There's a place for people who laugh at nothing...

(no subject) @ 11:39 am


Here's a meme that I saw in someone's journal and thought to do.

Name your top six TV shows right now, before reading the questions:

2. CSI Miami
3. House
4. Two and a Half Men
5. Close to Home
6. Without a Trace

1. Who is your favorite character from #2?

Calleigh Duquesne (Emily Procter). First, she's good looking and unabashedly Southern. Second, she's the firearms and ballistics expert, meaning that she's often seen firing guns. In fact, you get the sense that she really likes guns. Third, she's all business, but has a way about her that makes people comfortable.

2. Who is your least favorite character from #4?

Rose (Melanie Lynskey), the psycho neighbor. Understand I like all of the characters in this show, but I had to pick one. She's actually quite funny, and I've missed her this past season, where she had less of a role.

3. What would a crossover between #1 and #5 include?

It would include an NCIS investigation that involved a sailor from Indianapolis, and it would turn out that it wasn't the sailor but someone close to him who was the perpetrator (or victim). Y'know...that would be a pretty good show, wouldn't it?

4. Who is your favorite ship from #6?

Martin Fitzgerald (Eric Close) and Samantha Spade (Poppy Montgomery). It's a much better match than Sam and Jack.

5. If you were to set one person from #3 and one person from #6 on a blind date, who would they be?

Dr. Cameron (Jennifer Morrison) and Danny Taylor (Enrique Murciano), followed closely by Dr. Wilson (Robert Sean Leonard) and Elena Delgado (Roselyn Sanchez) and Dr. Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein) and Jack Malone (Anthony LaPaglia).

6. If you could meet one person from #4 and spend the day with them, who would it be, and what would you do?

Charlie. We'd go out for a liquid lunch, then to a bar to pick up women. Of course, if I hung out with Alan, I could get an adjustment.

7. If you could change one thing about #2's plot line, what would you change?

Fire Horatio Caine (David Caruso) and put Frank Tripp (Rex Linn) in charge.

8. Explain a relationship between two people (not necessarily romantic)from show #5, and why you like the relationship between them.

I like the relationship between Annabeth (Jennifer Finnigan) and Maureen (Kimberly Elise). It's professional, but you can tell that there's warmth and mutual respect. Maureen has ended up as the more senior of the two, but she really cares about Annabeth and tries hard to alleviate the job stress for her, and Annabeth just can't let her.

9. If the lead title characters (first name in the credits) from #1 and #3 were both drowning, and you could only save one, who would it be?

Tough question. How does one choose between Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and Gregory House (Hugh Laurie)? Probably House, because House is crippled and I'd expect Gibbs to get out of it on his own.

10. If you could change the title characters' order in the credits for #4, what order would you choose?

I'd put Angus T. Jones (the kid who plays Jake) first.

11. If you were able to add a new character, any kind of character you wanted, to the storyline for #6, what would the character be like and what would their role be?

A real by-the-rule-book bureaucrat who spends most of his/her time bitching that Malone's team isn't doing their paperwork.

12. What happens in your favorite episode of show #2?

Calleigh's father thinks he's killed someone in a DUI incident, and Ryan Wolf (Jonathan Togo), just transferred from uniform to CSI, does the investigation and clears the father. At the end of it, Calleigh takes her father's car keys from him.

13. If you could kill off one of the characters of #1, who would it be and how would you do it?

I'd hate to see any of them go, although I wouldn't mind seeing director Jenny Shepard (Lauren Holly) get killed off.

14. If you got the chance to visit the set for either show #3 or show #5, which would you choose?


15. So, I saved the best question for last. If you could date anyone from any of these shows, which show and which person?

Calleigh Duquesne (Emily Procter) from "CSI: Miami", for the reasons stated above.

This is a pretty good exercise. I think it would be interesting to do it a couple of times, choosing different shows and sorting them in a different sequence. You could end up with some pretty interesting pairings. Maybe I'll try that.

Grey's Anatomy
How I Met Your Mother
2-1/2 Men

1. Christina
2. Janitor
3. How I Met Ken Jennings?
4. uhm... brohers? There's not too many "ships" on that show
5. House & Rose - lol! Just think of the inanity!
6. Eliot - we'd go giggle & be girlie together
7. It's damn near perfect to me
8. Ted & Robin - I love the ships passing in the night feeling and the constant sexual tension
9. House because then he could save Alex
10. I like it the way it is.
11. I'd make a girlfriend for Jake... and she'd be just like him!
12. That's either the bomb episode where they had to take a live bomb out of a patient or the S2 finale where everything goes beserk.
13. Uh... I guess it might be interesting if one of the contestants died onstage, but that's real death & that's not funny.
14. I would normally say House so I could meet Hugh Laurie, but I think I'd probably get along better with people my own age... plus, the chance to meet Doogie Houser? come on!
15. Wow. If I had to date one of them, I guess I'd have to pick J.D. from Scrubs. He's funny, cute & hell, he's a doctor & who doesn't want to date a doctor?

#4, you could say Rose and Charlie, or better, Rose and Alan.

#11, the thought of a girl who's just like Jake blows my mind...

#13, we could always kill of Alex Trebek.

Have you noticed Alex is starting to act a little... funny? Some of his comments lead me to wonder if he's getting a little senile...

And yeah, an episode with a girl like Jake would totally kick ass. Can you see the looks on Charlie & Alan's faces as they try to contend with the two kids?? OMG they have GOT to do that episode!! LOL!!

You're right. Alex does kind of go off into la-la land when he's giving the correct response.

You know, I bet I could write that episode...

2-1/2 Men

We should get together on that! I've never tried my hand at screenplay, but I've been dying to find a way to start. You could show me the formatting for it... and of course it wouldn't be fair if you yoinked my idea without letting me in on it. ;) If you're serious about this, you can get my email address off my profile and we can talk. I'm getting excited thinking about such a project!

Re: 2-1/2 Men

You know, that sounds like a great idea. I promise, I'd never rip you off. I'll be emailing you in the next day or two. I look forward to it!
