Teevee

Only 1½ weeks left till my three week vacation! I need to distract myself with TV talk or it'll NEVER get here.

In other TV news, even though I enjoyed the Cougar Town pilot, I haven't watched a single episode since. Eastwick was starting to bore me by episode 3, and when the cancellation came, it just became one less thing to catch up with. Still watching and enjoying: The Good Wife, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, White Collar, Castle, Dollhouse, etc. My reality shows are all losing their shine this season. I mean, it's been a steady decline over the past few seasons, but this season there hasn't been a truly excellent reality season in the bunch.

tv is my happy place. and my sad place.

This VM fic makes me so happy. It feels like the author is making sense out of all the things I never thought made sense in season 3. Dealt with in this chapter: Duncan, Piz, the FBI. But if you're allergic to WIPs, I'd recommend staying far away from this one. I think it's been over a year since the last update and we're only on chapter four. So, yeah...




Apparently, I have things to say about TV today.

I'm going to save Sons of Anarchy for a separate post so I have time to cap a few episodes and possibly include some visual aids.



I bought myself a new laptop with a touchscreen, and because the software provided had Twitter compatability, I got myself an account. I've been reading it and trying to get the flow of the thing, but I gotta say, I'm still not sure. Even in my one lonely tweet, I still wanted to add about another post's worth. So what's the point if I know myself enough to know I'm too wordy? But add away if you're so inclined! I've added some accounts I recognized, but I'm sure I've missed a ton.

The touchscreen though? AWESOME!

this is my subject line

So, prereleases of the next two Dexter episodes puts me not just barely three episodes behind ("barely" because episode 2x10 aired last night and even if I'd be caught up with the other two, it's not certain that I'd have had time to watch it yet), but FIVE. I don't know why I keep falling behind all the time, I love the show whenever I watch it. Maybe it's that I usually watch stuff on my lunch hour and Dexter just doesn't work for me in the middle of the work day. I usually watch lighter fare, like the Daily Show, Colbert Report (*sniff*) and comedies.



Does anyone else use Google Calendar and Google Documents in conjunction with their gmail? I've been trying to figure out if there's a way to "attach" documents to an item in your calendar, or at least link it to a document in Google Documents, but so far I'm a bit clueless. Is that possible?

don't get any big ideas

In the comments of my post last week there was a discussion about the second (in actual fact, the third) door in Josh's office, and whether anyone ever used it. A lo and behold, in the very next episode I watch (Celestial Navigation for those playing at home) what do I see? That's right, Sam entering through the door. Of course, when I said in the comments that I knew that Sam entered through that door in a scene, that wasn't the scene I was talking about, so I'm still going to have to keep an eye out for that one.



For some reason I fell behind on Dexter and I only just watched the last couple of episodes in the past few days. Collapse )



Here's hoping Long Way Down isn't as late this week as it was last week, because 2 am is really altogether too late to start watching something that's an hour long.

TV all over the place!

After a month of nothing much to watch I suddenly feel inundated with TV this week.


  • First I started working again, which means TV eight hours a day.

  • Then the Emmy nominations came out (I'm pleased Jenna was nominated, but the Emmys have become such a joke that it doesn't really mean anything in the long run).

  • Jon and Stephen are back! And I couldn't be happier about it.

  • And SCREENER season is finally underway (yay!).

  • Finally, Fox put up the last two episodes of Collapse )





In other news, LJ has finally clarified their policy that precipitated Strikethrough '07, making it an officially bannable offense to post explicit smut involving underage characters (ETA: Apparently there may be spoilers for Deathly Hallows in the comments? The post is safe, though). In other words, if you've got NC-17 rated fics featuring early season Buffy/Spike, V/L in or before season 2 (Logan is still 17 well into that season and I'm not sure what they'd consider underage since some states in the US have a legal age of 18 [I'm almost positive, anyway]), pretty much anything and everything HP related (do you think this announcement was timed very very carefully? Because I do.), including drawings/manips of anything that appears to be underage characters in sexually explicit situations (they don't even have to be underage, only appear to be so), underage Wincest, etc, etc, etc, I'd lock it down now, at least as a precaution. Also, might want to take a look at those icons. I'm not worried that kissing will be considered smut, but I've seen some pretty graphic HP stuff.

Way to go, LJ, driving fandom away, one fan at a time...

Sundry

I've tried making an icon out of this scene since...well, since it aired. Now I'm afraid to go look at it on one of my two other monitors because about half of my icons are scrapped because they look like crap on one of my three monitors, and I'm thinking this one will probably be a dud too.

I also uploaded frame-by-frame DVD caps of that scene here. Because I am insane. And I (like to pretend I) have no shame.



I finally figured out a way for me to get through Prison Break: skip anything that has T-Bag, skip most of the things that have to do with any of the convicts who are not related by blood, space out during most of the scenes with the brothers, ignore Michael's Mary Sue-ish tendencies and watch in fascination any time Sara is on-screen.



I've been watching Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares this weekend, because nothing is more entertaining than Gordon Ramsay on a rampage. (Though why does he insist on changing into his work clothes on camera? Trust me, I do NOT want to see his flab.)



Mondays are a good downloading day.

P.S. Is anyone else having issues with LJ? I keep getting errors.

Brazil is playing ummmm, Paraguay, I think, Ecuador (apparently) at my local arena in under an hour (and by local I mean I hear the crowds and if I only had a window in my apartment that faced that way and if I was higher up I could probably watch the game) and there is a lot of activity outside, people scrambling to find parking spaces, no doubt. Which is exactly why my only trek outside today happened much earlier in the afternoon.



I watched some more TV.

The momentum wore off a bit in the two weeks since I saw the premiere, but I'm officially excited for new VM today!

And I'm hoping for lots and lots of picspams in vmpicspam. I was a bit worried when 200 people had friended the comm in 24 hours because I thought my bandwidth would go through the roof. Only...people just linked to outside picspams (except for me and Laura). Now that's not right. I though people who had never done a picspam before might join in because it's so easy when you just have to hotlink. Or is the problem that people don't know exactly how to hotlink/picspam?
