Criminal Minds - Closing time

Yes, yes. I admit it. Hotch is cute (if, yes Hotch, you called it yourself), and Beth is... well. Beth.

But please, please, for the love of every deity in existence, please tell me that I'm not the only woman who calls foul on Beth's dress at the end there? Who the heck dresses like that for a quiet night at home? If she hadn't been surprised at Hotch's appearance, if he'd called ahead or something, yes. But on an average night when your might-be-boyfriend is ostensibly at the other end of the country chasing a serial-killer? Really?

So... I see only two options. Either the serial killer's capture was national news (which, yeah. No, I don't buy that), or Beth is keeping an eye on Californian news to keep track of her man and dressed up on the off chance that a) they flew back that evening and b) he'd move up their date.

Which, really? Brings me back to scary near-stalker status. I mean, I get being in love and finding every little thing he does absolutely fascinating, but... yeah. It still bugs me.

Criminal minds - Hotch and Beth

So... I'm not a huge fan of Hotch and Beth. And then I thought, after watching the latest episode - hey, what if Jack doesn't like Beth? And because we can't have Jack talking to Hotch about it, let's stuff in Spencer as the middle-man.

Cue some 1200 words of angst and heartbreak between Jack and Spencer. And an ending that kind of begs for a second story.

Really, CM? Really? I should just take the plunge and rename you Criminal Plotbunnies! :-D

Reid gets an invitation to his 20th high-school reunion. Given his history he isn't so sure he wants to go. His lover helps him make up his mind.

Read it at my fic journal here.

Stargate Universe

Well. This is the third time I try to watch SG-U, and to my great surprise it's actually not as terrible as I remembered.

Okay. It's still terrible, just not unwatchable any more. And I've just had a couple of eps where Daniel and Jack guests, so that helped. Damn, I've missed RDA's ability to do some small thing, completely unrelated to the scene, that makes it all about 15 times more enjoyable to watch.

If there's one thing about SG-U, it is that it's so God damned predictable. Every single time something unexpected happens, it's bad. Every single time something new happens, it's worse. Every episode is pretty much a compilation of; "Okay, they're screwed. How can we make it worse?"

It gets pretty tiresome over time. :-/

ETA: I also suspect I woukd care more about the big season 1 cliffhanger where everyone's in peril, if this hadn't been standard fare in every freaking episode all season through. Really.

Homeland, NCIS, White collar and Grimm

Yep. That's a mouthful.

Homeland first. I would like to like the show. There are some really good actors, and the story is mildly interesting, but I'm not far enough removed from discovering just how Mandy Patinkin walked out on Criminal Minds that I can be even remotely sanguine about his presence in Homeland. He's good. He's really, really good, but how any showrunner can take a chance on him after pulling something like that not once, but twice in his career? Yeah. I don't get it.

NCIS. I expected to like '200', and I suppose I did. Sure, it felt unbalanced, and every time we cut back to the case of the day, I needed a minute to reorient myself. And a couple of scenes were complete letdowns, as far as I was concerned. But... there was good stuff, as well, and Mark Harmon is an amazing actor.

White Collar. My new crack. I adore that show so much, and it's brilliant antidote to the darkness of Criminal Minds. Also? Neal and Peter are probably the gayest leading men I've seen since SG-A. Seriously. And El. Oh, how I adore El. El and Peter is a thing of beauty. A functional marriage between two strong, smart adults. So awesome it hurts.

Grimm. Yeah. I like it; I like the style, I like the banter, I like the poor sergeant who is their snarky go-to-guy. I love the even more snarky blutbad go-to-guy. But, dear God, 10 episodes in and I'm wondering if Portland Oregon is seriously the city with no professional women. The main characters are all guys. Pretty much the only woman you see on a semi-permanent basis is the girlfriend. And you don't see her a lot, and she hardly ever gets to be awesome. I miss women!

The Incredible Hulk

Wow. I feel like I need to get a testosterone-antidote or something. Especially after seeing Captain America, who excelled by actually having a non-alpha male as the super-powered hero. Banner is Alpha. The General is Alpha. His nemesis, Blonsky, is Alpha. It's a freaking testosterone-battle to see who has the biggest balls. Blech!

In related news, I just could *not* look at Blonsky pre-Hulking and not see that guy from Lie To Me. Made for a rather... surreal introduction.

Pretty much I feel the same as I did after watching the first Hulk. As if the fact that 'hulk' in my native language means 'sob'. Yes. I do want to cry about how bad that was... :-(

White Collar 3x12

AKA - the 'Oh Boys!'-episde.

Don't read on if you don't want spoilers!Collapse )

... I mentioned that I love this show, right?

Fever? And exam tomorrow?

Oh, that'll end well, I'm sure.

I have my second-to-last exam tomorrow, and I expected to do some preparations this afternoon and evening. In stead, I had a car that wouldn't start, and honked, without reprieve, for 20 minutes until the battery finally drained totally. So I spent 25 minutes waiting for the equivalent of AAA, then 15 minutes while the guy tried to figure out what was wrong and how to fix it so I could actually start and drive again. And since it's right around freezing, here, and there was a pretty strong wind blowing... well. I can guess why I have a fever, now.

Well. As long as I can wake up tomorrow and not feel too miserable, I'll call that a win. Oh, and my car will start. Oh, and I actually pass this exam.

... jeez. I don't ask for much, do I? ;-)


Move complete

So... my transfer to http://dhae-knight-1.dreamwidth.org/ is now complete, and aside from a little housekeeping, I'm very happy about how it looks.

Like I said, I'll keep this journal (although downgrade it to free), so you won't get rid of me entirely, but I'll probably be here more rarely, since I have to turn on my computer to be able to comment.

Fair warning - I'll be leaving

So... Since Livejournal's latest update pretty much broke commenting from an iPad, which is what I use primarily for my internet-access these days, I've reconsidered my plans to buy a paid account here, and decided to spend my money on Dreamwidth in stead.

It'll take a few weeks for me to move everything, and I'll be keeping my free account here, if only to keep track of whoever aren't on Dreamwidth, but with their community-import going live next week, I foresee a lot of communities at least backing up to DW.

So if anybody reading my journal here wants to follow me over there, my name is Dhae_knight_1 (to keep it apart from my fic-journal, which is Dhae_knight). Drop me a line with your username on DW if you've got one - I'd love to keep following as many of my LJ friends as I can. :-)

(Also, Dreamwidth has open account creation at the moment, and they run a friendly, helpful ship, so if you're ever going to change from LJ, please consider them. If you miss open account creation, there a places where you can get an invite code for the price of asking.)



Look me up!
