A few things ...

Dollhouse got renewed. I'm happy about that, but also very, very sad because the news was that Fox was leaning towards renewing either DH or Terminator. Obviously, I would have much preferred T:SCC even though I do love DH. I adore T:SCC. In my opinion, it's the best show on television right now and, oh, it's just so sad because it's brilliant tv. Ah well. But yay for Dollhouse and more Enver Gjokaj.

ETA:!! AAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! Castle and Better Off Ted were renewed. Yay, yay, yay, yayyers!!!!!!!!!! These are two of my new favorite shows. So very happy about that. Also thrilled about Lie To Me being renewed. It still has problems and kinks that need to be worked out, but I really do love it and Tim Roth is just, ooh, marvelous.

That leaves T:SCC (still a long shot, but not canceled ... yet, sigh). And, hmm, so they DID renew Scrubs. I do love this show, but it had SUCH a fantastic finale, I don't know. I'll still watch it, but I kinda wish they hadn't renewed it. The entire season was a wrap-up to a series finale, so it feels kinda weird. Hmm.

Survivor )

American Idol )

Oh, yeah, and there was this 'Doctor Who' news ... )

Non-fandom-specific related. I DO NOT understand why people do not realize that any reaction/comment about spoilers/an episode BEFORE the cut is a spoiler. I've been casually spoiled about two significant things twice in the last week because based on the comment (and reading that poster's journal regularly), I knew exactly what happened. Plus, huge, emotional responses -- even without specifics -- SPOIL viewers who haven't seen stuff yet. It's just ... sigh, frustrating. If you're going to talk about a show, your strong emotional reaction, or confirm a supposition you've made countless times actually playing out BEFORE THE CUT? You're spoiling.

Kissing to shut up

Can anyone think of a movie/tv episode where someone kisses someone else to shut them up? It could be drama, comedy, action, movie, tv, guy, girl, whatever. Just where someone kisses someone else to shut them up.

Unconventional Beauty ... hah!

So I was thinking about Jim Parsons and how over the course of the last month or so, the reaction to him has turned toward drooling, flailing, capslock-squeeing over his hotness, etc. Even the media has jumped in a bit, with one reporter calling him sexy, and TV Guide issue that interviewed him had this on their cover:



So, anyhoo, it got me to thinking about my recent fandoms and how all of the guys in them (that I find attractive) are not the stereotypical, conventional "hunks" that one usually hears drooled about in the media. The two things they have in common are: amazing talent and jaw-dropping charisma. Apparently for me, and those with who I share the fandom, that's enough to make one drool ... even if the guys aren't the cliched H'wood beauty. (Although, admittedly, some come closer than others).

Check 'em out ... in alphabetical order. )

So Derek and Mark's band (now called Ballas Hough Band) have a new song, and the video is ADORABLE!!! It's mostly this season's cast of celebs and pros, as well as some other appearances, and honestly, it's just such a delight to watch.

JACKMAN PLANS CAROUSEL TRIP WITH OSCARS PARTNER HATHAWAY

HUGH JACKMAN is trying to persuade his Oscars dancing partner ANNE HATHAWAY to join him on the CAROUSEL.

The Aussie star has developed a script for the beloved Stephen Sondheim musical and he wants Hathaway to play Julie Jordan opposite his Billy Bigelow. He says, "I've been looking to do a musical film for some time and after things like Moulin Rouge!, Chicago and Hairspray, I think there's a real opportunity there."

And he's clear only Hathaway will do as his leading lady: "I've been filling up her answering machine with messages about Carousel."

Hathaway, who joined Jackman for a song and dance at the Oscars, is about to embark on her own musical journey - she will star in a new theatre and film adaptation of The Wizard of Oz star Judy Garland's life.

Source
(Yeah, and the article got it wrong, it's Rodgers & Hammerstein, not Sondheim.)

I have no idea if the source is reliable or not, I just really, really want this because they have SUCH good chemistry. Yes, it's a really messed-up relationship and such, but I think they could both do so good with it. Sigh, I know, won't happen, but man if it did ...

Dollhouse - Awesome!!!

Bottom-line, Dollhouse really does kick ass. It's such a shame that it will most likely be canceled because it really is turning out to be quite an excellent show. Sure the two leads (Eliza Dushku and Tamoh Penikett) are by far the weakest links, but neither of them is horrible. They are both good (with Penikett being better than Dushku), with enough moments of great here and there (with Penikett delivering more than Dushku) to make them work. Still, despite their lack of OMYGOD!greatness, the rest of the cast is SO FRICKIN' PHENOMENAL that they make up for it. And the best continues to be Enver Gjokaj as Victor. This guy is just amazing. If the show does get canceled, if there is any justice in casting, he WILL get something else. And whatever he gets? I'm there. He is AWESOME!!!

There were people fighting on me. )

Me and JJ Abrams

I just realized something tonight.

I watched Felicity and then stopped after season two or three.
I watched Alias and then stopped after season four.
I watched Lost and then stopped mid-season three.

I am watching Fringe now.

Hmm, if it sticks around, something tells me that I won't be watching it beyond a finite number of seasons. JJ always loses me for some reason or another.

The thing about reality tv contestants

My favorite left on Survivor is Sierra. A few days ago I read some press and information on her from people who knew her that was less than flattering. And then I felt slightly guilty because, damnit!, I still liked her, but I realized something. Even though, technically, these are real people just being themselves in these reality shows, really they are molded by the editors to tell a story, create characters to love, hate and in-between. So perhaps the real Sierra isn't all that likable, but for me, the 'character' Sierra as edited by Survivor is. It was the same case for Sugar last year, as well as countless other reality tv contestants throughout the years.

Moral of the story: The real person may not be someone that I would admire or even like in real life, but as they are edited, like with any admitted scripted show, I fall for the characters I like. It's as simple as that. Reality be damned.

I know that I have some Harry/Hermione fans on my flist, and I've been hunkering to read some good H/Hr. So I'm looking for longer fics with plot, going AU from book 5 preferably, but I could deal with AU from book 6 if it makes sense. I also likes the smut. At least R. So any recs?
