Harper's Island  
So, you see my mom is a mystery fan. So she's been fangirling over Harper's Island all week. Tonight, we watched it.

Well, I thought it was cheesy. However, I was fully expecting that so...LOL

Pretty much your standard mystery plot. Skantly clad women thrown in there, of course. And I find the music overpowering and sort of ruins the suspense. But it was pretty much what shows like that are supposed to be. I'm just spoiled ;)

That said, my mom liked it so we'll probably keep watching. Besides, I expect the first couple of episodes to be slow anyway. That's for establishing characters. I'm there for the mystery anyway. I can ignore the rest LOL

I thought Katie Cassidy looked beautiful.

I am already fangirling Jim Beaver. Ha.

I'm using a Bobby icon since that's all I have...

It's funny because my mom and I just called him Bobby the whole time.

My mom: I saw Bobby in the promo! There's Bobby. Bobby plays the sherriff huh?

Poor Jim. LOL

I'll have to see if they'll post it online. I was gonna watch last night, but was too tired. But I agree.. what I did see, Katie Cassidy should never go blonde again.

She is absolutely stunning in this color for Harper's Island. I was just like wow. I wish I was that gorgeous!

And it wasn't like she wasn't pretty with the blonde hair!

Maybe you can go to the show's website. Maybe they'll have the episode up to try and attrcat more viewers.

If your mom likes mysteries (me, too) has she seen Castle? It's on ABC, Monday nights (9:00 p.m. central time). The first one was good for the plot parts (so very mystery writer--I've read so many mysteries over the years!) but bad in that the main character was a jerk. However, he's changed for the better in the episodes since and it's worth watching, I think. If you haven't seen it from the beginning, and can see them online, let your mom see that that way, in order, as it'll make more sense.

Yeah? It's not bad? I was kind of iffy on it because the promos really turned me off. But sometimes it's hard to get a feel for a show just based on commericals.

I'll poke around and see if she's interested :)

I think it's good. If she's a mystery reader, I think she will like the show. First one had the guy behaving pretty jerkily, at times, but it was also quite amusing, often, and had a lot of mystery staples that she'll recognize and appreciate.

The episodes since have improved his character and still been good to pretty good as mysteries. Give them a try, in order if possible.

I already know who did it! I know it from the screaming girl in the water and Harry Hamlin's last scene!

It was Kenny the Shark from Jaws! See, after the jaws franchise ended Kenny's been looking for work. He's taken LandShark classes and started selling candygrams.

When he heard about Harper's Island, it was just a match made in heaven for him.

No kidding right? He must have found that it was his new calling. The scenario is right, why not?

Dun dun. Dun dun. Dun dun...

Do you know of anywhere online we can catch that episode? My cousin and I were going to watch it but we forgot to set the DVR and we weren't home. She wants to watch it mostly for Katie Cassidy and Jim Beaver, lol, but hey, we're fangirls. I'm kinda interested in the show.
