White Collar - Blue Skies
I have not been updating this journal for a very long time. O.o

Anyway! I have seen Inception and am all over the Cobb/Arthur. Or Arthur/Cobb. I am not fussy. There is, however, an awfullll lot of Eames/Arthur around.

That aside, I am here to express my excitement over a series I am rather late to - White Collar. I have not done a I am So Crazy About This Series post + picspam for so long. :D For a quick introduction to White Collar, I'm going to grab a summary I found off the first link below, and it goes like this:

White Collar is about the unlikely partnership of a con artist and an FBI agent who have been playing cat and mouse for years. Neal Caffrey, a charming criminal mastermind, is finally caught by his nemesis, FBI Agent Peter Burke. When Neal escapes from a maximum-security prison to find his lost love, Peter nabs him once again. Rather than returning to jail, Neal suggests an alternate plan: he'll provide his criminal expertise to assist the Feds in catching other elusive criminals. Initially wary, Peter quickly finds that Neal provides insight and intuition that can't be found on the right side of the law. (usanetwork.com)

1. You absolutely need to see ailette's White Collar introduction post. She calls it the "Why You Should Absolutely Go And Watch White Collar" post, and I tell you, it would have worked for me.

2. You should also see copperbadge's series introduction post.

3. You might also be interested to know that it was actually originally pitched in the style of Catch Me As You Can, but like this:



4. You might also be interested in these key promotional pictures that summarise what the series is about.

5. You should see this delightful image-packed post summarising the first episode with screencaps. It is not in English. This actually does not matter!

I haven't done a picspam in AAAAAAGES SO I WILL DO ONE NOW.

this is insanely image-tastic.


the crazy, incredibly pretty, shenanigans that you can expect from White Collar.


SO CLASSY.


cast shenanigans. AWWW.


This is the OT3, by the way. :)







in which I crack and there are a many gorgeous pictures of Neal.


Not Neal, strictly speaking - this is the actor who plays him, Matt Bomer, as Bryce Larkin of Chuck.












I've seen this icon'd as "idk my bff peter". ROFL.


STRICTLY SPEAKING IT IS TOTALLY UNNECESSARY FOR HIM TO BE SHIRTLESS IN THIS PHOTOGRAPH.

But wow he makes statutes and limitation look even sexier than they already are! \O/


I should actually change my layout at some point in time, I think I've had this one for... I think at least two years. Oh my, I've had it since April 2008. I really think it's past time for a change.

Ok... I have to watch this now... and will have to persuade my friend to d/l it for me onto my HDD...
11th-Aug-2010 07:17 pm (UTC) - *grin*
GLAD YOU LIKED! :) Hope you've been able to see it? If you're in Singapore, it shows on Channel 5 on Monday at 10pm. The second episode of the first season will show next week Monday - it's not the best though, don't give up if you don't like it: if you can, try to see the first episode at least, that one is awesome!.
11th-Aug-2010 07:54 pm (UTC) - Re: *grin*
muahahahahahaha turns out that when I asked my friend about it, she told me that she WAS ALREADY WATCHING IT... so I now have to wait for her to send it to me :D

~Not in SG currently~

COOL! :) Glad you have it sort-of nearly-on hand!

If you were in the US the episodes would be free on: http://www.hulu.com/white-collar T_T

Rest of the world needs to content itself with cable / online streaming / other means.

Episode 1 of Season 2 is available for free on itunes, though!

AAAAAAAAAH!

SOMEBODY PINCH ME! I must be dreaming! :O!!
11th-Aug-2010 07:18 pm (UTC) - \O/
YOU'RE NOT DREAMING :D

haha now I'm thinking about Inception. :)
11th-Aug-2010 07:28 pm (UTC)
T-then my dream has come true! ♥!

...fjdlkfjldkjflkdjf. I am going to have to get my hands on this movie somehow, aren't I. ^^;; Perhaps then all those new!Arthur fics will suddenly start making sense. It's like the entire Merlin fandom abandoned ship and stranded on Inception.
11th-Aug-2010 07:35 pm (UTC) - I JUST REALISED
THAT I CANNOT HAVE AN "I'M WITH STUPID" ICON FOR WHITE COLLAR BECAUSE NEITHER PETER NOR NEAL IS STUPID.

:(

Or if they are they are equally stupid.

WHITE COLLAR HAS EATEN MY BRAIN.

WHOA, new!Arthur? XD ALSO POOR MERLIN FANDOM. After all they are between seasons now and must do something to occupy themselves!
11th-Aug-2010 07:58 pm (UTC) - HEHEHEE.
I'M PRETTY SURE THE SMOOCHING ICON > "I'M WITH STUPID" ICON? *grin!*

... although if you really had to have one I suppose you could have one of the OT3 - WITH ELIZABETH BEING THE ONE TO GO "I'M WITH STUPID" AT BOTH NEAL AND PETER. Because compared to her they are totally clueless.

Inception!Arthur has taken over Prince Prat's place in the heart of Merlin fangirls across the globe. *laughs!* Considering there's footage of Donkey!Prince out there in the S3 trailer I am not surprised.
11th-Aug-2010 08:07 pm (UTC) - LOL
OF COURSE. THE KISSING ICON TRUMPS THE STUPID ICON ANY TIME ANY DAY. HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO BE IN A MAINSTREAM FANDOM WITH AN OFFICIAL KISSING ICON FOR A SLASH PAIRING. ROFL.

YES. YES. COMPARED TO ELIZABETH THOSE TWO ARE IDIOTS. YOU ARE BRILLIANT. IT WOULD ALSO BE A GOOD OT3 ICON BUT THE ONLY THING IS FINDING THE RIGHT IMAGE. HMMMM.

... donkey!Prince? ... Do I want to know?
11th-Aug-2010 08:21 pm (UTC) - xDD
YOU JUST CALLED ME BRILLIANT.

I should rename to that. I could be the next glorious. ;)

FKDJFKLDJFKLD. FLATTERY. IT WORKS ON ME. ♥

Hmmmm~! I can't think of a good image at the moment - but I'm sure there's one out there! xDD! Elizabeth often has this I AM SURROUNDED BY CAVEMEN aka I AM THE MOST PATIENT WOMAN WOMAN ON EARTH aka WHAT HAVE I DONE TO DESERVE THESE TWO? look on her face. :')

Donkey!Prince: in S3 there is apparently an episode in which Arthur is turned into a donkey. Gwen is there. It's in the S3 trailer.

I refuse to watch the trailer. *wince!*
11th-Aug-2010 07:35 pm (UTC) - FORGOT TO SAY
MAN CANNOT LIVE BY MERLIN ALOONNEEEEEE
11th-Aug-2010 08:00 pm (UTC)
YES. THAT'S WHY THEY INVENTED THE NEW SHERLOCK 3-PARTER.

HAVE YOU SEEN IT YET? YOU WILL LOVE IT.

ACTUALLY, I DARE SAY YOU WILL LOVE IT MORE THAN WHITE COLLAR. <33333
11th-Aug-2010 08:04 pm (UTC) - WAIT WAIT
I HAVE SEEN PARTS OF EPISODE 1 OF SHERLOCK, AND THE REASON I WILL NOT LOVE IT AS MUCH AS WHITE COLLAR IS:

1. STEVEN MOFFAT WORKS ON IT; I AM FRIGHTENED OF HIM AND WHAT HE DOES TO HIS CHARACTERS;
2. NOBODY IS AS PRETTY AS NEAL IN IT;
3. I DON'T SHIP HOLMES/WATSON (I ship Holmes/Lestrade HA HA HA);
4. It is not as SILLY and FUNNY as White Collar;
5. ONLY THREE EPISODES SO FAR, even if it is being extended. NEED MORE.

I want the guy who plays Sherlock to play Neil Gaiman, though. :D
11th-Aug-2010 08:15 pm (UTC) - FIGURES. :')
OMG! *DIES LAUGHING!*

I agree that no one is as pretty as Neal! ^^; I am not a big fan of Benedict, although I do love his drawl-y voice... b-but I kind of wish Colin Morgan had been Sherlock? Except with an actual passable English accent, that is.

HOW CAN YOU NOT SHIP HOLMES/WATSON? :O!

OH WAIT YOU'RE THE ONE THAT LIKED CONRAD/YUURI LOLOLOLOL. AND MURATA. (J/K! xD! I'M SORRY?)

4 & 5: YES! UNFORTUNATELY! ALTHOUGH I COUNTED NINE GAY JOKES IN EP 1 AND THERE ARE LOADS MORE IN EP 3.

Apparently there will be an actual season if the DVD sales go well, though? I can't waait!

I want the guy who plays Sherlock to play Neil Gaiman, though.

EH? O.o; I haven't been keeping up! (You wouldn't either if you knew how often people make Coraline jokes around me these days. Heh.) He does look like a hotter version of Neil Gaiman... Oooh-er.
28th-Jul-2010 06:09 pm (UTC)
HEY YOU! HOW ARE YOU! Glad to see your new update.

GOD DAMN, it's been centuries since I heard from you or me commenting in your journal, ORZ.

Time to blow some shit up again in LJ? LOL

ANYWAY.

YES.

I've seen Inception.

And yes.

I'M IN LOVE WITH THE POINT MAN/ARTHUR.

PEACE!
11th-Aug-2010 07:37 pm (UTC) - I totally needed an inception icon for this!
SO HAVE AT ARTHUR'S "EVERYONE HAS COLLAPSED" FACE.

I AM SO GLAD YOU LIKE ARTHUR! *HIGH-FIVE!* HE IS AWESOME. HE DESERVES LOVE. AND ATTENTION.

HIIIII! ♥ THANK YOU FOR STILL BEING AROUND DESPITE MY DISAPPEARING TO HEAVEN-KNOWS-WHERE! ♥ GLAD TO SEE YOU'RE STILL AROUND TOO, HOPE YOU'RE DOING FINE! :)

TOTALLY TIME TO SPREAD LOVE AROUND ;D
28th-Jul-2010 06:22 pm (UTC) - (I don't have any WC icons? WHAT?)
I still can't believe aefallen is back! xDD! I am sitting here grinning like an idiot, seriously. *laughs!*

YOUR POST. IT IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING I HAVE EVER SEEN.

White Collar~! ♥!

There are only a few shows that have NEVER disappointed me - and White Collar is one of them. (House M.D. and Castle are the others! xD)

Every. Single. Episode. is worth watching, IMO. There's never one that's less interesting than the others. They're all fantastic. What's even better is that White Collar's second season promises to be even better than the first one. (IT HAS MORE DIANA FOR STARTERS? LOL.)

I knew you would like this series! xD! I just wasn't sure if you would have the time to give it a chance? B-but, I knew that if you did give it a chance you'd really enjoy it. I'm so glad you did~! Not just because NOW I FINALLY KNOW WHERE TO GO FOR QUALITY FIC RECS either! I swear! <333
11th-Aug-2010 07:40 pm (UTC) - NOW you have WC icons, though! \O/
You're such a darling. *HUGS YOU FOREVERRRRR*

IS NOT NEAL CAFFREY THE PRETTIEST THING YOU HAVE EVER SEEN. :D

Every time I think for more than a moment about Castle I think about your Castle!youtube link in which Castle's fantasy is, well, that girl being totally hot and saying his name in an incredibly sexy way.

IF SOMEONE HAD WAVED COPIOUS AMOUNTS OF NEAL AND PETER IN MY FACE I WOULD HAVE JUMPED ON THIS SERIES. Actually what made me start watching it was GOOD FANFICTION. :D (I FORGET WHAT EVEN MADE ME START READING IT)

\O/ I TOTALLY WILL REC YOU STUFF IF YOU WANT. :)
(Deleted comment)
11th-Aug-2010 07:41 pm (UTC) - OH MY HEAVENS HIIII
I LOVE THAT YOU LOVE THIS SHOW. SO SO SO MUCH.



IT IS ALL THAT NEEDS TO BE SAID.

ALSO I LOVE YOUR ICON IT IS SO CRAZY. ♥
29th-Jul-2010 01:46 am (UTC)
I LOVE WHITE COLLAR!! And man I really need to see Inception.
11th-Aug-2010 07:42 pm (UTC) - AHHH MAN
I CANNOT STOP STARING AT YOUR AVATAR ICON.

*_______*

ALSO I AM SO GLAD YOU LOVE WHITE COLLAR! \O/

WOULD LOVE YOUR THOUGHTS ON INCEPTION WHEN YOU SEE IT! :)
29th-Jul-2010 02:11 pm (UTC)
... ok pardon me, I got White Collar mixed up with Leverage XDXD

RE: Inception - more of a Saito/Cobb person myself, I have to say. Though movie definitely warrants another watch.
11th-Aug-2010 07:44 pm (UTC) - that is such an adorable icon!
!!! IT'S ALL GOOD. NO WORRIES. :D

Xylia likes White Collar! :D Any chance we could persuade you to give it a try?

I have totally rec'd you Saito/Cobb over on the other place! :) Not sure if it is your thing but it's what I found that I liked. :)

MOVIE TOTALLY WARRANTS ANOTHER WATCH TO REALLY ADMIRE HOW WELL IT'S PUT TOGETHER. I confess during my first watch I spent a lot of time simply absorbing plot.

29th-Jul-2010 07:00 pm (UTC)
sobs. you make me want to watch this....

*adds to list of shows to watch... one day.... soon.... probably....*
11th-Aug-2010 07:44 pm (UTC) - :D:D:D
AND NOW YOU HAVE AND NOW WE CAN SHARE THE LOVE TOGETHER. ♥
31st-Jul-2010 04:51 am (UTC)
Bah, Neil is an overblown prettyboy, who is in fact so desirable that the writers themselves find themselves wanting to bed him. The result is that every episode tries just a little too hard to make him cool and smooth and the guy with an answer for everything.

Now I ask you, where's the love for Peter? The perfect straight man, an equally straight cop who is constantly being put in situations he is not comfortable with, but somehow always managing to adapt and overcome! P4E, man.

(Seriously though, from the little I've seen it really is a great show. On that I couldn't agree more.)
11th-Aug-2010 07:47 pm (UTC)
so desirable that the writers themselves find themselves wanting to bed him
*giggles* I like the way you expressed that. And yeah: Neal's range of expertise is completely and utterly unreal.

I LOVE PETER; HE IS AMAZING. ... Forgive the capslocking: he really is! And Tim DeKay is even more amazing than Peter, if that were even possible. ♥ What I love about Peter is that he has to be smarter than Neal, and he is. ♥ It's just easier for me to express Neal!love through a whole bunch of photographs, but Peter!love for me has to be expressed through a text!saga.

(*grin* It is an awesome show, though. ♥)
12th-Aug-2010 10:22 am (UTC)
Also, he totally reminds me of Darrin from Bewitched. I don't know why but I find the resemblance to be most excellent.
4th-Aug-2010 04:15 pm (UTC)
Randomly, I support Eames/Arthur. I think the part that did it for me was in the trailer where Eames went "You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling."
11th-Aug-2010 07:49 pm (UTC) - :)
Your icon brings back lovely memories. :)

HIII THERE. *beams*

I THOUGHT YOU MIGHT SUPPORT EAMES/ARTHUR. A fair few of the people I know do. AND THE VAST MAJORITY OF FANDOM DOES. AND YES THAT LINE APPEARS TO BE A MAJOR INCENTIVE. :)
