New TV season, yay!

So, I can't wait to see the second ep of the new Doctor Who season (stuck at my parents atm with horrible internet access). I was so happy that it finally returned even though I have to say that I thought the season premiere was a bit mediocre. But that's probably just my problem with the Daleks, I usually can't shake this 'been there, done that' feeling when they show up. Hm. But Dinosaurs on a spaceship? Picture me happy.

I also tried out this new Sherlock Holmes in New York show, 'Elementary' it's called I believe. I'm not sure about it yet. I'm not to thrilled about Joan Watson, I've never really gotten the whole gender swap thing, not even in fic. Also, I can't shake the feeling that the Sherlock actor is going for a mix of RDJ and Benedict Cumberbatch and it kind of rubs me the wrong way. On the other hand: More Sherlock Holmes can't hurt, can it?

I'm still blown away by Sean's performance in 'Accused' of course and can't get over how very very brilliant he was. I still don't even know where to begin.

Years late, I also finally gotten around to watching season 1-7 of The West Wing and now that I am through I am a bit bummed that there won't be any new brilliant C.J., snarky Toby or oh-so-arrogant Josh on my telly anymore. Seems I have to start watching all over again.

Vaguely TV-related (and since it also has Bradley Whitford in it): Has anyone seen the new Joss Whedon (and Drew Goddart) film yet? I'm a bit torn whether to go and watch it in the theatres. I was so disappointed with 'Avengers' and still am, so maybe I should better wait till it's out on DVD so I can watch and potentially blasphemously dislike it in private?

Now dropping the whole TV-related thing: I'm going to Berlin next week and to Gdansk a couple of weeks later. Anyone want a postcard :)?

And last but not least: I want to WRITE stuff and once again can't seem to find the inner calm to get to it. As far as 'playground universe creating' goes, the Rich Blokes AU is pretty much up and running but apparently my brain can't handle 'stealing crime plots' as a part-time job which is a bit of a bummer. And after spending a good deal of the summer reading tons and tons of 'Sherlock' fic I can't even get around _reading_ fic atm, let alone writing anything. It makes me twitchy.

Finished another one. At first I tried one with Eleven but I wasn't happy with the finished thing so I started all over again with my fav Doctor :). Hope you like it!

... otherwise I'd already have, like, four TARDISes tattooed on various places on my body. Every time I watch this show I am SO IN LOVE with it that a spinning Police Box on my hipbone seems like a splendid idea.

Eleven things I loved about 601 and 6.02 )

I finally got around to watching "Vincent and the Doctor" and my God, how do I love this show? So, so much is the answer. And if there was ever any doubt whether Matt could do it - he's such a wonderful, wonderful Doctor.

Also, I now desperately want to have Van Gogh prints for my living room, preferably with the Tardis somewhere in them :).

I just got the rest of the "Boston Legal" seasons on DVD (which are terribly cheap on amazon UK just fyi :)) - and I just have to say that aside from the unique cases, great speeches and the amazing rest of the cast (Candice Bergen first and foremost) I don't think there is any character on television as complex and beautifully fucked as Alan, nor is there any other friendship that touches me as much as his and Denny's. I just love this show so much.

Anyone with me :)?

In other TV related news: I do adore the new Doctor (and his suspenders) even if last Saturday's eps was one of the weirder sort (really, fishalienvampires?!) and while I'm not too happy regarding the current Bones/Booth situation I am however rather happy with the other stuff that happend in last week's ep. (Also, speaking of Boreanaz - I think it's really vital that he does a show in which he co-stars with Marsters (again) and definitely Ian Somerhalder. Just saying.)

Also, why isn't it Tuesday already? I want my Gleeeee (preferably with ridiculous amounts of Puck and Finn and Santana and Brittany in it) and my NCIS:LA (oh, Sam and G how much I love thee).

In conclusion: I am watching way too much telly.

The happiest of happy birthdays to [ profile] amygirl ! - Darling, I hope you have a fabulous day (with lots of time for fandom related indulgence!) and lookit, I brought three, no one, no three guests to your party who all dressed up for the occasion (esp. Eleven, obviously) and would love a piece of banana flavoured birthday cake! Love you, sweetness!

I still haven't shaken the holiday's laziness and still haven't transfered my London pics from my camera to my laptop (so no pics today) BUT I did see "Clash of the Titans" in London and just remembered that I wanted to babble about it :).

Clash of the Titans - spoilers; also Doctor Who and Bones, latest eps )

Random shit

Again, mostly random observations here (but I promise there will be sexficpost tomorrow :)):

#1 - Finally watched the Doctor Who Christmas Special and actually quite liked it. Always difficult to do these in-between-companion ones, but this was quite a good solution, even if the villians annoyed me a bit (as they usually do).

#2 - Am leaning towards Sean/Sala/Karl for [ profile] seans_50 atm. Is there anyone who'd volunteer to beta something like that for me? Not that I've acutally written a word so far or anything, I thought I might ask first :).

#3 - Watched the third season of "Bones" as finally my DVDs arrived and I swear, the characterisation in that show and specifically the partnership of Bones and Booth makes me so very happy I could fangirl the hell out of stupid Boreanaz's ass.

#4 - Have still a little bit of a lit-crush on Sean Astin (thanks for holding my hand throughout it, [ profile] ireth06 *g*. He has a lovely way with words and his descriptions are so very neat in phrasing, I feel like I have to share:

Sean Astin and spot-on-ness )

#5 - [ profile] giselleslash just made a post in her LJ, starting a sort of song-character meme that I like a lot and will corrupt once I actually get around to listing all the songs that keep getting stuck in my head when I write Paint. For now, my song of choice is Anything you can do (I can do better) (this version is sung by John Barrowman, which doesn't hurt either) and the corresponding characters to that are (obviously) Spike and Angel :).

Anything you can do (I can do better) )

#6 - The nominations for the [ profile] slashy_oscars are open and seriously, years blurr and I almost nominated a fic that wasn't written in 2008. Thrice. So, to say it with Entourage's Turtle (LOVE that show): My vote can totally be bought. I just gotta know what to vote for/nominate ;). Any nudges?

#7 - In case anyone but me listens to podfics - After the tone by [ profile] kashmir1 is a really good one. Like most of them, it is J2, it's an AU and quite well written and the reader's voice is lovely. I had a nice afternoon cleaning my flat to this story ;).
