[sticky post] Welcome!  
This is a community dedicated to the HBO series "Enlightened" which stars Laura Dern.



'Enlightened' is the new offbeat HBO series written by Mike White and starring Laura Dern as Amy, a self-destructive health and beauty executive who has a very public workplace meltdown. After three months of contemplation and meditation at a treatment center in Hawaii, Amy returns rested and ready to pick up the pieces of her old life and reshape the world she left behind. That includes delivering well-meaning, but generally unwanted advice to her mother Helen (Diane Ladd), with whom Amy is now living; her slacker ex-husband Levi (Luke Wilson) whose only solace comes from recreational drugs; and the crew of awkward co-workers Amy finds herself reassigned to.  The series follows Amy as she navigates an unconventional path between who she is, who she wants to be...and what everyone is willing to tolerate from her.

Your DVD set looks really nice. I don't have a digi-set, it's only in slim cases.

There are a few audio commentaries on the pilot, "The Weekend", "Considering Helen" and the season finale. Not sure if I'm forgetting a commentary. The only other extras are the "Inside the episode"-web-shorts that HBO has on their site after each episode.

I think it would be kinda cool if there was a fan campaign to save Enlightened before it's canned by HBO. Thought about an online petition or something...somehow HBO needs to know that the show has a vocal, passionate and loyal audience.

And it's heartbreaking!

omg there is hope! :')
 مرسي على شفيق: party hardyword_upp on February 2nd, 2013 05:38 am (UTC)
just two commentaries. so lame. i was hoping for some bloopers. it would've been cool to see the bloopers for the elevator scene.
sleepless_ghost: 1sleepless_ghost on February 2nd, 2013 11:09 am (UTC)
What? On your DVD set are only two commentaries? On mine are definitely more?

Also, yes, bloopers would have been great. So I assume the cast on Enlightened is so flawless that they get everything done on the first take and never fuck it up.
 مرسي على شفيق: heheheword_upp on February 7th, 2013 08:54 pm (UTC)
oops, there are definitely more. i'm dumb.

omg is that your eye on your tumblr's icon??? sascha, you look like you would be hot tbh.
sleepless_ghost: 2sleepless_ghost on February 7th, 2013 09:15 pm (UTC)
Nuh, they're easy to overlook!

Yes, that's my eye from 2008 or another year that's long in the past. However, I do look more like a weirdly shaped crocodile monster. In highschool I was even called crocodile for a while.

Do you have only the Enlightened tumblr or another one as well? I'm not much on there, but it would not hurt to follow one more Tumblr.
 مرسي على شفيق: party hardyword_upp on February 12th, 2013 01:25 am (UTC)
kids can be such assholes.

but i would embrace my inner crocodile tbh. no one fucks with a crocodile.

this is my personal tumblr: http://twoheadedshark.tumblr.com/
i don't update as much tho.
sleepless_ghost: 2sleepless_ghost on February 12th, 2013 03:45 pm (UTC)
Indeed. When I was younger, I was trying to fit in with others and made fun of other kids they were making fun of. To this day, even though it has been 10 years since, I still feel ashamed and have a bad conscience about it. :(

Will be following your Tumblr now!
 مرسي على شفيق: heheheword_upp on February 7th, 2013 08:51 pm (UTC)
someone working for tumblr must be an Enlightened fan, because omg, we got featured on the main television and gif tags.
i've always wonder how ppl get on there omg.





like 50 new followers over night. i hope that counts for some PR work!
literally turned my frown upside down tbh.
sleepless_ghost: 1sleepless_ghost on February 7th, 2013 09:10 pm (UTC)
Yeah, the show needs all the support it can get, so it's very pleasing if it's on the main television site on Tumblr. You have done a great job with the TUMBLR!

Not sure how to pimp this community though, but I guess we only have so few members because of the nature of LIVEJOURNAL. The fan communities have been dieing out on here, sadly.


 مرسي على شفيق: party hardyword_upp on February 12th, 2013 01:28 am (UTC)
i think one of my followers works for tumblr and is an enlightened fan, because i got two more gifs featured. and i'm up to 220 followers now. omg. i hope that really gets people to watch the show because the gifs they see on tumblr are so funny and relatable. u know~

are you on ONTD???? that's honestly where all the livejournal people are at. so if you are active on ONTD and make Enlightened posts there, then maybe you can also link this community there???? i know sid used to make enlightened posts on ontd, but i think he's currently moving rn.
sleepless_ghost: 1sleepless_ghost on February 12th, 2013 03:51 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I'm on ONTD. I have made a few posts there over the last year and advertised it in the comments. The community grew a little bit thanks to that advertisement, but I don't think we could ever get 200 members, simply because Livejournal is not "in" the way it used to be.
 مرسي على شفيق: party hardyword_upp on February 12th, 2013 01:50 am (UTC)

omg timm sharp and mike white were in Undeclared together. and this show is on netflix, i think.
ahhhh watching this tbh
sleepless_ghost: 7sleepless_ghost on February 12th, 2013 03:40 pm (UTC)
They look so young. Omg.

I have never seen it.

totes watching this too.

i feel like I'm in a weird cult tho. i can't believe how obsessed i am with mike white and laura dern. jfc.
sleepless_ghost: 1sleepless_ghost on February 12th, 2013 03:40 pm (UTC)
Laura has only a little supporting role in this. She barely makes an impression.

It's a good (and very weird) movie though. Molly Shannon is extremely likeable in it. However, I think it could have been better. Tell me what you thought of it when you saw it.
 مرسي على شفيق: party hardyword_upp on February 13th, 2013 12:45 pm (UTC)
omg it was like a watered down version of enlightened. so many similarities. molly's character was definitely the original Amy Jellicoe.
sleepless_ghost: 14sleepless_ghost on February 13th, 2013 06:02 pm (UTC)
Really, I thought it was really different from Enlightened. But it has been a while since I watched it.
 مرسي على شفيق: Do wop!word_upp on February 23rd, 2013 01:39 am (UTC)
anyone know which episode Louis said "Go away" to Amy???
sleepless_ghost: 2sleepless_ghost on February 23rd, 2013 10:14 am (UTC)
Unfortunately not.

I like your icon. It's so cutesy.Though I now think you are Zooey Deschanel.
 مرسي على شفيق: jsword_upp on March 18th, 2013 12:52 am (UTC)
Mos Def was originally cast in the role of Dougie, Amy's boss; however, he subsequently withdrew from consideration due to a dispute regarding the deal, and the role was recast with Timm Sharp.


omg what





sleepless_ghost: 3sleepless_ghost on March 20th, 2013 09:39 am (UTC)
Yeah, thank the powers that be for Timm Sharp. Didn't like Mos when he was on Dexter.

omg was he the religious guy who got shot or whatever?
sleepless_ghost: 2sleepless_ghost on March 20th, 2013 07:18 pm (UTC)
Yes.
 مرسي على شفيق: Enlightened. Farewell.word_upp on March 20th, 2013 07:19 pm (UTC)
lol i would always fast forward through his parts bc his character was so annoying.
sleepless_ghost: 14sleepless_ghost on March 20th, 2013 07:29 pm (UTC)
That season of Dexter was horrible in general. I wish I had fast forwarded through the entire season. It was such a bore.
 مرسي على شفيق: Enlightened. Farewell.word_upp on March 20th, 2013 07:32 pm (UTC)
lol mte. the last thing i watched was the dooms day killer, but i just completely stopped after that.
sleepless_ghost: pic#120185568sleepless_ghost on March 20th, 2013 07:39 pm (UTC)
I almost did stop too. The season after that was one of the better ones though. However, I'm still kind of over Dexter. Show has gone on for too long.
 مرسي على شفيق: Enlightened. Farewell.word_upp on March 20th, 2013 07:42 pm (UTC)
are there any good German tv shows that u like?
sleepless_ghost: pic#120185568sleepless_ghost on March 20th, 2013 07:57 pm (UTC)
No. Germany only produces crap. It's very depressing.
