First off, the last TVD epp gave me a lot of ~feelings:

There's a whole world out there waiting for you )

I also wanted to congratulate my bb Nina Dobrev for winning the PCA for Best Drama Actress as the first write-in candidate ever--girl sure deserved the recognition, she has mad talent and was much better than the other candidates she was up against aside from Emily Deschanel perhaps (how exactly does someone like Blake Lively get these kinds of nods, seriously?). So glad about that, though still pissed at CBS's lame snubs of SPN (might as well get another use out of my "cbs sucks" tag, lol).

Last night I actually ended up watching Bones live on the air for the first time in god, IDEK, maybe since the season 3 finale in 2008? I think so actually...it's a long story (I was taping TVD though). LOLing as always at the unrealistic fake!Smithsonian stuff but okay epp overall--I was a bit confused about the end though...

Quick Bones question for those who watched this epp )

Since I've also expanded my icon collection and fandoms a lot since I last did it, I decided to do this Icon Meme again as well.  I made a deliberate effort to use different icons from last time where possible, which affected some of my selections:

MAH ICONS 2.0 )

I also finally saw Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy last Sunday, good stuff, and so many big British actors, lol. In that respect I particularly enjoyed seeing Edith's little cameo. ;) So many movies I want to see right now though, god, like 7, IDK how I'll manage them all....

And here is an adorable picture of my birdie Punky sleeping for your time:

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: (Teenage Mutant Ninja Angel!Raphael (SN))
Wow....lots of shocking TV episodes this week!  I meant to post about VD yesterday, but after watching the big SN episode I have to just do that first....O_o  Big SN 6x20 spoilers obviously:

Freedom is a length of rope, God wants you to hang yourself with it )

This beautiful string cover I found on Tumblr is my angsty Supernatural soundtrack right now as I think about this episode and Cas, lol.  Need to track down a copy of it...anyway, next post about the also major but more shocking recent VD epp!


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: (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: (Uther/Morgana (Merlin))
OMG.  Guys, I think I'm actually excited about Merlin again....that premiere was just AMAZING! <3333  God is it fantastic to be into this show again....I was internally squeeing like a maniac pretty much the whole time! :D

Morgana...there are no words. You mean more to me than you will ever know. )

So between this and the badass VD premiere, this TV season is off to a promising start so far...:)  2 for 2!

Day 28 – First TV show obsession:

Into every generation... )

Also I finally caught up with DW late last night!  And just in time for the start of my fall shows tonight, with the VD season 2 premiere...more on both later.
sherrilina: (Damon/Teddy (Vampire Diaries))
Man, I've already fallen ridiculously behind on this meme...*sigh*  Oh well, here's "Day 3"!

TV Meme:

Day 01 – A show that should never have been canceled. (Moonlight)
Day 02 – A show that you wish more people were watching. (Aguila Roja)
Day 03 – Your favorite new show (aired this TV season).

Rest of 30 Day Meme List )

Day 03 – Your favorite new show (aired this TV season):

Some girls just can't resist my good looks, my charm, and my unflinching ability to listen to Taylor Swift... )

I'll try to keep up better now, though this weekend I'll be away in NYC...:)
sherrilina: (Sam 'n' Dean (Supernatural))
Well, I watched my first live SN finale....

Sure, maybe they never had a roof and four walls, but they were never, in fact, homeless )

Also I loved the True Blood season 3 promo, it looks epic! :)  And the promo for the next Vampire Academy book, I wasn't expecting that so I didn't realize what it was at first....makes me all the more excited for getting that next Tuesday! :D  Though I need to post my Book 4 fanmix here before then...

Also I need to finish reading Dead in the Family, which I picked up last Saturday, before this Saturday, since I'm meeting up with someone I will want to discuss the book with! ;)

And VD was amazing and crazy as well, though I am too tired to post about that right now. I am sad though that this is mostly likely the last time VD and SN will ever be paired up on Thursday nights together, it's pretty sweet, having your two favorite shows back to back on the same night like that! :( *sigh*
sherrilina: (Sam 'n' Dean (Supernatural))
Well I was able to watch both of my favorite shows tonight (VD haters get thee to the left, esp. if you haven't actually watched the show), and I enjoyed the VD epp more than the SN one, sorry to say....

VD 1x20

I think the teacher had an existential crisis... )

SN 5x20

Lovers in League Against Satan )

God, only two more episodes of the season each, should be interesting!
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.
