Obligatory TV update post... Well, early I had smushed my Leverage and Royal Pains thoughts together, so guess what? I'm going to do it again! I am nothing if not a creature of habit.
And, okay, I'm going to start out by feeling guilty because... I think I'm dropping Leverage? I don't know, it's the kind of show that I want
to like, and I like the people involved, and I think the show has such a nice feel
-- and yet none of that shakes the fact that I come to the end of an episode and go, "Huh. Okay. So there was another episode of that. *switches off TV*" This seems to be a continuing pattern with me, of shows that I appreciate and support but just can't actually watch
for whatever reason. Possibly my brain has now been conditioned to only enjoy cracky ridiculous nonsense. And, I mean, there were still bits of this week's show that I enjoyed -- mostly the Eliot/Hardison bickering (although was it just me or did that whole Star Trek thing not make any sense? So if the even ones are good, then why are they code word for situation bad? And, anyway, THE ODD ONES DO NOT SUCK, WHATEVER HARDISON STV IS TOTALLY AWESOME), and I did think the baddie of the week was interesting -- but, ehhh, I dunno. Ha, I love how I have to feel bad
it when I decide to watch less TV. Hey, self! This should be a good thing! Anyway.
Royal Pains! This is another one I kind of thought about dropping earlier but I'm glad I stuck with it because I think it's shaped up really well and now I truly, legitimately like it! A lot! I meant to post about it last week because OMFG DIVYA JUST TRY TO BE MORE AWESOME, WHY DON'T YOU except then she came out this week and was even more awesome
, augh, my brain can't even process. It's like TPTB decided to respond directly to my NEEDS MOAR DIVYA injunction because the last two episodes have been great on that front. Conversely I have been kind of mehhh on the recent Hank/Jill developments but, man, Hank is so friggen delightful and adorable. I apologize for calling him, err, "boring as hell" or something similar after the first episode. I keep going back and forth on Jill, though, I dunno. After "Crazy Love" I was on a definite off-again stage because, durrr, ( okay now this is spoilery )
AND THEN PETER JACOBSON WAS IN AN EPISODE. OMG. OMG. TAAAAAUB. EXCEPT NOT. I'm still not exactly sure why
I have such a honkin' huge crush on him but, well, there it is. And he was great. And again with Divya being awesome. Have I said that enough yet? I think I need to put together an addendum to my massive TV girlcrush list.
Other important news -- yes I am being lame and pimping my own pet project, but there are SERIOUS BUSINESS MATTERS
going down over at capslock_hood
so you best pay attention and pitch in.
Okay, there was also some blah blah my life is dumb blahhh wangst that I was going to tack onto this but, whatever. I can sum it up by saying: blah blah emo blah, I think I'll go embroider something and eat a peanut butter sandwich.
Oh, and I've started catching up with SG-1 again! It's significantly more entertaining than I remembered (I think because then I was watching it against SGA and, just, nothing
is more ridonkulous than that show; whereas now I'm watching it against anticipatory hatred of SGU and now I'm like teeeeeeam! Of people who are actually smart! I love you all!
