dangermousie: (VM: V/L kiss by frenchscent)


I watched the pilot of Kristin Kreuk's new supernatural romance Beauty and the Beast and I am totally in love! I am sure if I were rational, I could nitpick it to death, but I don't care - the pilot pretty much hit every shippy kink of mine out of the gate. That happens with kdramas all the time, but incredibly rarely with American shows.

Katherine is a homicide detective who, years ago, was saved from the men who killed her mother, by a mysterious 'beast'. Nine years later, she meets him again...

I mean, as the OTP it's giving me the trope of 'guy who is sort of a bodyguard for the woman and would lay down his life for her, but has major unworthiness issues.' Mmmmmmmm nomnomnom. And the heroine even talks about them saving each other!

Some caps that show why I am obsessed )

It's a long wait until Monday (yes, I know, less than 24 hours, but it still feels too long) so have some Faith MVs.

Clearly, I am on a Western TV kick. Luckily, now that I am only following 4 kdramas, I have room.



Next on my list - the 5 ep British series Parade's End. I didn't even know it existed (unlike every other fangirl in existence, while I enjoyed Benedict Cummerbatch in Sherlock, I don't follow his stuff in any fashion) and stumbled across it while looking for something else.



And then I kinda went insane. Because! This is an adaptation of a series of novels by Ford Madox Ford, whom I've read and liked (though not this series but one about Katherine Parr) and who, I believe, was a friend of Sigfried Sassoon (who I used to be a bit obsessed about). And it's set around WWI, a time period I find utterly fascinating - I will pretty much watch/read almost anything set in that time period (probably the hangover from the fact that Erik Maria Remarque's Three Comrades is my favorite novel ever - it's not set during WWI but it does follow a group of WWI veterans). And there is a love story which sounds all sorts of messed up because he's a married Tory and she is a suffragette. And and and and it was adopted by Tom Stoppard.

Basically, I need this in my life ASAP!

Also, on a random note - I don't find BC good-looking (he has a rather odd face, actually, IMO) but he looks quintessentially upper-class British to me, so it looks like perfect casting.

Have a shippy MV:



And this vid is from near the end, I believe. Caution, they show things on British TV we only get on HBO etc here in the USA :P )
