slightly silly: riverdale, episode twenty-nine: primary colors

sorry you guys, i fell behind on my riverdale viewing. but luckily the show gave me a mini-break to catch up. so this week's recap is three weeks old, and next week's will be the same, and then i'll be back to my one-week-old recapping schedule.

so hermoine is running for mayor. part of me feels like the show forgot the twist reveal that she's the mastermind? i mean, the lodges are providing a united front. and archie has clearly made his choice in terms of becoming part of the family. it's a quid pro quo thing he's got going on with hiram. i'm not sure it's going to end well for our all-american boy. kj apa is never going to be an actor with a lot of nuance or gravitas, he's too pretty and he lacks emotional depth. but pairing him with the lodges is actually the best thing for him. they make him interesting, the conflicts between his past life and the future they offer him is something real.


meanwhile, veronica is the face of her family at school and it's not going well. when she decides to run for student-body president, she does it the only way she knows. throwing money and promises she can't keep at the problem. it doesn't go well.


betty doesn't take the revelations about veronica too well. things have been deteriorating at home too, with chic's continued presence and the all out war that blossoms between the siblings. last week's revelation that he isn't hal's kid kind of makes sense, but you really have to wonder if the writer's actually have a mapped out story for alice cooper? her character is so inconsistently written, madchen amick is really good at sellling whatever they ask her to do, and like i'm so intrigued by her story. and i love her connection to f.p. jones. i love the like mother, like daughter vibe. but still, i'm not entirely convinced the writer's actually know where they're going with her character. 


anyway, bughead forver. amirite?

simply catching up on all things general hospital

hmmm, it's been months since i've blogged about gh. partly this is due to the fact that i fell behind while i was traveling. partly because all the outrage lapsed into disinterest when i realized i couldn't bring myself to care anymore and everything that was happening was just so trite and boring.

some days i still feel that way. and there are still whole storylines that i either hate or just fast forward through. but there are some good things too. in no particular order, here are my thoughts on the goings-on in port charles:

1. soras [and why re-casting roles works on soaps even if you do miss the original actors]:
the new, older versions of sonny's kids are turning out to be quite enjoyable. [although hilariously, cameron whom i believe is older than molly is now younger. and because cameron is so cute, i'm kind of hoping they won't fix that. we also haven't seen spencer in ages, so he may be approaching 50.] in any case, at this point we've only seen…

genre debate: urban fantasy versus epic fantasy: team epic gets their say

Team Epic: Why I Love Epic Fantasy!
Since it's my blog, I'll go first: Epic fantasies take you on quests that take you beyond the limits of what is real. The rules can be different, they are different, and everything just matters more. It's not just one life at stake, it's lives, it's a whole world, a whole way of being. Epic fantasies force you to use your imagination and take you on an adventure to places you never thought possible, but as different as everything feels, there are still things that are always real, no matter how you write it.

Erica Cameron - Island of Exiles (The Ryogan Chronicles, #1): Why do I love epic fantasy? It's a blank slate. We can erase all of our preconceived notions of society and law and even science, throwing all of that over the side of a cliff. Epic fantasy lets us push humanity well past the breaking point with ever more impossible landscapes a…

Synopsis

What do you do when you can't control your feelings for someone? When you know you shouldn't go there? Not even in your head. 

Annie has never experienced the 'spark' with a guy-the kind of instant chemistry that steals your breath and blindsides you completely. Until a night out with friends brings her face to face with the wickedly sexy and mysterious Jack. It's not just a spark that ignites between them. It's an explosion. Jack promises to consume Annie, and he fully delivers on that promise.


Overwhelmed by the intensity of their one night together, Annie slips out of their hotel room. She is certain that a man who's had such a powerful impact on her and who could bend her to his will so easily, must be dangerous. But she's already in too deep. And Jack isn't only dangerous. He is forbidden.
