  • Mood:

Summer is for catching up on TV - old and new

For some reason, May seems to be a big reading month for me. I read 25 books in May, but when June rolled around, my reading mojo started failing me, so instead I turned to Kdramas. I just finished Coffee Prince, so Personal Taste, here I come!

But that's not really going to occupy me for long, especially not at the rate I'm going. Therefore, A POLL!


Which of my unwatched DVD sets should I watch next?

Breaking Bad s1
6(9.0%)
Carnivàle s1-2
7(10.4%)
Deadwood s1-3
19(28.4%)
In Plain Sight s1-2
7(10.4%)
Secret Diary of a Call Girl s1-3
19(28.4%)
Shameless s1-5
3(4.5%)
The Tudors s1-2
6(9.0%)
You should buy the show I'll tell you about in the comments instead.
0(0.0%)

Screw those, instead you should be rewatching:

Annual Farscape rewatch FTW!
17(32.7%)
Rome - because everyone need a regular dose of nudity and carnage
6(11.5%)
Twin Peaks. Dwarfs. Log ladies. Pie. What's not to love?
5(9.6%)
Veronica Mars (and of course the only reason to get through season 3 is to finally finish capping it so you NEVER have to see it again.)
15(28.8%)
The West Wing. And hey, maybe this will be one of those rewatches where s5 doesn't make you homicidal!
9(17.3%)
Something else that I'll tell you about in the comments.

That's right, RADIO BUTTONS. Ticky boxes are for sissies.





Now that everyone else is finishing up their 30 days meme, I figured I'd start on mine. Though since I don't post often enough to finish this until 2012, I'm gonna do a few at a time and pretty much when I feel like it instead of in every entry.


Day 01 - A show that never should have been canceled
I'm not sure about "never", because I don't think there's any show strong enough to churn out episodes of quality year after year after year... But so many were cut down before their prime. I'm going to go with:



And the thing that makes me extra bitter about this cancellation is that I can't even enjoy the few episodes they managed to air. (Okay, so I could watch them, but seeing as how the picture quality is beyond bad, the aspect ratio is all fucked up and caps are just a laughable concept, I'd rather not.) They have got to release a DVD set soon or I'm going to explode!




Day 02 - A show you wish more people were watching
I haven't been following the upfronts, but I'm going to take a wild stab here and guess that I'm already too late with my first choice:



So my second choice would be:



The third season is filming right now as I understand it! I found the first season to be pretty good and I loved Erica from the start. The second season was AMAZING and I got myself a 'ship, even! And if more people watched the show, I might even get some 'shippy fic out of it! (My favorite scenario is a Time Traveler's Wife sort of thing, except without the sucky ending. Which I will never stop harping about, because it retroactively ruined the entire book for me. UGH!)





Day 03 - Your favorite new show (aired this TV season)
This one is easy!



There isn't a character that I don't love, and even though the finale left me a little worried about the direction next year, season 1 was about as solid as they come.




Day 04 - Your favorite show ever
While I'm not as fannish about it as most other shows, this is the one that I feel doesn't let me down, and I can rewatch it ENDLESSLY.



Yes, there was the Charlize Theron misstep in early season 3, but even that is somewhat mitigated by how the arc plays out, and the rest of season 3 has some of the best episodes of the show ever!





The rest of the days:
Day 05 - A show you hate
Day 06 - Favorite episode of your favorite TV show
Day 07 - Least favorite episode of your favorite TV show
Day 08 - A show everyone should watch
Day 09 - Best scene ever
Day 10 - A show you thought you wouldn't like but ended up loving
Day 11 - A show that disappointed you
Day 12 - An episode you've watched more than 5 times
Day 13 - Favorite childhood show
Day 14 - Favorite male character
Day 15 - Favorite female character
Day 16 - Your guilty pleasure show
Day 17 - Favorite mini series
Day 18 - Favorite title sequence
Day 19 - Best TV show cast
Day 20 - Favorite kiss
Day 21 - Favorite ship
Day 22 - Favorite series finale
Day 23 - Most annoying character
Day 24 - Best quote
Day 25 - A show you plan on watching (old or new)
Day 26 - OMG WTF? Season finale
Day 27 - Best pilot episode
Day 28 - First TV show obsession
Day 29 - Current TV show obsession
Day 30 - Saddest character death
