I have a renewed sense of love for Tarzan, one of my favorite childhood characters, lately, and I recently stumbled across the early 2000s short-lived Tarzan. Despite being an AU, shifted to the modern era, and combining elements of romance and police shows, the format works surprisingly well, thanks to the wonderful love story between John and Jane. Some of the characters, like Jane's sister, are woefully under-used, but others, like John's aunt, are fabulous, even in their little screentime. I love the other worldliness of John's behavior, such as being completely unaware of proper social behavior, and his constant touching of Jane's face and hair. I also love the delightful gymnastics he does.
Despite being the last person to discover American Horror Story, I plunged into season four, and am completely in love with it. The 1950s carnival setting, offbeat characters, and pretty cinematography hit so many of my tropes and favorite things, and I have a soft spot for creepy anthologies. Jimmy is my favorite character, sad but layered, but I love the complexity of the characters, even most of the villains.
I've been watching The Collector, an angsty and surprisingly emotional '90s sci-fi. The main character, Morgan, breaks my heart every episode, and the storylines are always fascinating.
