darkauthor26: ([lipservice]Frankie Taking Pictures)
I have to say that I appreciate this show taking more of a mystery turn. While I liked the first episode, it was mostly exposition: who are these characters, how do they relate, what are they like? That kind of thing. This time, however, we've got Frankie taking the initiative on finding the woman that her aunt sent her scrapbook of Frankie's childhood. While I have to say that I like Frankie, she's an idiot, and I don't like the way she treats Cat. Which is unfortunate because when they are getting along, and Frankie isn't just thinking about herself, she and Cat get along fabulously and I ship them so hard

However, at the same time, Frankie has a lot of growing up to do before I can feel comfortable with them getting together. Right now, I like Cat being with Sam. I like Sam. I like Sam's outfit on their date. I want her pants and I want her shirt. And I bet she was wearing fabulous shoes too. So I want those as well. I like Sam's honesty and caring and straightforwardness. I especially love when she was telling Cat about her first time on the police force when she realized that she was chasing after a murderer by herself--so she hid until backup arrived. I loved that. It was just hilarious. XD

I also love the way that Frankie and Sam contrast. Frankie is immature, sleeps around, and has a sarcastic sense of humor. Sam is mature, loyal and caring. She has a similar sense of humor, but not to quite the extent that Frankie does.

I'm interested to see how Sam and Cat's relationship will fair with Frankie lurking around the edges and pursuing Cat.

I saw The Last Airbender today with my brother. It wasn't that great, but it wasn't completely horrible either, though; I'll give it that. It had some good moments, but I'll keep the information behind a cut so nobody gets spoiled if they don't want to. :)

spoilers behind cut )

All and all, the average score my brother and I gave it was a D+/C-. It wasn't a great movie, though you could see the potential for a great movie in it, but it had some good moments too. Not one of my favorite movies, but I might watch it again on a rainy day or something. And I wouldn't be completely adverse to writing a movieverse fanfic or two (with some minor alterations).

And that's about it. I apologize for it not being that great, but it's getting late and I'm getting tired. If there's anything you want to know, ask it in the comments and I'll be happy to answer or explain. :)

Also, one last thing: the soundtrack is pretty awesome. If you don't want the whole soundtrack at least get "Flow Like Water" which is what plays toward the end where Aang makes the giant wall of water to scare away the Fire Nation soldiers. It's an awesome song! :D I'm in love with it.

I mentioned earlier that I had gotten all three seasons of Avatar: the Last Airbender on DVD for Christmas. Well, for the past two days, I've been rewatching Season One (which really should've only taken a day seeing as how there's only twenty episodes and each one is half an hour long--less without commercials--but I've been watching it with my mom who can only watch one show for so long without needing a break). It's been a while--a long while--since I've seen the first season, and it's really interesting to go back and see how everyone's changed--especially Prince Zuko. I had rewatched the series finale only a couple of days ago, so to go from the very end to almost immediately back to the very beginning was great.

I had almost forgotten how child-like Aang was in the beginning.  )

I finished Carpe Jugulum by Terry Pratchett today. IT. WAS. AWESOME. The vampires were amazing, and Granny Weatherwax's plan to take them down was something I never saw coming. Agnes Nitt was one of my favorite new characters, along with Vlad. Although, if I didn't know better, I would say that the whole Vlad/Agnes relationship was a parody of Twilight since Vlad is attracted to and intrigued by Agnes because he can't read Agnes's mind (which, unlike in Twilight, is actually explained in the book and relatively early).

One of my favorite things about this book is Terry Pratchett's ability to make the vampires both funny and completely evil. At one point, the vampires (who can effect people's minds) have everyone standing around, nodding and smiling while the Count tells them about their plan to take over the kingdom. My other favorite part is when the Count is telling everyone that things like fear of religious symbols and bursting into flamings in sunlight and such are all just in their heads and has them all drinking wine. Lacrimosa, his daughter, complains about it, and then get into a discussion in which we learn that rebelling vampire teens give themselves names like "Henry" and "Pam" and one even pretends he's an accountant. Apparently, prep is the vampire version of goth or emo. It was awesome.

Gah! People are bugging me to hurry up so we can watch South Park on the computer so that's all I've got to say about that at the moment, I guess.
