True Blood comes first. Oh, my god, how I love this show. My instinct is to say if it weren't for the vampire politics I wouldn't be watching it, but even that is wrong. Because there is also Lafayette (BOOYAH), Jason, Andy, Terry, Hoyt, and oh dear lord Michell Forbes Maryann.

Some found the Maryann storyline took too much time. I think I am too fond of Michelle Forbes to have an unbiased opinion, because watching her act in every single scene she had was such a pleasure I would never, ever say so, and I will miss her. Besides, TV Without Pity's Jacob made that storyline even more interesting by his fascinating take on it. Go read his recaps. Seriously.

Lafayette is quite simply DA BOMB. Honestly. I adore him through and through, and my only disappointment is that unless he gets over his trauma too quickly, Pam and he will never snark at each other as they would have been bound to do otherwise.

Jason and Andy were the best idea of a team, ever. The very end of the season has me both scared and thrilled at what might be going on next. Terry I've always loved and now that he's no longer black-eyed, I'm hoping to get him back alright.

Hoyt. Hoyt and Jessica. The season finale broke my heart because they are PERFECT. This is a side of vampire/human relationship we'd never seen. The first-time-iness of them. The perfect metaphor for everybody's first time. Again, I applaud Jacob for what he has written about them. GO READ THEM RECAPS.

And the vampires, oh the vampires. I wouldn't know where to start. Godric, Nan, Sophie Anne, Eric, Pam. (So not Bill.) Sophie Anne and Eric were so many layers of things we could not know about, things we guessed, and making her only 400 was another one of Alan Ball's strokes of genius. I will not gush about Godric more than I already have. I want flashbacks, is all I'm sayin'. I want to know how and why they parted ways. And I want more Pam time. And Eric, the way they developed him this season? GORGEOUS. And I don't mean the naked scene, although that too.

Not until next summer. Long fucking wait.

Sons of Anarchy is amazing biker love. And Gemma is completely blowing my brains out. And what they did to her. And the way she's reacting. And getting Adam Arkin to play that part. And and and and. I am in love with this show so fucking hard.

Supernatural... Castiel is not there enough, but his few scenes make me squee like insanity. There are no words for how much I love his character and I don't think they could have things between him and Dean any slashier without having Chuck write about it so canon fangirls can write Castiel/Dean fic.

I LOVE Chuck, for the record.

Having steered clear of spoilers and seen the season trailer, I was bloody well hoping Titus Welliver would be Lucifer. It's only because he's Mark Pellegrino that I am not disappointed. I want more Jacob on Lost. It helps that Titus is playing one of the Four Horsemen, because a few of you know how obsessed I am with those brothers. I cannot wait to meet the other three, and really do wonder how Death will fit in with the Reapers we already know. Will s/he have them as an army at his/her command?

And Sam is walking away. I should be feeling more OMGWTFBBQ except I've been feeling for Dean and Dean alone for too long. And BOBBY oh god Bobby. Also, do we get another John cameo before the show's over? PRETTY PLEASE. Hell, if Grey's Anatomy managed to bring JDM back, so should SPN, damnit. And to better effect plz.

The Wire? I can't believe I've waited this long. I've just started watching 2x10, and I have to say I was rather worried because I didn't find S2 as sucky as most people seem to have (probably very much on account of Chris Bauer, but I'll come back to that), but that episode opening's just made me go 'what?' Because they just montage-skipped over however long, and seeing every damn moment of the case in S1 was one of the big things I loved.

Omar being another one of these big things. Duh.

And Lester. And the evolution of Prez's character.

But yes, Chris Bauer. Good thing I'd caught him in Numb3rs a little while before starting S2, where he played a freaking brilliant guy which had me go OH MY GOD ANDY BELLEFLEUR LOOKING SMART. So that by the time I started S2 I was well prepared for him not to be the dumbwit I love so much.

And Daniels and Kima.

And next season Aiden Gillen is showing up. I CANNOT WAIT and I don't even know if he's playing a scumbag or a mostly alright politician and I DON'T WANNA KNOW YOU GUYS.

All I know's I hope he meets Omar some day. Without being exactly hopeful either, but if they don't meet I might just wind up writing it.

OH AND IDRIS ELBA. Who I will forever and ever love for Ultraviolet. Which I need to watch again when I'm done with The Wire.

I heart this show so hard.

I've watched the first two eps of S3 and oh dear lord. He's as good at publicity as Stuart, isn't he. And I don't know if it's Aidan that will always give me that vibe or just that I can't let go of Stuart, but he makes my gaydar go wonkers all the same. I adore the way he acts, and he seems so ruthless. Oh, I love him already, Di!

The Wire! Watching it is the worst and best thing to happen to you because it's so amazing that nothing else will ever be as good. TRUE STORY.

You know, I wouldn't say I think S2 is sucky. I mean, it's the Wire. It can't be sucky. For me, I just didn't care about the characters much, and I didn't find them nearly as sympathetic as the gangsters and police. Some part of me also felt like it's a story that has been told a lot and that working class white men are the types of characters that are always getting their stories told, so I didn't feel like I was getting this insightful view into a world that I knew next to nothing about. I know that the focus needs to stay in Baltimore, but I think I would've liked that season more if they'd made actual characters out of the sex slaves? Not sure if that would've been realistic to the plot though, or the focus on the docks and people who are true Baltimore denizens rather than just forced visitors.

In conclusion: OMAR. And you will love Aiden Gillen!

...can I still your icon. Plz. *grabbygrabbyhands*

I cared about the characters, mostly because of the brilliant performances. Mostly about Frank and Zig. Zig damn near broke my heart towards the end. And YES on if they'd given a little flesh to the sex slaves, but at the same time it would've been counterproductive to their point, I feel. I mean, McNulty spends how many episodes trying to give a name to one of them. And Bea was there for that reason, too, because she remembers they're human beings and not just red Jane Does on the homicide board.

Aidan is magnificent, but then again he always is. Omar is made of so much love. The beginning of S3 has me HELL YEAH over him being. Well. He's BACK, baby, you know?

I was searching for SOA icons when I stumbled across your journal and not only are you a SOA fan but you watch The Wire, my favorite television show of all time. Are you going to watch the third season after this? The third is definitely my favorite - the best television ever created. Sorry for this random comment from a complete stranger. I just get so excited any time I see someone discover and fall in love with The Wire.
