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.

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.

Okay so on Friday we finally (finally) got Booster Gold on Batman: The Brave and the Bold. Tom Everett Scott was back as Booster and Billy West was back as Skeets (they previously played them in an awesome episode of Justice League Unlimited).

I thought the episode was great. Booster was mostly played for laughs, but he did get his angst moment after Skeets was captured. "You broke my buddy. Now I'm gonna break you." was a great line.

While the episode lacked the emotional stuff "Fall of the Blue Beetle!" had, I really did enjoy it. I'm just extremely saddened that Booster and Ted have never appeared together in any of DC's animation projects. (Rights to the Blue Beetle were snarled during Justice League's run and DC is really pushing current!Beetle, Jaime in Brave and the Bold. I believe he's been in more episodes than anyone else other than Batman. Though Aquaman might be tied with him.)

I'm excited for next week's episode as well since the guest star is Robin/Dick! And we get both green panties and pixie boots and his Earth-2 costume (even though it's ugly as sin.) Ooh according to Wiki the guy who played Jet in Avatar is Robin.

And then according to Wiki, it just gets better. Ace the Bat-Hound, Catman (omg he's played by Biff lol), and Bat-Mite all in the same episode. That's some win right there.

I rarely actively seek it out. I enjoy getting it at times though. I always feel like a glory-hog or something when I actively seek it.

I got roped into watching fairly meh movies last night. I can never decide if I like Anne Hathaway or not. I'll see her in one thing and enjoy her and then see her in something else and be annoyed by her. I'm also starting to really enjoy Patrick Wilson, though I'm still baffled by casting him as Dan in Watchmen.

Also what are the odds of watching two completely unrelated movies with basically the same twist back to back? Cause that happened last night and it was kinda weird.

Class trip tomorrow! Yay! But we're not going to the movies anymore. Boo.

Also also... they've apparently cast Thor (the guy who played Kirk's dad in Star Trek) and I can actually see him working. I really hope they go the Don Blake route and not the Ultimate Thor route. (Hot doctor with a cane and a sexy nurse > Guy with a beard who everyone thinks is crazy and his Barbie jailbait.) In fact his picture here really looks like Don Blake.

Now if they can just cast Captain America so I can stop freaking out. =(

P.S. Fanbabble about Booster Gold on Batman: Brave the Bold later.

I finally got 100% with LEGO Batman! I enjoy that Ra's has Nightwing's move set and Hush has Two-Face's.

In other news... Fuck you, Fox. Fuck you where the sun doesn't shine. Thank you for killing any interest I had in the Wolverine movie by completely and totally butchering Deadpool. Really. Thanks. You make Wade not happy. >=( (See these three links: 1 2 3. Last one contains spoilers for said movie.)

So first I read this week's Ask Ausiello on EW.com expecting to see the usual Forteen/Huddy spoilers, but instead I find awesome Wilson spoilers much to my shock. The next episode is supposed to be a Wilsontastic episode of House. So I'm all "YES!" then I remember that House isn't on for two weeks because of some stupid 24 junk so that means the episode won't air till March 9th... which is the day I leave for competition. Dammit. At lest USA shows repeats the following week.

And now... [livejournal.com profile] scans_daily has been nuked. WTF LIVEJOURNAL WHERE WILL I GET MY AWESOME NOW?

edit: s_d mod post explaining some things including a link to the secondary community on InsaneJournal.

I CAUGHT UP ON SHORTPACKED!


I totally wasn't expecting to care about anything other than the comic parodies (I'm Batman.) but dammit if I don't love Ethan and Mike and everyone... even Faz. Oh Mike... why can't you just admit you're gay for Ethan?

Go read it... please? Especially if you like comic book/old school cartoon nerdiness. Plus it has a talking car that loves Short Circuit. How can you not enjoy that?

SHORTPACKED!

"You want to ruin Character A and Character B's super awesome relationship by making A sleep with Character X?" *SLAP*

"You want some shitty Z-list character to kill of super awesome Character C just to prove that things are bad?" *SLAP*

"You want to change it so that super awesome Character D, that never did anything bad to anyone, was brutally assaulted in the past?!" * DOUBLESLAP*

I want that to be me. Can it? Can it, please?! D=

Wolverine and the X-Men episodes 1 & 2:

Not bad so far. Wolverine's mutton chops are super annoying though. How can he stand it with that on his face?!

Episode one had some nice cameos. Boom Boom, Pyro, Dust... Yay Dust! Also what did they do to Rahne? She looked some weird cat thing.

Episode two had Pietro! Yay Pietro! Though I wish I knew why they insist on having him sound like a smartass punk. If anything he should sound like an uppercrust smartass. >=(

Also fucking whoo for having Angel as a core team member! (Double whoo for Liam O'Brien!)


Batman: The Brave and the Bold, The Fall of the Blue Beetle

D'awwwww Ted love! I love the science talk with Bats while they're in the middle of sneaking into stuff.

Whoo Dan got a mention!

Also "A man without fear?! That's a mental condition!" Oh Paco. I ♥ you.

OMG next week's episode is gonna have Plastic Man and Elongated Man. Win.

I haven't really had much to post about over the last few months, but now that there's actually quite a bit of stuff happening I feel it's time.


Living with someone new is hard. But I'm getting used to it. (Sharing a computer is hard when you're so used to having it all to yourself.) We're trying to get a house that's a couple of miles down the road now that we've gotten the payout from mom's life insurance. Hopefully it'll come through and by winter we'll be in a toasty new house (and I'll have my compy back.)


I was hoping to go to a tech school here last month, but I missed getting in. So I got kinda depressed and tried looking for a job which never panned out. But I got the news about 15 minutes ago that a spot opened and I can start Monday. Classes are in the afternoon from 12:15 to 3:15.


We did get bad news last night though. My (almost) uncle's sister had a stroke and is in the hospital in Indiana (she was on her way to Michigan.) They left last night at about nine to go and see her. They're planning on being back by Monday for work and everything.


I still miss Mom. I think about her at random times. It's been rough sometimes. I'm so used to her coming home at five and then us cooking together and then talking about random stuff. I wish I had spent more time that was just us.


Lighter side of things... I'm totally and completely addicted to House. Why did I not watch this sooner?! It's like someone crawled into my brain and made a show just for me. I also saw a bit of the last Supernatural season. It was pretty good. I wish it was in syndication somewhere so I could catch the earlier seasons. The new Heroes season looks awesome (though considering season two... just about anything looks awesome.) How I Met Your Mother is making me super happeh since my ship since the beginning is almost canon! Whoo!


I've been watching a lot of movies lately. The Dark Knight was awesome, but a part of it just didn't click with me. I felt Iron Man was the better superhero movie this summer (of course my longstanding love of RDJ could be clouding things there.) Speed Racer was kind of crap. It was worth it for Rain and Patrick from Coupling though.


Also I can't stop going to [livejournal.com profile] scans_daily. Like at all. It calls to me.
