Today's perusal of music blogs revealed a track that I actually own but have never listened to properly. To wit: check out Jaymay's Gray or Blue.


The answers for this meme:
tv shows.
1) Sarah Connor Chronicles. In which Cameron misses the point. Again. (OR DOES SHE???)
2) Dead Like Me. In which Rube hands it back to George.
3) Life. In which Dani can't help herself.
4) CSI:NY. In which Flack brings NYC to life.
5) Touching Evil (US). In which Cragen can't stick to the topic.
6) Band of Brothers. In which Guarnere welcomes Bull back to the fold.
7) Friday Night Lights. In which Tyra's fighting to keep the house together.
8) Saving Grace. In which Grace is The Best Aunt Ever.
9) Criminal Minds. In which Garcia pwns, like always.
10) NCIS. In which DiNozzo puts his foot in it. Again.
11) Weeds. In which Heylia James knows where it's at.

So, Vera Farmiga has astonishing eyes. I thought so in The Departed! And now in Touching Evil (US), too. Which did exactly what I thought it would do with the British version. It reminds me of Life? Except. I don't know. Life both takes itself more and less seriously than TE. ODDNESS. (Oh guys. Life needs to come back. RIGHT NOW PLEASE. [ profile] daygloparker, are you watching this? Because: yes.)


edit: OH MAN. Best in Show is one of the funniest films ever.

VERA FARMIGA IS AMAZING. I have only seen two episodes of Touching Evil (US), but this is something I'm convinced of. Also: crush!

Have you seen Being Human yet? I'm not sure it's your thing per se, but it's good TV. Worth checking out.

She's delightfully pretty! (There is a lot of Inappropriate Intimacy in that show. I KIND OF LOVE IT.)

Hahahaha. (

That's one way to put it.

SO IN LOVE, MEISH. If I get my reading done at a normal hour, I'm rewatching tonight. Weeeerewolf!

Edited because mixing tags = not the way to go.

Hahaha, well. Yes. [A Jewish Werewolf!] (You know what is hilarious? Whilst watching it I was all, "Twincy is going to flip out over George." AND I WAS RIGHT.) But I really do love all three main cast members.

I'm not crazy about him, actually. I like him, but not as much as you and [ profile] razorxrosary) thought I would? Maybe I was just distracted by Mitchell. And, oh man, I want Annie to haunt MY house. ♥

Mitchell's voice, um, MY GOD. And his demeanour. I don't even know.

Annie, BLESS HER. I really liked her? Denz found her too much of an interruption, but I love that scene where she's all, you don't have to keep mentioning the ghost stuff! And the tea!

YES VOICE OMG. I can't place his accent, though, which is driving me nuts. Um. Mitchell in general drives me nuts, for different reasons. That lanky, skinny, darkly mysteriousness is really more [ profile] razorxrosary's thing, but I'm INTRIGUED.

YES. And the Harry Potter quote, lols.

NO, ALL RIGHT, I STILL HAVEN'T STARTED LIFE YET. You can't come in here and wave around your spytastical crack Spooks and then expect me not to get distracted! Um! Even though I've been saying I would start watching pre-strike! Uh! Yes, that's my logic!

BUT. BUT! Okay, no, really, Life! You should get on that! You have until Autumn but sooner is preferable to later! (I am SURPRISED. I feel like this is something you would have jumped on??)

Hahaha, Spooks. We rewatched some of that last night. OH, SHOW. I remember when it first came out, all the cynics were "Pffft, look at the BBC trying to emulate 24." How I laugh now. How I laugh.

HE IS REALLY QUITE FANTASTIC. (I just watched this scene where he's trying to look at Branca's PDA - um, unfortunately not a euphemism - and his hand is on hers? I MIGHT HAVE SWOONED.) You didn't like Burn Notice, did you? Because he was rather !!! at times in that, too.

(I HAVE NO IDEA WHY, EVERYONE TELLS ME THIS. I think it was backlash against not wanting to get hooked by something that might disappear? See, this comment can have coherence: Touching Evil burned me. A LOT. I have scars on my soul from where I fell in love and then USA RIPPED AWAY MY BABY. Even though I KNOW NOW that my baby wasn't perfect, IT STILL HURT.)

The place I'm currently getting my episodes called Spooks "Alias without the camp," AND THAT IS SO TRUE. I love spy shenanigans!

I didn't like the pace/style of Burn Notice - but I loved JD! Like when he took his shirt off all the time. THAT was nice.

(Yeah, there was a lot of that in the fandom. But Damien Lewis' character is that delightful kind of crazy, and Sarah Shahi's Dani is just... SHE'S AMAZING. She spends a good portion of the episodes looking like she's probably going to SMACK Crews, whilst grudgingly liking him, too. SO GOOD. TE (US) is enjoyable in a very... American way? lols. What I mean is that the UK version is so obviously British. Sans camp, indeed.)

Superspies! (There were a slew of Alias/Spooks crossovers around once upon a time. Most of them featured Sark.) Hahaha, later on you will be introduced to someone we lovingly refer to as SpyGran. Oh, Alias.

I think once an episode? \o/
