So, it looks like I've stopped writing episode reaction posts. This was not a conscious decision on my part, more like a confluence of circumstances. Most of my shows are currently engaged in long-term story or character arcs that I actively dislike, while at the same time I've hit an amazing run of really good books in a row. I keep looking at the TV and thinking I should watch my shows, then reading instead. As a result, I'm way behind on many of my shows and uninspired to write about them, but I've completed 80% of my reading goal for the year on Goodreads.

I have no plans to leave LJ; I'll just have to find something else to post about. I also can't swear I'll never do episode posts again, but I just can't dredge up the squee to do them right now.

P.S. -- Where has Listopia been all my life? Gay Romance Featuring Psychics/Mediums/Shamans/Spiritualists was not a thing I knew I needed in my life, but guys, I am reading all the things.

Sorry I'm late. I decided to watch Grimm this week because the trailer promised me the episode would be about something I've been dying to see this season. Unfortunately, the trailer was misleading. Boo.

Okay, I waited a couple of hours to start writing this because this is another episode where I ended up with Very Strong Feelings and I wanted to keep the swearing to a minimum. Seriously, you should see my notes. So much swearing.

This is the cold that never ends
It just goes on and on, my friend...

By the way, I finally made a post about last week's episode here if anybody is still interested.

I'm celebrating the three week anniversary of my cold today. ::throws confetti:: I didn't have any cake, but there was ice cream. Because it makes my throat feel better.

Good grief, I can't believe how much better this season is than the last few have been.

Sorry I'm late. Remember how I was sick last week? Yep, still sick. I'm officially sick of being sick.

Allow me to kick off this TV season with a cold. This entry brought to you by my decongestants. ::wah-CHOO:: ::hack:: ::snuffle::

P.S. -- I'm doing a personal challenge on Tumblr to cross stitch along with my shows this season. I started a Sleepy Hollow pattern on Monday. I don't have a Hawaii Five-0 pattern, so I was working on a Man from UNCLE one, since it's another action-adventure show featuring a brunet and his shorter blond partner. If anybody wants to point me at a Hawaii Five-0 pattern, I'd appreciate it. And if you want to follow along with my fannish cross stitching on Tumblr, I'm over here.

Well, that was a busy episode.

I have this terrible feeling of déjà vu, but I'm not sure why.

Only two episodes left this season, huh? I suspect they may be the last two I ever watch.

You know how I started last episode's post with how I saw Captain America: The Winter Soldier and it was awesome? I'm starting this post the same way because I just saw the movie again for the second time in a week and it's still awesome. Sorry, Steve, but I love another Steve.

I took the day off from work today to go see Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Holy shitballs, that was amazing. I'm trying not to spew spoilers all over the Internet, but none of my friends have seen it yet, so if anybody wants to squee with me, message me here on LJ.

Oh, and I also watched Hawaii Five-0.

Wow, we've barely stopped talking about last week's ep and it's time for a new one already. Fortunately this week's ep was considerably less rage-inducing.

I wish I knew what was going on with this show.

the_other_sandy: Black and white TV (TV)
In case any Supernatural fans are reading this, Show was pre-empted for basketball here in Greater Chicagoland, so I won't get to see the new ep until tomorrow night. I'm avoiding spoilers, so that's why I haven't popped by to squee or complain about the ep as the case may be.

Meanwhile, I'm taking a short break from internet stalking Aidan Turner (he's going to be starring in a new adaptation of Poldark next year!) to post about Five-0.

Hi, Danny! I've missed you!

I still have a head cold. I'm still on all the decongestants ever. Sometimes, if I stand by the humidifier long enough, I can actually breathe through my nose for a minute. Bleah.
