TV’s Sunday Night Line Up!

Everyone knows Sunday night is the biggest night for TV, and if you don’t believe me just take a look at my PVR recordings. There was so much going on last night I had to make a list and decide which one was worth watching first.

BREAKING BAD

Breaking Bad TourismI’ll admit, I’ve been on a Breaking Bad binge diet. I started the entire series last month, because I was determined to catch up with everyone else. Watching the premiere with the rest of the world was insane, people were going crazy because they waited so long to see how Hank was going to react to Walter. I on the other hand, had just finished the last episode a few days before, thankfully I didn’t have to wait as long as everyone else. Anyways, getting back to the episode…Jesse doesn’t end up saying anything to Hank…which is a relief for Walt, but Walt’s determined to get Jesse out of town…either that or he’s going to kill him. Jesse is ready to start his new life with his new money…but when he realizes that Walter was the one who poisoned Brock..all hell breaks loose. Personally, I would’ve liked to see Jesse find happiness somewhere else, start a new life with his money…but of course he had to find out the truth. I have absolutely no idea what  Jesse’s going to do now that he knows. Well we know he drives over to Walt’s and starts pouring gasoline in his house…but what’s going to happen!! Also, if anyone could confirm. How did Jesse know Walt poisoned Brock. Was it because Saul’s guy took the weed out of Jesse’s pocket? Was really confused at that.

MTV Video Music Awards

MileyThe MTV VMA’s has to be one of my favourite award shows, it always has the best performances and most often boasts a special ‘reveal’. Last night was no different, with rumours swirling around a possible NSYNC reunion…every girl’s teenage dream was about to come true- again. Okay so I didn’t watch the VMA’s during the live broadcast…but I still made time to catch up on the performances…which were totally overrated. Yes, it’s true, I was surprisingly disappointed with the Miley Cyrus performance…like really…I did not expect her to twerk the entire time. Yes, I’m exaggerating…that performance was AWFUL! What was even more heartbreaking was the fact that Robin Thicke had to share the stage with her! Let the man sing his summer hit without the bald white girl twerking in front of him! I wasn’t sure what the consensus was…like did people enjoy her performance? Did they think she was a good dancer? Was her costume(s) or lack there of necessary…? It was a total train wreck…my favourite shot was when Miley started twerking for the 5000000th time and Drake just looks down at the floor. Amazing.

Lady Gaga who opened the show had an amazing performance. She is a brilliant entertainer and last night was no different. She did look a little more normal…which is a good thing, people were commenting on her beautiful bod and how nobody ever gets to see it. Flaunt it girl!

Kanye “Yeezus” West took time off from baby daddy duty to perform his hit ‘Blood On The Leaves’. I was so excited for this performance, it’s one of my fave songs off his album…also Kim announced he was her favourite performer of the night, so I totally believed it. Eh, it was alright. He was in front of this old rustic looking photograph of trees…and all you could see was his silhouette…his crazy arms were flailing all over the place while he rapped…it was average.

Yeezus

Then there was the Justin Timberlake performance. Everyone was waiting for Justin to bring sexy back. I absolutely love JT, he is one of my favourite performers, everyone loves his music but damn JT  wouldn’t even let the song finish before he was moving on to the next! I think he performed 6 or 7 of his songs (old and new)…but he would breeze through it so quickly I couldn’t even savour the moment. I get it, he can’t sing an entire song…but still it’s all about quality not quantity. And then….there were 5. Okay so 2 of them couldn’t really move, but seeing all 5 of them on stage again definitely brought back memories. Literally Joey couldn’t move, he was behind on all the dance moves…which is totally fine. Nobody expects Joey to be JT, I would’ve liked to see them just sing…without all the fancy failed dance moves. JC tried stealing the spotlight…but thankfully his mic was on low…really low. Then it was all over, after a short performance, the other 4 guys were sucked back down into oblivion while the man of the night continued on his performance. JT went on to a sing a few more songs…and the he finally finished off with ‘Mirrors’…and then Jimmy Fallon met him on stage to award him with the Vanguard award. Yay!

Drake’s performance was sexy as hell. I mean could we expect any different? I’ve seen better performances from Driz, but I was happy to hear him sing his latest track ‘Just Hold On We’re Going Home’. After that he sang ‘Started From the Bottom’…we saw a quick glimpse of RiRi…she wasn’t even standing! She looked PISSED.

Those were the most memorable performances…I was absolutely shocked that Robin Thicke didn’t win song of the summer? That is some b@!$%!!

DEXTER

dexter-season-8-make-your-own-kind-of-musicI’ve been saying it all season and I’ll say it again. This season of Dexter has been the best one of all. Super impressed with what the writers have done with our favourite serial killer. With this being the final season, it all comes down to a few more episodes…and I can’t wait to see how this is going to finish. Hannah’s back in Dexter’s life which is a good thing, I like her character, and I think Dexter’s ending has to include someone he can share his life with. Last night we found out that Dr.Vogul had a son that was a psychopath, after she put him in a mental asylum at the age of 14…he ended up ‘dying’ in a hospital fire that would kill several more people.  Dexter finds traces of DNA that are related to Vogul…that’s why he questions her about her family. She assures him her son is dead, but Dexter doesn’t believe it, especially when Vogul tells him her son was a genius. Anyways, it turns out the guy that killed Cassie was the guy who she was dating..and that guy is actually Vogul’s real son. Dexter is determined to put him on his table…and then start the rest of his life with Hannah. That doesn’t happen because Daniel is just as smart as Dexter. Dexter rushes back to Vogul to warn her…but she just tells him to back off and leave her alone. Dexter leaves, and then we see Vogul with her long lost son Daniel.

Keeping Up With the Kardashians

I’ve been trying to follow along this season, but I have to say I’m getting a little bored with these fake story lines. Rob learning how to carve wood sculptures? Really…this guy can’t even figure his s*** out and he’s going to learn how to use a saw to sculpt? They couldn’t think of anything else? And then Kim and Kourtney decide to feed the entire family placenta…like a human placenta…as a joke. In the end we find out it really isn’t placenta…it’s actually just beef brisket. Also the family chef is totally hot…and Rob is totally not. What is up with my man? He’s looking grimier and sweatier with each episode…I really hope he gets out of this funk and becomes the hunk I fell in love with. Speaking of funks, there has been reports going on all day that Lamar Odom is addicted to crack? He’s apparently had a drug problem for the last two years, and it’s coming out now that Khloe has had enough. Lamar has apparently left the house he shares with Khlo-Money and is staying in a hotel. I don’t know what to think of this…I am totally Team Khloe and Lamar….anytime anyone says anything about these two I’m the first to defend them. I hope someone can get the real story….or Khloe comes out on Twitter and says something!

Here’s what Khloe Tweeted yesterday:

Okay, I think that’s all for my Sunday night recap. There are so many shows starting up in the fall…let’s all enjoy the time we have now because we haven’t even seen crazy yet!

Follow me peeps!

Dexter Season Premiere!

Last night was the season premiere of Showtime’s serial killer hit Dexter. Season 7 was a highly anticipated premiere as Dexter’s lifelong secret is finally revealed to his sister Deb. If you don’t remember what happened during last season’s finale, Dexter has Trevor wrapped in plastic in the abandoned church ready to kill him. Just then, Deb randomly shows up to the church (to check on things) and she witnesses Dexter, her brother, kill Trevor.

The way the episode played out was really interesting, it started off with Dexter rushing off in his car, he tries to get gas but all his credit cards are declined, then he rushes into the airport and books a flight to the Ukraine. It seems like he’s getting ready to runaway.

Then the episode goes back to the scene inside the church, it is the continuation from the season finale. Dexter tries explaining to Deb that Trevor attacked him and everything was in self defense. He suffered a moment of insanity when he wrapped Trevor in the plastic, put on his apron, and had all the knives set up. Deb tries to believe him in that moment, instead of calling it in, Dexter comes up with a plan to stage the murder as a suicide and burn the church to the ground. Deb obviously cares for her brother, she goes along with his plan- but obviously she is tripping out and doesn’t understand what is happening. It’s clear that Dexter has done this before, Deb is literally shaking, and Dexter seems in control and ready to take care of the situation. Clearly, Dexter doesn’t have everything under control because in the midst of his clean up job, he drops his blood slide down into this random hole in the church floor, and has no idea it’s missing- until he’s home the following day.

Deb and Dexter spend the night together (not in a weird way), and in the morning they both get the call from dispatch about the church fire and Trevor’s body. When the gang leaves the church, LaGuerta somehow spots the shiny piece of glass sitting in the hole in the ground that nobody else noticed. She picks it up with her handy hair clip and books it as evidence. Mike, one of the new detectives calls Deb that night and tells her it’s weird how Trevor’s car wasn’t at the church, Deb brushes it off but she is freaking out that she’s covering for Dexter. Mike randomly pulls over beside a car that has a flat tire on the highway. The man is in the middle of changing the tire, Mike offers to help by opening the guys trunk and finds a dead girl inside. The man pulls out his gun and shoots Mike a couple of times, wipes down his car, hops into Mike’s cruiser and rides off.

The rest of the episode, the crew is busy solving Mike’s murder…while Deb is trying to understand what the heck is wrong with Dexter. She starts putting pieces together between the ice truck killer and Dexter. If you don’t follow the show, the ice truck killer was also Dexter’s biological brother, he was a serial killer, and he imitated the way Dexter did his killings. When Deb sees the evidence from those killings, she finds it really odd that two brothers have been linked to the same type of killing (plastic wrap, table, gloves/apron).

In the end, Dexter figures out who the driver of the car was and doesn’t tell anyone else. Instead, he decides this is the best time to get his frustration out by killing the Ukranian guy! It all comes together as the scene where he’s driving to the gas station/airport are because he’s tracking the Ukranian dude, not because he’s running away. [Jamie, the nanny has a weird psychopath boyfriend who is obsessed with Dexter. For some reason he cancels Dexter’s credit cards, that’s why Dexter can’t use them at the gas station.] Anyways, he ends up killing the Ukranian guy…all the while Deb finds out that Dexter has been telling Jamie he’s working late nights, but he really hasn’t been at work.

LaGuerta tries to figure out who the blood slides belong to, and why they were at the scene…she discreetly steals the blood slides from the evidence pile without Vince catching her.

Dexter returns home, he thinks he’s in the clear. He opens the door to his apartment and finds Deb sitting on his couch in the middle of all his things being thrown around, she’s found his knife collection, his blood slides…and pretty much anything else that points to Dexter being a serial killer. She asks him if he’s killed all the people in the blood slides, he replies ‘Yes’…She asks him if he’s a serial killer…he replies ‘Yes’…and the episode ends like that.

It was so intense! This season is definitely going to be a huge hit…let’s hope it doesn’t lose its momentum.
