- I finally watched "Moonlight" and I liked it. A LOT. First I shall get out of the way all the things that are bad in this show (only in my own opinion, of course!). I like vampire stories, I honestly do. I have been reading and watching various stories about supernatural since I was at school and first red Alexey Konstantinovich Tolstoy's (don't confuse with Lev nikolaevich Tolstoy, the author of "Anna Karenina") most excellent "Vurdalak" . Vurdalak is another word for Vampire in Russian (the word Vampire also exists in Russian) but really more in the old Slavonic legends sense. A. Tolstoy had a whole series of short stories derived from old Slavonic legends and all of them are incredible but in a very scary, no punches, no nice vampires way. All this said, I think I am coming to the end of my tether with Vampire stories on TV. I think if I see another Vampire story anywhere soon I am going to go crazy (well, this is exaggeration, of course :D) Seriously - What is it with Vampire stories nowdays? Why are there so many of them all over sudden? "Blood ties" and "Moonlight" can be twins!!!!
- But what is really wrong with "Moonlight" (apart of the whole "just another show about the same thing among a hundred of others" curse) that "Moonlight" is made in a strangely odd and "plastic" way and I wonder what sort of drugs the guy responsible for it's cinematography is taking. In this day and age students at media courses do better than this.
+ Now all the bad stuff is out of the way I get to the part where I loooooved the first episode of "Moonlight". (And I even watched it twice). Because I am totally irrational and I take it that the Vampire story line is not important in "Moonlight" but the story line about one cursed love is. And the chemistry and interaction between Alex O'Loughlin and Sophia Myles in the first episode was great and fabulous. The first time she touched him? It was so wonderful! Everything about "Moonlight" promises tons of guilty pleasure and clichés but I like it. :D And may be I will be the only person who loves "Moonlight" but I feel I'll persevere and I am with it till the end. Also Alex O'Loughlin is scrummy and ( how would you not like this )Bionic woman
I have watched the second episode and I am giving up on this. Michelle Ryan is as bad as she was during her "East Enders" days, Katee Sackhoff is pretty but the show is quite useless. Supernatural
Oh, how I missed you! Sam! Dean! Pretty! New long arch with the demons that escaped Hell at the end of the season two! Mysterious Ruby! I think she is a new romantic interest for Sam but what do you think? Does anyone know if Jo is returning or not?
This show wasn't my favourite when it started but it is really catching up in quality and it is so NICE to look at. I enjoy it so much and it isn't even a guilty pleasure for me anymore – I think the show that stayed good through two seasons and seems to be getting better again totally deserves all recognition it gets.( Dean is saying that he could not live with Sam being dead )Dexter
I have spoiled myself for the first two episodes of the season two, but isn't it a very, very interesting beginning? It kept me on the edge of my seat so many times!House
Hmm. I have always thought that I am in this show because of Hugh Laurie. But now I have realized that no, I wasn't .The first two episodes of "House" without Cameron, Chase and Foreman were rather quite boring for me. May be some of House's jokes are getting too old for me too but I am not sure yet – it could be that I am just missing Cameron, House and Chase.Jorneyman
Hmm. I am involved and I am bored at the same time. I find the story about Dan's family and his past interesting to watch but the stories about people from the past leave me cold yet. Angel
I am stuck on "In the dark" episode, namely on the torture scene with the "evil Nazi doctor" guy.. I feel that I have seen the exactly same scene so many times (especially in "Buffy") that it is getting quite tiring, especially considering I don't have any worries about Angel's future (he has to last 5 seasons, after all!) BUT! I love Doyle! And YAY to his REAL Irish accent! PS
Have a nice weekend, everyone! I feel a little drained – I think it must be the time to start jogging again ( I had a two –week break) .
