Fall is here, and while back in New Hampshire that meant beautiful leaves turning and shit like that, here it means there's lots of American TV to carry me through my boredom. Last year, I was too busy to really catch anything new, but between my back injury and packing up to move (I have a gooorgeous new apartment, y'all), I've had nothing to do, so it's basically been NOTHING BUT PREMIERES for me.

Let's see how everything stacks up!

New Shows )

Returning Shows )

Unpremieres: Shows that just ended or are mid-run )

Meanwhile, I quit The Big Bang Theory and Grey's Anatomy without bothering to watch the premieres. I just... can't seem to drum up the interest in either of them. OTOH, totally going to be catching Once Upon a Time when that comes out. My beloved Cougar Town is pushed to midseason, and I guess so is 30 Rock? :( Mad Men is pushed to FOREVER (seriously, MARCH, WTF). Game Of Thrones and Sirens are both back in April, and Misfits... when the hell is Misfits back, anyway?

So... anyway, I like TV. Let's talk about TV.
okayawesome: laura roslin (it's prawn love between two prawns)
So first I want to say that my issues with Breaking Bad are, as of season three, largely resolved: the main female characters start to develop agency and become interesting in their own right, and I am pleased with that.

But mostly, I just want to say that I'm almost done with season three and

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HOLY SHIT.

LIKE. SERIOUSLY. HOLY FUCKING SHITBALLS.

IF YOU WANT A SHOW THAT WILL MAKE YOU SAY "HOLY FUCKING SHITBALLS" EVERY OTHER EPISODE, WATCH BREAKING BAD.

OMG also ALL THE EMMYS EVER FOR AARON PAUL. Sorry, supporting actors on every other show, none of you will ever be as good.

eta AND NOW I'M DONE WITH SEASON THREE AND TEARS FALLING AS I FALL IN A SLOW CIRCLE AND DIE.

HEY

SO I SAID I WAS GOING TO UPDATE AND THEN NEVER DID, BIG SURPRISE.

HERE'S THE UPDATE: I HURT MY BACK AND I SORT OF HATE MY JOB.

BUT RIGHT NOW THAT'S UNIMPORTANT TO ME BECAUSE:

I GOT A DANCE WITH DRAGONS. 12 DAYS EARLY.

AND I'M LITERALLY HOUSEBOUND, SO I HAVE NOTHING TO DO BUT PHOTOSHOP, WOW, AND READ ADWD.

Part of me wants to wait until July 12th so I have other people to talk about it with... but the rest of me knows THERE'S NO WAY IN HELL THAT'S HAPPENING.

ETA: Yes, my resolve lasted all of a half an hour.

okayawesome: laura roslin (HBIC)
HOLYSHITHOLYSHITHOLYSHIT

WHAT A FUCKING FLAWLESS ENDING

EXCEPT FOR THAT ONE REALLY STUPID SCENE

YOU KNOW THE ONE

BUT OTHERWISE, HOLY SHIT.

Real post soon. Right now I just need to bask in how FUCKING AWESOME that was.

So I saw X-Men: First Class, and ultimately I wound up feeling, about it, the way I feel about the actual X-Men comics: I hated about half of it (the Shaw/war plot, the totally nonsensical 'age of the atom' crap, stupid deaths, clunky writing) and loved about half of it (virtually everything involving the kids, mutant politics, intra-team clashes, etc.).

Actually, that shakes out to almost exactly the things I love and hate about the comics, too, which I guess makes it a pretty great adaptation.

But I used to be hugely into X-Men, so it feels kind of cool to feel that little spark of interest in it again. If the movie had had Nightcrawler instead of his crappy dad (and I don't mean Mystique, ALTHOUGH I SHOULD) I would basically be unable to stop myself from being all the fuck over it right now. As it is, I am still pretty sure I will be happy to read all the fic ever.

I know there's a kinkmeme, but is there anything else? I have to admit, I don't love kinkmemes for fandoms I actually want to get involved with instead of just browsing around in.

I mean, I guess I could just get back into X-Men fandom, but since that involves A: reading comics from a hundred million thousand miles away and B: currently, a world without Kurt some of my favorite cha-- oh, let's face it, I'm talking about Kurt. Anyway, comics piss me off too much, so nah.

Also: has anyone written Sean/Hank yet? IDEK, but I saw it and I'd read it. Or even Charles/Hank, if Charles can stop mooning over Erik for two seconds. POSSIBLY EVEN CHARLES/HANK THAT INVOLVES COMPLICATED FEELINGS ABOUT ERIK AND MYSTIQUE.

Aw, what up, X-Men. ♥
okayawesome: laura roslin (set phasers to love me ;_;)
I feel like literally every post I make lately is a "I swear I'm not dead" post. Regardless: I'm not dead!

My life has been alternately super busy and then not busy at all for a solid two-week period where I had the stomach flu and no energy to even write words, so I've been kind of... inactive. Also, there was WoW. But! I have a few things to say:

1) IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR NYC GQMFS AND ALL OTHER NEW YORK TYPES: I WILL BE BACK IN NEW YORK FROM APRIL 28TH-MAY 9TH. ROUND UP THE PARTY PATROL.

2) Media shit: Saw Black Swan, did not like it. Have not seen any other movies, because we don't have those newfangled cinemaplex things out here in the boonies. TV has been kicking ass lately, anyway. Community has returned to being my #1 jam, with Parks in a close second. I already miss Cougar Town. I'm disgustingly addicted to Grey's and really miss Owen, WHERE HAS HE BEEN LATELY? I started watching The Vampire Diaries and Fairly Legal but am fairly ambivalent towards both so far.

3) Speaking of shows I find mediocre, I wrote Big Bang Theory fic! (I kid, I kid... mostly. From what I've seen of the fandom, it seems better than the show itself has been lately.) Which I will post in the next post, so apologies for clogging up your flists.

4) WINTER IS COMING. WINTER IS COMING. You guys, I am getting so fucking excited about this series.

5) And speaking of things I am getting so fucking excited about, there is a fair chance I may, in fact, be going to the figure skating World Championships in Tokyo. *_* Only for one day, only for the Men's SP/Pairs SP (in b4 LOL pairs), but oh my God I might actually get to see both Daisuke Takahashi and Ryan Bradley compete in the same event PROOF THAT DREAMS COME TRUE.
okayawesome: laura roslin (Default)
So I kind of forgot how excited I was about Community, until suddenly, I realized A: the premiere of season two is A WEEK AWAY and B: the DVD release is LESS THAN A WEEK AWAY. AND THERE IS A FREAKING SOUNDTRACK THAT IS AWESOME.

So now I'm basically about to explode with excitement.

Flist, once again, I urge you: WATCH THE SHIT OUT OF THIS SHOW. IT IS SO DAMN GOOD.



okayawesome: laura roslin (gob is happier than michael)
Holy shit, Peggy Olson has turned into such a total badass. I want to be her FOREVER.
okayawesome: laura roslin (lemon says whaaaat up)
THIS IS A POST TO TALK ABOUT HOW AWESOME INCEPTION WAS.

INCEPTION? WAS AWESOME.
okayawesome: laura roslin (FACEPALM.)
So I'm way behind in the midst of all this crazy IRL business, but today has been a pretty big day in fandom! Let's discuss.

The Emmys, Johnny Weir, Daisuke Takahashi, World of Warcraft )

There's a lot of other stuff I've been meaning to talk about, like how we finished LOST and how the Karate Kid was fucking awesome and how everything about The Last Airbender makes me want to weep blood, but that can all wait for a later date.

In the meantime, um... Work of Art is seriously the best new reality show around and you should all watch it, there's a Community marathon on NBC tonight and you should all watch it, and Mad Men is coming back ON THE DAY I LEAVE THE COUNTRY sob. But you should all watch it anyway.

:D

You guys, I am so excited about this I can't even stand it.

(For those who don't know, my current astral husband, Daisuke Takahashi, is having two new programs choreographed for him by my other current astral husband, Stephane Lambiel*. One of the programs is being described as "the story of a magical character who lives in the woods ... [who] meets, among others creatures, butterflies. But also a monster. He will fight it." JE SUIS EXCITE.)

*Someday I will learn to type accent marks, I swear.

Speaking of excite: Exactly one week till I'm back in NY, and exactly one month until I leave for Japan! OH MY GOD. I still have so much to do. D:

eta Oh also speaking of excite OH MY GOD NEW FUTURAMA NEW FUTURAMA NEW FUTURAMA I HAVEN'T WATCHED IT YET BUT WE ARE SO GOING TO TONIGHT.

eta2 I also forgot, we are now TWO EPISODES away from the end of LOST. Which means I'm past everything I've been spoiled for ( :( ) and oh man, two episodes, seriously. I have no idea how they're going to wrap this shit up in like three hours, damn.
okayawesome: laura roslin (nuclear bombs!)
A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE TEASER TRAILER

The degree to which I cannot wait for this show is utterly stupid.

LOST continues at a breakneck pace, meanwhile! We're now ALL UP IN SEASON SIX, MAN. Last episode watched was "Dr. Linus." Holy wow, I think we'll be done by the end of the week.

CAN I JUST SAY, WITHOUT SPOILERS:

1) I REALLY DO NOT KNOW HOW LOCKE MADE IT ONTO EW'S "BEST CHARACTERS EVER" LIST AND BEN DIDN'T. BEN. BEN IS INCREDIBLE. I AM FIRMLY ON THE "JUST KEEP THROWING EMMYS AT MICHAEL EMERSON" BANDWAGON.

2) THE SUN/JIN STORYLINE IS MAKING ME WANT TO PUNCH EVERYONE IN THE FACE. OH MY GOD.
okayawesome: laura roslin (magical flying zebra with wiiings)
Other than [livejournal.com profile] perculious, anyway.

BUT I DO.

BECAUSE I HATE EVAN LYSACEK.

HE IS A GIANT ORANGE DOUCHE WHO MAKES WOMEN CRY AND CHEERFULLY PROFITS FROM/ENDORSES HOMOPHOBIA.

VOTE NICOLE.
okayawesome: laura roslin (fraser is confused and annoyed)
So today was awesome (I went to my roommate's parents' place and they fed us big dinner and let us play in the pool!), but now, upon my return, I realize that the internet is completely ruined.

You see, as most of you know, there's this little show called LOST. The show I quit back in season three, and, as of three weeks ago, started watching again -- from the very beginning. Which means that I'm getting ready to kick myself for all the spoilers I uncaringly stumbled across over the last couple of years. I've already been spoiled for three major things this season, and I'd really like to not be spoiled for anything else.

I'm on season two. The finale was today.

D:

Sites that are off-limits to me: ONTD, Twitter, Facebook, Project Rungay, Six Word Stories, every forum I'm on, plus probably I shouldn't be checking my flists... Basically the only places I can reliably go right now are Echo Bazaar, ONTD_skating, and... yeah. Robot Unicorn Attack? Speranza?

When the hell am I going to be able to internet again? :(
okayawesome: laura roslin (magical flying zebra with wiiings)
I know in every post I'm like "I will do less keysmashing about skating" and then totally fail to actually stop talking about it. But I decided I had to finally icon up, and then wasted 20 minutes staring at Daisuke and the stupidly hot Brian Joubert (and his constant nudity) and anyway to make a long story short I just wound up stealing this one from [livejournal.com profile] hobnobofjoy because it's Lambiel romancing a zebra, and what better way to sum up my feelings about figure skating?

But to change the subject entirely: I see I've reached that time of year again where I just cannot stop rewatching Due South and rereading classic Due South fic. I blame [livejournal.com profile] technathene, who as soon as I got down South was like HEY REMEMBER WHEN WE USED TO WATCH DUE SOUTH IN COLLEGE LET'S DO THAT AGAIN. And then I remembered, oh yes, this is the fandom of my heart.

I've already been through like, all of Resonant and Speranza and Arrow00's backlogs again, and reread Family Portrait, and jumped on Spuffyduds's awesome little Bedverse and I am not yet sated, so: what great Fraser/RayK have I totally been missing out on lately? Or what classics have I forgotten? Indulge me.
okayawesome: laura roslin (nuclear bombs!)
SO THAT WAS PRETTY RIDICULOUSLY AWESOME Y/Y/Y/Y/Y

I'm guessing the only person who enjoyed that more than I did was [livejournal.com profile] stepliana.

Vaguely spoilery? )
okayawesome: laura roslin (WHY DO YOU ALL SUCK)
SO I'M BEHIND ON MY MARVEL STUFF DUE TO THE PART WHERE I QUIT WHEN IT ALL STARTED SUCKING BUT

Horrified spoilers for the latest X-Men stuff )
okayawesome: laura roslin (Default)


Oh my freaking God. I'm laughing in horror right now.

I realize I've barely posted at all lately, and then when I do I usually feel like I should post about something other than skating. And especially about something other than Johnny Weir and Evan Douchecek, because really, I like, like... every other skater more than either of them (someday I will do a post about why Daisuke Takahashi should be the ruler of Earth).

But when someone calls someone else a slore on national television, I cannot resist.

eta If this doesn't make it on The Soup this week, I'm TOSing the planet.

unrelated eta2 Is there anyone who can beta a couple thousand words of Spock/Kirk mirrorverse porn for me?

eta3 Because wank is fast a-brewing everywhere! No, I don't think it's classy, non-juvenile, or non-tacky for anyone to be throwing words like slut and whore around. But it is also dramalicious, and I'm sorry, this whole thing is becoming both aggravating and fucking hilarious.
okayawesome: laura roslin (WHY DO YOU ALL SUCK)
How much do I hate everyone in [livejournal.com profile] ontd_skating right now?

ANSWER: A LOT.

PRO FUCKING TIP: IT IS NOT UP TO YOU TO DECIDE WHAT SOMEONE ELSE'S SEXUALITY IS, NO MATTER HOW THEY DRESS OR ACT, NO MATTER WHAT OTHER PEOPLE SAY ABOUT THEM.

God almighty. Oh, and I especially enjoy the implications that I'm a failure at being queer because I don't think it's cool to assume that Johnny Weir is a ten thousand on the Kinsey Scale.

Ahem.

So... is it weird that the latest Community kind of totally made me ship Annie/Shirley? And suspect that Abed does too?

OH WAIT, IT'S COMMUNITY, THE MULTI-SHIPPIEST SHOW ON TELEVISION.

In unrelated fan news: skating has taken over my brain. People who are responsible for this, you know who you are. But most currently I blame Stephane Lambiel because every time I see him I go



and DAISUKE FUCKING TAKAHASHI, THE GQMF OF WORLDS 2010. I have no gifs but LOOK AT THIS FLY MOTHERFUCKER.



HE LISTENED TO SOME BEYONCE AND THEN WENT AND KICKED ASS ALL OVER TORINO. I love him.

...So anyway, that happened. I've actually been working all week (I have a job again! for... like three weeks! what up!) and missed most of Worlds, but I was off today and spent way too much time catching up, including wasting the entire morning on the Women's SP when I should have been doing housework. So now I have it on the brain. Let's jam, flist. I know there are at least a few of you out there.
