I'm not enjoying Season 1 of HAVEN as much as I've enjoyed what I've seen of Season 2. Why is that? So far my thoughts are; Season 1 keeps flinging itself at me, begging me to like it, taking me by the hand with much spoonfeeding, and the format is monster of the week. Season 2 is where the long arc storyline is further developed, and the characters are established - so perhaps I just like sorting the cues and clues to pick up personality, relationships and the like. I don't want bite size, pre chewed little bits.
In Season 2, I figured out there was low lying chemistry between Aubrey & No Feely Guy. And a frienmy thing going between No Feely Guy and Duke. And that there were possibly also family ties between No Feely Guy & Duke. And there was comfortable flirtation between Duke & Aubrey. And those three are the three amigos meant to be Scoobying it up.
I didn't realize the Brothers Grim were Brothers. I thought old fussy gay couple actually (which in heteronormative tv means lifelong bachelor grumpy old men friends). I think they're the only thing I got pegged wrong (and not so much by).
Do I just generally not like 1st seasons? I think I liked 11th's first series, but then again, while it was a new incarnation it was hardly the first episode or first true season of Dr. Who. So... so indeed.
And this is also pinging me hard where it concerns The Witcher 2. All this fussing about it dropping you in the pool and letting you float, sink or swim. And I liked that so much, I really wished my computer was up to the job.
I keep feeling; Physican Heal Thyself is akin to Writer Know Thyself. And wow, there's a lot of parts of me to know. Things I don't even realize I'm continually expressing or rehashing until someone nods and goes 'yeah, that sounds like something you'd like' or 'yeah, that sounds like it'd annoy you'.
[And yes, sleep schedule still messed the hell up, but tween the rain, the panic attacks, computer issues and the like. I'm just going to be glad I'm breathing and able to feed myself]
