( 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.
Eight days to new Doctor Who
. Eight days to Matt Smith and his glorious face!
