So, let's see. The semester started last week. So now the busy begins again. I was in the Chicago area the week before that. Where I lost a day and a half to the damn stomach flu. Put a serious crimp in our plans. Hmm. Got a new cell phone. I has pretty, Droid Incredible now. It is pretty, and I shall love, and pet it, and call it George. *ahem* I look forward to getting a bookshelf/desk this weekend, and finally having a proper work space again. Somewhere over the summer, my stuff hit critical mass and exploded all over my desk in random, cluttertastic ways. It's horrible. We probably won't be moving out of our sort of crappy apartment until next semester. We had things to take care of this time around that had been put off too long, and that ate money. Hate how fast that sometimes happens. Sadly, that's about as interesting as my life gets, these days.
And now, to finish off this durn thing ...
Day 16 - Your guilty pleasure show
It's a toss up between "What Not to Wear" and "Say Yes to the Dress," both of which are on TLC. I guess I'm hoping for inspiration from the first, and sighing over the wedding I may never have during the second. *shrug* Who can figure?
Day 17 - Favorite mini series
Well, there's really only two that I've really watched. Shogun (think back, it was the 80's) and Sci-Fi's rendition of Dune. I think I may still like Shogun more.
Day 18 - Favorite title sequence
Hmm. I'm definitely a fan of the original title sequences for Stargates SG-1 and Atlantis. After they chopped them though, ugh. So I think I'll go with Chuck. It just makes me giggle.
Day 19 - Best TV show cast
Uh ... that's a hard one. I think I'll have to go with Farscape on this one. Also another great opening sequence, redone several times for cast changes and/or series progression.
Day 20 - Favorite kiss
Old favorite, Crichton and Aeryn on Farscape ... somewhere along the line. It makes its way into the opening credits. It's a great kiss. New favorite, Carter and Allison on Eureka, 1st episode of season 4. They're back in the 1940's, they're not sure they're both going to get back, and he finally goes for it. And then in the third to last episode of the season (already? damn!) they finally get it together in the present. Good times.
Day 21 - Favorite ship
As in ... vessel? That sort of leaves out a lot of shows ... that'd be Moia on Farscape, hands down. I mean, she's a living ship, and she looks after her folk, in a strange way. But I'm guessing that's not what this one meant. All I can say there is that I don't really do "ship" much. I pretty much stick with canon. This hasn't always been the case, but I just don't have that much time/energy to invest in it these days. I'm boring. Sorry.
Day 22 - Favorite series finale
I think, pretty much, Buffy the Vampire Slayer. "Save the world, go to the mall?" Plus, Willow changes slayerdom, and such. Plus, it was an end that didn't involve Buffy dying. Again.
Day 23 - Most annoying character
What, ever? Francine Desmond, on The Scarecrow and Mrs. King. Seriously, that woman was annoying, petty, and downright mean. They manage to semi-redeem her over the course of the show, but that "annoying" thing never wears off.
Day 24 - Best quote
Wow. I SO don't have the time to dig through my brain and/or the Interwebs trying to figure out the best quote. There are so many to chose from. But if you ever watch Firefly, in the episode War Stories, be on the lookout for "I'll be in my bunk."
Day 25 - A show you plan on watching (old or new)
Yeah. My life doesn't run this way. I watch it, or I don't. Sometimes I realize that I meant to watch something, but I never plan on it. Just doesn't happen.
Day 26 - OMG WTF? Season finale
MASH. There were at least three or four good moments of WTF? going on there. I prefer to ignore it's existence, quite frankly.
Day 27 - Best pilot episode
Hmm. Old days, I'd have said Star Trek: Voyager. It set up a great first few seasons, which TPTB then managed to kill with Borg of Boobies. (No disrespect to the actress, I blame writers and producers and network execs, all the way.) These days ... goodness. There's Eureka's pilot, which sets up everything you really need to know about the town, and sets up most of the character dynamics for the first two-three seasons. There's Chuck, where the first episode basically gives you the flavor of the whole show and makes you root for the nerd. (Gotta love that!) And then there's Castle, where they basically just dive right in and make it all go "Oh My Gods This Show Is AWESOME!" (Or maybe that was just me?)
Day 28 - First TV show obsession
Star Trek. Watched the original show with my dad as a kid. Started watching the Next Generation in ... gosh, had to be junior high? Started watching DS9 in high school. Started watching Voyager in college (mark 1, mind you). Tried to watch enterprise, but it just ... sucked. And now, thanks to Lucas ruining Star Wars forever for me, I don't think I'll ever watch the new Trek movie. I'd rather have my remaining childhood favorites unruined, thanks.
Day 29 - Current TV show obsession
Eureka. Castle. White Collar. Chuck. (if i ever catch up. sigh.) Haven.
Day 30 - Saddest character death
Toss up. Joyce Summers, on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. (Just when you think she's all better, bam. Dead. And holy shite, the fall-out.) Dr. Janet Fraser, on Stargate SG-1. (Cause you just don't see that one coming, and that was just ... awful.) Kim Anderson, on Eureka. (Minor recurring guest character, but Henry Deacon literally changed the world to save her once, and then Carter has to stop him from saving her because it will end the universe. Needless to say, the devastation behind this one is hard-core.) And finally, Lt. Col. Henry Blake, on MASH. (Just when you think he's going home, and everyone's been celebrating all episode, right at the end there's the bombshell telegram announcement from Radar while everyone's in surgery. It's evil I tell you, evil!)
And now, I'm done with this. Yeah, ok, it probably took longer than 30 days for me to finish the damn thing. My bad.( Remember the rest of the list? )
