This one though I should add all sorts of trigger warnings. I can see the audience this is aimed for, I can see why on paper - or maybe even written differently/by someone else - this would be an interesting subject. There’s conflict and there’s asshole boyfriends and there’s sex and while I have no problems with the topics mentioned (the age gap when she’s not even a teenager was slightly freaky) the whole thing feels over the top, over dramatic, with no likeable characters and like I said not that well written.
Not-my-cup-of-tea stories written in beautiful prose, I can deal with. Engaging, interesting books with questionable editing, I can deal with. Slightly disturbing, not sure if researched properly plot with grammar mistakes is something I don’t deal well with.
After a few minutes to cool down after the ending I guess it’s not the WORST book ever. I think I may have read a few which were worse - but I just can’t think of any right now.
01. The Avengers
03. The Hobbit
04. The Artist
05. Zero Dark Thirty
06. Moonrise Kingdom
08. The Deep Blue Sea
09. Rust and Bone
That was totally off the top of my head so it’s not exact.
A mess. The episode before the break was better and we finally got some red marker revenging last week. But apart from that the whole first half of the season was just dull.
The first season there was a purpose, we were routing for Emily to revenge her father by destroying those involved, end game being the Graysons. As the audience I have no idea what we are supposed to be routing for this time. Does Emily even know what’s doing, what she wants?
I also hate all the new plot lines - Jack and his murder-slash-drug thing is stupid and boring (I’ve skipped alot of it). Charlotte was getting more interesting but Declan scenes just drag her down. Declan is the most annoying character ever (though this is not new). The Initiative is a rather weak plot. Are we supposed to fear them because I don’t even know who they are? They’re trying too hard to make them mysterious.
Unpopular opinion but I don’t like Aiden because a) he sucks at revenging and b) his extra screen time is obviously taking away time from Nolan/Emily which leads to that stupid sub-plot Nolan has been given (Tyler was such a better psycho that Marco the random-guy-they-threw-in). I also think she forgave him too easily for dumping her at revenge camp when he promised to take her with him (and all those other little lies when he first came back to town).
I also feel that the real life relationship between Emily VanCamp/Josh Bowman forces the writers to include Daniel into the plot more. In the beginning I always felt like he as going to be the sacrifice or at least I was sure Jack was the main love interest.
Positives this season; better wardrobe. And Henry Czerny as Conrad Grayson. All his snarky one-liners and facial expressions are perfect.
It took me like five days to get through the first 100 pages (mainly because I was busy) but I just read 500 pages this weekend - I don’t think I’ve done anything else.
It’s totally up to you - I’m using it for every season of TV completed. If you can manage keeping track of each episode you could try that. The important thing is to play around with the code, play around with what you what to do.
Thank you! Someone asked me earlier so I’m already working on cleaning up the codes but I will definitely be sharing it.
Sorry I missed this question! Yep, I watch Running Man - probably the only Korean thing I still bother with (and Shinhwa Broadcast). Favourite member would be Ji Hyo.
