Why Sarah Jane Adventures is a terrific TV-show

I’ve been rewatching this show for a while now, and decided to make a list of all the reasons Sarah Jane Adventures will always be a terrific TV Show, and why Sarah Jane Smith is an absolutely terrific character

  • Sarah Jane is an older woman, and still the main character. Elisabeth Sladen was closer to 60 at the series start, Sarah Jane at least close to 50. And she is still center stage in the show.
  • Sarah Jane has had a rather crappy life. Let’s be honest, shall we? She has lived most of her life already when the show begins, and it has been very far from the perfect, successful life she might have dreamed of.
  • The message that it is never too late to succeed, and have a good life. Before The Doctor, Sarah Jane’s life hadn’t even started yet. After The Doctor, It took Sarah Jane 40 years of not knowing what to do with her life before she figured out what she wanted to do, and before it started looking brighter again. Isn’t that a splendid message?
  •  You don’t need a guy to always save the day. She learned that through 40 years of uneccesary pinning, and then she really take sit all on on her own.
  • The well-functioning intergenerational friendship between the ‘companions’ and Sarah Jane. People doesn’t have to be your own age for you to be  your friends and for you to enjoy eachothers company. ❤
  • There is nothing wrong with being smart, or a little socially awkward. It doesn’t take away from you as a person. Shown through Luke the new-born teenager boy genious.
  • The honest emotions in this show. They don’t hide anything. They show how much Sarah Jane hurts every time she find The Doctor and every time something happens, there is several scenes of Rani running home to hug her parents and cry when something upsetting happens etc. They give all emotions the characters experience the space to run their course and not just be over in the blink of an eye.
  • Relatable Characters. I could imagaine meeting every single non-alien (with the exception of Luke and Sky) character in this show irl
  • The actors /actresses - they’re all fantastic at what they do, especially Elisabeth Sladen
  • Logic and consistency- over five seasons they manage to hold it toghther very well and even though there is a lot of aliens and ridicoules threats the solutions never feels half-finished or rushed. It always feels as though it logical based on the events of the episode.
  • ‘Multiple parts’ or serial adventures. Just like Classic Doctor Who 90% of SJA is built up out of serials, two parts, which in my opinion  leaves more room for development and fulfillment of the plot. BUT since the episodes are only 30 min/each, it still doesn’t result in too many things being left hanging.

That is all. If you have your own ideas reblog and comment it! 😁

  • So they are done with Hogwarts, the world is their oyster, freedom ect 
  • and then
  • shit
  • “Pads we have nowhere to live” 
  • “I’ve got a real big cardboard box you can share Prongs mate you don’t have to live with your parents.” 
  • James and Sirius have a panic because they are adults and do they know how to adult? No. 
  • Lily and Remus are watching like ??? 
  • Purebloods are not good at getting on the property ladder due to an abundance of ancestral family homes. 
  • Lily and Remus mention that they are renting a flat together. 
  • “Great! We’ll live with you!”  (This is Sirius. James is still a little scared of accidentally scaring Lily away with his over-eagerness.) 
  • Lily says it would make rent cheaper (and she’s head over heels for James and now she doesn’t have to ask him to move in so it’s all great.) 
  • “There are only two bedrooms.” - Remus and his A* maths skills have realized this isn’t going to work as smoothly as they all think. 
  • “Lily and James, you and me, Moony. Perfecto.” 
  • Sirius realizes what he has implied and blushes a lot. Remus blushes a lot. James has a realization. Lily is rolling her eyes. 
  • “Erm. Or you know, I could take the couch.” 
  • “Don’t be stupid, Pads. We’ve shared a room for years. Besides, we don’t want you always hogging the sofa and claiming it as your own.” 
  • Remus adds this a little hastily because yes he absolutely does want to share a room with Sirius he just doesn’t want to admit it. 
  • Sirius nods, still a little embarrassed, maybe thinking about seeing Remus shirtless and sharing a room with no James and no Peter. 
  • Where is Peter you ask? I don’t know. On holiday in Australia. I don’t freaking care. 
  • “You and Lily have to keep the sex to a minimum OK my innocence can’t deal with it.” - Sirius, again, mainly because he doesn’t think he’ll be able to have sex ever again whilst sharing a room with Moony unless it’s with Moony and that would be crazy wouldn’t it yes. 
  • Lily elbows Sirius rather hard. 
  • Anyway they agree on this and they move in 
  • but
  • the flat is tiny
  • like super tiny
  • there are technically two bedrooms
  • but
  • each will only fit a double, not two singles
  • unless they go with bunk beds
  • no one wants bunkbeds have you ever slept in a bunk bed
  • it’s hell
  • the other person twitches their big toe and it’s like you are on a rolling ship in the ocean
  • idk maybe I had shitty bunk beds
  • anyway back on topic
  • Sirius and Remus don’t really talk about it, they just get on with it
  • and if they wake up snuggling well no one needs to know
  • and they both kind of like it so
  • they don’t kiss or anything they just snuggle in bed
  • Lily and James catch them one morning, snuggled up, arguing, and ask if they are dating
  • and they are like ??? no! of course not! this is platonic morning snuggling what are you talking about 
  • then Lily and James leave
  • and Sirius is like 
  • Moony are we accidentally married
  • Moony says maybe they are 
  • They kiss a little 
  • they kiss some more
  • Sirius bounces out of the room to tell Lily and James that yes they are dating they are boyfriends now 
  • Que eye rolls from the flatmates who are semi competent at romance
  • Anyway Lily and James share their tiny room 
  • and they love it
  • but they fight. So much? 
  • Not about anything Sirius like they just like a good fight 
  • “James Potter are those your socks underneath my pillow again.” 
  • Lily Evans will you refrain from storing your wand in my boots!”
  • They are both messy af though so that isn’t an issue
  • Remus and Sirius though -Remus is so messy? You wouldn’t think it because he has his shit together and he meets deadlines and all but… he does not do tidy. Sirius is a complete neat freak though so he’s always pairing up Remus socks and doing his laundry and making the bed the second Remus is out of it and it drives Remus mad. 
  • “Sirius where the fuck are my shoes? And that book about muggle electronics?” 
  • “On the shoe rack and on your bookcase.” 
  • “What the hell are they doing there?! how am I supposed to find anything if you keep moving it into ridicoulous places???” 
  • “??? it’s literally in the right place Moony you are being ridiculous.” 
  • Anyway Sirius does most of the cleaning around the flat, Lily and James do the cooking (Sirius and Remus can. not. cook. Everything is burnt or raw. If left to their own devices they would eat toast, biscuits, crisps and apples. Sometimes peanut butter by the spoonful.) 
  • Remus does the grocery shopping because he can budget and he is excellent at writing lists. He loves his lists. 
  • Sirius is horrified the first time he does Lily’s laundry. 
  • “That is a thong, Sirius. Please put it down.” 
  • He is actually quite concerned. 
  • The main flat arguments they have are over:
  •  1, Lily and James make up sex (at least three times a week after a meaningless fight. Sirius and Remus are convinced they fight just to fuel their sex life.)
  • 2. Remus leaving his socks everywhere? Like everywhere? He comes home and leaves them in the sink, on the sofa, balled up in the corner, in the bed - anywhere. 
  • 3. People using Sirius’ shampoo. 
  • 4. Taking the bins out, which they all hate. Other than that they are pretty clean. 
  • 5. James’ repeated attempts to adopt stray animals. 
  • “James dear, that is fox. It is wild. It does not need rescuing. Please put it back outside.” 
  • “BUT… IT’S SO CUTE.”
  • 6. James getting up at 5.46 everyday so he can be out running before the other runners, and smirk at them whilst they warm up. 
  • 7. Sirius overly load rock music and Lily’s overly load pop music and especially Lily and Sirius’ frequent sing/dance offs. 
  • Idk I just really like thinking about the marauders and Lily squished into a tiny flat in London for the first year out of Hogwarts and yeah things are starting to get scary but it’s OK for now and they are happy and in love and everything is good. 
we need to talk

when will antis notice that Yuri Plisetsky is not their 15 year old son who must be protected from any form of relationships but a character of an anime which actually means he doesn’t exist in real life? and why can’t they accept the fact that Otayuri isn’t about sexualizing Yuri but giving him a relationship? and what’s this fight between antis and shippers for? none of us is writing s2’s plot, we can’t be sure if they get together or not, and i don’t think that either the antis’ hate or the shippers’ fanworks could change kubo’s and the team’s plans for the story.
so please tell me, dear antis, what’s so bad about having fantasies of Yuri and Otabek that you wish we’d choke? making fanarts or writing fanfictions about nonexistent characters isn’t worng. hating others for doing it is. let’s forget it all and wait for season 2 together.

I love the smol Tony thing. I can imagine him squawking indignantly saying he is NOT small, it's not his fault that the people on his team are ridicoulously tall.

Tony: *loves his teammates*

Someone: *mentions that he’s the shortest guy on the team*

Tony: *is filled with irrational loathing for his teammates*

Everyone Else: D:
