Sam? Sammy Sam? How the heck did you find me here? I mean, that’s great, but how?
As some of you may have noticed, I’ve made drastic changes to my blog. Yes, all those pictures of Tom Hiddleston, Aaron Tveit, and Enjorlas are gone. The reason, I assure you, is simple.

*Flying squish* Hi. I’m glad to be back. :)
I have just watched the Graceland pilot and intend to semi-review it. Let me start off by saying exactly just how weird it is to be seeing Aaron Tveit’s face on my laptop in perfect clarity. This is coming from a girl who has had to survive on secretly-filmed bootleg videos of three different Broadway shows for years, one of which was particular hard to find until recently (yes, I’m looking at you, CMIYC).
Anyway, back to Graceland. Aaron was, of course, superb. The poor boy was practically born to play the white, all-American, East coast, top-of-his-class, perfect hair (not so perfect sense of style, but we’ll touch on that later), naive, button-down, clean cut FBI agent. And he did it very well, which I was expecting him to. This is the man who made my beloved Enjolras the perfect marble lover of liberty that Victor Hugo wrote him as. So of course, I was expecting nothing less than perfection from our dear Aaron.
The other characters were also very good. Unfortunately, I don’t feel like I have enough material at my disposal to critique them. Also, I’m not familiar with any of the other actors. I’m pretty sure that I’ve seen the actress who plays Lauren on NCIS before and the actor who plays Paul Briggs looks familiar, but that’s about it.
The plot was good. While being a cop show, Graceland definitely had a different feel to it. It wasn’t so procedural in the humdrum usual sort of way. The case was not one that was dropped on a desk in the morning and solved by the end of the episode. Actually, there was no case in the traditional sense and that was refreshing. Very refreshing.
I’m not even going to speak of the ending. Halfway through the episode I was thinking “How much do I really want to see Aaron Tveit on my laptop every week?” I honestly was not sure if I was going to continue watching it once the series officially started. Then the ending came and now I’m on another one of Jeff Eastin’s damn brilliant hooks.
Please tell me what you think. And be honest. I can take it.

I’m sorry, have you met me? She doesn’t make me act like an adult, and I’ve got some years on you, girl.
…Not in person, no.
Thanks for all the warm welcomes, everyone. It is good to be back, I must say.

Want to crash on my couch? You don’t have to act like an adult here.
I would, but unfortunately, I have obligations in my hometown. And are you sure your mom wouldn’t make me act like an adult?
