House of Horrors

You guys. I’m struggling here. I was mainlining coffee while watching Tuesday’s episode and could still barely remain conscious. I rewound the scene where Serena explained to Eric what was going on with the diamonds — because I had zoned out the first time — and then just zoned out even worse the second time. I barely have any idea what she said, nor do I hate myself to go back and try to understand. Even my jokes feel stale! Nicole still looks like a hooker, Daniel is still a sanctimonious asshole, Sonix is the least believable fictional publication I have ever seen and Ari appears to be in charge of graphics, etc.

So let’s just talk about something practical here. This is Theresa’s apartment.

Try and disregard the fact that it is identical to Eve’s, even though no one ever mentions that fact. (Seriously, they couldn’t have doubled up with two sets of characters who don’t frequently share scenes? There are times when I don’t even know which apartment they’re in, if Eve and Theresa are both there.) Does this place look like an uninhabitable hellhole to you?

The answer should be no, if you are a sane human being — which is questionable, given that you are watching this show, but still. It’s unfortunate that Tate wouldn’t have his own room there, but Brady was going on and on about how the place was such a dump. It looks like a perfectly reasonable one-bedroom apartment for a 20-something, not some rat-infested slum.

Sorry we aren’t all fortunate enough to live in our grandfathers’ one-room mansions, jerk!

He has every reason to be dubious of Theresa’s ability to parent responsibly, given her history of substance abuse (which would be hypocritical of him but at least based in reality), her flakiness at her job, and the fact that she fairly recently attempted to murder his father. But to rag on her place and then offer to “help out with rent” on a “better” apartment? You’re a damn billionaire who never works! Rent her an apartment you will find acceptable — with gold toilets, I presume — and shut the hell up.

    srsly….why Doesn’t Brady (who btw isn’t going to any meetings for his addictions i might add.)…have his own place to live??? ‘based on reality’ re: Theresa: HA HA HA!!! Soap Opera Reality!! or, maybe reality reality considering the show she acts in……

    And the look alike apartments:

    Considering people go over to other people’s apts/houses/mansions/hovels and someone opens the door and they just waltz in totally unexpected & UNINVITED—
    then start hassling the other person—–which always drives me to the nuts, or
    they just automatically APPEAR when someone is somewhere and in trouble, or doing something they should not be doing, but WHAM! there they are….to take pictures, or chase them around with a gun, knife or garrote (Hello Xander you pantomime screamer), or try to save them….out of the blue…. shoot….. what the hell was my point???
    I guess I am struggling and stymied and zoned out too.
    As xander would act AAAAARRRRRGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!

      OMG, it drives me nuts how people just show up and barge in. I get that it’s more dramatic to have scenes in person, but who spends their whole damn day marching over to other people’s homes when you could just like call or text?!

      The other move that these writers overuse is when someone whips open their front door, intending to leave, and someone is just standing there as if they were waiting to knock or ring the bell. How often does this happen in real life?!

    If Brady is that concerned he could buy a two or three bedroom house in a neighborhood he deems appropriate and give it to Teresa. The apartment was just fine with Brady when he was doing drugs and hooking up with Teresa.

    • mykleraus Says:

      Right? This should not even be a consideration. I guess we’re supposed to assume this (perfectly nice) apartment is in a shitty area of town or something — I honestly couldn’t even tell what Brady’s problem with the place was.

    his problem with the place is theresa lives there……
