2. Favourite television show from the early 2000′s?
Battlestar Galactica, Gilmore Girls, The Closer, and Dead Like Me are all topnotch.
3. Favourite television show from the 2010′s +?
Downton Abbey, Major Crimes [seasons 1-3 specifically], Steven Universe, The Worst Witch, and Father Brown. I could honestly list like 20 more, but I figured 5 is more than enough.
8. Favourite television soundtrack?
Answered here. :)
10. What was your favorite new release of the year?
The Care and Feeding of Waspish Widows by Olivia Waite. A slowburn, friends-to-lovers wlw romance that also involves pining and bedsharing? Sign me right up. A+. Highly recommend. 10/10 will not regret.
11. What was your favorite book that has been out for a while, but you just now read?
Cover Her Face by P.D. James. It’s a mystery originally published in 1962 and I found it very enjoyable. I’m reading the second one in the series right now.
20. What was your most anticipated release? Did it meet your expectations?
The Once and Future Witches by Alix E. Harrow. It absolutely exceeded my expectations. I hadn’t read anything else by Alix E. Harrow, but the premise immediately grabbed my attention. Alternate history + magic is real + women being powerful and bamfy? Like just sign me up. And then to have everything actually delivered on…it was was great. Highly recommend.
A: So many adored connections. Carson & Rodney from SGA, plus Radek with both of them to a lesser extent. Also John/Elizabeth from the same show along with their friendships with Teyla & Ronon. Billy & Kimberly from MMPR because they are adorable friends (I had to spend years rewiring my brain to see them as platonic buddies only). Taylor & Eric in the TF/WF crossover were amazing. Doggie & Kat in SPD were very cute too. Pretty much any combo of the SG-1 team, and yes I’m counting Jonas, Cam, & Vala (I really only romantically ship Jack/Sam & Daniel/Vala). Janet’s interactions with the first four are great too. Finn & Poe from Star Wars, plus the core trio of Anakin, Padme, & Obi-Wan. Also Cassian/Jyn although I adore all of Rogue One. It’s been five years and I’m still on the Iris/Eddie shipwreck (oops…). Will & Chaz from Foster’s Dinotopia novels. Tom & Carl from Young Wizards, both for their relationship and how they mentor the titular characters. Um, that’s probably enough for now.
I: Hmm. I don’t think so, mostly because I tend to stay in my own corner.
J: Not that I can think of, but it’s probably only a matter of time.
K: Uh-oh. If I have to choose just one character, it has to be Doctor Meredith Rodney McKay. He starts out as a jerk on SG-1, only to end becoming kinder & more respectful over time on SGA. Which is impressive, given how it would have probably been easier for him to stay aloof and prickly due to everything he goes through.
Thanks for this!
