Holy Crap!!

here since Lj refuses to embed it. Thanks to AOLR for the visuals.

I have much speculation but I think we will be teased throughout the entire hiatus by whatifs and how comes, so until I can no longer keep my opinions to myself and certain others who get to hear me postulate I'll spare you all.

It's taken fifteen episodes to get there but I think now we're back on track with the show I know and want to love again.

Ha'i'ole was like part 2 of the season 1 finale, and teased us all with what we had come to expect from our show and set us up for a big ass fall. The introduction of Lori Weston, whether it was to reduce the gay, level up a gender bias, whiten up the cast, or a combination of all of them it was blatantly obvious that it wasn't working and wouldn't work.

Fandom erupted, the bulk of us hated her, the rest let their screams of misogny ring loud but you know what? The bulk of it wasn't Lauren German's fault. Was she up to the task? No not really, even watching her run makes me cringe, but that aside, it never should have gotten to that particular actress gracing our screens in that role.

Alex O'Loughlin has chemistry with everyone even the bloody Camaro but with her he ALWAYS looked uncomfortable, stilted and awkward and the rest of the cast were no better. If she was the best of four in a chemistry test, I hate to think how bad the others were. So no, it's not her fault it's the casting directors.

The rest of the blame has to lay with the writers, they have definitely dropped the ball this season. Even with our ability last season to disregard the AS IF moments in the scripts, the addition of characters that didn't sit right with the viewers along with poor writing only accentuated what ails them this season. Whether this was because they found themselves with an actress that wasn't really up to the job and had to scramble for a while and redistribute lines, or maybe they had trouble fitting the story around the new number of players. Or maybe they just suck. Who knows?

Whatever the cause, it's over, Joe is laying low, Lori fell on her own sword and we can hope that the last three relatively enjoyable episodes grow into 6-8 episodes of awesome, and we can know that we have our show back

More importantly the wingnuts that call themselves the production team can look at the shit they wrought this season and learn never to do that again.

I had lost the affection for reviewing my feelings for the show that had made me love it, because I had always been taught if you don't have anything good to say, don't say anything at all. It's shallow, but while the team was playing hot potato with Lori it was sucking all my enjoyment out of it. I still watched, because I'm as loyal as the day is long and I will officially watch ANYTHING our core four are in, so I'm on this particular ride until I run out of track, but later you may expect a review of tonight, and probably expect one every week from here on out. Just saying....

Well....

I'm home, I'm pretty much caught up I think. Responded to everyone I owe I think, so if you haven't heard from me and you were expecting can you give me a heads up? Only 203 days until I can go back.

Several things and it could get long winded (I can hear your shocked gasps from here. Behave!!) so have some cuts to save your flists.

Wow, that turned out way longer than I intended.

So, I haven’t felt compelled to jump up and down bemoaning the things that were wrong with Mea Makamae (which apparently means Look we’ve remembered how to do this right!).

It wasn’t back to season 1 standards by a long shot, but it was so tantalisingly close that it didn’t matter.

just in case you haven't seen it )

Must say our team looks all sorts of delicious.

They are just made of pretty

But really how come the new girl gets more wardrobe changes than Grace, and interestingly Grace's pictures were all lovely and tasteful, a good number of Lauren's look like cheap soft porn (and by cheap I do mean tacky!). Not liking what that says at all.

Way to make us continue to not care for her, CBS!
