emeraldstag: Sailor Moon's Usagi & Luna (anime)
I fell asleep before I could finish this, but before I unravel in some mindless TV fun that I found entertaining when [livejournal.com profile] indefiance did it, I wanted to wish a late Happy Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] mugglewitch1 who's birthday it was on Tuesday! I always find mid-week birthdays a little weird because it's hard to celebrate during the week but I hope you find time to make some memorable memories!

Now TV meme time!

Pick five of your favorite shows, in no particular order, before you read the below questions, then answer them!

1) Chuck
2) Star Wars Clone Wars
3) Spectacular Spider-Man
4) Legend of the Seeker
5) Smallville

(For fun I rolled some dice to pick the slots for the shows to mix things up.)

20 Questions )

Been using the current hiatus between new episodes to catch up on the last three. I saw "Torn" and "Hunger" fairly quickly but I wanted to wait until I finally had the time to see "Princess" this week to comment on the episodes. Also with Seeker S3 in jeopardy, I really hope someway it keeps continuing because I've become entrenched with these characters and don't want to say goodbye to them way before their time.

When in the Margrave's presence a lady must always, without exception, speak in rhyming dactylic tetrameter. )

Just in time before "Torn" premieres this weekend, I finished catching up with everyone's favorite Seeker, Mother Confessor, rogue Mord-Sith and Wizard of the First Order.

As long as the Mother Confessor's pure heart beats, the Keeper is doomed to fail. )

I was going to wait until I completely caught up before posting on the show but with a new Smallville, a busy saturday night, and an itch to write something for Porn Battle IX going on I figured I'd write up my thoughts on these two episodes before I forget.

We can name a new Seeker but we'll never find anyone to replace Richard. )

I've been hitting myself for not being very active on LJ this month outside of Chuck reviews (LOL) and it's very simple - January has been a pretty non-interesting month for my free time which has limited what I have to talk about that isn't about my struggles with cutting specific angles with a circular saw (and the frustration in finding the spare battery for the cordless drill to be not charged) or the unrelenting misery of filing/organizing papers. Yadda, yadda, yadda ... Instead, how about a meme that I borrowed from [livejournal.com profile] beautygirl777 & [livejournal.com profile] awesomemmerz?

Now with time to catch up on every series I am watching or trying to watch, I have the chance to talk about Legend of the Seeker, where I'd stayed up to date but hadn't had the opportunity to talk about the episodes. And I don't think I could've picked two drastically different episodes to group together in my discussion.

Are you saying I'm not doing enough for you? )
emeraldstag: Sailor Moon's Usagi & Luna (sci-fi)
I still found last episode's revelations a little hard to swallow, especially with it happening off screen. Clearly they're building up the bad news that hopefully won't reach much further (only one other person really I could think they could get rid of off screen that would upset me), but I must say it was fun to get back to an episode that felt like the lighthearted times in Season 1.

I had to! If the Keeper wins, everyone will die! )
emeraldstag: Sailor Moon's Usagi & Luna (harry potter)
I'll be honest, I wasn't looking forward to this episode from what I'd read it was going to be about and what the title was. Amazingly it went in a completely different direction than I was expecting but by the end I was left with a depressed feeling anyway.

All I want is a room and a hot meal ... and maybe something a little sweet. )

Wow! There sure are a lot of birthdays in November among my friends! That would be Scorpio right? I'm terrible with the astrology dates, and I think there are a few that have like differing days - it seems very confusing for the casual everyday man. Anyway, that was a long rambling that got nowhere near the point that I wanted to say:

Happy Birthday [livejournal.com profile] amberwood17!!! Tuesday is a little rough to celebrate a birthday on with the week barely have started, but I hope you are able to find the time and energy to make your birthday a memorable one! A drabble is on the way (eventually) so keep a look out in the near to late future. lol. XD

On to other celebratory news, hot water has returned! Came out none of the repair work I'd done on the thing had made a difference, and a repairman finally came out this morning to fix it. I had only done a little piece, and the whole part had to be replaced, so my work was like fixing a window on the Titanic, room might be closed but that's not going to stop water from getting everywhere else. (Terrible analogy I know). -_-

I also wanted to ask my friends that are also fans of Merlin or Legend of the Seeker if there are any specific users that make great icons of either of those series that you like to use yourself? I wish I had the time to make some myself but I simply don't, and while I've been following icon communities for both series recently, I don't want to have to dig through the archives for icons from older episodes if I don't have to. Any help would be appreciated. ♥

Lastly a little comic talk. The February solicitations came out this week and OMG I really like the new Batgirl outfit! They have an advanced peek at the figure coming out in July and dang do i want to buy it (and I rarely am wow'd by figures). I'd link but CBR has been not working for me tonight. (Scratch that. Newsarama has a pic too.)

And a little on the Supergirl book, I know I'm not the popular opinion when I say I think Jamal Igle's art on the book has been average at best, but I notice there's a fill-in artist for the upcoming issue (I assume Igle's working hard on issue 50) and it looks better to me. And also while she seemed like a mean bitch at first, I've really come to like Kara's mom, Alura and hoping that she continues to be a character in the Superman books once this New Krypton storyline wraps up for better or worse.

I was really surprised with the premiere and the direction they decided to take. The explanation for Darken Rahl's presence in the S2 promo posters made some sense for the world, and made things a lot more creepier with what Richard, Kahlan & Zedd will have to face this season.

If we have to kill to save an innocent life, we'll do it. )

It's been a long month since I finished watching the first season, and have been eagerly anticipating the start of season 2. I can only imagine what others have been feeling that watched the show on-time when the first season ended back in May (6 months!). I've been steering clear of S2 previews and spoilers for the most part, and still haven't had a chance to read the book series yet (which I know it's veered away from) so I know nothing to expect in this new season.

The truth is, you are for the Keeper. )
emeraldstag: Sailor Moon's Usagi & Luna (celebrity)
I can't believe it's been over two months since I last talked TV (guess that's what happens when you're MIA for a whole month, lol). And I've made a lot of progress (finishing 5 seasons of the 6 shows I was watching) just in time for new seasons to start up this Fall and Winter.

Season Two of Spectacular Spider-Man? Done! )

Chuck Season 2? In progress. )

Talking S1 of Iron Man: Armored Adventures with a few episodes left. )

Done with Season 1 of Legend of the Seeker, Waiting for S2! )

Ready for S2 of Clone Wars. )

Minor S1 Merlin Comments )

I'll be starting on Merlin season 2 this weekend, still on S2 of Chuck, S1 of Iron Man, starting Star Wars Clone Wars S2 tomorrow, waiting for the Seeker S2 premiere (in Nov?) and hoping for a third season to Spider-Man. In prime time I'm really only watching Supernatural & Smallville. I wanted to watch Community but I've missed the first few and need to catch up on it. But I am thinking of starting a few other shows as these slots open up, I'm looking at Mad Men, True Blood, Dollhouse & Friday Night Lights - we'll see if I get a chance to try any of them any time soon.

Before I go I wanted to wish a happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] mia_chan, I hope your day was to your liking and you have a good time celebrating. :)

TV Update

It's been three weeks since I mentioned my mission to catch up on some tv shows and I thought I'd catch everyone up with how it's going.

Where there were 7 now only 6 TV shows that I am watching )

Lastly, I'm wondering if anyone knows any websites or LJ/DW communities for any of these shows so I can check them out. I've found wikis and a few places but I'd like to look for icons, fic and things (maybe to make my own) so if you can share any places to go that would be awesome. I'm in desperate need to display my fandom for these shows. :)

PS: Trying to decide if I should check out True Blood. Keep hearing good things about it.

It's been clear to me for awhile now that I've been running dry when it comes to reading new fic in my veteran fandoms and if I wanted the ability to increase the amount of new fic I might like to read I would have to go outside my stand-byes and watch some new series to get the ball rolling. Here's how it's going:

7 Shows I'm Watching That Are New to Me )

If I remember I'll try to post my updated thoughts every week, unless I have something more important to say but I doubt that. :P
