Fast forward to being in Bahrain... Teh Bear and I have "date nights" regularly, and its so ridiculously cheesy and awesome. Judge me, I don't care. I <3 the cheesy. After a few months of getting used to the time change and the schedule craziness, and taking advantage of all the moments we could, we

Sometimes I struggle with the effects they use in the series. In the first episode, I couldn't get past the CG effects. The green screen backgrounds, the cheesy transitions. In the 2nd and 3rd episodes, I was pretty sure they were actually trying to create an anime with the obscene amount of pressurized blood that ejected itself from each wound. Now, we're at episode 10 and as the plot line has finally developed, I want to finish the rest of the season despite the eyeball I saw dangling from a face that had been beaten to a pulp tonight. As if all the "blood" wasn't enough, the eyeball was definitely overkill. My comment was, really, was that necessary?
Despite the grossly over exaggerated bloodiness of the show, and the effects that make my brain scream, "HOKEY!"... There's of course the one other reason to keep watching. Everyone in the show is getting laid more than I am right now, a girl can live vicariously through her tv right? Oh yes, I just said that in this public venue.

Yes, this pic is big on purpose. Mmmm. Very glad I have my own blue eyed deliciousness (beard included) coming to visit very soon... :)

So, I'm interested to see how the rest of season 1 plays out, even with the CG effects, that haven't really grown on me, and all the gore, that sometimes makes me have to tell Teh Bear to tell me when I can uncover my eyes. I'm definitely curious how they deal with an absence of Whitfield in season 2.
PS. In the spirit of tv shows, maybe literally.. News is going around that Brothers & Sisters on ABC is getting cancelled. I NEED this to be a lie. That is all.
