swatkat: Batgirl! (dcu: smiley batgirl babs)
[personal profile] swatkat
So I watched the first episode of Arrow with a friend - and this might have something to do with the fact that we were both tired and somewhat under the influence - and found it a rather charming take on Green Arrow. Now, to be honest, I was naturally predisposed to find it charming, in the sense that there is no possible version of Oliver Queen who is not more charming to me than DCU's Oliver Queen, but! He is sad! He is pretty! He was shipwrecked! On an island! He has ~changed! He's on a mission for revenge! Because his daddy told him to before dying, and also because he wants to clean up his city! He's practically Hamlet (we said yesterday, while being mesmerised by Stephen Amell's physique)! And then of course there's Dinah - I'm not sure I'm going to be able to call her 'Laurel' right now - and you know my feelings about Black Canary, right? ♥

So I'm going to watch more of that.

The Good Wife never disappoints, and god, am I glad the Kalinda's Husband storyline is OVER. I loved the moment when Alicia stood up to him, being her wonderful understated self and Kalinda's White Knight. But then Kalinda stepped in herself, and that was wonderful too. Because only an idiot would threaten Kalinda with Alicia's safety.

Will being on the receiving end of some dressing down from a female judge/opponent seems to be something of a theme this season, and I'm not complaining, although I still don't know what to think of the impending (seeming!) hook up with Laura Hellinger.

I'm also sort of making my way through Once Upon A Time S1, and while I'm enjoying it, the emphasis on blood and 'real' families really annoyed me. Regina quite broke my heart when she wondered why the kids didn't want her, while simultaneously being a horrible person.

I am also still watching HIMYM, and while I am very invested in Barney/Robin (this is an understatement), can they just get on with it already? I mean, seriously. Also someone please marry Ted Mosby and put him out of his misery.

I also love that Lily's not-so-secret desire to make out with Robin is pretty much canon now.
