Vid recs  
This week I'm reccing some vids for smaller or nascent fandoms that I'm personally interested in. Hopefully the handfuls of people on my f'list who share those interests will be glad of the finds! And if you're adventurous, each of these vids contains the flavour of the shows they use as source--try a taster!

Law and Order: UK
Yes, already! tearful_eye's Private Goes Public is an elegant Alesha-focused vidlet. I really liked the intimacy and the sense of sense of tension that was built from relatively little material.

Ah, Middleman! Amusing delight of last season. I miss you! arefadedaway's Wake Up reminds me of all your whimsy.

Mock if you will, but those dudes were hot. I liked Friday and I liked the penthouse treehouse! Every so often I break out talitha78's Freedom and remind myself of the silly and ok, badly written, escapism.

Big Love
I find I can't watch much of it without feeling queasy, but every so often I find an episode or two of Big Love interesting. And even if I'm not an avid viewer, I think xandra_ptv's They is a terrific ensemble vid.

True Blood
I'm sure this fandom is going to result in some terrific vidding--it's fantastic material--but there's surprisingly little out there as yet. rae1013's Alcoholic Friends is my favourite so far, with its snarky look at Sookie and the vamps.

I miss Middleman too! :( I wish it would come back but I doubt it will. I haven't heard anything about it. That makes me sad, it was such a great show! :(

Yeah, I think it was a flash in the pan, but it was fun while it lasted.

One of my favorite actors, Kyle Gallner, *points to icon* was on Big Love. I've always wanted to rent it; is it at all worth it?

It is well made and well acted and I do find it compelling. I just find it a little... voyeuristic? or something. The culture portrayed is challenging to me, yet intriguing, so I guess I feel faintly guilty about watching it. But the characters are very believably crafted and the drama can be quite entertaining.

Thanks! I seem to be going through this weird phase of watching vids for shows I've never even seen, so these are really useful. ;)

Conversely, I'll save the True Blood one for later, since I've just started to watch it!

Oh, I go through those phases too! Yes! I might have to do a week of 'vids of things I've never seen'.

I'm fond of True Blood--I can't wait til there are more vids for it!

Hee hee, yeah, get used to it! :p Aww, Friday, I miss him so.

It's very perky! Like the show! ;)

I've only seen L&O: UK out of the shows mentioned... how approachable are the vids for those who have no knowledge of the shows?

Reasonably so, I'd say--Middleman and Crusoe are very light. 'Alcoholic Friends' will probably seem a bit weirder, but then it's a very weird show... ;)
