WE’RE NOT SHINY, HAPPY PEOPLE

A part of me hopes I don’t have Meredith Grey’s dark and twisty side hidden deep inside me. It manifests itself, once in a while. Sometimes in whole, sometimes in bits.

But it was hard to avoid it last night and I wasn’t the only one who saw it and felt it.

Meredith Grey: Ask most people what they want out of life and the answer is simple – to be happy. Maybe it’s this expectation though of wanting to be happy that just keeps us from ever getting there. Maybe the more we try to will ourselves to state’s of bliss, the more confused we get – to the point where we don’t recognize ourselves. Instead we just keep smiling – trying to be the happy people we wish we were. Until it eventually hits us, it’s been there all along. Not in our dreams or our hopes but in the known, the comfortable, the familiar.

GREY’S ANATOMY S10E02

Cristina Yang: Just because I’m the one who said it was time doesn’t mean this is easy for me. This is not easy for me.

BINGE-WATCHING

Chanced upon an article on binge-watching on Entertainment Weekly recently and I realized why it is still my favourite source of entertainment news… it has put a name to my “hobby”!

There are other binge-watching related articles on EW.com, such as:

So anyway, I would just like to share my binge-watching experience!

1. GILMORE GIRLS

I saw this on and off during my school days and it kickstarted my adoration for Jared Padalecki (not too keen on his character development on Gilmore Girls, though). When school finally ended, I took the opportunity to finish all SEVEN seasons. I borrowed the entire DVD collection from NLB, by the way.

I’m always fascinated by the relationship Lorelai and Rory have and wished I talked as fast and witty as either of them and had someone to spar my pop culture knowledge with.

2. SUPERNATURAL

Sadly, Singapore didn’t broadcast Supernatural past season 2 and my emotional well-being was left hanging in the balance after what took place after Sam’s ordeal. Since I didn’t watch every episode, I started from the pilot till season 4 and got caught up in the ‘Sam died’, ‘Dean went to hell and came back’ and ‘who is Castiel?’ questions along with the fandom.

It was rewarding and it is still my favourite show on TV. There’s mythical lore, brotherly love, funny meta-episodes and people to root for (very important factor). It can be quite painful to watch week by week but that is TV.

3. GREY’S ANATOMY

Catching up on five seasons of this was not easy. If you’re not crying about the lead character’s complicated and tragedy-filled life, you’re crying about the patients caught in the worst possible position ever. Not to mention all the action going on in the on-call room. Still the most addictive medical drama I watch.

4. CASTLE

Finally caught up with Castle all the way to the season 4 finale last year. The chemistry between Castle and Beckett is magnetic and I was so glad for the season 4 finale! There are interesting cases – vampires, zombies, ghosts, Bigfoot that help fuel Castle’s imaginative mind and frustrate Beckett who believes in facts and evidence. Cannot wait for season 6!

5. DOWNTON ABBEY

Polished two seasons of it over one weekend and my life was changed (for the week after). Matthew and Mary! How can two people lead such frustratingly connected lives and not be together! The 2011 Christmas episode served to be the best and I dread watching season 3 and the 2012 Christmas episode for fear of what it would do to my dream for Matthew and Mary.

Mark Sloan: If you love someone, you tell them, even if you’re scared it’s not the right thing. Even if you’re scared that it’ll cause problems. Even if you’re scared it’ll burn your life to the ground. You say it, and you say it loud.

#I miss you Mark
#But I’m glad you’re with Lexie
#Afterlife FTW

TURNING AND RETURNING

This week was a crazy week in TV for me.

First of all, the ending of last week’s Grey’s Anatomy is still hanging over me like a cloud.

Secondly, I was sooo looking forward to the Castle Season 4 finale! I may have started it only three months ago but it doesn’t mean I feel any less than those who have been following the show since it first started.

Thirdly, I’ve started watching Sherlock! Yup, that’s the BBC series starting Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. I started with Season 2 (but don’t worry, I will find and watch Season 1 as soon as I can) and I’ve been dreading to watch the last episode because it would mean that I have to live in misery till the next season premiere in January 2013. And the thing is, even though each episode is 90-minute long, there are only THREE episodes per season. WHY?

Anyway, I’ve come to learn that it is quite hard to watch it outdoors because I really have to control my laughter since Sherlock is such an amusing character… and of course, ALL THE SUBTEXT. But of course, he’s extremely intelligent and it’s really amazing how much he can tell from a single look.

Then, there was the Glee prom episode “Prom-asaurus” which made me really high (“What Makes You Beautiful” by Artie, Sam, Mike, Rory and Joseph) and then Santana/Quinn’s duet of “Take My Breath Away”. And also, Darren Criss’ cute ‘fro.

Lastly, because this is the month of May and there are too many season finales going on. 😦

GREY’S ANATOMY S08E22

LEXIE GREY: I love you. Oh, G— oh, my God. That just came… Fly— Flying out of my face like it was s— s— some kind of— I— I— I love you. I just— God. Did it again. I… I— I— I— I love you. I— I do. I just— I— I love you. And I have been trying not to say it. I have been trying so hard to just mash it down and ignore it and not say it. And Jackson is a great guy. He— he is, and he— he’s gorgeous, and— and he’s younger than you, and he doesn’t have any grandkids or— or babies with his lesbian B.F.F.s and he’s an Avery, and— and he liked me, you know? He— he really liked me. But it was never gonna work out because I— I love you.

This Mark/Lexie moment killed me!!!

GREY’S ANATOMY S08E21

CALLIE TORRES: It’s awful. It’s tense and it’s cold and it’s dangerous. It feels like defusing a bomb, in a haunted house that’s built on a minefield and there are bears everywhere. And the bears have knives. You have to tame them or you will die. We will all die. Their hate will destroy this hospital and then the whole planet. I am counting on you. We’re all counting on you.
