The "Tom Keen Show" or "How To Lose An Audience In 3 Episodes Or Less"

TBL continues to drop in ratings and respect, esp. every time the story revolves around Tom… Even critics are picking up and commenting on that now… So what do TPTB do?

TPTB: “I know! Show his abs again! Girls LOVE his abs!!!” (Ratings drop).

TPTB: “Huh… That usually works. I know, have him get into a Fight Club bare knuckle brawl! In a wife beater and be bloody! Really bloody!!!Girls LOVE that!!!” (Ratings drop).

TPTB: “Wow. That’s strange. How ‘bout this? We give him his fake glasses back, his old job, have him hold a puppy, and be all cutesy to Liz so they can screw again… AND he gets to shown off his abs!” (Ratings drop).

TPTB: “Geez! What’s going ON?!!! Women LOVE sexy shirtless adorable redemption Tom!!! ***ponders quietly*** We got! Have him go all rogue again and get shot while trying to get money for his baby mama!!! Bonus points, women will see his abs when he lifts his shirt up and pulls out the bullet!” (Ratings drop).

TPTB: “Okay okay… We FINALLY figured it out. The women want to see MORE shirtless Tom… We must not be giving them enough! So next week we’ll have him lying on the hospital gurney all bloody, and a female doctor can RIP his shirt off so we can see his bulging abs quivering while his chest is heaving and he’s calling for his lover Liz, who will be so beside herself that if he dies she’ll won’t be able to go on living. We’ll ALSO rename the show "Keen.” Just “KEEN.” Like “House.” Only more abs and dimples. And Tom can then be put in charge of the Taskforce, save kittens stuck in trees, wear a leather jacket and boots and drive around in a Mustang that talks to him, and have a side job as a lifeguard so he can run on a beach half naked and dripping water. We’ll also write it into his backstory that he’s a fighter pilot nicknamed Maverick, trained as a 5 star chef at Cordon Bleu for an undercover gig, and is also a semi professional Calvin Klein underwear model who raps occasionally and poses nude on bearskin rugs for college art classes who draw his perfect body. Oh, and we’ll also write all the female characters as being incredibly stupid (or kill them) and having to rely on men, and lastly, we’ll fire James Spader. Yeah, THAT should do it!“

^^^You laugh, but I seriously think this is what goes through TPTB’s brain processes when it comes to Tom Keen and the ratings fiasco whenever episodes and stories revolve mainly around him.

I’m better off alone- alone and unloved. There’s no place for me here.

So there is this anime I like, HQ!! Not sure if anyone heard of it, but I am planning this fic for it, AUverse. And so I decided to make a s3 legacy based on the story..I bended the characters to fit the story anyway and since I already made the sims for the characters in the show I thought why not change them up and use them? I hope this doesn’t get any complaints I am bending the chars from the show, I was just gonna use the show chars but since probably alot of people dont know the show and all I just kind of changed the names, my fic is already changing the chars to almost completely new ones anyway.

I made these sims myself ! I love them! I am so proud cuz I suck at making sims (mostly in sims 3 haha. let me know what you think

I just want to emphasize I am not trying to copy any characters or anything but message me if anyone has a problem with this :) I just want to make a story for everyone to enjoy and if someone doesn’t enjoy please let me know and I will happily listen

Love you all :)

So now we time traveled again on TBL. It's now February. I was trying to give them leeway but baby should be born by now. I know I should drop it but come on. Unless the big twist is baby wasnt conceived during boat sex and instead on the run. Scandalous! That would actually catch me off guard because I wouldnt have thought tptb would have the balls to do it. But alas TK jr will be born after an extra long incubation. Soap Opera. And that is not a dig at soaps. This show will be the death of me.

It’ll be the death of me too Anon. I think the reason the timeline issue is such an issue for many of us is the pregnancy write in wasn’t planned in any way who are they kidding. Yeah the shipper in me gets a little excited when Red says he notices changes in Liz’s body but the practical, literal side of me says bullshit Red. At some point he’d have said something to her out of concern. Hell he’d have said something to Donald when he hauled her back to the post office so she’d be an easy target for The Cabal to kill. None of this happened and there wasn’t a clue given in canon imo that she was pregnant until 3.11 destroyed our hopes and dreams. Now they’re scrambling to deal with it and it’s laughable how fast that bump is growing. Actually calling it a soap opera insults soap operas. Days of Our Lives was just renewed for a 51st season. I’ll leave that there and ask the bigger question. When are tptb going to realize their audience is smarter than they are? Well at least some are and I’ll leave that there too.

One last thing. The vast majority of the fans are thrilled for Megan’s baby girl and real life happiness so all of this^^^ has nothing to do with Megan. If the pregnancy added anything of value to the story, had been planned early on and written intelligently we, the fans, would be the first to forgive any little slip ups with the timeline. But it’s always these last minute shenanigans tptb pull that get them into trouble. When will they learn?

Say you’ll still be by my side.

The Biggest Loser

Is anyone watching this this season? Although there are some aspects of the show I don’t agree with, there are some that tear my heart out, and that keeps me watching.  

I just finished watching last week’s episode, and the part where Erin runs at max on the treadmill and then just broke down emotionally at the end, had me balling!  I wish I could find a video of it, but I don’t see one.

Basically, she didn’t believe she could do it, but her trainer, Jen, pushed her, challenged her, and Erin managed to run at 12mph, the max on the treadmill. She broke down crying afterwards and later said she didn’t understand why she was holding herself back. 

I think we can all relate to that. We don’t believe in ourselves, we’re afraid to fail, so we don’t try.  It’s just so very relate-able and really struck a nerve with me. I’ve been trying to get out of my comfort zone more, trying new things, and I know when I do, even if I ‘fail’, I win. I win just for trying! I gain confidence just for trying. And I learn more about myself, just for trying. And often, I don’t fail and I wonder why I’d spent so long being afraid of it, of not trying. 

Push yourself. Get out of your comfort zone. TRY.
