You know what I haven't talked about in a long time? TV. Which is hilarious considering how much of it I'm still watching. Like I'd ever give up on TV. Looooooooool.

Chuck )

V )

So many other exciting TV in my life. Castle has been slowly worming it's way into my heart of late--surprising perhaps because even though I've been watching it for two years now, I've really started to notice just how consistently enjoyable and fun it is. Every episode ends with me smiling like a fool. And there's not a single character I don't like. And so excited for next week. SO EXCITED!

And finally speaking of excited--OH MY GOOD GOLLY GOD FRINGE IS FINALLY COMING BACK TO ME ON FRIDAY IT HAS BEEN FAR TOO LONG WITHOUT MY BB OLIVIA AND LORD ALMIGHTY I HOPE IT DOES WELL WITH IT'S NEW FRIDAY SLOT. I CANNOT THINK OF A UNIVERSE WITHOUT IT NOW. I AM TOO FAR GONE.
hjea: (chuck-make out session)
Although anything after last week's episode was going to be a let-down, I still feel I must say: Chuck? I am disappoint. You made an episode with Linda Hamilton and TIMOTHY DALTON... boring. Impressive.

Granted, it is comforting to know that Awesome will still always be awesome without fail.

BUT LET'S TALK ABOUT FRINGE BECAUSE I HAVEN'T DONE THAT IN ABOUT (well... maybe ten minutes out here in the real world. tops) A WEEK ON THIS HERE LJ.



*HYPERVENTILATES*

THURSDAY. ME. GIBBERING MESS. BE THERE.

(Also how much is everyone loving Anna Torv and that goat?)
hjea: (chuck-a spy and her nerd)
SO I JUST FINISHED THIS WEEK'S CHUCK AND OH MY. YVONNE STRAHOVSKI. I LOVE YOU. LOOOOOOOVE YOU.

*FLAILS LIKE A MASSIVE FLAILY GEEK*

WITHOUT GETTING SPOILERY, DID I ACTUALLY JUST GET TO WATCH AN HOUR OF SARAH WALKER KICKING ASS AND ALSO HAVING FEELINGS ALL OVER THE PLACE? BECAUSE IF ANYTHING ELSE HAPPENED IN THE EPISODE I'M NOT SURE I SAW IT.

Also I lied. Let's get spoilery. )

I REALLY REALLY LOVE HER.

And the gifs come out to play... )
hjea: (chuck-don't breathe)
The not-finale Chuck vs The Other Guy )

And I suppose now back to the real world and this $&%$@%E^ paper I have due Friday. At this point, I think making a fort out of all the library books I have piled around my desk right now would be a much better use of my time.

ETA: Now in the true spirit of pics or it didn't happen... )
hjea: (misc-hop on board the squee!train)
OMG CHUCK! CHUCK, CHUCK, CHUCK!

*FLAILY HAPPY NERDY DANCE*

Won't say any more about tonight's ep because I am apparently too giddy with geeker joy to bother with a cut, but THANK YOU, SHOW.


Yes, a pic wholly unrelated to this season let along this episode, but c'mon, you can't not love them here.


(Okay, one thing I will say: ELLIE BARTOWSKI. For a character who's been seriously underused this season, she still manages to kick storyline butt in every two second scene she gets. :D)
hjea: (chuck-group hug of awesome)
WHEE, TIME TO TALK ABOUT THIS WEEK'S EPISODE OF CHUCK!



Or perhaps as is more appropriate for today, ~The Casey Show~ )
hjea: (chuck-a spy and her nerd)
I'm going to take this opportunity to talk about Chuck. Because I have a MASSIVE AMOUNT OF LOVE for this spy-dramedy-fest, and I really do not talk about it much. (Usually because my reactions to an episode are delighted giggling. I'm an adult. Shut it.) But now I AM going to talk about Chuck, and it's going to be totally awesome. Or at least mildly amusing. Well... I added pictures.

Spoilers for Chuck - 3x08 - Chuck vs the Fake Name )
hjea: (chuck-make out session)
This is mainly for the sister's benefit, but in the unlikely event that anyone else is wildly curious about the contents of my wardrobe:


NEW BOOTS!


Something about the combination of a sale, last pair in the store, and they just so happen to fit clearly makes me a rabid materialistic consumer. Yay! ;DDD

Also, [livejournal.com profile] janie_jones_ clued me into the AWESOME fact that Chuck airs on Sunday nights here this season instead of on Mondays. HECK YES, CANADA. But way to chip little bits of my heart away, show. *tears*

Without getting into spoilers, I see similarities between Chuck's storyline this season, and what John Crichton was going through in Farscape. (Hear me out) They both started as these bright, but very innocent guys, and through their journeys in space/spy life, they've had to toughen up and tarnish their souls a bit. And it's necessary to survive, but that doesn't mean it doesn't hurt to watch it happen. *siiighs* OH CHUCK. &hearts &hearts &hearts

(And hey, also this applies to Richard! And um... this is a really common hero trope thing isn't it? Shh.)
hjea: (chuck-group hug of awesome)
Okay. This might be my favourite Chuck(/Winter Olympics/Honda) commercial to date. :D

hjea: (chuck-group hug of awesome)
Hey, you guys remember that (totally awesome) little show called Chuck? WE HAVE AN AIRDATE, JANUARY 10th, BOOYAH!!!!!!!

Aaaaaaand here's a preview:


CHUUUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK &hearts &hearts &hearts
hjea: (chuck-a spy and her nerd)
Chuuuuuuuuuck! Season two finale flails )

Started a Buffy marathon with first timer [livejournal.com profile] xtinethepirate a couple days ago. We just began season two tonight (what?--season one is short), but I've quickly cottoned on to the fact that this is turning into Squee Over Giles Time (and Spike, yes Xtine). But it's also a fantastic form of nostalgia, and fun, and great showrunning, and despite the ridiculous clothes, Buffy holds up well. I wonder if Joss knew what he was doing when that tiny blonde first took a turn down that alley... and the monsters ran the other way. I'd like to think so.

And I haven't seen tonight's A2A yet! Eep, must go acquire that.

(And just to prove that my life isn't completely tv: ALL BUT FOR GRADUATION, I AM DONE MY UNDERGRAD! *CONFETTIS* I'M SURE IT'S GOING TO SINK IN ANY DAY NOW.)
hjea: (chuck-make out session)
AKA well, I haven't really gotten out of bed yet, so this can't *technically* count as cutting into my studying time, right?

Chuck - "Chuck vs. the Colonel" was pretty epic this week. Okay, MAJORLY (colonelly?) EPIC. Here, let me show you )

And what up, Ashes to Ashes? IT IS SO BRILLIANT TO HAVE YOU BACK! Because you're soooo pretty )

Now what's next on the procrastinating list?
hjea: (chuck-group hug of awesome)
Ahhh, so much real life happenings! It's so distracting! I just got back from a job interview at Pier 21 (CANADA'S IMMIGRATION MUSEUM - the caps are apparently very necessary) which went well I think, so hopefully the summer job thing will be taken care of. I've been out two nights in a row which is ca-razy for me, but what with school drawing to a close and everyone off in all different directions (*sniff*) 'tis the season for partying. I've also got two exams later this week that need studying at some point, the sister is coming down to visit on Friday, a friend of my parents really wants me to fill out an application for Massey College for U of T-bound me so we'll see how that goes, and oh yeah, IT IS GORGEOUS OUT, SUNNY AND WARM, AND I WANT TO RUN SINGING THROUGH A FIELD SOMEWHERE. :DDD

*breathes*

And of course there's always the TV in my life. Tonight's episode of Chuck looks hyperventilatingly good (pleasedontgetcancelledpleasedontgetcancelledpleasedontgetcancelled), ASHES TO ASHES IS BACK, and, most importantly, [livejournal.com profile] sword_of_lies's Desperately Seeking Seeker Kink Ficathon is is full swing, and I have to post at some point because nekkid Richard and Kahlan make my world go round.

How's everyone else doing?
hjea: (lots-nap time in seekerville)
I'm posting those spoilery pics from the upcoming Legend of the Seeker - 118 - Mirror episode, BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN STARING FOR HOURS, AND IT'S AWESOME. Originally posted here.

SPOILERS! )




And while I'm at it, just a few spoilery Chuck thoughts: For 2x20 and 2x21 Preview )

ETA: Now with added Preview pics! More Chuck spoilers )
hjea: (hp-i am a gryffindor! grr.)
[Error: unknown template qotd]

In the immortal words of someone else: Fuck this, I'm going to Hogwarts.

And apropos of nothing: Agent Cylon! Apparently Tricia Helfer is going to be on Chuck sometime this year. AND SHE'S SO CUTE AND EXCITED ABOUT KILLING PEOPLE.

ADAM BALDWIN: She's tall. She's beautiful. She's smart.
TRICIA: Yeah, I payed him to say that.


Oh, sweetie. No you didn't. ;)

24 icons

hjea: (a2a-alex hopes you're happy)
I last posted icons in September. Wow. Maybe my other resolution should be to make more icons. Or do more fandom things in general. Because I really need to talk about television more than I already do. ;)

[1-4] Ashes to Ashes
[5-6] Chuck
[7-9] Little Dorrit
[10-13] Pushing Daisies
[14-17] Supernatural
[18-22] The Office
[23-24] Wonderfalls


More here )

Toronto is rainy and vaguely warmish, so pretty much like Halifax. I'm driving to Ottawa tomorrow with my cousin (we'll be there for about an hour, see my friend, pick up my other cousin and the baby, and then drive back, oy gevalt) so I hope that I'll at least get to glimpse snow there! But there's still 10 days until Christmas, so I'm optimistic that some fluffy white stuff will show up before then. This is the only time of year I'm partial towards snow, winter! Don't disappoint me now.

You remember how nearly a year ago now, the Robin Hood writers decided to be "shocking" and kill off Marian? Yeah. Well, every time I feel I've pretty much come to terms with it, I let myself go and watch old episodes, and read fic, and then get really irrationally upset again. IT WAS SO GOOD (especially all the fic). AND IT WAS FUN. AND REALLY, REALLY ROMANTIC AND HOT AND LOVELY (cuz have you seen Jonas and Lucy?) AND THEN THEY RUINED IT. AND I STILL DON'T KNOW WHYYYYYYYYYYYY.

And now it's got me wondering if it's why I'm so reluctant to watch Merlin. Because I've been burned by cheesy, horribly anachronistic, retellings of British legends before, and oh yes, they start all sweet and innocent and we-would-never-do-anything-see-how-fun-and-non-serious-we-are-here-have-a-unicorn AND THEN THEY BREAK YOUR HEART. (Not to scare off any Merlin fans, I really hope you keep enjoying it. And I'm sure the BBC would never take another something silly and fun and effervescent and then... You know this totally doesn't work 'cause y'all are Who fans too. YOU KNOW HOW IT IS. BE PREPARED.)

So Robin Hood heartbreak still in place? Check. Tried to turn to Life on Mars for a balm, but then of course you have the Ashes to Ashes Spoilers ).

So I could turn to American television, except The Office has been kind of disappointing of late, and Chuck is sweet and fun but nothing too substantial and Pushing Daisies is WONDERFUL and is better and better with each episode but I can't watch it now without constantly reminding myself that its expiry date is completely un-cheeto like and is instead fast-approaching.

SO... Robin Hood breaks my heart, Life on Mars just makes me wibbly, American tv is a wash, Slings and Arrows is over and done so let's not get into the Canadian options, and REALLY IS IT ANY WONDER I CONSTANTLY CYCLE BACK TO MINISERIES AND YES THAT MEANS OH, MR. CLENHAM, I MISS YOUUUUUUUUUUUUU! Yeah that whole "I'm not going to talk about Little Dorrit anymore after it finishes" was a total lie.

The obvious solution would be to give up on tv all together but... pfft. Like that's going to happen. ;) No, I'll just read more fic, and watch Robin/Marian scenes of awesome super-spyness, and remember that when it was good, it was good.

(And fervently hope that Jonas and Lucy have future projects together, with 100% more hot make-outs and 100% less stupid death. *G*)
hjea: (office-jim loves you)
It's been AWHILE since I cleared out and posted some icons. Of course... there may be a very good reason for that.

100x100 sized fun )

THE OFFICE AIRS IN 24 HOURS. HOLD ME.
hjea: (chuck-a spy and her nerd)
The first episode of Chuck's season two is up a week early on Hulu now. Yay. I love a little sexy spy comedy. And besides being still funny and sweet and really, really cool, there was one part of the new episode that really stuck out for me.

Chuck vs. The First Date )

Of course, now that I've watched this episode early, I'm going to have to wait two weeks for the next episode to air. And patience is not my virtue. Darn.
