I just marathoned through the first two seasons of Leverage
I love it.
It's a silly, but clever rendition of "The A-Team", only with less smoking and more drinking.
Watching it on the week of Torchwood
's "Deathversary" is meaningful.
I watched CoE three times in a row the week after it came out. Yeah, like that. And I haven't watched it since. I thought I could, but I can't. It's going to have to wait when I have the energy for a proper Torchwood
I realised that despite my focus being on Jack and Ianto, watching the program, I mostly enjoyed the group dynamic. The different and clashing personalities interact and not to mention, the underlying darkness (at times overt, most of the time subverted) is something I need in a show and most television shows simply don't deliver.
I began watching White Collar
and kind of lost interest along the way, I like Neal and Peter and El as the OT3 of awesome. But the Kate side-plot really didn't grab me and I'm more interested in Moz than in Neal. Also, the whole procedural thing... not as interesting as it used to be.
Still, pretty clothes and pretty people.
I'll keep watching, as many smart people are enjoying it.
I happened to catch an ep on television about a week ago, an early second season episode which I later realised was the "The Tap Out Job", yes violence on teevee captures my imagination.
The characters are fascinating, I like team work and dynamics, I really like the fact that they work outside the law and their ethics are sticky and tricky.
Hearing Christian Kane speak Hebrew to Noa Tishby in "The Two Live Crew Job" episode was pure gold
. GOLD. Just, what the fuck man... give up some phlegm baby!
He has got the best hair EVAR.
Also, so many genre actors? Armin Shimerman, Jeri Ryan, Brent Spiner, Wil Wheaton
By the way, if I could spend some quality time with Hardison my life would be complete! Doctor Who FTW!
Any way, I've just finished the first two seasons, I'm quite happy that I'll soon be caught up and be able to do what I usually do... lurk around fandom and maybe participate in Meta.
Although I'm kind of itching for a Torchwood/Leverage crossover.
Seriously, what is with all the SPN crossovers? Since when did that become a Fandom Bicycle.
As per usual there are problems, what with the clishes, stereotyping, Happy End mentality and just plain WTF plot lines (which I love), still there is underlying darkness that is at times overt.
Parker is fascinating and kinda gay (I get bi vibes from her), which is something I don't see a whole lot of fandom talking about, though I've seen the femmslash, though it seems that there is more het and slash (per usual)... but I like that the petite, perky, slightly bonkers and freakishly strong blonde is kinda gay.
I'm not sure if I like Nate. I know I love Eliot, then again, I always like the ones we know the least about - which makes me love Sophie just as much... she's such a Matta Hari...in the best way possible.
Is there more Sterling in season 3? Please say yes!
More Meta and why I like it and how it connects with Torchwood
(yeah, I know) once I have gotten completely up to date.
