True Blood Season Finale…

ALAN BALL, WHAT DID YOU DO!!!!!

When I was about to think that True Blood was going to go out with a wimper it went out with a bang! Two of them in fact. I must add that I wasn’t exactly pleased by these developments, yet they sure were surprising and exciting! Let’s just get to the most important parts…

Good bye Jesus!!! That’s right, the poor guy was killed off in another show. (RIP, Detective in Southland) By the character’s possessed boyfriend. Layfette is going to need therapy on this one!

Worst date ever!

Marnie was sent off with Sookie’s grandmother, where ever dead people go in True Blood. I was hoping something more dramatic. But it seems that Jesus will be hanging around and haunting Layfette due to his medium abilities. Which sure will put a damper on any future relationships. (Which reminds me of Jeremy, of Vampire Diaries, issues. It’s starting to get annoying how these show are mimicing each other.)

Bill and Eric were almost vampire BBQ, which would have put a damper on their budding bromance. Which will now be more possible that Sookie kicked them to the curb!

Nope to King Bill. Royality is such a bossy pain sometimes.

Nope, Simpleton Eric and Snarky Eric. Loving one vampire is enough without dealing with multiple personalities!

Hello, Handsome! Sookie's head is quite taken with your hero personality and those...abs.

Noel from Felicity stops by, but not as Quinn! If you are to have an actor like Scott Foley, you give him a BIG ROLE. Not one that centers on Terry, Arlene and Andy. One that hooks him up with Sookie. It’s Noel, people! He didn’t end up with Felicity, he should at least get some action with the lead heroine of this show!

Why doesn't Felicity...I mean Sookie...want me?

Looks like our favorite psychopathic king is coming back!

Welcome back, King Crazy!

Sam buried a brother and gained a family…and a crazy mother wannabe. Also, didn’t know until now that Sam’s shirts are also available for funerals. Hmm.

Jason gets beat up, but manages to get a lady.

Jason gets the girl, but loses the boy

Finally, Tara… not everyboy’s favorite, but I always liked her. Couldn’t Ball at least let her have some happiness and… a relationship with Sam. Tara kept saving Sookie this season and all she gets in a bullet in the brain! Is she really dead? In the hospital? Will someone turn her into a vampire? Will Layfette have constant companions with the ghostly Tara and Jesus? I could imagine their running commentary on his outfits right now! (That would be pretty funny!)

Real friends will take a bullet for you, even after you keep defending the vampire that's always trying to kill that friend. Poor Tara!

At least, no more Debbie! (yay!)

Freedom, Alcide! Freedom!!!!

Can’t wait for next summer! Already counting down the days!

Mr. Pattinson…It’s Time For Your Hair Intervention! Comic Con Edition

Remember the Good Old Days?

What Was the Scariest Thing at Comic Con?

This is not the good old days...this is a cry for help

EC: Robert…Robert…Robert…what are we going to with you? Cosmopolis has wrapped,so there should be no need to have that disturbing mess on your head. Supposedly, you want to be taken seriously as an actor. I get that. I really do. BUT, and this is a big BUT (and I cannot lie. *giggle* Sorry I just channeled some old school rap, because that hair style is so ridiculous, I’m regressing into my inner 13 year old.), no one can take anyone seriously wearing an ode to the band Flock of Seagulls on their head. (Flock of Seagulls, you ask? Well Rob, I was young when they were popular too. Just watch VH1’s Remember the 80’s! You can so learn so much that really should be forgotten. Like those hideous 80’s neon sunglasses, that I have been seeing everywhere this summer. Ugh. #thingsthatshouldremainburied

SWD: So much eighties stuff is in style. Since I do “Remember the eighties (or eh-ies as my cronies fondly speak of them) I had neon glasses, and strange haircuts and I wanted to be a Go-Go. I wish I’d held on to my oversized earrings and pegged skinny jeans, I could have made some dough on e-bay, #authenticVintage

EC: Now I am assuming that the unfortunate hairstyle is due to the Cosmopolis film. I haven’t read the book, since I am now reading The Help (ahem fan fiction). Diving into the world of racial inequality of the 1950’s South. (Just admit it…reading fan fiction, where Bella is actually awesome). You know IMPORTANT literature. (Fan fiction.) However, is it possible that Paul Giamatti decided to shave “the pretty boy” (that’d be you) after getting “the pretty boy” drunk on Merlot? Because everybody knows, Paul hates that Merlot! #thingslearnedforwatchingSideways)

You're going down, pretty boy!Get these two to Banana Republic or at least Target. No more Thrift Stores!

SWD: Off topic: Did you see “Bottle Shock?” I liked it better than Sideways (eye candy and the girl has cute 70’s shirts and boots)

EC: Here’s my question…do you think its a good idea to keep one side long, while trying to grow the other side back? Why not just cut the other side to match? (SWD: I vote mohawk, I ALWAYS vote mohawk *winks at young Ian and Rehvenge)EC: Do you want to match Kristen’s questionable black bra/white teeshirt look? That’s just you two taking the white trash look to a whole new level.

SWD: Colored bra+ sheer shirt = 80’s for the 10’s. I grew up in the age of early Madonna and Cyndi Lauper. The sheer was mesh, so I think LeStew is actually, classing the look up. Now if it were the iconic Madonna cone bra… we’d have another story.

Here at Talk Supe,we are here to help! Here is some helpful suggestions!

Water for Elephants:

EC: Just cut it short. You really did look nice in this movie.

Much better. Plus you would stop looking like a patient in the psych ward.

The Vampire Diaries Cast @ Comic Con:

EC: They sometimes have some confusing clothing choices, but more times then not they look good. Most important, their hair looks great!

You can have fun with your style and still look good. Just stay away from tiny hats! Ahem…Somerhalder.

SWD: The entire cast of VampDi has amazing hair. Always.

Wait, did I say that? Did I forget Klaus’ Elizabethan wig or early Elijah’s good boy hair? Well they both look good in the end.

True Blood Cast @ Comic Con:

EC: They are adults. Even if they are the same age as you, they act like adults. You are 25, Robert. Observe how grown ups dress at work. (Okay, slightly more fashionable then in an office, but still professional/attractive.)

SWD: Hold on, this is True Blood were talking about. When do they actually “dress” for work, unless it’s the “sock of destiny” #notComplaining

They clean up nice after all the dirty stuff happening in Bon Temps

SWD: Looking good, Joe’s so lovely I’m not even noticing the “v” is going into Stefan territory

Always a lovely and classy couple.

Robert, meet your style icon.


SWD: I’m sorry EC, did you say something. I got distracted.^

And speaking of socks…

Fun with Socks = Good, Crazy with Hair = Bad

Supernatural @ Comic Con

EC: Sam and Dean not only can bring cool to casual, but they can kick butt. Learn this and you can get great new acting gigs!

These boys can work the hair and the Sam's Shirts!

 SWD: That IS a Sam shirt.. Alcide wore it last episode, and Sam wore it last season. Love it!
EC: We have so much hope for you, Rob. This intervention is for your own good. Now we just need to work on your umm…interesting…clothing choices.

Alright, I'll admit it. Just start listening to Taylor.

True Blood Recap: Gettin’ An Eyeful, True Blood Style

Posted in True Blood with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 22, 2011 by talksupe
posted by EC Stacey

Today’s installment of the True Blood recap is brought to you by…

SAM'S SHIRTS. Short or long sleeved you can't go wrong with a Sam's Shirt. Don't shift without one!

EC:  There was a lot of development in this past Sunday’s episode, so let’s get to MY favorite part…drunken, simple-minded Eric. Sure, he can’t remember anything, but not only did Eric inherit Jason’s ridiculous looking sleeveless hoodie, he also now has gained Jason’s cluelessness. Yes, I miss bad boy Eric. (As does Team Seth) However, this is a fun bit of distraction to see Alexander play a goof ball. It’s not only refreshing, but makes me giggle. Particularly, the drunken gooseing of Miss Stackhouse. Who knew that fairy blood equals the same buzz of a six pack of Bud Light. (Cause they are down south, y’all.) It also inspires this:

SWD: My fav line,” Croccccccccoooooooddddiiiiiiiloooooos” said in menacing crazy Viking voice. This is soo book Eric, even down to the wearing of Jason’s old sweatshirts. Or wait, did Sookie pick up Eric some clothes from Walmart? Either way, Viking sheriff in Gildan is funny. I’m thinking the black tanks of previous seasons were American Apparel. They go uber low with the U necks. Just ask VD’s Stefan.

It's like talking to a very tall toddler

EC:  Also, the added Alcide bonus…  

Fun at the creek during the summer, Bon Temps style

EC:  I mean come on now, Ball is an evil mastermind! This scene is the reason that the female demographic for these types of shows and movies are so high. It certainly isn’t the gore factor. No, it’s the shirtless men…umm…I mean romance! That’s it…romance! The scene with Sookie, Alcide and Eric was pretty funny. Which is good, because the rest of it was an angst fest. Starting with Debbie getting ready to jump back on the crazy train. At least we had an almost Sookie/Eric kiss!

SWD: Sookie looked so cute in that scene too! I want her green mini jacket.  Friend of a friend has 4 large, menacing dogs (rott, shepherd, etc.) and a chihuahua. The chihuahua OWNS them. It reminds me of Sookie and her pack of alphas.

EC: Pam gets a face lift. Or is it face melt? It looked painful. Now we know that hippie Marnie is possessed by a very pissed off ancient witch. Being burned at the stake will do that to a girl. #lessonslearnedfromSalem. Massachusetts that is. Not #lessonslearnedfromDaysofourLivesSalem. However, both Days of Our Lives and True Blood had characters that were possessed. Plus, True Blood is pretty much a gory soap opera. Now they should just have Sami Brady do a crossover.

SWD: That freaked me out! Poltergeist flashbacks!

Pam, if you were interested in getting some work done, I would have suggested a certified plastic surgeon.

EC:  Oh Bill…Bill…Bill…you went from your dream girl, Sookie to your great, great, great granddaughter. Dude, that’s messed up. Must be good to be king. Not! Karma is going to be biting you on the bottom. Look, it already did! Sookie wouldn’t let you look for Eric in her house. That’s right, she’s going to leave you for a Viking! Oh and the grandmother from WHO’S THE BOSS is flirting with you. Oh where, oh where, is Tony Danza when you need him?

SWD: Mona! The original cougar… still going strong and chatting up Bill. Oh wait, he’s older. Betty White needs to be on True Blood. She could be Octavia!

Well this was a bad idea, Bill.

EC:  There was a bunch of shifter drama. Sam’s lady has a kid and a crazy ex. Who happens to be a werewolf. Of course. Couldn’t they just make the guy a crazy dentist or something? Maybe, a demented florist? Change things up a bit? Oh and more Tommy. Being that his dead beat parents put him on a steel chain leash, I don’t think will be getting away from Tommy for awhile. Ugh.

SWD: You KNOW Sam’s going to save him. Take him back in, buy him shirts.

Worst T.V. Parents of the Year Winners 2011

EC:  Poor Hoyt. His relationship with Jessica was already on shaky ground. It’s never a good thing when Jess decides to get relationship advice from PAM. It leads to naughty decisions like snacking on young men in the women’s bathroom. Seriously, that is not at all hygenic. It’s not like she’s a Edward Cullen type personality. If he was real, Edward would be carrying in sanitizing wipes and Purell. Which is funny, because he’s already dead.

SWD: Hoyt/Crystal hook up?

EC: Jessica’s saved Jason’s life with her blood. You know what that means…Jason and Jessica hook up ahead! (Which I am kind of loving!) Anything to het him away from crazy panther chick. All that inbreeding has made her a nut. It’s not going to end well. Mostly for Hoyt. He is definitely going to be moving back in with his Momma.  

SWD: Jason’s crzy “V” dreams are going to be insane@!

Let's all remember the good times, because they sure aren't going to last much longer

EC: I have a bad feeling that poor baby is going to be blamed for the evil doings of that creepy doll. Actually, what the heck is wrong with Terry and Arlene? That doll is nasty! Can you imagine the germs? Who cares if it’s evil. They should have a least put that thing in the washing machine or the fire place. That would be responsible parenting!

SWD: And I thought Cabbage Patch Dolls were creepy, but that thing?! Give me a Chuckie doll anyday.

Even Hoyt shouldn't be touching that nasty thing and he's a grown up!

You’ve Got Mail (Fake Celebrity Email Theater): Paul Plans a True Blood Viewing Party

The season premiere of True Blood is upon us and it’s time for our buddy Paul to throw on his apron, polish the silver and make decorative floral arrangements for a party. A True Blood viewing party. It really doesn’t get any better than this…

DISCLAIMER: You know the drill, kids…this isn’t real. These email addresses DO NOT belong to any of these individuals. Though it would be hilarious if they did. Also, I do not think any of the actors mentioned act in any way like we write them. In fact, I have a sneaky suspicion they are all outstanding and intelligent individuals, that hopefully have a huge sense of humor. It’s just funnier to write this way. Also, can you imagine all of these people watching True Blood together…the possibilities are endless.

Good morning Paul, old man!

Thank you for the lovely invitation! Tom and I would love to come join you, but do I actually have to watch the show? It looks quite frightening and I have a sneaky suspicion that Ian would try to hide in corners and jump out at me which would scare me further. Did you know that they sell True Blood at the liquor store? I was picking up a six-pack of Heineken and there it was, mocking me with its scary red font. I shudder to think of my embarrassment if I have to hide in my pillow at your pad.

Paul, dude! Heading to Whole Foods to get the ingredients for my infamous garlic humus and a big bag of pita chips. Need me to grab anything else? There’s a fine honey that works in the produce section all covered in mystical tattoos, dreadlocks and smells like patchouli. I am going to try and get her digits.

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!

Gawd you Queens! We’re men, the only thing we care about in regards to the wedding dress is how to get around all the stupid layers.

They’re not throwing rice are they? They know it’s bad for the birds, when they eat it their stomachs explode.

Bubbles are better.

Jax, so crass. They’re totally DTF I’m not going to dignify that with a response. I …uh-oh.. Kate just looked at me. You know, THAT look. The one that I get from every female and some dudes on the planet Twilight set stalkers. She’s, uh, hitching up her dress! She’s pulling off her garter! She’s waving it over her head and pointing at me. She just nailed me with it and moaned “elephants!!!!!!!!”.  Oh no, Oh God,  the royal guard is getting ready to tackle me, got to run! Later chaps

It is nice to have a little peace though. I’m quite safe. My cell mate is Team Jacob. Oh sh*t, he just said he meant Jankowski.

Outlander update

Posted in Outlander series, Talk Supe Book Club with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 11, 2011 by talksupe
posted by snowwhitedrifted (West Coast Stacey/ SWD) and East Coast Stacey

..It’s been finished by both of us (yay!)

SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS!!

Back in September, we started this book. I’ve (SWD) now read all but the last book (Echo in the Bone), and I am fangirling all over this series. EC is ready for book 2 (maytheforcebewithyou, Stace). EC Stace and I need to discuss it, since we didn’t while we were reading it.

EC: I did it! I read the whole thing! I know it took me a LONG time, but if you are reading at night and are extremely tired sometimes you have to reread the Scottish dialogue several times. That or I might be a bit dense. Probably the second.


OK, this post will need some visuals. Sooo, ladies, choose your weapon Jamie. I did 10 minutes googling and visiting my outlander purgatory
massive amounts of research finding all of the popular Young Jamie options:

Andy Whitfield, Channing Tatum, Chris Hemsworth, Gabriel Aubry, Jensen Ackles, Josh Holloway, Sean Bean, David Wenham, Max Martini, Gerard Butler, Prince Harry, artistic rendition, Zach Roering (yes, that

SWD: *Thinks* Should I print that out and turn it into a bookmark? I think this might be my “Friends” “laminated” list.
Well, Gabriel Aubry seems to be the most popular choice, but he’s part of my V’lane (Fever series) amalgam (more on that in a future post). Let’s see, I’m going with Chris Hemsworth. Because he’s Thor, but then Andy Whitfield is Spartacus…and #swordskills…

EC: Jensen Ackles. That’s it! He’s the one. Dean from Supernatural would make a great Jamie and who I imagined the whole time. I also imagined him driving in a classic muscle car, instead of riding a horse. I perhaps might not be the best judge of these things.

And we need to pick Jamie’s hunting kilt. Here is the Frasser of Lovat kilt

Furry Sporran included

but we don’t see that one until later. What would Jamie wear while he’s incognito?

kilt me

SWD: I choose number 1, because I like dogs. And just like choosing wine, I always pick ones with animals on the labels.

EC: Look at all those kilts! Reminds me of Monarch of the Glen…and Archie and Lexie. They both need to be in Outlander. I love that show! I am so renting the boxed sets from the library!

While I also use my library card to take out Book 2! See I support my local library and like free things.

SWD: That is awesome! Somerhalder would be proud, EC!

Ok, now we need to choose our Randalls:

Ian Somerhalder (EC law, he must appear in all posts), Richard Armitage, Jason Issacs, Ralph Fiennes, Stephen Moyer, Jonathon Rhys Meyers

SWD: Uh oh, they’re kind of… well…. *wonders* Is it wrong to “Mmmphm” over Jack Randall?
They all look like they could do some damage, but I’m going with Richard Armitage (woohoo, again, another good my outlander purgatory idea)
But, when he’s not saying “SOOkeh is MAHINE”, Stephen Moyer’s dulcet British tones are quite exquisite, and he can stomach prop blood.

EC: I officially take Somerhalder and Rhys Meyers off this list! Now that I have finished the book, Randall is a completely vile character with no redeeming qualities!

Wait…Somerhalder plays Damon. He can be very bad, but not Randall bad. And Rhys Meyers? The Tudor’s King Henry the Eighth was not a good guy and crazy town. Maybe I need to stop thinking of the two of them as Boone from LOST and the cute soccer coach from Bend It Like Beckham. Nah, I don’t want to!

Oh, we need a Claire. I don’t feel like looking for an actress and I refuse to acknowledge Catherine Heigel as an option, so here’s my Claire:
I can see why you’re smiling, Claire!
SWD: Claire’s totally a pin-up in my head.

EC: I still like the idea of Annie from the UK version of Being Human! (Just saw a commercial for the new season on BBC America during Top Gear. Yay!) I also saw a little bit of an English television show called Lark (something I can’t remember) that was on Public Television. The main girl would have been great! It also starred the now much older daughter from Absolutely Fabulous. Ugh! Does anybody know the title of this show?

Claire falls through the stones, hangs out in the castle and becomes, to use EC’s perfect phrase “Dr. Barbie.” Then Dougal sends them all on the road. I think the road would have some hijinx, since it’s a bunch of dudes… and Highaland warrior dudes at that. They’d be doing unruly-man-away-from-civilization activities, most likely involving fire… and urine. Like this:

EC: I like when they hit the road. It was like Road Trip with kilts! And danger! Also uncomfortable moments for our heroine, liked forced marriage! (I wasn’t surprised that Dougal wanted Claire for himself.)

Also, the witch trial scenes! That was very dramatic. Poor Geillis! Yes, I know she wasn’t the nicest character, but she was in the same boat as Claire. She was just trying to survive in a world that she wasn’t a part of. Gellis just handled it very poorly.

What happens in the highlands stays in the highlands: Murtagh, Rupert, Dougal, and the gang. Where

So, Jamie and Claire hook up. Yay! I was shocked that Jamie was an “Edward Cullen” and they waited to go “Breaking Dawn” before the feathers flew.

EC: I wasn’t. The Cullen in him was strong! (like The Force in Star Wars) Jamie, like Edward was a good man forced in tough situations. The difference is that perhaps Outlander is a bit umm…better written. I still love Twilight, but…Outlander is fantastic.

Oh hell, if Sid Vicious is my Young Ian, Debbie Harry as Geillis shouldn

And since Jamie is an “Edward Cullen”, it still bugs me, even though it’s trivial, that Jelly Donut (Geillis Duncan) tells Claire that Jamie fathered Hamish. It tainted my early Jamie. I dinna like my Jamie tainted, Jelly! Speaking of Jelly, Debbie Harry is my Geillis…. See how nice I am to you, young Ian? Back to Outlander, and Gellis.

EC: Please note, my Geillis comments above.

Various Viggos= Dougalicious

And Dougal. I think I have mentioned my bizarre fascination with Dougal before, yes, I know he’s a dirk, but still. These are my Dougal’s, can you blame me?

EC: Dougal is interesting, because he does questionable things, but he means well. Sort of. Sometimes. Plus, he’s much better than his brother!

OK, where can I get the Liam Rob Roy doll? I need to add that to my desktop, That

Ohhh keep reading EC…

I want fanfic an extra chapter or two of the Alice Cullen, hey it’s my blog, I can cross series Geillis/Dougal trysts.

And Column? Why not Golly from “Monarch of the Glen”?

EC: Golly is just the coolest. He needs to be somebody cool. I need to ponder this one. Ideas anyone?

Although, his nickname, Golly, doesn

SWD: So a lot of drama and adventure happens.
So I’m not really a crier (unless it’s happy tears involving music, kids, or old folks), BUT I totally cried when Claire comes back down the hill and into the cottage. Uh, wine may have been involved.

EC: So many scenes in this book made me happy/sad weepy. Also, openly cheering a strong heroine like Claire.

Wentworth recap: THIS:
BJR was here too… doing bad things. and now I have the True Blood theme song associated with Wentworth and I’m traumatized

SWD: For some strange reason, maybe since I’d already seen True Blood Season 3 (hello, Lorena) The BJR details didn’t horrify me as they should. Don’t get me wrong, I was completely offended, but not vomit it my mouth disgusted, like a normal person would be. Damn you True Blood! I was so sad it happened to Jamie. I mourned innocent happy-go-lucky-at-Leoch Jamie. But it’s Jamie, and he’s magic and comes out of it.

EC: Number one, that picture freaks me out. I am pretending I didn’t see it. Number two, I think those details freaked me out. When looking at villains, Randall is one of the worst. He is insane. No wonder, Jamie was messed up after that. That’s one of reasons, Claire is such a great character. She fought to not only to physically save him from Randall, but emotionally as well. No shrinking violet here!

Clare is awesome, she does even more bad assery in the future books. I love Claire. Claire needs to take Bella under her wing and discuss career paths with her. Anywho, I really enjoyed this book, especially since I already had a long standing kilt fetish acute fondness for all things Scottish (my people).

EC: I enjoyed it too! Bring on Book 2!!!
