New York City, Here We Come

Before I even begin watching, I just want to say that thus far I am sorely underwhelmed by the girls of cycle 10. They are mostly ugly and generally stupid. (You know, more so than normal). Yet, I have only seen one episode and in it they were left to their own devices in regards to hair and makeup and good Lord how I love the makeover show and why is that not the episode that is on tonight? (Holy mother of run-on sentences. I do feel run-on sentences go with the style of ANTM).

So, let's watch and see if they get prettier.

Off the cuff notes on the top 14:
Kimberly looks like a smushed Reese Witherspoon.
The plus size model has an oddly small head
Dominique looks like she is from Woodbridge. She terrifies me.

Kim makes herself an easy target. She needs to stop making comments about how people think she is a dumb blonde. I'd like her better if she kept her mouth shut.

The Somali girl has a high potential for getting annoying with her need to profess how strong she is. I get that she has been through a lot, but I don't feel I need to hear it everytime I see her. Plus, damn, she has not one bit of tact. I think it stems from her insecurity. She needs to settle down.

Why does Anya talk so strangely? I have never heard of anyone from Hawaii talking like her.

Claire is 24... really...?

First runway show is for Badgley Mischka. Nice! I love Badgley Mischka. I was in Saks once and saw this gorgeous dress on a rack all by its lonesome in the middle of an empty area. I wondered why it was all alone. I looked at the dress. It was a hand beaded (all over), cocktail length dress for $30,000. Yeah.

Omigod, can I say that I just got a little giddy when Paulina Porizkova came out? She was my favorite when I was little. I thought she was the epitome of beautiful. She still is. I still like her. Especially because she just called Dominique a transvestite. Oh, she is harsh! I DIG it.

I am looking forward to the throw down between Fatima (the Somalian) and Marvita.

Aimee looks like the girl from My Girl (Anna Chlumsky).

The throwdown was a let down. Sigh. But I was right about the reasons for Fatima's behavior.

The marquee Tyra mail is funny because it forces the girls to read

Kim? always? talks? like? this? And? I? may? have? to? go? find? her? and? glue? her? mouth? shut?

Tyra looka like the doll she played in Life Size.

I like Lauren. I hope she figures it out a bit. Why would you want to model when you are so not really in that mind-set?

Some things they must change: the top knot on Dominiques head in addition to her frightening orange hue. Speaking of orange hue, change the color of Fatima's hair.

Um, Kim is an idiot. What are these girls doing here? Kim does not like fashion? Lauren is an awkward stick. Oh! Okay, bye Kim. Guess I don't have to glue her mouth shut. Good for her for getting out when she realized the modelling world was not for her.

Bye bye Atalya. I am glad she is gone. Based on the two pictures we have seen, she only has one face for the cameras. Boring.


Girls Ain't Nothing But Trouble

Greatest opening dream sequence ever! Allison was having a silent movie dream in the vein of
Villian: "You must pay the rent!"
Lady in distress: "I can't pay the rent!"
Hero: "I'll pay the rent!"
Well done! The little one who plays the youngest of Dubois girls was laughing but they did a pretty good job of acting melodramatic.

I really like this show. A big part of it is the family dynamic aspect. Allison and Joe have been lauded (along with the couple from Friday Night Lights) as the most realistic couple on TV. Additionally, the characters in and of themselves are so real and multi-dimensional. I am not in the mood to wax poetic on why they are, so you'll just have to take my word for it.

In this episode, Joe has to deal with some of his eldest's teenager type actions, like asking to be dropped off a block from school, and having magical access to money. I am writing this as I watch, which is harder than it seems! I'm looking at the title and wondering how it will play in. The lead suspect of the case Allison is working on, has two daughters. Joe is dealing with Arielle. Are ALL girls trouble? I'd like to think I'm an angel.

Huh, I think I may be psychic, too! (Which is going to make my boss so happy as he seems to believe it is part of my job description). I said angel and Allison drew a sort of angel/fairy on her pad (okay, so it was more fairy than angel... Maybe I only have ESP2).

Ooh, Patricia Arquette needs to be fitted for a better bra. She's sporting the double set of boobs. (Overflow ain't purty). Man, she's got massive hooters. I never noticed before. I do love her. I think she's great in this role. I apologize for judging her for the spillage.

Unfinished ending to this episode. Hmph.
