Broadchurch, a few thoughts

So I finally decided to take some time and watch Broadchurch. It’s been in and out of my queue since the first season and I finally decided that to stave off the part of me that kind of wants to rewatch Doctor Who, I’d watch Broadchurch instead. I powered through it in like a week and I do have some thoughts.

Only vague spoilers, but covers all three seasonsCollapse )

This week in superhero TV

These are mostly all shorter than you might expect; some are actually short because I didn’t have much to say, and some are just shorter than you would think.

Supergirl 2x21Collapse )

Agents of SHIELD 4x22Collapse )

The Flash 3x22Collapse )

Arrow 5x22Collapse )

A rather please TV rundown

Oops, forgot to get this up over the weekend, but here it is now.

Also, I had quite god intentions of doing my LoT s2 wrap-up thoughts, but between baseball and my review the Arrow-verse project I haven’t gotten to it, so we’ll see what happens when this season in general ends.

Supergirl 2x19Collapse )

The Flash 3x20Collapse )

Agents of SHIELD 4x20Collapse )

Arrow 5x20Collapse )

A very focused TV roundup

Two weeks’ worth of AoS, back to having more superheroes to talk about this coming week; though I have been watching a reviewing a lot of s1 Arrow (I should probably start actually posting some).

I’m also fighting off an urge to rewatch Doctor Who, between Legends pulling me back in that direction and then randomly stumbling through some stuff about Doctor/Rose reminding me how much I loved that ship the pull to rewatch is pretty strong. Maybe when I’m not so invested in watching baseball I’ll give into that impulse.

Agents of SHIELD 4x18Collapse )

logical...not so much

So I have decided to try buckling down and actually doing on one the many ideas for a review series I've had, and for some reason the most logical idea I had was to review all the DC-CW shows from the beginning.

Go here for intro post and the DW comm I'm using for this project

Apr. 20th, 2017

Hmm, it seems like everyone that was left on lj is up and moving to Dreamwidth in one big push. Which is fair, and I'll probably start doing more with that once I figure out how I want to handle it. I have been just using my DW account as a fanfic journal while I keep my various chatter to lj. But lj is already dead enough, more people leaving means I should find some way to actually follow at least the edges of fandom (since I refuse to tumblr or twitter).

So if you have a DW account that I should follow (either with my existing account or as I decide what to do with this migration) let me know.

Also, there's an Arrow end of season trailer up and I have thoughts:
Read more...Collapse )

TV rundown...of sorts

Only two things to review here, but the LoT one is long...and probably focused on the wrong things, but these are things that matter to me.

Legends of Tomorrow 2x17Collapse )

Agents of SHIELD 4x16Collapse )

Fic: (LoT scene rewrite) Untitled

So I'm waiting to see if I want to review any other shows this week besides Legends and Agents, but warning now, the Legends reaction was...incoherent rage over [Spoiler (click to open)]Rip leaving that I have since tried to add more thoughts to. Then I felt the need to do the LoT writers a solid and rewrite the relevant scene so it made a bit more sense.

More info and fic under the cutCollapse )

It's been a while on this one

So I’m reviving this old meme
Pick something I have written (or anything else I've posted I suppose) and I will write a "DVD commentary" on it.

I’m not sure how well I’ll remember a lot of the stuff I wrote since my recent Rip/Sara fic is literally the first thing I’ve posted in more than three years, but I was rereading the commentary I did on TWTS and found it kind of inspiring. Like to the point where I’m getting more and more tempted to rewatch s1-3 of TVD and see if I can remember where that AU was supposed to go next. But I’ve also been nursing a LoT s2 AU that I might write over the summer (not that I haven’t liked s2, but it’s an idea), and depending on how Reign ends up ending I might revisit a couple ideas I had for that one. There’s always my attempts at Final Testament Book 2 and the other RH AU I made a lot of progress on during NaNo. I have for years wanted to write a big piece of Coulson/May backstory fic and strongly suspect this season will end with me really wanting to finally do so.

And that’s just fic, I’ve presently got strong notions of doing a detailed review rewatch of something once this season of things ends. I really want to do Legends, but it seems like it will be a good time to do Arrow since we’ll be looped back to the beginning And there’s always my B5 rambling on the back burner.

So let’s see if I can motivate a few more muses by revisiting old stuff and see what I remember.

Rambling TV roundup

Agents of SHIELD will be back this week, so next time my post won’t be *all* about CW shows.

Supergirl 2x17Collapse )

The Flash 3x18Collapse )

Legends of Tomorrow 2x16Collapse )

Arrow 5x18Collapse )

Reign 4x07Collapse )

Another TV rundown

So I got really wordy about a couple of these episodes, with more complaining than I usually like to do, but one of these episodes really pissed me off and another I found pretty underwhelming but needing a lot of words for. It does bring into focus why I’m not really reviewing my non-superhero shows as those reviews would be very short comparatively; a lot of “It was okay, I liked some bits, am not sure about others.”

Supergirl 2x16Collapse )

The Flash 3x17Collapse )

Legends of Tomorrow 2x15Collapse )

Arrow 5x17Collapse )

Kind of meme

Send me a fandom and I'll tell you:
-My top five characters
-My top five ships

I'm expecting lots of common elements.



So I find myself kind of wanting to watch Iron Fist, mostly because it seems like Marvel's answer to Arrow (rich kid gets lost in the wilderness -ish- for years, comes back to be a superhero). But I haven't watched Daredevil s2 or Luke Cage and can't seem to work up any desire to do so. So anyone who knows, can I jump ahead like this or do I have to wait for a time when I might give a damn about DD again? Because I don't know that such a time will ever happen (I thought s1 was just okay and nothing I've heard about s2 excites me, I did like JJ though)
