I have survived my first year of grad school... which still surprises me. And I haven't flunked out, which is also of the good, but we'll see how next year, which will be even more challenging, goes. But for now, I'm pretending it doesn't exist...

and instead, y'know what does? TELEVISION! MOVIES! NOVELS THAT ARE FUN TO READ!

Gah so excited! Even though a good number of my dvds are left at school, and not at home. Oops. We'll see how it goes though... Burn Notice and Leverage are coming back!! I can't wait. And I should probably suck it up and TRY to watch the newest Doctor Who, which I've DVRed, but I'm kind of dreading it.

So far, I've just been sleeping and recuperating and I finally saw "Up" last night, which made me cry like 900 times. I don't know how I would take my niece and nephew to see it... not that they could understand it now. Though my niece has started walking! They're coming in a couple of weeks so that'll be fun as well. And exhausting. They're more tiring than school.

Anyways, I guess this is my "Yay, Summer!" post... I've missed LJ.

Give the new Doctor a try, I didn't think I'd like him but I do, a lot. And Amy is good. And yay for one year down!

Yay indeed! I'm glad to hear that you like Eleven and Amy. I think I will have to give them a try.

Dreading something is usually a good reason not to watch/read it.

True. But it could be because I am really attached to Rose and Donna, and I was never super invested in the Doctor. Plus, my dislike of Moffat makes me skeptical of the show and his constant denigrating of Rose... and women. Ugh.

But I've heard Amy is good...

dislike of Moffat

Which is kind of essential not to have if one wants to watch something he writes, no?

Congratulations for surviving the year! So fantastic you'll be free to enjoy the new Burn Notice and Leverage. :D

I'm super excited! I really cannot wait for Leverage. I need to know what's going to happen... sigh.

Btw, what'd you think of the Good Wife finale? I'm not sure if you posted on it, because I've been off LJ lately.

I really did like it for the most part, though I ranted a bit about a couple of things. Just, I really hope they deal with the Alicia/Will/Peter triangle of doom early next season because it feels like it's dragging on a bit too long.

Anyway, I did like the episode. Best opening ever with all the sneaking in the back entrance stuff, and then the client who ends up being guilty of murder, and almost getting away with it, if not for Kalinda. I'm interested to see if the hints of police corruption end up affecting Kalinda next season. I really hope Det. Burton is corrupt. :P

Yes, the triangle is definitely dragging on, and the whole "cliffhanger" ending was kind of lame. I really did like Alicia calling Will out and saying that romance is fine and all, but she needs a plan. Is there a particular resolution you're hoping for?

I'm just hoping for more Kalinda/Alicia awesomeness. Those two make the show for me, and their friendship is fantastic. But I also hope Det. Burton is corrupt; I also had big problems with how they've handled Kalinda's sexuality. Like she can kiss the gross detective in public, but the FBI agent has to be behind a door? Lame.

Yeah, not so much with the cliffhanger given the title of the show, eh?

Is there a particular resolution you're hoping for?
Hmmm, I guess I'm hoping for "neither", but I'm not expecting that to happen. :P I guess I'd just like to see Alicia actively choose something, whether it's Peter or Will. (Or neither. Pick neither, Alicia!). Right now it feels like she's just going along with the status quo, eventhough it seems like she doesn't want to play the role of political wife anymore. I really hope they address that. Such a huge decision deserves more than a hurried conversation before Peter's press conference!

I'm with you on mostly wanting more Alicia/Kalinda awesomeness next season. Their friendship and the law office shennanighans are what made me fall for the show in the first place. Hopefully that won't get shunted to the side.

Omg, the kissing behind the door was so ridiculous. The show runners have said it's because they want Kalinda to be "mysterious". *eyeroll* So lame.

Yay, you! Congrats! The internets missed you. :D I cannot wait for Burn Notice and Leverage. Is it time yet? What about now?

I'm ready! Let's start it now! Okay, USA and TNT? We should totally run the world... or at least, tv programming.

Btw, totally excited about catching up on your fic... even though it tends to break my heart a bit.

I'm doing a bit of a rewatch of the end of season 3 of BN with katcorvi right now as I finally convinced her to start watching and got her addicted. Hee!

Ha, yeah, not many happy fics posted by me lately. Not much at all posted by me lately, come to think of it. Apparently I can't write fic in less than 100 page increments now. Argh.
