Nikita 3x04

Share

Yeah I should have updated this along time ago. Truth be told, until recently I forgot about it.

Anyway, I'm interested to know what you all think of Nikita season 3, specifically episode 4. I got onto Nikita through Hawaii Five-0 fanfiction, where an author had written a Steve/Kono scene based off a scene in Nikita - the scene where Michael and Nikita hook up - the final scene of 1x17. I had to say, I had no idea what to expect from watching Nikita as I had never heard of the show let alone watched it before. but I fell in love with it.

Nikita is in my opinion, such a great show because it was unpredictable and always left you guessing. It wasn't one of those cliche type crime shows, where you could always guess the killer or what was going to happen. Each and every episode felt like a movie, there was so much jam-packed into every episode, and so many twists and turns in the storylines. At the conclusion of S1 I was like, "oh my gosh, must watch S2 NOW!" it was that much of a dramatic finale.

When S2 ended I was like, wow, okay, I want to watch S3 and see what it'll be like. While I like every episode, there has been nothing that spectacular until episode 4 when I feel the series has started to pick up. Episode 1 was like, wow, it's a good episode but it's not really a season premiere or anything. It certainly had it's moments but after the s2 finale where Ryan took over as head of Division, the show couldn't really go anywhere...

They sort of made a huge think out of Alex and Sean's relationship at the end of s2 but then they did nothing really with it in the first few episodes of Nikita until episode 3/4 leaving a huge amount of Salex fans dissapointed. In episode 4 we have some amazing Salex moments including the "I love you scene" and I admit I had a fanfgirl moment, but Sean's attitude in this episode seemed to some extent to come from nowhere and seemed a little out of character for him or more specifically the whole dinner scene. As much as I enjoyed that scene Sean got on my nerves cause he felt so out of character. The I love you scene was aswesome in this episode and, I felt, realistic. It was a really nice moment where Sean finally got to say what he felt, and left Alex blindsighted for once

It was nice in this episode to see Owen and Amanda come back. You can't have a season of Nikita without Owen and/or Amanda. I find the whole storyline about Amanda wanting Owen an intriguing storyline and hope that it will continue throughout the season. It'll at least give some familiarity back to a show which I feel has lost it's direction.

I'm interested to know if Alex will go back to her addiction or not and who will find out/help her. I think it'll be Michael and feel that if it is, Alex might let him in. My thoughts on this is that she won't want to let Nikita in cause she'll feel she disappointed her let her down. Sean, she probably won't go to after he didn't pick up his phone at the end of the episode... Anyway, that's my speculation. We'll be sure to find out in the next episode.

The series has finally started to pick up, so it'll be interesting to see how it plays out from here on out.

If you were going on a week-long vacation to a tropical paradise and could only take five items, what would you bring?

A good book, writing pad (or paper), a pen, my imagination and my camera

Belonging

Share
Criminal Minds., A.J cook, JJ

We started belonging in English. 250 words on the importance of human relations - why? I don't understand? I don't understand human relationships, I don't understand humans, and I don't understand belonging. Why are human relations important? Why is belonging important? Why do we need to feel accepted into a society that won't accept us? That will judge us?

The good thing is though, that the other English Adv. teacher said you could use TV shows. I'm doing S5 of Angel, because there is so much belonging there. Spike at the beginning, as a ghost, wandering and trying to understand how/why he came to Wolfram & Hart and why he needs to be there. Trying to understand where he belongs in the world...

And then obviously the whole Fred/Wesley/Illyria triangle. Not Fade Away is a perfect example of this which is one episode of two that I am doing for belonging... I can not wait to use Angel!

I'm actually rather excited to do this for belonging.

I HATE MY LIFE! Anything I do, right, or wrong, I'm in trouble for it, and I am always blamed. If someone drops a bomb on the other side of the world, then it's my fault. It hurts so much! I have no friends, I barley have a family. I only want one person in life, to actually like me for who I am and to not be blamed because something goes wrong! I am forever being punished for what other people do! And that is my sin!
If you could cast one type of magic spell, which would you choose, and why?

Could be absolutly anything, no one really knows. Smith, this would be the perfect question for you!

Which song would you pick to describe your romantic life, and why?

Any song about a non-existant love life.
