I appreciate the under-appreciated.  
++ Got my tickets for the Desolation of Smaug midnight showing! To say that I'm excited would be a vast understatement at this point.

++ Related, this recent interview with Richard Armitage is a great read because he addresses the differences between the Hobbit book and the films and why it's okay that they're deviating a bit to expand the story, in which case I completely agree with all that he mentions about that. He also comments on the negativity from fandom surrounding the new character, Tauriel. Luckily most of the fandom from what I've seen in my areas has been incredibly positive and supportive, for which I am grateful. Still, it's sad that even before we've seen anything people have been quite hateful towards her character. I get having concerns regarding the subplot, but the hate is just uncalled for. Hopefully they'll change their tune once the movie comes out and realize just how wrong they'd been, but if not, well, their loss.

++ I'm kind of narrowing down my shows to those I don't watch anymore to those that I'm waiting until their seasons are done so I can marathon them straight through. Despite its anniversary, I've given up on Doctor Who. Once Upon A Time is another show I'm no longer watching, but it's amusing hearing about what crazy shenanigans are happening each week. Like, how everyone is basically related to everyone at this point. It's super ridiculous. Revenge, Haven, Elementary, Sleepy Hollow and Nikita are shows I'm still watching but am wayyyy behind on, and will probably catch up as soon as their current seasons are done.

++ If anyone still wants a Christmas card from me, please go to this post.

What made you give up on Doctor Who? Just a general lack of interest? I honestly haven't been feeling it since the Ponds left. For some reason, Clara still annoys me. I've never really disliked a companion before, so this is new, lol. But I'm hoping that having Twelve will give them a new dynamic and make me like things more.

Yeah, it's just a lack of interest and how it's no longer enjoyable for me. There's also the issue with Moffat, which has been covered by everyone else.

I preferred Clara when she was a Dalek, honestly. Like they could have given her an interesting storyline with that. Unfortunately, they gave her the "she was born to save the Doctor" cliched kind of thing, which I feel cheapens her as a character and for every other companion as well, not to mention the Doctor and his story too. Idk. Overall I think the storytelling is no longer as good as it used to be. It's too many ~twists and not even development of the characters.
no good eitheralanna_zero on November 26th, 2013 09:19 pm (UTC)
I had given up on OUAT a few months ago too, but somehow I ended up watching it again. I don't know why, but it has suddenly become something I actually look forward to again, even if some of the acting is still atrocious and the storylines are getting more and more ridiculous xD

It's gotten to that point where they've gone down the Doctor Who route for me; more about the twists concerning who is related to who instead of moving forward with an actual story (and taking forever to get to Point A to Point B.) I just feel like they should be focusing more on other characters instead of the same ones, or to stop bringing in new ones and focus on the ones they already introduced seasons ago. Also, stop with rehashing the old feuds (i.e. Regina vs Snow White).

I think the only thing I'm paying attention to now is the possibility of Mulan/Aurora, though I want them to actually follow through with that instead of chickening out or making it painfully one-sided.
I need more fandoms like CKR needs more sexylove_jackianto on November 28th, 2013 03:06 am (UTC)
