sherrilina: (Cersei Lannister (ASOIAF/GoT))
Another week, another GoT episode review (since it is the only show I seem able to keep up with on here anymore, ironically). My thoughts on this highly anticipated episode:

ONLY CAT )

+ I also realize that I still have yet to jot down my thoughts about Orphan Black here, and since we are already halfway through s2 I suppose I might as well do so now:

You make me cry, sestra )

TL;DR: Orphan Black is by far one of the strongest shows I'm currently watching, so anyone who hasn't seen it yet should check it out! ;) I am glad that still has 5 more episodes to go...

+ Seeing [livejournal.com profile] wheater and now [livejournal.com profile] horatios watching BSG for the first time (yay!) has made me want to properly rewatch the show episode by episode, which I have never done before; I tend to watch the miniseries and first episode, then skip to "Six Degrees of Separation" and the episodes right after, then skip to mid-season 2, and then skip around season 3 a lot. (Or especially certain scenes within season 3). Basically all the Gaius Baltar and Gaius/Six scenes, lol. ;) I kind of wish I could have a cut of the entire series with just scenes of him and other characters I care most about And why not now, when this month is the two year anniversary of me watching the show in the first place! ;) I am now well into season 1, good thing we're entering summer hiatus.

 
sherrilina: (Cesare/Lucrezia: Team BAMF (The Borgias))
Showtime just canceled The Borgias, fuck everything! >:( I'm just so devastated and depressed and angry right now, I can't even. ;_; Please hold me.



The Borgias is one of the best shows on TV with some of the most consistent quality, and it's just not fair it couldn't get its last season or even a wrap-up movie to finish the storyline, when so many lesser shows meanwhile keep getting renewed and stay on the air forever. It's not fair that The Tudors got 4 seasons when it wasn't as good throughout (and I did love that show too). And so many people were just getting into the show too, and it was finally gaining traction on ONTD! :( I thought having a movie instead of a full season would be bad, but knowing that there are only two more episodes is so much worse. It's too soon! Why couldn't they have announced this earlier, so we were better prepared if it was going to happen anyway? Although I was fearing the worst...I was going to post a prayer circle for the show tonight, but guess that's not needed now! :/ I am glad they said it before the finale, so that we know going in...and I guess it's lucky that since it's history we know what will happen to the characters without the show continuing.

BUT this is my favorite show and my main fandom, and idek what I'm going to do right now. I seriously wish I could trade in the renewals for my other on-the-bubble shows for this one, the only one that really ultimately mattered to me--those pleasant surprises now just taste bitter to me. I'm also annoyed and sad that this last season of fandom was ruined by the early release system and that asshole who kept leaking things so early (especially when they leaked 3x08 and 3x09 at the same time, what the fuck was that? We should have known it was the end I guess), throwing off discussion and pulling fandom apart, making it impossible to enjoy Tumblr and stuff at the same time because of all the spoilers. I felt I wasn't able to have as full a fandom experience as the last two seasons through no fault of the people in fandom, but the distribution, and just ugh. I wish we could all watch the episodes together, like previous seasons...so help me, if they leak 3x10 early...>:(

But whatever, it was fun while it lasted, I guess. I will always have fond memories of the fandom and the good friends I made in it. <33 I will always love endlessly staring at the beautiful gifs of Cesare and Lucrezia being tender and sexy together, and I think they will remain one of my top OTPs of all time--I'm glad they at least became canon before the end. I will always remember creating and running a comm for the first (and probably last) time in my life--I think a large part of my sadness is at the thought of [livejournal.com profile] cesare_lucrezia's inevitable death now that the shown is over, even though it was slowing down a bit because of the LJ exodus anyway. Thanks to my lovely co-creator and mod [livejournal.com profile] lucyskyx--I'm glad our idea worked out for a while (and that we managed to become the primary C/L LJ comm, muahaha--there was some Borgias-worthy competition at the beginning! ;)). And thanks to everyone who participated there and helped make it a community, and who discussed The Borgias with me here/put up with all my ramblings!

I was going to post tonight about the last few GoT epps but whatever, forget the Red Wedding, this is waaay more traumatic. Not that I ever felt devastated by it anyway, between spoilers and it being too built up in fandom to live up to expectations . In short, if anyone has any happy or funny gifs or something rn though, please share. :( I haven't been this upset over an early cancelation since Moonlight. Now I feel almost too sad to watch 3x09, which I had been planning to do tonight.

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:

The Borgias Season 1 in Review Meme: Cesare/Lucrezia Edition )

Speaking of TV in review, here's a general TV meme I snagged from [livejournal.com profile] sunnytyler001:

My TV-watching habits of 2011 )

sherrilina: (Boo You Whore Luci (SN))
Man, this seems to be "Characters Making Annoying Questionable Decision" Week on my TV Shows, it applies to all of them! :/ Though still a few good episodes besides that.

Let's start with SN, which I only watched last night, since I was busy marathoning s6 with [livejournal.com profile] paradisekendra on Friday, lol...(good times, and I like the DVD case art, the back of the plastic part has a promo of the OT3...;_;):

For all we know he's road-tripping with Lucifer somewhere! )

Also a few additional thoughts and ~feelings~ on Cas and his prospects, especially after the Gamble interviews last weeks...O_o

Some spoilers for the final Animorphs book if you care )

I've been really enjoying Vampire Diaries so far this season, but I see some of the same ~issues as last season are already cropping up....:/

There's going to be nine other people that brought chili )

I also broke down and watched the premiere of Merlin s4 at least....

His heart is broken, and his spirit is gone )

And then there was much worse writing fail and even more annoying questionable decisions in the Doctor Who finale last weekend (Happy DW Day, btw!), but I won't even go into that here because this post is long enough as it is....

Oh and with GG this week Dan/Blair were of course flawless as always, and really the only thing of interest left on this show, they just need to get together already, and I wish Chuck would crawl off and die in a hole with nobody caring about him. *sigh*

Here is Part 2 of my BosCon experiences, photos, and videos (find my report on Friday/Saturday of the Con here), the best part: Jared, Misha, and Mishalecki galore! :D

I'm sorry about this guy... )


I must say, this convention also revitalized my love for SN a lot, and after getting home I've begun rewatching SN epps instead of continuing my DW rewatch.  The many shitty SN fanvids I saw in between panels has also inspired me creatively, lol, it almost makes me want to sort out my program situation and begin vidding again. 

 
sherrilina: (Sam and Cas (Supernatural))
So as many of you know, this past weekend I had the privilege of attending BosCon (a Supernatural Convention) along with [livejournal.com profile] queen_insane and [livejournal.com profile] emo_dj_steph (whom I greatly enjoyed meeting with in person at last!), and it was AMAZING! :D  I'm so thankful that I had this opportunity to finally go to one of these things while the show was still ongoing (yay season 7!), and to see Jared and Misha there together (even if Jensen wasn't there)--those two are so ridiculously hilarious and adorable, I could just watch them all day, their panels are far too short!  (If I were to ever go to a Con in the future, unlikely as that is, I might just go to their day, definitely the best part).  And gah, they definitely did not disappoint me in the Mishalecki Hijinks department during their panel, I got all I had wanted to see and more. ;)  

But everyone else was great too, I really enjoyed seeing and hearing from Alona Tal, Richard Spreight, Jr, Matt Cohen, Traci Dinwiddle, and Chad Lindberg!  It was just unreal to see all of these people in person...and even more so now seeing clips and gifs of it around Tumblr and being able to think, "I was actually there, I saw this live!" :D

Anyway, below is my full experience during the con, along with some highlights of the many, many photos and videos I took during it (which are mainly to blame for my delay in doing this post, as well as for why I had to break it up into multiple posts), if anyone is interested:

Friday and Saturday with Chad, Alona, Traci, Matt, and Richard )

For Sunday with Jared and Misha's panels, see my next post! :)

 
sherrilina: (Ten (Doctor Who))
So tonight I'm pimping two different land/challenge communities that both have to do with the BBC/British Television:  [livejournal.com profile] merlin_land  and [livejournal.com profile] bbcland!

First there's [livejournal.com profile] merlin_land, where I am a proud co-Team Leader (along with the lovely [livejournal.com profile] blue_emotion) of the resident Team HBIC, otherwise known as Team Morgana! ;)


(banner by....[livejournal.com profile] blue_emotion.  Maker of all banners it seems...;))

Basically if you enjoy Merlin, or have ever done so in the past (and perhaps still wish to remain involved in the fandom even if you are no longer into the show so much, as in my case), if you enjoy doing fanart/fanfic/whathaveyou or discussing or just playing games, if you're looking for new friends in the fandom (I made several of my closest LJ friends on this comm!), if you just want to have FUN, then this is a place for you! :)  There are all kinds of different challenges for everyone, as you compete on different teams (Morgana, Merlin, Arthur) to get the most points.  Really, I'd say 90% of my creative output for Merlin has resulted from this comm, which pushed me to really write/complete fanfic for the first time, my first picspams, etc.

Then there's [livejournal.com profile] bbcland, which is similar to [livejournal.com profile] merlin_land (and you can do Merlin-related things), except that you can also play around with other BBC/British TV fandoms....like this:



There I am also a co-Team Leader, but this time of Team Sci-Fi, naturally! ;)  The other teams are Drama and History.  In both cases you don't have to participate in every challenge, only some of them, and many of them are quick ones for those crunched for time.

So if you are addicted to BBC shows, and would like to meet new people and have fun, then consider checking out these two comms! ;)

Also, while I'm at it, I forgot to mention in my last post that [livejournal.com profile] naty_seixas made a Tumblr for Cesare/Lucrezia that is affiliated with the [livejournal.com profile] cesare_lucrezia  comm, so all you Tumblr types who enjoy the pairing should check it out! ;)

And Happy Borgias Day everyone!  If anyone is interested in a live episode discussion post, there's one going on here! ;)
