@elementalman I thought it was probably the best thing he's done in at least two weeks. I can get why Nat has been moving him away from ballads, but really, I never need to see Tee doing anything uptempo ever again. It's just all so corny. This is more his wheelhouse, even if the balladeering can get a bit overdone.

@Username814 Yes, one team of women was medically evacuated, prompting the producers to scrap the planned return of Redemption Island. I hate RI so while I hate that anyone had to get injured/sick for this to go away, I'm glad that RI is gone and Exile Island is in its place.

@DesertFox @NickRoman1 Aw, you just made my day!
I totally will start listing my picks now though, even though we're super, super late into the competition. Funnily enough, I haven't even given the slightest consideration as to who might actually win this thing. I'm actually really interested in who will make the finals. Emily West is out in front for me, as I'm having trouble even thinking about who could possibly stop her. (Seriously, I don't know who can, at this point)

@DesertFox Hmm...it never occurred to me to list my own picks, actually, haha.
I suppose mine would be Emily West, Mara Justine, Aerial Animation, Mike Super, Sons of Serendip, and Miguel Dakota. I'd prefer Andrey over Miguel, but I don't expect it to happen.

Out of town on business, unfortunately. So no report, although I'll post my thoughts on the show in tomorrow's results post. I'm posting all this from a phone right now, and I'm terrible with technology haha.

@stormkraker Incredible catch. I never would have caught that on my own in a million years, but now I see it and can't unsee it.
I kinda feel bad for the guy, in that I absolutely loved his act before, but just didn't feel this was up to snuff. It was a cool "street magic" trick, but I don't know if he could fill a room with it, or headline as a million dollar act.

@Rickey That's a virtually impossible bar to clear though.
Let the storm rage ooooooonnnnnnn!
(Seriously though, it's time to retire this song already)
PRESENT! Let's do this!
@BATBVINCATfan I'd love to have JT get supernatural too, and I'd be kind of surprised if that's not where we're headed. Didn't the government guys use mysterious, scientifically-altered blood to bring JT back? I don't think JT will be a Beast, but I do think he'll have powers of some kind. And that EXCITES me!
1 week, 6 days ago on ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Season 2 Retrospective Pt. 5: A Season 3 Wish List
@ruthjccassidy Oh man, I haven't even started thinking about it yet! I suppose BATB and Reign are two of my top shows for the convention, although I'd love if some ABC Family shows came to the con as well, unlikely as that might be. I'm big on The Fosters, obviously, so I'd love to chat with that cast.
@moriara Thank you so much for the kind words, and for reading!
I kind of agree that we don't need gratuitous sex to understand that Vincent and Cat love each other, although I do think The CW wants to add to the soap opera element of the show. Your #2 and #3 suggestions are fantastic too. Until late in the season, I had completely forgotten Vincent was a doctor, so when he appeared in the hospital and helped out, and seemed right at home, I started getting the feeling that, "Hey, Vincent as a Doctor has some potential as a story in the future. Or, at least, Vincent using more of his medical experience/knowledge."
And I, too, would love to see Vincent and Cat helping more than just hunting, as I feel they're fundamentally good people, and that the people they're hunting aren't fundamentally bad either.
@Allifos Ooo, good suggesting on showing us the Middle East! And you know, I never DID think about just why he was following Vanessa that night. I think they said in the end of Season 1 that he wanted to get answers on a possible cure from Vanessa or something, but now I'm thinking I'm just misremembering. I genuinely don't know if I'm thinking about what he actually said, or what I just wanted him to, haha.
@BATBVINCATfan I always figured they meant that she aided in Muirfield's child experiments, although not necessarily willingly. But I'd love clarification too.
@Windflwr Wired4romance Vincent with kids...interesting. I think that would take some of the edge off of the character, but in a good way. It wouldn't surprise me if the show started teasing a future between Vincent and Cat that features children, since it introduces the interesting question of whether the child would inherit Vincent's beast DNA. I mean, how do you even control a baby, much less a baby BEAST?
@ruthjccassidy And thank you for reading!
I've really turned the corner on Ana, and feel awful for her, even as I understand that she pretty much made her own misery (which ended up affecting her children). However, she's trying to get herself back together, so I'm hoping she doesn't slide back into drugs and alcohol. That'd just be heartbreaking. Alexandra Barreto is great in the role though.
1 week, 6 days ago on The Fosters – Summer Finale 2014 – Recap: The Selfish Ones
@DesertFox @NickRoman1 I know you weren't disagreeing! Sorry, I'm terrible at conveying subtext. I was actually agreeing with what you said. I actually did forget about Little Mix for a hot minute, to my shame.
2 weeks ago on The X Factor Australia Top 12 Results: Top 11 Revealed on 08/18/2014 (VIDEO)
@DesertFox How true.
I don't have a problem with the producers privileging their own manufactured groups if the magic is actually there, but I feel they were forcing it pretty hard with Younger Than Yesterday, and it's week-to-week whether XOX will actually pan out. I mean, I'm rooting for them to work it out, but a lot of factors are up to Dannii, and I wonder if she's giving them the best songs she could be giving them.

@rockers @NickRoman1 Thank you for reading and hanging out!
All videos now posted! Thank you for hanging out tonight! I'll see you next weekend for the finale!
@mamashmoi No, I'm not sure he can be. Not safely, anyway. I think if he were any more, it would be dangerous levels of cuteness.

@DesertFox I know, I just like including videos with the judges comments. Also, the official YouTube takes the better part of forever in uploading them all. But I'll just add both as they become available. Thanks for the heads up!

@KariCook That quote was a head-scratcher to me too, unless by "longest-standing" he means chronologically in the world of the show, since The Doctor encountered multiple Claras across time. But even then, that's a massive stretch.

@MandyM2 Me either! It's one of my favorite shows, even when it's dull. I just kind of like chilling with the characters, particularly Hughes.

@Idolwild I hadn't been keeping up, as I took over for AGT once live shows started on SYTYCD, but just from poking around on Twitter, it seemed like a foregone conclusion that one of the eliminated dancers would be Jacque. So to see this result is pretty surprising, since a lot of people seem genuinely stunned. Rudy, in particular, seemed absolutely gutted.
2 weeks, 5 days ago on So You Think You Can Dance 11 Results: Top 6 Revealed on 08/13/2014
@Jay Styles They didn't mention anything about one, but next week is the last group of 12 set to perform. So if there is going to be one, they'll announce it then. I wouldn't be surprised if it's just each judge getting to bring back one act though. Sort of like last year.
@MoniqueHuurman No kidding! But we'll all ride it out together. #Beasties
2 weeks, 5 days ago on ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Season 2 Retrospective Pt. 5: A Season 3 Wish List
@KarenLBarnes1 Oooo I like the notion of bringing back Aaron! It seems strange that we've never explored that angle again, and I think it could make for some great TV, just by having another Keller to contrast with Vincent.
@Zouza Thank you for the kind words! I'm glad Beasties have enjoyed these essays, since I've certainly enjoyed writing them.
@FayHerridge We Nicks are a fun bunch. :)
@jazzangel1226 "And I would be okay w/ VinCat breaking up if it was for an ulterior motive, like one of them did it to protect the other"I could actually see them doing this, but I think they're going to want to keep VinCat together due to the shorter amount of episodes. They won't really have enough time to tell a proper "separation/reunion" story. Not with the amount of depth that such a story would need, considering that it already takes a lot to convince people they'd separate in the first place.
Anyway, thank you so much for reading! I can't even say how much it means.
@ean_nae Yay! Someone else who liked "Ancestors"! (I know plenty of other people liked that episode, but I felt like I was an on island alone on that one. Then again, I'm Puerto Rican, so I should be ancestrally used to the whole notion of islands and solitude)
@DenisefromNY Thank you! And enjoy the rest of yours! Also, is it silly that I had no idea what the "S" rating stood for until I just read your comment? I never really thought about it before, but it seems obvious now.
@BATBVINCATfan Great suggestion with finding out more background on the Reynolds line -- in particular, why Rebecca even had the gem, and why it's a Reynolds artifact.
I, too, would love some James Bond-ish Vincent. Just go full-out homage. I think that could be really fun. So many possibilities!
