[5] male characters

It took me a while, but here they are. My future husbands. I'm usually more invested in female character, so I thought finding five for this would be hard. I was wrong. I forgot how the TV (and film for that matter) business is still very male-dominated (you should all read up on the Bechdel test, it's pretty sick). Though, it was actually harder to choose for this than for the females, because there's so many more to choose from, and too few that I'm really invested in.


Mal Reynolds (Firefly, portrayed by Nathan Fillion)
Sometimes I feel like calling myself Mal, and that's because Mal from Firefly is cool. I like Nathan Fillion in Castle as well, but Firefly is just something else.

Jim Moriarty (Sherlock, portrayed by Andrew Scott)
I debated myself on whether I wanted to pick Sherlock or Moriarty for this. Moriarty won 'cause he's better looking. 'S gonna be sad if he's really dead and doesn't return for series 3.


Dale Cooper (Twin Peaks, portrayed by Kyle MacLachlan)
I said this before, but I was so in love with Agent Cooper the first time I watched Twin Peaks. Isn't he just dreamy? Still practically my definition of the perfect man.


Fox Mulder (X-Files, portrayed by David Duchovny)
I don't even know what to say. It's Mulder, I think it speaks for itself.

The Doctor ((new) Doctor Who, portrayed by Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant and Matt Smith)
I contemplated picking only one of the Doctors, but then I thought 'why?' I think they're all pretty great in their own way. Can't speak for the Doctors from old DW, though, because I have yet to watch it (there's just SO many seasons!).
 
Next up is five OTP's. Now that's gonna be tricky to pick out. I am the WORST shipper.

Tardis rave lol / Green screen


We were learning how to use and light a green screen at school, and I made them green screen me into the Tardis, because why not? So here's Kristoffer, Malvina and I having a mini Tardis rave. We didn't have any music when filming this, if you're wondering why the "dancing" is exceptionally awkward. And that I'm wearing my DW tee is a coincidence, I didn't know this was gonna happen when I got dressed today. Rather, I was inspired to do it by the fact that I was wearing it.

Last Lunch

 
Why does my babies have to leave me? 30 Rock is my absolute fav comedy show, and that says a lot because I'm really picky with comedy. Seven seasons and now it's over. It's not as bad as with Fringe, I haven't followed 30 Rock for the entire seven years. But nonetheless, it's horrible that it's over. Tina Fey is God.

Pitch Perfect

 
I love this movie more than puppies and seafood.

[5] female characters

I had/have huge girl-crushes on all of these characters. I girl-crush quite easily and always take it to a super awkward level. Mostly on, but not limited to, older (than me) female characters. I don't even want to know what that says about me. Anyway, here they are:


Alex Drake (Ashes to Ashes, portrayed by Keeley Hawes)
I've seen her irl! Or rather, the actress that plays her. When Cicci and I were in London we went to National Theatre and saw Rocket to the Moon were she played one of the leading roles. I want to say it was crazy, but it really wasn't, it was just me who was.


Dana Scully (X-Files, portrayed by Gillian Anderson)
My favourite ginger in the whole wide world. Probably my biggest girl-chrush to date, since it keeps resurfacing every time I rewatch X-Files.


Kate Beckett (Castle, portrayed by Stana Katic)
Two words for you: HAIR PORN.


Olivia Dunham (Fringe, portrayed by Anna Torv)
My baby. Twice actually, because Alt-Livia is my baby too. There's no version of Olivia that I don't love. Also quite a lot of hair porn going on for her.

Regina Mills aka the Evil Queen (Once Upon a Time, portrayed by Lana Parrilla)
aka the only reason to watch OUaT. I know I said this before, but I can't stress it enough. To watch Lana, in the costumes and hair and everything in this show is heaven, but every second she's not on is hell. Such a shame, it could have been so great.
 
 
Stay tuned for 5 male characters! ~

An Enemy of Fate

 
So beautiful. There's not really anything I can say that will make you understand what it felt like, if you haven't felt it too. And if that's the case it doesn't really need explaining, does it? TV-shows to me are sort of what music can be to others, it's an escape path. This is the first show that I've followed since season 1 to go of air like this. Coming to think about it, it's actually the only one I have ever followed since it started airing (always late to the party me, otherwise). Five lovely seasons, five years of my life, and now never again. It's a silly thing really, to be so upset about this, but nevertheless, I am. Goodbye, Fringe, I'm gonna miss you so much.

[10] tv shows

Meet my lovers. Originally the challenge was just to pick out five TV-shows, but I changed it to ten, because five was far to few. I figured ten would be more than enough. I was wrong. I had to kill some of my darlings for this, like Rizzoli and Isles, 30 Rock and Wire in the Blood. But this is a neat mix of my all time favourites, current obsessions and just some sheer epicness that would have been a crime to leave out. Hope you enjoy. All of these are shows you NEED to watch. In alphabetical order:
 

The Addams Family (1964-1966)
If you haven't seen this, then you're not a true Addams Family fan. This is the real shit. It's actually very different from the films from 1991 and 1993, it's more fun and comedy, and morbid in a less gory way. Very quality for being almost 50 years old.



Ashes to Ashes (2008-2010)
Ashes is a sequel to Life on Mars, from 2006. You should probably watch that before Ashes, or you will be seriously confused. As I'm sure I've told you before, I watched it the other way around, but it only worked because I already knew what happened in LoM, because my dear BFF Sanna told me. When Ashes was still on air in 2010, it was much like it is with Once now, it was the ONLY thing I talked about. I have a very obsessive personality when it comes to things like this, in case you haven't noticed. Anyway, if you're gonna watch this and LoM, make sure it's the British version, and not the American, because that would be the wrong version. Very wrong.



Castle (2009- )
I've been a sucker for crime shows since always. I got stuck on Castle because it has this mystery touch to most of the crimes, which makes it a bit more exciting. It's also a fangirl's dream, since not shipping Castle and Beckett is close to impossible. And just look at Stana Katic's face. How is she even real? And if you search hair porn on Urban Dictionary, Stana Katic's hair is the first suggestion. Just sayin'.



Doctor Who (2005- )
I don't even know what to say. This show has everything I could dream of. Aliens, costume drama, crime, magic (sort of) and people in suits. What more can a girl ask for?



Firefly (2002-2003)
I only watched Firefly for the first time late last spring, and it took a while before I got caught in it, but since then I've rewatched it three times. Just, you know, space, and grungy outfits, crime and... space. I'm just gonna go ahead and state the obvious: It shouldn't have been cancelled after just once season. It was a really bad move, Fox!



Fringe (2008-2013)
Oh, my darling darling Fringe. You will always have a special place in my heart. You set the bar so high for new TV-shows, and I think there is yet to come one as great as you. Anna Torv is a godess in so many ways. I still refuse to accept that it has in fact ended now. I am watching the final episodes later tonight, and are therefore avoiding tumblr and twitter right now. I don't know how to handle this in any other way than denial.



Once Upon a Time (2011- )
The show I LOVE to HATE. I know I said in the beginning of this post that these are all TV-show that you need to watch. I meant, except for this one. It's the best tv-show idea executed in the worst possible way. If you have yet not sold your soul to Once, then DON'T DO IT. It's really pretty awful. And just when you think that it can't get any worse, it does. The only thing that makes it worthwhile is Lana Parrilla as Regina aka Snow White's Evil Queen. She is absolutely amazing and must have been born for this role. If she is ever killed off or leaves the show for whatever reason, I will stop watching. I don't even care about what happens afterwards. Actually I don't even care about what happens in the show now, I just want to watch Lana.



Sherlock (2010- )
So few episodes, so much quality. And we're probably not even half through the wait for the next series. I will never forget when s02e03 ended, and the god-awful cliff hanger. We just want to know what happened!



Twin Peaks (1990-1991)
This show ended with the worst cliff hanger ever, and we will never know what happened. It's the worst. I'm actually planning on rewatching this now, because I haven't seen it in ages. I was SO in love with Agent Cooper the last time around. He's just... ah. And Audrey Horne is pretty badass. I also used to know the whole Fire Walk with Me poem/whatever-it-was by heart. Need to relearn it.


X-Files (1993-2002)
I love this show so much I have actually permanently marked my body with one of it's catch phrases. Most of you probably know that on the inside of my left forearm it says "I WANT TO BELIEVE". If that's not commitment then I don't know what is. Scully is my ever ongoing girl crush, but I'm actually a lot more like Mulder. Because I really do want to believe. I take much pride in having seen every single episode, except for one, but it was from season 9, so it's okay.
 
 
 
There you go. See you soon for 5 female characters. I don't even know how I'm supposed to pick out only five?

Because

 
I am often asked (as much by myself as by others) why I watch Once Upon a Time since I dislike it so very much. Hate is a very strong which I often use when talking about this show, it's characters, writing or green screening. Sorry I'm not sorry.
 
But Regina, sweet sweet awesome badass evil queen Regina. The only reason I need. Lana Parrilla is the only one who seems to be able to act through that shitty script of theirs.

Spontaneous Human Combustion

 
I tried to take a picture where I didn't look retarded or like I was making out with a DVD-box, but that turned out an epic fail, so I ended up covering my face, per usual.
 
I've been following Fringe since it was just a baby, and it's so sad that it's growing up and leaving home now. I'm gonna miss it so much. I'm still in denial, though, don't think anything else. But I have caught up with season 5 now, so I'm ready next week when my baby Alt-Liv comes back. I also rewatched my fav ep with her, Making Angels from season 4, it's just so cute. Apart from the fact that people get murderd and bleed from their eyes in it, that's not excatly cute.
 
If you don't watch Fringe then you're an idiot and should start doing so straight away, so you don't have to be an idiot.
 
Gonna rewatch some season 1 now. I remember season 1, it was good times. Planes and busses full of dead people, brains that boil or melt, killer butterflies and spontaneous human combustion. And ZFT, you guys! I don't even remember what that was, it feels like so long ago! Oh dear, it's like it's a piece of my life that is dying! FRINGE PLEASE DON'T END EVERYTHING IS FORGIVEN.
 
Sorry, I'm gonna stop now.

Resist

 
I learned today that my baby Alt-Livia is coming back on Fringe. I cried actual tears. I was sure we were never going to see her again, but now we are and I am so fucking excited, guys, you have no idea. So now I'm catching up, because I've been neglectiong this show for month, in denial of it's impending end. It just sucks when they know it's the last season, so they have to tie all the shit together, and it always turns out kinda lame. I mean, look at X-Files, dafuq was that? And it's a bit the same with 30 Rock, right now, but since that's comedy with not THAT much plot, it's not as bad.
 
Is it just me or is Olivia talking weirdly? I know Anna's Australian and has an accent irl, and I keep hearing it on Olivia. Maybe I just imagining, since the only Fringe I've watched since like early November, is "behind the scenes"-clips, where she does speak Australian... But NEVER MIND.
 
Thinking of getting myself a Fringe t-shirt at some point. Since it's great and ending and I'm gonna miss it so much and so on and so on. Gonna continue watching now, I have four more episodes until I'm up to date.

Being a woman is the worst!

 
Oh sweet sweet 30 Rock, I'm gonna miss you so much when you're gone.

The Torment of Others

 
 
Rewatching Wire in the Blood for at least the third time at the moment. I think this show has sort of shaped me as a person. British crime dramas have always been my go-to-shows. Always have and always will love it. And this was my first that really stuck with me. I was (am) very emotionally attached, and when they switched one of the main characters Carol Jordan (Hermione Norris) for Alex Fielding(Simone Lahbib) in series 4, that came on when I was fifteen or sixteen, I remember how all hell broke loose. Now find myself liking Alex more, and am only watching the series with her. Don't know why I'm telling you this, it was not where I was going. It just keeps being the one thing that always comes up when I talk about this show, you know. How they switched the main character in the middle of it. Just like that.
 
Anywa-hay, I realised I was probably about fourteen when I started watching this. It's kinda brutal for a fourteen year old. And I think it might be the basis of my fascination of serial killers and psycho/sociopathy.
 
Gonna stop bothering you and contine watching now. Sweet dreams.

Colors of the Wind

Nostalgia

 
Beauty and the Beast yesterday, today Aladdin and tomorrow Pochontas. Cried 1/3 so far, lets see if I keep the good work up!

Transilience Thought Unifier Model-11

 
I cried three times. It's just all so sad and I don't want this to be the last season. What will my life be without Fringe? Will I ever get so see Alt-Livia again? And why in the world would they play my ultimate cry song (Only You) at the end of the episode? I mean, of all songs in the world, it had to be that one? I totally broke down. This is just to much. I don't want this beautiful show to ever end.

After the Storm

 
After the Storm is actually the name of the season 5 premiere episode. I'm not just refering to this life altering event as a storm because I'm so fabulously clever. But to the point: I'm gonna share my thoughts on the episode that I have been waiting four months (is it four months? I think so) for with you guys.
 
*SPOILER ALERT* Might not want to continue reading if you haven't seen it. Not revealing any massive plot twists, but still, leaving this warning here. Don't want to ruin things for anyone.
 
I was kicking and screaming all through it, naturally, and if you're a Castle fan you understand why, because, well, you just do. I totally freaked out over the casting of the Senator. He was played by Jack Coleman who plays Noah Bennet in Heroes. It was such a mindfuck since, as you might remember, I watched most of Heroes just this summer, and I kinda like him there, but I think he's a bit scary.
 
I do wish there would have been more romantic interaction between Castle and Beckett. I mean come on guys?! We wait for this the whole summer and all we really get is the "the morning after" scene, and they don't even kiss in it? And you leak it a few days before so we already know it's gonna be in there, and then that is basically IT? That's just not fair! We wanna see them make out!
 
I liked that they wrapped up the whole mess that was left by the end of season 4 in this episode, and cleared up and revealed things, giving the new season a chance of a almost-brand-new start. Although, it kind of ended up leaving the plot of the episode a bit lame. Not bad, but certainly not the best in any way. One thing that I absolutely adore about Castle, and what I think makes it one of the best shows on TV right now, is the great plots. You know, the crimes they investigate, and all that. It's what's got me hooked. And when an episode lacks a bit in that area, it leaves me feeling sort of empty afterwards. It was a little like that in this episode. But then again, kudos to the writers for a nice wrapping up of the season finale!
 
AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST: Stana and Nathan, I love you. You are amazing in every way. I just wanna watch Stana's beautiful quirky face for the rest of my life. I'm not even joking.
 
And with that I bid you good night. Sleep tight people, I hope I will, dreaming of next weeks episode.

JC / Castle

 
I know there's a lot of these going on here right now, but I just love them so much. I literally wear my 8th Street EVERY DAY. I took this for my facebook and figured I might as well post it here too.
 
Btw, Castle comes back tonight (American time, so tomorrow for me)! I am SO BEYOND PSYCHED about it. Ask anyone of my friends, I've been talking about this day for weeks. I've got tomorrow all planned out just around watching this one episode. It's gonna be so awesome, and I'm gonna be so awkward sitting by myself screaming at it!
 
And then there's Fringe, Once Upon a Time and New Girl also starting this week. Feels almost like life is starting for real again.

the Avengers

 
So, I finally saw the Avengers last night. I've been dying to for ages, but quite frankly, I couldn't afford to to to the movies when it was on. But NOW, at last I've seen it. It was pretty cool. No, it was very cool. The plot was kinda predictable at times (but way better than expected), but that happens way to easily in action movies like this one. Especially in something as huge as this. I mean, it must be super hard to get any thunder whatsoever left for the story with all of these wicked awesome characters. Iron Man is my fav. After that I basically like everyone (including Loki), apart from finding Thor and Captain America a bit lame.

xx

Once upon a time

 
I've been watching Once Upon a Time. I only have to episodes left, but to be honest I don't like it very much. It's kinda lame, in an annoying way, because it could have been so good. The only things I like is the Evil Queen/Regina, Rumplestiltskin/Mr Gold, the costumes and when they rip hearts out of people. But I'll probably end up watching season 2 as well, when it comes, because it kinda sucks you in, in all it's lameness.

I don't even know

 
Because Kate is being cute and weirdsy.
