Harper's Island is made of so much fail. It's supposedly based on "And Then There Were None" but what made that story work was the psychological aspect; the fear that comes from knowing people are being picked off one by one, knowing that someone will be next, and knowing that someone among them was a killer. The paranoia was what fueled the drama. We have none of that on Harpers Island. Nobody seems to notice that people are disappearing (which is ridiculous) and it keeps everybody blissfully unaware of the danger. And that my friends is why this show fails so utterly.

"Whatever It Takes" - Lifehouse

A strangled smile fell from your face
It kills me that I hurt you this way
The worst part is that I didn't even know
Now there's a million reasons for you to go
But if you can find a reason to stay

I'll do whatever it takes
To turn this around
I know what's at stake
I know that I've let you down
And if you give me a chance
Believe that I can change
I'll keep us together whatever it takes

She said "If we're gonna make this work
You gotta let me inside even though it hurts
Don't hide the broken parts that I need to see"
She said "Like it or not it's the way it's gotta be
You gotta love yourself if you can ever love me"

I'll do whatever it takes
To turn this around
I know what's at stake
I know that I've let you down
And if you give me a chance
And give me a break
I'll keep us together
I know you deserve much better

But remember the time I told you the way that I felt
That I'd be lost without you and never find myself
Let's hold onto each other above everything else
Start over, start over

I'll do whatever it takes
To turn this around
I know what's at stake
I know that I've let you down
And if you give me a chance
Believe that I can change
I'll keep us together whatever it takes

Our friends don't always know us as well as they think, particularly when it comes to likes and dislikes. Which popular book, movie, band, food, TV show, etc. would your friends be surprised to hear that you don't like

I am quite vocal about the stuff I dislike so people pretty much know all the stuff I really really dislike already. And actually the more popular something is the less likely I am to like it.

P.S. So far the Criminal Minds novels are not that great. Better than the Supernatural ones but still not as good as the show. It really annoys me how they keep describing the characters and what has happened on the show before. It's written like "Criminal Minds for Dummies Beginners". But there was one line in the last book that I read and loved. It's a line from Rossi to Hotch:

"With all due respect Aaron remove the stick from where you're sitting and get real."

Rossi so would say that and now I want him to say it on the show. :P
