TV I’m wasting my time on: past, present...future? Get ready – THERE’S A LOT OF IT.

I am also watching the good wife, 30 rock, once upon a time (why am I still watching this???), and am looking forward to the third series of miranda.

However, despite the ridiculous amount of tv I manage to watch every week, what’s been taking up most of my attention is an entertainment affair I’ve been having with a little genre called Bollywood. I entered this phase late in the summer, and am somehow still in it. I – don’t know how else to explain it. If I’m watching a movie, best bet is that it’s in Hindi. I really have no way to explain this. BUT, I’m feeling inspired to create a post including all my personal highlights regarding this latest obsession, so there’s 50/50 shot of my actually doing it.

Maybe 60/40.

So I've been MIA from LJ for months, I've got a shit-ton of real-life stuff going on, and what is it that I'm posting about? Freaking Dan and Blair from fucking gossip girl - ngl, they've taken over my life at the moment. And what did I do with the precious little free time that I have (that should have been spent on doing work for my masters)? I made a goddamn video, that's what I did.

What is my life?

I know since I’ve been absent for so long that everyone’s very interested in what it is I’m watching right now (everyone who remembers me, that is – probably all 3 of you). But I’m posting this anyway! Because I feel like gushing again! So here I go!

So yeah, there are others I'm sure I've forgotten (like up all night, revenge, law & order: uk, and newly finished shows like doctor who, torchwood: miracle day, suits and necessary roughness) that I've been attempting to juggle as well ( I also intend on watching the hour and catching up on luther), and it would appear I do nothing but spend my days keeping up with about a billion shows - which I would obviously be very happy to do, as would anyone here I think (IF ONLY GRAD SCHOOL AND MY MILLION JOBS WOULD LET THAT BE SO!!) But anyway, SO GLAD tv is back (for real) and it's looking like it's gonna be pretty great - many questions will be raised, many lessons will be learned, many mysteries will be solved, and many gratuitous shots of shirtless men will be appreciated (obviously I'm looking at you, Bradley). It's gonna be a good year.

The Brits just do it better

Wow, so so you think you can dance: uk is like so you think you can dance: for grown-ups. Mature and STILL able to be entertaining. Go figure.

I marathoned the second series in 3 DAYS IT WAS THAT GOOD. And more routines made me smiley/flaily/weepy in only a handful of UK episodes than any ever did in the US version the last couple of seasons (aka: not that many - at least that didn't include Kathryn). SRSLY, WATCH IT.

Want a hint of how fabulous this cast/series was? Here's the Top 4 guys routine - it is INCREDIBLE


If that intruiges you at all, you should check out the fangasm behind the cut. But probably no one will end up looking at this so I'm just doing it for my own amusement but whatever its awesome trololololol

Oh, and Cat manages to be an even more adorable human being hosting in her native land. I thought it was impossible for her to be any cuter, but I was horribly wrong.



Horribly, horribly wrong.

NICK, YOU'RE A TAP DANCER!!

SYTYCD Top 20: FAVORITE DANCE OF THE NIGHT I DON'T EVEN CARE.


Yeah, Melanie and Marko were stunning and I reaaaallly liked Missy and Wadi's routine after watching it a second time (the first time I thought it was just a hot mess), BUT WHATEVER IVETA & NICK'S "QUICKSTEP OF DOOM" WAS PHENOMMMM - IT WAS FUN, THE MUSIC WAS FABBBB, THE DANCING WAS ONNNN, THE CHEMISTRY WAS THERE (SHUT UP I DON'T CARE THAT SHE COULD TOTALLY HAVE BEEN HIS BABYSITTER) AND IT WAS JUST OVERALL FLAW.LESSSSS.

HI GUYS, YOU'RE ADORABLE AND I LOVE YOU.

"sadly, no ballroom." "much like tyce's pants."

HOORAH, so you think you can dance is back! And they've gone back to having a top 20, BUT are also including all-stars once the group is narrowed down to the top 10. I APPROVE OF THIS PLAN. I LOVED getting to see more of Kathryn and Ade and to see how much their dancing had grown in so short a time. If this year's all-stars are half as good as last years, I will be verrrry happy.

Even though my general feelings towards S7 were pretty much as follows:


there were still some fantastic moments that came out of it.

This season’s auditions have been pleasantly surprising, with the contestants they’ve been featuring in the auditions leading up to Vegas trending a bit older than those in S7 – which is fantastic in my opinion because one of my many gripes from last season was that the cast was SO. YOUNG and the judges kept commenting that they needed to “mature” as dancers...Well, what did they expect when they picked kids all under 20??? But these opening episodes have given me hope for this season!

So, in honor of the new crop of so you think you can dance peeps making their way soon onto my screen (and into my heart!), I thought I'd post my favorite dances from the past three seasons - those that left a serious impression, were just loads of fun, that I continually return to on youtube - many of which involve my sytycd-OTP of all time, Kathryn & Legacy from S6.


HOW SO CUTE U GUYS???


[and yeah, this post pretty much became a Kathryn Appreciation post pretty immediately - OH WELL].

And I'm not ashamed to admit that some of these gave (and continue to give) me all kinds of ~~FEELINGS~~

Looking forward to the new season!! But for now, gratuitous Legacy/Kathryn otp vid!



edit: the first time I post after over a month and it's this ridiculousness. LOLOLOL FOR DAYS.

You've come here for a specific reason. I won't be put in the position of guessing.

The theme of this week's the good wife: ALICIA FLORRICK WILL NOT BE TAKING ANYONE'S SHIT TODAY, THANK YOU.

Next week: KALINDA, OMG. You totally deserve it but I just want to wrap you up and hug you and make all the pain go away.

Other than that, I got nothin'. My brain is fried.

But oh River/Eleven, you continue to delight me in every way imaginable. And Rory, keep being awesome, bb. Amy - there is some serious shit going on around you. I have no idea wtf it is, but christ I bet its gonna be fucking ridiculous and fantastic.

Just watched "The Impossible Astronaut", the series premiere of doctor who....

NO. WORDS.
.... EXCEPT:
WHAT???
WHAT IS GOING ON???? I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO THINK.

[some things were easy to see coming a mile away, but others were like WHUUUUUUT??? and just ALL THE EMOTIONS.]


My reactions throughout the episode, Collapse )

I definitely need a rewatch to get a better sense of the episode and all of my ~FEELINGS~; but for now, my message for this series?
