Retro OTP

Last night I watched "10 Things I Hate About You," which I have always meant to see but somehow never seen even a minute of before, after spotting a shiny new scratch-free 10th anniversary edition DVD at the library.  It has a disappointingly high amount of gross 'humor,' which made me angry and is singlehandedly keeping it from a top rating, but on the other hand, ahhhhhh! 

Heath Ledger/Julia Stiles is officially my beyond-perfection screen pairing of the 90s. I imagined it might be this way based on how much I love both of them individually, but then a) they both have exceedingly perfect hair (her especially, geeze, that is like a princess), and b) Kat/Patrick is, how do you say, practically perfect in every way? SO MUCH LOVE. I've got a real short list of movie couples that own my heart, and they just rocketed to the top of it. Picspams! I need picspams, stat. I will only be able to rewatch scenes so many times before Friday.

I rather liked eveyone else in the film too, aside from not understanding why the guidance counselor had to exist, particularly Bianca** and the puppy eyes sported by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, it's just...those two. My stars! Instantly more invigorating than just about everyone across the TV landscape right now. I feel like everyone else in the world has seen this, so clearly you should hop in and start a nostalgia-fueled commentfest of reminiscence.

**3rd Rock from the Sun! I thought she seemed familiar. Well, chalk one up for my love of actors playing love interests in two completely different things.

Guess which show had the better fourth episode?

Old Post Ironies (I gotta make this an official tag): I predict that in season 2, people start whining about how much the show sucks these days.
Did not predict that I would be one of them! And yet, here we are.

Glee, 2x04, "Duets"

IN SUM: the best thing about this season, so far, has been the in-character Members Project promos that run during commercials. Those are adorable, charming, and so much better than the show itself.

CSI: Miami, 9x04, "Manhunt"
An entire episode centered around Marisol flashbacks, as Memmo busts out of jail and takes great joy in occasionally taunting people about her death? I'd like to say that at some point your seduction techniques are going to stop working on me, but...not today.
