So last night I watched the pilot for Eastwick (I'd watched the promos mostly because Josh Radnor's g-friend Lindsay Price is in it) I must say I quite enjoyed it! All the three lead actresses are pretty good and their characters are interesting. Lindsay was a pleasant surprise considering I found her character on Lipstick Jungle a bit annoying. She takes on the awkward-shy-reporter character pretty well and her voice isn't half as high-pitched as it used to sound (I know it's boorish of me to not like a person's natural voice but hers used to be pretty grating)
I haven't watched the movie or read the books but the storyline is intriguing and so far not unbelievable (once you give up your hangups about magic being real because, come on, magic TOTALLY exists!)
I also like the visual effects and music. I don't know the exact technical terms for it, but the overall look of the shots is really good to my amateur eye. I fangirled madly when they played Ida Maria's "Oh my God"
. Not only was the song perfect for the context, but it's totally one of Josh Radnor's favorite songs. Coincidentally, when I was on my way to work this morning, this was the first song on my phone when I pressed play in the middle of listening to Your Favourite Music
(which I had paused the evening before)
Talk about Fate, huh? Out of 6 hours of music, I just happened to pick up at the exact song that played on Eastwick. JOSH AND LINDSAY ARE FATED TO BE TOGETHER.

I have thus decreed it. The views of the author are solely based on the belief that the random occurances in her life have a resonating effect on the probabilities of not-so-random occurances in celebrity relationships. Should the aforementioned celebrity couple (heretofore referred to as "Josay") not be fated to spend the rest of their days together, the author reserves the right to place restraining orders on those who point and laugh at her upon demonstration of undeniable proof that Josay are de-coupled.
