|X-Files, Teen Wolf notes
||[Sep. 1st, 2014|11:21 pm]
I've started watching the X-Files. Technically, re-watching, but I was a kid when I last watched episodes of this show. Back then, I watched it with the fam on a tiny, really old black-and-white tv - which was all we had at our summer cabin back in the late '90s/early 2000s - with, probably terrible, Russian dubs. But I remember loving it, and I remember that Mulder/Scully were kind of a thing?
So I started watching again from the very first ep. Only made it through a few eps of the S1 so far but ooooh it's goood. Creepy good. Also: Moulder is adorable. An adorable, very handsome dork. Mmmhhmmm. And Scully is just great, too! No wonder I shipped these two even as a kid - they have insane chemistry without even trying. (Also, lol, all the clothes/hair styles/make-up trends seem really old-fashioned, even though this was within my lifetime. Also - the audio. I don't know what it is, but old-movie audio just has this really distinct sound/feel to it. I don't even know how to describe it.
-Well, Scott got over Allison really fast :( I mean, seriously? One summer to get over the death of the girl you supposedly thought was meant for you? Whatever.
-Piggy-backing on the previous: what is it with tv shows feeling like if the MC doesn't have a girlfriend/almost-girlfriend ALL THE TIME then there's a problem? (At least Suits held out for like a season...)
-Malia's ok, but I wish they'd pursued a Stiles/Lydia thing instead.
-Actually, I'm kinda disappointed in the canon couples all around lately. Braeden just seems too random of a character to put together with Derek.
-I actually really liked the assassins/dead pool plotline and how it was such a "Case". (And Lydia's lesbian grandmother.)
-Peter is such a delightfully creepy douche.
-I...kinda ship Derek/Chris. Only KINDA. (I just wanna ship Chris, ok?) Shush.
-Wish they'd left Kate dead. I kinda hate what they've been doing with her. I know she was supposed to be an antagonist all along, but in S1 there were very obvious shades of grey there. Now she's just kinda...crazy, I guess. It's not OOC, exactly, but just way too over the top.
In other news: OUaT and Downton Abbey come back in a month! \0/
