Meme, as shamelessly stolen from inspired by mareen

This one goes like: Pick 5 shows, then look at the questions and answer them.

My shows:

1) Vampire Diaries
2) Grimm
3) Supernatural
4) Person of Interest
5) Merlin



1. Who is your favorite character in 2?
That would be Monroe. Though I have really grown to like Nick, simply adore the mystery of Renard and also love a character that was a late addition and could have crashed and burned as a total Sue but didn't which is Rosalee. Still, Monroe had my heart first. The Big Bad Wolf doing Pilates? Fantastic.


2. Who is your least favorite character in 1?
Hm, there isn't really a character I truly, outright hate on this show, just some I find more or less interesting than others. On this level it's probably Matt because there just isn't much going on with his character. Maybe if they gave him a plotline.


3. What’s your favorite episode of 4?
Episode 10. Because that montage to "When things explode" is one of the best sequences I have seen on TV. Period.

.
4. What is your favorite season of 5?
Considering only Seasons 1 and 4 were good? Well, 1 and 4. Though of these only one was good till the end and didn't fuck it up with an infuriating Finale. So, it comes down to Season 1.


5. What’s your favorite relationship in 3?
Easy, Dean and Cas. I loved the brotherly relationship in the beginning but the show managed to completely destroy it for me by hitting just about every anti-kink I have relationshiip-wise during Seasn 5 and anti-redemption of doom. So screw it, Dean/Cas it is.
.

6. Who is your anti-relationship in 2?
No idea. Nick/Adlind maybe? Simply because I find Adalind rather boring. Otherwise, I'm pretty flexible ship-wise on this show,


7. How long have you watched 1?
I watched the Pilot and was bored out of my skull. I watched three more and stopped. I only picked up again during hiatus between Seasons 1 and 2 because so many people were talking about it getting better. So, um, basically for two years.


8. How did you become interested in 3?
I liked the subject matter and adored Jensen Ackles from his Dark Angel days so I started watching.


9. Who is your favorite actor in 4?
Jim Caviezel, I guess. I barely knew him before (never watched POC, just know about the bruhaha surrounding it like any person not living under a rock at the time) and didn't have an opinion about him acting-wise one way or another. Granted, it helps that his character is such a badass but I like how he portrays him.


10. Which show do you prefer 1, 2, or 5?
Overall? Vampire Diaries, I think. It has lost a bit of steam but still is consisently a great show IMO.


11. Which show have you seen more episodes of 1 or 3?
SPN is going in its 8th year while VD is only going in its third so by nature, I saw more of Supernatural.


12. If you could be anyone from 4, who would you be?
Are you kidding me? I would be Reese. And when people bug me, I casually walk up to them and shoot out their kneecaps. Or I total their cars with them in them. :D


13. How would you kill off your favorite character in 5?
Heh, like in the legends. I'm a fan of the classics so he'd go to Avalon to wait for whenever.
.

14. Would a 3/4 crossover work?
Jesus Christ, no. Seriously, you could probably crossover 3 with 1, 2 and heck, even 5 but not with 4.


15. Pair two characters in 1 that would make an unlikely, but strangely okay couple?
Caroline and Klaus. *lalalalala, I can't hear you, I'm rooting for them*


16. Overall, which show has the better cast, 3 or 5?
That is difficult to say as 3 has pretty much a bare bones cast at this point while the cast of 5 keeps growing so it seems slightly unfair to compare the two. Bot have actors I adore. If I go by overall ratio of total cast members which I adore, Merlin has more of them, Though the suffering I endure for Jensen Ackles is perhaps greater than all of them combined.
.

17. Which has the better theme music, 2 or 4?
I like the intro of POI and Grimm doesn't have much in the way of a theme so 4.

ahahaaa! I'm trying to imagine a PoI/Supernatural crossover, but I only get to Reese's whispery voice saying "Fuck this shit" over the constant Dean/Sam drama and then go and shot some ghosts and demons up, while Dean and Sam stare sadly at each other.

That's what I was thinking, hence my "hell no" reaction. *g* Though maybe if a xover meant writers crossing over, we could have some actual plot and action back on SPN instead of neverending, redundant, stock-footage emo-porn.

urgh. Yeah. After watching the SPN finale I wondered about what actual capable writers would have done with that. Imagine one of the PoI writers (doesn't even matter which one) writing the scene of Dean, Sam, Cas and Meg breaking into Dick's headquaters. It would have been an awesome action scene with actual urgency and a feeling of danger around it, instead of that snoozefest. When you watch both finales back to back, the difference in script quality is staggering.

Especially if you consider that their stories weren't that different. Just that in one episode they wanted to get into a building and in the other they wanted to get out of a building.

I try not to because it makes me cry. :(

Granted, the show was never a real action palooza and it always, always had trouble with pacing, continuity and basic storytelling but it wasn't like the last 2.5 years either.

Not just the Finales, the whole Seasons IMO. Though admittedly I adored the last thirty seconds of the SPN Finale. At least there is potential if they don't fuck it up.

Hmmmm. I've been hearing a lot about VD, but like you, I stopped after the first two eps or so. May be worth a second try...

Heee, crazy crossovers. :-)

It definitely takes a while to find its stride, half the first Season I'd say but I loved it for being one of the fast-paced shows I know. The plot is moving forward like a speedboat and about five or six characters have plots concurrently. Some shows don't even manage that with two. *cough*

Heee, crazy crossovers. :-)

Heh. Vampire Diaries and SPN would work pretty well, I think. In fact, it might even be a little on the nose. Though I'd pay good money for a Dean/Damon combo. Damon's last best friend was a vampire hunter so he should be fine with it and Dean might like his style. :D

And Grimm? They could be hunters comparing notes.

But I admit I'd be really curious for a SPN/Merlin-crossover. Time-travel to the middle ages? Woohoo.
