Non-TV news first: I got accepted into the guild I applied to, after a rather nerve-wracking wait and application process (there were interviews - plural! Well, talking, anyway, but they felt like interviews. Or inquisitions....), and I'm in that horrible awkward terrrible phase now of being new and feeling stupid whatever I say and wondering how in the fuck I ever got anyone to ever hang out with me in the past, much less appearantly like me. But yeah, too early to tell how it'll go. I am, however, definitely really enjoying being back as Alliance - I miss my goblin a lot, but I'm also remembering that the Alliance isn't the snobby boring faction I learned to think of it as while being Horde, and I'm loving both my leveling projects (worgen and nelf hunters). Best of all: No Orgrimmar, no ugly buildings, waaay fewer deserts, and a lot more polite players. I sure as fuck do not miss my old server - PVP = not for me. (I do miss my money, though. My precious beautiful goooold. *sob*)

And now, TV:

Sleepy Hollow:
[Spoiler (click to open)]Another SUPER-DELIGHTFUL episode featuring everything I ever wanted this show to do: Ichabod yelling at museum guides! Learning disturbing facts about his old presidential pals! Being appalled about consumerism/bottled water! Using the internet! STUMBLING ACROSS INTERNET PORN! = All things I was hoping for in one way or the other, IDK, at this rate they're gonna out of wishes to fulfill for me that aren't currently unrealistic (Ichabbie making out a bunch - although I'm still crossing my fingers really hard for a love spell gone awry or a lust demon or alternative universe, dream sequence, etc etc). But in the meanwhile, ICHABOD USED THE INTERNET. THERE WAS PORN. IT WAS THE GREATEST.
Plus, this scene?
tumblr_mw5o1rfGAD1qb79r8o6_250
THE CUTEST. Their Nicole/Toms were showing a bit there, I felt, but either way it was delightful and perfect. YOU DORKS.

Also yelly caps for IRVING! FINDING OUT ABOUT EVERYTHING! BEING ACTUALLY SURPRISED ABOUT IT! NOT APPEARANTLY BEING A MASTERMIND/IN ON IT/A WITCH OR SOMETHING! I mean, it might be subverted somehow, but taking things on face value I'm pleasantly surprised - they had me so busy guessing if he was good or evil that I never really stopped to think he might just be a guy who legitimately wanted to see how this thing played out but was seriously hoping it was all pure bullshit. Although thinking about it, he probably still will turn out to be ~something more, but I'd have to go back and look at his scenes again to be sure (which I will, eventually). Still, I hope he turns out to mostly be on Team Badass - I want him, Abbie, Ichabod and Jenny to be the main team, and then Luke, Dead!Andy, Ghost!Corbin and WhoKnows!Katrina can be the "maybe good, maybe evil, maybe just extremely unhelpful" B-team. *nods* This is what I want.

Speaking of: DEAD ANDY - DELIGHTFUL OR DELIGHTFULLEST? He's the snarkiest zombie demon-butler ever and I love it, I should revive my Tumblr and also rename it to include the word zombie now that we know he's decaying. I hope that can be fixed/reversed - he really needs to stick around the show for good.



Lost Girl:
[Spoiler (click to open)]I was feeling pretty pessimistic about the odds of Tamsin being alive, but then I saw the actress was in some sort of pre-show thingy and so now I'm slightly hopeful again - I really want her to be alive. Anyway, the episode was ... weeeeeeeird. Dyson/Kenzi = not a thing I ever wanted to see, with my eyes, EVER - I always friend/sibling-shipped them so hard I just cannot see them being romantic without going EWW NO STOP WHAT ARE YOU DOING. Pretty weird episode otherwise too, and not just because I'd already forgotten half of what happened in the season finale of s3 - although I did appretiate the (mostly) lack of Lauren, and an episode about how Kenzi is awesome and the best can obviously never be all bad. Still, Dyson/Kenzi... Whyyyy. *shudder*
I'm happy Vex is around though, his hammyness is growing on me and I loved it last season when he and Kenzi were friends who traded eyeliner tips.



Other shows haven't been very comment-worthy lately - if I commented on The Walking Dead, for instance, it would mostly go something along the lines of:[Spoiler (click to open)]Hey, did you guys fix the fence yet? You know, the fence that almost gave in but then you SUPER-TEMPORARILY "solved" the problem by killing poor defenseless pigs, and then you just ... appearantly assumed it was all good and no longer a problem? Just shove a few more poles there, because that's been working so great so far? And hey, standing around the fence doing feeble and half-assed attempts at reinforcing it probably doesn't work the zombies up in a frenzy or anything - I mean it's not like you're dangling fresh live meat in front of ravenous beasts or anything -- OH WAIT. So didya fix it yet? No? Is it coming down? Yes? WELL IMAGINE THAT, GO FIGURE, WHO COULDA KNOWN, WATCHA GONNA DO, OOPSY DAISY, SHIT HAPPENS, IF ONLY THERE HAD BEEN SOME SORT OF MAGICAL WAY TO DEDUCE THAT A SIMPLE WIRE FENCE CAN ONLY WITHSTAND SO MUCH PRESSURE. HOW ARE YOU PEOPLE STILL ALIVE???

See? Not very comment-worthy. Instead, here's that meme that basically ALL OF YOU have been doing:

[Loooooooooong list under cut.]- Bold all of the following TV shows of which you've seen 3 or more episodes.
- Italicize a show if you're positive you've seen every episode.
- Asterisk * if you have at least one full season on tape or DVD

General note: May have missed some older ones due to them having other names in Swedish - some of them took me a while to recognize with their original title. Also, a huuuge number of shows I watch are missing from the list.
Note to self: Use this as a checklist for when finally doing that "watch ALL SHOWS EVER" project.

Ahhh you should start with Twin Peaks :D

Also a lot of these shows are AWFUL but someone apparently thought of them and added them to the list. Silver Spoons is actually about a bunch of annoying rich people in the 80's and the kids are always learning "valuable lessons about life" /headdesk

Yeah that one's been on my watchlist a long time, I'm just worried it won't translate well across time - I have a severe allergy to old shows, everything about them makes me itch. Old hairstyles, bad quality video, the acting is almost always slightly hammy ... it's like watching someone's old home movies. *cringe*
As such I think I'd almost prefer to watch the bad ones, atleast then I can freely mock them and not have to force myself to try and appretiate it because it's classic TV that everyone loves.

Not sure if you heard the line at the end of the show, but Dyson said, "Tamsin was the last person to see Bo alive" as he was leaving, so I think she's definitely alive! I didn't watch last season so I'm hoping for ALL THE TAMSIN.

congrats on the guild thing! I didnt even realize they were still a thing. I mean, I have friends who do a lot of LARPing and cosplaying and historical reinactment so *they* have guilds. Unless of course thats what you mean lol.


ugggg needs to catch up on Sleepy Hollow and Lost Girl (Ive missed Tamzin!)

Hehe yeah no, pretty much every MMORPG has guilds or some equivalent thereof, different names but same concept. It's not that unlike LJ with communities really. ^^

ah cool. I've never gotten into MMORPGs (primarily because I'm stuck in the early 90s in regards to gaming consoles and I have the worst internet ever). I'd like to try out the new Star Trek one, but its not compatible for Mac. WTH. hahahaha.
