I have squee'd about it at length on Twitter, but I would be remiss not to mention it in here as well: Hawaii Five-O!



Oh my gods, I can't even believe how much I love it already. I watched the first couple of episodes back when they started airing and then I probably got ~too busy~ to keep up and I fell behind. But now I just finished catching up last week, and yeah, OH MY GODS. I have come up with a bullet-y list of why we should ALL be watching this show.

Pros:
- Kickass cast is freakin' kickass. I mean, I suppose Steve does have a lot of Gary-Stuesque qualities, but holy shit, son, this stuff is just so much fun to watch and root for! Really though, Steve's just the most prominent example because trust me; Kono, Danno, and Chin-Ho are all BAMF's in their own rights. Consistently.
- FUN. Fun, fun, fun! Partyin', partyin', yeah! This is a total, unabashed popcorn show brimming with action and comeuppances and crazy CRAZY shenanigans and other jubilatory treats. Amongst which is...
- The banter. It is SO DELIGHTFUL. The snark and the repartee and, underneath it all, the not-even-the-slightest-bit subverted friendship of Steve and Danny is a bottomless mine of gold.
- All of the main characters are being developed. They all have lives outside of Five-O that we get more or less expansive glimpses of. Always a plus, always leaves me wanting more. In a good way, I hasten to add!
- The camaraderie/team dynamics is already showing potential for, idek, THE WEST WING-scale greatness. I'm not even kidding, and some of you know I do not take that reference lightly. ;) To vaguely allude to something which I do not wish to spoil (heh), the whole gang gets themselves in a Serious Inextricable Predicament and just, the way they chose to stick together come what may was a thing of sheer beauty. *_*
- Obvious hotness. I mean, have you seen this cast? They do not always wear shirts. Just putting that out there. :p

Cons:
- I am now a lot more nervous about ever visiting Hawaii because OH SHIT THE VIOLENT CRIME RATE. lolol.

In short: show is fucking awesome and everybody needs to give it a go! Then tell me how much you loved it. ;)

And now, my flailings on the latest episode. H50: 1x20 )

I am also very much open to icon(-maker) recommendations for this fandom, if anybody has any that they like.

Lastly and outside a cut, if this is indeed true and about Heroes (and there is little doubt in my mind), whoever The Powers That Be are behind the scenes disgust me to end. D: I feel awful for the loyal cast and crew of classy professionals who have worked tirelessly to make this show the best possible experience. GQMFs, all of 'em. ;) Whatever happens at the end of this season, they have my eternal support and admiration. ♥ (Kring and accomplices gets my eternal rage.)
Ohlawd, it's Monday and I haven't written a word about any of my Thursday shows. I only just watched Fringe now though, and I like my tentative ~system~ of posting about Monday/Tuesday shows (Heroes excepted) in one go, and then about all the Thursday ones together as well. I just need to remember to update about other stuff once in a while, and be quicker with it. Good luck, self. LOL.

Anyway.

Right, that wraps up last week's episodes for me.

And now I shall indulge in some Heroes... waffling, heh.

No one's denying what we're witnessing now isn't the same show that premiered in 2006, and we all have an opinion on that. Me, I try to hold out some hope still that I can perhaps enjoy the show of 2009. I try. And I'm sad for the show and fandom I dove headfirst into, 3 years ago. There was a piece on [livejournal.com profile] fandomsecrets recently that more or less lamented the good old days of bustling fandom quality output and wank of the highest order. Not gonna lie, I miss it too! I most definitely understand the lapse, believe you me, but still. It was bizatchin' times! ;)

So today, I'd like to pimp out a couple of things that still manage to inspire infinite good will in me towards this Heroes - which is no small feat, lol.

• Cast picspams! There are many, but this one by [livejournal.com profile] lucky_star79 is my go-to place when I can't remember why falling for them was so damn easy. It's a shame many of those guys have been let go, but memories are forever and these are pretty sweet memories. ;)
This incredible fanvid featuring the whole cast by [livejournal.com profile] venus_6_ka. OH MY GODS SOMEBODY WAS ABLE TO MAKE SOME SENSE OF S3 AS A WHOLE. Color me massively impressed. I swear NBC only wishes they had talent like that in their promo dept.
• The LOLS. [livejournal.com profile] heroes_macros hasn't seen a lot of activity recently, but I remember lol'ing irl well into the night on more than one occasion in its heyday. We can has revival tiems plz? [livejournal.com profile] heroes_meta brings the snark every Monday in a compilation from fans' reviews on the previous episode. ~Decrypt the show? Do it in style.
• The pretty. It's telling, how important this has become, but what can I say? (It used to be the stories held my attention, fyi.) [livejournal.com profile] heroesaday posts one screen cap, inviting us to observe and reminisce the beauty in camera angles, blocking, facial expressions, small gestures, or just really how gorgeous the cast always was. (See also, "picspams".)
• Live commenting posts. [livejournal.com profile] heroes_tv has one every week, but I find them a bit tern and I much prefer those hosted by Kelly, where we squeal and/or bitch FIRST, and think LATER. Fun times guaranteed, whatever the intrinsic quality of any given episode! And the post header pics are just adorable, too. Watch:

So you see, there's still some goodness to go around. I might edit this list to add more stuff as it becomes apparent, but if you're only going to check out one thing, make that the fanvid. I don't know the vidder from Adam, but srsly you guise. You guise. Srsly. It might even get you pumped for tonight's episode, for reals. :O
At last(!), my thoughts on this past week's TV. XD

ME I'LL BE HERE FEELING SORRY FOR MYSELF AND WAITING FOR A DOWNLOAD, LMAO

ALSOOOOOOOOOO, DRINKING GAME RULES! VERY IMPORTANT!

ANYWAY! I PROMISED TV THOUGHTS (FOR LAST WEEK) YESTERDAY! I'LL KEEP THEM SUPER SHORT BECAUSE OF THE CAPSLOCK CHUNKINESS... OR SOMETHING.

So you know how I briefly mentioned my messed-up sleep cycle? It's ridiculously ridiculous at this point. As in, "going to sleep at 7am, getting up at 5pm" ridiculous. So I've decided to forgo sleep just long enough to drop down, dead to the world, at a more worldly hour tonight. It's about to be 9am, currently.

Hence, while I'm not sleeping, I'll be sharing... wait for it... TV THOUGHTS OMG (whodathunkit), rather than waiting until Sunday and have this massive tl;dr post.

First I should say I got my grubby little mitts on the Caprica pilot last night (uh, Sunday night - lolol this no-sleep thing is already screwing with my perception). I'll place copious amounts of spoiler space after my reactions so you don't have to see any of that inadvertantly.

Caprica )

Chuck )

House )

Heroes )
Aww! I had to answer today's Fannish Five: Name 5 characters you think really need a hug.

1. CHUCK BARTOWSKI! omg.
2. Leeeeeeeeeeeeeee Adamaaaaaaaaaaaa! <\3
3. Pam Beesly
4. Dr. Lance Sweets XD
5. Capt. David Shepherd
6. Nathan Petrelli (What? I think he does! Shut uuup. :P)

So, on the topic of TV, I miss BSG. Gods. I miss it. That I'm unable to go to the awesome Jules Verne Festival event in a couple weeks only breaks my heart even more. D:

My life, you guys. ;\

Anyway...

In other news, I'm meeting Jack Coleman tomorrow. What should I ask?
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 )

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

Chuck )

House )

Lost )

Bones )

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 )

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

The Office )
Why, yes, this is indeed another all-TV post. I might have more substantial news (or whatever) around the weekend. Maybe?

Anyway.

Polls to follow later tonight.

Two unrelated questions:
  1. Was there a new House episode? There was supposed to be, but I can't find it anywhere. Thanks, Tami! <3
  2. Do you watch Battlestar Galactica? If so, hop on over to [livejournal.com profile] hobbitofkobol's episodic poll for "Blood On The Scales" right now! :D
Right, so that took much longer than I'd anticipated. A couple things happened as I unzipped the file for my SPN episode:
  1. I realized I had yet to download and watch The Office, too.
  2. My computer started acting up and slowing down to a crawl. (It's like its innards fomented a mutiny against me!)
  3. As a result of #2, I got sucked into an impassioned game of Monopoly for an hour or so. On my iPod, don't go thinking I'm being all social all of a sudden.

After all which, I decided dinner sounded good, and also remembered that doing a load of laundry was becoming urgent. Lol, my life. Anyway. Now that all of that is out of the way, TV thoughts!

Battlestar Galactica )

I will- nay, I must end this post on a Dwight Schrute quote: «Do you watch Battlestar Galactica?3 No? Then you are an idiot.» (Truer words were never spoken.)



1: Not a word. (I checked.)
2: I always forget this airs on Mondays as well. Oh, Fox! You and your musical chairs programming.
3: Haha, I just asked this to Rainn Wilson via Twitter. (Shame. I don't have any.)
'kay, update is a long time coming, I have memes and stuffs to post, but the saddening amount of Bones love on the f-list has advanced my TV thoughts recap thing that I intended to post later with the rest. :p

House )

Fringe )

Bones )

Unrelatedly... SUPERNATURAL TONIGHT OMG! This is an awesome week for TV, clearly.

And also, I'm kind of going on awesome-overload with all the Heroes stuff that's been popping up. Those guys at NBC/Universal sure know how to work up the hype. LMAO @ the "Who Shot Nathan Petrelli?" promo they just released, that was fantastic lulz. XD ETCETERA. I won't have time to commentate it all. I just love everything ever about this show, pretty much. Yay!

I'll try and make a proper entry tonight. Maybe.
