L.A. Basketball Wives S2:E1~ Delusions of Grandeur

In Take 2: Film/TV Reviews on 17 September 2012 at 9:01 pm

 Basketball Wives of L.A. Season 2

Season 1 Recap: Finale aka Everybody Hates Jackie

Episode 1: Jackie aka Victim

Episode 2: Delusions of Grandeur 

I need therapy just trying to figure out where Jackie’s delusions come from. But I guess I will watch this episode.

Take 2 in 5, 4, 3, 2, 2, 2, 2, #BasketballsLostAngels !

Is it just me or does Brooke not photograph well in the face? I have yet to see a pic where her face trumps her ass. I keep singing Nelly’s “it must be your ass cause it aint your face” every time I see her. I’m not hating, her body is BANGING an beautiful… and when she is sitting down and talking, her eyebrows don’t bother me as much as I thought they would…. it is just when she photographs.

I love how honest Gloria is being towards Jackie. Sad thing is, Jackie is not taking any of this in. I wish there was commentary bubbles to Jackie’s inner monologue like the first season of Girlfriends. And Laura’s face when she said ” Well, you can’t come here to lie” is hilarious! And, yes, Jackie is fucking up this apology. Just keep it short.  BWHAHAHAAHH! Laura said “don’t come in here with some shit that you wrote it out, thought about, went to Google and looked up ‘how do you apologize’”….lls! And the way that Gloria put Jackie out of the party is CLASSIC! When Jackie walked out Gloria  said “now lock the door”.

Brooke is dating Vernon Maclin, and she looks like a hobbit walking next to his tall ass. Lol. And she says that they have only been dating for about a few months. I think she said that they met 7 months ago. She said that she loves that he is not around 24/7 because it keeps the excitement going and helps her build the excitement of seeing him. They appear to make a cute couple. Read the rest of this entry »

Season 1 Recap: Finale aka Everybody Hates Jackie

Episode 1: Jackie aka Victim

So THEY ARE BACK!!!! I love it!

Take 2 in 5, 4, 3, 2, 2, 2, 2, #BasketballsLostAngels !

Okay, am I the only one who saw Laura’s outfit in the intro? It looked hot but at the same time it looks photo shopped! Lol.

Now, what does Doug have on in the kitchen/ Those stripped pants match in color but they don’t go with that shirt. Lol. I am glad that Doug is able to help Jackie stay calm. I am glad that their daughter is taking the road to being on her own. She can get away from Jackie’s control.

Laura met up with Gloria for lunch. So apparently she is back in the L.A. area for the summer. Apparently her Orlando move has worked out and her relationship with her boo is working well.  Gloria and Matt were apart for 8 months and now they are back together and supposedly stronger. And Gloria says that she wants to do a cookbook and she is inviting everyone over, except Jackie, to try out the dishes that she is considering.  Read the rest of this entry »

Okay, so I missed last week and need to watch it on Hulu following this tomorrow… but for now I will pretend like I know what is going on.

Yikes…. Rachel’s senses are grossing me out! I would never eat if I could hear people eating that loudly. I hate smacking. Awww, John tried to touch her and she pulled her hand back.

I love Gary’s metaphor! The brain stays in the head and the office is the head. Lol. And now Gary wants to be appeased if he has to go on the trip with everyone to figure out the use of the machine. And Nina is back? Yeh… I am missing an episode. Read the rest of this entry »

I am catching up…. My apologies!

Bill, don’t fuss at your wife. She is just trying to make sure that you live another day, man! Gary’s mother looks like she is going to have a nervous breakdown any minute. Now, what in the world is up with Gary and all of that screaming in the morning? Oh, Dr. Rosen says that his screaming is a release or coping mechanism. Wow! I need to do that but my roommate would put me out. Lol.

Rachel is walking into the office and she can smell Old Spice halfway down the hall. John Bennett is in the office and apparently he is Dr. Rosen’s choice for lead tactical. And somewhere between the sexual tension between Rachel and John and her processing his Old Spice, Dr. Rosen comes in and tells them that an Alpha has been killed.

Jack Duffy was killed; he was one of the escapees from Binghampton. She can form electricity with his hands. He has burns all over his face and hands.  Rachel lifted a phone number off of Jack’s hand. The flashback scene seems like someone spit in his face and then pushed him off of a building. What a way to die. Read the rest of this entry »

If I havent mentioned before….this is my new favorite Television show! It never disappoints!

WOWZERS! The opening is bananas. I am trying to figure out if his power is to freeze everyone still or to make water fall rather dramatically. OH SNAP!!! He can slow down time and then speed up again like the vampires on True Blood! HILARIOUS the way he snatched that doctor up from the table before his wife even completed a full chew rotation of whatever it is that she was eating.

Okay, so this love scene with Cameron and this mystery woman better have a purpose, because rather than focus on the erotic nature of the event, I keep noticing how many times Cameron keeps pulling the covers over the female actress to keep her in as modest of a light as he can. #FAIL.  And what is up with this weird power in her hands? Enhancement, maybe?

WAIT!!! That’s Rosen’s daughter? FREAK! Isn’t Parrish pimping her out? Now the power emits from her hands make sense. Read the rest of this entry »

Oh how I have missed them.

Knowing who you are in 5, 4, 3, 2, #ALPHAS

Wow! They put Dr. Rosen in a mental hospital? See, the government really wants to keep him quiet. And his therapist, Natalie, thinks that he is making up the ALPHA project.  So, is an Alpha going to come and help him break out of this place? He has been there for 8 months? Dang! Okay, we need an Alpha with the ability to shape-shift into Dr. Rosen so that he can switch and get out.

Okay, Bill and Ryan are in a grocery store waiting for an Alpha to show up and create some kind of drama. In comes this crazy lady in the back shortening the electricity and another man comes down the aisle with guns announcing this is a robbery. Now, surprise, surprise…..Bill isn’t the ONLY Alpha with the ability to gain strength from adrenaline, the nut with the gun can too. And some dude with the ability to make a sound that hurts everyone comes in over the intercom and cripples the alpha government tactical team. I swear the guy who makes the noise is the Asian dude from GLEE, but I am not sure. Read the rest of this entry »

BET Awards 2012 & Pre-Show

In Take 2: Film/TV Reviews on 1 July 2012 at 5:58 pm

I know, I know, I know. You have been wondering where I have been. Well, as a full-time poet I have been on the road. So blogging every night is not as ideal as it was when I was working a regular 9-5. But, I couldn’t let the BET Awards 2012 pass by without me blogging play-by-play for you.  I will be updating LIVE!!!!! So tell your friends…..call your cousins, hell, yell it to your mama. Tonight is going to get real, and I will give my honest opinion! Let’s go!

I apologize for spelling and grammar errors in advance…. there is no time to proof before I update LIVE! lol.


 Okay… so I am trying to figure out who this white boy is that just opened up the Pre-Show. I mean, I know he was in the cypher last year but I can’t remember his name. but he is thumping extremely hard. Okay, he has a tad bit of that Twista flare. I’m gonna have to add this to my MP3 player to thump this in my car. Wait, I guess the HUGE MGK flashing on the columns behind him would imply that he is MGK. And then the song says Steve-O…. I’m confused as shit. I think I just told y’all my age. So he sings this song?  Sooooo he’s the Dirty South Version of Emeniem? I am loving his live performance flow… yeh… this needs to get added and QUICK!!!

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME WHO THIS RACHET FEMALE IS FEELING ON THIS DUDE’S CHEST. WAIT…. DID HE JUST CLIMB UP ON THE SCREEN AND DO THE DOUGIE?!!!!!!!!!!!!! I bet you that the liability crew is in the back screaming for him to get his ass down. See, we are not used to people doing shit like that. But this is what happens when you invite white folks to black events. lol.

Did French Montana come out too? Okay, I don’t have this in my playlist… but I am slipping. lol. What, do Drita? lol. I wonder if the censor guy will get fired this year… because I have already heard a few slip throughs. lol.

Ummm… I am trying my hardest to figure out Rocsi’s dress. It is too light. It matches her skin but doesn’t look as if she is naked, but it just isn’t doing it for me. And the black shirt with the black collar on a white tux jacket is messing with my optical judgement on Terrance. Now I like the SHAPE and cut of Rocsi’s dress… just not the color. But I digress.

The Borgias S2~ Consequences of Choices

Recap of Season 1: El Fin

Episode 1: Consequences of Choices

LMAO!!! King Charles called Cardinal Rovere a clown. Well put!

If this is your first time watching The Borgias….then shame on you!!!! If you wish to refresh your memory of what has occurred last season then check out my blogs HERE.

Now, for the rest of us….. bow to the Borgia Pope

Take 2 in 5, 4, 3, 2, 2, 2, 2, #CrimeMurderFamilyAmen !

Whoever is in charge of the intro footage should be crowned by the Queen herself! It is riveting, captivating and downright despicably intriguing!

The scene starts off with an altar boy attempting to poison the altar communion. In comes Cardinal Rovere, the cardinal wipes the floor of the evidence and continues with the communion ceremony.. And as he goes through the people of the church he comes across Cesare amongst them. HOW CLEVER!!!! Cesare goes to where Rovere is suffering from a swollen tongue from the poison.  He informs ROvere that there is no hiding place that the Borgias will not find him. WHAT THE POPE!!! The assassin guy, Micheletto, put the altar boy up to poisoning Rovere and instead of paying the boy for following through, he drowns the kid in a nearby well. Well I’ll be an atheist if that wasn’t messed up! Lol. Read the rest of this entry »

Crystal like D-Train and a guy named Julian. Derrick aka D-Train is the guy with the tatts who thinks that Crystal’s writing is all important and inspiring. Julian, who Stacy and Charles think is perfect for her, is the clean collared guy who does more cultured thinks.  So after cooking dinner one night, Julian shows up to Crystal’s apartment unannounced. He eats from the same plate as her and even brings her flowers, but leaves shortly after because a friend has a flat tire. Suspect? But shortly after, Julian calls and invites Crystal to a VIP concert and she heads out. Read the rest of this entry »

I really am fed up with this show and I tried to hold on but it is not the same that it used to be. It stopped being a comedy and turned into a drama. It is too heavy. I just want to laugh again.

It’s Game Time!!!!!!!! #@TheGameBET

In short, You didnt have to sit through the whole thing to catch the jist of this episode. So i will save you the time. In short, Derwin said that he was going to have a small poker party with the boys. TeeTee invited some chickenheads over, unbeknown to Derwin. One of the hoochies made some magical brownies which Jason ate and Derwin got drunk and Malik sulked the entire night, but not before pouring champagne on one of the girls Tupac style.
