Since Donal Logue and Ben McKenzie are in Gotham, I guess I'll watch it.

Prompted by pretty much everyone on LJ, I bought a epub of Jim Butcher's Storm Front.

It wasn't what I expected. I vaguely remember comparisons to AtS, but Harry Dresden and Angel aren't anything alike. I guess the PI occupation, but little else.

Initially I thought the writing was a little uneven. I wouldn't expect a character to do some of the things he did. When he threw up seeing a police murder scene, it surprised me. I thought he'd be tougher than that given all his bravado. The bravado is what makes the character fun, and I suspect the dichotomy between the bravado and the more thoughtful man is the crux of the series.

The novel evens out and becomes more believable after a few chapters. Butcher gets into it, it seems. and then the action happens much more smoothly.

If I come across another Dresden novel, I'd probably read it. I'm not compelled to, and I suspect Dresden changes as the many novels happen. As he should.

All in all, a fast fun summer, on the road, read.

Scarlet's watching Scandal. I've never seen a show with so much heavy breathing. Doesn't matter the character situations, heavy breathing.

A little unwieldy, but I don't care.

Happy mother's day to anyone that loves a child. Because seriously, that is all there is to it.

Well, in Sarah's case, maybe a gun or two!

Does Cabin In the Woods, ever get not boring? Because 15 minutes in, and it's a snooze fest.

Speaking of boring, does Marilyn Robinson's Gilead get better? Much the same, I just can't work up the gumption to care. Book group selection. Interestingly enough written, but I just don't care.

I think the last episode of Supernatural should be Sam and Dean going to the world of The French Mistake and living their lives out there. They can open that bar Jared and Jenson keep talking about at cons. It’s not like they would want to be actors. Then they won’t have to die, like Jared thinks they should.

I really liked Alfonso Cuarón's Believe. Except they are moving it to Sunday nights, same time as TWD.

Vikings started up again last night. Cool stuff happening, and several spectacular lines:

“I wanted to step out of your shadow. You understand that, don’t you? But when I stepped out of it there was… there was no sunlight. No sunlight at all.”
— Rollo

Rollo is a vampire. LOL No, not a all. An occasional rapist, and a jerk, but compelling nonetheless. Clive Standon does an exceptional job.

Not sure I can say the same for the lead. Travis Fimmel. He does increasing psychopath pretty well, but not sure about the depth he can portray. If they go historical, then he might not be around that much anyway. Everyone around him blows him away. (I'm not sure what his personal life is like, as his interviews are really bad, and the rest of the cast steps in when he can't answer a simple question.)

Which brings us to Katheryn Winnick, who is as cool a female character to watch as Buffy. She is so badass. Much like Hawaii Five-O where I wanted them to kill off both leads, and leave the show to the secondaries, I would absolutely watch her do Lagertha forever. Knock off her husband and leave her to lead the group. She's pretty much doing that already anyway.

They are setting up some neat stuff, and I can't wait to see how it progresses.

A show that holds your attention. Unlike SPN where I fell asleep this past episode. I guess the bit I missed was where they retreat to their bedrooms and sulk. How long can you do mopey and forlorn? Bah.

I ordered their cd the other day after seeing their video here on LJ. So worth the money.

Since I stayed home sick today, doctor's appt too, I had time to watch a very good movie. Monsters. Made in 2010. Roger Ebert's take. I concur with everything. And when you read the Wikipedia page about it, you will be even more impressed with how it was made.

I thought it would just be another bad scifi movie, that isn't a complaint, I was remarkably surprised with its quality.

shadowkat67 asked: Supernatural vs. Angel the Series...discuss what aspects of the two series you loved and how they differ, particularly the brother and family relationships. Which characters stuck with you most and why.

All of this will be tempered by the fact that Supernatural is still ongoing and Angel the Series ended almost 10 years ago. (I just googled and I didn’t realize that much time had passed. Yikes.)

Read more...Collapse )

Thanks for the question SK!

Bitten on Scifi is so much better than Helix. This time werewolves. You actually care a little about the characters. Not sure how it will go, but I'd be willing to give this one a chance.

The new show Helix might be the stupidest show I've ever watched. On Syfy, but that's no excuse, even their bad movies are better. The plot holes are enough for the whole base to fall into the Antarctic/Arctic ice. They haven't' said which. ETA: I think it might be arctic because the one guy said, "Up here."

Right now the mutated guy is murdering to the song, Do you Know the Way To San Jose. Not funny. It should be funny. Now the characters are doing a montage of their experiences during the attack.

Omg. Where's Sharknado when you need it?

Current favorite quote
It is certainly not then - not in dreams - but when one is wide awake, at moments of robust joy and achievement, on the highest terrace of consciousness, that mortality has a chance to peer beyond its own limits, from the mast, from the past and its castle tower. And although nothing much can be seen through the mist, there is somehow the blissful feeling that one is looking in the right direction.
