My Tribute to Diana of V

I was totally devastated tonight during the season finale of V on ABC when Anna killed her mother Diana.  Why such devastation?  Well, let me take you back about 27 years…

It’s 1984 and my family lost our home.  Long story short, we had to move in with my aunt and with 10 people in the house, tv time was limited to whatever everyone agreed on in the living room.

The “V” Miniseries starts and the entire family watched the first part but not everyone was into it but my mom and I.  We watched it together in my parents bedroom and it was one of 2 things that really brought us together in a long time.  I was 14 and resentful of her for all of the abuse that I had to endure, really, I hated her.  I wanted to love her and this was our common ground.

We watched the entire mini-series together then V the Final Battle, which was sort of a second mini series, then they brought us V the TV Series and we watched that together every week.  The show ended with peace on all sides and although it gave us closure for the show, it ended our “thing” that we had going.  Life back to normal.

I have to admit that even though I was rooting for the fifth column, I was also rooting for Diana because she was just such an awesome character in the show.  Not just her hair but the dramatic look on her face every time the fifth column would foil her plans for victory.  The constant fight that she had with Lydia and, well, everyone.  She was very entertaining to me.

During the early 2000’s I hear rumors of a return of V.  The rumors that I heard were not a remake or a series but a movie, sort of a “V Returns” type of thing, you know like Superman Returns where it’s 25 or so years later.  I liked the idea of a return, prefer a series but I’ll take whatever I can get.

Summer 2009 comes and I hear from the futon critic website that ABC is bringing V back as a new series and I couldn’t be more thrilled.  Naturally I watched it.  At first I wasn’t sure I liked it because it wasn’t exactly as it was in the 80’s but then I started thinking that I like it because it is a remake and the best way to remake an old show is to change everything.

I was very happy with the first season but then I heard rumor that Jane Badler was coming back to reprise her role as Diana.  What?  REALLY?  HAPPY!!!

I think she was great during her short time in the 2nd season so I was very heart-broken and devastated when Anna killed her in the middle of the season finale.  I didn’t expect the show to give her queendom back to her but I had hoped that she would have become a regular in the show again and not just a guest starring role.

I’m not truly convinced that Diana is dead, after all, Anna has brought some of her visitor friends back to life.  She brought Dale (Alan Tudyk) back (then Joshua killed him again lol) and she brought Marcus (Christopher Shyer) back.  I’m sure the fifth column could secretly take Diana’s body to a secret lab room and bring her back to life the way Anna brought those other people back to life.  The only true way to kill these new aliens is with a pill that dissolves the entire body.

This isn’t just a goodbye to Diana, this is a I will never forget you.  Not only how V brought my mother and I together before she passed away but because you talk to me on Twitter.  I will always be grateful for that, you have made my day, no, my lifetime.

This show means more to me than anyone will ever know and bringing back my favorite original character means even more than that so I thank the producers and writers for bringing my beloved Diana back to me, even though it was for a very short time.  You too have made my lifetime because I know that my mom was watching it with me every week just as we watched it together 27 years ago.  Thank you for bringing us back together one last time. </3

Updated to correct facts in the show that I missed, some nerd I turned out to be.

The Cape Series Finale

Eric Balfour tweeted something yesterday about how he was pissed that people were saying that Summer Glau is a show killer because The Cape is ending their season. So this is the first time I’m hearing that the show is over and what made me mad was that they didn’t even tell us that on NBC the last time it aired.

I get on Twitter this morning and scroll down in my Celebrities list to see what I missed and see a tweet from NBCTheCape:

@NBCTheCape: The Cape’s finale will be up TONIGHT (3/11) at MIDNIGHT on NBC.com! @TVGuide has a preview (WARNING: some spoilers) http://bit.ly/gvHohu

So I guess it is official, not only is The Cape ending but they have the series finale ready for us to watch. Wait, what? Midnight? On NBC.com? What? You mean I gotta go to The Cape page on the NBC website to watch the series finale? At midnight? What? Why can’t they find a time slot for it on tv?

Well, I guess I should be so lucky that they are allowing us to see the series finale unlike ABC who made us wait for months before they would give us the final episodes of Pushing Daisies.

Well this sucks big time because I really loved The Cape. I read that TV guide article that @NBCTheCape tweeted and it says that The Cape creator wanted to kill off a character by the season finale but ratings slipped and they went from 13 to 10 episodes to finale. Hey, the ratings didn’t slip from me because I watched it faithfully every week after Chuck.

And let me respond about Summer Glau, she is not a show killer. Just because every show she’s been on has ended doesn’t mean jack. It’s not her fault and those trolls who said that need to go back under their bridge and stop spreading hate about her. She’s a very good actress, I mean look at her work in Firefly. I was totally convinced that her character was batshit crazy which is what they were going for. If she does another show I will definitely watch it.

I don’t normally wait for a show to air on a website so I’ll have to keep chanting in my head “The Cape on NBC.com tonight at midnight” so I don’t forget.

This really sucks but I’m happy that we’re getting a finale episode at least.

The Gates 2 Hour Season Finale

Tonight was the 2 hour season finale of The Gates on ABC.

Wow, all I can say is what a shocker. They gave us a huge plot twist right at the very end with a gigantic cliff hanger until next June when hopefully it returns.

You know it’s too bad it was a summer only show because I can certainly see this being a fall to end of spring show with 24 episodes. It was that good of a show.

Let’s see, what all did The Gates have? Vampires, werewolves, sucubus, witch, and whatever that woman at the police station was without a heart. I thought she was a vampire all this time when she admitted to being “special”. I had no idea that her heart was in that box. And now what is the son? Is he a zombie now? Why does he all of a sudden have power and glowing eyes?

You know when Devan said she had to kill him to bring him back, I had a strange feeling that he would not come back right. I kept thinking that he’s gotta come back as a zombie or something. You can’t just bring a dead person back to life and not have a consequence. If I learned anything from Charmed is that every spell comes with a price.

And they were going to move, HA! Now they can’t because they have to keep their “special” son in the Gates to protect him and everyone else in the world. Now they’re stuck forever in the Gates.

You know I’ve been watching this show all summer and I still have trouble with their names. I know these names. Devan the witch, Dylan and Claire the vampires. That’s it lol. I had to go to IMDB to verify that those are those people’s names and it is.

If this were a fall to end of spring show instead of a summer only show I would have all the names memorized by the end of the season instead of only knowing 3 names lol.

Anyway, it was a very good show and I can’t wait for its return, if it does return. I hope it returns, they can’t leave me with this huge cliffhanger and not return next year.

Better Than Me?

In the season finale of Kathy Griffin’s My Life on the D-List, she was getting a star on the Palm Springs walk of er… fame?  She was visiting Suzanne Summers and they were walking through her “organic” garden and Suzanne was basically beating up Kathy for drinking diet sodas.

I know it seems that in all of my posts I’m talking trash but I’m not telling anyone that I’m better than they are because I have TONS of faults.  I’m not perfect, nobody is.  And people who eat healthy certainly are not better yet they act like they are better than everyone else.  Vegetarians too.  They act so superior because they don’t eat meat and you are such a horrible person for eating a hamburger.

It’s arrogant for anyone who eats organic or vegetarian to think that they are better than everyone else and to me it just shouts douchebag alert.  When I saw Suzanne basically making Kathy feel bad for sneaking in diet soda at her party it made me cringe because she has no right to tell anyone what they can and cannot drink.  It’s like the arrogance of Christians for telling gay people they cannot get married.

Wow, how did I sneak that in there?  LOL

Edit: I have to make a correction in this post.  Ok 1st, it was wrong for me to say douchebag alert.  And 2nd, a person does have the right to say that you cannot sneak something into their house because it is “their” house after all and if they don’t want something in then you shouldn’t bring it in.  Talk about arrogant.  I was being arrogant in both cases.  I truly am sorry.

True Blood Season 1 Finale

Tonight was the season finale of True Blood on HBO.  I was glad they finally found the murderer and Jason got out of jail.  Poor Lafayette didn’t have a good ending though.  They ended it with Andy finding a dead body in the back of his car (poor Lafayette).  He was such a good character.  Maybe he will come back next year as a vampire though.  The person who was the actual murderer of all the women including the grandmother was the last person I thought would be the bad guy and he deserved what he got.

At the end of the episode they said that they are currently in production for another season which will aire in the summer of 2009 so I’m glad this didn’t get canceled.

Edit: Boy was I wrong, I thought for sure it was Lafayette in the back of Andy’s car but thank goodness it wasn’t.

Eureka

Tonight was the season finale of Eureka but they kept saying mid-season finale.  This show is only a summer show so I’m a bit confused why they keep saying mid-season.  I much prefer it being a summer show because then it doesn’t interfere with my other shows.  Scheduling I mean.

I like Francis Fisher and I was surprised when they put her on Eureka but I wasn’t too happy with her character because she was so mean to everyone.  But near the end of the finale I finally got to see who she really is and why she has acted the way she has (the character hehe).

I was surprised that Nathan didn’t get discovered working at a diner as the cook not knowing who he was hehe.  I didn’t think they would really kill him off.  But nothing about him except for the fact that he did leave behind a part of him since Allison is pregnant with his baby.

And then the shocker of the night at the very end, Sheriff Carter is fired.  You can’t have Eureka without Sheriff Jack Carter.  I mean I guess you could but he’s kinda the lead character.  It all started with him moving to Eureka and the show centers around him and his daughter Zoe.  Well, I guess I have a whole year to wait to see what happens next hehe.

Smallville and Supernatural

YAY the summer is finally over and now it’s time for all my shows to start coming back.  Tonight is Smallville and Supernatural.  I think this will be Smallville’s last season.  Clark Kent is getting a bit too old now to not become Superman yet.  I’m sure at the very end of this season he will wear the superman tights and cape and that will be the very end of Smallville.  It would be cool if they had a Superman spin-off so they don’t have to end the show, they can have another 8 years lol.  I doubt they would though.  I’m sure Tom Welling doesn’t want to be type cast for the rest of his life.

Supernatural should be good considering when last we saw him, Dean was in hell being stretched like Kenny McCormick was in South Park.  I don’t know if he was being stretched but he was just hanging around in hell lol.  Sam has to get him out but how?  I figure he either has to cast a spell to summon Dean so that he can just keep dean out of hell as much as he can then when he disappears he has to summon him again.  I don’t know.  Maybe he will have to kill that little girl and then dean comes back to earth.  I really don’t know how it works.  Oh wait when Daddy was taken to hell when Dean was in a coma, he was taken by that one demon but eventually Dean or Sam killed him with that gun that kills demons and dad wasn’t set free.

I guess I will just have to wait and see.  They will probably keep him in hell for a few episodes or maybe even half the season or who knows maybe the entire season until the season finale or something.  I love speculating what might happen hehe.
