SPN was pretty decent this week, it was nice to have a good old-fashioned MOTW episode with lots of brotherly talks. SPN 1004 )

And hee, next weeks episode certainly seems different!





I enjoyed The Flash a lot more this week too. The Flash 104 )

Umm I hate to say it, but The Flash fell really flat for me this week :( The villain just felt too formulaic and was really struggling to hold my attention. It didn't bother me so much in the first two episodes, so I don't know if it's just because of the mood that I was in while I was watching, or if it simply is that the meta-human of the week is getting old for me now. The writing just felt kind of bad in places, apparently the first two episodes were both by the show creators, which might explain why they felt so much stronger to me...

The Flash 103 )


Supernatural wasn't all that exciting to me this week either I'm afraid. It was decent enough, and there were some moments that I really appreciated, but overall I think that my expectations were just too high as it didn't absolutely blow me away as I'd been hoping for. Okay honestly I'm mostly disappointed that Sam and Dean didn't get a hug and super-dramatic H/C comforts like in my favourite fics :P Plus I'm bummed that SPN 1003 )

ETA Okay yeah actually I was being too hard on SPN, that wasn't a bad episode at all, there were some very good scenes in it

LOVING Dean as a demon this week, when he comes over all chilling and badass I was close to having palpitations!!

Supernatural )



I'm still really enjoying The Flash, it has such a sense of lightness and fun about it compared to other superhero shows like Smallville with all of their angsting (And I've decided to drop Gotham, I really wanted to like it, but I just couldn't get into it).

The Flash )


And some Veronica Mars news! :D

Exclusive: Whatever Happened to Duncan Kane? Veronica Mars Star Teddy Dunn Speaks Out

The real reason Duncan was so catatonic early in Season 1:Almost as soon as Veronica Mars premiered, it became clear that fans didn't like Duncan, who was originally slated to be Veronica's OTP. He came off as vacant, distant and just sort of... there. Duncan later became much more dynamic, but this isn't because Dunn's talent improved exponentially overnight. It's because Dunn was originally under the impression Duncan had a mental illness.

"I was told early on that Duncan was bipolar, so when I got the role I got some books, starting researching it and looking into it," Dunn says. Since psychosomatic drugs used to treat bipolar disorder often leave the user emotionally distant, Dunn made the conscious choice to play Duncan that way. However, once it became clear that viewers were having a hard time connecting to Duncan, "I was told to leave all that behind and go back to being the gregarious big man on campus," Dunn says. "I had a hard time reconciling the two and I think I struggled with the precedent we had set with the character in the first few episodes versus what they wanted to get out of the character later down the line


(It's funny he says that because at the time I did assume that's what he was aiming for after it was revealed that Duncan was on medication, that he was deliberately toning down his performance for that reason. I actually found Duncan a lot more intriguing in early season 1 when they were playing the mystery of what he knew about Lily's death, it was in early season 2 that I started to think that okay he's just a bad actor lol, because even when Duncan was dating Veronica again and should have been happier, he still came off as really subdued and blank idk. I never felt like his performance changed significantly, although apparently the actor feels that he did switch it around?

He also talks about the criticism from TWoP, the decision to write him him out, his decision to leave acting, and finally

"They would have to first want me to," Dunn says. "I'm not sure there's room for him anymore is what I'm trying to say. But like I said, I really like Rob and Kristen and everybody who I worked with on the show so I'm not going to say no I'm not open to it. But also, I'm a lawyer now. I'm not an actor anymore. It's not to say I never want to act again. I do. I'm just not sure I want to revisit that character, to be honest with you."

And I've finished watching season 7 of Supernatural, but I gave up on catching up on seasons 8 and 9 in time, so I jumped straight into 1001.


Supernatural 1001 )


I also enjoyed the pilot for The Flash. I don't really have that much to say about it, but it seemed fun and I liked the characters

And I watched my first episode of American Horror Story, and er that was different *g* Is anyone on my flist following that show?
