So I am alive... but I've been busy with the procrastinating from moving, and thereby getting sucked into Merlin (yes, ANOTHER show) and rewatching VMars (for which I totally blame my best friend who thought we should watch it  again. Gah.) So yes, watching tv while I debate what to pack clearly makes me a very busy girl. Hee.

But y'know what's lovely about fandom? Is how they all intersect at the most unexpected of intervals. For example, an author I used to read a lot in an entirely different fandom now writes awesome Merlin fic... which, btw, isn't by any means the best written show (or all that well written in terms of plots OR special effects which seriously are rather stupid, like worse than Doctor Who, because whenever they fight a monster, it does NOT look like they ever hit it with the damn sword) but is fun, because of the characters and their chemistry with one another. 

Meanwhile, I would really like it if my DVR would stop erasing things on its own. It has plenty of space -- 55 hours! -- yet keeps erasing things that are even protected. I know that means i should suck it up and call and get it fixed and/or replaced, but... I have stuff saved on there. Sigh.

I was so happy to watch Leverage again, even though I think my excitement possibly overshadowed the ep which was good... but not great. It felt a little like "We've done this before," and not quite exactly what I wanted. It felt kind of clunky plot-wise and the writing didn't seem as smooth. But it's okay because my team is back together! (I will really forgive so much for a show if the characters are good and have fantastic chemistry). Btw, Nate is suddenly sober?!? How'd that happen? It seems like a big thing for him to do on his own. But I love Hardison looking for Parker, and her wearing a nun's habit and the whole thing where no one can assume that it's for an actual job, because she might just be nuts enough to wear it for fun... and Sophie has a boyfriend! I'm very excited for her.

As for In Plain Sight, I love Mary even more than before. Because her saying no to Rafe before wasn't about her "daddy issues" but because she knows how huge a commitment marriage is and when she commits? She damn well commits. That woman is loyal to a fault, as evidenced by her putting up with her own family for so long. While I enjoy Rafe as the hot boytoy, I'm glad that they'll give him something more to do on the show, and that he's changed so much from last season, where much of his frustration seemed to be at Mary for not being a "normal" girl.

Packing is not much fun.

I've had issues with my DVR erasing things. It does this weird thing where it will erase stuff and bring back shows that were already erased - but not really - just the titles - the shows will say not available.

I tried Merlin once, but haven't had a chance to try it again. I may have to try it again. :)
