the tv post wherein I give spn + vporn reviews and talk about all the tv I watched this month.  
Or, this be my huge tv talking post of the month, and since I need to talk about SPN and the vampire pornography too, let's have everything here. Premise: I watched a damn lot TV, so there'll be general talking about entire seasons, oh my. I'll try not to rant for ages though. ;) Therefore, there you get Janie's thoughts on:

1. I watched this one in January though I had seen the first episode with toestastegood and itsjustc at the ELF, but then it was like 10.30 PM and I had been up since six in the morning and I kinda had nodded off anytime that Rupert Graves wasn't on screen. /hides Anyway I'd have picked it up again if only because Rupert Graves is in it. xD Anyway, general review: I think it's an awesome show. I can't shake off the feeling that it feels a bit like some Holmes AU fanfic scenario (then again I was obsessed with the books, I'll never not think that of any adaptation that isn't following canon anyway XD) but hey, in case, it's excellent AU fanfic. ;) I really liked how they adapted it to modern times and how they kept or updated canon. It's also a very clever show, which I can totally appreciate. Also I liked a lot that the characters are perfectly recognizable (like, I think that they totally nailed a possible 21st century Holmes) but that at the same time they're their own thing as well. It's a really well-thought blend. Also I died gleeing at how they were reworking the actual cases while keeping canon details. The only problem I have with it is that the ending was a complete cheat and that if they had another episode or so for Moriarty to pop up at random some more it'd have worked better. I mean, apart that I have a bad relationships with cliffhangers, the Moriarty reveal felt kind of wtf in the sense of 'wait where did I even see this guy - oh right he was for one minute in episode two'. If he had popped up a bit more it'd have felt more organic if you ask me, but that's the only quibble I have with it. Anyway, as pretty much everyone would have probably guessed, my favorite is Lestrade. I never was too big on him in the books but I absolutely love to pieces how they updated the character and that they actually gave him and Sherlock a totally explorable backstory, and well, the fact that I'd totally do Rupert Graves in a heartbeat doesn't hurt either. xD

Now, point that will probably have a bunch of people going wtf at me and would probably end up being good for that unpopular opinions meme: I don't find either of the leads attractive in the 'OMG HOT' sense. They're both totally nailing their roles, but none of them clicks for me in that sense. (Though I'd love to have tea and a nice long talk with Benedict Cumberbatch. He has a lovely voice.) Which also sadly means that I can't really do Sherlock/John in a sense that isn't platonic, which feels utterly weird since I've done Holmes/Watson since before I knew what slashing meant. The fact that I realized that I shipped Sherlock/Lestrade ended up being a massive weirding out moment. It also meant less fic to catch up with on weekends with nothing to do though. It will also mean that I probably won't do much fandom-wise, but I already have enough stuff on my table anyway. (These are probably the famous last words, but whatever.) So, overall, excellent show which I'll be watching next year. I doubt I'll do much for it fandom-wise and of that 100% will be Lestrade-oriented, probably, but heck, if I didn't like an underused character it wouldn't be me. xD Btw. If anyone has recs or something I'll be glad to have them.

2. I had to temporarily drop this because I didn't have time for a show this long while writing the damned thesis, but I finally caught up and DAMN WHY DID I EVER HAVE TO DROP IT. The first four episodes were slow-building but crap if it didn't pick up at five. And then my only comment is wow. I just, the last half of the season completely blew me away, and for once everything I hoped would happen happened. Wtf? It's too good. Anyway, I mostly loved the fact that they have characters so well written that even if you want to dislike them 100% you can't. (Or well, I had ambivalent feelings towards Van Alden going from 'oh god quit it with the religious nutcase talking' to 'well I might actually like you' until he killed his stupid colleague, which I didn't even like, but that was way too fucked. XD And while I don't like Van Halden and I positively hated Lucy I actually went like 'OMG AWESOME' at that ending twist, and at the bare fact that they got together at all). I mean, I like Jimmy half of the time and want to slap him the other half, but I have the same relationship with pretty much all the main cast except Chalky, who's just too awesome for wanting to slap him. Also god the acting is so good. And the settings are so well done. I love myself a show with good sets and costumes and atmosphere. I'm pretty much in love with everyone's storylines really. My favorites are definitely Nucky, Chalky, Margaret and Richard, and re the storylines I was very much fond (apart from the general Nucky story arc, but I guess it's a given) of the one with Jimmy's wife (and I liked that they reconciled in the end), the whole Jimmy/Richard friendship/possibly slash potential that reminds me way too much of Dean/Castiel for obvious reasons *cough* whorehouse *cough*, anything involving Chalky (btw, hi actor who was Omar from The Wire! As soon as I finish SFU I'm finishing your show as well, don't worry..), Margaret's own storyline (or: while I might have shipping interests, I appreciate a female character who gets a good arc where she goes from point A to B and has an actual evolution while keeping her brains intact) and most of the stuff happening in Chicago. As stated, Van Alden makes me crazy because I hate religious crazies but I like the idea of the character, so I guess I'll see how it goes in S2. He isn't even the kind of character I love to hate (IE: Al from Deadwood) because he doesn't have much redeeming qualities, except that he isn't really a bad person. Ah well, I like having mixed feelings I guess. My favorite episodes are probably 5, 7, 9 and the finale, but I loved it all. And now I need to wait for October for it to start again? *weeps*

3. Or: at Christmas I was surfing the tv while feeling like crap, I tuned into Leverage which was on Italian tv, Mark Sheppard showed up, it looked like fun and I figured I'd give it a shot since lately while Chuck has been awesome it's been more angst/serious than else when Jeffster is not concerned and I need a fun show. And one that airs in the summer, since I'm out of summer shows. And I loved it! :D Apart from a number of episodes whose plot I didn't exactly care for and mostly left me underwhelmed it was absolutely a blast/delicious/fun and I can't wait to watch it properly when S4 starts again. I like the fun/serious balance and I love everyone in the team. I'm not even picking favorites this round, I go pretty much like 'OMG LOVE' at everyone at some point, so I'll just state that my only clear preference is that I totally ship Eliot/Parker/Hardison to death. xD Also I liked all seasons pretty much equally, which rarely happens with me. But really, there wasn't one I enjoyed less. Also Mark Sheppard was awesome in it. <3 My favorite eps are definitely The Rashomon Job which was all kinds of genius, The Studio Job, that one in S1 where they went freeing kids in the orphanage, that other S1 ep where they dealed with the boss' daughter's wedding, the one which I think was in S2 when Hardison stopped the plane from crashing, the one where Parker ended up in the psychiatric institusion and The Bottle Job [oh and the Gone Fishing job as well], but I thoroughly enjoyed the show. The only thing I hated was that in S3 they had the (in)decency to cast Elisabetta Canalis who's been on my tv screens (Italian tv screens) since I was eleven and who can't act worth a dime in Italian as well, and not only in English. Ugh. I mean, I've been having proof of the fact that she can't for ten years, I didn't need to see her face semi-regularly. *sigh* Anyway, most definitely a keeper. :D

4. Joined review because last week for some reason I didn't manage to do it, list style:

- DAMON I WANT TO HUG YOU. Also I'll be glad to have sex in your tub as well. *siiiigh* No seriously, I just love what they're doing with him lately. Last scene during last week's episode broke my heart. And I actually cried for real when Rose died, wtf is up with me? And I liked the snark this week, and that scene in the bath because heck it was actual character development even if he was having sex, and his attitude and everything and just, DAMON ILU.

- DAVID ANDERS IS BACK! \o/ and he has dark shit to hide! I like.

- Alaric, there needs to be moar of you, but I'll always love that you call Damon before everyone else. <3

- Jenna is half clued in! Yay! Now fill her in, fill Matt in too and we can all be happy.

- Jeremy/Bonnie is still random but keeps on being so adorable that I want to squish them. Wtf.

- Caroline I love you to pieces and I actually ached for you this week. ;________;

- Tyler: I get you, but srsly, torturing? That = not okay even if she lied to you. You deserved that scolding. Btw, don't stick with the other wolves, thanks, me.

- Jules and friend: gtfo my show, thanks.

- STEFAN HOW SO ADORABLE. I just. Idek when I started being all OMG STEFAN as well but this week I wanted to hug him all of the time. xD also when he brought all the girls over at Caroline's = <333333333. I'd still do your brother rather than you but ilu too.

- Okay. I'll admit it for good: I ship Stefan/Elena way too hard for me to be sane. But. THEY'RE ADORABLE. Dark side, please give me the cookies I deserve for shipping the main het couple.

- WTF IS JOHN PLOTTING WITH ISOBEL AND KATHERINE ANYWAY? Show I <3 that you always throw new stuff at people every time.

- Damon and Stefan almost single-handedly taking all the wolves was some of the most badass stuff seen in this show.

- I forgot whatever else I had to say, but whatever. Show, keep on being awesome and making me happy.

5. Okay, so, no bullet points because otherwise this'd become way too much of a clusterfuck, but: GOD SHOW I LOVE YOU.

This probably won't make much sense because I've been pretty much enjoying this season - I might have had my problems but it's not like I ever thought that the show got bad - but this episode made me realize that I hadn't really enjoyed SPN this much since the Bobby episode, I think. I just - SAM I CAN LOVE YOU AGAIN. As soon as the Sam/Dean hug happened I just started making heart-shaped eyes at everything (and at Sam). Also Jared you can act - woah. Anyway, let's go briefly by points that are not of the bullet kind. xD

Sam: BABY I LOVE YOU AGAIN. Jesus I had missed his resouled face. (Also I knew that sticking with liking Sam pays off most times. XD) I just - he hugged Dean. He hugged Bobby. He cared about shit. He was smart while being reasonable. In the end he wasn't pissed off at Dean even if he made his point (which I appreciated a lot). Also his hurt face whenever Bobby slammed the phone in his face was priceless, poor baby. Also I died when he was all like 'OMG I KILLED YOU AND CAS' in the beginning but then went like 'OMG CAS IS ALIVE? <333'. Just. That was. SO CUTE. Tho the only thing I didn't like about Sam in this ep is Cas-related, but more on the Cas part. xD

Dean: baby, I get you, but ugh, why shoving always shit under a rug? I'm just glad that Sam came clean with him in the end because if it had dragged on for more than two eps it'd have been a bad fallout. But. DEAN BEING ALL LIKE 'OMG :DDDD' AT SAM BEING SAM. And 'who likes virgins and gold?' 'P. Diddy' -> I DIED. XD Seriously Dean never change. Except when it comes to talking about your feelings. And LOL at the scene where he didn't manage to take the sword out of the stone. XD

Bobby: thanks for being always awesome. Also I can't blame him for not being that excited at being all friendly with Sam like he didn't try to kill him the day before. Also Bobby eating dinner alone when Dean shut the phone at him kind of made me go ;________;. He needs more company.

Cas: BABY WHY JUST TWO SCENES. Okay no it wasn't a lot but it was worth it. The one with Dean was pretty much spot-on ('I'm not a human doctor' -> CAS NEVER CHANGE) and tbh the scolding was kind of deserved. And with Sam he was just - PRECIOUS. SO PRECIOUS. AND HE WANTED TO HUG SAM. HE ACTUALLY WAS ABOUT TO DO IT. Yeah, as everyone guessed the only thing I'm pissed at Sam for is that he didn't hug the angel, damn him. I mean, WE WERE ABOUT TO GET A CAS HUG AFTER THREE SEASONS *headdesk* at this point I vouch for Bobby to do it. Anyway I also appreciated that Cas clued Sam in and didn't apparently try to sugar-coat stuff too much. Oh god I HAVE THE SAM/CAS BFFs THING BACK. <333

Plot: for crack on a stick, it was actually pretty awesome. O__O Also in the end we basically had the monster to create all monsters? Woah. And we thought the devil was hard to beat. Surely they have big plans. If only the CGI was better. /sarcasm anyway, I ended up really enjoying the whole plot as well, regardless of Sam being resouled or not. But yeah, this show definitely works better with Sam being SAM, you know. This one goes in my S5 top five for sure. <3

Okay, that's it. Phew. It was HARD. Now, plan for February: SFU S4 and S5, Justified and Treme. Let's see if I manage. Also because I'm sure I'll like both Treme and Justified when I manage to see them.

STEFAN AND ELENA ARE UNBRIDLED PRECIOUSNESS. I LAHV AND SHIP THEM SOOOO HARD. I mean, it's surprising to me because I don't really do Het and far less canon het for that matter but they are so freaking adorbs.
And Damon and Alaric are booooyfreeeeenz <3 <3 But yes, IDG why Alaric has like three minutes of screentime and that stranger bitch John gets to show up for like an entire episode. Plz get out kthbai.
I love Tyler but I kind of want to kick him where he'll remember me for a very long time. IDK IDK.
the female ghost of tom joad: the vampire porn I WENT DARKSIDEjanie_tangerine on February 5th, 2011 11:15 pm (UTC)
AREN'T THEY JUST? I want to squish them forever and ever and see them being all cute for eternity. Idk I mean I don't do het, I don't do CANON het, I don't do main canon het and sure as hell I don't do vampire/human, but I'm so all OMG OMG OMG I LOVE THEM it isn't even funny. They are adorbs indeeed. <3333 HECK I EVEN HAVE AN ICON IDEK

Hahahaa yeah they so are. And Alaric needs more to do. Possibly including a lot of talking with Damon and bffness and possibly getting drunk together again. ;)

And yeah I learned to <33 Tyler but ugh come ON don't do stupid shit okay? And don't get Caroline hurt. ;___;

Fuck me, why am I not watching the Vampire Porn? I mean, seriously: DAVID ANDERS. Mah boyfriend. Especially since I need a new show and everything. I think I just need to force myself through those first few episodes and get to the awesome.

I feel 100% EXACTLY the same way about Sherlock (though I have yet to see the 3rd ep). The show is begging me to slash it. It's in your face, all the time. And I love both individually. And yet I just can't slash it. I don't. Which is weird, because I was super gung-ho on the Jude Law/RDJ slash. Also? I'm totally watching 100% for Rupert Graves. I was kind of 'meh' on the whole concept of watching the show, but then he came on the screen, and I was like, "SOLD!!!" I love him so much it actually hurts me. Young Jolyon from the Forsyte Saga! Freddy from A Room with a View! I LOVE HIM!!!!! I have loved him for so many years. *flail*
the female ghost of tom joad: sherlock (bbc)janie_tangerine on February 5th, 2011 11:12 pm (UTC)
WHY AREN'T YOU WATCHING THE VAMPIRE PORN? IT SUCKS JUST FOR THE FIRST FIVE/SIX EPS, THEN IT GETS SO AWESOME YOU CAN'T COUNT ITS AWESOMENESS. Do it. And your boyfriend is being amaaazing. Do it. I know, the beginning is corny/crap, but then it's so worth it.

I KNOW REALLY? It's just. It's there. it's practically canon. But. I can't slash them really. And I don't think it's a question of finding them attractive or not because heck I shipped Dan/Rorschach in Watchmen and I don't find either attractive either movie or comic wise but idk. I just go like 'PLATONIC' all over. Or maybe it's that Sherlock/Lestrade fits more of my shipping tropes, idk. And I LIKE YOUR RUPERT GRAVES LIKING. If he wasn't in it I'd have watched it like next year, lol. But I've been basically wanting to jump him since Maurice (MERCHANT/IVORY FTW by the way, A Room With A View iz awesome as well) and yeah as soon as he showed up I was like 'MY INTEREST: YOU HAVE IT'. XD
elliotsmelliot: Boardwalk Empire Margaret Hatelliotsmelliot on February 5th, 2011 10:51 pm (UTC)
Cool - you caught up with Boardwalk Empire!

I find Van Alden tiresome too. I liked the twist with Lucky and his vapid drowning murder, but most of the time I find him too over the top. Plus I want him to just let Nucky get on with his crimes!

Jimmy really grew on me. I started off wanting to slap him, but then he grew fascinating and unpredictable.

Chalky is awesome and thinks you should finish his great grandson's Omar show!

Margaret impressed me by being more than just the sad pretty girl that everyone liked. She and Richard are my favourites. I saw a lot of Richard/Jimmy posted on a BE site, so you are not alone!

the female ghost of tom joad: boardwalk empirejanie_tangerine on February 5th, 2011 11:02 pm (UTC)
I had to at some point!

Yeah that's the point. I can't exactly say that he's a bastard because he's just well, over the top, but word on the gets tiresome. I just hope that next season he has a faith crisis or something of the kind because that might get more interesting than his ranting. ;) Also yeah, let Nucky be his own criminal! :D

Jimmy grew on me as well. I've always been 50/50 on him, but towards the end I learned to like him a lot. And ha, yeah, Richard/Jimmy seems kinda popular, which is good for me. I can catch some fic. ;) Also I swear to Chalky that I'll finish his grandson's show as soon as I'm done with Six Feet Under..

Margaret impressed me so much as well! In the beginning she seemed to be heading that way but I really liked that she got to be her own character apart from that. I love her a lot. And yeah Richard totally has a spot in my top five. :D
i want to huggle you (and your little dog, too): srs bsnzblue_fjords on February 5th, 2011 10:51 pm (UTC)
Eliot/Hardison/Parker is my OT3, too. Especially in that ep where Eliot and Hardison are handcuffed together for most of the show. LOVE. And "The Rashomon Job" is just the funniest damn thing.

And I agree w/ all points on your SPN review. I'm not too thrilled that they went w/ a young beautiful girl again for their Big Bad. I got rather sick of Lilith. But I think it's an interesting premise. And will necessitate more Cas screen time. :) I had not realized how much I had missed Sammy until he gave his puppy dog eyes. Damn. Glad to have him back!
the female ghost of tom joad: leverage parker/hardisonjanie_tangerine on February 5th, 2011 11:07 pm (UTC)
They're so amazing! :DDD

that ep where Eliot and Hardison are handcuffed together for most of the show.

THAT'S SO IN MY TOP TEN. AWESOME EP SO MUCH.

Ha at least this round she isn't underage and won't creep me out as much as Lilith used to? *rolls eyes* but yeah, I like the premise and MOAR CAS IS ALWAYS GOOD.

I had not realized how much I had missed Sammy until he gave his puppy dog eyes. Damn. Glad to have him back!

ME TOO. I'm all like 'SAM I LOVE YOUR FACE AND IT FEELS GOOD TO LOVE IT right now. ;)
(Deleted comment)
the female ghost of tom joad: leverage eliot/parker/hardisonjanie_tangerine on February 5th, 2011 11:05 pm (UTC)
Lol I do OT3s a lot but it's rarely a case of liking all the single ships equally and the overall threesome more than the single ships, so yeah Eliot/Parker/Hardison is totally a case of amazingness in shipping terms. ;) And lol I love the original movie hard so clearly I love that trope but that ep was so good! :DDDD

OH YES I SAW THAT ON KRYS' JOURNAL AND I DIED OF THE AWESOME. Jared they should give you moar credit. You're awesomesauce.

I'm excited too! :D
Terra: SNDean-penguinfaery on February 6th, 2011 02:08 am (UTC)
THAT EPISODE MADE ME SO HAPPY.

SO HAPPY.

:D

ME AS WELL :DDD I FELT LIKE HUGGING IT OR SOMETHING. :DDDD
Patent Counsel for Adrian Veidt and Tony Stark: SPN iCasakemi42 on February 6th, 2011 02:11 am (UTC)
The Sam/Dean reunion was the first good one I have seen in Show to date. And Cas wanting hugs from Sam was precious.
the female ghost of tom joad: supernatural castiel 3.0janie_tangerine on February 6th, 2011 10:18 am (UTC)
My favorite is probably the Lazarus Rising one still but mmm yeah this one comes close. I like. And ha yeah Cas = preciousness incarnated. <3
catoasapun: [SPN] Sammy neck nhjdashnkascatoasapun on February 6th, 2011 02:22 am (UTC)
I don't find either of the leads attractive in the 'OMG HOT' sense. They're both totally nailing their roles, but none of them clicks for me in that sense.
I FEEL THE SAME WAY! I'm not, like, attracted to either one of them. HOWEVER, I think I do ship it. Most of the time anyway. Weird, no?

You already know my thoughts on Boardwalk Empire. XD

But yeah, this show definitely works better with Sam being SAM, you know
WORD. I was done with dick!Sam ages ago. I like Sam best when he's, you know, Sam.
the female ghost of tom joad: supernatural samjanie_tangerine on February 6th, 2011 10:22 am (UTC)
Good to know I'm not the only one! :D I kind of ship it in the default way, but if I have to actively do it then I can't go there. Wtf is up with me.

;) <3

I was done with him as well but I hadn't realized how MUCH I actually missed Sam's soul until now. AND I'M GLAD IT'S BACK. :DDD
...a kind of sweet metaphysical blur...: soullesshitlikehammers on February 6th, 2011 02:43 am (UTC)
SPN! I wish I was as articulate as you about the whole thing, but I'm sick and I've slept the day away, so I just have flaily hands about it, mostly. That, and the fact that people I talk to elsewhere have finally come around to the "Jared has actually grown into a very talented actor who does not get the credit he deserves" after seeing last night's ep, which makes me TEN KINDS OF HAPPY. Because, as you said, he really can act! That was my favorite part about robo!Sam, that we finally SAW, for SERIOUS, just what he's capable of conveying.

I'm gonna shut up now, though, because I'm babbling and being rambley, and no one wants that.
the female ghost of tom joad: supernatural sam kills you with his braijanie_tangerine on February 6th, 2011 10:24 am (UTC)
Lol idk why I start like OMG FLAIL and then I become actually articulated but this ep was so good, mm. And word on the flaily hands and WORD on Jared. Not that I ever thought he was bad but comparing this episode to how he acted for the entire first half of S6? Wow. Not appreciated enough INDEED. He has the chops! And yeah that's robo!Sam's redeeming quality I guess. ;)

Ff, ramble as much as you like. :DDD
A.: team free willvella_amor_dm on February 6th, 2011 09:14 am (UTC)
1. i've never actually followed or seen Sherlock Holmes stuff before this show, and the only reason i picked it up is because one of my flisters is obsessed and was all 'what!? why have you not seen it yet? GO. NOW.' XD ...but omg i love the show, and i do agree that i won't be throwing myself at either of the leads but i can still ship them - they belong together ;D

4. sorta skipping some of what you've said coz i haven't seen the latest ep yet... but this: I actually cried for real when Rose died,? ME TOO! ;____________; it was such a beautiful scene!

5. re-souled Sammy si so much love :D i forgot how much i appreciated him! <333333 As for Dean, he tries, he really does but sometimes he's not too good at making the right choices. actually scratch that, he's pretty good... except when it comes to Sam -_- as for the ep, i didn't think it was 'omg amazing, best ever!' (sorry!) but i like where they're going with the plot :D
the female ghost of tom joad: supernatural team free will #3janie_tangerine on February 6th, 2011 10:28 am (UTC)
1. It's a very good show! :D and well if it had been total crap in comparison to book canon I probably wouldn't have stuck with it but I just love their take on it. And ha I can ship them in a 'oh yeah platonic soulmates' way but.. idk I can't go beyond that. But I'm weird and I have strange shipping patterns. ;)

4. IKR? IT WAS HEARTBREAKING DAMMIT. AND I WASN'T EVEN SUPPOSED TO CARE ABOUT ROSE THAT MUCH BUT IDEK I DID. ;_______________________; (this last one was AWESOME btw. WATCH IT!)

5. He IIISSSSSS. <333333333333333333333 he just made me remember all that's good about Sam being SAM. *sigh* and yeah Dean is good at making choices except when it comes to a) Sam b) his own well-being *snorts and pats him* and well the ep won't go into my top five favorites ever as well, but in the S6 top five? For now it totally has a spot. ;)
A.vella_amor_dm on February 11th, 2011 12:21 pm (UTC)
4. i watched and now you've read my thoughts so this comment is kind of redundant :/

5. he just made me remember all that's good about Sam being SAM WORD!

DAMON ;__________; damn I want to hug him so hard. Why can't I? I swear I'd do a very thorough job. I do! ;) and yeah, well, anything getting His Prettiness wet and naked is appreciated here. ;) and HECK YES that was some tension indeed! Also I'm for David Anders/anyone pretty enough to stand his awesomeness, so I'm totes with you. ;)
Ani: [Spn] Samsoundoftrees on February 6th, 2011 06:54 pm (UTC)
but this episode made me realize that I hadn't really enjoyed SPN this much since the Bobby episode, I think. I just - SAM I CAN LOVE YOU AGAIN.
this, this and this! I missed Sammy so much and I didn't even realize how much my love for the show clings on this little geek.

This also was the first time that I somehow understood why some people ship Sam/Cas. Ahhh, I'm a bad girl!
the female ghost of tom joad: supernatural samjanie_tangerine on February 7th, 2011 10:03 pm (UTC)
I knooow. ;___; *hugs Sam* okay, I pretty much always liked him (even in S4, which I guess testifies actual attachment XD) but I hadn't realized how -much- I missed him already since he came back. SAAAM. ;___; I'm mostly usually sidetracked by the fact that I'm always invested more in someone else but right now I'm all like SAM ILU NEVER CHANGE.

and ha, awesome! XD well I don't really do Sam/Cas regularly but I like to read it at times and I think they're pretty cute and they have an interesting dynamic, though I prefer them when they're all BFFs. ;)
Emerald Embersemerald_embers on February 7th, 2011 07:18 pm (UTC)
Justified is probably a good show in its own right but the important question is this; do you fancy Timothy Olyphant?

Because me and my sister do and it is the show of EXCITING NOISES, because we can't help it, EVERY DAMN TIME HE LOOKS UP OR LOOKS AWAY AND BACK OR GENERALLY HAS EYES WE DIE.
the female ghost of tom joad: deadwood trixiejanie_tangerine on February 7th, 2011 07:24 pm (UTC)
I can guarantee you that when I was watching Deadwood I spent a good number of moments fancying Timothy Olyphant, except during the first half of S2 when his character was doing shit I didn't care for.

Which is mostly the number one reason I want to watch Justified. I mean IT'S TIMOTHY OLYPHANT IN A COWBOY HAT AGAIN I can't ask for more especially since Deadwood is probably my objectively favorite show. ;) ;) ;) AND I CAN SO GET YOU AND YOUR SISTER. *uses wrong icon but apparently I don't have any Deadwood with his face*
Emerald Embersemerald_embers on February 7th, 2011 07:33 pm (UTC)
It's so funny, in Deadwood, 90% of the time I have literally no idea of what he's up to because I'm distracted by the pretty. Now, if you ask me what the OTHER characters are up to...

Justified is 85% Timothy Olyphant being ridiculously gorgeous omfg, and 15% other people being evil or awesome (or both).

Lol well can't blame you really <333 though basically for me Deadwood is like 'EVERYTHING I WANT IN A SHOW XD' so I did pay attention to stuff. Still. HE WAS VERY SEXY. XD

SAM IS BACK. I kept putting off watching the ep because I feel like this season has been designed specifically to cause me great pain and irritation thus far, but then I watched it this afternoon and my boy was back and having feelings and admonishing Dean for stealing diaries and my heart is very full, okay? <333

I want Cas to get a hug. I mean he clearly wanted one. It's only fair.

The actual plot with the dragon people and the bad CGI didn't work for me, but eh, I don't really watch for the plot anyway. Sam is Sam again so all is right in my world.

On to vampires: Tyler ticked me off. A lot. I should probably be more understanding but...CAROLINE. The boy's got some work to do if he wants me to fangirl over him again. ;)

The Damon and Stefan versus all the werewolves ever scene was completely badass. I love when they do stuff like that. And as always there's never enough Alaric, but the fact that he and Damon are actual BFFs now is awesome.

I'm so glad you're watching Sherlock! I adore that show.

ETA: You're going to start watching Justified? *squees* I'm 95% certain that Timothy Olyphant is the sexiest person on the planet. And no one wears a cowboy hat like that man. No one.

I KNOW. SAM, MY LOVE FOR YOU IS BACK FULL FORCE. That was pretty much all I needed to like the episode tbh. ;) ;) AND THE HUGS. OMG. <33333333333333 and yeah, Cas should get a hug. Come on people. Someone give him one! Heck if Sam and Dean are that dim just, idk, GET BOBBY TO DO IT! Whatever. Please. Srsly.

The plot was what it was but tbh I was like 'omg crack and Dean cracking P. Diddy jokes and sucking at taking swords out of stones OMG LOL'. I'm happy with little.

Tyler was an idiot this round, that's for sure. :((( And Caroline was fierce. And yeah he has to do a lot of work here. Also I'll always love Damon and Stefan being badasses. <333333 and hahah yeah Damon and Alaric are SO CANON BFFS AND IT MAKES ME GLEE.

Needs moar Alaric though.

Sherlock is awesome! :DDDD

And yes I am! Heck I need to half-fill the Deadwood shaped hole in my life. *mourns* And mmm yes that man CAN be sexy and can totally rock the hat. ;) ;) ;)
