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!

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!
hobbitofkobol: (LOST confused lostday)
Today was pretty cool.

1. LOST season premiere was awesome. I'm more confused than ever but I'm not even trying to make theories, I'm being patient just like Damon told us to be. I cried a few times. (How perfect is this icon?)

2. I received my bday present and couldn't wait until Friday to play with it. So um yes, Beatles Rock Band is like the best video game ever (ok, I'm not a gamer haha). I looooove the Hofner bass replica, it's so pretty. I spent all afternoon playing. First I learned the basic moves with the tutorials of both drums and guitar. I'm not very good at drums ahem. I haven't tried to play real songs with it but my hands/foot coordination is not good. Even my mom thought it was awesome and she tried playing a bit haha. So then I spent hours playing the guitar (easy mode) and played all the songs (omg the introduction and the transitions are so pretty) and it's a bit embarrassing how much I got into it lol. Sometimes I got distracted by what was going on on the screen. When I mess up my guitar solos, I say "sorry, George!". My shoulders and wrists hurt, especially because of I want you (she's so heavy) because this song lasts forever. So to relax my hands I tried the singing part but I was quite confident so I started with the difficult mode. And got 100% on A Hard Day's Night and Can't Buy Me Love!

The reason I stopped playing? Dinner time + my parents are watching the TV now.

Now I need to figure out what my code is to play online with friends. And I need a screen name too? mmm what could it be...

Oh, and I want the additional albums now of course. Damn it. I need to figure out how to dld them too.
hobbitofkobol: (LOST jin omgyay)
The past 2-3 days I've rewatched 17 episodes of LOST (while doing other things) and I'm finally in the mood for it! w00t! This is great because I'm going to be really psyched watching the final season.

It's fun to see how back in season 1 the major problem of the week could be "a boar is stalking Sawyer!" hahaha
So many classic moments. I can quote so much dialogue.

As a result, I'm being a total nerd about it and found it amusing to play with my MiniPiano app on my iPhone and find the melody of one of the major themes of the show.

Speaking of LOST, awesome link from [livejournal.com profile] truffle_shuffle, 5 suggestions for a Lost Theme Park Attraction.

And this is why Damon and Carlton are awesome.

On Scrubs this week (yes I'm still watching) there was a LOST fan and the douchebag played by James Franco's little brother tells him that LOST is cancelled and "oh no too many questions unanswered!" to distract him from an exam.

You know who likes LOST too? Lie To Me showrunner/The Shield creator Shawn Ryan.

I was bored last night waiting for my FNL download and ended up watching episode 3 of The Vampire Diairies and actually enjoyed it! (I had stopped after 2 eps but then [livejournal.com profile] benelie gave me the rest of them last December) Maybe after Boone died he became a vampire. (see? Lost is on my mind)

So now what should I do... watch more Vampire Diairies or watch a movie? mmm...

what a random TV entry. I felt spammy today.
hobbitofkobol: (HP ron)
I've now rewatched GoF, OotP & PS/SS (lol they were all so little). Yes that's a weird order. I still can't stop nitpicking every detail about the movies. Why, self, why? I'm mostly annoyed when the changes don't make sense, or when I can't see a reason why they changed it, or it's OOC or it's incoherent with the HP universe.

Should I try too reread HBP mmm... I'm afraid that the fresher the book is in my mind, the more annoyed I'll be at the movie

[livejournal.com profile] ack_attack's Daily Doses of Lost are all HP-themed in honor of the movie until Wednesday, they're hilarious!

and finally...

❝the HARRYPOTTER meme❞
hobbitofkobol: (HIMYM robin chilling out)
If there is one person or more on your friends list who makes your world a better place just because they exist and who you would not have met (in real life or not) without the internet, then post this same sentence in your journal.
♥ ♥ ♥

So last night I dreamed that my boyfriend was Tim Riggins, that his brother was dating Robin Scherbatsky who was my BFF and that I was working for Torchwood. I think my subconscious was compensating for the lack of excitement in my life haha.

I'm very amused by this discussion on the Lost-Island forum. Geez calm down, people! What I don't understand is people who say "but this blog is lame I'm not interested in this type of news"... then why are you watching a blog that clearly is about "behind the scenes"? I don't get it. And if you don't care, why do you keep talking about it?
(context: it's about the video blog of a journalist talking about the Monte Carlo Television Festival, he asked his colleagues about what they liked and didn't like and they all said that they were shocked by Matthew Fox's obnoxious behaviour - personally I'm not surprised, not the 1st time I'm hearing this)
What's "original" is this case is that the journalist himself is taking part in the discussion lol.

I know this is all over your f-lists but just in case some of you are looking for information...

under the cut because spoiler alert: he's shirtless

I'm very amused by the results (so far) of the Hotties poll, round 1. Especially the people who have zero votes so far haha. Btw go vote if you haven't yet because votes are very close and I think there might be some ties. Idk when I'm going to close round 1 because I want [livejournal.com profile] gossy16 to have the time to spam with her pretty pics :p

ETA: some of you didn't read my instructions very well... you have to vote for only TWO guys and TWO girls OVERALL, the polls are divided because LJ has a 15 options limit. Also, you vote for people you find the LEAST attractive.
you can change your answers by filling out the poll again here

Just finished my [livejournal.com profile] dollhouse_lims entry while watching old school ER. I forgot John Terry was in it! Newsflash: he plays a douchebag doctor.
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?

- 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.

Sorry about the re-posting, Kat didn't like my first poll and LJ does not want me to include a new poll in an old entry, pffft. Previous post is deleted.

Help [livejournal.com profile] sideshowkat and I settle on this:

[Poll #1252628]

In other news, the official Dr Horrible OST is so pretty to my ears after weeks of listening to the ripped audio. Though Penny's Song sounds a bit saturated to me... ? Lyrics and Liner Notes! Vocals Recorded on March 1st - 5th in Joss’ loft hehe

Zack Whedon's photos from Comic Con are awesome. My favorites are this one, that one, and that other one.

lol Tahmoh at DC... talking Dollhouse... and looking like a pimp?
hobbitofkobol: (LOST faraday keysmash)


as I watched it )

FRAK. Next week's episode is in two weeks? :(((
hobbitofkobol: (BSG tahmoh&trucco make space sexier)
TV.com awards... hahahahahahaha YES. WORD.

(how did that happen though?)

and Grace won too!

aw much as I love them... how???

also: Lost got editor's choice as best show AND best drama AND best episode and BSG as best sci-fi
ok, I love Scrubs but there's no way season 6 was better than The office!

Hey, I forgot to mention that I won the screencap contest at [livejournal.com profile] lost_tv! lol I was SURE that I wouldn't be the quickest to get them all right but I wanted to play anyway. My obsessive re-watching paid off.
hobbitofkobol: (BSG gaius/Gaeta OTP!!!!)
Just found this and I want to dedicate it to the Lost&BSG obsessed fans of my flist (you KNOW who you are)

this BSG one set to Sia's Breathe Me is AMAZING. And it has, like, ALL the characters
