Emmys!

hobbitofkobol: (FNL tami > you)
it's nominations day and as usual they're disappointing... but a bit less than usual

the noms and my own list )
hobbitofkobol: (BTVS giles + TV)
Yes, I'm already bored. Which is ridiculous because I don't usually have anything to watch on this day of the week.

But I actually have quite a lot of shows I got from [livejournal.com profile] benelie or downloaded back when I had a very fast internet and plenty of HD space.

As usual it's really hard for me to decide what to watch. I often have a hard time getting into a show, or even finding the motivation to start it at all. Once I'm a few episodes in and it has hooked me, I'm hooked for good. (note: somehow it's different if I start watching the show as it premieres on TV, go figure).

If you could comment with reasons why I should watch a certain show/why I would like it, that'd help too!

You can always suggest me other stuff but my slow internet is annoying when I need to dld entire seasons and I don't have much space left on my hard drives (2 internal and 2 external aaaaaah) so...

Yes, I know, most of these were already in a similar poll I made last year...

[Poll #1572491]


Speaking of polls, remember when I made a True Blood Fantasy Casting Poll? Turns out we were psychic because the guy who won the poll was cast as Alcide for real. So I was thinking of doing one for a ~certain role~ on Chuck (I'm being cryptic because I have at least one friend who's not caught up with season 3 :p). If you've seen the finale, you know whom I mean! So... any suggestions?

PS: stop making me want to cry, Giacchino!
hobbitofkobol: (LOST confused lostday)
Um so I began to write this just after I saw it, which was Wednesday afternoon, but then I got too lazy to finish...

Saying goodbye to the icon I'm using now...

my thoughts about the finale )

now some thoughts on the TV I caught up with:
30 Rock: Matt Damon dancing hahaha. Nuff said.
Bones: Hodgins speaking French is hot. What? What plot? Oh yeah, this end is intriguing, I wonder when the next season will begin (in-series timeline, not the date of the premiere lol).
Chuck: awesome finale again! wow this show keeps changing but stays so good
Doctor Who: fun with a side of creepy, yay part 2 tonight
FlashForward: I enjoyed the last 2 episodes (Team John Cho & Dom!!! :D), it would have made a good season finale but alas it's a series finale so...
Glee: I enjoyed it this week. The outfits were hilarious and I liked the songs. And Kurt's dad FTW.
Grey's Anatomy: surprisingly, one of the best finales! Part of it reminded of ER (another very dangerous workplace lol). It was a bit like "let's get rid of the people we don't want as regulars next year!" though.
HIMYM: didn't really like this season finale... why aren't you funny anymore, show?
Community, Parks&Rec, The Big Bang Theory: not their best episodes but solid finales
Parenthood: as usual it's not extraordinary but the characters feel real and the emotions genuine.

Almost everything's on hiatus now. :(
According to my calendar, I only have 18 episodes scheduled to air in June.
But I have plenty of stuff stored in hard drives and on DVDs to watch! Like Life on Mars (UK of course)! Maybe I'll also try Farscape (my dad owns a few seasons on DVD). And watch the dozens of movies I own and haven't seen yet!

snagged from... everyone

Answer the questions using only userpics.


icons! )

Have seen Chuck (fun!!!), HIMYM (meh, though it had some good moments) and TBBT (aww Sheldon). Now hurry up, Castle download! Need my Fillion&Trucco fix!

Started packing for the London/Echo-1 trip. Because yes, it takes me 2 days for my brain to remember everything I need to bring.

Speaking of Echo-1, anyone got questions for Dichen Lachman, Miracle Laurie, Fran Kranz or Tahmoh Penikett? I can totally make [livejournal.com profile] benelie ask them. :p
hobbitofkobol: (PUSHING DAISIES the facts were these)
Yesterday I realized that I forgot Kristen Bell in my poll. FAIL. She's one of my favorites. And I had written down her name when I'd done my list. I don't know how this happened!

PEOPLE WHO DID VERY WELL )

Round 4 Poll
Once again, don't forget that you're voting for TWO guys and TWO girls that you find LEAST attractive.

poll )

Last night I was too tired to catch up on TV. Me! I blame Nouvelle Star that went on forever. On that note, go Dave! Because he flew all the way from Mauritius to participate and well, that's where my dad is from haha. But he was one of the best last night. Which is not saying much (seriously, wtf). And WTF at the jury saving Marine instead of Ambre or Lucia. Apparently it's Manoukian's fault. Of course it is, he wants to bang one of them every year and he picked her.

And now I have even more show to catch up with as I spent the day shopping for various things with my parents (books, flowers, food...) and I have a headache that won't go away... maybe because of my allergies.
hobbitofkobol: (DW who da man?)

Round 3 Poll
Once again, don't forget that you're voting for TWO guys and TWO girls OVERALL (not two per poll question) that you find LEAST attractive.

poll )

In TV news, loved Lost and V, BBT was funny but not one of the best, was disappointed by Glee & HIMYM, still haven't seen this week's Castle & House & USoT. I think that's it?

Job itw went ok, imo I did better at last week's (still haven't heard anything from that one, which is making me anxious). Will know if I get 2nd job itw next week.

This is the list of metacritic.com's Best-Reviewed Wide-Release Films of the Decade 2000-09.

1. Italicize the movies you watched.
2. Bold your favourites.
3. Strike the ones you watched and disliked.
4. Leave as is movies you haven’t seen.
5. Post your answers.


the list )

I'm reading random articles at tvtropes.org, it's quite fun and addictive and holy crap I opened dozens of tabs and ended up reading them for hours.

funny excerpts )
hobbitofkobol: (COMM abed&troy shenanigans)
I removed my brace today (doctor advised to keep it 10 days at least, it's been 2 weeks). It feels a bit weird, it hurts a bit but in a different way as before, I think it's plain induced by wearing the brace lol. It feels so good to type like a normal person with both hands and all!

I got 2 calls from recruitment agencies that were interested in my profile. They both told me I should hear from the company that hired them soon. One call was today so it's fresh but the other one was Tuesday and still no call so I'm wondering what that means. :( Especially since they told me they want to fill the position as soon as possible. :(

from [livejournal.com profile] fannish5

List 5 fictional doctors you'd want treating you. (Or not.)


WANT
- Gregory House: I wouldn't want to have to interact with him but at least I'd get the right diagnosis.
- John Dorian (Scrubs): because of his bedside manner and we could geek out about random stuff or watch TV to distract me
- Simon Tam (Firefly): because he's pretty
- John Carter (ER): because he's good in stressful & extreme situations (Darfur anyone?) and I ♥ him
- Captain Awesome (Chuck): because he's awesome, duh! And a surgeon, right? I needed one of those on my list. (what is Simon's specialty?)

I'm sad about not having any women on this list. Almost included Cristina Yang but then I thought of Awesome and he's nicer to talk to haha.

DNW
- Jack Shephard (Lost): omg stop projecting your daddy/island/Kate issues on my case and stop crying
- Sherman Cottle (BSG): this is a non-smoking area, thank you
- Ethan Rom (Lost): just too creepy
- The Todd (Scrubs): sexual innuendos and painful high-fives, no thanks
- Dr Robert (BSG): in case I'm from a planet he doesn't like

*PS: isn't this quote a rip-off from Arrested Development? only with pie instead of sandwich? whatever, you're still awesome, Community
hobbitofkobol: (BTVS giles + TV)
Thank you all for your kind comments on my last entry. ♥

So yes, I have a job itw in Paris next Thursday. And another one near Le Mans on Tuesday (a 2 1/2 hours drive, ugh). I hope one of them will turn out well!

Meanwhile, a TV meme I stole from [livejournal.com profile] hopelessfangirl

questions&answers )

I'm still playing a lot of Beatles Rock Band and getting better (it's getting better all the time) at it. I can play all the songs in medium level for guitar and bass and get 92 to 100%. I even tried to play a bit of bass in hard level and for some of the songs it was okay, I need to get used to moving my left hand. You know what's annoying? When you miss ONE chord in the whole song. Oh and when you get 100% at a guitar solo and are all proud of yourself and then bam! Somehow you miss an easy chord right after that.
hobbitofkobol: (BSG helo is sad)
The last part finally! Well it's in 4 sub-parts because it's huge.

2009 PICSPAMS
Part 1: New Celeb Crushes
Part 2: Favorite Books/Movies/Music
Part 3: Top Characters

PART 4d:


Moments that were very emotional, mostly sad moments that made me cry (a lot for some).

SPOILER ALERT: big spoilers for series finales & character deaths. Biggest spoilers are for Being Erica, Torchwood, BSG, LOST. Sorted by TV show with spoilers spaces.



The rest of the TV Moments picspam in 3 parts
- epic & cool moments
- OMGLOL moments
- OMGWTF moments

PS: sorry about the spam!

Part 3: Top Characters

PART 4c:


Moments that were really shocking, made me shout at the screen, say "holy frak!" or things like that.

SPOILER ALERT: well it's a picspam of shocking moments so the spoilers are particularly huge. So if you're not caught up with the following shows there's a high risk of you getting spoiled for key moments: Being Human, Torchwood, BSG, LOST, Dexter & White Collar. Sorted by show to try and prevent this.



The rest of the TV Moments picspam in 3 parts
- epic & cool moments

PART 4b:


No specific order. Moments that were really funny, that made me spit my drink/lol in RL/stop the video to laugh.

SPOILER ALERT: this time it's no big deal, of course I'm using images from shows aired in 2009 but it's not like it's a picspam of big reveals.

PART 4a:


No specific order. Moments that were really cool, that changed a show completely, that made me geek out over them, that gave me chills or/and are epic. And that didn't fit in the other categories haha.

SPOILER ALERT: this picspam includes images from TV shows that aired in 2009. For this particular part there are some important spoilers about FNL, BSG, Dexter, Chuck, Dollhouse (though when you don't have the context it might not be obvious). This time I'm not using spoiler spaces because I'd have to put some everywhere.

I know, I know, it's 2010 now... but this is taking forever to compile!

2009 PICSPAMS
Part 1: New Celeb Crushes
Part 2: Favorite Books/Movies/Music

PART 3:


These are the characters that really impressed me this year. Some of them are new (new show or show I started to watch in 2009), some of them are not but became really awesome in my book. This is not a picspam of my favorite characters overall. There are 12 female and 11 male characters from 16 different shows. One actress is in there twice. Order is mostly alphabetical (file names).

SPOILER ALERT: this picspam includes images from TV shows that aired in 2009. But I don't think I used any particulary spoilery screencaps except for two characters, which I'm gonna put at the end of the picspam with a warning.
However, though there is a character from FNL included, I ignored season 4 because it's not aired on NBC yet.




coming next...
Part 4: Best TV Moments (which actually is probably gonna be in several parts... with categories such as (working titles) omgwtf, sadface, epic cool & lolz)
hobbitofkobol: (MOVIES star trek pew pew)
I'm still in a Beatles mood and rewatched A Hard Day's Night last night (which is the only Beatles movie I've seen, and I'm currently trying to obtain the others) and I had a weird dream. I was working at the Chicago Cook County with Dave Malucci (I did catch a couple of old S5 ER episodes on TV last week) and I was on my break and went to buy donuts and I chatted a while with the guy selling them. It was a young George Harrison. LOL.

2009 PICSPAMS
Part 1: New Celeb Crushes
Part 2: Favorite Books/Movies/Music



Again, no particular order. These were not necessarily released in 2009, but I watched/read them for the 1st time in 2009 or listened to them a lot. Maybe I'll edit this list if I see sth awesome before the year is over.



coming next...
Part 3: Top TV Characters
Part 4: Best TV Moments
hobbitofkobol: (Xmas all!)
Once again the Golden Globes nominations suck and are boring but we're used to it (talking about TV here).

my reaction with mandatory rant about TV noms (I can't help it even though I know the noms are always stupid) )

movies: (I haven't seen most of them)
- yay Marion Cotillard! (haven't seen the movie though)
- lol Meryl Streep vs Meryl Streep
- (500) days of summer + Joseph Gordon-Levitt!!! ♥
- lol RDJ is nominated for Sherlock Holmes? but this isn't even out yet! not that I'm complaining :D
- I wish Michael Giacchino (Up) was nominated against himself for Star Trek

***

In not ranty news, how awesome was Lie to Me? (I'm speaking of the part with Brendan Hines & Felicia Day hehe). Who wants the song? I've ripped it from the episode (click!).

And I also have lyrics! )
hobbitofkobol: (TW don't forget Ianto)
Tonight I went to a football game (we won again, yay) and the club had invited about 6,000 children to see the game for free. So you know kids, they get easily enthusiastic and like us they like to chant for the team. At some moments it was only them chanting one word and I found it creepy and didn't know why I felt like that.

Then I remembered. Children of Earth.

Bloody Torchwood.

Not updating much because of the 1st epic battle at [livejournal.com profile] twelvecolonies and because of Shindig at [livejournal.com profile] whedonland. This one's over now, the 1st apocalypse is due in a few days so if you've been wanting to join, now's the time!!! (join Team Firefly! we're the best! :p ok, ok the other teams are pretty awesome too but with names like Team Angel, Team Buffy and Team Dollhouse, they're bound to!) Seriously it's really fun, the activities are very diverse (games! graphics! writing!), there's a lot of crack (like pirate day!) and people are so creative!

Yeah and TV is taking me a lot of time too! Too many shows to watch! Not enough time to post reviews! I do read yours on the f-list and comment when I have sth to say lol. Today was Dollhouse + Psych, which were awesome. And now it's Merlin time!
hobbitofkobol: (LOST juliet)
Pimpage:

- vote at my friend [livejournal.com profile] benelie's Best TV ship of 2008/2009 poll (it's like my Hotties poll, but with ships!)
- love TV? love making icons? join [livejournal.com profile] tvpassiton! inspired by [livejournal.com profile] bsgpassiton, it's open to all! (basically the mods pick a theme to pass it on, like rainbow colors, episodic, pass a cap...)


Answers to the Fandom questions meme

1. [livejournal.com profile] benelie asked me: As you finished FNL, tell what're your hopes for next season!

answer + 10 more questions )

Because of [livejournal.com profile] hopelessfangirl I'm listening to the SFU OST and this song still makes me wanna cry :((
hobbitofkobol: (BUFFY xander oh noes)
You may or may not have noticed that I had disappeared from the internet since Sunday. There was a terrible storm at home Sunday night and lightning stroke and my internet box died. Got it replaced only... right now. Anything important I missed in your lives or fandom?

So how was life without the internet? Well I took advantage of this time to watch almost every pilot episode of every unseen TV show I have on my computer (that's a lot, like, 10) and I've now watched the first half of season 1 of FNL and I want Coach Taylor to coach my football team even though it's not the same football.

Oh and I have a job itw on Friday morning :D

But let's go back to serious business with Round 4 of the Hot Celebs poll!

ELIMINATED )

PEOPLE WHO DID EXTREMELY WELL )

Round 4 Poll
yay only one question per gender! we're down to 14 people
Vote for the TWO guys and the TWO girls that you find the LEAST attractive.

the poll )
hobbitofkobol: (GLEE don't stop believing)
RL update
Got negative answers for both last week's job itws. yay. Hello square one, how have you been?

TV
- It's so weird not having a to-download schedule lol. Instead of taking this opportunity to catch up on TV or finally starting highly-recommended shows, I'm rewatching ER from the beginning. WTF self?
- And instead of making my entry for [livejournal.com profile] dollhouse_lims, I made GLEE icons (see icon I'm using).
- This speculation about sth shown at ABC's upfronts (=possible LOST spoiler, if true I'd say it's big) makes me happy but I don't want to get my hopes up.
- The TV Gods LOVE me this year. Maybe they want to make up for all the FAIL I had to go through before? EVERYTHING I watch is renewed (the exception being Pushing Daisies, but it's 2008 news). EVERYTHING. Even one show I love but didn't want to see renewed as the finale was awesome and I had closure (Scrubs). My only loss is the shows whose ending was programmed (BSG, ER).
(for the record this season (fall/winter) I watched: 30 Rock, Being Erica, Better off Ted, Bones, BSG, Castle, Chuck, Dexter, Dollhouse, ER, Gossip Girl, Grey's Anatomy, Heroes, House, HIMYM, Lie to Me, Lost, Parks&Recreation, Party Down, Private Practice, Psych, Scrubs, The Big Bang Theory, The Office, US of Tara)

Hotness Poll, Round One
Let's play the Hotness Poll! I saw this in a few of my friends' LJ and I'm bored (humor me, I'm unemployed!). And it gives me an excuse to post pretty pictures everyday for a while.

1. I picked 20 female and 20 male celebs (lol, celebs... most of them are from TV and wouldn't qualify as celebs for a mainstream crowd) I find attractive.
2. Everyday I'll make a poll and you'll have to vote for the TWO girls and TWO guys you find the least attractive.
3. With the daily poll I'll post the results with pretty pictures of the people who were eliminated.
