It's that time again to update my profile. Very little has changed, but I have more new shows to add to my viewing pleasure and obsession.
The most recently prolific stories have been for Hawaii Five-0 and Chaos (another show canceled unceremoniously and prematurely by CBS) to my list. I've been completely inspired literarily by the shows and their characters. In Hawaii Five-0, it's been Detective Danny Williams. Scott Caan does SUCH AN AMAZING job with the role. He believably balances playing a by-the-book cop (playing in contrast to the guns blazing Navy SEAL Steve McGarrett played by Alex O'Loughlin) and a devoted single father. He gives depth to a character who could easily have been a throwaway in a cop/procedural show. There's a reason why Scott was nominated for a Golden Globe. In Chaos, despite its cancellation, it's James Murray and Freddy Rodriguez. James also deftly balanced his performance of Agent Billy Collins by playing him as a compassionate and empathetic agent, qualities not usually associated with a CIA operative, as well as an agent with a mysterious past. Because of the cancellation of the show, it will be fun to mine and explore those qualities through fanfiction so I'm hoping to do that. Freddy Rodriguez is best known for his work in Six Feet Under and Ugly Betty. I particularly enjoyed his role as Gio Rossi on Ugly Betty. Another great thing about fanfiction, you can "rewrite history"on long gone shows so I've enjoyed that aspect with that show. I've always thought that Betty should have chosen Gio, but I'm a terminal and unrepentant romantic anyway. His role as Rick Martinez on Chaos played in delightful contrast to Billy beautifully and he played the naive and idealistic CIA agent wannabe perfectly. I liked their interactions together as James played Billy as an "older brother" figure with fatigued experience to pass on to his protege. I've also been delving into some romance-driven stories with the show Royal Pains. I've loved the show before, but the addition of Ben Shenkman as bedside manner-challenged Dr. Jeremiah Sacani has provided a lovely unrequited love (for now -- I'm hoping something will develop in future seasons) scenario with Divya that has inspired some cupid-daydreaming on my part.
As always, thanks for everyone's continuing input and feedback on all of my stories. It's been wonderful to get everyone's thoughts and I'm not shy in saying that your positive responses have been a great ego boost, keeps the inspiration alive and keeps me writing so thanks VERY MUCH! It's all welcome and very much appreciated!
I'm still very happily married. I used to have my own blog on the TV Guide web site, but it was discontinued. Boo hiss TV Guide. I have since relocated to Live Journal so if you are still interested in reading long winded commentaries on the show, Supernatural and its episodes as well as a character study on Dean Winchester, please feel free to visit and comment there.
I've since updated myto be more inclusive of other show interests as well as to repost some stories there so I hope you'll find something of interest there as well. I admit that I've lost a little steam on the Supernatural analysis front just because there are so many other WONDERFUL blogs already out there like that do a much better job.
I have been a Star Wars/Star Trek fan from way back in the 60's and 70's. Yes, I'm that old, but I still think young and thinking about Jensen Ackles, Scott Caan and now James Murray and Freddy Rodriguez keeps me young...married, but not dead, you see...hee. My husband just rolls his eyes. He's secure about my obsessions, as he should be.
My current favorite new shows are Grimm, Touch, Once Upon a Time, The Following, The Americans, Chicago Fire and Elementary. Mythbusters and Dirty Jobs fulfill my reality show quota although I'm mad at Discovery for seemingly canceling Dirty Jobs and replacing its programming with less than stellar substitutes which I won't dignify mentioning.
Other shows I enjoy are Criminal Minds, NCIS, and The Big Bang Theory as well as Covert Affairs, White Collar, Royal Pains, and Warehouse 13. My guilty pleasure reality show is still Dancing with the Stars. I used to be a disco queen, how could I not like this show? I also have enjoyed BBC productions such as Primeval (James Murray's earlier acting work) and Robin Hood, discovering Richard Armitage who is a marvelous actor. I'm also among the millions who LOVE Downton Abbey. Maggie Smith is just a hoot and a half!
I've been writing for as long as I can remember from memorable "publications" such as the cat with green eyes in the first grade to fan fiction. I started writing fan fiction back when it was still being produced on paper in fan zines and the first show I wrote on was War of the Worlds, a syndicated show, VERY loosely based on the H.G. Welles story, starring Jared Martin as Harrison Blackwood and Richard Chavez as Lt. Col. Paul Ironhorse. That was my humble beginning into the foray of fan fiction. I was out of circulation for a while when I got married just because I was busy with other things and was in a creative block for awhile.
I then discovered Buffy and Angel and began writing a lot of Buffy and Spike fan fiction. My creative block was over.
I have loved submitting the stories I have thus far and hope the inspiration doesn't stop. I think that as long as Jensen plays Dean and now Scott Caan playing Danny Williams as well enjoying past characters like James as Billy Collins, I'll have plenty of material to mine from.
Thanks for welcoming me into the fold so fondly and for always taking the time to review my stories. I'm not kidding, they mean a lot and I enjoy them thoroughly! It's very much appreciated.
