Of course, the commercials eventually got to me, and I wound up watching bits and pieces here and there starting around the holidays, where I determined that because of Mick, I was most definitely going to go back in summer (a/k/a "as soon as I have free time") and watch it from the beginning. That time is now.
In conclusion: Mick/Beth just firmly planted itself on my Current Ships list, and I have 14 more episodes to
I love how the conclusion was longer than the preceding part. *changes topics*
I think what I liked most about the pilot was that it didn't feel like a pilot, where things often get turned upside down between there and episode 2 as the show finds itself. It was already very cohesive and put together. I especially liked that dream interview at the beginning, where they come up with an excellent platform to douse you with information about their particular interpretation of vampire characteristics.
I also like the flashbacks to old cases, and I'm impressed that Coraline showed up in the very first ep, although now I'm very curious how she goes from that scene to being whole and hale (well, for being undead) later on. Still looking forward to her. ("A Knight's Tale" was on TV last night, and when I wasn't mooning over Heath Ledger and wishing he'd kept his hair like that longer, I was busy grumbling about how Jocelyn's ugly hair doesn't match her beauty. Not a problem in Moonlight.)
The only thing that really makes me squirm and whimper are the horrible horrible horrible things involving blood in needles or straight from the source. Gross gross gross gross GROSS. *distressed*
In an unrelated note, Josef had better get really awesome at some point in the future, because right now the word I want to use in describing him is "huge douche" (sorry, that's 2 words) and I do not understand all the fangirling that was going on for him in the post-strike era. It can't be because he's cute, because he's not. At all. If it turns out this guy is the Captain Jack Harkness of Moonlight, I'm going to be very upset.
Need another fix now. *runs off* (and I'm keeping the "episode reviews" tag on here for organizational purposes...it's close enough)
