The series finale of Justified was AMAZING!!!! Gotta love a show with a satisfying ending..

and this show certainly had a brilliant sendoff!Collapse )


Shows to look forward to:






*sigh* Arrow is currently on, but I'm hardly watching it. I'm really losing interest in this show and I'm a little bit sad about it. The show just isn't doing it for me anymore.


But I'll have it on simply because it's on right before Supernatural.

YAY! Tonight Season 5 of Game of Thrones begins. Everything you hear about this show is true...it's simply amazing, and one of the best television shows ever produced.

The new Netflix show, Daredevil, was released on Friday, April 10. I've watched 6 of he 13 episodes so far and really like it. I recommend it!!

(There are so few shows on the 'regular' networks that interest me these days. I guess those shows are all too 'tame' for me... LOL!).

as for the rest of my viewing this week..Collapse )

...for a six week event.

I loved this show beyond reason, so I need to let this digest before I comment further.

More shows on my schedule! (I guess it's good some of my shows are nearing the end of their seasons. I really prefer watching shows with 10 - 16 episodes per season these days...).

Can't wait for the final episodes of Mad Men, but will be sad to have this absolutely brilliant show end. Begins April 5.




And on April 4, the second half of season one of Outlander! Total Squee!



And FINALLY! Season five of Game of Thrones begins April 12. SO.CAN'T.WAIT.

Wow! I opened this Livejournal ten years ago today!

And my, how things have changed. Personally, professionally and I've been through a lot of fandom related things. Some have been good, some have been not so good, but it's been an interesting journey nonetheless.

Livejournal certainly isn't the same as it was ten years ago, but I'll still never leave this place.

What is the difference between just *really* loving a tv show versus being obsessed with a tv show?

Discuss.

After work today, I went to the movies...to see Game of Thrones in IMAX.

Yep, went to the movies to watch a tv show that I've already seen.

But....SO...WORTH...IT...

For one week only, the final two episodes of season 4 are being screened in IMAX. (and a preview of season 5, which begins on April 12).

It was FABULOUS. Episode 9, with the battle at the wall...on the HUGE screen...*that* is how it was truly meant to be seen. Definitely a movie quality tv show...

And episode 10, which essentially sets everything up for season five...well...just awesome.

Totally worth skipping the gym and going to the movies on a Monday...when practically no one else was there...

Now to curl up in bed...because...brrr...it's COLD out there!!!...with my latest read.

Oh, and sometime in February (I think) The Amazing Race begins again -- hopefully on Fridays like it did last time.

I had today off work for the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday and I spent part of my day at the movies. I went to see American Sniper (because of Bradley Cooper). The theatre was PACKED (I guess everyone who had off work or school today went to the movies!). Anyway, the movie was good, BC was amazing. So was Sienna Miller. The woman sitting next to me kept covering her eyes and I heard her whisper "ohmygod" several times. Made me wonder why she actually came to see the movie. I knew going in that the brutality and horrors of war would be documented. The only negative thing about the film was that I wish we got to see more of Chris Kyle the man instead of Chris Kyle the soldier. But then perhaps when you are a soldier that *is* who you are. The footage of his actual memorial service in Dallas at the end of the film had me tearing up. Then there was absolutely no music at all during the closing credits. And there was some applause in the audience. Love when people applaud at a movie. I can see why the film is nominated for six Academy Awards. (but I'll be surprised if it wins any).

I haven't made an entry about what I've watched from Netflix in ages! So this list will be long.

maybe I should put it under a cutCollapse )


That's all for now!!!

Over the past 44 days, I have watched ALL 204 episodes of Supernatural that have aired.

It seems once I started I couldn't stop! Even through the not so good episodes, I still muddled through. (even Eric Kripke, who created the show has admitted that some of the episodes were really bad).

This show is SO not what I thought it was. It's so much better. I totally misjudged it. The overall narrative of the show is well thought out, it's not a monster of the week show. It's obvious everyone involved with the show loves working on it.

There are so many things I love about this show, I couldn't possibly list them all. So, I'll just point out a few.

It all boils down to the brotherly dynamic between San and Dean, and how they'd do anything for each other.

I totally ADORE Castiel.

I love how Crowley calls Sam and Dean Moose and Squirrel. (yes, I know what that refers to)

I love the musical aliases Sam and Dean use when they pose as law enforcement. (especially the classic rock artists).

I LOVE LOVE LOVE all the classic rock songs used in the show.

I love that so many of the characters introduced get their own arc and are not forgotten, their storylines get wrapped up one way or another.

The humor in the show is absolutely brilliant. "The French Mistake" episode? No other show on tv would do an episode like that. I also love the episodes with the fans...the books, the convention...

Charlie is one of my favorite recurring characters.

I love all the nerd shout outs. I love even more that I know what they all are.

I think Jensen Ackles should work on a comedy of some sort.

I know there are more...but I'll shut up for now.

And finally, I'm SO EXCITED that I will be able to watch the new episode live tomorrow night.

Rachel's boyfriend's band was on the news! Very cool! They are playing downtown at the Inner Harbor on New Years Eve...so one of the local tv stations did a story on them. Charles isn't really in the video....you only see his arm (he's got the tattoo on his inner left wrist -- he's playing guitar) at the end of the story.

But it's cool to get the publicity. No, I won't be there... not with 50,000 other crazies...and assorted drunken fools...

I couldn't embed the video (no idea why), so here's the link:

Two episode season four premiere tonight. Wow. Just wow.

There were scenes that I know would turn a lot of people away, but for me they were fine given the context. Or maybe I'm just immune to anything that happens on a t v show.

Whatever. Homeland is a great show and I'm sold on season four already.

...yes, it's a great cause, I'm happy so much money has been raised...I don't know...


I had decided to stop watching the videos....until the Foo Fighters posted this:



*THIS* is why I love these guys! They get the award for most creative ice water challenge video.

~~

I've been a bit under the weather for the past few days...I know I told some people I'd make an entry about the convention I went to on Saturday... It was nice, we got done what we planned to do... Maybe I'll still post an entry...I can't decide.
