HAPPY 2015!  
++ I hope everyone's New Years was nice and well. I mostly slept through it, only woke up to the sounds of fireworks. I also watched some of the Twilight Zone marathon that happens every New Years.

++ Saw BOTFA again for the third time in IMAX 3D, I didn't cry as much as the previous viewings, though it still breaks my heart.

++ I spent all of yesterday watching Carmilla, a webseries that is a modernized retelling of the 1871 novella by Sheridan Le Fanu. It is absolutely charming and delightful, the story is quite intriguing once things start get going, and overall I quite liked it. It's kind of a mashup between Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Lost Girl with a little dash of Welcome to Night Vale, in the sense of strange, paranormal things happening and sometimes just from the nonchalant retelling of the off-screen events can seem rather quirky. But it also doesn't negate from the serious and emotional parts, either. Laura, our main protagonist, is just adorable with her being tiny and brave and absolutely determined to do whatever is necessary to figure things out despite the odds, and Carmilla, a.k.a. the "useless lesbian vampire" as the fandom affectionately refers to her, is just a magnificent to watch as her story unfolds, it's both tragic and rewarding towards the end. And all the secondary to even minor characters featured are great, as well. Overall I can definitely see why it came so highly praised, I enjoyed it thoroughly and I definitely recommend it to anyone who may be interested, as well. Plus, it's getting a second season!

That show sounds really cool! I'll have to check it out sometime :D

The last time I watched The Twilight Zone was when I was babysitting and it was the episode where the kid turns her babysitter into a doll and have been too freaked out ever since. :O

Oh yeah that episode. I love all the freaky, creepy episodes, but the sad ones can be too upsetting sometimes. Like the one with the man who ended up being the only survivor during the end of the world and thought he finally had time to read all the books he wanted, only to have his glasses be shattered. :(

Yay, Carmilla! :D I'm so glad there's gonna be a second season. I'm gonna re-watch it by the end of the month, it's gonna be fun watching it all again, knowing the main stuff, and just watching and seeing things I may have missed the first time.
If you feel like, you should totally check out some of the interviews on youtube. There are a couple of Pillowtalks, and then there are the kaiseqs that Kaitlyn hosts (I'm watching the ones with Elise Bauman now, and they're just hilarious xD) I really like that it's a great series, and that the actors involved all seem like a fun bunch. :D)

I actually have just watched some of their interviews, and I think they're just an adorable bunch. ♥

It really is! There's at least 30-something episodes, but they're relatively short (the longest one being around 7 minutes), and you become rather engaged with the story. :D

It started out blahh but I am obsessed with it. The ethnic diversity needs a little work but Lola being Jewish (yes Judiasm is also an ethnicity) is a start X3. I am so excited for March when Next season comes on!

I liked how it built up in momentum and things picked up, and it just got better and better. I spent most of the evening watching the entire thing, plus the Christmas special. It makes me wonder how S2 is going to turn out.

Isn't Carmilla adorable. And one of the best new things/shows of last year? (Does it count as a show being a webseries?
Renée: Kaylee. Giddy.rogueslayer452 on January 5th, 2015 12:40 am (UTC)
It really is adorable. :)

Oh, it totally counts as a show. Just because it's not on television doesn't mean it shouldn't count as a show, imo.
