I know, a TV show episode reaction in my livejournal? Who am I? But I typed some stuff as I was rewatching 2x08 on cwtv.com (trying to help boost viewing numbers) and I think this is really the best place to put it vs facebook or tumblr. I honestly don't know if anyone still reading this even watches The 100 or is caught up through the S2 MSF so, you know, feel free to skip, esp if you are Maggie and aren't caught up yet, because spoilers. Uh also if you like Finn you should probably skip. Giant effing spoilers for The 100 2x08 'Spacewalker' (ugh even typing that name makes me mad) )

Okay, all that said though, if you aren't watching The 100 YOU SHOULD BE WATCHING THE 100 because on the whole it's a pretty killer post-apocalyptic funtime teen drama. If you like: 1) post-apocalyptic stuff, 2) kids-on-their-own, 3) team-as-family 4) characters being Team Mom and Dad, you might like this show. S1 is all on Netflix and it's only 13 eps. My recommendation is to watch through the first 4 eps, and by then you'll either know if it's for you or not. Don't stop after the first 2 because 3 and 4 are much better.

YOU GUYS. LUCAS IS BACK. HE'S BACK AND HE WENT STRAIGHT TO SAMI AND THEY'RE TALKING AND BEING HONEST AND BANTERING AND HUGGING AND SAYING THEY LOVE EACH OTHER. IN THE SWEETEST WE'VE-FINALLY-LOOPED-BACK-AROUND-TO-BEING-BEST-FRIENDS-AFTER-ALL-THE-SHIT-WE-PUT-EACH-OTHER-THROUGH WAY.



THIS IS BASICALLY MY REACTION:


(And not because I just chloroformed someone.)

I CAN'T EVEN PROCESS THIS YOU GUYS. I just...it's hard to explain if you've never fallen in love with a soap couple. I've been shipping these characters since 1997. That's literally half my life. It's close to half of *their* lives. Soaps have a lot of issues (shit, I haven't even watched Days regularly since 2004 because I couldn't stand it), but they are unrivaled in the amount of history that can be brought to a single scene, just because their characters have been on for *so long*-- it's amazing.

I honestly thought I had this out of my system. Like I said, I haven't even watched since 2004. But then I watched today's show (and Monday's, since they air a day ahead in Canada and the Canadians are a kind and generous people) and I wanted to hop up and down with how excited and happy and thrilled I was. Seriously, in just these two days, we've gotten more than we used to get in *years.*

So basically, HEARTS. HEARTS IN MY EYES.

Scenes from today's and Monday's shows under the cut, plus screencaps. So technically spoilers for Monday, I guess )

I AM SO LEGIT IN LOVE WITH COMMUNITY YOU GUYS, it's not even funny.

(What I have watched so far: the four episodes that are on Hulu. And a lot of clips. And some picspams.) Uuuuuugggh, why it gotta be at 8 pm on Thursdays?

(I worked 12 hours today and I am fried. Can you tell?)

ETA: Someone needs to go to D*C dressed as the Greendale Human Being. I would scream and run in the other direction, but someone should do it.

Home from Celebration V, which was ~AMAZING.~ I was working the Digital Stage and we had some awesome programming-- now I want to go back and watch Clone Wars, and TFU2 and TOR look amazing even though I don't game, and I got the TFU1 novelization at the 501st party, and WHERE IS THE TFU FIC!? I WANTS IT.

Ohgod so sleepy.

You guys, I think I may need some sort of Disney intervention, because I am watching The Princess and the Frog for the fourth time in as many days and Rogue keeps asking me when we can send it back to Netflix and I keep being like NO! MINE! NO TOUCHY! I can't believe I didn't go to see this in the theater. I should've gone opening night, dressed up like a princess.

(I may or may not also be trying to figure out how I can make one of Charlotte's huge floofy pink dresses such that it fits into my D*C luggage. Charloooooootttte.)

ALSO!!! In unrelated joyfulness, Perri, one of my favorite reccers ever, has new recs up! Dresden Files! Leverage! SG1/Lantis! New Trek! (Did fandom ever agree on how to refer to the new movies?) Crossovers among the above-mentioned! *in fic heaven*

"...I'm on SPEEEEED!"

Yay, we finished House S3 last night! Disc 1 of S4 arrives tonight, hopefully. Must...catch...up!!!

Rogue had a revelation while we were watching last night, and I still can't stop giggling about it: Wilson on speed = Rodney McKay, y/y? Seriously, close your eyes and just listen; it sounds exactly like him. ...okay, this would be way more effective if I could actually find a clip that didn't involve weird music-vid-ness, but trust me. It's awesome.

Also, "Airborne" (the episode, not the fake medicine) still rules my life. ILU, bottle episodes! I even went and found last week's Bones online because it was also an episode set on an airplane, and really, you can't go wrong with those. Any other recs for episodes set on airplanes (or any enclosed space, really)? Doesn't need to be a show I watch.

I really need some new icons.

ETA: Argh, the no-comment-notifications disease has spread to my journal too. Damn you lj!

CURSE YOU [livejournal.com profile] raykel!!! I have so much SDCC sewing to do and now I'm freaking obsessed with Danny Phantom and it is ALL YOUR FAULT. (Finished the series today. Wah.) PLEASE SEND HELP. OR SEMI-DECENT FIC.

On the plus side, it's distracting me from the wait till the ATLA finale, so.

So, Friday's BSG.

Spoilers: I am not terribly cool with... )

The Avatar obsession is growing exponentially. I am beginning to worry a little. Note to self: you do not have to read bad fanfic just because it's there. It's okay to close the window and walk away.
ETA2 that inexplicably comes before ETA: Holy crap, I just busted a gut laughing at this condensed version of "Jet." "If we weren't TV-Y7, this'd totally be a cigarette."

ETA: How did I not hear that Brian Austin Green will be a regular on SCC next season!? YAY OMG DEREK OMG YAY. SHOW US YOUR CRAZY EYES, BAG.

Having fallen *hard* for the Sarah Connor Chronicles (I, er, might have a slight Derek Reese problem. I blame [livejournal.com profile] morwen_peredhil), [livejournal.com profile] sirrogue decided it was high time I actually watched Terminator 2, since I'd never actually seen any of the movies before. So I did.

And here is my reaction:

In San Jose, la, for the next-to-last of my conferences for the time being. Phew. There's a jazz festival going on across the street and it's really *quite* loud.

We saw Stardust again last night and it was just as wonderful the second time 'round, and I picked up on some more costume details. And on Friday night I put on discs 2 and 3 of 10th Kingdom because I needed something fairy-tale-ish so badly. Why aren't there more fairy tales for grownups? I'm craving them, all of a sudden. Anyone got any suggestions besides those two and Princess Bride? (Stardust even has a horrid pop song over the credits like Princess Bride! It's crazy!)

I also read the Stardust novella, which I thoroughly enjoyed. The book and the movie might seem rather different, but really it's just the same story told two different ways. Like if an MTG story was told once, and then you came back five years later and heard Jamez telling it again.

("Butter would not melt in my mouth! Okay, it would melt, of course it would melt, but very slowly.")
