lesbiassparrow: (THEY MOVE LIKE COUGARS)

Holy god, that was genuinely, painfully bad. And not in an entertaining way. The Irish accents!* The Gaelic! The complete lack of acting ability by anyone attached to the episode. Crazy, emo Macleod with horrific hair having it off with the 'Irish' terrorist was just horrible icing on the Do Not Want Cake. And why does Duncan always want to save people who've slaughtered their way through vast swathes of people?

I am still having problems with working out where the Immortals put their swords most of the time. They always try and convince me that they've had them strapped to their backs even though clearly this IS NOT TRUE. Or under the smallest jackets in the world. Look, that fecking sword is several feet long; ain't no way you were hiding that.

*I cannot work out why they always hire people with such terrible accents. There's plenty of Irish actors to go around! You could probably get one cheap!

Maybe the swords are collapsible?

This is the only theory that makes sense. Which probably means that it's wrong.

Sadly, this is a common theme.

There was a joke among producers and writers and fans that immortality also conferred upon one a mystical "katana space" that was like this invisible hole for all swords no matter how improbably you dressed...

I like it when they try and pretend that they've been hiding them somewhere behind their backs when it clearly it not humanly possible.

Adrian Paul was once asked in an interview where he kept his sword and he actually said "Up my jacksy."

That would explain a lot about some of his more pained expressions.

I just had to google that; I thought it would be something a lot naughtier... :)

"...was just horrible icing on the Do Not Want Cake."

I shall quote you thusly most quotingly for I am inspired to make quotations of this at the most appropriate... and some inappropriate... moments.

It was so awful. Mere words cannot describe it.

Worse than David B's Irish accent? 'Cause Angel always sounded a bit off to me.

I never thought I'd say it...but yes. They even had her say a few words of Gaelic in the most dreadful accent too, just for good measure. (But perhaps not as bad as the Irish accents on Heroes, though. I think they're the worst I've ever heard, because clearly they rounded up several actors who couldn't do the accent!)
