I watched NCIS 10x01 and was less than impressed. Actually I was bored. And Gibbs Read more... ) Also I found I didn't really care about any of the characters? I liked Read more... ) But mostly I was just really unmoved and I don't know what happened to my love for these characters.

The Big Bang Theory 6x02 was excellent. It was really fun and funny. Minus the Howard scenes, which I mostly skipped, everything worked wonderfully. Read more... )

• I've never seen the Kathy Bates legal drama Harry's Law, though at one point I planned to, but I'd always thought it didn't do very well in the ratings and so I wasn't surprised by it's cancellation. However according to this list of cancelled show Harry's Law was actually NBC highest rated show at 7.8 million viewers. WTH? As the highest rated show you'd think it'd be their centerpiece show but then you learn that it's audience skews old (and I bet more women than men though I don't have confirmation) and as everyone knows only men 18-49 matter. Even for the highest rated show on a network. *is bitter* This annoys me so much.

• I've been watching Shonda Rhimes new show Scandal. Not bad. It definitely grew on me the more I watched though there isn't really any one character or paring that I love or want to watch the show for. Still I will probably watch the second season.

mainly positive, big spoilers for the entire season )

NCIS 9x24: Honestly I was mostly meh about it. The actually story of the episode wasn't really that interesting. I mainly spent my time worrying about Read more... )
iaria: (Jareth isn't happy (Labyrinth))
It's January 13th and I am still putting water out for the birds. That is just - wrong. Plus there is almost no snow in my yard. I'm not particularly fond of really cold weather, and I'm sure I'll be complaining when it starts, but I find this all disturbing and I'm ready for winter to start any time now.

Vampire Diaries thought:

slight spoilers for 3x10 - an idea I had about witches and Damon )

I don't often read spoilers anymore but I ended up accidentally reading a Fringe casting spoiler that made me pretty happy. happy, happy )



Overall I was not very impressed with True Blood last season and I actually had no intention of watching season four. Then I watched the trailer for it (this one) and then a couple other ones and now I'm actually kind of excited about it.spoilers for trailers )



I read Princess Academy by Shannon Hale and thought it was wonderful. I found myself wishing I could have read it back when I was a pre-teen. short, slightly spoilery )I will definitely check out more of her books.



NCIS 8x24 ‘Pyramid’

meh )

There is a post here at io9 by Charlie Jane Anders about a genre mashup she'd like to see which she calls 'the Evil Overlord Romance'.

It’s kind of tongue in cheek and I actually can’t tell just how serious she’s being but at the end she says: "Admit it: You want to read a whole Evil Overlord Romance novel now. And my answer is pretty much: hell, yes. I’ve never thought of it as ‘evil overlord romance’ but that is a trope I love. I would be ecstatic if it actually became the new big thing in books. I would read all those books. I would love for this to become a real genre option.

A lot of my fannish pairings would fit under this genre and even more if you look at them in a slightly AU way. This includes Sarah/Jareth (who were pictured in the article), Clark/Lex, Xavier/Magneto, Ares/Xena (or ubber Xena/Gabrielle), Doctor/Master, Carolyn/Riddick, Ba’al/anyone, Elena with pre-show Damon or with Katherine/Elijah/Klaus, BOSS’s Eriko/Nodate seemed set to fit this genre at the end of season one... I would be all over a story where say Lucy Diamond actually did live up to her press and seeing how her relationship with Amy progresses with that true.

“Unless you're going to make Wendy herself into the superhero/world-saver who accidentally falls in love with her arch-nemesis, in which case go for it. But having some other hero besides Wendy just takes away from the all-important focus on Wendy as our protagonist and the light to the Overlord's darkness.” This was a quote from the article that I particularly loved. Why does there have to be a third person, another male character to be the ‘hero’ and oppose the overlord? Why the hell can’t the heroine be that too? Heroes falling in love with their arch-nemesis, especially if there is a more complicated past relationship happening between them, is something I eat up with a spoon. We need more female heroes who don’t have to share the spotlight with a male hero. Actually we need more female Overlords and awesome bad guys as well. And just once I would love nothing more if both main characters in a sci-fi/fantasy/action flick could both be female. I’m dreaming I know but it’s such a nice dream.

Huge was cancelled. It’s sad. I didn’t love it like some other cancelled shows (*sniff* Terminator still hurts) but it was a great show that I really enjoyed. It had a lot of depth and dealt with the issue of weight, along with other issues like sexuality and growing up, in a really mature and accepting way that seems really rare. It felt like a very unique and honest look at being a teenager and issues that everyone faces and I’m sad it’s gone.
