Favorite antagonist and why

There are lots of terrible people on this show, and they do terrible things for various reasons- Jason wanted money, Roger wanted to avoid jail, Barnabas wanted a girlfriend, Angelique wanted revenge, Count Petofi wanted his damn hand back. In the name of said goals,…

It will never stop bothering me that we have no solid answer as to whether or not Sweeney and Mrs. Lovett eat their own meat pies

They probably do. She offers Toby pies so often, in a way that looks like it’s their go to snack. Although I…

Hey, just because we’re cannibals it doesn’t mean we have no regard for health! (yeah Kuru is not fun.)

The fact is, few shows ever return from the dead. For every FAMILY GUY that pulls the Resurrection Trick, there are a hundred others like THE ADVENTURES OF BRISCO COUNTY JR., PUSHING DAISIES and 1991’s DARK SHADOWS that never emerge from their metaphorical crypts. Even the patron saint of untimely television deaths, FIREFLY, only managed a post mortem spasm in the form of the SERENITY feature film. TV shows are hard to make, and even harder to revive once a network loses faith in them. It’s not a coincidence that the few programs that manage the Resurrection Trick usually do so in another forum. VERONICA MARS, cancelled by UPN, is returning in the form of a crowd-funded feature film, while ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT, killed by Fox in 2006, returned this year as a Netflix series.

Updated Science: The Science of Body Language

The Science of Body Language

  • Since we first published this science, nothing about Sally has changed. Nothing. Sometimes, you talk to her and you’re about to say, “Sally, don’t you realize your body language indicates deep-seeded issues with commitment? Issues that spring from your own narcissistic fear of aging?” But then you just cross your arms (classic body language) and listen to her complain about how it’s too difficult to return a used dress to the department store.

Pax, sax, sarax; hola, noa, nostra! - ka-bala, the 1967 talking board game from the Transogram Company.

Looks like the kinda thing Parallel time Stokes would have.

Dark Shadows Challenge, Day 4

forthegothicheroine:

Favorite original cast member

Original as in, on the show from the beginning?  Ooh, this is hard.  I guess I’ll have to go with Louis Edmonds as everyone’s favorite cranky capitalist, Roger Collins.  The Byronic Hero described him as “an earthy curmudgeon in a show full of wispy aesthetes”, and that’s what he was.  Cold, ruthless, sometimes sinister, but with a wit (and a way with a brandy bottle) appreciated by all, he even made his line flubs sound in-character!

He is unshakeable.

I also have great respect for Michelle Ryan, (maybe that’s just in contrast to Anthony George)
