i don't wanna work

I am so not in the mood to work today. Yesterday, I was quite productive. Today, not at all. So, here's a meme :D

Which TV shows did you start watching in 2011?
Once Upon a Time, The Secret Circle, Suits, Grimm, The New Girl, 2 Broke Girls, Community, 18 to Life, Almost Heroes, Misfits, Downton Abbey, Happy Endings, Storage Wars.

Which TV shows did you let go of in 2011?
18 to Life & Almost Heroes -- finished in 2011. Misfits & Downton Abbey -- after watching the first eps, I never went back to them but I will at some point! Grimm & The Secret Circle -- lost interest.

Which TV shows did you mean to get into but didn't in 2011?
Game of Thrones and Camelot. Camelot has already been cancelled so that's off the list. I've got GoT on the computer and I think I'm going to tackle them over New Year's.

Which TV shows do you intend on checking out in 2012?
The only one that comes to mind is Smash.

Which TV show impressed you least in 2011?
Whitney & 2 Broke Girls -- don't find neither show that funny but will still watch if nothing else is on.

Which TV show do you think you might let go of in 2012 unless things significiantly improve?
When I get into a show, I'm usually in for the long run (still watching HIMYM for goodness sakes!) but I can see letting go of Once Upon a Time and H5-0 asneither show is Must See TV. I'm already losing interest in H5-0. Chuck will end in 2012.

Which TV shows do you think you'll never let go of no matter how crappy they get?
Well, never say never cause who'd've thought I would have given up on SPN? Glee's already so cracky but as long as keep on with awesome musical numbers, I'm there.

meme answer

faninohio asked this: What 5 characters do you dislike the most in your favorite fandoms?

Thinking of 5 was pretty hard. I'm the type of person where I tend to like everyone in my fandoms. If I disliked a character a lot, I simply stop watching the show (see: Meredith, Grey's Anatomy and Marisa, The O.C.).

1. Rose Tyler, Doctor Who. Perhaps I was expecting too much considering, at that time, all I read was how awesome and wonderful Rose was and Rose+Doctor=OTP4EVA!!!!! I also started in the DW fandom with Series 3 and I LOVED Martha but the constant comparison to Rose (in canon & fanon) and how no one could be as brilliant as Rose... UGH UGH UGH. But really, Rose grated on my nerves. I hated how she treated Mickey. I hated how cliquey the Doctor & her got, like they knew they were awesome and let us make you feel like an outsider with our cute little inside jokes and whatnot. And then fact that RTD just wouldn't let her go! I also don't get the appeal of Billie Piper. At all.

2. Castiel, Supernatural. This is more of a 'too much of a good thing'. I liked Castiel at first. But then he kept coming back, more and more frequently until he was made a series regular! But I think what got to me the most was the fandom. For a fandom that constantly harps on SPN for being misogynistic, it sure loves to hate 99.9% of the female characters -- "I don't want no stupid female to come between Dean & Sam!! This show is about brothers!" -- but introduce a good-looking male portrayed by an actor who enjoys playing up to the fandom, the chorus of "OMG Dean/Castiel is soooo hawt! Sam who? Get rid of Sam, we want our D/C!!!!" really annoyed me.

3. Uther Pendragon, Merlin. It said "your favourite fandoms" and Merlin is one of my faves. So, if I had choose someone, it would be Uther. His "all magic is evil and must be destroyed" stance is getting tired and old. There hasn't been a lot of growth/progression with this character over the last 2 seasons. Here's hoping for S3.

4. Rebecca, Oli/Christian fandom. This character is just plain annoying. Her insipid crush on Christian was stupid and lame. Most of the blame goes to the writers -- if one character falls in love with another character who is already in a relationship, then one would expect a storyline involving a love triangle or evil!third party trying to break up established couple or something. This is a soap opera after all. But none of those things happened with Rebecca. She just mooned over Christian for months on end. Booooooooring.

5. Kate, White Collar. We never found out much about Kate so I never understood why Neal would risk so much her. Why were they even in relationship? And then the show blew her up. Buh-bye.


Something different from the preceding fandom rant-age. Have some happy, my fellow DOWs! Video of Zac's Details photoshoot:

BBC's 100 book list

Snagged from neeuqdrazil

Bold the ones you've read COMPLETELY, italicize the ones you've read part of. Watching the movie or the cartoon doesn't count. Abridged versions don't count either. BTW, according to the BBC if you've read 7 of these, you are above the average.

Added something just for me -- underline books I haven't read but own (which means it will be read... someday)

redford was a hottie

From my f-list: What was the #1 song the day you were born? Google the date and #1 song and then post your #1 song on your LJ - preferably with a Youtube vid if you can find one!

According to Billboard, the #1 song in the US on my day of birth was:

Confession: the first time I actually listened to Barbra Streisand was only about 2-3 years ago. While I knew she was a great singer, her voice blew me away. It's freaking gorgeous. I still haven't seen any of her movies though. I've got Funny Girl on the computer so at least I'll get to that one.

Icon meme snagged from shadow_of_doubt

Look at your LJ userpics list. If you have fewer than 50 icons, pick every fifth one. If you have between fifty and seventy-five icons, pick every seventh one. If you have over seventy-five icons, pick every tenth one. If you have fewer than ten, pick all of 'em. List them on your LJ, and tell everyone exactly why you have it, why it's interesting to you, what significance does it have.
