TV Show Review: Scream Queens

Posted on Updated on

4 stars to “Scream Queens” Season 2 – Episode 9 “Lovin the D.” The long-missed well-balanced camp in this week’s episode was on back with a vengeance. And I was thrilled. Where else can I laugh at the silliness of so many characters that actually remind me of some people I know!

Story

Season 2 picks up with several of Season 1’s survivors back in action, but at a new special hospital where they “cure the incurable.” The Green Meanie is exacting revenge for a wrongful death at the hospital over 25 years ago — and the sorority girls need to figure it out before they become its victim. If you don’t want to read any spoilers, skip this review!

In this episode, the fantastic Brooke Shields plays a daytime television talk show hostess who wants to be the first to have an on-the-air surgery to remove a 20 lb. tumor off of someone’s face. Yikes! The Chanel’s quickly jump into action to get a part of their favorite actor’s TV show and help perform the surgery. It’s a success and they get their own show out of it! Well, of course they do, they’re just perfect for this kind of drama.

Meanwhile, there are actually 3 Green Meanie’s all out to kill the hospital staff for different reasons.  Hester calls a summit to organize which one can kill which remaining victims. I do love a well-planned, well-organized murder where each of the killers tries to be fair in divvying up the remaining deaths! 🙂

A few more characters die, the hospital wins some awards and 1 of the Green Meanie killers is killed! Only 2 left to murder the final remaining cast: 4 Chanels, Hester, 2 doctors, 1 administrator, 1 mother, and 1 head nurse.  Who will survive!!! Oh yeah, the looney cop turned FBI agent (LOVE Niecy Nash) is still on ice being kept alive. Now you know she’s coming back to life!

Strengths

  1. The camp was fantastic this week, especially when it’s been way overdone or lacking the last few weeks.  From the last-minute requirement for the Chanel’s to take the MCATs, the medical board’s visit, the 3 killer summit and the mother gone crazy, it was totally ON-TARGET! Some weeks, the actors just miss the fine line between campy humor and silly parlor tricks. Not this week. I was glued to my TV.
  2. The ode to the death by grease fryer oil is back! And the one we thought was gonna burn to a crisp survives another week… but unfortunately, 1 of the Green Meanie’s doesn’t!

Suggestions

  1. I wish they would have held out the identify of all 3 killers until the last episode.  We learned one in episode 6, one in episode 7 and one in episode 8. It was still fun to figure out how everyone would die and in what order, but I wanted a big reveal. Maybe it will still happen.
  2. They better set the stage for a season 3. I was iffy along the way if I could take another season, but if it keeps the same level as it did in this episode… then it better be a rockin’ season finale next week.

Final Thoughts

I now have some new fun names to call my friends… you boozy old hag! To check more out about this series, go to http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4145384/?ref_=ttfc_fc_tt.
