Return of the TV rundown

I thought maybe I’d get going on a few more of my shows (and there’s few new ones I’m planning on giving a shot) once the baseball playoff got to a more manageable level, but instead...I started a new project (points at icon). So for now, three weeks’ worth of Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow (I plan to get caught up on Supergirl before we get to some kind of epic crossover I’m sure is coming, but it’s still on the back burner)/

Bit of baseball, mostly Supergirl

So the Rockies ended the season as they passed so much of it, losing to a team they should have beaten because the bullpen couldn’t keep it together. But as I commented to some other people recently; sure the Rockies were mediocre this season, that’s about three steps better than the last few seasons.

But anyway, I did watch Supergirl once it got to Netflix, and I did finish it up in time for the new season to start (I still have a few episodes of the other DC-CW shows to go), I started out recording my thoughts but then only did so when I actually had something to say, and I guess I’ll finally post them for anyone interested.

Some thoughtsCollapse )

Starting a Robin Hood watch

So I decided to watch Robin Hood again, and because I’m feeling super lazy about it, opted to watch it on Netflix instead of getting out the DVDs. Now I’ve noticed watching a few other things on Netflix the last few months that they don’t always have captions I know should be there, but I think this might be the funniest one. Because they still have the sound effect of the thwacky establishing arrow, but not the location caption. So while *I* know what that sound effect is and in most cases understand what’s being established, I imagine it must seem odd if someone hasn’t watched it before.

Also, the fact that one of Netflix’s teaser images is a s3 promo shot including Kate and Tuck...not a great move, as I hate both of them.

And a few other observations about this episodeCollapse )

Catching up on shows (mostly Reign)

So I’ve been making full use of Netflix to catch up on CW shows (I’m not sure if there will be time by the time Arrow/Flash/LoT get there to rewatch them before the seasons start, but I’ve still got 2/3 of the Arrow/Flash season before it to revisit so I’m not anxious yet).

I watched s2 of Jane the Virgin (I might have had some thoughts, but not many; it was fine) and s1 of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (which I quite liked and did have thoughts on but never quite figured out how to put in to words). And I rewatched season 1-2 of Reign then went back to my own archives to finally watch s3.

And Reign I have thoughts about...about a lot of things.

Probably tldr, I"m a ramblerCollapse )

Belated promo roundup

So I was going to put my quick thoughts on the new Rogue One trailer and then remembered I had never posted my various thoughts I had while the Comic Con trailers/promos were coming out a couple weeks ago, so here’s a lot of trailer thoughts.

DCMU, DCCW, Marvel, and othersCollapse )

Meme snagged from ladyhadhafang

It's been ages since I had a meme to play with, I miss it, so let's get this going.

Send me a character and I'll tell you:

My NOTP for them
My OTF (One True Friendship) for them
My OTP for them
My second choice pairing for them
My fluffy pairing for them
My angsty pairing for them
My favorite poly ship for them
My weirdest pairing for them


End of Castle round up

I actually finished these up a week or two ago, but then I ended up diving into Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries and forgot to post about the end of Castle. But here was what I was thinking as I finished off this series.

Castle 8x18-22 (finale)Collapse )

More superhero shows roundup

Okay, so rounding out the DC-CW shows for the season along with Agents of SHIELD, both episode reviews and end of season thoughts. I’ve got plenty of shows I still need to catch up on that I may or may not do episode by episode reactions to (Caste I might since I’ve done most of the season, but things like Reign where I’m so far behind probably not) and we’ll see if I then think to do a season reaction when I do get through it. I’m also not sure I’ll do them next season, there have been good and bad points to doing them that I’ll weight before next fall. So enjoy the last of these for some indeterminate amount of time (it could be a week if I do Castle, or it could be never, who knows).

The Flash 2x22Collapse )

Arrow 4x22Collapse )

Legends of Tomorrow 1x16Collapse )

Agents of SHIELD 3x20-22Collapse )

The Flash 2x23Collapse )

Arrow 4x23Collapse )

So here's two weeks worth of TV show reviews including my rush to catch up on AoS before seeing Civil War. Thought I should actually post this before starting this week's round of shows (and playing catch up again).

The Flash 2x20Collapse )

Agents of SHIELD 3x11Collapse )

Arrow 4x20Collapse )

Legends of Tomorrow 1x14Collapse )

Agents of SHIELD 3x12-19Collapse )

The Flash 2x21Collapse )

Arrow 4x21Collapse )

Legends of Tomorrow 1x15Collapse )

Also, I have seen Civil War twice now and have many many thoughts on how I want to make cup after cup of hot cocoa for Tony (I’m not sure what I’m drinking, but I’m cure he needs cocoa). In the end I don’t care who’s right and wrong (because they’re all wrong to varying degrees), my heart is just broken for Tony. I haven’t quite decided if I should be writing up a huge review or just trying to write fic, but all these thoughts need to go somewhere.

Though I do think I’ll try and finally make that Tony/Pepper vid I’ve been considering for a while, it might make me feel better.

A smattering of TV roundup

So I got close to catching up on Castle and watched the DC-CW shows, and that's all that's in this one.

Castle 8x15Collapse )

The X-Files 1.05-06

I said I was going to be posting more of these and then I didn't, my usual reliability when it comes to posting schedule.

1x05: The Jersey DevilCollapse )

1x06: ShadowsCollapse )

The X-Files 1.03-04

I may be posting several of these for a bit as I've gotten quite a bit ahead, but we'll see how I do with that.

1x03: SqueezeCollapse )

1x04: ConduitCollapse )

So I was on vacation there for a week of so, my and my folks went to Phoenix for the tail end of spring training and caught opening day between the D-back and the Rockies. This brings my parents' total of baseball stadiums they've been to to around 20 and mine to three, but I'm less on a mission to go to them all. None of us had ever been to an opening day before and it was actually a lot of fun (the last few years most Rocks games we make it to are not so well attended), and that game at least the Rockies won in handy fashion.

I ended up talking baseball longer than I thought so I"ll put it in a cutCollapse )

Now some TV reaction reviews.

The Flash 2x16Collapse )

Arrow 4x16Collapse )

The Flash 2x17Collapse )
