I took part in that TV tropes meme thing, so if anyone has anything to say about me*g*



Day 1: A show that never should've been canceled.
Day 02 - A show that you wish more people were watching

Day 03 - Your favorite new show (aired this TV season)
Day 04 - Your favorite show ever
Day 05 - A show you hate
Day 06 - Favorite episode of your favorite TV show
Day 07 - Least favorite episode of your favorite TV show
Day 08 - A show everyone should watch
Day 09 - Best scene ever
Day 10 - A show you thought you wouldn't like but ended up loving




Day 11 - A show that disappointed you

Hard to say. One show I thought I would love was True Blood. Can't say it exactly disappointed me, but... I'm trying to get into it, but I just can't seem to get past the accents.
Reaper, which I really wanted to like, but which makes me cringe a time or two too often.

But as for disappointing, I'd have to go with Buffy. After s5 I was really excited to see s6 and especially at the start of it, I was really excited and loved it. Only then the scoobies cast Spike out again and Buffy became less and less likable. I know, artistic vision, but to see Buffy use and hurt Spike like that really hurt... And then the way they took the interesting storyline of Willow slowly sliding into evil and turned it into magic=drugs crap... that was plain out bad.

I also wished they'd made better use of Xander, and the failure of his wedding to Anya that was just... fail.

Now don't get me wrong, I do like big parts of the season and the spuffy scenes are some of the strongest in the series, but after the somewhat hopeful build up of s5, the slow and casual destruction of anything that made the scoobies likable in s6 was really disappointing.

Day 12 - An episode you've watched more than 5 times

I could say 'Beneath you' since I have watched that final scene dozens of times, but that wouldn't include the full ep.

So I'm going with an ep that I keep rewatching in full.

Jus in Bello. Probably my all time favorite Supernatural ep. From the moment that the boys get arrested, to the entry of the first of the demons, to Henrickson getting possessed and finally realizing that the boys really do fight monsters, to Nancy choosing to allow herself to be sacrificed so her friends may be saved, to Dean and Victor utterly and absolutely refusing even the idea of it... to the look of Sam waffling and possibly even considering the idea...Not because Sam is bad, but because Ruby's offer is the pragmatic solution and this ep shows perfectly fine why Dean's the righteous man. Not to mention the implications coming from that later on...

And the ending where the boys find out that everyone died anyway and the shock on Dean and Sam's faces... While knowing from later on that if Dean were put in the exact same situation, he'd make the exact same choice. It might be just me, but I love heroes.

This ep holds a perfect combo of heroism with heroes innocently in prison scenes, which is probably the reason that Folsom Prison Blues holds a close second on the favorite spn eps list. (The Usual Suspects would be higher, if the actress playing the cop were better at her job, God, I love the character, but I simply can't stand her voice)

The accents on True Blood are horrid!. I'm Southern and they are enough to make my ears bleed. I think that's what you may end up with when people cast Brits, Australians, and New Zealanders as Southerners. The only actual Southerner on the show seems to be the guy playing Lafayette.

At any rate, it's best to approach True Blood as a cartoon. That's truly what it is, a lurid cartoon. But, if you're willing to just go with it, it does try really hard to be entertaining.

Honestly, I don't have a clue what a real southern accent is supposed to sound like. I just know that whenever people on that show start talking, my ears start hurting ;-)

The problem with season 6 was they drew all that stuff out too long. If it was just once with Spike, one mistake, and then Buffy dealt with it, it would've been okay. Ditto for Willow, since she had her one incident, got better, but then flipped out at the end of the season.

Nah that wasn't the problem. It's that every single thing went bad at the same time. Well ok, Buffy's depression was drawn out way too long, but...

Thing with Willow is of course for me coloured by the fact that I can't stand her. So seeing her go actually evil or at least over the edge without any excuses for it, like the magic=drugs thing would have been an improvement. But they pedaled back from that and then never had her realize that she'd mindraped Tara. (the fact that the two of them got back together again while Willow never even realized what she'd done wrong was a huge problem for me)

As for the Spike/Buffy thing, my main problem with how it was handled is that they treated it as if what Buffy did wrong was sleeping with Spike. While in reality, it wasn't that she slept with him, it's that she used another sentient being who loved her for her own selfish needs. That she used, abused and tried to rape him (Gone), that she beat him up and mistreated him... and yet we were supposed to see her as the victim...just because she got to sleep with a really hot guy who was in love with her and would do anything for her. (not that Spike's faultless, but the thing is, he was morally incapable of realizing that Buffy was using him to hurt herself and she's the one with the soul, the friends, the back up... and so on)

Willow and Tara got back together way too quickly and easily, obviously, but that was kind of the point since Willow got Tara only to immediately lose her again.

As for Buffy and Spike, I forget the episode, but there was that bit where she apologized for using him and even called him "William", so she did eventually come to realize what was wrong with what she was doing.
