Doctor Who:

Also,

"You think you'll just come back to life?" "When don't I?" GROSS UGLY SOBBING;_________________;

I really really really hate the weeping angels. Statues gave me the wiggins as a kid enough as it is and now the angels have only perpetuated that. I was seriously freaked out throughout a good portion of this episode FUCKING BABY ANGELS and just when you think things can't get any creepier the fucking STATUE OF LIBERTY ("I always wanted to visit the Statue of Liberty. I guess she got impatient." LOL)aughhhhh nightmares.

At least they're together in the end, right? Who cares about the Doctor, Rory and Amy are what it's all about. (LOL I remember when they first became companions I thought Rory was stupid and Amy was rude and obnoxiously annoying. I CAN'T ;______;)


I did not find Elementary all that engaging, though there were a few moments where it shined. Will keep watching for now, as long as I don't have as much trouble streaming it as I did today. My laptop doesn't seem to want to stream things at all anymore. I hate downloading everything but it seems that might be my last option.

Revolution makes me l o l. The writing is pretty awful and stilted and the whole family/IT WAS MY JOB TO PROTECT HIM thing just does not work for me like it did with Sam and Dean. Billy Burke is fantastic though and Miles is most definitely the only reason I am willing to continue giving this show a try.

I'm trying to watch 25 shows right now. It's not working out for me so well so far. We'll see.

This has been an update. Happy October, everyone!

I don't always make one of these posts, though I think I did last year, but it occurred to me that I've added a decent amount of friends lately and that I often talk about only two or three shows on a regular basis, but I watch many more, and sometimes people are thrown when I'm like "Oh I know what you're talking about."

Plus I mean, this is me totally procrastinating on attempting to finish a draft for [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang so, there's that. Nope, forget it, attempt is over, I am done trying to write things longer than I am comfortable writing.

Firstly, I use this app to keep track of all my shows, as I mostly don't watch them as they air and they do tend to pile up and I forget what I've seen and haven't seen, it's very easy to just check them off when I'm done. I don't really use the renewal/cancellation guide part of the app, but it's also there.

Using this website as a guide, thank youuu [livejournal.com profile] radiophile for the link.



Shows already airing

Leverage - Leverage is one of those shows I'm not terribly attached to (I've missed two episodes this season) and I don't pay close attention to, but at the same time it's a feel good show that I love watching. I'm not upset when it goes on hiatus and I'm not super excited when it comes back, but I'm always gonna be amused watching it.

White Collar - I feel a similar way about White collar as I do Leverage, I mostly just watch superficially and don't think too much into it, but I do look forward to these episodes every week and I do have an emotional attachment to Neal Caffrey.

Doctor Who - This has just returned and I was...'meh' at the premiere. It neither disappointed me nor astounded me. But I am not a proper Whovian as there are still episodes of 9 and 10 I have never seen, and I like both those Doctors far better than 11, and I have seen all of his episodes.

Longmire - I guess technically this has ended for the season, I've been watching it in chunks several episodes at a time. I doubt I'd be watching it if it wasn't a summer show, as I have enough things to juggle throughout the year, but it's got Katee Sackhoff and the dynamic contrast of Indian Rez police to local cowboy police is one that never fails to interest me.


Returning shows

9/11 - Sons of Anarchy - I am ridiculously excited for this show to come back. Last season was up and down, but also pretty edge of the seat gripping at some points, and I'm so excited to see how Jax handles being the Prez and Tara steps into the role of HBIC and just THE DRAMAAAA DUN DUN DUN I love these fucking assholes.

9/24 - Castle - Another show I am not terribly emotionally attached to and do not think too much about because it is horribly flawed and predictable, but. Nathan Fillion. I'm sure they're going to do something awful to create drama between Castle and Beckett again this season, but just putting them together in the finale made me a happy person all summer.

9/27 - Grey's Anatomy - Honestly I'm not sure why I watch this show anymore, either. Obligation, a lot, but I still do care about the characters and I haven't met a show that made me cry this consistently in a long time. And last season's finale LEXIE ;___; so I'm excited to see the PTSD following that.

9/29 - Merlin - FINALLY we get to the King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table of myth. I am super excited for the potential of this season, but if it's just more "Merlin saves Arthur and covers so Arthur thinks he's an idiot" gags and Arthur doesn't find out about the magic soon, I'm done.

9/30 Once Upon A Time - Last season was very up/down for me and there are a ton of things I didn't like, but...Sebastian Stan. And I was a bit shocked that magic DID return at the end, so I'm curious to see what the plotline for S2 will be.

10/3 - Supernatural - While the plot summary for S8 does not give me warm fuzzies, I am sticking this show out for as long as I can. That's that.

10/14 - The Walking Dead - MICHONNE *____*

2013
Game of Thrones - Just. YESSSSSSSSSSSSS
Lost Girl - Sucked into this show earlier this year. Season one was pretty awesome, Season two actually was a huge let-down by the end, but Dyson has his love back now and Kenzi is still the best Kenzi so.
Shameless - FUCKING GALLAGHERS. Love this show, but also in a "don't think to hard about it" way.


New Shows

9/17 - Revolution - Honestly the plot sounds a little mediocre, though the concept is certainly most relevant to my interests. The trailers for it leave a little to be desired, as well, (not to mention it's on NBC) but its got the Abrams/Kripke/Favreau trifecta behind it, so I'm definitely giving it a shot.

9/27 - Elementary - I don't know if I'll give this a shot. I've never actually been all that into Sherlock Holmes before the BBC show and RDJ's face in the movies, so the draw at the plot isn't really there. Also I don't like Lucy Liu (i know, blasphemy.) Also I'm already annoyed with how this show is EVERYWHERE I look and it hasn't even premiered yet thanks for ruining it for me. But I've also heard good things, so I might give it a shot.

10/10 - Arrow - Everything I know about Green Arrow I learned from Justin Heartley and Wikipedia. But you hand me a show about a badass archer AND stick John Barrowman in it, and I'll be watching.

10/10 - Nashville - I don't know about this one, but I think I'm gonna try it out at least for a few episodes.

2013 - Dracula - ?? I've heard nothing about this and it's on NBC so that's potential for fail right there, but I'm also intrigued by a tv show about Dracula so. I'll be looking for more info.

Other shows I watch not on the list
- Legend of Korra - Sorely disappointe by the reveal of Amon last season and Korra getting all her Avatar powers back, but also looking forward to a fresh start in S2.
- Whatever Avengers cartoon replaces Earth's Mightiest Heroes (RIP ;___;)
- Downton Abbey - COME BACK TO ME
- BBC Sherlock - COME BACK TO ME


Shows I don't think I'll be watching

10/2 - Hart of Dixie - I haven't watched the last three episodes from last season. It was a cute show and I love Rachel Bilson, but I don't have time for a show in which I think all the characters are stupid.

10/17 - American Horror Story - I may give this one a try, idk, it'll depend on word of mouth, but I am not actually one for horror stories, so probably not. I only got sucked in to last season because of Tate and Violet, a storyline that went WAAAAAAAAAY the other direction of what was comfortable, which was nice.

winter 2012 - Misfits - Nope, done with this show. While I'll admit, the follow-through of Simon and Alisha's story was a nice surprise, the departure of them and Kelly is enough to make me stop watching. I did not like Rudy and I do not like Curtis. Done.

Shows I'll watch on Netflix and am therefor always a season behind on but still care about
Vampire Diaries
Fringe
Nikita
Archer

Shows my parents watch that I sometimes catch episodes of and still have some clue about
The Mentalist - Simon Baker let me love you.
The Good Wife
Criminal Minds
NCIS - The season premiere for this looks wicked. DUCKY ;__;
NCIS:LA
Hawaii 5-0
Bones
Touch


Yep, that's a lot to keep up with. I don't know how people watch so many shows. And m god this post took forever.
alwaysenduphere: (tron//a leaf on the wind)
+ I don't really want to talk about last week's Supernatural, if only to say I was really enjoying it until it ended, and then for about seventeen hours, I hated Dean Winchester for the first time. I've gotten over that and maybe come to an understanding of his actions, but am choosing to pretty much ignore that episode until the ramifications of his actions (hopefully) show through in the next episode.

+ Boyfriend and I went to see The Lion King in 3D on Friday (okay basically I dragged him to see it, and I paid and everything and jfc 3D is expensive) Literally the moment Circle of Life started playing there were tears rolling down my cheeks. It's like...it was kind of like Toy Story, how Andy grew up and gave his toys away (you know you cried at that part), I felt the same way. The Lion King is the first movie I recall seeing in theaters, and even that memory is a little shaky, but it was like truly reliving my childhood for 89 minutes, except this time I'd already seen it enough times to know every single moment in the movie from the dialogue to the music cues to the phallic symbols in the stars.

There was a little boy several rows behind us, however, who did not, and after the stampede and Simba's crying, he said, "Where's his daddy?" And then when Scar walked up and the little boy said, "Scar is a baaaaaaaaaad man." Then Simba runs off, you know, and stumbles into the desert, etc etc, then when Timon and Pumba find him the little boy said again, "But where's his daddy?" And he kept asking it through the movie, and each time I had to choke back a sob.


+ I'm absolutely trying to watch too much new television right now and succeeding miserably. American Horror Story is the latest show I've picked up, and while I'm not so much a horror fan, I am a fan of Dylan McDermott's ass, so I'll be watching more of it. Pan Am is absolutely adorable, if not totally sexist and 60s cliched, but I'm terribly fond of Collette and the overwhelming sense of adventure of the show, so I'll keep watching it. I watch all my CW shows 4 days after they air, as that's when they hit the CW mobile app and I can watch them at work: Ringer, The Secret Circle, and Hart of Dixie. They're all mediocre (Hart of Dixie is adorable as a bonus) but I'm still curious enough to keep watching. The Playboy Club already is canceled so goodbye there, and I haven't managed to catch a full episode of Terra Nova though I am mighty curious. IDK, eventually I'll fall behind somewhere and not bother to catch up, but I have no idea which show it'll be that gets the cut.

+ i was trying to find one of those tumblr graphics with sam winchester and simba together on it, I KNOW THEY EXIST, but i apparently tagged them something funny. :|
