sherrilina: (Theon Greyjoy (ASOIAF/GoT))
Well last week was sure one of highs and lows for ASOIAF fandom. On the bright side, GRRM released a Sansa chapter from TWOW!!! (And said he is trying for 2016!) On the other hand, the spoilers that have come out from the screeners of the first four epps of s5 make it sound like the worst, grossest season yet...:/

Some quick thoughts on the Sansa chapter... )

I was especially happy to see a Sansa chapter out, since on the show they have inexplicably rushed to the end of Sansa's AFFC storyline already--it's good to know what Sansa is *actually* up to right now in the story, as opposed to D&D's horrible fanfiction. Let's talk about that fan fiction for a moment:

Spoilers for GoT 5x01-5x04 )

On a lighter GoT note, did you guys see this funny Seth Meyers Brings Jon Snow to a Dinner Party video? ;)

+ Also, an episode of Vikings happened--my thoughts on 3x07:

He is my ally, not my friend. I don't have any friends. It's better that way. )

+ Also, can we talk about The Americans for a moment?!

OMG PAIGE KNOWS NOW AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! I did NOT expect her to find out so soon--normally that is like season finale shit, but nope, not on this show! <333 THAT WHOLE REVEAL SCENE WAS SO AMAZING! THEIR FACES, PHILLIP'S LITTLE NOD, THE WAY ELIZABETH WAS SO TOTALLY AT LOST FOR WORDS AND PHILLIP ENDED UP BEING THE FIRST TO BREAK THE NEWS DESPITE HIS RESERVATIONS!!! SO perfectly done, I had to rewatch it a few times..."we were born in another country", I CAN'T! And Paige's reactions, asking them to speak Russian, and this week what their real names were...I really can't wait to see where that all goes! I was terrified during the scene where she calls her pastor (who continues to be super creepy btw) and they are all anxious at work...this show sure knows how to pile on the tension and put you on the edge of your seat! I think they are lucky actually that the Centre had ordered them to recruit Paige, or they might have been in real trouble otherwise for telling her the truth...

Also omg Martha, YOU IN DANGER GURL! D: I must give her props for being such a good liar under all that pressure, but I am worried she still gave herself away...I want to hear what Walter Taffet says to Gaad! I also was bummed we didn't get to hear Phillip's plan for how Elizabeth can see her mother. These episodes always end far too son! I can't believe we are only two away now from the finale...thank god we know there will be a season 4 now.

Oh and how about that reveal about the defector?! I loved how it was done, with Arkady actually noting it could have been the KGB ordering that attempt because of how compartmentalized everything was...I hate for Stan to be right about anything, but it was still cool! And now Oleg is in on the Mail Robot scheme too, which is neat...the conversation about what had been overheard was hilarious. More Rezidentura scenes, please.


+ Finally, Outlander returned this week at last...

Spoilers for 1x09 )

Too much TV going on right now!

 
sherrilina: (Cesare/Lucrezia "My Love" (The Borgias))
So tonight is the night...the last night of The Borgias fandom while the show is still on the air with episodes left to see. :( I feel both sad and rather anxious with worry about whether the finale will be any good, whether C/L will end in a place I can handle...I'm just not ready yet for it all to end!



It's kind of unfortunate that the GoT season 3 finale is also tonight, since I'm kind of distracted by The Borgias, though I hope that ends well too, and I'm rather curious to see where they cut that off. In the meantime, however, I wanted to post my thoughts on the last few episodes of The Borgias through 3x08 (I didn't have time to type my 3x09 thoughts yet, though I have seen that epp and loved it as well!):

3x08:

But is the shroud wonder enough? Perhaps we should add a miracle... )

3x07:

There was no affection. Affection leads to weakness, and I have no use for either. )

3x06:

If I married a thousand times, it would always be the wrong choice. )

I've been on pins and needles all weekend wondering if the finale was going to leak, but I'm glad to see for once it hasn't! I don't have work tomorrow, so I can watch it at any time...if I can bring myself to do so. :/

It's March now, which means Fandom March Madness--and all the attending wank and intensity--has begun! And as usual, I am already caught up in it and way too obsessive over the way the voting is going, lol. I am annoyed at the arbitrary nature of what was included this year, namely in Drama--I don't know why for example shows like House of Cards that literally only started a month or so ago are included, but current shows that were in it LAST year, like The Borgias (which also have smaller fandoms, if they are going with that argument) were not--it's total BS, and this was my reaction when I first noticed it wasn't on the list:



And then this is my reaction to all of the morons who keep writing in the names of shows that are ALREADY IN THE BRACKETS FFS, wasting their votes because they have no reading comprehension:



*sigh* So PLEASE, if you haven't voted already, and you have a spare moment in the next half hour or so (voting closes at 12 pm EST), please consider nominating THE BORGIAS in the Drama category--I'm really worried about whether it will have enough votes to land one of the two top slots. :/

I'm also rooting for The Americans in the Drama category (I'm all caught up now and it is my favorite new show, SO GOOD, you should all be watching!), Battlestar Galactica in Sci-Fi/Fantasy (I have been looking forward to stanning for it in FMM since I caught up, and thanks to "Blood and Chrome" coming out recently it is still eligible!), and Veep in Comedy--so if you could support those as well, that would also be cool!

Vote HERE.

What are you guys stanning for this year?
