1x17 Episode Discussion Post  
So Sean/Kat is kinda adorable. Though he's pretty stupid for spamming the pics of Tara and Christian over the school.

I'm a bit disappointed in Sammy for not giving Abigail more grief about the photo but I suppose it's difficult for someone to be angry with the person they're crushing on/in love with. The kiss between them though were cute. I decided that I can tolerate Sammy/Abigail quite well.

However, I'm very disappointed in the fact that Tara said that she only wanted to be friends with Christian. Am I the only one thinking that she made that choice so that she could show Kat that she's putting her ahead of everything else? Because she didn't really seem all that happy afterwards... Or? I don't know. I personally wouldn't be all awkward after it if I meant it but then again, it was quite a serious conversation and she might've felt bad for rejecting him? I dunno. I'm keeping myself on the 'unwillingly letting him go' camp because of her reaction to Kat and Christian kissing.

Also, Ethan's kind of a douche for apparently not completely breaking up with what's-her-face. Or I don't know. I kinda feel incredibly sorry for him though. I have a feeling the necklace was expensive... Just because that's how TV shows usually operate...

I've really grown more addicted to this show than I should. And I'm almost 20. *hides*

Also, there should be a friending meme or something. Just because... this show is taking over my brain and I need people to discuss it with.

Sean/Kat is kinda adorable in a weird kind of way. But I'm worried Sean could get really annoying...

I really wanted Sammy to give Abigail a piece of his mind, but of course that isn't gonna happen. I'm not a fan of Sammy/Abigail just because he lets her screw with his "friends" without really calling her out on it. Sammy is incredibly sweet around Abigail, but it also makes him a jerk about his "friends".

I'm also in the 'unwillingly letting him go' camp too! I think she does really like him, but she feels guilty for the damage she caused by kissing him. Plus she wants to prove that Kat matters to her and their friendship is important. But I don't think we've seen the last of Christian/Tara... *clings to ship*

I kinda feel bad for Ethan. But I also just don't like him *shrug*

Don't worry, I'm addicted too, and I'm well over 20 XD

A friending meme is a good idea. I can start a community one...

Ugh, stupid grammar mistakes and bad wording *headdesk*

I am sooo much older than you and I'm totally addicted too! :D

I don't know how I feel about Sean/Kat. I'll wait and see.

I was really almost liking Abigail and then she did that nasty thing and I fear she will always be the evil/nasty character on this show and I will hope every episode to see a better side of her and just when I think she has redeemed herself she will do something again. I am not a fan of 'bad' characters just for the sake of creating an adversary, I know that's how shows are written but it's just one thing that bugs me a lot. So I'm afraid to get my hopes up for her. She might just disappoint me repeatedly.

I think Ethan truly did like Tara but now he is back to his old ways and I really could care less about him. I didn't really like Tara and Ethan together anyway.

I don't know what is up with Tara and Christian but I guess you are right that she said that to him for Kat's sake. I hope dancing together makes something develop between them but it's ok of it starts as a solid friendship which they don't really have quite yet.

I liked the parallels with Shakespeare and their lives.

almost 20? you don't even wanna know how old i am ;)
aliasagent on June 24th, 2010 10:15 am (UTC)
lol. I was just feeling bad about my age when I thought I was the only one hyping about the show (fandom isolation can do that to a person :P) but now that it seems like most people are about the same age, if not older, I feel a lot better :D :D

Looked in wiki

Christian and Tara going to be a couple anyhow! YAY!

Before when I saw in spoilers Christian and Kat kiss mentioning, thought whether Chrstian supposed to be with Kat, but watching the show realised that it is Kat who kissed Christian. And he is not into her, so happy that it is Christian and Tara.

Therefore I think Tara is trying to focus on whatever stuff she needs to, but I think she lies to herself and in her mind when she thinks about Ethan she understands she doesn't love him. But when she thinks of Christian, and how much sometimes he irritates her. I can feel it my gut that she just denies the obvious.
As you know love and hate one step away.

And yes you right, when I saw her reaction (and Christian's reaction to her reaction) to Christian's and Kat's kiss it all made sense.

Actually Christian is perfect boyfriend. He is silent cool type, who understands everything but doesn't rub it in your face. He is very noble, a very good friend. Despite his personal drama overcomes difficulties, do not give up.

I don't even understand how Ethan can be "perfect" from Tara's view (and Kat's too). He is a jerk, he says hurtful stuff to everyone. Irresponsible (look at all the hearts he had broken), such a player, selfish.
aliasagent on June 24th, 2010 10:14 am (UTC)
I know I shouldn't read all the spoilers but I did anyway and OMG. I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS AWESOMENESS.

I think a lot of Ethan's appeal as the supposed 'perfect' boyfriend is due to his boyband looks and his seeming uncomplicatedness. Christian has more virtues (if that's something one can use in circumstances) but because of his troubled past, he is branded as a troubled soul and generally, that kind of labelling happens everywhere in society and affects him to be seen as a 'perfect'. Ethan comes from an upperclass background with obvious talent and the world at his feet. It's pretty natural that he's seen as the perfect boyfriend because people (or at least it seems, on the show) have this image of a Disney prince coming to save them and since he qualifies, he's consequently seen as perfect. He's seen as stable, able to take care and spoil his girlfriend rotten.

Or at least that's my take on it.

It's horrible what Disney done to stereotypes. I really dislike the Ethan type of ppl.
aliasagent on June 24th, 2010 02:20 pm (UTC)
I hear you. Ethan = douchey. He's supposed to be this dreamboat (or whatevs) but instantly I was like 'girl, no!'.

where did you got it?
brucelovesyouo_chan on June 24th, 2010 02:56 pm (UTC)
I work at a newspaper and they give the tv team every single show that's on tv to review. But half the time they don't get time to review it so they give it away. I'm missing episode 20 and 25 though arghhhhh
aliasagent on June 24th, 2010 02:18 pm (UTC)
OMG I AM SO ENVIOUS. you don't feel like ripping them by any chance? ;)

brucelovesyouo_chan on June 24th, 2010 02:57 pm (UTC)
I don't know how to :S
The person on the torrent is doing a great job uploading them everyday though.. I'm waiting for ep 20 and 25 since they're the only ones I'm missing :/
aliasagent on June 24th, 2010 03:02 pm (UTC)
Hmmm. If google it something like 'how to drip dvds windows' or 'how to rip dvds mac' depending on what your computer is, I'm sure google will help you. If you feel like being adventurous that is :P

*patiently waits with you for more new episodes*
looneybyron on June 24th, 2010 02:06 pm (UTC)
did anyone else notice the "center stage" ref? petra says (while they are cleaning the studio mirrors) that if this was a movie, they'd have a waterfight now. ring a bell anyone? or am i just really old to remember this? ;)
aliasagent on June 24th, 2010 02:19 pm (UTC)
Omg, I remember that. I saw it a while ago because there's only so many times you can watch the fail that is Step Up 1 and 2 and I required a dance movie :P Love the reference :D :D
looneybyron on June 24th, 2010 02:23 pm (UTC)
initially i only watched center stage for ilja kulik (i'm SO into figure skating, there's not a word big enough to describe it) and ended up going back to see it twice more for the great ballet.
and as we're at it: the female instructor is the gypsy girl from "strictly ballroom", but that was WAY back...
aliasagent on June 24th, 2010 02:24 pm (UTC)
I've never actually seen it. Is it good?
looneybyron on June 24th, 2010 06:25 pm (UTC)
are you kidding? "strictly ballroom" is awesome! it's about ballroom, not ballet of course ;)
Becca: [Skating] Belbin/Agosto_becca84_ on June 25th, 2010 01:20 am (UTC)
"strictly ballroom" is awesome!


And Ilia was so adorable in 'Center Stage' ♥ I didn't know he was in it when I started watching, and I was thrilled when I saw him!
looneybyron on June 25th, 2010 07:35 am (UTC)
the best thing was when he told those girls he was mafia X)
Mariahesitant_solace on June 24th, 2010 04:05 pm (UTC)
Old? Try 26. ;)

Ugh, I wanted to shake Tara when she said she only liked Christian as a friend. >< Poor guy. :( But I do hope it is because she wants to show Kat that she puts her before anyone else. I guess that's fine. For now. :p

Oh, and WE GOT A SAMMY/ABIGAIL KISS! :D (Kinda excited about that.)
s. followhore: {dancea} sammykatthisjuliet on June 25th, 2010 05:37 am (UTC)
I LOVE SEAN/KAT NOW!! haha I'm not fond of sammy/abigail, but i've accepted it, esp. b/c i've spoiled myself and it's surprisingly not the worst thing they could do. :P

Tara is in such denial. i can't even.

i think ethan broke up w. her, they worked together after right? and were not together, for the dance w. christian and then she left. i think she was just really easy to get back b/c he's so durrrreamy :P

I AM 20!!! I really loved this episode. like a lot. maybe its because i didn't watch it right away and was like omfg how did i not? best show! :P

also Kat gets more and more gorg every ep.
