WARNING: MILD GLEE SPOILERS.


I love how I can make a comment about how fucking annoyed I am that Santana pretty much got the shit beat out of her by Lauren on Glee and it was 100% played off as a joke (specifically because if Kurt so much as gets slushied/thrown in a dumpster/shoved into a locker/etc it's OMG END OF THE WORLD), and the immediate response I get is basically: "Yeah, but did you see what a bitch she was being?"

Aaaaand rant. But a thoughtful one. )

OTP ALERT.

None of the couples I've shipped in recent years have ended up (or will end up) together. Sometimes because they're all slashy and the shows just don't go there, but sometimes they're het and logical and still don't end up together. I think Roswell, Charmed, and Higher Ground (my first three non-kid favorite shows) were the only shows in which I strictly shipped canon pairings. Ever since then, as is true for many fangirls, my ships have gone straight to hell.

And I'm okay with that. It's what fandom is for, right? The slash stuff I totally understand not happening (especially because there's usually um, like no real indication of it in the shows), and even though I may get really angry about certain het pairings not happening in the show (*cough* Parker/Eliot *glareeee*), I'll live, and I still enjoy the show(s).

But if Brittana is not an endgame pairing, I am lighting my Glee DVDs on fire and throwing them over the wall onto the Paramount lot.


HOW CAN YOU NOT SHIP THIS??


I read an interview with Heather Morris & Naya Rivera in which they said they're always trying to like, sit next to each other in the choir room scenes (even THEY want Brittana to happen, dammit!) but the directors keep making them sit next to other people. From what I've heard (cuz remember, I haven't watched this season and I FUCKING CAN'T WATCH TV TIL FEBRUARY -- which I may break for Glee cuz I'm terribly obsessing), the characters basically don't talk to each other anymore and never have scenes together. Yet they are supposed to be BFF. It's stupid! Stupid, stupid, stupid! And I have a feeling it's because they don't want to gay up the show too much........which makes absolutely no sense. It's all about Kurt. Kurt Kurt Kurt and his stupid bitchy self. I've grown to loathe Kurt. He was always a complete ASS to Rachel, but she's the character that always gets hated on by the other characters. Kurt can do no wrong. And he gets The Serious Storylines. Because he's gay. But (kinda secret) lesbians, no, that's perfectly fine to just make that a joke and then completely tear apart their storylines altogether. Glee is a comedy, I know. And if EVERYTHING was always jokes, that'd be one thing. But it's always srsbsns!Kurt and everyone else gets shit on.

Ugh this show makes me so ragey. As you all should know by now. Mostly because I can't fucking quit it. There is so much wrong with it and I just want to slap Ryan Murphy upside the head because I KNOW he's better than this, but at the same time it's Glee, and I can't help but love it, and love certain characters. 

The last time I had this sort of angry relationship with a show I wound up getting a tattoo for it. -.-

I leave you with a parting gif--
d'aww RL BFFs FTW
EDIT: I FEEL SO JUSTIFIED.

I just went off on a rant in the comments of [livejournal.com profile] fandomsecrets that basically repeated everything I posted here and everyone who responded actually agrees with me. No one ever agrees with me on [info]fandomsecrets! Then again, most of my rants are about Eleven/Amy/Rory, so... o_O

Day 5: A show you hate

Again, I can't just choose one. But here, we're sticking to two current shows.

1. Warehouse 13

God. I really loathe this show. This show is everything that is wrong and demeaning about sci-fi. I thought it was going to be decent since Jane Espenson co-wrote the pilot, but I don't understand what happened.

First of all, the characters are incredibly cliche. The dorky "playboy" agent and the tough, "somebody-needs-to-break-my-walls-down" female agent. I mean, really. And from what I've seen of the show, all that lies beneath the cliches are more cliches. The dialog in the pilot episode was probably the worst dialog I've ever heard in a recent, American, network/big-name-cable show. Super contrived, attempting to be witty but failing MISERABLY, and just way too on the nose. To be fair, I'm going to watch the rest of season one at some point just to validate my opinions, but I have very little doubt I'm right about this.



But neither of these issues is the biggest problem I have with this show, the reason why I think it is a giant blemish on the name of science fiction. Watching sci-fi, you automatically have to suspend disbelief. A lot. You have to accept worlds and ideas and science/magic that are sometimes really far beyond anything the builders of our future as a society have even conceptualized on paper yet. And I will more than gladly do all this if you can convince me of this world. If you tell me vampires can only be killed with stakes, beheading, and fire - okay. Vampires probably MOVE really fast, and are really strong, and it may be super hard to get to them. If you tell me a spaceship is going to jump into hyperdrive and go insanely fast - okay. Whatever powers the ship and/or jumps it into lightspeed may break, or need time in between jumps. Hell, I'll even believe a fuckin' blue telephone box that can travel through time and space, because the "technology" is "explained" and sometimes it takes them to the wrong place, and sometimes it rips holes in the fabric of the universe. Basically, I will believe in all these things because they also have equally believable limitations, something we can relate to in our reality. What I absolutely cannot and will not believe, is a stupid little vat of goo that can somehow stop every historical/magical object from being potent and wreaking havoc. No. No, no, no. That is bum-fucking stupid and the worst, repetitive example of deus ex machina. No thank you.


2. Grey's Anatomy

See Children's Hospital. 'Nuff said.
