+ True Blood has sucked so much this season, haha. What even was that finale. quick spoiler )

+ Haven't seen Mad Men 4x08 yet, but I'm looking forward to it.

+ Watched the Nikita pilot yesterday. I am so down. The writing was so-so (loads of introductory expo-dumping) but Maggie is amazing and it's got loads of potential. That said? lol, Shane West.

+ Did NOT watch the VMA's (tumblr kept me abreast of the happenings). LOL at more Kanye/Taylor drama. Are we done weeping over that girl yet? *kanye shrug* I'll probably catch Kanye's and Florence and the Machine's performances on YT later, but no interest in anything else.

+ I don't think I posted about Vampire Diaries 2x01. AMAYSING. Would not even know where to start. ALL OF IT WAS ACES. ESPECIALLY KATHERINE AND BONNIE, oh my god. Quick rec: [livejournal.com profile] sarahtales on why TVD is the greatest.

+ Kind of looking back on the Merlin premiere with mild irritation atm. Maybe I'll feel better after Saturday's episode.

I'm actually going to be brief about True Blood this time instead of just saying I'm going to be brief and then rambling, haha. Because I want to talk about two other thingies!

I watched Mad Men last night but find I don't have much to say about it, really. It was slow and heavy on the Don. Good Joannie stuff, though. I think I'll rewatch later in the week or something.

For now, some quick points on True Blood; I actually really liked this ep overall even though I didn't like everything about it.

So I caught Sherlock yesterday, being a fan of Moffat's writing on Who I had to give it a shot. I generally really like the series - I think the cinematography is great, the performances are stellar, the dynamic between John and Sherlock is pitch perfect, and the writing and dialogue are good. So yeah, I really do like it overall. There are a few things stopping me from loving it, though.

Sherlock parts 1 and 2, mostly concerning marginalized character representation )

True Blood remains crazy but there were some definite bright spots for me this week.True Blood 3x07 )

Finally, Mad Men 4x02 )
heathershaped: (Mad Men: Peggy high)
So Mad Men is back, and this week's True Blood was the first of the season to have me actually looking forward to next week. WHEE.

Thing is, I would review last night's True Blood but I'm still trying to un-see that last scene.

So True Blood was much better this week. spoilers for 3x02 )

I caught up on s3 of Breaking Bad just before the finale aired. It took dedication but I managed it.

And let me just say that I would recommend this show to any and everybody. If it had more ladies, it would be as good as Mad Men. (what; I'm nothing if not predictable.)

spoilers for 3x13 - with loads of space between this and True Blood reactions )

First off, Sonoma County CA separates elderly gay couple and sells their home. I don't even, you guys. There are no words. More on what you can do at the link.

+++ So this morning I checked my f-list and had to skip 400 before I was caught up. That's RIDICULOUS, you guys. It's not your entries that are the problem so much as communities and feeds, so I did some trimming of those. Definitely not enough, but I'll worry about that later. Anyway, that means I opened up that long ticky-box list and removed things that way and it's possible I made some mistakes. Since I'm not actually planning on removing any LJ accounts that aren't dead, if I did remove yours by accident, it WAS an accident, and please to let me know so I can re-add you. ♥

+++ There will be True Blood webisodes starting next month, and season 2 is available for pre-order. *\o/*

+++ I am really loving Treme. :D

+++ I haven't been reading much fic lately, which feels weird (and means my 'to-read' tag on Delicious is MASSIVE again). I'll get to it eventually. *g* I've been reading actual books though. Currently reading The Queen of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner, which is second in a series that is pretty damn entertaining at the moment. In other news, I love my Kindle.

+++ Are people really whining about Amy's minskirts? Because I hope people aren't really whining about Amy's miniskirts. But I read some things that indicate people are really whining about Amy's miniskirts, and that doesn't even compute.

That's all I got. I hope everyone's weeks are off to a good start!

+ I couldn't watch True Blood last night; will catch up when I get home. Hopefully I can keep avoiding spoilers.

+ I did catch Mad Men, which was the best episode yet, though some parts were ...jarring to stay the least. (What was WRONG with people back then? O_o) Anyway, Peggy and Joan continue to own my soul and I continue to watch the show with a mixture of squee and laughter and sadness and irritation and near-palpable tenseness.

+ The party post at camelot_fleet is still going and there are 600 comments or something. There's also a lot of commentfic and it's all fantastic. Gwen/Morgana and Gwen/Merlin and Morgana/Merlin and Uther/Dragon and Uther/Gaius and Arthur/Merlin/Morgana and Hunith/Arthur and Gwen/Nimueh and OT4 and Arthur/Gwen and and and I can't even remember. I'll re-post mine later, methinks.

+ I am recommending it all, but I have to single out this Gwen art, by [livejournal.com profile] yue_ix -- it's modern AU and she is a mechanic and it is BEAUTIFUL because her coveralls are down and she has freckles and a wrench and a tool belt and there's her HAIR and her top and the colors and she's wiping sweat off her brow and good lord it is the most gorgeous thing I've ever seen. And I should link to it, probably.

+ The new tagline for Merlin s2 is "You can't escape destiny." Why does that scare me? :P

+ ETA: Random 'WHOA' -- Disney is buying Marvel? What is this?

+ Deadline for [livejournal.com profile] hermionebigbang is next Sunday! We're excitedly waiting for the rest of the fics and art and we kind of have a lot of work to do. But we'll get it done and it'll be great. Posting for that starts on 19 September.

+ Hope everyone's getting their weeks off to a good start. After work, I've got coursework to get done for tomorrow, and betaing to do, and I should probably TRY to finish my reel_merlin.
heathershaped: (BSG: Sharon)
+ I start class again tomorrow. Medical Virology. Hopefully it'll be more interesting than what I took last semester.

+ I didn't post about True Blood, did I? Suffice it to say that it's officially the most insane show on television. In a good way, except for the dubious appropriation of paganism that makes little sense. It's sad how much TV show writers can screw around with non-Christian religions with impunity, but very typical.

Still. The episode was so unbelievably cracked out I didn't mind too much. And Pam is back next week. I've missed her.

+ An American version of Skins? How about NO.

+ Dan Radcliffe and Tom Felton, why so adorable with your BFF-ness?

+ It's almost time for [livejournal.com profile] smutty_claus! I think it'll be my only exchange this season, and I'm excited about it. I want to write HP again. I may end up doing the Merlin solstice exchange as well; haven't decided.

+ Merlin premieres in a few short weeks! *dances* I'm still tickled with Merlin fandom in general. Today there was Gwen vitriol at one of the comms, and it was met with an almost-solid wall of "OH HELL NO" from most of the commenters. <3 Very gratifying to see. Multishipping and poly love FTW!

+ Hope everyone had a good Monday. All that I've posted in the last few days has been icons, so I thought I'd check in. Which reminds me, must finish graphics for [livejournal.com profile] hermionebigbang.

+ How's everyone? ♥

AAAAAAHHHHHH CLIFFHANGERS. Sorry to my friends on Twitter who had to suffer my frustrated outburst at 2am. XP But seriously, from week to week the suspense kills me.

8pm EST, ppl.

And True Blood later. This is cracky funtime night, or something.

Hm, US Open is still on and should've ended 16 minutes ago. If it runs over, NBC, I will cut you.


SERIOUSLY, GET THIS GOLF OFF MY SCREEN. Sorry if this offends you, John Sheppard, you know I love you.

Son of ETA: Okay, okay. They're ending the coverage due to darkness, but they're still letting everyone finish their holes.

True Bloooooood. My thoughts under the cut.

oh show, show, show, you are too freaking much )

Is it next Sunday night yet?

+ I will probably do some sort of real post later. There's some really sobering stuff happening in the news.
heathershaped: (True Blood: Lafayette)
True Blood premieres tonight. *\o/* Yay, even though I'll have to wait (hopefully not too long) to watch it because I dropped HBO and Showtime from my satellite service.

Stupid budget.

Anyway, here's what I am hoping for (bear in mind that I haven't read the books so I have no idea how likely most of this is):

spoilers for the first season )

+ Also, more Merlin s2 set pictures with Gwen and Morgana in them. this one in particular has me squeeing like mad. Hay thar, pretties.

+ Okay, back to poking at fics.

Moar TV.

Also, [livejournal.com profile] ladybirdington, in case you didn't read the spoilery stuff, Lee was totally in this episode of True Blood. With a guitar. *drool* I'll totally cap and icon for you.
