Way more categories to discuss but I'll do a recap over the weekend.
Big Brother
I'm doing everything in my power to stay strong and NOT purchase the live feeds but damn these houseguests are making it tough. Lets jump right to the POV meeting at the end of the show. What happened? The show ended with Britney speaking but we don't know what she said. Zach was obviously freaking out after he replaced Britney. Can you believe that Devin did that? The guy is out of his mind! I didn't order the live feeds but I came thiiiiiiis close. Okay…breathe Kristy breathe, go to bullets.
  • As much as I want Devin out of the game, he really is good TV. He's truly cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs, but so are so many of these other players. 
  • To quote Frankie, "why is everyone telling the truth?" Don't these people know that if you want to win Big Brother you have to lie? 
  • What's with all these guys hugging and proclaiming their love for one another? I mean I'm all for men expressing their feelings, but is this odd to anyone else but me? 
  • I wonder if Zach will be annoyed that every time they put his name on screen it always says "unemployed" underneath it. I bet his parents aren't thrilled. 
  • I seriously love Caleb, I love him. 
  • Why don't they use disposable plates and cups? It seems like there are always a million dishes in the sink and I don't believe there is a dishwasher is the house. Maybe some Dixie products? 
  • Are you all still mesmerized by the birdhouses? I am.
Finding Carter
I can't remember the last time there was a show on MTV that I actually wanted to watch. When I saw the trailer for Finding Carter, I thought it had a unique premise and that will always draw me in. Basically, Carter got arrested for screwing around with her friends and found out that the Mom she loves isn't her Mom but her kidnapper. She was abducted when she was 3 years old and has been Laurie's daughter, happily, for 13 years. Just like that she's with her birth parents, twin sister and younger brother. She's messed up from this news, the birth Mom's a cop and obsessed with finding the kidnapper which is tough on Carter and there's just all these interesting layers to the story. I recognized Elizabeth, the birth Mom, from Lost, but man she needs some work done. She's not aging well.  Her Mom is played by Elyse Keaton herself, Meredith Baxter Birney. The cute boys all need haircuts and Grant seems to have trouble breathing and acting. The Mom's having an affair, the Dad's secretly writing a book about "Finding Carter" and one of the coolest things, MTV tells you the name and artist of any song playing in the show. Love that feature. Everyone needs that one!!! Season Pass for me. 

-Orphan Black Season 3 is a GO! Of course it is!!! Tatiana Maslany rules. 

-I don't watch The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, but now that I know that Brian Williams not only watches but is obsessed...I may have to get on board. Check him out on Seth Meyers. I love this guy!
