All I wanted was to acquaint myself with Alan Taylor's works. He's directing Thor: The Dark World so I'm curious about what he could do with this movie. Asgard and the Nine Realms, the Dark World, the Dark Elves - it'll be a complete fantasy movie. I've read that Taylor's done great work on Game of Thrones so why not check out an episode or two to determine what great work he'll do on Thor: The Dark World. But he directed the season finale and a few episodes of the next season. I wouldn't be able to understand the man's work without understanding the series first. So I start with the pilot episode. And I couldn't stop.
Is it an addictive show or is just a really damn good series? Or both? I don't know, but the thing is, Thrones isn't usually my kind of show. For American television, I go for the episodic, entertaining ones like cartoons, comedies, and crime shows. My top three shows are Psych, Leverage, and How I Met Your Mother. The only "dramatic" ones that I used to watch are Law and Order: SVU and House. (I LOVED HOUSE!!!) The one show that comes close to Thrones in the drama genre that I used to watch was Revenge. But when the two-timing and back-stabbing started, that was when I realized that I didn't give a damn enough about these people to continue watching. And that's the key – likable characters.( Love and HateCollapse )
And this is why I shouldn't get into these political shows full of treachery and treason. I can become a little too passionate in my hatred for the villains. I love to hate.
Such a wonderful family pic, but I LOVE that Yuuji and Sachi are just staring into each other's eyes. RyoxAsami!!!

Inu wo kau to Iu Koto is a family-oriented drama yet I can't get over the married couple. They are so not romantic and lovey-dovey, and that's why I love them. I said from the beginning that I felt they were playing up this couple. And even though there was nothing big (plot-wise) to test their marriage, they did have their little fights. With every episode, little by little, the audience was getting some form of "affection" from this couple. Especially with ep07 and ep08. After watching ep08, I felt that the finale would finally give us a kiss. Even though it aired already in Japan, I don't know if there was or wasn't a kiss. But I do hope and feel that there will be one. *crosses fingers*
