Last Batch of SV Pictures, and other stuff

OK, all done with S1 of Glee.  I guess I'd say I was a tad disappointed in the Glee S1 finale.  Mostly in the "big" performance at Regionals, because it was not one of my favorite New Directions routines.  In fact, the routine they did one week earlier, the Funk routine, blew the Journey routine out of the freaking water.  With a vengeance.  However, I did enjoy the renditions of "To Sir With Love" and "Over The Rainbow".  In fact, I'm sort of obsessed with the latter.

As for the plot stuff, I mostly liked it, though I don't think its even possible for me to care any less if Rachel and Finn get together. 

So, now I just wait for S2, and see if the show can hold onto to me.  Its sort of nice to add another show on to my watch list, because truth be told, I don't watch very much these days.  Smallville and Supernatural, Sons of Anarchy, Justified, Project Runway, and....oh yeah, thats pretty much it. 

I know I had thrown out some ideas for Smallville stuff to keep us entertained in the next few weeks before the premiere, but the awful truth is,  I'm not feeling it.  I think all that nonsense with Facebook and Twitter just took my head totally out of the game.  Which wasn't too hard, because my head wasn't totally into it to begin with.  I really feel a general disinterest in SV's last season, which is just so damned depressing. 

I sharpened up, and cropped, all the remaining SV pictures I had, and

I wish I had more good ones of Erica, but this is the best of the ones I got   

Chuckles Hartley

Schneider, the Panel Hog

"Father" and "Son"

And finishing this off with His Royal Hotness

Am I the only one who thought Tom looked epically tired?

Not sure if I'm tuning into Glee s2.
What are your thoughts on the Finn-Kurt fight/argument in "Theatricality"? (thanks Wikipedia!)
Kinda swept the main issue under the rug.
Aug. 18th, 2010 02:36 am (UTC)
I think compared to Justin, Tom looked like a spring daisy. LOL

The Finn/Kurt thing? I could see both sides. I do think Finn overreacted, but Kurt can be a little over-the-top. So, I actually sympathize with both of them. I mean, lets be serious here, its not as if Kurt is going to force himself on Finn, so Finn acting like Kurt was going to jump him any minute seemed extreme.

I do understand that this issue is going to come up again in S2. It was brought up at the CC panel, and thats what they said.

But however I feel about, Burt defended his son made me cry.

Ooh, he looks like he's having naughty thoughts there! Yum.

Erica is cute with her "finger guns" - that's one of the livelier photos I've seen of her at CC!

I don't blame you - it was such a petty thing for them to do. Even G. has lost his SV-bounce over it, which I wouldn't have thought possible.

Have you heard Scrubs version of Over the Rainbow? It's along the same lines.

Apparently both versions are tributes to this beautiful version:
Aug. 18th, 2010 02:52 am (UTC)
Oh, I know G will get his bounce back. Me? Hmmm, we'll see. I think that was just the culmination of a lot of things.

Thanks for the links :)

I never get tired of that sexy cast. I gave up on Glee about halfway through season 1. I'm really glad you liked it and I actually have a couple of RL friends that love it. I think I've moved on. LOL
Aug. 18th, 2010 03:05 am (UTC)
You know, with Tom Welling as your lead, you would think they didn't need to look for beautiful people to surround him with. His beauty is enough for 10 people. And yet, they did.

Glee is still new for me. I make no predictions for what my reaction will me in S2 when I watch it in real time.

I believe in Tom's case, its referred to winning the jackpot in the Genetics Lottery.

Of course, any one of the options you suggested might also be true ;)

I watched a couple of episodes of Glee and was midly interested. If I happen to catch it on re-runs I watch it but I'm not really that thrilled about it. I'm glad you are!

I watch "Castle" regularly because the plots are okay and I like what NF does with his character. I watch other shows too, of course, but I can't say I LOVE any of them, except the BBC "Sherlock". Sadly, they have produced and aired only three episodes so far. I've always LOVED the Sherlock Holmes character and I really like this adaptation (for the moment at least. lol )

Those pics of Tom are so WONDERFUL! He's the most beautiful man ever, IMO (big surprise here. lol )
Aug. 18th, 2010 08:52 pm (UTC)
I tried Castle, and NF is great, but I found I really, really disliked the female lead. And since I'm supposed to want them together, that was too big a hurdle for me to overcome.

And yes, I really do think Tom is among the most beautiful men ever.
Aug. 18th, 2010 09:21 pm (UTC)
I think you saved some of the best pics for last. Tom is so beautiful, and has such an expressive face. And how I love that perfect profile. Every pic of him you've shared is a treasure! Thank you so much, for all of them. ♥

"Chuckles Hartley" "Schneider, the Panel Hog"

LMAO! Your pics of everyone are great, I'm saving them all. I especially like the one of Erica pointing, that's too cute. I don't suppose you recall the context at all?

I'm afraid my squee is broken. I've slipped back into lurker mode for the most part, and comment late on everything, if at all. I joined fandom to share my love for Smallville and have fun, and recent events have left me feeling disconnected from other fans, and alienated from the show itself. I hope I can shake it off soon.
Aug. 18th, 2010 10:57 pm (UTC)
I sort of posted pics randomly, not in any particular order, so I too was suprised to find that some of the last were some of the best.

I think the pointing one is my fav shot of Erica. Unfortunately, she, like Justin, sort of had a sour puss for much of the day.

I know exactly how you feel with the whole squee thing, and the disconnect. I think the recent FB and twitter stuff wouldn't have hit me so hard if I was feeling excited for S10 in the first place. But really, I'm just not hearing the sorts of things that would get me excited. Sure, we have the very general statement of "Clark takes his final steps towards Superman", but I'm lacking the substance to those words based on what I've heard so far.

You got some really great shots Valerie! Thank you so much for sharing them with us. *Hugs*
Aug. 18th, 2010 10:58 pm (UTC)
You're very welcome. I couldn't be more happy with my SV CC shots if I tried.

I don't recall who she was pointing at, but I think it was Cassidy.

And I agree with you that PS have no real fandom skills, so its probably better for them to just step back. I find them both very goofy and awkward.

Thanks for the pic compliments. When you consider that Cassidy, Erica and Justin were all partying the night before as well, I think you can understand why they look tired.

Finn and Rachel just feel so cliche to me. Like its happening because its been preordained, but it isn't that interesting in reality. To me, the actors just don't click all that well, not compared to how they click with others.

Lovely pictures. LOL @ Schneider being a panel hog. Tom looks wonderful as always. :D Thanks for sharing the pics.

So you watched the first season of Glee! I almost stopped watching because of the stereotyping but Kurt just tugged at my heartstrings so totally and unexpectedly. When he came out to Mercedes I cried. When he came out to his dad and the football players danced I cried. I pretty much cry whenever his dad does something awesome. The Hummels own me!

I was really digging Rachel/Finn until they kissed! She made a lunch for them to eat while rehearsing or something. I didn't get into them again until he teased her about her crazy calendar way later in the season. Then there was the whole Jesse/Finn/Puck video and that killed it again! So... But Rachel and Puck have AMAZING chemistry. So I understand what you mean about their chemistry together being lacking compared to them with other characters.

Sue Sylvester is magical. I like the balance between the faculty plots and the teen plots. I like the risks that the show takes and the vicious comedy. I'm hoping that they learn something about choreography in season 2. Those Glee club dance numbers (except in Artie's dream and Britney's hammer dance) pretty much suck.

Have no clue what's going on in Smallville fandom but I'm actually kind of excited to see a Smallville season where the writers KNOW it's the end.

Hey, I'm just calling it as I see it with Schneider. I mean, this is a guy who didn't even acknowledge any other cast member but Tom.

I think Glee is a show that plays with stereotypes, and thats OK if you are really paying attention. I know that may not make sense, but you have to give characters a lot of substance if you are also going to play with the stereotypes.

I think anytime Kurt and his father have a scene, I tear up. But I actually did that a lot over the first season. Artie realzing he wasn't going to get out the wheelchair was another one, Mercedes having the diet talk with Quinn was another one.

Puck has chemistry with everyone. But I think I'm already in love with him and Quinn pretty much. Them "baking" was possibly the cutest thing ever.

I love Sue...except for one thing. I hate when they let Will zing her back (and it happens rarely), and then we're all supposed to feel bad for Sue, for some reason.

SV fandom is SV fandom. Same ol', same ol'

Thanks so much for the last installement of Tom pics. There is almost no point any more praising his beauty: I can't add anything that hasn't been said before. Words don't suffice anyway... :)

No comment on Glee: I haven't seen it and it's not featured on German TV. That cheerleader stuff is probably too American... lol So I guess we won't see Hellcats either.
Aug. 23rd, 2010 01:42 pm (UTC)
You are very welcome. I'm just sorry this is the last batch. It sort of closes the book on CC 2010, and thats a little sad.
