Hindsight On Hindsight 103

I like that this is becoming a thing on this blog. Much like what Activia does for Jamie Lee Curtis, Hindsight is apparently keeping my postings regular. It's nice.

The more of these I do, the more I'm noticing this is turning into a more verbose Photo Recap with less photos and no lol speak. Not that I have anything against that, quite the opposite. I just now feel obliged to acknowledge it and say if you watch American Horror Story you should absolutely read the photo recaps done by Price Peterson. They're hilarious, I read them after each episode.

With that said, it's time to turn off Clarissa Explains It All and make sure non of your guests lay a finger on your Butterfinger BB's and, as always, spoilers ahoy my friends.

The third episode starts the day after Andy's kiss with Lolly, who now fully believes Becca's claims about time jumping, eye fucking her new purple Doc's and exclaiming her love for them.

Is it weird that I'm jealous of both a pair of shoes, and the owner of said shoes? I think odd thoughts like that should be exempt if it refers to Lolly-pop.

Becca and Lolly start talking about the kiss from Andy and Becca tells her that he's never kissed her like that in the 4 years that they were dating/engaged/getting to know one another carnally. Thank you VH1 for proving that the 90's makes everything better, even kisses.

I'm siding with Lolly-pop, Becca. In a store full of movies you have to pick a modern one she's never seen to describe a damn kiss? ...Ok, ok, Notebook gets the damn exception.

Oh Gods, that movie was seriously just so good.

So Becca thinks maybe she was brought back to be with the 90's version of Andy. Does she think that things will never change and the 90's will never end? Because I did, and let me tell you it's not true.

People change, sometimes not always for the better. Sean gets angry and Andy gets boring. How will just your presence alone stop that from happening if it couldn't before? Becca is, however, becoming more proactive in her past which could absolutely change things for the future. I mean, it already is. Now she has a possible future, barring that she does not go back to that job of course, where she doesn't work for Simon. Her future is once again in flux, and so is everyone else's with it. Well, leading up to the next 20 years of course.

Lolly's name is Lavine/Laveen/Screw it? This is like finding out that Kramer's name was Cosmo. It oddly fits, but it's just weird and kind of funny.

Part of me wants to ship Lolly and her dorky boss. Possibly because I go for the dorks, but also because I could so see those two getting together if they were in a romantic comedy set up where the girl sees what she was missing all along and goes for the weirdo instead of the obviously hot Keanu Reeves-esque man she thought was 'the one'.

Sorry, Neo.

Becca goes over to Andy "Dungeons and Dragons" Kelly's to talk about the kiss and he tries to renege on his feelings.

Oh Andy, don't be the Chaotic Evil character in a campaign full of Lawful Good players.

This moment is once again interrupted by Melanie who tries to talk about Becca's loss of a job.

Becca's new job is to try and steal your man Melanie, now get the hell out of the way!

This Melanie bitch just used the word blessed in a sentence about working for Simon and I almost threw up. I'm so...blessed... I have yet to eat anything spicy today.

Dat eyebrow arch, Mmph!

Screw Admiral Ackbar memes. This should be the new 'It's a trap!' face. This is why you don't say plans and epiphanies out loud. Use your inside your head voice, Becca.
Bitchy Phoebe shows up to check on Becca at her family's request because they're all worried about her. Lolly winds up inviting her to Nervous Lois from the office's birthday party that nobody really wants to go to.

What the hell is even going on? If a rumble between Becca and Melanie happened, Phoebe would definitely not have your back. She'd just stand on the sidelines and complain about how poor and common this made Becca look. You know she would!

Classic Bitchy Phoebe.

Holy fuck Zima. That's a brand I haven't heard of in a long while.

Zima, for when you literally have no other choice and because you can't get drunk on water.
I think the only thing that Phoebe's ever reevaluated in her life was her nail polish.
The 'Monica' is not the same haircut as the 'Rachel' Phoebe and I will fucking fight you.

That's a good toast. I frequently hope for nights I can't remember.

Nervous Lois is a slut, I love her already.

I knew Melanie was going to suck the fun out of this game of 'I Never'. Mainly because I caught a glimpse of the previews but also because it's her and I bet she feels 'blessed' that Becca picked this drinking game.

Holy shit, Bitchy Phoebe saved the day with her home wrecking past! Didn't see that one coming up, and this is why I love sluts.

Back at the video store Lolly is supposed to be working at tonight, Keanu stops by for a visit and gets almost pressured into renting El Topo by Lolly's boss whose being all weird about it.

Something's haunting my dreams alright.

I think I just simultaneously figured out why I miss video stores, and why Netflix and avoiding human contact is sometimes the better choice.

Sebastian is so fucking lonely.

Back at the party, Melanie keeps trying to get Becca to open up while Lolly now thinks that this is the time to switch focus to her and Jamie. Becca is getting shafted on almost all sides. She should have drank more.
I think we threw 'supposed to' out a long time ago during the opening elevator sequence my tequila flavored Lolly-pop.

I did not know the no-local-bar-one-night-stand rule, that is a good rule. Rules akin to that one should be stuck to. If I stuck to rules like that then I probably wouldn't have to feel so weird about going back to the local strip club.

I tell you, you spill a drink on one stripper, con your way into 13 free shots, and ditch the DJ with the girl you promised him a threesome with and suddenly everything's awkward.
Note to self: always check the heads of frizzy and curly afro haired people for weed.

"Took a vote on you"
"Pick of the litter"

...Becca, smash that dude with the crystal ball and con your way into 13 free shots.

"I want a woman to like me for me, not because I am a huge douchebag."

Spooning's great, but have you tried forking?

I'm now convinced that this dude is what started cuddle parties.
Away from the all the potential one night stands for Becca, the groundwork for a potential bromance between Sebastian and Jamie is being laid down. While smoking a joint behind the dumpster at his video store, Sebastian tries to get Jamie to let him be his relationship guru.

This is what a guru looks like, take notes peoples.


And a new gorgeous contender steps into Becca's ring.

This show is starting to slightly remind me of those dating sim type games I play like Harvest Moon.

Before Becca can leave with the Gorgeous Contender, she goes to tell Lolly and finds her blabbing to the palm reading waitress about how Becca thinks she knows everything.

Lolly, don't you remember the purple Doc's?

I am falling in love with Becca's 'Oh yeah' and 'Oh shit' faces.

So Phoebe blew off a blind date with her future husband to seek one night stands with Becca.

This is the perfect face for someone who is realizing she may have just helped in erasing her future nieces and nephews. I hope you didn't like them too much.

Hindsight keeps throwing me for loops on who I do and do not like in it's show. I've gotta say, love Bitchy Phoebe's approach to creepy men.

"I think we're done here. ...That means you can go now."

I think I might need to use that as part of my closing speech to my customers on the phone. Damn lingerers.

Fine? Becca, fine? That's all you say before you time out/break up with Lolly?

So Lavine/Laveen/I don't care anymore is her last name? It's still has the Cosmo Kramer effect/affect/I give the fuck up.

I think that was the quickest end to a friendship break I've ever seen.

 photo onlyaquickie.png

But they were both blitzed so it's understandable.

How does keeping two drunk chicks from fighting and messing up your club get someone fired? I don't care, Paige seems like a cool chick so yay for her being in a better job where she doesn't have to hold people's sticky liquor hands.
"Well I guess we'll find out."

These almost feel like ominous words considering we know Lolly and Becca already broke up as friends once in their lifetime. But maybe Becca's right. Even though we're not getting to find out yet what happened between them, maybe with both of their determination to stay friends no matter what and to not let the past repeat anymore than it already has it will be different this time.

Maybe they can beat predestination if it was predestined to begin with. Sure, Phoebe's life with her future husband Courtney seems like it was predestined, but not everything has to be.

....I guess we'll find out.


  1. I completely dropped the ball on replying to this. Not even sure where the past few days went but I’m exhausted.

    Awww…Addy’s got a little crush on Lolly-pop. I’m diggin it :-D And you’re not alone; now we see why Sebastian lets her come and go as she pleases. Poor clueless guru, lol. Side note –I’m not sure how the writers are spelling Lolly's last name but if we find out she has a little brother named Adam…who dreams of being a rock star/sexiest man alive…and Becca’s disruption of the time/space continuum somehow ruins that… I will laugh my ass off. What other reason would the writers give her the last name Levine/Laveen/Screw it?

    I'm not sure if Becca's eyebrow arch face amuses me or frightens me. Perhaps both.

    Damn this episode for making me like Phoebe and slutty little Lois. At least Melanie is still annoying as hell.

    The no hookups in your 'home' bar rule sounded familiar to me - and I don't even drink (or hook up) ..something about not peeing in your own pool?

    Of course those assholes worked at Enron. We would have also accepted Goldman Sachs, AIG, or anything on Wall Street, really.

    I'm hoping that Hindsight has a fresh take on how Becca's choices affect her friends/family. Right now all I'm seeing is the McFly family photo fading in and out of existence.

    I think I had some more thoughts on ep 3...but it's almost time for ep 4 :)

    2. May I join the exhaustion train? :p My past two weeks have sucked.

      Oh, I'm definitely diggin' it. XD Or! What if Becca is the person that persuades him to *be* a rockstar! I also just noticed that Cosmo Kramer is also alliterative just like Lolly's name. Plot twist: Lolly is Cosmo's niece.

      Her eyebrow game is flawless and that's all you need to know, lol.

      Right? I'm also glad Melanie is still hateful, at least one of my thoughts on someone can stay static...until the next episode probably.

      So am I. It gets more interesting as it goes on...thankfully.


I wish my comment form was shiny.
