I am once again behind on both days and comments, so today is catch up. Doing things around taking care of offline stuff, which is why the separate posts, more than any worry of length.

Day 8: In your own space, share a favorite piece of original canon (a TV episode, a song, a favorite interview, a book, a scene from a movie, etc) and explain why you love it so much.

I've mentioned before that while I love the show Sanctuary, I'm really in it for The Five Show, and not for the modern-day team (though I do love Henry). Then the show went ahead and actually gave me a proper episode of The Five Show.

Normandy is basically my happy place.

I really can't give reasons why except to flail and go FIVE at people, to be honest. I'm just so damn happy to get a full episode of them being, well, them. Tempus has a special place in my heart, especially when it comes to fic ideas, but only gets three of them; the same goes for most of the episodes where Druitt and/or Tesla show up; For King and Country is great, and has one of the greatest scenes (which does not seem to exist on its own as a full clip, but most of which is here), but isn't entirely fixated on the past, and the Worth plotline is not really my favorite to be honest.

Enter Normandy, which is set entirely during World War II and gives us substantial amounts of all five of them, even Nigel. Basically the only way I could love it more is if Nikola was actually hanging out with the rest of them, but we even get a fair bit with him. Plus, his dismissive discussion of why Druitt's playing by his own rules makes me happy, as does his final scene. And then everything else! Secret agent-ing around dealing with Abnormal threats! Banter! Shouting!

...Basically the point is sometimes I'm really easy, and when you give me a set-up like "there's a quintet of supernatural people who have known each other for over a century, were friends earlier before one turned out to be a murderer and the other entirely interested in his own goals, but clearly can't quite stop caring for each other under all the tension, and now after two and a half seasons of teasing around their adventures and never giving a long look into all of them together, we're gonna dive into their past for a full episode", I am there. And will rewatch it until I can recite it by heart.

This has not been a very good sales pitch, but there we are. XD

Also, I would have made this pretty with gifs or clips or something, but uh, I cannot find any, and I've already been writing this for about ten minutes longer than I intended to. I did find the episode on youtube, though, so there's that?
