I gotta say, if Nick finally buys it, they'll have to make Archie a field guy or my six-plus year viewership will be terminated. (And I shall be a VERY SAD PANDA)
ETA THIS PANDA IS VERY PLEASED INDEED (but would appreciate it if Ray would stop dying plz)
Okay, first of all: I really liked it better when Olivia was just Badass Normal. She doesn't need superpowers, and she certainly doesn't need a new one every three episodes.
I keep cursing like a sailor every time NotCharlie is on screen. Seriously, that's pissing me off. I can at least take some comfort in the fact that the sonofabitch seems to be suffering.
That is the coolest typewriter EVER. I want one.
Yay for Walter and Peter bonding!
Half the cast of CSI was kicking some serious ass tonight. I was mightily impressed. And I LOVE the character development Nicky's been getting the last few seasons.
I can't seem to find Flashforward for online viewing, and that makes me sad. : (
Also starting this week was NCIS, which rocked my socks very much. Speaking of turning things up to eleven, DiNozzo/McGee subtext FTW! My only complaints about the episode were that there wasn't quite enough torture and that the applaiuse at the end was so cheesy even I had problems with it.
And the spinoff was... interesting. The characters appeal to me, especially Cool J and O'Donnell. We haven't had a buddy cop show in a while. They also get point for having a spiffy HQ and a supervisor who personally dresses her agents.
Let's talk entertainment.
Shows start again this month - most of them. Unfortunately, I don't have TV, so I have to watch what I can online. Here's what I'm looking at and what I'd like to see happen this year.
Fringe - Meh, I don't care so much about the show in general, especially the direction it seems to be taking. Mostly I'm interested in Walter and Peter and their getting to be proper family again. AND WHY THE HELL PETER'S NAME IS ON THAT TOMBSTONE. Okay, I like that other guy too. That one agent. I forget his name.
CSI - Season fucking TEN. Jeezus. I've been watching since season three. And seriously, something needs to happen to Nick this year. It's been way too freaking long. And I want to see Bobby Dawson again, dammit.
NCIS - Poor Tony. Will he and Ziva ever mend those bridges? ETA AND I WANT MORE JIMMY PALMER DAMN IT ALL
Numbers - I failed to completely catch up with the last season. I need to do that.
Castle - Mmm, Nathan Fillion.
Trauma - Paramedics? Cliff Curtis? That's all I need to know.
Sanctuary - SANCTUARY!
Stargate Universe - I shall give it a chance. Mostly because of Robert Carlyle. And it may have something to do with Brad and Robert having a history of making good shows.
Nip/Tuck - I hope it's better than last season.
Unfortunately I will not be watching Criminal Minds, one of my favorite shows, because it's not fucking available online. >:(
I almost got caught up with Lost, but then decided I'd had enough of them threatening to kill Charlie. It's not worth it. Enough of my favorites have bought the farm this year, so I thought I'd just quit while I was ahead. Goodbye, Jack, Desmond, Sawyer, Sayid, Jin, Sun, Claire, and all you other castaways. And goodbye Charlie, whether you make it or not. For once I'd prefer not to know.
I'm sick again. I blame school.
Hez, you were in my dream last night, I'm not sure why. It was nothing bad. You were just there.
It's been busy as hell. I have more homework than I need, and I spend more time wih my friends than I should in order to get it all done. Last Saturday we went and saw Blood and Chocolate, which was awesome. Not your average werewolf story, and I really like how they did the wolves. They used real wolves! Also, there was an adorable male lead who got whumped on a lot. I really liked the movie. I might get myself a copy when it comes out.
I've been having fun with Sims, even though I haven't played in two days, partly because I've been as mentioned busy and partly because it crashed my computer on Sunday night. When I see the words "the system has recovered from a serious error," I start to get all twitchy. Anyway, I made the Stargate gang and the Potter family, as well as a few other. I really like making families. And Jessica taught me the money cheat, so I can make the houses as nice as I like.
House sucked last night. Sorry, Hez, but it wasn't a proper House episode. It was much more fun watching Hugh Laurie win the Golden Globe and SAG awards.
CSI these days! I am much enjoying Liev Schreiber being on the show and I think we should keep him. They need some new blood anyway. And now Nicky's getting all emo, which I love to pieces. Now he just needs to grow his goddamn hair back. And I wish Grissom would get back so he could open that bloody box!
Today went by far too fast, but part of that was because I slept past 11 and spent the rest messing around on my computer. Last night I was up till 3:30 watching Black Books, which is one of the most hilaious Britcoms EVER. I hope I didn't bother my neighbors from the laughing. One of them was hung over this morning (I know because the sticky note on her door said so).
I was going to study for finals this weekend, but I realized finals are two weeks away, and if I study now I'll forget everything by then. There's dead week, and then I have four days of no classes before my tests. Prime study time.
NICK SANG in last week's CSI!!! Adorable!
I watched part of Troy last night because I found out Garrett Hedlund, who plays Achilles' cousin Patroclus, will be playing Murtagh in Eragon. He moves so wonderfully with a sword. He may not be Robert Pattinson, but I think he'll do nicely. I have absolutely no idea whether the movie will be any good. Having Jeremy Irons, though he is great, doesn't guarantee a hit. The last time he was in a fantasy movie, it kind of bombed. However, movies that are based on very popular books usually do better unless they change them too much. Judging by the cast list on Imdb.com, they seem to have almost all the right characters, which is a very good sign. And even if the movie does suck (which I hope it won't), I'll still always have the books. (And I'll probably always use my casting unless I REALLY like the movie choices.)
CSI seriously needs to have Tarantino do ALL their season finales. They can't top Grave Danger without him, no matter how much hype they induce. As regular episodes, they were fine. But they got us geared up for something exciting that never really happened. I hope my roommate likes television.
I'd rather be an honest bitch than nice and a liar.
It's not that I'm happy about who did get the bullet, it's that I'm wild about who didn't. To think I waited an extra week to find this out.
Bring on the next episode, bitches!
I may not have to work on Friday! WOOHOO!
Or so I thought.
I thought I was fine with it, that waiting an extra week would be no problem. Then last night I had this crazy dream where I saw the episode, or at least the end of it, and I woke up a little shell-shocked and had to consciously remind myself -- as I often do after dreams -- that none of it happened. I didn't see the episode. I don't really know who was hurt. Although after so accurately guessing a rather important plot twist in the books I just finished reading, I'm not so sure I trust myself to be wrong about my intuition of who gets the bullet/whatever. I'll grant three guesses of who it was in my dream. Apparently I haven't stopped fretting. This always gets bad when I lose sleep, and now I don't have a wonderful book to distract me anymore. Even though the end of that book did break my heart.
Today it was a little harder not to watch the tape. I'm watching an old episode of CSI right now and every time Nicky is on screen I think, "It better not be you!" If it is him, I sure hope he has some lives left. I think he's used up at least three or four on the show as it is. All I have to do is push Play, but I'm not going to do that.
Hez, if you're reading this and rolling your eyes, I refer to a previous post in which I stated, "Fiction IS my life." It sort of goes with the territory when you're a creative writer.
Speaking of which, I spent the last couple of days reading The Complete Idiot's Guide to Writing a Novel and now I'm planning out a story. Wish me luck!
This thing CSI does every season where they threaten to kill Nicky? Not fun anymore!
Okay. I don't know for sure it's Nick that gets shot. But based on the show so far, as well as what I've read about the episode, I'd say it's pretty damn likely. It was fun when he had a gun pointed at him by a crazy chick, and when he was stalked. It was even fun last year when he was buried alive, even though it scared the shit out of me. But this I'm not liking! Especially since they're spreading it out over two weeks! GAAAAAH! I had a dream at the start of Season 5 that he was going to die. After that year's finale I thought he was in the clear, that they couldn't POSSIBLY do that two years in a row. I want to say I think it could be Greg or Brass, but Warrick was awfully emotional. For crying out loud, at least last year we knew who it was!
Don't tell me I have no life. Fiction is my life. I'm a writer, dammit.
This is not a good time for Frappuccino.
