Here it is, the final installment of Project Still Life Recap. Many thanks to all who have read along. To those who commented, thank you for letting me know this isn't just floating around in cyberspace somewhere. To those who lurked, I hope you enjoyed it.

Caught, Acts I, II, & III

Caught, Acts IV & V )

I'd intended to get this posted before Thanksgiving, but that was not to be. Here, then, is the first half of the last transcript for Still Life.

Caught, Acts I, II, & III )
feliciakw: (Jensen 2005)
It's been a while in coming, I know, but hopefully it's worth it.

Gravity, Acts I, II, & III )
feliciakw: (Jensen 2005)
No preamble. You know why you're here.

Evidence, Acts I, II, & III )
feliciakw: (Jensen 2005)
As promised, Acts I and II of the Still Life's second episode, "Dead Serious." It's sort of a combination of a couple different styles. The shorter conversations and scenes that I just summarize are more prose-y, while the scenes that I dictated in length are in a more transcript-like format. Please let me know if I need to clarify something, or if you have any questions.

For the previouslies, check here and here. For a portrait of the Morgan family, check here. Note that this third site is dead, for obvious reasons.

Dead Serious, Acts I & II )
feliciakw: (Jensen 2005)
Yes, my blurbs seem to have grown into full-grown recaps. Each scene gets at least a sentence. I warned you, didn't I?

We've got lots of ground to cover with this last installment, so grab a cup or glass of your favorite beverage, sit down, and hold on.

Caught )

And that, my friends, is the last of Still Life. I'm going to take a breather for a few days and attend to some pressing RL things. Then I'll get back to it and fill out some of the stuff (mostly the Jensen stuff) I missed the first time around.
feliciakw: (Jensen 2005)
Oh. Oh, wow. That's . . . a lot of ground to cover in one episode. And once again, Jensen brings home the goods in a big way.

Lots of progress made on Jake's murder case, though we never do find out what the secret is. They don't leave it at any big, huge, gaping cliffhangers; it's actually a really good spot to stop. If it were a movie or a book, you might say they left it open for a sequel. Well, yeah, considering that we never find out what Jake's secret is. But all the other plot lines are left in places that could go further, but are fine where they are. (If this were released to the public, there'd totally be room for fic.)

I've got pages and pages of notes to sort through, and depending on how the evening goes, I might even get it done tonight. Or tomorrow.

After which, gang, I'd like to know . . . are you still interested in transcript-y type recaps, or have ya lost interest?

Inquiring minds want to know . . .
feliciakw: (Jensen 2005)
Not much preamble to this one. I'll skip the dramatis personae this time since we've met all the major players. For an ep that didn't have a whole lot going on, I've got a lot of notes here. And I intend to flesh out Jensen's scenes more later because a couple of them were true gems.

Not Fade Away )

Next ep is our last one.
feliciakw: (Jensen promo)
Well, today's ep was the first one that didn't really do much for me. Jensen looked great and really delivered as usual. There was some fun stuff between the siblings. But for the most part? Kinda disappointing. The previouslies led me to believe that there would be more progress on Jake's case than there was. Em and Stack's storyline didn't really go anywhere. Daisy is kinda starting to annoy me. All in all, this was a lot of stuff that reminded me why I'm not into the family drama genre very much.

But as I said, Jensen looked good and played well, so that was worth it.

Will be back with the longer recap tomorrow, maybe.
feliciakw: (Jensen 2005)
Wow. Okay. I didn't get to do this ep the justice I wanted to because I was working against the clock due to an appointment. So the Em/Stack stuff got shortchanged at the end. But I'm guessing that's not why you're here, right? So let's get to it.

Dramatis Personae
Ben/Dad
Charlotte/Mom
Max
Emily
Daisy
Stack
Jonathan
Willa - Daisy's friend with whom she got in trouble pulling the fire alarm
Maggie
Whit Garnier (Gar-nee-YAY) - Maggie's boss
VOJ - Voice of Jake - narrator of story and possible manipulator of events

Gravity )
feliciakw: (Jensen promo)
Okay, so ya know how last week's ep was Jensen-light? Well, today's ep (Gravity) totally makes up for that. I thought my hand was gonna fall off. (Yes, I take my initial notes longhand on a steno pad. How weird is that?)

Also, all those smiles he hasn't been smiling? He was totally saving them up for this ep.

This one's a keeper, in all the right ways. I might have to re-watch it without the steno pad in front of me, because, ladies, this young man demands your attention.

Also? We get to meet Flirty!Max. Which is totally different from Flirty!Dean.

And? He's adorable when he's being smugly bashful. Or bashfully smug. (Truly, he and Em probably have the best on-going character chemistry on the show.)

Seriously.

But don't worry, angst!fans. There's Max!angst aplenty here.

I have an appointment this afternoon, but I'll try to get the blurb-y recap up later today. This one is gonna take a ton of transcription later.
feliciakw: (Jensen promo)
Welcome back, gang, and welcome to our next installment of Still Life. As mentioned previously, this one is somewhat Jensen-light, but what is there is worth the effort.

At this point, I'll briefly recap the dramatis personae for this ep:

Ben Morgan = Dad, cop
Charlotte = Mom, running for mayor
Jake = eldest brother, deceased, killed on first day of job as cop, acts as narrator for the show
Max = only remaining son of the family, photographer, looking for work, formerly dated Maggie Jones
Emily = eldest sister, great cook, just quit job as a (legitimate) hostess at a high-end strip club called Marlo's
Daisy = youngest Morgan child, still in high school
Maggie = Jake's fiancée, Max's ex-girlfriend, owns art gallery
Gideon = former college acquaintance of Emily, and Emily's current flame
Stack = chef at Marlo's, friend of Emily
Jonathan = Charlotte's campaign advisor (played by an actor who was on Firefly . . . the ep where someone has his body shipped to Mal and Zoe. The soldier who remembered the "If you can't run, then you crawl, and if you can't crawl, you find someone to carry you." Oh! "The Message"? Was that the ep title? Anyway . . . yeah, him.)

So let's get right to it, shall we?

Disappearances )
feliciakw: (Snoopy)
Good afternoon, sports fans! Well, it's Thursday, so that must mean that I went to the LoC after work. Today's viewing was a bit of a challenge, as everyone was around and wanted to hang out right by my viewing station to chat.

And when they weren't chatting at my viewing station, they were being very boisterous a few cubicles over.

On the plus side, though, Geo has a co-worker who is a fellow admirer of Mr. Ackles. At first, I wasn't sure if she was a Dean fan or a Jensen fan, but it appears that while undeniably being a Dean fan, she most assuredly appreciates the finer points of a younger Jensen. So she joined me for a few minutes of viewing.

Sadly, today's ep was not all that Jensen-heavy. On the upside of this, it means that this ep will be fairly easy to transcribe (famous last words) when the time comes.

But between the Jensen-light and the audible distractions in the office, my brain was not able to concentrate as per usual.

So please forgive me that it might take an extra day to make sense of my discombobulated notes. Because what was there? Was gooooooood.

In other news, how much do I love Jensen? So very, very much. He continues to give Max an uncertainty of his place while simultaneously conveying the need to protect his sister(s). (He's got more scenes with Emily in this one, and I do so love them together.) He mixes vulnerability (with Maggie) with strength (when protecting Emily), and as open and extroverted as he plays Dean (and Alec), he's quite the opposite with Max. Max is a quiet man, a man of few words, and everything he says and does has purpose. I love Jensen's portrayal of Max.
feliciakw: (Jensen promo)
I've got a real quick question for y'all. Do Jensen Ackles fans have a term by which they refer to themselves? Because I would find the term Ackle-ite to be hilarious in its cheesiness. "Acolyte." Get it? What? Don't look at me like that. Is it an old joke? Oh, never mind.

You know how I said that I prefer my "family drama" shows to have something to go with them? Like a mystery. Mysteries are good. Well, guess what. I got one! And it's Jensen's storyline! Woo and hoo!

And this is yet another example of how FOX habitually drops the ball with shows that have promise to be something more than your average show. I admit that the actors and the chemistry between them has a great deal to do with why I'm so engaged in the show (because Jensen is such a joy to watch), and if this show were cast with different actors, I'm not sure how I'd feel about it. And I totally wouldn't trade Jensen as Dean for Jensen as Max, well, ever . . . but dang I wish this could be released to DVD. There's some good stuff here.

So grab your favorite beverage and have a seat. I'll try to keep things as simple as possible this time around.
