  • Mood:

See, this is why I love the Brits

Long Way Down is available for pre-order at Amazon before the show has even started airing. I'm gonna hold off on ordering for a while, see if it drops in price. (PotC: AWE dropped three pounds between the time I added it to my wish list to the time I ordered it. Which was five minutes ago. When I also ordered Becoming Jane. I have no will power whatsoever.)



I'm ridiculously behind on my 100 Movies in 2007 thing. I guess having some time while I was on vacation made me gravitate towards TV shows instead, and now I'm having a hard time getting back into the swing of things. That said, I'm watching Zoolander right now.



I'm not bothered in the least that KB is going to be on the show. I actually think she's a good actress (yes, still), and that the writing was the main culprite in my problems with Veronica as a character. Sure, I think KB putting more vulnerability into the part could have helped immensely, but that's only because the characterization was well...not good.

Actually, the more I think about season 3 Veronica, the more I realize that my problem isn't really the characterization. (I have much bigger ones with Veronica in early to mid season 2. That Veronica I just don't GET. At all.) The problem is the disconnect between what I see and what I think the writers were trying to do. I think season 3 Veronica is a fascinating portrait of someone on a downward spiral, becoming more and more reckless and heading for complete and utter disaster.

And I don't think that was the writers' intention at all. (And I cannot understand why a writer wouldn't find that interesting, but that ship sailed long ago.) Of course, the good thing about the show being over is that I don't have to care about those intentions anymore.



Okay, you guys, what is up with these new moods I'm getting? "*drool*, *thud*, Suicidal, On Top of the World?" Does this mean that all our old mood themes are going to be outdated/have to be redone? Because I love my AD mood theme like burning, but anniesj isn't really around these days and I doubt she's going to update it.
