Breaking In~ Crazy Old Lady

In Take 2: Film/TV Reviews on 14 April 2011 at 2:01 am

       Soooooo, I happened upon the pilot for this show while watching Hulu…. the Black dude on here… will figure out his name shortly… is friggin hilarious. He said something about his costume ( Star Wars, I think) and said that he couldn’t dress that way because he was black. And his comback? Well, “Obama” lmao! I about fell out of my seat at this secret location that some may call… well, you know where I was…lmao! Check it out in the video below!~

       With that short introduction out of the way. I had to watch it, it wouldn’t have been right for me to be so enticed and not watch its premiere episode on Fox. And we all know how much I am not really a fan of FAUX,per say…but they keep bringing me back with these great shows. And I know, you are use to the afro-centric shows, well damn it….broaden your horizon.

Take 2 in 5, 4, 3, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2 #5FingerDiscount

        Melanie Garcia (surveillance), Cameron Price ( hacker), Josh Armstrong (master of disguise), & Cash (gadget guy)….they comprise the entire Contra Security team. Now, you have to know the background to this. Cameron was attending college when Josh posed as a fellow classmate who wanted to get his grades changed in order to graduate from college. Cameron gave him the passcode to hack into the teachers system….and the rest, as they say, is history. So, Christian ( who’s character’s name I currently do not know) broke into his dorm room, called him out and offered him a job. Contra Security gets hired by wealthy companies to break into their businesses for them so that they can understand what security measures they need to improve upon or to claim insurance. Nice job to have, right? And I got all of this from the pilot.

        And judging by this first scene, we are far BEYOND the pilot. I mean, so much went on that you will have to YouTube it yourself or get a Hulu account; never leave home without them. lol.

        Cameron has been made a team leader to rob a few old ladies. I am sooooo praying that this show doesn’t get cliché or unbelievable. I reaaaaaaally wanted to love this show but the first couple of scenes are driving me crazy. Christian doesn’t even look the same. And Melanie’s boyfriend, Dutch, yucky! But okay. I have been accused of complaining so much lately that I will try to contain myself, even though I am watching this at 1:20am so it can be posted byt the time the rest of the world wakes up. Oh sure, I just finished hosting a poetry show and my roommate is randomly walking around the house and freaking me out because she should be asleep…. and this Old Navy commercial is creeping me out with all this singing & dancing….but you dont care. *Fast Forward*

        LMAO!!! Cash just taught me something. He said that actually it is Panino and not Panini; panini is plural. So Cameron rebuttals with… so ” that’s why you dont get any vagino” lmao! Classic comedy…or I am drunk and sleepy, either way I laughed. But I need to research that… brb.

        Well I be John Brown…. he is telling the truth. So the next time I walk into a deli I can say, “please make me a chicken panino” and be correct. Hmmmmm. See I like Cash, and not just because he is the token black dude, or because in the picture above the harness is making his package look very appealing, but because I genuinely like his character. Especially when he can teach me something new.

        I love how Amy (Alyssa Milano) is a dentist and Cameron is attempting to date her. Wait…she is a cougar?! LMAO!!!!!!!! ROTFFLMAOLS!!! Cash found out Amy was a cougar and he said…and I quote… “Oh snap, my boy is tapping the grave! Open the coffin, no six feet!” LMAO!!! Who says that?! Ouch! I laughed so hard my jaw hurts. I think I have TMJ, and it hurts so bad but I cannot stop laughing!!!!!!! Okay, I will have to keep watching this show! Well, at least Cameron isnt trying to fawn over Melanie. Shame.

        OH YEH!!!! OZ!! I remember now, Christians character’s name is OZ.

       LMAO!!! The old woman’s house that they tried to break into just jacked them up! lmao! So this isnt Red Riding Hood’s grandmother’s house. They all just got shot in the neck straight African Jungle tribe style…lol. How do you explain to your boys that you got your ass whooped by a house? You cant renew your street cred after that…smdh, but lls.

         LMAO!! Why is Cash rocking a pirate eye patch..lmao! And Josh lost his eyebrows…lmao!

       WAIT!!!!!! Amy is Oz’s wife, and sooooooo she has been tricking Cameron to get news out of his so that he wouldnt break into her house to steal Oz’s documents. LMAO!!! Cameron told Cash and Cash covers his mouth ( because Oz can read lips) and walks away from Cameron yelling ” No, I didnt hear that. I’m clicking un-friend”. So Cameron starts to explain how he came to date Amy and Cash yells “Cover your mouth, bitch” lmao!!! Okay, maybe this is one of those things where you “had to be there” but I guarantee you that this will still be funny when you catch a rerun. Lord, I think I woke up my roommate again with my laughter. And my jaw is screaming! *rewind* “Cover your mouth, bitch!” LLS. Yep, still funny. Cash is my favorite character. But noooooo they just didnt. Melanie and Josh walk up and to show their shock they both cover their mouths in unison to say “Whaaaaat?” Priceless.

        Where did Alyssa get a booty from? Wowzers!

       But the whole fact that they broke in to Oz’s house to get a jump drive, but then he reconciled with his wife…..and so it was all for nothing.. Yeh. I dont get it. But okay. I got a few laughs out of it. So they can stay.

Sincerely,

Toya~A Family Affair

In Take 2: Film/TV Reviews on 14 April 2011 at 1:01 am

        Sooooooo, She’s Back. Toya is back and in full effect.

        The intro was too slow for me and I think that it gave away too much information for the remainder for the season. But, it is what it is.

        So, if this is Toya’s house in New Orleans, where was she staying in Atlanta when she was with Tiny? Okay, I am LOVING how Reginae is growing up, she is so beautiful. She has her mother‘s genes in her.

        LMAO!!! Reginea doing Laqueisha ( a character) has me in tears! You know! lmao. She is hilarious and I love it. I just hope that she stays the way that she is and I pray that she doesn’t turn into another Lindsay or a Bobbi Christina. I applaud Toya for the way that she has raised her thus far….well at least what we get to see. 

        But I must say that I almost dropped my laptop off my lap/bed when Casey was praying and he bust out and said “simbulings” and not siblings. lmao! They all broke out of the prayer ad started laughing. And to listen to how he was having unprotected sex and now he got a girl pregnant but the girl is getting an abortion. Wow….. I mean he should want to do better.

        But I feel a fight about to break out between Toya and Walter. Damn it I called it. Fully equipped with sending Reginae upstairs to her room ( Spoken like a responsible mother!) But I don’t know the story behind what is going on with them, but I did see last season how Toya was flyingg Anita to ATL and how Toya was flying to New Orleans and searching in people’s houses for her mother. I don’t know if that was for the camera, but I saw it. And I feel some kind of way about how Anita is sitting there and agreeing with Walter as he goes off on Toya like Toya never did anything.

        But I think that Walter is the one who looks the MOST like Anita and he has the most of Anita in him. I just dont like it when siblings start claiming a parent as if the others dont have a right to them. This “MY” mama nonsense is blowing me. But, I use to do it to my sister, so I understand where it springs from, I just dont like to see it because I saw the errors of my ways… I guess they too have to take the road to see their errors as well.

        But wow, I dont know how I feel about this first episode being so emotional. Like, I wasnt ready at all for this. I was ready to see something funny, something interesting, something….anything… but I wasnt ready to be emotional. Having their mother enter the rehab is really tugging on my heart strings.

        I dont know… I will have to see if I will continue to blog about this show…. I may very well just watch. So no promises…….But I wish the show well.

Sincerely,

Let’s Stay Together Til Finale Do Us Part

In Take 2: Film/TV Reviews on 14 April 2011 at 12:08 am

Episode 1: Or Not

Episode 2: Filing for a Divorce

Episode 3: Simon Says

Episode 4: Kill Yourself!

Episode 5: Yes, I’m Still Watching

Episode 6: Give The Game This Slot Too

Episode 7: Ummm….

Episode 8: Die from Predictability

Episode 9: And Commit Suicide

Episode 10: Not Give A Damn

Episode 11: In Hell

Episode 12: Forget We Exist

         Okay, so by now you should know that I absolutely did not care enough about this damn show to watch or even review last week’s episode. UNTIL…. I sat down tonight and saw a season finale commercial. I felt bad. I felt guilted into writing this review because I felt like I didnt suffer through this show til the very end. So…… I am writing this portion on Sunday and the new episode comes on this Tuesday and I shall review.

Take 2 in 5, 4, 3, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2 END!!!!!

        Yep…. three days after the finale finally aired… I figured I would blog to its completion. Now…. why do they have one more episode than The Game? I soooooooo would rather be preparing my tax spreadsheet for my accountant rather than watching this, but I am not a quitter.

         Ummm.. what is up with Tasha’s bushy hair? Wait… is that the second Aunt Vivian from Fresh Prince of Bel Air? Wow… did her hair grey that fast? Wooooooooow! The original Aunt Viv still looks beautiful. Wait, not saying that her replacement isnt beautiful… okay..hell I said it. You know what I meant. Moving on.

         I now feel some kind of way watching Jackée Harry now that I know she was once married to Charles Elgin…or is it Elgin Charles? I’m sooooo not excited about this episode and you cant make me *crosses arms and pouts*.

        And did Kita just call her Mrs. Judge? Okay, so her name is Jaunita Lawrence. So I guess they had to get a light skinned mother to make up for Tasha’s skin tone…lol.

        But, to be honest, Charles and Stacy’s first meeting was the BEST acting that I have seen between the two of them the entire season! Waiiiiiit! This pinstripped dres that she has on was the coolest that we have seen Stacy the whole season? Sooooo where has this cool version of Stacy gone? Okay, soooo Joyful Drake, honey….we now know that your hair looks like a 70’s blowout because you needed it to look a certain way for the old flashback buuuuut they didnt have time to straighten it for the current time? And in these flashbacks… whywas Stacy’s hair the same in EVERY scene?

        I cannot wrap my mind around Charles’ acting. Like he broadcasts what he is thinking or about to say/do…instead of playing the opposite.

        And… what was the point of putting Troy (Tasha’s ex) there if it doesnt have ANYTHING to do with this plot. I mean I see how they used Charles to get him there, but I dont see the point of him there.

        Now Stacy’s dressis ….hold the TOMMY FUCK UP!!!! I’m waiting for Tommy ( as the pastor) to say ” You may kiss your bride, DAWG” lmao!!!

        Ummmmmmmmmm….. Is Charlse singing? And is it me, or did you not notice his lisp until he started singing this song? I mean this is second runner-up to Chris Brown’s “Atten-ten”. lol. I mean, Charlse has a nice voice… but this is when they should have had someone else sing this song FOR him. I am sitting here and all I can think of is how tall must Stacy be, or what is she standing on to be only inches below Tommy?

        Waiiiiit I spoke too soon. I think that Troy is going to be more into this plotline than I first expected. I hope so, at least.  And wow… Charles locked himself in a closet somewhere. I mean, the way that he ran out was STUPID and unbelievable. He easily could have said….I left what I wanted to say in the car. But noooooo. For dramatic effect you sat here and ran out all dramatic. SMH…. You cant make me believe that. I know you tried, but it was a horrible Douche with battery acid kind of fail!

Okay…. *sigh* it even ended like ass…..smdh

Episode 11: In Hell

        Okay… so this past Tuesday….. I thought that BOTH The Game and Let’s Stay Together were having their season finales. And since I was sooooo swamped with having my diva Eboni Hogam visiting from out of town as my feature for my poetry shows, I only made it my business to review The Game’s  finale. I just didn’t care enough to stay up an extra 30 minutes to write about Let’s Stay Together and then another 30 minutes to edit and post. I figured that no one would care whether or not I wrote the blog or not. Now, today is officially SUNDAY….and I am sitting here watch The Family Crews and a commercial pops up with the Let’s Stay Together cast walking down the aisle… WTF?!!!!

     Okay… so I was guilted into writing this blog. Which means that after I write my blog on The Borgias I have to watch my DVR of Let’s Stay Together.Where they do that at?!!! I feel like I am being punished. I thought that it was over and I wouldnt have to write about it any more. But noooooooooo! It’s like the show that doesnt end. It’s like a yeast infection after Monistat 3 has been banned!! Its like the limp dick brother who keeps promising that he will put it on you!!! WHY!!!!

Take 2 in 5, 4, 3, 2, ,2, 2, 2, zzzzzzzz

It is Wednesday, April 6th, and I am just now MAKING myself watch this episode before I begin watching The Real McCoy. Sad, yet so true.

OH MY LORD!!!! I waited two fucking weeks and they FINALLY did not start in the bedroom!!!!! *pauses to go run in my back yard in just my undies* True shit. My backyard is dark as hell when you turn the light off…lol. This reminds me that I need a privacy fence. I am sooooo excited about this. Why didnt anyone call me?!!! Ashley? Jessyca?!!!! I feel betrayed that you all would forget that I was waiting all my life for this moment!!! Shame!!! See how black people do you. lls.

*Damn this steak and asparagus salad is delicious* SHit…. forgot I could fast forward through commercials….lol. *fast forward*

Damn… who is this actor who is playing Ellis Johnson? Ummm… tip of my tongue like a kinky night at a strippers club. Chris spencer?! yeh… that’s who that is. He is so funny.  But right now his jokes are corny. See, bad acting can make a great actor/comedian not funny.

Umm… Charles with his legs up in the air….didnt I mention the tip of my tongue? And his happy face is like.. no! OH!!!! COUNTESS VAUGHN!!! Lmao! She said “I feel it all up in my chest parts”!!!! LLS! I can’t stop laughing…hahahahahaha.I love her!!! I am so glad to see her back on the screen! Okay… Casting Director, you did well….this time.

I spoke too damn soon. Countess is carrying this scene by her damn self. Sad when a guest actor can make you laugh harder than the regulars.  Like, why is Ellis snorting? Was I the only one who heard this? And why must everyone check their phone with extended arms? Are they blind?

And wow…. we saw this setup a mile away. Of course they were going to bring dates to the comedy show. SMDH!!! Can you writers stop fucking broadcasting?!!!!!!!!!!!! You had 12 episodes to figure this shit out. smdh.I have had enough of bad writing, here and in bad life… please don’t make me shoot you with a thesaurus!

SMH. Kita calling Chanteuse out is horrible.  I am still over this whole situation. Wait…. Charmaine popping out the bathroom stall is weird and random. When was she suppose to know them? We’ve never seen her before today. Yep, Kim Whitley & Countess Vaughn are carrying this show.

Waiiiiiiiiiiiit! Okay, so this whole bathroom love confession …. Derwin has been there and done that. And it doesnt even seem believable. There are too many interruptions while they are trying to get a laugh. And I know DAMN WELL that she did NOT kneel and ask him to marry her. SMDH!!! If I see AIN’ bitch try that shit I swear I am quitting on love all together. And why did they walk all the way across the restaurant to exit when he came in from the same door the bathroom was on? So wouldnt his car be on the same side and Stacy would have caught a ride from Ellis? See…. I pay too close attention to detail to have them try to pull an okie doke on me. Still rushed and contrived. *sigh* But al least they didn’t start in the fucking bedroom.

Okay…. I MIGHT watch the next episode after this.. but I can’t stomach too much of this whack ass show!

Sincerely,

~*My Mother’s Daughter*~
