Alias – A Poem

A woman of a thousand names

But one that always remains the same

Giving truth to the one she loves

Sending him to the world above

Working for the enemy she thought to fight

Needing to make this wrong a right

Changing sides as a double

She’s not the only one in trouble

With her father on her side

Needing her double status to hide

Hiding the truth from her friends

A handler to help her with those ends

A mother that she thought lost

Returns at an unknown cost

Losing time in her life

Her lover takes another to wife

An enemy freed, her father in jail

She finds this life beyond the pale

A wife’s betrayal, a sister found

Forward her life continues to bound

A lover thought dead, a child to be born

A dangerous enemy takes her form

With her destiny finally unfurled

She finds she has all the time in the world

Charmed – A Poem

Destiny found in a shadowed book

Powers from which three sisters took

One sees visions in her mind

One freezes objects in space and time

One moves objects with her will

Powers for which evil will kill

A handy man with angelic wings

Protecting witches from evil things

A detective to protect and serve

A demon with human nerve

Detective lost in loop of time

A sister passing to the other side

A sister found that was unknown

A mother’s affair is truthfully shown

A future son come to the past

To change the future, and change it fast

To fix his brother’s evil deeds

And to sow his future seeds

A protégé to fight and teach

For a normal life they wish to reach

Sisters against sisters, driven to harm

So that they may be forever….

No Sh*t Sherlock: BBC’s Modern Take on Old Classic

My first introduction to the world’s Greatest Detective was through the PBS show “Wishbone”, then through the cartoon “Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century.”  In general, I have avoided any and all movies until I watched the new ones with Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law.  I then stumbled on this BBC show, and was hooked within the first ten minutes, and chomping at the bit for the next one.  The wait is long between series, but well worth it.

The world’s first consulting detective existence in the modern age is perfect, with a wealth of knowledge and data at his finger tips.  The show’s biting humor and tongue in cheek wit at the expense of Sherlock’s utter lack of social awareness is endearing and amusing to the office, as is the boys’ staunch establishment of their heterosexuality, and various jokes to suggest otherwise.  Watson’s chronicles via blog gains them notoriety, but lends an anchor that might have sliped through the grasp of the writers.

Logic may rule Sherlock, but satire reigns supreme, especially in regard to the modern day.

Long live Sherlock Holmes.  May you never be bored.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Poetic Narrative

Chosen as fate’s number one
Fighting in the valley of the sun
One watches with a baffled frown
As another slays all that’s bad in town
A loyal heart and a blooming mind
A silent wolf and a queen unkind
A brroding man and demon possesed
An enemy loved and kindred pest
Insanity stalking from the past
A love for eternity to always last
An angel’s wings thought ever gone
Drawn in by the siren’s song
A dark avenger on the prowl
The abandoned sitting back to howl
Rescued from where evil reigns
Driven almost to be insane
Humanity just a breath away
Hoping forever for a forgotten day
A woeful tale, Shanshu in the city
Watched from above with hope and pity
Born of the light, made of the dark
Evil is hoped to end in a spark

The Boys are Back in Town: SAMCRO Returns!

Tonight commences the beginning of Season Four for Sons of Anarchy, on FX at 10 for 90 minutes. I’m amped for the Men of Mayhem to come home. I’ve already done my refresher of the show, so where we left off is still fresh in my mind. Having been hooked on this show last year by my sister, I had to catch up in order to watch the third season. I hate seeing stuff out of order. It irritates me. The chronology is there for a reason. But I’m off my point. Wicked excited for what Kurt Sutter and the Sons have in store for us this upcoming season. Plus some of the guest stars, like Danny Trejo as a crime lord, and the Hoff as a porn star. Not much of a stretch, huh? I’m not the only one with a countdown, right?

You get to make a guest appearance on any TV show of your choice. What’ll it be?

My list has diminished over the years, and unless Joss Whedon comes out with a new show before I graduate college, which at this point is looking like never,  I have three choices.

1. Bones

I followed David Boreanaz from Buffy and Angel to this show, and though my crime dramas that I can stand are few and far between, I got absorbed in this show.  It’s nice to see him get to display his sense of humor, instead of be so dour all the time, even if that was the role.

Role:Witness or Intern

2.Castle

If you haven’t spotted my Whedon fan flag by now, you haven’t been paying attention.  I love my captain, Nathan Fillion, and stalked him from Firefly and Serenity, and was delighted to find him being his irreverent after a fashion. Plus having the bonus of Firefly Easter eggs thrown in every once in a while.

Role:Victim that turns out to be a killer or Rookie that gets killed during bad guy chase.

3.Eureka

No, not the castle.  Someone referred to this show as X-Files and Pushing Daisies had a child.  I’ve never seen PD, so I can’t say how accurate that is, but all the weird stuff going down definitely fits X-Files.  This one popped up on my radar through Netflix, and I’ve been hooked ever since.  Jack Carter being the common sense straight man to this mass of geniuses in a town where things go wrong so often is original.  Being the common man in the middle of a think tank could be ridiculous, because he can’t out think the genius, but his street smarts has a way of counterbalancing over-thinking problem resolution.  I’m pissed that they’re done after season 5.

Role:Tesla student on tour in GD during crisis.

I would have loved to be on Smallville if it was still going. There area few other shows on the same list, but it’s too long, and most of the shows are long gone.

WTFSutter: Inside SAMCRO

For those of you that haven’t found it yet, and are counting down to when Season 4 of Sons of Anarchy begins on Sept 6, Kurt Sutter, creator, writer, and executive producer of SOA has a Youtube channel, where he posts a weekly Q&A sent by the fans about the show, along with behind the scenes interviews with cast and crew.

I’ve become a diehard SOA fan, thanks to my sister, and will soon embark on refreshing myself by watching the first three seasons.  This is not a show to be missed, and I don’t pick my television lightly.  So join the rest of the Men and Women of Mayhem on September 6 at 10 PM on FX.
