strange interests

nicked from the always interesting hieispike:

1. Scan my interests list and pick out one that seems odd to you or you don't understand.
2. I'll explain it.
3. Then you post this in your journal so other people can ask you about your interests!

Why. The freak. Do you like. GILMORE GIRLS?!

That's not a fair question, because you already asked me that, and my explanation has not changed in the past couple of weeks. Try again!

Battlestar Galactica

Battlestar Galactica
Ah, heck, that one's easy: I grew up on science fiction. I like spaceships and dogfights and explosions. Oh, and Sharon. So much hotter than the original Boomer (who, in his defense, was male). :-)

Re: Battlestar Galactica
LMAO Okay I love stuff like Battlestar Galactica myself but your answer with Sharon had my laughing. Now give me the explanation on Gilmore Girls because even I don't watch that and I have watched some screwed up animee just because my husband likes it. LOL

Yeah also, me doing this little meme at this time won't happen for a simple reason. I haven't updated my interests since I got my LJ and all I did when I started it was slap down BTVS stuff. LOL

the Girls
Hey, anime's not screwed up. It's just .... different. In fact, I'm here because of following my youngest daughter from interest to interest, which went from Oz to Sailor Moon and, eventually, to Buffy. Without anime I'd have never met this wonderful bunch of writers.

Gilmore Girls? My explanation is in two parts: the high-falutin' part involves the great characterization and fantastic dialogue on the show. Taking the low road, there are several hot looking females on Gilmore Girls. Take your pick!

she whispers to ghosts, see ... :-)
That's a show I watch regularly, but don't really count among my top favorites. I like "communicating with ghost" stories, and Jennifer Love Hewitt is both easy on the eyes and a good actress. It's a good show, but a bit overly sentimental even for my tastes -- and I'm very sentimental! But I don't know how long it will last; many of the episodes are already starting to resemble each other, especially toward the end.

sentimental can be fun
Oh, I don't like *sad* sentimental stuff -- I'm all for the happy endings. I could never watch Old Yellow again!

Well, as I said about "Ghost Whisperer", I like shows that deal with communicating with ghosts. "Medium" and "Ghost Whisperer" are similar in theory -- both deal with women who can communicate with the spirit world -- but "Medium" is more of a crime drama, with its main character working with the district attorney's office to solve crimes. It's imaginative and not for the squeamish, and there's a great chemistry among the cast members.

Like most JossVerse fans, I was willing to follow former "Buffy" and "Angel" cast members wherever they went. I liked the shows so much, I wanted *some* part of them to continue. Sometimes that led to disappointments, such as "Kitchen Confidential"; but even though I don't usually watch "CSI" type dramas, I really enjoy "Bones". It's basically just another police procedural, but the cast has great chemistry, there's lots of humor, and the premise at least seems reasonable ... although I have to wonder how much of their resources the Smithsonian would really give toward FBI investigations.

Oh i see, didn't know it was a TV show.

I don't watch much TV. :\

TV show
Oh, of course -- what was I thinking, making that assumption? Well, David Boreanaz plays an FBI agent, and Emily Deschanel plays a Forensic anthropologist who actually works for the Jeffersonian Museum, not the Smithsonian as I said earlier. :-( Some fans don't much like Deschanel, but even though she's an unusual character who wouldn't be easy to warm up to in real life, I think they've got pretty good chemistry. That's about it for the show -- except, as you may have figured out, they deal with bones a lot.

Firefly. Because honestly, I've tried to like that show and just don't. (I suppose it might help if I borrowed the DVDs sometime and watched the whole thing in order, but so far I Just Don't Get It.)
May. 24th, 2006 09:33 pm (UTC)
It absolutely has to be watched in order! I believe that's the main reason the show failed -- it was aired out of order, and the critical pilot episode never got aired until the end of the show's run.

Having said that, however, I'll be the first to admit Firefly's not for everyone. Science Fiction fans might not get that the show's actually a Western that happens to be set in space, and the show's got a warped sense of humor that's just not for everyone. But I really loved both the cast and the characters, and I thought it was one of the more original (by TV standards) and better quality shows to come out in awhile -- which pretty much doomed it, I suppose.
