nephthys: (waterhouse - psyche)
Finally watched the unaired episode of Dollhouse S01E13 Epitaph One.

I have no words. This episode is awesome. A total mindblow and to me it was what Dollhouse should be like. Mindscrewing awesome. Of course they did not air that episode because it might have happened that someone suddenly would have thought Dollhouse might be a really cool show about what actually might happen if you create Dolls and what consequences as a whole (not "only" concerning the Dolls) that technology would and could have.

If they don't touch some of those issues this season I don't think the show deserves to come back for another. Because seriously most of the episodes suck, the issues they touch only scrap the surface of what gets unearthed in "Epitaph One". I've been asking myself why this show didn't feel innovative at all, why it never really bothered me or had me thinking about the concept of "creating humans".. Sure they make an issue about morals and most of the time try to show that it's really unethical. Well DUH of course it is. That's not really surprising. But with this episode they finally got me I'm finally fascinated. yays. problem is - as it looks now - it might well remain the only episode that manages that. But at least it gave me some tiny spark of faith that Joss Whedon really does know how to blow your mind... If only they'd let him...

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

the epilogue is nauseating. it's over thank heavens. now I can fully concentrate on AU Snarrys for the rest of my fangirly life.

I can't even start to elaborate my disgust with what she did to Snape. I've read ff handling him better. but then again she changed his character throughout the whole series so many times that it doesn't really matter either way.

[and don't get me started on the fact that Hermione did all the "cooking" during their little quests in the woods, this was major fail there.]

though I really couldn't care less I have to ask: was the whole slaughtering necessary?

the rest of the book was tolerable, I haven't been bored like I was with the 6th book.
nephthys: (reading)

look I've written my first review in my new shiny review journal [profile] selectedreading it's about Sarah Monette's Mélusine. But be warned it's rather an answer to other reviews this very book got than a review per se.v
