dangermousie: (Lobbyist OTP by miss-dian)
I am so sorry - I am beyond behind on replies. I promise to get to them by the weekend.



But now on to the drama that owns my heart and soul - Faith. I rarely ship the way I ship Eun Soo/Choi Young here - they are so functional together, make each other better, make each other live.

This episode shows us every way in which CY and ES make each other happy and how they can be and then...yanks it away.

(Thoughts and caps on ep 21)  )

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 )

Please be warned that there are almost 200 caps beneath the cut. Seeing that I managed to reduce it from over 3000, however, that is quite an achievement.

(Best episodes of anything ever. Oh wait, didn't I say the same thing last week?)  )

dangermousie: (BSG: Helo/Athena by lyssie)
Eps 2 and 3 of s2 of Chuck were pretty much shipper heaven but between kissing and angst and h/c and whatever, the bit that stood out the most and turned me into an incoherent fangirl was this little exchange.

Montgomery (about Sarah): Is she worth dying for?
Chuck: Yes.

!!!!!!!! I pretty much adore it especially because Chuck is not a trained spy or anything and is terrified out of his wits but he still doesn't even hesitate for a milisecond before responding.

Also, loved the whole thing where Sarah froze and couldn't take a shot due to a risk of hitting Chuck when, we saw earlier, she had no pause at all in identical circumstances earlier, when it involved Bryce when she and Bryce were still an item.

This is not from this ep but have a bonus:

(my other outside-the-cut choice was way spoilery)

These eps were the best yet - my OTP made me realize that they are even more awesome than I thought (a feat I believed impossible) and turned me into a gibbering lunatic, there was some great music (none of it involving Strawberry Fields, who still sound like elevator music to me), Ji Hyuk proved yet again how amazing he is, I've aquired a new OTP that I am unhealthily invested in, and I've developed quite a thing for Hyun Soo. So, how much better can it get?

Caps and thoughts on eps 5 and 6 )

Bring on ep 7!

Saving her from thugs! Motorcycles! Sorta-hugs! Awesome conversations! GUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUH!!! I am getting Mars flashbacks.

First off, can I get a rooftop apartment with an awesome rocker boy as a neighbor?



I haven't fallen this fast for a drama since forever. It feels real and heartfelt and reminds me that I don't hate all youth dramas, it's just that most of them are so shabbily done. When one is done right, like this one, nothing can be better and I want to thank SUFBB for reminding me of that. It pretty much restored the whole genre to me. So far (and yes, I realize we are two months into the year) this is the 2012 drama to beat, for me.



And Ji Hyuk! Practical, loyal, kind, lost Ji Hyuk. He reminds me of what it is to have a fictional crush and adore a character so thoroughly. I haven't fallen for a protagonist this hard since City Hunter, almost a year ago. I remember being very unenthused by Sung Joon who was deadly dull playing an appallingly badly-written character in Lie to Me (but then that whole drama was a disaster) but here, he's blowing me away. But all the boys are wonderful - by the end of ep 3, I couldn't believe that earlier I couldn't tell any of them apart except for Ji Hyuk and Do Il. All of them have their distinct personalities, their pasts, and their friendship is just - I don't know, it doesn't feel like the unreal drama friendship often shown. Their horseplay, teasing, shared grief and rage and goals - they feel like real people and make me vaguely nostalgic for my own schooldays in Russia (American schools are quite different from this, but Russian schools, not so much).



And I adore Soo Ah, a rare heroine who's neither childishly quirky nor a plaster saint, but a real girl who is that rarity - an unostentatiously good person, who has doubts and weaknesses but never whines. I love that JH and she share something she doesn't with any of her 'friends' - the truth of her situation, and that their relationship is so functional - if there is a fight (when he blew up at her after Byung Hee's death) - there are apologies and no silly misunderstandings or martyrdom. I can't believe I am going to bring this up, but their rooftop interactions remind me a bit of Mars, though neither is as damaged as the protagonists there. And I think he's a much better choice for her than the late Byung Hee, the impractical, the dreamer - she is where she is because her father was not practical enough. JH may be a rocker bad boy, but he has a strong streak of practicality and his role is a caretaker of his wilder friends - just what she needs. And she's caring without being dramatic, low-key and cheerful - just what he needs.

A ton ton ton of good quality caps from eps 3 and 4 in hopes of icons. Ji Hyuk-centric because he rocks. Plus more meta )

And now I have to run, but I cannot wait to watch more! On, and cinematography is fantastic. Why is the whole world not watching this?
