For a while now I've been having this thought about Smallville, specifically about Clois. Do you know what I'd really love to see happen on the show? Don't get me wrong I think the show is doing them justice and definitely getting across the joy and excitement they feel in each other's company, but I would absolutely adore a scene where they make each other laugh hysterically. Because, for a start, there is nowhere near enough laughter in television and it's wonderful when it's done well (they're always the best outtakes right? When the actors get the giggles? It's a joyful sight and if you're anything like me you'll be laughing with them). Secondly, laughter is one of those things we all know can make a relationship truly special. I firmly believe that Clark and Lois find each other funny, and I believe that this is one of the reasons Smallville's Clois feels so right to us. And wouldn't that just be the best scene ever? To see them share a joke, something that would only be funny to them, that no one else gets to be a part of, and they would just, like, be laughing so hard they're crying. I WOULD LOVE TO SEE THAT. Yeah I could try and write it into a fic, but that wouldn't satisfy me. I want to see it on the show! I think the show could pull it off, and I think we would all love it, and it would be a wonderful surprise as well. Please start your letter writing campaign today.
When not musing about my favourite OTP I have been watching Greek, which I'm totally addicted to. I love Cappie more than everything and I've gone from quite liking Rusty to thinking he's one of the best things to ever happen to television (and the world!). I'm quite excited about Max, who showed up a couple of episodes ago and I'm hoping he will stick around, Casey and Ash are the cutest BFFs, and Rebecca is still pretty unlikeable but I'm still holding out hope that she and Casey will become friends. Frannie and Evan are perfect for each other because they are both assholes (who I like anyway). Ah, new show high, it is the greatest. ♥
Saw Inglorious Basterds the other day (meh) and Un prophète last night (excellent but not 'my kind of movie'. I generally find myself less engaged in films that have no female characters, even when they are brilliant). I couldn't get through A Touch of Evil which makes me feel like a very bad film student. :/ The September Issue on the other hand, was great, and I think I will write my next essay on fashion documentaries.
