Pretty Little Liars & Mean Alex Mack

Spoilers if you haven’t seen the Pretty Little Liars episode “The Mirror Has 3 Faces”!!!! (Ye’ve been warned…)

So, Ezra is NOT the father (cue Maury music and dance), but he was MAD, rightfully so. How horrible was it for Alex Mack to just be all, “Sawwie, gotta go!” when he was like, “You made me fall in love with him.” HOW RUDE, ALEX MACK! (Also: how awesome is it that she’s on THIS show AND Mad Men? Well done, Alex Mack, well done). But seriously, that was LOW. And we were supposed to be creeped out when Ezra was just staring into the darkened window/his dark reflection when he called Aria, right? It wasn’t just because this is like the first time I’m watching the show at night and not during broad daylight the next day? (It was on Hulu at 10pm Honolulu time. That’s what’s up!!). There are people out there who think Ezra is on the A-Team, right? (And those who think Aria, but seriously y’all, Aria ain’t bright enough for that….) Or is this going to be a creepy fake-out like Byron was?

Does Ezra expect Aria to get back with him? I was seriously expecting him to say to Alex Mack, “I dumped Aria for a fake son?!?!?!” But alas, that would have been too on-the-nose I suppose….I like Jake but I don’t know if Aria does. Does she even like Jake?

I seriously expected Caleb and Hanna to break up. I mean, how else is he going to do Ravenswood? (Seriously, what is that show going to be about? Is it going to be all grey like that one episode!?!?!?!) So that was a bit of a surprise that they just started making out after their fight outside Mrs. Hasting’s office (where has Mr. Hastings been during all of this?!??!)

Was anyone scared of Mrs. Hastings when she was talking to Mona? Because I wasn’t. I’m more afraid of my own mom, sorry (grrrl is intimidating!). But poor man’s Mariska Hargitay just didn’t feel sassy and badass enough. A jail cell ooooh nooooooo. And she fell right into the trap, didn’t she? Not a very good lawyer, eh?

So Wren (is he even a doctor? That was on the FBI’s board, remember? Where has Young FBI Guy been lately? And his partner, Ms. Frizzle?) is incohoots with Red Coat. Do we really believe Red Coat is CeCe? CeCe didn’t seem very smart….But Wren? Why? What does he get out of this? Is he getting paid? And Mona knows? WHAT IS MONA’S GAME?

I was HELLA creeped out during the basement scene (totally still staying there ewwwwwwww), and when Mrs. D said that Aly and CeCe used to put on each other’s personalities. WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Toby’s mom and the Alzeheimer’s Dr. Palmer: BOOOOOOOOORING. Let’s get on with it already. And Mrs. D was totally lying right? Or not telling the whole truth? Dr. Palmer was going to remember that one time Mrs. D came in? Yeeaaaaa, right.


So, CeCe is doing all this because of the frat party where she got kicked out of school? Did we see that party and I just forgot it? No, seriously, did we? Even Aria barely remembers it. “That was almost 3 years ago.” Come on, Aria, how many frat parties have you gone to since?

Also: wasn’t Aly’s room also where Maya lived? WHY DID NO ONE MENTION THAT? Isn’t that more/equally upsetting for Emily? WHAT ABOUT MAYA????

Overall: creeptastic but no answers except for Cece (but even?) and I’m just as confused and mad as ever. Le sigh.


Moone Boy

If you haven’t watched Moone Boy on Hulu, do it now. You will not be disappointed. It’s hilarious, heart-warming in an off-kilter way, and just plain fun. Also: Irish people! (Who only got drunk in one episode? I’ll allow it).

Chris O’Dowd is Sean Murphy (good Irish name), the imaginary friend of Martin Moone, a weird little bugger who’s 12, has 3 older sisters (shares a room with one of them), and oh right, has an imaginary friend. Chris O’Dowd wrote it, and since everyone is Irish and it takes place in the late 80s/early 90s, I assume it’s based on his life: so Chris O’Dowd was a creative, weird little boy? Doesn’t matter, it’s funny.

I love the dad, Liam: he’s attractive in an older, slightly unmanly type of way. He tries to be the big man in the house, but as told in one of the episodes where he bonds with other fathers in town (they pretend to fish and play poker, in a predictable, yet funny moment), who have terrible children, his wife and daughter don’t respect him as much as they probably should. Also, he makes signs for a living? Sure.

Some of the funniest moments of the 6 episodes are when we see Martin interacting with Sean Murphy through the eyes of other people. He just looks like a crazy kid talking to himself. And in the finale (which was hilarious), dancing to a banjo that Sean Murphy is playing as they’re dressed like Girl Guides (don’t ask, just go with it, it’s hilarious).

This show could have just been a silly little British comedy, but instead I thought it was hilarious and looked forwarding to watching it every week and really wish there were more episodes. The parents are great in that they’re good parents but (as witnessed in the finale), they also lie to their kids: I mean, I know my parents have lied to me, your parents have lied to you…it’s just funny to see.

And the title song is fun: Where’s me jumper? Where’s me jumper? Oh no.

I also really like when they say “fekkin”. Gonna use it meself I think.

All in all: can’t wait for more Moone Boy! Go watch it!
