    What's the Avatar Above You Thinking #14 (Finally)

    I’m microscopic. And potentially the child of a lego figurine and a gingerbread man.

    Well that’s it, birth is not disgusting. It’s a natural function of the body. I mean you could make a song about how disgusting eating is, what happens to food in your mouth and then in your digestive system. You could say that any bodily function is disgusting. But why? Well, I just don’t have any chemistry with this show at all. But it’s so fun and adorable to see you guys obsess over it, like every Helena or Buckwheat post I see is a CXG reference

    Okay, I can see you guys liked the finale. I thought the whole season was sort of a pointless circle. It seemed like we were going to get somewhere but we didn’t, after all. We went back to that same starting point. Something bad, deep and meaningful happened and we are expecting Rebecca to change. I got the feeling that they are running out ideas about what to do with the story. This is why Rebecca kept running in circles, very little was done with Paula or Nathaniel, and literally nothing was done with Valencia or Josh or Heather. Darryl’s baby business was handled very stupidly with his being gone for the time when Heather was struggling with pregnancy and only being present for the shower and a birthing party. The one thing that could have given the finale substance would have been if Trent had actually died. Right now this is just another version of Rebecca did something terrible and she barely got away with it, so now she had an awakening and she promised to be a better person. I really think it’s time for me to leave this ship and tune in for the next season. Oh and I still can’t decide how I feel about the birth song what the message was trying to be.

    Oh I watched the latest episode of this too... I mean... I can’t decide if the Valencia or the Heather-Darryl plot is more ridiculous. Definitely not the Trent one and that says a lot about the others. The cat song switched the rage button in my head again, I should have fastforwarded it. I hear the next is the last episode of the season. I’ll be curious to see how they end this marvellous season.

  7. I finally caught up with the show. Wow, this season sucked big time. In a nutshell: -the female characters are all ridiculous. -bjorn’s adventures were absolutely boring and meaningless. -hvitserk’s turn on Ubbe is absolutely unfounded -I’m not sure what’s the point in introducing characters who get five minutes of screentime. And I’m not sure why I’m expected to feel bad about them. -weirdly, it was Astrid whose storyline had the most integrity. -Floki is a waste of screentime and completely detached from the main plot. His storyline has no purpose or direction, it’s only reason for existence is to keep Gustaf Skarsgard in the loop. -Lagertha and Floki should both be dead. -Magret or whatever her name is is worse than the Chinese girlfriend Ragnar had and that’s saying something. -I keep forgetting the Saxons exist. -it is weird that the rightful heir would stand aside for his bastard brother at the request of his cheating mother, but okay. -Aethelwulf’s death was the lamest tv death I can remember. -the only scenes with actual content are the ones between Ivar and Jonathan Rhys Meyers -episode ten was a weird editing choice -king Harald was the only character I had any sympathy for (except for Torvi’s youngest kid who just stands in the background and stares, asking what the actual fuck is going on) -I enjoyed the old English/Swedish pieces of dialogue. game of thrones taught Michael Hirst, too, that It’s always cooler to yell in a foreign language. -it’s quite funny that hvitserk said rollo couldn’t come because of his many duties, and then he showed up anyway. I guess Gisla told him to do the shopping first. -the promo for episode 11 looked cool, cray cray Ivar is the only thing that’s still interesting about the show. -also, what happens when the plot catches up with the Last Kingdom? Because that’s likely to happen next season or so.

    The show is still repetitive and boring and makes less and less sense. You don’t just become the manager of three diners two weeks into your new job. You don’t just convince your ex colleagues to turn against their boss who is at this point really not that awful to them just because you are loud enough. At least ONE of all those people should have told her to go home and watch tv and walk away. You don’t just invite yourself over to a person’s hot tub with whom you had two minutes of interaction two years ago when you attempted to frame them as a thief. You don’t just take a three mile step ahead in your career and decide to get pregnant two minutes later. You don’t just go to therapy and lie to your therapist AND ask your fellow patients to also lie to their therapist for you. What level of fucked up is that? And the entire episode was a reprise. Rebecca trying to screw someone through a legal case and rallying unwilling people to the cause that actually only serves her selfish interest. Card played. Rebecca having impulsive sex. Card played. Darryl failing to get a surrogate/donor. Card played. Song. Card played. The one thing I haven’t seen before was the Heather storyline. It was just surreal, but at least it kept me watching. All in all, I didn’t hate this, but I still keep asking myself why I watch it and where it’s going, because frankly, I don’t see a purpose. Are we just going to go round and round over and over again to represent rebecca’s struggle? I still get that this might be realistic and represent the message they want to send about mental illness. But it’s still a very very bad storytelling strategy.

    Would you rather?

    Stannis. Renly had literally no claim And the only reason the Tyrells supported him was because of Loras. And I say this as a person who absolutely hates Stannis as a person and a character. Would you rather try to keep Robert on the throne and make him a better ruler or plot his replacement with a Targaryen you don’t actually know would make a better ruler?

    They are actually pretty inconsistent with quite a few things but it’s okay for the most part, as it doesn’t usually have to do with Rebecca’s main plot. (Like, a season ago Lourdes was asking Josh to MOVE BACK IN with them and now she is throwing him out like he’s been clinging to her for year even though she hated it, that felt a little off for me too) It’s really nice how Helena turns into a die-hard fan who defends the show no matter what when it comes to CXG that’s adorable.

    Also, Rebecca is really not worried about being in therapy, not working and having 30 scones in her bank account. It was much easier when she was just rich. If they are going to acknowledge that her money runs out, they kinda need to deal with the issues this causes. Or just don’t acknowledge it and pretend Rebecca never ran out of her New York job money or has other funds like family inheritance or anything.

    Yeah, you’re right. Whi-jo does indeed have the most screentime and story from the characters I complained about. Kinda because he’s been part of the one and only living subplot, the Darryl baby project, and now he’s being rolled up into the Nathaniel plot which might be going somewhere now that it isn’t centered around sex and cuddling with Rebecca. Yeah, that is established again and again whenever we discuss male characters or their actors. We just never ever agree and of course, we never did such. We would never look at hot men in underwear and drool over the television set.

    The scone thing was a lol moment, Heather and Valencia seem non-existent to me. So does josh and whi-jo at this point. The one thing I have to give this episode is the strip dance of the guys. Nathaniel looked out of place, but the joshes look like a dream like let’s combine who-jo’s arms and josh’s abs and thighs and damn that’s perfection right there for yah. the song was pretty flat and annoying though.

    I don’t like this season. I get that it’s a new approach to discussing mental illness, and I’m sure people appreciate that it’s (most likely) a realistic and more serious way of handling the topic than in the previous seasons. That’s a good and respectable thing. I however kinda sorta watch this for the questionable entertainment value and I’m saying that without any intention of offending anybody. And I’m not particularly entertained. There has not been a progress in the plot since Rebecca started therapy and the subplots have basically vanished. What I see is Rebecca doing the same thing over and over in every episode. She thinks she learns something and it turns out she didn’t, she just goes back and forth back and forth. That would be okay if there was another plot supporting the story, but there isn’t. Darryl’s baby crusade is the same back and forth dance and frankly it’s annoying. Darryl is generally very annoying. Nothing happens to Valencia and Heather, they have had zero screen time in the past episodes, White Josh and Josh also have no plot they are just hanging in mid air and the only thing Paula has done was the stunt with the first donor. I get that the show is about everybody’s being crazy and obsessed and the statement that there’s no easy way out of that and it’s a whirlpool that just takes them round and round and round through the same circles. That’s a respectable and noble message. But again, without trying to offend anybody, dramaturgically it’s just boring and/or annoying.

    Would you rather?

    I feel like I have to say King Robert. I wonder if he would hit on me. Ew. Still, King Robert and not Tyrion. Not a fan of Tyrion. Would you rather be married to Stannis or Walder Frey?

    Would you rather?

    Lollys? Would you rather not have soap or heating? (And in this medieval scenario you would live in the North, not in Dorne or something so you could get away with not having heating, you need heating)

    I still have a love-hate relationship with this show... I mean it’s good to have something idiotic to watch in bed, but man, just what f was this...? Where’s Heather or Valencia or Sam (or whatever is Paula’s husband’s name) or Hector or White Josh or any semi-sane character?
