Eurovision was great!! I love Petra, and Mans was cool too. But I have had the TRUE WINNER of Eurovision stuck in my head for days. 

And if Bulgaria or Australia couldn't win, at least Russia lost!

(Belarus was ROBBED!)

Lin and Tommy talk to Charlie Rose
  • Lin calls Tommy his work spouse.
  • Tommy: "I look at the songs between Washington and Hamilton, and I think 'Oh, Lin's just writing about us.'" - power couple where Tommy is CLEARLY taskmaster Washington.
  • The majority of the interview is Tommy praising Lin while Lin giggles nervously at his senpai noticing him, I just.
  • Tommy: "I hear Lin's voice in my head." He then gives an example of Lin actually reading his mind - they literally pass the broccoli test, I cannot.
  • Everyone asks Tommy "How is Lin handling this?" Because Tommy is the one who would know??
  • Charlie Rose being his portentous self - "So how did this... relationship begin?"

I cannot believe Good Wife did that to us. I just cannot believe... I have so many emotions. WHAT KIND OF UNRESOLVED ENDING RJEFIOAWFJWEIO

Meanwhile, I felt more emotions in the first 5 minutes of Good Wife than in the entire hour of OUAT with the three? four? deaths.

I can't believe I never posted about My Daughter Seo Young and You Who Came from the Stars, but it looks like not. Suffice it to say, I mainlined both dramas last year and was extremely happy with both - except the end of You Who Came from the Stars was a little weird. I also watched most of Famous Princesses (can you sense a Park Hae Jin theme?) and that was interesting too.

I was so excited to watch a drama with Park Hae Jin in it! The latter half did get a little boring/annoying with the Min Soo copycat plot, the ~stealing class notes~ plot, etc. But despite the behind-the-scenes controversy about the latter half, I was happy with this drama... until the last episode. )

Yes, the soundtrack was A++ like Coffee Prince. And the characters reminded me of Hana Yori Dango - there were elements of Domyouji and Rui in Yoo Jung and Baek In Ho.

My god, this Savage arc is so deadly boring. A slomo gundam fight, really??? There were some cute Snart and Mick moments, but overall, there was ZERO logic here. AND BORING. The dialog, ugh. Just kill Savage already ffs. Also no one cares about Carter. There will be dozens of Carters throughout history - just go to a different time and choose another if you have to have one. But I agree with Ray about choosing your own life instead of destiny. I can't believe Kendra is going back to that BS.

And once again in this ep, Snart proves that he should be captain. It seems like he does this every episode.

I saw Hamilton today! I also saw Pippa on the street, and avoided the news cameras. It was pretty much the best day ever! Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] tv_lurker for going with me. <3

(Although Lin, we could see every other performer's face from our balcony seats. Why was 50% of your performance your lovely forehead? Look up!)

I am still so team Hades/Zelena. Cora and Regina trying to make Zelena's memories disappear was so not cool, and I'm glad she prevented it. But if you think about it, Cora did memory manipulation of another sort when she brought back the childhood memories she took... if that was even true... I do hope that Zelena finds some fulfillment in a relationship with Regina, since Regina's treated her pretty badly so far.

I love Cruella as usual, but that David and James fight was just so ???

Cora going into the light was nice, though. <3

Good Wife
This last season is so entertaining - it's like watching a car crash. Also, I will miss the fake TV episodes they have lol. It was nice to see Zack and Grace, but LOL Zack, and Zack's girlfriend, just... lol. I am with you Alicia.

It was great to see MARISSA and more of Eli, of course.

I don't understand the Mars thing - is it an injoke from an ep I missed? Or is it literally "I like space. I like stuff about space." (My god, he does sound 12.) But then he won me over with the speech after that. I love Jason! (JDM also looks like he's flirting with whoever he talks to lol.)

This case against Peter is totally confusing, but at least everyone is getting involved in the same plotline for once!

I saw this film recently, and I really enjoyed parts of it. Of course, watching Jeremy Irons and Emma Thompson chew scenery at each other was the real treat!!!

But I did enjoy the high school premise, and the actors - the human boy was super smiley and cute. It would have been such a good film with just three changes:

1. No curse. The family dynamics were interesting enough without a curse, and their magic was dangerous enough to serve as a discouragement for getting involved with any mortal anyway. The real conflict should have been internally with the magical girl CHOOSING between darkness and light. The curse takes away all the stakes for the characters since there's nothing they can do anyway. And that whole "once you go dark you can't go back" thing seems like a dire enough climax to the story without a curse!

2. No past lives. I did appreciate that they didn't use the same actors for past selves - that is always so weird and unnatural. But having their love "destined" again removes any stakes or choice for the characters. They don't have to have a reason to fall in love - they just do. And their relationship was cute enough that it should stand on its own. Also, the weird semi-nostalgia for the slave Confederacy was creepy.

3. Explain everyone's powers. I was so confused about what casters could and couldn't do. I was even more confused about black librarian lady who had seer powers, but couldn't use them? And was forced to become a caster librarian because of hereditary reasons - that sounded really creepy?? Explaining more about the dark and light side, and strengths and weaknesses of certain (inborn?) magical specialties would make the temptation of the dark side more interesting.

For like five minutes I really hoped they were going to kill Rip, reboot the series, and have to re-form the team from Mama Timemaster's house.

They would all be emotionally well adjusted, and there would be no stupid Rip.

And maybe the time traveling would make sense if they had lived their lives out of time. The time travel "logic" so far makes zero sense.

At least Rip gave lip service to how stupid and selfish he is.

I liked Mick's talking with his younger self!

I'm glad Kendra didn't listen to her Old West self (because life with Carter ends in tragedy anyway so what's the difference!), but can she get literally anything to do besides romance?

I really hope this Vandal Savage arc ends soon.

Wait, so everyone knew Hunter Zolomon's face on Earth 2, but Jay Garrick was just running around as the Flash and no one recognized him?? I don't understand. Was it the beard?!

Also, that whole Iris conversation was so uncomfortable. Destiny is the WORST reason to be with someone - there's not even a choice there! She sounded like she was hiding behind that Barry reason because she wasn't ready to move on from Eddie - which is fine! She should just admit that.

Caitlyn really has bad luck in men... Cisco isn't doing too well in the romance department either, although I liked his relationship with Hawkgirl.

Other than that, this was an amazing episode. The team was adorable as was the family theme. I NEED that clip of the Vader conversation immediately, and Cisco was awesome.

[livejournal.com profile] paranoid_ninja and I finished watching season 2 of Agent Carter and wow. It is even better than the first season. I know!!

When Dottie was captured and waiting for Peggy, I was 100% convinced to become a Dottie/Peggy shipper.

I liked Jason, and I was disappointed by his choices.

It sounds like the writers heard the criticism of no black people in New York last season, and decided to have more black people in California. Only one asian really, the doctor, and no hispanics that I could see.

Jarvis was great, and his relationship with Peggy was great. But ANNA was the real star, she was such a breath of fresh air, kind of like Angie.

Speaking of Angie, I was kind of sad to not see her (except for that odd dance sequence), but I did hear Peggy say that she needed to go back to New York because her roommate was waiting for her.

And Rose! So good to give Peggy a female friend who is also kickass!

Sousa was okay, but I was kind of bored by their relationship. I finally really did like Thompson, so I was sad to see what happened to him at the end.

I can't believe they ended the season on such a cliffhanger, with Peggy not even decided on which coast she's going to live on! They definitely have to renew it!!!

The latest 2 episodes of Flash have been so good omg. I really love alternate universe Wells. And I'm so happy that Hartley is on the team too! The time wraith thing was total nonsense, though, especially since we haven't heard of them on Legends.

I think the Legends high point has been Night of the Hawk and Left Behind for me, 2 episodes back. I loved seeing Snart all handcuffed up and omg his hand. I kind of wish it hadn't been fixed right away - that seemed too easy. Snart and Mick's drama has been GREAT, and I'm glad they're developing Mick a little more. Him being back on the team is a little easy, but whatever. I wish he would make friends with SOMEONE the way that Snart and Sara have become friends. The way that the writers refuse to give Hawkgirl anything to do except romance is criminal, and this western episode was pretty cheesy. Sara's romance was at least INTERESTING, even if her brainwashing thing was questionable. At least the professor isn't such a sociopath anymore. Jax is still a total nonentity. And of course Rip needs to diaf.

[livejournal.com profile] lullabyeforyou and I have started bingewatching Shadowhunters. I know, I know, it's terrible (we actually call it "Terrible Show"), and I hate Cassandra Claire a lot, and it's completely derivative of the Draco Trilogy (and I'm sure other plagiarism).


You guys.

Magnus Bane is amazing. All those years watching Glee, and they never gave Harry Shum Jr. anything to do! I had no idea he could act so well!! I LOVE his physical acting, all his gestures. And his facial expressions and arch voice. And his makeup and jewelry I just!!!!!!

Alec is okay too, I guess, for a Harry Potter clone. A little robotic, so he only smiles when he's around Magnus. And that makes his smiles pretty adorable.

The latest ep we watched had the falcon story, though, and I loled at the plagiarism.

I LOVE Alicia & Jason and Diane & Kurt.

I missed a few episodes so I don't know what happened to Cary, but I don't... care... The writers have really done a number on his character.

The NSA is terrible.

Poor Peter.  Matthew Morrison is so evil I hate his face. I feel like Eli should be doing a better job against this.

The Canada stuff is so funny.

Alicia's hair is awful WTF is this new wig.

I am 100% here for Hades and Zelena wow, but I am 1000% here for 3 kickass lesbians Mulan, Ruby, and Dorothy.

I don't even care that Dorothy and Ruby just met, I love that they are in love and making out. <3333

I almost forgive CKR for always playing bad guys if they're this fun.

DAUGHTER OF ETA: Wait, this episode is actually... good? Whatever changes they made, I hope they keep it up! I am loving this Snart / Mick conflict and backstory!!!

OMG why all this ending drama??? Just drop Mick off back in 2042 like he wanted!

I still can't get over the fact that Anthony called Lin "baby boy" and then Lin called Anthony "baby boy" in a tweet and gave him the Grammy. (I didn't buy that whole "baby girl, send me a copy of this video" was directed at Lin in that earlier video.) But the whole cast are all so delightful and keep getting more so every day omg.

I haven't read any books yet, but the historical people are also getting more interesting by the day. Interesting commentary on the textual basis for characterization. Daveed is so smart!

I'm going April 27, I can't wait!
