Shuk: Hey everyone! Just me, snark-bombing this mess. Because, why not, it can't make it worse, right? [shifty eyes]
JoAnne: Who are the deluded souls who send them these messages? Their families?
kakashi: Maybe they're just making them up. There's that level of delusional and I think they're not far from it, if not already there.
bcook: Are there people still watching on Viki? Wait... do they consider US fans?!
kakashi: Next step. Don't post any updates. For at least 12 hours. That will keep everybody on their toes! If somebody really, really wants to know, they can go find out on viki.com that "Episode 5 in 5 minutes for reals this time! Love you guys!!" on your Facebook "fan" page.
JoAnne: Don't forget where, too, because when they made the 5 minute announcement, I saw it 6 minutes after that, so I went straight to Viki. Nada. Zilch, zip. After 10 minutes, I went to their website, where I got a playback error message. At that point, I knew. This is all an elaborate prank, or a psychological test, right?
kakashi: Right??? It's still not on viki as I write this. Which is about 18 hours later. But love: it conquers all.
JoAnne: Except disease, and this show is a pox upon us all.
Shuk: If I was allergic to BS, the coroner would already be body-bagging me, thanks to this show.
bcook: *muttering* Shuk took my color. Official boys before friends website officially dead btw.
Shuk: It’s like Invasion of the Body Snatchers. No, not really, because that movie has better plot, better production values, and better acting.
bcook: Quite amused by how much I don't care about anybody on this show.
Shuk: There’s no way you can induce me to rewatch the first episode, even if you offered me fuji apple sake and samgyeopsal, but I think Piper and Zoey were at least living together. Who helped spackle Zoey-1’s eye makeup for her audition?
kakashi: It came to me overnight that they are in fact talking about moving her shop. Or moving things into her shop. Also: the only point in Chloe singing is that the actress most probably wanted to show "the world" how talented she is. Only ... well.
bcook: Are they really? Coz I'm pretty sure they're talking about Zoey moving in. I laughed when New Zoey says "It's like I'm starting all over". Also the piano needs to be tuned.
Shuk: Hey, don’t make fun of my Uncle Al Fresco! He dressed up for the role! At least, he ain’t wearing the wifebeater…
bcook: Why's he talking like she just moved to LA? Why's she calling Chloe Piper? Did Piper actress leave too? (sad, I liked her). Inquiring minds want to know!! ... Actually. Not really. Mom exists?! Does Dad fall out of window?
Shuk: If they would at least let the previous line complete before jumping on their next sentence, it would sound like something better than a middle school play.
JoAnne: Apparently they've moved Chloe's shop from a sound stage to the front entry way of a store on a commercial street.
Shuk: She has twelve dresses and some street-kiosk necklaces. Will that pay for store frontage in LA? How poor is she supposed to be?
Shuk: I’m getting ready to move. I do not intend to reward the nice guys willing to help me by making them cart by butt around. If that was humor, I didn’t get it.
hey, where were they in this episode? Fired??!
Shuk: Better your brain than mine. Thanks for taking one for the team, JoAnne unni.
JoAnne: *shakes head wisely* Stockholm Syndrome!
|A close up of the necklaces|
Shuk: If they did that, I’d sent them Brain Dead Monkey necklaces as thanks.
Shuk: Is it me, or is Piper and Chloe dating invisible boyfriends supposed to up the UNGST between F3 and F3+Little Boy? Because it ain’t creasing my kimono, just saying. Although I still like Noah, our Vaguely Asian Dude.
Shuk: [sob for Liam-1 and Zoey-2. Who might have been able to do something with this…maybe]
Shuk: And most third-graders can make mac-n-cheese. Or a sandwich, it’s just meat and cheese between bread. Not rocket science. Not even paper airplane science.
Shuk: Luckily I was watching it at work during lunch; otherwise I’d be pissed at these wasted moments of my life. But I think the fine citizens of my town need to write a letter and demand recompense for my pay. And me too! For making my turkey and rice taste like this script: bitter nothing.
Shuk: An insult to cloggers everywhere.
Shuk: I want to give them a tiny props (like dime-sized) for uitilizing the much-used Throwup On Love Interest trope. It falls flatter than a BASE jumper at the Grand Canyon without a parachute. But it was an itsy bitsy effort.
kakashi: He looks like a natural cross-dresser. If he is not into it in RL, he should be
Shuk: I didn’t get it. But then, I didn’t get the whole episode, and 89.5% of the entire “production” so far. Also, she falls asleep in a messy upswept, and wakes up with fat sausage curls. But everything is covered by an Apathy field and I really don’t care.
Shuk: So, ordering soup by delivery makes six red plastic cups and numerous paper plates worth of trash? I think he had a secret punch kegger with all the other high schoolers while she slept. Either that, or they filmed it after lunch and Craft Service was just too lazy to clean up.
Shuk: Never played it. Don’t wanna either.
Shuk: Bring in the Dead Brain Monkeys. I’m going back to work.
