"Ever heard of a shower?"

OH MY GOD, GUYS, KATIE'S EPISODE. I sort of wanted to organize my thoughts into something vaguely coherent, but I haven't actually had time, so here is this late incoherent mishmash of thoughts that hit me.

First impressions: watching the previously bit just reminded me what an angstfest this season has been so far. (Also: still cannot get over how awesome Kat's acting has been.)

1. I can't understand how Katie chooses her boyfriends. Really, Katie? This is why she's obvs going to end up with Effy.
2. LOL WUT PREMATURE MENOPAUSE that was definitely not what I was imagining. Um.
3. Probably the sofa wasn't the most clever place to hide important notices. Also, yeah, there's this thing about being in denial--and when it comes to having your house repossessed, probably not the smartest route to take.
3. SHE'S KATIE FUCKING FITCH WHO THE FUCK ARE YOU. Never going to get over that. Ever. ♥ ♥
4. And why wouldn't Effy follow her outside be all wow love with Freddie really really sucks isn't perfect and you're Katie fucking Fitch, remember? And be all ~subtle with the chest-touching. I see what you did there.
5. "Ever heard of a shower?" The whole Katie and Naomi interaction was hilarious. And, I mean, okay, so I'm really pissed off at Naomi and everything, but this whole episode she just looks so sad and pathetic (and also really pretty, IDK) and she decided to stick around this time, so my heart started hurting for her a little bit. Even though I'm pissed.
6. The Emily kissing Naomi bit made my heart hurt, NGL. That was just--horrifying and sad and pathetic and humiliating and a million other sad things.
7. Also, sort of LOL about the fact that Katie and Naomi and Effy are all in the corner on lawnchairs. Like, I'm not sure what I think about that but I found it a little bit hilarious? In a sad sort of way.
8. Then there's Emily kissing some other girl and pushing Naomi in the pool and that part was so painful to watch I'm not even sure I can properly talk about it except to say that D: D: D: UGH and and. I know Naomi really screwed everything up but the way she's looking just tore me up and then Emily being sad and, whatever, god, I think I cried through half this episode.
9. KATIE HUGGING EMILY and being sweet and guh. I just really love them as sisters sometimes. ♥
10. FITCH PIZZAFEST. Awesome wrap-up. :D

...sighhh, can someone explain to me why we needed a Freddie episode this season?


On a sidenote, I re-watched Fly Away Home for the first time since I was like seven and it's too adorable for words. Anna Paquin is little and and the little geese and, I don't know, apparently I can still really enjoy things like this. ♥

Hey, I finally started watching Skins! ^^ First generation, though, and I'll hate to see them go. *pout*

...see, I sort of cheated and started first with series three while it was airing, so I didn't have the opportunity to be disappointed.

The two year thing is way too short, though, especially considering how few episodes there are per season.

I knoooow! This be long:
1. ~They're meant to be ~, obvs. ;)
2. Eh, yeah, I didn't see that one coming, either.
3. *lol* But followingly seeing Katie being the only one there to comfort their little brother made me sad.
3. Best line in this series so far. Period.
4. (you haz two threes?) The *chest touching*! Seriously! ♥
5. Katie/Naomi interaction is always great! If I didn't ship Katie with Effy... :)
6. I knooow.
7. I *loved* that part...
8. ... but the part afterwards made me go sadface.
9. Fitch twins love! How adorable weren't they in this scene?
10. :)

I... can't give you a proper answer for that. (Give Katie two eps instead? :D)

I do have two threes, apparently! Because I'm special and just trying to keep everything ~interesting?

I did not expect to ship Katie/Effy but somehow it just ~happened and I adore them with a passion.

Haha, I don't think I could ever ship Katie/Naomi just because I love Emily so much that it would destroy me. Thrilled to finally see some twins love, though. After having their throwdown last season, they deserve it.

I would definitely be down with two Katie eps! ...the only reason I'm vaguely excited about Freddie's episode at all was that promo with Katie holding Effy or whatever and, ugh, they just had to include that to make me a little bit excited.

It's been the worst type of angst fest, and it seems to be getting worse, did you hear what's happening in next weeks episode with effy?

1)This. What on earth was she doing with that moron?
2)That shocked me, I was like :o that's a thing? She's like 17 :(
3)Worst place ever, try maybe a locked box.
3)I am still saying that, It may be the most quotable skins line ever.
4)effy: I just need to let you know that things were Freddie, not that great, if something or someone bettter came along... *hint hint*
5)I love all of their interaction, always entertaining.
6) Oh the way that scene made me feel, it was just so upsetting, poor Naomi.
7) I loved that, I think they should just chill together on chairs when they hang out.
8)This part killed me, it was so hard to watch and I can't even describe the feeling that it gave me, it was just painful, I didn't expect Emily to react this way, I think the punishment has gone far enough now.
9) This was adorable.
10) Great wrap up - except the parents heavy make out, could of done without the close up lol.

Ukh, I don't even know, I figure he will just be the filler in an Effy centric episode, it's all about her really.

I have not heard! But I have no objections to spoilers, really, so--what's happening?

2. Right? I was like, wow, Skins, way to pick the most obscure/strangest thing in the world. Of course it did destroy her vision of a perfect marriage and at least broke her up with her boyfriend, so I guess yay on that front.
4. Haha, YESPLZ. I was actually surprised by how much they didn't make Freffy happy joy couple? In a pleased sort of way.
8. AGREED. And I-I didn't think I could ever feel that sympathetic for Naomi, but just watching her made it so much more painful. And she actually decided not to run away with this time, which I genuinely think is a real turning point in hear character. She just looked so broken.
10. Haha, yes, I mean, it went from ha, kids thinking their parents kissing is always gross, to okay, ew stop now plz.

That is at least a better alternative. :D I was just worried because all of the episodes seem to have such an extreme focus on the title character, but this is reassuring.

Apparently, she is going to completely lose her mind and end up sectioned in a psychiatric ward.

2)It's good that they shone a light on it though, because it is seemingly unknown, It's sad that she can't have the future she wants, but yeah I agree at least it broke that relationship up.
4)It's gonna happen, did you see the way they were clinging to each other in the Freddie promo - even if Effy does look terrified, it's because she saw Freddie and was like "Oh no, here comes the buzzkill." I am glad that things didn't become perfect all of a sudden.
8)Me either, I really didn't think that considering she was the person in the wrong, that I could feel so sorry for her, it was the look in her eyes that just tore my heart up. Her character has definitely grown, but if Emily continues, I'm not sure Naomi will be able to handle it, let's hope they prove me wrong.
10)First it was like aww, they're in love, and then the kiss went on for a while, I was like okay seriously? Stop now.

If the promo and spoilers are a correct indication, I think it's gonna be more Freddie+Effy, as opposed to just being him, I'd rather he didn't have an episode, but I can deal with it, if Effy is featured heavily.

...that sounds kind of insane. (Wow, puns, how ~hilarious.) A psych ward? Huh.

2. Mm, yes. It is sad, but I'm also really glad it forced Katie to sort of do a much-needed double take on her life.
4. That part of the promo was seriously the thing that made me excited about next week. And I would have been fine not looking forward to this one--like I don't have enough else to do--but then they went and showed me that and guh. Haha, definitely let's get as far away from him as possible.
8. Exactly. The eyes. It was so powerful and depressing.

Cheers for Freddie&Effy as opposed to just Effy, though! Maybe they realized he couldn't really manage to pull enough attention in his own episode? Because seriously.
Feb. 24th, 2010 03:36 am (UTC)
it does (I appreciate a good pun) yup a psych ward, I'm gonna say it's probably a drug induced psychosis type thing.

2)It is very good that she had to evaluate things, I hope it prevents her from getting into the wrong type of realtionships now, and appreciating her family more, and realising there is more to life than just drama.
8)It was the agony in the eyes, the desperation in her voice, and you could hear that like lump in her throat, she was trying not to cry.

I think the writers realised that an episode based on him alone wouldn't hold enough interest, last year his episode was one of, if not the least interesting episodes, the only thing that entertained me was his sister, this year I think the addition of Effy being heavily featured will make his episode worth a watch.
