Oh.

OH.

I simply must find and watch Devil's Whore, the currently airing British television series set in the Revolutionary England. I am sure it will be fairly ahistorical but I'll do my best to forget that because: 17th century outfits! Cavaliers! Roundheads! And above all, John Simm who I will watch in anything.

Here is a vid for it:

While waiting for the latest Battlestar Galactica ep to...ahem, and with Mr. Mousie wanting to watch something together (thus CfY being out), we ended up watching the first episode of the British series State of Play, starring John Simm and David Morrisey.

Simm is a journalist friend of a rising young MP (Morrisey) who gets involved in investigating the murder of a researcher with whom the MP was having an affair.

So far, it's brilliant.

The thought of being remade into a Hollywood movie pisses me off. Fine, I suppose I can see Russell Crowe as Simm's character but WTF! They cast Ben 'I can't act and look like a man who hits on drunk girls in bars' Affleck as Morrisey's character. WTF! One of the huge points of the story is that we are sympathetic to and like Morrisey's character but Affleck just comes across as a grab-bag of sleaze. Not to mention the sheer difference that Morrisey is a good actor and Affleck is...well...not. Norton, whom they initially cast, would have been awesome, but this? Ugh.

I shall erase the foul taste by watching more of the original...

OMG. I just watched last episode of Life on Mars.



Mind.

Blown.

Brain.

Gone.

For ever.

This just might be the best episode of anything, in history.

Only coherent enough for caps. Meta to come.

OMG.

I am up through ep 5 of Life on Mars, season 2.



So amazing. So trippy. I keep wondering what Sam's true situation is. Is he really in a coma? He keeps hearing things, but it could just be his mind trying to come up with some explanation for random phenomena which are happening to him (i.e. he is in a coma, true, but he is not hearing things, but imagining them).

Of course, his being in a coma makes so much sense: he can wrap the cases and solve things (unlike in waking life, when we see, there were failures which haunted him horribly, as I am sure there are for any detective). He is a bit of a loner, but he does have a close knit team, push-pull or not. And there is Annie. And his cases really reflect what's going on in his brain. He dreamt about his aunt, and next thing the case involves people who work the same job. He hears he is ODing, in coma world, and the hospital screwed up, and the case is about police screwing up. etc etc etc.

I have just watched ep 4 of season 2 of Life on Mars.

OMG OMG.

Seriously, this is going into my top 10 series ever. I have tons of meta, I have tons of shippy squee (Annie/Sam, OMG, the adorableness), and I have so much admiration for how this is both one of the most mind-bending things I've ever seen, and yet is grounded and funny and sad. But above all, I have SO MUCH love for Sam Tyler, who is both one of the most functional and awesome and at the same time one of the most messed up (especially if this is supposed to be in his head) characters ever.



Also, swingers (topic of ep 4's murder) suck. I was almost physically uncomfortable. But it was worth it to see Sam and Annie all fake-coupley and Sam be all protective and jealous. Heeee. And oh God, Gene Hunt is so id but I love him. I do have meta on alienation and sexism (Sam is popular with women because he is the only one who sees them as people, the rest of the cops see them as sex-objects, nothing else) and mirror narrative. But it's late so I'll post a few caps instead.

A few largely shippy caps. Mainly because it's such a treat to see Sam smile because he is so intense and messed up so much.

1. After this clip, The Lakes just moved way up my viewing list. Yeah, I know it's a gritty and intelligent drama but I am afraid I am shallow and all my brain ic capable of processing is 'Guuuuhhh...John Simm...guhhh...making out.' I have yet to figure out how someone who is, objectively, not good-looking, manages to be so hot.

2. I found this Casanova MV with David Tennant. It looks scrumptious. Must be my weekend viewing then. I realized, however, that I am totally allergic to seeing DT upset: I begin to feel upset myself.



3. You know my mad love for Our Mutual Friend, the novel and the 1998 adaptation? And John/Bella and Eugene/Lizzie, the two mainc couples? Well, imagine my delight when I found MVs about them. Seriously, if you watch these, I dare you not to want to watch OMF.

MVs here )

4. Does anyone else love the 1990s BBC adaptation of Tess of the D'Urbervilles with Justine Waddell and Oliver Milburn as much as I do? Clearly some people do, because look what I found on youtube. So much angsty OTPishness.

Tess vids )

5. I adore Henry Tilney from Northanger Abbey. Am about to watch the 2007 version. Found this MV and am pleased to announce he seems acceptable :)

MV here )

6. And because I cannot end this post, largely about lit adaptations, without mention of my favorite adaptation hero, Mr. Thornton from North and South, here is a vid.

I am continuing with the brilliance that is Life on Mars and have finished ep 7 of Series 1. I have to say, LoM really is one of the most original, mind-bending, awesome shows in ever. And hey, it can make me laugh so hard that I have to pause the ep, and sniffle like a ten year old.



Screencaps and meta from eps 6 and 7 )

Picspam: Eps 6 and 7 here )



In other news, I got my Blackpool DVDs today. EEEEE! That and Our friends in the North with Christopher Eccleston. I'll be a happy obsessive.

ETA: Just finished ep 8 of Life on Mars and OMG. It broke my heart and was so perfect and OMG.

Screencaps behind cut )

ETA2: I just found out that people write Gene/Sam. I think something in my soul just died.
