...to skull caps and plaid. Plaid everywhere! My. Gosh. Also, angry young women who wish to rant about the Feminist viewpoint in Folklore. Is this just in Portland, or in every community college these days? Ack. ( Rant about classCollapse )
Why do all the plots in Continuum feel as if I've seen them six months, or a year ago? The same with Leverage's new season? True, Continuum takes place yonder up North in Vancouver, BC, and I could just be a bit confused since Portland's name is thrown about (Time Traveling Terrorist Gangs originate in Portland, OR, these days, don't'cha know?); and these year's Leverage actually 'is' in Portland (I think the writers got tired of pretending Portland was really Boston, and now the producers get to run a micro-brew/restaurant).
Maybe the deja vu stems from actually living in Portland? I feel like I've seen all the episodes (well, two so far in Leverage's case) someplace before. Maybe I just watched too much syndicated television in the nineties?
I'm still hung up on Continuum's Time Cop Procedural/Mystery/Romance Meets Chicky Fanfiction/Angst/Predictable/Plots which can't seem to decide if it takes place in Vancouver, BC, or in the United States; because, c'mon, only in fanfiction or early mystery drafts do Canadian Cops try to co-opt Portland Police officers without any explanation, right? It's 2012 (pronounced twenty-twelve, puh-leeze), as the show is so fond of saying, and one can't cross the international border without a Passport/Passport ID - so, yeah, realistic? Pfft? Time Cop girl should have stuck with black ops CIA (cue the Alias theme music).
