LD – Spoilers, yes or no?


With the highly anticipated 10.07 just hours away, it’s time to talk about spoilers.

Do you want them, or do you like to be surprised?

Well, honestly, I am ambivalent about them. On one hand, I am perfectly fine with general spoilers. For example, like Doris will be in the episode.

But I don’t want to know what will happen in detail. Yes, I do know about the leaked pages, but truly hope they were leaked on purpose. As a red herring.

I never watch the sneak peeks, and I try to avoid the promos as much as possible. I like to be surprised. I guess it also depends on the mood; sometimes I like them better than not. 😉

It’s very difficult to give the viewers enough so that they want to watch, without spoiling the fun. Unfortunately, CBS is very bad in finding that balance. 😉

So, how do you handle spoilers? Do you seek them out, or are you mad when you stumble upon them by mistake?

Let’s pic(k) Steve!

Episode 10.05

Horror Movie Quote Edition

Now this was an episode I enjoyed – if you can say that for a Halloween episode. But I have to say I liked the storyline with Steve, Junior, Duke and Noelani way more. The other one was over the top, predictable and with a really weird unsatisfying ending.

But how awesome is it to see Duke more involved? And how incredibly awesome are Steve and Noelani together? And just thinking I could have more of the wonderful McJunior if someone else finally decides to go back to Jersey? These four actors bring it! In every scene. So I am a little bit miffed we clearly got robbed of Steve and Junior scenes at the end. There’s something on the editing floor, I am sure.

I am not convinced of the Quinn/Tani pairing. It was their second time, and their second failure. Tsk tsk.

Another thing: The boy who played Tunde was great! This kid can act!

I was disappointed that there was no Steve/Max hug, but we got these awesome Steve/Noelani moments instead, so all is good in my world.

Now let’s go. Read the captions with a deep and raspy voice. It’s scary times! Muahaha! ~leiCa

Good evening students of the macabre!
