Started season 4 of Homicide! Really not happy about no Ned Beatty or Baldwin. That is fucking sad given the hotness of Baldwin, despite his absolute mopery. And the liveliness of Beatty. But I love that the reason they are gone is because they were drunk and flashing people? What?
Okay, but the hair! Oh man, the season 4 hair. SO MUCH BETTER. Fucking Bayliss has finally cut that sickening mop. I can’t believe Pembleton partnered with that shit. When they’d take off running after a case or whatever, and the camera would catch the back of his hair whipping all around, it horrified me. What haircuttery would do that? When he shows up in the first ep and everyone is all WHATEVER MAYOR’S BOY I attribute so much of that to his hair. People automatically find it offputting. It is a boy’s hair, not a man. So it’s all gone now, super short, and I’m trying to adjust. I still see a phantom of it, like his head is haunted a bit by his old hair. But I’m only 1 ep into the season of better hair, and looking forward to relaxing a bit about Bayliss’s new cut, just letting the relief sink in and taking it for granted.
Al Giardello and Megan Russert both strode onscreen looking PHENOM. God, Al’s hair has also been a problem for me. It’s always an awkward shape, like someone just did not know what to do with it. Now it’s just a little diff, and I’m so happy about it. Megan looks like a diff person with her glam new hair that is way less in her face. Super gorgeous.
So that is my review of the first ep. La di da. I’d certainly like something done about Howard’s hair, but I suppose it does feel in-character for it to remain as is. Meldrick and Pembleton are, of course, PERFECT-LOOKING.
Stephanie Romanov was on, Lilah from Angel. She looked fucking adorable. I wish I had a photo to post. You’d love her look. Her hair’s shorter.
Oh. I just remembered something. There was a new cast member introduced. His hair is the worst thing I’ve ever seen. Kellerman. I hate his guts times a million. I’d blocked him.
Here is the ending of my last night’s 750 words, in which I somehow found myself touching upon a familiar theme:
okay, how about in season 3 when munch was shown in his apartment, wearing some sort of black silken dressing gown, looking at a photography book while singing along to lou reed’s busload of faith? and it was like a long time of the song going and “munch” (belzer obvs as himself) singing along to every little nuance of lou’s voice. and THEN someone knocked at the door, and belzer got up and did like a little boogie over to the door. okay, NO. god. do not do that. i hate when they let an actor get too much control over a character and they bring in their own retarded baggage about what is “cool.” like goddamn bruce willis being like I SING BLUES SONGS AND DOO WOP AND I HAVE SOUL AND JUST PLEASE EMPHASIZE OFTEN THAT I HAVE SOUL OR ELSE I’LL JUST AD LIB IT SO EITHER WAY. SOUL. I HAVE IT. god. DEVIL WITH THE BLUE DRESS AWN I’M BRUCE WILLIS SEAGRAMS THE GOLDEN WINE SMER SMER. RESPECT YOSELF NA NA NA NA NA NA. YOUUUUNGBLOOOD. YEAH. YOOUUUUNGBLOOOD. WHOA. YOUUUUNGBLOOOD.
