cordelianne: (S/X Met Spike on LJ)
It’s icy and snowy outside (thankfully not the loss of power and crazy ice storm conditions other people have been experiencing – although it has been freezing rain today), so I’ve been enjoying my day off by snuggling under a blanket and catching up on my TV watching.

It feels like ages since I did a TV post, so I’m excited to share some brief thoughts on some of the TV I’ve been watching. So guess which show is making me very happy right now?!! If you guessed Ugly Betty you’re right!

Ugly Betty – First Five episodes )

Grey’s Anatomy – ‘Six Days Part One’ (3:11) )

24 – Day 6: 6am-7am & 7am-8am )

The Office – ‘Back from Vacation’ and ‘Traveling Salesmen’ (3:12 & 3:13) )

30 Rock – Random season 1 thoughts )

SPN – ‘Hunted’ (2:10) )


Oh! And if you’re interested, I did a post at [livejournal.com profile] buffyversetop5 of my choices for the Top 5 Spike/Xander fics of 2006. There’s so many other fabulous rec posts there, I definitely recommend spending some time browsing around there.

I love this new icon I'm using by [livejournal.com profile] apreludetoanend (it's her most recent post) - how awesome is it?!!!
cordelianne: (Heroes SuperHiro!)
It’s been a rough last few days for me, so I figured what better distraction than to talk about TV?! I haven’t really had the energy to do thoughtful critiques or even simple reactions like “I loved it” or “blah”, so I thought I’d give you a run down of what I’ve been enjoying, what I haven’t and what I haven’t even watched yet. There’s very minimal spoilers in my comments.

Shows I’ve Been Loving )

Shows I’m Enjoying )

Shows That I’m Not All About )

Shows on my PVR that I Haven’t Seen Yet (or have only seen 1 episode of) )

I must say that overall I’m underwhelmed by a lot of the TV shows this season. (This could be more a reflection of how I'm feeling.) There better be some exciting things in November! I’m most excited about Heroes right now. *hearts* Hiro.
cordelianne: (AtS Not Fade Away)
Today is the last day that the WB will exist. Tomorrow it and UPN merge to form the CW. I'm mostly excited about this (despite being sad about Everwood and Reba being casualties of the merger), however I am sad about the WB ending. And, I wanted to remind you all that:

As a good-bye, the WB is airing the pilots of its significant shows today.

5pm - Felicity
6pm - Angel
7pm - Buffy the Vampire Slayer
9pm - Dawson's Creek


**check your local listings**

I will totally be watching! I missed out on seeing Felicity when it first aired so I'm excited to check it out. Even though I think it's weird that they're playing Angel before Buffy I'm excited to watch them one last time on the network that (mostly) nurtured these two brilliant shows (I'm trying not to focus on the too soon cancelling of Angel). And it'll be fun to end with the post-modern teen angsting of Dawson's Creek!

I thought it would be fun, as a good-bye, if I listed my favourite memorable moments from the shows I watched on the WB. Good Times on the WB )
cordelianne: (VM Mars' Hmm)
So it’s been a crazy week in which I worked too much (because of all the slacking I’d done previously), and didn’t get enough sleep because I still tried to do everything I normally do after work.

Now I’m looking at the “notes” I made while watching various tv shows and shaking my head at how unhelpful they are. For example, here’s something I wrote about this about this week’s Gilmore Girls episode: “Come what may. (Moulin Rouge)” Um, what? I think someone may have said that line and I was noting that it’s the title of that song in Moulin Rouge, but I can’t recall the context.

Anyway, here are my thoughts about my tv shows:

Gilmore Girls ‘Driving Miss Gilmore’ 6:21 )

Veronica Mars ‘Happy Go Lucky’ 2:21 )

Scrubs ‘My Fallen Idol’ 5:21 )

The Amazing Race ‘Man, They Should Have Used Their Fake Names’ )

Smallville ‘Oracle’ 5:21 )

Supernatural ‘Devil’s Trap’ 1:22 )


I did see Mission: Impossible III with a couple of friends and it was a fun time. Not really spoilers but there’s a bit of rambling about MI-III and about book references. )


Before I finish this rambly post, I wanted to give people a heads up that I’m planning another music post for this weekend. They’ll be more Arcade Fire and another band/musician (*is mysterious*). I thought I’d see if anyone had any other requests. I love sharing things that make me happy so if there’s something you want to hear more of, let me know!! *g*
cordelianne: (Xander/Xander OTP)
Last night was a co-worker’s going away party, which I’d organized, and I had a hard time having fun because I kept stressing over the details. Fortunately 2 green apple coolers later (like the favourite drink of Scrubs’s JD, the Appletini), I was all tipsy and happy. At the party my good friend/co-worker E tried to convince everyone that I could be bitchier than her, and NO ONE BELIEVED HER!! Haha, victory is mine! She was griping about it on the way home so I told her it’s like that argument between Buffy, Willow and Xander: You two are the two who are the two. This made sense to me at the time, but I’m not sure if it actually does now. For some reason it still entertains me though!!

Um, anyway … To make up for my (almost) tv-less weekend I’ve been watching lots and lots of television.

Supernatural ‘Something Wicked’ (1:18), Could I love the brothers more? )

A couple of How I Met Your Mother episodes including the one with Alexis Denisof )

Caution: Big time spoilers for Veronica Mars ‘I am God’ (2:18) and Citizen Kane )

Not really spoilers for House, just a quote )

Gilmore Girls ‘The Real Paul Anka’ 2:18, More whacked out dreams )


It’s Nicholas Brendon and, of course, his twin brother Kelly Donovan’s birthday. Happy birthday Nick and Kelly!!!

I just saw this on Citytv's CablePulse news: A man was killed in an explosion in a Toronto Tim Hortons. It happened around 1pm at the Tim Hortons on Yonge Street just north of Bloor. For those who don't know, Tim Hortons is THE Canadian coffee shop. Most coffee drinkers love Tim Hortons more than Starbucks or any other brand. I was just in one yesterday with my aunt who was getting some coffee beans to bring to my cousin who's living in India (yes, he asked her to bring him some "Timmies" even though there's lots of coffee in India). ETA: Another Tim Hortons was evacuated because of a suspicious package! The Tim Hortons that was evacuated is right near my house!!!! I actually walked by the emergency task force unit which was speeding up to the Tim Hortons, which I'd JUST passed 10 minutes earlier. Ahh! Seriously though, I suspect the second incident happened because of fears from the first incident. It's just so weird, who would want to bomb a Tim Hortons? I thought everyone loves Tim Hortons?!


Moving on to happier news, I attended my friend's professional singing debut last night. She was marvelous! It was a production of the St. Matthew Passion by J.S. Bach, and she was the soprano soloist. She looked gorgeous in a total diva dress, and sang beautifully. When she finished her first aria I realized that I was completely tense because I was so nervous for her. By her second aria I was much more relaxed because she was performing perfectly. I'm so very proud of her!!

It was a Cellar Singers production in Orilla (an hour north of Toronto), and I was able to attend because of my aunt. By total chance my aunt and I made the connection that the choir her best friend performs in, is the same one that my best friend has also performed in over the years and would be making her professional debut with. My aunt bought me the ticket for a Christmas gift and she drove us up. It was nice to see my aunt again (who I don't see that often). We did have a funny moment when she was telling me about some wallpaper she'd had in her house and she described it as "flocked". Immediately my brain thought "Her wallpaper was friend locked? Wait, that doesn't make sense!" It turns out "flocked" can also mean textured wallpaper. hee! I didn't tell her about my initial confusion.

We had some nice reminiscence about my grandma (my aunt is technically my grandma's daughter-in-law but they were very close). My aunt was observing how upset my grandma would be by Stephen Harper, particularly because of his anti-gay marriage stance. It was neat to discover that my aunt is also supportive of same-sex marriage and dislikes Stephen Harper (for many reasons). Her perspective is that all Canadians should be equal which means that everyone should be able to marry. Yay for my aunt! She was also reminding me of how she, my grandma and I marched together in the Metro Days of Action against the many troubling right wing policies of Mike Harris' Conservative government.

Besides my adventures north of the city, I've also been playing some television catch-up, so here's some brief thoughts on some shows:

Smallville 'Hypnotic' 5:16, aka Lots & lots of James Marsters! )

Supernatural 'Hell House' 1:17 or What would Buffy do? )

Conviction: Why it's failing as a show. I also reference Numb3rs but there's no real spoilers for either. )

I hope everyone is having an excellent Sunday, and that the loss of an hour wasn't too disruptive.

We actually celebrated International Women's Day at my work today (usually it's just another day). All the women were given cards with pears on them (I guess that pears symbolize womanhood?). We got to leave work for an hour, have warm beverages and PIE (I totally thought of [livejournal.com profile] entrenous88 when I had the pecan pie).

The first part was all very proper as we sipped our hot chocolate, ate pie and chatted - I noted that we were having the kind of celebration that L.M. Montgomery (aka author of Anne of Green Gables) would have participated in. Sadly, that comment only entertained me. However it did spark life into the group and we talked about everything from our breasts, online dating, the anti-abortion law in South Dakota, the age of consent laws in Canada, our first experiences in feminist groups and horrible IDW dances we've attended. It was actually a very fun time, and it felt like an appropriate way to mark IWD.


I haven't seen any of my tv shows since Monday because all I've been doing is working (stressful) and sleeping (because I'm still feeling ucky). But I do have tv news!

1. Season 3 of BSG won't air until October 2006. WHAT?! We'll have to wait ...*counts*...SEVEN months for the new season. Seven?! Seven months?!! Recounts. Damn, it's still seven months. You just know there's going to be a BIG cliffhanger and then the wait will be excruciating. Also, this doesn't seem like an effective way to retain viewers; peeople don't like to wait.

2. This is the last season of Charmed. I feel weirdly sad about the show ending, despite being amazed that such a crappy show has been on the air so long. Of course I'll inexplicably continue to watch it to the very end.

3. The Amazing Race and How I Met Your Mother both renewed for next season. Here's hoping that next year's The Amazing Race will NOT be the Family Edition. I adore How I Met Your Mother so I'm very happy about this. Also, yay for more Alyson Hannigan on tv!!

4. Speaking of How I Met Your Mother Amy Acker and Alexis Denisof will BOTH guest star on the season finale of the show. Alyson Hannigan, Amy Acker and Alexis Denisof all on the same show, this may top the Alyson Hannigan and Charisma Carpenter reunion on Veronica Mars!

5. James Marsters' next guest starring appearance on Smallville will be Thursday, March 30th at 8pm on the WB. That's also the night when the next new episode of Supernatural airs at its new time at 9pm on Thursday.


In honour of IDW, I leave you with this tidbit I learned from my beloved grandma who passed away in October: celery tastes amazing when it has been soaking in water. She also always used to say "let's play it by ear" which can be very useful to remember.
cordelianne: (BuffyChosen)
The advantage of being sick is that I caught up on lots of television and LJ reading the last couple of days. The sucky part is not being able to go out with friends and do the fun things we planned. :(

24 ‘4-5pm’ (5:10) aka Jack still rocks, but so does Audrey )


Why Supenatural ‘Shadow’ (1:15) surpassed my expectations )


It’s back, baby! The Amazing Race 9 (1:1) )


Gilmore Girls ‘Bridesmaids Revisited’ (6:16). I love Rory’s friends! )


Conviction ‘Pilot’ (1:1) or At least J. August Richards is on TV again )


I noticed that being sick and pre-menstral caused me to cry at every possible sad moment during my tv watching mini-marathon, which weirdly, made the watching more enjoyable.

I have a new lovely and beautiful mood theme of BTVS Seasons 6 & 7 made by [livejournal.com profile] earth_vexer (actually originally designed for [livejournal.com profile] lateseasonlove). Amusingly, my default icon of Buffy smiling in “Chosen” is almost identical to the image used for the “happy” mood. My first thought was to change my default icon, but then – as I said to [livejournal.com profile] earth_vexer - the mood theme must be perfect for me if the mood theme selection I use most frequently is almost identical to my default userpic! *loves new mood theme*

Despite the insane weather, which a meteorologist described as the result of "a war between cold and warm fronts", I'm rushing off to go out with some friends. I really want to recap my week of television watching, so I've limited myself to writing one non-spoilery sentence about each show that I watched.

Battlestar Galactica - Sacrifice (2.16)

It made me cry and there was angst - especially Kara angst - so all good in my books.


Gilmore Girls - A Vineyard Valentine (6.15)

I will not be won over and like Logan no matter how much the show tries to make the viewers like him!!


Supernatural - The Benders (1.15)

Oh Dean, you're the best brother ever, and did I mention sooo damn sexy?!!


24 - 2pm-3pm (5.8)

Jack Bauer once again proves that only he is capable of going undercover, thwarting terrorists, disobeying direct orders and - as an added bonus - being adorable with small children!


The Daily Show

Best joke the Daily Show staff didn't have to write: The vice president accidentally shot a 78 year old man in the face.


I'm still a couple of weeks behind on Lost, Bones, Smallville, and the Office. I must get caught up while the Olympics are on and Veronica Mars is in reruns. My friend E called me last night after she watched Smallville and told me that Clark is a bastard. When I worried that he was being mean to Lex, she reassured me that they'd had a nice romantic dinner with candles and Clark was very sweet to Lex. Now, I suspect that she MIGHT be joking, but I'm enjoying her version for now.

Now off to dinner and Capote!!!
cordelianne: (Kara/Lee)
Today I have thoughts about Battlestar Galactica – Scar (2:15) (yes I know it aired on Friday but I just watched it last night), Gilmore Girls – You’ve Been Gilmored (6:14) and Supernatural – Nightmare (1:14).

BSG 2.15 )

I now have another reason to love Entertainment Weekly because of this lovely review of BSG.


Gilmore Girls 6:14 )


Supernatural 1:14 )


The neat thing about BSG, GG and SPN (Supernatural) is that they're all good in very different ways. I love enjoying such diverse shows!!!


Today’s BtVS quote is in honour of Gilmore Girls and its George Clooney references: There's a lot of books on this list. Any of them come on tape? You know, read by George Clooney or someone cute like that? (5:2)

Instead of watching George W. Bush's State of the Nation address on Tuesday night, like most Americans I watched Gilmore Girls and Supernatural. (The WB was 2nd in adults 18-49 behind Fox in ratings). To be honest, I was actually at work during the State of the Nation address and only had time to watch Gilmore Girls when I got home BUT I PVRed Supernatural and will watch it when I have time during the day (because I'm wimpy and SPN scares me).

I did watch Jon Stewart - who's been sick, poor Jon Stewart - and got my favourite quote from Bush's speech:

"America is addicted to oil."


I then watched The Colbert Report and was delighted to see David Cross (aka Tobias on Arrested Development) as "Russ Lieber"!! According to Maureen Ryan on the Chicago Tribute blog, Colbert has a feud with Lieber. This makes me wish I had more time to watch The Colbert Report more frequently.

I also have some TV news of note in my world:

- The final 4 episodes of Arrested Development will air on Friday, February 10th 8pm-10pm on Fox. Yes, that is the same time as the opening ceremony of the Olympics. Yes, Fox should announced that it will be cancelling Arrested Development any day now. I'm hoping what I've read is true, and that Showtime will pick up this fabulous show!!

- This news makes me very happy: James Marsters will return to Smallville sometime in the spring in an episode called 'Hypnotic.' He will guest star in more than this one episode.

- The WB shifts its shows around: In March Everwood moves to Monday nights at 9pm (its old time slot) and Supernatural moves to Thursdays at 9pm. Now this actually makes some sense: Smallville and Supernatural are the perfect pairing. However, Everwood shouldn't be paired with 7th Heaven because ... well it seems silly to explain that 7th Heaven is a completely crappy show (everyone knows that) whereas Everwood is one of the best shows on tv.


Speaking of Everwood, I've been irrationally worrying that it will be sacrificed when the WB and UPN become The CW. TV Gal also expresses concern for Everwood's future making me feel less silly.


Hmm. Even though it's a few hours after Veronica Mars "Rashard and Wallace Go to White Castle" (2.12), I don't have much to say about it. (Don't worry no spoilers.) I enjoyed it at the time, but I've noticed that I can't think of anything to post about VM episodes recently. Maybe because my writing partner and I are working on a VM spec script, I don't have any more energy to think about the show.

I had this very stressful and busy week, which meant that I didn't watch any of my tv until the weekend (this produced a VERY cranky and anti-social cordelianne). I thought it would be a fun experiment to see if I could keep my reactions about shows to a couple of lines each.

Sunday January 8

The Simpsons – It's funny again!!

Family Guy – Hee. Sychronized swimming and lesbians!

American Dad – I giggled and giggled during the climactic sequence (monkeys!), and I also loved Roger imagining he was in a sitcom (I never do that!).

Charmed – Probably the most original Charmed episode ever ... in a bizarro world where no one realizes this was just a cheap rip-off of a dumb summer movie starring Brangelina.

Grey’s Anatomy – You thought this would be a new episode? Ah ha ha. Welcome to the hell of yet another ABC “recap” episode (I did not watch).

Monday January 9

The Critics Choice Awards – Yay! I’m very happy about the love for Brokeback Mountain!! In other reactions, Dennis Miller as host bored me. Also, I’m beginning to think that Dakota Fanning is a robot; she gives better acceptance speeches than most adults. Maybe Tom Cruise, who – incidentally - she praised in her speech, hypnotized her.

How I Met Your Mother – I LOVE this show! It perfectly captures what it’s like to be single in your late 20s.

Out of Practice – Fun sitcom.

House x 2 - Hmm, both House reruns starred actresses who’ve been on previous seasons of 24. Could Fox be getting us ready for 24’s return?

Tuesday January 10

Gilmore Girls – This season keeps getting better and better! I was highly amused by Rory’s breakdown – the kleenexs!! Also, Lorelei looked so happy & beautiful in her wedding dress – please don’t break our hearts Amy Sherman-Palladino (aka show creator/show runner)!!!

Supernatural – Plot? Who cares about the plot? I love the Winchester brothers and their angst!! I think they’re my favourite brothers on tv. Also, this show is still scaring me at least once an episode

House – I think my favourite moment of the episode was House taking the ball away from the kid. In terms of the romantic stuff, I think it’s going to end badly (Wow! What a shocking prediction!! Maybe I should become a psychic. Ha.)

Scrubs x 2 – These episodes were even better than last week’s. I LOVED the triathlon one and how slow J.D. was, and that Elliot kept catching up and carried him in the end. Also how great was the whole kung fu sequence?!

People’s Choice Awards – After watching this I had to reassure myself that I am indeed a person (I even reminded myself of the Heritage Moment about the Persons Case which proved women are people) because “the people” and I don’t agree on much. Star Wars as best movie?! shudder.

Wednesday January 11

Lost – Watch out Charlie! Now everyone likes Sawyer and no one likes you. Also, we got Eko’s back story which was pretty interesting, and sad.

Thursday January 12

Smallville – sigh. I want James Marsters to return. On the bright side, the villain wasn’t affected by Kryptonite in any way, she was just crazy (fortunately they’ve never had any crazy girls on the show before! Ha, see above re: bizarro world).

Four Kings – Why? Seth Green, why? I only watch this for you, and it’s painful, fingernails on a chalkboard painful.

My Name is Earl – Earl working in fast food! It reminded me of the Buffy “Doublemeat Palace” (6:12) episode (that's a good and funny thing in my book). Oh, I loved the hairnet over Earl’s moustache. hee!

The Office – This show is kicking my ass. I’ve now seen some of the British version and am even more impressed with the American version because it has really become it’s own excellent show. I loved that Michael BURNED HIS FOOT ON A GRILL!! Also, Dwight with concussion was adorable!

Crumbs – I didn’t love it, but it has some potential. It’s fun to see Fred Savage and Jane Curtin again!

Beauty and the Geek – I miss Everwood! Even amusing pop culture questions like “Which of these Jennifers was Ben Affleck not engaged to? (There were pictures of J.Lo, Garner and Aniston), and “Who is the father of Britney Spear’s baby?” could not appease my sadness about the loss of Everwood until March!

Friday January 13

Living with Fran – Fluffy fun.

Reba – Not the best Reba this season, but it was fun to see Reba and Brock get along.

Twins – More fluff.

Numb3rs – Wait, did I say the Winchesters are my favourite brothers? I’d forgotten about the adorable Epps boys. I think the casino in this episode was the one where Gunn and Angel almost lost their souls in Angel “Double or Nothing” (3:18).

The Book of Daniel – This show is a lesser version of Desperate Housewives, Joan of Arcadia and Six Feet Under (I'm not even into Desperate or Six Feet Under). Even the scene when Daniel thinks the 2 mob guys are a gay couple wasn’t as funny as it could be. Just another fluffy Friday night show, I’m not sure how much longer I’ll stick it out.


I've also FINALLY been watching last season of 24 (season 4) to get ready for season 5. Wow! Season 4 is an awesome season - definitely better than seasons 2 or 3. Air Force One gets shot down (see what happens when Harrison Ford isn't President?), there's a nuclear meltdown, torture and all the best characters return (yay President Palmer!!). Chloe kicks ass, or more precisely kills a terrorist. Michelle and Tony reconcile!! Jack experiences lots of angst and people continually doubting his abilities (why would anyone do this?). I just need to watch the 2 hour finale, but I'm already psyched for season 5!!!

Whew! I think I'm experiencing tv overload. Hopefully this week won't be so annoying and I'll be able to actually watch some of my shows!
cordelianne: (Default)
Was this Monday's the best Arrested Development ever?!!! YES. YES. YES! As I was basking in my love for AD I became worried that I'm setting myself up for heartbreak when it's canceled (whimper). This reminded me of one of my favourite exchanges in one of my favourite books of all time, Anne of Green Gables, it’s when Marilla says to Anne You set your heart too much on things, Anne, I'm afraid there'll be a great many disappointments in store for you through life.

Fortunately I also remembered Anne's response:
Oh, Marilla, looking forward to things is half the pleasure of them. You mayn't get the things themselves; but nothing can prevent you from having the fun of looking forward to them. Mrs. Lynde says, `Blessed are they who expect nothing for they shall not be disappointed.' But I think it would be worse to expect nothing than to be disappointed."

I'm going to take this advice and enjoy looking forward to the next Arrested Development episode instead of worrying about it's doomed fate.

So in honour of optimism, I wanted to list some things that I love about some shows I've been watching recently.

Arrested Development

1. The Hysterical mocking of network ratings stunts. The 3-D moments (random tomato thrown at the screen!!!) *cough*Medium*cough*; the "live" moment at the end *cough*Will & Grace, The West Wing*cough*; all the celebrity cameos *cough*Will & Grace and every other show during ratings sweeps*cough*; and the cheesy promo at the beginning announcing that one of these characters will die *cough*all network promos especially for Veronica Mars and Prison Break*cough*. Interestingly they ended up mocking NBC a lot. hmm.

2. All the references to the show's imminent cancellation. Having the internet campaign "Save Our Bluths" as the title for the family's fundraiser. The discussions about being desperate, HBO, and Showtime. The direct addresses to the audience by the narrator begging us to get our friends to watch the show.

3. Responding to criticisms about the show not being accessible enough by appearing to have the characters conform to more "relatable" roles. Lindsey's "ham water", Gob as waiter, and the conversation about them being more relatable which veered to typically weird Bluth territory.

4. Andy Richter guest starring as himself as one of a family of quints. Could this be a reference to his previously canceled show?

5. Okay, okay: The whole damn episode!!

Scrubs

1. TWO episodes!! I appreciate that NBC is trying to make up for not airing Scrubs in the fall, so they’re giving us double the episodes now.

2. Carla: Why are you in your boxers?!
J.D.: When Turk gets sad he likes to call me his hunky Adonis.
They bought it? Are we that gay? sigh. I love Turk and J.D.’s friendship!!

3. J.D. laughing at his own bad jokes (I never do that!!).

4. Elliot is still endearingly neurotic!!

5. Carla convincing Turk why it’ll be cool to have a kid: Dr. Cox says it's like having a dog that gradually learns to talk. hee!

6. Jordan making friends: I am your new friend, so suck it!"

7. Scrubs is back!! It’s back!!!

Battlestar Galactica

I’ve now seen the first season of BSG - all in one day!!

1. The angst, I love all the BSG angst.

2. Starbuck aka my new girlfriend.

3. The issues that the crew have to deal with (eg. Finding water and fuel) are very real. The issues are very relatable and are exactly the type of thing one would actually be up against in that situation (you know if Cylons attacked and caused the apocalypse).

4. I love Mary McDonnell as President Roslin!! If this wasn’t seen as just a sci-fi series, she’d win an Emmy for sure, and she’d deserve it!! She’s so good at Presidential stuff, especially when she has to make cut-throat decisions, but I also love it when she acts like a mom (ie. When she chastises Adama and Apollo in “You Can’t Go Home Again”). She could totally kick Geena Davis’ ass.

5. The acting, the writing, the way it’s filmed … so basically the whole show!!!

6. The surprise at the end of the season one finale is distressing (in the best possible way).

Supernatural

I’ve now seen all the episodes that have aired so far – all in one day!!! (Thanks to the final days of my vacation.)

1. Dean and Sam Winchester’s relationship. Aw, I love the brothers.

2. I particularly love Jensen Ackles as Dean. He makes me swoony.

3. That the Winchesters fund their demon/ghost hunting with credit card scams and other illegal activities. It’s nice to see good guys not be good all the time.

4. Supernatural does scary really well. I jump at least once a show – it’s definitely daytime watching for wimpy me.

5. Good, fluffy (if scary) fun.

It’s been fun to get all excited about these shows and talk about why I love them especially because I felt let down after watching BSG season one. I really love the series so I was confused by my reaction until I realized that I’m unconsciously hoping to find a replacement show for Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It makes me sad to realize that nothing will replace my obsession intensive love for that show. Sure, there’s lots of truly amazing shows out there that are really high quality with enthralling mythologies (VM, BSG, Joan of Arcadia) but they will never replace Buffy. Instead of perceiving this as a sad thing and wallowing in my disappointment, I’m reminding myself that I’d probably be devastated if I “replaced” BtVS. So even though I have lots of shows that LOVE and enjoy, I ultimately agree with Spike: You’re the one, Buffy.
