Enjoy!
krickets: (KILLING. we're back here again.)
[livejournal.com profile] ozmissage gave me this meme after lengthy discussions about "what our shipping and character preference say about us." This one's just about characters, maybe I'll alter it and do a "pairings" one later.

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.

Not a comprehensive list, more of a sampling.
Duke Crocker, Haven
Gale Hawthorne, The Hunger Games (books)
Stephen Holder, The Killing
Chon McAlister, Savages & Kings of Cool (books)
Sawyer Ford, Lost (pre-season 5, sorry guys)
Kenzi, Lost Girl (picking only one from this fandom was hard... because Tamsin!)
Pacey Witter, Dawson's Creek
Felix, Orphan Black
Topher Brink, Dollhouse
Hanna Marin, Pretty Little Liars
Fiona Gallagher, Shameless US (also a hard choice! because Karen! And Lip! But mostly Karen.)
Clayton "Jonesy" Jones, Carnivale
Brad Colbert, Generation Kill
Buffy Summers, Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Veronica Mars, Veronica Mars
Kara Thrace, Battlestar Galactica
Katherine Pierce, The Vampire Diaries
Cristina Yang, Grey's Anatomy
Brian Kinney, Queer as Folk US
Malcolm Reynolds, Firefly

For the record, there were certain fandoms *cough*FridayNightLights*cough* that I just couldn't pick one favorite character. It was just too cruel.

SHIP OF MY HEART.

Under the cut there's gonna be (possibly incredibly vague) spoilers for the current seasons of:
Lost Girl
The Carrie Diaries
Grey's Anatomy
Pretty Little Liars
The Vampire Diaries
Shameless (US)

this is why I don't watch tv -- strike that; reverse it )

Okay that's as far as I could get tonight. I think I did pretty good considering my utter lack of posting show reactions as of late.

Amy, Tina, I let you guys down and I recognize that. I'll do better next time
krickets: (GREYS. cristina. examine.)
→ Okay so I forgot about one of my comedies. That comedy is Parks and Rec. I watched the finale and can I just say that Leslie is so perfect. And Billy has been so hilarious. He's so clueless (omg not that again!). I kind of want his character to come back next season. I hope that's a thing that's happening. I am a little "meh" on a couple of the other storylines. (Ann Perkins, I'm looking at you girlfriend.) But overall it was another great season.

→ I still have yet to watch Revenge this week and I hear it's a doozie. It needs to be after that boring-as-fuck flashback episode. I was not impressed or moved or any of the things I was supposed to be. Sorry, show. Still weirdly addicted to Nolan Ross this show, and I am curious to see how it all unravels. (And what the hell a second season is going to look like, to be honest.)

→ PAST-TENSE THINGS I HAVEN'T FINISHED: I need to start catching up with Lost Girl now that season 2 is airing in the US. I never did finish it and since I love it (And Kenzi!!!!, and Dyson!!!!, and Bo, and Hale... but NOT LAUREN) that makes little to no sense. That is nonsensical! Did I tell anyone that I never finished Shameless season 2? I feel really terrible about this since I love those Gallaghers so damn much but Frank was kind of ruining things for me and I just couldn't anymore. I will catch up I promise. It just might take me a little while.

The Vampire Diaries: Who am I kidding? The finale is getting its own post. At a later date. ETA: And Hart of Dixie as well.

Grey's Anatomy. The unspoilery part of my review was that the finale was anti-climactic and despite all evidence to the contrary didn't even feel like a season finale. now for the rest )

I wish I was watching this shit right now:

→ Just watched Another Earth. Gorgeous. And it made me cry several times. Loved Brit Marling, and William Mapother was pretty fantastic in it. I enjoy indie dramas because you get the chance to see people in roles they wouldn't necessarily be in. I like seeing the actors get to work with unique and thought-provoking material. With exceptions, this is not what movies are generally about - and it really isn't for everyone. The script was fantastic and broke my heart on several occasions. I appreciated that it did feel like something was actually happening in addition to all of the pathos. The movie Rabbit Hole had similar plot elements to this, right up to the idea of alternate universes and alternate selves. I enjoyed both. God, I miss being a movie nerd.

So, the cosmonaut. He's the first man ever to go into space, right? The Russians beat the Americans. So he goes up in this big space ship, but the only habitable part of it's very small. So the cosmonaut's in there, and he's got this portal window, and he's looking out of it, and he sees the curvature of the earth. For the first time. The first man to ever look at the planet he's from. And he's lost in that moment. And all of a sudden, this strange ticking begins coming out of the dashboard. He rips out the control panel, right? Takes out his tools, trying to find this sound -- trying to stop this sound. But he can't find it. He can't stop it. It keeps going. A few hours into this, it begins to feel like torture. A few days go by with this sound and he knows that this small sound will break him. He'll lose his mind. What's he going to do? He's up in space. Alone. In a space closet! He's got twenty-five days left to go with this sound. So the cosmonaut decides: the only way to save his sanity is to fall in love with this sound. So he closes his eyes and he goes into his imagination, and then he opens them. He doesn't hear a ticking anymore. He hears music. And he spends the remainder of his time sailing through space in total bliss and peace.


→ I have not actually had much to say lately. People (lovely lovely amazing people) wrote me fic and everything and I've just been off in la la land. Lurking and reading books and making shameless vids.

→ Misfits is back. (Yay!) Lost Girl is back. (Not even interested in watching this based on reviews I've read.) And I'm still behind on a lot of TV from last week. Fail boat.

→ I am reading Mindy Kaling's book, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) and so far I'm enjoying her tone but I'm barely into it so I can't say much more than that.

→ I love you and I miss you!
krickets: (HARPERS. if it kills us;)
Grey's Anatomy: Meh. I was suprisingly unengaged with the openers which is funny because their openers are often very good. speculation )

Modern Family: *\o/* That is all. (Perfect show is perfect.)

Community: So I watched this. I still like John Goodman. I am mostly whatever with this.

Parks & Recreation: It was awesome. What can I say?

Parenthood: I love this show but it's not getting off to the strongest start. Still one of the most underrated dramas on TV right now.

Haven: I'm an episode behind again. As usual. I love Duke even when Duke's being a dick. That's my story.

Lost Girl: An episode behind again! I'm catching up today before tonight's episode. Does anybody know where you can stream Showcase live? I've done that with Misfits on E4. I would be down with that.

Lost Girl! I was going to go to bed but I thought I'd post a quick episode reaction.

Outside of a cut though? Holy macaroni and cheese I missed this show! And yay for 22 episodes!

2.01, Something Wicked This Fae Comes )

Tongue Tied, Iwan Rheon

I have too much to talk about. Two new shows I've been watching lately are Misfits and Lost Girl and I'm really loving both of them and I want to talk about them but I feel so weird talking about a show as a whole instead of episode reviews, but I will just have to try because I feel like I haven't been sharing things with you guys and that's unfair and uncool. *nods*

misfits up to 2.05 )

ETA, cause I can:

No idea who made this unfortunately.

...Lost Girl later!
