Life on Mars - the Britsh TV show - is what I am talking about. Sam Tyler is the character I love the most of all the charcters I came to love in my 15 years of following fandoms and Sam Tyler and Gene Hunt are my OTP.
I'm 31, I'm German, I'm female --- I have my opinions - I do not think that they should be popular ones or that others should agree with them. To be honest I'm also really new to all this blog/tumblr/active on the internet stuff, so do not expect too much ... like flawless english ...or something. Also, I tend to rant about the things I'm passionate about!
And I have many things to be passionate about:
Life on Mars
John Simm and his body of work ( that I was able to watch.)
Doctor Who (but be warned I don't like Moffat)
Tolkien's Books and PJ movies based on them.
Let me just add "Hannibal" and "Vikings" to the list of things I got into recently, and will reblog and post about.
They are each on their 2nd season - I just hope they stay as good as they are - and, of course, that they get a satisfactorily number of seasons (not too many, not canceled before they have told their stories)
When Merlin was on, I was into it - maybe there will be a "Arthur Returns" TV-movie in the future, or something - I would watch it.
"Game of Thrones" - waiting for season 4 ( reading the books while I'm waiting.)
Really liked Marvel's The Avengers
My old loves - the passion is gone but the affection resurfaces as soon as they pop up
The X-Files - Mulder, Scully and Skinner
the Pretender - Jarod and Miss Parker
BTVS and Angel - Spuffy and Spangel
Bleach - Ichigo, Renji, Byakuya and Mister Awesome aka Zaraki Kenpachi with little Yachiru.
I will never be able to decide which photos of the Hannibal cast are best.
Would it be one of the photos where they smile like they’re standing next to Mickey Mouse and not corpses?
Would it be one of Bryan Fuller’s fan boy moments?
Would it just be a general, light hearted selfie?
Or would it be one of the incredible flower crown set?
I think [Will] needed it, because there was so much despair, and everybody was just assuming he was guilty of all of these crimes. I think he needed someone to say simply, “I believe you.” When I was writing that scene [where Bedelia visits Will] I teared up, because something so simple as someone saying, “I understand you, and I believe you,” when you’re in a dark, lonely place is such a beacon of hope. I love Gillian Anderson as a human being and as an actress. And I love Hugh Dancy as a human being and as an actor, so I was excited to get them in a scene together, especially one that was so still and eerie and wrought.
I’ve always been inspired by this line from Damaged that Juliette Binoche says, which is, “Damaged people are dangerous, because they know they can survive,” and I paraphrased that in the last scene with Dr. Du Maurier and Will Graham, where there is a camaraderie in the damaged. You may feel you are alone in your damage, because it is such an interior experience to be damaged in that way, and then to have somebody come along who you know can know you in that way, it’s a beautiful thing. It’s a glimmer of hope. So I was really excited about that moment, writing it, and even more excited when I saw the actors perform it, because I do think that there is a bond between Will and Bedelia that I hope we get to explore.
