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))
On this tragic date last year, the series finale of The Borgias was released on Showtime's videoplayer. ;_; I can't believe it's already been a year since we had the last new material from The Borgias (Jordan's awful fanfiction doesn't count), and the fandom came to a close. Watching GoT especially makes me miss this superior show.

In any case, I still haven't formally posted my reactions/thoughts on the last two episodes of the show, so I think I will mark this anniversary with those:

3x09:

You know where the scandal is. )

3x10:

AND MINE. )

Let us all have a moment of silence in memory of this wonderful show, RIP. Also let's start a prayer circle that Fran├žois will get another project and return to our screens soon. I think I might need to do a full rewatch soon, since it's all on Netflix streaming now. Fittingly enough, I am in the middle of finally reading Christopher Hibbert's The Borgias and Their Enemies: 1431-1519 at this time, which is also making me miss the show. Like I just read past the part where it discusses how Cardinal Sassypants Sforza made an alliance with Rodrigo in exchange for the position of Vice Chancellor. How I wish I had his sass and epic expressions still in my life. I'm also feeling nostalgic about [livejournal.com profile] cesare_lucrezia, so here is my first post there, a discussion about when people started shipping C/L and if anyone thought they would actually ~go there. Pretty funny reading in retrospect, knowing that they did indeed do so! ;)

+ Speaking of GoT, there's not really much to say about 4x09 except that it was even more fucking boring than I expected...

We should have stayed in that cave. )

RME too at what HBO submitted to the Emmys for GoT, particularly in terms of the actors nominated--Kit and Nikolaj but no Alfie, who was frankly the only actor who deserved any recognition? I sincerely hope they don't get any nods outside technical ones, that is all they deserve, and that they have ever deserved (but especially now after such a flop season). Whereas The Borgias deserved more. The nomination for prosthetics next epp though excites me--it must be LS, surely?!

 
sherrilina: (Jeff/Britta (Community))
So I've spent the last few days marathoning Community like crazy and I'm finally all caught up! I loved it, only wish I discovered this gem earlier. My thoughts:

Me and Abed have an agreement. If one of us dies, we stage it to look like a suicide caused by the unjust cancellation of Firefly... )

+ Today I also finally caught up on Once Upon a Time just in time for its return this Sunday! :) A few thoughts on this show as well...

No matter what you do, I will always find you )

+ For those of you who are Cesare/Lucrezia fans, there is a commentfic meme going on right now over at [livejournal.com profile] cesare_lucrezia, check it out!



+ This is random, but I also was stamped as Morgana in a recent [livejournal.com profile] merlin_land challenge, and feel honored! <3 ;) Still need to finish season 4 of Merlin...



+ I saw The Adventures of TinTin last night, and while visually stunning, it was one of the excruciatingly boring, interminable 2 hours of my life...:/ I think sadly it's one of those things you have to be a fan of already to really appreciate (unless you are a kid). Another Moffat gutter-ball for me.

 
sherrilina: (Cesare/Lucrezia "My Love" (The Borgias))
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*

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: (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! ;)

So I ended up watching the epp last night after all...

What matters is what we feel, that's what's important, not what the people think. )

I'll post my SN review tomorrow....but I LOVED that epp! :)

So I haven't watched this week's Merlin yet, but a moron on another forum just left me a nice little message without warning containing a MAJOR spoiler for it, and now I don't know if I even really feel like watching...:(

Message to the Merlin Writers (SPOILERS) )

I suppose I'll have to watch this episode at some point but...ugh, just too pissed to deal right now! >:(  What a way to cap a meh day!

EDIT: Also I found a great Uther/Morgana fanvid to "November Rain" I'd recommend! ;)  "Nothing lasts forever..."
