sherrilina: (Claire/Frank (Outlander))
Thanks to a free marathon promotion on my cable rn, I have spent the last few days marathoning the fantastic Outlander (in honor of Scotland's vote against independence, oop)! It is definitely my new favorite show. I had been hearing great things about it, and wanted to watch it even more once I learned that RDM and Bear McCreary of BSG were involved, so I am thankful I had the chance to catch up right before it tragically goes on hiatus. I cannot recommend this show highly enough if you aren't watching it yet. More detailed thoughts on episodes 1x01-1x07:

Sing me a song of a lass that has gone... )

In short, I hate that the show is going to go on long hiatus so soon, right after I discovered it--I have been enjoying it so much, and will really miss it! :( Who else is watching it?

+ Also now that Fall has officially arrived, I thought I might as well poat my Fall TV schedule:

Too many shows, too little time... )

As you can see, the only show I am adding to my schedule is Forever, because IOAN GRUFFUDD! <33 I first fell for him while watching Ringer, and subsequently realized he was the "Is there anyone alive out there?! Can anyone hear me?!" officer in Titanic who went back for the survivors in the water (and whom I delight in imitating always--"Right, noooobody panic!" /strong Welsh accent). I have been missing his face on my TV screen since Ringer's cancelation, which would have been reason enough to check it out, but the supernatural-esque premise is somewhat intriguing as well. I've watched the first two epps now:

Wouldn't it be funny if this time I actually died? )

Anyone else watching this one?

 
sherrilina: (Cesare/Lucrezia (The Borgias))
So as anyone who follows me on Tumblr has probably noticed already, I have a shiny new fandom obsession/favorite TV show: Showtime's The Borgias!  :D  I  had been ridiculously excited for this show since seeing the trailer last January, so naturally when I heard that the premiere had been leaked early I had to watch it (as I finally managed to do the Monday before last, March 21).  It not only failed to disappoint, but quite exceeded my already high expectations! :D  I am now already completely obsessed/in love with this show, and I can't wait until it premieres "officially" and we can get the next episode!  <3333 (The promos and pics and clips from 1x03 are already killing me). 

Likewise while I was already shipping Cesare/Lucrezia from the trailer and shippy promo pics alone, after this episode they are my new favorite pairing (and definitely favorite incest-ship, lol).  They have so much chemistry and smoldering UST (especially from Cesare's end), but at the same time they are so close and sweet and tender with each other, so protective and affectionate and devoted, they have both fluffy moments and plenty of angst, and have the whole "forbidden/doomed love" thing going for them since they are siblings--it's like the best of all kinds of ships rolled into one beautiful pairing!  ♥

I love them so much that, along with [livejournal.com profile] lucyskyx, I've begun an LJ comm for them (my first ever!), which I encourage any of you who enjoy this goodbadwrong pairing (whether from the premiere or just the trailers, lol) to join, if you haven't already! :) (Banner by [livejournal.com profile] blue_emotion)

It's going pretty well so far, we already have over 100 members (even though the show has yet to officially air, lol), I'm very excited about it all! :)  I also finally cracked and bought myself extra userpics since I was out of space and I *needed* to have an icon of these two. ;)  Anyway, more specific/spoilery thoughts on the show and its premiere (1x01-1x02):

If anything happened to her...I’d die. )

Seriously, you ALL need to watch this show, I have NEVER fallen for a show so much after just one episode, it's definitely the best premiere/pilot I've ever seen (a much stronger start than The Tudors to be sure!).  I just want to draw hearts around this premiere/show, it gives me a goofy grin on my face just thinking about it...if it keeps it up (and all signs indicate it will), it had BETTER get a shit-ton of Emmy nominations and awards, or there is no justice in this world (especially since it's not only amazing, but more of the type of show the Emmy's nominates from).  Right now it's looking like it's going to be Best Drama material for sure.  There's a reason why this show already has an "army of stans" as one commenter on [livejournal.com profile] ohnotheydidnt put it (before promptly watching and declaring herself a complete stan as well)! ;)

Okay I need to take a moment to squee about all the delicious new promo material for the upcoming dramas The Borgias and Camelot, especially regarding the pairings of Lucrezia/Cesare and Arthur/Morgan respectively.

First of all, though we still don't know to what extent their relationship will be romantic, from the clips and pictures and interviews it certainly seems like Arthur/Morgan will be intense and epic and important, which is just how I like it! :)

'The relationship between Arthur and Morgan and their dual desire for the throne is the key spine of the series.' )

Then there's the fact that The Borgias (which has an even more epic trailer than Camelot's) seems to be pushing the incestuous Lucrezia/Cesare relationship as the epic romance of the series, which is pretty bold and amazing and pleases the d00med!shipper in me very much, lol! ;)  As a long-time Arthur/Morgan(a) shipper I'm used to shipping incest/half-siblings anyway, lol, it doesn't phase me, and from the trailers and pictures it looks like a really gripping and compelling/touching forbidden romance, full of chemistry....I haven't even seen the show yet, and I'm already shipping it SO hard! :p <333 Here's a mini-spam of the shippy promo pics we have so far...

Taking 'brotherly love' a little too far... )

Also I like the look of Cesare so far, he seems sympathetic and really hot.  And of course there's Pope Jeremy Irons, can't go wrong there...I could listen to that voice all day! :)

Anyway, can't wait for these shows to come out!  I remember being so excited when when I first heard about Camelot, and it's good to see it doesn't look disappointing so far....though god, more TV in the spring, lol, at this rate I'll be swamped! :p

In other news I bought my first lottery tickets ever, lol, since the Mega Millions is up to $355 million today, so might as well!  The draw is at 11 pm, lol, we'll see...

EDIT: While looking for the The Borgias trailer to rewatch I also found one for a Spanish movie called Los Borgia in 2006 starring Lluís Homar as Rodrigo Borgia and Paz Vega, which I clearly need to watch now! :D

EDIT 2: Now I've also realized that the icon I used here is even more appropriate than I thought, since the actress playing Young!Morgaine seen there is apparently the same one playing Guinevere now, all grown up!  Another reason to be excited for Camelot...:D  I did love her in MoA, and lol how ironic to go from playing Morgan to Guinevere...

[Error: unknown template qotd]I couldn't resist this one, history buff that I am...I would live during my favorite era of history, the 16th century, the era of The Tudors, the Spanish Hapsbugs, the Valois....but above all the Tudors--you already know about my obsession there! ;)  I would love to see all of my favorite historical figures in the flesh, and see firsthand what their life was like, maybe wear one of those fabulous gowns.  But only temporarily mind you--I couldn't stand the sanitary, social, and political conditions for long....
