Ep 7.

- This whole Tommy chasing Laurel thing? So dry. So done. So boring.
- Stephen thingo has weird man-titties. I don't like 'em.
- AHahaha, Tommy got cut off! Look at all the fucks I give for this douchebag! NONE!
- I get tired of actors talking through their teeth.
- He snogs Helena. I feel nothing.

Ep 8

- I like Huntress, but I wish they didn't write her so wishy-washy.
- I forget what I thought of it. I'm up to ep 9.

Ep 9

- I am so, so over Oliver looking down his nose, talking through is teeth and reminiscing about how terrible the island was. Like, I get it's his big motivation and all but Jesus, they make it such a drag.
- Oh, Barrowman! <3
- Like, I know his Step-Dad is probably going to buy the farm? But I really don't want him to because in that family, he's the most likeable one.

Ep 10

- No, really, that is some DAMNED FINE musculature right there. 10/10, would perve again!
- This is a really dumb episode. Like, the whole Fireman storyline? Makes no fucking sense.
- Aww, Jo's leaving. Damn it.

Ep 11

- I love IT Geek girl. Having brain fart on her name.
- That was probably one of the most disastrous "Dinner with the Boyf's parents" I have ever seen. Oh, Laurel, you poor sucker.
- Still don't care about Tommy. No matter what, whenever Laurel is with him I'm like, "Why are you with this drip?"
- I am SO glad of the twist with the Asian guy that "saves" him on the Island. I was REALLY worried he'd be some mystical mentor character.

Ep 12

- With the hair and the mo, Asian Dude on the Island looks like Dave Grohl.
- This guy, "The Count"? Wow. That is some really BAD acting, and even worse screenwriting! Eeesh!
- This series is one big ad for Windows. I don't care who is using that shit, I am never getting a Surface, Bill.
- I swear, Thea is SO thick sometimes. Who goes to jail to spite a neglectful parent?!
- "Do you know why they call him 'The Count'?" BECAUSE HE LOVES TO COUNT! BWAHAHAHAHA!!!! *lightning strike* I realise they're building a back story for Count Vertigo but that shit is ridiculous.
- Oliver is drugged! Oh the Deus Ex Herbia to the rescue!
- Clearly Oliver and Diggles are at the cuffing stage of the relationship.
- I am getting really sick of these "walking into conversations at just the dramatically right moment" moments. HACKY. SLOPPY. SOAPY!
- Why is he getting Felicity from IT to do spectroanalysis? IT MAKES NO FUCKING SENSE. IT is for cleaning harddrives of viruses and making sure Sally from Analytics can access her email! NOT LAB WORK. FUCK ME FLAT.
- I swear, Felicity is the best character on the show other than Diggles.

I think you should watch Orphan Black.

I think you'd love it.

Female clones. It banks on the whole nature vs nurture thing. Each clone is a (more or less) fully realized person with her own agency (Buzzwords!) and they're all very distinct. Some female characters are from the wrong side of the tracks, some in positions of power, but as the series goes on, there are absolutely no 'weak' characters. Moments of weakness, sure, but no one's weak.

My three personal hiccups for the show are Cosima (lesbian clone, this is not a spoiler, it's pretty blatant and in a lot of promo images) because she's a little too Manic Pixie Dream Girl for my tastes. I LIKE Cosima but she hits too many quirky buttons to me.

A child character who seems to have some wisdom beyond her years and thus is...not precocious but...not a true child, yaknow? TV child.

And...a male character so dull I can't even remember his name? Paul? Paul, I think.

Also, Tatiana Maslani does AN AMAZING JOB! She plays all the clones and like I said, they're all distinct and fully realized. Some time during last season two of the clones were together and out of nowhere I was galvanized with OH SHIT! RIGHT! Same actress! DAAAMN, You're good!
