My Manifesto for [livejournal.com profile] fandomverse 


1. Bruce Willis

Bruce before Die Hard is funny, charming and very hot. David Addison will always be my favourite role of Bruce's.

2. David and Maddie

The relationship between these two was Moonlighting. Three years of witty banter and perfectly balanced UST made this show a must watch when it first aired. These two have always been my OTP and it will take a very special relationship to knock them off my top spot.

3. The Big Bang

I don't care how bad their relationship was handled after this moment I still hold that this is one of the most perfect hook-ups in the history of television.

4. The Special Episodes

Occasionally Moonlighting would take a break from routine and dedicate a whole episode to a different genre of storytelling. Its Noir episode and its Shakespearean episode were two of the very best.

5. General Silliness

Dream sequences, random song and dance numbers and a complete destruction of the fourth wall. Moonlighting was a prime time show that was never afraid to try something different, and I love it so much more for that.

This was a great show. I think it defines the word chemistry on the screen. I think most leading men/women strive for that in films and TV. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. It sure worked in this one.

I totally agree with you there. Chemistry like that can't be forced but Moonlighting definitely got it right. :)

Old school Bruce Willis is one of my biggest and strongest crushes. I'm always thrilled when I find people who share the Bruce love. :D

I THINK YOU DID. I HAD TO LIMIT MYSELF TO 5 REASONS OR I WOULD HAVE BEEN PICSPAMMING ALL MONTH. THIS POST IS ALREADY TWICE AS BIG AS I FIRST PLANNED. ONCE I STARTED I JUST COULDN'T STOP. SO MUCH LOVE. :D

I've always wanted to watch this show, but Netflix doesn't have it on Instant Watch and I haven't seen it anywhere else :(

That's a shame. It really is a wonderful show - I have all five seasons on DVD. There are a number of clips up on YouTube but I don't know if there are any full episodes.

Oh yes. &hearts I cannot tell you how badly I wanted to be like Maddie growing up.

Thanks. I'm not sure that I wanted to be Maddie but I definitely wanted to meet someone like David. :D

Wonderful manifesto. <3 I especially like the picspam of the noir episode - it's just such a gorgeously shot episode, isn't it?

Thanks. The noir spam was the first one I made. It was so hard to narrow it down to just those screenshots. It's easily my most watched episode of the show. It's just so very, very pretty. :)
