—Ok, here we go again. At least we don’t get Kunio this time.

—Yuri is the best. I never get why she’s hanging around someone as lousy as Lady Sachi.

Lady Sachi on Keima’s turnaround, and the only time I’ve ever agreed with her.

—Man, what is the deal with putting your bffs that are all comatose drunk into cabs by themselves and hoping for the best? Particularly after one of you almost got abducted and raped that way?

—The landlord roping them into running the booth for free rent sounds implausible until I remember the time in school the ceiling of our rental house caved in, and the landlord got us to clean it all up for a month’s rent.

—MC is stone cold, making dates right in front of two guys who like her.

—Wow, harsh that MC picked up the special Nanyami doll even though she didn’t give a crap about it compared to everyone else.

—Oh nice of MC to totally lie to Itaru about Toya being a nutcase so she doesn’t have to be indebted to him for saving her…LIKE HE DID.

Itaru speaks for me.

—Basically MC can forgive and forget anything you’ve done to her unless your name rhymes with “bitaru.”

—GDI, I cant believe I screwed up the data hunt AGAIN.

—Ok, at this point, I might just go ahead and bag getting the early clear bonuses and just try to redo it the next time there’s a data hunt for me to botch.

Itaru’s expression at having the fortune teller glom onto him kills me.

—Well Joe is a nutcase, but at least the Nanyami doll went to someone who really appreciates it.

Or maybe he’d just think you have shockingly bad judgement LIKE THE REST OF US.

—Awesome that she’s now going around pulling cold hot dogs out of people’s hands so she can get the special love fortune.

—Oh Well, Kota was kind of grumpy anyway. I bet he’ll get a route someday.

—Ok, on to the specific routes. As usual, we’ll start with our least favorite and work up.

Oh honey, you are about eight short.

—Holy mackerel, she stole Sotaro’s breakfast! MC is like your nightmare roommate.

—Now she’s giving Sotaro’s breakfast to Keima and I just can’t anymore.

BUT HE…AND YOU…HUMAN TRAFFICKING…oh, forget it.

Oh good. Off to Germany with Keima and Lady Sachi. What could possibly go wrong.

—Ok, the fact that MC is letting this dude who probably stole her wallet front her money for gambling his so bad.

—The fact that he now wants her to sex off her debts to him is a surprise to only MC.

If there was any justice, MC’s first female slap would be now.

—Wow, I took so long with this, they actually started up another data hunt already.

—Ugh, can’t decide whether I like Joe or Toya least.

—Joe in whatever backwater village MC is from feels like it should turn out like Eva Gabor’s character in “Green Acres.”

—Well he acquitted himself like a normal person, but now he just seems like a totally different guy, since Joe’s always been marked by weirdly extravagant speech and actions.

—On to Toya. Maybe it’s just me, but if you JUST got frightened by a guy thinking that he was so mad he might let loose and beat you, maybe you don’t go along with it when he says he won’t let you go home and now you have to live with him.

—I always wonder if this is an actual Japanese thing or just a mechanism of fiction that people can decide to go stay at someone’s house or a hotel that same night with no preparation or anything.

—Like, I can’t stay somewhere overnight without about two hours of packing and a 30” duffel bag.

—Again, It seems like she went with him almost 30% because she really likes cake.

—I like that her big confession to him is “I love you…r cakes.”

—Wow, just read that getting the early clear data for both halves requires like 48 extra tickets, which I don’t have.

—Guess we’re letting this data hunt slide by as well.

—Back with Haruichi and his perpetual Yakuza girlfriend-threatening rivals.

—I feel like MC is, in the hysteria of the moment, overlooking the part where Haruichi said he had his henchmen investigate and report back on her living situation.

—Now he wants her to not go to work and just stay and sleep in his room for some indeterminate amount of time while he hunts down some threatening guys she hasn’t seen for herself yet, and now it’s sounding like HE’s kidnapped her.

—Asako has just told MC that she’s been living with the Mamiyas for forty years now, and I’m expecting her to say she was just staying until they hunted down their rivals too.

—Ok, I get that Haruichi is used to faction fighting within his own clan, but he seems pretty blasé about the fact that his MOM practically put a hit out on him.

—Ok Itaru. Try not to make me sad about MC’s treatment of you this time.

—Wow, she got all mad at him and I don’t even know why. Because the server dropped a glass? And he was nice about it?

—Maybe MC has been around so many of these nutbars, she forgot what a reasonable response was.

—Oh good. Now she got him maimed because she ran out into traffic upset for reasons unknown to either Itaru or me.

—Oh my God, he got amnesia, which is really the only way any of this can end happily for Itaru.

—If Yuri got divorced and then married Itaru, I would feel like they had a chance for a good life.

—Now I have no idea why she’s moping around so much. When she was all he thought about, she found him repulsive, and now that he doesn’t remember her, she’s bummed.

—Maybe make up your mind next time, MC.

—Notice that at no time does she tell him or anyone else that he got hit by the car because SHE darted in front of it like a dummy.

—No thank you or anything, plus she acts all sullen at him like it’s his fault he got brain damage saving her. He really is better off this way.

—Now she is so concerned about him, she’s letting Sotaro buy her cake, like she’s the one who got hit by a car.

DING DING DING DING
We have a wiiiiinner…

—Oh so now after she lied to him about him ever caring about her, he has decided to accept his memory loss and live a fruitful life. Clearly, she can’t tolerate that and is going to run after him like a banshee to ruin his life some more.

—Oh my God, she gave him ANOTHER concussion.

—Dude is going to die before she figures out what she wants.

—So it ends with her having beaten Itaru’s obsessive love for her (and probably a subdural hematoma) back into him again, so she can be happy wielding complete power over him while continuing to deny him the slightest signs of affection.

—In the life of MC, we call this “Tuesday.”

Spoiler Thoughts on “The Maze Runner”

Spoiler thoughts:

  • Sitting in the second row makes following all the quick camera movement a little disorienting.
  • If they all know everyone who arrives has amnesia, maybe their welcoming ceremony shouldn’t include pummeling.
  • It’s like “Lord of the Flies,” except if everyone had their own stylist.
  • Thank goodness Thomas doesn’t bruise easily, or he would be one big hematoma by now.
  • I’m going to guess that Thomas remembers stuff subconsciously about their situation, because if I couldn’t remember anything, I think I’d be ok with just getting the lay of the land for awhile.
  • Hey, the kid from “Nanny McFee!”
  • Hey, Asian guy!
  • Ok, this seems like it would have been more effective if a bunch of them had run in immediately and tried to drag them out.
  • Poor Minho–he gets stuck with every undesirable task.
  • Well it’s a good thing we already established all these guys are swell people, otherwise an unconscious girl in a camp with nothing but teenage guys would be pre-tty creepy.
  • Their penal system leaves a little to be desired.
  • So does their medical care.
  • I wonder which kid showed up and said “I’ll take care of the haircuts.”
  • Watching Thomas and Minho run through the maze makes me think this is one film it would have actually killed me to be in. #ShouldGoTreadmilling
  • If you can climb to the top of the maze walls, and you have an actual map of the maze, it seems like you should be able to see outside the maze.
  • Given that the whole story hinges on no one remembering, I’m a little worried for anyone who gets their memory back and isn’t O’Brien
  • Unimpressed with the contributions made by the Lone Girl.
  • Yeah, maybe we should save the antidote for if someone actually needs it…oh…never mind.
  • Interesting how all the smaller/ethnic kids decide to take a powder, and mostly the big white dudebros are the ones who like the status quo.
  • Ok, somebody better save Minho, because ain’t no one gonna get out without him.
  • If Thomas got his memory back, it seems as though this part shouldn’t be that much of a surprise to him.
  • I am really not clear on Gally’s motivation right here.
  • Minho:  Maze Runner MVP.
  • Oh, what the what?
  • Man, if they don’t make a sequel, I’m going to be pretty irked.  Like “The Golden Compass” irked.

Good:

  • Dylan O’Brien (obv.)
  • Asian guy (Ki Hong Lee) gets a big part in a movie!  Where he’s not a nerd or a ninja!
  • All the sequences shot in the maze.

Bad:

  • What was the girl even there for?
  • Patrick McGoohan wants his ending back.

Meh:

  • Predictable sequences shot outside the maze.
  • Dystopian teen survivalist stories beginning to feel a little old hat.

Teen Wolf, Season Four, Episode Twelve: “Smoke and Mirrors.”

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • If Kira can shoot electricity out her hands, I don’t know that she needs to be wandering around in the dark all the time.
  • Kate’s whole story doesn’t really jell that great.  She came to the temple where the Berserkers were all happy to see her because she was the Bone Woman?  What kind of qualifications did she fill for that?
  • Braeden’s not ok with Derek dying?  Honey, you are not alone.
  • The true horror is that apparently no one in Beacon Hills has seen Star Wars.
  • Peter is proof that if you act confidently enough, and look good enough in a v-neck, people will flock to you as a leader no matter how evil/crazy you are.
  • Oh hey, Derek gave the faux triskelion to Liam!  Because it worked so well for Kate, before.
  • Man, I wouldn’t be Mason for anything.
  • Yeah, Tamlyn Tomita’s back!
  • Ok, granted I’ve never been in that situation, but I’d think the gaping stab wound in her stomach would be painful enough to start the healing process without adding more pain on top.
  • Stiles is clearly the better Watcher here.  It’s a wonder Scott made it through, if this is all Derek had up his sleeves.
  • Also, why is Liam only killing Derek?  Did Stiles get enough abuse last season that he had an extra “not be killed” card for this one?
  • Here’s a thought:  If you roll up on an ancient evil temple that you already know is filled with evil-y things, maybe look out the window before you open the car door.
  • Well if that wasn’t the weirdest in-show commercial ever.
  • Sheriff Stalinski is the awesomest, as the only person to figure out that just repeating ineffectual measures isn’t that good a defense against the Berserkers.
  • Hey, another fight where everybody tries to slap fight a Berserker while somehow forgetting that they can turn into supernatural creatures.
  • I think this might have been more effective a scene if Scott had had his curse broken by his relationship to Stiles, rather than Liam.
  • Ok, what the what?
  • No seriously, what?!
  • What did wolf!Derek! do to Kate?  Lick her roughly?  She seemed all mauled, but there was no blood on Derek, so…
  • Also, hi nude!Derek! How did he get out into the bushes from where he was sitting around dying earlier?  Was getting stabbed to death with a bone knife part of the evolutionary process?  Was actual death part of the evolutionary process?
  • Kate is shocked, shocked that her bro shot her.  I am not so sure this should have been that much of a surprise.
  • I love Liam’s expression when Peter throws the table at him:  “HDY!”
  • Kate’s dialogue here is reminiscent of Mother Gothel in “Tangled:”  “Great.  Now I’m the bad guy!”
  • Well these Mexican hunters certainly turned out to be less totally crazy than they seemed in the first episode.
  • It is convenient that Tamlyn married a guy who is not only a history teacher, but who can also carve obsidian as a hobby.
  • Eichen House:  A franchise from the fine people who brought you Arkham Asylum.
  • Anyone else but me think it might be a mistake to double bunk two of your worst evils together?
  • Also LOL on how everyone thinks the creepiest thing in the world is looking at an eye.

Teen Wolf, Season Four, Episode 11: “A Promise to the Dead”

Spoiler thoughts:

  • Fun fact:  Drilling a hole into your own forehead won’t make an eye grow there, either.
  • Still don’t get how broke the McCalls are all of a sudden.  RN’s do pretty well, and Mrs. McCall can apparently work ER or OR.
  • Mason is either the nicest guy ever, or getting set up to be the Biggest Bad.
  • Doesn’t Malia’s dad wonder where she goes every night?  And morning?  And when she comes back all covered in monster blood?
  • Derek, apparently the first werewolf to ever consider that real estate and banks might be more reliable than a subterranean vault under the high school.
  • Eichen House is the worst place ever.  If you take your family member there, it better be because they ate at least 5 people, or they are not gonna make it.
  • Hey, way to not kill somebody, Peter.
  • The real tragedy of Teen Wolf:  Scott McCall has never seen Star Wars.
  • Secondmost real tragedy of Teen Wolf:  Derek doesn’t have a TV.
  • This is not the best fighting we’ve seen from Scott and Kira.  If she couldn’t dent the thing with an actual sword last time, why would she think slapping a berserker with a chain would do anything? Why not try electrocuting it?
  • Kate wants to know why Scott is so special.  If he fought like this all the time, we’d want to know too.
  • I feel like Parrish had a number of options here, and enlisting the help of someone who’s been bleeding out for who knows how long to help him unbend a rebar was maybe not the most intuitive of them.
  • So, is the benefactor thing all done then?  There effectively was no benefactor?  Nobody benefited except the assassins who killed a couple low-levels and then went back to their lives with a few mil?
  • I would think if all his friends started missing Scott, and Kate shows up with an extra berserker who clearly has their skull belted on, they might get a little suspicious.

Teen Wolf, Season Four, Episode Ten: “Monstrous”

Spoiler thoughts:

  • I feel like these Buddhist werewolves have maybe sublimated not only their violent tendencies, but also their self-preservation tendencies.
  • Liam might be the smartest werewolf of all.
  • Oddly enough, a hospital might be one of the last places you’d find a cassette player, since no one wants to bring their nice players to get ripped off there.
  • So Kira flew back from wherever they took her Mom, and immediately went in the pouring rain to go check out Beacon Hill High’s sport’s stadium in case there were werewolves in peril?
  • Argent looks like he’s raiding the Land Pavilion at EPCOT.
  • So far, losing all his superpowers seems to be the best thing that ever happened to Derek.
  • This is why people should have private hospital rooms.
  • The Desert Wolf!  Thank God Peter wasn’t sharing all his thoughts about her.
  • Oh Lydia’s Mom is never gonna get to sell this house now.
  • Peter loses some of his intimidation prowess without his v-necks.
  • Sad that Sheriff Stalinski wasn’t stationed in some other American towns, where apparently anybody can shoot anyone without thinking twice about it.
  • This girl has the worst survival instincts of any werewolf ever.
  • Oh Peter.
