It's been a while since I wrote about Monday Night TV. Here's two weeks worth, rolled into one.

The X-Files: 3
Scully is still missing. Mulder wanders around in a daze of pain, which causes everyone to be attracted to him. There are vampires, actual vampires. Mulder gets it on with a vampire-wanna-be, even though he apparently hasn't slept, eaten, or bathed in about three months. We wonder what would happen if Mulder and Angel met up and decide that the results would not be pretty. I am seriously distracted as Tom McBeath (Maybourne on Stargate) is in the episode and I keep pointing at the screen and waving to him.

I had been putting this ep off, as it wasn't one of the best, but I was surprised that it was still quite good. I think we were comparing it to the rest of S2 and not to, say, S9.

The X-Files: One Breath
Scully is back and her breasts are HUGE. They cause us to laugh and point, even during poignant scenes. Frohike dresses up and brings flowers to Scully in the hospital. I melt. I have it bad for Frohike. Anytime you read a Byers/Langly story and the author gets Frohike out of the way by saying he's going out to see some woman? That's me. *koff*

The Gunmen are sweet and geeky. Mrs Scully is lovely. But she's just got a little tombstone made for Dana. I wonder what she did with it. If it had been mine, I'd have used it as a doorstop. Melissa causes D. (my TV watching pal) to twitch due to her New Age ways.

Mr X tells Mulder, "You're my tool," and it's all I can do to keep from moaning out loud. Mulder holds a gun on CSM and asks him why he (Mulder) is still alive. Because you're so pretty you're my son I like you, CSM says. Mulder can't seem to do more than yell. Mulder is everybody's bitch, we conclude.

Skinner comes downstairs to tell Mulder he won't accept Mulder's resignation. I find it hard to breathe when they're in the same room. God, I remember this. They're so intense. Skinner tells Mulder a story about Vietnam, they fuck on Mulder's desk, then Skinner leaves.

Scully gets better. It's a miracle. As are her breasts.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Living Conditions
Buffy's roommate is a Cher-loving, jeans-ironing demon. Oz says he's going to move in with Giles, but doesn't actually follow through on it. Hmm, that's about all.

[we watched The Harsh Light of Day previously, as we were confused by the DVD menu]

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Fear Itself
I'm not usually about the Buffy lust, but her Little Red Riding Hood costume really does it for me. Really does it for me. Add in Giles with a chain saw, and this was all about the pretty for me. There's a nice scene with Anya and Giles, but Anya is as yet too fixated on Xander for the Anya/Giles love to blossom. Xander looked quite tasty in his tuxedo.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Beer Bad
Beer good. Episode bad.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Wild At Heart
Ouch. Veruca and Oz are The Sexy. Our hearts bleed for Willow. Spike gets zapped. We learn that being a werewolf means that the wolf is there all the time. We learn that a Hound Dog is a kind of amplifier. Oz drives away. And there's one of my favourite Xander lines ever:

Willow: What does it mean when a girl wants to...you know.
Xander: If you're doing it, I think you should be able to say it.
Willow: Make love.
Xander: Wild monkey love or tender Sarah Mclachlan love?

We also watched last week's Angel and the Simpsons episode where Homer goes to clown college and laughed fit to kill at both of them.

Three is the worst. episode. ever. but I adore One Breath. I have OB and Ascension on video---Ascension comes before 3, but 3 was so bad that they packaged Ascension and One Breath together and skipped 3 altogether.

Ah, season two angst. How I miss thee.

Her breasts really were astonishing in that episode.

Do you really think 3 is the worst? What about Teso Dos Bichos? What about S8 & S9? 3 is fairly forgettable, though.

Giles with a chainsaw

They could pretty much make a tv show called "Giles and a Chainsaw" and I'd be there every week, watching. Mmmmmmm.

Oooh! oh! Me!! *waves hand* I want to watch, too!


Also, what a lovely Mulder/Skinner flashback. They were my first slash pairing, you know. Mmmmm. All that chemistry. The air was thick with subtext every time Skinner looked at Mulder in that manly way he had. Mmmm.

When we started watching from the beginning again, I was really floored by the M/Sk chemistry (and I've shipped them all along). Whenever Mulder gets in the same room as Skinner, he's instantly submissive, even if he's yelling at Skinner. He bows his head and gets all sullen and now I can't breathe again.

I never really wrote any M/Sk back then, except once or twice, but I'm starting to think I might have to do some now. Well, when my challenge fics are done.

Oh, god yes. And then there's the "Skinner chops wood shirtless" show. Perhaps there could be crossoevers.

Not a huge Buffy fan, but I could be *so* into the Giles/Anya love. I seem to lean to the het side when considering Giles, although I probably wouldn't object if he wanted to run off with that Ethan person, either.

Yeah, Giles is a fairly het adult, but it seems like it's nearly canon that he and Ethan had it on when they were seventeen. There was the one episode where they're out drinking and talking:

Ethan: Relax. Enjoy the night. We're just a couple of sorcerers. The night is still our time. Time of magic.

Giles: To magic.

Then the scene cuts to Willow and Tara doing some v. sensual metaphor-for-sex magic.

It seemed pretty clear to me.

Dear Hal,

This is a letter in which I tell you that you make me laugh. I laugh out loud right here at my desk in the empty house, all alone, so you know I'm not just laughing because everybody else is. You have made The X-Files new and shiny for me again because Scully's breasts are miraculous, and you evince bad-sin feelings in me because I remember how I was happy that Scully's New Age bossy sister got killed. And I think Mulder and Angel should get together and Skinner can wade in shirtless and split them up--literally and figuratively. You remind me that I used to drive 40 minutes to my in-laws' house on Sunday nights to watch the show because they had cable and we didn't and I couldn't bear to miss an ep., back before Scully got all maudlin and weepy all the time around S8 or something.

Also, I now wish to see Buffy in the Little Red Riding Hood costume. Missed that one. *sigh*

So, I like Monday Night Television Report.

*folds hands and waits patiently until next week*

Aw, thanks! I am so enjoying TXF this time around. We know what's important. (Trying to identify Vancouver location shots, making lewd jokes about Mulder, sighing happily every time Mr X shows up.)

Also, laughing is good. Glad to help out in this way. *g*

Frohike you're so fine, You're so fine you blow my mind...

Anytime you read a Byers/Langly story and the author gets Frohike out of the way by saying he's going out to see some woman? That's me.

Don't make me hurt you, bee-atch; he's mine. ;-)

Mr X tells Mulder, "You're my tool"

..fuh..fuh...fff--

THUD

Re: Frohike you're so fine, You're so fine you blow my mind...

Don't make me hurt you, bee-atch; he's mine.

Oh yeah? Come over here and say that.
