Aaaaah, lately TV is all I ever make time to post about anymore! I mean, the news aren't many:

- I have yet another cold at the moment, so, meh.
- My fandom ~~secret~~ was finally posted yesterday! XD (#130, obviously.)
- Depending on the future of my employment here, I may or may not be going to the Jules Verne Festival Lost event. Darlton are gonna be there, and it will be legendepic, and I hope I can go omg!

Hopefully I'll have a more substantial post one of these days. In the meantime, TV!

Heroes, 3x18: Exposed

LYLE!!! He lives. The Claire and Alex shenanigans were kind of hilarious, and once again Sandra proves she is at least as awesome as her morally gray husband. Also, LOL @ Mr. Muggles and the sandwich. XD All in all, I really liked Alex and wouldn't mind seeing him again. And I thought Claire had a couple of awesome lines! I'm gonna be so sad if/when Noah and Sandra actually divorce. ;_;

... because I love HRG, "warts and all". I kind of adore how he subtly dialled up Nathan's ambivalence by personally threatening Peter's safety. Gods, that was so awesome. I think it's so great that he realizes just how important Peter is to Nathan and plays on it so surely.

And sure enough, Nathan fleeeeeew to Peter's rescue, omfgyay! I totally cheered, hee. And then they broke my heart again, what with Peter literally CRYING as he asks Nathan why he's doing what he's doing, and oh lawd. My heart. It weeps. "Bye, Nathan." kHALKJ;K!!1! <\3

Elsewhere, Angela says she'll never betray Nathan. Nathan makes a "Wat. You and I must not have the same definition of ~betray~. Anyway..." face. I almost choke on my lulz. No, seriously, go back to that scene. It's fucking hilarious. XD

Also loved the Matt and Peter stuff. To see Peter enjoying Matt's ability so much was nothing short of jubilatory. In the same category, Matt's 'SUP BITCHEZ nod to the Building 26 surveillance cameras. I approve.

Was this the last we saw of Luke? I'd be happy to think so. He's so emo and clingy, it's almost enough to make Sylar seem nonchalant. YOU KNOW THAT'S A HUGE ACHIEVEMENT. Ugh. Anyhow! The Sylar stuff, I guess is pretty solid, except that THEY COMPLETELY MESSED UP HIS AGE! (The capslock is to give you an idea of my rage.) Now, I'd like to hear from the long-time "Peter & Sylar = twins!" theorists here. My canon recollection is a little rusty as far as Sylar's established age is concerned - was there ever any indication that he could, in fact, BE THIRTY-FUCKING-FOUR YEARS OLD? (I'm around kids all day and, I don't care what the casting call says, I am pretty damn sure 1980 Gabriel was at least 5.) Aside from that, I'm rather liking the storyline, though I'm not sure I'm entirely on-board with the victimization of Sylar.

I still 100% believe Rebel is Micah, and I can't really figure out why he would want Doyle saved. I'm guessing it's a radical, "leave no mutant behind" type of thing where he won't allow himself to judge who does or doesn't deserve his help, but even then, mustn't there be heaps of other people who could use a hand in escaping Danko's craziness? (I guess my profound distaste for the Doyle character just won't let me accept that, lulz, the Heroes people liked the actor and character so much that they just had to bring him back.)

Anyway, talking of Danko's craziness, the guy is certifiably mental! :o Sucks to be Matt right now.

In conclusion: I can has new episode tiems nao?

Chuck, 2x15: Chuck Versus The Beefcake


I... kind of like the whole Cole/Sarah thing? (omg don't hurt me, Heather! :p) I just hate that Chuck puts himself through so much heartache for nothing. I mean, I wish I could see a happy ending for he and Sarah, but though I know when the show ends (IN VERY MANY SEASONS!) they'll probably get one, at the moment I just don't see how Chuck's puppy love is doing him any favors.

Good cliffhanger! I hope Cole doesn't turn out to have been a triple-crossing bastard. XD Also, this is totally random but I think I could definitely live with seeing Bryce again anytime. Preferably soon. :D (And when he next appears, it'd be nice to see some more BFF-ness between him and Chuck.)

Lost, 5x08: LaFleur


Feel free to call me a miscreant, but I am totally aboard USS Jim/Juliet and don't see myself changing ships any time soon. You know why? Because they've known each other for over THREE YEARS. That's eight and a half times as long as Kate and Sawyer have known each other. So, my point is, they know each other, and I can actually buy that they fell in love over time. And they are ADORABLE together, can't forget that.

And that's the main thing I have to say about this episode, lmao. Everything else in it was awesome too. Especially Richard. <3

The Office, 5x16: Blood Drive

'Twas an okay episode. I wasn't blown away or anything, but it was all right. And I hope Oscar joins Andy on one of his honeymoons.

ER, 15x18: What We Do

lolyeah, so I watched ER again for the first time since Luka and Abby's wedding episode. Lulz.

So, anyway, I know he's not the same Carter (and omg, how sad is it that they all call him "Dr. Carter" or "John" now? It's supposed to be just CARTER!!! ;_;) and they made him this ~old sage~ constantly dispensing ~invaluable wisdom~ (which, I'm sorry, but LMAO) but I swear to gods if those bastards kill him, I will go postal. As in, actually write and stamp a very angry and bitter letter, and find an address to mail it to. >:|

Neela's Aussie boy is a cutie. I like that he and Morris are BFF. But is there any chance at all for Ray to come back again? lols.

Morris and his gf = I cried, not gonna lie. Damn you, ER!

The whole "srs bsns ER documentary!" thing has been done before, on this show, TWICE already (1x08 + 4x01), so I think that was kind of lame, but whatever.

Also, obviously I can see the Sam/Uncle Jesse pairing coming from a mile away, but I don't mind too much. Mostly because I don't know them enough to care. XD 'Cause yeah, most of the people now on the show, I have not a clue about. Heh.

Anyway. More importantly: omgomgomgomgomgogmgomgomgomg want next episode so much omgomgomgomgomg! I think I'm gonna implode from fangirly glee. :DDD

Battlestar Galactica, 4x18: Islanded In A Stream Of Stars

How gorgeous are the episode titles for this show? I ask you. How gorgeous? <3333

This is going to be mostly or entirely superficial because the show is breaking my soul so much. omfg. <\3

"LISTEN TO ME FOR ONE GODSDAMN MINUTE!" Oh, Lee. Lee and his crazy hair. Defending Galactica's honor. Sigh. Why so hawt?

Oh gods, Gaius/"Caprica" Six? I still ship it. Like burning. ;_; <3333

Ummmm, so did they cut a scene where Chief was put in the brig, lynched and/or airlocked? Did I miss something? It seems like after last episode, they should address the Chief situation, doesn't it?

Oh Boomer, what have you done? All of her scenes were so goddamn sad, too. :( Poor Hera. And HELO AND ATHENA OMFG. <\3 <\3 <\3

zomg, for a second I thought Kara was gonna kill herself, à la Dee! :o But frak, that moment with Lee! I was drawing hearts in the air. So sue me. The lighting of their faces was just... Well, I thought it was especially gorgeous! <3 And aww, "I'm here. You're here. It's all that matters." ahALJ;K! Epic.

As for Sam: o___O I think it's kind of cool how he's all Hybrid-like, but I miss "Kara's Sam" too. :( Wake uuuuup! ;_;

Also, Bill Adama made me bawl like a baby again. omg, EJO, stop it! ;_;

Tigh being all "frak ~our people~! The people here are my homies!" to Ellen was also made of win. You tell her, Saul!

Last but not least, I don't even want to think how emotional that funeral scene must have been for everyone involved to shoot, with Adama's trademark "So Say We All". Oh my gods!

IF THEY KILL CARTER I'M GONNA CUT A BITCH. FOR REALZ. He's always been my favorite on the show and ER was one of my first fandoms so YOU KNOW.

mmm... you do know Sam/Uncle Jesse used to be a thing? like, SERIOUS? and they broke up a few weeks ago? LOL

I HOPE ONE OF THE CAST MEMBERS WHO COME BACK IS GOING TO FIVE CARTER A KIDNEY OR STH. Also, I can't remember if his mom is still alive or sth but I wish she were there as she's MARY MCAWESOME


They did cut a scene with the Chief, Bear talks about it in his blog (there'll be an extended cut on the DVD!), the Chief is in the brig.
There's also a scene with Helo and Kara at Joe's that was cut, I think that's the one Tahmoh told us about!!! Getting drunk with a good friend when Eddie directed!


Ellen & Saul's opinions are like, what defines one's family? Blood? Time?

I'm sorry if I don't make much sense

Hee! I wanted to watch this week's episode as apparently next week's is the one with Doug and Carol and I wanted to have at least a vague idea of what was going on. XD

SRSLY! If they kill Carter, that would probably make the show Most Depressing Ever even above BSG, lol. How many regulars have they killed anyway? Sheesh!

And LMAO, no! I did not know Sam and Uncle Jesse had a ~history~! XD But how did her mother not know him? Is that because she has (I assume) Alzheimer's?

zomg, how sweet would it be if Benton, Carol or Doug gave Carter a kidney? (Who else is returning? lol) Awww, that's such a heartwarming thought. I have to say, though, wtf Carter WHY DID YOU NOT TELL YOUR WIFE? Ugh. I don't care if they're estranged or whatever, they've been through ~a lot~ together and she should know. :( I'm guessing TPTB couldn't get Thandie Newton to appear?

MARY McAWESOME RETURNING WOULD BE FANTASTIC! Wait, is there an ER wiki or something? We could find out. I know his dad's dead, because suddenly in his funeral episode they renamed him "Jack" when they had previously established his name as "Roland" (trufax: this accounts for roughly 33% of my ~raging hate~ for exec producer Jack Orman).

zomg, see, I knew they cut a scene! LOL. It's really obvious, IMO, and I think it would be even more so when watching last week's and this week's episodes back-to-back. And you're probably right about the Helo and Kara scene! Aww, I was looking forward to that. :( I'm so glad to hear the DVD will include a longer version of this episode! (Even if that ends up making it even sadder, heh. XD)

Come back, Sammy! :( *prays to the Lords of Kobol

lol, aw, you do make sense! Ellen's kind of like, "but we were here first!" and Saul's like, "whatevar, idgaf, 2000 IS JUST A NUMBER TO ME", and I'm like "Damn right! Bros before toasters!" XD

who got killed on ER? mmmm... FOREMAN! HAHAHAHAHAHA seriously even after 5 seasons I can't get over the fact that he was a med student who died on ER. Lucy Knight :(((( oh my heart, it broke, and she was killed by Mr Universe! Romano died because helicopters hate him very very much. Mark ;________; Pratt went splodey in the season premiere. Galant went splodey in Iraq. Ray lost his legs. Seriously, worst working place EVER.

Sam's mom just came back into her life, they had been estranged for 15 years when Sam ran away from home at age 15 and pregnant. She's ill and Sam's sister is in fashion and travelling a lot now so she askes Sam to move her to Chicago and look after her.

Sam&Uncle Jesse even lived together but then Sam's son and Uncle Jesse's daughter got into an accident and they were not supposed to go out that day but Uncle Jesse let them do it so... things got bad... but I think they're gonna get back together.

btw Ray came back for an episode this year already and keeps calling and texting and sending mixtapes to Neela ^^

Why do you hate Jack Orman? idk who he is

LOL, see? How ridiculous is that? I remember my brother and I were absolutely baffled that Jeannie Boulet, who had AIDS and hepatitis and who-knows-what else, made it out alive. XD

Oh, thanks for clearing that up. It kind of reminds me of Abby's mom, tbqh. LOL. And yeah, I'm betting they'll be ~reunited~ before show's end as well. (There is an ER wiki is! It's called TV Tropes! XD)

Awww, mix tapes!

Jack Orman, for me, was the embodiment of everything wrong with the show after seasons 6-7. He came in as a new exec producer (long after Neal Baer and all those good guys had left) and he was pretty much obsessed with Carter and Carby and much less interested in everything else and it grated on my nerves sooo much. >_>

oooh ok

you want to hear sth? I'm STILL shipping Carter/Anna Del Amico hehehehehehehehe omg season 4

lol Jeannie Boulet, she came back last year for an episode, I think her kid, who also has AIDS, was sick

omg I loooved Carter/Anna! I even wrote fanfic for them, LMAO. It was so lame. Then again, I was like, 14 years old? Looooools. But then I hated how Anna just up and left and broke Carter's heart. Aww.

LOL, it's like ER = Hotel California. Every one comes back at some point. XD Poor kid, though. Was he OK in the end?

(Someday, I vow to re/watch all of the show from beginning to end. Someday.)

ugh I hated how she left him for her asshole junkie husband grrrrrrrr
lol fanfic!!! the first fanfics I ever read were about ER!

for the final year, ALL the originals have come back! even the dead ones!

...I can't remember what happened to her kid. I think she's not with her cop boyfriend anymore though

oh yeah I want to watch it all again!

I hadn't thought that Luke made Sylar look nonchalant, BUT YOU ARE RIGHT!! Heh!

POOR MORGAN IS RIGHT! But I so wants Chuck, Morgan and Sarah as roommies FIC! I NEEDS IT!

Too bad no one will write it for me. Especially because the idea of Morgan walking around that house with morning wood to Sarah CRACKS ME UP!!

From: [identity profile] gossy16.livejournal.com
I just can't believe that kid's ability for superior whining. Like, wow. Shut up and be forever grateful to be alive still.

LMAO, I do believe that would be hilarious. XD Oh, this needs to happen! Although, I was thinking earlier, wouldn't Chuck living with him significantly endanger Morgan's life? I'm a bit surprised that Chuck disregarded any such concerns.

Date: 2009-03-07 11:48 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] afrocurl.livejournal.com
It might make a better cover right now for the three of them to be together, so that Sarah can protect Chuck, but not have to be "on" as his girlfriend all the time. OF COURSE her place is AWESOME and moving in with Chuck is a big STEP DOWN!

Morgan would think it was all part of a game of WoW or Command and Conquer. He was good with the planning, remember.

Date: 2009-03-08 03:26 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] gossy16.livejournal.com
But wouldn't Morgan have to wonder why Chuck's ex would want to move in with them?

Date: 2009-03-08 04:05 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] afrocurl.livejournal.com
He would, but I'm sure Sarah could come up with something. She's smart like that.

100 percent agreeing on Lost! I am NOT a shipper, as I don't do icon-making, or fic or whatever, but James (I refuse to call him Sawyer anymore, cos he totally isn't, and that's a good thing) and Juliet is EPIC.

Heroes, I'm not sure why Micah (come on, electronics manipulation -- if it's NOT Micah, I'll eat my hat) wants Doyle free. I think as a little kid he's not really aware of that dude's capabilities. It's just solidarity for his kind of people.

Date: 2009-03-08 03:28 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] gossy16.livejournal.com
*highfives* And I agree, he's come so far from "Sawyer" now, I really hope everyone keeps calling him Jim or James. He used to lie for a living. Not anymore.

Yeah, I think that makes sense. And he's also probably unaware of the ordeal Doyle put Claire and her family through just months earlier.

Nathan fleeeeeew to Peter's rescue, omfgyay! I totally cheered, hee. And then they broke my heart again, what with Peter literally CRYING as he asks Nathan why he's doing what he's doing, and oh lawd. My heart. It weeps. "Bye, Nathan." kHALKJ;K!!1! <\3

it killed me. ;_; Poor broken boys. But I love how this episode did show that Nathan hasn't been rotted completely (lol, but we both knew that anyway ;D)

Also loved the Matt and Peter stuff.

They were totally ~Jedi~. I was waiting for Obi-Wan to pop-up and go "~these are not the droids you're looking for~". It was hilarious (in a kind-of unintentional fashion mwhahaha!).

Luke needs to go die in a fire. Seriously. I can't stand that brat.

I still 100% believe Rebel is Micah, and I can't really figure out why he would want Doyle saved.

Yeah, I'm aboard Rebel!Micah theory now. And why does he want creepy!puppet-man saved? EEK. The man terrifies me. (And how did he survive anyhow? I was convinced he had died...?)

Now switchin' to LOST-gears.

but I am totally aboard USS Jim/Juliet and don't see myself changing ships any time soon.

I much prefer Sawyer/Juliet to Jack/Kate, Kate/Sawyer, Juliet/Jack or any variation of those. It makes much more sense, and Sawyer and Juliet are just awesome (while I think both Jack and Kate are PHAIL). Anywho, I'm gonna be pissed if Kate mucks up the new cute shippiness. JAMES, IF YOU BREAK JULIET'S HEART IMMA GONNA BREAK YOUR P33N.

Everything else in it was awesome too. Especially Richard. <3

So... the four-toed statues was, at one point, more than just a four-toed foot. My jaw dropped when we saw the whole statue (and then I woed when it vanished again). And Richard. Oh, Richard. I want to have his immortal babies. Make Nestor a regular now, plz.
