1) I started watching Teen Wolf. I'm not really sure why. Actually, I think it was because Andrea, Brandi and CJ were and I wanted to have something to talk to them about, haha.

2) It doesn't suck, as I assumed it would. I mean, I'd like characterization and metaphor, but I'll settle for lack of (even casual) homophobia, added shirtlessness and "WTF?!" (in a good way) reactions to every episode.

3) CJ wants me to write fic for this show. This is most likely NOT going to happen. One, because I need something to either parody or meta in order to write, and this show already does one and doesn't really lend to the other. Two, I could never write Derek/Stiles for the same reason I rarely wrote Angel: I can't write characters who aren't composed entirely of dialogue. If I wrote fic for this show, it would probably be Scott/Jackson/Allison, haha!

4) I loved watching BtVS (duh) because, while it was a high school show created when I was in my late 20s, David and James and Charisma were all older than I, and Nicky and Aly are close to my age. The mom on Teen Wolf is two years younger than I am. Ouch.

5) I'm up to the 4th episode of Season 2 (yes, I paid for Hulu Plus to watch Season 2) and wow, did I not see some of this stuff coming.

6) Tigh!

7) Jonah starts ballet next Wednesday (he'll have it once a week for an hour while he's four). He's going to the school that Ballet Oklahoma draws from, so here's hoping he had talent and endurance. I get to go buy wee black tights and dance shoes today! (He chose ballet over gymnastics. Whatever -- exercise is exercise. And ballet is actually $5 cheaper a month, at least while he's four.)

8) I really want to talk Teen Wolf with someone who wants to talk about Teen Wolf. Call me. Or email me at crazydiamondsue@gmail.com if you've lost my number. I don't know why I want to talk about it. I just do. And Vinnie gives me an indulgent "FML" when I try to talk about it; one, because she has no interest and two because I'm interrupting her mainlining of Big Bang Theory.

9) Teen Wolf

You know season 2 is free on the MTV website?

Also, I think I can totally talk you around to having meta on this show . . . mine is in terms of Jackson, Jackson, Jackson! and how the kind of character he plays is pretty much never allowed to have layers on this kind of show and yet. . .layers, he has.

Also, I've decided that when Danny says, "Jackson, you're not my type" this clearly means that he assumes Jackson is a top (Danny is also a top), and this is reasonable because JACKSON has always assumed Jackson is a top, until Derek pushes him into that wall. . .that leads to re-examination of a lot of things.

Feel free to discuss.

I would love to have a full ranging conversation about how this show is and isn't like BtVS. Remember how the werewolves were always the most complicated monsters in the Buffyverse, because they really WERE people some of the time? (and the people who went after werewolves were always the most vile of the bad guys, which if you think about it is a little funny considering that the show is mostly about SLAYing monsters.)

Also, I want to talk about the girls. Allison could be the protagonist of a different show. The end of season 1, particularly, focuses a lot on Allison not wanting to be the one who is always rescued, not wanting to be the stereotypical girl who cries when she gets a ticket -- yet the show doesn't seem to know how to follow through on that.

I also want to talk about Derek's pack-gathering decisions but you might not have gotten far along enough to see that.
