1. [livejournal.com profile] lb_klove has made a wonderful Faith MV here. Check it out!

2. I've watched the first episode of The Paradise and hmmmm. As a British period drama, it's good, as an adaptation of Zola's novel, I feel all the sharp edges and dark corners have been smoothed and lightened out. MMV. It suffered, though, from my watching it in such proximity to the sublime Parade's End.

3. I never did get around to doing a proper post on the last week's eps of Nice Guy, did I? Oops.



I loved the episodes - paradoxically, even with amnesia and hematomas, they felt like the lightest, happiest, most hopeful episodes so far - mainly because the memory loss (EG) and the impermanence (Maru) has, oddly, freed them to be together with no baggage. And oh, how wonderful it is to see that enormous capacity Maru has for caring turn towards a worthy recipient. The episodes reenforce over and over again how little he even thinks of Jae Hee other than as a threat to EG - he doesn't even hate her any more, he just doesn't care. I love that.

4. I have a whole batch of caps for ep 17 of Five Fingers (yes, I am a few eps behind). I continue to enjoy the drama - I see complaints about it but I think it's excellent, mainly because the excellent cast elevates the material.

I am done with Parade's End, and while it was wonderful from beginning to end, I am now bereft - nothing else appeals much because nothing else compares.

Why is this show so good? I have only one episode left, and what am I going to do then?

I realize most of my flist doesn't care, but I can't stop.

My favorite episode yet, it's going to ruin me for other shows )

Anyway, hope someone read this mess of a post, but even if not, I am too obsessed to mind.

Because we have conversations like this:

Me (out of the blue): Who would win in a fight, the main character from Parade's End or Green Arrow from Arrow?
Mr. Mousie (without missing a beat): The main character from Parade's End. He has a gun. He's also probably killed people. It's a revolver, not an automatic but it still has better range than a bow.

Ahahahahahahahahahahahaaaaa I love him. Only he would treat a bizarre question pitting a CW superhero against a protagonist of a literary adaptation as utterly normal. And have the literary adaptation person win ;)

As I realize that 90% of my flist is going 'what?'

I realize that part of the reason I am so smitten with Parade's End is that it's giving me what I wanted from that adaptation of Galsworthy's Forsyte Saga a few years ago - adopting a brilliant novel with a perfect cast and making me feel. Forsyte Saga is one of my favorite works of literature and I got so excited when I heard there was going to be an adaptation, only to loathe the adaptation when it came out - it was appallingly miscast and all the vivid poetry and intense emotion I felt when reading the books was utterly absent.

But the adaptation of PE is fiercely intelligent and a hothouse of emotion. More than that, it's a wonderful adaptation - I am reading PE right now, and how Stoppard managed to convey the spirit of the books is amazing.

Anyway, since I am a MV junkie, have another gorgeous shippy MV:



Speaking of BBC adaptations, I just found out that they adapted one of my favorite novels, Zola's "Ladies' Paradise" into a BBC period drama (transplanted to the North of England) called Paradise. OMFG, I need this in my life. Denise/Mouret 4evah etc (or as they renamed them here, Denise/Moray). Have a trailer:



There is also a MV.

I am reading Christopher/Valentine fanfic. I am officially around the bend.

But the thing is, I haven't really shipped a Western TV couple in years! Not since Ten/Rose and that was over in 2008. So that's quite deliciously novel to me.

Oh, and speaking of shipping. While I haven't yet watched Faith 19-20 properly, I did peek at the end of 20, and nobody is going to convince me that the scene didn't get x-rated the moment after the episode ended. I mean, seriously!

I am so watching more tonight!

De-stressing after Baby Mousie fell asleep by watching ep 2 of Parade's End and this scene.




OMFG this scene.

It's the one where he tells Valentine he enlisted and why.

The caps of the most amazing scene ever )

You know, the acting in amazing and all that, but the writing? The writing is insane. I guess that's what you get when you have Tom Stoppard adapting FMF.

This show owns my soul.

Have a clip of this scene:



Seriously, this show is perfect.

ETA: For those who are wondering how I have time to watch this but not Faith - I watch this together with Mr. Mousie. So if I have any free time at all, our mutual activities come first and my own drama time after.

1. In my greedy little hands is episode 19 of Faith.



I am about to pick up Baby Mousie so no Faith for me until later today (or, possibly, tomorrow morning *gasp*) but I am giddy like a five-year-old with a new bike. Also, new hair! Yes! I am all for back to the curl! Plus, it symbolizes him giving up duty for her blah blah blah YESSSS.

2. Speaking of hair, this is Yoochun's haircut for I Miss You. With bonus police uniform. I like.



3. And last but not least, because I am an equal opportunity shipper/angst-lover, here are Christian and Valentine from Parade's End yearning for each other.




Look on the bright side, Edwardian thwarted lovers - if you were in a kdrama, you'd probably also be siblings!

A few more caps from Parade's End )

I don't know, but Valentine is pretty much my newest girlcrush.



Horrible anti-suffrage pervert: Threatens Valentine, also calls her Christopher's whore.
Valentine: How dare you insult a man you are unworthy to be a bootboy for?
Horrible anti-suffrage pervert and me in unison: Insult him?

I approve of monomania but I seriously laughed out loud. Priorities, girl!

Also, Sylvia is a horrible person but I feel sorry for her - she married a man least compatible with her need for constant drama and outpouring of emotion and desire for some sort of alpha he-man.
