So many thoughts, shows!

First of all,I watched "Silence in the library" as part of my continuing quest to watch DW completely ackbasswards. River is, of course, fabulous. And heart-breaking. I... don't immediately feel as attached to Ten and Donna as I did with Eleven and Amy. *head tilty* perhaps they will grow on me. Still haven't had a chance to watch the next one, so plz don't spoil me.

Speaking of DW,I am thinking I must do a separate recap post for Black Spot because I HAVE SO MANY RIDICULOUS things I think about while watching this show.

I also have complicated feelings about TVD, so I have to wait and see that one again I think. Or maybe that's the wrong word -- I'm not sure I care about what happened? I should, but I'm not sure I do. maybe it's just me, though, being spoiled and prepared, and generally wiped out lately.

Nikita is pretty damn perfect. show, plz don't leave me.

And Supernatural reaffirmed that my heart belongs to Castiel, and I'm sorry but that's just the way it is. I empathize with him more than I do anyone else, even when he's doing bad things Poor bb, you know the answer or you wouldn't be so troubled. Favorite ep of the season, hitting one of my narrative kinks: well-intentioned acts that go awry.

I had the same reaction watching older eps of Doctor Who to be honest -- Ten & co. just didn't grab me the way that Eleven and Amy did. I think it's just a personal "my Doctor" kind of preference. :) Some eps (like the library ones!) are really good though.

you know, there's that. but then I remember I did technically start out with Nine and Rose. I liked both of them okay, and the eps were well--done, but obviously my failure to continue with them past "Doctor Dances" meant they didn't quite grab me enough somehow. So IDEK - but in any case, I'm glad to be watching now.

Reverse here.

at least I have lots more Ten to try (and it's not that I don't like him; but I have to admit that whole opener with the stetson in IA --- I am a sucker for dramatic entrances). it's interesting on a technical level to see how the versions are similar and yet different.

I've seen maybe half a dozen DW eps that star Ten (in addition to the two parter that stars River) and so far, nothing has compelled me to get caught up on the Ten era. I will eventually. Probably. But I was caught within the first five minutes with Eleven and have watched each of the eps he's in multiple times. Take that as you will. ;)

Speaking of getting caught up, I'm still about 4 eps behind on Supernatural (and all frakking SEASON on TVD), so I'm just at the point where it's clear Castiel is engaging in activities that are troubling to him. The last ep I watched was Frontierland, which I actually liked quite well, in spite of the fact that all was reset instead of figuring out a way to go forward with an AU where Ellen and Jo are still alive.

DW is a very strange beast of a show somehow in my brain, I don't even know. IT CROSSES OVER TOO EASILY. this is a problem.

Wait, you mean "My Heart Will go on"? Cuz that's where the reset happens. Frontierland is the Wild West of Deadwood ep (and should've come before but they swapped them for FX work).

So many funny lines and references -- but one's really sweet. Bobby references DS9 which was the show his wife worked on (she passed away last year). apparently the original ref was to Next gen but JB had them change it. *sniff*
