If We Picked the Emmy Winners




The Emmy Awards were handed out a couple of days ago, some went the way we thought they would, some others didn’t. Here’s what we would have voted for in a few of the categories:

Susan
Supporting actor & actress in a comedy– Eric Stonestreet & Julie Bowen are really the best of Modern Family
Lead actress in a comedy – Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Yes, great choice!
Lead actor in a comedy – John Cryer??? It’s a good thing Louis C.K. won two other Emmys, but he really should have won this too.
Supporting actress in a drama – Downton Abbey is awesome, but I would have voted for Anna Gunn in Breaking Bad (anyone shocked?)
Supporting actor in a drama – Aaron Paul, I would have also been very happy with Giancarlo Esposito! Can’t they give a second award?
Lead actor & actress in a drama – Homeland was amazing. I’m happy with the winners, but Bryan Cranston & Elisabeth Moss would have been great as well.
Drama series – I’m happy that Homeland broke Mad Men’s streak, but I would have preferred Breaking Bad
Comedy series – Weren’t the streaks supposed to end? I saw a couple of episodes of Girls & Veep, but I loved Curb Your Enthusiasm, so I would have to give them the win.

Kelly
Claire Danes--big fat YES
Damian Lewis yes, but . . . Bryan Cranston. He's won before, hasn't he?
Homeland--yes! But BB I'm predicting should get it next year. Screw Mad Men, which I've never watched, so of course I'm just kidding. But BB hasn't won best drama, has it?
Writing for Homeland--yes
Aaron Paul--yes, but he has a chance next year. Giancarlo Esposito was amazing as Gus and no more chance for that role. If Peter Dinklage had not won last year, I would have been pissed that he didn't win now.

EmCity 12 Wheel of Variety Good Impotence




In this podcast Susan, Amelia, and Chris discuss the four episodes to finish season 5: Wheel of Fortune, Variety, Good Intentions, and Impotence.
We took a Breaking Bad break as well, that's GGS 033 Breaking Geek 3

Wheel of Fortune
(written by TF& Sunil Nayar/directed by Terry Kinney/theme: physics)
Robson stirs up problems between White and Said. Meanwhile, Pancamo's illness might save some work for his enemies, Schillinger makes a friendly but suspicious overture towards Beecher, and Morales seeks revenge on his sister's abusive husband.

Variety
(written by TF& Bradford Winters/directed by Roger Rees/theme: variety show)
As Cyril's trial gets off to an inauspiciously cold start, tensions between Mukada and Kirk come to a boil. Also, a priest named Meehan lands in Oz while White and Said turn over a new leaf in their relationship. McManus comes up with a potential solution for Rebadow's dying grandson.

Good Intentions
(written by TF& Bradford Winters/directed by Adam bernstein/theme: good intentions gone bad)
Hill's recovery leads to renewed friction between Redding and Morales, Alvarez gets his wish as the 'Man's Best Friend' program is finished and Meehan presents some revolutionary ideas to help Cyril. Meanwhile, Beecher's attempt to help Guenzel doesn't work as planned and Martinez seems close to spilling the beans about Brass.

Impotence
(written by TF/directed by Alex Zakrzewski/theme: erectile dysfuntion)
In the Season Five finale, Robson goes to extremes to remedy his gum dilemma, McManus struggles with personal turmoil over his decision to stay at Oz and Rebadow deals with his grandson's fate. Meanwhile, Busmalis gets a huge surprise from his former fiancee and an agreement between Morales and Urbano ends in trouble for another prisoner.

TB10 13 Best and Worst of Season 5





In this podcast Susan and Kelly are joined by Sistah Speak True Blood's Sistah J & Sistah K to discuss the best and worst of season 5. These are just a few of the things we thought stood out this season. Below is half of our lists and the podcast contains the rest. What did you think?



Sistah J - Best
  1. Russell staking Roman
  2. Eric glamours Alcide to think that Sookie disgusts him.
  3. Pam rescuing Tara from the tanning bed.
  4. Russell pretending to go along with the Lilith cult.
  5. Lafayette tells Sookie, “Hell, you a white girl, they gonna believe you.”
Sistah J - Worst
  1. Russell is goo (bummer!)
  2. Luna’s mean/argumentative attitude towards Sam
  3. Hoyt’s whining pity party
  4. The black guy in the redneck club
  5. Only seeing Kenya in a few scenes all season
Sistah K - Best
  1. Pam - all scenes, all dialogue (except 1)
  2. Bill/Stephen Moyer - Love his shifty eyed looks
  3. Eric "tall drink of Viking water" Northman/Alexander Skarsgaard
  4. Alcide butt booty nekkid
  5. Steve Newlin's reveal "I'm a gay vampire American"
Sistah K - Worst
  1. Not enough Lafayette in the last half of the season
  2. Andy is a super cop now and can tell from a tire track what kind of car they are looking for? Come on!!!
  3. Sam has a super nose all of a sudden? Him and Luna could tell there was a fat woman who ate Cheetos and drank Mello Yello...yet he didn't know who was killing all the women in season 1? I don't think so!
  4. Pam and Tara as a couple
  5. King Russell met the true death
Susan - Best
  1. How the Vampire Authority storyline reflected current issues in politics and religion. Discuss amongst yourselves.
  2. Seeing the  flashback to Terry and Arlene's wedding. We had no idea what happened in the 13 months while Sookie was missing. This helped fill in some of the time.
  3. Jessica glamours Hoyt, she and Jason tell him goodbye. It was so sad, but a well done scene. I'll miss that Hoyt, but not the mean Hoyt who hates Jessica. He's obviously never seen Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind in which people have their bad memories erased. Spoiler alert - it changes you as a person.
  4. Sam's vampire-who-swallowed-the-fly kill of Roslyn
  5. Mirella's fairy-orgasmic birth of quadruplets. If only it were so clean, quick, and painless in real life...
Susan - Worst
  1. True death of Roman. I wanted to see more scenes with Guardian Roman & King Russell
  2. Hoyt joining the hate group because he thought he had their love and acceptance
  3. Alcide & JD's packmaster challenge. It was just boring
  4. Lafayette's imitation of Whoopi Goldberg in Ghost. He's one of my favorite characters on the show and could have had his own  style, not recreated something else so recognizable.
  5. Not enough of the Fairy elder. She could have given us lots of information!
Kelly - Best

  1. Rev Vampire Steve showing up at Jason's door, glamouring Jason to let him come in, then confessing his love/lust for Jason. Hilarious! I found Rev (human) Steve kind of scary in season 2, but I found him funny and charming in this season, not as wonderfully wickedly charming as Russell, of course. And I don't expect that he will be able to replace Russell, but I am enjoying his presence on the show. I also loved Jessica showing up to save Jason from Rev Vampire Steve. It was also sweet to see Jason sort of back to his old naive self. He has always come across as innocent to me, even when he's doing something tawdry or violent. His intentions always feel simple and naive, making him rather endearing--and quite the opposite of Rev Steve, in either him or vampire form. Rev Steve is always conniving and manipulating. Jason is just trying to be happy, trying to make someone else happy or trying to protect the people he loves--no malice in that boy at all.
  2. Pam's quote, "You don't know me that we'll. My mad face and my happy face are the same." I could have put a quote from or a scene with Pam for all 10 of my best mentions. I love how much more we got to know Pam this season. I hated that Eric released her, but I adored that scene. I love watching Pam and Tara's relationship evolve. Who would have ever thought that Pam would like Tara, much less kinda love her!?!
  3. Sam Merlotte killing chancellor Roslyn when, in the form of a fly, he flew into her mouth and transformed back into a human from inside her. Yuck! Shocking and horrifying but very clever. Sam rocked this season.
  4. Andy saying to Jason in the office/jail: "We just kicked the bejesus out of Joe Bob . . . I mean, Joe Bob fell off his bunk and he still wouldn't say who the dragon is." I laughed so much at that line.
  5. Jessica giving vampire Tara her "It Gets Better" speech. I LOVE the real-life tie-ins in the show. Along those lines, I would award a best mention to all the religious themes throughout this season. I loved how much the show dove into those issues. It also tied in nicely with season 2 and Jason first meeting Rev Steve in the Fellowship of the Sun. Vampires then seemed to be above religion, only to discover that their religious mythology is actually deeper than that of the humans.
Kelly - Worst

  1. Luna being sick. When she was transforming back into herself after being Sam, I think it was, she was as sick as Tommy had been right before he died. There were three or four times that it looked like Luna was going to die, and I got really annoyed with it. It's not that's wanted her to die. It's that I wanted them to stop teasing us with it. Live, die or shut up--I stopped caring about her. (Until she briefly warned the world on camera about what the vampire Authority was really up to. Her strongest moment of the season.)
  2.  Hoyt joining his "pro-human," Obama mask-wearing, vampire-killing buddies. He redeemed himself when he released Jessica. But I was very disappointed that he joined them at all. I know he was dealing with a bunch of personal issues, but this was just annoying to me.
  3. The klan/dragon storyline. I do tho it's a fine storyline to have, tying in with real world events and issues. But this just felt like an unnecessary distraction from more pressing and interesting events. And did Bud the old sheriff really have to be killed off all of a sudden?
  4. Tying into number 3, did the coroner have to killed off randomly, too? I get the point that people were being turned into vampires willy-nilly. But why him, HBO?
  5. Werewolf Ricky. I appreciated having a season in which Sookie wasn't having sex, but did Alcide really need a replacement for her that quickly? And what on earth does he see in Sookie if his real type is Debbie and Ricky? Sookie isn't like them at all, so it's weird to me that Alcide would be attracted to all three of them. This will sound awful, butPoor Ricky and Debbie made Sookie look high class. Maybe Alcide views Sookie as the dream girl he can never have?
We received a list from our listener Angela as well. Her best of season 5 were Lafayette talking to Gran in the bedroom telling Sookie where to find the scroll and Eric & Nora in the storage container & Eric's line to Bill, "we fight like siblings and fuck like champions!"  Angela's worst were Jason telling Jessica he could never love her because she's a vampire and Eric releasing Pam.



We have read most of Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse novels, but we promise not to spoil any of the storylines that haven’t already been covered in the show.  Since the show is explicit, this podcast is also tagged explicit so we (and you) can quote and discuss the show as it was made - with all the blood, sex, and hot vampires that we can handle.

EmCity 11 Visitation Laws Dream Valhalla




In this podcast Susan, Amelia, and Chris discuss the first 4 episodes of season 5: Visitation, Laws of Gravity, Dream a Little Dream of Me, & Next Stop Valhalla.

Correction: Adam Bernstein directed Hazard Pay from Season 5 of Breaking Bad.

Visitation
(written by TF/directed by Alex Zakrzewski/theme: historical figures & prison)
In the Season Five premiere, Oz re-opens in the wake of major renovations that had to be completed following a gas explosion. Rev. Cloutier (Luke Perry)--who had been bricked up behind a wall--barely survives the blast. Meanwhile, Arif wants O'Reily blamed for O'Keenan's death, but O'Reily has other plans in mind.

Laws of Gravity
(written by TF& Sean Whitesell/directed by Rob Morrow/theme: the three laws)
McManus thinks White may reform if he spends quality time with Said; Alvarez offers Guerra a unique solution to their dispute; O'Reily's mother, Suzanne Fitzgerald, begins a community service term teaching music at Oz; and the FBI stirs up trouble over Hank Schillinger's death.

Dream a Little Dream of Me
(written by TF& Sean Whitesell/directed by Adam Bernstein/theme: dreams
Brass wants to know who cut his tendon; Redding and Morales form another uneasy alliance; the burned Rev. Cloutier's mysterious influence over his followers grows more intriguing; and Keller returns to Oz, only to be hit with an ID from an old murder charge.

Next Stop: Valhalla
(written by TF& Sunil Nayar/directed by J Miller Tobin/theme: Norse mythology)
Penders, Hill and Alvarez are given a chance to train seeing-eye dogs; Martinez gives Brass a 'cocktail' he definitely didn't order; the love triangle between Beecher, McClain and Keller becomes more complicated; and two new young inmates become pawns in a battle between Blacks and Aryans.

In this podcast Susan, Amelia, and Chris discuss The Blizzard of '01, Orpheus Descending, Even the Score, and Famous Last Words. With this podcast, season 4 is finally ended.

The Blizzard of ‘01
(written by TF/directed by Leslie Libman/theme: snow)
O'Reily is in for a surprise when a visitor reveals the truth about his past, while Cyril faces trouble for his difficult behavior. Meanwhile, Morales and Redding lay out plans that could lead to all-out war in Em City.

Orpheus Descending
(written by TF& Sunil Nayar & Sean Whitesell/directed by Gloria Muzio/theme: Orpheus)
McManus calls a superficial truce between Redding and Morales. Basil finally sees his wife, but Hughes ends up spoiling their happiness. Meanwhile, Cyril's latest outburst proves to be the last straw.

McManus finds he is unable to turn his back on White. Beecher tells the parents of the young girl he killed that he's up for parole. Howell tries to blackmail O'Reily so she can get to Cyril, but he throws her for a loop--and then O'Reily is thrown himself by a family secret.

Famous Last Words
(written by TF& Sean Whitesell/directed by Adam Bernstein/theme: last words)
In the Season Four finale, Hill discovers where his true allegiances lie. Redding's plot to use the Colonel against Morales has an unexpected outcome. Cloutier runs into trouble from his church on the outside and his parishioners in Oz. White gets a little too close to McManus. Beecher's agony about his parole hearing leads to a shocking climax.

GGS Em City 08 Gray Words Without Life


In this podcast Susan, Amelia, and Chris discuss episodes 5-8 of season 4: Gray Matter, A Word to the Wise, A Town Without Pity, and You Bet Your Life

Gray Matter
(written by TF/directed by Brian Cox/theme: human brain)
As Querns implements his new course of action, the dynamics of Em City start to change. Beecher falls deeper into depression as he wonders about the fate of his children. Mobay, still proving himself to Adebisi, commits a hideous crime. Stanislofsky attempts to have O'Reily whacked, but the plan backfires. Mukada confronts Schillinger about Beecher's kids.

A Word to the Wise
(written by TF/directed by Keith Samples/theme: figures of speech)
In an effort to reduce violence, white inmates are transferred out of Em City. Mobay gets in good with Adebisi's crew...but pays a price. Officer Murphy takes a new assignment in Unit B. Officer Howell is transferred to Em City to counter the increasing lack of diversity. Beecher finds out who is responsible for his children's kidnapping.

A Town Without Pity
(written by TF/directed by J Miller Tobin/theme: prison economics)
O'Reily begins a surprising affair. Zabitz asks Schillinger for protection from Keller. Beecher looks to get even with his children's abductor. Adebisi wields his power by going solo in the drug business. Said pledges his allegiance to Adebisi, but plots with McManus to stop Querns's reign of terror. Hughes makes an attempt on Devlin's life.

You Bet Your Life
(written by TF/directed by Adam Bernstein/theme: gambling)
After Hughes's attack on Devlin, Glynn withdraws from the race. Miguel Alvarez is still on the loose. Supreme Allah gets an unwanted surprise. Hill pays when he tells Mobay he knows he's undercover. Glynn deals with Querns when he gets evidence of Em City's mismanagement, and McManus takes back his 'rightful territory.' Said does the unthinkable.

Next time:  Medium Rare, Conversions, Revenge Is Sweet, Cuts Like a Knife
