1. Argh!!!! My big order from Amazon, full of Brit chick lit I was craving, was sent to the wrong address (my fault) and now I have to reorder and argghghghghghghghhgghhgh I want it now! I was never good at patience. I reordered from Alibris and now it will get here by Dec 14 but I want those books now! Especially Tash/Hugo ones. Boooo.

2. I went to see Immortals today and loved it. I can see why it had lousy reviews - it's a very idiosyncratic movie and the story is barebones, but I thought it was amazing - visually like nothing I've ever seen - like feverish paintings come to life - like those vivid nightmarish dreams you have that you half-remember when you wake up. Plus, huge bonus to anything that mentions Titanomachia. And somehow the vibe did remind me of the myths, or at least of the way they made me feel when I first discovered them when I was eight. Plus, I've never seen Henry Cavill in anything but that man is ridiculously gorgeous and masculine at the same time. Mmmmm.

3. I am behind on my dramas. I am just not in the mood somehow. No idea why. But have an Ouran cap dump.



From the last half and rather Haruhi/Tamaki-centric )

4. In news of American TV shows (where I am also behind), I've pretty much given up pretending I care for anything but Bridget/Andrew in Ringer. But they are so adorable together! Sure, there is the whole 'she is impersonating her sociopath twin sister who is his wife' complication, but whatever :)



5. To console self for book-shipping fiasco mentioned in (1), I went on kindle and got a Jilly Cooper book to fill my trashy British books quota. I only had two criteria: (1) it had to be on kindle and (2) not involve horses as K&T got me all horsed-out. So I got Rivals, which is set in a fictional English county and revolves around a fight for a television station license (not sure how it works in the UK but I don't particularly mind). The station is run by a horrible backstabbing guy named Tony something, and he finally pisses off enough people that they take him on and try to take the license away from him. It's full of amoral but hilarious people who gladly sleep around and backstab and is v.v.v.v. entertaining. I pretty much adore every character (as long as I don't ever have to meet them) but my favorites, in no particular order are:

* Taggy - the only really sane person in this whole thing (at least so far, I am a quarter in). She's 19, the daughter of a famous television interviewer (who is the one spearheading the takeover). She's dyslexic, has plans for a career as a chef, and as a result of growing up with brilliant but volatile father and self-absorbed, domestically-useless mother, she's pretty much the caretaker. I think she should get whatever she wants, which seems to be a chef career.

* Declan - Taggy's Dad. He's pretty awesome but his taste in women - yikes. Maud, his wife, is pretty much the most spoiled and useless thing ever, even if hilariously entertaining as a character.

* Rupert Campbell-Black - He's in his late 30s (I think), is a cabinet minister and is an unrepentant playboy. He gets involved in the takeover with Declan. I really shouldn't like him because he's got the morals of a cat and pretty much does anything in skirts, but in addition to being hot, he is ridiculously hilarious and entertaining. I mean, I cannot not love him after exchanges like this (Valerie is the resident social climber):

'Sharon's only allowed to watch [TV] occasionally at weekends,' said Valerie smugly. 'When I was young, my sister and I made our own amusements.'
'So did I,' agreed Rupert, 'until Nanny told me it would make me go blind.'


Ahahahahaahaaa.

Because I am a bad person, I peeked at the end and apparently Rupert and Taggy become a couple? (!!!!!!) I am madly curious as to how that would happen as where I am at, she cannot stand the sight of him and he's chasing everything that moves (though thinks she's pretty). Hmmmm. Ever since I read These Old Shades as a teenager, I've been a sucker for 'super-slutty older man falls madly for younger woman who he doesn't think he can have' trope so...anticipating this.

6. From now through New Year's, posting is probably spotty because of a lot of family events and travel. Sorry :)

I confess I am totally loving Ringer. I skip every scene involving Agent Boring or Juliet (I have no patience with her emo teen ways and entitlement. Also, she looks a decade too old to be Ioan Gruffudd's daughter unless he had her at 12) but the rest is pure delight.



The fact that I ship Bridget/Andrew is no surprise but I enjoy the show in general - it knows it's soapy, silly goodness and embraces it, becoming gloriously entertaining in the process. I love Bridget and really hope she makes it work - whatever 'it' is, i.e. what makes her happy (I hope it's Andrew and his posh accent and his millions, but if she wants Malcolm or be on her own or whatever, I am fine with that).

But I am even more fascinated by Siobhan, who's smart, ruthless and borderline sociopath (faking forgiveness in order to put a hit on your sister - that's beyond cold). I think Siobhan's curse is that she is never happy - if you think about it, marriage with Andrew should have made her 100% fulfilled - he seems a decent sort who would treat her like a queen if she only gave him a chance (look how quickly Bridget has him at her beck and call and all she does is treat him decently) and marriage to him gives her money, prestige, and access to best stuff in New York and elsewhere. Siobhan is not the type to need to love so I don't think her lack of feelings for him is a reason of why she is unhappy. I think the issue is that she just can't be happy - maybe it's a control thing, maybe it's a trauma thing, maybe a sociopath thing. But I can't wait to see more of her. Plus, her Paris eyecandy is super-hot.

Henry is SO BORING. He needs to get off my screen. Gemma was kind of annoying too (wtf with her 'sleep with my husband' scenario?) so at least one annoyance less, I suppose.

Also, Logan Echolls! As an English teacher. Can one LOL and swoon at the same time?

Now, here is a dilemma. I am kinda enjoying the show except for one glaring glaring issue - I loathe loathe loathe and despise the heroine.



The cap above is one of many reasons why (this cap picked for sexytime prettiness - screenshots of angry housewives are less photogenic). I don't care if Emily is out for revenge and wrecks the lives of those who wrecked hers. But she doesn't give a fuck about collateral damage - in wrecking people who are innocent of any wrongdoing, she is no better than those she seeks revenge on. Daniel is the only the most prominent one of these - I don't particularly love the guy, but he seems a decent enough sort whose only crime is being the son of people Emily wants revenge on - wtf? What kind of person seduces and enters into a relationship with someone to get revenge on his parents? How about all these people whose secrets Emily very publically outed via video to bring down that shrink? What do they have to do with her family drama? Why must their lives be ruined? Or the investors in that fund she destroyed? Some little old lady is going to have her income cut in half and struggle to pay the bills now! Or Daniel's sister - her only crime, like Daniel's, is to be born to people Emily hates - so yeah, get the girl to know her mother wishes she was never born.

Anyway, I loathe and despise Emily and want her brought down forever.

This is not a good show experience - to hate the protagonist. I don't have to like them (I love Boardwalk Empire despite not loving any of the characters. I don't hate any of them - they are too fascinating, but then, BE is in another league from Revenge) but if I want to erase that smug face every time I see her, I think it's time to drop it.Maybe, if I loved some other character, but I don't.

I much prefer Ringer - it's not as good but I actually like and root for Bridget (and like Andrew and Juliet as well).

Before I take Baby Mousie out to trick-or-treat.

1. I watched the first two episodes of Man of Honor and liked it. Even though the story is different, I could tell it was made by the Baker King people about two minutes in - the vibe, the narrative structure, the character types. I adored BK so it's a good thing for me, but if you did not, maybe you should stay away. I confess to loving Chun Jung Myung's underdog protagonist better than YSY's underdog protagonist in BK because CJM is a much better actor. Whatever else happens, I want Yeong Gyung to find happiness. Park Min Young is her bright, adorable self - when have I not loved her? They have a lovely chemistry (the scene at the end of ep when they first meet is just amazing). Where it's inferior to BK is the secondary guy. In BK, Ma Jun was probably my favorite character and his dysfunctional relationship with Eugene's character made my top 10 OTPs that year. Here, my main emotion towards the secondary guy/antagonist is a desire for him to jump off a cliff pronto.

2. I tried with Revenge, I really tried. But I think I have room in my heart for only one trashy revenge show and it's Ringer. I will probably get back to the woes of rich people show soon, but I am very underwhelmed.

3. I continue to be obsessed with Once Upon a Time. I enjoyed the peek into Evil Queen's background in this ep, and Emma v. EQ showdown, but show, I need need NEED more Snow White! Luckily, the preview for ep 3 promises me more:



If Prince Charming will be brought out of his coma through the Power of Love (tm), I will officially decide that this is a kdrama in disguise.

Also, probable obsessive ship.



Yes, I have reverted to being six years old and am shipping Snow White/Prince Charming. Rabidly. I have no shame.

Anyway, I just finished the pilot of Once Upon a Time and loved loved loved it to bits (yes, even the omniscient kid didn't annoy me). It's just the right amounts of cheesy and intriguing and twisty and with all these characters I cannot wait to see develop. I like Emma, the protagonist, a lot, but I confess being more interested (so far) in the fairy-tale transplants - the Evil Queen, Snow White, Prince Charming, Rumpelstiltskin (OMG Robert Carlyle OMG!), the Sheriff (anyone taking bets on the Sheriff being the Big Bad Wolf?).

It's a ridiculous amount of fun. And so very pretty. The time-bending stuff is going to give me splitting headaches as it will get more complicated but I know I am going to love it.

A bunch of caps, a lot (but not all) Snow White/Prince Charming-centric )

So yeah, v.v.v. in love. Even if it is sort of a rip-off of Fables.

Have an ep 2 preview:



I hope the ratings are good! I need this to stick around. I enjoy Ringer, but I am rabid about this one. (Haven't yet gotten to Revenge, Pan Am or Homeland, my other potentials of the season).

Anyway, I just finished the pilot of Once Upon a Time and loved loved loved it to bits (yes, even the omniscient kid didn't annoy me). It's just the right amounts of cheesy and intriguing and twisty and with all these characters I cannot wait to see develop. I like Emma, the protagonist, a lot, but I confess being more interested (so far) in the fairy-tale transplants - the Evil Queen, Snow White, Prince Charming, Rumpelstiltskin (OMG Robert Carlyle OMG!), the Sheriff (anyone taking bets on the Sheriff being the Big Bad Wolf?).

It's a ridiculous amount of fun. And so very pretty. The time-bending stuff is going to give me splitting headaches as it will get more complicated but I know I am going to love it.

A bunch of caps, a lot (but not all) Snow White/Prince Charming-centric )

So yeah, v.v.v. in love. Even if it is sort of a rip-off of Fables.

Have an ep 2 preview:



I hope the ratings are good! I need this to stick around. I enjoy Ringer, but I am rabid about this one. (Haven't yet gotten to Revenge, Pan Am or Homeland, my other potentials of the season).

Just finished ep 2...






This was cool too )

I am with [livejournal.com profile] meganbmoore though - I don't want them to progress to sex until Andrew finds out she is not actually his wife but his wife's twin sister.

Speaking of Siobhan, she's currently my most intriguing character - she is clearly ruthless and sociopathic right now - she hired someone to get rid of her sister, pretty much. But flashbacks show her not like that, and Andrew mentions that 'Siobhan' (though he doesn't know it's currently Bridget) hasn't been this nice for a long time, which means she was nice once. So what led her to become a ruthless scheming wannabe killer? Hmmmm.

But yeah, I like Bridget. I love that she had a party for 300 people with a corpse stashed in a trunk right in the room.

I honestly have no idea if I'd like this show if it didn't star Buffy and Captain Hornblower but it does and I love it to bits.
