Been watching a lot of new shows. And old ones too.( Collapse )( Collapse )( Collapse )( Collapse )( Collapse )( Collapse )( Collapse )
I've also been translating Alias season 4, and man, I'd forgotten how much I hate Syd's reaction to Jack killing Irina. Jack probably doesn't help matters by not explaining things, but you'd think after all they've gone through and all he's done for her she'd at least give him a chance. I mean, the man refused to give up his search for her even when it landed him in prison! Ungrateful little bitch... *grumble grumble*
And I've been rewatching Wonderfalls. I only meant to cap an episode, but then I started watching and soon I'll have seen them all again. Out of order, because apparently I wasn't willing to admit I was doing a rewatch so I skipped around.
I really do think Jaye is my favorite female character in a long time. Maybe my favorite female character ever. And the actress has a lot to with it, because she's the reason Jaye can be sarcastic, sad, shocked and happy all in the space of one scene and still be believable.
My favorite part about the show is Jaye's relationship with her family. How she starts off trying to act like they're just a nuisance and ends up realizing how much she loves and needs them. I love the whole screwed-up bunch and the thought of all the missed opportunities there makes me want to cry.
I think the only weakness, at least from my point of view, is Eric. I just find him boring. And I kinda 'ship him and Jaye in the same way I 'ship Mal and Inara - until something better comes along. I think it's the whole "they're destined for each other" thing that I fight against with every fiber of my being. Kinda funny since the whole show is about surrendering to destiny, but there you go.
