My television addiction. Brought to you today by the letters BBC, CW, and FOX  
I need to talk about some shows.

GLEE


Oh, gosh. Becky was holding a water bucket at the opining Cheerios fire extravaganza! WHY DIDN'T SHE THROW WATER ON SOMEONE?! Oh, because it was a bucket of false breasts. Of course Sue wouldn't have her sidekick standing by with life-saving water. Boobs. That's what she had. Figures.

Is it wrong that I really sort of like Karofsky? DAVID, even? His name is DAVID? That makes him more approachable, somehow. Less of an in-the-closet-homophobic bastard. And when he smiles, he's totally cute. If I were the type to write fan fiction, I'd totally write something sappy about him because of all his cuteness in this ep.

How Jane Lynch makes a line about raccoon hormones work for her interpretation while writing in her journal is nothing short of artistic. Way to commit, Jane Lynch. WAY TO COMMIT.

Coach Bieste ate a whole roasted chicken and a carton of OJ for lunch. Funny AND gross.

Showtunes are the music of the black kid's oppressors. *snort* Thank you writers. Sometime I feel like you're writing just for me.

Sue's temper tantrum? Gold. Not being able to throw the medicine ball? Priceless. The Suepocalypse? Yes, please.

I want a zombie double rainbow. Brittney. Oh, Brittney.

Okay. Fast forward to the football player Zombies/Santana (the band not the character)/She's Not There Zombie number. No one is more of a fan of Cory Monteith than me. Seriously. He's adorable. But his dancing even sucks AS A ZOMBIE, the poor baby. The verisimilitude, however, is comforting. Having personally tried to get high school football players to look like they aren't having an epileptic seizure while dancing is tough. So I respect it. That and he's so stinking cute, even if he IS uncoordinated. *Finn Love*

The hockey team had mullets. *Dies laughing*

The Warblers. Erm. That was uncomfortable. I hate those jackets. And they're misusing the talents of Kurt. I'm ready for that storyline to die, even if the head warbler is Harry Potter.

The Thriller number? The costumes? The Yeah Yeah Yeahs? The dancing (minus sweet Cory?) Karofsky DAVID not being an asshole for two seconds? PERFECT. Heather Morris is a star. They cannot make her look chorus even with film edits. She's that good.

Katie Couric. No. Just NO. Sue calling her Diane Sawyer? Yes.

The only thing I'm more vehement about saying NO to is the Finn/Quinn kiss. NO FREAKING WAY. It made me growly. And what about her big-lipped boyfriend? What about HIM? Don't be a whore, Quinn. That was so last season. That said, Diana Agron is so pretty and has a lovely voice, even if she does sound like she has a head cold all the time.

The Glee love is intact. Carry on.

BONES
Every episode without Hannah in it is a good one for me. And Bones and Booth in the car? Giggling? They had to have thrown that in for all the disappointed fans this season. And it was totally worth it. The communal giggling. I don't care if it was OOC or not, it made me smile.

Even if it was right after the actor-delivered Toyota commercial that is in the middle of EVERY SINGLE EPISODE. I have a Sequoia, and I'm always waiting to see what it can do. Maybe Booth will teach me how to set the radio stations one day. I've had the thing since 2007 and I've thus far been unable. Lots of Pruis love, but nothing for the Sequoia.

Anyway, back to Hannah. I get it, from a character development POV. But I'm officially tired of it. I love this show. I want my old UST and a progression of THAT storyline.

And Hannah's hair is too perfect. I don't like people whose hair is better than mine. ;)

And I get that's what they're trying to do. But UGH.

The other storylines are nice. I like Cam's doctor, and I dig the Hodgela baby stuff. I love Wendell. What they've done to Clark is weird, though. Does anyone agree? Nolan and I just looked at each other like WTH? Who body-snatched Clark?

Bones love is intact. Carry on.

THE VAMPIRE DIARIES


First of all, I love Caroline. And the fact that they tortured her in this ep was heartbreaking - the physical torture AND the impending psychological torture. Oh, MATT! He needs to know everything. Matt's cool. He could take it. Maybe. Hopefully. Now that I think about it, probably not. Er.

I keep running across Tyler/Caroline Fan fic. *curls lip* I'm a Matt/Caroline girl. There's NONE of that. If you know of some, hook me up!

Stefan continues to be milquetoast. I hate him less than I did at the end of last season, if only because he's nice to Caroline.

But DAMON. Damondamondamon... I bet I say, "Oh, Damon," at least twelve times an episode. At then end, before the bubble bath reporter girl (who was the equivalent of the red-shirted ensign at the beginning of a Star Trek Episode) bit it, (or got bit, har dee har har) her line about love changing us into the people that we are was hopeful for poor Damon. For about two seconds, until he ate her.

Vampire Diaries Love intact.

SUPERNATURAL

*Frowns at this season*

Castiel is little mister bringdown, isn't he?

The dialogue writers still do a great job for these characters. Dean especially. The overarching plot is bizarre, and I guess that really - where do they have to go from where they've been? But the dialogue is great.

I'm glad Sammy is back in all his emo glory. Having him be a t-1000 was not right, though Jared Padelecki did a great job acting it. And is it possible for that kid's shoulders to get any broader? Oh, my WORD. They're going to have trouble finding him shirts if he keeps getting bigger. Not that I'm complaining.

Love it when Dean read from the girl's diary. Sam's reaction and, "I think I delivered it," was priceless.

"Being easy's pretty much all upside." Man, I love Dean. And the bit with the sword in the stone was pretty awesome, too.

The plot, though, she leaves me cold.

BEING HUMAN/BECOMING HUMAN


So I watched the whole of BH in a week, right before series three premiered, and I'm really loving it. I feel a little guilty not having paid my dues with the rest of the fangirls, time wise, for the BIG RELATIONAL PLOT POINT (read: Mitchell/Annie kissing stuff) that happened this past week, but I like it. George is a DOLL. A DOLL, I tell you. I just want to squeeze him and hug him and love him. And furry babies! Eeee!

And Becoming Human is cute. Adam is really great. British humor slays me. NOTHING is out of bounds. It's fantastic. I think they should make it into an actual series, though. They're shortchanging the actors with only the webisodes.

I think that's all the news that's fit to type. Anything I missed?

Welcome to the Being Human craze. I was hook, line and sinker from the first moment. Thank goodness for Jessi. *squeezes her*

Carrie Leigh: Bones kisscarrie_leigh on February 8th, 2011 04:12 pm (UTC)
What's not to love, right? A vampire, a ghost and a werewolf?

Except I was having poached eggs while watching this week's ep, and it kind of put me off my meal. It was GROSS.

Carmen: being human ~ ot4 good timeshumbuggirl on February 8th, 2011 04:20 pm (UTC)
Being Human = ♥

I would like a Mitchell, please.

I love Becoming Human as well. Adam and Christa are great. I was a bit irritated that after the 15 minute opening ep they only did a 5 minute one though.
Carrie Leigh: Glee Finn and Rachelcarrie_leigh on February 8th, 2011 04:23 pm (UTC)
No kidding! I watched this morning and said, "THAT'S IT?!" out loud.

Mitchell IS adorable, for sure. :D
Laura: SNE love triangledream_mancer on February 8th, 2011 04:59 pm (UTC)
Glee: Brittany and Santana are amazing. I love them. I've never really liked Quinn, mostly because I think I have her figured out one minute and the next she's doing something COMPLETELY different, and while I love character twists as much as the next person, on her it just pisses me off.

Also, I don't like Katie Couric, so having Sue call her Dianne Sawyer was awesome.

Bones: That part in the car was hilarious. Booth saying ass hat was my favorite part. Thanks to some digging, I found out that some of those lines were improv, and most of the giggling was actually real. I would be laughing too.

I almost like Hannah, but she's too perfect. She's friends with Brennan, she's friends with Parker, she's has no flaws, almost. She has no issue with the fact that Brennan loves her boyfriend? And anyone can see he still cares for her? NO WOMAN COULD BE LIKE THAT.

Vampire Diaries: Damon. *le sigh* I did a happy dance because I got him in a shower AND bubble bath this week. Double love. Also, the fanged smirk right before he bit the woman at the end. I watched that probably six times.

Supernatural: I am not a fan of season six at all. I haven't watched the last four episodes, and even though they're saved on my DVR, I just don't really care to. *sigh* If I hear good things about it, then maybe. MAYBE.

Being Human: I saw a few episodes. It was cute. I'll probably wait for the DVD to come out before I watch anymore.
Carrie Leigh: Dolphins are gay sharkscarrie_leigh on February 8th, 2011 07:55 pm (UTC)
I LOVE that that was improv. That makes it even better. :D

I almost like Hannah, too. Almost. So close.

I'm gonna go back and watch the fangy smirk.

Season six = :(

I dld'ed them all. It was very entertaining.

I stopped watching Glee after the Cheesus episode, but caught the new one on Sunday night... They may have won me back as a viewer. Now I have to catch up (also, yes, Quinn needs to stop with the floozy thing. So last season)

LOVE Caroline too. Stefan being nice to her made him more palatable to me too. DAMON. He's beautiful to watch, both for the aesthetics and just him as a character. He's so compelling in all his brokeness. It's what makes him human. (Also, I don't think Andy Starr died. He's going to use her as a regular snack/cover-up)

I hear so many good things about Being Human. I need to watch someday. (after I finish watching Merlin, Castle, Veronica Mars and Sons of Anarchy >.>)
Carrie Leigh: Arthur smilescarrie_leigh on February 8th, 2011 07:56 pm (UTC)
Snack. LOL.

I can vouch for Merlin, Castle and Veronica Mars. SO worth it.
Elle Blessingway: TVD: Damon Hotelle_blessing on February 9th, 2011 12:37 am (UTC)
Well, it's Damon >.>

Yeah! I've loved what I've seen so far. I just don't have time to watch everything. LE SIGH.

Jandy the Gnome Whisperer: Becoming Humanjandjsalmon on February 8th, 2011 06:47 pm (UTC)
I couldn't agree with you more about Glee. Seriously - EVERYTHING you said is exactly what I'm thinking. I DNW Finn/Quinn. Serioulsy dude! She lied to you for almost a whole pregnancy! It would be like Will taking back Terri - and I would DIE!

And SPN... I am glad Sammy's back to normal and you are SO right about his shoulders. HOLY HANNAH Jared - have a bonbon or something. Sit down and stop working out so much! You know - I liked Meg!possessed Sammy - when he taunted Jo about his daddy killing her daddy... but I was SO ready for heartless!Sammy to go. I wanted my sweet woobie back and it's been SEVERAL seasons since we had a proper brotherly love thing going on.

AND BH. I don't know about Mitchell/Annie - since I was never really sucked into that shippyness even the first time I watched it. Now I've watched the two seasons again with Jay (he gets his feet rubbed - I get to watch what I like) and he even can't see the loveyness. *shrugs* I'm all about the pretty that is Mitchell and the awesome that is Annie... I just don't know how I feel about them together. But YAY for baby!wolf pups though. I love George (his penchant for crying in every episode aside) and even though I want to strangle Nina half the time - I love her the rest of the time and what's more important is that George loves her - so they make me all squishy and stuff.

And clearly - this mega-long comment is brought to you by a DEAD day at work that is slowly sucking my will to live. *g*
Carrie Leigh: Bones - Wendellcarrie_leigh on February 8th, 2011 08:00 pm (UTC)
I admit, I never thought of M/A together, really. But now that they've kissed, I like it.
Jessica K Malfoy: s&d: impallajessicakmalfoy on February 10th, 2011 02:23 am (UTC)
i love me some glee too. quinn is one of my favorites (ok they all kind of are in some way) and so when she kissed finn i was all YAY! and then...well did you see last night's episode? i am so torn. i don't love the warblers either. i think blaine tells kirk "it's about us not just you" because HE wants to keep hogging the star spotlight. boo.

the only other show i watch on here is supernatural and i gave up about 4 episodes in. i hated season 5 but i stuck it out. i just cannot do season 6. and now there's talk of season 7? really? come on!
Carrie Leigh: Dean handcarrie_leigh on February 10th, 2011 02:37 pm (UTC)
I don't like F/Q (which looks tacky when you type it that way!) I think she's jerking Finn around. Everyone needs to quit jerking Finn around! Don't pick on him cos he can't dance!

Blaine is the biggest star spotlight hogger in the world.

SPN. Gah. How the mighty have fallen. I only watch for the pretty. And for the car. ;)
