Parks and Recreation - Jerry's Painting feelings. I don't know what I'm doing with myself. This is long and there are no pretty picspam accompaniments. I'M SORRY.

every time i look at it i think to myself, 'wow. what can't that centaur woman do?' )

Basically, lalalala, I love this show so much.

"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.)

post-'fancy party' feelings, because i need to get back into posting here )

I haven't watched anything else from the Thursday comedies yet, but since everything will be compared to Parks and Recreation, it's probably better for them.

Other things I watched that I should really talk about:
  • Shameless (US) - which is lively and brilliant. I don't know how this show captured my heart so quickly, but within minutes of the Gallaghers settling into that practised morning routine, I was hooked. (I think I've loved stories like this since I read the Boxcar Children series.) I love their bravado and how much they throw themselves into both surviving and letting their siblings survive. and Steve should go away. also, this cast is really brilliant. I love them all.

  • Luther - this show isn't just intense, it's fucking insane. I don't have other words.

  • The Good Wife and Castle are my favourite dramas on TV right now. I love Parks and Recreation and miss Cougar Town terribly. I haven't watched Modern Family lately, but I'm a little cranky with it.

  • I started Rome and it's magnificent - beautiful and crazy and bloody and classy and genius. I will talk about it more the further I get into it, because I just finished the fifth episode.


My internship is going brilliantly, and my boss agrees - to the extent that he's left me in-charge of the local office while he goes off overseas for a working holiday. in-charge. Everyone's incredulous that he'd left a nineteen-year-old in charge of everything, but all I'm doing on top of clearing my regular task lists is checking the mail and sending off packages of book orders and checking everyday that the office isn't broken into. heh.

I don't know why I left you guys, I'm sorry. I promise I'll stay; LJ is still the best.

P.S.: Eight days to new Doctor Who. Eight days to Matt Smith and his glorious face!

what did you say?"

Aghhh, damn it. This week's Parks and Recreation was so great that I've had to rethink my "Community is the best thing on TV right now" statement. I've thought about it. Community is the best thing, Parks is my favourite thing, Modern Family is the most consistent thing. There, I've done it!

Why Parks is my favourite - i've kept this half as non-spoilery as possible )

Episode-specific - i think i've already watched this episode four times. )

I can't wait for the finale. I love this show.

Community was great as usual, obviously ("Annie is the Ark of the Covenant!"). And The Office was as surprisingly-not-bad as it's been this season! :P '30 rock', though -  ) I can't wait for the finale, too, though. This is going to be fun!

I'll go be productive now. Maybe listen to Glee music in the background. THE LEAKED SONGS ARE EXCITING.
