I finally figured out what is bugging me about Karen this season, and it hit me when the commercial for Twilight came on. Karen is very much in the same vein as Bella from Twilight - absolutely no characteristics of her own, other than being completely milquetoast. Again tonight, Karen was left standing in the street whimpering. Ugh. Grow a backbone!
After having won the competition for "most hated characters on television" last year with the character of Ellis, they re-enter the competition with this stage mom. Ugh. I so wanted to throw her through the window. When one of the characters on this show says "Isn't she a little old to have a momager?" the writers of this show should have stopped to think "Hmm. Yeah, I guess she is."
Speaking of Ellis - really? They KNOW the audience hates Ellis. Why bring him up, except solely to piss off the few people they have left watching this show? The only thing it did was make Jerry look even more like the comic book villain that he is. I mean hell, they even had him take his turn at the mustache-twirling and gloating. Can they BE any more cliche?
I laughed when they said that Bravo was filming the concert, mostly because that is exactly the kind of thing that Bravo USED to show, but is exactly the polar opposite of the kind of thing that they'd show now. It's like NBC/Comcast suits had them include the reference, without even realizing that it unintentionally makes fun of how badly that channel has drifted from it's original format.
I liked the big song at the end. (I did find it ridiculously implausible that they'd invite out the songwriters at the end. Sorry, but that doesn't happen.)
Apparently, I've now I've climbed onto the "hatewatching" bandwagon.
