Okay, so the basic premise of the new Gotham tv-show sounds like endless foreplay with no pay-off, but they're doing teenage Catwoman.

How do I not watch that?

I never really got into New Girl, largely because I couldn't connect with Jessica Day and Nick Miller as a romantic lead left me cold, but damn, sometimes Jess just has her priorities in order.

So, these two gif sets convinced me to give Helix a try.

I just watched the first ten minutes, and I just have to say, if I worked at the CDC -or was in a position to be in an important meeting at the CDC- and some asshole opened the meeting by using John Snow and the Broad Street pump handle as a rhetorical device, I'd punch him in the face for being a patronizing dick.

Okay, media update time.

In the area of books, I just finished Marissa Meyer's Cinder, which I loved. It’s a fantastic sci-fi retelling of Cinderella and it ends on a cliff-hanger that made me interested enough in the rest of the series to splurge and get the next two books from B&N.

I watched the first ten minutes of the most recent episode of SHIELDwe love our acronyms )

I loved this week's Brooklyn Nine-Nine.this is a den of liars )

Arrow was actually pretty boring this week, imho.where ever i go, I'm just answering phones )

I read Hawkeye 15, which was SO overhyped, imho.he's just a shape )

On the subject of awesome queer ladies, I just watched the second episode of Bomb Girls. (My goal is to get caught up before the movie airs at the end of March.if you can pour tea, you can pour amatol )

I have lost the original comment, but someone was feeling demoralized about the lady of queer ladies on her screen, so I wanted mention that YOU NEVER HAVE TO ACCEPT LACK OF QUEER LADIES (OR DUDES) ON YOUR SCREEN, and also through out some queer lady recs:

Bomb Girls (two of the four main characters are lesbians)

Orphan Black (a reoccurring character is a lesbian, and she actually gets a really interesting romance)

This post with a fuckton of movies with lesbians.

The Arrow episode Heir of the Demon (with a couple quibbles).

Chicago Fire has a main character who is a lesbian.

I’d check out the Adventure Time episodes with Marceline The Vampire Queen and Princess Bubblegum (uncanon, but only because the network wouldn’t let the show go there).

There is also 2 Broke Girls, which skews more towards the 'queer-bait' end of the spectrum, but has some really slashy moments between the leads.

I watched That Episode of Peaky Blinders last night - you know, the episode wherethe two romantic leads commit a double homicide together and then stare at each other and embrace, each knowing the other has seen the darkness and violence instead of them and didn't turn away, and then later they had insanely characterization-appropriate (and hot) sex.Now I'm afraid to finish up the season, because I know it's going to all end so badly.

This gif-set convinced me to put Reign on my to-watch list, as soon as I finish Nikita.

A question for the floor: I want to hear about your fannish final straws.

For example, the Bucky Barnes name-drop was what prompted me to unfollow a couple SHIELD-heavy blogs and blacklist the more specific versions of the show name**.

If you can remember, please tell me about the specific things that made you quit and/or start to blacklist a show.

**Or at least, I tried. Until I realized that pretty much every variant of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D that people actually use tumblr-saviored a bunch of posts I wanted to see,especially now that Sif is going to be in an episode, which, needless to say, I am actually kind of bummed about.

[+] So... has LJ been withholding comments for anyone else? Just me then.

[+] I am so sad that I have to go to work tomorrow. Luckily just for two days and then I have the 1st off.

[+] I have about a billion tabs of fanfic open.

[+] Since everything is one hiatus, here is my to-watch list of media:

  • Finish the last couple of episodes of season one of Arrow

  • finish watching Nikita (I'm about half-way through the series

  • re-watch season one/watch the rest of Being Human (UK)

  • Plus


[+] I'd like to see Frozen and The Book Thief

[+] I need to go through my folders of random media and figure out what I actually want to watch.

You know the face. The face you make (and if you're me, the bonus, OUT-LOUD "what?") when some one sorts characters into Hogwarts Houses and gets it SO WRONG.

(Simmons in Gryffindor and Skye in Ravenclaw is 100% WRONG.)

(I mean, MAYBE I could see Simmons in Gryffindor but Skye in Ravenclaw? Hell to the no.)

You know, all the Ward x Simmons fanfics I have been reading has made me MUCH more kindly disposed towards the show.

WHY HAS FANDOM NOT WRITTEN A ZILLION SEXYTIME FICS FOR JANE/ROCHESTER FROM THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF JANE EYRE? AM I GOING TO HAVE TO WRITE THEM MYSELF?

I skipped ahead a bit, before committing to watching this webseries, so I saw the more recent videos where Rochester and Jane are being, you know, epically cute together, and then I went back to the beginning and last night I got to this episode:



And HOLY FUCK, HIS SHIRTSLEEVES ARE ROLLED HALF-UP AND HIS TIE IS UNDONE AND HIS TOP BUTTONS ARE UNBUTTONED AND I DIDN'T EVEN NOTICE UNTIL THE SECOND VIEWING BECAUSE I WAS TOO BUSY STARING AT HIS LEFT FOREARM AND THAT HALF-OBSCURED TATTOO.

When I see people watching (and being frustrated and/or enraged by) shows that I quit watching or chose not to watch after trying an episode or two, I feel so smug and vindicated.

EVEN THOUGH, I have no room to talk, as I have dragged myself through shows I really, really should have quit earlier.

Does this happen to anyone else?

TOTALLY DIFFERENT TOPIC, now that the 50th’s Anniversary of Doctor Who is over, can people on tumblr start tagging Who-posts like sane individuals again?

Due to gif-sets, I just realized that the guy who plays Slade (Manu Bennet) was also in Spartacus...AND IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY, WE GET TO SEE HIS COCK.

I'M GOING GO CHECK ON THAT, FOR REASONS.

Okay, I need to modify my recommendation of Peaky Blinders. There is a scene in the third episode(main character puts a female character in a position where she's likely to be raped for his economic advantage and then his conscience doesn't allow him to go through with it)which made me feel the need to throw up a warning flag to any of my flist who might be considering watching the show.
