I am a sap, and Christmas episodes make me intolerably mushy, so here, have some flail with regards to Thursday night TV.

  1. Three weeks ago - in the middle of my exams, ugh - my iPod hung, and when I finally got my Macbook to recognise it again it had restored itself, i.e. memory completely wiped. My music is divided between stuff I had on my old computer and what I have now on my Macbook but weeding through that stuff is OK - I'll get everything back - but I'm angry now because I had THE BEST PLAYLISTS, YOU GUYS. There was one I had dedicated to sleepy music, which was mostly soft, and there was dedicated to simple music, which was acoustic-type or clean, easy pop, and there was shower music, for the songs I never skip and always sing along to, and rainy music, etc., and now I have over 7000 songs (and counting; there are albums I'm still remembering I haven't added yet) and that's just too much to go through.

    This is the worst. I know it's a stupid problem, but I organise all of my things very seriously, and that's four years' worth of organisation that I've lost because I added a corrupted track to my iPod. Grrrr.

  2. I'm going through all of my entries and re-tagging them and it's taking a long time. It's also difficult because I do everything in point form and sometimes I mention things in detail, but sometimes I mention them fleetingly either to support something else I'm writing in detail about or just to say dumb things like "ohho I'll catch up on this now!", which basically means I waste a lot of time rereading my entries to figure out whether to tag it for that thing or not to. It's not even important, but I like being organised about this crap, which makes me irritating. (That was not a typo. I am irritating.)

  3. I had to take a break from my Vampire Diaries marathon because I was watching too much at a time, but very quick thoughts behind the cut - and mostly spoiler-free, if you're worried )

  4. This week's Community was wonderful. mom, how many lies have i been living?! )

  5. FRINGE! entrada )

    I'm beginning to realise I'm incredibly biased when it comes to talking about Fringe - I love it too much. So this is how it feels to not want to talk about things that annoy you about shows you love!

  6. The Office this week looked like it was going to be frustrating and annoying, but the Michael-Oscar storyline was inspired, and the Pam-Dwight storyline made me both laugh and sniffle. Thank you, thank you, show, for addressing the things Pam has lost or has done wrong - and I loved that it wasn't the focus of a storyline, but just a motivation of the actual story, and I loved that it was short. Actually I liked a lot about how this episode was edited/put together. Sometimes I feel like this show uses the excuse of a documentary to be a little lazier about this sort of thing, which I guess works and it suits its old style, but the jokes worked better because of where certain shots were cut or certain scenes were shot, I think, which really helped.

  7. I'm going to be making a list of all the movies I want to be getting through (and in order!) and then I'll start on it properly.

This entry is really long, I'm sorry.

My A'levels start tomorrow and they are big and frightening. It's likely that I'll drop by and read entries here and there (Fringe reaction posts!!1!*), but I won't do a lot of commenting, and definitely no entries.

Ugh. At some point last week I just wanted to write all my papers at once so I wouldn't have to wait anymore. And Deathly Hallows** is released somewhere in the middle too and I have movies I want to see and I just - ugh, fast forward, please, everything.

-- rachu***

* People are being disappointed with last week's Fringe because it wasn't as good as the first four episodes, but please, if every episode this season was as good as the first four episodes, I would never want to watch any show again without talking about how terribly they write arcs, how horribly they write character development, how clunkily they write action and intensity, how dreadfully they write consistent progress. Yes, the case was too-obivously connected to Olivia's story, but I enjoyed this episode so much anyway (maybe it's because I haven't watched any other TV show this week?). Therefore! three things I loved about Amber 31422 below the cut -  ) Lalala, love this show.

** I've been listening to the score a lot, and listening to Ron Leaves (Desplat is incredibly unimaginative with the track titles on his scores - I know the progression and the importance of pretty much every scene thanks to the titles and the length and the mood of the piece, for goodness' sake) I got all wibbley because I love all three of them together and that scene will probably (almost definitely) make me sniffle. There were three scenes that got to me in the last book, and I think two of them happen in the first movie. Damn.

Also, anyone else worried that the second movie will end up action-heavy, simply because of the way the book progresses? I think there's enough material there to make it work - I don't think the battle at the end will end up taking up 60% of the second movie, or anything - but it's not very balanced, is it? And HP movies love the big bangs.

*** Shall we talk about how even my goodbye posts are REALLY LONG? I'm sorry, I just have so much to say. This entry is largely irrelevant, though, really. In summary: going away for a little less than three weeks because of scary-major exams, but I don't know how to stop talking about Fringe.

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.

I want to be super detailed or at least partly organised when I talk about Fringe, but I don't know how to do it! I couldn't even rearrange these points after I'd written the whole thing. I'm sorry for this, I guess? It's not my fault, though.

(I'm writing the rest of this entry four hours after I was done with Fringe.)

  1. community )

  2. The Office was adorable and really funny and maybe it's because I didn't think about it much, or because I haven't had expectations for it for a while, but I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. I love everyone!

  3. 30 Rock was good, too, and I'm glad that I feel like that about this show. I love Matt Damon. I also loved that Jack booked a "JackFest", and Liz did that thing with the Victorian wallpaper - that's a level of high interference into each other's lives that we haven't seen in ages, and I kind of love when we get to see them influencing each other more, because I love their friendship. Last season, we got so many scenes where they just walked into each other's rooms, talked about everything that had happened to them, made some weird joke, and then walked right out. It got annoying.

    The Pete/his wife joke was gross, though. I disapprove.
I feel like it's relevant to mention that Community briefly mentioned Toy Story 3, and The Office briefly mentioned Inception. Clearly Community is the cooler show.

I am ridiculous.

ETA: The Office - when Toby and Gabe told Michael he needed to go through a HR course, I started hoping with all my heart that it would be with Holly. It's not just me, right? Or am I that pathetic about Michael/Holly?
