March 20, 1997

I was a fifteen year old sophomore in high school when the first episode of Buffy The Vampire Slayer premiered. I wasn’t popular, wasn’t cool, hung out with a bunch of misfits, even sometimes with a teacher or two.

And there was Buffy Summers, who hung out with her own group of misfits, even the librarian. She navigated the trials and tribulations of high school at the same time I was. Although a bit of escapism, in watching Buffy and her friends I found kindred spirits … a part of me in each of them.

When Buffy and Co. graduated high school in the summer of 1999 [Season 3], so did I … our cap and gown colors were even the same (yes, I geeked out).

As Buffy entered her first year in college [Season 4], so did I.

I lost my mom at the end of 1999.

Mid-way through Season 5 [2000 - 2001], Buffy lost her mom. That episode both moved me and brought the reality of my own situation crashing down on me … And then Anya said what I'm sure lots of people wish they could say but never do. I actually still cannot watch that episode.

Season 6 of Buffy was the darkest of the seasons and aired during some of my own darker moments. Although it was dark itself, the show was one of the few bright spots for me during that time … as I overcame some of my own personal demons by the middle of 2002, so did Buffy by the time Season 6 had ended.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer ended on May 20, 2003 … a part of me is still with the Scooby Gang (although not in Sunnydale since they blew that city to bits … ) The show will forever be a part of me, something to point to as having an impact on who I am now.

I’m ready to be strong.

I watched an episode of 'Cold Case' last night that really struck me ... and remained with me even today.  It made me very very happy to be living in the world and time I live in now.

Ever have a show that has those characters that are only in one episode but stick with you?  Make you want to find fic that makes it better?  Yeah ...

So ... I was going to do a review of last night's Suits (which I had to watch late because stuck at work >.<) ... but ... I read [ profile] mskatej's review and ... Yep.  She said everything I was thinking.

So if you want to know what I thought, go read her review LOL ... it's here

Really trying to get back into using this thing ... so some randomness!

America's Next Top Model is coming back in August ... I haven't watched in like, 4 years, but ... this season is 'Guys v. Girls' ... I'm intrigued.  I might have to watch.  Although it's only going to feed all the bunnies that pop up about all my fave boys competing to be a top model ... *facepalm*

In other news I bought the new Fall Out Boy album 'Save Rock and Roll' while I was on vacation and I absolutely LOVE it ... like, hardcore in love with it.  They did a song featuring Elton FUCKING John!!!!  I mean ... *loves* ... it's a great album and I highly recommend it!

I think I might need to watch Suits again so I can fully digest and make comments ... there were some things I loved, some things that made me wibbly and some things that kinda ticked me off, but ... MY SHOW IS BACK!!!  *bounces happily*

If you haven't heard the news yet ... (Casting News Spoiler?) )

O.M.G. this episode!!!!!!  I really have no words for how epic it was!!!!!

*Louis — KILLED IT!!!!!!!!!!!  Every single fucking scene he was in was epically awesome.  And that last scene with Harvey and Louis?  Without saying a word, just … WOW.
*Mike — Again, rocked it.  And I love that you saw him really trying to get his shit together, help Harvey, help Harold!  And he took that beating and even admitted he deserved it (which he did) … i
*Harvey — Vulnerable, HUMAN Harvey … *happy sigh* I kinda love it.  And good lord, his reaction when Mike first showed up all beat up.  First reaction was to kick the other guys’ ass?  Slashtastic!  And instantly knowing what Mike meant with the comment about Harvey’s mom and dad with a comment of ‘you got off easy’ … His first scene with Louis in Louis’ office was epic and the second one?  I have no words for how awesome both men were in that last scene WITHOUT SAYING A WORD!!!  *flails*

The whole episode was pretty fucking awesome, though.  I can’t wait for next week.  Seriously.
Suits is back, y’all!!!!
sinderella81: (Mike Ross)
It was an amazing night!

Me and Karen and Cin all sat like ... 5 rows back and we had really good views.  The Season 2.5 premiere is ... wow.  Doesn't pull me quite through the ringer as most of Season 2, and there was plenty of comedy there too.  I think everyone is really going to enjoy it.

The Q&A was amazing.  Me and Cin managed to get it so Karen could ask her question, we just kept pointing at her *g*

They are all just as flawless in person as they are on screen.

The whole thing was streaming on the web and apparently someone *cough*Meg*cough* said you could hear me laugh ... goodness.

Anyway, still trying to process ... it's just unreal.

Meme Time!

What am I going to do until January???????

Okay, so for most of the episode I felt like punching Louis in the nuts ... I get that he finally felt like he had the respect he'd wanted for so long, but ... it still hurt.

And when he and Donna were talking ... amazing.

But then Louis redeemed himself at the end of the episode.

Patrick Adams deserves an award for the funeral scene.  Just ... UGH

I don't like Tess already.

OMG!  Mike and Harvey got high together!  And can we get Harvey smiling and laughing more?   Cuz ... GUH!!!!!!!!

Harvey and Tanner's scene in the boxing ring.  It was brilliant.

The final partner's meeting ... Louis redeemed himself.

And really?  I don't think Harvey will ever go for Managing Partner.  He respects Jessica too much.

I'm really hoping Louis doesn't bully things up.

I still don't like Tess.  And I'm sick of the 'will they, won't they' between Mike and Rachel.


Is is January yet?

Kristen Kreuk is starring in the reboot of Beauty and the Beast ... I'm very much unsure about this
sinderella81: (Harvey Specter)
So ... last night ... I don't know if I've had time to fully process it, but ... woah.

Louis totally rocked it - standing up to Jessica and Hardman ...

Harvey trying to be honest and nice ... there was just too much animosity between him and Louis, I think.  I mean. he definitely tried.  Hell, he even told Jessica to have Louis take his office!

I'm glad Rachel passed her LSATs!  She's finally getting more plot instead of just being eye candy.

GRAMMY!  I literally sobbed!  Poor Mike ... I just ... I can't come to grips with it right now. 

And the preview for next week!
sinderella81: (Mike Ross)
Okay, so nothing too insightful from last night's ep ... mostly squee!

Harvey in the present ... just ... I ached so hard and wanted to give him a hug.  And him and Jessica working in secret is kinda cool, but I think it sucks they're keeping Mike in the dark a bit on this ... 

Mike in the past both cracked me up and made me wanna hug him!  Those shorts and gloves!  And now we really know what set him on that path ... *cuddles Mike*

Louis in the present ... I kinda wanted to throttle him!

Harvey in the past ... with the news of his father ... *sobs* ... 

I want Zoe to come back! :D

Only two more episodes before the summer finale?  What will I do until winter?

Some fast and dirty thoughts about last night's ep:

Harvey's mom ... a door has opened!!!

Damn that Tanner!  I'm glad Harvey punched him!

REGINALD!!!!  *flails*

Canon bi!  "Who said I didn't try to sleep with Ted Phillips?" ... said oh so nonchalantly!  

LOUIS!!!  He knocked it out of the park!  And he totally loves Donna *nods*

Harvey listened to Mike(his boyfriend) and settled!!

Hardman ... grrrr ... he used the settlement as a way to try to knock Jessica out as Managing Partner ... bastard.

Previews for the Rewind ep!!!  *flails some more*

Gutted ... absolutely gutted.

I mean, sure Harvey in a hoodie and all sweaty and then in a t-shirt was hot, and then seeing him all vulnerable and near tears TWICE was endearing and made Harvey seem more ... real.


DONNA!!!  I can't even ... And I know we didn't see what happened when Jessica and Harvey had their talk, and I'm sure Harvey fought for it, but ... damn they'd better make this right.

And I kind of love the fact Harvey was waiting by the elevator.  Some people might hate it, but ... if he wanted to cut her out, he wouldn't have been there.  I think Harvey's going to fight for her.

Still .. GUTTED.

Although, next week we get tuxes ... small consolation

Anyone on my flist watch it last night?

It was epically epic!  Sigourney Weaver, Ellen Burstyn, Carla Gugino and Sebastian Stan kicked ass!!

Plus, there may have been a little 30 second blip with Sebastian Stan that revved my motor *wink*

sinderella81: (Mike Ross)
I don't have the words to explain how much I adored last night's episode and how many feels it gave me ... 

Is it next Thursday yet?
sinderella81: (Mike Ross)
So some flaily fun thoughts about last night's ep ... 

Grammy!  I love the way she tells Mike the way it is, no bullshit

Mike dreamed about the can opener!!  What was he doing with it?

OMG Harvey and Mike's conversation in the bullpen ... seriously? ROFLMAO!!!!!

Blondie and Junior!  *snort*

Louis/Sheila!!!  Those two need to get together! :D  Their scenes were just super awesome!!!!

Harriet Specter and Michelle Ross.  That is all.

The scene between Harvey and Louis in the bullpen!!!!!!!  I just ... I can see how they used to be when they were associates and it makes me want to see how they got to where they are now ... 

Thank goodness Mike didn't kiss Rachel again.

I really can't stand Hardman ... he needs to stop using Harvey's boyfriend against him.
