Things what I have seen

Fringe 313: O SHI -

Bizarre dashing of soap opera tropes into my sci-fi/horror, what is this??? Aside from that, I would just like to say that in all of the freaky-ass gore this show has thrown around, nothing has squicked me as much as this episode. WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO ME, FRINGE, WHY, WHAT DID I EVER DO TO YOU.

getitoffmeeeeeeeeee

Was weird to see an episode with Altlivia as the protagonist. I mean, we had plenty of episodes with her at the center of them, but she was still an antagonist in those. It was interesting, and I wouldn't mind seeing more of them. Also, Lincoln is the most adorable thing ever, y/y?

Lastly: BUG FANGIRL. GREATEST THING EVER. OMG SHE WAS THE BESTEST.


Madoka Magica ep6: THAT CREEPY LITTLE RAT. Omg. Guys, seriously, did you seriously not realize until now that you were being manipulated? (I guess I'm being too harsh. I reckon middle schoolers are so used to being manipulated it hardly registers.)


Star Driver ep 1-18: Watched the first ep of this back when it started broadcasting and everyone was talking about it, and I was kind of ambivalent. Went ahead and marathoned up to current in a fit of boredom last week. THIS SHOW MAKES NO SENSE. NONE. It's basically an incoherent collection of fanservice, bizarre and unsettling robots, sexual metaphors, and surreal references to other surreal series. But it is pretty hysterical. I mean, with GALACTIC PRETTY BOY* here to save the day, what could possibly go wrong?

*no seriously, that is actually what the main character is called, I am not making this up




Level E 1-5: Hilarious, mindless sci-fi/comedy. Not really much to say beyond that... I recommend it if you like that sort of thing.


Yumeikui Merry 1-2: Dig the concept (a dream creature stuck in reality), but the execution is a bore. The moe is a little overwhelming too, but I could get past that if it wasn't such a snooze.


Gosick 1-5: Kind of meh about this. I like the girl, but the boy gets on my nerves. Also the mysteries are kind of... well, as Victorique says, they're boring. It's pretty, though.

NOT SURE HOW I FEEL ABOUT FRINGE PLOT TWIST. Or Altlivia in general, really. She is really interesting, but I feel oddly protective of our Olivia and I don't want her to get hurt anymore. EVEN THOUGH IF SHE DIDN'T, WE WOULDN'T HAVE A PLOT. What are you doing to me, Fringe. D:

I like Altlivia but am kind of shocked and appalled at the lengths she's willing to go. It's like Olivia's hardcore determination but without the pesky moral boundaries. Which is understandable given the circumstances, but it still made me go "D: D: D:!" all throughout the first part of the 3rd season. I'm not sure how I feel about the plot twist either. It's kind of out of left field. Also, NEW LEVELS OF CREEPY FOR WALTERNATE AUGH.

(I want a storyline where the Olivias come to a mutual understanding, b/c can you imagine the pure levels of unstoppable kick-assery that would happen if they teamed up?)

Duuuude. The Olivias kicking ass together would make this the best show in existence.

I'm watching the ep of Fringe that starts with pieces of brains getting cut out...

Oh, that one barely even made me wrinkle my nose. Now, the one with the brains melting out people's noses and mouths, that was... URP. I had to keep looking away when they kept shoving the pictures on the screen. :X

This episode, though... man, I had to keep pausing and taking a moment to do something else. I'm... really not good with bugs. REALLY.

I have an unreal amount of affection for Star Driver, oh my god. I think probably because my only standards for an incomplete series is nice animation, because I take for granted that I am just not going to get it and maybe never will. XD Basically it is all about sex and I'm weirded out that I can't find any porn for it yet, haha.

Lol, I don't need things to make sense - often it's even a bonus if they don't. I love surreal crack, whether it's artsy fartsy or just plain WE ARE HAVING FUN AND WE DON'T CAREEEE. I am somewhat awed by just how much the writers don't seem to care in this series. XD;

I still think that this particular plot twist could be used in really awful ways, especially with the set-up about Cortexaphan earlier and how Walternate is supposedly against experimentation on other children. I'm worried there's a train wreck coming.

Ugh, yes, especially after Walternate's creepersville act at the end and Altlivia's sick "ofuck" expression.

ahhhh i'm sorry i missed this

Yes, in fact, I do! Presuming all the dl links still work.

You can get boss here (you have to be a member of the comm) and you can get MMM here (you have to register to the forum I think).
