What I find funny, and by that I mean disturbing, is that she had to clarify a joke! If this was Stana's boyfriend why is it anyone's concern or business? Again people need to realize that Stana is not Kate Beckett, just a character she plays. *shake my head*
This is the first time I've really come across the idea of 'shipping real people. It's not something I've known for any other shows I've ever watched. Is this... commonplace? Because the idea of it seems really, really squicky to me. These aren't characters, they're actual people, and yet fans say 'I wish they were sleeping together'? I guess, from an objective point of view, I could say that Nathan would be a lucky blighter if he was dating Stana, but then I'd say that of anyone who dated her. Still, you've got to think, have these folks considered what might happen to the show if the stars dated and then had a bitter break up?
And Adam comes off like a nice guy too in this interview, I can see why he gets on with Nathan that's all I will say, I try not to follow actors private lives so what I've seen of Adam so far just relates to Castle/Firefly and the odd interview which suits me fine. I really want to enjoy this episode for these two interacting and forget about the Kate/Rick angst which is probably impossible but a girl can dream.
I'm choosing to have selective blindness here, because I think Adam Baldwin's awesome (sorry, Slaughter), and will continue to think that. Don't care what his political views are, even if they do clash violently with mine. Still, I would say that his willingness to send up the right wing, gung ho stereotype, as Casey in Chuck might mean he's at least got a sense of humour about his place in the political spectrum.
Oh my God, I think I love you. I felt like I was the only person on the planet who DESPISED those two together.
Heh. The think is, I went into the show really wanting to like Lee and Kara (though she bugged me a little right from the start). I can't really get into a show if I can't root for the hero, and those two were the closest the show had to traditional heroes. And for most of the first two seasons, I did still like Lee, and I still quite liked his relationship with Kara. Pretty much up until she went and brought Sam back. That was kind of the death knell of it, for me. All downhill, for the two of them, and I recall a scene in a mid-season 3 episode where they were in the bar with their respective spouses, after deciding to stay with them. They both just looked so bitter and miserable and hateful, despite it all being their own fault, that my only reaction was "oh, please let these two turn out to be Cylons so Roslin can chuck them out of an airlock".
At least that show still had other characters to root for, though. With Castle, if Castle and Beckett became as bad as Lee and Kara, there's no way on earth I'd be able to watch the show.
