sherrilina: (Arya Stark (Game of Thrones))
Ugh once again I find myself angry and disappointed by the Emmy nominations, I don't know why I even bother to expect anything different...*sigh*

My main beef is the way The Borgias once again got snubbed in all of the major categories, especially acting when such average performances as Mr. Bates, Anna, and the Earl of Grantham got recognized, what the hell?! I mean I love me some Downton Abbey, even enjoyed season 2 unlike most of fandom, but it certainly did not deserve to get SO many awards, especially at the expense of better shows that were ignored. (And if they wanted to insist on giving it that many acting ones, they couldn't have given nods to the more talented cast members like Laura Carmichael?) Michelle Dockery can get it though, hope she wins. And I hope The Borgias at least win in some of the technical categories it was nominated in, like music (the music in the finale was stunning) and costumes...should have been nominated for art direction too (one of the most beautiful shows I've ever seen), but oh well. It irritates me though when I see people complaining that Game of Thrones got screwed over or "hosed" because hello, YOU GOT BEST DRAMA AND BEST ACTOR THAT IS PRETTY MAJOR FOR A GENRE SHOW! /rant

Also rooting for Community to win for "Remedial Chaos Theory" (glad it got that at least, ugh) and for Veep (which was very funny and deserved recognition, though I feel it had a big advantage being on HBO, which seems to be where the nominators look first regardless of quality). And I was delighted to see Portlandia nominated for "One Episode More" (the BSG epp, and the only one I've seen actually, lol), because it is so accurate and clever! ;) But yeah, I don't think I will be watching, as usual. It's funny, I watch so much TV these days, and yet the Oscars are still a much bigger deal for me.


+ After 2.5 months of working on it, I finally finished reading Game of Thrones! Unfortunately too late to read the copy of ACOK I borrowed from my GG-and-GoT-loving classmate, since there's only 2 weeks (!!) left in the program and she moves away right after...but I'll find it somewhere else. I'm just happy to be finally done, each of these are so damn long it feels like a real accomplishment, lol.

I was impressed by how well they condensed this monster into the TV show and keep it mostly faithful. I wonder though, will we ever learn more about certain things like Rhaegar and Lyanna (what did she want Ned to promise her?), etc? Because that was a bit of intriguing backstory for me that was mostly cut from the show and which I wanted to know about...and then Ned died before dreaming more about it. :/ But looking back, I do think that aside from Roz and the sexposition scenes a lot of the things HBO added improved on the book, like showing Renly and Loras (explaining why he decided to contest for the crown and showing their relationship) and giving us more insights into Cersei, like that scene with Robert...

And of course Dany/Drogo was waaaay more shippable in the show, IMO, aside from the first scene. I found in interesting the way HBO changed that one scene where she tries to convince her husband to try to take the Iron Throne for her, making it into that intimate scene of her doing his hair when in the book they've just finished sex--amazed that HBO didn't take advantage of that for their usual female nudity quota! Also just the acting, the pain and panic in his voice when he almost lost her, which doesn't translate as well in the books...

One thing I found just as shippable though (if unrequited) was Dany/Ser Jorah...loved how desperate he was in the end when he thought she was going to kill herself! Honestly I don't find much that's shippable in this book so I have to go with what I can. Likewise Jon Snow was JUST as annoying and emo and useless in the book as on the show, contrary to what I had heard. The only way the books are better is that on the show he looks like he's in his mid-20s while he's acting 15, which makes it all so much worse.

Oh and it was nice to have everyone's names spelled out this time, made it easier to follow than it is on the show...for example I totally did not catch that the guy who torments Jon Snow on the wall, Yoren, was the same guy who helped Arya escape from King's Landing. And getting Sansa's inner voice was very interesting, you can better see how her whole worldview changes...


From a cursory flip-through ACOK though, did they move all the Jaimie and Brienne stuff from SoS into season 2 then? :s Since I notice they didn't have POV chapters in book 2...

+ I also finally finished watching Arrested Development for the first time, after starting it on Netflix about a year ago, lol. I hadn't known s3 wasn't a full season so the end took me by surprise....not sure how I feel about some of the twists, but it made for a good finale. I kind of worry about how the "new" season will be, thought it's neat they are actually bringing it back!

+ And finally I snagged this "Guess the Ship" meme from [livejournal.com profile] rosaxx50 (I meant to do this when it emerged like a year ago, but um better late than never):

(1) Think of 15 ships you support.
(2) List them using descriptions of the characters involved rather than their names.
(3) Have your f-list guess as many of the ships as they can.


1) London teen helps war survivor heal from trauma as they hold hands through time and space. (Doctor/Rose guessed by [livejournal.com profile] sunnytyler001)

2) Brother and sister are each other's romantic ideals and the only other ones who understand each other's literary references. (Cesare/Lucrezia guessed by [livejournal.com profile] sunnytyler001)


3) Co-dependent king and ward are miserable without each other's love despite their ever greater clashes of wills. (Uther/Morgana guessed by [livejournal.com profile] sunnytyler001)

4) He continues to see and interact with his non-human girlfriend after her death, sometimes holding hands with thin air in public. (Jeremy/Anna guessed by [livejournal.com profile] rosaxx50)

5) A pair of young people from very different parts of the city find companionship and love through mutual intellectual interests. (Dan/Blair guessed by [livejournal.com profile] rosaxx50)

6) Two curly-haired dead flatmates feel alive when they're together. (Mitchell/Annie guessed by [livejournal.com profile] sunnytyler001)

7) A couple of pirates with intense chemistry are more alike than either is willing to admit. (Jack/Elizabeth guessed by [livejournal.com profile] rosaxx50)

8) An egoist unexpectedly falls in love with someone besides himself; she falls for him too despite her mission and beliefs. (Gaius/Six guessed by [livejournal.com profile] blasterboy606)

9) He makes her feel warm and whole and helps her cope with a devastating loss; she breaks his heart. (Jacob/Bella guessed by [livejournal.com profile] rosaxx50)

) He's rebelling against Heaven, she seeks power through the Church; when they're not trying to kill each other, they make out. (Marisa/Asriel guessed by [livejournal.com profile] rosaxx50)

11) Two nerds can relate to each other's pasts of unleashing apocalypses through hubris and alliances with demons. (*~SASSY~* guessed by [livejournal.com profile] probing_grays)

12) Two best friends often know what the other is thinking without speaking a word and are fiercely loyal to one another. (Harry/Hermione guessed by [livejournal.com profile] rosaxx50)

13) A criminal mastermind and a female police agent gradually develop friendship and romantic feelings despite being different species from different worlds. (Artemis/Holly guessed by [livejournal.com profile] hmsharmony)

14) Two kids grow closer while fighting in a war together, but are still too shy and awkward to ask each other to the school dance. (Jake/Cassie guessed by [livejournal.com profile] probing_grays)

15) A warrior and a seer become best friends and then something more, though outside forces prevent them from ever being together. (Cordy/Angel guessed by [livejournal.com profile] rosaxx50)

First off, in my last post I meant to thank [livejournal.com profile] cuposunny and [livejournal.com profile] decadentdream for the holiday cards, [livejournal.com profile] thedoingofit and [livejournal.com profile] kilodalton for the vgifts, and [livejournal.com profile] nbaeker for the adorable holiday Treehaus fic! *hugs* I should have all of my cards sent off by tomorrow, I'm trying to finish them tonight (yes, I'm late, whatever! :p)

Anyway, has everyone seen the season 2 trailer for The Borgias yet? So epic-looking, even if some of the hairstyling looks a bit off (dammit Cesare, curly hair is evidently not for you! O_o)...I'd been dying for this, realizing that the s1 trailer had come out around this time last year, so I was so pleased we did finally get it! A few more thoughts:

Show me your hands, Cesare. Is it true what the rumors say, that they are stained with blood? )

I've needed this show back in my life like last week, is it April yet?! I'm excited for the fandom to pick up again in full swing as well...

I also realize I never quite got around to posting my thoughts on s1 here after the premiere (fail, self, fail), so I thought I'd repost my answers to The Borgias Season 1 in Review Meme I wrote for/posted on [livejournal.com profile] cesare_lucrezia last May:

So I snagged this meme from [livejournal.com profile] emo_dj_steph AGES ago, and have been working on it forever (which has been interesting since the ships have really moved around and changed over time--Caroline/Tyler appeared on the first list then moved to the second list then moved back up to the first list in the space of me starting and finishing this meme, Cesare/Lucrezia appeared on the first list then disappeared then appeared again, Dan/Blair made a brief appearance on the first list and Chuck/Blair appeared on the second list, etc), since any meme that requires more effort than bolding or ticky apparently takes me forever to complete...*facepalm* Also some of these questions were tricky for me, like "Ships you're curious about but don't ship", since everything I'm really curious about/interested in I tend to ship! But tonight for some reason I felt in the mood to finish this once and for all (and have stayed up far too late doing so, ugh, priorities, I need them), so here it is!

Major spoilers for s3 Being Human, s2 DW, and s2 Merlin, minor spoilers for Supernatural, Vampire Diaries, and The Borgias:

Ships that I do and do not ship... )

And while I'm at it, here's a Character Meme as well!  Pick any character from a fandom of mine and I'll answer the following questions:

    1) What is your opinion of this character? If you like, explain why you like him/her.
    2) Is he/she important to the general plot?
    3) Can you relate to this character at all? Does he/she grip you emotionally?
    4) How much do you like the fandom that this character comes from?
    5) Do you ship this character with any other character? Or, are you particularly intrigued by his/her relationship with any other character(s)? (romance-wise or platonic)
    6) Is there anything about the character you would change?
    7) If you were in the fandom with this character or knew this character in real life, how would you see yourself interacting with him/her?
    8) Does this character make the cut as one of your all time favorites (if you like) or least favorites?
    9) Would you hype up this character (if you like) or warn about this character (if you dislike) to someone new to fandom?
    10) Is this character popular with the fanbase?</em>

(Of course it might take me a while, erm, but it will happen, lol! ;))

sherrilina: (Mitchell/Annie: Love of my life (BH))
I can't believe it's already been over two weeks since the Being Human season 3 finale....what a first week it was for me too! O_o  I don't think a finale has ever destroyed, upset, confused, and angered me as much as this one did (my first thought after it finished airing was "I HATE THIS SHOW!!!" ;_;), and it's probably good that I had a few weeks to mull it over and rewatch it and discuss it thoroughly across fandom before recording my thoughts here (although I did start this post a week after it aired, even if I'm only finishing it now).  As much emotional turmoil as the finale caused me, it also heightened my obsession with the show (and Mitchell/Annie)--much of the first post-finale week I was basically eating, sleeping (or rather, not sleeping but staying up too late watching YT videos or whatnot...:/), and breathing BH, lol.  Rewatching old random  epps from all seasons along with a gazillion Mitchell/Annie vids on YT (lol), Tumbling BH and M/A-related posts like no tomorrow, discussing and debating, finally creating a M/A iPod playlist and planning out a M/A fanmix and thinking up a bunch of M/A vid ideas (assuming I can ever get some working software again), icon-hunting (finally replaced the last default M/A icon with one I liked better and got myself this new second one)...I even finally watched the original BH Pilot for the first time and caught up on the US BH!  In short, the first week or so immediately after the finale this show and the Mitchell/Annie ship were completely eating my brain and owning my soul respectively...;)

Anyway, here are my thoughts, which have been somewhat tempered since my initial reactions, but I still stand firm on certain issues (MAJOR 3x08 spoilers, obviously!):

You were the love of my long life... )

Phew, good to finally get that done and out of the way, lol...hopefully tomorrow now I will be posting about my new obsession filling the hole in my life that BH left behind! ;)

I've been meaning to update about the past few episodes, and I figure I better do it before tonight....God I am so nervous and scared for tonight, I can't even....O_o  I think I'm even more anxious than I was for the season 5 SN finale, since we a) don't know for sure if this is the last epp or not (even though it probably isn't) and b) Aidan Turner having to film "The Hobbit" means he potentially couldn't be on the show if they didn't delay things for him, unlike in the case of Misha with the SN finale.  In any case, I am going to be on pins and needles until I watch the epp (which may not be tonight, though I will probably end up dling it anyway and then hating myself tomorrow morning when I'm all sleep deprived), although I am also really looking forward to it at the same time, because I am desperate to see how everything gets resolved and explained, and it just looks completely epic and amazing!  (And one non-spoilery review basically said just that, and that it would make the Internets explode!).

Thoughts on 3x04-3x05:

You and me...it’s for eternity. Really forever. )

And now for my 3x07 thoughts and fears...

I'd tear the world apart... )

I've also been watching a lot of Mitchell/Annie vids since seeing 3x07 and thinking about them and you know, I don't care what has happened, or what will happen, these two still own my soul---they are epic and wonderful and would still make an excellent couple if they can survive this and I will still cling to my last shreds of hope....<3333  (And I will still make my Mitchell/Annie vid sometime, but it will probably seem more bittersweet now...:/ )

Man am I loving Being Human right now! <3333  It's so nice to be so excited about and pleased by the show, after all the disappointment last season....

So first of all, here is my spoilery reaction to 3x03, which I only saw the second half of because of stream issues, but whatever, it was great to see it live, and I loved what I saw...

Do you forgive me? )

And then here are my thoughts on 3x02, lol, since I was very fail in posting this week, oops! O_o

Who wants some of my plant?! )

I also have been continuing to watch the US remake of BH, since it did get sooo much more tolerable/better in the second episode...

A few quick US BH remake thoughts 1x02-1x03 )

Oh and on another note of squee and glory and good news, they're FINALLY releasing a Being Human OST for seasons 1 and 2--about damn time!!!! :D  You can already buy and dl the mp3 here (though I hope it comes to iTunes US soon).  I still wish they could include the Epic Music of Epicness from 3x01, but I'm happy I'll finally be able to get my hands on "A Wonderful Thing", aka the awesome recap music this season. (I've been listening to the preview a lot since I found this, lol).

This meme has recently been going around some parts of my flist, and dedicated/hopeless shipper that I am, obviously I couldn't resist! ;)  Just vote in the poll for the ships of mine that you also like.  Since I have a ridiculous number of things I ship I tried to limit this list to pairings I feel/felt more passionate/strongly about, though the list still ended up being way too long, lol.[Poll #1673927]

Brownie points to anyone who gets the more obscure literary ones! ;)  Also note the high volume of d00med!ships in this list, lol...

God, this episode, I CAN'T EVEN....it was just SO incredible and amazing and perfect, with everything I have ever loved about this show wrapped up into one fantastic episode--it's definitely the best premiere so far, and one of the best episodes of the series to be sure! <333  This was me in gif form immediately after I finished the epp, lol! ;) I stayed up too late waiting for the dl and watching it (there are disadvantages to being an hour ahead), and only got like 3 hours of sleep that night, but it was completely worth it! :D  I'm just so happy that not only is my show back, but in such fantastic form (unlike the major disappointments at the beginning of last season)...

I've been so wrapped up in rewatching and squeeing over this epp around fandom that it's taken me a while to collect my thoughts in a somewhat coherent form, lol, not to mention collect gifs of the episode from various talented people on LJ for ~illustration purposes.  So here are my thoughts, late as they are, and feel free to skip the shippy stuff if you so desire, I do have other stuff to say about the epp further down! ;)

I'm coming to get you! )

So a promising start to the season to be sure, I absolutely can't wait for next week to see what happens next! :)  Oh show, I am so happy with you right now....<3333  I might give this epp another rewatch to cheer up if this week's SN depresses me too much! ;)

The excellent quality of this episode after watching the lame premiere of the US remake made the latter seem even weaker and sillier in comparison (like, why would you waste your time on this, when this EPICNESS is going on over here in the original?!).  Since then I've seen the second episode of the remake, which was a lot better than the first (though it was also more of a scene-by-scene replica of the original, lifting entire dialogue and even exact camera angles from BH 1x01), but still, it just doesn't compare!

Oh and for those who saw this episode, please tell me if you think that the Epic Music of Epicness in *that* scene near the end has strains of "The Ballad of Ianto Jones" in it, if you listen starting @ 2:37 or so...when I was listening to the latter earlier today I suddenly went, "Wait a minute..." and then re-watched (for the millionth and first time, lol) That Scene from 3x01 to double-check the music there...at least [livejournal.com profile] blue_emotion agrees with me, and I'd like to hear other opinions on this matter! :p (I'm a soundtrack nerd, what can I say?)

God, this episode, I CAN'T EVEN....it was just SO incredible and amazing and perfect, with everything I have ever loved about this show wrapped up into one fantastic episode--it's definitely the best premiere so far, and one of the best episodes of the series to be sure! <333  This was me in gif form immediately after I finished the epp, lol! ;) I stayed up too late waiting for the dl and watching it (there are disadvantages to being an hour ahead), and only got like 3 hours of sleep that night, but it was completely worth it! :D  I'm just so happy that not only is my show back, but in such fantastic form (unlike the major disappointments at the beginning of last season)...

I've been so wrapped up in rewatching and squeeing over this epp around fandom that it's taken me a while to collect my thoughts in a somewhat coherent form, lol, not to mention collect gifs of the episode from various talented people on LJ for ~illustration purposes.  So here are my thoughts, late as they are, and feel free to skip the shippy stuff if you so desire, I do have other stuff to say about the epp further down! ;)

I'm coming to get you! )

So a promising start to the season to be sure, I absolutely can't wait for next week to see what happens next! :)  Oh show, I am so happy with you right now....<3333  I might give this epp another rewatch to cheer up if this week's SN depresses me too much! ;)

[livejournal.com profile] francy_m79  mentioned doing this today on BF, and decided it might be something fun to think about and quickly post here...

In this list I'm going to leave out some old children's shows I think, or it'd be too hard, though I do want to send some shout-outs to "Arthur" (which pwns Merlin any day in terms of character development and continuity!), "Sabrina," "Clarissa Explains it All," and "So Weird"!  I'm also leaving out shows I've only seen like an episode or 2 of randomly on TV...

I watch too much TV these days... )

Let me know if there's anything big I forgot that you know I watch, and feel free to pimp shows you think I should add to my last list here...;)

And on a random note, I have the strangest urge to watch an episode of GG right now, lol....maybe I will, one less episode to catch up on at Christmas!
