Probably the silliest thing to be bothered by in a show that seems, frankly, a little formulaic:
Why don’t any of the main characters in K-Ville have a genuine N’Orleans accent? The guy playing the police chief is at least trying, but his attempts are uneven at best. The guy who’s supposed to be the old money? Sounds like he’s from Kansas City. (I.e., no accent.)
Is the show timely? Sure, I guess. Is the style interesting and gritty? Absolutely. Could it be set in any other troubled city in the U.S.? Completely. Too bad.
OK, so sometimes the internet is a really messed up place.
Apropos quote of the day:
“Now I wish I had probably gone to another academy because I like computers,” said Akelia, who is 16 and starting her junior year. “When you’re 13, you don’t realize how much work you have to put in to be a lawyer. It’s not like you just go to court, and win or lose, you make a lot of money.”
Our building is having some work done to the facade right now, including power washing. The building manager posted a helpful note the other day, letting us all know that the power washing guys said sometimes windows leak because of the high pressure of the water used when they power wash the walls, and we should all be aware. Then the sign said that if the workers got behind, they might have to make the time up on “Saturday’s.” [sic]
This morning, as I got in the elevator to take the dog down for his morning constitutional, I noticed someone had circled the offending apostrophe and written right next to it: -2
I love our new building.
Has anyone else noticed that NO ONE looks good in those super-skinny jeans? I mean, every girl (or boy) wearing them might as well be wearing denim leggings. And leggings should only be worn at costume parties.
Um, yeah. ((Warning: law student nerdy humor.))
Look, I’m not per se against the commercials for those medications that are supposed to help certain adults resume certain adult activities. I think they’re kind of silly, and probably not necessary, but I’m not opposed to them on any sort of moral ground or anything.
But I do think they could make them a little less unrealistic. Two porcelain-enameled, cast-iron, claw-footed tubs out in the middle of some rugged beach landscape? With two (apparently) unclothed adults sitting in them? No clothes or shoes nearby? Really?
“You’ll be able to zip through a lot of work in a short amount of time today.”
God, let’s hope so. It’s already after 5, and I’ve still got a lot to do.
