3x08 - The Wolf-Shaped Bullet Rambling spoilers after the cut )

Now, can I get some recommendations for some feel good shows? I need to stock up on it, since Game of Thrones is going to air soon and you know that'll be nothing but wall to wall misery.
Pick 4 TV shows you like (I'm going with shows that are currently airing)

1. Community
2. Being Human (UK version, please and thank you)
3. V
4. Pretty Little Liars

Q and A time )


I fear I'm fighting a losing battle here, but I thought it was worth a shot posting this plea for help. In case anyone isn't aware, we are in the midst of ~*~Fandom March Madness~*~ and my girl Annie has made it to the second round.

LET'S GET HER TO THE SWEET SIXTEEN.

DO IT.
So I randomly decided to watch the new SyFy version of Being Human last night. It was a very odd experience. I can't even objectively say whether it was good or bad because I just felt so strange about the whole thing. Like, I knew the story and the characters but it was all taking place in some kind of alternate universe where Mitchell isn't Irish and that's unacceptable.

Though I was pretty amused by the posts I saw on tumblr regarding it. Spoilers for whatever episode aired last night (1x05 I think? And therefor the first season of the British series as well). This was the episode where it was revealed how Danny (Owen) killed Sally (Annie) by pushing her down the stairs because he's an abusive ass. And everyone on tumblr was like :O but I was like... yeah, I knew that. I actually think it would be interesting to watch this because they're going to have to spread the story out into the much longer episode count of American series and more Being Human is always a good thing. But, it's so distracting having different actors that I don't know if I would be able to do it. I just adore the other cast so much.

For good measure, have a pic of Aidan Turner. CLICK ME.

Speaking of other cast members, I watched a clip from the original pilot for the BBC series because I've seen a couple people on LJ and tumblr mention their preference for the original Mitchell. I gotta say, at least in the clip I saw, I was kinda creeped out by him? I'm sure a lot of this is that I've watched Aidan Turner in the role for 2 1/2 series, and usually whoever you know first is your preference (like with the US remake), but the character is a lot warmer than I think they originally wrote him. Annie is certainly a lot less testy.

One thing that amused me about the US version was that Bishop (the Herrick character) is played by Mark Pellegrino, who I only know from Lost where he played Jacob. So, when I see him onscreen being a vampire... I just see Jacob being a vampire. But, Jacob was always kind of a dick, so now he's just more upfront about it?

I'm not cutting this because it's hilarious and everyone should read it (courtesy of @nedroid)

Spent the weekend getting stuff together for my trip to Spain. Leaving in 8 days! I'm pretty excited!

I also spent most of Sunday trying to fix my work laptop. It started going crazy slow and in a fit of uninstalling programs I accidentally deleted my audio driver. That was fun (read: painful) to fix. But I DID IT, because I'm AWESOME. I also fixed some registry errors and defraged the harddrive. It's not going to win any sprints anytime soon, but at least Photoshop has stopped shutting down whenever I try to edit text. That wasn't fun (read: productive).

While troubleshooting issues I also watched a few more episodes of SPEC which is just fantastic. I'm building up an archive of all the faces Toda Erika makes so I can compile a giant picspam. She's great as Toma. The show is so much fun.

I also watched the fourth episode of Being Human. And... I have thoughts.

I need to find some Being Human icons, for real.

Random football talk: I hope the Packers win tonight. Not because I'm a fan, but because I hate the Steelers with the passion of a thousand suns.

It's come to my attention that I need to get a library card. It's been years since I had one (since I moved) and that is unacceptable. There is no need for me to be spending money on books when I can just borrow them for FREE. I need to start reading again, my brain is turning into goo just like they talk about on the hulu commercials.  The DMV is also on my to-do list this weekend.  I need to change the address on my license, then I will find the nearest library branch and start trying to reclaim some brain cells

BUT BACK TO TV.

Yesterday I started Being Human a short BBC series about a vampire, werewolf, and ghost living together. I'm only an episode and a half in, but I think I'll probably love it. I've enjoyed it up to this point - all the characters are interesting and have distinct personalities. Plus, the vampire? SUPER ATTRACTIVE:

Double plus? IRISH.

I also watched the first episode of Who Are You? because ever since I read the description I've wanted to watch it, though I'm not sure why.  I had been determined not to put more than three dramas on my plate at a time but this kept pushing its way back into my brain.  It just sounded so cute, so of course the first episode made me cry BUCKETS.  I supposed the had to kill they dad if the whole premise of the show (he takes over some kid's body to communicate with his daughter) was going to work, but did we really need that super extended grieving sequence?  I almost made it all the way through but ended up breaking down finally.  The preview for episode 2 looks far more fun and enjoyable, which is what I had been expecting.
