TV ships meme

Hopping on the bandwagon…

1. Post a list of 10 TV shows you watch/ed (current or cancelled).
2. Have your friends list guess your favorite pairing from each show.
3. When guessed, bold the line & write a sentence about why you like that pairing.
4. Post in your own livejournal blog.

This should be pretty easy, right? Note that I only picked 1 pairing per show…

1. Dawson’s Creek – Pacey/Joey (guessed by Jessica, Robyn, and Nicola)
My ALL-TIME favorite ship. It’s the sweetness and the sarcasm. I just love how their rough edges break down when they’re together.

2. Everwood – Ephram/Amy (guessed by Jessica and Nicola)
Colin/Amy were my original ship on this show but Ephram/Amy were the ones who stayed with me.

3. American Dreams – Sam/Meg
4. 24 – Tony/Michelle (guessed by Jessica, Robyn, and Nicola)
He committed treason for her! That’s love, people!

5. One Tree Hill – Nathan/Haley (guessed by Jessica
I’m not completely loving them right now (stupid Haley!) but I do love their story. How he only went after her to make Lucas angry and ended up falling in love… Aww.

6. The O.C. – Seth/Summer (guessed by Robyn and Nicola)
I don’t know if it’s the prettiness or the playful banter, but they always make me smile.

7. Alias – Syd/Vaughn (guessed by Jessica and Robyn)
I know they’ve kinda fizzled out in the last season or so but… they’re so pretty! And they have such an easy chemistry with each other.

8. Smallville – Lex/Lana (guessed by Robyn)
They have so much potential! And they have far more in common than initially meets the eye. (Or maybe I’ve just read too many of Christie’s fics. Hee).

9. Felicity – Felicity/Noel

10. Friends – Chandler/Monica (guessed by Robyn)
Chandler and his dry wit. Monica and her neuroses. Fantastic.

Guess away! Yay, thanks for guessing! 🙂

my little hiatus

These past few weeks with my sites down, I’ve watched an obscene amount of TV. Seriously. I finally bought Gilmore Girls on DVD and watched the entire first season in the span of 4 days. Yes, I realize that means I watched like 5 episodes a day. Hee! I had forgotten just how great the first season was. There’s Tristan! And evil Paris! And Rory/Dean (back when they weren’t adulterers)! Good times. 😀

I’ve also been giving my Felicity DVDs a workout. I sped through season 1 last week and now I’m about 3/4 done with season 2. I’ve always preferred Felicity and Noel but during this viewing, I’ve started to warm up to the idea of Felicity and Ben. I used to think of them as kind of an unrealistic couple; one that had chemistry and sexual tension but whose personalities weren’t really compatible. But now I can see that they have a special connection and I’m torn — I love both couples! Or maybe this newfound Felicity/Ben love is just an offshoot of my Keri Russell/Scott Speedman love… I listened to their commentary (on season 2’s The List) and the two of them crack me up. They sound really comfortable with each other — they laughed at how young they look, Scott teased Keri about her short hair — but they never seemed to know what the heck was going on in the episode! Heh. Though that seemed to be the case with all the cast commentaries.

Some other commentary highlights —
Greg Grunberg, Tangi Miller, Amanda Foreman and Amy Jo Johnson (commentary on season 2’s Sophomoric) singing the s3/4 theme song. Short but really funny.

Scott Foley (commentary on season 2’s Ancient History along with Keri) doing an impersonation of Scott Speedman’s whisper.

Scott Foley and Keri reminiscing about their character’s relationship and coming to the conclusion that they never had sex. HELLO! I know they’re only actors but I can’t believe they forgot about that storyline. Humph.

Anyway. Dawson’s Creek season 4 DVDs on October 5! It’s like an early birthday present for me. 😀

Speaking of birthdays — Happy (belated) Birthday to Amanda and Emma! 🙂

R2D2 obsessed

I’m in love with R2D2. (Yes, the droid from Star Wars). 😛 I keep playing with my little stuffed R2D2 toy — it beeps when you press its stomach! It doesn’t take much to amuse me. heh. Anyway, I’ve just started reading the original trilogy books and I watched The Empire Strikes Back earlier tonight and I had a question (I’m looking at YOU Sebastian!): How come R2D2 didn’t recognize Yoda when he and Luke went to the Degobah system? Or at least remembered his name or something? Hmm…

Anyway, I also caught the series (no! *sob*) finale of Felicity. *Semi-spoilers ahead!* — It was umm… ok. I have to admit that I wasn’t crazy about the whole time-traveling idea but at least it helped me understand that Ben is Felicity’s destiny. The writers made that perfectly clear especially with Noel getting married. I’ll always be a FAN though — and watching all those flashbacks of their romance in season 1 made me miss them so much. ::sigh:: The ending shots of the cast were perfect — all of them laughing and smiling. But can someone explain to me why Elena was there at the end? Didn’t she die a few episodes earlier? And Tracy? I liked his character but I didn’t think he was that important to bring back for the final episode, much less the final scene. And I just loved the little “Thank you” commercial from the WB — they really did say “Hey” a lot. 😀

shoe covers, hee!

I *loved* tonight’s episode of Felicity, which is something I haven’t been able to say in a long time. There were 3 scenes in particular that I enjoyed:

1. the Feli/Noel scene in the kitchen. Even though I wish there was something more between these two crazy kids, I love that they have a close friendship. They were so easygoing with each other. ::sigh::

2. the other Feli/Noel scene at the bar. When Feli was telling him about how awkward it was when Adam (an architecture student-Felicity helped him on his project) tried to kiss her, I loved when Noel said “Who could blame Adam?” Aww.

3. Sean and Meghan’s last scene in bed. They were completely adorable when they apologized to each other — and shoe covers! I love that idea. hee.
The only bad thing I have to say is — Why was Elena onscreen for only half a second? It was the same way last week!

countdown to goodbye

I’m so sad that Felicity is coming to an end – in many ways, it makes sense. The show started when the gang started college and now they’ve come full circle – but it always sucks to lose a good show. Anyway, tonight’s episode sure was a shocker! *Stop reading here if you don’t want to be spoiled.*

I just can’t believe that Ben’s going to be a father. ::shakes head:: That’s crazy – just when he seemed to be on a real path – *boom!* – life hits him in the ass again. Geesh. And as much as I hate to admit it, Felicity and Ben really appear to have a mature, loving relationship – they look totally, completely in love. I’m a *huge* Felicity and Noel fan so it takes a lot for me to say that – at least I have my Season 1 memories of FAN. ::sigh:: FAN will live forever in my mind! lol.
