Watching Season 2 of Misfits and have just realised Dexter Fletcher is Nathan's dad. Now all those similarites between Nathan and Spike make a whole load of sense.

DAY 21: Favorite ship

Following on from yesterday, in one of the hardest decisions so far, Spike and Lynda from Press Gang would have to be my favourite ship. While these two may seem like just another David and Maddie Moonlighting clone I actually prefer their relationship to the one it was based on. Maybe it's the fact that they are teenagers (and didn't have to deal with complex issues such as pregnancy and marriage) but something about these two made their relationship seem rawer and almost more pure than most. I love that nothing was ever easy for them and I love how epic their relationship turned out to be over a tiny forty-odd half hour episodes. The scene (actually the whole episode) where Spike first tells Lynda that he loves her just kills me every time I watch it (as does every subsequent admission  - each one more heartbreaking than the last). Spike's absolute devotion to Lynda, no matter how many times she hurts him or knocks him down, is just gorgeous on his end. Constantly being there for her and trying to bring out her humanity and help her be a better person is so utterly romantic it makes my heart melt. I"m not ashamed to admit that Spike Thomson was always going to be my future husband. I also adore the way the final episode played out, and in particular that final scene. The whole Spike not wanting to kiss Lynda because he's afraid that he'll wake up and then kissing her anyway. Just perfect. ♥

DAY 20: Favorite kiss

I never thought I'd find this clip online with me and my obscure fandom love. My favourite kiss of all is Spike and Lynda's first real kiss from Press Gang. There's just so much I love about this one. I just love the tension and the build-up, and what a big moment this was for both characters - Lynda finally admitting that she's interested in him and Spike finally winning the girl of his dreams, as the title of the episode ('At Last A Dragon') suggests. I really adore Spike's 'that's just the world moving' line and I love how a moment like this is even possible on a children's television program (even if they did get into trouble over the 'use of tongue'). Much love all around. :D

While watching all five seasons of Press Gang late last year I began to notice more and more how much it shared in common with another of my favourite television shows Moonlighting - especially the relationship between the main two characters. This is what resulted.

Also feel free to try this out. Still plenty of OTPs left to guess.

Should I be worried if over the last 2 months I've managed to watch the entire series of Press Gang 4-5 times over?

As a complete package It's just so amazingly brilliant. At times I find it hard to believe that it was made over 15-20 years ago. Steven Moffat is most definately a God. Check this one out if you possibly can (and haven't already). :D

Also on the subject of Children's shows has anyone else ever watched that program Channel 9 has in the afternoon sometimes called The Shak? I also might be a little in love with that show as well. Both the concept and the stories they do are pretty lame but the main guy (named Curio because he loves science) is just so geeky it's hard not to love him. He has a Einstein action figure for cripes sake. :P

I think the moment it caught my attentio was an episode where they were talking about things that shake and decided to make some milkshakes. Curio thought this was a brilliant idea because he could then use them to explain the complexities of in-land oil drilling. I couldn't tell you how much that made me laugh (any one who's seen There Will Be Blood will know what I'm talking about) especially when later, milkshake in hand, his explaination consisted of quoting the "Now if you had a milkshake and I had a milkshake..." bit, thick Southern accent and all, to the bemused looks of the others. Maybe that's just me though. *g*

P.S. Buy this. You won't be sorry.

P.P.S. Any Doctor Who fans in Australia might want to check this out. If I had the spare cash I'd almost certainly be going myself.
