I've been going through the Dreamwidth posts that I imported from LJ looking for import fails (any video I embedded in LJ didn't survive the move to Dreamwidth is one issue I've found), and it's been fun reading some old episode discussions. It's also been fun reading my predictions on how a story arc would go to see how right or wrong I turned out to be. Then tonight I found this in a reaction post I wrote for the Supernatural ep "Hammer of the Gods":

Matt Frewer as Pestilence? You have no idea how happy this makes me! The only Canadian actors I have left on my wish list now are Nicholas Lea, Chris Potter, and Gordon Michael Woolvett. Every other Canadian actor I've ever wanted to see on the show has already appeared.


I wrote this as a joke on April 22, 2010. It took a few more seasons, but I did get Nicholas Lea and Gord (twice!). Supernatural has been renewed for another season. Can we get Chris Potter's agent on the phone?

I may not be posting Supernatural episode reviews anymore, but I haven't forgotten about the show or Chibi Dean. He's finally finished!



He's looking a little blue because it's very overcast today.

The backstitching on Dean was even more of a nightmare than it was on Sam. At least Sam had a white shirt and a tan jacket. Backstitching in black on dark grey and darker grey was giving me fits. Ultimately I wound up cranking up my lamp as bright as it would go, using my LED headlamp, and using my 10X lighted magnifier while wearing my glasses all at the same time to try to see what I was doing.

Only one more project in this series and then I never have to use this horrible, horrible fabric ever again.

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.

Oh, Illinois. It's so cute how you have to bust out the team news coverage for a lead story about a 2.9 magnitude earthquake that did no damage, caused no injuries, and that most people didn't even notice. California we are not.

I'm pretty sure I've complained about this multiple times before, but why are family portraits on TV so badly Photoshopped? Seriously, I see more realistic manips done by fans on LJ and Tumblr every day.

Has LJ been extra slow for anybody else lately? Seriously, it's been like being on dial-up again.

I should stop watching Justified right after Supernatural. It kills the momentum that usually sends me straight to my keyboard.

WGN has the worst timing. Season finale? Preempt it. Game changing episode? Preempt it. Return from hiatus? Preempt it. And they used to at least run the preempted episodes sometime on Saturday when I would be awake to watch them. Now they run them very late on the same night, which I can't stay up to watch because I have to be at work at 7:30 a.m.

And now for the grand unveiling. I finished Sammy!

I already have the supplies I need to make Dean, so I'll be starting on him next episode.

That was an unfortunate choice of title...

Fluffity fluff fluff fluff.

I think this episode should win some kind of award for having a plot that least resembled what the trailer implied it would be about.

I always feel bad for any episode that follows a truly stellar one like last week's. There's no way it can't suffer by comparison.

Dear Hawaii Five-0,

This is how you do a milestone episode "for the fans." Please take note for future reference.

Love,

Sandy (no, the other one)

Whatever happened to 'show, don't tell'?

I wish they would stop giving pivotal episodes to Brad Buckner and Eugenie Ross-Leming.

My cross stitch project is going very slowly. Remind me never to work on linen again.

Once again the Supernatural season finale was preempted for baseball because of course it was. It doesn't even matter which night it's on, because it was preempted in previous seasons when it was on on different nights.
