Oh you utter, utter bastards

Dear friends list people,

Please download the season finale of Spooks forthwith, so I can talk about it. The Holy Shit Quotient was 11 -- one louder -- even though I kinda sorta knew it was coming.

Those utter, utter bastards -- and I mean that as a compliment.

Also, season four is filming already.

Finally, the actors who play Harry and Ruth admitted on the BBC3 documentary on the series shown after the finale that they were playing it as if Ruth and Harry were very attracted and a bit in love with each other. I believe the technical term they were looking for was USTy. Am in love with this idea. Ruth/Harry OTP.

While you're downloading, get The Smoking Room, which was very funny tonight.

But Spooks though... Oy. I love that show.

Wheeee! I've been seeing that, and I wondered if I was hallucinating it! Wheee!

And I've been haunting SN.org since Saturday night, waiting for the file to go up. Will check tonight when I get home. Which is soon.

Eeee!

I have been too, and I still have not seen a Spooks torrent. I've been checking other places, and no torrent to be found. Bastards!

I can't believe nowhere has it yet. It was on BBC3 on Saturday. I can't even find the suprnova section for Spooks.

SN has spooks under "other" but they still don't have 10. No one does. Sigh. I was hoping that it didn't broadcast on Saturday for some reason, but alas! (and alack!)

You TEASE.

How many episodes were in season 3, anyway? 10?

I'm not trying to tease, I just want you all to see it because this season really has been excellent almost all the way through (if a bit preposterous, as usual) and I want to find a group people to whom I can say "Did you SEE *THAT*?!!!OMG11eleventyone!!" and similar.

10 eps this season btw.

Damn my exile in Norwich! I have no television and... Actually, I didn't even manage to see Season 2, let alone Season 3. I wanted to, though: does that count? If you know of anyone who has Seasons 2 and 3 on VCD, would you tip me the wink? Will pay for disks and postage, etc.

And, um: hullo! Have friended you.

Sure. I suspect the s2 DVDs are about to get very cheap post-Christmas in the sales (there are piles of them in HMV right now and I don't suppose they'll sell loads over the festive period)

I didn't tape Spooks this year. Probably should have.

Hello. *g*

Going to gym now. When I come back, there better be a torrent!

Oh my God, they killed.........you bastards!

Good grief, they nuked the whole show this season. How inventive!

I think a new title sequence is pretty necessary, yes. This script was really tight though, I don't know where they're going to find 10 minutes to cut for the A&E broadcast, unless they cut the crucial speech because it contains extreme profanity. But if ever there was a case for it...

Do A&E allow the more extreme swearing in the manner of HBO?

I have never seen extreme swearing on A&E.

se_parsons is right. They'll do an occasional "shit" if it is really appropriate for the scene but that's about it.

Take Care

Among the many good things about coming back to the UK for Christmas--getting to see the Spooks season finale. But ARGH!!!!! How could they?

Am actually incapable of discussing. Too distressed. The Smoking Room was funny, though.

I don't know. They are evil in a way that I like. I was genuinely open-mouthed that they had the bottle.

Hi. cofax7 sent me here, because I was wondering why no one was talking Spooks on LJ.

::sheds copious tears::

God, I knew it was coming too, but that made it worse. The pain, the anticipated pain, and still ... shock.

I need a million Spooks icons, but they'd all be spoilery for the season, and probably all be Danny. Well, maybe a little Adam.

Hello there.

I was sort of expecting it and yet not. They did it pretty early -- about 9.30 and I was all "how will they fill the next half hour and keep it tense?" but they did. I genuinely didn't know what was going to happen to Fiona either. It was the first time I'd cared about Fiona in that ep too.

need a million Spooks icons, but they'd all be spoilery for the season, and probably all be Danny. Well, maybe a little Adam.

I'm going to make some this weekend, some which are expressive of anguish, perhaps *g* Anyway, you're welcome to take 'em when I post 'em -- or if you have an idea of one you would like, I'd be happy to make it for you

::flails::

Just watched.

I am bereft! I didn't want to see that! Danny! My Woobie! And he was all strong and taking on the hard thing because Adam was on the phone and Fiona had a little boy and ::sobs::

Bastards! ::snorfles into sleeve::

You will either be intrigued or horrified by the B.H.'s idea--that the man should have shot Fiona to prove his point, instead. Because that would have been even more horrible (and then Danny and Adam could have had heaps and heaps of pain), but rather to the point.

This sort of thing is why I'm secretly relieved that my husband is not an Evil Genius, but sad that he doesn't moonlight as a script doctor.

The visuals from the end of episode five, in the bathroom, just wreck me. Okay, not more than halfway through episode 10, but you know what I mean.

I did feel for Fiona, more than I'd expected. The meta part of me had decided overall what had to happen, but the paranoid side took a little longer to decide how. And then after episode five, and six and three ... yeah, that's how it was going down.

So, if you do put together any Danny/pain magic -- I'm your girl.
