[In memory of my friend and coworker, 'Mikey' T.] Thanks, Houkito, for creating my first Capsule.
I think trust issues are what turn a lot of us to the internet and to forums like this. xp I have social anxieties so making friends is difficult, mostly because I get word vomit when I feel pressured to make conversation and it tends to make people nervous as a result. And then I over analyze things a lot.
I stay away from most chick flicks as well. There's the occasional sappy movie when I'm in a weird mood, but they usually aren't my first choices.
I think Monk sounds very interesting. Mostly in part because I know someone else who loves it and keeps telling me to watch it, so hearing it from two people kind of solidifies the idea that I should check it out. whee
It is Donnie Darko related! In the preteen days of myspace names, mine was Kayla Darko because Donnie Darko is one of my favorite movies. biggrin It's cool you caught on to that! A lot of people have never heard of those movies.
I can understand that we, as people who follow a show and can relate somewhat to fictional characters, may seem to others like we "act like" that particular character. But, in all honesty, I think we just like them because something about them reminds us of ourselves and allows us to feel like we can overcome hardships if these characters can overcome theirs. So, maybe you just act like Sam to her because you have some of the same personality traits that Sam has. He's sassy and wonderful, so I'd just take it as a compliment. xp Your sister sounds interesting. Haha. My little sister is kind of the same, in the sense she thinks a lot of the shows I watch are corny and boring but she'll sit in her room and watch Sex and the City. You want to talk about boring? There's a boring show. gonk
I like the premise of Monk as you describe it, and the comedy factor plays a part in piquing my interest as well because my life consists too much of work and school. I need a little lightheartedness in my life. But, I also appreciate a show with substance and Monk seems like it's not short in either category.
That's mostly true, I suppose. I have tried to get a lot of my friends in to Supernatural, but only one really likes it and watches it. Everyone else says it's boring or corny, which I obviously disagree with passionately. talk2hand My favorite part about the show is just what you said- they tie in all kinds of mythology and urban myths to make for an exciting and fresh show. On top of that, the character dynamics are interesting and complicated.
As for shows I like, I watch a lot of Supernatural (I have seen every episode), Game of Thrones, Once Upon a Time, The Dead Files, and American Horror Story. I watch a bunch of other shows, but I just don't have time right now to religiously follow them. I used to watch X Files growing up a lot and used to love it - it sparked my interest in the paranormal. I also have been told to watch Monk, and plan to do that when time allows. 3nodding
I love talking about my favorite characters from shows. My boyfriend and I tend to have long, in depth conversations around the mental states and back stories of characters we love and why they're acting the way they are. I find it fun to analyze them. I would guess you do, also? biggrin
