The Channel Chicks


I want to introduce you all to a new thing. That's right... it is a thing. My friend Sam and I have bonded over many different moments in our life. But not until earlier this month did we realize our biggest similarity - an obsession with TV and shows and the characters in them. Obsession might sound a little strong... but let us all be honest, Sam and I watch to much TV. So here we are with a new thing. The Channel Chicks. Reviewing shows from last week to get you PUMPED for the shows this week - oh and when it is in between seasons and new shows are lacking, we will review some oldies but goodies. So sit back, relax, and get ready for the review - with all sorts of *SPOILERS* (you've been warned) - brought to you by....

Miss USA
This one is Deidre's strength after competing in pageants herself. But this is what we can say about it...

Swimsuits - lots of the girls were toooo skinny. Lots of little ribbys poking out. The most normal looking ones didn't even make it through. So that was sad. Although it also made us think twice about eating that next donut... dang skinny girls... but who are we kidding? Donuts always trump skinny.

Evening gown - there were some real winners and some real losers. That sounds mean.. but you understand. Miss Connecticut and Miss Illinois both had beautiful gowns. Deidre's favorite was Miss Alabama's - Miss DC wore it at Miss America and it has been love ever since. Sherri Hill... you nailed it! Miss Texas and Miss Lousianna... think again. Too much too soon.

Onstage question - THE BIGGEST DEBACLE SINCE MISS SC TEEN USA IN 2007! Oh Miss Utah, we feel for you. If you ever have a doubt - revert to something you know... REVERT! We felt really bad for her, holy cow, I can't imagine being up on that stage and having to answer questions. Here's the thing though, we watched her face while NeNe was reading the question and we just felt like she wasn't paying attention at all... so how could she answer correctly (or coherently answer) the question. It was especially painful because after about 3 seconds she paused and you could tell she knew she messed it all up - I can almost imagine what was going on inside her head... "Start over? Keep going? I'm not answering the question at all.... Start over? Keep going? Keeping going...." Overall, we weren't impressed with anyone's answer.

Crowning - Not surprised at all. But Deidre wanted Alabama. And Sam wanted Miss Utah to listen next time she got asked an onstage question.
Pretty Little Liars
First things first… How did the pig turn into a human? That threw us off a little... and then when it did turn into a human... aren't they better about protecting the body? It looked like a white plastic sheet thrown over Wildon’s face. And when it blew off we were thrown off. Why did no one felt the need to recover it? "Let’s just put the body here and come what may - who cares if the family hasn't been notified!" Basically… we were confused about the sheet, we feel like someone would have done something about that, however it is Rosewood... not much thinking actually seems to go on in that police department...

So we hate that we still can't completely trust Toby, we wish they would just let us know if we can hate him or love him... because left to our own devices we’re inclined to love him and his impeccable abs...eff….

We feel like Mona is nice? But maybe evil? We’re pretty interested in how Mona's going to fit in this season, because the way they ended the episode was very reminiscent of the first episode's ending so it makes me wonder if she's going to become their friend... and end up being one of the group.

Those dolls at the trailer park… OH MY GOSH THE DOLLS!!!! If we didn't already have a problem with dolls -which we do- we do now... Holy crap... So creepy! We feel like Alison does have to be alive, but how?
Another thing that confused us… Alison’s mom is back in town. And loves to talk about Alison. Whhhhat? Wasn’t she a drunken mess last appearance and hated Rosewood and everything in it? Why the change of heart? Maybe Ali is alive?

What about the cell phone in the casket? What crap is A trying to pull? And why didn’t someone just “accidently” pull that black cape off of that weirdo’s head at the funeral? Oh… and new police detective guy? Seems nice – he is bound to not be so nice too..

Basically episode one left us with a lot of questions.
We had a hard time getting over how bad her hair was... We spent the first 10 minutes thinking about that, is that normal? Also, he had bad hair too… We think they are trying to make us think he's a serial killer just through his hair. The only person with good hair was the black friend. Fact. She did have good hair.

We’re interested to see what role her guy/best friend is going to play, does he like her because that would be pretty typical for a TV show like this...

Red jump rope, yellow jump rope, who cares? Fight it out girls, fight it out.

And can we just say – for the whole show – who are their parents? Do they, besides the cop dad and Socio’s mom, even exist? That party was crazy… to many kids jammed in one house on a school night – no parents. Who just lets a 16 year old girl walk out of their home in the morning without saying anything? Weren't her parent's wondering where she was?

Also. How did that one girl, “Know why he killed his aunt?” That necklace has got to be some evil heirloom or something that keeps people at bay. Okay. Maybe not anything supernatural – it was his aunt’s necklace. But we need to point out how creepy she looked in that photo…

However we are impressed by the acting, it's a scary subject to portray and they'll do well.

Well that wraps it up... sort of. We watch more but we need to take baby steps getting into this. Did you watch any of these show - what was your impression? What shows are you watching? What would you like us to review?

I didn't watch the Miss. USA pageant but I heard about it on the radio today. I just kept thinking that poor girl, I honestly don't think I could do better, but I sure felt bad for her!
