Alright, guys–normally I watch LUX all the way to the end and THEN commence the bitching, but I was so inspired last week by Nicole’s very thorough bitching that I’ve decided to watch and blog in segments, separated by commercial breaks. I’m going to hit play now.
Goddamn, there’s so much bullshit before we even get to the theme song, which you all know my feelings about. Let me not recap every detail of the action and just say this … I did giggle a little at “bus sex”, but I think not for the reasons the show wanted me to. (It sounds like butt sex, in case you were curious.) Also, how did Lux spend most of her life in hospitals if she’s spent most of her life in foster care? Whatever, don’t ask her to do the math because she had a stroke. Yes, precious petal Lux, before the opening credits, is diagnosed with a neurological disorder (and yet they let Cate out of there without an exam, WTF), and also … does anyone else kind of feel like Emma’s kid is a poor man’s RPattz?
Okay, if there is one thing I currently hate more than Life Unexpected, it is the goddamn marketing campaign for the Toyota Highlander. I hate that smug bastard kid and I want to bitch slap his head off a la Vampire Diaries. God, what a useful talent.
I’ve decided that Tasha can join the Baze and Ryan spin off. Who would’ve guessed, right? Except … her loaning out her apartment is super stupid, even though I get the twisted Tasha loyalty logic that leads her to do it. But really, I don’t understand a couple of things about this. First of all, yeah, Pedoteach has roommates, but … I’ve known a lot of first year teachers and they make fine money, enough to live on their own for sure and if he IS living with roommates, that means he’s spending way less money and should be able to spring for some fleabag motel instead of dragging yet another high school girl into the mix. There is not a snowball’s chance in hell that this can end well. And also? Hasn’t anyone here ever heard of fucking in a car? GOD.
