Fandom round-up - Vox Audita Perrit, Literra Scripta Manet.... — LiveJournal
The heard word is lost, the written letter remains...
Fandom round-up
Haven't watched 'Secret Smile' yet, but I did get to watch 'Attack of the Graske', since it finished downloading this morning. I love Ten. His expression when he opens the TARDIS at the beginning is just so iconable.

Goblet of Fire was also much fun yesterday. I would've thought the crowds would've petered out after Narnia's release, but there were actually a lot of people at the cinemas! Including two girls next to Libby and I who talked all the way through the movie. Especially during the scene in the prefect's bathroom, which immediately marked them as the Daniel Radcliffe/Harry species of fangirl. Though I also suspect crossbreeding with the equally dangerous Rupert Grint/Ron species, since there were some mumblings at the start of the film. Also, Viktor Krum's awful dance moves during the scene with The Weird Sisters are love.

I probably should mention something about Lost, since I decided to give it a go during summer. I'm halfway through the first season at the moment, and....um, yeah. I really, really like it. It will adequately fill the JJ Abrams show-shaped void that Alias will leave after the fifth season finishes. Especially since it has Terry O'Quinn. John Locke's got to be one of the most interesting and just inherently cool characters to watch on tv at the moment. I'm in awe. Oh, and Sayid too. And Sawyer (which is unusual for me, considering the type of characters I tend to like in tv shows/movies). Bleh, the only character I probably don't like is Jack, possibly because he's gotten two episodes devoted to his backstory so far (Yes, you have father issues. We understand, dammit.).

So yeah. Lost? Good. I've heard rumblings that season two isn't as good as the first, but since I'm an Alias fan, I'm used to drawn-out plot arcs, cliffhangers and a general sense that it's going to take forever to actually get an answer to a burning question.

Current Mood: chipper chipper

Oh good, SECRET SMILE arrived safely! I meant to email you an apology for not including a note or something - I usually do, just the item itself looks unfriendly, but I was so busy wrapping parcels and sealing down envelopes at that point that I sealed it absent-mindedly.

Thanks very much for the lovely card! Looks most Russian ;)

Oh, it's fine. I did exactly the same thing with your dvd, I'm afraid. I didn't even find the time to label it, but you can rest assured that it is Blind Flight that's in there. :)

OMG jenavira and I tried watching "Secret Smile". But he's all really creepy and scary. And we had to stop watching it because it was making us hate David Tennant. meep.

Hey, I just found you. You're one of the only other Tennant fans in Brisbane. We share so many interests it's freaky! You're so lucky to have Secret Smile and TCI, I've got bloody dialup so I can't download them. I've added you to my AOL buddy list hope that's alright. We should have a chat some time.

Season two of Lost is...well, frustrating, I suppose. You do find out what is down the hatch (which I thought was well done) but instead of continuing to explore it, it's like the show has put hatch-info on hold while they continue to give more backstory about the characters. In the end, I bailed out after the fourth episode.
I stopped watching Alias a year ago because it just got too dumb. But at least it had gunfights and things to fill in the void of "WHATS GOING ON WITH RAMBALDI OKAY??"

P.S. I love Sayid.

P.P.S. It's really hard to talk about Lost without spoiling it! :D
