krickets: (WOLF. lydia. smarter than the rest.)
Basically the only thing keeping me watching this show for a very long time (the past two seasons at least) is how much I ship these assholes:

I know. I know. I'm not right and I'm setting myself up for disappointment. But at this point, being a person who apparently still watches this show despite everything, I am not really in a position to care. About either point. I can't help myself.

→ I need to talk about things. I've been a bad flister lately I think. I feel like part of it is having two jobs now and less time. And the other part of it is just random not-posting-fun-things-for-no-reason. I apologize, please forgive me.

→ Anybody remember last year when I was doing that cute animal poll and then I totally forgot about it? Yeah, me either.

→ I just want to say hello to everyone attending Vividcon this year. I know you all will enjoy it and personally I am just excited for the new vids to start cropping up! Yay for new vids.

→ I keep thinking about how there's so much TV starting back/starting anew this fall and my brain starts to leak out of my ears. I have no idea how I'm going to watch everything I want to watch. It's not going to be easy, but by gosh I'll give it a try! One show I'm looking forward to that I've heard pretty much nobody talking about is called Whitney. It's a comedy and it's coming on NBC (don't quote me on that) -- it looks pretty clever. I'm also super excited to see The Beek playing himself in Apartment 23 at mid-season. I have no idea why this excites me so much, but I have this weird sort of love for him now. I blame twitter. (And those GIFs from last year.)

→ True Blood? What can I say, I haven't truly watched it since the second episode of the season. I have skimmed through all the rest. Basically I am aware of what's happening with Jason, Jessica, Bill (sorta), Sookie (sorta)... and everyone else I have only paused long enough to get bits and pieces. *shrug* I may or may not legitimately catch up eventually. Currently it's leaning toward not. We'll see!

→ Haven! I haven't watched last week's yet, but it's still filling that Haven-size hole in my TV scheduling. It's a simple show and I enjoy it. Duke is still my favorite. The end.

→ The Glades. Meh. I have no idea what their ratings are like but I'll be surprised if they're renewed for a third season. It's just not as fun as it was last season. I really wish they'd delve a little deeper. I want to keep loving it because I actually do have an affection for these characters, but it's kind of hard when they don't put any real effort into being something more than open and shut case of the week.

→ Entourage! (Look! I am excited!) I am a little perplexed by the fact that A) I ever watched this show in the first place, let alone from the start, B) The characters are so well-defined C) It's been on so long, D) It's ending, and E) That this season is turning out to be so darn good! I could do without certain recurring guest stars, but overall I am just enamored with this show again and I feel like by the time it's over that I won't ever want it to end.

→ Parks & Rec. Finally watched it (am still watching it). Skipped the entire first season which was nearly physically painful for me. I am such a completist and it goes against my entire tv-watching nature. But I was doing this whole "let me watch everything I can on netflix if they're going to overcharge my ass." And it sort of happened and now.. I'm just a few episodes away from the season 3 finale. And I've enjoyed myself. Imagine that.

→ LUTHER. This show has a serious problem with creepy killers who target women in the most fucked up, brutal, creepy way possible. Enough with that already. But aside from that, I'm loving this show. It's so dark and twisty and has a great cast and good writing and Idris Elba, who has more screen presence than you can shake a stick at. (Ruth Wilson too.) Good show. Watch it.

→ Hi new friends!

→ I think I'm done for now.

True Blood 4.01
What I liked about this episode )
krickets: (Default)
The Glades: Okay, I take back what I said. I really liked this episode. Ray seems too good to be true, to be honest. But I hope they don't make their jobs easier by villainizing him later. Good episode.

The Killing: I have loved the last two episodes. This one was so great and revealy and shocking and ripe with awesome guest stars, etc. But episode eleven was really a standout for me. It was kind of a bottle episode in that it was just the two lead detectives dealing with each other in a way they really hadn't before. I actually cried twice watching this. Holder's phone call? Oh god, I was in tears. The slow build of this show is really paying off. I have a feeling we've been red herringed though. (That's a verb right?) Can't wait to see what really happens.

So You Think You Can Dance: I'm trying this show again. I have never watched a full season of this show. I watched a lot of (Season four?) the one with Katee and Joshua, and attempted to watch the one after that but kind of ended up hating it. [I also watched a bit of the last season -- with that killer Alex & Twitch routine.] I haven't decided yet whether or not I like this group enough to keep me interested. We'll see who they're all paired up with this week. I still think this show is top quality when it comes to reality competitions. First Kat Deeley is the best host ever and she deserves all the awards. Second, the judges are truly schooled in dance and really love this craft and are (generally) incredibly qualified and useful. They're not just there for snark and entertainment sake. [Well, maybe Mary Murphy and L'il C, haha.] And third, the competitors are true artists. It's not quite the same to be a passable singer as it is to be a gifted and versatile dancer. Not on this show anyway. These people have worked their asses off, many of them for their entire lives, to get to the level that they're at. And like Nigel said, the audience doesn't just vote for the guys by default. So I appreciate all of those things about this show -- and I hope that this season I can stick around and enjoy the show.

TRUE BLOOD: So the first 8 minutes are online and I think I speak for us all when I say, "What in the ever-loving fuck was that?"

→ So, I think I kind of have a new show. Observe:

[source.]
It's called Haven and it's on SyFy and that's Eric Balfour & Emily Rose, two of its stars. Duke and Audrey, respectively. It's pretty much... a SyFy show, but I am still digging it.

→ True Blood this season is much better than last season I think. By the end of last season I was pretty much ready to give it all up. I'm a bit disappointed in a couple of minor things book-related. like... ) And it will always be that show where at the end of it I say to myself "what the fuck just happened there?" But I suppose that's part of its charm. Also charming? ) And yeah, that's pretty much all I have to say. Still watching, and it's still as batshit crazy as ever. The end.

→ I watched the first two eps of Eureka season four even though I'd never seen a single episode before. Why? James motherfrakkin' Callis, ladies and gentlemen. I do have a soft spot for the man and I just couldn't help myself. Now I am wanting to catch up with the whole series so I can consume season four as fast as possible. The way the stories are told and production-wise it reminds me a lot of Stargate: Atlantis actually. I'm looking forward to that.

→ Huge. I watched the first two eps of this show and liked it enough to continue, but I keep missing it! I will have more to say when I've caught up. I pretty much like everyone except for that main character. Normally, not a good sign. But I'm willing to persist.

→ I may be the only other human being I know that still watches this show, but I am really liking Entourage this season. In terms of in depth storytelling, they've never exactly been the greatest. But in terms of entertainment and character continuity and random crap that makes you laugh? They are king. mini spoilers? sorry! ) What could be better?

→ Persons Unknown. Still watching. Still enjoying. It keeps throwing curveballs at me, actually and I have no idea what's going to happen next. I kind of wish they'd do more character stuff because those moments when they've gone there have been the best ones in my opinion. But whatever, they can do what they want. I'll still probably watch until the end. It's a mini-series, might as well.

→ I heard there's a new preview for Sons of Anarchy that kicks ass. Someone link me?

→ On a non-tv related note, I have some music I want to share but I'll do that later.

→ lost squee luau. currently kicking my ass. *gasps for air*

I'm pretty notorious for having the least popular opinions you can have in fandom. I'm not sure why. And it's not as though I'm trying, it just is, you know? It would be far easier for me if this weren't the case. I am this way because Jacob made me this way, by the way.

PROOF


→ I can't bring myself to write and [generally] don't desire to read 80-90% of canon pairings. It's a disease. Which may or may not be contagious. *coughs on you*

I can't help it that I chronically multi-ship. My motto? Make me believe. That is all I ask. [I'm not sure if that part is terribly unpopular.]

→ [I often still enjoy the canon representations of the pairings that I don't read/write in fic.]

→ We've discussed my relationship with Juliet from Lost, yes? Everyone loves her. Me, not so much. [I also had major issues with Charlie, Ben, and Locke.]

→ The same goes for Eric from True Blood. And the Sookie Stackhouse book series. And I'm on book four. I'm pretty sure he's the most popular character next to Sookie herself.

→ Everyone seems to be really liking Glee. Whereas I watched the first half-hour the other day and quit halfway through, call it lack of sleep mixed with lack of interest. Maybe the 2nd half makes up for it?

→ If my phone hadn't died I'd still be voting for Kris Allen. Have I mentioned I don't actually watch the show?

→ I prefer Ronon/Sheppard to McShep. [But I still like McShep!]

→ Misha Collins kind of gives me the heebs. Fine, I said it! [Feel free to use icons of him when you respond to this post, Dayl.]

→ I am sure there's more I can't think of at the moment. How does one pick examples from their perpetual state of being? It all just runs together. I'm damn contrary, okay?

→ I loved last night's True Blood. I'm sure I could comment more. And I'm sure there were some things I didn't like, but for the most part? That was awesome. As usual. They cram so much into one episode it's crazy. Two really quick things: bill's girl + admiral cain ) I know that's not much but, what can I say? I'm a minimalist.

a rant about wednesday... so-to-speak ) Don't hate me because I'm intolerant of other people's week day preferences, okay? It's how I was brought up. It's not my fault. Friday is best, Wednesday forces me choke back the vomit. It's genetic. It's a very serious illness.

→ I was going to talk about a certain BSG spoiler (not plotty) but I think the cat is already out of the bag on that one. And I'm usually a spoiler-phobe when it comes to BSG so I'm surprised I even read it myself.

→ I had butter tarts for the first time yesterday. My parents brought them back from Ottawa. Mmm, good. Now I understand why you Canadians are such a nice and friendly bunch. It's the butter tarts!

→ I finished almost all of my Christmas shopping this morning. But I cheated and I shopped online. And only 2 items were of the DVD/CD variety. I'm truly proud. I have some final things to get, grandma and friends online, but the majority of it is done! And I think everyone is going to love what I got them, which is a really great feeling. Wee! Christmas!

[livejournal.com profile] bob_radar posted another of her (awesome) vidding discussions. This one is about lyrics and literalism and really made me think. (Also? She is amazing for hosting and writing up these thoughtful discussions. More vidding meta is always good!)

→ In the midst of the two short lj outages this week. I discovered a geektastically useful site: Is it down for everyone, or just me? If I had a penny for every time I'd asked myself that question I'd need a bigger piggy bank!

→ The [livejournal.com profile] bsg_slashathon was a raging success. (Forty-nine fics! My word!) And here's the round up post for those of you not watching the comm. There's a ton of great stuff over there to r&r!

→ The other night while watching True Blood, there was scene where one character eats pancakes. (At least they looked like pancakes to me, they called them something else.) So, in the middle of the night, I went downstairs and made pancakes from scratch. I seriously need to learn to control these kinds of impulses. (It doesn't help that the buffer was stuck on that scene for ages. I couldn't help myself!)

→ I'm addicted to fivethirtyeight.com! There's like a week until the elections and I've got ants in my pants. I want it over already. Not knowing is pure torture.

→ There have been so many great vids posted lately in connection with [livejournal.com profile] vidukon. Everyone should head on over to the comm to check 'em out. Lots of sensational vid shows to plow through as well.

→ I recently watched the best Claire (LOST) character study I've ever seen. It's called My Skin and is by FadingSpark of YT and LVI. So many Claire vids tie her inextricably with Charlie, or are AU relationship centric (Desmond, Sawyer, Locke, Ethan, KATE, you name it.) But this is the first vid that I have seen that's ever done real justice to the character and all that she's been through. I'm trying to get my hands on a downloadable copy, but for now I'll have to settle for watching it on youtube. FadingSpark has done a number of Claire vids, and from viewing My Skin you can tell she really and truly loves the character.

I'll link you to another vid of hers that I especially liked called Evening on the Ground it's Jack/Claire (that way, sort of?) and I love the song. She's done others for them as well.

→ Feeling okay this morning. I should have set my alarm to get up on time so I could make up some hours at work. Fooey.

→ I wanted to review the first two episodes of Pushing Daisies and Friday Night Lights, but that's like... four? whole episodes, and I'm way too lazy for that, so here's a brief bit of... squee, if you will.

If you think about it, these shows fall on opposite ends of the spectrum. One is high fantasy, very fairy-tale like, and one is very grim and reality-based. (Even moreso than regular dramas, if you watch it, you know what I mean.) But what they have in common is that both of them are gloriously executed. I don't think there is a night on TV right now that surpasses Wednesday in terms of the awesomeness and quality that comprises these two shows. They make me happy. They make me feel. Basically what I'm saying is... Yay! Pushing Daisies and Friday Night Lights! For fitting as much awesome as humanly possible into one hour of TV. Thank you, Thank you.

[livejournal.com profile] zelda_zee called my attention to this meta by [livejournal.com profile] xparrot which is about different fannish types and how we're all getting something different out of the shows that we watch. I thought it was very interesting and insightful. I think I'm a little bit of both types suggested. I think I weigh in on the intellectual side, but there's a good chunk of the emotional fanning going on over here too. Obviously I have favorite characters (though not with every show, several of my shows I simply love everyone!) but I tend not to have OTPs. I tend to multi-ship my favorite characters.

Actually, this reminds me of a post that [livejournal.com profile] chloris67 made the other day about OTCs (or favorite characters) and multi-shipping but then simply having one OT3 (Jawyercita, Kara/Leoben/Sam...) it's pretty unrelated to the fannish types discussion, but here's a link. Because it's interesting!

→ I finished reading Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris (the first of the novels that True Blood is based on) and have started the second. minor book and show spoilers, all about Sam )

→ I'm having woes about Supernatural. I quit the show and I'm perfectly happy with that. But it seems I can't escape it either way. I guess over the summer I'd forgotten how many of you (my flisters) watch and review that show. And, I'm not going to lie it's a bit overwhelming. (And yet underwhelming at the same time... if that makes sense.)

There are several varied and numerous reasons why I've given up that show for good, and I think I might make a giant post of reasons, maybe later today. (This post is getting too long.) But my point in bringing it up now, is that it does put this huge divide between me and my flist. At least when I hated the fuck out of that show last year I could still discuss and hate it with you. Now, A) I'm not watching so true discussion isn't an option and B) Everything about it infuriates me. I mean, we're talking Mrs. White, flames on the side of my face, breathing breath, heaving breaths, type hate. So yeah. DIVIDE. It's huge and un-ignorable, and frustrating. And I'm no longer making coherent thoughts. Ignore me.
