Angel - Season Three

I'm laughing at how much things can change in one little season.

I've just finished season 3 of Angel. I'm still trying to decide where this season goes in my list of favorite to least favorite seasons. That's bad when I've only seen three seasons so far.

Again, I loved everything involving Darla. She's really a great character. I kind of wish she were around a bit more.

Baby Conner made me squee and Oooo and Awwww SO Much! That Kiddo was ADORABLE! I just wanted to cuddle him every time I saw him. Grown up Stephen/Conner? Well, it's only the end of season 3 so I'm going to give him some time to grow on me . . . Let's hope he does. He does have SOME attitude on him, that's for sure!

Cordelia is still annoying me. Not sure why, I just don't care for her character. Never really did actually. But, now, this STUPID Angel/Cordelia stuff . . . I just don't even have words for how much I can't stand that! I don't really care for Groo either but if he keeps Cordelia away from Angel, I'm his biggest fan. Too bad he left.

Fred is sorta freakin' Adorable! I LOVE her so much! And, thanks to Fred, I'm really enjoying Gunn too! I didn't like him when he first showed up but I'm totally over that. They're so cute! I ship this a lot!

Still HATE Wesley . . . still waiting for that to change. When he first showed up on the show I kind of liked him. I liked him better than Cordelia and better than Gunn but that has totally changed. Right now, out of the main cast, Wesley is definitely my least favorite. (This in no way mirrors my opinion of Alexis Denisof because I really do enjoy him and he's pretty too.) Also, the Wesley/Lilah thing? I can deal with this. Hate them both, they're perfect for each other!

Then there's Lorne . . . I love Lorne. I didn't love Lorne when he first showed up and to be honest I still think the singing thing is a bit silly but I can totally look past it because I love Lorne. He's sweet and funny and I like the relationship he has with Angel. To recap: Lorne Rocks!

Did I miss anyone? Angel? Well, we all know my love for Angel will never change. Moving on . . .

Lilah is freakin' annoying, as always.

Oh! Holtz! I have a definite love/hate relationship with Holtz. Maybe I hate Holtz but kind of fell in love with Keith Szarabajka. I looked him up on the imdb and was surprised at how often I'd seen him but never noticed him. He really stood out to me as Holtz. A very gray area kind of character. Do you love him? Do you hate him? In the end I guess I hate him. (But that didn't stop him from being a great character.)

I'm excited for season four. Angelus was my favorite Big Bad in Buffy and I love it every time he makes an appearance. There are definitely not enough episodes with this creepy guy. He is legitimately scary.

Angel - Season Two

I have finished season two of Angel.

I really enjoyed the Darla arc in this season. I Really enjoyed all the Angel/Darla moments. I don't care how many times he said he didn't or couldn't love Darla. I still think he did. Why would he do all the things he did for her if he didn't love her?

Also, I LOVE it when we get to see Angel's dark side. That part of the Darla storyline was fantastic! I would watch those episodes again, no problem.

Then they had to go and ruin the Whole thing. Angel went into this repentant/brood mode again and decided that Wesley should be in charge. WHAT!?!?!?

And if putting Wesley in charge wasn't enough we ended up in Lorne's homeland. That whole storyline bored me. It went on so much longer than it needed too. Also, it made me hate Wesley. I'm done with him. Maybe he'll redeem himself for me but it's going to take a lot.

At the moment I prefer Gunn to Wesley and I really didn't think that would ever happen. I am So Sick of this Wesley in charge crap too.

The only redeeming thing that came out of that storyline was Fred. I don't have strong feeling about her either way yet but she's on the almost adorable side of the spectrum.

Then there's Lorne. Umm. I kind of think the whole "you have to sing so I can read you" thing is kind of silly. He's just one more character that isn't doing it for me.

So, to recap. I love Angel, he's awesome, will never not love him but, deferring to Wesley is NOT working for him. I Hate Wesley. Fred is kind of precious. Cordelia, I'm not warming up to her very much either. Gunn is growing on me a bit. Lorne is silly.

I want so much to love this show. I really really do. (Hence, I'm still watching.)

I love my Netflix watch instantly. I was recently able to rewatch the entire series of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I love that show and missed it a lot. It was nice to see it again.

Since I finished Buffy I thought I would move on to Angel. I was never really into Angel when it was on. Not sure why, I just didn't watch. So, now I've been watching Angel.

I miss Buffy. Not just the series, the character. I'm a BIG fan of Angel/Buffy. Sure she had that thing with Spike and that was fine for the moment but way back in Season three of Buffy in the episode "Enemies." Angel said to Buffy, "You still my girl?" Her answer is it, people. "Always." She will never not love Angel. (And neither will I.)

So, this Angel series . . . While I love Angel (and David Boreanaz) the res of the cast is seriously leaving a lot to be desired. They killed off the next best character to Angel in episode NINE of season ONE. Doyle was awesome and I totally miss him all the time.

Wesley, I don't mind Wesley. He's an okay character. He's no Doyle, but I'll deal.

Cordelia? I freakin' can't stand Cordelia. Seriously. And Angel and Cordelia together?!?! I want to gag. Literally, it's gross. So very wrong. I have no problem with looking at them in a brother/sister kind of way. I think it's sweet every time Angel refers to Cordelia as family.  I think Cordelia and Wesley would make a nice couple. But I only just finished season one.

Gunn. I don't like Gunn either. But like I said I only just finished season one. Maybe I just have to get used to him.

I haven't met Fred or Lorne yet. I have met Lindsay. The character is good and Christian Kane looks FANTASTIC in this part but Lindsay McDonald is an idiot. He's so dumb.

I think that's it for now. Maybe I'll have more when I finish season two.

Bones - Wishes for Season Six

I've been waiting for Booth and Brennan to get together just like everyone else.

David Boreanaz is such a good actor. It kills me to see Booth loving Brennan without having her return the affection. I mean, it's adorable the way he treats her and the way he looks at her (I could go on for ages on that!) but she's making me crazy!

I think that it's time that Brennan stops thinking SO MUCH with her head and starts using her heart a little. I love her, but she really annoys me sometimes. (Right here I should add that J says Brennan reminds him of me. Also that friend I talked about yesterday. She thinks the same. Should I be worried? I'm not sure whether that's a compliment or not . . .)

My wishes for season six?

I hope Booth comes back from Afghanistan with a girlfriend whom he adores. I want to see him looking at her with those adoring eyes that he always used on Brennan. I want sweet looks and cute kisses and a Super Happy Booth. I want a girlfriend who's sweet and smart and who adores him right back.

And I want a Brennan so very jealous that she can't sleep at night!

It would serve her right. Look, I don't want this Booth/Other girl thing to go on forever. I want Booth and Brennan together but I'm REALLY tired of seeing Brennan hurt Booth and I want some payback. I want her to see how much he likes this girl and how happy he can make her and how happy they are together and I want her to REALIZE THAT SHE MADE A HUGE MISTAKE!

Bones - Gettng hooked

So, Bones.

I never watched this show. I had no idea what it was about. When I would see previews on TV I always thought that David Boreanaz's character was Bones. Haha. That's how little I knew.

Then somehow, I'm not sure how, possibly our mutual affection for Leverage, I met @Krista_Booth on Twitter.

 Krista is a BIG Bones fan. I owe my entire love of and devotion to Bones to Krista. By the way, THANK YOU SO MUCH, KRISTA!!! (Just a note: Even if Krista weren't a Bones fan she's still a pretty ok person. Actually, she's an awesome person! Internet friends rock!) :)

Now, this whole Bones thing . . .

Is there anyone who doesn't want Booth and Brennan to end up together in the end? I don't know anyone.

I was talking to my friend the other day and she said she was bored . . .

Me: Netflix, Youtube?
Her: I looked on Netflix and nothing interested me.
Me: Try a TV show called Bones. It's really good and it's not creepy (This because I KNOW she saw "Bones" and thought horror something.)
Her: Ok, I'll check it out.
Me: I hope you like it because it really is a fantastic show.

The next day I talked to her. You know what she said? "Oh by the way I'm totally hooked on Bones. I watched four episodes that first night!

I was sooo excited!! Haha. Then she said: "I'm just dying to know if Booth and Bones hook up!"

I felt sorry for her. Haha. She's only four episodes in and is already dying to know if they get together. Meanwhile the rest of us are waiting for season six and we're STILL daying to know if they "hook up!"

Tomorrow my post will include my wishes for season 6.

I finally got to see Inception. I've been waiting months for this movie!

I. Loved. It.

I might have to watch it two or three more times to grab onto some of the parts that I missed. I'm not used to watching multi-level movies. Although, I think I should be able to "suffer" through a few more viewings. I'm going to be all over this movie when it hits DVD!

If you like movies that make you think then this is totally for you! Also, the cast was excellent. To be honest I never was what you would call a "fan" of anyone in the movie, not that I don't like them, just that they're not on the top of my list. But, they were all just great in this movie! I particularly enjoyed Ellen Page and I think I'll be checking out more of her work. (To be honest, I don't know if I've ever seen her in anything. Always meant to watch Juno but never did.)

If you're going to see this movie make sure you PAY ATTENTION! It's easy to get lost if you're not following along.

Go see Inception!

This has been a spoiler free Inception appreciation post. Check back for a spoiler Full Inception appreciation post. :)

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Personality Quiz

I'm a Great Big Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan. I'm not ashamed to admit it either. That was a great show, with great writing.

Anywhere, somewhere along the line I came across this link: The 4-Variable Buffy Personality Test

You answer a bunch of silly questions and it tells you which character on Buffy you are most like.

I took the test. I was kind of expecting either Willow or Giles as I relate more to them than the others. However, when I got my result it occurred to me that, yea, it was kind of correct and I can totally see how it would compare me to . . .


Your result for The 4-Variable Buffy Personality Test...

Tara Maclay

45% amorality, 45% passion, 82% spirituality, 73% selflessness
What a woman!

Tara is a moral, centered, spiritual and selfless person... rather, I suspect, like you. People like this make those around them love them.

Congratulations! (and stay away from windows, just in case)

Take The 4-Variable Buffy Personality Test at OkCupid


Yup, I can actually see the "resemblance."

Who did you get?

The Sorcerer's Apprentice

I went to see The Sorcerer's Apprentice last week.

I'm not really sure what I was expecting. It looked promising but Nicolas Cage just isn't my favorite actor. Nothing personal he just doesn't do much for me. 

The movie itself wasn't too bad! It had funny moments and lots of action. It did seem to move a tad bit fast for me. At first the kid couldn't do anything and then at the end of the movie all of a sudden he was doing everything. I was like, What?

None of the characters were really endearing to me. Hence, I don't have a favorite. (Not because they were all great but because no one stood out.) If I was forced to pick I guess I would say Alfred Molina. Maybe more because of the actor than the character though.

I had no idea that the movie had anything to do with the Merlin legend. That was a nice surprise but I've been watching so much Merlin lately that I had some issues with it. Nothing huge just seeing Morgana (the Morgana I love so much in Merlin) evil and played by Alice Krige (not a fan of hers either, sorry).

I guess all in all it wasn't a bad movie but it's not going on my favorites list. Also, if you watch it there is a very short blip of a scene after the ending credits. Just so you know!

How I Met Your Mother

Remember how I said I owe a lot to Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Uh huh. Not only did it introduce me to the wonderful Anthony Head and Emma Caulfield but it also introduced me to Alyson Hannigan.

I don't know if I could love her more. She's awesome! This isn't a post about Alyson Hannigan, although maybe one day I'll have one of those. This is about another show that I discovered because she is in it.

How I Met Your Mother is hilarious. Although, I seem to be a bad fan because I only recently started watching. I've got Toby Tivo set to record it on every channel that airs it but it's not enough! I want more!

Lily is great and she is definitely my favorite female on the show but you've GOT to love Barney. Neil Patrick Harris is so great! On a side note, who knew Doogie Howser would do so well later in life?

The rest of the cast is great too but Lily and Barney are defnitely my favorites. Right now I just wish I could afford the show on DVD. It would be much easier to catch up!

I guess I owe a lot Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I keep mentioning it, don't I?

I was introduced to a lot of actors through that show, including Emma Caulfield.

She was in a movie that was recently released and I really wanted to see. Luckily for me it's streaming instantly on Netflix (or I have no idea where I would have found it). TiMER

It's kind of like a Romance and Science Fiction all rolled into one.

You have a timer implanted in your arm and if your Soul Mate also has a timer it will begin to count down to the exact day you will meet them. For some it's a very short time and for others the timer is counting down for years.

Would you really want to know something like that? Not too mention, do you believe that there is JUST ONE person for everyone?

The timers do seem to cause a bit of problems. WHY would get a timer implanted if you were already married? Wouldn't you be worried that it might start counting down? Bummer!

Overall I actually enjoyed the movie. It didn't end at all how I expected which was refreshing. And Emma Caulfield was just as great as ever. How can you not love her?


And if you're a fan of Ms. Caulfield you can find her on Twitter, @EmmaCaulfield

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

I think I might have been the last person in the world to see this movie but I FINALLY watched it the other night.

Oh. My. Word. How did it get to be such a classic? I alternated between laughing out loud and realizing that my mouth was hanging open.

I've always liked Tim Curry but . . . Well, yea. I liked Susan Sarandon's character. I suppose you could call Janet my favorite but . . . Haha, it's so funny because I can barely find words to describe my feelings regarding this movie.

It seemed a bit thrown together. Or maybe I just didn't get it. I mean, was Eddie really necessary? You know besides the great entrance and then his presence at dinner later. What about the whole preacher and the farmer couple at the beginning. I was confused about that too.

And the ENDING! What the heck?! I don't even know where to begin with the ending. Aliens? Really? They were aliens? Frank dies? Oh yea, they were ALIENS?!!?

I don't feel so ridiculous for having waited so long to see this movie now. I will give it this though. They've got some awfully catchy songs! I knew half of them before I ever saw the movie of course, but it was neat seeing them in context. Hehe.

Now that I've seen the movie I have to say (like I already said) I love Tim Curry BUT . . . Anthony Head did Frank WAY better. Not to mention he's much sexier.

By the way, I've had the songs stuck in my head for DAYS!

Merlin - A Show That Surprised Me

So there's this guy . . . His name is Anthony Head. I fell in love with him in Buffy the Vampire Slayer WAY back when. Recently, however, he showed back up on my TV in a show called Merlin.

Merlin looked like one of those shows that I wouldn't be interested in. I only turned it on because of the genius that is Tony Head. Was I ever surprised when I discovered what a good show it actually is!.

I love every one of the characters in a different way. (Except for the Dragon. He annoys me to no end!)

There are some shows that make it very difficult for me to pick a favorite character (because they're all great) and this is one of them.

I do have a soft spot for Morgana. First, she reminds me of me. She isn't afraid to speak her mind. I also feel bad for her. The poor thing must be terrified. No wonder she goes off the deep end! I'm thinking I know how Uther may meet his end . . .

I have another soft spot for Gwen. Just because she' awesome. Very excited about her and Arthur. I wish their relationship would develop already!

Arthur I love because I can see a future King in him. He has intelligence and ruling smarts that he gets from his Dad but he also has compassion and understanding. He'll be a great King.

Uther Pendragon . . . Oh, Uther, how conflicted you make me. Some of my favorite and my least favorite scenes involve this jerk. Hehe. I love love his scenes with Arthur. I love that you can see how much he adores his son. I also HATE the way he treats Morgana (Although, you have to admit, she does ask for it most of the time). Also, he is freakin' creepy scary! (Once again, Morgana must just be terrified of him.) But even with all my love/hate for Uther his scenes will always make me happiest, because there is never going to be a time that I can't adore Anthony Head. (Even if he is scaring the crap out of me at the time!)

I know I didn't mention Merlin or Gaius but I love them both too! Everyone is awesome!

Welcome to my new ranting and raving blog.

When I watch a TV show or movie I tend to get rather involved. I enjoy commenting on the content, cast or characters. I thought this would be a great way to be able to do that without annoying anyone. Here you can choose to read or choose not to read and I still get to make my points!

I enjoy many TV shows but sometimes I get into a rut regarding one show or another. So, there may be multiple posts on one show or movie until I feel the need to move on.

Some of the shows that I foresee being mentioned here may include, but are not limited to:

The Mentalist
Buffy the Vampire Slayer

If any of these interest you then you might want to stay tuned. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
