Wake me up when it's Christmas, 'kay?  
I received your Christmas card lynnylou, thank you. I also got yours too, xlamentcasx! Your homemade card and message was adorable, made me smile and laugh. ♥

I have yet to send out my cards, which I feel horrible about but things have been quite hectic for me with organizing and getting things prepared and dealing with the crazy holiday madness that I haven't had the time to properly sit down and write in the cards. I'm hoping to do so today and get them sent by tomorrow. I have no idea when they'll be arriving to you guys, might be on or past Christmas.

Anyway, here is a meme for distraction:
Pick a fandom or a topic and I'll share some unpopular opinions.
My fandoms (new and old): Doctor Who, Supernatural, Battlestar Galactica, Caprica, Warehouse 13, Harry Potter, Pretty Little Liars, Hawaii Five-0, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, Dollhouse, Dark Angel, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Veronica Mars, The Hunger Games (only book one), Sucker Punch, Wizards Of Waverly Place, Legend of the Seeker....yeah, I pretty much have a shitload of fandoms, interestingly enough. And the list just keeps on growing so, any fandom that you know I have participated in, or any kind of fandom-related subject at all (ex. fanfic, conventions, etc), feel free to ask and I'll definitely give you my unpopular opinions about it. ;)

Compared to season one, season two wasn't the greatest as it could have been. I felt they introduced a whole lot of new things but didn't really elaborate or get deeper into the mythology as they should have. It just felt too cluttered without any proper resolution in the end. S1 had more structure to the seasonal arc and with the characters and less of the complicated web of things.

I get annoyed when people start watching season two first only for Jensen Ackles as Alec and end up hating on Max/Jessica Alba for ridiculous reasons.

I consider Max and Alec more sibling-esque than shipping material.

I really liked the dynamic of Max/Logan, but my ultimate OTP was Max/Zack. I just felt there was something there that they hinted at, and even commented on within the show very briefly, but I wished it could have been touched on more.

And maybe Sucker Punch if that's okay? I like reading your feelings on this movie, they're always similar to mine :)
Renée: Katniss Everdeen.rogueslayer452 on December 17th, 2011 01:27 am (UTC)
The Hunger Games

I'm not really fond of Peeta. I know the majority of fans of the books really love him, but there's something about him that rubs me the wrong way. Perhaps it's because I need to read the rest of the books to understand, but as of right now I don't see anything worthwhile about his character and am indifferent towards him.

I prefer Katniss by herself than getting involved in any kind of romance.

Considering the movie, I absolutely love the casting for Katniss. I think Jennifer Lawrence is going to be amazing.

After seeing the trailer they are pretty much doing everything I envisioned with the beginning bits of the book, but the one thing I am really hoping to be seen in the movie proper is the scenes between Katniss and Rue, particularly their last scene together. After this fanmade scene the actors seemed to do is so perfectly I want it to be near exactly the same as that.

I don't like the idea of Paul and Echo. Originally I thought about it, but as the seasons went on I kept thinking it the more I realized how much I disliked them together. I felt that Paul and Caroline would have been better matched had they met, not Echo growing as her own person. During "Epitaph Two", that is kind of iffy because obviously Echo had grown and many years went by that perhaps there was more to their relationship that we didn't see, and she obviously felt something for him. So, yeah.

I felt the show should have focused more on Echo and Alpha's relationship more instead of just a few appearances here and there.

I think Dollhouse will be the most under-appreciated Whedon shows simply because of the content. I feel like it doesn't get enough credit for the amazing things it achieved and many just felt uncomfortable and refused to watch because of what they only saw on the surface and instead of what the message was about. I'm not saying the show was perfect, particularly in S1 when FOX took control (once again) over Joss and his creativity, but it just goes to show how amazing things can be mistreated and overlooked until after it's gone.

Doctor Who and also Supernatural.
Renée: DW. Cracks in time.rogueslayer452 on December 17th, 2011 10:11 am (UTC)
Doctor Who

I personally really love Moffat's era of the show, it's been my favorite era so far with watching the show.

In saying that, while I love Moffat's era I do wish he could have elaborated on some of the emotional consequences of things that happened. It's one of the biggest arguments in the fandom, as I'm finding out, and I do agree that there should have been further exploration (i.e. Amy and her pregnancy, Rory remembering being a plastic Roman and waited for 2,000 years, etc.) It's just those things that add more depth to the characters and how they've coped with those things, y'know?

I have loved all the incarnations of the Doctor, however when it comes to favorites Eleven is my Doctor. Matt Smith just has that certain charisma with his acting, playing both youthful and an old soul, that you truly believe he is the Doctor of all the Doctors throughout the fifty years the show has been on the air. Not really an unpopular opinion, just an opinion. :)

I love all the companions. They are all important and special and brought something unforgettable to the story.

I think Amy Pond deserves the title of "The Girl Who Remembered" rather than merely "The Girl Who Waited" It's more fitting to who her character is on the show.

Neil Gaiman needs to write another episode in series seven. ;)

Nine is so under-appreciated. I loved Nine, I thought Christopher Eccleston was a wonderful Doctor and it's sad seeing so many people overlook his character. :( He was the first Doctor I was introduced to. He deserves more love, dammit.

BSG or Firefly
Renée: Battlestar Galactica.rogueslayer452 on December 17th, 2011 07:18 am (UTC)
Battlestar Galactica

The series finale was glorious and beautiful and I wouldn't change anything that they did. ♥

I don't hate Tory and I think it's ridiculous the kind of hate she received.

I disliked the whole Lee/Dee relationship, a whole lot. I felt Dee was deserved better than that. I wished they didn't butcher her and Billy's relationship just to have that happen, tbh.

I didn't really like Lee/Kara as much as others did. Did they have chemistry? Of course, and I loved that the show played off that because they had a lovely dynamic on the screen. But had they ended up together in the end I would have been pissed, because that kind of goes against who these characters are, imo. I keep referring to how Katee Sackhoff felt in regards to their end because I completely agree with her views on it.

I felt the concept of "Black Market" to be interesting and worth telling, even if the execution via Lee's story was horrific and unnecessary.

The ending wasn't a huge deus ex machina as some think it is, and in fact it stays true with how the show started in the first place with its mythology (there were areas where they could have concluded or explained things better, but other than that)

I have many feelings regarding Boomer. Poor thing just didn't know where she belonged, her identity was skewed once she realized her true nature and she felt like an outcast on both sides. I love Athena and her fighting to be accepted amongst the humans, but I always felt Boomer was always left out and I wished we had more of her struggling with her sense of identity instead of how she dealt with in in S4.5 (which I did end up disliking her for a bit for what she did tbh) But yeah. Her end made me sad regardless.

Even though I love Athena, I have mixed feelings about her killing Natalie and how she started hating her own race.

I loved Razor and The Plan.

Finding an unpopular opinion about this show is rather hard, because I don't think I have any.....

I don't think this is unpopular but I do wish more Asians were represented on the show, seeing as how it's a mixture of cultures, North America and China specifically, so you'd think there would have been more Asians featured and not just in the background. Now one could argue that had the show gone on there would have been more representation or characters introduced of Asian-descent. I mean I love the show but yeah, that was something I was kind of disappointed in.

Glad you got your card! How about BTVS and Harry Potter
Renée: BTVS. Buffy Summers.rogueslayer452 on December 17th, 2011 10:42 am (UTC)

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Dawn Summers doesn't deserve the hate she has gotten, and continues to get, from fandom. I really love Dawn, ever since she first was introduced and to how her character has grown over the seasons. I felt her character was realistic as the younger sister and I loved her relationship with all the other characters. I also found myself relating to her, because I myself am the youngest sibling, so I understood her more on that front. So yeah, Dawn Summers Appreciation Life. ♥

I liked Spike much better in the earlier seasons than how the show decided to go about his popularity in the later seasons.

I kinda liked Spike's crush on Buffy in S5 even if it borderlined on creepy-obsessiveness, but once it became canon it was unbearable to me. I cannot stand them together.

Spike/Drusilla >>>>>>> Spike/Buffy, anyday.

I will never get over the attempted rape scene, because it is really disturbing and triggering on so many levels. What makes me nauseous is seeing fans actually defend Spike on this, and why they seem to be so apologetic of his character during S7 (same with the writing as well.) Just ugh, no.

I really enjoyed S7 and the arc with the Potential Slayers and the First. I felt it seemed rather right to end the show on that note, kind of coming full circle with Buffy and the entire Slayer line.

Had she not been the rebound for Willow, Kennedy would have been a fantastic character on her own.

I will never understand why Willow got a free pass after going Dark Side but once Faith returned, having changed and working hard on that road to redemption and proving that she had really turned around, she was still treated like shit by others. Even though yeah the argument could be that Willow is a good friend of theirs and they knew her better than they truly knew Faith, but couldn't they have at least given her the benefit of the doubt? I mean seriously. Hypocrisy much?

Season four and season six remain my least favorite seasons of the entire show.

Legend of the Seeker!
Renée: LotS. Cara.rogueslayer452 on December 18th, 2011 03:46 am (UTC)
Legend of the Seeker

I ship Kahlan/Richard, Kahlan/Cara and Kahlan/Cara/Richard and I make no apologies. :)

I felt sorry for Cara in the series finale because even though they saved the day, she looked very left out when Kahlan and Richard were kissing and celebrating happily. I mean, that was the very last shot of her in the entire series, and she just looks forlorn. I don't know whether this is an unpopular opinion, it's just how I feel whenever I watch the finale.

I like Kahlan's look a bit better in S2 than in S1. Mostly due to the darker outfit and the eye makeup. She looked matured than in S1.
