But then suddenly something’s different. You feel the wind on the tips of your fingers, and the rain. Because before that you’re not really sure where you are but… but now you know. And you’re pushing through and then all this stuff at once. The moon and this incredible storm blowing. And the clock chiming midnight and you’re just standing there. N o b o d y else around.
#somewhere in the ether there’s words for how good this show is#how brave and wise and horrifying and beautiful and important#this incredible complex fable about difference and minorities and illness and intolerance and survival#it’ll break your fucking heart#and it’ll keep doing it#because the characters are so intimately & tenderly drawn#every single one#[especially the female characters]#and the whole thing just says#look#look at how terrible and fearful and petty and cruel and stupid humans are#and look at how brilliant and courageous and tragic and loving#god i don’t even know how to praise it high enough it’s fucking astonishing#i just mainlined the most recent eps off iplayer & i’m a goddamn wreck#i’m just#god#it’s so good#every second of it aches and it’s so bloody good(x)
this was going to be an experiment in lighting but that failed…
Acknowledged, Captain. Warp factor 1.
#and here’s a prime example of how the lines are innocuous but the acting is not #the way Jim looks at him you can SEE the transition of his thoughts#’oh wait I’m not lonely’ #’I have Spock’ #’I feel better now’ #and friggin’ Spock#LOOK at him #at first he’s concerned and a bit taken aback #and then he’s pleased/relieved to see his presence alleviated Jim’s anxiety #one. little. glance.#this was a conscious choice on many peoples’ parts to play it this way #and you’d never know it just reading the dialogue #that these two men just reassured each other with affectionate eye contact #FUCK #(filed under: Shatner does subtle too you morons)
For real though. The acting choices here (and elsewhere)…oh man. We really have Shatner and Nimoy to thank for so much.

If they show sports events at bars why don’t they show tv shows?
someone should get to making a fandom bar.
no but can you imagine? fandom themed drinks, tv show maraton nights, discount to cosplayers, and special season finale events.WHY ISNT THIS A THING??!!
