There is no Human race, there is only the Master race.

You know what? THAT? IS KIND OF AWESOME. Billions of Simms. OMG. HAHAHAHAHA. IT WINS. I take back every bad thing I have ever said about this show. (Not really --- I have some issues regarding the 1D villains of Naismith and his daughter, the use of Obama, and the sexism inherent in saying Lucy Saxon was corrupted, but this is hilarious and fantastic.)

Just when I think I couldn't love John Simm any more than I already do, he goes and does something even more awesome than before. This is so ridiculous in the awesome way. Flirty Master in a dress especially killed me. HAHAHAHAHA!

Oooh, the confidential.

Emo!Master. Hah! "He's got an insatiable appetite. He eats tramps. Like I would if I was hungry." ♥

The mask is creepy as fuck. No one can really capture John's face, but, that mask? Especially bad. It's just disturbing.

EEEEE! John in many, many different costumes. Seriously, John, why do you put yourself through so much work? WHY, SIMM, WHY? (Because you're awesome and we love you for it?) This is very Being John Malkovich ... and is going to inspire so much crossdressing!fic. Oh, man.

One big John Simmness. Mmmmm. My kind of episode.

The crawling and putting heads together part? Oh yes. That was hot.

I was too busy rolling around on the floor dying of laughter to find crossdressing Simm hot, though. Maybe on rewatch.

(There was one outfit --- I think that of former Trinity Wells, with this super open neck collar, and I was kind of... ngggghhhh, neck. But that was it.)

I am trying to think... there was one role where I didn't think John Simm was the most engaging and attractive man ever to grace my screen. And now I can't remember what it was.

Actually, there were two. 1. Vincent Van Gogh. 2. The pictures I saw of him as Elling.

There's something about him that really speaks to me. When he's on the screen, I want to watch him and only him. (Which made Life on Mars difficult on the second rewatch, because my eyes were constantly flickering between the Simm and the Glenister.) I even found him attractive as Kendle in Men of the World.

He's just --- he's really hot. Burning hot. In almost all of his incarnations.

And the thing is, he's an amazing actor.

Like, for the longest time, I thought he was a bit monotone, because Sam's a bit monotone. But no. That's just Sam. Simm has a whole range of inflection in his voice that he uses to his advantage.

He wins, so totally. \o/

The moments that did get me in this episode were almost entirely small inflections of his. Not even necessarily tone of voice...sometimes it was all in a way he'd cock his head, not even necessarily saying anything. A look on his face. He can tell you so much with a look, it's astounding.

And Wilf. Mostly, I've enjoyed him since the beginning. He's great (with a couple exceptions.)

Dude. There was that moment with Tennant when he played it completely real and I may have spontaneously combusted.
5th-Jan-2010 06:00 am (UTC)
There was one point where J walked away muttering, "why don't they just fuck already?!?!"

And he doesn't slash people, generally speaking. XDDDDDDD

This is when I sound like one of those awful conservatives, but you know what? Perhaps as a rebellion, I just find most of the Doctor/Master slashy interaction annoyingly over the top. I was very much rolling my eyes and saying "okay, Rusty, we get it."

:( That should not be my reaction to awesome non-heteronormativity in family television, dammit.

I have to wait until tonight to see the first episode with John...so not too bad...and I can't wait to see the master in a dress!!

But I had the amazing good fortune to fly over to London last month to see Jonn in Speaking in Tongues. The first time I couldn't tell you what the show was all about because all I did was stare at John. It was so wonderful to see him live and in person just walking around a few feet away from me. The second time I vowed to pay attention to the play but I still had my moments of just staring at this beautiful man. At one time he gave one of those funny Sam Tyler smerks and I was instantly transported back to Life on Mars. I hope I will be able to make it over again next year to see Hamlet. It seems it's the only way to get to see him in anything of substance. But the good news is since I know the story of Hamlet I can go back to just staring!

I'm really hoping I can go over for Hamlet too. I need to know the dates, bah! That's kind of something I'll always kick myself for.
26th-Dec-2009 01:21 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I'm very anxious to find out about dates too. I signed up to be on the Sheffield theatre web site so I can get email notices of all new information to come out of the theatre. If I can't get over in September I'm going to pray that the play moves to London in 2011.

John Simm's playing Hamlet there, September.

HEEEEEEEE! *\o/* Thank you! (Knew I should've applied for that job at the theatres. XD) I'm reassured to see there's nowt, apart from a press release, on their website I missed about it.

I kind of found him disturbing rather than hot in the dresses, which is weird, because I usually don't when men wear women's wear, but on the other hand, I got to see him strapped to a chair and wearing a dog collar with a leash, so I've had all I can ask for. Oh, and there was the homoerotic mind meld. I didn't mind that either.
27th-Dec-2009 10:35 pm (UTC)
I found him funny rather than hot. Did you watch the confidential? He said he wasn't very dainty in stockings. The way he said 'dainty' was hot.

Rusty's a slasher, no doubt about that. It's a shame I always want to punch him in the face.
27th-Dec-2009 07:56 pm (UTC)
Um, hi! This is me, a tragically chronic lurker, de-lurking, so that is why it's awkward:
Would you mind if I friended you? Cause you write amazing Life on Mars fic.

And to attempt to validate this awkward friend-asking post, I must say that I found the millions of John Simms hilarious. My Dad was just creeped out, but I was LOLing. Although he did LOL at that "Master Race" pun.
27th-Dec-2009 10:38 pm (UTC)
Hi! :D Friend away!

It was so funny, wasn't it? I loved how enthusiastic the Master was about everything.
27th-Dec-2009 10:41 pm (UTC)
Yeah, they really kicked up the Master's nuttiness to the next level. It was a bit unsettling, actually, especially when he was OM NOM NOMing everything.
27th-Dec-2009 10:42 pm (UTC)
Yeah, that grossed me out a bit.
5th-Jan-2010 05:52 am (UTC)
That actually cracked me up. It was just SO over the top. But I figure, with writing this bad, what other choice do you have? I totally think I got why he played it this way. XD
5th-Jan-2010 05:55 am (UTC)
I grant you all of that --- but it was still disgusting to watch.
5th-Jan-2010 06:01 am (UTC)
Through the filter of the TV, it was amusing. In person, I would probably have reacted like the guys at the construction site. XD
