Day 26 - OMG WTF? Season finale

It had been my understanding that Philip Glenister didn't want to do a third series of Ashes to Ashes, so the cliffhanger ending of 2.08 took me completely by surprise at the time. Only later did I learn that a third series had been commissioned.

Something similar happened with Nurse Jackie. I thoroughly enjoyed this show, but the final episode (or so I thought) ended in chaos. It all but killed my love for the series, until I read on IMDb that there was going to be a second season. (And, as I now see, a third one as well. How silly of me to think they would quit so soon!) Anyway, looking forward to it.

Day 23 - Most annoying character

I am pretty sure we are meant to agree with Blackadder that Lord Flashheart is an arrogant git, but my dislike was such at first that I could barely watch him whenever he was on screen. (Nothing to do with Rik Mayall, it was purely the character.) It took some rewatching before I understood, and cracked up at, a rather crude joke of his and after that I couldn't not like him any more.

Other characters I have found annoying include: Daisy in Dead Like Me; Buster in Arrested Development; Lucy in Being Human; Alex in series 1 of Ashes to Ashes; and also somewhat in series 3, because she seems so taken with Jim Keats, whom any person in their right mind can see is an utter creep.

But the start of the third series of Mistresses has reminded me how much I want to slap Katie. She must certainly win first prize here, with Trudi from the same series coming in a close second.

I've decided to do one post for yesterday's and today's questions, because they are connected and I can't say much about either of them without giving away spoilers.

Day 06 - Favorite episode of your favorite t.v show

The first time I watched Life on Mars my favourite was 1.06. That changed upon rewatching, when my favourites became 1.01 and 1.08. 1.01 is a fantastic series opener. A little full perhaps, but absolutely brilliant. 1.08 is a bittersweet (more bitter than sweet) episode in which some of Sam's (and the viewers') questions are answered. A great season finale.

Day 07 - Least favorite episode of your favorite t.v show

I find 1.03 as a whole not very compelling, although it has some great moments. 1.07 is really good, but very grim, with little room for humour. I prefer the somewhat lighter episodes.


In other, related, news, I finally started my Ashes to Ashes marathon yesterday. I was rather shocked to find how much the early episodes simply rehash Life on Mars. Very lazy writing. Also, I had forgotten how annoying Alex is in the first series. No wonder the fans weren't happy with this watered-down spin-off.

So. Last episode of Ashes to Ashes tonight. I have basically let the whole of series 3 wash over me because I was getting more confused by the week, but I did enjoy reading other people's whacky theories. I must say I was pretty amazed at how much of it turned out to be correct.

I wasn't sure about how it started off tonight, but then it picked up and turned into a great finale. The only thing I didn't like spoiler, obvsCollapse )
