A long time ago I did this meme and now I'm going to do it again and see if any of my choices have changed. [livejournal.com profile] ozmissage made me do it back then, so I'm going to blame her again today.

List fifteen (or however many) of your favorite characters from different fandoms and ask people to spot patterns in your choices, if they're so inclined.


Duke Crocker, Haven
Gale Hawthorne, The Hunger Games
Stephen Holder, The Killing
Chon McAlister, Savages & Kings of Cool (books)
Sawyer Ford, Lost (pre-season 5, sorry guys)
Kenzi, Lost Girl
Pacey Witter, Dawson's Creek
Topher Brink, Dollhouse
Nancy Wheeler, Stranger Things
Bay Kennish, Switched at Birth
Max Wagner, Finding Carter (Only finished season 1)
Hanna Marin, Pretty Little Liars
Clayton "Jonesy" Jones, Carnivale
Buffy Summers, Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Veronica Mars, Veronica Mars
Kara Thrace, Battlestar Galactica
Katherine Pierce, The Vampire Diaries
Rayanne Graff, My So-Called Life
Jess Mariano, The Gilmore Girls
Toby Ziegler, The West Wing
Ethan Chandler, Penny Dreadful
Octavia Blake, The 100 (closely tied with her brother!)
Brian Kinney, Queer as Folk

Still couldn't pick anyone off of FNL.

I want in! Give me a fandom (or more than one) and I'll tell you:

Character I'd let hang from a cliff
Character I'd frak or make-out with
Character I'd marry
Character I'd wrap a blanket around
5 favorite characters
3 OTPs
Funniest character
Prettiest character
Most bad-ass character
Character I'd like as my BFF



Decision-making is not my strong suit. Be forewarned.

Hey you guys! Tell me your favorite spooky/Halloween/fall movies & TV episodes. Old black and white movies are a bonus! Anything on Netflix is a bonus! Anything spooky but also funny is a bonus!


I have the TV to myself in the evenings for the next (almost) three weeks while my parents are in Africa and I am so excited for fall/October that it's not funny. I need a primer! And don't hesitate to suggest things you know/suspect I've already seen. I probably forgot about it!

So apparently binge watching more than 1 hour of TV a day will kill you? If the reports are to be believed, the reason scientists are actually blaming TV on early deaths, is that when you're watching TV apparently something inside your brain goes screwy and your metabolic rate is lowered more while sitting and watching TV than during any other sitting activities, including doing nothing at all. What about reading? What about listening to audiobooks, podcasts, or music? I'm going to have to look into this further. What if I'm watching TV while brushing my teeth (or packing my lunch) on my smart phone? What if I'm using Netflix to listen to the audio of episodes of The West Wing on my commute every morning? (Hypothetically speaking!) I'm going to have to look into this.

If any good can come of this, it might help to make commercials illegal, because the extra 17 minutes per hour of live television is literally going to kill us! (One commercial break at a time.)

Old Movies
I've decided to start watching a bunch of old movies that I've never seen before because when else am I going to watch them? I started with North by Northwest, a random Abott and Costello (Cause I'd never seen one), and Singin' in the Rain (OMG, so good! Definitely my favorite so far), totally obscure thing called Dr. Renault's Secret, and I have a ton more on my Netflix queue, plus I've been going to the local library to raid their shelves. That's where I got Dr. Renault's Secret. This week I picked up Shop Around the Corner, And Then There Were None, and All the President's Men, which is a little more modern than most of the stuff I've been watching so far, but it still fits! I am really enjoying myself. I kind of love old movies, which I sort of already knew, but I never went out of my way to watch all the old classics (and the not-so-classics). Anybody got a favorite old movie I should definitely put on my list?

Etc.
Speaking of movies. I really wanna head to the theater to see Frankenweenie. There are several others that I want to see too, Looper being one of them. I need to do that this week or something. Except I am broke and probably can't afford to.

New Shows
I have not watched any of the new shows except The New Normal cause mom wanted to watch it. (Meh.) I really really want to watch Nashville though even though I feel like for some reason I shouldn't want to? I can't help it, it looks good and I love Connie Britton. Someone tell me which new shows are or are not worth checking out. Visual persuasion is welcome.

Returning Shows
I kind of suck because I have been going to bed between 8 and 9:30 on weeknights (and sometimes on weekends, too) and so watching prime time TV has become somewhat of a challenge for me. But so far I've seen:

- Revenge: Just the first episode back, but I loved it. Mildly-spoilery reaction is that I'm tickled pink that Nolan is moving in with Em. The end.
- Parenthood: Everything. This show is perfect in ways that most people just don't know because they don't watch. And that's a shame. I don't think I'll be missing any eps of this one. Also? Ray Romano is awesome, and that's a sentence I never ever thought I would utter... or type. Perfect show is perfect.
- Grey's Anatomy: Alex and Arizona. Is that the shipper goggles talking? Yes. But still. THE ANGST.
- Haven: I missed the 2nd episode back, but last Friday's ep slayed me. Duke. He will always and forever be my favorite.
- Switched at Birth: I've missed a few episodes, but can I just say that this line (paraphrase?): "Regina's not a friend. She's family." Just blew me away. John and Kathryn used to refer to Regina as "That woman!" This is so much better.
- Hart of Dixie: Lemon Breeland ♥! She was great in this ep. I feel kinda vindicated for liking her so much last season. I loved that line "That seems like a mindless domestic task. Right up my alley!" Dripping with sarcasm. Good for her. Also, her working at the Rammer Jammer gives me all kinds of Wade/Lemon vibes, which, truth be told was and is a closet ship of mine. I could definitely be into it.

100 Things

{Take the 100 Things challenge!}


So I guess I'm going to do this? I picked "100 Episodes Re-Watched" for my theme and the plan is to pick some of my favorites and post some pics + a short blurb about the show, or just the experience of re-watching it? I don't know. I've never done this before!
krickets: (Default)
I invented a new word over at [livejournal.com profile] daybreak777's journal.

Netflixed = Inexplicably compelled to marathon a show (or watch a movie) just because you discover it's available on Netflix streaming. (Alternatively, this can refer to simply the act of watching something from/on netflix, but that's boring. This is better.)

Used in a sentence:
"I thought I would hate *insert name of show*, but I got netflixed."
"I couldn't stop watching old episodes of Roseanne last weekend. Netflixed, again!"


Examples:
Parks & Rec
Terriers (Although, that was more a long-awaited continuation.)
Switched at Birth (YES, It's true.)
krickets: (Default)


Okay, so this makes me want to watch this show again. Damn those crafty editors! Who wants to tell me what happened in S3? I quit watching after the 4th episode. (I fail, I know.)

The end of stuff.

Community. I don't know. I just don't know. I enjoyed the two part finale kinda but I feel like overall my feelings on this season are so underwhelming that it's hard for me to even care. I feel like this has the potential to become something I don't watch regularly, but at the same time, I don't feel strongly enough about that to remove it from the DVR entirely.

Modern Family. Love those Dunphy-Pritchett-Tucker-Delgados! Yes! But has my enthusiasm waned? Yes. I can't explain why but I don't get excited for this show anymore. And yet I still love it when I do watch it. But I frequently miss several episodes in a row without even realizing it and mostly that's just because I don't even remember that it's on. The show isn't doing anything wrong, but I don't know. It's more like "old reliable" instead of "this exciting thing that I can't wait for!" That probably makes very little sense. Just go with it.

Off the Map. Well, that got canceled. That sucks. Since it was just a mid-season replacement I'm not so totally bummed about losing it, but it would have been nice to see how it did a little further along. Oh well, them's the breaks.

The Vampire Diaries. You're all aware that this is my new "main" fandom. While I have some powerful "multi-fandom" tendencies, there are always things that inspire me more than others in terms of making art or writing fic or gee, I dunno, stalking the cast on twitter, etc. And this is one of them, which took nobody more by surprise than me. I figured out that I started watching this show after the first few eps of the second season. Right around Bad Moon Rising, 2.03 -- I have no idea how long it took me to catch up. I'm guessing a couple of weeks, but it's kind of been this massive downhill slide into obsession from there. And I'm only mentioning this here because I've already talked about the finale. I pretty much agree with about 80-85% of what [livejournal.com profile] ozmissage said in her finale recap, and she said it far better than I did, so go read that if you have the chance.

Parenthood. This show is so under-rated. I can't believe how under-rated it is. There are times when the storylines are not my favorite, but the writing on this show is so superb and real and you see scenes on this show that I don't know if I've ever seen before, and yet they're so completely simple. Not everything on this show is as affecting, but some of it just blows me away with it subtle power. And I'm so so glad it was renewed for a third season. Here's one of my favorite parts of the finale:

"Amber, you know, I was two years in Vietnam. Do you know what I thought about? What I dreamt about? Coming home and having a family and having grandkids. I dreamt you, Amber. And Haddie, and Drew, and Sydney, Jabbar, and Max. And we almost lost you. I know, you've had some bad breaks. You're not feeling good about yourself. You didn't get into Berkeley? Well, boo-friggin-hoo. You gotta suck it up, girl. You're a Braverman. You got my blood in your veins. You ever do something like this again, you even think about doing something like this, I will personally kick your little butt all the way from here to the Golden Gate Bridge. You do not have my permission to mess with my dreams. Are we clear?"

Happy Endings. I don't know how much of this show is left to air? Maybe one episode? But this was such an unexpected delight! Seriously? How awesome is this show? I can't say they'll work that same awesome groove next season, but right now it is on fire. (Though the last two eps were definitely aired out of order, yes?)

Grey's Anatomy. I... I don't know with this show. I hate to hope for anything with it because the characters I want to see fleshed out never really are. And I'm looking at you Lexie Grey. (No really, she has so many things going on every season that it feels like they just scratch the surface and we don't really get to see what's underneath.) But I guess there's one thing. And this is kind of spoilery. )

I feel like there are so many characters on this show that half of them just spend the vast majority of the time hanging out in the background, having these lives that we really know very little about. I mean, watching people brush their teeth together is one thing, but actual development is something else. I am kind of bummed that we are not getting that for some of these characters. The cast has grown so much and I feel like, even though I enjoy some of the new faces, that it's a detriment to the show in the end. I mean, I'm super stoked that "Noel" finally got the girl and all, but I would have liked to see that develop more. But with this show, that just doesn't seem possible anymore.

The Killing. I'm behind! again! I do this every week and it's not because I'm not interested. Really. It's just because I don't get the TV on the weekends and then I have to make myself remember to download the show and watch it. I need a personal assistant just to keep track of my television schedule during the regular season. I swear.

Summer shows! Summer is such a slow time for me TV-wise. I'm looking forward to Haven, True Blood, Entourage, and The Glades (off the top of my head) but I'm not jumping out of my seat for joy or anything. I think that may change from ep to ep with both True Blood and Haven though. (Both of the genre pieces, go figure.) But both Lost Girl and Misfits aren't coming back until the fall, so it'll be a relatively quiet summer I guess. Though I may be re-watching Veronica Mars again to make a vid, and The Vampire Diaries just cause, and I hope to knock out the next season or two of The West Wing as well. So there's that. Plus, I may finally give Castle a try (since a friend let me borrow the season one DVD I got them for Christmas) and finally mainline Six Feet Under like I've been meaning to. (At least season one. It's taunting me from my DVD shelf.) "The show where no one smiles" is what I used to nickname it back when my mom watched when it was still on the air.

☂ Does anybody else know what else I watch/am watching? I can't think of anything else. This is what happens when you make long lists.

Ugh, upfronts. I was going to skate by and not watch anything new, and I'll be keeping an eye on Ringer and The Secret Circle, but some of the other stuff actually looks good! Just from NBC's lineup:


Awake
coming to NBC

This looks really interesting. And it cheats by using one of my favorite songs. But still. I think I will definitely watch that pilot.


Bent
starring Amanda Peet
coming to NBC

Look, I have no frame of reference if this TV show looks good or not. But I totally love me some Amanda Peet! I'm doomed! [This means I'll watch the pilot in the very least.]

I'm not totally sure how I feel about Grimm. The rest of them? Meh.

Random observation:
So many shows that I was watching have ended in the past year and a half.
Lost, Ugly Betty, Battlestar Galactica, Harper's Island, Stargate: Atlantis, Eastwick, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Pushing Daisies, Dollhouse.

That's a lot of shows. It's so weird to me to file Lost in that imaginary "past" column in my brain. So weird. Plus all of that? I feel so bereft. It's kind of depressing. More than kind of.

*ponders the meaning of life*

→ On a more depressing indie movie note, Winter's Bone looks really good:


→ Watched the live show and Mumford and Sons was amazing at Bonnaroo today. Amazing. God, I love that band.

→ I've been watching Legend of the Seeker for the past two weeks and am finally all caught up. Though I did just find out there's two weeks until the next episode so that's a bummer. I should have watched the episodes a little more slowly. Anyway, I would definitely recommend it. I'm going to have to get some icons or something. Haven't really joined the fandom yet due to trying to avoid spoilers. And here's a pretty, pretty picspam of the opening scene of the pilot by [livejournal.com profile] ohvienna.

→ Lost, lost, lost. I am lost. And, is this a spoiler? Despite the presence of two of my favorite people, I really hated the last episode. Exponentially. I am so, so tired of this season I could puke. At this point, I am only watching out of habit/fandom/personal obligations. The little things that annoy me don't just go away because a new episode airs. They only serve to annoy me more as time goes on. In short: Dear Lost Writers, if you can't add/subtract/tell time, try to avoid writing about time travel, dumbasses.

→ I watched Harper's Island last night. I really like the idea of a self-contained single season. Plus I figured I would enjoy the mystery novel "who-dun-it" premise. It served that purpose. Like I told [livejournal.com profile] sol_se, I wasn't expecting brilliant, just murder-mystery fun. I'll watch again next week. I'm looking forward to the characters' awareness that something is awry. Things will probably get a lot more interesting once the panic sets in.

→ There were a lot of premieres this week for being April, weren't there? I didn't watch Southland or The Unusuals. Though both look pretty decent actually. I read a review that said they blank out swear-words on Southland. Hah. I wonder if the DVDs will have the un-bleeped version?

→ Did I mention I also finished this season of Big Love? Well I did, and I loved it. I really liked Come, Ye Saints especially. The scene in the back of the car with Wayne and Raymond, hilarious. It's about time they gave those kids something to do. But yeah, this show just gets better and better. When is season four? Soon, I hope. /wishful thinking.

→ I am still not caught up with Friday Night Lights. I have no idea why. Maybe I will wait for the DVDs to get caught up. I heard it's been renewed again. My thoughts on that are mixed. and contain casting spoilers )

→ I've been watching Legend of the Seeker for the past two weeks and am finally all caught up. Though I did just find out there's two weeks until the next episode so that's a bummer. I should have watched the episodes a little more slowly. Anyway, I would definitely recommend it. I'm going to have to get some icons or something. Haven't really joined the fandom yet due to trying to avoid spoilers. And here's a pretty, pretty picspam of the opening scene of the pilot by [livejournal.com profile] ohvienna.

→ Lost, lost, lost. I am lost. And, is this a spoiler? Despite the presence of two of my favorite people, I really hated the last episode. Exponentially. I am so, so tired of this season I could puke. At this point, I am only watching out of habit/fandom/personal obligations. The little things that annoy me don't just go away because a new episode airs. They only serve to annoy me more as time goes on. In short: Dear Lost Writers, if you can't add/subtract/tell time, try to avoid writing about time travel, dumbasses.

→ I watched Harper's Island last night. I really like the idea of a self-contained single season. Plus I figured I would enjoy the mystery novel "who-dun-it" premise. It served that purpose. Like I told [livejournal.com profile] sol_se, I wasn't expecting brilliant, just murder-mystery fun. I'll watch again next week. I'm looking forward to the characters' awareness that something is awry. Things will probably get a lot more interesting once the panic sets in.

→ There were a lot of premieres this week for being April, weren't there? I didn't watch Southland or The Unusuals. Though both look pretty decent actually. I read a review that said they blank out swear-words on Southland. Hah. I wonder if the DVDs will have the un-bleeped version?

→ Did I mention I also finished this season of Big Love? Well I did, and I loved it. I really liked Come, Ye Saints especially. The scene in the back of the car with Wayne and Raymond, hilarious. It's about time they gave those kids something to do. But yeah, this show just gets better and better. When is season four? Soon, I hope. /wishful thinking.

→ I am still not caught up with Friday Night Lights. I have no idea why. Maybe I will wait for the DVDs to get caught up. I heard it's been renewed again. My thoughts on that are mixed. and contain casting spoilers )
