It's kind of been a terrible week. TV was consistently good, though. Let me talk you all through that instead!
  1. how i met your mother )

  2. Castle was sweet, as always; loved the Castle-Martha scenes, and how casually he told Kate his full real name. That kind of ease and understatement in all the relationships is what I love this show for.

  3. Chuck was great. Chuck/Sarah are really hot together, by the way. Also, Parenthood is hit or miss for me, but this week's episode was awesome.

  4. modern family )

  5. Cougar Town was sweet and sad and hilarious, and I love this show so much, you guys. One day I'll make a list of my favourite comedies currently on television, and this would probably be in the top five (only I have no idea how to talk about how much I love it).

  6. the office )

  7. community )

  8. 30 rock (!!!) )

  9. fringe )
This was the absolute best way to spend an hour. Woo! I'm done.

ETA: The winner at the German Oktoberfest's pop&lock competition "gets to annex Poland". I LOVE YOU, COMMUNITY! (/history)

Day #8 - A show everyone should watch

Chuck and Doctor Who )

Speaking of Doctor Who, by the way - remember Matt Smith?! :D I'm sorry, I just listened to the Doctor Who episode on the Meet the Filmmakers podcast this afternoon, and Matt sounds so happy about everyone constantly cheering and applauding at things, and every time they woo! he woo!s right back at them, all excited and everything. At the point of that recording, the series hadn't premiered yet, but even by that time the crowd loved him enough to yell, "Stay!" ♥ Matt, Matt, Matt. I just adore you.

(Have we talked about how wonderful he is with that kid at the Who Proms this year? He is so delightful, you guys!! MONOLOGUING IN CHARACTER! LIVE! WITH A LITTLE KID! YOU ARE PERFECT.) (I am truly, fully considering the idea that Eleven/Matt may be my favourite Doctor, now?)

In other news, studying is hard, and boring.

30 day meme - full list )

First:
❝WHAT I THINK ABOUT YOU❞

And now TV - I wanted to do all of these in more detail, but I ended up not being able to be in the mood (if that makes any sense), so - Glee in detail, and for all the rest, one thing I wanted to point out and talk about a little.
  1. Glee - laryngitis )

  2. I think Community is the best thing on TV right now. I never am able to get into detail about this show, I really don't know how to. Last week, though, I ended Modern Warfare and wanted to scream/cry/rant because of how perfect it is - it's so inventive and interesting and crazy, but hilarious, sweet, and always heeding character. In twenty episodes that are nearly always set in a mildly surreal kind of universe, they've created sweet and realistic characters, given all of them good screen-time, allowed all of them great character development, and given them believable relationships with each other. Other shows should be paying attention.

  3. the office, parks and recreation, 30 rock )

  4. Doctor Who was fun and entertaining like Who should be. a little bit more on 'vampires of venice' )

  5. Chuck, you are a billion times more delightful when you keep away from the dumb angst.

  6. Non-TV things -
  7. I have some very clear ideas about what I want to do, study-wise, but the difficulty is in finding the best way to get to that thing. It's kind of exhausting. Education in general is being very tiresome. This is the main reason I'm writing so much more these days.

  8. The original Spring Awakening cast sang Touch Me live a few years back, and I only just found it online. Only a couple of songs from this musical has managed to get to me (I've forgotten most of the rest), and Touch Me is the kind of song where I like the main tune but don't like the arrangement, performance, or dialogue interruptions in the official recording. This live performance is perfect. No dialogue, just brilliant harmonising of around 15 people on-stage together, singing something that's kind of gorgeous and it makes me a little teary. I've listened to it more times than I'm comfortable with telling you all!

  9. The Adjustment Bureau trailer, starring Matt Damon and Emily Blunt. I wasn't interested before, but now I'm psyched. Science-fiction romance with great consequences!!! It has Anthony Mackie in it, too, who you may remember better as the man criminally robbed of a Supporting Actor nomination for how brilliant he was in The Hurt Locker.

  10. BUT INCEPTION OH MY GOD. Damn it, Nolans. How is it that even knowing next to nothing about this movie I want to watch it right now?! It can't just be the stellar cast.

  11. There was an article in Newsweek last week about gay actors. Kristin Chenoweth responded to it, Ryan Murphy responded to it, and now Aaron Sorkin's responded to it. I have nothing to say about it, other than the fact that it's all interesting, but Sorkin's was so well-expressed that I feel like watching The West Wing right now.

  12. There a couple of photos of John Krasinski being carefree and adorable online over here. The ones of him and Emily are my favourites, because this one (rather than the one of them kissing, though this one helped) makes them look really relaxed and happy with each other, and that made me 'ship them more than anything ever. :P
This is a really long post. I'm sorry.

falulatonks: ([30r] quote - worst nightmare)
[livejournal.com profile] cold_campbells, I haven't talked to you in a hundred years, and still I think you're as awesome as ever. Thank you for being like that, dorky and crazy and smart and hilarious and warm and always fun. Because if you weren't like that, how much I love you wouldn't make sense and I wouldn't be able to justify it to other people. Happy birthday!!

So here's a little bit of lame, crazy fluff. Keep in mind that I've been writing tests all week, so I'm still trying to wring out my essay-writing style from my fic-writing style (and being completely unsuccessful at it). Also, I think all of these people are stupid for taking this long, so I may have written them as stupid just because of that.

Four Ways Four Different Couples Would Probably Get Together if We Wrote For Them
and maybe it's a good thing we don't (yet), but seriously, they're taking too long.

a quick ramble about my love for Leslie Knope )

-

Other TV shows -

  1. 'psych' - love and a rant )

  2. Parenthood is still kind of nice and way better than Life Unexpected, for me. I haven't watched Glmore Girls other than a lot of the more famous clips on YouTube and the pilot, but I have a lot of love for Lauren Graham and how she's playing things right now. The whole family's so interesting, though, which is great! I love the big group scenes.

  3. Chuck was fantastic, though with a fair share of clunky bits. quick details )

  4. castle )

  5. how i met your mother )

  6. the office )

  7. parks and recreation )

  8. community )

  9. modern family )
I think it's been such a great year for comedy in general that I'm excited about Emmy noms this year - I may be too optimistic about this, but I think there'll be new shows and actors in the running, mixing things up, and I hope so much that it happens. If Amy Poehler isn't nominated for Parks this year, I will lose it. Just like Danny Pudi as Abed in Community, because as much as I think everyone in the show is well-cast and spectacular, Abed is special.

I think I got it all.

I've just started Sports Night and I finished all of the first season within the last day. more on the first sorkin project )

As you can see, I'm pretty much having a mess of feelings about SN, because I am enjoying it a lot and am interested enough to keep watching it, back to back to back to back to back, but there are things about it that are annoying me. The overwhelming feeling here is to stop SN and take out TWW again and watch the first two seasons straight through, but I'm probably not going to do that. I'm probably going to finish SN now. And then I'm probably going to watch Black Books, because I have one week to do whatever I want without feeling guilty about it, and that's the most freedom I'm going to have for the next eight months. So.

I'm sorry this entry is so full of TV rubbish. This is my first day of eight days that I have off, and I'm going to spend it wasting my time a little bit, because it's basically the only time I can do this for the next eight months or so.

-- rachu

ETA: Maybe I'll watch Firefly now instead. I feel like watching amazing writing right now.

ETA again: JOE/DEMI ARE OFFICIALLY DATING?!! KJASLDAJDKASJDALS I HAVE BEEN AKLSJDKALSJDAKSJDAING ABOUT THIS SINCE I FOUND OUT!! ASKLDJA!!! SORRY ABOUT THE CAPS i'll stop now i'm done aksdajksdlasd.
