Flashforward continued...

I was so occupied these last few days that I have only just realized that Flashforward started again last week with a two hour premiere! I sort of wish they never stopped because I was a bit confused with their situation, not having watched the show for two months. Timbaland had a cameo at the ending of Episode 3: Blowback as an officer in charge of storage. Lol, I wonder if he was bored or something with producing.

Anyway, I realized I skipped to Episode 13 without watching the premiere (no wonder I was so confused! This episode was really dreary and Aaron (Tracy's dad) suddenly got possessed by the dad from hostage thriller movie 'Taken' (2008) and went Rambo on Jericho operatives. I am getting tired frankly, from the really slow character development. Janis (Christine Woods) and Bryce (Zachary Knighton) are my favorites on the show but they hardly get any screen time in Ep 13. I really hope they step it up soon because I hate to see a great story go to waste. Sometimes a little development goes a long way.

I feel sad because I felt the same way with 4400, before it ultimately got canceled. There's this nagging feeling that tells you, it's not enough! They need more DRAMA, surprises and yeah, sex appeal helps too (it worked with Vampire Diaries, CSI, True Blood, Gossip Girl and any other successful TV show in history). If people stop caring about the show, the show will get canceled. Unless you have a very dedicated fan base who will do anything for you (e.g. Chuck) and Flashforward has failed to make anyone care about any of the characters yet.

With dipping ratings and actors that have been cast in new TV shows next season, the future for Flashforward looks bleak, which is a bummer. Like when they canceled '4400', American TV shows tend to spring this on 'ya sometimes. I'll just enjoy the ride for now, and bask in the accents of Jack Davenport and Dominic Monaghan. :)

On another note,

Vampire Diaries is back better than ever! Hahahhaha, I think it'll be a long time yet till I ever tire of this show. And I'm hooked on KBS' variety TV show Invincible Youth!!! This show gives me stitches. I adore Kim Tae Woo, Narsha and Yuri here. Love! Narsha and Kim Tae Woo are in a Samsung Anycall CF. Too bad Vanessa and Samsung phones just don't go together.

Funniest Malaysian Names!

I laughed out loud for 10 straight minutes reading this old post at Mr. Badak's website! If you must know, I was searching for the meaning of mulau (crazy in Kadazan) because I wasn't quite sure of the meaning (I'm a poor excuse for a Kadazan), and I stumbled across this. It's not even the post itself (about an unfortunate man named Mulau bin Burit) that was the absolute funniest, it was the commenters! Teachers and government workers come across the funniest names...

Imagine being named...

Lee Je Hoon to Belt Some Notes for Paparotti!

How cute is this piece of news? Everybody's favorite actor gone for military service, Lee Je Hoon, is acting as a gangster who wants to sing! Jang Ho (Lee Je Hoon) has a talented voice, but because of his poor family background, he became a gang member. Nevertheless, Jang Ho still likes to sing and desperately wants to become a singer. He enlists the help of Sang Jin (Han Suk Kyu) who used to be a well regarded performer in Italy, but is now a music teacher at a local high school in a small city. He's not the most passionate of teachers. Kang So Ra plays Sook Hee, a classmate who has a crush on Jang Ho. 
This movie is based on the true story of Kim Ho Joong, who first appeared on Korean TV Show, Star King, on July 18, 2009. During the program, Kim Ho Joong surprised people with his vocal abilities and also made people cry because of his back ground story. He grew up as a troubled kid who joined gangs, but because of his grandmother he began to sing in earnest. Stills and the …

Gawky Poses People Do Best Forgotten

Ever seen a pose that you thought looked terrible even though the person doing it is a mega hot fiiiiiine piece of...well, you get my drift. I'm sure if I asked a guy, they would have plenty of other suggestions but here are just three that occurred to me while typing out this post.

1. The Angry Chicken Pose

E.g. Sohee from the Wonder Girls (middle girl) - BTW their new album WONDER WORLD is out! Check it out! :)

I have never seen anyone pull this off and still look attractive. (Also known as The Stomach Ache or Pelvic Thrust)

2. Woman Draped on a Car Pose

No offense to auto babe ladies everywhere, but I can never find this not tacky. It must be difficult to twist yourself in a sultry pose on a heap of metal (something I, a mere mortal, can never hope to achieve) and I'm glad that at least you're being paid for it.

3. Cutesy Asian Poses

There's a whole multitude of these but I'm pretty sure you're familiar with the like. E.g. Peace Sign (I'm totally guilty of this…
