I just heard that Lifetime has only picked up the first 13 episodes of Blood Ties. And if the ratings are good enough that maybe we will get to see the rest of the series.

 I am just getting into this series [and getting used to actually watching something on Lifetime TV] and really would like to see it continue. I think networks are way too quick to pull the plug on shows. Especially in this day of DVRs. I record all my shows and watch them when I have the time. Rarly do I watch the show live. I guess this hurts the ratings and bugs the advertisers since I can then FF thru the commercials [when I remember to].

Guess it is time to write into the network and tell they have a pretty good thing on their hands and they need to bring us the rest. Why don’t you do that too? There is only about 4 episodes left and then maybe no more.

Here is what I sent them: I have enjoyed the series thus far [I don’t usually watch your network and it has brought me to you if that does say it all right there I don’t know what does] and I was hoping it will be picked up for the rest of the seaosn. Will it? And if it is when will you be airing it again?

Okay, I cannot believe I am the one to figure this out. Usually I am the last one to place a face or know an actor that looks familiar, but this time I got this one first.

I have been watching Blood Ties [Sundays @ 10 on Lifetime] and for the life of me I knew I knew the woman playing the lead role but could not place her. Then it dawned on me. Christina Cox whole plays Vicki Nelson was in Better Than Chocolate. [A nicely done lesbian love story where the girl actually gets the girl in the end instead of running off with the guy…you uknow what I am talking about Kevin Smith].

That little bit of knowledge alone is worth watching this series. I have gotten past the psuedo romance trying to play out between the three leads [seems stiff] the demonic storylines are enough for me. But I do think Vicki should drop the dead weight of Mike and stick with the hunky vampire [or at least I think he is supposed to be hunky].

I have been hearing that action figures are dead. That kids don’t play with them any more. All they want are video games and collectible card games. Well that’s just not true. Spend a day with a kid at Grandma’s house [no video games] and give him a figure or two to play with. Guess what the imagination comes back and they play. [True story this past easter sunday with a seven year old who played for hours with my Venom and Spidey figures.]

So while toy stores are pulling the plug on figures they are still out there to get you just need to adjust your shopping to online or comic shops to get them.

It would be great to see the big toy stores [Toys R Us and KB Toys] give crappy figures like the McFarlane bullsh** a rest and bring back figures with playability!

Especially if it is the Edible Marvel Action Figures from Dynatech. These things appear to be a good idea when you first read about them…build an action figure with candy pieces. Play with it then eat it.

 Well, they did not make the candy hard enough so it melts in the package causing a gooey mess when you try to make the figure and FORGET about trying to play with it. You are lucky to be able to eat it!
