So while "watching" Revenge last week (by which I mean mostly fast-forwarding because this show isn't my thing, but Trucco is there), I decided that it would be awesome to make a gif. Then I realized I forgot how, it had been so long, so I had to learn all over again.

Which is a long-winded way of saying - here, have a gif of Trucco blowing shit up.

And that was just one of the "not happy" tv I saw this week, damn. Most depressing week of tv ever, y/y?
- OUAT. Not 'sad' exactly, but not happy either. Kind of bittersweet/awwww.
- TVD. *sniffle* SAD.
- Nikita. argh, feeeeeels. Except SHOES!!!
- Spartacus. OMG. That episode so harsh, so ... uncompromising. Brutal. Heart-breaking.
Okay thankfully there was that ONE SCENE where Agron was like 'um, thanks, lady, but no thanks' and I probably laughed too much at that, because the rest of it was just wrenching.

But omg, I watched half that episode praying Spartacus would come HURRY QUICK PLEASE MAKE IT STOP - because everyone was so terrible and heart-breaking. CRIXUS NOOOOO (I mean, I know it happens, but it's awful to watch him and Naevia turn toward only wanting vengeance), but then Saxa being so brave, and Gannicus somehow stepping up as Crixus falls, but Agron also being a jealous snit and you just know that's going to come back on him.

And then ugh Tiberius too and that horrible horrible decimation scene. And future Caesar slinking around, al "damn, this is easy, I barely have to do anything to make it all fall apart..."

FUTURE ME IS ALREADY CRYING AT THE FINALE BTW. (I kind of hope that at least a few of them die in the coming episodes, because I don't think I can take them all getting crucified in the finale. That's what this show has reduced me to)

At least Person of Interest wasn't terribly sad.

I keep making posts and then deleting them. blah.

I have this strange feeling that the boat works as metaphor for me.

I've been watching Revenge through On Demand, so I haven't been able to fast-forward through it but I have managed to turn looking up in time for Trucco scenes into an art. Glad he had the opportunity to do some work and be on my TV again, but I'm also glad he'll be moving on to something else now.

I know right? I kept hearing it was good, and maybe it is when you actually care about any of them, but since I don't, it was so easy to just go to the Evil Ryan Brothers(tm) and skip most of the rest.

DAMN IT PLEASE TRUCCO GET ON SHIELD THAT IS ALL I WANT. IN MY LIFE.... (which yeah, I know didn't happen for the pilot, but I STILL HAVE HOPE. lol. )

At least the gif inspired me to actually sign into FYMT since I've been letting it sit for like six months. it's more inspiring to make stuff than just mechanically reblog it, I guess. So now there is stuff in the queue (incl your stuff, though I got lazy and stopped going back too far so don't feel bad I didn't pick them all up... )

(Apparently at some point I accidentally double-posted. Sorry!)

But yeah, I don't know about Revenge. After one whole episode I kept finding more interesting things to do while I was watching it. There was a lot about it I just couldn't get into. I will give it credit, though: I definitely felt like Revenge knows what it wants to be, even if that's not something I'm interested in.

And I will take endless cycles of Trucco on my dash any time, so hooray for FYMT!

Oh Trucco...he and JR Bourne really got screwed over by their (unnecessary and rather pointless) roles on Revenge. At least they were nice to look at? Plus Bourne has Teen Wolf so he's set but Trucco needs something else, preferably something I already watch and like :)

TVD :(
I haven't watched this week's Nikita yet.

SPARTACUS!!! Ugh, this show is KILLING me! Obviously Crixus and Naevia are creating their own doom and I really hate that but I also totally understand where they're coming from. The only way Naevia survived her trauma was to make all Romans into an enemy she could fight. And I think Crixus already assumed all Romans = evil, simply because he's never had genuine interaction with any that weren't. And now they'll die horribly and I'll be super sad but hopefully they'll die together in battle so maybe it won't be as bad? Stupid show :(

It looks like Trucco's trying to find a role in which he doesn't die, going by his latest tweet. THAT WOULD HELP YES MICHAEL. lol But I'll just hope for something decent - both HIMYM and Revenge sounded like good ideas, but man, they both sucked so hard.

SPARTACUS. :( :( :( , that was just brutal - and I just want to put my hands through the screen and STOP THEM SO BADLY. ugh, no, don't leave, you'll DIEEEEE. (though I guess it's not like sticking around is going to end up any better, at least for some people.... )

you know when I realized I had a problem? That bit with Caesar and how pointedly he was being told that Spartacus had nothing to do with the woman's mistreatment, and I found myself hoping that maybe Caesar might help him die more quickly. And then I realized THAT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. And I really fear that both Agron and Gannicus will die with him, if one of them doesn't bite it earlier, and there will be so much ugly sobbing. Maybe Saxa will make it out alive?

Not dying would definitely be better, Michael :D

I think they'll throw us a bone and let one of the name rebels survive. I'd guess Nasir or Saxa, at this point. Though I have a hard time believing either of them would willingly leave the rebels, even once the fighting is gone.

Which is why I'm kind of hoping Spartacus will order one of his people to get Laeta to safety and that person will live because Laeta will claim said person worked for her all along and never participated in the rebellion.
