Medium is about one of the only shows I watch with any regularity. I love it for lots of reasons, not the least of which is that they have my bed!! Seriously though, I just enjoy it all around, the writing is good, the story is nifty (she's a side-kick, pardon that's six year old speak for psychic) and I love watching Joe and Allison. The writers have such a great knack with a real married couple. They argue, Joe worries for Allison, they are equals and not equals, it's all good.
Let's get onto tonight's title, "Twice Upon a Time." That was also the title of the rather meek but beautiful season finale from season 2 of Medium. Allison gets caught as a psychic, a trial goes pearshaped, the defense puts out a press conference saying that the DA was working with a psychic, and she decides that she should have squelched her psychicness and just become a lawyer like she wanted. She wakes up with her college sweetheart, and she is a lawyer who doesn't dream or follow her instincts. K. Standard let's re-live our lives fantasy BS. Right?
Until... Joe shows up as her expert witness. This episode was NOT long enough. They could have made a romantic movie out of it and even though it played like a dozen different romance novels, it still gave me the weepies and the happies all at once. Mostly because Jake Weber, the guy who plays Joe, YUM!
I should start a meme:
Top Five Television Males1.
James Marsters, Spike from Buffy, because every girl wants a little of the 'Big Bad' sometime...2.
Hugh Laurie, House from... House. First cuz he's Hugh Laurie and second, because he's just so damn prickly, and I love the stuff that comes out of his mouth.3.
Jake Weber, Joe from Medium... oooh I've liked him for awhile... since American Gothic, but holy crap, have you ever looked at the man's hands? yummmmm4.
David Krumholtz, Charlie from Numb3rs. I don't care if the math is made up, he can teach me algebra anythime... I'd probably still fail. I like his assuredness but frailty.5.
Only gonna say this once, Patrick Stewart, Capt. Jean Luc Picard of the Starship Enterprise... holy cow. Ok yeah he's also Prof. Xavier from Xmen, but have you seen him in Dad Savage? Wowser. Got to love a man with range...
And just for the hell of it:Top Five TV 'men' From Childhood/Adolesence.
Fred Savage, The Wonder Years. I had a huuuuuuuuuge crush on Fred Savage and watched all of his movies, even the one where they travel and play video games...2.
God help me for admitting this, Wil Wheaton, Wesley Crusher. Up until he went to Starfleet and became a putz.3.
Richard Dean Anderson, MacGuyver. Mostly because he was just cool and awesome...4.
David Duchovny, Fox Mulder. HOLY ----- I was crushed beyond all reason when I found out how much older he is than me. This was when I was younger and didn't appreciate how much more experienced (and fun) older men can be...5.
Neil Patrick Harris, Doogie Howser. He's a doctor, he's smart, and he was like the PROTOBLOGGER OF ALL TIME! He blogged before there was a word for blogging! I lived for the moment the little white cursor came up on his bright blue screen.
Some of the guys on my childhood list are still on my adult list, just lower down. The two that aren't, are the first 2. *shudder* fark this wil wheaton. But you know who really caught my eye? Neil Patrick Harris, because he is so funny that it's--- "leg-en-dary!" I just realized something, Doogie all grown up also has a blog on his new show's website, but I think almost all shows have blogs now. *gack*
I'm up past my bedtime, dreaming of people when there's only one I should be dreaming of. TTFN
knitting content: I cast on and swatched for my Simple Knitted Bodice, and am loving it. I also found a few things in the new Knit1mag that I must have. Namely the cabled legwarmers, because they'd totally go with my halloween costume: goth fairy. Yay! Who doesn't love a Halloween costume they can wear regularly just by nixing the funky tights, wings, and fimo "hornays" as the Simi from the Sherrilyn Kenyon novels would say?
