I lost track of this show last year because I did not like the format with the kids (8-13 year olds) and it just didn't hold my interest. Partially because of the kids (sorry kids!) and partially because I find judges Jason Derulo and Paula Abdul about as interesting as watching paint dry.

A few days ago I read that they were going to bring back the old format with 18-30 year olds in the competition, and today I read that they're bringing back Mary Murphy with a yet-to-be-announced third judge! Yay! I'm so excited!

Anyone else?

krickets: (ATLANTIS. rodney. oh for fuck's sake.)
Is anybody else super disappointed about SYTYCD? I am still gonna watch, but I'm just so sad about the new format because it means the old show I loved is pretty much dead. This is a new show. I'll take what I can get, but am still totally bummed.
krickets: (KILLING. beggars and liars)
First, hello to all my new friends from the summer befriending meme. (They should totally be called befriending memes! And I'm not just saying that because my browser corrected me.) Welcome everyone!

Here are some quick non-spoilery thoughts about TV.

Penny Dreadful: While I have some minor issues with this show, I am glad that [livejournal.com profile] ozmissage gave me her elevator pitch on why I should watch it, because it is one of the only shows in a while that has engaged me this much. Lots of thoughts about this band of damaged oddballs.

Pretty Little Liars: Holy crap I have been loving this season. Spoilers redacted. This last episode was kind of amazing despite the spoilers redacted. I feel like they've created a whole new dynamic and I couldn't be MORE BESIDE MYSELF. /Random caps.

Leverage: Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] slybrunette I have begun my journey into Leverage madness apparently. She's supposed to be watching The Killing as a kind of "fandom exchange" so we'll see where that goes. Really loving all the characters on this show and its unique brand of campy fun. Parker is perfect. OT3 is pretty well perfect. And I've already gotten through the first two seasons, so I'm kind of all in.

Rectify: This show continues to be a slow moving but beautifully detailed story that I just can't seem to shake. I believe [livejournal.com profile] kiki_miserychic and [livejournal.com profile] killmotion are watching, but more of you should be. Because it's beautiful. Not even necessarily the kind of show you have to talk about. Just let it wash over you. Yeah.

So You Think You Can Dance: I'm having trouble going "all in" this season but it may be because I work Wednesday nights and so I have to catch up when I can. I do have a few favorites, but I'm not fully committed yet. Are Tabitha and Napoleon going to choreograph this season? I really love their work and miss them when they're not around. Sometimes I love Chris Scott's hip hop routines and sometimes they bore me to tears. NappyTabs always brings it. I think Mary was channeling L'il C this episode with some of her commentary. Speaking of that, whatever happened to L'il C? I miss his randomness! (How did this turn into the SYTYCD nostalgia hour?)

That's about it for me. I'm behind on The Fosters, and don't have much to say about Switched at Birth or True Blood (which wasn't the greatest last week).
