Post title nicked from this. Luuuulz! It is now my new favorite question ever, jsyk.

I feel like I need macro-speak detox or something. This is a post where I'll share some of my reactions to recent TV episodes. You know EXACTLY which common macro phrase, that I'm pretty sure I've used here before, I am doing my damnedest to fight off. -_- Anyway, these aren't deep or anything because I failed to take notes. Not that I ever do, but I think I have nearly two weeks' worth of episodes to recap, so just don't expect the usual tl;dr. ;)

Heroes, 3x20: Cold Snap

Micah FTW! \o/ This is nothing new, but still. Also, I love his propension to steal money from ATMs, haha. HOWEVER. Puberty has hit like the fin of an angry cod. The voice totally threw me for a loop. O_o!!

Everything to do with baby Matt Parkman is satisfying me to a level I haven't been with this show for a while. Yay! I mean, except for when Nathan is onscreen. But that goes without saying.

When Mohinder was like, "I can't do anything for [Daphne] here," I kept hearing Temperance Brennan say "btw, you're not a real medical doctor" and it made me LOL. Oh, ~Dr. Suresh~! <3

o hai random HRG/Tracy. Yes plz.

Tracy's death scene was brilliant. And I hope it's a death that sticks, not simply because it reduces the odds of other characters *cough* buying the farm this season (which would be a lame reason even by my standards) but because it was heroic and sacrificial and most importantly, made sense in the character's story. Besides, Ali Larter can come back to play the last triplet, so it's not like we need to part with her yet. (LOL!)

Why is Angela so fierce? WHO CARES. SHE JUST IS. <3 As evidence by her awesomely silver-tongued friend/sister/ex in that restaurant whose umbrella she stole on her way out. AMAZING.

Also with the awesome: Peter Petrelli. His resilience when it comes to his family is heartbreakingly wonderful. <3

It's sad that Daphne had to die, but I thought her last scene was gorgeous. The transition between Matt's ~trail in the sky~ and her heartrate monitor's flatline was flawless, and almost poetic. I enjoyed it muchly. I also enjoyed Mohinder's quiet offer of comfort at the end. I believe it was just the right thing.

I do have to mention, though, that Matt's concept of flying as the most romantic thing totally has me wondering what went on that one time Nathan flew him to Texas in "Powerless" (2x11). Said Nathan, "we are never talking about that EVER AGAIN OMFG!" (he didn't say OMFG but you could tell he was thinking it.) I say to all of this: IIINTERESTING!


In conclusion: R.I.P. Daphne, R.I.P. Tracy, welcome back Micah and Bryan Fuller! :D

LOL, I lied. My Heroes ~review~ kind of does border on tl;dr.

Chuck, 2x17: Chuck Vs. The Predator

Chuck Bartowski: now with 150% more BALLS! Haha. Sucks that Orion died (for like a minute I thought it might be his dad, lmao) but I like the fact that he seems to be gaining (stealing?) independence. I like it veeery much.

House, 5x18: Here Kitty

Kutner finds new ways every week to make me love him more. ♥

Poor Taub.

Now I'mma speculate about an ominous spoiler about the end of the season, so don't read if you want to be surprised.

***SPOILERS BEGIN*** (highlight below to read)
You know how the spoiler outlets are telling us about a major upcoming death that'll ~affect~ everyone and House in a major way? I definitely think Taub is gonna pull a Dennis Gant in the finale. And in case you didn't watch ER when it was good: Dennis Gant = overachieving, overpressured intern who jumped on the train tracks in Season 2. Interestingly, he was played by Omar Epps. So, in a nutshell, my money's on Taub killing himself. :O

Lost, 5x09: He's Our You

I always forget to recap my Lost thoughts, what's wrong with me? D: Anyway, show is rocking hardcore this season, and this week's ep was no exception. :D

LOL SAYID ON TRUTH SERUM! That was seriously hilarious. I love Sayid and Naveen and the show and fhgASHKL. Awesome episode.

I've just gotta say, Jin had better be still alive, Darlton! >:|

Bones, 4x17: The Salt In The Wounds

Pregnancy pacts are so mind-numbingly stupid, it makes me want to find the nearest hammer and bash my head in repeatedly. I swear. I can't fathom how kids can be that short-sighted idiotic. I really can't.

Booth! ♥ (And see, this type of thing is why I can't at all see him being OK with that thing the spoilers might or might not be hinting at.)

ANGELA/HODGINS!! <3 You know what I don't get, though? Angela wanted kids with Jack. "Only like a million of 'em," even. :/

New intern was kind of sweet, but I just want mah Wendell Bray back already!

Sweets's challenge to Angela should prove interesting, heh. XD

I believe that is all? FOX needs to stop screwing around with their schedule, because I just sat here forever trying to figure out what shows aired on what night, and that's just nonsense. So stop it FOX, kthx.

ETA: I forgot Supernatural! *gasps*

Supernatural, 4x16: On The Head Of A Pin

Seriously, I don't think this episode could've been any heavier on the Dean/Castiel if it TRIED. I didn't before think that ship had any relevant basis in canon, but clearly this episode intended to rectify that. CLEARLY.

Mentions of John W. always make me happy, but poor Dean. This incarnation of Alastair was so naaaaasty, omgs! D:

I dun like mah Sammy boi drinking the demon blood. :( Does that make him a vamp? Lolz. Sammy Cullen, y/n/gtfo? I do like that he was all, "I'mma save my brother now, bitchez!"


• 4x17: Life Is Terrible

... Episode is all kinds of wondersome!!!

Also, epic lulz @ Smith & Wesson (I c wut u did thar, Kripke) checking out the Ghostfacers' website. XD

ETA (bis): I also forgot about The Office! Jeez.

The Office, 5x19: New Boss

I am SO GLAD Michael had the nerve to quit. Because, sure, he's a moron, but that doesn't excuse the shitty way corporate have been treating for FIFTEEN YEARS. Way to go, Mr. Scott.

I also find it interesting how, as the new boss starts, we're more or less subtly shown how a fairly smart guy (Jim) gradually becomes a bumbling idiot. I think it would be sort of epic if, years down the line, he became Michael. I can live with the thought that after a while, ~originally fairly smart~ Michael (if such a guy ever existed) chose to embrace his own brand of ~humor~.

• 5x20: Two Weeks Notice

GO PAM! I'm so happy somebody went with Michael, and I'm so happy that it was her. :D

Me too me too! I thought he might be his Dad (I got a theory his whole intersect problem started with his missing dad). And that he is gaining independence.

Everything you said about Heroes is SPOT ON! *high five* This was an astonishingly good episode, even without Sylar! But yeah, I wonder if Micah and Walt from Lost were hanging out in puberty hiatus land together, haha.

Also, so glad Matt can't actually fly. Making that a hallucination was such a lovely sendoff for Daphne (although, I now feel less inclined to follow Brea Grant on Twitter since there won't be anymore Grant/Grunny love!)

Puberty has hit like the fin of an angry cod. The voice totally threw me for a loop. O_o!!

Cause it's only made worse when you feel likeEclipse was not that long ago and then we were friends with an enthused and gorgeous kid who we all fangiled for being a kid. It was like "wait, WTF, when did he grow up?" LOL <3 Noah.

but because it was heroic and sacrificial and most importantly, made sense in the character's story

True that. And it was brilliantly shot (for some reason ever since Bryan Fuller has been back the cinematography and the angles on this show have gone right back to ssn1 brilliance. And I totally loved the Danko opening - I kept thinking voicing in my head over it "Gillette... the best a man can get" LOL)

R.I.P. Daphne

Um, ah, she died? How did I miss that? Probably was too buy watching Matt breaking down and pondering about the flight thing. *shrugs*


LOL just watched that one tonight. Funny as!

This incarnation of Alastair was so naaaaasty

Man I hearted that Alastair like nothing else! That actor was DAMN GOOD at the character! Episode was awesometastic. And I just got to see Fridays as well which was a damn sight confusing (I was running parrallel universe theories through my head trying to work that one out) but was pretty good also and a nice diversion considering how the previous week had ended :D

Agreed completely on Noah Gray-Cabey, LOL. Aw.

I'm afraid Daphne's well and truly dead. I guess they didn't spell it out for everybody, so if you haven't watched a lot of medical dramas or been lucky enough to not witness someone dying in a hospital, it's easy to miss the connection between flatlining monitor and invariable death.
