"no opinion. they are condescending."
  1. Random things about Soulmates that I loved: god this is long )

  2. The Office was fantastic. quick feelings ) Next week. :/

  3. Community was surprisingly funny, I think. I like being able to like this show! I don’t think they sustained it, but the first ten minutes were brilliant, and overall I think they handled the clip-show concept really well. Also: called Jeff/Britta after the Halloween episode. Also: the little bits of the adventures they've had off-screen were maybe my favourite moments of this show ever - glee club! ghost cowboy town! glee club!

    I’m disappointed with 30 Rock. This show really doesn’t work in the one-hour format, and it felt more like an extended “remember this old character? remember this joke? sometimes Liz makes up words!” callback episode than it should have - and at the same time, somehow, it felt too rushed? How does that even work? Jenna’s storyline was all over the place. The episode itself was fine, and definitely better than most of S4, but still.

  4. Have I mentioned that Cougar Town is my second-favourite comedy on TV right now? I think it balances humour and emotion a lot better than Scrubs used to, and I think the ensemble is fantastic, etc., but really I just wanted to say how much I love the women on this show. On paper and at first glance these ladies are all pretty stereotypical ladies - the shrill high-maintenance mother-type, the sharp, cool, mean and sly type, the young, ditzy, easily-emotional type - but I really love how fully-fleshed out they all are, and how much they own themselves. They are strong and independent and aren’t one-sided at all - and I love how much they love and support one another, because fictional ladies being nice to one another is ridiculously rare and this makes me happy. This paragraph of love was prompted by Laurie’s Walk of Awesome in the second episode this week - own it, girl.

  5. Doctor Who’s finally back!!! !!!! !! This show airs right in the middle of when I’m asleep, so when I’ll watch it depends on how early I wake up for it, but you guys, I’m fucking psyched. New Matt Smith Faces! River Song! Amy Pond! Rory Williams. (I love the guy, but I’m hoping the sixth series does enough for his character than my ‘.’ turns to an exclamation point. I’m waiting for it, show.)

just much less - touchy-feely
they mainly happen somewhere warm and sunnyyyyyyyy!
  1. I watched Tangled again today, this time with [livejournal.com profile] snoorella and [livejournal.com profile] imprinted_soul, and for free (!!!). A few more thoughts behind the cut, just because I am a sappy, Disney-lovin' fool. sometimes i can't choose between italics and the caps lock key )

  2. As a side-note, crunching on popcorn is annoying but easy to tolerate, and people checking their cell phones for texts is okay (although no calling, ugh, what is wrong with you), but I draw the line at the food. I want to kill the person who thought it was a great idea to allow cinema food to include things like hot dogs and nachos and pasta and whatever else, because it is wrong that a cinema smells like anything beyond popcorn, and it actually gets disgusting to know people are eating full meals sitting a few seats down from you when everyone else is trying to enjoy a movie. And as a vegetarian I'm fine with smelling meat, I'm completely used to it, but it's unbelievably worse in an air-conditioned area like that, and when all I'm doing is watching a movie. I'm sorry for the rant, but REALLY. REALLY, CINEMA-GOERS?

  3. I don't have too much to say about Merlin, but the setting-up of the Round Table of Badassery was well-done, I think, because it felt both epic/awesome and also like all characters there were people who deserved to be there, which is nice, and it's more than I'm used to from this show. Also, knowing Katie McGrath has forced to smirk this often has made me like her more, feel better about watching her, and get really annoyed with the direction on this show.

    And finally, I am having a serious Colin Morgan Problem, but I don't know what to do with myself every time I see something of him that makes me flail on Tumblr, and I do think that most of my tags are written when I'm not paying attention to my brain. I love him (and Merlin Emrys, the bravest of them all!!!1) very much.

  4. Cougar Town is wonderful (Jules and Bobby being to laugh together over the boat made me smile and smile), Castle is warm and comfortable and delightful (I always love when Castle gets particularly enthusiastic about something), and Phil Dunphy chasing after the salesman with cologne is probably the greatest thing I've seen this week (but then again, Phil Dunphy is one of the greatest things ever in general, so thank you, Modern Family).

  1. OK, Community is brilliant, but this week's episode reminded me that sometimes this show gets a little too caught up with that brilliance and fails to let me connect with it in any other way.

    community thoughts and unnecessary feelings )

  2. 30 Rock, on the other hand, proved that it can get sweeter storylines pretty well when it wants to. 30 rock love )

  3. This week's The Office was weird because I should dislike it - it's absurd, unbelievable, and therefore mostly unlike the subtle, softer, sweeter nature of the humour that I loved this show for - but it's also ridiculously funny. the office, quickly )

  4. Modern Family this week probably had one of its funniest episodes. Loved it! modern family, quickly )

  5. Oh, Cougar Town, you are delightful and funny and also kind of heartbreaking. Thank you. cougar town, quickly )

  6. Steve Carell and Stephen Colbert's Everybody's Talking 'Bout Sully is both hilarious and ridiculously catchy. I love them a lot.

  7. I feel like I had non-TV things to talk about, but they're mostly along the lines of "studying a lot. am bored and tired and annoyed."

  8. I totally watched Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers dancing in YouTube clips for around an hour this afternoon - so talented, so classy (and god, the moves she pulls off in heels?!). I love black and white movies because their beauty and enjoyability is almost completely reliant on their stars' talents and charms. It's simple, unpretentious, and gorgeous.

    Also, I find Cheek to Cheek intensely romantic (and that's not a word I like to use) - the way the notes climb at and my heart beats so that i can hardly speak, oh my heart. I can't be the only one who gets a little heartclutchy at these things, right?
This entry is so chatty, but I just feel like blabbering on a little bit. Sorry?

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.
