Watched The Walking Dead last night and time simply flew and before I knew it, the show was over when the credits rolled. It felt like only 15 minutes had passed, not 40, that's how good the show was. Don't you feel like that when you're watching a really good show?

The Amazing Race: Moscow - another fun episode. The funnest was when they had to do the synchronized swimming along with the Russia olympic team, the guys omg, esp the Nelson twins lookalikes ( or how I imagine the twins look like at the age of fifty, I haven't looked up their current pics as I want them to remain as they were in my head ). As good as the Bollywood dance during last season!

SPN 805: Blood Brothers - that was a good episode but then I don't expect anything less from Ben Edlund. Though it did feel like there were two stories, spinoffs!, going on - Sam's curtainfic and Dean hunting-with-other-people story. I'm warming up to Benny now. Didn't quite like him before because I wanted ( still do! ) him to be Castiel. Speaking of, I'm dreading the day Cas is killed off, for good this time. Not a spoiler, just me thinking the worst, so that I'd be prepared. Unlike that time when they chopped off Ned Stark's head which was a total shock. Not good for the system, that, not good at all.

Revenge - I'm dreading the end. I really do. But in a good way. And I went all fuzzy and squishy and melty-heart when Nolan said that Ems was his only friend and family. Awwwwwwwww ...

And also, Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy, MARTIN FREEMAN omg! That guy was so good that I didn't see any single hint of John Watson there. I can't wait for The Hobbit!

Still loving every minute of Revenge. Though there *have* been, maybe a couple of episodes earlier on, when I felt that S2 wasn't as good as S1, when Emily's revenge-y schemes changed from avenging her father to avenging her mother, and that felt to me like the writers not knowing how to continue with the David Clarke storyline. But all is good now!

*What* is it about Emily I wonder, that made four grown men and one woman eating out of her hands like that? She could ask any of them to do anything and they *would* do it. I might have hated her for using them the way she did if not for the fact that she has me wrapped around her little finger as well. I am so rooting for her and I'd be devastated if any of them were to betray her, especially Nolan. At one point, I thought fake!Amanda had turned against her but that was not so ( she's the one that I thought most likely to do so ).

Any thoughts?

Jennifer Jason Leigh totally creeped me out. I remember her from the movie Single White Female and I kept thinking of her as an older Hedy. Look out Victoria *inserts creepy slasher movie soundtrack* you're number one on her hit list!!

And also, Emily Thorne = Oliver Queen ( well, sort of ), with Victoria = Moira, Charlotte = Thea. While Revenge is all about the subtlety, Arrow is all bangbangbang. Oliver crosses out names from a list, Emily crosses out faces from a pic. Heheh, Oliver even has a big box to Emily's tiny one! Those two should totally compare notes!

What a perfect finale that was. Perfect.

Stay there and don't get revenge-y )

Revenge: If Nolan weren't gay, I'd totally ship him with Emily. The way he tried to get her to just let go, that just made me go awww .... wild speculations on whodunit, with spoilers to the latest episode )

Survivor season twenty-four ( omg isn't that awesome? ) premier was a wonderful surprise because I was not expecting it to air this early. I thought it'd be some time in September! And if there's Survivor there'll be The Amazing Race and sure enough TAR S20 will premier this Sunday! And I totally hyperventilated when I found out that Brandon and Rachel from The Big Brother will be one of the teams racing. I said it here and oh, I'm so glad because it means they're still together, unless they're racing as friends of course, but I think not. Needless to say, I'll be rooting for Team Branchel!

ION, thank you [ profile] tariana for the lovely v-gift, I need that little bit of cold here. It's 32C here and it's getting hotter by the hour. And thank you to the kind soul who has gifted me with the extra LJ paid time. MUCH appreciated *loves* ( Or was that from LJ? )

I enjoyed Sherlock's Scandal In Belgravia very, very much. I would have enjoyed it more if there were subtitles. I don't have any problem following, say, Downton Abbey or Merlin but Sherlock's way of talking is way too rapid for me. Anyone here know where I can download the subtitles? It's not up yet at my usual place here

And oh, Revenge, how I love you so. It feels a bit odd rooting for two ... anti-heros but I really adore Emily and Nolan. My boy has some wild ideas of his own about them, that they're actually brother and sister. He's also saying that Emily is Victoria's daughter!

some spoilers )

Two more episodes of Suits to go and I'm loving every minute of it, even Jenny ( gosh I kept typing that as Jensen ) and Rachel. Oh okay, they're maybe a weeee bit annoying but they didn't spoil the show for me. And I'm kind of intrigued as to who Mike would choose. My money is on Rachel but at this point in time, I've quite forgotten whether Rachel knew that Mike wasn't a real lawyer. Jenny knew the real Mike and they had known each other longer so that's a plus for her. And Harvey! Love him even though I'm still slightly mystified as to why he's so protective of Mike. Haha, so obviously I'm not slashing those two though I do adore them together - platonically. Much the same way I saw Dean and Castiel in the early days. Maybe because Harvey is a lot older than Mike.

Speaking of slashing, it's funny how certain pairings set off your inner slashy thoughts while others do not, to me I mean, no matter how much the rest of fandom does. I adore (BBC) Sherlock and Watson but I don't slash them. I don't slash Merlin and Arthur either but Arthur and Lancelot together made my heart beat just a little faster.

But Robb/Jon of Game of Thrones? I slashed them almost immediately the minute I saw them together. And lol, it's not the brother thing because I don't slash the Prison Break brothers or Numb3rs or Vampire Diaries. Shhh, I do slash Elladan/Elrohir and book!Faramir/Boromir. And yeah, Sam/Dean *g*

Supernatural tonight! I've no idea what it's going to be about, I'm completely spoiler-free but I saw some excitement at one of the SPN comms which I wasn't expecting, not from that quarters anyway and because they seemed to be excited, I'm ... hopeful. We'll see.

Revenge: I suppose we were told about this before but I must have missed that part or something. Why is Nolan so subservient towards Emily? He seems to be doing all she asked him to do without question. Eeeep, he's so slimy that I kept thinking that now he's going to betray her but he never did. At least not yet. I'm so afraid for Emily!

Once upon a time: I watched the pilot last night and five minutes in I was just about ready to give up ( princes and princesses talking in non-British English doesn't sound right ) but then I remember that quite a number on my flist seem to like it so I persevered and surprise, surprise, it was GOOD! I watched House 8x05 before that and Chase was there and I was just thinking of Cameron and how I missed her with Chase and there she was in Once Upon A Time, looking all blonde and pretty and just plain awesome.

And Taub's babies are beyond adorable *wibbles*

1. I just got back my computer from the shop. Sent it there for de-bugging but I'm still not happy with it. They had, what's the term, re-formatted it, installed a new anti-virus and the techinician said it was good to go. But they had also replaced my Vista Home Premium with Windows 7 and I'm not familiar with the layout and I also find it a bit slow - slower than when my computer got infected. So if I went LJ-silent in the next few days, that would mean that I've sent my computer back to the shop again.

2. Almost two-third of reading Game of Thrones and the one thing that I really want to know is Who Was Jon Snow's Mother? speculation, might be spoilery as I don't think it was mentioned anywhere in the show )

3. Revenge - A question )

4. One thing that kind of bothers me a little in Terra Nova. The humans are on dinosaurial territory and sometimes they act as if they didn't know that the dinosaurs were dangerous. And, how to say this, they're the newcomers there and a lot of the time they made it seem like the dinousaurs were the intruders! Still watching the show though, just not that excited about it.
