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.
