"Hey, I wasn't finished! Don't Kanye me!"  
Lost Girl 3.03 "ConFaegion"

This was such a fun episode, very reminiscent to the body switching episode last season.

I liked that this is where we see a lighter side of Tamsin. Granted she was affected by a parasite that makes anyone turn into immature teenagers, but seeing as how this was her second episode it was a great was of showing her character in a different way than how we were first introduced. Plus, there are mysterious things about her character that were mentioned but not revealed, thus making us, the audience, more curious about her. I really want to know what her secret was, Bo mentioned that it was sad, so maybe we'll be learning more about that soon since it appeared to be relevant. They seemed to focus a lot on Bo and Tamsin being buddies during that state. It makes me think that they might be setting up for a possible friendship between them? Perhaps? Or maybe a little bit of their playful girlish flirting might come out to play later?

Another thing I loved is seeing the reconciliation between Lauren and Kenzi, that their feud is now behind them. I know it's been much debate on why Kenzi never really warmed up to Lauren and why she was always so anti-Lauren and pro-Dyson most of the time, but at least it was settled in this episode. Both she and Lauren are stubborn with their affection and protectiveness of Bo to really see eye-to-eye until now. Which I'm glad that they did.

I also liked that we got a little more detail on Lauren's background, which I want more of.

Alongside her crotch-punching a dude in the beginning of the episode, Kenzi with the Staff of Justice was simply the coolest part of the episode, imo. I loved the whole thing partly because it provided much hilarious dialogue ("Pick up a weapon, she said!" and "Worst hand-job ever!"), but also seeing her kicking major ass in a bamf ninja way was just awesome. I liked that despite having a superhuman kind of skill there, she didn't want that kind of power. Which is ironic considering that there might be side-effects to her rash (which I hope they get to soon....)


I have a feeling that Vex will return though, by the end of the season if not sooner.

Overall, I quite enjoyed this episode a whole lot. I like it when we get these kinds of silly episodes. You know the cast has fun making them, too. ;)

Revenge 2.12 "Collusion"

I feel really horrible for Aiden.

He just really wants to save his sister, and unfortunately he's trapped between a wall and a hard place with having the Initiative blackmail him like that. Emily tried her best to make sense of everything, to try to calm him down and think rationally with what they're dealing with, but because they are too powerful it might cost them everything, including his trust in her. Which was quite scary at the end with him threatening Emily, after everything they'd been through together. But his reaction is understandable given the amount of pressure and the emotional blackmail considering everything was for his sister, and now he is made to believe she's dead.

She may be dead, she may have already been dead all this time and the Initiative are just using those videos as means of blackmailing into doing something they want done. It's what they do, and it's getting to Aiden because that is his entire mission. Find his sister, no matter what the cost.

I'm hoping Emily can save him before he does something reckless. I don't want there to be a feud between them created by the Initiative.

Emily facing off with Victoria in her sweet way with that tiny smirk was so delicious.

And...that's all I have to say about this episode.

In other fandom news:

++ Trailer for Defiance, a new series on Syfy.
Set in the near future, Defiance introduces an exotically transformed planet Earth, its landscapes permanently altered following the sudden – and tumultuous – arrival of seven unique alien races. In this somewhat unknown and unpredictable landscape, the richly diverse, newly-formed civilization of humans and aliens must learn to co-exist peacefully.
I'm quite excited for this new series, originally because of Jamie Murray and Julie Benz, but seeing the trailer makes it have that Firefly and Farscape feel, which has sparked an interest and has me intrigued. Plus, it's great to see more scifi back on the channel again. I'm just hoping they're smart enough to give this show a proper chance to thrive.

++ The Borgias S3 promo. The new season looks to be quite exciting, and I can't wait. Especially for Cesare/Lucrezia. I honestly don't care if it's legit or if it's a dream sequence, just them showing all of that in the promo, plus having the tagline, "Only a Borgia can love a Borgia", just leaves me thinking they definitely are heading in that direction. And it just makes me so happy. ♥

++ I've been preparing myself for the new season of Game of Thrones. There's been quite a lot of interviews/sneak peeks, including the three-eyed raven teaser and the generic teaser. Now I'm just anxiously waiting like everyone else for an actual trailer with new footage, and then waiting even more for the season to start for reals. Because I wants it and needs it now. *grabby hands*

Dyson even had the line: "I got to be Kenzi. Nailed it." lol

I can't wait for The Borgias and GoT. The Borgias promo looks awesome.

I know, that had me cracking up. It's even more hilarious because he could have meant both for the character and the actor. Like, Dyson did bodyswap with Kenzi, though the actor totally "nailed it" by portraying Kenzi inside of Dyson's body. lol

idk, I just think that line was cute and awesome to place in with the double meaning. Hee. ;)

Defiance looks like it could be amazing. I'll have to remember to look for it. And OMG, so excited for Game of Thrones. ♥

After seeing the promos and reading up on it, Defiance is definitely going to be that new show that I am going to like a whole lot. Just the premise, the look of it, I just can't wait when it premieres.

Hm...I am intrigued by that Defiance trailer but also a bit worried by the...were those giant robots? Hm...you will have to tell me if it's worth watching....

OMG GAME OF THRONES!!!!!! I cannot wait. Every time they post a "sneak peek", I debate whether to watch or not. I want to be spoiler free but I need a FIX! Can't wait for the Season 2 blu-rays so I can watch all the extras, that should tide me over until 03.31.13 :D
Renée: GOT. Daenerys.rogueslayer452 on January 26th, 2013 12:19 am (UTC)
Will do. :)

I've actually been deprived of some good scifi, so I'm hoping it exceeds my expectations.

They've released some new promotional pics today, no spoilers. But I just kept looking at them going THE COSTUMES ARE SO PRETTY. *__* It's funny though, I don't mind spoilers for this show since I already know what happens in the books (despite not having actually read the books yet.) But at the same time, I really want to avoid knowing precisely how certain scenes are going to play out until it actually airs. Idk, I'm weird like that.

No, that totally makes sense, I am avoiding images from 'Catching Fire' for the same reason. I know what happens but I don't know how the writer/directors will interpret it for screen and I want to be surprised.

I haven't read any of SoIaF series so I dunno what is going to happen and every time the books come in at work, I push them away for fear a stray word from the book flat will hit my eye and give me spoilers LOL

Random question... Are Bo and Lauren still a thing? :3 I'm considering starting to watch the show again...

Yes. :)
