Thanksgiving Fun!

I wanted to do something special on this site for the holiday, and after all kinds of lame ideas (okay, the live-blogging rewatch of The Mouse and the Mayflower would have been pretty awesome. To me, anyway), I came up with this brilliant idea. I ship hardcore. I mean, when I get obsessed with a ship, there are few who are as intense as I am. They're provided me with so much entertainment over the years, so they're what I'm thankful for this year.

Sadly, the only day I have off is Thanksgiving, so I can't just do an epic one day marathon. So I've decided to spread it over the five days of the Thanksgiving "weekend": Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. I've decided on twelve ships. Those ships are, in no particular order...

Josh/Donna, The West Wing
Jeff/Annie, Community
Matt/Harriet, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip
Mason/Daisey, Dead Like Me
Mitchell/Annie, Being Human
Ned/Chuck, Pushing Daisies
Eric/Sookie, True Blood
Jessica/Hoyt, True Blood
Rose/Ten, Doctor Who
Charlie/Claire, Lost
Veronica/Logan, Veronica Mars
Raylon/Ava, Justified

I will watch one episode for each ship and then write something about it. It might just be a shipper analysis, but I might also be inspired to write a fic. Who knows!

This is where I'd appreciate some help. I'd love it if you guys voted on the episodes I watch, because it's hard to narrow it down.

Aw, cute idea. (I could only vote for Matt/Harriet and Josh/Donna because they are the only ones I'm familiar with. And, wow, 17 People is way out in front. I love that ep. so much. The flowers! The head-smacking! The red lights! Hee.)

I was expecting Gaza or The Cold or Transition to pull out ahead, because when you see people talking about the most important J/D episodes, you always see them talking about those. But 17 People is probably my favorite. The other three are super important episodes because things actually started happening, but as a shipper the UST was always so much more fun to watch.

Way to hard to pick just one for Annie and Mitchell. S2E7 had the dialogue, but S2E8 had the physical/spiritual.

All right, I'll be starting this either late tonight or early tomorrow. I might not pick the one that got the top votes. It will really depend on whether or not it's easy for me to get the episode and the episode length. Right now, I'm sure about these...

The West Wing - 17 People
Community - Debate
Studio 60 - The Christmas Show
Dead Like Me - Forget Me Not
Pushing Daisies - Pie-lette
True Blood - I Will Rise Up AND Evil is Going On
Lost - Greatest Hits
Veronica Mars - Weapons of Class Destruction
Justified - Blind Spot

So I still need to make a choice on Doctor Who and Being Human

BEING HUMAN....
You should definitely watch season 2 ep.7 and 8. The episodes were soo well done, and they just leave you wanting more. :)

Hope that helps. ;)
