+ Paul Walker. I have watched some really bad movies for you (not including the F&F series which I love unashamedly and unironically) and I always ended up feeling like you were playing yourself, and it turned out I really liked that guy. Man, I'm going to miss your face.
+ As my love affair with Dracula continued, in a lull I decided to watch The Tudors. NOW I HAVE WATCHED IT ALL AND I MISS IT SO MUCH. Henry was SUCH A FUCKING TOOL OMG but I could have watched him forever. And hello Henry Cavill, I didn't know you were in that, all fuzzy chested and having lots of vigorous rumpy pumpy. I also randomly started reading 1000 Years of Annoying the French by Stephen Clarke at the same time and now I am immersed in the past, boggling at the antics of all these violent fools in power who were happy to shag all and sundry when antibiotics weren't even a blip on the horizon. Now Dracula has returned and I keep seeing parallels with Henry. It's like Henry was lifted from his world, given vampirism and denied the entrenched servitude to which he was fully accustomed, and he's struggling like hell to live in a world like that, but by god he's determined to come out on top. AND I LOVE IT.
+ Every time I try to type god these days it comes out as dog. Every time. Ugh.
+ Almost Human. I think this could be a show I could really get into, so long as it doesn't get too procedural crime drama on me. It is dumb and cliched but I like it. Excellent bickering. There needs to be people writing loads of fic, too. There is chemistry like whoa, but it keeps coming back to the squicky idea of falling for a machine, and just because he's programmed to have/display/replicate/whatever feelings, it doesn't mean he's really feeling
them, it doesn't mean he's human, which, I realise, is the whole point, but it says more about a human who could fall for a machine than a machine who could fall for a human, but I've been having a lot of fun rolling the idea around in my head because did I mention the chemistry? And Mr Urban, it is a pleasure and a delight to know I'm going to have you weekly on my TV. Please continue in that vein.
+ Homeland. Oh my dear god in heaven, I think I held my breath for the entirety of the last episode. I really thought that show was going to be milking it by having this latest season. How wrong I was. Some of the best, smartest TV I've seen.Crossposted: http://nomelon.dreamwidth.org/225968.html
