I drove my mom and aunt to Costco so we could go shopping and that is ALWAYS a mistake. Shopping with my aunt is crazycakes because she wanders everywhere and never brings enough money. We ended up spending over two hours there. TWO hours! And all she initially went there for was something for dinner.

On the other hand, mom got a lot of Christmas shopping done.


Now on to my shows:
Lost Girl: I love this show and everything about it. It's so ridiculous and campy. It makes me happy in that stupid way Legend of the Seeker and Smallville and Xena and True Blood do. There's no deep thoughts or anything deep about them. Most of my thoughts have to do with Kenzi's hair, which is more shallow than I usually go, but I love Kenzi the mostest because Bo is the Stereotypical Leader Character that I usually dislike like Buffy or Jack O'Neill or Owen Hunt.

Also, even though I really love Saskia, I'm kind of annoyed that the season finale looks like it's going to feature her more than, say, The Morrigan. Because I LOVE The Morrigan and want to see some evidence of her power. Celtic battle goddesses for the win.

The Good Wife: I posted a big long thing a few episodes ago and I want to rewatch the last two episodes so I can write another big long thing. Because I LOVE this show. I love the subtly to it and how it answers some questions while posing others at the same time. I'm actually working on a picspam of the top 5 actors I want to guest star on the show.

Grey's Anatomy: A lot of people have expressed boredom with how the Cristina storyline is playing out ie how long it's taking but I love it. It takes years to get over horrible things. How April can be "over" falling in her best friend's blood is beyond me. Back to the Cristina storyline. It's nailing home how much I HATE Owen. I don't think I've ever hated a character as much as I hate Owen. But McDreamy is being so lovely to Cristina. I'm really loving their burgeoning relationship.

I know this makes me a bad lesbian but I don't really care that much about the Callie/Arizona break-up. Right now I'm really disliking how horrible Callie always is to Arizona. I just want more Arizona and Alex together. I've been wanting the show to have a mentor-student relationship that didn't have a sexual component and I just love how she encourages him.

Private Practice: I like watching this show every week but the characters feel much less "real" to me than in other shows. I hate Addison a little bit more every episode and I just want them to DO something with Amelia.

I can't think of any shows I've been watching lately that I have deep thoughts on. I've been watching Misfits and The Walking Dead but they're just sort of like popcorn.

Ugh, we're watching The Family Stone and it's making my mom and me argue.
ahkna: ([ncis] ziva's got a gun on her back)
Watched Flashpoint, FlashForward and Private Practice tonight. Enjoyed them all. Didn't like FlashForward as much as last week because last week was "I am Janis Hawk and I am awesome." I'm really getting into the groove of the show again so that makes me happy. I feel like the mystery is finally moving forward rather than the characters just pontificating on the same three points over and over again.

Now, to get Navi Rawat to come back as Maya. And I need a gif of Janis taking her prenatal vitamins because that was a gratuitous boob shot if I ever saw one and I really am that shallow.

I also liked Private Practice a lot because my bb Charlotte was both kickass and emoted. OH MAN. When she emotes it kills me. To me it's like Addison was in Season 2 and 3 of Grey's. I don't really care about Naomi still but I wish that Dell's episode count hadn't been cut back from 22 to 13 because I adore him. I want to punch Cooper though. A big punch, right in the mouth.

I finished "Tuck" today at lunch and started Janet Evanovich's "One for the Money". My mom has been pushing Stephanie Plum on me for years and finally she just put the book in my hand and told me to read it. (BTW, she disapproves of Katherine Heigl being cast as Stephanie Plum in the movie)
ahkna: ([tm] the world is full of idiots)
Anyone who's still awake feel free to talk about tv with me in the comments. :)

The Mentalist: Probably the best ep of the season, though I'm not wild about the ending.

FlashForward: Rather boring, but I liked the Mark/Aaron scenes and the Olivia/Bryce scenes. I like the platonic friendships on this show a lot. Bryce was also a character I didn't care very much about but now I kinda love him.

Supernatural: Pretty much what I expected. I don't love Castiel as much as Little Brother does though. One thing I find myself hoping is that the show actually ends this year. They keep building up to the final confrontation and it's going to be so epic nothing can top it. Plus, I am hard pressed to find a show that went out on a high note of their own volition.

Private Practice: I love Charlotte more every week. Dad watched part of it with me and even though he spent most of that time looking at lolcats and lolcat motivation posters he paid enough attention to say that Cooper is a douche. I wasn't particularly moved by any of the stories other than Charlotte's general awesomeness this week but I definitely feel like they're moving towards something.

Grey's Anatomy: I turned it off about 20 minutes in. I've got a download and I might watch it tomorrow. I just don't get this show's age thing. First, age gaps don't matter, then they matter when plot-convenient, then they don't matter again, blah blah blah. It's pretty annoying.

Final tv note of the night: does anyone know where I can find mp3s of Stephen Colbert singing? I love his voice, especially when he sings with his guests.

All in all, last night was a good night of television but the only thing that blew me away was Grey's Anatomy, which was a shock since I've thought it's been really bad for going on two years now.

Other shows from tonight.

Grey's Anatomy: I'm not even going to spoiler cut this because to say it was horribly bad is not a spoiler. Jessica Capshaw and Kevin McKidd remain the only good things about the show but everything else just made me rage and feel bad because of how much I used to LOVE Grey's for being a silly, soapy drama that made me laugh and cry.

I am officially done with it. I still want to write Addison/Erica all the time though.

On the other hand, Private Practice actually made me squeal with glee. thoughts on the show )

FINAL DIAGNOSIS:
FlashForward B+ (up from last week's B-)
Grey's Anatomy: C (up from last week's D-)
Private Practice: A (up from last week's A-)

I feel like I'm really boring lately.

I think stuff is happening but I'm just too tired to write about it. I need a job that means I don't have to commute. Don't we all?

I really liked Private Practice tonight. I'm totally digging this show. It's become one of three shows I don't want to miss every week (the other two being The Mentalist and Bones)

more private practice thoughts )

OMG ALEXIS DENISOF ON PRIVATE PRACTICE. Doesn't he actually have an American accent?

And Alexandra Holden. Playing another pregnant girl. She's the same one who played Jamie Carr in "Where the Boys Are" (aka Callie and Addie's Bonding Episode). It's kind of funny.

Also, could I love Violet and Cooper any more? The answer is no.

I feel like I should have legitimate thinky thoughts but I'm trying to finish fic that is way longer than I ever thought it would be.

Private Practice made me cry tonight.

So, I was feeling kind of blah about the show and then I realized they could do the opposite of what they did with Grey's Anatomy. On Grey's everyone started out okay and broke over the course of the show. I think that Private Practice can succeed if they start with semi-pathetic broken characters (as it seems like they did last week) and fix them. And it can be good and quirky and wonderful

Does that make any sense at all?

Also, ELLIE BARTLETT IS ON PP NEXT WEEK!
ahkna: ([bsg] starbuck itch)
OH HAI THAR KATIE SACKHOFF! Remember how I was in love with you as Starbuck? Well. I AM EVEN MORE IN LOVE WITH YOU AS THE EVIL!BIONIC WOMAN.

I heard that The Bionic Woman wasn't that great but I actually really liked it. But with two incredibly beautiful girls and ass kicking it was pretty certain I would anyway. It just kept getting gayer and gayer. Sarah and the holding back of the hair and the eyeing up Jamie and the wearing of lipstick and eyeliner. I don't care if this is the worst show in the world, I will watch it if they promise Katee will occasionally show up and be evil.

I also watched Private Practice (okay, hopefully better in coming episodes), Back to You (waaaaaay funnier than I thought it would be) and Bones (hi there, Emily Deschanel. You get even hotter every season of this show). Plus The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. I am a TV WATCHING MACHINE. That I watched that many tv shows, plus four episodes of TWW and three movies AND finished the last fifty pages of my books tells me that maybe I'm not sleeping enough.

But seriously, look at how beautiful Emily is:
