Let me tell you a secret....  
++ If anyone still would like a Christmas card, please go to this post and give me your address. Also let me know if you want to send me one so I can give you mine. *g*

++ In the midst of finding new fandoms to get attached to, I've come across one that has surprised me. Pretty Little Liars. Has anyone else watched this season so far? It's good, like really good. I haven't read the books, but I really like it so far and the show really does great with the mysteries and the characters and their relationships. I definitely recommend it for those who like teen dramas that have mysteries. Also, alexwhitman25? I downloaded all of the first season of The Vampire Diaries and will be starting that soon after I finish with Pretty Little Liars. I've also been catching up on the new Hawaii 5-0 and I also like that, too. It's your typical procedural crime show of course, but with Daniel Dae Kim and the lovely Grace Park. Seeing more Asians on my television is a good thing, I mean they had Dichen Lachman in one of the previous episodes. How awesome is that? \O/

++ I also rewatched the third season of Veronica Mars and....I don't understand the negativity people had for it. I thought it was way better than the second season, and actually felt like the first season writing/acting wise, and I'm happy where it ended off, inconclusive probably but with the relationships of characters it was nice, and Veronica had gotten her groove back. So I don't understand the amount of hate it got.

++ Reading articles like this and this make me really pissed off and bitter about what happened with Caprica. For a network that says they are behind the BSG franchise, nothing of what they've done supports such a claim at all. It disappoints and infuriates me, it also makes me even more adamant in fighting against it.


It is almost finally here! Anyone going to the midnight showing? Unfortunately I cannot, however I will be planning on going this weekend for sure and I most certainly am going to be buying a midnight ticket when Part 2 comes out next year. *shaking and crying*

Dichen Lachman is gorgeous. Never seen her in anything though.

;~; I wish I could go to a midnight showing of Potter, but alas.. I have no money currently and no company, so I'll have to wait till next week to see the movie. Goddammit.

I know her from Dollhouse, and not only is she gorgeous but amazingly talented. ♥

Awwww, I'm sorry. :(

Hee, I just started on Hawaii 5-0 and love it. Scott Canaan is freaking adorable as Danny.

They picked great actors for the show, I like their chemistry with each other. And yes, there are some particular slashiness that I saw even without my slash goggles on. ;)

Yay for The Vampire Diaries! That show just keeps getting more awesome.

I didn't like the third season of VM. I'm not really sure why. I marathoned all three seasons without knowing any opinions on the show, and I found myself struggling to finish it.
Renée: BTVS. Buffy Summers.rogueslayer452 on November 16th, 2010 03:39 pm (UTC)
I keep hearing that, so it makes me excited to finally get to see what everyone is talking about. :D

Funnily I didn't watch the third season until after it had been canceled, because I had heard some people complain about it and I knew how I felt after the second season. But after seeing it I didn't see what there is to dislike about it. I don't know. I think I disliked the second season more than the third one. And of course the first season will always remain awesome.
goldenusagigoldenusagi on November 17th, 2010 01:12 am (UTC)
I'm rewatching the second season now, and I'm finding things over the top in some cases and not making sense in others. The first season was just so incredibly put together.

Yay! I'd love to know what you think.

'It's your typical procedural crime show of course, but with Daniel Dae Kim and the lovely Grace Park. Seeing more Asians on my television is a good thing, I mean they had Dichen Lachman in one of the previous episodes. How awesome is that? \O/'
I know!
Renéerogueslayer452 on November 16th, 2010 05:08 pm (UTC)
I really like it so far. I like the Steve and Danny chemistry. I randomly saw one episode before and immediately I went "omg slash right thar" and I lol'd because either I have my slash goggles on too tight or the chemistry is just like that where you don't need slash goggles to see it. Am I imagining it or is it that obvious? lol ;p

Of course I wouldn't have gotten into the show had it not been for Grace Park, because I love her. ♥ She's fantastic on the show too, and I totally didn't expect to see Masi Oka on there! What a nice surprise! And can we just talk about Daniel Dae Kim for a second? Holy shit, that man is fine. *__*

Considering that in a few episodes minor characters have said that Danny and Steve are married/mistaken them for married, and H5-O's pilot was written by the same guys who wrote the Star Trek movie, I think the writers really are putting sub-text in a propose. As for the chemistry between Scott and Alex, the writers have said that they wanted two actors with great chemistry because Steve and Danny's relationship is very important to the fan!girls show.

'And can we just talk about Daniel Dae Kim for a second? Holy shit, that man is fine. *__*'
Oh yes! Every time they have a scene where he's on that motorcycle I swoon.

I'll say. Hee! ;D

I've always found that man attractive but seeing him in this show, especially that motorcycle and in suits? Mama Mia, break me off a piece of that! XD

Yep. I'm hoping they have some kind of gag reel on the dvd :D

The timeline on the second Caprica article is soooo frustrating. I know Syfy likes its pointless hiatuses but seeing it visually - ugh.

I stopped watching VM in the middle of season three, so it's possible there are episodes I didn't give a fair chance to -- looking back some of it was probably more about my lingering season 2 bitterness.

HARRY POTTER EEEE! I probably won't get a chance to see it until Saturday or Sunday, boo.

It really puts things into perspective on how Syfy dealt with it and how they continue to cover themselves up. It's frustrating and infuriating. It's funny because they keep saying that they love BSG, yet they pull off shit like this. I betcha anything they're gonna do the exact same thing with Blood and Chrome, as well. :/

Oh believe me, I was bitter from S2 too which is why I didn't watch S3 when it aired. It was only afterwards that I decided to watch it. It's not as bad as people make it out to be, to be honest, and watching it all the way through I actually kinda loved it.

Same here. I can't make it for Friday but definitely going Saturday or Sunday. I just can't believe it's almost here..... \O/

Part of me wants to, another part of me wants to wait until it returns here (whenever that may be), and another part wants to wait until the DVDs which will be available to buy on December 21st. But I'm really tempted. Though the downloads are very medium quality. I've downloaded/uploaded them for the BSG episode community here on LJ for others, but haven't watched them. But I heard they were really good, like absolutely fantastic and getting even better.

I'm also praising SPACE/Canada for airing the remaining episodes, getting the word out. Syfy really just decided to fuck with everything, didn't they?

Really? People are requesting them? That's awesome! :D

I'm still angry and bitter because why would they do that? And it seemed like they were never behind it because of how they treated it from the beginning and how they continued to treat it and their excuses are inexcusable, in my honest opinion. They cannot call those shots without realizing that they are at fault for not even caring for the show. I mean seriously, fuck you Syfy. You say you are behind anything BSG and you pull shit like this, you are fucking liars. >:|

Pretty Little Liars is so addicting lol. The vampire diaries starts off slow and luzly, and then next thing you know you're addicted to it's crazy epic-ness. Who knew it would turn out to be one of the best shows on?

I'm going to see Harry Potter on Monday. Midnight showings are probably way more insane than the time I went to see the Mummy 2(and it wasn't even a midnight showing lol). It was so packed we had to split up and three of us spent the movie having to look up to watch because those were one of the few seats that were open lol.
Renée: LORD CASCAS!rogueslayer452 on November 16th, 2010 11:01 pm (UTC)
It is addicting! I watched the pilot yesterday and I just have one more episode until I'm finally caught up. XD

I heard that TVD starts off rather lulzy but then he hits it off rather quick several episodes in, like going from bad to amazing instantly. I've heard so many good things about it that I really want to jump on that bandwagon.

LOL! I remember going to the midnight showing for POA and I was in the exact same situation. I think I was in the second row and we were looking up the entire time, getting whiplash. It was uncomfortable but worth it. ;D
icecoldrain: Stock - Cupcakesicecoldrain on November 17th, 2010 12:42 am (UTC)
I think they need to ditch the singing though. idk why shows that have actors who can sing feel the need to have them sing on the show. It's like really? lol. It only happened once on this show but it was like no1curr lol.

It was(and still kinda is lol). But the first episode had diary writing with fog and a random Damon!crow. It was like LOL WHAT IS THIS.

I saw CoS on the first night it was out and we got free posters. But we had to sit on the side of the row and these really annoying people were sitting front of us(they kept turning and staring at us through the movie). But all in all it was good lol.

But ew second row is awful, good thing I wasn't that close when I saw the Mummy 2. It would've felt like staring at the ceiling in the second row lol.
Renéerogueslayer452 on November 17th, 2010 08:41 am (UTC)
I actually liked Lucy Hale's singing, to be honest. I felt it was kind of awesome. I don't mind actors who let out their vocals on shows that otherwise wouldn't have them featured. For example, on Battlestar Galactica an actor unleashed his opera-singing ability for an entire episode and it was a pleasant surprise. So yeah, I don't really mind it. She has a lovely singing voice so I liked it. *shrug*


Hee, I'm planning on getting midnight tickets for Part 2 and praying that I don't end up getting whiplash like last time. I'll be racing and pushing people to get a decent seat. ;)

nesdy on November 17th, 2010 03:53 am (UTC)
I still can't believe that Caprica was cancelled. I don't think it was doing that bad in ratings for Syfy. I'm pretty convinced that it is probably because they didn't want to have both Caprica and Blood and Chrome airing at the same time. Oh, well. Another stupid cancellation on my list u.u

Harry Potter!!!! <3 I cannot go to the midnight showing, because I have an 8 o'clock class the next day T__T And I have a big event on Friday at my university, so it will have to wait until Sunday for me. So excited, though!!
Renée: BSG. ALL ALONG THE WATCHTOWER.rogueslayer452 on November 17th, 2010 08:25 am (UTC)
It was doing relatively well, at least I thought it was for a new show at least. It would have been even better had they not fucked with extending the hiatus as long as they did and switching days and pulling it out again until next year. I mean they didn't do that with Haven, another new Syfy show that I really love, and while it didn't get exceptionally high ratings it was approved for a second season. Why didn't Caprica? It was just poorly treated and for them to say otherwise they are big fat liars. I just, ugh. :/

I swear I'm not stalking you but I was scrawling through my friends' entries and I saw you mentioned Veronica Mars. I loved Veronica Mars and I adored the third season. Like you, I thought the third season was better than the second. I'm still baffled that so many people had an issue with the third season and Veronica :/

I'm happy to learn I'm not alone in my love of s3 Veronica Mars *hugs you* :D
Renée: Inara/Kaylee. <3rogueslayer452 on November 17th, 2010 07:37 pm (UTC)
You're totally not stalking, bb! We're friended with similar interests, are we not? I don't consider that stalking at all. ♥

Yeah, I don't understand the issues and dislike either. When you look at the season as a whole objectively, it's definitely better than the second season and has more of a S1 vibe than anything else. I think people were upset about how Veronica treated Logan which, I'm sorry, but Logan was annoying as fuck. People automatically woobified him which is just irritating. He was an asshole, in my opinion, and Veronica deserved so much better than him. They went nowhere fast and I'm glad they never got back together. /biased opinion is biased and opinionated

But yes, I definitely have a newfound love for the season. So, many hugs back to you too. :D
inkstaind_dream: threesomeinkstaind_dream on November 17th, 2010 07:44 pm (UTC)
Lol see that's the thing about me. I love Logan, but I don't let my love for the character blind me to some of his flaws. He was a major jackass at time, especially in season 1. I remember when Veronica found out how he treated her at Shelly's party and I thought his behavior was appalling, and yet every was upset that Veronica hurt his feelings in suspecting him of Lilly's death. I mean given their history, I always hated how people were willing to go "aww, poor Logan",and not think that Veronica had good reason to suspect him.

I loved Logan/Veronica and even though they broke up in Season 3, I didn't hate either character for it. I always thought people choosing to hate on the heroine of the show just to side with Logan as baffling. Veronica had her faults but so did Logan, and I hate that no one was willing to see that lol. I'm glad to know I wasn't the only one who loved Veronica in the end.
Renée: BSG. Cylon women are ftw.rogueslayer452 on November 17th, 2010 07:54 pm (UTC)
That's the unfortunate thing about fandom. Some of them don't understand that there are both sides to consider, not just one character and the other character is totally to blame. And fandom always seems to blame the females, never the males, especially male characters they seemingly adore. Which might even seem misogynistic, when you think about it. :/

I'll always love Veronica, no matter what. And Logan is alright too in his own way, but I just didn't enjoy them together. At least not past S1. I felt they were kind of unhealthy for each other. But I could deal with them being friends, had they gotten over their issues.
inkstaind_dream: warrior le fayinkstaind_dream on November 17th, 2010 07:59 pm (UTC)
*stares at you in awe* I swear it's like we are sharing a brain right now

In some of my favorite shows, like Vampire Diaries for instance, I always feel when it comes to a couple, fans will most likely side with the male character because they're in love with him. And I hate that with a passion. I hate how easy it is to be pissed with the woman character and find any reason to side with the male character just because you love him.

I feel better that there are some level headed fans in the world lol. And even though I adored Logan/Veronica they were unhealthy for each other lol, I am mature enough to admit that :)
Renée: BSG. Six. Made of awesome.rogueslayer452 on November 17th, 2010 08:16 pm (UTC)
Awwwww. *smishes you*

I know there aren't that many people in fandom that do that, but the majority of those that do are the loudest of the bunch and I don't think they realize what they're doing. Or they do, but try to hide behind their double standard. For me, Veronica Mars was a show that was showing us those kinds of mistreatment of women and I would have thought that fans would have picked up on that. Look at all the shit Veronica has gone through, you know? She has her flaws sure but every single character had their flaws. Look at Keith and what he tried to do in the third season with that married woman. Turn the tables and had it been Veronica in that position, people would be far harsher on her than on Keith. Or Logan, even though he cheated on Veronica with freaking Madison and people were angry at Veronica for yelling and accusing him. I just, yeah. It just astounds me how fandom dismisses or refuses to acknowledge that kind of double standard bias they hold sometimes. I see it all the time.

There are plenty of of levelheaded fans out there. We're just not as vocal, which I think we should be. You know, to balance out the crazy in fandom. :)
