I mean, I'm all caught up with B99 and no, it's not a real game and I WILL NEVER PLAY CANDY CRUSH OKAY?

I would also like a Terry Bear of my own. That is all.

brief... spoilers? if you care? this is b99 )

I was two weeks behind on TGW and catching up was sheer joy. I have missed everyone! I don't have much to say about them except Zach grew up really pretty (I will not perv), Diane is still the best and I'm disappointed about the lack of Kalinda. It should not be this hard for a show of this calibre to come up with a decent plotline for the only character of colour in their main cast (remember the Emmy, guys?) in their stellar fifth season - a plotline that DOESN'T make her an accessory in everyone else's story. Kalinda's not an extra and I would appreciate if they stopped treating her as one.

I realise this is not Twitter but all I can say about the last couple of episodes of The Good Wife is: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH

Game over

TGW season-opener was great. As expected, spoilers )

HOWEVER. I ASSUME ALL OF YOU HAVE ALREADY SEEN THIS, BUT IT IS NEW TO ME: FOX ACQUIRES 'GOTHAM':

It explores the origin stories of Commissioner James Gordon and the villains who made Gotham City famous. In Gotham, Gordon is still a detective with the Gotham City Police Department and has yet to meet Batman, who will not be part of the series.


I EXPECT IT TO GO FULL ON GOTHAM CENTRAL AFTER SOME TIME (BECAUSE SURELY THERE WILL BE MANY SEASONS AND I SHOULD STOP BEING SO EXCITED, AAAH).

DISCUSS.

Watson for Batman!

Because Sherlock would play an excellent twitchy little Tim Drake and Gregson IS Gordon.

Have I mentioned how much I'm enjoying Elementary? (Shh, you may not discuss episodes beyond 1.14 with me.) I may also have developed a slight Gregson problem, in that [personal profile] tanndell and I have taken to squeeing in an unseemly fashion whenever he is on screen and shipping him shamelessly with Watson, because unf.

I still have to watch the new Warehouse 13and the OUAT finale (although, going by Tumblr gifs alone: show, your gay is showing). What is my life. :/

I had many thoughts about the last few episodes of TGW, but then I forgot to talk about it and right now it all boils down to spoilers )

I love The Good Wife's unshaking commitment to making the audience flinch spoilers for 4.13 )

The Good Wife has now had TWO fun episodes in a row, which can only mean that something DREADFUL is going to happen shortly. Je Ne Sais What? )

Once Upon a Time meanwhile was The Outsider )

The last OUAT episode was pretty much straight out of Swan Queen fanfic: spoilers for 2.10 )

TGW is always good, and this episode was no exception spoilers for 2.11 )

The first week of being back at work after a break is strange - I fell asleep early a lot (no matter what [personal profile] zorana says, I did not read fic till two - on most days), got handed a lot of new responsibilities (which are not bad, in fact), and generally have no idea where this week went.
swatkat: Batgirl! (dcu: smiley batgirl babs)
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, spoilers for the latest episode )

I'm also sort of making my way through Once Upon A Time S1, and while I'm enjoying it, spoilers for the Hansel and Gretel episode )

I am also still watching HIMYM, and spoiler for the latest episode )

I'm not entirely sure what's going on with Jones' backstory in the most recent Gunnerkrigg Court story, but I do love all the pretty art.

+ My week of doing nothing at home is nearly over, alas. I'm trying not to think about it, though - or the sheer amount of work I have to do once I get back.

The last time I was at home, my sister had taken to obsessively watching The Big Bang Theory, which I didn't mind because it is funny a lot of times (and rather offensive on other occasions). This time she has taken to watching Grey's Anatomy (season three), and so far I have learned that Christina Yang is awesome, Patrick Dempsey is annoying but oh-so-prettily-rumpled, Bailey is awesome, and I really do not like George. Also Addison, I like her too. I don't actually intend to watch the show beyond the glimpses I catch from my sister's viewings, but I'm gleaning a lot of amusement from it at the moment.

+ This is a very interesting analysis of the Kalinda scenes in the TGW season opener by [personal profile] sophia_gratia. Fempop has a similar, very interesting analysis here, and I agree on both accounts. I couldn't quite put my finger to why certain elements in the storyline were making me so uncomfortable, but these posts illustrate the point very eloquently.

+ Tumblr has been shamelessly bombarding me with hot images of the Merlin cast. In this one they look like they've walked out of 'Drastically Redefining Protocol'. I can't even!

+ Speaking of Tumblr, I do love Tumblr, but I hate what it has done to fannish conversations now. Sigh.

+ I'm full of a lot of HG Wells feelings, and in the absence of A LOT OF FANFIC WRITTEN TO CATER TO MEEEEE I have been rewatching bits of S2, which has been the cause of even more feelings. I also really want a Warehouse 13/Avengers crossover now, mostly because I want HG to ~bond with Steve, and also because I want to witness Mrs F take on Nick Fury (she wins).

I am home for a week, and as a result have been forced to watch The Big Bang Theory with my sister, who watches it incessantly. It is quite funny, but what I enjoyed most so far was Christine Baranski as Leonard's mother, because she is fabulous and because it is fun to imagine her as Diane's twin sister. She would, no doubt, ask Diane if she has consummated her relationship with her much-younger male colleague/partner every time they met and pester her to get a brain scan, because it's crucial for her understanding of her own brain.

This isn't a deep thoughts post, although at some point I would like to talk about the question of 'goodness' with respect to Alicia, her self-image and how others see her (I have a half-written post on my desktop) - this is a squeaky penguin noises and flappy haaaaands post. First, a long overdue response to the previous episode:

TGW 3.15 )

TGW 3.16 )

WHY IS THE NEXT EPISODE AFTER TWO WEEKS? I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NEXT.

I am utterly charmed by this silly highschool AU [personal profile] monanotlisa and I were talking about last night, based on an observation of hers that "TGW would rock so many AUs...if not the high-school one; it relies so much on the characters being complex yet at all times mature adults..."

ETA: [personal profile] deepad writes a hilarious write-up on Comic Con, the Delhi edition. I solemnly swear that I did not poke Captain America's manboobs.

Why is it that both shows of my heart (Fringe*and The Good Wife) have so little in the name of discussion on the internets, flist? My soul craves meta—aches for it, and all I get is Tumblr picspams. In my desperation I have taken to reading the TGW TWOP forums, which are surprisingly fun and full of interesting discussion. The Alienation of Affection thread is here, and the Bitcoin for Dummies thread is here—if you're looking for some insightful discussion and speculation (especially on the Wendy Scott Carr plot, which, frankly, is beyond me, I'm happy to watch it as it comes), you should definitely read these.

*I am yet to watch the last two episodes of Fringe, shh don't tell me what happened.


spoilers up to 3.13 )
