christycorr: Richard Castle (Castle) (*^^*)

All right, so I fail at updating LJ! Damn you, Twitter. I went to a U2 concert in Tampa with [ profile] firstlightofeos and [personal profile] lu a couple of weeks ago, and it was brilliant. I went to New York right after that, where I bought far more DVDs and assorted geekeries than I ought to and ate really, really good Chinese takeout. I totally fell in love with the city. ♥ And I bought a new MacBook Pro! It is gorgeous. I've just finished setting her up to my satisfaction today. Her name is River. (After River Tam, obviously, not River Song. And damn you for even considering that possibility, [personal profile] oxymora.)

TV-related rambling ahead! But first, tell me something. [LJ poll]

As it turns out, plane trips are really useful when it comes to catching up with TV shows. I've finally watched Glee; I don't exactly adore it quite as much as everyone else on the planet, but it's all right. I'm excited that Joss Whedon will direct an episode! That ought to be brilliant.

(And speaking of Joss—Jesus Christ, yesterday's Dollhouse was quite a punch in the gut. "Yes, you're not the only ones who can see the morals at stake here. No, we're not scared to go to a really muddled place where absolutely no one knows exactly what right and wrong are anymore." So yay for that! Definitely the best ep of the season so far. But then again, no more Dollhouse until December, which is sad. Damned crappy ratings.)

Oh, Merlin. Merlin, Merlin, Merlin. I don't know wtf to think about you anymore. *laughs* (No shipper rage here, don't worry.) I adore Bradley James, and his faces are hands down my favourite thing about this series, but Anthony Stewart Head does the besotted idiot thing even better than him. ♥

Three TV shows I'm watching and enjoying—with download links, because everyone knows I'm a pimp at heart:
  • Castle: Nathan Fillion playing the part of a Fillion-y mystery writer who helps solve crimes; what's not to love? I'm enjoying season 2 even more than I did season 1, and I'm happily waiting for my copy of Richard Castle's Heat Wave to arrive. Here's a YouTube promo featuring Fillion being awesome and geeky. Download the Castle pilot in .avi format here.

  • FlashForward: the premise is interesting—the entire world blanked out for 2 minutes and 17 seconds, causing massive casualties, and during that time everyone caught a glimpse of what their lives would be like six months from now. The main character saw himself investigating the blackouts, so he begins investigating; it's all very wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey. Also: there's John Cho! And Jack Davenport! YouTube promo link. Download the FlashForward pilot in .avi format here. (Hulu link.)

  • White Collar: I was excited to see Chuck's Matthew Bomer (Bryce Larkin) in a new show; it just premiered two days ago, and it didn't disappoint. [Incidentally, if you aren't watching Chuck, why the hell aren't you watching Chuck?] Bomer plays a con artist who helps investigate white collar crimes to keep himself out of jail, à la Catch Me If You Can. It's entertaining! Check out the YouTube promo, and download the first episode here in .avi format (or watch on Hulu).

  • I'm also watching, with varying degrees of dedication, enthusiasm and caught-up-ness: Dexter, Fringe, Heroes, How I Met Your Mother, Lie to Me, Numb3rs, Criminal Minds, Stargate: Universe, Supernatural and The Mentalist. I have a terrible case of television ADD—I rarely remember/want to watch shows' new episodes every week—so everything always piles up. *guilty look at Heroes, Criminal Minds and Fringe* *headdesk*

    He so does. I couldn't stop snickering whenever there was one of his scenes. I was also rather glad that we got more Merlin in this ep, and that he actually got to do things.

    Maybe the pile of rocks was cursed? That's how I understood it.

    IDK what to think about Merlin these days, either. But it's gotten better, right? RIGHT?
