Dammit! (But OMG, Mireille and Joel, I LOVE YOU BEAUTIFUL BASTARDS!)

So the first thing I did when I woke up this morning is watch the season 4 premiere of The Killing on Netflix.

Are you shocked?

(You shouldn't be.)

My dilemma now is how to pace this. I will probably take longer than most for a couple of reasons. Number one I normally watch with my mom, which means I'll probably be re-watching the premiere sometime today with her. And second of all she's not a marathon kind of lady. I think she could watch maybe two episodes in the same day, if that. If they were traditional length, maybe three. But these are an hour long and wow, a solid hour of The Killing is like watching regular TV in dog-years. Very emotionally draining, for me personally. And now I need to cut because there's gonna be some spoilers and a little bit of whodunnit speculation. (I'll warn for that at the end if you want to skip it.)

I don't know how many of you actually saw my *redacted* theory post I put up a couple weeks ago. That's the theory I feel most strongly about, and to be perfectly honest, my money's on him hands down for the whole shebang. I don't want to influence anyone, but let's just say I may or may have not also guessed Rosie's killer just before the finale. (HINT: I totally did.)

Anyway, poll time! (?) Putting this under a spoiler cut.

[Poll #1927365]
krickets: (KILLING. we're back here again.)
This week's episode of The Killing.

I actually don't know how to fully respond to this episode.

How.

This show?

HOW?

I just...

Yeah.

Sarsgaard completely broke me when he called "Get off of me," when it was clear that they were going to drag him away rather than let him see his son. Who was mere yards away. The delivery and the agony. I cannot even begin to explain what my insides were doing during that moment and all the moments that followed.

Veena Sud is a complete psychopath. Jesus christ.

I may have to fully react later because this? This is just nonsense.


In other, less depressing news! Fill out this poll:

krickets: (KILLING. hl. gonna get you out.)
Okay, I'm sure you've heard just about enough. But I've got one more theory to run by you.

spoilery things under the cut )
krickets: (KILLING. we're back here again.)
This is my "killer speculation" post. My proper reaction post will be posted directly after this. And here it is.

Spoilers for the reckoning )
krickets: (KILLING. we're back here again.)
So, I loved both The Killing and The Newsroom this week. I wish I could write a proper reaction post to illustrate that but I think about them and end up incoherently muttering the words "Holder/Linden" and "Sloan Sabbith" over and over again.

So I turn it to you, faithful flisties: THOUGHTS?

Oh! And someone made THIS (and subsequently my life):
krickets: (WOLF. jackson. he has no one.)
I need a nap or twenty. Working lots, and I think I'm coming down with something, and today, my only day off, has kind of been a wash as far as "getting things done" goes because of the possible cold I'm getting which had me in bed for a good chunk of the afternoon.

The Killing is on tonight!


Just a couple of hours and then I can get my fix. I didn't get to talk about last week's episode, which I loved, so I'll do that now here: i'll be brief )

I watched the first two episodes of Graceland and if they continue to focus on both characters and case (since procedural is not really my thing) in the way that they are, loyalty to the house and all, I think this will be something I could really love. I described it to [livejournal.com profile] gigglemonster as Spies meets The Real World. Which is oversimplifying it and a half, but as a general premise it totally fits that description. I see they're trying to push "Levi" and Charlie as a ship, but I have a feeling that's going to be a red herring, so-to-speak. Definitely give it a shot if you haven't seen it yet. As [livejournal.com profile] ozmissage pointed out, they're undercover agents with a chore wheel! What's not to like?

Still watching The Fosters. I had a dilemma after the first episode because, while I liked it, I was unsure of whether to proceed because I couldn't really imagine how they could continue to make it interesting. But I watched episode two and then just went all in because I am still somehow charmed by it. Go figure. I like an ABC Family show. Not the biggest shocker in the world.

I started the newest ep of Pretty Little Liars and then got distracted about 3/4ths of the way through because I was cooking and the family came in and commandeered the living room with their talking and their distractions, so I missed the ending. But I have to say that mid-way through the episode, I was having a hard time with it. I'll have to re-watch and reformulate my opinion the next time I get a chance.

Teen Wolf has been back for two episodes but I have completely failed at watching. I want to, I just haven't had a chance. Apparently it's been very good? (Also, I did not know that Colton was leaving, which is probably a good thing because I was unhappy with the direction they took Jackson.)

So I've been thinking of doing this fanfic throwback thing, and writing a bunch of my old pairings and stuff. I haven't decided how to go about that but my big instinct is to write a bunch of 500-1000 word fics (or longer, whatever happens!) and then post them all over a period of a week. Maybe revisit some of my old 'verses in the process. I don't know. I have a list. Maybe I'll work on it!
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.
