Have watched Torchwood. spoilers for TW 2x01 )

BTW, for those who'd prefer not to see such things, the trailer at the end is not for the next episode, it's for a lot of episodes (or the whole rest of the season). Wasn't expecting that. On the other hand hahahahahahahaha omg look who's appearing on Torchwood )

I have just finished watching the final episode of Buffy. My sister and I probably should've waited and gotten a better quality copy (this was crap, to put it mildly), but I just couldn't wait.

Someone, somewhere on lj, was using an icon that turned out to be a spoiler. If I find them, *smackdown*.

Apart from that - emotional reaction, no actual spoilers )

I did it!

It involved a lot of sitting around on my ass, and occasional lapses in interest and concentration, but I've not only finished S4 of Angel, but I'm up to date with Buffy as well.

Word to the wise - anyone who spoils me for the finale is *deadmeat*.

This icon isn't terribly appropriate at this point, but its my only Buffyverse one :)

Well, up to half way through 4.17 "Inside Out", which is where I am.

Those unfortunates ([livejournal.com profile] hnix, for one) who have heard me rant on and on (and on...) about how much I loathed where S3 of Angel went, and what they did to the characters, knows I had some serious issues with the show. S4 has been ok, but only really started to kick into gear once they started to explain some of my problems, exactly how I wanted them to!

The S3 dvds of Angel are being released in March, and they've got audio commentary for 'Billy", "Lullaby" and "Waiting in the Wings".

"Billy" is vile, "Waiting in the Wings" is one of the single worst episode of Angel or Buffy ever, and I can't even remember "Lullaby", but it's part of the (yawn) baby-arc.

I mean, if you're gonna try and justify and explain away your crap, try "Tomorrow". Sweet lord, people. I don't know about the other seasons of Angel, but on the Buffy dvds, they tend to do commentarie on the GOOD episodes. I know that's hard with S3, but you could at least try,

The other night, I was trying to catch up on some my Smallville viewing. While watching "Red", I think my gaydar broke.

I'll admit I'm incapable of watching this show without slash-tinted goggles, but there are some scenes to which I believe "Lex wants Clark and Clark wants Lex" is the only possible interpretation. If anyone can think of another possible spin on the "$2000 coat" and "penthouse" conversations, please let me know :)

And Chloe's behaviour in "Lineage" has probably cause me to lose any interest in, or liking for, her ever again. Or until I forget.

Really enjoyed the last few eps of the season, and overall, I give a thumbs up to S6. Am kinda looking forward to the finale for Angel, it sounds craptacular and mucho worthy for mocking. Came across a brilliant post on TWoP of something Joss Whedon posted about S7 of Buffy (some spoilers for finale).

Why I still love Joss )

"Buffy" was good this week, Willow and Tara were absolutely adorable (which is possibly without being saccharine, apparently a lesson the "Angel" writers haven't learnt).

"The West Wing" was very good, though I cringed through some of Sam's stuff (painful, but not in a crappy way), but was happy he got screen time.

"Angel" was better than last week. Which is damning with faint praise. My sister is probably going to refuse to watch it with me anymore, due to my stream of abuse directed at most of the characters. Everyone but Wesley and Groo are on my shit list. Even Lilah because )

(cause no one has done that before, right? *g*)

..."Angel" crap, "Buffy" pretty (good, that it).

Though at least with all the ffwding I did, it didn't take me too long to watch "Double or Nothing".

QAF US...I'll give it a bit of time. Maybe once they stop remaking the UK version and strike out on their own it'll improve. Brian Kinsey is no Stuart Alan Jones though, that's for sure.

...but I really wish they'd hurry up and have something happen on "Angel".

Loyalty )

Because I'm very disappointed with Gunn at the moment. Not any of Wesley's business, my ass. The end of the episode was good, the rest was kind of lame.

But I was cheered up, because the West Wing episode rocked! Good use of all the characters, some favourite recurring characters popping up, good characterisation, interesting plots.

Of course, now that WW has gotten good again, there's 4 weeks with no new eps (soccer then tennis). Grrrrr.

Ok, I'm very close to giving up on "Angel". Watching a once-favourite show shouldn't make me disappointed and depressed. Am considering going and reading spoilers to see if there's any reason to stick around.

On the bright side, West Wing was quite enjoyable. My snarkier version of the 4 words - Fitzwallace is a Republican.

My sister's been rewatching some S2 Buffy. Oz, OldStyle!Cordelia, Angelus, and Baby!Spike. No, seriously, JM looks so young and fresh-faced, I could just eat him up with a spoon.

Buffy was pretty good last night, though the past few episodes have quite explained the references I'd seen to UPN not having Standards and Practices *g*. Really quite enjoying this season.

Six Feet Under was great. It's such an...intimate show. Great cast with great writing and filming. Powerful stuff.

On issues of betraying trust, invading privacy, and double standards.

Spoilers for Zero )

Sorry to mis-use Papa Luthor's title, but Joss Whedon has reclaimed his god-like status, at least for now. "Once More With Feeling" rocked, and not just in the musical sense.

However, I thought that it was an extra-long ep in the US, and we were going to get a slightly cut version, but I've read the TWoP recap and the lyrics, and as far as I can tell, we saw it all. Cool.

Some spoilers for 'Once More With Feeling' )
