αΩ | Φ | nobody said it was easy

Housework

I'm feeling so conflicted right now. I was just offered the job of translating House. On the one hand - good show, on the other hand - medical jargon. I know without even translating a single line that any given episode will mean at least a couple of hours of extra work, just searching for medicines, treatments, illnesses. After thinking about it for an hour (and looking up useful links) I finally said I'd do it, with the caveat that if the workload felt like it would be too much I may have to say no to an episode sometimes. We'll see what happens.

αΩ | Φ | nobody said it was easy

Still bored. I resort to spam.

It's been about a month since the fall season really got under way, so I thought I'd do a recap of what's what and what's not. Viewable, that is.

(I'm just looking at this site, I can't really be sure they've got everything. But I think they do...except they don't have foreign shows, like Hex.)

HOLY CRAP, that was long. And rambly. Oh, and I wonder when Scrubs is returning...

Lots and lots of TV

Been watching a lot of new shows. And old ones too.

I've also been translating Alias season 4, and man, I'd forgotten how much I hate Syd's reaction to Jack killing Irina. Jack probably doesn't help matters by not explaining things, but you'd think after all they've gone through and all he's done for her she'd at least give him a chance. I mean, the man refused to give up his search for her even when it landed him in prison! Ungrateful little bitch... *grumble grumble*



And I've been rewatching Wonderfalls. I only meant to cap an episode, but then I started watching and soon I'll have seen them all again. Out of order, because apparently I wasn't willing to admit I was doing a rewatch so I skipped around.

I really do think Jaye is my favorite female character in a long time. Maybe my favorite female character ever. And the actress has a lot to with it, because she's the reason Jaye can be sarcastic, sad, shocked and happy all in the space of one scene and still be believable.

My favorite part about the show is Jaye's relationship with her family. How she starts off trying to act like they're just a nuisance and ends up realizing how much she loves and needs them. I love the whole screwed-up bunch and the thought of all the missed opportunities there makes me want to cry.

I think the only weakness, at least from my point of view, is Eric. I just find him boring. And I kinda 'ship him and Jaye in the same way I 'ship Mal and Inara - until something better comes along. I think it's the whole "they're destined for each other" thing that I fight against with every fiber of my being. Kinda funny since the whole show is about surrendering to destiny, but there you go.
