Hindsight On Hindsight 108

I can tell when I've taken too long with a promises post when I start getting cute cat talk comments from blogger friends. Yes you can has Hindsight 108 starting ..... nao!



We start off in a flash forward-back to the first time Becca meets Kevin. There's nothing gained from this other than what we already know, that Becca does indeed know of Kevin already and something bad and/or douchey may have happened with him, or else she wouldn't be acting standoffish. We got that from their door meeting at the end of the last episode. We kind of could have done without this particular flash forward-back. It wasn't a very long flash-whatever though. It's not like it makes a huge difference. The scene ends with Becca dodging questions about a relationship from Lolly and charitying her strawberry jam to Kevin.
***
At her job Becca keeps blurting out oddities like she was a Drew Barrymore before Drew Barrymore was Drew Barrymore. We have had enough time to acclimate to the time travel. C'mon girl, just say 'Yes I've been to a rave.' That's it. 

She also is trying to unleash viral marketing unto the world because Becca has to be the first at everything. No judgement, I'd do the same. You'll know if I've ever foud a way to time jump to the past because Lady Gaga will fade away like Marty and Lady Toten will replace her with a cackle.

I don't know, I really like Gaga's voice.
***

"I'm not interested in being part of this Bermuda Love Triangle."

This is absolutely why I love this chick. 
***

Another Kevin flash forward-back begins when Becca sees a street juggler. From the look on her face when she saw the juggler I almost expected her to run up to him and tell him some intrinsic detail about his life that would affect him in 10 years unless he did something about it. But no, just jogging her memory of Kevin. 
***
I'm starting to get the feeling Becca may have had an affair with Kevin.
***
Lolly is cute when she's flustered.
***

How could you not take this face to a rave? I would take her to all of them, every single one. 
***

Kevin, you're such a buttinski. Then again Lolly is a putinski, so...
***

"You're going to love each other!"

And affair halfway to confirmed. Look at that face.

'I am going to poison everyone.'
***

It makes me happy inside that Paige and Becca aren't mad about dick swapping with each other. 
***

Spider-Lolly, Spider-Lolly, doing whatever a Spider-Lolly does.
***

And another flash that ends with Kevin renewing Becca's lust for...apricots. I love being right. Absolutely love it. It's almost sexually gratifying. 
***
I know that Becca has qualms about telling people things that are going to happen and/or trying to change them. We've seen why. But when it comes to something like this, I think I would just tell Lolly what happened in the future-past. Just get it out of the way. Like, "Here's why I've been acting crazy. Do with that information what you will. I won't cock block you."

Something like that.
***

I love how they're all like, 'Is that the dude?'

He's got the aforementioned purple hair and he's sucking on a glow stick. I think we're in the clear.
***
'Boysenberry? Dem's fightin' words!'

Chill your purple ass down. 
***

That's right Lolly, glow sticks are more fun than drugs.

...Although sometimes it's the drugs that make the glow sticks fun. Like a weird catch 22.
***
Lolly has more faith in herself to navigate a subway system than I ever could. Instead of meeting back up with my friends at a rave the show would just have to flash forward a couple of years to me making friends with hobos, living in some underground homeless community and wondering what the over dwellers were up to as I thought of what once was. 

I'm really bad with directions and navigation sometimes, that's all I'm trying to say.
***
Becca thinks the universe wants her to get with Kevin. Or maybe the universe is trying to get you to show some willpower Becca, jeez. Just because it's there it doesn't mean you have to hop on it.
***

There's always that one painting that boggles your mind as to why it's being sold for such a price. With this I assume it's the size of it.
***

Bitch alert! Danger Paige Robinson!
***
Becca's crooked sticker skills are 2edgy4me. 

I do kind of miss all that Extreeeme! advertising that was so prevalent in my childhood.

*Guitar riff sounds in the distance as I blast off on my jet pack, roller blades permanently strapped to my feet.*
***

Well someone should tell Lolly.
***

We see Lolly rollin', she's not hatin', because she's on the fifth alphabetic letter.
***

Owen is now poor man's Jack Black.  Listen to his diction, it's totally the same.
***

I miss Starscape now. I have no clue if that is even still around.
***

So dicking Paige over, but not dicking her, seems to be Sean's favorite pastime.
***

Well color me a shocking shade of Boysenberry. I thought the new year scene was about Lolly dating Becca's brother and Becca finally telling Lolly he OD'ed, or something. 

If it was me I'd definitely hesitate telling Lolly as well, but I think I'd still tell her.  I mean in present time. Obviously in past time she kind of had to. Not really a choice there.
***

Oh my goth just tell her.
***

So Becca's blurting can be a good thing.
***

You know Becca, communication is the key to relationships.
***

Douchebag has a point. Paige didn't tell him this job was anything more than a cash grab, and she has been repeatedly rejecting him. It's actually not his fault if he moves on. I can absolutely understand her hesitancy but she made her move too little too late.
***

*Insert canned studio audience Oooo's and whistles here.*

New fan theory expanded on: 
I'm still partial to my fan theory that this is a TV show in universe created by Lolly. There are too many people that resemble other actors. This means they either are their actor counterpart in universe, as in Owen is what their Jack Black looks like. Or Lolly specifically picked those people because she couldn't get said actor, which is a complete Lolly thing to do.

"Hey! You totally look like Jack Black!"
"Are you coming on to me or insulting me?"
"I don't know but do you want to be on television?"

Tell me you can't see her having that exact conversation.

Oh gosh, only two more episodes left. Only two more!

Hindsight On Hindsight 107

I am now convinced the mother nature hates us and wants us to die. Either that or Ragnarok is finally upon us. This is just the beginning of a five year long winter, the end of which will see Loki's children being freed from their bonds and equal will attack equal. And if that's how shit is going down I'm finding the damn tree that's supposed to house the Norse Adam and Eve first...I may or may not sneak in some of you bitches as well. I'll do my best.




I would like to really quickly take this space to give a shout out to the voice to text capabilities of my phone for correctly spelling out Ragnarok. Even if it did immediately spell out rock block after I tried to congratulate it. You go little phone!

Now it's time to snuggle up under our Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle blankets because it's fucking cold, but also because there's another installment of Hindsight On Hindsight to get through.


I think I have now made peace with the fact that we'll never know which came first, the chicken or the-- ugh there I go again! I meant we'll never find out who called Becca to the hospital. And I...


Hmmmm

Ahem...well now because of this daydream sequence I don't care. Touché VH1. 
***


Becca, he can't think about sex all the time. We're in a government shut down, jeez! Checks before sex, girl.
***
Now that I re read that last sentence, 'Checks before sex' sounds like it should be some sort of sex ed motto. Know your partners medical history before you know them in the carnal sense people. It's just good advice really.
***



We walk in on Lolly crying about some Noxema girl on 90210. I never was into 90210, it was boring to me so I kind of don't care about this reference. I was also too young to really get it or appreciate it. Perhaps I should give it a second chance now that I'm older and possibly its past target demographic. We jump topics from the boring ass Thanksgiving Day Parade to Becca's unhappy vagina.

She's worried because her and Sean aren't having sex when they used to do it  quite literally everywhere. There is a good chance that Becca might be on Taxi Cab Confessions from what I'm gathering.
***

To be honest, maybe Sean is maturing and settling quicker than usual. I mean she is the one that fucked with every one's timeline. That kind of stuff has to play on your emotional state. 

However there really should have been some sort of getting back together sex. It usually happens and withholding sex could be a sign that maybe even Sean isn't still sure of this rekindling of their romance. I mean we haven't seen anything yet that would suggest that but, foreshadowing? 


Maybe he's calming down, maybe he's scared to get close. It's about 50/50 at this point.
***



I do have to give Sean props. At least he has the balls to talk face to face to the girl he was trying to woo not moments before and tell her that he's back with his ex. 

But in her place of work, dude? Tacky! When you have to work you don't want to get bad news. I even hate it when my family calls me with medical emergencies at my job. If I'm not able to leave right then and there, and chances are I'm not due to my status as supervisor and being broke, it just adds more stress.
***

I really wonder how this will affect Paige and Becca's relationship. I was liking the idea of them as friends.
***



At first I was confused why his father was riding his ass so hard. I mean yeah, he's making sucky decisions but his academic failings are on him not you. This is more of a High school talk than a college one. Then I realized his father is paying for his college ride, although not anymore. Now it's up to I-Think-I'm-John-Cusack Jamie.
***




"You can't be serious."

Gods Jamie, you're such a trust fund baby. What is this?
***


Becca's Aunt is going to be the middle aged version of Lolly. Calling it right now.
***



More like Awkward Cab Confessions. I can understand his nervousness, but he was the one that was walked out on. What could her family possibly have against him?

Although, he did punch out Andy Kelly.
***



Aaaaand Meerkat did not break up with Andy. Interesting.
***



I'm pretty sure that Becca is actually trying to put a subtle sleeper hold on Melanie in this scene, and I will not judge her.
***



Ever since the door Andy looks like he wants to poison everyone.
***



"If someone doesn't cut the mustard, you cut them off."

Preach, bitch!
***

I know that after Melanie asked if there was anything she could do Becca said, "String the cranberries." 

For a moment though, it really sounded like that first word was strangle. If Becca would have told her to strangle herself on Thanksgiving, I think I would have died.
***
"How kind of you to offer it to me."

Oh Melanie, you're just getting all of Becca's toss offs.
***



Seriously, I will poison everyone before the night is out.
***



"Just so there isn't any lingering confusion, I don't have feelings for her."

And I almost peed myself. Whatever gets you through sex with Meerkat.
***

Now we get to spy on Jamie stealing his father's money and almost getting caught trying to steal his RX pads. Bad Jamie, no drug of choice!
***


Oh Becca, you're going to have to drink a little more than that if both your mom and your nemesis are going to be ragging on you about marriage. 

May I suggest slipping a little Everclear into your wine? It always helps me.
***
I like how Sean just casually rubs his thumbs all over a recent burn like that shit won't hurt. Good job.
***
"This happened before."

Hmmm, if she is setting the timeline right, what will that say about their future relationship should they decide to stay together?
***


Giggidy.
***



So Meerkat's going to burn this bitch to the ground while Andy poisons the survivors. I don't like her but I do like homicidal couples. 

...conflicted.
***



Ugh, coke is creepy. Why couldn't he stay a silly stoner or a brooding drunk?
***
Selling coke will definitely cover your semester. Still gross.
***

Hoe, don't do it!


Oh my Gods.
***
It's OK, I still hold his heart on Twitter. I'm not bitter.
***
I'm certain that Melanie is doing this to piss off Becca. If I was her and I had just gone through all that bullshit with the kiss and then being petty, and then especially after hearing how my boyfriend was in a car accident because he was going to proclaim his love for my nemesis, I would not be preparing myself to say yes to the dress anytime soon. 
***

I too would like to curl into the fetal position after watching that. Make room.
***
I love Aunts that drink too much wine at family gatherings. Wine Aunt is my life goal, even if I'm more of a Vodka Shot Aunt. You catch the drift I'm throwing I'm sure.
***

This is the perpetual face of a Wine Aunt.
***

Jamie joins the tail end of Thanksgiving after his coke filled bathroom rendezvous. He seems way too chill. Why is he not cleaning everything in the house? Did he accidentally snort baking soda? 
***

"I think I need something stronger than wine."

Jamie is in his room. He could help.
***

I think an Arrested Developmentesque "I've made a huge mistake." belongs here.
***
Lolly may not think Melanie is stupid, but I do. And don't think I didn't notice Meerkat's doubting expressions while Lolly was rambling on about how much she respected the love Melanie had for Andy.
***

"I'm chasing this, but this is gone."

And here we witness the hazards of letting a Wine Aunt speak openly at a family gathering.
***



I was wondering where the hell Bitchy Phoebe was through out this whole gathering.
***
Wine Aunt is Bitchy Phoebe's mom. Good to know.
***
I'm getting the feeling that the trip to the Dominican Republic is something that has happened in the original timeline. If it has then I'm also confused how Becca can remember a Halloween costume she wore the year before but not this until this scene. 
***

Lolly may be more fun than Phoebe on the regular, but you weren't there a couple episodes back drunky. Don't completely discount your daughter.
***

Oh jeez, I know that look by now. Kevin is bad news. 



Absolutely.

Post Edit:
I posted this using the Blogger app. I'm now noticing that not only did the app switch my font colors halfway through this, it's also switched the font style and size. I've fixed the colors, but I've tried three times to get the lettering consistent, sorry for that.
