"uh...the fuckest uppest."

Ugh, you know what, the winner for Day #8's A Show Everyone Should Watch should almost definitely have been either Leverage or Sherlock. Leverage because I told my dad to watch it, and he did, and he absolutely loves it (we're up to the end of S2 here, and I'm telling him he can watch the S3 premiere on my laptop, but he refuses!) - but it's also because I love these characters and their relationships, and how grand and exciting and smart and fun it almost always is. Sherlock for the same reasons, with more love for its intelligence and the fantastic Britishness of the actors, the words they say, the way they say these words, the places they go to - but also because I've also recommended this to my dad, and he's interested.

And now I feel like if I find a TV show that I deem good enough, consistent and fun and well-written enough, to be recommended to my father, everyone should watch it.

Day #9 is Best Scene Ever, which is dumb because I have no idea how the answer to this is supposed to be approached at all. I'm going to push it back to the end of the meme, when hopefully I have more time and a greater idea of what the answer to this should be.

So Day #10 and #11, instead!:

Day #10: A show you thought you wouldn’t like but ended up loving

Spaced )

Day #11: A show that disappointed you

This could be How I Met Your Mother, but it looks like the writers know how to push it back on-track. It could've been 30 Rock, but I'm not disappointed in it so much as I'm losing interest in it (I can't really remember many things that aren't guest-star-related over the last season). It could've been Glee, but I don't think I had high expectations for it, not really - I got annoyed with it, but never disappointed.

Instead I'll go with a show I believed had potential, before it had been wrecked, in my opinion: Bones )

30 Day TV Meme: Day #2 - A show that you wish more people were watching

Fringe )

(If you want to read a prettier, more eloquent/detailed post about why more people should be watching Fringe, try this.)

Runner-Ups: I just want to give Parks and Recreation another shout-out here, because it’s my favourite show right now and I don’t know how that happened but it’s ridiculous that so many people wrote it off so quickly. 

Also Better Off Ted, which is the most intelligent comedy I've seen on TV in years (and they don't even resort to crude jokes as much as most TV does these days), and while I'm upset that it's been cancelled, I'm even more upset that there are people who really, really don't even know what they're missing.


By the way, Sherlock is fantastic, and it's only three episodes of 90 minutes, and the second episode is mostly skippable, while the first two are brilliant, so all in all that's only three hours of your time to be spent in an engaging, thrilling way with awesome actors/characters (Sherlock and Watson are pretty much an old married couple, too) and excellent story-telling. (I'm sorry for using so many adjectives here, BUT REALLY.) Basically: why the hell are you not watching this?!
