You love 'em then you leave 'em
With your sold out reviews

No More, No More
No More, No More

So I've officially stopped watching Numb3rs. Somebody please inform me if this show ever goes back to the Don-suffers-and-hurts-and-shoots-people-and-generally-walks-a-small-small edge show, cause if it does, I'll be back. So long, I'll not longer waste my precious time with it. (though I admit that I'll miss Liz, because she is very very pretty).

I've also stopped watching Dollhouse. Dollhouse, to my surprise, is actually shaping up to become a really good show. And yet, it still makes me go "Why should I care?". I'm just not interested in it, and, since I have about an hour at home every day, I'd rather spent it watching reruns of Supernatural than watching a show which has a basic premise that I really don't care about. Good luck, Dollhouse, you deserve it.

(I'm also no longer watching The Sarah Connor Chronicles, because they are OVER, so not longer watching is really not my choice and it makes me cry and cry and cry. Still haven't seen the last ep yet. I'm afraid it's going to be too painful.)

This leaves me with these shows on my schedule for the coming seasons:

SUPERNATURAL (OMG there's NOTHING about that show that doesn't turn me on that I don't love)

NCIS (yep, still loving it. and I'm totally deaf to the criticism some people are voicing at the moment)

Bones (cause it makes my heart happy)

The Unit (in case you forgotten, here are some reasons why I love The Unit)

Brothers&Sisters (cause you can never have enough family drama)

Desperate Housewives (seriously, there's NEVER enough drama. Plus, since I'm not emotionally involved in either DH nor BS fandom, those shows don't pressure me as much as other shows sometimes do. In other words, my heart doesn't break when they screw up. (or when they DON't screw up. I'm looking at you, SPN, cause I know you are breaking my heart on purpose).

Doctor Who (though, like with every new season of Doctor Who, I'm not so sure if I'll continue watching it right this moment. I'll be sceptical for about three eps, then I'll go back be being helplessly in love. I hope).

Eureka (someone tell me it's going to be back, please? It's like a summer holiday show. It always seems to be sunny in Eureka. )

Leverage (what can I say, it's grown on me)

Torchwood (maybe. I was all over it in season 1, and then, sometime in season 2, I noticed that I actually cannot stand John Barrowman. I'm sure it'll pass, because I used to think he was made of awesome. I wonder how that happened.)

That may seem like a lot of shows, but it's actually fewer than I've watched in years. So, are there any good new shows I should be watching. Or good older ones that I'm missing (here's your chance to make up for the fact that none of you told me how absolutely terrifyingly perfect the Sarah Connor Chronicles are, which I had to find out all for myself after I read an article in Der Spiegel! Talk about embarrassing)

PIMP ME, please-.

I'm spending the evening stuffing myself with Doctor/Rose fic. And when I say stuffing, I mean that I'll read anything I can find until it comes pouring out of my eyes and ears. If you have recs, or even just places to find fic, please tell me?

Cause Doctor/Rose fic makes my life better.Yes it does.

(XF guy didn't show, btw. *sigh*)
No details yet, just love. Are they really expecting us to wait until christmas for the next Doctor Who?

That's just wrong. They can't make us wait so long. I'm sure there is a law against this somewhere. And why are those DVDs so ridiculously expensive? Isn't there a law against that, too?

I was going to end this entry here, but then I chose my icon and OMG THE LOVE I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH ALL THIS LOVE WHEN THERE IS NO NEW DOCTOR!
*is helpless*

My Top Ten Shows of 2006

This was a hard decision, because I think that other seasons, particularly season 2 of NCIS was a lot better than the current season. But I still enjoy the hell of the show, and I love them for never neglecting the characters, always revealing something more, funny, absurd, personal,about them. And compared with The Unit, which made second place, I still love NCIS more. It's not a rational decision, it comes from the heart.

2. The Unit
I love this show so much. The shows keeps getting better and better, even though they continue to hint at things and then not tell us, which drives me insane. It helped, of course, that 2006 was even more The Bob! show than before, but even apart from that, I loved each and every episode. Well, except for the season 2 opener. I'm still not over the shock.

3. Stargate
Okay, so it's not the show we knew and loved all these years anymore. But it's still a good show, and there are still aliens and Stargates and spaceships, combined with action, humour and our favourite characters: Daniel, Sam, Teal'c and surprisingly also Vala and Cameron, who have really grown on me. Vala, because she is cute, Cameron, because of his huge crush on the whole team and the wa he worships them with practically everything he does. Of course, you gotta wonder if they ever taught him what it means to be in command, but I like it when he watches SG-1 play with alien toys, not even trying to be in charge. And let's not forget that there is still Jack to love, who is sitting in Washington pretending that being without Daniel doesn't break his heart every day. It's so dramatic.
*loves SG-1*

4. Numb3rs
Had I made this list after two episodes into the new season, Numb3rs would have made the first place. I still can't believe how good the two-part season opener was. I love this show very much and they did some really great things with some of my favourite characters this year, but it continues to lose points with its "One outstanding, one boring episode" policy. Just throw out the boring plots this year, please?

5. Smith
This was such a great show! It would have made #1, if it hadn't been cancelled so brutally after 3 episodes. What a great , great show. My heart's broken. BROKEN!

6. Veronica Mars
Judging purely from how much I'm looking forward to shows every week, Veronica Mars is at least #6. I wasn't happy with everything that happened this year, but it wasn't unhappiness from a TV POV, it was a personal unhappiness: some things I wasn't so interested in, some I found stupid. And that, given that the show is now set in college, is quite clever, really, because a college show could not be realistic if I were interested in everything that happened in it. I'm just too old for that. But overall, Veronica Mars continues to grow up with its characters, who are still some of the most human and real characters on TV. And the scene with Veronica and the phone in the cafeteria (I'm not going into details to avoid spoilers) is one of my favourite TV moments ever.

7. Doctor Who
I never expected to love the "new" Doctor so much, but I did. I loved the show, I loved the Doctor, I LOVED Rose, and then they made me cry, so now I don't think I'm ever going to love them again as much as I did this season, but I will also never forget how much I loved them.

8. Bones
Surprise! Yes, I enjoyed Bones quite a lot last year. It has gotten much better since the first season and all the characters are just..loveable. Even the Bones equivalent of Madame Director.

9. Eureka
Well, that was fun. ;-) No, really, this is the only thing I can say: fun. It's not a great, innovative show, but it is well-made fun with some nice ideas and sympathic characters. I can't remember one episode that disappointed me.

10. Torchwood
I already said once that I love Torchwood because it is clumsy, not despite of it. And yes, maybe I enjoyed parts of Torchwood more than Bones or Eureka, but parts of it were also horrible, that's what it is only #10. Bones and Eureka were more consistent, even though they didn't have the highlights Torchwood has. It's a close race. I think it was episode 11 of Torchwood that gave the decision. Still, love the show and its clumsiness.

Shows that almost made it into the Top Ten )

Other shows that I watched, that I didn't make it anywhere near the Top Ten )

Most Disappointing Shows of 2006 )

I think that's it. Quite a lot of shows, I know, but it's not like there was a new episode of each show every week, and besides, I was without work for half of the year. What's your excuse? ;-)
OMG! I just realized that Sam Tyler from Life on Mars must be Rose's uncle, the brother of her father and she might even walk into him in 1973, provided he is really there, and...and... all sorts of things could happen!
*gasps for breath*

How, I ask, do the British manage to make their TV shows so bloody brilliant?

Am I the only one who hears a little voice saying "Moisturize me, moisturize me!" when they put on their moisturizer in the morning?
I'll let you in on a secret.

There's this little, well, not so little really, island, somewhere in the North Sea, just west of Europe. The rest of Europe, that is. It's called Great Britain. Bad weather and bad food, you know how it is. However, that is really just a camouflage.

This little island is full of time lords.

Really though. (*g*)

They produce that TV series, just an attempt to hide their secret behind the truth. It's a series about a time lord, as if it were fiction, which we know it isn't. Because the episodes are 45 minutes long, or maybe 43, but who's counting. And when I watch them, 43 minutes pass on my watch. It is 43 minutes later when I finish an ep than it was when the ep started.

But, and here's the time lord trick they are trying to hide: the episodes are really just 15 minutes long. Start, watch, over. Can't be more than 15 minutes. There is NO way they are really 43 minutes long, no matter what my watch says because there isn't ENOUGH Doctor who inbetween start and end of the episode. Really. There should be more.

The Doctor dances!


You know, these lj entries should come with sound. Okay, so that would be terribly annoying with 20 different sounds per friends page, but sure they could make an exception for the Doctor?

Sorry, gotta watch more, cannot respond to your comments. I know, I know, you tried to warn me. But did I listen?


I should really go looking for an icon. As soon as I'm done watching and dancing and squeeeing and crushing on Rose. See ya!

Edited: I'm freezing over here, but I forgot to set my current mood icon. And yet, there it is, saying "cold". I'm not kidding, I really didn't change it. Now that's kind of weird. And a bit scary.
*waits for mmod icon to ask for its Mummy.*
I think I better accept that I won't be able to download another Doctor Who ep tonight. Damn, this sleeping is really such a waste of time. Wouldn't it be nicer if we could just sleep when we wanted to, not when we have to? Evolution still has a long way to go.

Last week I found out that there is a function that let's lj send you your own comments. And since I'm sure you were all just waiting to for this information, I can now tell you that I've posted exactly 100 comments in the last five days. That's 20 per day, a bit less than one per hour. If I didn't sleep, that is (here we are again).

Also, there are now 200 people who have friended me,and frankly, I find this more than scary. I cannot be that entertaining, so I must be that freaky, which, well, that's alright with me too. Whatever floats your boat. So, hello you new people, I hope you are having fun. Write me some NCIS fic, will you? *g*

*looks at emule again*

Nope, still 3% to go. Guess I'll have to get up early and watch the ep before work. Ugh, work. I hate Mondays.

I mean, literally. Cause I seem to have missed that particular part of pop culture, and I know nothing about him. Or the series.

I just know that I finally gave in and downloaded a few eps, and I have been watching them twice! till yesterday. Welll, not all of them, just the first two, and I'm going to watch the fourth one again now, if no one tells me where to find the fic. And where to find information about the show, though I guess I'll wait with that until I've seen some more eps, don't want to get too spoiled. Good thing those eps are downloading so fast, guess I'm not the only one who suffers from instant addiction? Mind you, I don't need another show, not as long as I only have 50 icons. And really, I'm not going to get attracted to a middle-aged british guy with bad teeth, right? Oh no, not me, I'm all here for the cute blonde, she said.

I'm so doomed.
