30 Day TV Show Challenge

Day 14:  Favorite Male Character

I can’t choose just one, so in no particular order.

Angel, BTVS & Angel - Angel was this grumpy old soul who made mistakes, who lost a son, and love, and battled his inner demons, and outer demons, and tried and most of the time failed to make the world a little better, not for glory, not because he was chosen, but because he decided to fight, and in the process he became a hero.

Jesse Pinkman, Breaking Bad - Take a stereotypical stoner drug dealer and make him pathetic, and vulnerable, and heartbreaking, and funny.  Watch this malevolent force come into his life and manipulate him emotionally over and over, because this kid, who has no one is so desperate for approval, and love and acceptance that he suffers and suffers.  The only thing I prayed for in this series finale is that Jesse would somehow survive and be at peace.

Chuck Bartowski, Chuck - he started as this goofball nerd and by the end of the series you completely bought him as this action hero spy stud.  But, through it all he kept his heart of gold.

Matt Saracen, Friday Night Lights -  He was thrust into the limelight by circumstance, but he rose to the challenge.  He was the ultimate good guy, he took care of everyone around him like his grandmother.  He was abandoned by both of his parents, but found a surrogate father in Coach Taylor.  A lot of the heart of the show was bound up in this kid’s journey.

Ned the Piemaker, Pushing Daisies - Ned brings people back to life, but when he revived Chuck, the first love from his childhood, he was the one who gained a life.  And even though he can never touch her again, their chaste love story is one of the most romantic I’ve seen.

Pacey Witter, Dawson’s Creek - If Dawson was the intellect, then Pacey was the heart of the show.  He came from a blue collar background, he never expected to make anything of his life, he struggled after high school to figure out what he wanted to do with his life, he made bad choices, and he made great choices.  He was wise beyond his years and he always (okay most of the time) remembered what was really important in life.  He loved with all his heart and in this teen drama, his portrayal in the Joey love story was surprisingly mature.  I hoped and wanted her to choose him at the end, and was gratified that the show agreed.

Oliver Queen, Arrow (so I had to include this one right) - The thing I find interesting about Oliver Queen is that he has never felt like he deserved happiness.  He ran away from it before he ended up on that Island.  And those five years of mental, emotional, and physical abuse as he said stripped everything away.  Since then, he’s slowly rebuilding and reshaping himself, finding and appreciating what and who he is and trying not to make the same mistakes.  He’s a painfully slow learner, lol, but I find his journey compelling and inspiring.

Okay, for this one, my top 6 favorite shows, I tried really hard to think about… if I could only watch six shows for the rest of my life, what would I choose? These shows are all *in* me in some way.

This is ranked by how essential this show seems to my existence/sanity/happiness, at this moment in time.

The Leftovers
30 Rock
Friday Night Lights
The West Wing
Twin Peaks
The X-Files

Extremely Honorable Mentions: Parks and Recreation, Hannibal, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, ER, Seinfeld, Freaks and Geeks, Days of Our Lives (the show that taught me to love tv at all)

Tonight is the first night of ‪Manhattanhenge‬ 2015! 

For Manhattan, a few special days come when the setting Sun aligns precisely with the Manhattan street grid, creating a radiant glow of light across Manhattan’s brick and steel canyons, simultaneously illuminating both the north and south sides of every cross street of the borough’s grid. 

Here are the dates for Manhattanhenge 2015:

Half Sun on the Grid
Friday, May 29 8:12 P.M. EDT
Monday, July 13 8:21 P.M. EDT

Full Sun on the Grid
Saturday, May 30 8:12 P.M. EDT
Sunday, July 12 8:20 P.M. EDT 

For best effect, position yourself as far east in Manhattan as possible. But ensure that when you look west across the avenues you can still see New Jersey. Clear cross streets include 14th, 23rd, 34th. 42nd, 57th, and several streets adjacent to them. The Empire State building and the Chrysler building render 34th street and 42nd streets especially striking vistas.

Olicity Prompt: Mundane Nights

Prompt: From @captainolicitysbedroom Olicity: Oliver is chased by the League or the Bravta (I don’t care which or who) and Felicity saves him. Like another way they could have met. (He’s the Arrow and she’s a nerd.) Maybe have them met at a gas station? 

As always @blondiegrl00 my dear friend and beta you truly do rock!

Mundane Nights

The air was crisp upon her face as she stepped out of the car. She lightly drummed her fingers along the rim of the gas pump and watched as the nearly empty parking lot became even more vacant. She glanced down at her old, almost useless Hello Kitty wristwatch watching the little hand ticking slowly by. She sighed. It was 10:30 on a Friday night and here she was standing beside her leased Volvo. 

Felicity had been in Starling City for nearly two years now and still her life consisted of getting up before the dawn had even crested over the fog laden city. She’d shuffle her weary, sleep deprived body towards the small but still well appointed bathroom. She’s trip over her misplaced shoes since she nearly always began the morning without her eye glasses. If she was even slightly awake she’d manage to turn the light on, but most days she’d just stumble through the darkened space until she felt the cool metal of the shower knob. Once showered, she’d go through her normal routine. 

Her breakfast consisted of whatever she could find as she basically flung herself out the door and today was no different. Usually, her evenings were just as routine as her days except for tonight. Tonight she needed to leave the comfort of her overly spacious townhouse because she was out of mint chocolate chip ice cream. However, this led to her noticing that her gas tank was bordering on fumes so before driving to the other side of the city to get the brand she preferred she decided to feed the dying beast. That, as it turned out, would take her mundane evening and completely turn it on its head. 

She felt the hard pull as the pump signaled the tank was full. She glanced at the price, rolling her eyes while placing the pump back in its holder. She was about to put the cap back on the tank when she heard a loud bang coming from the left side of the now desolate parking lot. She glanced over the hood seeing nothing through her now dew covered spectacles. She squinted slightly and again saw nothing as another loud bang erupted into the night. Her hands trembled slightly as she slammed the cover of the gas tank shut. Her lungs felt tight as the cold air quickly filled them. Her nerves were now rapidly fraying as yet another noise sounded around her. 

Still nothing could be seen in the inky black of the night. She fumbled with the door’s latch dropping her keys to the ground as a result. “Great.” She groaned as she bent down to retrieve them.
