This what Team Jacob Edward is Looking For…oh and Feathers

The Top Ten Reasons TJE’s Excited About Breaking Dawn

We love when Team Jacob Edward writes to us and we were so happy to get her letter! Lets’s see just how excited she really is!

What I’m excited about Breaking Dawn

I don’t know about you, but for me it feels like it has been an ETERNITY that I’ve been waiting for Breaking Dawn (Part I) to come out, and when it comes to vampires, an eternity is a very freaking long time!  And finally, finally the day is upon us.

But it got me thinking; why exactly am I excited for Breaking Dawn – PI?  Let’s count them down, shall we?

 10.  Bad hair day… or I guess, eternity

No.  I’m not really looking forward to the bad hair per se, but really Twilight movies and bad hair/wigs kind of seems like it needs to go together:  Edward’s bouffant (which actually, I really kind of miss) and Jacob’s black mop of a wig in Twilight.  Jacob’s mop hair Part II and Jasper’s Poodle ‘do extraordinaire in New Moon.  Alice’s soccer mom hair (minus the grad party) and Jacob’s—I mean, Bella’s mop wig in Eclipse.

 I mean, isn’t part of the fun finding things to gigglecringe* about?  I kind of think so, don’t you, Spider monkey? (EC: You had me at “Spider monkey”)

*Yes, gigglecringe, I know it’s not a real word.  I make up words and use them as if they’re real because I’m odd cool like that.

And from the stills and previews I’ve seen, it appears that Carlisle wins the Bad Hair Eternity metal for BD.  I’m wondering if the Summit Nieces Collective just realized that he hadn’t had a horrid hair moment in the films, and they feel it’s important that all the main characters have horrendous hair at one point or another through the films.  It’s just Carlisle’s turn, I guess.

It's just so bad... That hair goes horribly with a jaunty scarf!

9.  It’s our one last Twilight movie that we can enjoy in peace before the world flogs us all and the Twilight fandom ends up being the butt of many (more) jokes on Tosh.0

Personally some of us (EC) can't WAIT for the TOSH.O jokes. (I really don't want to find him as funny as I do, but I can't help it)

Honestly, when I read the series, I didn’t have one shred of icky feelings about Jake’s imprinting on Renesmee.  Stephenie did an amazing job explaining the whole imprinting thing and softened the blow before Jake imprinted on Nessie with Quil and Clair in Eclipse.  We already knew, there wasn’t anything gross or horrendous about it, so when I read the end of Jacob’s book in Breaking Dawn, my reaction was something like, “Oh my God!  Jake imprinted on Renesmee!” not, “Ugh, that’s (fill in the blank with whatever repulsive adjective you’d prefer)”

You get the point. 

Honestly, I think the whole Jacob imprinting on Nessie isn’t going to be in BD-P1 (seriously, it’s a frick’n long title, I had to abbreviate).  I think that this is our last chance to enjoy a Twilight movie in peace (well, other than the harmless heckling we let roll off our backs).  And I am fully bracing myself for next year when I’m quite certain that the sh*t is going to hit the fan and we’ll be all stoned to death.  Okay, probably not stoned to death, but the ridicule will be fierce for us… and then there’s poor Taylor who will never live it down. (EC: You know, poor Taylor is going to have to hold the demon baby and look longingly at it, with a single tear running down his chiseled (yet still baby) face)

8.  Alice’s clothes

"Will Alice have cool clothes? Magic 8-Ball Says..."Be Afraid, be very Afraid"

I will be the first to admit, I am nothing close to a fashionista.  I never had the knack some have to look fantabulous all the time even if they aren’t swathed in designer items head-to-toe.  I’ve always envied those people and tried to take cues from them but never was blessed with that gift.  Alice is supposed to be blessed with said gift and unlimited funds to quite literally swathe herself in the hottest, most cutting edge fashion out there… and she just… doesn’t in the movies.

Actually, I thought Alice looked her best in Twilight.  To me, she looked the closest to what I remember Bella describing the Cullens in the books.  It was something along the lines of; “their clothes were simple and understated but hinted at designer origins.”  (I’m reciting from memory so it was something like that, anyway.)  The Twilight movie seemed to have done that for our favorite local vampire family even without actually going all out designer.  When New Moon came, I was confused because I’d remembered reading somewhere that the costume department was going to be using actual designer clothes this time instead of knockoffs. Like I’d said I’m not a fashionista, nor do I pretend to be, but I don’t know what designer put together New Moon Alice’s ensemble.

Therefore, I’m looking forward to seeing what she wears in Breaking Dawn; if she looks cute and adorable, or if she’s Navaho designed smocks that resemble fancy bur lack sacks.

7.   The resurrection of Buttcrack Santa*

What?  That’s not going to happen?!?  Dammit!  I was so stoked too!  -kicks imaginary rock-

*If you don’t’ know who Buttcrack Santa is, hop over to LTT’s old site (www.letterstotwilight.wordpress.com) and you’ll find the history of Buttcrack Santa there. 

May he rest in peace.

Okay fine, the real #7…

7.  Shirtless Jacob

I don't care how old he is... he will always be jailbait to me.

While I am unswervingly loyal to my Team Edward status, little Robbie boy doesn’t have the ah-may-zing rock hard, buff build that our lovely Taylor does from those meat patties… though according to that window sill busting shot, Rob’s been working out which I’m forever thankful for. (Sends praises to the gods.)

Rock hard abs are completely overrated.

I was going to say, I was looking forward to “Shirtless Wolf boys” but it seems that Taylor is the only one who’s really committed to giving us the drool-worthy body.  I think the SNL skit where Taylor dressed in a Team Edward shirt and a mini-skirt (AWESOME) said it best, “I was like YES!  I want to bake cookies on your stomach.”

Check it out:  http://www.hulu.com/watch/114945/saturday-night-live-lab-partners

So while I’m a diehard Team Edward girl, it doesn’t mean I can appreciate Jacob.  I’m devoted not dead. (EC: So disappointed in you right now. tsk tsk.)

6.  The Denali hoochie mamas vampires

You know Mike Newton was so about to try to hit that...and that...and that

Yes, that’s right.  I want to see the Denali girls; specifically, Tanya.  Sure, I’ve seen pictures the chick that’s playing Tanya, but I want to see her as Tanya.  I want to see her blatantly flirt with Edward and have Edward smile that crooked smile and walk away with Bella on his arm.

Take that you little succubus!   I’m Bella’s going to turn Edward into an incubus that bites pillows and busts up headboards.  Ha!

Hmmm – or maybe seeing Tanya put doubt in Bella that maybe she and Edward had a history.  That could be fun too.

5.  Having the day off

While this isn’t exactly about Breaking Dawn itself, it is something I’m very much looking forward to.  Yes boys and girls, this will be my FOURTH day of vacation that I have judiciously spent in order to watch the first showing of the Twilight movies the day they come out… well, negating the midnight showing.  (I have also used vacation days to watch Water for Elephants, Remember Me, Harry Potter… it’s kind of my thing.)

Every year, one of my best RL friends and I take the day off of work so we could go to the first showing opening day.  Well, except New Moon where I went with someone else because she ended up having an emergency c-section 6 weeks before her due date, the day New Moon was released… the poor woman was so ticked off listening to the nurses, who were prepping her, talking about how they were going to see New Moon that night.  She flashed a look to her husband that she wanted them to shut up because it was bad enough she was missing it, but them talking about it was like getting it rubbed in her face. 

Anyway, we do this because having the day off work rocks, but also, the theater attendance at 10 am on a weekday is very low, including no tweeners that don’t know how to stop squealing when Jacob disrobes every 2 minutes.  (My second time watching New Moon was with my sisters and realized those girls really never stop squealing.)  Then after we watch the movie we go to lunch and rehash what we liked and didn’t like.  It’s a blast.  I’d highly recommend it.  Besides, be honest, you’re not going to get anything at work accomplished the day the movie comes out because you’ll be too busy thinking about how long you have until you can get out of there to watch the movie.

4.  New fodder

Twilight was the best for fun fodder:

 “Hold on tight Spidermonkey.”  “Kids love those little bottles.”  “Purple’s cool”  “Hey Arizona, how you likin’ the rain, girl?” and on, and on…

And while I doubt we’ll come away with the epicness that Twilight had provided for giggleable lines, I have high hopes for something good… in a good way, not cringe worthy, hide my face way.

3.  Getting answers to unanswered questions

Like, what the eff Aro was so pissed about in the preview clip I’d seen.  Was I the only one who watched that one preview where Aro throws the chick I can only assume is Heidi or some other Volturri vamp across the turret?  I was so confused. (EC: That was NOT in the book! I checked. There WAS lots of  Jacob running in the woods. yawn.)

Or why exactly UC & Moon from LTT loved.  Like, LOVED BD – P1 when they saw it on Monday because those lucky girls got to not only see the likes of the Twilight cast and crew in the flesh, they got to see the movie.  #jealous.

2.  Vampire Cesarean

Good ol’ Bill Condon (seriously, I see “condom” every time I read his name) promised sex, blood and feathers and I’m looking forward to it.

Enough said. (EC: The best part of Breaking Dawn. It not only becomes a ‘horror’ book, but Edward finally stops his whining enough for the most creative way to perform a c-section EVER!)

1.  Feathers, Busted Headboards and Bruises, oh my!

Was there really anything else you were expecting for my number 1?  As far as I’m concerned it’s just like Edward said in Twilight, “There is no other option!”

I do realize we will end up with a “Fade to Sad” and as much as I really would have wanted an R rated sex scene, I know it’s not going to happen.  But if the clip of Robward busting up that windowsill is just some of the amazingness we’ll get, I’m stoked!

With that being said, this could all go horribly wrong.  After Twilight, Rob and Kristen got awkward around each other in front of the camera and while I’ve never seen Eyes Wide Shut, I heard Tom and Nicole’s sex scene was AW-KWARD.  I’m kind of afraid that will happen here, but I’m still crossing my fingers.

Much better angle

One last thing… I did a Top Ten because it seemed appropriate, but I do have a BONUS thing I’m looking forward to:

I finally have been able to abstain from reading the books more than 6 months before the movie (that was HARD to keep from caving to temptation).  I’m looking forward to just enjoying the movie without the book fresh in my mind to nit-pick and compare how they’re just not the same.  AND finally being able to re-visit my old friends that my kids call my Apple Book, Flower Book, Ribbon Book & Game Book.

What are you looking forward to?

True Blood “Beeeeeel, RUN!!!”

Posted in Shifters, True Blood, Vampire Diaries, Vampires, Werewolves with tags , , , , on August 24, 2011 by talksupe

Or whatever the title was.

WC: So Sookie pretty much had the dream I’ve been having for forever, I even dreamt I had those abs!

She also dreamt of her “suitors”  in their traditional attire, Bill’s in his henley and Eric’s in his infamous black tank with the uber low Stefan neckline.

I miss them like this.

Briefly back!

EC: It seems we have forgotten about the previous two episodes… a lot of Sookie and Simpleton Eric frolicking naked. Way too much frolicking and not enough plot. However…I will try to fill in some plot from those episodes in discussion of events from this one. I really need to get back into True Blood. This is getting embarassing! 

That dream. I wasn’t missing that super low tank that Eric picked up from Forever 21 or Abercrombie & Fitch or where ever little 15-year old girls are shopping these days.

SWD: LOL, Forever 21!

EC: All Eric needs is a Hanes push up bra to go with the low necklines. Now stick him in a nice black Sam’s shirt like Damon wears… I’ll admit it, finally, Bill is looking more attractive these days. Also, as I step up onto my questionable feminist high-horse, Sookie got on my darn nerves. Was that her version of woman power? “I’ll let you both be my lovers!” What?!? You know what would be fun Sook? Instead say, “Screw both of you Mr. Bossy Pants. I’m going back to college and getting a high paying job where I won’t have to wear short-shorts.” Real women empowerment, not a twisted version of reverse Big Love.  

WC: So apparantly Jason “distracted” Jessica from her perpetual hymen pain with his “skills” in the bedromm, er I mean, truck bed.

EC: Jason and Jessica were hotter than all of that Sookie/Eric we’ve been watching. (Which is disappointing, because I had been looking forward to it.) Actually, Sam and Shifter Mom was hotter, too. Hmm…when they took away Eric memories, they took away his hotness. That’s just wrong.

I understand Hoyt is hurt, but he is being a huge jerk. The scene with Jessica crying to Nan about him was hilarious, but it made me want to hit Hoyt with something.

At least I moved the chainsaw out of the way.

WC: I didn’t cry during the ghost baby scene. Nope not at all, not one tear. *sniff sniff* #neededTissuesandaHug

EC: It was sweet when Mama Ghost was reunited with her baby! At first, I was trying to see the purpose of this subplot, but I think I have figured out where they are going with it. Jesus and Layfette are going to be the good witches to combat Marnie. I have a feeling they will be getting some help from Tara, Holly and the rest of the witches that are locked up in the magic shop. (Yay Tara! That’s a real friend saving Sookie like that. I still see Sookie pushing poor Tara under a bus for Eric or Bill…ridiculous.)

WC: Andy on V reminds of this little French bulldog I see when I run. Full of bark and gruff.

It's not me, IT'S THE V!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

EC: My sister has Frenchies…they are cute, little dog piggies. Like Andy. I wonder what’s going to happen with Terry and Andy? There is a lot of tension there.

WC: I can’t believe I am saying this. At least Amnesiax Eric wasn’t in it much. You know he is coming back so evil when he gets his memory back and it is gonna be good, like staking Talbot good.

EC: Eric is still kind of evil with all the fairy eating and witch attacking in the foggy cemetary scene last episode. (BTW…kudos to Bill for saving Tara. Bill is almost always the hero. Simpleton Eric, not so much. He’s just simple.) Ultimately, less Simpleton Eric, means more Alcide and Sam. Whoo hoo. Team Not Vampires. Wait a sec… what has happened to me?!?!?! Darn you, Ball!

WC: Alcide speaks! A lot! …and does burly manly things in his tank top. #approved

EC: See above. That equals a very happy me. I hope that Alcide’s going to take down that greasy hair werewolf who attacked Sa…I mean irritating little Sam brother, Tommy.

That reminds me…should Sookie be at least a bit concerned that Sam FIRED her. The girl has no income, but living off vampires. Ugh. 

I really want Sookie and Alcide in a relationship. They are veering so far away from the books that this could definitely happen. Please, let this happen!!!

Let's give this romance a chance!

WC: Debbie Does Deceit. What is she up to with the witch pseudo alliance? I hope someone *cough cough* kills her off soon.

EC: Debbie is not the sharpest tool in the shed, you know, she’s mean and dumb. I am so annoyed that Debbie’s still on this show. Fingers crossed that she is gone by the end of the season. 

WC: So when Sam takes the horsey camping, how is this a good idea? To be out in the open WOODS when you are “taking a vacation” from a werewolf, who runs in the woods?

EC: I kind of like Shifter Mommy. She’s seems like a good mom/school teacher with really questionable choices in men. I have no idea why she would ever find Greasy Wolf attractive. He’s gross. The only thing I don’t like is that Sam can’t rekindle a relationship with Tara right now. He’s good for Tara, for heavens sakes he became a BUNNY for the little girl. Tara needs a man sensitive enough to shift into a bunny. It was too cute.

WC: So Eric is trying to Kill Bill, Sookie’s warning him, and I can’t wait to see a good Beeeeeeeel/ Air-rick fight. Hopefully Bill will beat the Fang out of him, and when I say Fang I mean amnesia.

EC: We can only hope that Bill succeeds and we can get the normal Eric back. Oh and Pam’s face from falling off. Her face is way too much like a zombie’s and I hate zombie movies. They are too scary and Pam’s face is giving me nightmares! 

Or they can kiss and make up!

WC: Bring back the viking! …and Jesus’ dad. (Was that out loud?)

EC: Jesus’s dad? Yuck! What’s wrong with you? Eric goes simpleton and you latch on to any dark character you can find? You need a good dose of Vampire Diaries and their good looking evil STAT! Damon and Klaus…much better.
SWD: LOL, EC. Too true!

EC likes her bad guys pretty, not creepy and old. When is VampDi coming back on?

Embracing the Guilty Pleasure…Another Vampire Diaries Convert

Posted in Letters to Twilight, True Blood, Twilight, Vampire Diaries, Vampires with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 17, 2011 by talksupe

Hey pretty lady! We can rock historical costumes like that Jasper can. Who's the real confederate now?

 

What’s Happens When You Leave Forks? Head Right Over to Mystic Falls!

EC: We love talking to you all about our favorite shows, books and movies! We REALLY love when you send us posts about them! One of our favorite people, Team Jacob Edward writes to tell us about her new found enjoyment of our friends from Mystic Falls! (Just wait until she watches, Season 2! Actually, she needs to catch up now! We need her to watch Season 3 in real time with us!)

Dear Talk Supe…. do you guys do entries in letter form?  Or is that weird?  Oh well, I’m going with it.
 
I finally lost my VD/VampDi/Vampire Diaries/Whatever virginity last week.
 
Per the prompting of many, but mostly from the enthusiasm from EC Stacey, I purchased the first season of Vampire Diaries some time ago.  I almost immediately watched about ½ the first episode, but I wasn’t sucked (ha) into it immediately and that was it for awhile, as it then sat collecting dust—until late last week that is.

Silly girl! This guy can never collect dust!

 
My husband went on a hunting trip (you know, the non-vampire kind of hunting) and I wasn’t in the reading or writing mood that first night he was gone.  The kids were in bed, and I decided that meant I should watch something that my husband would surely not ever want to watch with me.  Immediately I thought of watching the A&E version of Pride & Prejudice or running the gamut of the three Twilight movies.  But then I remembered the Vampire Diaries DVDs of the first season that I’d purchased and decided to at least get my money’s worth by watching the dang thing.
 
I can’t tell you the exact moment I was hooked, but what I can tell you is that for the entirety of those days, I got WAY too little sleep, my kids received too little interaction with their mother (they did a lot of playing outside (thank goodness it was nice out)… and were allowed to watch an extra movie or two… bad mom) and I was actually glad I am not working at the present moment because it meant more VD watching opportunities.  (Shame.  Oh, the shame.)
 

Distracting mommies since 2009

I still can’t say that I love VD more than Twilight.  Twilight, I think will always be in its own special place that nothing else will ever really touch.  But VD definitely contained some of the same crack that Twilight has, as I kept watching “just one more” episode until they were gone.
 
The thing that makes this important is:  I AM NOT A VAMPIRE PERSON!
 
I hear your disbelief, because (despite my love-split name) I love Twilight and Edward and, well, Edward is a vampire.  Yes, yes, I know that’s true but really I’m not a vampire person.  When I was told by a friend that I just HAVE to read Twilight, as soon as I heard it was a love story between a human girl and a vampire, my nose crinkled and I stopped listening.  If it weren’t for feeling obligated to at least give the story a shot since that friend had loaned the book to me by practically shoving it into my arms insisting I read the thing, I would have missed out on my favorite (albeit, irrationally favorite) story.

Do you really still love me more? I might be...BOTHERED!

 

You stole my line...BOTHERED!

 
So, after I devoured the Twilight series, I tried to put aside my prejudice and be more open about other books involving vampires.  I read the Almost Human series that had been described as “an adult Twilight.”  To my credit, I read the entire Trilogy.  It was okay, I’d recommend it to someone who’s into vampire books, but I found myself cheering for the girl to end up with the human guy over the vampire guy.
 
Not giving up, I borrowed Interview with a Vampire, by Anne Rice.  I think that was probably two years ago now…. I still haven’t been able to find it in me to read past the first page, it’s still on my bookshelf, and I’ve actually forgotten who I’ve borrowed it from.
 
Then, I broke down and watched the first season of True Blood after many recommendations to watch it.  I liked it.  It was okay.  But again, I found myself disappointed as I was unable to “fall” for Bill, the vampire that Sookie found so irresistible.  Again, it was okay, but the vampires were altogether too creepy to me to be desirable.  That being said, I did like it enough that I wouldn’t be opposed to watching the next season. (So, kind of progress, right?)

Oh Sookie! Why do they not love me as much as Edward, Stefan and mostly Damon?

 
I’ve read other books with vampires in them too, like the Mortal Instruments series.  Which although it’s about Nephellim, it has vampires in it.  The vampires in the Mortal Instruments books just mostly weirded me out.  (Though, the book that just came out did warm me up to one a bit.  So a bit more progress, maybe?)
 
I also read A Discovery of Witches (recommended by none other than EC Stacey, herself).  Again, I liked it.  Actually, I liked it a LOT.  And I was ticked off where the book ended, knowing that I’m going to have to wait an entire YEAR until the next one comes out. But the reason I liked the book so much, was not because of the vampire guy in it.  It was because of the main character, her powers and her discovery of her powers in the 2nd half of the book.  I was enchanted by all the things that witches in general could do.  But the main vampire guy/love interest, Matthew?  Eh, he was okay.   I liked him well enough and all.  Actually better than any of the other vampires in the other failed attempts I’d had, but I still didn’t feel that draw to him.  (Again, progress, but not quite there.)

Hey Luca…Forks needs some witches! Wait a minute, they have Rosalie! Actually, she’s a ‘B’ word that rhymes with witch.

Oh no, you didn't!

 

So I was shocked when I realized that I was a little obsessed with the Vampire Diaries.  Let’s just say this up front, I still don’t feel about Stefan or Damon the way I feel about Edward, but I do like them a lot (breakthrough!).  And I’m ALL for (haha, I almost wrote Katherine) Elena becoming a vampire (like I was for Bella in Twilight = another breakthrough!). I’m actually rooting for it. (Woah!)  And I’m so full of questions and I have so many things I could discuss; like Bonnie and the huge chip on her shoulder she acquired after she came back from the funeral or Caroline making all us blondes seem shallow and airheaded (I may have dark hair at the moment, but I am a natural blonde) or WHEN DID I START ROUTING FOR DAMON INSTEAD OF AGAINST HIM?????  How the HELL did that happen?!?!  Maybe I’ll write about that some time… there are so many things I could say about Damon and Stefan… and Damon.  🙂

Look into our eyes...you want to be our biggest fan. Oh...and buy EC Stacey that purple dress. (EC: Just kidding! But, no I really do want that dress!)

 
But, after many failed attempts with finding love for non-Twilight vampires, I find myself kind of there again.  (And it feels great!)  Now I’m just impatiently waiting for season 2 to come out on DVD, to catch up to the rest of you and then be rationed out episodes on a weekly basis too.  (It’s better that way for me… String along the hits so I don’t OD on the VD crack).  What I don’t understand is; what is it about this TV series captured my interest about vampires when so many other shows and books failed?  I have some thoughts, and I think I know what my husband would say, but I’d like to hear your theories.

But Breaking Dawn is coming! Darn television and it's multiple seasons!

But our season starts in September! People have to wait for November for you!

 
Longwindedly Befuddled,
TeamJacobEdward/TJE

A big thank you, to Team Jacob Edward! We can’t wait for her to write more for us! Let her know in the comments what a great letter she wrote and YOUR feeling about Vampire Diaries and Twilight. Oh and to make things even more interesting for your DVR’s…

True Blood starts in June!

The Epic Tale of Blacksmith Tyler or…

The Gigantic Vampire Diaries Recap-alooza

posted by EC Stacey and WC Stacey (SWD)
“Aww…Girly Wolf, we hardly knew ya!

*Spoilers for those of you that been even more busy than us to watch! * I was watching the Hallmark Channel…umm…I mean accidentially turned to it when flipping to…ahh…Conan. That’s it, CONAN. When I came upon one of the fifty, Love Comes Softly tv movies. The first one starred a widowed Katherine Heigel (from Grey’s Anatomy, before she started starring in ridiculous Romantic Comedies. I use both of those words loosely.) who while in the wilds of the Prairie met herself a widower. He saved her…married her and blah, blah, blah. Then they made a million more of these things with her decendants. While I was gagging at, I mean watching Hilary Duff’s sister (Hi there, random and really bad casting!), who did I see but our wolf boy Tyler…playing a smiley blacksmith! I was mesmerized by this nice blacksmith being played by Pissy, and to my astonishment, I liked him! So when Tyler reappeared on Vampire Diaries, I was…happy. Before we start the recap…I am going to eat my words. I like Tyler now. Stop smirking to yourselves. Seriously. Stop. It. I am not kidding here, people. I will take it back. Please, let us not discuss this again!

It's my new favorite blacksmith!

Alright…let’s get back to the recapping, by doing it in sections! ELIJAH

Things that could have been...so sad...

First, that picture above is WHAT SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED! It would have been fantastic, awesome and given Alaric something more to do than become cheesy Klaus. Plus I love that jacket she’s wearing. Instead, we get Elijah’s epic tale of loving Katherine and getting all attracted to our buddy, Elena. (Come on now…another admirer? Can we please hook a Bonnie up? With someone that isn’t Whiny.)
How did we leave things with our maybe sort of good, sort of bad friend with the floppy hair? Saving his stupid brother. It’s like they are the old school Stefan and Damon. Only one isn’t in touch with his inner Edward Cullen and the other is just a chauvanistic wind bag. (Talking to you Klaus!)
SWD: What’s with Elijah’s accent? What’s it supposed to be… Do we just classify it as the vague vampire standard “Old Language”. Klaus is clearly British, and their bros.. so why is Elijah speaking angsty mumblish?

KLAUS

Bow down peasents and admire my beautiful Golden Retriever wig!

The question of this season’s big bad Klaus could be, “Is he truly a scary bad guy?” He is an obnoxious one. That is true. But is he scary enough to have our heroine quaking in her designer boots? Let’s look at the gold standard, BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER (the tv show) to answer this important question. For you young’uns, I suggest renting it on Netflixs or searching for the rerun, because it is that good. You see, every season they had some great and creepy villians, while keeping up with the romance and teen angst. Trust me, Vampire Diaries is close to that and is a far better than the sad attempt at villians terrorizing the good people of Forks. (James and Victoria? Oh please. And the Volturi? The scariest thing about them is their wardrobe and love of scarfs. Like Damon’s ex girlfriend! hee hee.) The difference is that BUFFY wasn’t afraid to make their bad guys scary looking! The bad guys of Mystic Falls look like they just got back from manscaping at the local salon. (A nice pedicure and highlights for Klaus, please! Oh and he would like a lemon slice in his glass of blood!) Give me a scar, burn or anything, to make him seem bad. Pretty please?
SWD: I’m with you. I get confused when the baddies are ‘scaped and clothed properly. With Klaus, however, he looks like my college boyfriend, sans blue doc martens and baggy rave clothes. So I have no problem associating him with evil.
CAROLINE AND THE CASE OF THE SWITCHING PERSONALITIES
“Okay, so which one of you is the jerk and who’s the nice guy? I am so confused!”

Just like Nancy Drew, our Caroline is left figuring out what happened to the personalities of her two suitors! Pissy got a soul and has been quite charming. (Must be channeling his inner Hallmark Channel blacksmith) While Matt has been taking pissy to whole new level of pouting, huffing and stomping his feet. What’s a girl to do? Well…not talk to her mom, because she just might stake her. SWD: I think Caroline needs to seek some older council… say in the form of Alaric. He has a history of his girlfriends turning vamp, and she already is one. However he also has a history of his vampire luvahs ending up dead. I can’t handle it if Caroline dies. I will miss her wardrobe too much.

BONNIE, TEENAGE WITCH, EPISODE ?: HOW TO MAKE A BOYFRIEND DISAPPEAR

I wish. Instead we get…

Remember at the beginning of a romance when everybody wore cute shirts?

Then….

 

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

I'm just going to whine in your face until you cave or turn me into a frog

SWD: I did enjoy the “Witch-Off” between Bonnie and that other witch. All that fire and brimstone. All that was missing was the Carmina Burana.

THE (OTHER) BROTHERS ANGST

"Remember the good old days when we would kick around the old ball and wear funny hats?"

The boys continued to beat each other up, pine over Elena and try to sacrifice themselves for love. Klaus kicked poor Stefan’s butt. Damon force feed Elena. (I know she’s a thin girl, Damon, but wouldn’t a hamburger work better?) Oh…and Damon got bit by our buddy Tyler. That’s what I call a bad day for the boys! At least they weren’t mourning their lady, BUT… SWD: Edward Cullen would be so proud of his emo buddy Stefan pulling a martyr move to save his beloved! You know, I think Rob may even email Paul about. Hint hint, EC. Here’s what I think, with his new wolf-y bite (my inner mom totally wanted to doctor his owe-ie up with a Hello Kitty Band-Aid and a popsicle) Damon will also become a hybrid and defeat Klaus. BODY COUNT

It
We will miss you Sark…I mean Elena’s Daddy. You turned out to be a pretty good guy. You should have let Jeremy do it.
SWD: See, I didn’t watch ALIAS (right?), so I don’t know his Sark-i-ness. I just know him as closer talker John and he gives me the heebe jeebes. So I didn’t mourn his dirt face plant.

See ya, Dad!

Jenna had potential. Potential and a kickin’ wardrobe. Another example of replacing Jeremy instead of her! Plus, just think of all the missed opportunities with Alaric and Elijah. There is always room for more love triangles. (Chick Flick 101)

SWD: *mumbles* Now that she’s dead, can I have her boyfriend wardrobe? *Thinks* This sounds familliar… I have multiple attacks of wardrobe envy towards this show. And Klaus, I’m a little upset that you put a stake hole in Jenna’s cute jacket. One suffers for fashion, not the other way around. That poor little jacket didn’t need to be sacrificed too.

Plus wolf girl above. Poor Jules, you snarly little thing!
And the sister witch. Who didn’t deserve to be saved by her brother and dad.

This puppy:

Brady.

Also, can we not forget…
How did you pop up on here? Miss you, Uncle Mason!
Just one last time before tonight’s season finale…

So sad!!!!!

Celebrity Theater: Paul Plans a Party

Paul aka Stefan, might be my favorite. In that, when I write for him, I imagine him to be the best little brother ever. (I always wanted a little brother) Is he really like the way picture him? Probably not. But enjoy this little story of Paul planning a party for his friends…

P.S…This isn’t at all,not even a little bit real. Just in case you were confused.

"To create the perfect party, you'll need a few things: Martha Stewart Entertaining, a signature fruity cocktail and tapas! It's going to be legendary!"

Neil: That guy seriously needs to step away from my catch phrase!

"Shh...Don't forget the flower arrangements, Nina. Orchids and Gerber Daisies. They'll be the hit of the party!"

"Dude,don't forget to put out the recycling bins! I don't care if the blue clashes with your color scheme. Ohh...I'll bring some organic hummus, pita chips and fine honeys."

"Another Paul party? Please don't tell me it's another Murder Mystery Weekend. He threw a hissy fit when all the guys decided to watch the Celtics play the Lakers instead."

"Oh yeah! I love going to a fly party! I'll bring the wine coolers! This is so exciting! I am totally Team Edward!"

That's Twilight! I don't sparkle and drive a Volvo. What the he...

"Don't worry mates,I'll be there! Can't have a party without the Brit Pack! Aziz, let's do some karaoke of Jay Z!"

"That'll be dope!"

"100 Monkey's will totally play your party, Paul!"

"Wait...what...I was just going to put a Dave Matthews playlist on my IPod!"

"Come on, Paul! Dave has nothing on us. We played the same song for 45 minutes. With a bongo. Now that's what I call music!"

"I tried to tell him no, Paul! Jackson looked so sad. Like I kicked his puppy. Just let them play one song...45 minutes? You have to be kidding me!"

"Paul's having a party? I didn't get invited again! These guys have a bias against guys playing wolves. I'll call Taylor and see if he wants to meet me at the arcade."

"Umm...Paul...you did tell everybody that this is a costume party? Right? Paul?"

Being Human, American Style! Episode 2

Bringing the Sweaters, Supernatural Style!

What does he have to do with Being Human, good ol'USA? You'll see...

I must admit, when watching Being Human, Yankee Edition, I get distracted. Not by pretty things, because Mitchell isn’t in this one. It’s how my mind wanders, for instance, when seeing the Annie sweater on Sally, that I want one too. Then thanks to the ‘reporting’ of our sorority sister, Feat Lil J that the show is set in Boston. Which leads me to think with a quick trip on the highway I can be in Boston. Take in the sites, wander through Harvard yard, go to an awesome Irish pub/restaurant that I enjoyed with my hubby during our courting stage. You know, romantic warm fuzzies. Then something violent happens on Being Human USA and I am thrust back into the show.

Why is this? Well, I imagine it’s because I have seen it before. With accents. Which doesn’t mean that I am not enjoying it, but I do miss the original. It’s kind of like watching all the different film adaptations of Pride and Prejudice, then remembering how much you love the Colin Firth movie. It’s not that you don’t like the other ones, it’s just you miss Colin Firth.

Wait a minute...I like Matthew Macfadyen's Darcy too!

SWD: Oh Stace, I ‘ve never been to Boston and have always wanted to go. Maybe we could do a  Being Human tour 2012. Speaking of Annie’s sweaters… wait, are we still calling them Annie’s sweaters on the yankee edition? Let’s, because “Sally Sweaters” sounds too Nick Jr.,  like a ditzy character that should be in the Laurie Berkner band or something. Back to the sweaters. I wore mine today, in honor of our post. Also did you notice at the end when Sally was floating down the stairs the lyrics to the song were “….wearing a sweater”. SyFy knows the power of the wool.

EC: Sorry…lost track there…Being Human…right…

 
 
 

You know you couldn't resist watching episode two!Look... It's Acts Like A Pouty Teen Wolf!

 

Saved By The Vamp – Aidan Style

So Josh’s big secret was discovered by his sister, due to Aidan’s super save the day actions. Let’s give that boy a cape! He was able to swallow the blood lust and be there for his friend. An admirable trait for the “good vampires”. But…riddle me this…how was Josh’s sister so easily able to see her brother writhing around in a cellar in pain and not want to get him to a doctor? Even if she bought Aidan’s excuse, “He’s crazy!” You would think she would call her parents due to the fact that their mom was loco too. Color me confused.

SWD: I didn’t get it either. Do you think he Glamored/compelled/Dazzled/ whatever they’re calling vamp hypnotism on this show. Also, do we know yet how they can day walk? Will we find out later?

Josh’s cardigan

Dear Stefan, THIS is how a supe wears a cardi. Why does it work on Josh and not Stefan? Because Josh is kind of adorkable and that’s what a cardigan says (said by girl  currently wearing a cardigan). Stefan is too calm, cool, and collected for this conservative garment. For his preppier moods, Stefan needs more of this: but his wardrobe intervention will be another post.

Sally, Sally, Sally…You Can Do SO Much Better

For those of you who HAVE not watched the British version, I will not spoil the reason that Miss Sally is still lurking around the grungy apartment. (Like those who lurk around the blog and don’t comment. Teasing. I adore you lurkers.) I will, however, put this into your head. First…why is Danny so darn annoying? Just keep that in the back of your head while viewing. Also, why didn’t Sally and Danny put some fresh paint up in their crib. Seriously, that is a depressing color in that place. Quick! Aidan, Josh get your supernatural painting powers on and lighten up that place!

SWD: No kidding, wasn’t Home Depot open on move-in day? They couldn’t pick up a gallon of Sunset Sunrise Splash? Danny kind of seems like a sunset magic kind of guy. Oh, and pick up some light bulbs for that dark hallway while they’re at it. Or maybe a baby gate or some glow tape at the top of the stairs. Maybe a nightlight in the hallway. We have dangerous stairs too. So steep my dog goes down on three legs because he’s going so fast. #great4kids

 She’s Back…And Not A Nice Young Lady

That’s right, Aidan’s clean up crew didn’t clean up his mess. Instead, they took it home, gave it sharp teeth and sent it off to make an even bigger mess for the gang.  Umm…was her name Amanda…you know the redhead…

She's a maneater...literally!

 

First, she tries to eat Josh, but true to Twilight and every other supe show, the wolves are downright stinky. Lucky Josh. Unfortunately, for annoying, can’t take a hint nurse girl or newest vamp was still hungry. Well…not annoying anymore.  Not actually anything.

SWD: She’s rather trampy too. We all know from Horror Movies 101 that the slutty chick is the first to get offed. Um, that didn’t sound right. But you know what I mean. There is a dissertation on this in Scream. 

 
 

SCARY!

 

Jaco…I Mean Bishop Is Still Scary

Mark Pelligrino is downright frightening. In a v-neck sweater even. I liked Lost’s Jacob, but he was creeptastic on Supernatural. I wouldn’t want his cop to pull me over for speeding. I don’t think the fine will be a ticket.

SWD: He IS creepy…. like windowless white van  driving creepy.

Overall Impressions of Numero 2

Well, it was scary and creepy. The characters are growing on me. So…I’ll see you next week Being Human! Ohh…new Vampire Diaries tonight! Yee ha! Also…guess what’s playing on BBC3…Being Human Series 3! Cannot Wait!!!

See you next time!

What did you think? Tell us in the comments! Excited about tonight’s Vampire Diaries?

SWD: I am I am!
