I'm bored, snarky, and entering the silly phase of not having had enough sleep last night. So I felt it was time for some quirky summaries.


Sporkers, to the Batmobile! )

My Starsky & Hutch marathon makes me feel warm and fuzzy.

As y'all may have noticed, I've gone sort of retro in the last couple of months. Here's the rundown.

Battlestar Galactica - not exactly new to me, but it was probably the first time I watched nearly all of it straight through, and watching it again was directly responsible for two other shows I got into.

The A-Team - I found out Dirk Benedict was in it (and there seriously wasn't enough BSG). It was fun at first, but got kind of repetitive and Face just didn't get hurt often enough for me. Until the very last episode.

Emergency! - because of a combination of an old BSG and a new Criminal Minds, an unusual name, beautiful hair, and an incident of channel-flipping, I got into this show, which has sort of changed my life. Randolph Mantooth is the name of the guy responsible. I remembered liking him from the first time I saw that BSG episode years ago and liked him again the second time. I saw his name again DAYS LATER on a brand-new Criminal Minds (thirty years older), looked him up, and saw that he was in a show I stumbled upon while browsing for something to watch one afternoon. Lucky for me, the show was on Hulu and I'd liked it enough the first time (even though I was barely paying attention) to watch some more. It is one of my favorite shows. I'm going to try to become a paramedic because of it. And apparently I'm not the only one.

Simon & Simon - What can I say? BROTHERS. AJ's pretty and sensitive and gets traumatized often enough. It doesn't hurt that he bears a resemblance to a young Mark Hamill.

Starsky and Hutch - Wow. This show was much more hardcore than I ever expected. People die. Girlfriends get dispatched. Forcible heroin addiction. But more than that, there's something about a pair of guys who are so close that they will repeatedly move heaven and earth to help one another without a second thought. There's that much love. AND HUTCH SINGS. (Except season four, with that moustache... dammit, Hutch. Was that necessary?)

There you have it. I don't think I can go any farther back in time than this because it will all be too fluffy. I like my characters emotionally damaged. My one issue with this era is that women seem to be able (in most shows) to to little else than get kidnapped, be held hostage, and cower in terror. What's up with that? Princess Leia was no wimp.
