Gonna talk vaguely about Riverdale, Switched at Birth, and Grey's Anatomy in this post. I'll cut anything that might be spoilery.

Anybody watch the pilot of Riverdale? I got PLL vibes in a way. I have many theories and most of them revolve around the Cooper family. It's like the Archie comics meets Twin Peaks kinda.

Switched at Birth finally came back. I thought they were going to cancel it on the worst cliffhanger, but they gave it a final 10 episodes to wrap-up thankfully. Although it's still just as cheesy as ever, I was glad to see these big dumb characters again. Somehow, even while they're trying to making him sympathetic, I'm still "so totally done" with Emmett. They've ruined his character for me. And it drives me crazy how Bay is swayed by it. I'm not supposed to see him as manipulative because he's depressed, but he still feels so emotionally manipulative and very childish/selfish. With Bay, his mom, Travis and Daphne. Every single person in his life that matters to him. I'm going to be so upset if the writers intend to pair him up with either Bay or Daphne (if she and Mingo don't work out, which... they better! It's the only Daphne related pairing that I've remotely liked since Wilke)! Travis is also acting a bit childish, but the idea that they can't fit 3 people in that gigantic apartment is completely ridiculous, so I kind of understand. Plus, while he could have acted like less of a baby about it, he's not exactly wrong. Bay is making the decision because of stupid Emmett, lol. It's so silly how much Emmett annoys me now when I liked him so much in the first couple of seasons. But I can't help it. He just drives me bonkers.


Did anybody watch Grey's last week? I knew I recognized this week's patient but I was really shocked to discover that she's the girl who played Taylor on Finding Carter. I always thought she was one of the weaker cast members on that show, but she did a really good job in the Grey's episode. And I BARELY recognized her. I knew I knew her but when I realized from where I was completely blown away that it was the same girl. I still haven't finished Finding Carter by the way, even though I really liked it. I need to finish it soon!

I wasn't planning to watch Riverdale, but it's on Netflix here and thus theoretically "free" so I'm going to check it out now. I might wait a while and then marathon it.

I'm cautiously optimistic that it could be pretty fun. Especially with the mystery aspect of it. Also, HELLO! Glad to see you around here!

Thanks! :-D I'm between fandoms at the moment, but I read LJ every day.

What fandoms have you been into lately? I wish I could get into fandom more, but it's so hard with life and everything. I wish I could just have ONE job and then like... free time afterward? But apparently that is not in the cards for me. I work SO MUCH.

I like iZombie and Shadowhunters a lot, though I'm not really inspired enough to write fic (yet?). I'm also waiting for the end of Shadowhunters S2 to marathon it. I also like From Dusk Till Dawn and Orphan Black, though I'm not caught up. Still and will probably always love Supernatural. Class, the Doctor Who spin-off was pretty good, and I also love Doctor Who. Otherwise, I'm watching a lot sitcoms at the moment, mainly for comfort, I think - New Girl, B99, Fresh Off the Boat, Modern Family, Black-ish, TBBT, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Grace and Frankie - and, embarassingly, I'm currently marathoning Full House, which I loathed without watching during its original run, and now I bizarrely can't get enough of it.

What I'm really into the moment is podcasts, mainly true crime, comedy and scifi/fantasty/horror fiction.
