Asta 2

(no subject)

In an effort to prove I can talk about shows other than the one that shall not be named that has eaten my brain, I will make random observations about other shows.

I watched 'Veronica Mars' tonight. That's four weeks in a row! I'm still not seeing what everyone else is seeing, but I was able to tear myself away from the dirty dishes as soon as the commercial breaks ended, so, progress. Tonight's ep was 'Russkie Business'. OK, there can't possibly be shipper wars on this show because it's pretty obvious even to this casual viewer that Logan and Veronica belong together. Then again, it doesn't seem that Veronica has bought herself a clue yet. Even Duncan picked up on the how they looked in the hallway. The not so subtle arm touching? He soooo wants you sweetie. And in the twisted social setting of high school, it's his way of showing everyone that they're friendly/friends, making her cool by association again and no longer the school outcast.

Oh, lets not forget the breaking down and crying on Veronica's shoulder. The angst! Love it!

Now, why did his mother have to die and not that bitch sister? I didn't think I could hate Aly more. I can!

I followed up with watching Black Adder on BBC America. They were showing the final two eps of series 2 which both featured Hugh Laurie. His Prince Ludwig, self-proclaimed master of disguise, is hysterical. It's funny how when I started watching House all I could think of was his work on Black Adder. Now, I watch Black Adder and think of House.

I just found out some casting info regarding the upcoming season of Alias.....they hired that no talent blonde from 'The Inside' as Syd's new mentee?! What the hell is JJ thinking? Kill the show by degrees? It almost makes me long for the return of Lauren. Honestly, I'm not sure even Michael Vartan will be enough to keep me around. And how is he going to deal with playing the father to the baby of the man he got tossed over for? Yikes.

See, whole post, didn't once mention you know what. :)

Eh, it's possible. I just have zero interest in Logan/Veronica. I'm not sure there's really ship competition though either. That really is the only romance that's gotten any attention. I was way more interested in Duncan/Veronica right from Ep. 3 on, but they didn't get much play at all. But yeah, there's not a real triangle on the show. I have a feeling they'll use Duncan as an obstacle in S2, but he's really just going to be a plot device for V/L. Which, since they don't do much for me, is why I'm not sure I'll stick with it next season.
Yeah, I think they'll force the love triangle in Season 2 too (how original). KB is even under the impression that the overwhelming ship is Veronica and Duncan. Shades of Buffy anyone? And it's not that I don't like Duncan, it's just that from what I've seen I'm not seeing a ton of romantic chemistry there. I'm really only a casual viewer and I need to share all my ship angst for 'Galactiaca'. ;)
I love you more and more everyday. Eventually my heart will 'splode. ;-)

I know! So angsty and pretty I cannot stand it. By the by, I am now watching that episode. I watched it like two days ago, but your discussion has prompted me to watch yet again. I think this makes #4, 572. :-)

I haven't really run across any, but I tend to stay in places where V/L is The Ship. I'm smart like that, yo.
I forgot to mention: Did you catch him mouthing "no" when Trina was talking about his beatings? It broke my wee heart it did.
Awwww, no, I missed that. If I remember, I can maybe catch it on the weekend repeat. How sweet. He's worried about the girl he was terrorizing at the start of the season finding out the truth. ;p
I missed it my first time around too. I only caught it on the second time 'cause I had read the TWoP recap and Couch Baron mentioned it. It's subtle and perfectly heartbreaking.

Don't do that! I don't want to have to clean up that mess. ;)

I forgot to say: I know! Ewww. As soon as I read that on scarcrest's LJ, I was filled with the desire to vomit. ::shudders:: I think what I actually thought was, "You cannot be serious"! Gah!

And then I remembered to be paralyzed with not caring. And that's where I am right now. :-)
Other than tuning in to find out who the hell Vaughn really is and watching the pretty (also Vaughn :), I really don't care. How sad. At least I have 'House' and BSG to occupy my thoughts now. :)
True. I mean, I'll still tune in as well, but I just have no great love for it anymore. I was a little bored during most of last season. Far too much Nadia, y'know. But now with this new (lackluster) addition? Eh.

As I was about to post this, I realized I don't even have an Alias icon anymore. Huh.

Me either. I deleted the last one I had to make room for guess who? ;)

Yeah, last season was very uneven for me and while I'm not faulting Jen for getting pregnant, I just knew that had to have thrown a wrench in JJ's plans. I'll definitely give it a try when it debuts in September, but I won't be shocked if I quit watching. I never thought I'd be saying those words. :(
Right! I don't want to set Jen on fire for getting pregnant and possibly helping to lead to the downfall of a perfectly good show. (Now, the demon spawn I may have a problem with. ;-) ) Mostly because the show was on its last legs with me anyway. Unless I am absolutely amazed and soon, I'm sure I'll be dropping it like I dropped Smallville last year. There's just too much good stuff to spend time watching something that's merely fair when it used to awesome.
it's pretty obvious even to this casual viewer that Logan and Veronica belong together.

Awww... now there's something to hang your hat on!! :)
Hey, when all else fails throw an attractive, emotionally screwed up, angst ridden guy into the mix and I'll tune in. ;)
But there are shipper wars already...
There are die hard Duncan/Veronicas (same mentality as the Angel/Buffy shipper; first true love, Logan's bad for her, blah blah)... and there are even Wallace/Veronica shippers. I mean, they ARE best friends. Also, some people really liked her relationship with Leo. Not sure if there are any die-hard shippers...but there are many people who don't like the Loganica. Even tho they are just so cute together. ;)
Leo? Eek! Well, there are Riley shippers. It's a crazy world. Even with the little bit I saw of Leo/veronica last night, I was squicked. I mean, a sheriff's deputy taking a high schooler to a school dance? Yeah, that happens ALL the time.
Since VM fandom has inherited every other aspect of Buffy wankiness, the ship wars are only a matter of time.

It's a pretty clever little show, though, isn't it?
