Tonight was obviously ROCK STAR night...  
Good lord, I was bombarded by AWFUL rock star wannabes on both of my shows tonight. What up with that, Quirky Concept Procedurals? The writers obviously got together and decided to share their plots.

Anyway, Life = WIN! WIN WIN WIN!!!! It totally had a season one feel and was absolutely delightful from start to finish.

2. Lots of partnery goodness in this one. Crews and Reese being awesome and investigating believably kooky people. THIS IS WHAT I LOVE!
3. Doc. DOC! Hee, I love how he came up with this nickname, and I REALLY loved him and Tidwell discussing the awesomeness of it and wishing it was their nickname.
4. CHARLIE STARING INTENTLY AT ROMAN ON THE CONSPIRACY WALL! MANLUST SUBTEXT, MY FRIENDS! Not really, but you know what? I am going to pretend it was and enjoy myself in my very lonely Charlie/Roman shipping corner.
5. TED! AND CHARLIE'S FATHER! OH GOD, THAT SCENE WAS HILARIOUS! Please to be bringing me more Ted & Charlie Sr.
6. Al was awesome, and he totally had me fooled. Do you know how long it has been since a mystery on this show surprised me? Well... technically, I was suspecting him from the moment we saw him, but it wasn't so terribly OBVIOUS like it's been in just about every single episode of season 2. But I felt like I figured it out WITH Charlie and Dani rather than long before them. This I love.
7. The Tidwell/Reese was sweet in this ep, but... I don't know. I'd prefer their romance to happen off screen myself. At least we're not bombarded with it, but they were pushing it a little hard in this ep. But I don't hate them like most of fandom, just... I miss when Dani was all lonely and screwed up, you know?
8. Damian was just all around adorable in this ep, and he did his dorky Charlie smile that I love so much.
9. I adored the music in this ep, mostly because I actually knew the songs. I think that's the first time ever that I actually knew a song played on Life. And, come on, an episode about cover bands just wouldn't be right without a Journey song or two, right? BUT... the ep was obviously trying to parody KISS with that makeup, and yet I heard no KISS songs. I might have missed it though.
10. CHARLIE'S OLD CAR! OMG!!! So, this scene was completely implausible, but I DON'T CARE! IT WAS ADORABLE! AND IT CONTAINED CONTINUITY FROM SEASON 1! IT WAS EVEN THE SAME ACTRESS! And I so cannot wait to see Charlie driving around in a yellow car with flowers on it.

In conclusion, Life totally rocked my socks tonight and once again restored my faith. I wish it was consistently this awesome, because I swear one week I say it's gone down the toilet and the very next week I say it's restored back to its previous awesomeness, and then I go back to thinking it's slipping, and then I go back to thinking it's awesome. I don't know. I seem to be doing that with a lot of my shows this season.

Life on Mars was fairly entertaining, but not nearly as good as last week. There was barely any Sam/Gene interaction. In fact, there was barely any Gene at all. Not cool, show, not cool. But it was still entertaining. And I continue to love the development of Gene's relationship with his daughter, even though they shared absolutely no scenes together tonight, but still. The fact that he bought her a pen for her high school graduation with the initials MNH when her name is Maria Alice Hunt was oddly endearing to me, and SHE KEPT THE PEN! She's like 30-something and she still carries around the pen. Or... loses it while having sexy times with Sam, but... SHE KEPT THE PEN! Obviously she loves her father immensely and doesn't mean any of the bile that she spouts about him, and you can even feel her love for him as she talks about him even though she's saying that she hates him. Seriously. Her sexy times with Sam are OBVIOUSLY a ploy to get at her father. Also, Maria/Ray is 20,000 times better than Maria/Sam, but I'm pretty sure that will only ever happen in my head.


This clip will never cease to make me giggle:

Oh, Anthony Head, how I love you for being just as clumsy as me. Except I do stuff like that SO OFTEN that I just go on without even reacting to it and hope that I trick people into thinking that it never happened.

Speaking of clumsiness, when I was eating my salad today I didn't notice that the plate was slowly edging off of the desk because I was busy watching something on my computer, and I went to stab some lettuce and the entire plate spewed all over my shirt. And it was a very dairyish dressing. FAIL. The sad part is that that was the last of the already made salad, so I very carefully peeled off of my shirt what I could and ate it. *sigh*

That was the same actress with the car, just different hair. But, definitely the same girl.

I didn't like this ep. :( But, I agree about the excitement about the old car being back, even under the flowers.

And, Ted!

Oh man, HOW COULD YOU NOT LIKE THIS EPISODE? IT WAS MAGNIFICENT! Well, maybe magnificent is too strong a word. It was... REALLY, REALLY GOOD!
15lbpurebunny15lbpurebunny on February 12th, 2009 08:04 pm (UTC)
I did like parts of it. Actually, the parts I liked, I liked a LOT. But, the parts I didn't....just really made me feel sad.

Aww. :( Here have an oldie but goodie:

Bah, I was trying to find the Damian with Chick-Fil-A balls, but my photobucket is so filled with Anthony Head now that I cannot find any of my old stuff. *sigh* I really should have organized my pics better. 58 pages of uncategorized photos is TOO MANY.
15lbpurebunny15lbpurebunny on February 12th, 2009 11:08 pm (UTC)
Awww, that was a classic! Chick Fil A Balls! Let's have a moment for Damian's deep fried man tackle.

I know, I recognize this phrase you use, but have lost the connection. Has the deep fried man tackle been canonically mentioned or was it just a comm phrase favorite?

15lbpurebunny15lbpurebunny on February 13th, 2009 02:44 am (UTC)
Actually, that was the first time I mentioned that, strangely! Firthgal made me a special photoshopped pic of Damian Lewis with Chick Fil A chicken nuggets in his lap last summer. It was hysterical.

And I'm *certain* the rabbit was a homage to MOI.

Right, RIGHT?

It's gotta be! I mean, considering the numbers, they know where to hear feedback from the small fandom, and it's gotta be from The Bunny.

And AH! THAT photoshop was from where I had heard of it. Bobbing for chicken nuggets that way would be the most amazing way to spend V-Day, amirite?
15lbpurebunny15lbpurebunny on February 15th, 2009 03:25 pm (UTC)
Bobbing for nuggets, indeed! Hahahha! Now THAT'S a pastime!

YAY FOR THIS POST! I'm so glad you love this episode of Life, mainly because I enjoyed it so clumped and rushed together, the season 1 and 2, that I couldn't discern between "quality" as much as probably other tenured Lifers could. But this episode was pulling us back into the proverbial mist of awesome that this show has all around it. But oh dear, I hated seeing Anthony Head hurting his namesake head. ;-;

I had a dream, all because of you and your headcaseness, that had Anthony Head in it being kinda evil bad naughty lolita-esque sexy in it and I woke up going "holymolywtfcrackers" o.o

WHY CAN'T I HAVE A DREAM LIKE THAT? Hee, I love that my posts are shaping your dreams. That happened to someone else on my f-list, too.

If you wanna hear it, I can type it out for you. It's sooooo weird but would make great weird fanfiction prolly. XD

Hello! You probably don't know me, but the ASH vid is on my YT [yea, I know the names are different] Anyway, thought you might want to know the blooper came from this vid (at the end - better quality too [in hq], and that ASH is also in this vid (~1.50-2.50).
Uther Pendragon's Loyal Wench: uther merlinfirthgal on February 13th, 2009 03:44 am (UTC)
Ooo, thanks for those! Hee, I loved his lewd laugh in the second one. Also, I totally know you from the Uther/Merlin comm. I think.
simply_numpty on February 13th, 2009 04:07 am (UTC)
There are more - well, I only just noticed them - window licking fun in HQ [0.50-1.15], or just on its own. :D

Yes, I set up utherxtheboys and mod it. sometimes. it's small, people are good with the tags and nice to each other, which makes it easy :D

THE WINDOW LICKING! Oh god, that was even better than the one from the trailer.
