February 24, 2013 on Enter The Videogum Oscar Pool!
I actually liked the Danish version less than the American, and I only watched the Danish version because I was fed up with the remake and just wanted to know who did it. I wouldn`t have even watched the whole thing if it wasn`t for my roommates joining in, who found it equally frustrating, but we just kept going with it because it was fun to see just how incompetent Sarah could be. My flatmates are both Scandinavian by the way, which might not mean anything, but since we all hated it equally I can say it wasn't just my `merican sensibilities that made me think there were too many red herrings, assholes/dislikable characters, instances where someone shouted `I know you did it!` based on little to no evidence, shoddy police work etc etc etc. Also, one of my professors said she thought Sarah was a great character because she `didn't care about family or love interests like most female characters.` So being an asshole to everyone in your life and also being bad at your job makes you a good female character apparently? which is what I wish I had said to her but couldn't come up with quick enough because I was so dumbstruck someone liked Sarah in first place.

February 13, 2012 on The Walking Dead S02E08: They Just Kept Coming
I have yet to see Two & a Half Men on tv here, because they are too busy always playing Big Bang Theory and Scrubs and NCIS. But I have only been in the country for a few months, so I guess I missed the worst of it? (Which would have been all the shows I Iisted, plus 2.5 Men, obv.)

Sometimes I'm bad at hearing, but did Adrien Brody say his name is "Mr. Barf"?

I really need to go back in time and change my director pick. Stupid Tom Hooper (might have) lost me $50!

We were trying to figure out what the tattoo on Shane's chest said; I thought it was "Lil' Baby" my brother thought it was "Lil' Bandit" and my dad thought it was "Lil' Breast." Well, my dad's is the most accurate I think.

I didn't really like the narrator being the little girl. I guess I just hate having someone younger than me tell me what is up.

So far 75% of Miles' work on the show has involved anuses. And he is my favorite.
