I love Amber, am liking Cameron more each day, and am just fine with Thirteen when she's not David Shore's Mary-Sue. I can (and have) point out all the ways the writers have messed up with the other female characters, but in the end, I can overlook the flaws and enjoy the show.

But then there's Cuddy, who hits way too many of my squicks to the point of distraction.

This is for all the Cuddy-haters who do not hate women, but perhaps have too much respect for them to tolerate this grotesque caricature.

I was sick the past few days, so I rewatched some of Season 5. And now I've taken a few screencaps and wrote up some thoughts on the season as a whole.

Failure to Communicate & Both Sides Now

I don't know if I'll post this anywhere, 'cause I don't know if there's anywhere it really belongs. It's about House/Cuddy, but fans of the pairing probably won't like it much.

I decided to watch all of Doris Egan's episodes (because all but one or two are my absolute favorite episodes of the series), the first of which is "Failure to Communicate." And I noticed there were some parallels to "Both Sides Now." (And kind of interesting in contrast to this meta I wrote.) Since I write essays compulsively, here I am.

Star Trek

I am the daughter of a Trekkie (Aunt: "Trekkers! Trekkers!), so I watched and enjoyed Stark Trek by default, and sometimes make somewhat obscure references to both the original series and The Next Generation.

So, of course, I saw the reboot film.

My internet connection's all whacky, so I wound up watching this episode by myself. Maybe that was for the best.

Hooray for my school's wi-fi. )

Big Love Season Finale!

First: I read the script for the original Dollhouse, since the show has now covered the same plot points in it. I kept waiting to be knocked over by its awesome, but...I wasn't. Talk about hype. Maybe it'll be different when I can actually see it, but my overall impression was that the pilot was just different from the first episode, not necessarily better. Maybe if you cobbled together parts of the pilot and the first episode, that would be an awesome series opener. Fans are crazy.

And I can't stop thinking about that damn show. I rewatched the last episode three times already. I don't know when was the last time I did that...

Now, on to Big Love. )

Joss Whedon wasn't kidding about making us uncomfortable...

I do love being right. )

Watchmen? MUST WATCH

As a fan of the graphic novel, I have to say the Watchmen movie is nothing short of excellent. At the extreme risk of sounding superior, I think only an idiot or major snob can seriously pan this film. It takes its sweet time and you don't get to just turn your brain off. Anyone who is unfamiliar with the comic, I can't stress enough not to think of Watchmen as a superhero film.

And, seriously? The squid is not important. The idea behind it is, and that was loud and clear in the film.

Well, I am immensely happy.

EDIT: I have more to say.

Snip snip. Spoilers, durr. )

This House/Cuddy storyline is riding on my nerves with each increasingly senseless episode.

I usually don't rant about this stuff, especially not around a bunch of excited fans (unlike some annoying-ass people), but...I HAVE TO GET IT OUT.
