There are no words to describe how incomplete my life is every moment I do not own this:



Yes, Paul and George are slightly terrifying and yes, there is a random crocodile, but look at it! It bleeds awesome. It has a crocodile for no apparent reason!

I've actually been watching episodes of the old cartoon on YouTube... man that's a special type of awesome. Every episode consists of at least one of them getting into trouble and the others doing absolutely nothing whatsoever to help because they're too busy standing around singing.

Like the Money episode... they get paid and John decides to put the money in Ringo's pocket and sew it closed for safe-keeping. They go to a carnival thing and Ringo gets chased around by some guy in a mask while John and Paul just stand around and sing. Ringo ends up on the carousel and the money ends up flying out of his pocket. In the end it's revealed that the guy in the mask was George and when Ringo is all "oh no I lost the money!" they're all "silly Ringo, we'd never trust you with real money! it was fake!"

Then there's the Help! episode which involves Paul chasing down some French guy who is stealing fashion designs and they end up on the Eiffel Tower... Paul is falling off the Eiffel Tower so the other three stay on the ground and sing.

And it goes on from there... random Japanese ponds that shrink people, dancing bears obsessed with Paul, elephants obsessed with Paul, forced marriages and pineapple canneries, beautiful aliens, ruining the lives of everyone on Penny Lane, making wine with music, Robin Hood... it's amazing and I weep because it'll probably never be released on DVD.

Also not gonna lie... Ringo is the best part (as usual when it comes to things like this.)

New TV season!!!!

Community - I haven't seen last night's episode, but I did love the pilot. What can I say? I love Joel McHale.

Modern Family - Funniest new series. I don't even know how many times I laughed at this. I really need to see it again cause I know I missed some jokes.

Cougar Town - I wasn't gonna watch this one, but I decided to go ahead and round out the hour with ABC and I must say I was surprised. I do enjoy Courtney Cox so I imagine that helped, but Busy Phillipps and the kid playing Cox's son were the best parts.

Flash Forward - Hello sexytimes. The entire pilot was like sexy sexytimes. Joseph Fiennes and John Cho walking around all srs faced and injured and then the epic Jack Davenport tease! Curse you, ABC!

House - I thought the premiere was pretty darn good. Hugh Laurie did an awesome job and had a massive =D on my face during Wilson's scene. Didn't care much for the "romance" subplot. The spoilers for upcoming episodes have me more excited though. (So much Wilson goodness coming.) Though I must say I'm still over the whole Huddy thing and I honestly remain unaffected by the announcement that Jennifer Morrison is leaving. (There will be hell to pay if RSL ever decides to leave though.)

So I finished season one of True Blood and I decided to make a list of what I felt was good and bad about it.

Good - Bill. He feels a bit... vanilla in the books (keep in mind I'm still in the midst of the 3rd book), but I feel he comes off a lot better in the series. Or maybe I was just won over by the golf.
Bad - Tara and all her drama. I really hope she comes off better next season because I don't know how much more of that I can take.
Good - Good expansion of existing side characters. Specifically Lafayette and Terry Bellfleur.
Middle - Jessica. I was pretty much expecting to hate her guts based on what I knew about how she came about, but I actually kind of like what little we saw of her. I'll have to wait and see what's in store for her next season.
Middle - Jason's expansion. One the one hand I like some of what they did with him, but on the other I really don't like some of what they did with him. He is still mighty pretty though.
Good - Theme song. It's awesome.
Bad - The part in the opening credits with the dead fox creeps me straight the fuck out.
Good - Eric.
Bad - Giving Eric's one real moment to Bill.
Awesome - Pam. Are there people who don't like Pam? If so, what's their damage?

I feel pretty positive about it over all though. Now on to season two...

Leverage - I marathoned this via Netflix's instant watch thing... TV show shouldn't be this fun. =D Fun characters, people getting what they deserve, Gina Bellman... all TV shows should be this fun. It also helps that every episode involves Christian Kane hitting people which seems to vastly improve my day.

True Blood - I've made it through two episodes so far and while I have some issues I think I'll keep going. The accents are pretty horrible. Anna Paquin still can't act her way out of a paper bag. Bill and Sookie are still a snoozefest. But the guy who is playing Jason is oh-so-pretty and frequently naked. That's more than enough for me. Plus there's Eric who I still haven't gotten to yet. I really don't care for Tara in the series. Maybe I misread the handful of scenes she had in second and third books (or maybe it's something that comes up later in the series), but why is she such a bitch to everyone? Or maybe it's that grating accent that just makes it seem worse. I don't know, but it's old already. I do like what they did with Lafayette though. He was such a non-character in the first book and very not good things happened to him in the second, but I like what they've done with his expansion.

I think my biggest disappointment comes from scanning the cast list on IMDb and seeing that they've seem to cut two of my favorite side characters - Bubba and JB. How they can they cut out the King? And we need JB just so there can be more hot guys running around. =(

Torchwood: Children of Earth - I don't know if I liked this or not. I really don't. On the one hand... the mini-series format works so much better than their usual formula, but on the other hand... lots of NO.

Being Human - What's this? A series about vampires/werewolves where I don't have the overwhelming urge to light someone on fire? (Well okay I kinda wanna light Lauren on fire, but still...) Everyone should be watching this... if only for George.

Watchmen - So what exactly was the point of changing the ending, again? I know part of it had to have been "well that's kind of stupid" but the movie ending was just as stupid. I must say that I did quite enjoy the guy who played Rorschach. I also quite enjoyed Patrick Wilson as Dan. I didn't think he was gonna work, but he did for me. (Zac Synder can take his stupid slo-mo uber-violence and DIAF though.)

Comic-con - Why is this the year that everyone awesome decided to go to Comic-con?! Super excited to hear that the Iron Man 2 footage went over well. I'm also excited to hear that Marvel is gonna chill out on the massive crossover events (which still sounds like "we're trying to fix everything before The Avengers comes out.) Not as excited to hear that Pym/Ant-Man doesn't seem to be part of it though. The Iron Man anime teaser looked awesome while the Wolverine one looked not as awesome. Marvel's new cartoon project has an awesome cast (and involved Hawkeye! Yay Hawkeye!) but I can't help but wish they were doing an animated version of Mini-Marvels instead.

I don't quite know how I feel about Dominic Monaghan joining the cast of Flashforward, but do know that I'm super excited to have John Cho and Jack Davenport on my TV every week.

Also Legion can be the shittiest movie in all of existence for all I care... I saw the poster and I'm completely sold.

Also also... call me crazy, but I kinda like the 11th Doctor's outfit. It's quite spiffy.

Royal Pains was surprisingly fun. I really enjoy Paulo Costanzo for some reason. Divya was the best character though. She's cute and smart. I don't know if it can keep my interested in the long run though.

I also caught the first episode of Nurse Jackie, Showtime's new series. It was running on The 101 (DirecTV's channel) and I needed to fill time. I don't know exactly how I feel about it. I did have a nice smirk on my face regarding the end of the episode though. It also contained surprise Peter Facinelli (who I love and totally forgive for being in Twilight. He's got three daughters. I get it.) He wasn't blonde and was kind of adorable even though he was playing a bit of an ass.

Also The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien needs a mention. I was so worried that he'd dial it back a little too much and lose some of his goofy charm, but he didn't. Even the theme song is still there. I'm so over the moon. It's wonderful. (Also go Joel McHale for being a first week guest. Awesome.)

Not only is Project Runway finally coming back on August 1st... but Tim Gunn is going to be in a comic book. And it will be awesome.
"But what would the angels be without someone to guide them? Enter Tim Gunn of “Project Runway.” In the debut issue’s second story, Mr. Gunn becomes an action figure — jumping into Iron Man’s suit of armor to save a fashion exhibition from evildoers."

Iron Gunn? Greatest thing ever? Y/Y?

I spent part of last night and today watching So NoTORIous. I was not expecting to enjoy this as much as I did. I mostly came for Sylar as the GBFF, but I'll be damned if I didn't get a kick out of something in every episodes. VH1 needs to cancel some Flava/Rock of STDs and bring this shit back. I don't care if Tori Spelling is married with children now.

Also grr what the hell Amano? I don't want to go back to watching the fairly crap Reborn! anime for the Arcobaleno stuff. That should be in the manga, but we're too busy playing King of All Cosmos and junk. >=(

Ten days till The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien and I'm so crazy ready. I've missed that man so much.

I totally forgot about watching this last night, but thankfully Hulu saves my ass (yet again).

It's kind of crazy how much I loved this pilot. I had a giant smile on my face the entire time and honestly... I kinda teared up at the end. *loser* It's slightly bizarre though what with the dark humor mixed in with the "HAPPY YAY" stuff. Needless to say I will be watching in the fall.



In other news... two more days of school left this year! Whoo! I "helped" put up the calendar for next month. It looks so... thrown together by five year olds, but I don't care. I managed to put it up without injuring myself.

Speaking of... in addition to Monday's injuries I sliced my thumb with my own fingernail while trying to open a box of tea and then burned the exact same spot trying to drain the water off some pasta. And tonight I burned my arm on the cookie sheet trying to shake some fries off it. So not my week.

Oh... 30 Rock Progress: Season 1, Episode 4
queendork56: (Default)
The great Catch Up On The Good TV I've Been Missing fest of 2009 is now officially starting. First up I'm gonna go with Mad Men and 30 Rock.

I've been interested in Mad Men for quite a while now, but for some reason I've been putting it off. I mean it has massive positive reviews and the extreme sexiness of Jon Hamm... but still I drag my feet. I think the big reason is because it's such a straight up drama. I caught the first episode back in December and really enjoyed it. Don is quite an interesting character (and also totally dreamy) and I was surprised by how much I liked Peggy. I want to be caught up by the time season 3 starts so I can watch it week by week.

I've also been meaning to catch up on 30 Rock for two years now. I figure pairing a series that I know is funny (at least from what I've seen of it) with the straight up drama of Mad Men will give me a nice balance and hopefully keep me interested in both. (Plus it also has Jon Hamm...)

After that I need to catch up on Supernatural, True Blood, and this season of How I Met Your Mother. I'd also like to restart Desperate Housewives since it really is a great guilty pleasure. I'd like to see Gossip Girl but I dunno...

So basically...
Now: Mad Men & 30 Rock
Then: Supernatural & How I Met Your Mother
Later: True Blood

So it's been a while since I did a proper update so I'm gonna try and hit the high points...

School: Finally started using MediSoft in Medical Office Procedures. It's not as bad as I was expecting, but I still haven't hit the simulations yet so that could change. Competency testing for us is this coming Wednesday. Class trip to the OKC Omniplex/science museum is on April 28th. I also finally enrolled for next year and hopefully I'll get to be a full time student this time.

Movies: Finally saw Twilight... Peter Facinelli as a blonde is just so wrong. I find it kind of funny that I saw two movies in less than a week where the best part involved a Muse song. Also I will not lie... I saw The Day the Earth Stood Still for Jon Hamm and Jon Hamm only. I honestly couldn't tell you much that happened when he was on screen. The scruff was super hot.

Books: I bought the next three Sookie Stackhouse books (Living Dead in Dallas, Club Dead, and Dead to the World). I'm almost finished with the second Night Angel book. So good. I love a series where I can actually end up liking characters I once despised. Vi has gone from "snoozefest" to "how wonderfully bitchy". Also I must stop myself from shipping Kylar and Vi since I know he won't end up with her. I also bought Confessions of a Shopaholic couple of weeks ago.

Television: Stupid Kal Penn liking stupid politics. This season of House has been so... all over the place. There's only a handful of episodes left and while I'm really not looking forward to yet another "omg Cameron is like totally in love with House!" thing or a "House could have been super happy with [insert female character here], but he pushed her away because he's a miserable wreck" thing we all know he can only be happy with Wilson, I am interested in seeing what they do for the finale. (Hopefully there will be Wilson goodness.)

I also gutted and restuffed my section of our Netflix with all the TV I've been putting off watching. I'm working through Jeeves and Wooster right now (I finished season one. I'm once again totally smitten with both Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry.) and then it's on to Mad Men and Supernatural.

Video Games Persona: I'm in October with Persona 3. It is such fucking bullshit that you only get the best character for a month. I'll miss his badassness and the completely awesome way he used his Evoker. I still don't know how I'm going to manage The Answer side of P3 since it's equivalent to the hard version of The Journey. I expected epic fail from me though.

Manga: I'm still not caught up on Fullmetal Alchemist or One Piece. I am caught up on Reborn! though and I must say I'm glad the girls are getting their say. Though Haru is still a million times better than Kyoko. I'm also current with xxxHOLiC (I only care again because Doumeki and Watanuki are staying with each other now) and Tsubasa (What the fuck has happened to this series? Just tell me if Kurogane and Fai go off to be gay ever after so I can stop caring about this headache inducing clusterfuck.)

So like... I'm getting back into anime again... I blame it solely on the fact that there are quite a few interesting series this season. My load won't nearly be as large as it once was I'm going for roughly five series (six this season if I end up liking all the ones I'm gonna try) and then maybe one or two older series depending on if they're streaming on a legit service.

So for this season I'm going for...

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood - I solely blame my reinterest in anime-watching on this series. Thank goodness someone is streaming it though or I probably would have drug my feet on watching it. After seeing the first episode I have to give it a thumbs up. Maybe it's just because I've been so long without seeing the first series or been so long without seeing anything... I was totally pleased.

Eden of the East - Kenji Kamiyama + Production I.G. + Chika Umino + Pantless Male Lead = I can't resist. You had me at Pantless Male Lead. (Can he dethrone Princess Tutu's Mythos as the Pantless Wonder?) Everything I've heard has been awesome. The lack of pants is just a bonus.

Guin Saga - My inner fantasy nerd took notice of the series, but I wasn't expecting much based on what little digging I did. I've heard some good things so I'll go for it.

Basquash! - What's that you say? Mecha basketball? And I still haven't heard anything negative?

Ristorante Paradiso - A fun romance series is mandatory for my new anime watching schedule.

La Corda D'Oro ~secondo passo~ - What can I say? I enjoyed the first season and it's conveniently streaming on crunchyroll. I am weak. Also it's apparently only two episodes long so... I really can't resist.

As for the older series... I'm in a toss up between finally getting around to Kaleido Star and Natsume Yuujin-Chou. I might break down and go for both if I end up not liking one of the series I'm gonna try out.
