Moonlight cliche and twist

OK, raise your hands if tonights episode started to sound like Charlain Harris' Sookie Stackhouse series. First book was it, or second?

::waves hand:::

Moonlight put its own spin when it was Lola {{...and how many of you started singing the Kink's, LOLA, when they said that name ...}} who was doing the dirty deed to other vamps. The interesting twist was the silver.

Remember the old movie, COMA? Or how about the scene from the original series, Battlestar Galactica?

Seems we, of the shivery stomachs, don't like thoughts of naked people being "harvested"by being laid out in vats or restraints while their bodily innards are sucked out or utilized for something other than their own survival. Anyone catch that cliche? Does it still work as a vehicle for horror? If so, then I guess it worked here.

However, when Beth wakes up 'the day after', it was incredibly like a scene out of a romance book. I could hear Mick's thoughts ...

"Beth looks damn good wearing my shirt."

Classic, absolutely classic scene.

Dare I add,

"She belongs in my shirt, she belongs with me."

That gives me a nice shiver. *grin*

Remember, he's easy on the eye.But why do women get to wear the man's shirt but guys can't wear the woman's?
Oh yea ... the shoulders don't fit.

Well, who says they have to button them?

Darn, that's right, it's a T-shirt - too tight.

Hey, wait a minute, what's wrong with that?

I loved this episode of Moonlight - especially Mick and Beth in the shower. I'm really liking this show!

Michele said...

You're right, Bailey. There were quite a bit of excellent character driven scenes. The shower scene was one beautiful that he used it to get her through the effects instead of taking advantage of her.
It was quite sensual, tender and visually pleasing.

Good call on that, Bailey!
Glad we have a show in common...finally!

Okay... eww on the picture.

Don't watch Moonlight, and NO, I didn't get the Kinks song, Lola. I got, "Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl..." Ha. Bet that's stuck in your head the rest of the day.

Serves you right for showing me that picture. Ew.

Okay, have to admit, Marianne is right. Your dude is ultra-furry. Ugh!
And I was thinking of the same song that Marianne said too!
Marianne, GET OUTA MY HEAD! *G*

I missed Moonlight. Dangit. Thanks for sharing bits of it though.
