There are no words for how hot Richard was in that scene Guisborne just had with Marian.

...is it me or is this episode better than the ones before? (Yes, I used the word better, and not less bad. I blame Richard. He makes me see layers of depth they probably never planned for.)

In other news:

- I do not understand why people hate Izzie. I'm not a huge fan of the millionaire plot either, but Izzie rocks.
- She doesn't rock as much as Bailey does, though. There's no telling what she'll do with all those hormones.
- Oh, Burke, oh, Izzie.
- McSteamy! Addison! Addison.

- Children shouldn't play with dead things? LOVE.
- The PORN. AWKWARD!
- Dean. Dean walking away from Sam. Dean. And Sam. Sammy. Who insists they should talk.
- And when Dean does talk? There is nothing to say. Oh, Christ. Oh, I love them.
- So what if the MotW plot wasn't that good. It's only about mirroring their angst and that was brilliantly done. Because Jensen just acts that well. Seriously. That guy blows me away week after week.

- The fact that it took me ten seconds to realise that yes, I had seen this week's Lost? Not a good sign.
- Blah blah blah. But Ian was oh so amazingly pretty! Honestly.
- Is he called - Paolo? Whatever. Hot!Carl from Love Actually? I'll buy that he was here from the start just because, yeah. Hot.
- The dream sequence I heart. It was so beautiful. I want to icon the hell out of it.
- That CG polar bear was utterly unfrightening.
- Ian was so pretty.

- Yeah, I'm glad they're finally addressing Veronica's trust and respect-of-privacy issues. Because yeah, totally.
- The Dean has not convinced me yet.
- Piz! But where is Mac.
- The Reaper was prettier when she was a Reaper. I liked the jock, though.

- I love Guy's arrogance. And the few times when he has a small smile? YEAH.
- I love his genuine-seeming anger at learning that more people have been killed and that that guy has been unable to stop it. Richard brings him such depth. Seriously.
- When they turn against Robin? BRILLIANT SCENE. I like how they're pushing Robin's flaws. He does want to be loved so badly.
- It's totally going to be that "good man" Marian keeps talking to, isn't it. How original.
- Marian sleeps naked? Did they sleep naked back then?
- Ha! He's so been in bed with the Sheriff. Heh.
- The Wat!wannabe and Robin are totally orgasmic partners.
- Bringing food means no homicidal tendancies? Oookay. If this works, I take back what I said about this being a better episode.
- ...they made a "I shot the sheriff - deputee" joke? *iz ded*
- Aaaand Robin is loved again. Still, I maintain it. Better episode than before. I like that Wannabe!Wat understands Robin better than Marian. It makes sense. Anyway. There might be some hope left for this show.

- I'd only seen S2, when I was in the UK. God I love this show. It was great, seeing how they all got together. And how Danny sort of grafted himself onto them all.
- Yeah, Danny. Danny Danny Danny. I heart Marc Warren.
- I'm also a big fan of the Danny/Mickey/Stacey triangle. And Jaime Murray's so wonderfully beautiful.
- I love Ash. I don't know why, I just do. Probably 'cause he's the geeky one, sort of? I don't know. But. Love.

- The Perfume: oh, god. Amazing. Absolutely amazing. The whole cast is perfect, and that kid? Yeah. Just, yeah. I love this movie so bad.
- Children of Men: Chewie and Charlie need to make out. Apart from that, it was an excellent sci-fi movie but, for some reason, didn't make me go "WOW" over it. It puzzles me a little, that it didn't. But it was quite good, honestly. Brilliant cast, great script, and the directing was spot-on. Special mention goes to the shoe thing. But really, all of it was excellent. Just not wow-making. Yes, this is one of those reviews that make no sense to anybody but me, why?

Oh Guy. Sigh. How I must iconify your sneering hotness.

*nods* I have caved in and screencapped this episode. I couldn't not! I will iconify his hotness. So you did give it a go! I saw your entry about it go by but it was before I'd seen it and so didn't read it.

And *gasps!* Today's Torchwood Day!

The foolish BBC don't have an online copy of the 'leaning against a tree' picture from the Radio Times.

I mocked, but gently. There were some interesting bits and I liked a lot of the actors. Shame about Keith Allen, though :D

Torchwood! Jack! Sexaliens! Soon, after 'Brideshead Revisited', which always cracks me up as they seem to have adapted evry single word of the book. It's eleven hours long!

Tsk. Honestly, Beeb. You're just doing everything wrong with that show, aren't you? Starting with calling it Robin Hood instead of Guy of Guisborne.

I just IMDbed the guy and riiiight! It is a shame. He can be good.

Ha! I've never seen Brideshead Revisited. Nor read. But god, an eleven hour long adaptation? Way to go. *pines for Torchwood*

Robin is clearly not the star of his own show. They need to have an all-Guy episode, where we find out his Secret Pain where he has to stab people because of the Angst, which he works out through frequesnt dips in the lake.

The book of 'Brideshead Revisited' is only about 300 pages long, so the adaptation is ridiculously long by modern standards. It's worth it to watch Jeremy Irons and Anthony Andrews loll about homoerotically on the grass.

Because Jensen just acts that well. Seriously. That guy blows me away week after week.

Yes! If I'd only ever seen his Dark Angel and Smallville stuff, I never would've expected him to be this awesome actor who can bring the angst like... uh, someone who's really angsty that I can't think of right now.

Date: 2006-10-22 05:53 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] fan-elune.livejournal.com
Heh! Precisely. Well, I haven't seen much of his Smallville stuff because I have that little patience with Smallville that Glover, Rosenbaum and Ackles combined were not enough for me to tune in, but. Dark Angel, yes, and I loved him already, but it has nothing to do with the acting heights he's reaching in SPN. He's got this intense quality to him that he can make so much pass through his gaze. And a purse of his lips is enough to explain so much. Oh, Jensen.

No, its not your imagination - Robin Hood was better this week! Less cocky because he was actually under pressure helped - still not entirely good. They ruined it for me when they did the slow mo of Robin and the outlaws walking - they are not the Magnificent Seven!! Richard is very hot and was less bored - still some dodgy dialogue, but hope is still there.

It did help, didn't it. I wanna see more of Robin in trouble. Things can't be that easy, seriously. I was very disappointed by the scene where Guy offed the former master of arms, personally. That could have been so much better. And I'm only forgiving them the slo mo because they gave us the whole village angry at Robin scene. Where, for once, their fancy editing and directing worked with the scene, I felt.

I've been so busy with school and work and too lazy to turn on the TV. I really need to start watching Lost and Grey's Anatomy again. Although I don't think I'll ever be able to look at Burke the same way again.

Stopping enjoying Burke-the-character because of Washington would be like not enjoying Jayne anymore because Adam's a die-hard Republican in some of the worst ways. Burke's Burke, and I'll stick by that.

You're really not missing out on much Lost-wise, though.

I never really liked Burke anyway. Izzie and George are by far my favorite characters. <3

From: [identity profile] fan-elune.livejournal.com
Ah, no, see, Cristina and Burke were my favorites until Denny came along. And then Addison came first. But the point is? I heart them. I liked George best before. Izzie I just. Love so much, too. And god, Bailey. And Alex keeps being amazing and exactly what I was hoping he would be since the first scene we saw him in.

Yeah, so pretty much the only characters I don't like by now are Meredith and Derek.

Date: 2006-10-24 02:45 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] thevelvetsun.livejournal.com
Hehe. I still like Derek. He's not my favorite by far, but he's okay. I can't stand Meredith. I don't think I could tell you one thing I like about her. She's just so whiny and self-absorbed. Ugh.

Date: 2006-10-24 03:03 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] fan-elune.livejournal.com
I used to really, really like Derek. By now I just want the two of them to get off of this show. They can have New York, let Addison keep Seattle, kthxbye.

I completely blame Meredith. ;)

Oh, god yes. Yesyesyes. Well, he doesn't make me cry, that's reserved for DENNY oh god Denny. But he pulls at my heartstrings so much.

And Addison and Mark are love. Especially Addison.

Yes, I used the word better, and not less bad.

Really? "Better" and not "less bad"? That's somewhat heartening, because honestly, I was thisclose to just chucking RH and re-watching N&S over and over...okay, I do that already but I would have done moreso, especially on Saturday nights around the time my RH torrent would have completed dling. ;)

I haven't watched RH 1x03 yet, and frankly, I'd forgotten all about it--too much excitement and distraction thanks to The Prestige this weekend. Plus, Torchwood has premiered so, ahem, SQUEE!!! Can't wait to watch that.

AND you've seen The Perfume??!!! ::is jealous::

My use of the word 'better' might have been almost entirely due to Richard's utter hotness in that latest episode. But I really do think that it was less bad. Genuinely so. I have hope in this series again, now, which I had well and truly lost after the pilot. If they keep improving like that...

Besides, it gives us Richard in leather. If only for that.

Have you seen Torchwood yet? OH GOD OH GOD OH GOD ahem. And yes, see, Perfume's been out here in a few weeks, but we've got some waiting to do yet before the Prestige. Woe!

Just finished watching both episodes of Torchwood. Highly entertaining. It's lived up to my expectations so far--more than Robin Hood ever did. I really like it. I can't say that I love it, at least not yet. I'm certainly willing to give it time. If the episodes stay at this level, great. If they get better, fantastic! I'm just happy there's another decent genre programme out there--TV-land is seriously lacking in genre programming these days.

With Doctor Who, I was just jazzed to see Christopher Eccleston play the Doctor. It wasn't until episode 6, Dalek, that I fell completely in love with the show and there was no turning back. I'm optimistic the same will happen with Torchwood. We shall see.

And I didn't think Gwen was that bad (I read your other post). I quite liked her. :P At least she wears less makeup than Maid Marian.

So much that I loved in it, so much that I didn't as well. I'm not in love with the show yet, but it's got the potential. Now the question is, will it realise said potential?

I also got hooked with Dalek, but that's possibly because I'd missed everything but Aliens in London before that.

I refuse to like any female character just because she's better than Marian. Because let's face it, that would make me like a lot of mediocre female characters. Anyway, Gwen! Gwen... yeah, I often have issues with lead female parts. Which is part of why I loved RTD for making me love Rose, against all my expectations, in S1. (And then hated him a little for making me dislike her in S2.)
