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)


Also someone please rescue me from Tumblr.
 
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*

 
sherrilina: (Doomsday Ten/Rose)
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: (Lord Asriel/Marisa  (Golden Compass))
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...

sherrilina: (Arthur/Morgana 3 (Merlin))
Especially after that finale....*sigh* *bashes head against the wall*  I just....I know I will keep watching, but you are terrible for my blood pressure! >:(  Seriously writers, what did the concept of "character development" ever do to you that you hate it so much?  How is it so hard to understand that you can't just completely change/adjust the characters' personalities at whim and at the drop of a hat to fit your contrived and stupid plot conveniences, and with no explanation?  *rolleyes*  That's just shitty writing....those who complain about the writing or Sam's characterization on Supernatural or him being "evil" all the time can't have seen, I feel, because in comparison, well, SN has NOTHING on Merlin!  Not even the same league...

More thoughts on Merlin 3x13 and the season on the whole, not all negative, lol:

'No, I don't really fancy it.' 'YOU don't have a choice, Merlin.' )

Luckily GG was really good (even better than last week's!), and thus cheered me up a bit, glad I waited to watch Merlin until yesterday (as opposed to the same night I watched SN and VD--I had feared it would make me rage), and before GG.  I also saw a fun cultural spectacle last night, which I'll say more about in another post.  SN and VD were also great, for the most part, though I had a few issues with the SN....

SN 6x10:

No big! This is what friends do for each other... )

Why did all the CW shows decide to hiatus like one episode later this year, by the way?  I was originally expecting SN 6x10 and VD 2x10 to be the big episode before hiatus...I mean, this is better, but it's funny!

sherrilina: (Uther/Morgana (Merlin))
Last weekend I had no time to watch any of my shows, and I just caught up with SN and Merlin today, and had a few thoughts....

SN 6x09:

Dean...did you service Oberon king of the fairies? )

Merlin 3x11:

Did anyone think this tournament through? A contest, open to all comers, with a prize of a hundred gold coins....hmm, I wonder what kind of people are going to turn up? )

Merlin 3x12:

Always the pessimist Merlin...who knows, maybe just this once we'll have no trouble! )

I can't believe we're almost at hiatus season already....ah well, I'm kind of looking forward to it, I need a break to catch up with my shows like Bones and finish other stuff like Torchwood! Still also need to catch up on last week's GG...

sherrilina: (Chuck/Blair (Gossip Girl))
[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!

sherrilina: (Booth/Brennan (Bones))
*sigh*

Well after a run of 5 superb episodes before the hiatus that finally made me really excited about the show again, I’m once again finding myself more bored with GG than anything else. The last three episodes have been okay, but haven’t excited me very much, unfortunately. I hope that the show can get back on track soon, lest it turn into another Bones for me….:(

Because yeah Bones….Bones is just “meh” to me as well, these days. I’ll still keep watching it, out of loyalty, but aside from a few episodes and moments here and there I am not really feeling myself gripped by this season, or by the show in general anymore—which makes me sad, given how excited I used to be for it each week (Bonesday was always a big deal to me, whichever day it was). But now it’s always my last priority show, one I just catch up with over vacation, like last week….

More ramblings on Bones, with some small spoilers for season 5 up to this week )

Hopefully the 100th epp—which sounds awesome, but which sadly I will be unable to watch live—will rekindle some of my old Bones enthusiasm, I am excited for that! :)
sherrilina: (Brennan (Bones))
So over this weekend I have finally gotten around to watching Bones season 5 off a tape my dad has been taping for me on their VCR (I saw them for Thanksgiving!), and I'm almost caught up--I've seen all but 5x02 and 5x05 (which weren't on the tape). And I have to say that I've been enjoying it more than I thought I would--it's no season 2, and still has a lot of flaws, but it has been pretty enjoyable, and I have been liking the Booth/Brennan! ♥

Look Bones, I would die for you, I would kill for you, but I'm not going to get between you and Angela! )

So much for waiting until summer! :p But I'm glad I caught up a little....I need to stop my SN marathon (I'm up to 4x11) in order to save some for when I get season 4 on DVD for Christmas, so I'll occupy myself in the meantime catching up on the 2 Bones epps and 5 GG epps I'm behind on, not to mention Dollhouse returns soon with double-billing....
sherrilina: (Topher/Claire (Dollhouse))
So I've been meaning to post here for a while since I finally caught up with season 2 about what an INCREDIBLE and AWESOME Joss Whedon's newest show Dollhouse is--seriously, if you have not seen it yet, please try to watch it (it's sadly not going to be airing during November, so you have a month to watch only 17 episodes, if you want to watch from the beginning!), it is such a great, interesting, thought-provoking show (definitely more so than any other show I am watching so far--it's of the "makes you think about morality and philosophy and identity and other deep questions" variety), and right now it is in great danger of being canceled because of low ratings--in part because of it's Friday night death slot (apparently only on CBS does 5 million+ every Friday night get you canceled! *still bitter about Moonlight too*) and Fox's refusal to properly promote it, and its lame pairing with two comedies before it, and in part perhaps because it is kind of a difficult show for some to watch. If you do give it a try, and don't like it at first, please make sure to at least watch 1x06 before giving up....some of the early episodes are a little shaky!

I already have a ship (of course, lol) and some favorite characters: Spoilers up through 2x04 )

General discussion about viewing Dollhouse, Merlin, Gossip Girl, Bones, and Supernatural, cut for length )

TL;DR: I am now quite obsessed with Dollhouse and Supernatural, and am putting Merlin and Bones on pause for now until the Christmas holidays or summer....

sherrilina: (Arthur/Morgana 3 (Merlin))
Oy. So I've watched the first two episodes of Merlin, and while the second episode was much better than the first story-wise, I had some other, er, problems with it....

2x02 discussion )

As for my other shows, I'm really behind on things, but GG also had a less-than-impressive premiere that was followed by a much improved second episode, the Bones premiere was the best one yet IMO (as Bones usually has pretty crappy premieres), and Vampire Diaries has been surprisingly decent the first two epps--I am definitely going to continue watching, and not just because of Ian Somerhalder's sexy self! :p  Dollhouse I still have to watch the season 1 finale of....I don't know if I can get to it this fall, I might catch up over break and have it take Merlin's place once Merlin ends.
sherrilina: (Mick/Beth (Moonlight))
Meme snagged from [livejournal.com profile] opheliahyde :

List the first ten TV series that come to mind. Your friends will comment with the character from each series that they think you  like most.


1. True Blood
2.  Merlin
3. Moonlight
4. Angel
5. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
6. Gossip Girl
7. Veronica Mars
8. The Tudors
9. Being Human
10. Bones

Several of these shows would be pretty easy to guess, I'd think....

sherrilina: (Mick/Beth (Moonlight))
[Error: unknown template qotd]Oh TV couples--one of my favorite topics, and definitely a question that I remember coming up here before in these WB things....well of the three couples listed in the question, my favorite it definitely Chuck/Blair (the only one I have seen also, to be fair), though they are not my overall favorite TV couple (especially given all the crap the writers pull out at times).  I think I'll still stand by my previous answer, and say that Cordy/Angel from Angel is my all-time favorite TV couple, but there are a LOT of contenders.  For instance there's Arthur/Morgana from Merlin, the "duo" that I'm currently celebrating in my banner and default icon, Lily/Rufus (also from Gossip Girl), Booth/Brennan from Bones (in their best moments, I haven't been so happy with what the writers have been doing with them at times), and Mick/Beth from Moonlight (icon), whose greatness as a couple I have recently fully remembered thanks to my ML marathon last weekend--these two in particular are just so well-matched, and their interactions are two adorable and filled with chemistry.  I'm SO glad that the writers played it safe and gave them a happy ending in the season finale so that when it turned into the series finale thanks to CBS's immense suckage and idiocy the series ended on a good note (I would have wanted to kill the writers if they had ended things badly between M/B!)
sherrilina: (Lucrecia (Águila Roja))

Wow, I haven't posted here in a while before the other day, when I had to vent....things have been really busy!  Actually things are still really busy, and I really shouldn't be posting here right now, but I'm in the mood...:p

Anyway lots of things to say--first of all, I have discovered a new TV show and addiction, "Aguila Roja"--a Spanish TV show that just started a few months ago about a teacher in the "17th century" (a really inaccurate 17th century though, that makes "The Tudors" look like the history channel, lol) who, upon the murder of his wife by a secret organization that is trying to kill the king to take power, converts into 'Aguila Roja' (Red Hawk in English), a ninja who investigates the murderers of his wife while also helping the helpless and poor--it's like Robin Hood and Batman (secret identiry and all that) combined, but with a ninja costume instead, and it's totally cracktastic and awesome! :p  In some of its aspects it actually reminds me a lot of "Merlin" too, which is another plus!  You can get a sense of its cracktastic glory in these pictures:

Ninjas and 17th century pleather.... )


In the latter pic you can see another reason why I like this show--the protagonist is quite the sexy hottie! ;)

 Also "The Tudors" season 3 finally began, and while I was a little bored with the first epp, the second episode I enjoyed quite a bit, and think the season could be a good one even if storywise it could never live up to the greatness of season 2--still haven't seen it past episode 2 though, I'll have to catch up this summer....

Very mild Tudors season 3 spoilers for 3.01 and 3.02 and history!spoiler speculation )

And here's the rest, so I don't take up too much space....

The rest: La buena nueva, The Host Spanish!Style, GG, and Bones )

Sorry for the long post, I wanted to catch up....

sherrilina: (Morgana (Merlin))
Saw this meme on the LJ of [livejournal.com profile] sparkling_gold and couldn't resist snagging....though I feel like most of these fandoms will be so obvious that it's not really a matter of guessing--as obsessed a shipper as I am, I'm not really one to keep quiet about which ships I love! ;) Though I suppose that the challenge is guessing the second favorite ship--for some of these I hardly know the answer myself! :p 

1. List 15-20 of you favorite old and new fandoms.
2. Have your friends guess your favorite two ships from each fandom. (Note: for me the second fave can involve a person from the first fave!) (Note II: I realized that there are some fandoms for which I really only like one ship, so for those you only have to guess one!)
3. Strike out the fandom when someone guesses correctly and put the name of the first person to get it right.

List of Fandoms Here )
sherrilina: (Chuck/Blair (Gossip Girl))

So I've been terrible at posting here lately, and am way behind--but I thought I'd start catching up with Gossip Girl, the latest episode of which I just saw today.  Here are my thoughts about the last three epps...

GG 2x17
 

'Anything you want to tell me?' 'Um, besides that I'm glad that you're not wearing that racoon make-up anymore?' )

GG 2x16

 

Is it war, Miss Blair? )

GG 2x15

 

I hate spending every day locked in here worrying about how much you hate me when I'm still so very much in love with you.... )

And I just read the new relationship spoiler, and all I can say is....blech! :(
sherrilina: (Mick/Beth (Moonlight))
Go to your Calendar and find the first entry for each month of 2008. Post the first line of it in your journal, and that's your "Year In Review".

I got this idea from [livejournal.com profile] vltavska  .....it seemed nifty, so I tried it out, though unfortunately I´m missing 3 months because I didn´t post in them--I was very sporadic at first, and too busy squeeing over the new Artemis Fowl book (grr, still need to post my review here for that!) and preparing for BD to write anything in July I guess....so here goes!  For ones where the first line doesn´t make sense unless you see the title, I posted that as well in brackets...with my comments from now as well.

This was an interesting exercise, hopefully next year I´ll be able to do it for every month!
 

Tudors, Moonlight, Kushiels Mercy, Artemis Fowl, Breaking Dawn, and Gossip Girl ahoy! )

sherrilina: (Morgana (Merlin))

So yesterday I finally got to see this week's Merlin epp, which I've been dying to see ever since the spoilers came out and people were reacting to them (though I managed to remain spoiler free through a strength of will, thank goodness)!  And it definitely met my high expectations! :D  I even watched it a second time today and wrote a proper review instead of a running commentary....

Merlin 1x12:

You have been a blessing to me, Morgana. You are the daughter I never had. Your council is invaluable as is your friendship, and your love. Without you I cannot hope to be the king this land deserves. )


Oh and I just saw that ASH confirmed a second season of Merlin—yay! His whole “relationships have been developing” comment worries me a little though….it depends on which ones he means! :p

I also finally saw this week's GG epp today, which was also pretty effing incredible (perhaps the best epp yet of that show as well!), though I'll post more on that later...
