Good Lord.  
A mini - TV sidebar - (which I NEVER do, but this warrants it!)

"Kings" and Michael Arden... I can't wait for him to show up in future episodes. Just his declaration of love to Jack (and the fact that he was given a name - Joseph) should be enough to get him in another episode, right? Shouldn't we be allowed to find out more about him and his relationship to Jack?

I have a new reason to turn on the TV on Sunday nights now. Damn.

Oh, I am glad you liked it! I am becoming ridiculously obsessed with this show. :-)

I was very intrigued with Michael's character--and even have a fic idea involving him. I read in more thsn one place that his character is supposed to be recurring, and I hope that's true.

The declaration of love was so interesting, and the look on Joseph's face when he was kicked out... Heartbreaking. And maybe a little vengeful?

Again, glad you liked the show!

I love how much Sebastian pwned last night's episode. Jack may be a bit of a one-note character still, but Sebastian plays that one note to such perfection. my heart broke for him when he got into the fight. he pushes away what he really wants so he punishes himself physically... I love seeing all the people similarly obsessed with this show. maybe the cult following will keep it alive the way it's kept "Friday Night Lights" alive. this show can't end after the 13 episode run. it just can't.

Sebastian is playing Jack wonderfully. I feel like they're fleshing him out really slowly, but he's doing his level best with what they're giving him. Some of the looks... He breaks my heart in the best possible way.

You mentioned FNL. I adore FNL, too (yay for being renewed!), and Jack strikes me as being a lot like Tim Riggins. Especially last night when he provoked that fight right after he dismissed Joseph. It is no wonder I latched right onto Jack. I did the very same with Tim. Wounded, angsty boys...

I am hoping that the show will catch on and then continue beyond the episodes they've done. The network seems to be behind them--for now.

BTW, I sent you a comment to be added as a friend. I would love to follow anyone who likes Kings, Torchwood, FNL, and ATWT, just like me. (Also, we live in the same county. :->)

oh Tim Riggins... can I just say how excited I am for Taylor as Gambit in the new Wolverine movie???? SQUEEEEE!!!!

Saw another trailer for Wolverine yesterday. I leaned over to my best friend and said if his performance as Gambit does not make Taylor a star, there is no justice.

I LOVED IT!! :)

And upon a second viewing, I saw the character of Jospeh a little differently than I saw him initially last night. At first I wondered if he was a "fling" of Jack's... but upon a second viewing and seeing the subtleties in their two interactions I'm quite sure we'll see more of Michael. And I did notice the recurring character notice on Michael's website which is a wonderful thing! :)

Again, LOVED the show and can't wait to see more.
Chelsea Frew: Kings_5_Jack_Silas_closeupchelseafrew on March 31st, 2009 02:56 pm (UTC)
Oh, no. Definitely not a fling. When Joseph said "ILY", I read that as not nearly the first time he'd said that. Jack did not seem surprised by that, just angry to have to deal with the reality that he had to let Joseph go. And the fervor of Jack's fight...that was not anger at losing a fling, that was anger at losing someone he loves.

I am super obsessed with this show right now, and am formulating an idea for a Jack/Joseph story in my head. I am very, very glad Joseph will be back, though I will be unhappy if his reappearance josses my story idea. *G*

Where's Michael's site?

I agree. Can't wait to see how much they develop this story. Michael is such a strong actor I'm looking forward to seeing how this all unfolds.

Michael's (I believe it's still an unofficial fan site) is at:

Thanks for the link. :-)

And I, too, can't wait to see where they go with the whole Jack/Joseph story. If in your contemplation of the storyline, you come up with any theories (how they met, how long they've been going out, etc.), please share, because I'd love opinions as I consider my story idea.

P.S. I really need a Jack/Joseph icon. I am hoping the other Kings fans will oblige me shortly... (I also need Pippin ones. Then to ditch some of my icons to make room!)
Sheri: Pippin 02shutterbug93 on April 4th, 2009 08:06 pm (UTC)
I made a couple of Pippin icons if you're interested in using them... Nothing fancy at all, but Ty's in them. ;) They're here...



if you're interested. :)
Chelsea Frew: Tychelseafrew on April 7th, 2009 03:12 pm (UTC)
I snagged both of those. Thank you so much!! Now I just have to delete some older icons to make space!

I'm addicted now - I LOVED it!! And having Michael as a recurring character (and Jack's love interest) certainly helps! :D

I wanted to watch Kings but forgot to record. I have to schedule that so I can watch it. I heard it is a good show!

Hulu.com. it's how I got started on the show, since I forgot it was on the night it premiered. yes, I will enable anyone and everyone I can to watch this show. it cannot die without a fight.
Sheri: Michael Arden - Bareshutterbug93 on March 31st, 2009 07:08 am (UTC)
Taking your advice and going to Hulu.com to watch the episodes that I missed... :)
Sheri: Michael Arden 02shutterbug93 on March 31st, 2009 07:07 am (UTC)
It's a great show!! I RARELY watch TV at all,... in fact the only reason I tuned last night was to see Michael's guest spot... but I love the show! You should really watch it. :)
Aparna: Musical Notesinspirethoughts on March 31st, 2009 06:39 pm (UTC)
I will watch it definitely. :)
