and a poll, too!  
You know you've been in fandom too long when typing the word "speed" wants to turn into "squee". heh

I have ranted about the Crazy Cat People in my neighborhood before. These are the people who seem to believe feeding their cats is all the responsibility they have. I'm off to animal control where I'm going to have to spend money to rent traps because THEIR cats are breeding like frakking rabbits. HULK SMASH!! Which is not all of the story, but. eugh. vile people. *shudder* Bad neighbors, can't live with 'em, can't kill 'em.

Wow, I realized I only watch, like, five shows that presented at Comic-Con (and I'm already three eps behind on True Blood) and except for TVD and SPN I'm not very fannish about any of them. BAD FANGIRL, no biscuit. I should possibly stir my lazy butt and catch up on SOMETHING, at least.

So here, have a useless poll:

Poll #1598077 TEEVEE

What series should I catch up on before new eps air?

Caprica
8(40.0%)
Chuck
4(20.0%)
Community
0(0.0%)
Fringe
6(30.0%)
Glee
1(5.0%)
Some other show I will tell you about
0(0.0%)
Ticky says teevee is overrated!
1(5.0%)

For your reference, the shows at Comic-Con that I watch are: Burn Notice, White Collar, SPN, Vampire Diaries, True Blood, Dexter, and the last ten minutes of Smallville. I think. That's all I can think of that's been mentioned in the media. Which is kinda sad, isn't it? (eta: oh, Castle had a panel, too, IIRC. It's another I watch if it's on, but I don't cry if I miss one)

We watched the first ep of "Pillars of the Earth" which was interesting. Ian McShane is always a fun villain. I read the book a long time ago, but I don't remember much, so I have no idea how or if they're changing it to make it into an ongoing series. It seems a bit like Rome but set several hundred (ok, more like a thousand) years later. With less nudity, at least so far. *g*

I did, actually, see the season finale, so there's a good chance I'll watch it in fall. My problem with Fringe is that Walter makes me grind my teeth sometimes, so if I fall behind it's very difficult to make myself catch up...

Caprica got so much better as it went on. I am legitimately excited for the last half of the season.
lizardbethlizardbeth_j on July 28th, 2010 01:34 am (UTC)
okay, lots of votes for that. :D

*votes Fringe*

And then you can write Castle/Fringe/V crossovers =D

bwah! I see you have a Sekrit Plan!

Caprica, Caprica, Caprica!
lizardbethlizardbeth_j on July 28th, 2010 01:36 am (UTC)
ok, another vote for Caprica. At least there's not too much to catch up on, plus I have til January.

It was a tough call between Fringe and Caprica, but I am still legitimately giddy over the preview for upcoming Caprica. But both deserve to be watched like whoa!
lizardbethlizardbeth_j on July 28th, 2010 02:14 am (UTC)
Like I said above, I'll probably watch Fringe in the fall anyway, since I did see the finale. Hopefully Walter won't be quite as annoying. John NOble does a fine job, but his character is sometimes really grating on me.

I voted for Chuck, because in my 4-day-long state of being deprived of the internet, I have been clearing out my DVR of episodes, and therefore have been watching a lot of it. But Fringe and Caprica are both very good choices (....I still have to catch up on Fringe...at some point....*sigh* Stupid Stargates taking over my life....)

(The last ten minutes of Smallville? Haha, you don't trust your clock to tell you when SPN starts? :-P)


(Also, forgot to say that I love Community, but it is a sitcom, so it will be easier to catch up on at anytime)

heh, no, it's because that's when kidlet's bedtime is over and I can watch t.v. Eight oclock is a very bad hour for me to try to watch t.v. -- that's why I dropped Chuck in the first place!

Does Community have a laugh track? I hate those. I like comedies that don't have one MUCH better.
