Things that are the best ever:

When your show puts your OTP ON A PLANE for an episode.

I feel that this has yet to result in a non-stellar hour of television:
"Airborne"
"The Passenger in the Oven"
and now "Jet Lag"

I NEED MORE OF THESE YOU GUYS.
ETA: HOLY SHIT I NEED CASTLE AND BECKETT ON A PLANE. I NEED THIS YESTERDAY.

I've been on a serious NCIS kick lately (thanks, USA reruns). I mean. The characters explicitly refer to the team as a family. And Abby goes around hugging everyone all the time. I'm constitutionally incapable of resisting a show like that.

Which is all to say, FIC REC:
Agent Afloat Atlantis
It's Ziva. On Atlantis. It's awesome. Basically it spins off the end of S5 of NCIS, only instead of getting sent back to Israel, Ziva's assigned to Atlantis and ends up smack in the middle of S5 of SGA. (And let me tell you internets, *that* I would have watched.)

And because I read *way* too much fic, when I started reading AAA, I was like, "Oh awesome! She can meet up with Yoni!" And then I remembered, that's not canon, that's [livejournal.com profile] miss_porcupine's fic. Which arguably is better than canon in many ways, but still. (Seriously, she does the best military SGA fic out there. Try her novelization of The Rising (the SGA premiere), and then when you have some time and feel like being punched in the gut, read The Jenny Code. And there are a million more stories too.)

Also there are not enough NCIS/Bones crossovers on the intertubes. I found one but doesn't it seem like there should be more? Like the NCIS people find a body, only oh no, it's only a skeleton by now, so they have to call the Jeffersonian and of course then Booth demands to get involved and there is more NCIS/FBI fun stuff and Abby and Hodgins would totally geek out about bugs or something.

Also also, you know what would be the most amazing crossover ever? Bones and Castle. Because you know Brennan's aware of Castle, and she thinks he's a talentless hack who has no real understanding of forensic science, and I bet they once met at some conference or event and he totally hit on her and she was like EW, GO AWAY PLEASE, and then Beckett and Booth would be over in the corner rolling their eyes and trading war stories about the ridiculous situations their civilian partners have gotten them into.

And after that, I want a Castle/Dresden Files crossover. And a pony.

Whoops, *very* late posting this one. But this is the end, I swears!

Obsessive Sunday details, but much shorter than the other days' recaps )

D*C 2009 by the numbers:
4 days
8 costumes (2 orange!)
2 wigs
1 broken pair of shoes
8 panels attended
3 meals at Chick-Fil-A
2 autographs
3 LJ friends met for the first time IRL
2.5 parties
1 Thriller dance
and
a GAZILLION new friends!

Things to do next year:
- SLEEP the week before con! (ha)
- Watch DCTV while we're in the room
- Make a list of people I want to be sure I meet up with (and get their phone numbers)
- Remember to hand out my Moo cards!
- Spend more time working out makeup and hair for each costume
- Practice posing for the camera in each costume

Oh god all my shows are starting back up. SO MUCH TV YOU GUYS. (But so gleeful!)

Big Bang Theory 3x01, The Electric Can Opener Fluctuation )

Castle 2x01, Deep in Death )

Tonight we watched last night's House (because there was no time last night, two hours, wtf???) and I have nothing to say, really. Except Franka Potente looks kind of like Claire Danes, yeah?

The Comic-Con programming schedule is starting to be posted (they've got an awesome search/filter feature this year) and EEEEEE. My Friday is looking *ridiculous* and that's not even taking into account the SW stuff if I have to work for Mary that day. Pretty much, if left to my own devices, I would sit in B20 all day, because they moved most of the big TV panels there (instead of 6CDEF, so hopefully there won't be too much line-standing involved, THANK YOU Comic-Con!) and there is BONES and BIG BANG THEORY and other stuff I don't mind sitting through to get to them!!! And of course Aaron's FOTJ panel is sandwiched right between Big Bang Theory and Bones, argh! Well, I haven't read Omen yet and probably won't have time before con, so maybe it's for the best.

Also there is a GLEE panel and screening on Saturday! (!!!!!!!!!!) And a Dr. Horrible/Commentary screening on Thursday night! (It does not say if the audience is allowed to sing too...)

But there is no Castle. Why no Castle panel, Comic-Con? WE WANTS IT.

ETA: Okay, I was just looking at the room maps, and did they flip the orientation of B20 around or am I just crazy? I swear the stage is on the opposite side.

jaina: (house - wilson on speeeeeeed)
Monday teevee, House 5x23 and Castle 1x09 (hey, those go really well together!) )

And because we finally have the fancy new TiVo that lets you record two shows at once, we were able to tape HIMYM and BBT! We are super behind on HIMYM though. Blarg!
