Person of Interest
finale was brilliant and I got to watch it with a fan friend who drove 7 hours to bring it to me.
finale was bloody epic, and rounded off a great plot arc.
, OMFG, one of fandom's great moments in that scene in the season finale
, as I insisted on telling Neery who'd just made me lunch and brought it to me in time to witness it. I probably would have been in tears if I hadn't of being scoffing down delicious homemade lasagne at the time. As a bonus, when I went to youtube later to find that one scene (and cry) I realised that a heap of other season 7 DW episodes are all up. So I can watch the ones I missed, hooray! (whole ep here season finale
Obscure & British Comment Fest
- if I was at home I would totally be rewatching all my obscure British shows and diving headfirst into this. Huh, I've never done a commentfest, I just realised. Maybe they'll run it again next year, she says hopefully...And that led me to the discovery that there are a heap of random episodes up of old tv shows I never got around to watching (ie eyed off the dvds but didn't want to pay exorbitant amounts for old shows I might not like) so now I can actually check out Man In a Suitcase and Danger Man. Win!!! random link to ep
Harry Potter fic rec
- I got into HP fandom in the early days by way of a WIP called Mirror of Maybe, where Harry got sucked into a mirror and then emerged a few minutes later having lived 15 years, so Harry was really 30 years old in a 15 year old body so Harry/Snape was fine, right? And I loved it and made everyone read it...and then it was abandoned. I didn't give up on it for ages, and always remained a little bitter about the whole thing. The other day I found a fic that had rewritten the beginning, reimagined the plot, and best of all, finished it, and it's even better than the original - No Way Back by Meri
I am so grateful for this fic. I actually feel like I have closure. *g*
A SLASH PAIRING BECOMES CANON
- And lastly, OMG OMG OMG - a great event in slash fandom - a slash pairing actually became canon. Sure, it's a tiny fandom, but it was REAL and ongoing for years and its Happy Ever After was celebrated by the SNL audience.
So, the pairing - Seth Meyers plays 'himself' as a news correspondent who regularly has 'Stefon', played by Bill Hader, come on the show to advise them on what are the coolest clubs to go to. I find very little SNL humour to my taste, and its def. not politically correct, but I do love the way Bill Hader cracks himself up, and the relevant to our interests part is how Stefon constantly flirts with Seth Meyers.
So, both actors are leaving SNL, Bill Hader to do movies, Seth Meyers is taking over The Late Show, so they actually, for real, wrapped up the relationship, MADE IT CANON. And for that, all the hats in the world off to them.
