''Where Death Rejoyces To Teach The Living''

SO. First of all sorry for being a lazy blogger... I didn't post last week :S Seriously I hate myself when I break schedule but sometimes I just do not have time.. It's an old line but sadly true..
What I wanted to write about was the TV series Body of Proof with Dana Delany. I had watched about two episodes at a friends house a year ago or something, and now that I have a vacuum in my shows schedule I thought I'd pick it up again. I don't particularly like crime series or films but I remembered really liking the show so I gave it a try.. I find that it is actually something I enjoy watching and this might be due to the fact that it's got more of the medical side of the whole thing and that there is a lot of comedy in the series.
It is about surgeon turned medical examiner Megan Hunt, who is divorced and has to deal with getting to know her teenage daughter again. She is a person who does what she wants and has very little friends. No friends she thinks, but it quickly shows itself that, actually, her work colleagues value her a lot and become her friends.
I finished watching the entire thirty episodes (two seasons) in I think 4 days... Yeah.. That's how obsessed I was once I started watching it. But it has the perfect balance between mystery and laugh out loud moments and you really get to love the characters. Most of course Peter Dunlop, Megan's Investigator who kind of is the only one who really knows her. They flirt a lot and he's a really good guy, I think from the first episode I was already shipping them together! It would have been too perfect, too happily-ever-after-ly though.. Peter dies in the season two finale and you really get to see that they should be together, he saves her from a crazy serial killer who wants to kill her and then pull our her brain through her nose with an embalming hook the way the Egyptians used to... Well yeah he saves her and gets the hook wedged in his stomach and dies in her arms. And she cradles him and you can see the pain in her face.
Ethan, Curtis, Kate, Megan, Sam, Bud, Peter
He as well as the two detectives are not coming back for season three which is premiering on the 19th of February.... I CAN'T waiiiittttt!!!!! But I'm gonna miss Peter and Bud SOOO much.. Sam I can deal with I was oddly fascinated by her because she's kind of manly and kind of beautiful at the same time, but I'm not gonna miss her... But PETERRRR!! :'( I mean Megan is technically still dating that other guy, and he seems quite sweet, but they're not soul mates!!!
I really like the character of Megan, because she is a bit of a cold hearted b*tch, but also the opposite at the same time. She is just really likable, and I think Dana Delany is a big part of what she is such an enigmatic character. Dana is over 50 years old, has had no plastic surgery and looks absolutely amazing. She is a bit of an idol right now because she is totally cool. I thought she was thirty to forty when I started watching... But then again, I'm a HORRIBLE judge of age... :D But yeah over time I noticed that she does show some signs of ageing (like a soft chin) but you don't notice it until you really look because you know. That is graceful ageing my friends. Sorry I'm ranting, I have a bit of a girlcrush on her if you haven't noticed yet.
The title of this weeks post is from a Latin sign they have posted over the entrance to their morgue. It is a big reason why I watch the show because it is exactly what they do in that morgue, they are really respectful towards the dead and try to do them justice. And the series has the same respectful kind of theme.
After finishing this I kind of was bored again, and then I started watching Bones. I thought it was a worse version of exactly the same thing and stopped after episode three. I've got nothing more to say about it. Then I started watching The Mentalist and I was finally happy again.
It's another crime scene murder investigation show. It centres around Patrick Jane who is a ''mentalist''. He is a behaviour specialist who was a con-psychic for many years but turned into a consultant for the California Bureau of Investigation. His wife and daughter were murdered by a serial killer called Red John and Jane is out for revenge.
That Cheeky Smile
It's not as good as Body of Proof in my humble opinion but its still pretty good. I love the constant conflict between Lisbon and Jane and I don't even need them to end up together. Differently so with Rigsby and Van Pelt!! OMG, those twooo!!!!! I'm shippiiinggg!! Hahah, and I'm slightly in love with Rigsby. Which surprised me because I thought I was going to like Jane, as he's the protagonist and has that cheeky smile thing going on. But yeah I like him, not love him. Rigsby is just such a darling.
And I also love Cho :D not in that way though. I just think he is also very funny. In the casino murder episode I was amazed what a player he can be and I love the banter between him and Rigsby.
Naww, Van Pelt and Rigsby !
I'm always more nervous when I watch this because in this series there is often a moment where someone almost gets pushed of a roof or shot or something.. Yeah, I just finished on season one with this and am excited to see what is about to happen with Rigsby and Van Pelt as well as Jane and Red John.
So a lot of dead bodies and stuff at the moment.. don't worry I'm fine! :D
