questions and thoughts about dangerous liasons

I think this episode was the shark? Yeah?

Now, this is not a regular complaint - something was epically wrong with this episode, right?

 

Tyler gone off on his own for the second time now to get his shit together? Really? Really?

Klaus has nothing better to do than draw (and hand deliver, i guess) pencil-parchment scratches of caroline and a horse? with his mother plotting his demise? Was he not supposed to be totally prepared for everything? why did he suddenly go "well, mama ain't a total bitch. she say's i'm forgiven so i'm not going to worry about it."

Not to piss you caroline lovers off, but unless this thing goes up in the air really badly, klaus might not be able to redeem himself? And, confused about this, is caroline aware that Tyler bit her because klaus wanted him too? Cause she don't really have a reason to go dancing with the dude in his dress.

Horrible horrible sotryline.

Matt? nuttin to say.

Alaric? he and merideth should elope, run away and die. seriously.

I really miss jeremy, because anything he'd be in, would have been better than anything that was in that episode.

Stefan and Damon! What the fuck? And Elena? Christ? Who is writing this thing? And worse, who are they writing it for? Who do they think enjoyed that little arm-in-arm-in-arm scene and the ball?

Who the fuck has balls? And who the fuck attends them? and who the fuck would write that? and who the fuck would watch that? and who the fuck would enjoy it?

Really and truly to be exact:

WHAT THE FUCK?

WHO THE FUCK? 

WHY... THE FUCK...

THIS THING USED TO HAVE POTENTIAL! IT WAS SHIT, BUT GOOD SHIT. NOW IT'S JUST SHIT, THE KIND I CAN PRODUCE MYSELF!

not to imply that if you enjoyed this episode you're retarded, but i'd have to be retarded. At about fourteen minutes in i remember feeling to vomit a bit. not sure what was happening around that time but i was pretty disgusted.

TVD RACIST?

"So what point are you trying to make youngnan?"

 

@ Elijah's Hottie - Maybe it's a culture thing if you're not getting it, or that I'm not getting you. I've never at any point said it's not an issue, but i think there's a general misunderastanding as to what "racist" means. I'm not going to get into the nitty gritty of it, cause you seem to have a sociology text in your posession and I'm sure there's a chapter or two somewhere in it about what exactly racism is.

 

Representation of the vast number of ethnicities in modern media will be an issue that continues into the forseable future because media caters to the society. If you've access to non-American media, you'll notice the difference. Fix the mind-set of people who only see the world in racial planes, fix the mindset created by centuries of conditioning, and TVD will follow. You don't raise that demand in a society by labelling everything the light touches on as "racist". That's counter-productive. Racism goes beyond casting black people as one family of black witches. Racism goes beyond not having asian cast members.

"Your attitude or disposition on the issue means shit to me" Fix responses like this first before you to try to implement "diverse casting legislature".

Insensitivity? Wash off the need to be pesristently politcally correct. Grow a little bit and muck around the world a little bit. Read a chapter, then go and try to live it out. Stop watching TVD, get some visine and then open up them eyes. Balance out the passion of the SoSci life with some real world practicality.

TVD RACIST?

I get the idea behind the thread, but i think we can say it's less racist than almost everything else (everything else that's not deliberately catoring to a certain ethnicity). In my head, it's actually kinda progressive.

 

That KW is gay is kinda news to me, and i can almost pat him on the back, because just because you're gay doesn't meant eveything you do has to be gay. (Talking about the glee guy here) (although the true blood guy manages to use his gayness to make evetything in TB ultra sexy)

Also, just because Bill is gay, shouldn't make him tolerant of everything else. That's like saying black people shouldn't be homophobes. It's like "dude, you're a fag (insert random derogatory name). You're not allowed to have opinions about vampires or anything, just be grateful that no one's stringing YOU up." So i thought it was cool that they could seperate the issues and not have him as some all-inclusive, uber-tolerant atheist.

 

And wrt the race thing. TVd is probably the most inclusive show on CW to date. Calling Trevino hispanic is like calling lorenzo lamas hispanic. And calling bonnie black is like calling thandie newton an african. See the point? Not that they aren't, but are they the most representative of the entire body? Perhaps not. Not that we have a black scale, or a chinese scale or a hispanic scale, but be real... How mexican on a scale of 1-10 is Trevino?

But check out anything else on tv and it's worse 9times/10, where there's one single mixed person total, including walk-ons. Are they racist? ... they might be recovering racists... They're trying. you can see the effort.

Your Top 10 Lead characters in TV Shows

1. Gannicus - Gods of the arena. The guy is the most baddass dude on any screen. Flat up, BAMF! In yo face!

2. Anthony - Rome. #2 just because of the ending with Cleo, he lost some points.

3. Battiatus - Blood and Sand/Gods of the Arena (he was the absolute best, don't know how S2 will function without him. Just the way he reads those lines... listen to what he's actually saying... Profane! Epic!)

4. Shawn - psych... Cutish, bumbly, kinda genius... Lestat?

5. The guys from Shield, any one of them. The whole "lead unit" in that show... Awesome dudes. Best twisted occupational bromance ever.

6. Dashel from death valley, though i don't know if he counts as lead... Him or Nathan from Misfits... Both are the same Crazy-comical, slightly-gay...

7. Dean - supernatural. "S1 - Who ya gonna call?"

8. Sylar - Heroes. Stole it that time he cuts open Claire's head and is all "i'm not going to eat you, that's disgusting, Claire" even though that's what everyone was assuming he was going to do. A lot of sexy swagger... Yes, I know he came out...

9. Atia - Rome. My number one girl. Head bitch/badass in charge... except at the ending...

10. Bill - True blood. Less hot than Eric, but he actually has a role. I like him since his creepy beginning in S1 when they introduced his junky vampire friends and Sookie doesn't even think to say "what kind of guy has friends like these?"

 

To fit in somewhere: Aidan and Herrick from Being Human... Wifred... Unless, we're not taking comedies. If we are then Micheal from Aressted Development and Sterling from Archer. Adama - BSG (the father). Mal (Firefly). Cliff from hidden palms? I just watched that like 2 weeks ago. Good 8 episodes...

Gimme some time to rethink, but off the top of my head, yeah... Gannicus as number one for sure, with Anthony and Battiatus rounding out top 3

ot:misfits tv show apreciation thread

lol. I like that while Rudy's kinda similar to Nathan he's way more mature... though still juvenile. Kudos to the actor for getting so many dimensions to a new character in just one episode. That was good writing. Probably the best any show ever managed after losing the star.

 

Only hope Being Human manages half so well.

Shockingly, I like Rudy. He's more of an asshole than Nathan, but Nathan was a really indescribable asshole so I don't even think you can compare them. Rudy's all 'insensitive asshole' while Nathan was all 'retarded asshole'...

 

The new powers kinda suck by comparison, I find. How is rocket scientist a power again?

I ditched out of my classes so that I could get home in time. I have to watch it. Have to. Don't know what I was thinking about being all disciplined...

 

Last time, I sooo couldn't wait to see what happened with Nathan, but this time i know he's not there. They didn't really have a cliffhanger ending, but I still want to see this so bad! I hope Simon has completed his hotness transition. I'm gonna drop TVD and everything for a little while and binge watch that instead, cause i only have time for 3 shows - a one hour thing - Misfits, a sitcom - Suburgatory, and 1 anime - Hunter hunter remake.

 

(Notify me if Klonnie happens or anything spectacular)
