Day 23 – Most annoying character:

Jenny Humphrey (Gossip Girl)



I actually used to like Jenny back in the beginning of the show--I loved her dynamic with Dan and her dad (especially the way she and Dan would gang up on their dad sometimes, teasing him), her friendship with Eric, and I liked her interest in fashion and was able to sympathize with her to a certain extent. I even remember hoping that the rumors of her getting her own spin-off show were untrue, because I thought GG (and the Humphreys) would lose something if Jenny were gone.

But then she got more and more irritating and horrible as a character, even after she supposedly "learned her lesson" at the end of season 1 about social climbing. It all really picked up when she decided to change her look from that of a nice pretty young woman to a hideous badly dressed raccoon (with that horrible eyeliner to rival Morgana's 2x11 eyeliner of doom, and that ugly bleached-blond and bangs hairdo), so that she was just an eyesore to look at, and when she also decided to be totally bitchy and abandon her family over ~fashion~ and whatnot. She just became more and more of a sneaky and ruthless bitch, backstabbing everyone around her from her family (sending blasts on her own brother?!) to her only friends (like pouring yogurt on Eric in front of everyone, WTF?!), trying to break Nate and Serena up....and then she whines that nobody likes her? Well DUH moron, of course they're not going to like you if you do horrible things to them! *rolleyes* I was just so done with her after the season 3 finale, I wish she'd just go away for good....

Also, I've now reached "The End of Time", lol....can't believe I only have two hours left of Tennant! O_o

Enjoy it, bb. *hands you a box of tissues* I still miss him and it's been a week since I've watched TEoT LOL

sherrilina: 9/Rose (Doctor Who)sherrilina on September 6th, 2010 02:25 am (UTC)
Aww...*hug* So you held off TeoT just because you didn't want to see the last of Tennant?

I'm on season 5 at last, and I am certainly am missing him right now....:(

I actually didn't end up crying, but I almost wanted to during the final scenes....that scene with Rose, OMG! O_o I had JUST rewatched "Rose" too, while waiting for TEoT to finish it's dl, in part to see how far she had come, knowing she'd be in this epp...little did I know! :p It was kind of perfect though... (Although the difference in Rose's appearance was more obvious that way, lol). Now I get your icon though, the one from that scene! (Luckily I thought that was her in the Christmas epp, I has forgotten what she was wearing...). I think that may be my favorite D/R scene since Doomsday though, gah!
Steph: Ten Rose TEOTvengefulspirit on September 6th, 2010 03:15 am (UTC)
Yep, that was the reason I held off TEoT LoL I just couldn't do it.

The other day I re-watched TEoT with David's commentary with it and I cried all over again, just as much, because HE got emotional during those last scenes LOL The part where the Ood says, "The universe will sing you to your sleep," with that score playing, completely breaks me. Gah. *sigh* I swear I'm over-sensitive LOL

I think that may be my favorite D/R scene since Doomsday though, gah!

Mine too. It was just *so* perfect. I love when shows do scenes like that, to bring everything full-circle.

And I noticed this the other day...

Ten and Rose's first night together.

And the last. They're SO similar, with the snow and everything. I love it. And look at Ten's face <3333

ANYWAY, I hope you like Season 5. It'll probably take awhile before you really warm up to Eleven, though.

Wow, I'm getting the Netflix disc Tuesday (I couldn't wait though, lol, so I watched it through other channels! :p), perhaps I'll rewatch with the commentary, at least the end....I read David's reasoning for leaving and he did seem really choked up about going, even though it was his decision...

And THOSE GIFS! <3333 (Lol, I love how he holds his hand out and wiggles his fingers!) I just spent way too long watching that second one...he smiles! His last smile...and it's because of Rose. :) Gah....but yeah, that's why when I saw your icon I thought it was from TCI, what with the snow/wintry setting and all...also, Ten always did love real snow!

And yep, it is taking a little longer than I'd have hoped....IDK, it's definitely taking me longer than it did the transition between 9 and 10, maybe in part because Rose was still there and such. Amy hasn't quite excited me yet, and her treatment of Rory...(I'm watching Vampires of Venice RN, the one with "Gilbert" from BH lol). I mean, with Rose and Mickey they a) weren't engaged, and b) when we first meet him he seems like a pretty horrible boyfriend (cowardly, skeevy--"anything to have you in my bedroom! But don't read my email!"--self-centered, etc), whereas Rory seems like the sweetest guy...

Also I have to agree about River Song, I was undecided in season 4, but I REALLY don't like her after seeing her first two epps here....>:( And what's with the blond hair?
Steph: Elevenvengefulspirit on September 6th, 2010 05:11 am (UTC)
I hated the way Amy treated Rory at first, but it gets better. I didn't like Amy at first either, but I actually really like her now. She and Rory are adorable, I love them so much now. Rory is so sweet, especially for some things he does later in the season.

River Song really annoys me, and I hate having her around. For some reason, I have a feeling from the way she talks about their history, that she's going to end up as his full-time companion eventually, and like I told someone else, if it comes to that, I'm not sure I could watch it LoL
sherrilina: 9/Rose (Doctor Who)sherrilina on September 6th, 2010 03:39 pm (UTC)
That's good to hear, re: Amy, and A/R. In part because I could use something new to ship on the show, that doesn't involve the Doctor....;)

And UGH, IDK what I'd do if she became a regular companion...I recall people saying that Kingston was too much of a big name actress to appear on the show regularly, and I pray that this holds true...:(

Also what is with the horribly frizzy blond hair now? As if her character weren't annoying enough, lol...
Jenniferhmsharmony on September 4th, 2010 03:12 am (UTC)
Hate, hate, HATE Jenny, too. Which is a shame, seeing as, like you, I was really fond of her back in S1.

Then she lost her charm -- both in personality and looks -- and I've been praying that she will die an unimportant death ever since.
sherrilina: Chuck/Blair (Gossip Girl)sherrilina on September 6th, 2010 02:36 am (UTC)
Lol, "losing her charm" is a good way to put it....and yeah, the only problem with her dying would be that we'd have to spend time dealing with the fallout of it on the show, and still keep talking about her....I'd rather she just go to Hudson forever and leave everyone to just forget her in peace! ;)

Jennifer: Gossip Girl - Nate/Blairhmsharmony on September 6th, 2010 02:51 am (UTC)
we'd have to spend time dealing with the fallout of it on the show, and still keep talking about her

Thus the unimportant death. =P Kind of like how in the seventh book Rowling was all, "Oh, bee-tee-dubs, Remus and Tonks are dead. HAHA. SUCKERS."

sherrilina: Harry/Hermione (HP)sherrilina on September 6th, 2010 03:11 am (UTC)
Lol, oh god, that was a classic in the field of WTF? off-screen deaths! :p I suppose if she died at the end where we wouldn't need to hear/see any fallout, that would be perfect! :p

Honestly though, when it came to HP at least, at that point I was like, "Whatever!" Remus was so weird and OOC in the book, and Tonks...*gag* Sorry, but I didn't like R/T any more than the other ships forced down our throats in HBP...
Jennifer: Harry Potter - His jaw droppedhmsharmony on September 6th, 2010 03:47 am (UTC)
Same! Which was a shame because I had wanted Tonks and Remus together before it was even canon! And then, of course, she went and butchered it. *sighs* I love Rowling and I will forever be in awe of the amazing world she created, BUT THE WOMAN CANNOT WRITE ROMANCES (when she's TRYING, that is).
sherrilina: Harry/Hermione (HP)sherrilina on September 6th, 2010 03:54 am (UTC)
Seriously, the whole "everything she touches with her sh*t stick" line is SO true...:(

No wonder "Hermione wandered" away from her original intention, she didn't want any part of her badly written plans! :p
