objection: I hate the both of you.  
AARGH SO MUCH TV

COMMUNITY: OK, that was glorious. As a long(LONG)time L&O-watcher, I was utterly delighted at their level of detail – the fonts! The camera angles! The title cards! The outfits! Was it me, or did Troy & Abed both look unnecessarily hot in their detective coats and things? ("WALK IT OFF!") Goodness. And apparently Dean Pelton likes men in uniform, too. Preach. Michael K. Williams is always, always welcome, especially when he's mad about missing "Mama's Family," and I totally salute the Omar reference, though I of course would have liked him to say he wasn't buildin' no bookcase or something. I'm pretty sure Todd may snap and kill everyone soon, though. You can only butt-monkey someone so much. When I heard someone was dying I totally assumed it was Leonard, so I have to say I was shocked at the ending (although the Last-Minute Phone Call of Death is also an essential L&O staple). Poor Starburns! Or Starface, as Chalky White said. (HEH.) And it took me an embarrassingly long time to get the pun of the title. I'M GIFTED IN OTHER WAYS.

THE OFFICE: Really, show? REALLY? You think you can rip off "The One With the Proposal" from twelve years ago without me noticing? Because yeah, I remember Joey misunderstanding the silent auction and buying the Mr. Beaumont. I'm not a fool. "You're settin' sail up the Hudson! You've got the wind in your h--arms!" SMH, show. And we're really supposed to think Nellie's never had a taco? I like the idea of her trying to bond with Darryl, just because Darryl's deadpan amusement at stupid people is wonderful (dinkin' flicka), but that was just a stretch. I dunno, show. I just dunno anymore.

GREY'S ANATOMY: OK, all I have to say is that Callie's ramble about working with Owen and Teddy together is like defusing a bomb, in a haunted house, with bears everywhere, and the bears have knives, was pretty much the greatest thing I've ever heard. I love her so hard. The dead-baby thing was ridiculous and sad and of COURSE I cried, and I have a feeling the Morgan/Alex thing will play out really badly by season's end. She's not gonna go bananas and kill him, is she? IS she? Oh, no. D: Also, get out, April. Jesus does hate you--he sent you that absurdly gorgeous hunk of man and you don't appreciate it? Guuurrll...

AWAKE: That definitely has to be the first time that a pregnant-teen plotline made me go ":-O AWESOME!", because for the most part I ain't got time for that. I totally knew he'd knocked her up and I was facepalming so hard, but that was a great twist—we've been wondering if Michael and his wife would have another kid, but instead they're having a grandkid! And presumably not moving because of that . Very cool. And it was so sweet when he awkwardly sought out Emma and then hugged her. Oh, Lucius Malfoy. Also, PIERRE CHANG, IS THAT YOU? With an injured arm?! EVERYTHING IS LOST

SUPERNATURAL: WOW, OKAY, THAT CHICK WAS ME. Down to the elevator-dancing. That was kinda delightful. I wish she'd stuck around; I love the idea of Sam & Dean having a surrogate little sister. And I love that the extent of Dean's knowledge of lesbians is "pretend he has boobs." HEH. I'm very glad this Dick Roman plotline is actually starting to make sense and go somewhere, because I've been totally lost with the turducken and the experiments and the curing-cancer or whatever; Bobby's monologue was a little shamelessly expository, but I totally do the same thing when I write ~mysteries, so I can't hate. And good Lord A'mighty, I could not keep up with all those nerd references. I loved that Hermione was her fave--though I hope Sam was referring to PoA, not OotP, because Sirius wasn't really in danger in the Ministry; let's remember that. Oh, and Charlie's line that Hermione "ended up with the wrong--" made me sure that she ships Hermione/Ginny. COOL WITH IT. But I still don't like this Bobby thing; I assume we're heading for some big showdown where he ends up 'moving on,' or whatever, and that is such bullshit. I'll never understand the logic behind getting rid of him, Cas and the Impala. Just...what.

ONCE UPON A TIME: YES I NOTICED THE OCEANIC PLANE. \8D/ AND THE 8:15 MENTION AND "A LEAP OF FAITH" AND "COURSE CORRECTION" AND PHUKET (lol seriously "Stranger in a Strange Land" tho? Can we not? Ever?) MY BABY. That stuff alone made it a perf ep, but I also really enjoyed the Emma development – I know everyone's hating on her for kidnapping Henry, and that was a pretty bad plan, but I still like her and when she said she was ready to be his mom I realized that she really is; she's really grown a lot since the pilot and I think she really loves him. I think Regina's starting to unravel and that cannot be good for anyone; Henry totally facing her down was kinda awesome but also a bit troubling: what does he think will happen to her? He says "good will win," but does he think she'll actually die? Because that's what happens in fairy tales, and that's…pretty dark. She did raise him. I'm not sure there. Loved the weird parallels with Regina finding David and August 'finding' Emma – I guess I have to take back my claims that the show would take care to cast someone who looked like a young Eion Bailey, but whatever, that kid was cute, and oh my god baby Emma was making adorable faces at him and that warmed even my cantankerous heart:

________ kdsjkdjfkljdks PRECIOUS. So now I feel a little weird shipping them, but whatever, too late now. That scene in the woods was intense, and I don't blame her for not believing yet at all. She's never really trusted anyone, let alone believed in stuff like magic, before coming to Storybrooke, and she's never really been entrusted with anything that mattered, let alone something THIS huge...yeah, I get it. And you'd think August would get it a little too, since he shares her weird feelings of guilt about abandoning her and letting his father down and stuff. So I basically ship Emma with everyone, still.

GAME OF THRONES: MAMA NOOOOOOOOO I KNEW IT WAS COMING but I didn't think it'd be the first damn scene. ;___; But as soon as I saw Renly with Cat and Brienne I was like OH GOD NO and--well, OK, Brienne totally broke my heart, but I am pressed as fuck at Loras' underreaction. I seriously wanted to see him pull an Achilles and go apeshit and kill everyone, but instead he just looked kind of...moderately upset. Having Brienne be more upset than he was just sort of gave the wrong impression, I think. I really wish they'd developed that relationship more. :\ I know they didn't really have time, but...well, at least Margaery's still awesome, and we got my other faves--Brienne and Cat in the woods killed me, when they were swearing oaths to each other, because you know no one's ever been that kind to Brienne before. :( LADIES! Tyrion and Bronn continue to light up my life in every way ("Demon monkey?!"); I'd happy watch an hour of their medieval buddy-cop show every Sunday night, tbh. I'm really liking the development of Theon; we see that he's kind of a dick, but we also understand why he'd be so resentful, since everyone disses him all the time. Davos and Stannis were great; I love the shifting balance of trust between them. It's kinda sad, but awesome. I'm not sure about Dany/Jorah, though--I want to like and/or ship them, but I find it awkward the way he's mooning over her and she's just not having it. In the book she really seemed to be almost exasperated with him right away and it just threw off their balance. I did like the moment when she realized that he was in love with her after all and didn't quite know what to do with it, though, so I hope they alter that a little for the show. And I'm glad Doreah's still alive because I ship it so hard. And Arya continues to be the actual greatest, of course; standing up to Tywin, sort of, was so badass; talk about knowing how to play the game. That "anyone can die" looked like a meek agreement, and yet it was totally a threat at the same time--and he kinda respected it! Oh, if I end up liking show!Tywin I'm gonna be so annoyed. The "#TYWINNING" gifs aren't helping. AND ARYA/GENDRY IS THE FIRE OF MY LOINS:

DAAAAMN, GENDRY, DON'T HURT NOBODY. I mean, unless you have to. I love that two weeks ago Joe Dempsie is like "but I'm 24, and she's 14! So it can't happen!" and then we get gratuitous slow pan-ups like that. Heh. Troll away, my sweet. AND JAQEN. Oh my god, dat accent. A man can get it. Forever and ever. Those scenes were fab. Though I've heard people complaining that he mentioned the Red God, but I just checked the book and that's what he says there. And he also says "only death can pay for life," like Mirri Maz Dur, so...are we supposed to think he's just sort of a student of the world? Oh, I don't know, I just enjoy looking at him.

THE BORGIAS: (The TV Fanatic recap for this episode is titled "Sure, I Like Dags." HA!) And just went GoT decides to tone down the crazy for the week, a little, we have Cardinal Goodhair and his ginger assassin boyfriend torturing the fuck out of people with pointy crowns and ridiculously homoerotic slow-motion stabbing. *double facepalm* Oh, SHOW. And nuns! Dead nuns! The hell?! I've never been a big fan of Ursula or that relationship, especially after that last scene with Cesare, but goddamn, that was harsh. But I do like Cesare being in charge of shit. And I of course love Lucrezia & Giulia teaming up; her schooling all those old dudes with flour (with flour!) was awesome. Interesting that brother & sister are both kind of taking hold of more power, but they're going in opposite directions morally. Strange lack of Juan this week, after all the fuckery last week & the week before, but I guess he's off plotting somewhere. And is it me, or do people mumble on this show? Maybe I'm just losing my hearing, but the French king, my darling Michelotto and eventually Cesare occasionally are just really hard to understand, especially when they're being all angsty and brooding. I guess that's the price I pay. Apparently we're getting Michelotto backstory next week! \o/ Please don't let this be another "Gimcrack and Bunkum" situation. My heart can't take it.

SMASH: GOOD LORD, Ivy and Dev?! What is this, "Switched at Birth"?! (Not...not that I watched that show. Ever. Or every episode. No, not I. EDIT: HA! I'm not the only one who thought that! Suck it!) Are we supposed to think they didn't know each other? Because Karen had to have mentioned Ivy by name, and the look on Ivy's face made me think she knew who he was...good grief. It's kind of lame that they made him the bad guy in the relationship when she's been neglecting him In The Name Of Theatre like all season (I'm gonna say "I'm in tech!" whenever I want to get out of doing something; it'll be my new "I would prefer not to"), though it's also kinda ridic that he'd blame her for the Washington thing when he didn't even tell her about it. Sheesh. They're both kinda annoying. Derek/Rebecca was inevitable, though I was baffled by how fast it happened--like, really, he was won over just by her "Happy Birthday"? Maybe it was just really good cake. And I'm amused that they're being kind of meta about Ellis being a sniveling little eavesdropper (they sent him out to get a neti pot? While they were...? Oh, never mind.) Tom/Sam continue to be adorable; it was a little absurd to suggest that dancers' lives END once they can't perform anymore--like, you can teach, guys--but I like that they bonded more by the end, and I also liked that his family wasn't stereotypically ragingly homophobic. (Anything that ends with an interracial gay couple making out in plain sight in the 'burbs is something I will enjoy.) But wow, Julia is the actual worst. Eileen was totally right; it was her mistake to bang him & she doesn't get to screw over the whole production because of it. And now we're getting more Boring Michael and Dreadful Leo. I hope they at least give Frank more to do to make up for it. And Lawd, next week--poison peanuts! Called it!

Here, have another gif for your time:

Um, I LOVE IT and am THE OPPOSITE OF MAD (and heeee I'd forgotten about that but it does totally have elements of both! Mostly in the flashbacks! but that's okay, just because the present timeline of the story is sadder and colder all it does is make the funny happy bits brighter and deepens the whole story overall, I would NEVER get upset at someone for adding depth. Stories are like sketches - the more shadows the better)

Anya: got → khaleesierethesunrises on May 1st, 2012 11:43 am (UTC)
OUAT: ugh people hating on my girl Emma can gtfo. There is way too much hate sometimes in this fandom (usually stemming from an irrational defense of another character - like Rumpel fans loathing August now after last week even though we don't know the full story behind why August/Pinocchio hates him and Rumpel/Gold has done some pretty dick things in his time).

Obviously it's not good that Emma just drove off with Henry. The show did a good job with that end scene of making it clear that we're not supposed to support that irrational decision. It's not going to work out how Emma envisions it and we're not supposed to want that either. And I think it's clear that, even though we don't like it, we can also understand why Emma did it though, especially after her scene with August.

And on that note, I loved that scene because it said so much for her character. I think it's ridiculous if people expect her to just suddenly believe given her character. And we have gotten progress on this front (see: Hat Trick) but it's going to take time. This show is about Emma's journey as a character just as much as it is about breaking the curse. I also really loved the whole thing about everyone's happiness resting on her shoulders because that's a huge responsibility and it'd freak me out too.

In other news, I'm having a hard time accepting that she and August haven't macked on each other's face. And I don't trust the Blue Fairy.

GAME OF THRONES: I remember Loras having a much more visceral reaction to Renly's death in the book but uuuuggghhhh show!Loras is just pissing me off. He's such a child and so petulant and I really don't like. Thank goodness he has the flawless Margaery there or he'd already be fucked.

But then again we all know I have my Dragonstone OT3 soooooooooo the Highgarden OT3 was never my thing. But dkfjghkdfg so glad they left in Stannis' line about grieving the brother he knew as a boy because Baratheon brothers feeeeeeeels. Oh gosh they always take me by surprise. But oh my god I still love Stannis and Davos endlessly.

Brienne and Cat, Tyrion and Bronn ♥ Duos of awesome make me happy.

I totally ship Dany and Jorah in all its fucked up complexities. I know some people really don't like Jorah but urgh, I can't help but still have my heart go out to him while acknowledging his flaws. I am curious as to how they're going to develop their relationship compared to the book. It'll be interesting. But I love Dany and Doreah as well.
extraordinary machine.la_petite_singe on May 1st, 2012 06:44 pm (UTC)
This fandom seems...very silly sometimes. Not as bad as the Smash fans, who responded to this week's ep with "EVERYONE IS A WHORE" (no, really), but there does seem to be a lot of h8. And I don't really hate anyone! I'm more worried about them trying to leave Storybrooke than about the kidnapping part, but Emma doesn't fully understand the No One's Allowed To Leave Evar thing yet, so...I mean, obviously she has reason to believe that he's in danger with Regina. I just really like her own arc--like, she wasn't utterly emotionless and ~damaged at the beginning, but she was used to being on her own and only answering to herself, and this newfound sense of community in this tiny town is nice, but also really overwhelming. So I get it. And when they were standing all close in that scene I was like :D!!!! and then she's like "WELL THEN YOU'RE SCREWED" and I was like "...so you're not gonna make out now, then. :\" BOO!

I was just re-skimming ACoK last night and it said he "went mad" and slaughtered three dudes! Like, that is not the same as sadfacing! Maybe they wanted to give the moment entirely to Brienne and we'll get his Roaring Rampage of Revenge later...but I doubt it; we don't even see him that much later on, do we? GAH. ANNOYED. But we've got Margie, and she's clearly the superior sibling, so. My secondary OT3 was kinda Tyrion/Shae/Bronn, although I know that...doesn't end well either. D: D: The Davos/Stannis scenes are always so good, but so quick! Stupid show with 50 million characters!

I like the idea of Dany/Jorah a lot, but it just seemed like it went from this unspoken flirtation to him being clingy and her being annoyed really fast. :\ I hope the show does something a little more...subtle and elegant there. (And hey, that's another OT3! I WILL ALWAYS FIND ONE.)
Anya: once upon a time → emmaerethesunrises on May 2nd, 2012 01:03 pm (UTC)
I'm not worried about them leaving Storybrooke because both of them are allowed to. And she just did previously in the episode with August. Nothing should happen to either Emma or Henry because of leaving Storybrooke. Regina messing with something on the other hand... but yes yes totally, I really love who Emma is as a character and this arc they've developed for her. I'm also so excited for August's development, both in regards to making Geppetto proud and looking out for Emma. Especially if it involves make-outs. (Emma can make out with Jefferson too if she wants.)

Yeaaaaaah. I doubt we're gonna get much development with Loras there. Which I'm not bothered by since I don't particularly care for him but it does change his character quite a bit. ugh, yeah, not excited to see them depict Shae's end. I still love her and that OT3. ):

Agreed! I know Jorah isn't the most respectable of characters but I still can't help but love him and Dany. I'm really eager/anxious for them.

I need to catch up on OUAT!

As for GoT, your thoughts are A++++++++++++

I was kind of hoping we'd get more Renly? Like, the extent to which he was featured in the promos and interviews and stuff made me think that they'd made him more major than he'd been in the books. Obv. not! D:

Brienne and Cat was the best. As were the bromances. ALL OF THEM <3

I knew his death was coming soon, and someone at ONTD suggested that it'd be the beginning of the ep, so you'd think they would've spent more time on him in the first half of the season. :\ I just really like him, man. I know he's not a POV character, but...alas; can't like anyone in this damn series. It only leads to creys.

I would seriously watch a show of just Brienne/Cat and Tyrion/Bronn tromping around being awesome. Can that happen??

(beta is working on it right now. :DDDDDDD I honestly dunno if anyone will dig it, but I had so much fun with it omg)

All of the Lost references on OUAT are killing me. WE HAVE TO GO BACK. I'm going to have to do a marathon this summer.

I haven't been able to form coherent thoughts about GoT yet. I'm still stuck on Arya! BRIENNE! Nearly Naked Gendry!

Right?? Ugh, spot-the-reference is like my fave thing ever anyway, but when it's for Lost... I guess that wasn't really 815, since that was going from Australia to L.A. and probably wouldn't have passed over Maine or whatever...BUT STILL, HEADCANON FOREVER

All my faves! Though needed moar Jaime. I'm starting to miss him.

Joe Dempsie is like "but I'm 24, and she's 14! So it can't happen!" and then we get gratuitous slow pan-ups like that.

Yeah, and then Arya's sideface 'I'm not looking but I'm looking' glance.

Right?? She had, like, a legit "werq it" expression. Man, I love her. Those gifs will be so useful.

COMMUNITY IS PERFECTION. And because I assume you watch The Wire based on your review, my other need for a reference would be totally fulfilled if Troy/Abed inspected a yam or something and went "cool. cool cool cool." to the effect of McNulty/Bunk going "fuck" in that season 1 scene.

I think The Office is used to paying homage to various Tv shows, so uh, I dunno. It's certainly not the greatest this season.

GAME OF THRONES. MY EMOTIONS.

...*hangs head* I actually don't. I am very aware of it because TV is my job, but I've never properly watched it. D: I know I should!

I...suppose. And Joey/Dwight would make a hilarious buddy comedy, but STILL, that was just lazy. I miss S2-4 so much. :(

ALL OF THE EMOTIONS! Gah, I love so many people.

I'll never understand the logic behind getting rid of him, Cas and the Impala. Just...what. Me either, girl..me either! I dont understand it at all and I dont like it!

I loved Arya/Gendry and Jaquen parts KILLED me. UNF. Why are the Stark children so badass with their stare downs and one liners?

It just...it just almost feels like they went "let's see, what are the essential staples of the show? What are the fans' favorite parts? WELL, LET'S GET RID OF THOSE BECAUSE WE CAN" and I'm just like "...really, tho." I'm all for mixing things up in later seasons, but there's just no reason to change the backbone of the show just for the sake of it. Crikey.

I LOVE THE STARKS. All of them. Despite their occasionally-questionable life choices. They're just awesome. <3

OMG GENDRY/ARYA IS A THING I DON'T CARE WHAT JOE SAYS. he just doesn't want to come off as a creeper in public but he secretly ships it too okay.

Oh yeah and I totally agree about dany/jorah. the only reason people ship them on the show is cause they cast such a hottie as jorah instead of the ugly old dude he's supposed to be. dany was so not into him though. i don't think they should change that on the show just cause they accidentally cast someone way too attractive for the part.

HEE, it's true! I mean, personally I don't need them to hit it immediately; they can just hang around and be awesome together and then get to that later. :D And srsly, the way they're filming it, with all their looks and side-eyes--c'mon. Soulmates of win, tbh.

Iain Glen is just unnecessarily sexy. It'd be annoying if they changed the whole thing and just made it into some intense love story, but at the same time I hate the way their dynamic kinda went downhill and I might like to see it handled more...kindly. Something. Less awkwardly, anyway.

I... still don't get the pun in the Community episode title. HALP. I TOO AM GIFTED IN OTHER WAYS.

They're playing Dany/Jorah exactly right on the show, at least in terms of faithfulness to the text - I was worried that they'd have Dany be into him or something. It's already awkward enough the Iain Glen is so smoking hot. I'm ~concerned that fandom is going to be mad at Dany for dissing that. So yeah, I can't really ship then in any incarnation because Dany is all DNW and thus so am I.

I already love show!Tywin and it's... a problem. And Bryan Cogman shutting down people for inaccurately nitpicking the portrayal of Jaqen was so beautiful to me.

Hee! Lupine = wolf, urology = ...well, dick. So Dick Wolf. :D Pretty sneaky, sis.

I'm not sure they won't, honestly. :P I mean, I haven't read ADWD yet, but as far as I can tell she doesn't get any kind of legit love interest, and I have a bad feeling the showrunners are gonna be like "this is boring! She needs to get naked with someone again!" I'd rather they didn't, but...I dunno, I just don't really get them in the books. He really seemed to set it up as going somewhere, and then Dany's just like "no thx." Which is fine, but it just seems a little aimless. But I haven't finished reading, so I cannot properly comment. (Fandom already dislikes her, doesn't it? :P She's not my fave, but the hate is very annoying.)

HA, I didn't know about that! That's kinda awesome. Like that fan complaining about Mel & Stannis hittin' it and Carice responding with the accurate book quote. This fandom, man. Some people are awesome and I love the actual material and all, but it's rare to see fans legitimately arguing with actual canon. Like they're all mad about Renly/Loras and GRRM is like "...no, yeah, that's in the book" and they're like NO SHUT UP WE DON'T WANT TO SEE IT. Good Lord.

I've heard rumors that they're going to be playing the Xaro/Dany courtship a little straighter on the show (haha... literally). I didn't think there was a lot of hate for Dany, but there is a lot of moaning about her being boring. Which... fair enough in a lot of respects (though some of the haterade has a lot of gross racist connotations "get out of the East where people have silly names" and all that - it depends on the language).
