon the victem, she’s brought in for questioning and to pick the woman out of a police line-up, which is when she finds out how really dangerous this woman is ( Kar Yan Lam of Inner Senses fame ).

Saying anything else will give too much away, so you need to rent it for yourself!

This movie is insanely suspense-y and often times very scary. It has a very “Cello” or “Inner Senses” feel to it, even though it’s a drama, not so much a horror film.

It’s easily worth the rent, and as far as suspense thriller’s go, I’d say it’s got potential for 4 out of 5 stars, though because this film runs in a vien of film that I already enjoy, I rated it an even 5. Do not ignore my viens!
