HENZE: Did James do his own blocking when he was sorta laying there on the stage?
KIRSTEN: “Oh, I think I’m gonna get down into this shot. Just gonna lay down.”
KULCHAK: Especially when you know James and Tim…diggin’ deep for the character.

I love you, but I’m mad at you is one of the most freeing, important things you can say in a stable relationship. Does that make sense? To know that you have the ability and the right to be mad at someone and know that it doesn’t mean things are over, that it doesn’t mean things are irreparable. That it just means I’m mad, but God, I love you. I love you. Now leave me alone.To be good, to save nothing (via creatingaquietmind)

30 Days of The West Wing:  Day 5 -Your favourite minor character(s)

So I may have a cheated a little bit (and believe it or not, this is a revised list) but there are too many wonderful characters to choose between.

Ellie Bartlet was always my favourite Bartlet sister and my second favourite of the whole First Family. Kind, grounded, subtly intelligent and the most like Jed, she was the Bartlet I related to the most from the beginning, despite her lack of screen time. Plus, the scene in the cinema between Jed and Ellie is one of the loveliest in the entire series. 

Ron Butterfield. How do I begin to explain Ron Butterfield. Ron Butterfield is flawless. I hear his moustache is insured for $10,000. You get the idea… There’s a spin-off with his name on it; just saying. 

Ainsley Hayes was the first Republican I loved on the show because, in a rare move by Sorkin, she proved that politics do not always have to be divisive. Her dynamic with Sam was thoroughly enjoyable and its lack of closure is one of the many reasons I wish that Ainsley could have stayed at least one more season. 

Joey Lucas. WHY WAS THIS GIRL NOT A REGULAR INSTEAD OF MANDY?! Her wit, feistiness and ability to get under Josh’s skin made sure that every guest appearance was a delight. Perhaps one of the reasons I love her so much is that she’s essentially the female Josh Lyman, and had Donna never existed, I would have wanted Joey and Josh together for sure. 

Margaret Hooper was one of those characters where you know that every time she’s on screen, she’ll make you laugh. Whether it be her cheesy jokes (like the one above) or the deadpan delivery of all her lines, I always considered her as an honorary member of the main cast. 

Percy Fitzwallace was a BAMF, let’s face it. I adored his no nonsense attitude, almost always agreed with him on the moral issues and although we didn’t get to see it much, he was definitely a guy with a massive heart. His death during the Gaza arc was all the more heartbreaking, because here was a guy who’d served 38 years in the military, but he was killed during a diplomatic mission.

hendrixsalison whispered: What is farscape about


i initially read this message as ‘what is a farscape’ and was all INDEED MY FRIEND. WHAT IS A FARSCAPE IT IS INDESCRIBABLE.

okay i’m gonna do the thing because tumblr needs to know about the thing:

largely taken from wiki with some added points by yours truly:

  • Farscape features a diverse ensemble of characters who are initially escaping from corrupt authorities in the form of a militaristic puritanical/secretly-hedonistic organisation called the Peacekeepers.
  • everyone on this show is amazingly talented, so much physicality, so much everything, jfc
  • The protagonists live inside (the most beautiful, awe-inspiring) giant space-dwelling creature - a leviathan named Moya, which serves as their ship. think everything you feel when you think about whales singing through the depths and then put that in space. screw u doctor who, you could never moya.
  • In the first episode, they are joined by the main character, John Crichton, a slightly bonkers modern-day American astronaut with daddy issues who accidentally flew into the entrance of a wormhole near Earth during an experimental test flight.
  • On the same day, another stranger is picked up by Moya: a stranded Peacekeeper named Aeryn Sun, who slowly unwinds the threads of peacekeeperdom from her mind and body but never stops being precisely who she is - which is fire and ice.
  • other characters include: a megalomaniacal but adorable ex-king of kings, a disgraced beserker warrior, a peaceful goddess-priestess with innate and terrifying capacity for violence, a pansexual revolutionary girl alien (actually she is my favourite just look at her goddamn)
  • John makes lots of enemies, basically for a) being an idiot, b) being a genius, c) being in angry love with everything
  • the show gradually unfolds progressive arcs beginning with their fugitive status from the peacekeepers to vendetta hunts to an overarching desire of them all to find home - which is one of the coolest parts of the story - that they are lost in the uncharted wild space. This arc includes John’s increasingly dark and obsessive search to find another wormhole back to Earth, which eventually leads into an arms race for weaponized wormhole technology.
  • so leads into lots and lots of inter-species politics and warfare and espionage and double/triple crossing in which our core crew of characters are the incendiary wild cards.
  • Secondary arcs explore the way in which the characters change due to their influences and adventures together, most notably John over his obsession with wormhole technology, his ‘do you love me?/beyond hope’ feral frontier genius/lionheart relationship with Aeryn, and the neural clone of Scorpius that haunts John in his brain leading to increasingly raw and disturbing identity politics and horror.
  • this sounds super dark but the show actually has an incredibly self-aware, genre savvy sense of humour, which includes body horror parody and body swaps and the grotesquery of alien bodies type stuff as well as genre parodies (supernatural i love u but u could never). the dark gets incredibly dark but the show never ever gets lost in its wallowing - it is crazy smart about it.
  • lots and lots of culture and day-to-day domestic weirdness of living on a spaceship with other species and every single relationship + character has development and arcs that are followed through and followed through hard

basically no other show will ever get near it in my heart of hearts.

tl;dr take the fifth element, throw it in a blender with darkest timeline star trek, a touch of doctor who and a whole lot of shakespeare, let sit, add an acid trip and place on high a top the thing. 

a+++ would let rip out my heart and rearrange the insides of my head into a kaleidoscopic fever dream again
