I've never watched Startrek Enterprise before, but I realised the other day that at some point (likely several years ago) I bought the first 3 seasons on DVD. I started watching some today.

Does anyone else find it weird that Enterprise was part of an Earth collaboration, Starfleet, etc. And yet. the opening theme only shows American achievements in flight and space travel? Why not stick some Russian, Japanese, British etc. achievements in there? It's so very small-minded given what Startrek is all about. *sigh*

Anyhoo, the theme song is stupidly catchy. Might see if it's available to download on iTunes or something. I'm liking the slightly stuffy security guy and the medical officer. It's a nice cross of new and original startrek series so far, but I bet the die-hard fans struggled with it being a little inconsistent with original trek. Luckily I'm a fan, not a die-hard fan. Ha!

OMG! I miss Constantine so much.  They must bring him back again and again on Arrow! And they're getting the band back together.  All the people!  So excited!  Ahhhhh!

Loving it!

Yes, I am still alive. Been acting a higher position at work and busy generally and online stuff has fallen into the cracks again. Oy!

How are you all doing?

Another thing that has taken my spare time of late is Netflix and Presto, both of which I am getting free right now (ZOMG! for a few weeks more anyway). Ahhhhh! So much to watch! It's awesome!

Back in the day I was addicted to both The X Files (probably my first and most-loved TV show - I never missed an episode in all 10 seasons, I kid you not...) and Stargate SG1. Both of which I watched long before I knew what a "fandom" was. I watched them religiously. Just ask my mum, she had to tape them if I was out. LOL!

Sooo, I've been doing a bit of re-watching on Presto and Netflix and I suddenly thought... Fandom! Specifically X Files Fandom. Was there one? Is there good fan fiction out there? If anyone can point me to some good h/c for Mulder and Scully, I would seriously love you right now. I'm kinda excited by the concept and hoping there's all this awesomeness out there I've never thought to go look for. (Also in need of a good Mulder and Scully icon.)

Anyhoo. I need to catch up on all the current shows. But the rewatching caught me in a vortex of XFiles and Stargate love, so I haven't much fandomy to chat about. You still all rock!

OOh also saw the latest Avengers movie. How did you all feel about it? Especially the whole Hawkeye thing, which I found a little... weird (trying not to be spoilery here). Lemme know. I'm so very curious!

xxx Love you guys!
Hey guys, I'm trying to catch up on a few shows. Supernatural, Constantine, The Flash, Arrow, Marvel's Agent Carter and and Marvel's Agents of Shield. Sorry I haven't been online to chat.

*Please tell me Crowley's mother gets it eventually. I really can't stand her and not in a good (she's evil) way. She just irritates me and keep wanting to turn it off when their scenes are on...when I assume it's meant to be funny. I'd be watching so much faster without her, because it's fine otherwise. I will catch up guys. Sorry I'm so slow. I haven't been chatting or whatever because I'm so behind.

*Loving Constantine. I'm down to the last two episodes for the season. Please tell me there will be more. Love love love. Such a cheeky bugger!

*The Flash. Eeeee. I'm only 2 episodes behind now and I cannot believe it! Time travel madness to come I assume. Can't wait.

*Arrow is going down an interesting path too. I'm only one episode behind on it now (i.e. pretty up to date). Ooooh don't do it Ollie!

*I'm really behind on Agent Carter, but it's gorgeous. Are they continuing the series? I've heard things both ways.

*Up to date (or one ep behind?) on Agents of Shield. Can't wait to see where Skye's story arc is headed.

New Shows:
*I'm also quite liking iZombie. Watched the first 2 episodes and it seems pretty fun. I love the idea of a reluctant zombie using her brain-eating psychic abilities to fight crime. Must have been really fun graphic novels.

*Loving 12 monkeys! Is anyone else watching this show?

I just watched Deliver us from Evil. It was a reasonable supernatural horror thriller. No plot twists really, just an account of something that happened to a dude with some reasonably creepy shit going down. But it was well done.

The leads (Eric Bana, Édgar Ramírez) are both so very smoking hot in this... I don't have slash goggles at all, but those two can be in any movie together they like and I'll watch it. Mmmm. (I would also totally read any fan fiction - slash or gen - carrying on from where the film left off. Recs welcome.) In conclusion, I liked it. Will likely buy the DVD for future ogling (Why yes I am shallow.), or for when I'm in the mood for a supernatural thriller.

The SPN rewatch continues - S5

How did I forget about Changing Channels? The ball-crunching Japanese show, the sun glasses at night, Dr Sexy, the Sam!pala! LOL! Love it!

I watched The Real Ghostbusters tonight. I was hoping my reaction would be less squicky this time, but I still had to fast forward a little of it or hide behind the couch. Once the real ghosts appeared I was okay though. Just, I can't stand Becky and them the facts, people! Whereas the earlier fan, with the tattoo on her bottom. She was more fun, less squick.

And next up, I know is Abandon All Hope and I'm going to put that off for a little while, because I can't go to bed on that much angst. *lip wibble* Next time.

Teen Wolf - S4
Psst. I have a secret. I actually don't mind Malia. *hears the sound of people de-friending*
I know why you all hate her and it makes sense and I understand. However, I feel like they are trying to make her like a coyote with a survival-of-the-fittest mentality and maybe it isn't working perfectly, but I think she'll get there as a character. I have always respected that Teen Wolf has such fabulously strong/independent female lead characters and I'm more than willing to give Malia the benefit of the doubt. There, I've said it.

Did anyone watch the first episode? What'd you all think? I loved the movie and this looks like another interesting take on the graphic novels. More British. And I must say, there appears to be a lot of crossover potential here. A lot!

I've watched a few other things lately, but nothing that's really caught my fancy. Have you guys discovered any new shows that must be watched? Lemme know, please. ;)

I'm really enjoying Intelligence.

And not because the lead male is awesome, though I am enjoying his droll humour a lot, but mainly because here is a show that doesn't shy away from tough female characters with heart. Both Lillian and Riley are complete characters. Yes they can shoot or act tough, but that doesn't mean they aren't in touch with their emotions or that they can't have a sense of humour. I love that Riley looks up to Lillian as a role model in a world where she probably has few female role models. I love the interplay between Lillian and Riley full stop. I also love that the fact that these women do what they do and do it well, doesn't mean they are completely accepted in this man's world. There are numerous references, especially in the first episodes, to men (particularly Gabriel) feeling emasculated in the face of these women. And these women telling them to suck it up.

I pretty much love all the main characters they've set up, male and female. Don't get me wrong. I'm just particularly loving that I love these two wonderful strong female characters. It's rare and brilliant and I hope to hell the show isn't axed any time soon.

I'm also loving the snappy interplay between Gabriel and Riley. That they can be emotionally supportive of each other and that they can be so close, but always professional. Loving the interplay between Gabriel and the science geeks in charge of his health and well-being. Science geeks who are such caring creatures might I add - loving that too. They aren't cold and heartless or unemotional as so many scientists are portrayed. And they're perfectly capable of being brave-hearted. Their mother-henning and care of Gabriel is adorable. And Gabe's reactions are too! You can tell he quite likes it and is amused, all the while protesting that he's fine and would they stop now.

Ah, in short I have fallen in love with this show. A show I thought would just be a serious version of Chuck... which it sort of is, but it WORKS! It works so well! If you've given up on it, please watch beyond the first few episodes. It's worth it.

Anyone else watching? Got any recs for fic or where to find good stuff?
I'm hooked. :)

(Oh I need icons too!)
Man I enjoyed that movie. I was expecting mindless action, but it was rather quirky and fun and the action was non-stop and completely unrealistic in a really silly way. I cracked it when the limo was circling with the news coverage [shhh spoilers, you'll see]... It reminded me of the first time I saw Die Hard, actually. It works in a similar way. Channing's white shirt even got progressively dirty as it went along! Wheeee! Just what I needed for my Friday night to cheer me right up.

If you like an action movie that doesn't take itself too seriously, try White House Down. It really made me grin!

Yay! I really enjoyed that.

spoilers )

Thanks show! :D

I still want to write something that has Toby still searching for his family. I had a plot outline, but I need to change it a bit now that they've explained why Thea is different. And I need to actually write. I can't believe how long it is since I've written something. I am finding it hard to know where to start.

Oh and fact check: Sandy still doesn't know about Toby's gift. Right?
The whole AU thing, just wow! I wasn't spoiled at all and it was all such a surprise. Now I must go and watch possible spoiler for AU stuff ) because I haven't seen it in forever!

...and I'm actually quite enjoying it. :)
Just shows that I watch for different aspects of the show than some other people, I suppose.


Right now it's 2am and I'm hanging about and posting because I can't sleep. Surprisingly not at all to do with SPN. My brain is fixed on work issues. Weird. Off to try the whole sleep thing again...
Is there to be a Season 5? They've sure set one up.

So that was a little strange. I enjoyed it, but I was also continually thrown by spoiler ) It was doing my head in!

I can see the fun in it and it's very clever in that it allowed the writers to spoiler )

I do wish that spoiler )

Anyway, ended up enjoying S4 despite my whining. :P

Just watched Supernatural 7x22, but the thing that strikes me as amusing is that I am totally watching this for the bad guys these days.

The guy that plays Dick Roman is stellar. OMG best bad guy. That smile! Ha!
Then Crowley of course. He's number one best ever bad guy!
And even some of the recurring Leviathans... just great acting. I totally buy their evil plans!

And I love that spoiler ) It's just so super evil mad nemesis genius planning, ya know? Love it!

I almost want to vid SPN again, but I don't have unmarked clips or anything, so it'd be a bit messy! Anyone got a good song, something super silly and evil, I could use for a Dick vid? I'll take suggestions and think about it. Not that I haven't got enough vid ideas and promises already going on, but...

Edit: I think I just found a song I have to vid! Bwahahahahahaha! Oh god, emailing this to you [livejournal.com profile] ash48!!
