Ramblings about House, Torchwood, and Supernatural

I stayed home from work today because I was sick--some little virusy thing, or else I just really needed to sleep half the day. Sometimes it's hard to tell. But the point is that I was finally home for a long stretch of time in the daylight, so I could watch the five episodes of Supernatural that had piled up on my DVR. Also, I'd gotten a little behind on House, and watched the last two episodes last night, so I got to see Collapse ) within 24 hours. No wonder I had a fever.

I don't have much to say about House and Supernatural, except keep up the good work, basically. I'd forgotten how funny Supernatural is, in amongst the monster and angsty bits. I don't have much to say about Torchwood either, except that it's growing on me although Collapse )

Anyway, way too much TV got watched in the last couple of days, but it was nice to have a break.

Supernatural, House, ST:TOS, and a partridge in a pear tree

I'm avoiding thinking about real-life stuff (minor, aggravating, and time-limited) so I've been watching all kinds of stuff.

Thanks to amireal, who wrote "Where Did All the Physics Go?" awhile back, I've been re-watching old Trek episodes. Leonard McCoy centered ones, which unfortunately are mostly in the dreaded 3rd season. Still, a certain amount of cheesiness is fun. Anyway, one big reason I am fond of classic Trek is the whole Kirk, Spock, & McCoy dynamic. Put the slashes where you will, the friendship is fun. The ep I just watched is the one of extremely long title where McCoy is dying of some incurable disease and Kirk's the only one who knows. The trio get zapped by the Oracle on an asteroid that's really a spaceship (the details are totally unimportant here, just go with it) and McCoy is very slow to regain consciousness. Spock's trying to figure out why, not that he's concerned or anything (right) and Kirk tells him about McCoy's illness. McCoy finally wakes up and makes some kind of joke, and Spock helps him sit up and then keeps his hand on his shoulder, holding him up. The helping him up part doesn't ping McCoy's radar, but then he looks down at Spock's hand when he doesn't move it after a few seconds, and then he gives Kirk a total death glare because he gets it--he knows Jim told Spock. It's a scene of less than 30 seconds, probably, but it shows both Spock's concern and how very well McCoy knows both Kirk and Spock.

So, returning to the 21st century, Supernatural and House (spoilers, in case you couldn't guess):

PS--Back to a show that aired before I was born: I'm starting to think the Man from U.N.C.L.E. slashers are hallucinating. I've seen several eps now, and Napoleon and Ilya are hardly ever even in the same *room!* When they are, though, they do banter nicely, but still. Maybe I haven't seen the right eps yet.

Well, since I got Denise hooked on SGA, it's only fair that she's gotten me hooked on Supernatural.

From the pilot:

Sam: I swore I was done hunting for good.
Dean: Come on, it wasn’t easy, but it wasn’t that bad.
Sam: Yeah? When I told dad I was scared of the thing in my closet he gave me a .45.
Dean: Well, what was he supposed to do?
Sam: I was 9 years old! He was supposed to say “Don’t be afraid of the dark.”
Dean: Don’t be afraid of the dark? What, are you kidding me? Of course you should be afraid of the dark! You know what’s out there!

I feel oddly vindicated. Of course you should be afraid of the dark! I knew it all along.
