- See the stars they're shining bright.
Blah Post is Blah
-RL is being dickish and I kind of want to punch it in the face. I've been genuinely sick the last week (first time in like a year or so), and it's making me slightly miserable. I'm also going to try to stop or at least cut back on how much soda I drink as of tomorrow, which is going to be a bit of a struggle. Oh, the unpleasantness.
-After a few days of doing well with the flist, I'm predictably behind once more. Will try to catch up from Wednesday tomorrow in the a.m.
-CBS is sucking out loud this year. First, they cut Cold Case's budget during its last season, (a show *heavily* dependent on music licensing), and as a result, some of the regular cast members had to sit out a few eps a piece. Then it was announced it wasn't coming back next year despite the fact that it's remained a solid performer for the network. It had a good, long run and was admittedly past its prime, but it would've been nice to have gone into this last season with a real budget and the opportunity for the writers to give all the characters/arcs definitive resolution. Ah well, there's always the TNT re-runs.
Worse though, is the hatchet job they're doing to Criminal Minds. Out of the frickin' blue, they're firing one of the actresses and reducing the screentime of another, who is also leaving at the end of this next year (whether that's the network or her, I'm not sure. She's been vocal and pissed about the subject on Twitter, so it wouldn't surprise me if she just told them she was out of there after this season was over).
It's absolute bullshit, and I'm glad the rest of the cast seems outraged for the two actresses. I know how networks are, but this really is such a shock. Criminal Minds is a popular show and for them to just bust up the team dynamic that's worked so well seems stupid beyond belief. Not to mention, there are four guys and three women on the team currently. For two of the women to be cut is so faily, especially for a show that had always written great, strong females. Granted, that's the network's fail and not the writers, but still. Just.....argh. FU, CBS.
-Off to watch Futurama and then to sleep (if I don't boil in my hot-ass bedroom). Night, all. <3
