A "Hello" and a Video.

Hello, you lovelies in RA fan land!
I hope this post finds you all in good spirits. :)
I have to give a big shout out to the awesome guest bloggers for helping to provide
insight and entertainment on this site while I have been busy adjusting to a third little one.
(There are several more guest posts to come, so keep on checking in!)

So while I've been out...
I did watch the Spooks Season 9 finale.
I won't go on and on about it, but will say I was disappointed.  For the record,
I did enjoy season 9 as a whole (probably better than season 8) and am still a fan of Spooks,
but that finale left me feeling rather empty.  I need more closure!!!  We are left with the impression that
Lucas jumped to his death, but without seeing a body,  I feel like anything is possible in the future. 
Plus, I am choosing to have a selective memory  and can only think of RA's character as LUCAS
and remember the good stuff about him. (Kind of like I did with Gizzy... must be
the "savior complex" Ramones mentioned in the last post.)

I also created a new video!
This is probably one of the only serious vids I'll ever make.
(Those of you who are familiar with my videos can probably imagine the restraint it took me not
to throw in silly stuff... although one part of the vid kind of cracks me up- put your hands up!)
Oh, and I'm not a huge Guy/Marian fan, but that's what this video features. I heard this song
on the radio, immediately thought of Gizzy's regret and had to create something.
Okay, I'll stop rambling so you can watch the darn thing.

*Be sure to pause the blog's background music (bottom of screen) before viewing*

so glad to have you back. Yes I know the empty feeling. I was like a hole was left in my heart and the series. I felt the same when Tom disappeared in season 2 ending of Spooks.

Heartbreak is always hard to write properly and not leave the audience feeling cheated. I have to agree if felt a bit cheated.

and welcome aboard the savior complex train we have a great club car. Woot woot!

Spooks may have kept the door open by NOT showing the body, but with capt. america and the hobbit it is vry unlikely we will see him on the small screen anytime in the near future. but one can always hope. right? :) when marian was killed and they buried her, i was still hoping they'd somehow bring her back for season 3. i liked your serious vid.

I don't think we have seen the last of Lucas.

I know what you mean, Nat...I liked Season 9 up to the last part..It seemed to hold your attention..but the part about Lucas not being Lucas..that was odd..

They could have had Vaughn after Lucas...The Chinese after Lucas...Without Lucas being a baddie..The tension would be Lucas is trying to keep those guys off his back, but he's not a traitor...Maya could still show up and Lucas worries that the baddies will do something to Maya if he doesn't cooperate...I don't think they needed to change the personality of Lucas...

I wonder if they didn't show Lucas jumping off the building because it's cheaper to do that...[Avoid the cost of staging it with stunt people]...

The first episode of season 10 will tell us the fate of Lucas..Though even if they have a funeral, that doesn't mean he can't come back...Ros faked her death once and had a funeral and came back...

I still love Lucas...:)

Nice video, nice song!

The Monday after episode 8 felt weird not seing Lucas, so yes there was an empty feeling and to me he will always stay Lucas, I don't know what happend with this John guy :) not explained well enough to be convincing.
Actually I liked season 8 better than 9 and I am not sure if I will be watching season 10. Lucas/RA was the only reason I sat through a lot of the episodes of season 9, bad writing but still great acting on RA's part.

Nat, perfect song for it. I hope you don't mind that I posted it to my wall on FB with a note about your blog and your 300,000 milestone mark.

Best wishes-

Ann Marie

Thanks for the vid Nat! you're right, the song goes great with these two.

As for S9 of spooks...big disappointment for me. I liked Beth and Dimitry and will probably watch S10 because I like those two, but the rest of the characters weren't consistent to me as I knew them so I wasn't impressed with the writing at all. As for Lucas, well, I think the writers suffered from Bobby Ewing syndrome :) Lucas will always be good, solid, Lucas from S7/8 for me! And if it that's due to the savior complex, I don't really care :)

I'll watch series 10 just to see how things shake out...I would have liked to see more between Beth & Lucas...She "believed" in him..[As she told him]...There was chemistry there..Oh well...The show moves on...

I've been away too long and owe you a congratulation on your precious baby girl.
I stumbled upon your vid via RAFrenzy's page, promptly subscribed (should have done that ages ago) lovely pics of Marian too! So I wasn't spoiled for your ONE funny moment!! LOL
S9 was a rollercoaster ride that derailed in slow-motion.
I believe we're meant to feel empty just like Lucas/John
