Yay, squee and all that, but T-Bag better be 1000% necessary and awesome, because the fact that he was brought back and not Mahone chaps my hide.

Last night I came across a show called "Book to Film" (or something like that). They were doing Steven King. I haven't watched many of his movies, but they were going to do a segment on Shawshank Redemption, a movie I could probably watch all day, so I stuck through the Shining and Carrie and Cujo. Finally, they got to Shawshank, yay! And then...

My cable went out. For exactly as long as the segment. When it came back, they were on to Apt Pupil. So, boo.

I'm doing a Firefly rewatch. Apparently, this cycle through, I don't find Inara annoying. It's weird, because the first time I watched it, I loved her. The second time, i really didn't love her. This time, I'm fine with her. I just wish she enunciated better sometimes, because it bugs.

I still don't really ship her with Mal like the show wants me to. I like them when they're getting along, but I'm not into their romance. I want Inara alone or with Kaylee. And Mal with Simon.

I'm also rereading my self-insert fic. I still don't get how I created her to be with Simon and she ends up with Mal. And I don't see any other way to write that stupid fic. Why do I fail as a writer so? (Although, I like who I got Simon together with, so it worked out. Except as fantasy material).

I'm tired of having headaches. Really tired. And I pulled a muscle in my back sleeping last night.

My God, costuming just gave up during season 4, didn't they? One episode, Gretchen has red nails, the next, which takes place five minutes later, she's got nude nails. T-Bag has a pedophile mustache one minute, the next (again, five minutes later), he's got a full goatee.

I'm past the first arc of the season, where Scofield's 11 hunted down the cards for Scylla. It was pretty good. Not as good as season 1, but tightly written with good tension and character interplay. Now I'm on the second half, where you find out that Mama Scofield is alive and Lincoln starts working for the company (I can never decide if it's the company or the Company) and I just... eh. I hate everything about the decision to make Mama Scofield alive and working for the company. Everything.


No, seriously, I can't think of one thing I like.

So, my rankings for my favorite seasons go: Season 1, Season 3, Season 2, part 1 of Season 4, Season 5, part 2 of Season 4. (Well, probably not; William Fichtner is in part 2 of Season 4 and I don't think he'll be in the new season, so it automatically loses, right?) Oh! I know. I rank Breakout Kings over part 2 of season 4.

Anyway, I put season 3 above season 2 because, since it was shorter, they didn't have as much time to do weird things. Like have Alex completely forget that he ruined his life by killing Shales and deciding it was all Michael's fault. Or everything with T-Bag. Yeah, they killed Sara and did stupid things, but it was quick and really watchable and leaves a lot of room for fic. Really, it just barely beats out season 2. Like by a hair.

Any time Alex and Michael are not on screen together, this show is just boring. I wonder if Breakout Kings is on Netflix.

1. Just about ever Michael/Alex picture I have on my computer (save the ones from Sona) are from this season. Three episodes in and they spend a good deal of their time together inches apart.

Mahone Hat Count:

Scylla: black chauffeur hat, ugly bucket had
Breaking and Entering: black bucket hat

I'm just keeping count because I know he wears at least two other hats and maybe I've forgotten more.

I'm not as enthusiastic about this season. Like, on rewatching Season 3, I still really enjoyed it for all it's stupidity. I didn't even mind Gretchen as much as the first time. But, as much as I know there's good Michael/Alex stuff in season 4 (and Michael/Sara/Alex), I remember all the stupid stuff (Michael's mother is alive! Lincoln was adopted! Brain cancer! Self turns bad or something! FuckingAssassin [whose name escapes me]) and I'm just like... eh.

Still holding my breath about Fichtner and the next season of PB. I'm thinking I may be holding it forever.

I'm not done with season 2 yet (just finished 2x18: Wash), but I have Some thoughts )

Michael Scofield on the run: "I may be on the run, but that's no reason not to dress my best."

Lincoln Burrows on the run: "NO BUTTONS!!!!!"

I forgot how hard my heart broke when Kellerman met with Mahone to remind him he was "hired to do a job." I just so wanted one person on the show not to be involved with the Company somehow.
serafina20: (pb_wet neck)
I think Lincoln's biggest problem in prison was that he couldn't wear his shirt half open all the time. His chesticles ached for freedom.

Also, Dominic Purcell does nothing for me. But slap a stubbly beard on him, he goes from "ug" to "eh, okay."

I've revised my opinion. The Company contacted Alex between "Manhunt" (2x01) and "Otis" (2x02). That was why the birdbath was introduced in the second episode. However, I don't think Alex took them seriously, which is why the file of Shales shows up in "Scan" (2x02). I think, though, he didn't think it was going to be an issue because he was going to catch them. But, for some reason, Michael faking his death really threw Alex, probably because he was supposed to deliver a body or something.

Rewatching Prison Break does not magically make more completed Prison Break fic appear.
serafina20: (pb_wet neck)
So, C-Note was in on the plan for less than one day and all he does is complain. About everything. Like, Jesus, if you don't like the escape plan, WHY DID YOU TRY SO HARD TO GET IN ON IT? When I want to punch someone more than T-Bag, there's a problem. (Tweener doesn't count; that kid was born to be punched hard).

Also, as much as I was a huge Sara/Michael shipper the first season, I find myself infinitely less interested in them knowing Mahone is coming in season 2.

This has been your Leap Day random.

Today I got to rub bitter apple stuff on a cat's nipples to stop her condo mate from sucking on them. I, personally, think that Marigold was being a little bit indulgent, because she was purring an kneading while Poppy "nursed" (I think I've got them straight; I might have their names mixed up), but apparently, it had to be done.
